A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey has found that 54% of likely United States voters now say they do not trust the political news they are getting. That’s up from last June’s previous high of 46%. This all comes on the heels of ex-MSNBC pundit exposing the network’s clear “pro-establishment bias.”
Rasmussen reported that according to the outcome of their survey, just 32% of voting Americans trust the political news they are getting, down slightly from surveys since 2016. Another 15% are not sure. (To see the survey’s exact question wording, click here.)
The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on April 18-19, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. But as it turns out, the media is all scripted, and Ed Schultz, who was pushed out of MSNBC for refusing to tow the establishment’s line, came clean to RT, who he now works for.
Schultz recently gave an interview about the ordeal to the National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein. Schultz detailed a particularly disturbing, but unsurprising story about MSNBC’s refusal to cover former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders seriously. According to Schultz, five minutes before he was due to cover Sanders’ announcement that he would run for president, MSNBC’s president Phil Griffin called him up and told him not to report on it.
Schultz said he was told to not cover Sanders because the network was so thoroughly determined to promote Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate that giving primetime exposure to a progressive voice like Sanders would be dangerous to Hillary’s election chances.
“I think the Clintons were connected to [MSNBC chairman] Andy Lack, connected at the hip. I think that they didn’t want anybody in their primetime or anywhere in their lineup supporting Bernie Sanders — I think that they were in the tank for Hillary Clinton and I think it was managed — and 45 days later I was out at MSNBC.” –Ed Schultz
Is it really a surprise that voters are finally waking up to the fact that their entire worldview was scripted with the illusion of choice built right in?
“…there will only be allowed one story. The government-perscribed, official version of reality will be the only one that’s allowed. At all.
More people than ever are starting to realize that we’re not being told the truth about a lot of things that are going on in this world.” –Melissa Dykes, Truthstream Media
And if you have any doubts that the government is controlling the media to push their agenda (which doesn’t favor you in the least) Schultz is not the only former MSNBC host who was outed for refusing to report the script he was given. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks on YouTube, has always been vocal about how he parted ways with the channel.
According to Uygur, shortly before his departure from MSNBC, Griffin called him in for a talk. The problem was not Uygur’s ratings, which were good, but it was his “tone” and the fact that “people in Washington” were not happy about it. In other words, Uygur was coming across as too anti-establishment. He was ruffling too many feathers.
“Outsiders are cool, but we’re not outsiders, we’re insiders,” Griffin told Uygur. “We are the establishment.” Uygur ignored Griffin’s advice and his ratings shot up because people enjoy watching news anchors actually challenge their guests and engage in real journalism. But the top dogs at MSNBC are apparently willing to forgo high ratings to please “people in Washington.”
According to RT, this was further confirmed on air by current MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, who admitted that the Clinton campaign angrily called the network after Brzezinski leveled some mild criticism at Clinton during a previous broadcast. “NBC got a call from the campaign like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air,” Brzezinski said.
The hypocrisy has not gone unnoticed:
Clinton and her media cronies have spent much of the past two years bellowing about “the Russians” and so-called “pro-Trump” Russian media, while at the same time they were calling up American channels — channels which no doubt play a far bigger role in influencing American voters — to chastise anchors whenever their candidate was the subject of some moderate criticism. –RT
We can only hope that over the next few election cycles, more and more Americans will wake up to the fact that the media and the establishment are controlling their every move. Don’t get us wrong, we don’t want a new establishment to replace the one we have; we’d like people instead, to be free from the coercion and enslavement bonds offered by both and any future establishment.
