Does The GOP Have A Strategy To Combat the Mediacracy in 2016?


As  should be obvious, the NY Times’s revisionist “bombshell” on Benghazi, is a preview of the Benghazi cover story the MSM will mount in defense of Hillary for the next couple of years. The question is – will the American public fall for it? Will the alternative media and more importantly – the GOP – be able to combat what Daniel Greenfield calls the “mediacracy”?

Media bias was over decades ago. The media isn’t biased anymore, it’s a player, its goal is turn its Fourth Estate into a fourth branch of government, the one that squats below the three branches and blocks their access to the people and blocks the people’s access to them. Under the Mediacracy there will still be elections, they will even be mostly free, they just won’t matter so long as its upper ranks determine the dialogue on both sides of the media wall.
The Mediacracy isn’t playing for peanuts anymore. It’s not out to skew a few stories, it’s out to take control of the country. In military empires, the military can act as a Praetorian Guard. In political empires, it’s the people who control the political conversation who also control the succession.

In 2008, the Mediacracy elevated an Illinois State Senator who had briefly showed up in the Federal Senate to the highest office in the land. They did it even though he had no skills for the job and no serious plan for fixing any of the country’s problems. They did it to show that they could. They did it because they wanted to tell a compelling story and inflict radical change on a country that would have never voted for it, if it had not been lied and guilted into making the single worst decision in its entire history.

The mediacracy’s preferred candidate for 2016 is Hillary Clinton, a woman who rose to prominence on her impeached and disbarred corruptocrat husband’s coattails. Her tenure as Secretary of State is notable for two things – She is the most traveled Sec. of State in US history, and she presided over a four-year string of diplomatic disasters. But the coronation of Queen Hillary began almost immediately after she stepped down. ABC has dubbed 2013, “the year everyone gave Hillary Clinton an award” because she has been showered with at least 19 awards, already.

Republicans better get ready. The mediacracy is not about to turn over any leaves after the disaster of the Obama presidency. And neither is Hillary. And demographics are increasingly – not in our favor. The GOP needs to be wargaming right now on how to deal with this situation, but unfortunately, it looks like  their strategy for 2016 is geared more toward weeding out tea party favorites than dealing with the two candidates who most deserve their attention –  Hillary Clinton and the Mediacracy.

  1. Good post. Our only hope is if Hillary faces a serious opponent in the primaries, otherwise she is by far the media favorite and they will campaign hard to get her elected.

    The first Hillary 2016 campaign ad was Barbara Walter’s list of fascinating people.

  4. Strategery? The gop, surely you jest?

    It’s all Hillary, all the time for the msm from now on! The gop will as usual be gagging on dust and wondering what the hell just hit them.


  5. ND, of course the correct answer would be . . . . .
    “The Stupid, In the Tank Party” There is just no ‘splain it.

    {You need to see the Mike Huckabee ads for Lindsey Lohan running down here}


  6. Huck….He can keep his nice little social conservative show on Fox – but he needs to butt the hell out of politics.
    We can also thank him for helping Todd Akin decide to stay in the Senate race in Missouri, last year. Thanks Huck. That worked out soooo well.
