Conservative “Media” Protecting / Advancing “Their” Candidates…

And by try, we mean generally failing miserably. 

By now almost everyone has awakened to how media manipulates and advocates.  It is very easy to see who corporate media support, both democrat and republican, and also increasingly easier to see why.

As an example the Wall Street Journal support Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.  National Review also support Bush / Rubio – the establishment selections.  However, ideological alignment, and specific intent to create candidate benefit, should be noted and given attention when various levels of nuance are noticed.

There is another aspect that needs to be discussed regarding espoused views of “conservative media”. Everyone should pay attention to the Super-PAC spending, and campaign spending, as it relates to opinions that ultimately come from those media entities.

There is massive campaign spending taking place particularly amid talk radio formats (Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, and Salem Media Networks as examples), it is disingenuous in the extreme not to notice the espoused views from punditry are impacted by the financial benefits afforded them via campaign, and special interest, ad revenues.

They are not going to cut off their nose and spite their pocketbooks. Period.

Last week we highlighted how Fox News specifically modified their broadcast and punditry coverage to facilitate the selling of a specific agenda regarding immigration. Fox broadcasting does not hold a monopoly at broadcasting messages based on their own vested-financial-interests.

Example:

$350,000 for ads on the Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity national talk radio shows. Those early ads played a critical role in giving credibility to the candidacy of Dr. Carson and in persuading Dr. Carson to run. (link)

In addition to vested financial interests – there are ideological interests embedded within the corporate media networks and everything coming from punditry and employees within that media entity are bound to espouse an aligning view.

Never confuse the overlay of media news/current events, with modern corporate media political ideology. Ted Turner did not start CNN just to broadcast current events, he was creating a media platform.

Evolution of this approach extends beyond broadcast into social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. When you engage on those platforms you are engaging with a venue controlled by a set of ‘filters’ and objectives you may or may not agree with.

Various media platforms have ideologies behind them. The intersection of politics with that platform creates the influence – hence, Facebook Mark Zuckerburg and the left-wing social media machine.

Controlling information, controlling the platform, especially in conjunction with corporate political interests, is an ever increasing quest for those who need to influence opinion in order to advance their collective goals.

Sometimes those goals are purely political:

Sometimes those collective goals have a specific motive and intent:

…But the bottom line is all of the participants have a vested interest in influencing our opinions, and, as a consequence, our actions:

salem media communications

Salem Media Group

Stuart W. EppersonChairman of the Board – A High-Fidelity Messenger – Long before Rush Limbaugh proved that radio listeners would flock to unapologetically opinionated chat, 10-year-old Stuart Epperson was reading Bible verses from a radio station his brother built in their family’s Virginia farmhouse. By age 36, Epperson had bought an AM station in Roanoke, Va., that would be the beginning of a religious and political broadcasting powerhouse.

Salem Communications, the company Epperson, now 69, later founded with his brother-in-law Edward Atsinger, owns 104 radio stations in 24 of the top 25 U.S. markets and reaches an estimated 5 million listeners a week. The broadcaster’s stations offer Christian music and teaching, as well as conservative talk shows that engage listeners not just to consider hot-button issues like abortion and stem-cell research but also to weigh in with letter-writing campaigns and phone calls to politicians. (Time Magazine 2005 Profile link)

This is why it is important to see how challenging it is for any American Patriot, as a candidate, to break through the concentric walls of special interest and get their genuine message to the electorate.

♦ As if on cue, it only took a few days for another glaring example to surface.  This time from Right Scoop, a pro-Cruz advocacy new-media website sponsoring majority content and message delivery from Salem Media Inc.

Apparently the story of Syrian refugees arriving in New Orleans was a risk to someones’ pro-Cruz agenda, and, despite Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s confirmation, for some odd reason the (Mark Levin content driven) site, Right Scoop, found it necessary to refute it.

The issue, it appears, is how the Syrian refugees are pictured – as depicted in this article from The Hayride:

syrian refugees 2

( Source Link )

 

The picture shows Syrian Refugees (arriving in Hungary), and for all intents and purposes reflects an accurate depiction of all other EU photographs showing the same.  Mostly 18 to 45-year-old males, few women and/or children.

