With the World Economic Forum in Davos in full swing, and media muppets suggesting that things like the forum’s “Great Reset’, banning gas stoves, and eating bugs are nothing more than conspiracy theories cooked up by conservatives, it seems that the national media – both large and small, is now fixated on the event in order to take cues from the world’s increasingly insane ‘elite.’
Former New York Times editor Jill Abramson suggested that the event – which was previously given little coverage by the ‘paper of record,’ was – and is, “a corrupt circle-jerk.”
“I noticed (after I was gone), much more ‘news’ coverage in the Times of Davos, quoting the attendees and speakers at those endless panels. Of course, the coverage was a sweetener to flatter the CEOs by seeing their names in the NYT so that they would then speak at high-dollar NYT conferences and – of course – get phony news stories from the conferences into the paper.”
“It was — and is, a corrupt circle jerk,” Abramson told Semafor EIC (“Buzzfeed”) Ben Smith.

And while the WEF has tamped down prognostications involving bug-eating and banning gas stoves, it’s still extremely creepy.
As Michael Snydersuggests in The Most Important News, Davos may have even reached “peak creepy.”
Why do people think that it is creepy that a group of “select human beings” have gathered in Davos, Switzerland to shape the agenda of the entire planet? Could it be because many of the attendees are horny aging narcissists that truly believe that they are “saving the world”? During the day they listen to speeches about diversity, equality and inclusion, and then at night many of them pay young women to perform degrading sex acts. But since they have lots of money, they are able to pay the “sex workers” very well. Of course a lot of them flew into Davos on carbon-spewing private jets, but then they have the gall to lecture the rest of us about turning up our thermostats a little bit too much in the middle of the winter. Sadly, no matter what these elitists do, the mainstream media will continue to portray them as “saviors” that are justifiably telling the rest of us how to live our lives.
