Our United States Constitution is a precious document. The supreme law of these United States. Crafted in careful thought and planning, imperfect, but amended for repair. However, there are those that abuse their Constitutional rights. The so-called ‘Free Press’ is one such example of the media abuse. There have been publicized reports by the media that are completely false. Here’s a link to 16 fake news stories that went viral after Trump’s election, there’s been many more since. There’s been very little retractions on these fake stories.
It is no secret that the majority of the media, over 90% of the media, are leftist propagandists. The media is nothing more than an arm of the democrat party which has moved hard left. Often times sanctioning anarchy and violence in the streets. There have been plenty of examples, but little of no condemnation of such acts of wanton destruction. The leftist media often reports such violence in a sympathetic light.
When President Trump speaks of restoring law and order, the media often makes the argument that President Trump want’s to take your first amendment rights away. It’s a deliberate distortion of what the President said. The democrats, and some in the republican parties, have echoed this distortion. It is what further divides this nation.
This abuse of journalistic responsibility has only been getting worse. Many of the younger journalists coming out of schools have been taught by hard left professors that have no respect for journalist integrity. Instead of reporting news, they are offering opinion journalism. That’s not objective news.
It used to be the only source of news was in the written newspapers, radio, and the big three news television broadcasts. Before that there was the Movietone clips shown in theaters. Since then, cable news has grown, but the fair reporting has increasing become more bias and distorted. It’s given rise to citizen journalists and smaller outlets where real objective, non-bias reporting can be found. However, too often reporting has to be triangulated for accuracy. Many reporters have become lazy and just forward on stories without verifying accuracy.
If the media is to keep it’s credibility, then it needs to clean it’s act up. Too many in the profession want to be advocacy journalists. Too often the media isn’t interested in fairness and accuracy. Which is why the rise of fake news has become such an epidemic.
Here’s an example of advocacy
journalism hypocrisy by one of the largest, and oldest, media outlets in the country. NBC News collected a handful of children to voice a protest against President Trump. You can see this is not spontaneous children voices, there are the parents of these kids parroting a false narrative. It is a deliberate lie to generate fear. It is child abuse. It is racism at its core.
- “Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re gonna hurt some of us blacks.”
- “You are here, attempting to white-wash America.”
- “I don’t like your definition of American, because I don’t seem to fit within it.”
This is deliberate racism, false information and journalism malpractice. It is the reason why President Trump said this country was divided long before he was elected. This is despicable, but it won’t be retracted. Lying with impunity.
