Yellow Vest Negligence Pushes French Approval of Media to New Low

In America, news of the Yellow Vest movement has been nearly non existent – a reality that the French people have attempted to rectify over the course of the last few weeks.

The metaphor built around the idea of a “mainstream” media is brilliant, to say the least.

Not only does it just sound like the right word for the job, but the idea of a flowing river, the center of which moves the fastest in only one direction almost no matter what is an apt description of what we see when we tune in.  It’s nonstop chyrons and banners and faces, shouting, while staring directly back at us, as if we were the other pundit on-air riling them up.  It’s almost as if these talking heads are taking their frustrations out on us instead of the person on the either side of their screen.

Back to creek bed, for a moment, however…

Also in the mainstream are enormous rocks; pillars of their surroundings, who are immoveable except for only in the most extreme of circumstances.  Time is one enemy of these stones, as undercurrents undercut their footing is slow, methodical ways.  On the other hand, a deluge of water could come sweeping in, where even the mightiest of boulders cannot refuse the command to tumble.

This latter scenario seems to be our most pressing at this time, with a glut media outlets all wildly flailing for our advertising demographic’s attention.

In France, that boulder is the establishment media, who have refused to give proper coverage of the months-long Yellow Vest protests occurring every weekend in Paris and beyond.

Now, the French people are reacting to this nonsense by lambasting the media every chance they get…including at the polls.

The French people have the least confidence in the mainstream media than they had since 1987, when polling on the subject began.

The poll of 1,000 people, which was conducted by the Kantar Sofres Institute, shows that while 67 percent of French follow the news, up from 62 percent last year, fewer trust the mainstream outlets, broadcaster BFMTV reports.

Print media saw the highest level of confidence with 44 percent of the respondents having a positive view of it, down eight points from the previous year.

Television, which as listed as the most preferred source of news by the respondents, saw only 38 percent say they had confidence in the reporting of television news broadcasters compared to 48 percent in 2018.

In America, news of the Yellow Vest movement has been nearly non existent – a reality that the French people have attempted to rectify over the course of the last few weeks.

WATCH: Unearthed Clip Shows Rashida Tlaib EXPLODE On Trump, Gets Dragged Out of Event

OH…MY…GOOD…NESS!!

Then-GOP nominee Donald Trump was giving a speech. Rashida Tlaib was in attendance at the event in 2016, two years before she won her seat in Congress. She. Went. Bananas. Bonkers. Wild. Crazy. Nutso. SEE IT: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1152711615877398528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152711615877398528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-video-emerges-of-screaming-rashida-tlaib-escorted-out-of-trump-rally-watch%2F Yeah. That’s a woman with a temperament to be in Congress, huh? Another angle: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1153086533894672384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1153086533894672384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Funcovered-video-shows-a-rabid-rashida-tlaib-being-tossed-out-of-trump-rally%2F Tlaib keeps getting so much attention because she keeps saying silly things. If she’s not wearing the Palestinian flag or meeting with anti-Israel activists she’s introducing articles of impeachment against Trump. If she’s not caught on video saying “impeach that motherf*****” Trump, she’s claiming all members of her party are racist. It’s kind of never-ending with this one. Now, Tlaib is saying she’ll go on a hunger strike in order to get ICE to “shut down.” Oh, and she wants her fans to follow her lead. From Free Beacon: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress. Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border. Tlaib noted, “It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress.” She added, “I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.” Concluding, “I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these…

BUSTED! Video Resurfaces Of Pelosi Saying ‘We Certainly Don’t’ Need More Undocumented

Oh, is that right?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them. See for yourself: https://twitter.com/IWV/status/1152186873252651014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152186873252651014&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-surfaces-showing-hypocrite-pelosi-sounding-a-lot-like-trump%2F Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats. She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” https://twitter.com/joshjame/status/1147615395018354688?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147615395018354688&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/RobertGeist/status/1147663330049515526?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147663330049515526&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Do we still do the mic drop thing?

She ain’t scared and is an impressive leader. She missed a chance to negotiate a lot of legislation by dealing with him.
