The Press as Elites


   I was watching a bit of CSPAN tonight and they had the ridiculous scene as guests are introduced to waiting cameras outside the state dinner for the Italian Prime Minister.
    Never mind the earlier Rose Garden scene where the POTUS took time out of a joint presser with the PM to attack Donald Trump and grab some headlines.
 Back to the dinner. I saw Mr. and Mrs Chuck Todd introduced and in  walked  the Meet the Press host smiling and waving like the celebrity he is . (Governor Cuomo and his gal pal were there too)
    If you Google him and the event there is a wonderful photo showing how starstruck he is strutting in front of the paparazzi with his tall, leggy bride.
    Mr. Todd is a sad successor to previous MTP hosts and watching him strut into the dinner with the elites was just another example of the unholy collusion between corporate, celebrity news media and current ruling class.
     Mr.Todd and the rest of NBC must feel confident their candidate is on her way across the finish line.
     And don't forget...96% of the money donated to campaigns by "working journalists" is donated to......drumroll please.....Hillary Clinton.

Jeff, where did you get the info that 96% of working journalists donate to Hillary Clinton? You should check into the restriction the employees of news organization have follow before they donate political candidates.

And the remainder is donated to the Clinton Foundation.

7:22 That's not what Jeff said, He said that 96% of what journalists donate goes to Clinton.

Learn to read and comprehend for Gods sake! You must work at the Times!

10:46 Can you point out two news organizations time and date that would help confirm that, "it's all over the news".

7:22 my mistake it should have been as you said 96% of what journalists donated to Hillary Clinton. It still doesn't answer my question as to where the information comes from. I did ask Jeff, he might give an answer if he wants too.

Maybe the percentage came from a facebook picture caption. Or more likely from Skankboy. The king of internt lies!
Bwah ha ha ha...