Here’s another example in Greece:

mass migration

Again, almost all males with a few women and children disbursed.   This aligns with various EU print reports showing 85% of the “refugees” are middle-eastern males.  The remaining 15% women and children.

However, in a really silly effort to refute the truth – the Right Scoop uses this picture:

right scoop yazidi

( Source Link )

The picture above shows the Yazidi community fleeing ISIS in Northern Iraq and headed into the Sinjar Mountains.   Iraq, not Syria.

You can only identify traditional refugee families (women and children) in the Yazidi story.   It appears in an effort to refute the true imagery of Syrian Refugee composition, the Ted Cruz team need to try and convince readership using images of Yazidi’s in Northern Iraq.

The weird question is why?

beck and cruzPerhaps this has something to do with the weakness of Ted Cruz when it comes to immigration and his flip/flops:

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on Immigration

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on Birthright Citizenship

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on TPP and TPA Support

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on Marijuana Issue

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on FEMA and Federal Aid

♦ Ted Cruz Flip/Flops on VISA Program

Perhaps Ted Cruz supporters find themselves on the losing end of reality and need to manufacture distractions.  Perhaps Ted Cruz supporters are just maintaining the currency of falsehood that is essentially a hallmark of the Cruz campaign.

Maybe advocates are concerned the Syrian refugee story will be compared to the silliness of the Soccer Ball and Teddy Bear campaign that turned out to be a fictitious unaccompanied alien children crisis during the summer of 2014.

Or maybe, just maybe, they are fearful of being left out of the policy issue.  A policy discussion they have wind-tested and reflects an actual risk to their candidates prior position.  Who really knows for sure.

What is certain is this.

The picture on the left is indeed Syrians.  The picture on the right is not:

jihad in New Orleansyazidi 3 sooper mexican

And Syrian refugees have actually arrived in New Orleans.

      You say ‘Levin is definitely one of us.’ I disagree completely. Do you have transcripts of Levin’s shows for the past 3 years? That’s what it would require to back up your statement. To my knowledge, Levin doesn’t provide daily transcripts of his shows like Rush does. I used to hang on every word Levin said, thought he was the only hope. About 3 years ago I noticed a big change. I’ve kept notes and transcribed some of his statements from podcasts. Levin is deeply tied to the GOP E and they to him. He’ll forever be in the Reagan administration. Levin loves Hugh Hewitt, had him on the show once and the two raved about what great, great people both George Bushes were. The Bushes destroyed this country and the GOP and sold the US out to globalists. They’re not great guys. Levin also talked up CPAC in the past year, said they’ve really changed for the better, etc. CPAC hasn’t changed one bit. CPAC is a co-opt outfit. Levin is willing to be co-opted and then to co-opt others by selling CPAC. Co-opting is the major tool the GOP uses to silence opposition.

        hi there Chili

        on Marl Levin, just as other media types, they have some issues that are favorable to the Globalist agenda, though they are Conservative leaders

        both Hewitt and Levin were part of Reagan’s administration, which up to that time had more Trilateralists-CFR members then any other President

        the Globalist-NeoCon and the Reagan Administration were favorable to advancing a Constitutional Convention of the States (34) in an excuse to get a Balanced Budget amendment

        Mark Levin still pushes for a Con-Con, i realize the Constitution stands in the way of the World Gov agenda, and opening it up for re-writing or scraping the way the Articles of Confederation was would result in disaster

        SunDance has shown how the Donor Class has influence with individual State GOPe leaders, and how they have been changing election rules in some States (see research on Colorado and North Carolina) in order to favor Jeb Bush, it is laughable how Patriots could possibly push Con-Con and yet not even CONTROL their own State GOPe Leaders

    ” . . .it is disingenuous in the extreme not to notice the espoused views from punditry are impacted by the financial benefits afforded them via campaign, and special interest, ad revenues. . .”

