Right off the bat, Richard Eskow sets up a MSM cover, deflection, and downplay article: “Aren’t there better things to argue about? As it turns out, there are.”
Aside from this “play/write it safe as possible” PR blather, in relation to Donna Brazile and ongoing corruption within the DNC, this whole related context demands “things to argue about” – vehemently, but not in the MSNBC/CNN-style of Scripted/Pre-approved Talking Point Presentations – fulfilled upon Staged Productions.
“And she’s quick to pronounce the DNC innocent of actions, including her own, that are . . . widely known.”
Right there, we have a bottom line, a core, and the overriding Truth.
Yet, he immediately follows this up with two sentences which destroy his and the article’s entire credibility:
“Still, Brazile is right on the particulars. And it’s hard not to admire her courage, book promotion or not.”
Just literally sickening: “it’s hard not to admire her courage” – while discounting the PR campaign for a Book Tour ($1 million dollars profit?).
Here’s an example of Donna Brazile’s courage:
Further Acts and Scripts – In The Name of Jesus Christ and God:
Quote: “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not stand here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.”
Next: “Don’t re-litigate the past.” “This time around, I couldn’t agree more. Let’s litigate the future instead.”
Yes, “We must look forward, not backward.” Wait! That sounds so familiar! And, did that mentality help us to right so many critical wrongs that were done on the world stage – thus, actually enabling them to exponentially propagate?
Then: “A reformed Democratic Party should” blah blah, blah = As If!
Why “As If?” For one among multitudes:
“The DNC picked a bunch of sleazy lobbyists as superdelegates, can’t figure out why no one is donating.”
Within Controlled confines, nothing will change – beyond reworkings of Scripts, Narratives, Presentations, and Staged Productions.

Remember an Alternate Headline:
Leaked: Outlined PR Plan for Worldwide TV Show
A Step by Step Production:
“today and tomorrow we use” – “Monday and Tuesday we can pivot” –
“throughout next week and next weekend” – “Then we start a theme”
How much of what I see, hear, and read is . . . Controlled?
To what extent? How far under do those Narrative tentacles feed?
How long has this been going on?
And, what more does this “Leak” actually tell us?
Then, don’t be surprised by an eventual Final Act Production Note:
The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’ […] ‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’ he continued. ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’
In a series of Narrated Setups: First, Star Chamber interests decide what directions and actions are needed to fulfill what has been chosen for implementation. Next (after successful steps), many months (or even years) beforehand, they dispense Talking Points to concerted operatives, pliable/collusive publications, and fronted or “reliable” “news” sources. Then, the people are (sold) “informed” incrementally as to what is inevitably upcoming. Thus, under the guise of Facts simply being reported, it works (exceedingly) as a well-timed machine.
