Behind The Madonna (Biden) Whore (Trump) Syndrome

CBS Sunday Morning Host Jane Pauley, in a lilting voice, told her audience that it literally needs to know that Democrat President Joe Biden met his wife, Jill, on a blind date and proposed five times before she said yes.

In a later segment, former GOP President Donald J. Trump was relentlessly vilified by the “journalist” who covered him at the White House, CBS News senior national correspondent Ben Tracy. Trump was called the “Disrupter in Chief.” Tracy couldn’t find anything to like about Trump, who received 75 million votes in the past election.

The Whopper

Jill Biden’s first husband was Bill Stevenson and he claims he and his wife met Joe Biden in 1972, when they worked on then-New Castle County Councilman Biden’s first campaign for the Senate  Stevenson said the story about Joe and Jill’s meeting on a “blind date” is pure fiction. He says they had an affair and the betrayal led to the painful (for him) end to their marriage.

We might all agree that it’s nobody’s business how the Bidens’ met but it is our business when we are continually told bold faced lies about the circumstances of their meeting by the mainstream media.

Why don’t CBS and other national media outlets just stay silent about how the Bidens met? Why do they even bring it up? How can they justify lying to the American public this way?

Currying Favor

It is surely relevant that CBS is owned by ViacomCBS, a massive multi-national corporation that owns dozens of TV stations and digital media outlets (Showtime, MTV, etc.) in the U.S.. as well as vast media holdings around the world.

CBS combined with Viacom about a year ago and, in November, ViacomCBS announced it will sell a major asset, Simon & Schuster Publishing, to Penguin Random House for $2.175 billion. Penguin is a wholly owned subsidiarity of a German company, Bertelsmann SE. The Wall Street Journal says ViacomCBS wants to use the cash proceeds of the sale to further invest in its streaming-video efforts.

The problem for ViacomCBS is that the sale is subject to regulatory approval and there is significant opposition to the sale.

ViacomCBS Faces Significant opposition To The Sale Of Simon & Schuster

The American Booksellers Association (ABA) has asked the U.S. Dept. of Justice to challenge the sale under antitrust laws and to ensure there is no further consolidation of power in the U.S. book publishing industry.

Publisher’s Weekly reported Open Markets Institute Executive Director Barry Lynn called the sale a “threat” to democracy because “the deal will concentrate vastly too much power over the U.S. book market in the hands of a single, foreign-owned corporation.”

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to wonder if the owner of CBS is seeking to curry favor with Biden’s administration to ensure its bum deal goes through.

What’s The Real Danger Here?

Meanwhile, Simon & Schuster recently cancelled the publication of a book by U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-MO, citing “his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.” Hawley exercised a procedural right that is commonly used by both parties to challenge the certification of Presidential electors. Specifically, he challenged electors in a few swing states where there is evidence of voter fraud. (Of course, mainstream media flatly rejects the existence of voter fraud in the election.)

What is the greater threat to our democracy? Is it a Senator who asked legitimate questions about the validity of the election or the sale of Simon & Schuster.

It appears that CBS is attempting to curry favor with the Biden administration so that it will approve a sale that is clearly not in the best interests of Americans. If the sale goes through, Bertelsmann would control the publishing of about a third of all books in the U.S.
