THE FAKE NEWS!

The mainstream media has been described and labeled many ways.

They’ve been called “Fake news.”

They’ve been described as having a liberal bias.

They’ve been called “liberal propaganda.”

And they’ve been described as the “communication arm of the Democrat National Committee.”

All with good reason.

It wasn’t long ago that we were debating the existence of a “liberal bias” of those within the mainstream media.

Well, the debate is over.

The bias exists, and the mainstream media won’t even bother to deny it anymore.

In fact, we are way past “bias” at this point.

We are at a point where the mainstream media has chosen to abandon any sense of objectivity, and have become co-conspirators and operatives of the democrat establishment.

Don’t believe me?

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Evening newscasts are 150 times more negative toward Trump than Biden, study says.”

‘“That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action,’ Rich Noyes [MRC research director] says.”

“The evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC have been 150 times more negative when covering President Trump compared to presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to a new study.”

And that’s only the major networks!

Can you imagine the negativity if CNN and MSNBC had been included?

acover 11

That number may well have been 250 times, 350 times, 500 times “more negative when covering President Trump compared to 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden!”

“The Media Research Center [MRC] analyzed all statements made by reporters, anchors and nonpartisan sources, such as experts or voters, made on CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” from June 1 through July 31.”

“The findings showed that Biden has received eight positive evaluative statements with only four negative comments made about the former vice president in a two-month period. But when it comes to Trump, the study showed that coverage has been overwhelmingly negative.”

“CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” made a whopping 634 negative evaluative statements about Trump over the same time period, according to the study. The evening newscasts made 34 positive statements about the president over the same time period.”

“MRC research director Rich Noyes, who conducted the study, feels that ‘millions of viewers are witnessing the most biased presidential campaign coverage in modern media history.’”

Without a doubt, although 2016 was nothing to sneeze at either!

“Noyes noted that ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts focused 512 minutes of airtime on Trump over the two-month sample, which is nine times more than the 58 minutes spent on Biden.”

‘“I’ve been studying the news media and elections for more than 35 years. Trust me — there’s never been anything like it,’ Noyes wrote. ‘Do the math, and viewers heard 150 TIMES more negative comments about Trump than Biden. That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action.’”

“{President] Trump regularly blasts the mainstream media for what he feels is unfair coverage and recently accused Biden of avoiding tough questions from reporters.”

‘“If you consider the evening newscasts a reliable gauge of the liberal media at large (cable news, big newspapers, etc.), it means Biden has enjoyed an army of so-called journalists conducting a massive negative information campaign against his opponent, while he is sheltered from any scrutiny,’ Noyes wrote.”

Again…, no doubt.

‘“Controversies from the spring, such as allegations from former staffer Tara Reade that he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, completely disappeared from his evening news coverage in June and July,’ Noyes added.”

“As a result, Trump said on Monday that he ‘has no choice’ but to campaign during the Democratic National Convention because Biden gets preferential treatment from the media.”

acover 16

‘“We have a guy that doesn’t come out of his basement and the media covers [for him],’ Trump said on during a phone interview on ‘Fox & Friends.’”

‘“When they ask me questions, I have these people, there is fire out of their eyes … they’re asking me questions and I see the fire is burning in their eyes,’ Trump said. ‘I look at some of them and say, boy, how can you have so much hatred?’”

“Trump then said Biden doesn’t have to deal with the same type of hostility from the press. In fact, the Democratic nominee doesn’t have to deal with the press at all.”

‘“He doesn’t take any questions from reporters,’ Trump said. ‘Here I am getting bombs thrown at me every day by people that are totally, you know, frankly dishonest reporters, they’re espousing the view of the radical left, but here I am, bombs every day … but this guy doesn’t come out of his basement.’”

With all due respect, Mr. President, and I am saying “with all due respect,” Sleepy Joe did do a hard-hitting interview with rapper Cardi B (her real name being Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) the other day!

I mean, let’s give credit where credit is due!

