DOWNING Street has admitted it has lost “media control” due to the rise of new widely popular populist news websites like Politicalite.
The Government is worried about our “Pro-Brexit, anti-Islam, right-wing populist” narrative, according to US political site Politico.
And get this, Number 10’s press office is monitoring whats read online – and sites like ours are ranking high as “the most popular” in conversation and via shared articles.
In a sinister twist, Number Ten employs officials to “tackle what No. 10 sees as a rising risk, to the government politically and to the country as a whole” what is that risk? Politico asks; it’s “the rapid rise of new populist news sites pushing conspiratorial, anti-establishment content outside the channels of traditional media.”
Number 10 is actively trying “scare away” the more than 500,000 monthly readers sites like Politicalite hold.
Like Gaviscon (New System of Far Right Paid Advertising) fights indigestion and acid reflux, Downing Street is said to be “firefighting” stories that set their heartburn alight on social media.
They even hold meetings to discuss content online, chaired by the prime minister’s Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell or deputy JoJo Penn.
Three times a day a media summary is distributed inside No.10, setting out what is dominating the traditional news outlets and online publication, just like a digital version of the “Zeitgeist Tape” from The Thick of It, to ensure the Maybot appears like she is ‘in touch’ with the likes of you and me.
They admit how out of touch they are by describing outlets like Politicalite and PoliticalUK as “barely known to anyone in Westminster,” and say sites like Politicalite have become an “issue of mounting concern in No. 10.”
Politico reports that “According to one U.K. government official involved in the briefings, the sites include publishers of viral content like LadBible and Joe.co.uk, as well as political sites like the Canary on the left and Westmonster on the right.”
“Increasingly, they also include a new breed of hyper-partisan news sites associated with the populist right, Politicalite and PoliticalUK.co.uk, they say we have “seemingly surged from nowhere in recent months to occupy a dominant position in online conversations.”
The populist right-wing media is “huge” in Britain, our stories on Tommy Robinson, Islam and Grooming Gangs eclipse the numbers for mainstream politicians such as May, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and even Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Tory MP Damian Collins though thinks “This is a really big problem.” you know, like the once-upon-a-time in touch and non-PC ‘offensive’ right-wing tabloids Politicalite modelled itself on, before they were taken over by leftie Editors. #BringBackDarce
…. that’s because The Once Great Mail and the now Eclipsed by Metro-Sun backed the Establishment whilst pretending to back the working white van men and middle-class housewives in Suburbia.
We’re staying REAL, we havn’t sold out to the SJW agenda, and unlike The Daily ‘Tits n News Bits’ Star and Express-ing-DOOM, we don’t run sensationalist stories on ‘World War 3’ and MH370 – that (Private Eye 1485) claims formerly Trinity Mirror – now Retch, sorry Reach PLC admits is the bedrock of those online outlets – (P.S…. how was the Mirror + lipstick Star balloon btw, was it OK!) #SellBackToDirtyDick
Our articles rack up thousands, sometimes tens or hundreds of thousands, of clicks, likes and shares, and we are transforming Britain’s media landscape, becasue we report the truth.
NO LONGER IN CONTROL OF THE NARRATIVE… THE ELITES TURN ON THE SITES THAT GIVE THE WORKING CLASS A REAL VOICE
NUMBER Ten monitors the viral stories working-class sites like Politicalite produce, they think we are a threat, but we’re just reporting what people want to read about.
They’re now trying to defund us – just hours after Politico’s story was released – so-called ‘Not Evil’ Google suspended Politicalite’s advertising citing ‘Policy Violations’ – We have decided to carry on despite our articles now making barley ZERO revenue to help us operate and pay writers – because one of our main missions is to report truth.
Number 10 is rattled by the Alt News revolution, that’s produced by young media-savvy folks, from the heart of working-class Britain – why? because they can’t control us. We don’t meet with grovelling leaders pre-election so they can gain our endorsement, we simply back the people.
We’re like the tabloids – only our only special interest is the WORKING-CLASS PEOPLE – we report what they’re talking about – and guess what! THAT SELLS!
Like Citizen Kane’s “Declaration of Principles, Politicalite penned a set of rules known as the “Politicalite Mission” when we began in April 2017.
OUR MISSION FROM APRIL 9th 2017:
To provide a platform for undiscovered non-mainstream writers and citizen journalists. (CHECK)
To make sense of the crazy political revolution that is Populism. (CHECK)
To give a voice to the silent majority. (CHECK)
To say what the mainstream media refuse to say. (CHECK)
To expose slimy politicians and those that mislead the electorate. (CHECK)
To get Britain WOKE on Politics. (500,000 engaged readers? CHECK!)
At the turn of Millennium it was claimed by Media experts that three things sold Tabloid Newspapers: Diana, Jordan and Big Brother“… back then, the working-classes were spoon fed ‘distraction’ content like the Roman Gladiatorial fights the Elites of Rome used to distract the people from the crumbling empire.
Number 10 thinks sites like ours are a threat, the ‘Conservative’ Government sees “Pro-Brexit views, anti-Islam rhetoric and, right-wing populism” as something to be worried about, maybe they should start tackling those issues instead of selling 17.4m people down the river and ignoring Radical Islam, Grooming Gangs (that still ravage Britain) maybe then, ‘Populism’ wouldn’t be a thing.
The British Government is trying to fight us, and destroy us – working-class people – instead of listening to what we say, we simply give the punters what they want to read about, that’s Brexit, Islam and Right-Wing Populism.
Populist news outlets simply reflect what’s ‘popular’ in the working-class psyche and boozers across the nation.
Yesterday, I visited the House of Lords to report on an event to back Grooming Gangs, finally – after months of feeling ‘detached’ from Westminster Politics- I suddenly had faith in the system.
Hours later, the system revealed they were ‘fighting against’ outlets like mine, that is the real tragedy.
