cBS’s “assault revolver”

With a “high-capacity magazine,” no less.

A wheel gun with a magazine, huh? Too funny. And very stoopid.

The #WalkAway Movement

“In 2016, the Democrat media complex ignored the massive grassroots movement that came out in support for Trump, dismissing his massive rallies and popularity online as somehow insignificant. Now they are dismissing the #WalkAway campaign as a propaganda movement. Once again, something genuine and significant is happening across the nation, and it’s getting ignored or ridiculed by media elites. It doesn’t matter. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the movement is getting bigger and bigger with each day and there’s nothing an elite can do to stop it.”

Only independent journalists (and their editors) are capable of discerning new things. The Mediacrats are anything but independent.

The Political-Industrial Complex

We’ve all heard, ad nausea, of the military-industrial complex. But how many of us know about the political version?

“…today, government, politicians, and big corporations might as well be one and the same. Their self-interests are inextricably intertwined. Members of Congress serving on pivotal committees solicit contributions—legal payoffs—from the very special interests they’re supposed to oversee…Congress ends up protecting and defending those it should be watchdogging.

“Likewise, federal agencies view the companies and industries they’re supposed to regulate as ‘clients’ and ‘stakeholders.’ These agencies are largely bought and paid for. They act as partners working in tandem for a common purpose…Big corporations write and approve press releases that the government issues. As allies they hold closed meetings and make decisions about matters of public interest without the public’s input. And because they make the rules: it’s all legal.”

Via a good, easy to read 2014 book about the Obama Administration: “Stonewalled,” by former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

She also contends journalism is dying, especially the investigative kind, and acted mainly as cheerleaders for Obama. Which led to their insane attacks on President Trump. Next time you hear Bronco say he had a scandal-free presidency think of this book. Well worth your time and money.

The origin of Fake News

The term did not originate with President Trump, as commonly believed and repeated by the Mediacrats, but by orchestrated “corporate, political, news, and special interests,” according to investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, “who want to dominate the narrative and crush information that’s contrary.”

She says it was launched in September, 2016, and “quickly followed by an October announcement from President Barack Obama, in which he claims there’s a burning need to ‘curate’ news on behalf of the public. From that point forward, the topic of fake news dominates headlines on a daily basis. It’s as if the media has its assigned narrative and is marching forward…it isn’t the public that’s clamoring for content to be filtered, censored, or otherwise ‘curated.'”

Trump soon picked it up and made it his own in February, 2017, by denouncing the anti-Trump “fake news” of the NYTimes, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC and dubbing them the “enemy of the American people.”

Since then the Mediacrats have dropped Trump’s specificity and claimed that he called all of the news media the enemy of the people. That, my friends, is real fake news.

The newsroom shooting

It’s a fantasy of some journalists, to imagine what it would be like to confront a disgruntled reader/viewer with a grudge and a gun.

Some people take the news media entirely too seriously. Some of them are journalists who feel their work is a calling, rather than merely an interesting, somewhat overworked, somewhat underpaid, racket. The news biz.

Somewhat overworked are the reporter/writers. Most of the middle-manager editors are seriously overworked. And the pay varies from paltry to lucrative, depending. Mrs. Charm was one of the latter, by both measures, as for 35 years I was one of the former, so I know.

And, yes, I sometimes imagined what it would be like if a disgruntled reader/viewer walked off the elevator at my longest gig and started shooting.

For one thing s/he would have taken out people in features and the copy desk which were nearest the elevators. The people who seldom wrote anything controversial though they may have edited it. It was not hard to imagine s/he getting through the lobby with a long gun, let alone a more easily concealed handgun. Security was lax in my day.

Not that shootings such as happened this week in Maryland were rare, though they usually afflicted the post office. At any rate a newsroom shooting never happened in my day. The disgruntled certainly existed but they mainly confined themselves to impassioned rants and lawsuits.

Fortunately. But not for me. I didn’t work anywhere near the elevators. I would have been far from the action, which would have remained only a fantasy.

UPDATE:  Much is being made now by writers/editors of Trump’s old (February, 2017) remark that the “fake news media” (specifically: NYTimes, CNN, NBC News, ABC, CBS) are the “enemy of the American people.” I can see how it could be twisted by a criminal like the Annapolis guy to justify killing any media. But it was/is certainly true of the anti-Trump NYTimes and cable and otherwise broadcasters who go on and on and on 24/7 with the full-hysteria, often fake Democrat narrative.

The Mediacrats in general have always hated Republicans and now Trump especially because he fights back. When you focus on one side of the argument, because it’s your side, you’re not doing “the people” of “your community” any favor. You are, in fact, their enemy. But you shouldn’t be killed or wounded because of it.