If there wasn’t any negative news about President Trump there’d be no news at all!

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is just relentless when it comes bashing our president.

In an editorial on the “Investor’s Business Daily” website, they claim, “Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage of His Presidency: Study”

They continue by saying, “Anti-Trump Media: To say that the big networks haven’t exactly had a love affair with Donald Trump, as they plainly did with President Obama, is an understatement. A new survey shows that not only is coverage of Trump overwhelmingly negative, but the president’s biggest accomplishment — the roaring economy — gets almost no attention.”

No…, not “almost no attention,” NO attention!

“What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: ‘Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.’”

I would argue that even these numbers are a misnomer.  I would say news coverage is 92% negative, 7% is just “non-negative” and 1% or less are actually positive.

“Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations.

Let’s see, what’s missing from that list? Oh yes, the one thing that’s overwhelmingly positive for President Trump: the economy.”

In other words…, propaganda by omission.

“If we don’t report it, it didn’t happen, or it’s not important.”

Even when they report something of a positive nature, it always has to come with a caveat.

For example, here we have typical negative Trump headline by Joe Williams for FOX Business:

“US adds 75,000 jobs in May, far less than expected.”

Can we not just be glad that we added 75,000 jobs in May?

And what about the unemployment rate in the country that remains at 3.6 percent…, the lowest since 1969?  I haven’t heard much about that.

Propaganda by omission and the “but” news.

President Trump cut taxes for everyone, but…

President Trump has brought manufacturing jobs back to America, but…

President Trump is making NATO allies finally pay their fair share, but…

President Trump is making other countries deal fairly with us regarding trade, but…

But, but, but.

In addition to the “but” news, we also see bizarre, negative, fake news articles that just leaves you scratching your head.

For example:

“Washington Post columnist links Trump’s UK fashion choices to life missteps.”

By Bradford Betz for Fox News.

“If you can’t properly wear a tux, you’re going to have a lot of problems in life, according to Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan.”

trump neg 1

“Her 965-word, June 5 article dresses down President Trump, the First Lady– and to a lesser extent– his family – for what she called poor fashion sensibilities during an appearance the Buckingham Palace Banquet this week.”

“Givhan goes on to equate fashion with diplomacy. With this equation, Givhan’s concludes, we can gain subtle insights into the president’s mind.’

What?

The “fashion critic” feels the need to join in the Trump bashing as well?

It also appears that “the fashion critic,” an esteemed and necessary position in its own right, is also a qualified psychoanalyst!

Then we have another article published by “Yahoo Style UK,” titled:

“Disrespectful Melania Trump criticized for leaving sunglasses on during D-Day ceremony.”

Excuse me?

How is this this being “disrespectful?”

trump neg1306-donald-trump-dday.w700.h700

If anything, Yahoo is being disrespectful of the First Lady.

Then we have an article for the “Style” section of “The Daily Beast,” by   Alaina Demopoulos and Tim Teeman titled:

“Is That a Hat or UFO? Melania and Ivanka Trump Bid a Fashionably Fierce Farewell to U.K.”

Can you ever imagine these people taking pot shots at Michelle Obama’s wardrobe?

Of course not.

The article went on and on about all of the poor Trump fashion choices in their opinion, and finished off by saying, “The queen, meanwhile, looked her usual, utterly on-point distinctive self, in a wonderful hot pink coat dress and hat (with non-life-threatening brim), while imminently doomed British Prime Minister Theresa May donned a curious spearmint coat, with turned in collars, over white dress and a hat that was a complementary satellite dish shape to Melania’s UFO.”

So the bottom line is…, all of the fashion choices made by royals, socialists and liberals are exquisite, while those made by conservatives are horrendous.

Lastly, we have a typical “fake news,” “liberal propaganda” article by   Heather Timmons, titled, “Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas presidential poll.”

Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump in Texas?

Of course not.

They don’t tell us that the poll question that was asked was, “Who is the creepiest presidential candidate?”

In this instance, Joe Biden wins hands down!
