Fake News Goes Bust: Liberal Propaganda Outlet ThinkProgress is Shutting Down for Good

The Center for American Progress-founded propaganda outlet has gone bust.

Published

ThinkProgress, the beleaguered left-wing propaganda outlet, is officially closing its doors today after undergoing serious financial trouble over the past several years.

A project of the Center for American Progress (CAP) – a Washington D.C. think-tank founded by Clinton insider and suspected pizza partier John Podesta – it will close as they were unable to find a publisher to run the site or a donor willing to pony up the funds to keep it operational despite its growing revenue losses.

“Given that we could find no new publisher, we have no other real option but to fold the ThinkProgress website back into CAP’s broader online presence with a focus on analysis of policy, politics, and news events through the lens of existing CAP and CAP Action staff experts,” said Navin Nayak, who works as executive director for the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

“Conversations on how to do so are just beginning, but we will seek to reinvent it as a different platform for progressive change,” he added.

The last remaining dozen employees for ThinkProgress are being fired, and given severance packages that last until November. The organization’s journalists had unionized back in 2015, thinking it would help them receive better benefits and working conditions at the organization, but that scheme clearly backfired on them.

Just a few months ago, Big League Politics reported on a staff revolt at ThinkProgress after they announced projected losses of $3 million in revenue for 2019. Since its peak during the Obama administration, ThinkProgress has sunk like a stone.

“Unfortunately, ThinkProgress has had a large and growing budget gap for going on two years now,” Nayak said in June.

While ThinkProgress was never a money maker, it was worth keeping around for Democratic Party insiders due to its relevance and its ability to effectively discern left-wing propaganda. No longer an effective vehicle to do so, the media operation will be shuttered and the site will be changed into a glorified blog for CAP scholars.

“Like most media organizations, ThinkProgress has relied on advertising revenue as a major source of funding, increasingly subject to the behavior of social-media platforms and their decisions on news distribution. As with many other digital media organizations, 2017 and 2018 were particularly challenging years in this regard, as ThinkProgress experienced a 40 percent drop in ad revenue over just one year, creating an inevitable budgetary strain,” Nayak added.

This is the latest instance of fake news hacks getting the ax as the market share for their propaganda dries up in the digital age. Over 3,100 media professionals have lost their jobs in this year alone, as entities like Vice Media, Buzzfeed, and HuffPo struggle to remain afloat.

“Learn to code” was once considered a taunt to these obsolescent scribblers, but it may be practical advice to journalists who are not likely to hang onto their phony baloney jobs for very much longer.

SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror

Et tu, Fox News?

Published

on

A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.

Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.

“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.

“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.

“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”

“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.

Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:

A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.

The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.

“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”

Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.

“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.

Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.

President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
