They have been the gatekeepers of information for over a century.
They have been the sole proprietors of who gets to be defined as legitimate, who the experts are, and who should be discredited...sometimes even destroying whole careers and lives in the process. They are for all intents and purposes .....evil incarnate.
And we know it.
And we aren't going to take it anymore.
Andrew Breitbart was the beginning of the end for them though they didn't know it.
I have a feeling they all breathed a sigh of relief after his death. What they didn't know and what President Trump has capitalized on is leading by example through Righteous Indignation. Breitbart may be gone but he has left behind an Army of Breitbarts which is much more potent than just one man.
Mike Cernovich is an example of this. He's not the only one but he's one of the most influential ones.
Sunday night 60 minutes did a segment on fake news. Let's skip over the irony of that fact and move on to the ignorance, laziness, and all out arrogance of the left to still believe they have any power to define what is and isn't fake news when wars have been started over their reporting of fake news.
Mike Cernovich wrote about the interview on his website Danger and Play
Scott Pelley kept trying to trap me. I reminded him of some huge stories the media refused to cover.
Scott Pelley: Question becomes, what, what’s your standard for objective truth? Maybe you’ve talked to an anesthesiologist who’s never met Hilary Clinton, who’s decided she has Parkinson’s Disease, which there’s no sign of, and then-
Mike Cernovich: Are you a doctor?
Scott Pelley: I am not a doctor, but uh, the … Secretary Clinton does not seem to have Parkinson’s Disease. You seem to be the only person reporting that. It would be a pretty big story if it was true, and no one’s been able to verify it. So what’s your standard of proof? It doesn’t seem very high.
Mike Cernovich: I remember when John Edwards had fathered a wo- a child out of wedlock with a woman he was cheating on while his wife had cancer, the media wouldn’t cover it.
Scott Pelley: The question’s not about John Edwards. The question’s not about John Edwards, it’s about you, what’s your standard of proof?
Mike Cernovich: We’re having a philosophical conversation about the nature of truth, and the nature of truth is that John Edwards did not have a lovechild, that is fake news. Well actually it’s true, that happened. Right? So there are many stories that are under reported.
Scott Pelley: I’m talking about your website.
Scott Pelley didn't want to talk about the 'MSM' 's reporting of fake news. His goal was to define Cernovich as fake news.
I'm starting to believe these people really believe their own hype. They really do think they are better, smarter, and more qualified to report the news.
Well, as long as they are underestimating their enemy, they will continue to lose.
Which can only be good for truth.
The days of the main stream media being main stream are coming to an end.....faster please!
Mike's video covering himself watching himself on 60 Minutes was better than the actual 60 Minutes clip.
Well done Mike Cernovich!