    Well said, Sundance. As the campaign progresses and the GOPe becomes more desperate the pressure on “conservative” new outlets and talk-show hosts will become much more pronounced.
    It will be our responsibility to be alert to the signs and then call them on it when we see them moving from commentary to spinning. If you’re paying attention you’ll be able to tell when they shift into paid-information mode. Glenn Beck and Hannity are shameless about doing this. One moment they’re talking about a real issue and then, without telling you their selling a product, they neatly segue into a sales pitch for gold or survival food. Rush used to do this a lot more than he does now. At least he’ll generally let you know that it’s paid advertisement time. Hannity and Beck don’t and it really shows in their delivery.

    It’s one thing to do this for a company selling a product (even though I think it’s stinks) but it something else entirely when Fox or talk-radio hosts start shilling for a candidate that’s just dumped a huge ad buy into their coffers. When that happens start calling them! I doubt you get through, but their call screeners are part of their production staff and when the switchboards light up with complaints they’ll know it. The only thing people in the broadcast biz fear worse than loss of sponsor revenue is a loss of audience. Trust me, they’ll pay attention to these kinds of complaints.

    I appreciate this article very much! I am presently in my eighties and over the past years have been studying people who have written extensively about this very subject. SD is very prescient in presenting this subject at this time, and I might add has truly been presenting facts about this very subject for a while now. The basic truth of this matter is that we have been propagandized by all of these elites for longer than any of us can remember! The advent of TV placed in the control of these people has essentially been a disaster for the culture. So many treatises have been written on this subject, it would take to long to name them all! Of course at the top of the list would probably “1984”. Another would be Diane West’s tome on Betrayal of America under the Roosevelt presidency. The comments above all address the subject by real people who are aware of this problem! My gratitude for this blog site!!!

      nice of you to bring up books in connection to this article, the one that most seals it for me is Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley

      I can tell, just by people who post comments, if they believe there is a conspiracy of the financial powers and control of corporation for their Globalist agenda

    The bigger question is control for the GOPe & democrats.

    In the TPP they are hungry to control online content by protecting copyright & impede sharing hyperlinks:

    “The US is also calling for criminal sanctions for copyright infringement, even where the infringement isn’t being carried out for commercial reasons.

    If the US gets its way, then criminal penalties will apply even against users who were not seeking financial gain from sharing or making available copyrighted works”

    Guess what the penalties would be?

    “universal minimum term, whether life-plus-50-years, life-plus-70 or life-plus-100.”

    Me just simply hyperlinking this article will give me jail time. TPP must be stopped.

    I’m glad I found this post. Yesterday I saw on BB a ‘cruz distinguishes his immigration platform from Rubio…’ headline. The commenters were all in for Cruz. The language on BB did not mention deportation or anything relevant to the current alien crowd in the country. A quick scan of the actual page on Cruz’s website mentions deportation, but not specific to exactly who will be deported. Later, he mentions deportation of criminal illegals. Still later he mentions permanent detention centers in the US.

    The language is soft, squish-ily couched phrasing, with some of it almost meaningless (180-day suspension of H1-B visas) and reminiscent of a three-ring circus. I can see lots of holes there.

    It may distinguish itself from Rubio, but Cruz still does not mention exactly what happens to the people already here that don’t belong. I don’t trust it. I don’t trust Cruz who has shown his willingness to dump on the citizens of the USA. Neither do I trust Breitbart, who has lost complete control of its common board, and for what reason escapes me.

    To my way of thinking, it is a smokescreen meant primarily to fool the voters into abandoning Trump, which makes way for the GOPe. My opinion, only.

    Every four years, the Republican establishment nominates a Dole or a Bush or a McCain or a Romney and then pressure us to support said candidate because the “Democrat will be worse”. I’m already getting pressured from friends telling me I have to support the Republican candidate because Hillary will be worse. Well, I don’t happen to think so. Bad as Hillary is, she’s not as stupid as Jebbush or as slimy as Marco Romeo (sic). Furthermore, the definition of insanity is to keep doing what we’ve been doing and expecting different results. We’ve been supporting the Republican establishment candidate and our country has gone to hell in a handbasket whether we had a Republican OR a Democrat in office. What did W. do about closing the borders? I will not be bullied into voting for whom the Establishment nominates again. I will vote Third Party, stay home or write Trump’s name in. I’m done being jerked around by the Establishment. And, yes, the WSJ and Fox News are ALL IN for the Establishment.

