CNN’s deplorable propaganda lie exposed trying to understate President Trump’s inauguration support crowd
This is the scandalous lying image montage misused by CNN as deliberate misinformation. The implied critical message against Trump, that suggests he attracted far fewer crowd supporters that Obama, is a fabricated lie. It goes to the heart of CNN’s media bias and propaganda that only discredits the organisation from being credible journalism.
The 20th January 2017 Trump inauguration crowd image on the right was taken by Reuters around 9am from the United States Capitol looking up the National Mall towards the Washington Monument. It was taken as crowds were still arriving some three hours before Trump’s actual inauguration.
It is a leftist lie by CNN which was disseminated as propaganda is to fellow comrade leftist media. The purpose? To undermine President Trump’s popular support and legitimacy.
In truth, the following image was taken when President Trump was delivering his inaugural speech at around 12:30pm, delayed due to a violent anarchist riot in the nearby Washington DC Metro Center.
The following truly comparable image was taken when President-elect Obama was being sworn in in 2009 at around 12:05pm.
It discloses the deplorable reality of the orchestrated media bias by CNN and by the anti-Trump media pack – an example of how they have descended into a desperate leftist partisan propaganda tool of the sore-losing leftist Democratic National Committee.
President Jeff Zucker of CNN Worldwide oversees all of CNN’s businesses. He is responsible for this grotesque lie, and for the campaign of anti-Trump biased media coverage during the election campaign.
Zucker is blinded and corrupted by leftist ideology and so a propaganda agent, the Joseph Goebbels of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He stirs division between Americans and incites hatred and extremism.
Is it any wonder why President Trump condemns the “dishonest media”?
President Trump’s new Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, has quickly responded criticising the media bias as being outright “falsehoods” and indicated that if the lies keep coming then The White House will be countering with “alternative facts” so that the American public get the truth.
[Read the full unedited transcript of Sean Spicer’s statement below]
Yet the CNN television network made a choice not to broadcast the Spicer statement live. Instead, the statement was monitored and then reported on after the fact.
CNN, NBC and CBS and the anti-Trump media pack then tried to claim that Saturday’s Women’s protest march crowd the next day on Washington against Trump’s presidency outdrew Trump’s inauguration crowd.
So what is the media agenda? More Trump hate?
The White House new Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, highlighted that such media coverage suggesting a higher turnout at the Women’s March in Washington and at previous inaugurations compare to Trump’s inauguration amounted to attacks on the president’s political legitimacy.
“I’m saying there’s an obsession by the media to delegitimise this president, and we are not going to sit around and let it happen. We’re going to fight back tooth and nail every day, and twice on Sunday,” he stated.
Selective reporting by the Anti-Trump Media Pack made hardly a mention of the violent and destructive riot by Black Bloc anarchists through Washington’s Metro Center smashing shop fronts and terrorizing local pedestrians. Orchestrated riots by these anti-American violent anarchists took place on inauguration day at cities across the country such as in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis. Considerable criminal damage was caused and riot squads had to be deployed.
Yet the Anti-Trump Media Pack focused all on the pink tea cosy protest by peaceful women, not the black masked rioting by Commie Nazis – mainly young male student anarchists.
No media mention about President’s phone calls with the leaders of Canada and Mexico, and that he would be meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May next Friday.
Similar misinformation by the leftist media has come about an invented “feud” between Trump and the US intelligence community.
“One last shot at me,” Trump tweeted about the intelligence community on January 11. “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
No media pack mention was made of President Trump’s supporting and motivational address to 300 CIA staff and management.
Yet, all the spiteful media did was claim his address was disrespectful.
Here it is. You decide!
The Democrat media aligned misinformation about Trump’s inauguration crowd size, is in sequence to the fake news like the Russian ‘golden shower’ hoax memos authored by a former British MI-6 spy and Cambridge graduate, Christopher Steele (52).
Steele’s spy alumni agency Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd was paid indirectly by the Democrat National Committee to invent a fake lurid dossier on Trump deliberately to try to discredit the then president-elect on October 31 2016, just one week out from the election. It was desperate Democrat revenge for Clinton email leaks by Wikileaks.
Steele’s agency claims to “develop bespoke solutions for clients”. But once the dossier was exposed as a deliberate fraud by Steele, Steele’s Moscow collaborator, ex-KGB/FSB General Oleg Yerovinkin (61) who helped Steele compile the misinformation, was found dead in the back of his Lexus in Moscow on Boxing Day in mysterious circumstances. Steele has since become one of America’s most wanted and has gone into hiding from his home in Surrey.
