Slate (Magazine)Posted 8 years ago under Uncategorized
Slate.com is a leftist daily online magazine founded in 1996 that offers dogmatic, editorial and highly opinionated commentary about politics and current event news. Slate uses witty banter to push consistently for Big Government, genetically modified food consumption and allopathic medicine. Owned by Graham Holdings Company, Slate is a member of Amazon Associates, selling products of all kinds, favorable or not. Slate has received awards for digital media “excellence” and participates in “Gabfests” that have won podcast awards. Slate was created by a former editor of New Republic, one Michael Kinsley, which was all formerly under the ownership (at least in part) by Microsoft and MSN. In 2007, Slate V was introduced as an online video magazine. Now managed by the Slate Group out of New York City, with an additional office in Washington DC, Slate is not fundamentally a breaking news source, but rather aimed at influencing readers to interpret and take ownership of the editors’ left-nut view of the world. Slate receives enormous amounts of criticism from professional Journalists and Reporters around the globe.
The slippery slope of Slate’s “pitches” and their supposed “counterintuitive” arguments
With the aim of logic appeal, Slates “pitches” are undercover attempts to use counterintuitive strategies to spread propaganda about their viewpoints on certain subjects where mental coercion can take place for mass audiences. In Slate’s retort to this criticism, they call their pitches simple branding, but a closer look reveals not only arguing for the sake of arguing, but playing the devil’s advocate in order to stir up propaganda and discussion of that propaganda is not genuine or authentic journalism (or reporting) in any “shape of the word.”
Slate has several blogs also that make more of their counterintuitive points to suit their umbrella agenda of Big Government, Big Food and Western Medicine. Those blogs include but are not limited to:
- The Vault, Slate’s history blog
- Future Tense, a technology blog produced as part of a partnership between Slate, the New America Foundation and Arizona State University
- Brow Beat, Slate’s culture blog
- Wild Things, Slate’s animals blog
- Behold, Slate’s photo blog
- The World, a blog about foreign affairs
- Moneybox, Slate’s business and economics blog
- XX Factor, a blog about women’s issues
- Lexicon Valley, a blog about language
- The Eye, a design blog
- Crime, a crime blog
Actively Promoting Lies is BIG BUSINESS for online Magazine Slate
Vaccine salesmen have a name: shills (2). In America, parents with young daughters are waking up to the fact that the HPV vaccine, the human papilloma-virus, is more or less a scam, and is dangerously loaded with carcinogenic, neurotoxic chemicals that cause many teenage girls to go into convulsion within minutes of inoculation, some end up in comas after anaphylactic shock wears off, and some wind up dead. Still, somehow, ridiculous news outlets like Slate.com are now actively promoting lies in response to a study’s findings. Slate editors and writers are STILL claiming that HPV vaccines have yet to be linked to serious side effects, and that parents are rejecting it for “mysterious” and “invalidated” reasons (sic). According to a recent study published in the journal Pediatrics, more than 15 percent of parents in 2010 rejected HPV vaccines, such as Cervarix and Gardasil, citing MAJOR SAFETY CONCERNS. This rejection was below 5% in 2008. Something major happened. The number of “side effect” cases became such a financial detriment and was threatening the whole operation with exposure, so the slush fund and the vaccine court handle the rest – which is shutting up the parents of the victims with large cash payouts and agreements that they’ll never speak of it again, not on talk shows, not to lawyers, not anywhere or anytime. There IS reliable research available now, and Gardasil CAN cause many deadly side effects, despite the lies of mainstream media, like Slate, the Washington Post and the New York Times. (1)
According to data compiled by SaneVax, Inc., the actual number of serious injuries and deaths caused by HPV vaccines is FAR HIGHER than the “adverse events” that remain as “reported.” Gardasil has since been exposed for manufacturing a toxic stew of deadly chemical adjuvants, including genetically modified DNA fragments (GMO) that cause the human body neurological damage that can easily result in paralysis, coma, and death. The HPV vaccine has NEVER been shown or proven by its manufacturer (or the CDC for that matter) to provide ANY legitimate protection against cervical cancer. None of this matters to the writers and editors of Slate and the Slate Group, who have an agenda that may be confusing to the reader, but not them.
