Diary of Trump’s visit to London: My experience with media bias

Catherine BlaiklockGuest Post

Here we go again. The same old lot of demonstrators are out again. The same people who talk endlessly about democracy and the will of the people and community representation are out demonstrating against democracy and the will of the people.

For a weekend, they have finished demonstrating against Brexit and now are starting on Trump. The BBC and the mainstream media are only too happy to help them in their efforts.

Take a look at this ITV program, entitled, "Trump and Britain: Love or Loathing?"

It would be interesting to analyse what percentage of the program was designated to love and what percentage was loathing. My cursory glance was about 85 per cent to 90 per cent of it was devoted to the loathing, and not a lot to the loving — as always another fantastic example of biased, liberal, globalist, moral signalling broadcasting.

When Nigel Farage only gets a minute and they had to drag out Germaine Greer as a Trump supporter, you know there is a problem.

I was kindly asked by Robert Oulds at the cross party, Brexit supporting Bruge Group, to join him, to speak in favour of Trump’s visit for this ITV program.

I travelled down to London and was somewhat surprised to find we were filming in the middle of an empty restaurant. I spent six hours travelling there and back and spent one-and-a-half hours filming for ITV with a full camera team.

I know from the discussion, there was some excellent footage, but they gave 30 seconds each to Robert and Dr Niall McCree, and all that was shown of me was a side view of me sitting there, saying something but with no sound. What a complete waste of time but worse, how biased can they get.

It was only later that I realised the significance of the empty restaurant:

It makes the Trump supporters look common, like drunks, and not very sophisticated people, which is exactly what the mainstream media and the liberal elite think of both Trump supporters and Brexit supporters.

Like Brexit, Trump voters knew exactly what they were voting for and Trump democratically won the presidency of the United States. Like Brexit, as I mention here on a live BBC radio program, Trump supporters are more likely to be poorer, rural and not have college degrees.

That does not make these voters stupid; indeed you could argue that they live in the real world of jobs, kids and problems.

It is the same with the anti-Trump demonstrators. Most of these people are from London, most have university degrees and most voted remain. These people will never have been to the rust-belts of Pennsylvania and seen the devastated industry caused by Clinton and Obama’s globalisation policies.

“That does not make these voters stupid; indeed you could argue that they live in the real world of jobs, kids and problems.”

I wouldn’t go so far into superlatives, but “less intelligent” would be an apt description – for obvious reasons. If you have 50 smart people and 50 dumb people, and 30 of those people go to University, those 30 will almost entirely be “smart”, leaving the uneducated pool depleted for intelligence (educated: 30 smart, 100% smart. Uneducated, 20 smart, 50 dumb, 30% smart. Overall, 50% smart).

Do educated people not live in the “real world”? Reality isn’t defined by economic status or having ’problems", most of which are arguably self-inflicted by e.g. not being educated.

The problem arises when they seek external salvation from self-inflicted problems. Trump isn’t going to save you from being replaced by a robot. You have to address that on your own.

Stephen Harper also commented on his disappointment on the CPC’s MPs reluctance to close down or privatize the CBC, although many, if not most Conservative supporters are in favour of getting rid of this parasitic, left wing, taxpayer funded organization. When the CPC regains government, we need to contact our MPs, making sure they know that their view of the CBC is not what we want.
CBC supporters are more likely to be leftists, anyway, and less likely to be CPC voters. Privatize early in their term, get it over with quickly. Retain its serviced for remote regions, if necessary. A private owner would soon make it an efficient organization, retaining popular programming. And who knows, maybe honest journalism.

Keith Barnes, I give her to September, as the British move slowly on many subjects. Look at BREXIT, its been over 2 years and they are still asking, “WHAT DOES BREXIT ENTAIL ?”

Liza Rosie, Jacob Rees-Mogg is a favorite for PM, He or Boris Johnston will likely take over from Traitor May on Tuesday or Wedensday, when she recieves her no confidence vote.

How about this guy for PM
Jacob Rees Mogg I can not trust my Prime Minister

“They just thought we’d roll over and have out tummies tickled, and they’ve suddenly discovered the British bulldog doesn’t behave like that.”

“it is possible that sometime in the distant future there may be another Conservative Government, if so perhaps they might close the CBC down, or better still Blow it up.” Not likely. When CPC M.P.. Brad Trost introduced a private member’s bill to privatize the CBC, it was soundly defeated with only four CPC M.P.s voting in support of the bill!

Keith Barnes, If there is another Conservative Gov’t in Canada, they should break up and sell the equipment, furniture, and Buildings ect.. Wendy Mesley’s and the two Diana’s contracts are free.

BBC, CBC, ABC (Australia) NZBC, all used to be one company years ago, controlled by the UK.Now they are independent and have all been taken over by left wing politics, Marxist spin doctors all of them. It is possible that sometime in the distant future there may be another Conservative Government, if so perhaps they might close the CBC down, or better still Blow it up.
