Trump Takes Reporters Off Camera at Daily Press Briefings. New O’Keefe CNN Undercover Video Shows Why.

In case you haven’t heard by now, President Donald J. Trump is giving a bunch of unruly children a time out.

And, they haven’t yet figured out why.

Please allow me to elucidate as this post continues…

According to The Daily Caller,

CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta spent the White House press briefing Monday rudely interrupting White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Acosta has been complaining about the White House’s increased use of off-camera briefings, and instead of waiting to be called on like other reporters Monday, he decided to shout out his questions. The Daily Caller counted a total of five interruptions during the briefing.

Spicer called on a reporter who had raised her hand and Acosta interjected himself and asked if President Trump believes the health care bill in the Senate is “mean.” Spicer replied, “There’s no camera on Jim.” Acosta then repeatedly asked, “Why don’t you turn the cameras on?” Spicer then apologized to the reporter Acosta was interrupting.

Acosta’s subsequent interruptions inquiring about the briefing being untelevised were likewise ignored by Spicer.  The White House press secretary said in a radio interview last week that he prefers the off-camera briefings as reporters “want to become YouTube stars” when the cameras are on.

After the briefing was over, Acosta did a stand-up shot from the White House and complained to CNN viewers that “Sean Spicer has refused to take questions from CNN for weeks now.”

“We’ve largely been just blackballed during these briefings,” Acosta said.

That happened on Monday.

Yesterday, the reason that CNN ad the rest of the Main Stream Media are no longer being allowed to “pontificate in the spotlight” at the Daily Press Briefings was made crystal clear.

They are just what President Trump says that they are: Purveyors of FAKE NEWS.

Project Veritas has released a video of CNN Producer John Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.”I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”

He confirms that the driving factor at CNN is ratings:

“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss… All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business.”
 According to the CNN Producer, business is booming. “Trump is good for business right now,” he concluded.

Bonifield further goes on to explain that the instructions come straight from the top, citing the CEO, Jeff Zucker:

“Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN (Jeff Zucker) said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia.”

Bonifield also acknowledged: “I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.” He continues:

“I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”

“To report not on facts, but instead on narratives that yield high ratings, is exactly the definition of fake news,” said James O’Keefe. “We said we are going after the media, and there is a lot more to come.”

America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to  have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.

At the rate that these stories are being debunked, most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

 

Thanks to the discovery of the Obama Administration’s purposeful negligence and now, the undercover video by Project Veritas, the “Russia Collusion Story” has been dealt a death blow.

Even as I write this, the Democrats and their Propagandists have pirouetted to focus on the Republicans attempt to replace Obamacare.

And, unfortunately, the lies will just keep on coming.

Like the attention-seeking spoiled brats that they are, the Main Stream Media believe that they can get away with anything.

However, as recent weeks have shown CNN…

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:8

Until He Comes,

KJ

    As per usual, KJ, another terrific essay, but I’ll pick a single nit, just to expand and clarify the point…

    Where you say,

    “… most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s ‘anonymous sources’ are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.” …

    … I would add that we also surmise (to a point of near certainty) that a number at least equal to those voices emanates from disgruntled & disaffected members of the BHØ Administration — whether or not they still occupy their positions in the Deep State bureaucracy — who seek to affect as much disruption or even sabotage against an Administration they still view as illegitimate, and directly harmful to their preferred policies & chosen worldview.
