The “biased, liberal, fake news media” just can’t help themselves. Their “spin” on EVERY issue is so negative towards our President, and it is so painfully obvious.
Their coordinated propaganda disguised as “news” isn’t fooling anybody anymore, except the few mindless liberals that may stumble across their channel and can’t see the truth, or those who don’t want to see the truth, and are complicit in the “fake news” narrative.
As I have pointed out before, well over 98% of Americans don’t pay attention to any news, much less “fake news,” but it does get annoying and, on principle alone, it should not be allowed to go unchallenged.
Let’s define and “dig in” to “fake news” a little bit, however, before we continue.
First of all, “fake news” is nothing new. There are references to “fake news” in newspapers and political cartoons dating back to the late 1800’s.
Wikipedia (a free on-line encyclopedia) says that, “‘Fake news’ is a type of “yellow journalism” (journalism that is based upon sensationalism and crude exaggeration) or propaganda that consists of deliberate disinformation, or hoaxes, spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media.”
“The term is also, at times, used to cast doubt upon legitimate news from an opposing political standpoint [in most cases from the liberal standpoint], a tactic known as ‘the lying press.’ The false information is then often reverberated as misinformation in social media, but occasionally [actually much more often than occasionally] finds its way to the mainstream media as well. Fake news is written and published with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity, or person, and/or gain financially or politically, often using sensationalist, dishonest, or outright fabricated headlines…”
“During and after his presidential campaign and election, Donald Trump popularized the term “fake news” when he used it to describe the negative press coverage of himself. In part, as a result of Trump’s use of the term, the term has come under increasing criticism, and in October 2018 the British government decided that it will no longer use the term because it is ‘a poorly-defined and misleading term that conflates a variety of false information, from genuine error through to foreign interference in democratic processes.’”
Chalk one up for the “fake news” in Britain! The “fake newsers” there managed to have the term “fake news” taken out of their lexicon. Somewhat similarly to how Barack Obama took the term “radical Islamic terrorists,” or ISIS (preferring ISIL) out of his and the preferred liberal vocabulary.
We also have to acknowledge that there is a whole other aspect to “fake news,” which is “fake news” by omission.
This is the practice of “looking the other way,” or disregarding news or events that do not go along with the “biased, liberal, fake news media’s” intended storyline.
You have to give these propagandists some credit. They never give up in their efforts to control the message.
That is why “We the People” can never go back to the days when we grew complacent and allowed them to get away with it.
It’s so transparent, and almost comical, how the “biased, liberal, fake news media” tips its collusion with one another…, and the democrat party, of course.
They do this by their use of any number of liberally approved “buzzwords,” which get bantered around, all on cue. For example:
“Gravitas” – I’m calling this “mother of all buzzwords.” This one was used so shamelessly, and unendingly, to describe George W. Bush’s apparent lack of experience, or knowledge to become president, as opposed to his opponent, then Vice-President Al Gore.
“Undocumented immigrants” – This phrase is the left’s attempt to make “illegal immigrants” sound better, more politically correct and more acceptable.
“Disenfranchised” – This is an interesting one. This buzzword can be put to use in many instances. It is used to describe people who are unable to take advantage of an opportunity, benefit or anything, for any number of reasons.
“Microaggressions” – This is a relatively new buzzword. Brandan Kirby, of the Polizette section, on the “LifeZette Life. Explained.” Website, says, “This sounded liked a joke when it came into popular usage a few years ago. But it is anything but funny. Originally attributed to psychiatrist and Harvard University professor Chester Pierce in 1970 to describe insults against African-Americans, the term has been expanded in recent years to apply to virtually every aggrieved social group. These “microaggressions” are any little comment that could even remotely be perceived by someone as offensive somehow. For example: By saying, “America is a melting pot,” you may make an immigrant or immigrants feel pressured to assimilate. Another example comes from one our esteemed universities, and their “Guidance on the Equal Forum” website at the University of North Carolina, which advised that telling a woman “I love your shoes” constituted a microaggression. The goal of promoting the concept of “microaggressions” is apparently to paralyze speech in general, and provide anyone the chance to be offended by anything!
“Universal” – The word “universal” applied to or added to another word or phrase implies socialism, something being “socialized,” or pertaining to socialist practices.
“Dog whistle” – This a relatively new buzzword as well, but one that has definitely been making the rounds as of late. Again, according to Brandan Kirby, of the Polizette section, on the “LifeZette Life. Explained” website, “This refers to seemingly neutral words that actually are “super-secret” coded messages to racists and other contemptible people [according to liberals, of course].”
“[Just as only dogs can hear a dog whistle] The only people who seem to be able to decode [or hear] these messages, though, are racists, liberal pundits, and left-wing activists!”
For example, the words “law and order” are “code” for taking away the rights of blacks, say those on the Left.
It’s a strange and twisted world we live in ladies and gentlemen.
We can see here again, the goal of promoting the concept of “dog whistles” is apparently to paralyze speech in general, and provide anyone the chance to be offended by or accused of anything!
President Donald Trump, to his credit, routinely calls out the “fake news media” at all of his political rallies, during impromptu press conferences, and during a recent interview with Laura Ingraham of Fox News.
“When talking about how he has labeled the media and press as an enemy of the people, he told Ingraham, ‘You have news out there that is so fake’ and added that he has a lot of supporters that know the media is lying. ‘I watched Meet the Press this weekend, everything was so falsely put,’ he said.”
The President also recently tweeted:
“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!” – (@realDonaldTrump)
“The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!” – (@realDonaldTrump)
Chuck Todd, the moderator for the show “Meet the Press,” responded to The President, in a tweet:
“If you actually believe media is the problem then the last thing one should do is respond with your own hate and anger… Try leading; try setting an example; Try living by the mantra “two wrongs don’t make a right.” But then that would mean cutting back on stoking the division.” – @chucktodd)
So, let me get this straight, Chuck. If we believe “the media” is the problem, we should just ignore it?
And “two wrongs don’t make a right” unless the “biased, liberal, fake news media” are the ones responding to President Trump, and not vice versa.
Also remember that Barack Obama routinely attacked Fox News and conservative media without the “biased, liberal, fake news media” ever making as much as a peep about it.
And lastly, “stoking the division” in our country is your middle name Chuck. You along with the rest of the “biased, liberal, fake news media.”
Please remember that President Trump is not only the first president, but the first politician who has had the guts to stand up to the “biased, liberal, fake news media,” and call them out for what they are: anti-American hypocrites and card carrying members of “the swamp.”
There is no shortage of undeniable examples of “fake news” on virtually a daily basis. So denying “fake news” is just another example of “fake news.”
Stay thirsty my friends, but please don’t drink that liberal Kool-Aid!
