The “job” of media is to “actually control exactly what people think,” MSNBC’s TV-host Mika Brzezinski said during a lively discussion on fears that US President Donald Trump is “trying to undermine the media.”

Scarborough: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing – what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do’.”

Brzezinski: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

As the Grabien news website noted, the Brzezinski’s comment did not surprise her co-panelists. Opposite, her co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out that “Trump‘s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.”

    Mika has to make a living at something.

    Is her father the old guy, goodmate of Soros, and absolutely hates Russia, who wrote the book ‘The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives’ Zbigniew Brzezinski?

    The apple does not fall far from the tree.

    Wow! The cat has been let out of the bag! Wow!!! Thank you, Mika, for telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth (even if it was by accident and not by design). This lying, disgusting, power-hungry and propagandising msm will be put to the sword by the alternative media that will report the facts to the people, who will make their own minds.
    By all means give your biased opinions when asked, but stop the lying and propagandising, or people will believe the opposite of what you say.
    Now we know why they are in such a blind panic. The more they lie and squirm, the more painful will be their extinction process.
    How very Soviet! Now we know what happened to Soviet style media control.
    Thank you, Mika, for being so “open and honest”.

    A Freudian slip? The full transcript shows that isn’t what she meant to say, so this headline is a cheap shot from Zero Hedge, not up to the standard of integrity we should be known for.

    However, this is what we all know Ms. Brzezinsky *would* have said if she were being completely honest! So as humor this clip absolutely works.

    Mika Brzezinski, of course, is right.

    Only mis-educated, thoroughly programmed consumers parrot what they learned in pre-school: “Main-stream is here to bring us the trufff!”

    First honest MSNBC anchor. others just pretend they’re “defenders of democracy” or “just using their first amendment rights” by undermining legitimately elected government with endless slander and disinformation.
