#muellermaddness What Would Trump Have paid to put the MSM/Hollywood/Left in this Light?

Think of where we’re been for decades.

For as long as I can remem­ber News­pa­pers and Tele­vi­sion and have been about elect­ing Democ­rats. When Cable News became a thing it was the same and when inter­net jour­nal­ism became a thing it did as well.

To be sure there was the occa­sional excep­tion and one could make a liv­ing as the one con­ser­v­a­tive on a panel of five but until the rise of talk radio (Rush Lim­baugh), Cit­i­zen Jour­nal­ism (Drudge and Bre­it­bart) and blogs (Instapun­dit and his blogchil­dren) the left has been able to deliver its mes­sage unen­cum­bered to the pub­lic and even now their is lit­tle to dis­rupt their mes­sage par­tic­u­larly since for the last 50 years our cul­tural insti­tu­tions have joined in this quest of theirs.

This has been an alba­tross around the next of con­ser­v­a­tives run­ning for office for decades. Some­thing to be dodged, or cir­cum­vented or endured but never some­thing to be defeated.

Now con­sider the sit­u­a­tion post Mueller using the words of one anti-​trump reporter

Early on, I was so amazed by the sheer quan­tity of Rus­sia “bomb­shells” being walked back, I started to keep a list. It’s well above 50 sto­ries now. As has been noted by Glenn Green­wald of the Inter­cept and oth­ers, if the mis­takes were ran­dom, you’d expect them in both direc­tions, but Rus­si­a­gate errors uni­formly go the same way.

That’s Matt Taibbi who though a rabid left­ist is bright enough to see this for what Brit Hume called it

the worst jour­nal­is­tic deba­cle of my lifetime,

more impor­tantly Taibbi knows where this had led:

Noth­ing Trump is accused of from now on by the press will be believed by huge chunks of the pop­u­la­tion, a group that (per­haps thanks to this story) is now larger than his orig­i­nal base.

So to put it another way, the Left’s media and cul­tural appa­ra­tus has been com­pletely neu­tral­ized in its abil­ity to sell their nar­ra­tive to any­one who doesn’t already believe it and when you real­ize this ask your­self this ques­tion pre­tend­ing for a moment that you were in charge of advanc­ing the con­ser­v­a­tive cause in America

How many mil­lions off dol­lars and how many thou­sands of man hours would you have been will­ing to ded­i­cate to put the media and cul­tural left in a posi­tion they have put them­selves in for free?

The Mueller inves­ti­ga­tion has done this and it’s a won­drous thing to behold.

Think of where we’re been for decades.

For as long as I can remember Newspapers and Television and have been about electing Democrats. When Cable News became a thing it was the same and when internet journalism became a thing it did as well.

To be sure there was the occasional exception and one could make a living as the one conservative on a panel of five but until the rise of talk radio (Rush Limbaugh), Citizen Journalism (Drudge and Breitbart) and blogs (Instapundit and his blogchildren) the left has been able to deliver its message unencumbered to the public and even now their is little to disrupt their message particularly since for the last 50 years our cultural institutions have joined in this quest of theirs.

This has been an albatross around the next of conservatives running for office for decades. Something to be dodged, or circumvented or endured but never something to be defeated.

Now consider the situation post Mueller using the words of one anti-trump reporter

Early on, I was so amazed by the sheer quantity of Russia “bombshells” being walked back, I started to keep a list. It’s well above 50 stories now. As has been noted by Glenn Greenwald of the Intercept and others, if the mistakes were random, you’d expect them in both directions, but Russiagate errors uniformly go the same way.

That’s Matt Taibbi who though a rabid leftist is bright enough to see this for what Brit Hume called it

the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime,

more importantly Taibbi knows where this had led:

Nothing Trump is accused of from now on by the press will be believed by huge chunks of the population, a group that (perhaps thanks to this story) is now larger than his original base. 

So to put it another way, the Left’s media and cultural apparatus has been completely neutralized in its ability to sell their narrative to anyone who doesn’t already believe it and when you realize this ask yourself this question pretending for a moment that you were in charge of advancing the conservative cause in America

How many millions off dollars and how many thousands of man hours would you have been willing to dedicate to put the media and cultural left in a position they have put themselves in for free?

The Mueller investigation has done this and it’s a wondrous thing to behold.
