The Continually Dishonest Media – Jake Tapper Takes The Helm…

Apparently the U.S. media has chosen this week to once again reassert itself as the epitome of broadcast propaganda; Pravda must have been giving them a run for the ruses.

One of the examples today comes from the nascent Jake Tapper of CNN who rallied the proverbial troops around a claim that Donald Trump “brought up Vince Foster” while campaigning for President.

After a two minute diatribe on his framework Tapper begins the panel discussion by saying: “how do you respond to Donald Trump bringing up Vince Foster?

Except there’s a problem; you know, the pesky truth,… Donald Trump didn’t bring up Vince Foster, a reporter did.

As outlined in the Washington Post:

[…] When asked in an interview last week about the Foster case, Trump dealt with it as he has with many edgy topics — raising doubts about the official version of events even as he says he does not plan to talk about it on the campaign trail.

He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”

“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said, speaking of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons at the time. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.”

He added, “I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.” (link)

But the truth of origination with a reporter bringing up the issue didn’t stop Jake Tapper from attributing the entire conversation as originating with Donald Trump.

humor-in-nature8Presidential candidate Donald Trump mentioned a debunked conspiracy theory about the death of Vince Foster in an interview with The Washington Post. CNN’s Jake Tapper reports. 

See how that works?

Reporter: What do you think about the mysterious nature surrounding Area 51?

Trump: I don’t know enough about Area 51 to discuss it, but people have theories.

(Moments Later)

Jake Tapper: Donald Trump espouses wild conspiracy theory exists around Area 51.

And this same Jake Tapper wonders why politicians don’t answer the questions from reporters.

Go figure.

    Gary Aldrich’s book ‘Unlimited Access : An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House ” was a serious eye opener from 1998. So much more is known now. These people were and are a piece of work. Once they are gone, the next generation will get some truths that need to be exposed. Chelsea will not be able to stop the flow.

    He also said Foster “suffered from depression” yet there was never any diagnosis from a qualified medical professional. That was what was said only AFTER the alleged suicide (i.e., “the narrative”).

    Going two years (or more) back…
    Accomplished a very deliberate survey of Jake Tapper (with my brother): reading columns, intel analysis of his reporting, commentary, twitter. Read what I could find from his bio. Looked at what “industry and peers were saying about him.

    Tapper is well aware of communist, and now CIA tactics, for propaganda and for GASLIGHTING. His work is “schoolhouse example after example of gas-lighting. Very obvious gas lighting in his written work. I found no “parallel” for level of “industry” praise for Tapper, his work, his “superb questioning”: it was all a set up. I’m sure. It was an internal press corps maneuver to place Tapper in a position of “asking tough questions” when he was ACTUALLY soft balling the WH and blocking for obama. East coast ivy league liberal “cred” did nothing to lower my radar.
    ABC (?) to CNN move was a “play” called by his side in the “info-war”.
    I called him on it via twitter — citing articles and examples. Blocked within the hour. Appeared “over-sensitive” to me. As he should be.
    Malpractice would come to mind if journalism had any standards for truth or any professional qualifications beyond ratings and a “tour working in the WH press corps”

    which hit Moser as he was walking alone in the middle of unlit Rhinehart Road
    about 10:10 p.m

    Police say they have ruled
    out foul play and will file no charges against the driver because he was not
    intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed.

    I’d like to see Trump bring up how the corrupt media covered up the real reasons Bill Clinton was going to be impeached by sliming our culture with the scuzzy Monica Lewinsky.
    I’d like to see him bring up Sonny Bono.

    Just watched Charlie Rose interview tonight with the Wapo reporter Robert Costa discussing the state of Trump’s campaign. (Costa does say HE brought up the Foster matter to Trump BTW). Best part was hearing them lament the fact that Trump is a media genius who counterpunches relentlessly…against his political opponents & THEM. Some pretty long faces amongst the ol’ lsm minions nowadays. They don’t like their information monopoly being destroyed & there is nothing they can do about it. Good times!
