Freedom-loving Americans have long looked to Fox News to help counter Democrats’ propaganda machine.
But the network’s viewers may no longer be the group they are most interested in keeping happy.
And now left-wing actor Russell Brand just exposed a dirty little secret.
Over the past couple of weeks, Brand has been making headlines for causing left-wing radicals and ruling class elites’ heads to explode by telling the truth.
Most recently, a clip of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher went viral after Brand savaged MSNBC contributor John Heilemann over the network’s role in Democrats’ propaganda machine.
“I’ve been on that MSNBC, mate — it was propagandist nut-crackery on there,” Brand told Heilemann.
As expected, that sent the self-proclaimed “journalist” into an utter tailspin, prompting him to challenge the actor to provide a “specific example of an MSNBC correspondent or anchor being on television saying something they knew was false,” as he claimed Fox News did with the 2020 election.
Brand was all too happy to comply with that request, rattling off examples that ranged from MSNBC’s disgusting effort to demonize comedian Joe Rogan for his doctor prescribing him one of the most prescribed and effective antiviral medications in the world, ivermectin, to deal with COVID, to the network’s hosts and contributors repeatedly insisting COVID vaccines completely protect against both symptoms and transmission.
But while he dismantled Heilemann and exposed the corporate-controlled media’s lies for millions around the world to see, Brand wasn’t done there.
After the clip went viral, the actor proceeded to make a followup video in which he went into further detail explaining his rebuke of MSNBC, and the corporate-controlled media at large.
As he explained, while MSNBC was the target of his criticism, Brand’s issue is with the entire corporate-controlled media, including Fox News, as he believes – for good reason – that such networks are far more beholden to advertiser dollars, and corporations who pay them, than they are to the truth.
“My perspective is all mainstream media outlets are so beholden to corporate and commercial interests that they will not give you the type of information you need to make valuable decisions about the way that systemic power operates,” Brand explained. “That’s my position, so I don’t think that Fox News is the answer. I don’t think MSNBC news is the answer.”
He went on to point to the fact that no matter what side of the political aisle they represent, TV news networks equally rely on “divisive and incendiary” figures like former President Donald Trump to drive ratings to prove that these self-proclaimed “journalists” care more about ratings than the truth.
“The fact is that they both benefit from figures like Donald Trump who are divisive and incendiary and who draw eyeballs to the screen to their channels for whom?” Brand added. “Their advertisers – that’s the way the business model works.”
Of course, it’s difficult for anyone in the corporate-controlled media to argue against the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star’s analysis of the driving force behind both MSNBC and Fox News.
After all, CNN is literally on the verge of a total collapse as viewers have completely abandoned the network now that they no longer have minute-by-minute updates to their latest witch hunt against the former President with him out of office.
In his video, Brand concluded by detailing the important role journalism should play in a free society, holding those in power to account.
But as he explained, that’s simply not the case in today’s corporate-controlled media landscape that has been co-opted by left-wing radicals more interested in advancing their left-wing agenda and electing Democrats than actually doing their jobs.
“This is what I believe is possible for the media,” Brand said. “You can have transparency, accountability, authenticity, integrity, an open conversation with viewers that’s not based on piety, pomposity, judgment, and condescension — we are together looking for better ways to organize society, create better systems, hold the powerful to account, and create systems where they aren’t so powerful, and address many of the issues in American contemporary life that are causing the vision and conflict.”
After spending much of his life as a left-wing activist, Russell Brand is the last person anyone expected to be leading the charge to hold the corporate-controlled media accountable for their lies.
But he may very well be the voice America needs to finally break through the so-called “mainstream” media’s noise.
