Are the sussexes now free from media manipulation and should we move on? It is very important for the supporters of the Sussexes to realise that, although they have chalked up major successes in the last few months since setting up base in California, there are still people out there in the news media and ordinary folks – trolls – doing their dimmest to halt their progress. One would think these nutters would leave them well alone because they are no more Senior Working Royals and out there to make a living as human beings, but that would not happen.
Those of us who see the constant manipulation of news about them and various attempts at sabotage, should not relax, continue to be vigilant, to point these out and condemn vigorously, as the Sussex Squad Podcast does valiantly every week and in YouTube posts almost every day.
The Sussexes are major news across the globe, as we all know. They have cut off the British media completely, so every news reported about the Sussexes is second hand by courtesy of US news media. However, cruelly it is heavily twisted with a clear intention to manipulate their readers and present an alternative version of the truth. But why do they go to these sinister lengths to try to sabotage the Sussexes? These are just privately-owned newspapers and ordinary daft journalists, so what is their beef with the couple? What is in it for them and their owners? Is it access to the Royal Family they hanker for? They already have that, so what is it?
One cannot skip the various motives that drive these people. We should remember that it is not only the tabloids, but two serious newspapers and some right-wing radio shock jocks are also involved. Even the BBC, which proclaims itself to be non-partisan, is now firmly in the Sussex hate camp. Three motives drive these editors – failure to cower the Sussexes to kowtow to their bidding; stop them from outshining the Royal family; to report negatively and keep out news of Andrew’s ongoing stalemate with the US FBI at the request of the Monarch – are clearly to be seen by any impartial observer.
On the day, the Sussexes confirmed their contract with Netflix after the news broke in the New York Times, all the British news media knew nothing about it and therefore published nothing. However, by the following day, the news was emblazoned on front pages across all the newspapers and needless to say the whole wide world. They chose in their different ways to cover the news by giving false figures of the worth of the contract. Netflix and the Sussexes have not revealed how much the contract is worth, but the British news media took it upon themselves to put figures on it, though no one knows the exact programmes they signed for. Others took the vile route to announce to their right-wing readers that the Sussexes did not inform the Royal Family, as they had agreed to uphold the value of the Monarchy.
Others made up stories that the contract would be reviewed by the courtiers at the palaces, as the exit agreement stipulated that any commercial activity would be subjected to vetting. These were lies, of course. The minute the Queen rejected the 50/50 split of the Sussexes services and announced to the waiting world that after March, they would not represent her anymore, the die was cast. The Sussexes were out of the Firm and by their lonesome selves. There is no obligation whatsoever to subject their future and the work they would do to a bunch of men and women at the palaces who know absolutely nothing about work outside of their zones. In any case, it was never a requirement in the agreement announced to the world. Perhaps they were expecting them to fail and return to the fold to face more emotional abuse.
The Netflix contract is but one of more to come in due course. Since April, the Sussexes have begun to put together experienced staff with knowledge of the world, they want to work in. These professionals have to be paid for the day they are employed. Administrative costs have to be paid for, so one contract does not end what they can achieve and give employment to people.
There are trolls, which I am sure some British journalists are part of, who when they hear the Duchess of Sussex is about to give a speech or join a discussion, would attack vehemently the website or send poisonous letters to abuse her and the organisations involved. This is all to intimidate the organisations, future companies that are interested to work with her, or stifle the Duchess’s potential to earn money. These are cowards, stupid, and cotton-wool brained half-human beings. Why would anyone use their precious time to engage in that, if one is not brain dead? Even animals are very smart not to do that.
This week Camilla Hound Dog Face Tominey used the standard advice sent out to potential hirers of speakers on their list to make propaganda about the Sussexes. In the bold banner headline, she and the Daily Telegraph highlighted that as exclusive of what the Sussexes have stipulated as their request to any potential company or institute that wants them to give a speech. In a way seeking to portray them as impossible to work with. As with everything this ex-tabloid journalist put out, it was a lie and nothing to do with the Sussexes. But if it was meant to damage them, she put that out there for anyone who wants to run with it, to do so.
It is therefore dangerous and self-defeating to think aloud that because the Sussexes have signed a Netflix contract, their one-sided fight with detractors is over and should move on. It is not and would be ongoing. As long as their very presence in the world attracts so much attention and overshadow those ‘left behind’. With the launch of Archewell and the lessoning of COVID-19 in most of the world, they would be more ‘in your face’ with their own official visits, events, etc., to the chagrin of those stupid half-human trolls, those ‘left behind’ and their silly enemies in the news media, British and non-British alike. We have to remain vigilant and hit back extremely hard when necessary. They are not free from media manipulation so we cannot and should not move on 😩😩!!
I thought it pertinent to mention that the September issue of British Vogue was a complete flop. The duplicitous Editor in Chief tried to repeat the success of the Duchess’s ideas, but without her golden touch and having sold her out, this issue has fallen flat with a big thud. I wonder whether he can recover from that. It was an awfully bad faith the way and manner he treated the Duchess. Maybe, he wants to be awarded one of those meaningless medals handed out to gullible citizens by the Queen every year.