The Dr. Oz “letter” – Slate supports Monsanto’s evil agenda to continue dousing US food with Roundup’s deadly glyphosate
When Doctor Oz was attacked in a defamatory letter after he did a show that exposed glyphosate – Monsanto’s #1 weed killer Roundup – and told the world that the World Health Organization, WHO, classified it as a probable human carcinogen. Probable of course means you MOST LIKELY will DIE of cancer if you eat it regularly, which is what about 70% of Americans are doing right now, eating GMO glyphosate-ridden corn, soy, wheat and more. Slate was there to cover the story – all wrong, again.
The Slate headline blared: , “Letter from Prominent Doctors Implies Columbia Should Fire Dr. Oz for Being a Quack.” – – This based on a letter by a group of doctors (none from Columbia Univ.) who want Columbia University to relieve Dr. Oz of his position as vice chair of the department of surgery at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons.” The letter went on to say, “Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to the genetic engineering of food crops.”
Slate wants you to PRESUME that Dr. Oz is already a quack (a liar and medical fraudster) and then start thinking about whether or not Columbia University should fire him. But Slate calls this style of writing their branding and their pitches. It’s like having a mission statement where your organization does the exact opposite of what it says it does very well. The physicians who wrote the letter called themselves distinguished, but some of them were convicted felons and had nothing at all to do with Columbia University, but rather have deep financial ties to the Biotech, GMO food industry. (3)
Herein lies the collusion of the chemical-agriculture industry with the lying mass media, like Slate.com, that represents their agenda while trying to sound witty, catchy, or any other adjective that stimulates dissonance, conversation, and finally brainwashes the sick Americans who buy all the wrong food, wrong medicine and read the wrong news. And those are the folks who ultimately shove their hard-earned money into industry “Big Wig” pockets, for decades. Call them clients for a shortened, expensive, chronic care life.
Slate’s Push for GMO food is propaganda for sickness – Slate criticizes Chipotle for going 100% Non-GMO
“There is a lot of debate about genetically modified foods,” says Chipotle founder and co-CEO Steve Ells. “Though many countries have already restricted or banned the use of GMO crops, it’s clear that a lot of research is still needed before we can truly understand all of the implications of widespread GMO cultivation and consumption. While that debate continues, we decided to move to non-GMO ingredients.”
Meanwhile Slate tries to discredit the importance of not eating chemicals such as pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and dangerous, carcinogenic fertilizers. These GMO biotech-made “Frankenfoods” (as health enthusiasts refer to them) are banned by most countries around the globe, but not where the FDA and CDC are run like businesses that collude with genetic modification “specialists” who lobby in Washington DC with billions of dollars. Now that Chipotle is being BOLD (4) and removing pesticide food from their entire repertoire, the biotech shills that write articles for the Washington Post, Vox.com and Slate will join forces with the Monsanto Discredit Bureau to try to rain on the parade created by Chipotle for being the first essential “fast food” joint to have NO GMO, ever.
Slate is there to inform the public about the ” … Terrible French GMO Study” which proved on a short and long term basis that GM soy and corn fed to rats caused horrific cancer tumors to develop and kill most of the rats very early in their two year normal life span. Female rats especially were dying inside of three months. The French Scientist Seralini and his Team of researchers did everything by the book and the study was criticized by mainstream media and peer review boards (more paid shills of biotech industry). Slate shills still complain about “Political Fallout” from the Seralini cancer study that blew the whistle on GMO toxicity and carcinogenic corn and soy that Americans take so much “pride” in.
Now, by going 100% Non-GMO, Chipotle is proving that eating “fast food” doesn’t have to be detrimental to your health. They are getting a wave of positive feedback and mass business support from the organic communities. Chipotle is basically announcing that GMO-free foods ARE healthy and the science of biotech is a big fraud. Nobody should be consuming chemical pesticides, not even as a small portion of their food. Americans are waking up to this reality fast.
Peer review science and the allopathic Slate
The biotechnology debate relies on informed decisions and proper education to understand what society and the environment are really engaging. Monsanto, the King of biotechnology, sends out bad journalists to muzzle legitimate scientific discourse and warp any discussion of toxic pesticides (like Roundup) causing auto-immune disorders, Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease and central nervous system disorders. Long term, peer reviewed science that has NOT been retracted is available, just don’t ask WebMD, Wikipedia or Slate search engines for any help. Slate will tell you “No. You shouldn’t fear GMO corn,” as Slate interviews a plant geneticist, also known as a planted shill who lies about health and environmental effects that have RESULTED from commercialization of genetically engineered crops, or “Frankenfoods” like US corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets (MSG).
