The Alt-Media Has Way More Fun than the Mainstream Media

It’s not exactly news that the Alternative Media is under assault: skeptical inquiry and dissenting narratives are smeared as “fake news,” and new suspiciously corporate entities (NewsGuard et al.) claim to be “protecting” consumers from “fake news” as cover for their real agenda, which is limiting public exposure to skeptical, dissenting independent analysis.

Social Media and Search corporations are also censoring non-corporate, non-state media, again under the purported guise of stripping out “fake news.”

Despite this semi-official censorship, we in the Alt-Media are having way more fun that the anxiety-ridden serfs in the Mainstream Media. There are many hard-working, honest journalists slaving away in the Mainstream (more accurately, the corporate-state) Media, but there’s the neofeudal reality of their employment: If what they report undermines the ruling elites, they’re not allowed to do their job.

MSM journalists have no agency: they report what they’re told to report. They also have no control over what gets by their employers’ editorial / corporate filters: question a big advertiser and your report will quietly be buried. Question the approved narrative and conclusion, and you’ll be shunned, blacklisted, etc. If you make a fuss, you’ll be let go in the next round of lay-offs.

Truth Slip AWESOME FOR GOLD: MSM Anchor BUYS PHYSICAL GOLD

Thank’s World Gold Council for the Tip:

Here are some of the best parts:

I bought gold for the first time this year. Not a gold ETF like GLD or a gold miner stock like Barrick (ABX), but actual physical gold. I had a limited budget, but wanted it as a diversification and a small hedge against the coming zombie apocalypse or market crash, take your pick.

Jim Rickards, noted gold bug and author of numerous books on gold, including “The New Case for Gold,” recommended I buy…

The Mainstream Media Bet the Farm on Hillary–and Lost

The mainstream media bet the farm on Hillary Clinton, confident that their dismissal of every skeptical inquiry as a “conspiracy” would guarantee her victory. It now appears they have lost their bet. Let’s do something radical and be honest for a moment: the mainstream media has smoothed the path to Hillary’s coronation in countless often subtle ways.

MSM “Opinion” hacks have unleashed unrelenting attacks on legitimate inquiries with accusations of “conspiracy” and obsequious kow-towing headlines such as “Can we please stop talking about Hillary’s health?”

Suggestions that the Clinton Foundation engaged in “pay to play” during Hillary’s term as secretary of state are glossed over; yes, it looks bad, the MSM reluctantly admits, they they hurry to add that no impropriety can be proven in court.

Given the foundation is run by attorneys who obfuscate the meaning of the word “is,” do you really think they’re going to leave tracks that can make it to court?

The Democratic National Committee’s corruption was downplayed, and the mainstream media’s pathetic lack of inquiry was of a piece with old Soviet “news”: a scapegoat or two is cut out of the leadership photo, and the DNC corruption machine moves on untouched.

Manipulation Going Mainstream as Bloomberg Asks: ‘How to Keep Banks From Rigging Gold Prices?’

Last week the financial MSM admitted for the first time that the West’s gold is being physically drained to Asia and that London’s gold vaults are “virtually empty.
Now, allegations that banks are rigging the gold and silver markets continue to gain credence among the mainstream as Bloomberg has published an article by Rosa Abrantes-Metz entitled ‘How to Keep Banks From Rigging Gold Prices’’.

Rosa Abrantes-Metz concludes that gold prices may be manipulated and gives evidence to support her assertion.
