Keith Olbermann joins the ranks of those who made predictions regarding Donald Trump’s political trajectory which uncannily have turned out to come true. In this clip, we’re reminded that last November before the election, Keith disagreed with those who, when the launch of “Trump TV” was announced, speculated that it was a strategic preparation for a post-election loss Trump media operation. Keith can be a little “over the top” on occasion, but hearing his last November warning in light of today’s news is chilling. Fast-forward nine months and Kayleigh McEnany, after leaving CNN the other day, is now the voice of the “Real News” which appeared on Trump’s Facebook page yesterday. Is this the beginning of a state approved “official” version of the news?
Last 11/3 we posited “Trump TV” wasn’t his “fallback.” It was a prototype for State Propaganda. It has now launched pic.twitter.com/AWuaI2yJfZ

We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
