Clip from Jimmy Dore Show about the Media Coverage of ‘RussiaGate’

December 14, 2018 4 comments

I can be a little lazy about writing up posts which are not in my core areas of interest. On such occasions, it helps if somebody else writes a similar post or produces a video making a largely similar point. As some of you might remember, I have previously linked to clips from ‘The Jimmy Dore Show’. Here is one of the latest, in which he shows how corporate media talking heads have been predicting the ‘Fall of Trump’ and the ‘End of his Presidency’ for almost two years now. What makes this one especially hilarious is that even the phrasing and wording of their talking points have not changed much over past two years ago. And he is not the only one who had noticed it. Yesterday, I saw a tweet by Michael Tracey in which he made a similar observation.

FYI, Jimmy Dore is no fan of Trump and nor is Michael Tracey. Then again, they don’t have warm feelings for the establishment wing of Democratic Party either. Interestingly, both were far less certain about HRC’s chances of winning the 2016 presidential election. As I have also noted in a previous post, the establishment democrat obsession with RussiaGate fairly tales comes down to their unwillingness to accept that their anointed candidate in 2016 was rather unpopular and their neoliberal political platform has lost public support over past two decades. The same can be said about the larger political establishment, media and ‘deep state’ who see the election of that orange buffoon as a temporary aberration rather than one symptom of a much larger problem.

Anyway, have a look at the clip and marvel at the comically petulant behavior of our media ‘elite’. Don’t forget that each one of these talking heads make multiple millions per year.
