FM may mean media to you, but it also means False Memory. And yes, contrary to it’s own advertising: Under a decadent capitalism, all it does is destroy, and we are supposed to forget and only recall the US as the great white father of democracy, which strangely rhymes with mediocrity.
Anyone recall the threat by the new US President Biden’s new deputy press secretary to a White House reporter: “I will destroy you!”? The poor fella, Tennessean TJ Ducklo, had to resign. And that was that. His crime? Stating out loud what the capitalist media is all about.
If you don’t remember, it was only a few weeks ago, that’s cool. Some factoids do not get saturated repetitive coverage, and are written for amnesia.
No ‘free’ media freely explored how exactly a “Press Secretary”, and a deputy at that, wields such power. Let alone how the US government makes or destroys reporters. And what weapons of mass media destruction a White House Press Secretary’s deputy wields.
Ducklo was threatening to ‘destroy’ a reporter who exposed his carnal relationship with another reporter who covered the White House. Not kosher, or halal, we’re told. If the media is the handmaiden of democracy, they claim the democrat shouldn’t be caught red-handed sleeping with the handmaiden. A conflict of interest or at worst, the best of incest.
It’s not that he was a novice or virgin. Ducklo had been a staff assistant to James Carville (lead strategist for the Democratic Party’s Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign) and for Carville’s spouse Mary Matalin (campaign director for the Republican Party’s George H. W. Bush). Howzaat for playing all spouses, offices and orifices? Then again, it’s actually all of one side. The USA is a one-party state – ruled by the Capitalist Party – with two expensive wings.
Ducklo held ‘senior media relations posts’ at Bloomberg News, Viacom, and the Motion Picture Association of America, and was senior communications director for General Electric’s NBC News before joining ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden. NBC? Hmmm!
When you are talking Media USA – NBC’s paws and more generally, General Electric’s claws are found everywhere. General Electric controlled Hollywood. How? Very simple. Though the control of electricity and sound equipment. JP Morgan, that most powerful of financiers in the USA owned GE. In fact, Edison the inventor was an invention of Morgan. Morgan also owns Sri Lanka’s sovereign bonds too. And Morgan owns the media.
So go figure, when all the white media whistles Dixie about how undemocratic our government is and how despotic our President is. Gotabhaya Rajapakse finished one war. Obama-Biden were at war from beginning to end, and he’s about to escalate destruction in Syria, Afghanistan and Myanmar!
In that bastion of democracy, the US President gets to destroy media personnel it doesn’t like. Here private monopoly media sets out to destroy and undermine a president with a hugely popular mandate. And they call it democracy, while claiming it is he who wishes to destroy them!
Let’s divert from mass destruction and get back to Ducklo. So what if Ducklo became a deputy Press Secretary and was sleeping with NBC reporter Alexi McCammond? Probably saved the White House a lot of money having to buy good news coverage. The reporter didn’t even have to come to work. They were both WFH – working the fuck at home. Or FWH – Fucking the Work at Home.
Then again, a US president needs to have the right questions asked at a press conference, for which they can have some off-the-cuff ready-to-go soundbytes, which will make him sound on-the-ball, when he appears to be tripping over himself.
So while Ducklo slept in, she had to get up all bright and curly to be there early. And there’s nothing like having an attractive young female African American reporter ask smart questions of an almost dead white male President who has to at least appear to sound hip and hop. And speaking of dead, if Biden takes one more wrong step, Kamala de too-kool Koolie, may end up President.
Now does General Electric own NBC, as stated above. They certainly set NBC up. But trying to ascertain NBC’s ownership sends one on a merry-go-round of media conglomerates from Vivendi to Comcast, the second-largest broadcasting and cable television company. In the world. The biggest media glob is AT&T. Does it matter?
They say even if their god created the world, Morgan, Rockfeller and Ford reinvented it in 1920. By the way, notice there’s a Rockfeller Foundation, whose oil interests shape the corporate vision of ecology. There’s a Ford Foundation, very interested in ‘ethnic studies’ etc. But there’s little we know of any Morgan Foundation ….
The media is a mess of some heavy incest. FM may mean free media to you, but it also means False Memory. And yes, contrary to it’s own advertising: Under a decadent capitalism, all it does is destroy, and we are supposed to forget and only recall the US as the great white father of democracy, which strangely rhymes with mediocrity.
