More Manipulative Media Exposed – Website Ownership Driving Ideological Content…

There are many aspects to the 2016 presidential race which could be called “eye-opening”.  For many of us one of the biggest revelations is how the content of ‘new media’ (information, news and discussion websites) is actually owned by entities who set them up for specific propaganda purposes.  It really is jaw-dropping when you dig into it.

a17b2-hip-replacement-recall-briberyBillionaire Robert Mercer purchasing Breitbart.Com is perhaps one of the more well known ideological political purchases.  A complete usurpation of the legacy of the founder in an effort to create content favorable to the candidacy of Ted Cruz.  Mercer purchased Breitbart for $11 million and then founded Cruz’s super-PAC with another $10+ million.

Almost all of the most well-known ‘new media’ entities are owned by Wall Street individuals or Wall Street corporate groups for very specific advocacy purposes.  None of their intentions are good.  The ‘new media’ are now just as compromised as mainstream media.  Another example surfaces today.

An intrepid indy blog “Dispatches from The North Country“, discovers The Daily Wire is actually owned by the Wilks brothers, Levi and Farris Wilks.  These two are the other end of the Ted Cruz financial team, and massive multi-million dollar donors to Cruz’s presidential bid.  Ben Shapiro is the front-man for The Daily Wire.

[…]  Further research had shown that the owners of this company is none other then the Wilks Brothers.  Levi Wilks is listed as the Manager of Forward Publishing and has ties to 7 Pillar Records LLC.  In turn 7 Pillar is run by a fellow named Farris Wilks.  Farris is famous for being a real Texas Success Story, going from Brick Layer to Oil and Gas Tycoon to Church Preacher.  

These are the very same Texas Billionaires who gave an impressive $15 million to a Ted Cruz Super PAC. Why haven’t we been told about this?  This looks like if The Times invested a lot of money into GM and then ran articles about how the only car that doesn’t stick is a Chevy.  (read more)

Several months ago Matt Drudge told about this corruption taking place, however he never gave specifics of who was behind what operation.  As the presidential race continues it is amazing to witness how many websites are actually just front groups for ownership advocacy.

There are some instances where the ownership and intent is transparent, such as the Salem Media Group.  However, for most of the outlets, the design money is quietly hidden below the surface and paying off the fronts to deliver specific advocacy content.

    • Wiki/Michelle_Fields > daughter of Emmy winning screenwriter Greg Fields, poly-sci grad of Pepperdine, Fox newsreader tart and CUB reporter for Breitbart got bumped at Trump event and has filed Misdemeanor Assault charges against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Ms Fields (28) says ” I never wanted to be the story”…but…

      LOOK AT ME ! LOOK AT ME ! ! ! I’M A VICTIM ! ! !

      Classic…White/Gender/Elite Prividledge….oh wait, her mom is Hondurian, so throw in the Hispanic race card. When Miriam Carey made a wrong turn in DC, Oct 2013, she was shot five times in the back and her family still has no autopsy, explanation or apology. The only upside to BB is that they do not spike comments as much as others, so citizen journalists can have a say. BTW I have met a half dozen BB reporters who have been spiked.

        Serial Liar Michelle Fields.
        This is a list of her false allegations to date:
        Allen West
        Robert Kennedy
        Charles Johnson
        Corey Lewandowski

        Her boyfriend is Daily Caller editor slimy Jamie Weinstein. (She was fired from DC)
        She filed the charges against Corey three days after the alleged incident.
        No video exists of this event despite the fact hundreds of ameras and phones were present.
        She admits she didn’t see whoever it as that “allegedly” grabbed her although a WaPO reporter said HE saw Corey do it.

        Breitbart has now come out and admitted the initial reports the incident was caused by Corey is not verifiable – after days of smearing him and Trump.

        I could go on.

    It’s clear trump has been planning this run for years. I’m sure he has sources and friends within many organizations. I think it’s very possible some who seem anti trump at this time are not what they appear. To make a run against an entrenched establishment requires sophisticated thinking. I do not think trump is nieve. He could not possibly be successful without this type of planning. I’m keeping an open mind.

    In her zeal for fame ad money Fields has miscalculated when she filed not realizing that news media has come up with video feeds to DISPROVE Fields’ claim. Bad timing. And I really hope Lewandowski will now destroy her and Breitbart along with the WaPo reporter Terris who is the one who perpetrated this LIE when Terris told Fields that it was Lewandowski who pushed her down, she DID NOT SEE WHO DID.

    And with the videos now, not even clear if she fell to begin with. Only a Secret Service guy was next to her when it supposedly took place, good luck telling Secret Service they cannot do their job when we now have a very clear picture of Fields extending her arm to grab Trump. She should be lucky she was not body slammed or worse, who knows what is in her hand when she tried to tap Trump?

    I really, REALLY hope Trump’s attorneys go full scale on this, destroy the lying shill and make the rest of her life miserable, she has already done damage Allen West.

