Let’s look at the titles, the plugs, and the names.
Let’s remember what the Washington Post is and what role it plays in the Empire.
Notice too the editorializing. I have never, in my entire life, seen the mass media use such editorializing language about a sitting President and one of the two major political parties. This is reflected also in the “Social Media” – Facebook, Google, Twitter, Wikipedia – putting “warnings” and “debunkings” on the Internet messages of public officials, even the President.
The mass media is run by a handful of men:
Bob Iger (ABC), Jeffrey Zucker (CNN), Jeff Shell (NBC), Les Moonves (CBS), Meredith Kopit Levien (NYT), Lachlan Murdoch (FOX), Fred Ryan (WP).
The commenters on the Washington Post articles are typically no different than the commenters on the Huffington Post or Salon – purely partisan Democrats, perhaps most literally professional Democratic party activists.
It’s interesting that maybe two or three thousand people make up “the official media” and “the democratic consensus” via their absolute control of the major electronic media corporations.
They used to zealously guard their supposed reputation of “bipartisanship” but after the New York Times made the announcement five years ago, all major media corporations have become openly partisan – this goes for both the “mainstream media” as well as the “social media” of Silicon Valley.
Now they are openly censoring the sitting President of the United States, and refusing to broadcast official White House press briefings from the White House, and declaring that the President is “falsely” claiming to have won the election. Instead, the major media corporations are openly declaring Joe Biden as “President Elect” even though the Electors have not even been named yet.
Interestingly, former Google executive Eric Schmidt is expected to be named to a future Biden administration, and interestingly is at the same time securing citizenship in a foreign country.
Just in case, perhaps.
Current State Department Chief and former CIA director Mike Pompeo has stated that he expects “a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
Meanwhile, former CIA director John Brennan is appealing to Vice President Mike Pence to “invoke the 25th Amendment” because he fears President Trump might “release some type of information that could in fact threaten our national security interests.”
