Carl Bernstein Calls Trump Aide
Kellyanne Conway a ‘Propaganda Minister’

Breitbart Video, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/12/2017 7:11:48 AM

(Video) Wednesday on CNN’s “AC 360,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein discussed the relationship between President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, and the press. Bernstein weighed in on the latest chapter in this relationship involving an unsubstantiated dossier being reported by BuzzFeed and CNN and suggested it was reporting “the best obtainable version of the truth.” However, he also mentioned Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, who was a guest on the show earlier and described her to be a “propaganda minister” because she has acted as an anonymous source in her dealings with the press. “Let’s talk about what reporting is,”

Those who serve to remind Americans of their precious Liberties and promote Limited Constitutional Government have no need for and no use for Propaganda (Deceptive Promotion).

Therefore ´Propaganda Minister´ is a lie and a smear of the worst kind.

....and a classic case of "Projection".

CB was lucky many decades ago and turned it into a career. Irrational hatred of Nixon allowed CB to be seen as demi-god.

FTA: (Buzzfeed) was reporting “the best obtainable version of the truth.”
Oh, I see, Carl. So you think the TRUTH is defined and determined BEFORE or without any substantiating data?
So if I have this correct, journalists should FIRST determine the truth, and then try as hard as they can to get corroborating evidence. But if they can´t do that, after rabid dog-like teams of veteran journalists searching for MONTHS on end come up empty-handed----well, then it´s OK to report "the best obtainable version of the truth."
Caught, Carl! You just exposed that the AGENDA precedes the facts.

Technically speaking he´s correct.

Ever government has a spokesperson or department that disseminates information that sheds the best light on the administration for whom it works.

It is up to the journalist (if there are any) to see whether the information is true or not and the people, who are the ultimate target audience, to decide for themselves the ultimate truth.

Here´s what Bernstein told the Journalism Education Center in 2000 about Watergate coverage:

Bernstein said there were many lessons that could be learned from Watergate.

“The lessons have to do with being careful, with using multiple sources, to putting information in context, to not being swayed by gossip, by sensationalism, by manufactured controversy, all of which have come to dominate our journalistic agenda in the past 30 years. The real thing is about responsibility.”

And now that´s become “the best obtainable VERSION of the truth.” (Emphasis added.)

We´ve seen two more "Known Wolf" terror attacks in the West, and yet Western government authorities seem unwilling to acknowledge, let alone begin to address, the "Known Wolf" terror problem. I first identified the "Known Wolf" terror trend and coined the term in October 2014 here at PJ Media, noting that many, possibly most, Islamic terrorists who actually committed terrorism in the West were already known to Western law enforcement, national security agencies, and intelligence services. Yet sufficient action was not taken to prevent them from conducting terror attacks: (Tweet) Since then, I´ve chronicled (in nearly two dozen articles) the

President Trump on Thursday reacted to the news that a Utah man was killed in Wednesday´s terrorist attack outside Parliament, saying: "A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack."

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

The Washington Post´s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump´s transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials. The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain

According to Politico, even though there are Democrats standing firm against Gorsuch because of how Merrick Garland was treated, there are some attempting to get concessions as part of a deal: The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
