The last 2 or 3 days I've noticed positive stories about Trump from WAPO. They must be smart and have analyzed the polls to see people are tired of the BS

Who owns WAPO?

Maybe they're hedging their bets and switching their loyalties.

SwampMidget 163 points ago +164 / -1

More likely it's an inner struggle amongst the den of thieves; something we're unaware of. Something like: we want assurance we get xyz after we help steal the election, w/out such assurance look at some of these stories you'll face for the last 50 days if you don't bend a knee to our demands.

There’s a shit ton of spygate shit coming down the line. Brennan is one of the main targets. The CIA has multimillion dollar contract with Amazon/WAPo. Connect the dots, some of their people are knowingly involved in the scandal.

It still has to get past who knows how many editors and an exec. editor. A regular "reporter" can't get something through without destroying their career. And editor doesn't have the power to make demands. Someone like Bezos has the money (and pull) to crush any of them that start thinking the got a big dick to swing around.

It may be some sort of power play but it's way above the news staff if it is. It would be with Bezos himself.

bitterbut_true 30 points ago +30 / -0 (edited)

Bezos or even the exec editors wouldn't be bothered with any of the daily content, in terms of vetting each 'big' story.

General content decisions are made at the morning daily editorial meeting in the board room (or editor's suite). Then the actual story, on the night (around 10pm) gets the final go ahead from the Night Editor who's sitting at the main sub editorial desk. These 'big' stories can be planned--or just pop up that afternoon or night--i.e an unknown or surprise 'scoop'. The only time the paper's owner (Bezos) or Editor-in-Chief would get a phone call at home (say 2a.m.) is if Trump had just been assassinated. Otherwise the Night Editor is the big boss. He/she would have chosen which sub-editor gets to write the heading--and if its not good enough write it themselves. The Night Editor then decides where (i.e which page) the story gets featured...buried or a page one splash.

So if anyone got the sack over this it'd be the Night Editor...NOT the reporter.

DocOne 14 points ago +14 / -0

That was a cool response lol (for real, not snarky). You clearly have more knowledge here than I do and I'm always down to learn something.

I'm just saying that I doubt there's any "power struggle" involved when stories like this come out completely at odds with a known rag's agenda. Why do they pop up? Who knows but if things aren't worth getting the bosses out of bed for then there's certainly nobody trying to force a more powerful person's hand.

Controlled opposition. The "far left" or "left" merely pretend to be for workers and against "capitalism", but instead are very much against workers (especially good-hearted workers) and very much pro-slavery. They don't want workers, they want slaves.

Globalists always do this at the end, but I don't expect them to switch en masse yet. When they've exhausted their window to try to influence public opinion, at the last minute they start to move towards reality so that they can claim that they were right all along.

Point out the 2016 polls to anybody, and you get throngs of brianwashed leftist morons telling you how akshually the polls were accurate and 538 predicted it etc. Suuuuuure 538 was right, fucking morons https://i.imgur.com/6Z9QQj3.jpg

muhqtardtho 19 points ago +19 / -0

No. They faked his divorce so they could funnel that amazon cash to BLM woke bull shit via his 'ex wife'. Neon revolt speculated (a long time ago btw) this might be something they try to do since a lot of the dark money was getting shut down after potus got elected. Suddenly all that unaudited foreign aid money isn't helping bad faith actors fund their operations. This is why the DNC had to start using BLM to solicit donations through actblue. They ran out of people to shake down as their power dwindles.

You have to think that when Trump wins re-election, the gloves will really come off. Also I'm sure they have internal numbers that show how dependent they are on election clickbait.

Biden has made a lot of backroom promises that his far left positions are just talk, that his administration will be pro business.

it isnt a "free press", but they are organizations that still have a 1st amendment to speak (or publish) freely. You cant censor them just because what they spout is propaganda. There is no law outlawing propaganda. Anyones opinion can literally be labelled propaganda on some level.

Its up to the viewer/listener to understand what they are consuming. When they watch CNN or read NYT, it is on them to realize they are being voluntarily indoctrinated by marxist propaganda, not news.

