In the News (The Washington Post): “The White House blocked a number of news organizations from attending an informal briefing Friday, a rare and surprising move that came amid President Trump’s escalating war against the media.
“White House press secretary Sean Spicer banned reporters from CNN, The New York Times, Politico, The Los Angeles Times and BuzzFeed from attending a ‘gaggle,’ a non-televised briefing, but gave access to a number of other reporters, including those representing conservative outlets. …
“The unusual ban came the same day that Trump, appearing at an annual gathering of conservatives, launched another round of complaints about the news media. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump called reporters ‘dishonest’ and ‘fake’ and denounced the use of anonymous sources in reports about his administration. …
“‘It’s not acceptable,’ CNN anchor Jake Tapper said on his afternoon program. ‘In fact, it’s petulant … This White House doesn’t seem to value a free press. There’s a word for this. The word is “un-American.” ’”
Comment: According to the White House, a ban on CNN has been declared. President Trump does not intend to give any interviews to this network. On his Twitter page, he called the network a terrible network that publishes fake news. He also refers to The New York Times and The Washington Post in the same manner, saying that he believes they cover his actions unfairly.
My Comment: Of course. We all know that this has been going on for many years. These newspapers are biased and cannot claim to be the least bit objective.
All these media channels are owned by Jews and so all these newspapers are extremely liberal and democratic. The newspaper owners have forgotten that unlimited democracy leads to Nazism.
This is what will happen if Trump doesn’t limit them. If he does, they will have to be very grateful to him because it will actually be thanks to him that they will be able to exist in some kind of framework, otherwise they will arrive very soon to Nazism.
Question: Can media channels today be humane?
Answer: Certainly not. We are all bought and are subordinate to certain forms of behavior controlled by the elite, so all the information is written and rewritten in advance; there is nothing new or objective about it. Today there cannot be objective media in our world, not even news about science and sports.
Our world is managed by selfishness, so it is only natural that the immense influence on people, which the media enables, cannot remain outside of human egoism.
You have one ego, I have another ego, and someone else has a third. Each of us has his own newspapers, television channels, and Internet sites, and we are fighting among ourselves or bring to party members or presidents, etc. to power.
This is all very natural. The media takes a very active part in this, but today they are revealing their absolute lack of objectivity. In principle, this was known before, but people still consume the information they publish.
Personally, I refer only unquestionable data, like something happened somewhere. Here too there is a question: whether it happened or not, as a fact, that is, the bare information, if it can be gleaned from somewhere.
But analysts are tied to reality, but only to the intentions of those who pay.
Question: What do you think about our mass media? After all, both you and I comment on the news and answer questions.
Answer: The media is totally dependent and biased. How can the media be objective? What in this world can be objective if the one who produces everything is a person, and his ego dictates to him what to do, whether consciously or subconsciously.
Question: Are you and I the same?
Answer: Of course! But we are aware why we are doing this, and we are trying to act only for the sake of a higher goal—to bring humanity closer to unity and to attain in this unity the upper level of its existence.
This is a huge difference. We are interested in achieving a goal and I seize every opportunity to pass to the masses this idea, this ideology and goal.
