SECRET MEDIA MANIPULATORS: The SLATE Political Gabfest
THE MEDIA COORDINATION NETWORK
If you have been paying attention you may have noticed a synchronization between multiple, disparate, media outlets. We'll let one picture do for a thousand words here:
Or, really, just one word: "Dark."
We've long known that journalist coordinate with each other behind the scenes. Just look at the how the JournoList collusion shaped the 2008 election. That was, however, child's play compared to how the real forces behind the curtain work. They've been doing this since print media was invented and the digital media kids were just mimicking the techniques the Corporatist Government has already perfected. Today we want to look at one of these newer outlets in the media coordination--one that works in plain sight--and is far more dangerous than it at first appears.
QUASI-CORPORATE PRESS: SLATE
Slate was established in 1996 by Michael Kinsley colluding with Microsoft. Kinsley was already a leftist New World Order operative and his "magazine" merged the computer-behemoth Microsoft with a journalistic cover. David Plotz was brought in immediately due to his expertise in covert operations and ability to maintain iron discipline in false-front organizations.
All of this is well documented and an "open secret" within the Intelligence and tech community. What you probably hadn't heard was how the media-orchestration operations have evolved to address streaming and digital channels. These have traditionally been outposts of truth, operating beyond the control of the monolithic mainstream forces, but as we've learned the global elite is learning fast.

INTERVIEW WITH AN INTERN
Our tip managed to get us to a person identified as a former Intern of the Slate Political Gabfest and familiar with the internal workings. We conducted the interview via Skype as he was unwilling to divulge his location for obvious reasons.
RealTrueNews: What can you tell us about how you got onto the SPG operations team?
Slate Political Gabfest Intern: You go through a recruitment process when you apply that, if you get past the first two interviews, does a government-security background check on you and looks for 'compromise material' they can use to ensure your silence. I pretty much partied all the way through college so I had some. I got hired.
RTN: What does the Slate Gabfest Team do?
SPGI: A lot of it is just normal pod-cast stuff, whatever. They all have MSM day-job covers so they come together weekly to record. I would help carry stuff. Get coffee. Amphetamines. Intern stuff. But when they're recording? It's carefully orchestrated. They describe themselves as a 'relay node in the information stream.'
RTN: Did you know what that meant?
SPGI: They never explained it, and you don't, you know, ask questions. But after awhile you figure it out. They get these directives in sealed pouches from couriers and they work the messages inside into the broadcast.
It's multi-layered. It's not like they just come out and talk about whatever. The real messages are in the dialog. Pauses. Banter--a lot of the 'cocktail chatter' at the end? That stuff is highly dense messaging to other media outlets to give them directions. Remember when Mr. Plotz was doing these 'closing credit things' that were like performance art? When they changed the music? That was a big deal. People all over the media were scrambling.
Those were messages to coms-teams in congress. Super complex--encoded? Encrypted? It sounded like nonsense but The Gabfest is like a modern-day equivalent of a Numbers Station. If you're the audience, you know what to listen for.
RTN: Do you know what the messaging was? Do you know who was sending the directives?
SPGI: [Laughs] No way. You didn't get nosy. And us Interns were basically expendable. If you got out of line, well, Plotz can kill with his hands. Some of those interns you've heard about who went on to 'better jobs' or 'great opportunities'? Let's just say you'll never hear from them again.
But like, you know, when everyone was using the word "dystopian" after Trump's speech? They got that out. Coordination on stuff like the discrediting of Romney on the family dog trip? That was injected by Slate. The whole Trump-as-a-Narcissist. They organized that. You won't even hear those words--but it's all in things like pauses between the speaking or Dickerson interrupting Emily. We'd have a stop-watch going and have to do a sequence like 10 times to make it sound natural and get the timing right.
RTN: Were you scared of them?
SPGI: They're an intrusion-specialist assassination team. What do you think?
RTN: Did they ever threaten you?
SPGI: If you see them live, watch any time Plotz moves his hands when speaking. Everyone on staff flinches. Dickerson can go through any security system like it's not there. He can make you like him by hypnosis. Bazelon is like a master profiler. Together they're unstoppable. If they're in town--doing the live-show thing? It generally means someone's dead.
RTN: Can you give me an example of how you worked?
SPGI: Okay. Sure. December 2015. It was, I think, the 'Is He Hitler or Mussolini' Edition. So, the show definitely isn't friendly to Trump--but the data-push is Trump-As-A-Narcissist. If you hear the show? Nothing specifically about that--but it was encoded. You can see the effects in google.
[Ed--He directed us to Google Trends]
SPGI: See, right before? It's like an all-time low with nothing much before it. Then Slate broadcasts the message and . . .
RTN: It takes off.
SPGI: Like a rocket. If you're in the media, you don't cross those guys. Everyone in the MSM is terrified of them.
RTN: Before we started recording, you told us that the whole Trump-Presidency was causing things to break-down? That it was why you felt like you had to say something?
SPGI: I've been gone awhile, but I can only imagine the freak-out level in the deep-press. And inside SPG... I don't know. I remember when Emily [Bazelon] wasn't with-the-program and they sent her to [makes air quotes] 'New Haven' and basically replaced her with someone who never shows up in person and doesn't even sound like her. I'm worried.
RTN: You're worried about friends who are still inside.
RTN: Can you get us in touch with someone who's in right now? We believe the best protection is to get this out in the open.
SPGI: [sounds worried]. Yeah. Maybe. I'll think about it.
