The True Puppetmaster of the Political World is The Media
Rob McConnell's Op-Ed - "We the People" has been sadly changed to "We the Media."
I am surprised and appalled with all the hoopla concerning the recently released audio of Donald Trump that is being heralded by democrats and narrow minded members of the mainstream (especially CNN and their cast of a narrow minded anchors and so-called "correspondents")
First of all, I do not agree with the comments that Donald Trump said nor have I ever thought in such a manner, but that is me. I am sure that there are millions of men, who like myself, treat women with respect and appreciate what they do and how the right woman can enrich the life of any man. However, there are millions of men who have said and thought was Donald Trump said.
But let's get to the meat and the potatoes of the audio.
Question: At the time of the conversation that was released, did Donald Trump know that the conversation he was having with the host being recorded or did he believe that this was simply "jock talk?"
Question: Was this a setup by the producers of the show that Donald Trump was part of that day? I mean,, why would they be recording audio without Donald having a camera in front of him?
Question: If Donald Trump was not aware that his conversation was recorded, what are the legalities concerning the recording and the consequences of the members of the media who were part of this recording?
Question: If this recording was acquired without the permission of Donald Trump, does it make the recording illegal, and if so, should there be prosecution against those directly responsible for the recording and those who released the audio to the media?
How come the so called, "mainstream media" are not asking these, to me, very important questions?
How come Bill Clinton is getting a pass on how he treated women?
Don't forget that John and Bobby Kennedy were not the wholesome family men that they were thought to be. What about Ted Kennedy, or is the fact that the family name of Kennedy gives them a "political/media/
Get to the facts - get to the truth.
For the first time, Donald Trump apologized, taking responsibility for what he said on that tape. When Clinton apologizes, all is forgiven, but when Donald Trump apologized for what he said, it wasn't good enough and the blood sucking members of the media, especially CNN with Don Lemon leading the pack of hungry wolves with his panel of media collaborators and one loudmouth dingbat (yes, you know who I mean, "Anna" the former head cheerleader on CNN for Jeb Bush) who went after Trump with a vengeance (I would imagine that is because her "friend" Jeb Bush did not win the Republican Presidential Candidacy.
Have you noticed that the thousands of emails that were released yesterday showing more of the corruption in the actions of Hillary Clinton are not getting the same attention that Trump is?
Isn't it funny how the audio of Donald Trump was released just in time to save yet another Clinton disaster?
Diversion - the same tactics a magician uses to perform his tricks. Look at what his right hand is doing so you do not notice what his left is doing.
Don't forget, there are always three sides to the story: His side, her side and the truth.
It is apparent, that the media is driven by the advertising dollars that their tabloid style of reporting and questionable methods of getting and breaking their news gets from the public.
It seems that little has changed since the days of the gladiators and the public lust, thirst and desire for blood except that you need not go to the coliseum to watch the gladiators, you just need to turn on your iPad, iPhone, computer or TV no matter where you are.
The same can be said for sports and the thrill that viewers get from watching the fights, the hard contact, the team vs team animosity...oh and how the fans love their adrenaline rushes! It is very sad that so many people think that in-order to have a life, they must live their existence through the thoughts, words and actions of sporting figures and other celebrities in order to feel whole. Look at the amount of money that these modern day gladiators are getting paid to lure you, the consumer, watching their events, just so you can have your little life's moment and fantasy, while psychologically getting you to buy the advertisers product.
It is a vicious circle. You are not a spectator, you are a pawn in the game of advertising.
You the consumer are making Gods out of mere mortals by living your life through their battles, their tournaments, their wins, and their losses.
After all, at the end of the day, how does the winning of one team over another effect the real world? It doesn't, but it certainly effects the sales of the advertised products that are seen at the event venues and on the media telecasts of the events.
So, the next time you read those famous words that were penned on one of the most significant documents ever, "We the People," thanks to consumers, the media, modern technology, the consumers thirst for blood, both in the political and sporting arenas, those words have been changed right under your very noses to "We the Media."
No matter who wins the November Presidential Election, the real winner will sadly be the real puppet masters, the media.
Sad, so sad.
