The beast groaned, then rolled on it’s side, shaking the earth as it’s head lobbed back and forth, noxious green gas spewing from every grey, slime-filled orifice, and it began to try and rise up again, yet too drunk from lack of blood and multiple injuries, the foul-smelling, gargantuan, rat-sack of a monster, kept slipping, falling and thrashing around aimlessly, as people stood on the sidelines and watched in disbelief. The creature continued, though mortally wounded, unable to exhibit the strength it had in previous times of old. Blood, gushing now from the dragon as it stumbled off into the distance, filled the streets and flames shot from it’s ears and other unlikely places. Ripping it’s own, scale-covered skin on passing cars and the corners of great stone buildings, while screaming, roaring and spitting fire, it fell, to the earth shaking the ground, and with each fall there was a new death rattle…until…
the once impressive figure, was no more.
Hell’s fire spewed from the open wounds and out of the long gashes came rats…exiting, scurrying, pouring out of the dead beast and running for cover, hiding under every rock and blade of grass, exposing the fact that the beast was never a beast to begin with, but only a shroud, filled with a million tiny rats, that were so easily stepped upon, now that the monster lay rocking back and forth, almost dead.
It was bound to happen. Things were and are headed that way. The media, once a giant “thing” not to be reckoned with, has been unceremoniously castrated…and what we see now are the angry vermin that were inside, what is now known to be a fraudulent exterior.
These scumbags, who made up the entity known as MSM, have been completely exposed and I am here to tell you, as someone who worked in broadcast for over 20 years, that there will be no “coming back” from this. They are flexing what amounts to their impotency, because they still can’t believe that they’ve been delt a fatal blow, not only by the God Emperor, President Trump, and the overwhelming majority of Trump supporters, but by GOD himself.
They don’t get it, which shows they were never in the news business to begin with. Whoever these imposters are, they have thrown the golden rule of news away for the weekly trash collection, and there’s no coming back from that. It’s been picked up and taken to the dump, along with their credibility.
You see, when I was working for CNN back in the 1980s, credibility was everything.
After I left CNN in 2001, I worked for many news networks, regularly, as a perma-lancer (a daily freelancer with a schedule, contract etc,) such as MSNBC, NBC, CBS, Bloomberg and other freelance work for other major news networks.
Briefly, there is an art to creating network graphics, and a consistency within the business, that makes you a more valuable player as a freelance employee, because you know how everything works already and you require little to no training. The training period for a Senior News Graphics and Animation Artist, is ongoing, as the technology changes so rapidly in this business, and in the case of CNN, so does the President of the company.
You know things like; people are going to be screaming at you, as it gets closer to air time. You know that just because you completed the overwhelming stack of work that you had for that day, there’s nothing stopping a crazed producer from flying into the room at the last minute, and with a voice and body language filled with “life or death” hysteria…he is going to BEG a complicated animation from you, that you are NOT going to be able to deliver.
So right at the crucial moments in production, exactly during “crunch time,” you’ll need to drop what you are working on so you can negotiate with this nutbag, whose hoping your animation will be the thing that gets him that promotion to Executive Producer, that he’s been chasing for years now.
Expect things like that…all day long…and be able to calmly look over at them and explain to them that you have many other things to do, then get them to make concessions that YOU can live with and create something that is concise, helps him get his point across and is do-able. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking and you’re losing valuable time with this self-stroking jackazz.
They want YOU to be as stressed as THEY are about it, because they think you’ll do a better job at helping THEM get noticed by upstairs management! LOL.
There are so many quirks and frustrations associated with working for the “NEWS” that, once you have a proven track record, you are worth some money to them.
They are not paying your for “art.” They are paying you to be their mind and their HANDS. If they could get on the MAC and do it themselves they would…but they can’t. So communication is imperative. You have to understand exactly what they want before you spend one second working on it because time is money.
If they like it blue…then I like it blue.
You have to develop a wide range of skill-sets to work in broadcast news and you have to be fast, decisive and ACCURATE.
I can honestly say that there was no fabrication of the news, what so ever, when I was working for CNN, and as a matter of fact, if there were information errors of ANY kind, you could lose your job for that. I saw many people get fired for allowing a story to run, that was later debunked by FOX. Accuracy was paramount and work was checked… double and triple-checked.
So what happened?
How did CNN get a permanent BRAND as being the FAKE-EST of all FAKE NEWS?
I am dedicated to answering this question right now, because I was a part of this industry for so long, and never saw anything like this happening while I worked in broadcast, and it was actually the opposite. Truth mattered..
There was plenty of naked manipulation…but manipulation and provable facts are 2 different things.
For instance, some time in the early 1990s, we were told never to use a photograph of a black person holding a gun, even if the perpetrator was black! The Christmas graphics and animations were Christian-downed, and other holidays were celebrated.
I have no problem recognizing holidays that our amazing LEGAL American citizens, who come here from all over the world because they love America, celebrate… and it ADDS to the incredible story of America, but don’t take the Christianity out of Christmas.
Since I left CNN in 2001, things were pretty much up to the new President of the company, whoever that might be at the time, and I can’t tell you how many Presidents I went through personally while working at CNN, but there were many.
I think I can safely link this current descent into broadcast madness to this thing called Zucker.
In plain English…they’ve gone too far…too fast.
After all, the trick, and it is a TRICK, doesn’t work unless people are watching your product. It’s the one ingredient that they can’t figure out how to manufacture; an audience.
