A Washington Post opinion column published Wednesday displayed the legacy outlet’s unabashed elitism, calling to give “elites a bigger say” in presidential election processes.
The column, originally titled “It’s time to give the elites a bigger say in choosing the president,” was written by Marquette University professor Julia Azari.
Azari expresses her desire to see presidential primaries altered to “preference polls,” in which everyday voters would merely have the ability to express their preference for candidates. It appears as if in her model of primaries, the actual vote totals would be non-binding and meaningless; the people could merely make suggestions that would be approved or denied by a cabal of backroom party elites.
Establishment elites have called for such a change to the presidential nomination process before, in which party officials would essentially take control of primaries away from voters. Such proposals appear primed to gain steam after the rise of populist politicians such as Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the latter of whom Azari points to as an argument for show primaries.
After a tidal wave of criticism, the title of the piece was changed to “It’s time to switch to preference primaries.”
The Washington Post is owned by Amazon oligarch Jeff Bezos, a global uber-billionaire known for his opposition to populists on the left and right such as Sanders and Trump. A proposal to strip voters of their primary election rights would serve his interests well, a sign that Azari’s piece may be more of a paid advertisement than a genuine political proposal.
Azari’s desire to do away with presidential primaries would fundamentally strip American citizens from choosing who they want for president. It would practically ensure the United States is changed from a democratic system to a naked oligarchy, in which billionaire elites such as Bezos are given full reign to dictate the results of nominal elections.
Her proposal isn’t entirely different than the show elections the Soviet Union and Communist China have been known for.
The Washington Post fixated its moralistic motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness” above the header of the arrogant opinion piece, blissfully unaware of the irony in making such a claim while proposing to strip American voters of their ability to choose presidential candidates.
Fox News Considers Hiring Brother of Former Influential Obama Admin Official as CEO
Doubling down on their betrayal.
As Fox News’ television ratings continue to tank after betraying President Donald Trump and enforcing election fraud, they are looking at doubling down on their recipe for failure.
Fox News is reportedly considering the appointment of David Rhodes as their new CEO. David is the brother of Ben Rhodes, a former influential member of the Obama administration who regularly propagandizes against President Donald Trump and his supporters on social media.
Rhode is rumored to be a replacement option for Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, who has presided over the network’s precipitous decline in recent months. The job of Fox News President Jay Wallace is also reportedly in danger as the network sinks far below its competitors in the ratings’ column.
Rhodes was formerly the president of CBS until 2019 where he was the youngest network news president in American history. He started working for News UK, the British division of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, last year. It is speculated that Rhodes could be hired to bring in left-leaning and younger viewers, completing the network’s complete betrayal of their loyal conservative viewership.
It is also being reported that Murdoch, now 90 years of age, has been reasserting himself in the administration of Fox News. His son, Lachlan, was named heir apparent to Rupert but is badly mismanaging the former juggernaut that had previously dominated the American TV news market for nearly two decades.
According to Meaww, an unnamed Fox News insider said: “Rupert re-taking the reins is a sign of the gross mismanagement to date.”
Big League Politics has reported on the conservative exodus from Fox News after they led the election night chicanery that ultimately robbed Trump of the presidency:
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News brass hates President Trump and his MAGA movement so much that they are killing the golden goose due to their rage. The conservative swamp runs deeper than most could have imagined before Trump’s rise.
