MSNBC host claims it is the media’s job to control what people think

February 22, 2017

 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.

    Poor Mika and the rest of the fake news readers they are like moths drawn to a flame. Apparently at the latest press conference Trump displayed the uselessness of the media. Here is Mark Dice talking about the press conference and the talking heads reaction.

      Unlike what the Republican administration wants you to believe “Fake news” is not news with which you disagree.

      They (the reporters) believe whole ‘heartedly’ they’re “right” … ah, I mean “correct”! Mental illness doesn’t tell the person they’re not in their ‘right mind’. Even Scripture refers to it, the gooney guy who lived in the tombs, he was in his right mind after Truth cured him. But, he probably wanted Truth over the lie, some don’t. Living in ‘what’s left’ seems to be the prerequisite of journalist/reporters!

        When George on Seinfeld was asked how to beat a lie detector test he said “it is not a lie if you believe it.” And I think that is exactly what is going on here, these people can no longer tell a lie from the truth.

    Is Scarborough still tapping that progressive trim? While I dispose the chip off her commie father’s block I love her “deer caught in the headlights look” as surely does Joe the lapper….😍

    Looks like Freudian slip to me. Of course, this is true of all media both conservative and liberal.
