Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow’s Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption details the tricks the media use to contort every story to fit their fixed agenda— also known as the rules to properly decipher the New York Times...

The first tip: “Anything that can be politicized, will be politicized.”...

... this practice — of promoting “good” narratives” and burying “bad” ones, goes far beyond story placement. There is a method in the articles themselves, as Breaking the News reveals:
 
  •  Within a given article, information that confirms the paper’s preferred narrative is to be featured at the top of the article, ideally in the first sentence.
  •  Within a given article, information that rebuts a preferred narrative or confirms an undesirable narrative is to appear deep in the article, or not at all.
  •  An article’s “hero” should be anyone who advances the causes of globalism, wokeness, skepticism of America and its values, and/or political leftism.
  •  Additional unofficial “hero points” are added or subtracted based on the hero’s race, sex, sexual orientation, and/or socioeconomic status.
  •  An article’s “villain” is typically anyone in the article who advances the causes of nationalism, conservatism, or traditional American values.
  •  A villain can also be someone who is insufficiently outraged at those who do not embrace modern woke leftism.
  •  When someone is a villain, their race, sex, sexual orientation, and/or socioeconomic status are mostly irrelevant unless they can be used to portray the villain in an even more unfavorable light.
  •  Heroes need not be actual heroes; they can simply be victims.
  •  Heroes get glamorous “hero shot” photographs when possible.
  •  Villains get unflattering photographs, or none at all.
  •  Errors are acceptable, so long as they do not hurt the cause of globalism or modern woke leftism.
  •  rrors that portray a preferred narrative negatively or an unfavorable narrative positively are never to be made. Ever.
  •  Corrections are to be published discreetly, deep within the paper, if at all....
