There Used to Be a Journ-o-list
Who remembers the journ-o-list? It was the email distribution list shared by dozens of liberal media types. They used it to synchronize their attacks on conservatives in an effort to promote liberal Democrats in the name of “journalism”. And they chatted with one another about some pretty vile things – justification for ideologically driven assault and vandalism being a prime example. Journ-o-list users must be proud every time riots strike a major American city.
More Than an Email Distro
Ever wonder why any given Donald Trump controversy seems so very choreographed? That’s because it is. Whether it’s the Machado story or the current bimbo* eruptions, the pattern is easy to see:
– The question is posited. (For example, Anderson Cooper asking Trump during a debate whether Donald ever forcibly kissed a woman).
– Trump says whatever Trump says.
– Out of nowhere the story breaks with all the fanfare the mainstream media can muster.
– Magically there are photos, videos, and volumes of newspaper stories that appear out of nowhere and all run at exactly the same time with the same tone and same angle presented.
It’s Like the Whole Thing’s a Set Up
If it walks like a set-up and talks like a set-up, it’s a set-up. This particular set-up is called SKDKnickerbocker. On the surface, the company appears to be an ordinary public relations firm. Take their “about us” statement:
“SKDK brings unparalleled strategic communications experience to Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, philanthropic organizations, labor unions, and political committees and candidates. There is no company that better understands the intersection of press, politics, and policy. And there is no better place than SKDK if you are in need of strategic communications advice to manage a crisis, protect a brand, advocate an issue, or win an election”
Sounds benign enough, but notice the triggers:
– “the intersection of press, politics, and policy”
– “advice to manage a crisis”
– “protect a brand
– “advocate an issue”
– “win an election”
That’s right, SKDKnickerbocker protects their brand Hillary Rodham Clinton by managing the intersection of press, politics, and policy associated with each Trump crisis. The goal? To win Hillary the White House.
Who Are They?
Who exactly is it the Democrat Party is paying a one-percenter cash dollar amount to at SKDK? According to the SKDK website, they have 81 employees. Of that number, only 16 have anything close to an apolitical background. 63 are hard core Democrat operatives and many have worked in the mainstream media. (Two employees lack biographic information but Linkedin confirms that one is the SKDK Chief Financial Officer who joined SKDK after a lengthy period working in similar roles at Univision). Take a look for yourself:
Notice the two names that jump right out. Anita Dunn and Hilary Rosen. The former was a member of Obama’s White House during his first term. Even after leaving the White House, she’s visited Obama at least 100 times in the White House as an SKDK employee. The latter has been a major league Democratic Party insider for ages.
Check out the others. Notice how they all have ties to media, entertainment, and liberal Democrats. For example, you’ll find a big chunk of the communications staff from Obama’s first term working at SKDK. You’ll find people that recently worked for Politico, the Boston Globe, MSNBC, CNN, and Bloomberg TV. One employee’s bio credits her with working on the Obamacare public relations campaign when that nightmare was imposed upon Americans in 2009. Almost all of them interned with well-known Democrat Senators and/or Congresspeople.
Again, take a look:
These are among the most well-connected insiders of all the well-connected insiders.
How Does It Work
This “intersection of press, politics, and policy” works like this:
– Hillary’s campaign decides they need to strike at Trump, so they meet with SKDK and come up with something like the Machado story or the recent bimbo eruptions. There the plan is hatched to plant the story’s starting point somewhere, whether in an Anderson Cooper question during a debate or somewhere similar.
– All those well connected former reporters at MSNBC, CNN, the Boston Globe, and etc. get in touch with their friends and former co-workers in media. They convey the messaging devised by all those former Obama deputy assistants and Department of you name it assistant press secretaries.
– The digital media specialists, and those that know how put together a quick and dirty ad campaign, arrange photo shoots for Machado or a video interview for the bimbos, and push talking points that will become newspaper stories.
It’s all as artificial as can be. As artificial as the Clintons themselves.
* Take no offense for the use of the word bimbo or the term “bimbo eruptions”; merely giving the Clintons all due respect.
