This narrative sounds scary and nefarious (possibly deep state?), describe it for me.

I don't know how it works. I just notice certain themes spread like wildfire among MSM left leaning outlets. Almost coordinated.

"Michael Cieply, who left The New York Times this summer after 12 years as a reporter and editor there, reflects on why the newspaper got the Trump story so wrong:

For starters, it’s important to accept that the New York Times has always — or at least for many decades — been a far more editor-driven, and self-conscious, publication than many of those with which it competes. Historically, the Los Angeles Times, where I worked twice, for instance, was a reporter-driven, bottom-up newspaper. Most editors wanted to know, every day, before the first morning meeting: “What are you hearing? What have you got?”

It was a shock on arriving at the New York Times in 2004, as the paper’s movie editor, to realize that its editorial dynamic was essentially the reverse. By and large, talented reporters scrambled to match stories with what internally was often called “the narrative.” We were occasionally asked to map a narrative for our various beats a year in advance, square the plan with editors, then generate stories that fit the pre-designated line.

Reality usually had a way of intervening. But I knew one senior reporter who would play solitaire on his computer in the mornings, waiting for his editors to come through with marching orders. Once, in the Los Angeles bureau, I listened to a visiting National staff reporter tell a contact, more or less: “My editor needs someone to say such-and-such, could you say that?”

The bigger shock came on being told, at least twice, by Times editors who were describing the paper’s daily Page One meeting: “We set the agenda for the country in that room.”

You do you, man. You might want to finish “Rothbard for Retards” first.

I've finished about 5 Rothbard books. They are hard work to get thru. I don't think they are possible to distill down to your reading level.

What does this have to do with the existence of QAnon? The links I’ve posted go back to last summer. Swing and a miss, little guy.

LOL, that says a lot more about you than it does about Rothbard. Are you 13?

You asked me how liberal outlets get marching orders. Or were you not interested in how that works? Color me a little surprised that the Trump Russia narrative blows up, and a day later a new poster to me suddenly starts a Trump thread about QAnon with 30 separate posts and a bunch of links on the topic. I didn't open them all.

When Mr. Soros signs my checks, I do what I’m told.

Hey Minnesota
I bought the qanon book on kindle. Read 5 pages and returned it. Easily the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. Worse than a typical Howie post.

The most clueless thread ever. i wonder who Minnesota really is. I'm sure we all have our suspicions. Q is encoded way beyond 99% who follow. Be afraid lefties. Be very afraid. The Qers gonna get you!

Collusion with a foreign power to steal an election was your theory. Ooops.

Uh, dude, Russia did help DJT win, period. He would not have won without them. Did he criminally conspire with them to do so? Apparently not. They still helped him win though.

99.9%? Stop lying. Many of your fellow Trumpsters know who Q is. Many of the fellas marinate in the stuff all day. Many of the rest of us know who Q is because we have to listen to their ramblings about whether Hillary and Obama will avoid the death penalty and only get life in prison, etc.

A significant portion of the RWers in here are QAnon regulars, spouting off the most ridiculous tripe on this board. But yeah, KGF acts like he has no clue, even though he repeats enough of their nonsense.

Give me a few examples. I’d love to hear more fairytales.

I’ve been accused of being a Fox News fan. Guilty.

But Q? The only Q that I was a fan of is the former coach of my Blackhawks.

Fox News has plenty who delve in the abyss of the RW Talk Radio universe, which obviously shares plenty of informational and political extremist-RW ties with QAnon.

Alex Jones and Q are so much better than the New York Times.

We didn't say you were "fan". But you're playing ignorance of him and the BS that he spouts is pathetic. All you have to do is read CRG's posts, which we know you do.

So accepting some help from a hostile foreign power is OK, as long as it's not too much?

No amount of treason is too much for KGF if his team wins. Go team!

The concept of collusion seems like a tough one for you.

How so? The Trump campaign and people tied to the campaign clearly colluded with entities and intermediaries tied to the Russian hackers. Just because they were either too stupid to know or too immoral and unethical to care doesn't mean they didn't collude with those entities, it just means that they did not criminally collude with a foreign adversary. I don't think that's a particularly difficult concept. What part of that are you struggling to understand?

That's not collusion brainiac. What you're arguing is that Russia helped Trump win. I find that claim highly dubious, but it's missing a critical element to be collusion anyway.

Well if he does, he gets everything right. He is always proven correct in the end and you have Mika and Rachael. Wrong... wrong... and wrong again. Should have gotten pretty embarrassing by now. But if you had any shame you would have left the D Party by now.

Who ever said I was part of the D party?
