In this Majority Report clip, after a brief stint at 'Trump TV,' Boris Epshteyn was questioned by the US government about possible Kremlin ties. Nothing fishy going on here folks! Just good, honest, local, Russian err... not Russian news. His employer, the massively conservative Sinclair Broadcast Group, owns most of the local news stations in the country. Tell grandma local news is poison.

"Until a few months ago, [Boris] Epshteyn was on the White House payroll. In addition to his special assistant position—which, per Politico, entailed “oversee[ing] White House officials who appear on television to speak on behalf of the administration”—he also served as communications director for the Trump inaugural committee and senior adviser to the campaign. There, the surrogate for America’s bully-in-chief developed a reputation for bellicosity. As the Daily Beast recounted, he’d pleaded guilty to assault in 2014. The House Intelligence Committee also wants to question Epshteyn, who was born in the then–Soviet Union in 1982, about his ties to the Kremlin. In March, not long after the Jewish staffer had crafted the notorious Holocaust Remembrance Day statement that omitted any mention of Judaism, he left the Trump administration amid reports that everyone at every cable news network hated him. A month later, Sinclair scooped him up as a pundit. Now he’s Trumpism’s chummiest salesperson, an everyman touting a #MAGA fantasy.

I realize that  people really can't help their accents, but this Boris guy has one of the most annoying speaking style that I've ever heard.   Hello monotone.

Not my grandparents, thank goodness. They were always liberal.

Yeah, my great grandmother was a server and busser at a cafe in Manhattan where Emma Goldman used to go, and they shared literature. I have - in a file folder somewhere - a couple letters from her to my great grandmother. I knew stuff like this about my (very politically active) family growing up, but when I saw and held these letters for the first time, I have to admit, my eyes welled up, my fists clenched, I was 19 again, with a gas-mask on and a backpack full of rocks. I feel bad for people who have a bunch of racist right-wing family-members, and they think this is so normal (because in most of the US, it probably is) that they talk about it like everyone has at least that one nutty uncle who watches fox and hates immigrants. I feel so lucky that I don't have that. I have relatives who aren't nearly as radical as I am, but not fox-watching, bigoted fuckheads. I very much prefer THIS benefit over being born into a WEALTHY family. A wealthy right wing family would've disowned me by now, or at least wished to keep me hidden. They sure as hell wouldn't have sent me money-orders in prison for 3 years.

LMFAO at 2:00, "there's going to be a NEW approach to dealing with the media."

I'm a Grandparent. I have never watched Fox News to increase my knowledge of the world, nor have I watched any network televised news cast or discussion panel since about the time of the Reagan Presidency. It became increasingly clear that TV news casts and sponsored debates were advertising and spin tools being used to persuade Americans that authority should remain in the hands of those already in control of vast amounts of resources and capital. The minute I heard that wonderful stream of urine out of Reagan's and other self promoting economists mouths, I knew we were destined to be pissed on in every facet of our lives. The Trickle Down theory of Economics. I equate it with the Scrooge Theory of Economics. "Are there no Workhouses, no Institutions, no Prisons? If they'd rather die than go there, then let them do so and decrease the surplus population."
To roughly paraphrase Dickens. We, the millions of us in the US and throughout the world, are the surplus population, and our government is the mouthpiece of the owners.

I thought he went to prison. We're still waiting? Oh, come on already, Mueller.

He has a Russian accent...

11 months ago

N. Zhiv I lived in Italy for a time, and they couldn't tell whether I was American or English. Is it the same for you? I mean if you spoke Russian you would have an accent (I think) that you were an English-speaker, would Russians know whether you were from the U.S. or England. Of course, if you haven't been to Russia, then you would not know. Just curious.

11 months ago

snakeguy76 Yes. As someone who was born in Soviet Russia in '86 but grew up in New York, he has a Russian accent. I don't. This means he speaks equal amounts of both languages; so Russian is still infuencing his English consonants. Oh, and coming to a new country after 12 years old means you'll always have a lingering accent. Something linguists have found. Has to do with brain plasticity.

Is that what you call it?

I remember trying to warn people about this when my local news channel was taken over by fox news and we started to get special programming like:

SECOND ADMENDMENT  under attack, what you need to know.and

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY  being taken away??

What's with the ageism? I'm a 68 yr old grandmother in the midwest and I am surely not the only boomer who rarely if ever, watches main stream media!! The Real News Network , Democracy Now, Majority Report,among others, comprise my news.

I have a Sinclair broadcast affiliate in my hometown. This segment airs every night after the 10 o'clock news. I don't like this at all. This man is crazy and has a right wing agenda when the news is supposed to be transparent and objective.

11 months ago

Well Just because they say that doesn't mean that it is true. The Bottom Line is This. That Boris guy talks about current issues from a conservative standpoint. Not all of it I agree with, but it is not all facts either.