Are you familiar with how the "bell curve" works? So, if we assume it is correct for the normal distribution of some sort of measurement of human epistemic, cognitive, and analytical abilities and apply it to the population of the United States, how many will we get in the lower than average category? Something like 120-125 (I'm excluding under-18-year-olds) or so million. That is like 3 Polands or almost the entirety of Russia. And we go halfsies on that, we still get more than one Poland of total morons. That's A LOT of people.

Now, in the age when communication is open to ANYONE equally, what do you think you will hear the most? Not the most productive or even slightly more capable than the average, most likely. And the vast majority of them are the self-proclaimed "liberals".

From the article:

Are there problems on the right — horrible nasties on a par with the violent protesters who have lately inflicted untold damage on many U.S. cities, businesses and lives? You bet. These execrable gun-toting racists have received too much tacit encouragement from Trump.

Oh really? How many cities have those "gun toting racists" burned down? How many billions of dollars in damage have they caused? How many people have they killed? Absolutely NOTHING from "the right" is on par with the BLM/Antifa terrorists.

She can promptly go fuck herself.

After she votes for Trump that is. The last line does not redeem the piece, but at some point I guess we have to accept that every red pill starts somewhere:

Trump, for all his flaws, could be all that stands between our imperfect democracy and the tyranny of the woke left.

This sounds like it was written by some homo journalist who was told to write an opinion piece on “Voting for Trump” so WaPo can keep up appearances.

The Post knows they have to have the appearance of being impartial when in reality they know they are heading further and further left.

The writer tries to throw as many feinted jabs at Trump as he can.

It’s basically another pro-Biden piece aimed a continuing the circle jerk amongst the morons who subscribe to WaPo.

Strange analogy. No, it's just that Bezos will want to defend his empire. His empire won't increase in value if Biden/Kamala wins. AOC uses Amazon as a punching bag, and we already know the Dems are willing to burn everything down. It's a tactical move to get an outside figure to write an editorial so that leaves Bezos with clean hands. I predict Bezos will stay out of the limelight and let these surrogates say things -- he's a guy who prefers to crush a competitor rather than talk about crushing a competitor.

2
The_Real_Jameson 2 points ago +2 / -0

Here's my prediction: All of these companies are simultaneously fucking Americans over, without fear of consequence. The money these companies need to make up for net losses is coming from somewhere. Gates, Soros, Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and China are picking up all the slack necessary for this "revolution." And these companies are so sure of a Trump defeat, and that Trump supporters (Patriots) are soon to be irrelevant, and obsolete, that they don't give a shit about our opinions. Amazon, and Bezos are making money. They benefit either way. But they're still bowing down to BLM, and Globalism.

2
user6395 2 points ago +2 / -0

I agree. In America there are plenty of ways to subvert capitalism, gain unfair advantages, capture regulators, and screw customers and taxpayers. Bezos' priority is his empire and razing his competitors. They don't call him Dread Pirate Bezos for nuthin'.

It's an opinion piece by a Republican establishment Never Trumper. Danielle Pletka works for the American Enterprise Institute which is a Republican think tank.

And I fret that his bizarrely isolationist attitude toward international trade will hurt the U.S. economy and splinter the global trading juggernaut that over the past half-century has brought the world amazing prosperity, lifting hundreds of millions of people out of extreme poverty.

No, global trade has squashed the middle class in Europe, the U.S., probably gave rise to the Mexican Cartels and has been disastrous for the American economy. She's another globalist, NAFTA loving Beech!

Nancy Pelosi knew full well how stupid the impeachment thing was and that it would only hurt the party, but went along with it anyway bc the AOC types demanded it.

Or at best keep him on as a doddering figurehead like Queen Elizabeth to preside over state dinners, wreath placings and orphanage openings (little girl orphanages, not little boy orphanages).

This is only because they realized that they've lost so many democrats.
This is a hook.
The idea is to reconnect with those voters, by trying to appeal to them by "having done the same thing".

Then once people come back, they'll bring out the articles going "I was thinking of going Trump, but [more made up shit] means I just can't and I'm going back to Democrats."

Edit:

I fear that a Congress with Democrats controlling both houses — almost certainly ensured by a Biden victory in November

Lol, they didn't even finish the piece before going there. "Omg, Biden is going to win so hard I'm like, affraid".
Then they go on catering to the left's fetish of destroying America.
