Why Accredited Media Outlets Report The Same Stories

Many fake news outlets attempt to glean credibility from the fact that they cover a broader range of stories that don’t always mirror each other, like the stories in the accredited media. Fake news journalists claim that the orthogonal nature of their reporting demonstrates that they are carrying out real independent journalism, instead of simply reciting accredited press releases and regurgitating Reuters and Bloomberg news feeds. But the reality of course, is that there is a good reason for the accredited media’s unified reporting of current affairs – they are all equally cognisant and observant of the same, glaring, objective facts.

Think of it this way. If a meteor hit the earth tomorrow, causing untold destruction and sending shock-waves throughout the scientific community, you’d expect everyone to be talking about it, right? Well, Trump not releasing his tax returns, and his curious body language during his meeting with Putin, are the political equivalent of a meteor. Any accredited journalist worth his salt knows, for example, that Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey was unprecedented in American history and a clear obstruction of justice. and hence every serious media outlet from the New York Times to the Washington Post is going to report this. Expecting one of them to miss this story would be like expecting a professional gold panner to miss a giant gold nugget the size of his thumb glaring back at him – it just isn’t going to happen.

So, you ask – how is it that virtually every major story reported by one accredited media outlet, is also reported by all the others. Doesn’t this prove that none of them are doing any independent journalism? Well, in order to understand this phenomenon, you have to understand that journalism is a science, just like any other skilled profession, and the better you get at it, the closer you get to the same conclusions that the best in the business are reaching. And given that top media companies only hire the best of the best, low and behold they all reach the same conclusions about which news is important, and how it should be reported.

So the next time you hear some low life from the alternative media take a shot at the credibility of established media corporations, just remember that the higher you climb in any profession, the more you start to think and act like the masters of your field. Accredited media corporations will remain accredited, and quacks will remain quacks. It’s always been this way, and always will be, so get used to it.

The dirty orange maniac is literally taking orders from evil Putin. In the lamest documentary ever made, homophobic Putin says to the traitor Stone “it’s just a matter of personnel”. As if you’re even allowed to sack people out of hand – I’m glad that we’re in a more progressive jurisdiction where if you even tell an employee that you don’t like them, you’ll end up in a power of $#!t.

Does that mean, that the MSM and political establishment in most countries are run by sold out eunuchs? One sniff of his ass and the eunuch knows what headlines to publish, or what law to implement, or what centralized taxes to impose, or what currency denomination to make invalid. We have passed the stone age, industrial age, and information age, and are truly in the eunuch age. Darwinian evolution right before our eyes. All that “we, the people” can do, is rise up as one, in synchronized, unanimous glorious praise of the eunuchs in government, the courts, and the media.

Excellent article that highlights similar problems in the Global Warming field. 10 or 20% of the smartest scientists have reached a consensus on Global Warming being our biggest threat, whilst the other 80% really need to catch up with the smart ones. Denying man-made Global Warming will continue to show lesser scientists as second rate, no matter how much evidence they produce about other reasons for weather changes.
Your article should be plain common sense MDB but there will always be people jealous of Accredited Journalists and try to spoil the party.

You’re aware that AGW can be true while the specific predictions of calamity false, yes?

Vladmir Putin

So you are saying AGW is true because it is false?
People led by Guy McPherson, and Carol Baker have gone through all stages of grief, unable to bear the calamity that is heading toward civilization. Now that there is no more grieving to do, they are waiting for new gods to invent more stages of grief. The madmen with geo-engineering should be able to provide them what they need.

Global warming is a scam, you can tell that by Al Gore’s face. It flushes hot pink when someone questions his non-stop, award-winning, MSM promoted, accredited BS. The funny thing is that eunuchs everywhere have changed the Environment Ministry to Environment and Climate Change Ministry.
If Trump can stop this scam, we should see the beginning of big changes for the better, a more peaceful, saner world. Yes, petro-industries have harmed some places, but geo-engineering or similar mad ideas will kill the earth. Earth runs on cycles, day/night, seasons, waxing/waning of the moon, hot/cold, wet/dry seasons, growth/death and so many others. We need to adapt to the cycles, and not try to reduce everything to a static state. Prisoners are broken by using high intensity light 24×7, that is not the way to live. Modern LEDs with blue-spectrum light cause sleep disturbances.

The cycles are all part of the climate models. They already know about these cycles, idiot. Releasing 200M years’ worth of carbon back into the biosphere in the span of 150 years isn’t “adapting to the natural cycles.”

If the last ice age ended 10,000 years ago, but humans were around for much longer, then we can survive the next ice age, or globally-warmed age, without geo-engineering.
Sea levels have been much higher in the past, so it is entirely plausible that sea levels will rise in the future. But people looking at tides, and then claiming Florida went under water from global warming, is idiotic. Or accuse the sun of global warming, when the sun itself goes through cycles. Even the warming effect from CO2 doesn’t increase linearly, and matters very little after it reaches a certain concentration.
If the people took part in the many cycles of the earth and the stars, then we’ll not have the ugly houses, box stores, and solar panels. And there will be less pollution. If we want the elites to fix the earth, because the cycles are not how it is all supposed to work, then we are out of luck. No cycles = death.

Wrong again, the bottleneck was 5,000

P!$$ off Anon – BFM is accredited. If he says 5,000, then you can be sure it’s 5,000.

There’s generally only one accredited way to see things so it just seems natural that the Accredited Media would report things in a similar fashion. Anything outside that viewpoint should be viewed with suspicion and be considered contemptible and dangerous. You can not allow information to be dispensed to the masses by those who might misinform or mislead people so as to gain influence and power over them.

Whilst they have an over representation in Government and Media, I for one feel much better knowing that God’s Chosen People are in charge. Are you a Satanist? Not that it would be a bad thing, we are all free to do as we will and part of the richness and strength that diversity has brought us.

Soon we’ll have a universal basic income and robots will be building low cost or even free housing for people. So, if you’re working at a job you don’t like, and paying lots of money for an apartment or house, don’t worry, soon you will be free.

My job isn’t much fun now most of the trees are gone, and though the rent on my cabin is peanuts, a design flaw in the roof makes it leak when it rains, so I support universal income and house building robots!

richandrenee

It’s disgusting how filthy right-wing Trump has thrown the dream of a universal basic income and robot built free houses back years.

richandrenee

Central banks are going to tax robots and then use the magic of fractional reserve banking (with the help of the TBTF banks) to fund the UBI. It’s like you don’t know anything!!!
