The term President Trump used to categorize CNN’s hack reporter Jim Acosta as Fake News is not only apt, but very descriptive of what is passed off as journalism today. I suppose these journalists think that what they report is being accepted by the public as reputable. In all fairness, reporters are human also, and mistakes can be made. Owning up, and correcting the story, does help restore reputations. However, when a supposed journalist makes the story about her/him selves, then their reputation is in question.
I don’t like being spoon fed the news. By that I mean selectively reporting news by either spinning the news, leaving out important information, or just not reporting stories. That’s not journalism, that propaganda. There are very few journalists that I consider honest, also there are certain news networks I consider fraudulent and dishonest.
It used to be that everyone got their news from the Big Three networks, ABC, CBS, NBC. Then came the cable news networks, CNN being the first. Then along the others, Fox News, MSNBC, and Headline News. Today, the rise of internet news networks are providing what the old technology has been failing to deliver, REAL NEWS!
Why do I call the news fake? Let’s start by looking at the obvious. CNN, that cable news outlet that infests airport terminals around the world. Abilio James “Jim” Acosta, a suppositive journalist with a proclivity for making the news about himself. Like many in the fake news industry, these ‘reporters’ don’t ask questions, they make accusations in the form of questions. It’s word salad with an attempt to take the President off message. If these clowns think the public believes these are hard, probing, questions, they are fooling themselves. The public is not as stupid as these reporters think. It’s rather insulting to our intelligence, and our duly elected President. Observe.
First words out of Acosta’s mouth, “I want to challenge you…“, that’s not a question, that’s an argument. It’s an accusation. Acosta went on to say that the illegal alien invasion heading to our southern border is not an invasion, but a caravan of migrants moving up to the border. So again, it’s not a question, it’s a confrontation over semantics. It is not Acosta’s place to correct the Commander in Chief, and use Acosta’s description of what is clearly an invasion of illegals.
Acosta’s confrontation with President Trump escalated to the point of disrupting the news conference. He was hogging the mic, refusing to stand down, and he continued to antagonize the President after he was told “That’s Enough!” Very rude, very unprofessional, very unpleasant. Acosta’s came across as a total jackass.
Other real journalists took note. Tucker Carlson at Fox News did a story on this incident. Oh, by the way, Fox News is becoming irritating to me lately. They used to be a standard of journalism, but several of their reporters are now becoming left leaning hacks. Carlson, is excluded from my list of FakeNewsFox reporters. Observe how a real reporter reports the news.
This level of unprofessionalism by Acosta is unbecoming of a journalist. It cost Acosta his hard-pass to the Whitehouse Press room. Deservedly so! I don’t remember Barry the Bullshitter Obama ever being harassed by reporters, but I do remember Barry illegally wiretapping a Fox News reporter James Rosen. Why? Because Barry doesn’t like hard, probing, questions. Barry likes questions he could answer in 20 minutes of filibustering gibberish. Barry refused to call on questions from Fox News reporters. The fake news media did not support Fox News when their reporters were discriminated against. In fact, the fake news media was a slobbering whore to Obama. Disgusting!
Note: The fake news media turned their backs on Tucker Carlson when antifa terrorists showed up at his property to threaten him and his family. Did Fox News support Carlson? Nope! Yet, they are standing with hack Acosta.
So now, CNN, the Communist Nutbags and Nimrods network, decided to sue the Whitehouse to return Acosta’s passes. Claiming removing the pass is a violation of Acosta’s 1st and 5th Amendment rights. When you invite someone into your house, and they get disruptive, you don’t invite them back. You cannot claim discrimination for boorish behavior. So what are the chances of a successful lawsuit?
To my disappointment, Fox News decided to stand with Fake News CNN on the lawsuit. At least there’s Fox Business that seems to continue with real news reporting. Special Report with Bret Baier has lost me. Mostly because of content in the show. Chris Wallace, the Sunday report is like watching Shemp Smith, which I compare to watching Rachel Madkow on MSNBC. CNN is just atrocious! Don Lemon is a racist, as with many others at CNN. I would say, both MSNBC and CNN are the most bias and manipulation of the fake news cable networks. Fox News is not far behind.
The Big Three networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, are equally as bias. All the news we see fit to tell you. That’s their mantra! We’ll tell you what we think you should know. That’s no different than Soviet style propaganda news.
The rise of internet news outlets are somewhat refreshing. CRTV which hosts Michelle Malkin, Mark Lavin, and Stephen Crowder. OAN (One American News) are two networks with impressive journalistic style. The Daily Caller (Tucker Carson’s publication), The Daily Wire (Ben Shapiro’s publication) Ben is a Never Trumper also, but we won’t hold that against him, because he’s honest reporting. Then there’s Dennis Prager (PragerU videos). These 5 minute videos are very informative and deal with many subjects in today’s society, including politics, and religion. Laura Loomer is a young, aggressive, hard nose reporter. I have been very impressed with her reporting.
There are many reporters that get right in where others won’t go. Take this example from Fleccas Talks. He’s a Ben Shapiro affiliated reporter Fleccas, as he wades into the crowd of antifa hard left fascists, to report face to face, with the enemy of the people.
Another note about Fox News, there’s an NPR racist that Fox hired and sits on the show called the Five, Juan Williams. He cannot go through a show without a swipe at calling white people racist. Williams does this all the time. This is annoying as hell. He lumps people by color into a racist category. Imagine if a white Fox personality categorized all black people as racist? That person would be fired on the spot. Yet Williams, gets a pass. CNN’s Don Williams did the same thing. April Ryan, same thing. The left has targeted white people, Christians, and Jews as targets of bigotry.
CNN has become easy with their reporters and guests using obscenities on their shows, with impunity. It is also a shame that the media has elevated a buffoon like Acosta to martyrdom status. As I said before, 90% of all reporters are leftists. They don’t believe in journalist objectivity. They don’t believe in Fair and Balanced reporting, and sadly, it seems Fox News is falling into that leftist category. It’s extremely disappointing. There are some Fox News shows I will not watch anymore, because of the content. If that’s the direction Fox News is going, then lowering my cable bill will keep an extra few dollars in my pocket. I don’t watch the other cable news channels for the same reason. Content is bias and directional.
What can I do? I can leave and find alternative news sites that are objective and thorough, and I’ve already started.