Slate supports anything Biotech, tested, untested – doesn’t matter. Slate supports Bayer’s Crop Science, and Dow and Dupont, and BASF and of course Monsanto. Anything that contains toxic pesticides slate will endorse, write cheery articles about, and liken to the best thing since sliced bread. Food “science” has gone backwards and involves an insidious process of infusing the genes of toxic pesticides into the DNA gene sequence inside the seeds of American crops – – and this has been going on for thirty years, a cold, hard fact MOST Americans do NOT know a thing about.
If Slate is supposed to be reporting the news, the politics, and the research with points of light that they want people discussing and considering, why would they go way out on a limb again and again to support felonies, toxic food and toxic information that besieges the public with misleading and brainwashing propaganda? Money. Unfortunately for Slate and fortunately for news readers, Slate has lost nearly all credibility for reporting ANYTHING based on all of this.
Slate makes FALSE CLAIMS
Planned Parenthood (PP) is deep in the mire as they’ve been videotaped negotiating cash for aborted babies and their organs on the “black market” of their secretive underground negotiating that’s happening with top-level executives, per TWO separate videos that have emerged and gone viral. Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council, is seen in the undercover video trying to get top dollars for baby parts coming from an employee of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) who faked as a rep from a “start-up biotechnology firm.” (sic) Slate writers followed up with articles and posts on their website about PP’s great commitment to science and that any woman who donates her baby to science is doing a great thing.
But do these would-be-mother’s even know their babies are being chopped up and sold in pieces, including organs, tissue, entire babies in some instances, and who’s making the money again? Extortionists, abortionists, politicians, biotechnology firms, or the President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council? Video proof is quite powerful in court these days. Will all the would-be-mothers step up to the plate and sue? Doubtful. Do they have grounds to sue? Slate doesn’t care. Science is in full swing, and so is the shameful corporate advertising on Slate.com. Slate encourages the selling of body parts and human organs on the black market, even as it is a felony to do so.
“Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying,” states Gatter, clearly familiar with the negotiation process. When the undercover CMP representative asks her to throw out a number, Gatter responds, “Well, you know in negotiations the person who throws out the figure first is at a loss, right? So …” The video clip is available for viewing here. It currently has over 1.2 million views: https://youtu.be/MjCs_gvImyw
The other video showed Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Research, discussing with another undercover CMP representative how aborted baby tissue is routinely sold by Planned Parenthood for profit. Where are the felony charges? The current democratic administration supports the biotech industry and chemical allopathic medicine, so they simply don’t mind, besides, Planned Parenthood is all part of the Big Government mission.
Welcome to the abortion-for-profit industry Slate supports
“Planned Parenthood’s top leadership had admitted they harvest aborted baby parts and receive payments for this,” stated CMP’s Project Lead David Daleiden. That means they admitted to a felony crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to half a million dollars, per offense. So, as Planned Parenthood goes down in history as a human chop shop operation that murders and exploits unborn babies for profit, we can expect that Slate’s editors and writers will go “down with the ship” – the slow-sinking Titanic. At least the abortion-for-profit industry has been exposed for these heinous crimes against humanity. Committees in the US House and Senate are calling for investigations and several state governments are filing suit against PP. (6)
To top it all off, Slate writers had the nerve to lie and say none of this was true about Planned Parenthood and that they basically support anything that they do with these babies for science. (7) It must be that scruples and real journalism don’t exist at Slate but the writers are still getting paid. (8)
Slate’s leftist loonies
Left-wing politics are political positions (or activities) that support social “equality” and involve “concern” for those in society who are “perceived” as “disadvantaged.” Plus, left-wing politics supports the belief that there are unjustified inequalities that must be “reduced” or “abolished.” The term Political Left dates back to the French Revolution, referring to the seating arrangement where the leftists opposed the monarchy and supported the revolution. How things have changed! The term left applied later to socialism, communism and anarchism during the 19th and 20th centuries. Leftist loonies believe that the government should be DIRECTLY INVOLVED in the day-to-day workings of the US economy. Do you need your government nanny state to baby sit you and tell you how, when, why, what, where and how much it will cost you? If so, follow Slate news. Do you want to give complete control to the bureaucrats, the globalists, the bankers, the biotech shills and the cancer industry of chronic care management? If so, follow Slate news.
