What an odd situation

DickTick 141 points ago +142 / -1

Not really

They are ratings whores, and business has been bad recently lol

Amaroq64 122 points ago +123 / -1

Yeah but, they always put the agenda before business sense.

treos 64 points ago +65 / -1

i thought they put mass human death and suffering before everything else. are they in short supply of such sustenance?

OrangeCatBad 14 points ago +15 / -1

They are, if it leaks how the government agency are being used against the people they are betting on a civil war erupting

They already control the narrative, facts aside. So this will give them more material to craft propaganda around.

Yawnz13 34 points ago +34 / -0

Basically. They see this as an opportunity to take more shit out of context.

This will be another Mueller investigation. They'll probably appoint some special prosecutor, give them carte blanche to prosecute any discovered crime, and the MSM will tout that as evidence that the original narrative of the investigation was true.

AmazinKrackin2 8 points ago +8 / -0

I think you are right. Expand it even more so they can drag it out longer and have multiple lawsuits going at the same time and keep Bannon (Trump/January 6th) going. It makes MSM look good siding with the enemy but in the end it is rigged and all they want is to control the narrative as long as possible. They want to get Bannon tied up in lawsuits so he is knocked out of the public eye and drain his accounts.

It is all a ruse. The DOJ and FBI work together along with the judges and they will keep this going as long as they can. MSM doesn't want anything out of this case because they know what they have already done. It might give a bump to rating but profit and ratings are no longer important it is power. The DNC will offset any losses and MSM is there to serve the Democrat Party.

RuprechtThaMonkeyBoy 3 points ago +4 / -1

The media makes ball bearings (advertising), they don't care who uses them, what side they're on, or if the cause is good or evil, they just want to know how many ball bearings you want.

Old media, new media, it's all the same if you're slinging product for eyeballs. Google built their empire on AdWords. (And "VC" money)

AmazinKrackin2 4 points ago +4 / -0

Old Boss same as the old boss. I like the bearings comparison. Unless something is done about the media and ownership of it our country will always be divided. New media is a positive thing but it relies on the internet and we are becoming more like Chyna and their ability to slow down the internet to twart communication and movement. Dangerous times.

Yawnz13 1 point ago +2 / -1

Power was always the game, ratings and money simply served as vehicles to power. MSM definitely want something out of this case, but only if they can use it to attack their opponents.

It's like the Mueller Report. The report itself states like 16 different times that no evidence was found that any American colluded with Russia. Your average libshit will completely ignore that and continue citing the arrests made, while also ignoring that Mueller had authority to charge any uncovered crime regardless of how relevant it was to the topic of the case. They will, for the most part anyway, continue to ignore it because the MSM chooses to ignore it.

FreeOrDieNH 12 points ago +12 / -0

It will also give them a heads uo about stuff they need go repress

SR91Aurora 6 points ago +6 / -0

They probably still are, we just haven't pieced it together yet.

LatitudeofMind 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah they don’t care about ratings

resoluteAction 2 points ago +2 / -0

They can screen the docs and selectively edit what they want to distro. At that point it's a matter of who has the better megaphone. I'd bet on Bannon, they underestimate him.

925TheJOY 16 points ago +17 / -1

Nah, the media is Deep state and Deep state is DOJ. There is so much fuckery afoot its not even funny

XlDEN 11 points ago +12 / -1

If it were really about ratings they would be covering the Maxwell trial, for starters.

Imransgarage 2 points ago +2 / -0

Exactly. Imagine still thinking it's ratings > agenda.

OwnaLib87 7 points ago +8 / -1

If they were rating whores they’re ratings wouldn’t be in the toilet. The are state propaganda first and foremost.

StoryTimeHour 4 points ago +4 / -0

grenades_and_ham 6 points ago +6 / -0

News Propaganda.

925TheJOY 20 points ago +21 / -1

No, it means I can't trust this now. Its all part of the show.

pppeeo 6 points ago +6 / -0

Is this the intent? Maybe a combination of them expecting the files to be incriminating/ easy to exploit and shake confidence in an otherwise trusted figure?