          Fields is a serial accuser. She cannot perform the basic functions of her job (she was fired from Daily Caller by Tucker Carlson for being ‘unproductive’) so she goes around in high heel platform shoes and falls, trips and blames others for the attention it brings her. I’ve had noticed that one of the Secret Service agents resembled Corey Lewandowski and was not surprised she blamed him. She got too close, stumbled, grabbed and was rebuffed for her arrogance, probably. Typical Liberal education nincompoop.

          This incident has been the lead story on every news channel for the last two days. They are having a ‘Fields’ day with it, demanding an apology and his firing. The ‘Twitter war’ that was breathlessly reported this morning between the boyfriend and Corey totaled THREE tweets from Lewandowski over maybe an hour and a half yesterday.

          I agree that Michelle Fields must serve as an example, like Mr. Trump says. If you settle, or don’t pursue remedies, everybody else will sue you as well. She is a serial grievance monger and needs to know she poked a bear this time.

      As I watched the video several times, I saw Lewandowski’s arm extended but the view was blocked. Next visible view of her was when they had just passed her and she is still on her feet. there was no knock down. total lie. I hope Corey files a slander suit against her.

      I agree. My only hesitation is that I have seen what appears to be an evolution of thought on the comments section on Breitbart in particular, over time, with people posting the truth about Cruz’s statements on the Gang of Eight and TPP, the natural born citizen issue, etc. Throughout the campaign season, I think people have learned from one another and have proceeded to get the word out. I (and many others) have linked to stories on the Treehouse, and then others learn and spread the word. Not to be overly dramatic, but I have actually felt engaged in the battle for the truth, for Trump’s candidacy, and for America. So I would hate to see the influence conservatives are having, stifled.

      Cruzbots aren’t changing their minds, but others are learning and telling others — perhaps family members, friends, and coworkers. I have wondered if the Treehouse (or maybe some kind of a sister site) could supplant the sites that are owned and controlled just like political candidates. I know some people are furious with Joseph Farrah of WND for endorsing Cruz and have vowed never to go back there. Some say they are leaving Breitbart, too.

          I’m fairly new here, posting at least, although I’ve lurked for many months.

          It is extraordinarily important that we don’t do what some are advocating. That being, to abandon BB and other sites like WND. We simply cannot leave the battlefield.

          I’ve posted many, many links there, and other places, from CTH, and been thanked for it, (same name and avatar – no confusion here intended). The comments are winning the battle, folks! There is no converting the seemingly paid Cruzbot trolls, but at BB for example, Goldberg and others are roundly hammered for their Swiss cheese logic anti-Trump screeds. On balance, Trump supporters vastly outnumber “other,” and trolls are not having an easy time of it. That’s as it should be.

          NewsMax, DougRoss@Journal, CNSNews, AmericanThinker, AmericanSpectator, all of them are being refuted by logical, non-nasty Treehouse-type folks, and it is working. Don’t give up! Much can happen in 7 months. If you’re a believer (and I am) you know that there is far more to this than politics, so we’re not laboring in vain! Or by ourselves. Yesterday 3/11 was an important day, a sea change. Watch, and rejoice.

    It’s almost as if they are sitting in a room together, looking over each others shoulders.

    They also upvote each others posts to falsely show the support from the general population on the thread. Yeah, right.

      Yeah. Thanks to Sundance for shedding the light on In May 2012 came out with the story that Obama’s official bio stated that he was “born in Kenya.” His bio stated “born in Kenya” for 17 years and he didn’t change it to Hawaii until a couple months after he decided to run for the presidency.

      This was a year after Obama put his fraudulent birth certificate up on the Whitehouse website. I knew something was fishy at Breitbart when they started giving the usurper a free pass.. As Ann Barnhardt said in her blog post, “The Breitbart group AND the HotAir fools (Ed Morrisey and Allahpundit), ONCE AGAIN are pissing all over people who dare point out that Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of the Presidency is seriously, seriously in question. They are doing this in the same breath WHILE REPORTING THIS VERY STORY, which proves beyond any doubt whatsoever that Obama is a liar and con-artist. WHY? Why do these “conservatives” refuse to engage reality on this point? These folks have made a BOATLOAD of money off of the Obama usurpation. Bottom line: Obama is good for business if you are a “conservative” blogger looking to advance your career and either move into a high-paying gig in the “mainstream media” OR attempting to establish a new-model business like Glenn Beck. It was reported (I think in Forbes) that Beck made a cool $80 million last year. Don’t think for a second that Morrisey, Allahpundit and the Breitbart Team aren’t salivating at the thought of seven-to-eight figure annual hauls. I actually believe that most of these folks are rooting for Obama to “win”, for whatever that means in a lawless electoral environment, in November because Obama is very, very good for their businesses.”

Saw this somewhere the other day, and suits him: “Taqiyya Ted”

    The anti Trump crowd grows more desperate by the day, for sure. I am looking for a longer list of the websites whose ‘hidden’ ownership is driving ideological content, i.e., greatly against Trump. I know National Review is one, but the vitriol at BB is nothing like NR……..If anyone knows of more, please post here somewhere. Of course, add Red State/Erickson, and have dropped conservative talk radio as well…………as least what I can get around here.
