Liberal Media Will Aim for Trump

By    |   Wednesday, 18 May 2016 03:45 PM EDT

Now it begins. This onslaught has been decades in the making. It was not organized to hurt Trump but it is reaching its full organic and systematic power in opposing him.

By the end of the process, Trump supporters will feel shell shocked and numb. They will not only be bitter about the biased political coverage which is about to reach breathtaking levels, they will never view the television networks and the large corporations who own them the same again.

Keep in mind a couple of things. All of the hundreds of television networks are owned by principally five companies. There are demographic and socio-cultural reasons why they and their online and print media counterparts are politically liberal.

Academic surveys and polls of journalists have documented this bias since the question was first raised.

The proof of such bias is being scrubbed from the Internet as we speak. Google yourself and you will now see — for the first time — leftists sites featuring bogus data to suggest that the media actually tilts right.

Have such leftist sites actually earned a SERP (search engine results page) or were they arbitrarily placed there by the owners of the search engines? It is almost surely the latter because — as of now — their equivalent social media pages cannot command the proportionate numbers of "likes" to the real studies.

Since this story has to begin somewhere we will start it in 1964 when major corporations knew that Republican presidential nominee, Barry Goldwater, was going to be defeated. A Democrat would be elected president and he would control both Houses of Congress, and every social program they envisioned would be passed.

Even the most Republican of corporate leaders had to fall into line and that meant finding ways to benefit from  the "War on Poverty" and any other well meaning social program.

From that small beginning major corporations became allies of a multitude of special interests groups all with their own separate demands for new laws and regulations. Now, understand, the special interests were well intentioned. They helped the poor, the victimized, they redressed past wrongs; they were also expensive and had the effect of crowding out small business competition.

For big companies, this was the fast track to a monopoly. Make it too expensive for anyone to start their own business. This worked so well that the process accelerated.

Corporations made donations and soon owned or controlled many of the special interests. For example, alcohol companies donated money to drunk driving charities and were soon sitting on their boards of directors.

It gets worse. During times of economic downturn, big companies had their lobbying firms demand from Congress  temporary exemptions from the regulations in order “to create jobs.” Such decisions were inserted into job stimulus bills that nobody even read.

Now, be patient, let’s jump to a parallel track, hang on, we’re getting there.

At the end of the Cold War, thousands of spies were out of work. Major corporations all over the world snatched them up for pennies on the dollar. There were things they could do and technology that dazzled the civilian world.

Much of their work would have been illegal in the U.S. so it was perfected elsewhere, but as it became the modus operandi for international companies and the public relations firms they hired, it soon back-washed home.

Within time, some of these overseas public relations firms were tapped to help run political campaigns. Again, much of it happened overseas, beyond the restraint of the U.S. Constitution.

In most countries of the world journalists could be purchased, stories could be fabricated, and the former spies could create flawless disinformation.

After 9-11 all restraints were off. The curtain between the American government and the world's global corporate giants came down. The American government needed information. The U.S. Constitution was in the toilet.

The Iraq war generated billions of dollars for private companies and was funded off the books by the Federal Reserve.

America descended into the second worse depression in world history. George W. Bush, a Republican president, nationalized the American banks.

It was called socialism anywhere else in the world, but we insisted that Bush was a "conservative." There was a massive transfer of wealth as the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. It has continued nonstop through the Obama years.

Fast-forward to 2016. Here is Donald Trump, an outsider like Andrew Jackson, a businessman who makes public claims about being fair in business and trade, who calls out America for its bad deals, and calls our decision making “stupid.”

It has taken the nation’s largest companies years to get to this place that he calls "stupid."

They have a candidate in Hillary Clinton who will assure “stability.”

So this summer, get ready, they will crucify Donald Trump. But will he rise again?

(Note: As an example of liberal bias, in 2008, the Democratic Party received donations of $1,020,816, given by 1,160 employees of the three major broadcast television networks (NBC, CBS, ABC). Meanwhile, the Republican Party received $142,863 via 193 donations.)
