Corp Media Cites Unnamed Sources to Refute a DOJ Warning Not to Trust Unnamed Sources

As the corporate press continues fecklessly insisting the public ‘just trust’ the unnamed officials and anonymous sources it perpetually cites when running shock reports on the inner dealings of government, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — acting authority in the Russia probe, thanks to Jeff Sessions’ recusal — stunningly warned the public it must remain “skeptical about anonymous allegations.”

People should be wary of “accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Rosenstein admonished late Thursday. “The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”

Without elaborating on the abrupt need for the warning — one which savvier members of the public and independent media have long been cognizant — Rosentein’s statement followed a Washington Post piece on an investigation headed by Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller into President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and possible connections to Russian meddling in the election.

Indeed, this warning also rides the coattails of a now-voluminous cache of articles from the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and other once-illustrious media organizations, touting — as if steel truth — unnamed and thus unverifiable officials who promise it was The Russians interfering in the U.S. presidential elections who manipulated public perception to sway the vote for Donald Trump.

But the irony and magnanimous hypocrisy of the corporate-backed press didn’t end with reporting Rosenstein’s warning.

CNN, in an article on the deputy AG’s statement, ridiculously upped the hilarity factor, citing not only another anonymous source, but one putatively from inside — wait for it — the Department of Justice.

Advice for YouTube Advertising Partners

The current state of advertising on YouTube seems to be in chaos, especially for creators of controversial content.  I am reminded of the early days of television, when the preferred mode of advertising was print media (ie. newspapers).  As a result, pioneers in television broadcasting had an opportunity to attract business from print advertisers (watch the video, below).  In the very early days of TV, shows had sponsors, and the personalities in the shows plugged the product, during the show–similar to how product positioning is used in modern movies.

Did you know that “soap operas” got their name because the afternoon TV shows were sponsored by the makers of laundry detergent?  Of course, this was back in the day when married women often didn’t have the luxury of working outside of the home.  Shows like “Days of Our Lives” or “The Young and Restless” were often preceded and followed by sponsor messages from companies like Oxydol.

So, if you have built-up your YouTube audience, why contact companies directly for sponsorships?  This is a FANTASTIC way to help nail down the lid on the coffin for the lamestram media.


Hey YouTubers! If You are Whining About Lost Ad Revenue, Listen Up.

The video shown below is a TV ad from the early days of television, before adverstisers took TV very seriously. The legacy media are losing money–if they weren’t, they wouldn’t care which YouTube videos were placed next to their ads.

If you have been whining about the sudden loss of ad revenue, it is time to put on your grown-up pants and take advantage of the opportunity that is before you.

Besides, if you are running a “truther” channel, isn’t hypocritical to accept money from corporations of which you do not approve?


A History of Canadian Television

I grew up with CKCO-TV on the TV dial… I highly recommend Millenials and Generation Z people to watch this, to gain a better understanding of the impact that allowing the media to become centralized has had. This station served a fairly conservative segment of the country, largely populated by German immigrants and farmers. Note the lack of fat people in the clips.
