Can The Accredited Media Save America From Trump?

As it becomes increasingly apparent that Russian interference was pivotal in Donald Trump’s election, many are worried that Trump may be secretly subverting America in order to pave the way for Russian aggression. As fears of a looming Trump presidency continue to grow, an increasing number of Americans are looking to the accredited media for comfort and guidance.

With Trump’s impending shakeups in the supreme court and various Federal departments, the government that so many Americans have grown to love and depend on, is no longer recognizable. Many fear that Trump’s administration does not have their best interests at heart, and they find solace in the media, which still resembles the old days of responsible governance.

One consoling fact is that the accredited media still has far better relationships with senior government officials, and in many cases better access to US intelligence, than Trump and his administration. Donald Trump was shocked to learn that NBC received an intelligence briefing about Russia’s hacking of the election before he did, without his knowledge or consent.

Trump was also shocked when respected senator Chuck Schumer told Rachel Maddow that intelligence agencies have many ways to retaliate, if he continues to undermine their efforts to uncover Russian involvement in the election.

Time and time again, high ranking government officials have demonstrated greater trust and affinity for the accredited media than president-elect Donald Trump and his administration. Trump is learning an important lesson about just how powerful and well-connected the accredited media is, and that in many ways they are just as, if not more, privy to the inner workings of government than the president himself.

The accredited media is acting as an anchor in a sea of unnerving political change, helping to reassure worried Americans that Trump does not in fact have total control of the country. As accredited journalists, I believe we have a responsibility to rally together with US intelligence agencies and other loyal factions of government, and organize some form of popular resistance to Trump. Martin Luther King recommended civil disobedience in times of adversity, and this would appear to be the perfect time for such an uprising. History will judge us by our willingness to stand up to Trump’s fascist takeover, and if we fail to stop him soon, I’m afraid we may be judged harshly for our passiveness and lack of moral courage. For the sake of the future, we must act now.

The accredited media needs to keep hitting Trump on Russia and his tax returns. Those are the issues that people care about — not issues that Obama already solved, such as jobs, healthcare, and the economy. If the accredited media keeps doing its job, Trump will go down like Glass Joe in a fight against Mike Tyson.

Slightly off topic, but I like the revised format a lot. It’s good that progressives can easily access the information they need more easily.

The answer to your question is that the Accredited Media HAS to save America from Trump. We need to remind the public several times every single day that Putin ordered the hacking of the election so that they actually believe this.

Just wanted to say I’m not a big fan of Martin Luther King, because as far as I’m concerned he’s dead. But I do miss the TRENDING NOW electonic ticker introduced in the previous release. Watching history repeat itself time after time right in front of me, lowered my heart rate to a point where I briefly left my body. I wonder did anyone else feel the same?

To read AT you need to sell your soul, and lose your mind. Haven’t heard of discarding one’s body, but that probably helps too.

Can you please use the word “accredited” more than 10x per story? Thataway, I’ll be more comfortable that my boots are high enough on the stirrup.

Trump has admitted that Russia hacked US elections. He’s turning into an elite progressive. A little stay in a FEMA correctional facility is all it takes, for Trump to admit the truth. We should keep him there, and let Hillary become president.

CNN is truly accredited news. Never lies or discriminates against African Americans, but common sense says let’s dig up the truth.

Walker v. Turner Broadcasting System et al

Yes, this is class action a lawsuit started by Dewayne Walker for all African Americans working at CNN getting passed for promotions and getting paid less than the White Racist Privileged.

Before you flag me as racist, fake news, post truth, neoliberalism, domestic terrorist, albiesm, speciesism, and other colorful labels I would look into it. If not, stay blind my friend.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and yet we’ve heard nothing on the accredited media about this alleged discrimination so it clearly didn’t happen. A purported class action that advocates one legal position against another falls short of the facts let alone the truth, when what counts is perception, sanctimony and self-hatred.

“stay blind” is ableism of the lowest order.

I still trust CNN, but, if true, the allegations would simply illustrate how White Privilege has infected even our most accredited institutions. The media is still a stuffy conservative institution that needs to move forward to eliminate systemic racism. CNN needs to be more progressive.

BLM, I can’t believe for a moment that these spurious allegations have anything to them except for a greedy lawyer trying to earn a juicy settlement. Everything we see on CNN is right on message and in my experience that culture goes right through the organisation. If anything, I would expect employees of colour to be paid more in recognition of the diversity benefits they bring.

If I am wrong on this, CNN should sack all of the white employees, force them to repay the pay differential to their colleagues of color and rename themselves Network News of Color (NCC).

To extend the proverbial olive branch to Trump, the accredited media should support the delay of Trump’s impeachment if he proves that he is no longer a stooge of Russia by his full support of the trending #NukeRussiaNow campaign. Otherwise, Trump is boxed in from adopting any other approach to Russia.
