Shutting Up Trump: Media Censorship

Reporters and Silicon Valley Computer Geeks deciding what you can hear and see from the President of the United States! How did it come to this? And where are we headed when the “Free Press” is no longer free, or objective, or a watchdog of the government? Rack and Larry talk about a frightening future:

Just Trump Lacks Compassion?

If you listen to CNN’s “Commentator” Don Lemon, who is actually a propagandist, it is solely President Trump who lacks all compassion,with all his decisions driven by politics, rather than concern for the nation which he was elected to serve and protect. But Larry Sparano has a different view, contrary to that of his long-time pal and news producer Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Ministries of Propaganda: The State of News Today?

Wherever you turn for news today, analysts and commentators, often disguised as “reporters” are yelling, screaming, and distorting what is supposed to be real information. Why is this happening, and how much worse will it get? That’s what On Target’s Larry Sparano and veteran AP newsman Bryant Thomas are chewing on today:

Only Fox Viewers Are Lied To?

CNN is running a piece from political reporter and commentator Chris Cillizza. It cites a survey showing that Fox News viewers are much less likely to view other news outlets than those who sample a variety of news sources. And hence, Fox News junkies have a much more distorted view of the world and are much more prone to accepting the lies which Trump and Fox News purvey. But On Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York have a big difference of opinion about that:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Big Stories Media Mis-Reported in 2019

It’s not so much what the media did report in 2019 as what it didn’t report, or failed to report fairly, accurately, and vigorously. Some of those failures are pointed out by political commentator Kyle Kulinski in Secular Talk. On-Target’s Larry Sparano discusses the issue with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York

Critic: Trump Should Be Called Liar More Often??!!!

According to Eric Boehlert of the Daily Kos, the media are remiss in not calling Trump a liar often enough, and are too timid in expressing “moral” outrage. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano wonders what planet Boehlert has been reporting from. Here is Larry’s contrary opinion, in discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Disinformation and Misinformation: TRENDING in the Media

How can you know if what the media is telling you is true? It’s not easy. On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York have a few pointers:

President Bloomberg? Is there a path for a New York Billionaire?

The already crowded race for the Democratic nomination has grown even more crowded –and disjointed–with the entry of former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Will his money and management skills be enough to score him a bulls eye in his quest for the Presidency? Is it really as much of a long shot as many observers think? On-Target’s Larry Sparano and former AP Newsman Bryant Thomas discuss his chances:

Manufacturing Consent: Brainwashing now in High Gear

It’s been more than three decades since Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman published their landmark book, “Manufacturing Consent.” It exposed how media shapes thought and how news outlets and reporters are used to carry the party line and control dissent in the U.S. and other nations. Has anything changed in the years since? Is media now less or more controlled by the power elites? Here’s On Target’s Larry Sparano, in discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Media falsely hyping “Corruption” in the U.S.?

Some commentators are claiming that media hype is creating the false impression that corruption is much more widespread in the U.S. than is actually the case. Some of those opinions are from Trump critics trying to downplay the sweet deals that Joe Biden’s son had in Ukraine and China. On-Target’s Larry Sparano talks about that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
