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.)

Did Brennan Collude with
Foreign Spies to Help Hillary?

John Brennan defended his thesis that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win before the House Intelligence Committee. He did nothing to disabuse Congressional Democrats or the mainstream media of the notion that Team Trump colluded with Moscow to change the results of the 2016 election. Brennan didn’t explain why he thought that the Russians didn’t want Hillary Clinton to win. Perhaps he could explain why they didn’t prefer Hillary, who was Secretary of State when President Obama let Russia violate the INF Missile Treaty and colluded with the Russians to kill missile defense in Europe,

Pro-lifers say declining patient numbers, the promotion of abortion at the expense of health care services and the shuttering of several facilities show that Planned Parenthood’s business model is failing and its taxpayer funding could be better spent elsewhere. The nation’s largest abortion provider announced last week that it would close four clinics in Iowa, three in New Mexico, two in Colorado and its last remaining facility in Wyoming, despite continuing to receive more than $500 million in annual taxpayer funding. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said Planned Parenthood’s “enterprise is crumbling, even while they

President Trump will hold a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa next week, his campaign committee announced on Wednesday. The rally will take place on Thursday, June 1 and follows Trump’s first visit abroad as president. The president returns to the U.S. on Sunday. Trump last held a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Pa. on April 29, the same night as the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C. Trump broke with long-standing political tradition by not attending the yearly dinner. "They would love to be with us right here tonight," Trump said of the press that night, adding his

In the post “Trump agonistes” last week I noted what I saw in the news stories that have created the consuming controversies of the past few weeks: hostile officials inside the executive branch of the government seeking the removal of Donald Trump from office. They are powerful. They lack any qualms about abusing their positions. They are determined. And they have the invaluable assistance of the Democrats’ mainstream media adjunct. With malicious intent, “current officials” inside the intelligence agencies with access to top secret information, for example, have passed it on under the cloak of anonymity to their friends in

The new president, elected on May 7, also wants legislation to boost the powers of the security forces, Edouard Philippe said, two days after the Manchester concert suicide bombing that claimed 22 lives. “France and the United Kingdom are fighting the same enemy,” Philippe said after a meeting of his defence council. “The terrorist threat remains, in Europe, in our two countries, at a very high level.”

Sen.

The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

Talk to anyone who has tried to run a business and ask them how hard it is. I can speak from experience when I tell you that it isn´t easy. Long hours, sleepless nights, and concerns you never even thought about as an employee are the norm. Add in the fact that you get paid last, which can mean some very lean times, and the challenges of owning a business become rather obvious. Now, you may also have to consider the idea that Social Justice Warriors think you have the wrong DNA for your line of work, because they´re horrible.

Under internal pressure over his pursuit of the truth behind the Seth Rich story, network suits are apparently closing in on one of the network’s remaining conservative holdouts.

Just 40 percent of taxpayers who called to make payment arrangements were able to get through in the most recent tax filing season — and those that did manage to connect had to wait on average more than 45 minutes, said Ms. Olson, whose Office of the Taxpayer Advocate essentially functions as the public’s “voice” at the federal tax-collection agency.
