In the age of Donald Trump, the mainstream media has been exposed. In the heat of the moment, they proved that all their talk about objectivity and love of Democracy was a hollow fraud.
Now, with as Trump is President, they are doubling-down on being propaganda organs for the deep state. This is shown by the number of former Obama-era officials that have been picked up by cable news entities to produce propaganda to sabotage Trump and his ‘America First’ agenda.
The latest spook turned talking head is John Brennan, former CIA director under Obama. He has joined MSNBC as a senior national security and intelligence analyst, according to an Axios report. He will provide support to other deep state operatives on cable news networks such as former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who work on CNN.
Jack Shafer for Politico Magazine compiled a list of other former prominent federal government officials who also made the seamless transition into the corporate media:
Other, lesser-known national security veterans thrive under TV’s grow lights. Almost too numerous to list, they include Chuck Rosenberg, former acting DEA administrator, chief of staff for FBI Director James B. Comey, and counselor to former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III; Frank Figliuzzi, former chief of FBI counterintelligence; Juan Zarate, deputy national security adviser under Bush, at NBC; and Fran Townsend, homeland security adviser under Bush, at CBS News. CNN’s bulging roster also includes former FBI agent Asha Rangappa; former FBI agent James Gagliano; Obama’s former deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken; former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers; senior adviser to the National Security Council during the Obama administration Samantha Vinograd; retired CIA operations officer Steven L. Hall; and Philip Mudd, also retired from the CIA.
And CNN is still adding to its bench. Last Saturday, former Comey aide Josh Campbell wrote a New York Times op-ed on why he was leaving the FBI on principle. By Monday, the network was announcing his new position as a “law enforcement analyst.”
Because of Trump, it is more obvious that the corporate media is in the tank for the deep state than ever before.