Just enjoy the show for now

Final212 1 point ago +1 / -0

These guys just want to see the information. It's nothing nefarious. They all just want the scoop.

Imransgarage 4 points ago +4 / -0

Ha does sort of feel that way, doesn’t it.

925TheJOY 5 points ago +5 / -0

Ya, I've been cheering for full truth for years...but, the other side of me is like...careful what u wish for. Maybe we don't want to know that the earth is flat and there are hateful beings living on the other side of the ice wall. Or something. I don't know what to expect anymore

Nancys_drooping_eye 7 points ago +7 / -0

I've thought about it too. If the world's elite have made contact with a galactic federation that earth can't be a part of until exponential population growth is curtailed then my position remains the same. That federation is also the type of authoritarian government that I would fight to the death. If that federation is threatening to destroy us if we don't comply and the elite are hiding that from us so we don't revolt they are also just as guilty. It's moot now because even if the propaganda machine came out and admitted this to be the case I would think it's a psyop at this point.

Nancys_drooping_eye 5 points ago +5 / -0

Exactly. Im also reminded of the Dr. Who episode "The Sontaran Strategem" where a technocrat billionaire created eco friendly cars with the help of aliens to stop global warming who then proceed to take control of all of the cars to kill everyone with noxious fumes. In the end the technocrat billionaire finds out that the aliens were lying about making the earth better and just wanted to eradicate everyone without a fight. But that could never happen right?

War_Hamster 5 points ago +5 / -0

There was an SG-1 episode with a very similar plot. The aliens gave us advanced technology while eradicating humanity over 200 years by making us infertile.


UnusualPepe 2 points ago +2 / -0

exactly! when CNN, ABC on your side and someone as sketchy as bannon too then you know you just don't bother

FudgyFudgeBots 115 points ago +115 / -0

Do they just want to be the first to get the info so they can spin it before the masses are able to form their own opinions?

Whatever the case, you can bet they're up to no good.

newchina 43 points ago +43 / -0

First right answer right here. They have realized its inevitable, so they want copies first and will try and spin the shit out of it, just like everything else.

No they wouldn't do this unless they were fucking ratings whores and simply couldn't help themselves

you're both right.

QLARP 0 points ago +4 / -4

Only the second claim is supported by reality.

lurkwellmyfriends 4 points ago +4 / -0

If the second claim was reality then the whores would still have 24/7 coverage of Waukesha.

Either they serve their masters or the ideology comes before ratings.

QLARP 0 points ago +1 / -1

The Waukesha is going to prison for life there is no, "justice for _____" narrative

Herecomedatpresident 1 point ago +1 / -0

I'm not disagreeing but how does filing something to prevent information coming out harm their ratings?

QLARP 0 points ago +1 / -1

They want to have the info released because they like making money as much as possible.

If they only wanted to form deepnstate narratives they would run stories saying why not releasing the info is good for democracy

Herecomedatpresident 1 point ago +1 / -0

Right I actually misread the title and get it now.

UsernameChexOut 18 points ago +18 / -0

Yup. We live in the world where the media spins a racially motivated terrorist attack on white people as "SUV running over a parade". It's basically a world where there is nothing that they can't/won't spin. As long as it's some news, they will spin it as something anti Trump and the retards will eat it up. So they don't even have to believe that it's going to be damaging to Trump/helpful to them. That's shit of 10 years ago. This just has to be something, anything at all. It can be what Bannon ordered for lunch, and they will say that that's a sign of white supremacy and insurrection. Clown world no longer when describes the shithole that we live in today.

BeefSupreme29 8 points ago +8 / -0

They're going to allow the 1000s of files to be shared, only report on a disingenuous interpretation of a few, tell everyone it's illegal to look for yourself and it's different for the media, and trust in the fact that anyone still listening to them is happy to remain programmed.

freeamerica4ever 4 points ago +4 / -0

Agreed. Look at them pull out all the big guns for Bannon: CNN, NYT, Washington Post. Looks like a real David and Goliath situation. Go Bannon!

trumpsbluetie 3 points ago +3 / -0

Lower 7 points ago +7 / -0

They wouldn't do this if they weren't instructed by their handlers to do this.

trumpsbluetie 2 points ago +2 / -0

The damning faux circumstantial evidence is what the MSM wants to show. The exculpatory evidence is "muh national security classified," which is why the Feds are fighting the release of it. The MSM have been instructed to parade about the fruit of the poison tree, so as to distract from the tree itself.

