MSNBC host claims it is the media’s job to control what people think
Here at America’s Watchtower we have often talked about how the mainstream media no longer reports the news but instead tries to create the news to push an agenda. Polls are used in the same way as well. But it is not very often the mainstream media actually admits what it is up to. Today that changed when MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, most likely fueled by her anti-Trump bias, actually admitted it was the media’s job to control what people think. Here is the clip:
Here is the transcript:
“Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
There will be people who claim she misspoke and that what she really meant was that it was the media’s job to report the news so that people will be able to think about it in order to form their own opinions based on the facts as presented to us, but that is clearly not what she said. She clearly used the word “control.”
She probably did misspeak in the sense that in the moment she slipped up and actually told the American people the truth about what media insiders believe their job is. They say a gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth and I think the same can be said about the mainstream media.
