“When red-headed people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn.” –Mark Twain
I knew these fools were liars! As soon as I was about a second year in law school I had my lid blown off because I realized that this world was a lot more phony than I could have ever imagined. Just picture lil me, dutifully working my butt off during law school in an industry that isn’t about hard work (God I hate the word industry).
It is completely about connections and what you can bring your employer based on who you know. 70% of the people who graduate don’t know crap about the law except how to make friends in great places. Another 65% of the people who pass the bar still don’t know a damn thing except how to memorize statements and apply them to situation.
Creative and independent thinking in law school exited stage left a long time ago.
Now what does this have to do with the fall of journalism and the new Project Veritas video? Because law is journalism is Hollywood is Washington is Wall Street. They are all cesspools of parasitic friends and sycophant thinkers.
This new video proves how carefully manufactured the news is. And how comfortable big news agencies are with partnering with tech giants to lie to the American people.
And they called it the Russian collusion. How cute.
Fake news is real, and it’s everywhere!
From Gateway Pundit:
Wednesday morning, O’Keefe dropped part two–exploiting and manipulating the news. (transcribed via Veritas)
Project Veritas has released its second New York Times video, again featuring Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich. This time, the video gatekeeper describes how he can influence the news by manipulating social media and employing the help of his friends in Silicon Valley.
“As an editor, I’m a gatekeeper so I can choose what goes out and what doesn’t go out. And let’s say we wrote something about Facebook negatively… We actually just did a video about Facebook negatively, and I chose to put it in a spot that I knew wouldn’t do well.”
Dudich admits he has friends in Silicon Valley who help his videos trend. He buried the Facebook story because of his personal biases, and to protect his friends in Silicon Valley, which is in conflict with the New York Times mission.
When asked if it’s good for business to have Silicon Valley connections, Dudich replied, “Yeah. Very good. Very, very good.”
Dudich goes on to explain why he doesn’t want anyone at The Times to know about his connections:
“Let’s say something ends up on the YouTube front page, New York Times freaks out about it, but they don’t know it’s just because my friends curate the front page. So, it’s like, a little bit of mystery you need in any type of job to make it look like what you do is harder than what it is.”
There you have it folks. Anybody who still has any faith in our media are clinging to a delusion that allows them to escape from our craptastic reality. We have an institution problem in our society. It’s almost like everything has been saying is true.