Steele and Yerovinkin
So the CNN brand is trash. Jeff Zucker needs to sack himself and get a job in China with the Chinese Comminst Party’s Xinhua News Agency.
“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”
“Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.”
“If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes accepted as truth.”
“If you tell the same lie enough times, people will believe it; and the bigger the lie, the better.”
“This is the secret of propaganda: Those who are to be persuaded by it should be completely immersed in the ideas of the propaganda, without ever noticing that they are being immersed in it.”
“Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology.”
“Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.”
“…the rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious.”
“The truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Zucker in German means sugar.
Transcript of White House Press Secretary statement to the media, 21st January 2017
“Good evening. Thank you guys for coming. I know our first official press briefing is going to be on Monday, but I wanted to give you a few updates on the President’s activities. But before I get to the news of the day, I think I’d like to discuss a little bit of the coverage of the last 24 hours.
Yesterday, at a time when our nation and the world was watching the peaceful transition of power and, as the President said, the transition and the balance of power from Washington to the citizens of the United States, some members of the media were engaged in deliberately false reporting. For all the talk about the proper use of Twitter, two instances yesterday stand out.
One was a particular egregious example in which a reporter falsely tweeted out that the bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. had been removed from the Oval Office. After it was pointed out that this was just plain wrong, the reporter casually reported and tweeted out and tried to claim that a Secret Service agent must have just been standing in front of it. This was irresponsible and reckless.
Secondly, photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way, in one particular tweet, to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall. This was the first time in our nation’s history that floor coverings have been used to protect the grass on the Mall. That had the effect of highlighting any areas where people were not standing, while in years past the grass eliminated this visual. This was also the first time that fencing and magnetometers went as far back on the Mall, preventing hundreds of thousands of people from being able to access the Mall as quickly as they had in inaugurations past.
Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted. No one had numbers, because the National Park Service, which controls the National Mall, does not put any out. By the way, this applies to any attempts to try to count the number of protestors today in the same fashion.
We do know a few things, so let’s go through the facts. We know that from the platform where the President was sworn in, to 4th Street, it holds about 250,000 people. From 4th Street to the media tent is about another 220,000. And from the media tent to the Washington Monument, another 250,000 people. All of this space was full when the President took the Oath of Office. We know that 420,000 people used the D.C. Metro public transit yesterday, which actually compares to 317,000 that used it for President Obama’s last inaugural. This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe. Even the New York Times printed a photograph showing a misrepresentation of the crowd in the original Tweet in their paper, which showed the full extent of the support, depth in crowd, and intensity that existed.
These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong. The President was also at the — as you know, the President was also at the Central Intelligence Agency and greeted by a raucous overflow crowd of some 400-plus CIA employees. There were over 1,000 requests to attend, prompting the President to note that he’ll have to come back to greet the rest. The employees were ecstatic that he’s the new Commander-in-Chief, and he delivered them a powerful and important message. He told them he has their back, and they were grateful for that. They gave him a five-minute standing ovation at the end in a display of their patriotism and their enthusiasm for his presidency.
I’d also note that it’s a shame that the CIA didn’t have a CIA Director to be with him today when he visited, because the Democrats have chosen — Senate Democrats are stalling the nomination of Mike Pompeo and playing politics with national security. That’s what you guys should be writing and covering, instead of sowing division about tweets and false narratives.
The President is committed to unifying our country, and that was the focus of his inaugural address. This kind of dishonesty in the media, the challenging — that bringing about our nation together is making it more difficult.
There’s been a lot of talk in the media about the responsibility to hold Donald Trump accountable. And I’m here to tell you that it goes two ways. We’re going to hold the press accountable, as well. The American people deserve better. And as long as he serves as the messenger for this incredible movement, he will take his message directly to the American people where his focus will always be.
And with that, a few other updates from the day. The President had a constructive conversation with Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada about strengthening the relationship between our two nations. They also discussed setting up additional meetings in the days to come, which we will follow up on. He also spoke to Prime Minister Peña Nieto of Mexico, and talked about a visit on trade, immigration and security that will occur on the 31st. The President will welcome his first foreign leader this Thursday when the United Kingdom’s Theresa May will come to Washington — on Friday.
Tomorrow, the President will oversee his Assistants to the President being sworn in. The staff will then have an ethics briefing, a briefing on the proper use and handling of classified information. Further updates as far as what he will do — oh, and then in the evening, he will have a reception for law enforcement and first responders that helped support the inauguration.
Thank you guys for being here tonight. I will see you on Monday.”
