Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 07, 2017

Kayleigh McEnany, who has been plying her trade as a pro-Trump pundit on CNN for a while, jumped ship to the Trump Team over the weekend. And Sunday, she debuted a Trump TV segment that she labeled the "real news."

It is real spin, at best. And it feels a lot like real propaganda -- or state TV.

In her first 90-second segment, McEnany makes a number of questionable claims, most notably about the credit President Trump deserves for continued strong economic growth.

Below, I've transcribed the whole segment, with some reality checks interjected.

Trump TV has been a long-time project to bring State TV to American.... another of Trump's efforts to immolate Putin.

btw... just for the funny of it....

Hey, Mr. Tangerine Man
What's that on your head?
Is it alive or is it dead?
Do you keep it on in bed?
How often is it fed?
We're dying for a peek
To see what's under it

Hey Mr. Tangerine Man
Waving to your fans
It's all about those little hands
Your nonexistent master plan

Dear Leader Cheeto Don Un approves of the propaganda.

Do not forever with thy vailèd lids
Seek for thy noble father in the dust.
Thou know'st 'tis common. All that lives must die,
Passing through nature to eternity.

Propaganda? Sort of like the pot calling the Kettle black.

#7 | Posted by rstybeach11 What is strange to me is the Left bemoans the power of corporations, yet accept the news put out by five or six corporations as truth. The New York Times is owned mostly by a Mexican. Fox is owed in part by the Saudis. NBC was owned by GE. Sony, a Japanese company owns Most of ABC news. If you want to understand the narrative, follow the money. The golden rule is real, "He who has the gold, makes the rules". People usually do not spend money to go against their own interest.

So journalistic integrity is completely amiss in U.S. corporate media?

I can't bring myself to agree with that outright. Far too much nuance, especially at the local level. And I would know, I dated an assignment editor at local ABC News outlet for 8 years. She was very candid with the politics; especially at the national level. There are good journalists out there and many of them work for corporate outlets that do not suppress, censor, or spin their stories. She's the main reason why I was convinced away from the "liberal media" hyperbole.

This sounds a lot like Obama's "West Wing Week" that the MSM fawned all over.