    • It does not help to defeat Lord Cornwallis, if you put Benedict Arnold in command – agree with your sentiments – enough is enough. The Cochran-McDaniel senate race in Mississippi made it clear that the GOPe will do whatever it takes to avoid actually doing anything they promise to win votes.

        Agreed. I think most of us have been on to the GOPe/donor/ruling/professional conservative/pundit class but the debacle in Mississippi sealed it for me.
        I am an avid listener of Limbaugh, Levin, Berry and my local guy here. I don’t think they are sellouts. I’ll keep my powder dry.

    I believe that both Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz called for only admitting Christians from Syria over the weekend. That perked my ears up for phoniness. How does anyone think the courts would allow a religious test for refugees? While the court fight is going on, Obama will be bringing in the 250,000 Syrians and “conservatives” will be saying, “See, our guys are fighting for us!” Distraction, in other words.

    Rubio has been attacking Cruz for trying to quintuple the number of H1B visas. I haven’t heard whether Cruz has denied that in any way. Over the weekend, Trump’s advisor/lawyer Michael Cohen affirmed that Trump wants to put a hold on legal immigration until things sort out. Thats a logical position. If everyone is agreeing that theres something wrong with our immigration system, don’t make it worse.

    In my humble opinion, Cruz is a shyster masquerading as a conservative martyr, one voice against the juggernaut, blah blah blah. That’s a very compelling image. But as soon as you start peeling off the gold plating, you notice a globalist bought and paid for by special interests. It is not even all that hard to see if one is not distracted by his dramatic performance.
    To be honest, his preachy voice, theatrics, and carefully constructed lawyery rhetoric are simply annoying to me.

    I was wondering who was behind RightScoop because I it’s obvious they’re in the tank for Cruz. However, they do have articles on Trump a lot but most of the time make critical remarks about him while praising everything Cruz. I guess we don’t know for sure, but sounds likely it’s Salem.
    So I did a quickie research on Salem Media.

    From Wikipedia
    Among its founding members were: Paul Weyrich…..served on Council for National Policy

    Cruz connected to controversial Paul Weyrich:

    “In March of 1987, Paul Weyrich wrote .. A Conservative’s Lament, which appeared in the Washington Post. He stated in that article,”We need some type of shadow government, in which leaders and top advisors can be identified and developed, and through which our politics can be better focused on policy choices. The world is a professional league, and we cannot win fielding amateur teams.” Obviously, we have this “shadow government” in the Council on Foreign Relations. One wonders who is grooming Ted Cruz.”

    http://newswithviews.com/Nelson/kelleigh200.htm

    Also the CEO/founder Edward Atsinger III was a Perry supporter. Perry is an unabashed Establishment person.

    Re the story – yes, I noticed that and bothered me – mocked whoever brought this up and intimated whatever site (this one included) this came from was very questionable.
    I wonder who those people are? Sometimes they delete info that is negative to Cruz.

    Re Cruz – yes, I’m afraid he seems to be about the slickest in the bunch and being used to take votes from Trump. I still try to post truths. Thanks for the info here………..

    Re Mark Levin – I wonder about him too. His push for the Convention of States is disturbing:

    “The Constitutional Convention, ..that’s being sold to the legislators is a lie and has to be stopped. At least three White House advisers and officials, including President Obama’s regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, have ties to an effort funded by billionaire George Soros to push for a new “progressive” U.S. Constitution by the year 2020.”
    American Constitution Society (ACS). ACS is the main organization behind the Con-Con movement to ensure a more “progressive” constitution, having received more than $2,201,500 from Soros’ Open Society since 2002. The funders for ACS are the Barbra Steisand Foundation, the Sandler Foundation, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundations….. has connections to various elitist organizations.
    Michael P. Farris is Head of Convention of the States Project ..President of Parentalrights.org in which Council on Foreign Relation (CFR) member Grover G. Norquist is the Director.
