NY Times Calls For Biden to Appoint “Reality Czar” to Fight “Misinformation”

Here comes the Ministry of Truth.

The New York Times has amplified claims by “experts” who are calling for Joe Biden to appoint a “reality czar,” prompting critics to compare the idea to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984.

In an article entitled ‘How the Biden Administration Can Help Solve Our Reality Crisis’, the NYT’s Kevin Roose cites “experts” who are calling on “the Biden administration put together a cross-agency task force to tackle disinformation and domestic extremism, which would be led by something like a “reality czar.”

The job of this “reality czar” would be to head up “a centralized task force could coordinate a single, strategic response” to things like COVID-related and election fraud “conspiracy theories.”

“This task force could also meet regularly with tech platforms, and push for structural changes that could help those companies tackle their own extremism and misinformation problems. (For example, it could formulate “safe harbor” exemptions that would allow platforms to share data about QAnon and other conspiracy theory communities with researchers and government agencies without running afoul of privacy laws.) And it could become the tip of the spear for the federal government’s response to the reality crisis,” states the article.

“Ah, the Ministry of Truth. I’ve been waiting for this one,” responded Raheem Kassam.

While the Orwell comparison has become something of a cliché, in this instance its the best available.

In the book, the Ministry of Truth decides what is “truth” in Oceania no matter what the actual truth may be, and exercises this monopoly over reality by falsifying the nature of historical events.

The Ministry of Truth also uses this power monopoly to redefine the very word “truth” under the rubric of Newspeak, so “truth” becomes whatever the government-approved version of events is in that moment.

What the “experts” cited by the New York Times are calling far and what Orwell portrayed in his book are so similar, even Kevin Roose admits, “It sounds a little dystopian.”

But if “conspiracy theories” really do pose a deadly threat to society, who is responsible for pushing the most egregious disinformation?

As we have exhaustively documented – the most harmful “conspiracy theories,” – such as Saddam Hussein’s non-existent WMD’s and supporting “freedom fighters” who were actually jihadists in Libya and Syria – are always exclusively peddled by the mainstream media.

The corporate press pushing these two whoppers created the consensus for war that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and an international migrant crisis.

The New York Times was one of the most prominent outlets that amplified both these damaging deceptions and yet they faced no consequences whatsoever.

Such lies are also far more harmful to society because mainstream media networks have the biggest platforms, they are amplified by rigged social media platforms, and they share a common consensus narrative with each other, meaning there is almost no room for questioning or debate.

If there really was a truly independent “reality czar,” the media would be big trouble because its entire raison d’être is predicated around distorting reality.

President Trump reacted with glee to the news that Liz Cheney has been ousted from Republican leadership, labelling her “a bitter, horrible human being.”

Cheney was dumped by House Republicans after repeated criticism of Trump.

The last straw came Tuesday when Cheney promised she “will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy.”

Reacting to the development, Trump issued a statement noting “I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country.”

“She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy,” he added.

Trump further accused the entire Cheney family of being warmongers, noting “She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history.”

“I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!” Trump added, in expectation of Cheney being embraced by his media enemies.

“I’m in Trouble!” Biden Panics at Not Being Able to Find His Mask

Finds it in his pocket after first bizarrely looking through a folder.

Joe Biden was caught in yet another embarrassing public gaffe as he panicked about losing his face mask during a speech to supporters in Georgia.

Biden was seen wearing his mask before he delivered the remarks but maybe should have kept it on given that he coughed and spluttered at several moments throughout his 20 minute address.

When Biden invited Democrat Sens. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to join him on stage, the first lady pointed at her own mask in an effort to remind Biden to put his back on.

However, this didn’t happen because Biden spent the next minute fumbling around trying to find the object without success, repeatedly flipping through a folder of notes to no avail.

“I’m looking for my mask. I’m in trouble,” Biden said to the crowd as a staffer got on stage to give him one while Warnock and Ossoff tried to distract the crowd.

Biden finally found his own mask in his pocket, having previously failed to check what would have been the obvious place to look, before continuing with the event.

Despite the fact that the CDC updated its advice to say that vaccinated Americans don’t need to wear masks outdoors, Biden’s entire team is still doing so, once again underscoring how the face covering is purely a political symbol.

34 Million Fewer People Watched Biden Speech Compared to Trump’s First SOTU

Ratings show just 11.6 million watched Biden’s address to Congress.

34 million fewer people watched Joe Biden’s speech last night compared to Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address.

Ratings show that 11.6 million watched Biden’s speech compared to 45.6 million who watched Trump’s first address to Congress in 2018.

The lowest number of Americans who watched a Trump State of the Union throughout his term in office was 37 million.

Biden barely managed to beat the viewership for this year’s Oscars (9.8 million), even though that set a new record low for the Academy Awards

Biden’s speeches and public appearances have become notorious for their poor ratings and lack of engagement, unless you’re talking about the overwhelming number of people who downvote videos on the official White House YouTube channel.

As a reminder, Biden officially received 81 million votes during the presidential election, the most a presidential candidate has ever received and over 11 million more than Barack Obama achieved in 2008.

Respondents to the announcement of the viewing figures expressed their surprise, given Biden’s overwhelming ‘popularity’ in 2020.

“Most popular president of all time,” commented one.

“Just wait, Dominion is finding more viewers as we tweet,” joked another.

“Biden’s speech to Congress was not only boring, but the chamber was mostly empty. Even the Democrats who showed up couldn’t stay awake,” remarked another.
