RIP Philo

must be exhausting being a MSM journalist these days

These guys are only allowed to report on one story: Trump is an idiot! Trump is Hitler! Trump is antisemitic! Trump is mentally unwell! Trump is a danger to Democracy!

Every day, 24/7, that's the only story you can report on. For year after year.

You have no freedom to report on any real news. Instead the only thing is trash Trump for your Soros master.

Meanwhile, every day in the real world, Trump Wins Bigly. And everyone knows because they've all turned off CNN and now get their news from 4chan and /r/The_Donald, the only reliable news sources left.

When the public compares reality to the MSM #fakenews, the journalists just come across looking like mentally unbalanced clueless nitwits.

Imagine you're a journalist. How many years could you keep this up without going insane or killing yourself?

I fully expect to see some cracked and broken MSM journalist perpetrating a mass shooting any day now.

In the early days I called it handwringing (often) but if that's all it was, people would be over it by now. They simply do not whinge and carry on for 18 months, or 12, or maybe even 6. No, this is a campaign. It's very sad for society and an indictment on the perpetrators, but it's also fascinating and most edifying.

Oh yes!

It's totally a bore to follow daily but I take a peek at MSM, like watch CNN for 10 minutes every month or so and every time they are just ranting about Trump. Can be any time of the day. No commercials, no other news, just Trump this Trump that, without respite of any kind.

Remember back in the 1980s they had endurance contests to see who could ride a roller coaster the longest, or who could touch a car the longest, and the last man standing won the car? This is like an endurance contest to see how long they can trash Trump without taking a single break. It's a couple years now, nonstop. It's very amusing to check in and see it still going on, but seriously, their brains must have long turned to mush. It's like you wonder about those North Koreans have to say that the President was born on a comet and doesn't go to the bathroom and they repeat that 30 times a day. They must be totally deranged by this point having to do that.

With social media now providing fully up-to-date reporting by people who are also often on the ground where its all happening, the MSM is now totally obsolete.

I gave up 'normal' TV 5 years ago but continued to listen to BBC radio until about 2 years ago when it became obvious it also was too slow and biased.

I now find MSM incredibly painful.

When the MSM interview people, the bias shines through every single fucking question, an obvious example being the Channel 4 Cathy Newman interview with Jordan Peterson.

When I talk to people who only use MSM they simply do not know what is going on in the world other than trivial nonsense.

I really do not give a fuck which royal is pregnant or what Russia is alleged to have been doing.

CNN is ubiquitous. I got a sandwich at Arby's the other day and CNN was on the fucking telescreen, I mean, TV.
