If the past year has confirmed anything it is that the mainstream media is thoroughly dishonest...
2021 has made it clear
that the mainstream media is a propaganda arm of political and
corporate elitists, from big government to big pharma.
The public has been lied
to so consistently that sometimes we ignore legitimate journalism
when it pops up because it's safer to assume the media is
disingenuous at all times.
The message is that,
Leftist media is crumbling, with online propaganda peddlers and click-bait prostitutes like Buzzfeed and Vox imploding.
The lack of profits is
obvious and the layoffs have been aggressive.
Buzzfeed's scheme was to go public and sell shares, but this plan failed so completely and the company's stock plunged so hard that the event has exposed all other fledgling tech media to wider scrutiny.
In other words,
Buzzfeed used to claim they were worth $1.5 billion:
Legacy media has also seen its audience numbers plummet over the past ten years, but the last year in particular has been especially unkind to them.
ALL of the major corporate news channels saw their audience ratings decline, with CNN seeing the largest drop overall.
Some might blame the loss of election coverage, but it's not as if there hasn't been enough news to hype in 2021.
With millions of people still working from home and facing intermittent Covid restrictions this year (in blue states), you would think that this would represent a captive audience for the fear machine.
While stats are not as well tracked for independent sources, it is obvious from viewership and subscription numbers that the alternative media is quickly becoming the dominant force in information.
My own audience numbers have jumped at least 30% in the past two years alone and this seems to be the trend across the board for conservative and libertarian media.
Websites like Social Blade, which tracks YouTube channel stats, support the conclusion that,
Why is this happening?
Mainstream media numbers have been in decline for many years and their audience age brackets have been increasing dramatically.
This accelerated after
2016 when the mainstream media mask came off completely and what we
now know as the "Culture War" revealed itself.
Mainstream platforms funded by a steady cash flow from the corporate coffers of,
...used to reign supreme in entertainment publications.
Moderately sized tech media operations clamored to remain in the good graces of these corporations in exchange for favors and special access.
Now, operations with billions of dollars behind them are being thwarted by low cost do-it-yourself 'YouTube' channels,
The bloodletting has been so horrific that social media companies (with a shared agenda) have partnered with the majors to suppress these types of channels, demonetizing them or erasing them from public view with their algorithms.
Alternative channels get so much attention because they offer something people want.
In the political and social sphere there have been numerous success stories, including,
In economic media,
outlets like Zero Hedge continue to bring in millions of readers
that most other mainstream institutions WISH they had.
I have been working and publishing within the alternative media for 16 years and I don't think many who are new to the field realize how much Americans have broken free from the mainstream narrative in that time.
When I got started, to even dream of the audience numbers we now have was considered naive fantasy.
Today I continue to find
great hope in the growth of independent journalism.
They have now lost the respect of the public and their gatekeeping is over.
On that note, lets examine just a few of the reasons why trust in the mainstream has imploded.
Lets look at some of the
biggest lies perpetuated by the MSM in 2021…
The mainstream media has relentlessly parroted the propaganda that the conservative protest at the Capitol Building on Jan 6th was some kind of planned attempt at a national takeover and violent coup resulting in multiple deaths.
The reality was much less
While there was violence and an unarmed protester was shot and killed by police (Ashli Babbitt), the result of the event was nothing close to an insurrection. Protesters walked in, milled around for a little while, some people stole some souvenirs, and then everyone left.
It can barely be considered a "riot."
Compare this to the BLM riots across the country which resulted in multiple actual killings by people directly participating, not to mention billions of dollars in property damage.
The media called these
riots "peaceful protests" while condemning the Jan 6 participants as
And I want to explain something else to leftists because I don't think they get it:
If you were hiding under
your beds over the events of Jan 6th, you really have no
Multiple people die from a freak winter storm hitting Texas and taking down parts of their independent power grid and the first thing the mainstream media does is write hatchet stories about how this,
These people are obsessed
with centralization to the point that they lose their minds if you
generate your own electricity.
The truth is that failing wind turbines were indeed the primary source of the power grid decline.
Leading up to the winter storm in February, wind turbines were generating around 28% (nearly one third) of Texas power while natural gas was providing 43%.
By the end of the freeze wind power had dropped to 6% while natural gas took up the slack and increased to 65% of the grid. In other words, Krugman either lied, or he was oblivious to the actual stats.
While there were failures in some natural gas plants, the majority of the fault was in federally funded wind power. During the grid down crisis, natural gas lost 7% of its overall output while the federally funded wind turbines lost 47% output.
THIS IS A FACT...
Millions of people had just transplanted to Texas in a matter of months to escape blue state policies such as high taxes and oppressive Covid mandates.
And here is where we find what is likely the core motive behind the media's lies about Texas:
The Covid 'pandemic' has luckily resulted in,
However, there have been
fatalities that did not need to happen and Fauci is partly to blame.
If this was a murder investigation it would be like a detective walking in a room to find a dead body and a neighbor standing over it with a bloody knife, and then buying the suspect ice cream and sending him on his merry way.
If you didn't witness the actual stabbing,
Maybe because government agencies like the NIAD and NIH under the direction of Anthony Fauci were involved in funding clandestine "Gain of Function" research of corona viruses at that very lab in Wuhan.
Fauci denied any involvement in gain of function research, which is predominantly used for the weaponization of a virus or other microorganisms.
The media violently defended him and accused anyone critical of Fauci of being crackpot conspiracy theorists.
Well, it turns out he was lying again...
The release of over 900
documents related to coronavirus research funded by Fauci and the US
government in Wuhan proves the media either blindly defended Fauci
without looking at the evidence, or that they share the same agenda.
But not long ago the narrative was that anyone and everyone falling ill from the virus was unvaccinated.
The media and the government still push the notion that unvaccinated people are filling up hospitals and ICU beds, but there is ZERO evidence to support these claims.
Meanwhile, the most vaccinated countries on the planet are also dealing with some of the highest infection rates on the planet and continuing deaths.
If the vaccines actually work, then how is this possible?
One has to ask,
Now, they can't hide it anymore.
With price inflation
hitting 40 year highs (according to official numbers), the
pocketbook of the average American is taking a massive hit, and it's
only going to get worse from here on.
I won't get into my
theories on why this is the case (I already wrote extensively on
this issue in my last article), I'll only say that an unprepared
populace is an easy to control populace when an economic crash
Rather, it is the
injection of leftist woke ideology and cultism into everything from
films to TV series to commercials.
There is hope, however, and it is found in the mantra of "Get Woke Go Broke!" Audiences are voting with their wallets and the consensus is that they do not want woke politics poisoning their entertainment.
For the past couple years leftists in the media have said that the crash in theater profits has been caused by public fear over Covid.
This excuse was recently destroyed by the latest Spiderman film, which has no woke politics and had audiences coming to theaters by the millions.
The film made over $1
billion in 5 days breaking previous records.
No one wants it, no one
likes it. The media has no other means of denying it any longer.
At least, for now, the alternative media has stepped up to fill the void and bring facts where there was once only deception.
In order to get rid of the truth, they will have to get rid of us.
Otherwise, the free
market has spoken...
