Curiously, many American news outlets are running a story based on gossip or guesses about the actions of Vice-President Mike Pence. It is unclear whether the American people understand when they are being used a rumor mill multiplier, and it should send fact-checkers wild, but it passes as newsworthy, and that is where we start this article.
Watch how I cite my theory; this is called journalism.
Setting the tone, getting our mindset right with journalist Paul Sperry, who identifies himself as a “former D.C. bureau chief for Investor’s Business Daily, Hoover Institution media fellow, author of several books, including bestseller INFILTRATION :
Politicians of both parties are corrupt, FBI leaders are corrupt, FBI attorneys are corrupt, federal judges are corrupt, major media are corrupt, elections are corrupt (and you can blame George W. Bush for chief justice Roberts). Washington is nothing but a den of vipers now.

And I want to add that the Media is corrupt; look at Yahoo News:
“Mike Pence is reportedly making plans to form a political committee,” Yahoo News reported on Monday.
They then report on what they feel points to a potential run in 2024 in three bullet points.
According to Yahoo News:
- Mike Pence is expected to announce a new political committee within weeks, NBC News reports. Â
- By starting a 501(c)4 organization, Pence could maintain useful donor relationships.
- Pence is said to be considering a 2024 presidential run.
So Yahoo picked up a storyline that was pimped out by Business Insider and NBC news, and there is no source.
Personally, I am not sure what to make of Mike Pence, I don’t have enough information to make a professional call on what happened on the 6th, so I can’t talk about that with any authority. I am disappointed that he couldn’t do something to help the country, but that isn’t news.
With that said, look at how Yahoo, which is considered news, validates their feelings:
“Former Vice President Mike Pence is said to be making plans to form a political committee, signaling his intention to remain a relevant political player after serving in the Trump administration.
NBC News says Pence will announce the move in the coming weeks.
The political committee would be a 501(c)4 organization allowed to participate in politics by purchasing ads, for example. These types of organizations are classified as social-welfare nonprofits, according to the IRS, and must not spend more than half of their funds on political ventures.
The goal of the 501(c)4 would be to outline and push Pence’s “consistent conservative philosophy,” an unnamed source told NBC News.”
American, have you had enough of the gossip and unnamed sources? What separates this gossip from something someone might read on a social media message board?
Where are the fact-checkers? What would be the rush to push out this story before there are any facts? Perhaps Pence is going to run, we can’t really say.
Is it possible this story is being run to cause a division between Pence and President Donald J. Trump, who faces a historical battle in the DC Kabuki Theater, set in the “Well of Congress,” where DC insiders are plotting a major storyline that casts Trump as the villain who everyone hates?
Can you hear the staged “booing” yet?
It is time we begin eyeing the US Government and its PR Media machine, the mainstream media.
The upcoming impeachment trial is little more than a movie. Let’s make sure we understand our media sources because the gaslighting is about to get real.
