This is what it has all come down to folks, a mock parody of the former USSR under the spell of Pravda, the Communist propaganda rag. As reported by Breitbart yesterday afternoon during Michael Savage’s run-up to what turned out to be a ‘debate’ between Donald Trump and Lester Hillary Holt:
NEW YORK — Talk radio star Michael Savage has characterized his being abruptly pulled off the radio on Monday afternoon following a discussion of Hillary Clinton’s health issues as an act of “pure sabotage.”
In an email to this reporter on Monday night, Savage wrote:
Pure sabotage. No advance notice from me or my producers. Then ‘ISDN problems’ during my discussion of the side effects of Levodopa, used for treating Parkinson’s. Then the two fill-ins trying to sound informed and clever from WABC who have 40% lower ratings than me, boasting on air during my hours that they conducted a ‘coup’ by taking Savage off the air.
Savage was taken off the air on New York powerhouse WABC and was replaced by Curtis Sliwa and Ron Kuby, host of the afternoon drive show titled “Curtis & Kuby.”

Which then brings us into the ‘debate’ itself.
Consider that ninety percent of ALL the media we encounter is owned by six corporations. Eighty percent of internet news is controlled by a handful of multi-national corporations.
Take your pick, there’s a link for every political taste all stating the same thing. What happened to Savage is an offense against all our freedoms and deserves full media coverage, yet you know, and I know, that won’t happen. The true fact of the matter is that the progressive neo-communists have captured Big Media in America as predicted 50 years ago in 45 Steps to The Communist Takeover of America, numbers 15 through 25 being of particular interest. Last night’s ‘debate’ was preordained with approved questions fed to Hillary the liar in routine fashion. This pattern cannot be allowed to continue.
For one thing, Savage’s new book, Scorched Earth, Restoring the Country after Obama is an eye-opener, full of information that the evil establishment folks don’t like. And he’s telling truths that call out the Clintons, the Obamas, George Soros, et al, so of course they’re going to try to sabotage him. Remember CNN fired Dr. Drew for talking about Hillary’s health on the air too. There’s a dark conspiracy going on here folks. These leftist fascists are determined to take down the USA and put Clinton in the White House. En Garde!
Which provides a convenient segue` into Daniel Greenfield’s take in FrontPage Magazine on last night’s three ring circus…
Donald Trump’s main opponent in the first presidential debate wasn’t Hillary Clinton. It was NBC anchor Lester Holt. Hillary, with forced smiles as brittle as china and an eerie fake laugh, continued her primary debate strategy of repeating canned talking points while waiting for the moderator to knock off her opponent. Hillary wasn’t there to debate, but to once again seem like the only possible option.
Holt’s job was to make her seem like the only possible option by targeting Trump.
There were fears that Lester Holt would be another Candy Crowley. That was unfair to Crowley. The entire debate was structurally biased. Its general topics were framed in narrow left-wing terms, instead of discussing the economy and moving the country forward, Holt defined the topics as class warfare and racial divisiveness. Even national security was narrowed down to Obama’s favorite battle space, cyberspace, rather than the actual battlefield.
Trump was hit with repeated personal attacks and gotcha questions by Holt, who then took to arguing with him over the facts. Hillary, despite having been under investigation by the FBI, received only a perfunctory offer from Lester Holt to comment on her emails after Trump had raised the issue.
But Holt’s overt bias also proved to be his undoing. Candy Crowley had been effective because her interjection into the debate between Obama and Romney had come as something of a surprise. Holt made his agenda clear at the outset.
As Daniel Greenfield closes it out at the end:
Hillary Clinton is the perfect embodiment of the system. Artificial, unnatural and corrupt. And Lester Holt took on his role as the system’s feeble gatekeeper. But it’s not the system that the public wants. It seeks someone to smash the system. That is the source of Trump’s popularity. It is what makes him so threatening.
The debate was not about any of its topics, not the official ones or unofficial ones. It was about the subtext of the system. It was about what the system does to protect itself. Instead of a debate, what the people witnessed was the media hive trying to destroy an intruder while protecting its queen.
And once again, the system failed. Its media gatekeeper drone failed. The queen is in check.