SquiggyMcPepe 33 points ago +35 / -2

The ghislane maxwell trial is about to start collecting elitist heads along with a bunch of other stuff like election audit results and other lawsuits. Mainly its because enough of the public has turned on them at last. I always knew that the media would pivot eventually once it was apparent their political and big tech masters started to fall. Keep an eye on jack dorsey I think he is going to try to run for a non extradition treaty country. Plus watch that interview of fauci when he is asked about him getting prosecuted. He totally flips out and you can do the body language routine to see how his eyes and mouth and mannerisms don't match the forced laughter. Something broke in the background after durham started releasing info and maxwell finally went to trial. We may be about to witness a sea change in the elites power structures.

aaafirefly123 2 points ago +2 / -0

It matters because lying, propaganda, and censoring can only go so far before tyrants have to take off the mask of civility and begin the phase of open oppression of the masses.

They're going to have to throw some heads to the rabble just to keep the public happy. No matter what Joy Behar says on the view the vast majority of Americans see pedophiles as evil. If it ever becomes obvious to the normies just how systemic this is in the Democrat Party that's going to be a PR problem they can never undo.

Job one for us to make that happen

Frequent92 -5 points ago +7 / -12

Reading this is hilarious because its always the same 'Its happening" shit. Nothing is going to happen.

SquiggyMcPepe 10 points ago +11 / -1

Yet stuff is happening all over the place? Is it because the main players are still free like hillary? Well get used to the idea that she most likely will never face a trial. But many below her are already being rounded up and they are the ones that get the stuff done anyways. In organized crime cases you always work from the bottom up and dismantle their operations that way. The boss can't do shit if their underlings are gone after all.

"NoThiNg iS gOiNg tO hApPeN" says the doomer as things are happening everywhere. "There are none so blind as those with eyes who do not see".

Perhaps if the " nOtHiNg iS gOiNg tO hApPeN " word spell is said and spread enough, the Goebbels fairy will make it come true. Or perhaps consider casting different word spells.

trumpsbluetie 2 points ago +2 / -0

Nothing happens until the shooting starts. Everything before that is just people getting ready for the shooting to start.

SirPremierViceroy 12 points ago +12 / -0

Simple: they make a lot of money reporting on people like Bannon, so they don't appreciate being told what not to report. They are used to being gatekeepers, not used to being gatekept.

SquiggyMcPepe 6 points ago +6 / -0

Leaks normally take care of that though. So why are the leaks drying up?

Dereliction 5 points ago +5 / -0

Because there are only two possible leak sources -- the DOJ and Bannon. Leaks from the DOJ could get the case thrown out and leaks from Bannon would be highly selective to his interest.

WarpedSage 7 points ago +7 / -0

I would say it's just a case of strange bedfellows. News needs ratings and they can't talk about their team, so they need stuff dealing with the opposition team. Bannon thinks what is there will vindicate him and create outrage against the DOJ.

The truth is probably the same as every Trump Era witch hunt. Sensationalism, both teams running to their corners. Red team thinks the truth matters more than it does. Blue team will say endless lies and some of it will stick with different people. They will fight each other to a stalemate and nothing will ever get resolved, until it's buried.

Cozette 0 points ago +1 / -1

For your prophesies of doom, what do you use? A time machine? Crystal ball? 😘

NonyaDB 21 points ago +21 / -0

Bannon's doing this to head off any "DOJ leaks" to the press.
If he dumps the entire thing out there to them then there's no way DOJ can selectively leak just highly-edited bad shit to the press to make him look bad.
I find it laughable that the DOJ is arguing he's trying the case in the media and taint the jury pool when that's what the DOJ does on a goddamn daily basis.

They have to. They had the big meeting and couldn't find any defendable excuse for why a "democracy dies in darkness" media company would support keeping the information from the public. Especially when you'd have Washington Times and the like demanding it be made public.
