1) The reason for the #Gannett firings may (?) reside in the #Hussein era Countering Disinformation & Propaganda Act included in the #NDAA for fiscal year 2017 that #O signed. It expired in Dec 2018. Originally submitted by #Portman/Murphy & called the Countering Information
2) Warfare Act, it was then co-sponsored as titled by #RepAdamKinzinger & #RepTedLieu as H.R. 5181. This dystopic, #MinistryOfTruth like #Bill, would 'develop & disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.
Think #C_A & #Gannett connection w/4AM talking
3) points à la #OperationMockingbird. The #Bill was created to enable a gov't crack down on any media property it deems #Propaganda, & here's the kicker in all this, it provides substantial amounts of #Money to fund an army of local journalists to disseminate counter-propaganda,
4) making sure gov'ts own #FakeNews becomes the mainstream #TalkingPoint(s) of the #People. To that end, $160mil was allocated 4 - 2 yrs to pay approx. 1000 journalist which have now been fired. That's = $80K annual salary & benefits.
#Coincidence [ ? ]
5) This is only a basic starting point for further investigative research. #Tweets of those that have been fired from the #HuffPuff #OpinionSection are compiled herein. That's just 1 defunded #PropagandaOutlet. #DSMedia isn't about to fund their failing efforts alone.
6) #Gannett, cutting back on its #Minions as they would have to fund out of the company coffers & you know they want us paying for the drivel they hawk! Here's that #HuffPuff ex-employee #Tweet grouping.
#Twitter's #JimAcosta like #DSMinions may be fewer in # in the future.
7) #BuzzFeed is doing a staggered firing of its journalists(?). 250 have been let go from their digital staff. How they needed 1,666 to run it is telling. The time of the #FreeRide born of using loop holes in gov't acts is being phased out. #Simple. No deep reason need be
8) posited 4the why these #DSMedia firings are happening. In classic fashion, media outlets, & personnel, are presenting versions of the firings. #One disseminator, #Axios, shows how this newly necessitated narrative is being run.
