Our national mainstream news media conglomerates have been deliberately, boldly and deceitfully influencing Presidential primaries for many years. It is obvious they have not been just reporting the “news” but rather creating it and have been doing so while demonstrating a clear bias in favor of or against specific federal candidates. Therefore, they have become corporations acting to directly influence federal elections. The fact is that national mainstream media has strayed very far away from its intended purpose. So, why have they not become required to file expenditures with the FEC under federal law? Even though the Citizens United decision lifted the ban on corporations from being able to engage in electioneering communications and from making individual expenditures, the subsequent rulings broadly allowing these activities should not be confused with the requirements to still report them. Just a subject to ponder. According to the FEC:
In January 2010, the Supreme Court held that the Act’s prohibitions against corporate spending on independent expenditures or electioneering communications were unconstitutional. However, the Supreme Court upheld statutory provisions that require these communications to contain disclaimers and be reported to the Commission.
Although Donald Trump rightfully exposed the deception of yet another “stacked” live debate audience for Saturday’s Republican debate, there would have been no way for him to have known how much worse it actually was sounding to the millions watching in the television audience. Even considering the live audience, some people are now claiming that microphones were strategically placed in various spots within the audience itself.
Starting with the candidate introductions, it was obvious there was a stacked deck only against Donald Trump. Supporters of Ted Cruz that still believe the fabricated narrative that somehow he is an outsider, simply have not done much research on the man or his wife. The claps and boos of Saturday’s debate could not have made it more clear for voters listening that whether you love him or despise him, Donald Trump was evidently the only anti-establishment candidate on the debate stage.
But what about the strange, loud, almost exact-sounding applause that was heard by the television viewing audience? In a Still Report by Bill Still (video above) we may have found the answer to that question. Still contends, “Last night’s Republican debate set an absolute new low for the desperate manipulation of the at-home television audience during a political debate.” It turns out that a portion of the claps, nearly identical yells and boos appear to have been computer-generated. Someone with twitter handle, LandmanMarius, tweeted the following:
I’m serious. I used TrueRTA audio spectrum analyzer. Take the CBS recording from YouTube, it truly indicates CPU clapping.
When are the American people going to seriously start holding the media accountable?
