If you watched a Trump speech in the past couple of months you would have noticed something strange. I’m sure you noticed a lot of strange things, but one detail that should have been very alarming was his obsession with the media and how corrupt it is.
Launching missiles against the media is nothing new in a presidential campaign. In fact, history will show that there is usually one presidential candidate that complains about the media more than the other one. Take a guess which of these candidates historically loses that election?
However, Trump is much more critical of the media than past presidential candidates. This could be because Trump’s ultimate motives are different from past presidential candidates. Trump could be disparaging the media so ferociously, because he intends to replace this “untrustworthy media” with Trump TV.
Trump’s media attacks go well beyond the usual criticism of a certain reporter. Trump is trying to discredit the entire media. He repeats to his base how untrustworthy the media is and how they must reject the media.
The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press. Let’s be clear on one thing. The corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They’re a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda, and the agenda is not for you. It’s for themselves.
Please keep in mind, that Trump constantly repeats how untrustworthy the media is, but he has not told us which stories are untrue. Is the entire media crooked just because they report on the scandalous stories of Donald Trump?
Even the most ardent and loyal Trumpkin can recognize the absurdity of such a statement. Every newspaper published a story about Donald Trump sexually assaulting women. Trump is trying to convince his supporters that all of these accusations are false. All of these accusations are but a branch on this media conspiracy tree. The “corporate media” designed this conspiracy.
Are there really people who believe that?
Yes. Their names are John and Jane Trumpkin. They lived under a rock until Trump emerged as the Republican messiah. In a few weeks, when Trump loses, they will retreat to their dark and mossy home. If all goes as planned, John and Jane Trumpkin will be the first subscribers to Trump TV.
You don’t have to be the sharpest tool in the shed to recognize that Trump is really not in it to win it. If he cared one iota about winning the presidency he would have done so many things differently. He is not a stupid guy. If he really wanted to be president, among trillions of other senseless comments, he would not have said that Hispanics kill people and that no man would rape an unattractive woman.
Who is Trump speaking to? Does Trump really expect me and you to abandon CNN or the New York Times or USA Today or Fox News? How does he expect us to get our news then?
Trump only cares about John and Jane Trumpkin. Without these supporters he would have never gotten where he is today. More importantly, without these supporters, he would never get to where ultimately envisions himself and his Trump TV.
After Trump enlightened his supporters about the existence of this massive conspiracy, he will lead them to the promised land. If we do not follow Donald Trump into the dark abyss, we and our families will certainly suffer a catastrophic fate.
This election will determine whether we’re a democracy or, in fact, controlled by a handful of special global interests, rigging the system, and our system is rigged. This is reality. You know it, they know it, and pretty much the whole world knows it. The establishment and their media neighbors wield control over this nation through means that are very well-known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, rapist, xenophobe, and morally deformed. They will attack you. They will slander you. They will seek to destroy your career and your family.
Say what you want about Trump, but if after the elections, he unveils a media corporation, we have to applaud him. If Trump came out with a paid television station two years ago, no one would subscribe. But after this election, Trump has established a strong fan base.
How to Create your Own Political Television Station
1 – Make a name for yourself.
2 – Run for office as a Republican.
3 – Target uneducated voters with jokes about little hands.
4 – Create a loyalty with these uneducated voters.
5 – Start blaming the media for an inevitable loss.
6 – Also blame members of the Republican party.
7 – Remind these uneducated voters that you are the only one on their side.
8 – Place people on your political cabinet that are media experts not necessarily political experts. Sean Bannon of Breitbart.com and Roger Ailes of Fox news are two GREAT examples.
Trump is lousy with politics. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. He is very sharp with entertainment though. Especially now, after that pitiful year and a half campaign, I don’t think anyone is more capable of running an ultra right-wing news network than The Donald.
Fox News could kiss a large amount of it’s viewers good-bye.
It only took Fox News a few years to emerge as the number one cable television network. Fox came onto the scene in 1996. Back then, cable news was a goldmine. Not only would they net subscriber fees but ALSO advertising fees.
The internet has changed things. The internet has devoured television ratings. Once upon a time, the cable television was protected by just a few companies like Disney and Comcast, but now the floodgates are open, and anyone could get a piece of the pie.
And so three brave heroes emerge…
A feisty reality television star, the founder of the leading right-wing website, and the founder of Fox News.
The only thing that could hamper this pristine plan, is if John and Jane Trumpkin recognize that they’ve been played like little puppets. Their demented adoration of Donald Trump handed the election to Hillary Clinton, a candidate that was very easy to beat. Donald Trump never wanted to be president, he basically threw the election so that John and Jane Doe would spend ten dollars a month on his new media station.
