The Battle Lines Are Drawn

The Battle Lines Are Drawn

Yesterday The Main Stream Media was meeting with President Elect Trump at Trump Tower. Dont think you will see this on NBC or CNN. The executives and reporters thought they were there to get an outline for future TV/Network coverage.

President-elect Donald Trump met with top reporters and anchors from mainstream media outlets at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly admonished them for their biased coverage during the presidential race.

The meeting was reportedly “off the record,” but a source told the New York Post that the scene was reminiscent of a “firing squad.”
The New York Post reports:
President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post.
“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source.
“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

This is totally different for the networks, as they have been part and parcel of the propaganda spewing from the Obama Administration and the recent Clinton campaign.

If you will recall that when Obama was first inaugurated, he hired a number of journalists. This set the tone for the next 8 years. The MSM has carried Obamas agenda without any critique.
The word 'propaganda'  comes to mind.

Next up on the media meeting list was the New York Times. That meeting was promptly changed and cancelled. I guess they had rather avoid the butt chewing they richly deserved.

Here's the thing. This is something that the MSM just doesn't get. Trump was voted in BECAUSE of the actions of the MSM. Everybody in American can see exactly what is going on...except the MSM.

Its a blindness, that is not uncommon. When Jesus walked among us, he taught truths. When He taught, he gave examples in Parables, stories designed to showcase what He was trying to get across. Those people who could understand, got it. He would also say something like, "Those who have ears to hear" meaning, sometimes a plain story gets overlooked or misunderstood.

I have a 10 year old son who loves video games. If he is in the midst of a game and I ask him to do something, like take out the garbage, he will nod and say OK....but immediately go back to the game and forget his mandate to take out the garbage.

The MSM is on the lookout for a boogeyman villain to blame for their candidates loss. Do you see the conflict here? The MSM should have NO candidate. They should be unbiased, they should be able to present without bigotry and prejudice the news. IF the MSM has a candidate, they will inherently be biased towards that person and against any challenger. 

The Wiki Leaks emails regarding the Clinton attacks on Bernie Sanders is a case in point.

So now the initial battle is underway. The battle for the minds and control of the American people. We as 'consumers' of news and media, need to be on our toes and not to be deceived or sidetracked by them.

The next battle is also forming up...that is the battle for our money.
