Trump’s Total Lack of Fitness Doesn’t Stop the Washington Post From Pumping His Fascist Muscles

American voters suffer every day from the disconnect between the reality of Trump—his incoherence, his racism, his rape, his fraud, his lies, his deadly coup attempt, his plans for a fascist dictatorship—and the sanitized, near reverent image of him presented by the executives, editors, and reporters within our mainstream media... the executives at the Washington Post chose a headline that completely whitewashes the dystopian, dictatorial plans of Project 2025. - Media And Democracy Project

Why do billionaire owned media outlets ignore threats to American democracy? Overlook Trump's fascist threat to be a dictator on day one? Who's willing to sell out your freedoms for their profits? Follow the money with this interactive map for answers.

Anger mounts at Washington Post over leadership changes and CEO’s record

"Will Lewis’s appointment of his ex-Telegraph lieutenant Robert Winnett sparks fears journalism will be diminished. Questions have been raised in the American media about his own conduct, past and present, including accusations this week that he sought to kill negative stories about him.

As a pivotal US election looms, those anxieties are now blending with worry about whether something like what happened at the Daily Telegraph could be in store for the Post. A trusted paper once considered on the centre-right of politics, the Telegraph has tacked ever further to the fringes in recent years, embracing populist-leaning leaders and their ideas. These changes occurred after the departure of Lewis, but while Winnett was in a key role.

Lewis was hired by Rupert Murdoch as Group General Manager of News Group Newspapers (NGN) in 2010 – and one of his key roles was managing the fallout from the phone-hacking scandal. This erupted when it emerged Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid had intercepted the voicemails of politicians, celebrities and members of the royal family. NGN is currently being sued in the civil courts by Prince Harry and others over allegations of unlawful information-gathering – and legal documents that form part of the case reference Lewis." - The Guardian

Positive press coverage for cash

"It’s truly unconscionable that our most trusted, most widely read legacy journalism institutions would fail to meet the moment when Christo-fascism is knocking at our door. It is not, sadly, a surprise. 

Billionaires own our mainstream media. They hire executives who are willing to carry out their agendas and feed the public narratives that serve their interests. As Sam Sutton reported in Politico about Wall Street sentiment this week, America’s one percent cares less about democracy than it cares about profits: “Kathy Wylde, president and CEO of the Partnership for New York City, a nonprofit organization that represents the city’s top business leaders, said Republicans have told her that ‘the threat to capitalism from the Democrats is more concerning than the threat to democracy from Trump.’”

It is up to all of us to apply pressure on our newsrooms, to push against the amorality that has captured our for-profit information ecosystem. The journalism executives doing the bidding of owners must be made to realize that they work in service to the public, otherwise they are nothing more than PR shops for the wealthy." - Media And Democracy Project
