Video: BLP’s McCabe tells CBC ‘Marketplace of ideas’ cures #fakenews not bureaucrats

Published

on

Big League Politics’ Neil W. McCabe was featured Friday on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “The Investigators,” program about journalism in the Age of Trump, where he talked about #fakenews, the mainstream media and the tendency of reporters to keep secrets instead of telling them.

“I think people ought to be concerned if people in the government are going after Facebook over #fakenews,” McCabe said to the show’s host Diane Swain. “You don’t want some bureaucrat deciding what #fakenews is—you want a competing media outlet to go after it.”

McCabe said the solution is the marketplace of ideas.

“Chevrolet and Ford watch each other, so nobody can get away with too much, so that is the antidote to so-called #fakenews,” he said.

McCabe joined Big League Politics as a national political reporter after covering Capitol Hill for Breitbart News. In addition to other journalist positions, such as the DC Bureau chief of One America News Network and staff reporter for The Pilot, Boston’s Catholic paper, he deployed to Iraq for 15 months as a combat historian.

“The truth is that reporters keep more secrets than they ever tell,” he said. “Reporters are actually the ones who hold secrets back from people, because they want to protect relationships, or they don’t think the readers or the audience can handle it.”

“What we’re trying to do is we are saying: ‘We don’t have those relationships and so we’re looking to tell the truth as it is.”

Swain asked McCabe what Canadians should know about the American political coverage, which she said was not as contentious or harsh as it is in the United States.

“People tell me: ‘Why can’t we go back to the 1970s when everyone in Washington got along,” he said.

“Well, in the 1970s, the Democrats railroaded out of the White House a president, who won 49 states,” he said. “I would say, there is always going to be that polarization, that divisiveness.”

In America, politics gets polarized because the White House and the presidency are winner-take-all, he said. “Whereas in a parliamentary system, you can sort of fiddle in the middle.”

Canadians have to understand that the American media is a free-for-all, he said.

“It’s that clash of ideas, but it’s also competing elites, there’s regionalism, I mean, this a big country of 300 million people and it’s all smashing together all the time,” he said.

Despite the vibrancy of the marketplace of ideas, there is an establishment in the United States that controls the government bureaucracy, the media, the universities and the corporate boardrooms, he said.

“They want to hold onto the power that they have.”

“The big media outlets, like the CNNs, The New York Times, The Washington Post, they put out that narrative that carries the day, and that narrative is usually the establishment narrative and it doesn’t always reflect what going on,” he said.

EXPOSED: City of Seattle Forces White Employees to Undergo Marxist Re-Education Training

This is creepy racist stuff from the Left.

Published

on

Journalist Christopher F. Rufo of City Journal has retrieved documents showing the Marxist re-education training that white government employees in the city of Seattle were forced to attend.

Core American concepts such as “objectivity” and “individualism” were classified as “internalized racial superiority” and demonized during the training.

White employees were told to accept an increased possibility for physical harm, a willingness to lose all control, and a potential loss of employment as a way of “undoing” their whiteness.

They produced additional propaganda in order to further convince the white employees to hate themselves for their skin color.

The white employees were instructed to alienate friends and family while belligerently proselytizing their new dogma, a tactic regularly used by cults on their new victims.

Rufo is pushing to get the videos of the diversity training from the city in order to figure out which individuals and groups were paid with taxpayer money to administer the marxist re-education:

Seattle has sunk into anarchy and chaos because of its left-wing politicaly leadership, Big League Politics has reported.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan initially celebrated CHAZ/CHOP, the former autonomous zone that descended into mayhem amidst countless allegations of rape, murder and assault, in an attempt to stick it to President Donald Trump:

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has come out explicitly in favor of the far-left Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), rebuking President Donald Trump for coming out against the lawless collective.

“Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society and provide true equity for communities of color is not terrorism – it is patriotism,” Durkan wrote in a tweet.

“The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone #CHAZ is not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection – it is a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world. Given his track record, it’s not hard to believe that Trump is wrong, yet again,” she wrote in a subsequent Tweet.

She continued on for many more tweets, making every excuse she could muster for the lawless anarchistic protesters who have seized several blocks of the city and defaced the abandoned police station located therein.

“Seattle is passionate, we demand justice, and I believe we will be at the forefront of true, meaningful change. Nothing will distract our city from the work that needs to be done,” Durkan wrote.

“I remain committed to working with community, including the organizers currently on Capitol Hill, to re-imagine how we do things as a city, and what investments in public health, safety, and economic justice look like,” she added.

The marxists now dominate institutional power across the former land of the free, particularly in liberal areas like Seattle. The result could mean the death of America and by proxy Western Civilization.
