It’s time to stop pretending that “mainstream media” reporters are real journalists: They are Left-wing political activists and journo-terrorists
(Natural News) The news profession has been trending to the Left for decades now, but in the age of Obama and POTUS Donald Trump, reporters have increasingly eschewed their journalistic credentials in favor of donning their Left-wing political activist caps.
One of the most recent examples involves April Glaser, a Slate correspondent serving as an operative for the Democratic Party under the guise of being a ‘news’ reporter.
As noted by indy journalist Tim Pool and reported by Information Liberation, Glaser not-so-covertly threatened Chase Bank recently with negative press if the institution did not act to deplatform Right-leaning activist group Proud Boys.
Pool was leaked an email in which Glaser allegedly wrote:
I’m April, a journalist at Slate. Writing to ask if JP Morgan Chase is aware that the Proud Boys affiliated online store 1776.shop uses Chase Paymentech as its payment processor. 1776.shop is what’s redirected from FundTheWest.org, which Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes cited as the legal defense fund of the Proud Boys.
The Proud Boys are designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group and members have engaged in group violence in Portland and New York City. The group has been suspended by Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Is the usage of Chase Paymentech in support of such groups against Chase’s policy? On a deadline.
Pool noted that following the recent controversy involving YouTube’s demonetization of conservative commentator Steven Crowder, as well as “mass censorship hitting YouTube, I found it pertinent to show how these activists in media operate and how they use framing devices to target people like conservatives and other political groups.”
He went on to note that Glaser has a history of practicing Left-wing activism disguised as journalism. He says she’s advocated for government regulation of speech in the past, and her attempt to threaten Chase into dropping the Proud Boys is proof she hasn’t changed her behavior.
Pool said that the email to Chase was confirmed to him on two separate occasions, so he is vouching for it as the real deal. Also, he said that in his correspondence with Slate, the site referred to the contents of Glaser’s email.
