Time magazine’s cover features menacing portrait of Steve Bannon

If you want to see how the media shapes a narrative and thus sets an agenda they want to talk about, look no further than Time magazine’s cover with Steve Bannon. The official MSM narrative is that Bannon is out promoting himself, Trump is upset and the one I love… Axelrod never did anything like this.

Point one – Did Steve Bannon ask Time to do the article? No. Can he stop an article being written about him? No. Should he be proud of what he accomplished? Yes!

Point two – It is not uncommon to do a story about a campaign manager when said candidate wins the presidency! In fact, that is exactly what happened with “you never saw Axelrod do something like this” Axelrod:

So if you want to know why we call it “fake news”, if you want to know why alternative media gets large viewership, if you want to know why “citizen reports” are popping up all over and creating blogs like this – look no further than MSM. You are so transparent these days we cannot even see you!
