Unbelievably Rothkopf has the audacity to criticize Trump for having repeatedly shown great fondness for foreign leaderseven despots and known murderers, human rights abusers and criminals, while Rothkopf himself is literally a paid agent working to disseminating propaganda for one of the most repressive regimes on the planet, one that does much of the Saudis dirty work for it in Washington. And the fact that the Daily Beast makes no disclosure of any of this is what makes this practice having paid lobbyists and consultants for foreign regimes and corporations masquerade as objective and neutral analysts of the news such a massive journalistic scandal and fraud.
From todays Intercept article: MSNBC and Daily Beast Feature UAE Lobbyist David Rothkopf With No Disclosure: a Scandalous Media-Wide Practice
Much of the American public despises mainstream corporate media, but rather than engage in some self-reflection and admit failure they just complain about Trump. Its critical we recognize that mass media in the U.S. is very much part of the very same discredited establishment its supposed to report on, thus its response to justified criticism is likewise establishment-esque. Blame the readers, blame Trump, blame anyone but themselves.
This is why mass medias gotten even worse since Trump was elected not an easy feat. Its been obsessed with a Russia-Trump collusion tale that appears to be going nowhere, while simultaneously cheering on Trumps worst instincts such as when he bombs Syria. Moreover, one thing the U.S. media definitely seems to have no interest in doing is disclosing when its commentators and pundits are paid shills for foreign governments, defense contractors and other unmentionable interests.

It would be good to see (1) citizenship, (2) non-US employers, whether government, non-government, commercial, or private. Probably more. Bet lots are country-less hacks propagandizing to the highest bidder, in US dollars of course.
The hateful Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a shill for our 1400-year-old civilizational enemy, islam!!!!
If you form an organization to effectively combat the muslim enemy within, it is immediately labeled a “hate group”! Then shills like Elizabeth Warren SHRIEK at anyone who attends an event sponsored by such groups as a “hater” who is allegedly beyond the bounds of civilized behavior!!!!
It is high time to RICO the SPLC, and to outlaw the terrorist muslim Brotherhood and all its organizations, especially those big HATE and TERROR mosques in every large US city!!!! Remember 9/11, and the Boston Marathon bombing!!!!
