World Class Journalist Spills the Beans, Admits Mainstream Media is Completely Fake.

  • Recently, Udo Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job.
  • We all enabled Donald Trump: Our deeply unserious media and reality-TV culture made this horror inevitable.

Arjun Walia, Prepare for Change / Global Research

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Fake%20Media.jpg March 27, 2016 | He recently made an appearance on RT news to share these facts.

I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.

But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.

Udo Ulfkotte is a German journalist. He was formerly an editor for the German main daily newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Ulfkotte studied jurisprudence and politics at Freiburg and London. 

Arjun Walia writes ebooks based on broadcasting live from home computer.

We all enabled Donald Trump: Our deeply unserious media and reality-TV culture made this horror inevitable, Neal Gabler, Salon

  • Trump isn't the destruction of the GOP. He is its fulfillment. We'd all know this if the press would do its job. 
  • Trump could only make a mockery of our politics because the media already had.
  • The media is NOT doing its job!

NYPD's Arrests of Citizen Journalists Should Spark Outrage

  • If freedom of the press means anything, it should protect the growing number of people who use media to hold powerful institutions accountable. If it doesn’t protect copwatching, then it’s totally useless.

March 23, 2016 | Last week, New York City police officers arrested four well-known activists for filming them. Copwatchers—people who regularly film and document police activity—have often been targeted by cops who don’t want to be recorded, despite reminders that recording police interactions is legal in the city. While legal protections for filming police are still unclear in some parts of the country, the invaluable role that copwatchers play as journalists—acting as the eyes, ears and media of the streets—deserves to be recognized.

Much was made in the media about the 2014 arrests of the Huffington Post‘s Ryan Reilly and the Washington Post‘s Wesley Lowery by local police in Ferguson, Missouri, after the police killing of Michael Brown. HuffPo released a statement condemning Reilly’s arrest. The Society of Professional Journalists, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) also objected. Reilly, a reporter at media powerhouse Huffington Post (where I occasionally blog), and Lowery, who has produced some top-notch copaganda since then (FAIR Blog, 2/12/16), were roughed up and arrested, apparently for nothing.

ESPN’s Van Gundy lashes out at sports media ‘quid pro quo’, Danny Funt, CJR

  • “I don’t believe readers understand how beholden most of these writers are to their sources,” Van Gundy tells CJR in an interview. “They’re actually the mouthpieces for these people. It’s a quid pro quo.” That bartering of favorable coverage for scoops corrupts sports reporting well beyond this instance, Van Gundy claims, now more than ever.

January 26, 2016 | With seven minutes remaining in the second quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, ESPN color commentator Jeff Van Gundy began his broadside attack on investigative basketball journalists. LeBron James of the Cavaliers scored a layup, with 5:27 left on the clock, when Van Gundy finished. For this uninterrupted 90 seconds of a primetime matchup, one of ESPN’s top broadcasters offered a critique of anonymously sourced reporting and the state of sports media to more than 3.5 million viewers. 

His message would warm the heart of New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan, an outspoken critic of unnamed sources, and make other journalists’ blood boil. At issue is a fundamental question in sports reporting: Does covering discord inside the locker room require that sources be unidentified?

Danny Funt is a CJR Delacorte Fellow.

Monday, Mar 14, 2016 | It is more than a little ironic that the Republican Establishment and the mainstream media are both now in full panic mode over the possibility of Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination. You would think that the Republican Party, which has been, let’s face it, hate-spewing, poor-bashing, government-stopping and corporation-loving for decades, ought to be the leading culprit for having paved the way for Trump’s success. As for the media, Marco Rubio, who claims to be exactly where he wants to be after losing 14 primaries and caucuses and winning only one, holds them responsible, which, from a candidate who has demonstrated little support outside the media, is a bit disingenuous. Still, even Rubio is occasionally right. The media did have a lot to do with enabling the rise of Donald Trump. Just not how Rubio or most people think.

To enable Trump, what the media did is fulfill what almost seemed to be a longtime mission: to create the first “pseudo-campaign” with the first “pseudo-candidate.” And now they are having buyer’s remorse.

Why You Need to Care About What's Happening to Melissa Harris-Perry

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Media%20%26%20Technology%20Banner.jpg

  • Today (2/26/16) it was revealed that Melissa Harris-Perry is removing herself from the air; a result of MSNBC jerking her schedule and her show around and providing her no reason for these decisions.
  • This is more than just “not cool.” It should be acknowledged and regarded as what it is. An insult to her and her work. Which, by proxy, is an insult to us.

Damon Young, Very Smart Brothas

http://verysmartbrothas.com/images/2016/02/mhp-479x430.jpg 2/26/16 | The cover photo from my Facebook profile is a screenshot of my appearance on Melissa Harris-Perry last August. I don’t get anxious much when meeting new people; at least not anymore. But I was anxious then. Partially because it was my first time on national television, and I hoped my dad and my aunts in Cincinnati would approve of my suit, posture, and hand placement. But mainly because of Melissa Harris-Perry’s status as an intellectual powerhouseTa-Nehisi Coates once called her “America’s foremost public intellectual” (a bold claim I happen to agree with). 

Basically, I didn’t want to get up there and look stupid. Also, although I was very familiar with her work and her writing and her show, I had no idea how she’d be in person. I didn’t know if I’d be meeting Miranda Priestly. (Adding another layer to this anxiety lasagna is how the show is structured. You don’t meet or even see her until 60 seconds before your segment will air.)
