One thing I have learned of late, even way before Trump got elected, was to never, I mean never ever, believe anything you read, either on the internet or in print. There is no level at which a writer, no matter what forum, will not stoop to advance an agenda. Not just a leftest thing, both sides do it. The semi honest (curve grading at it’s finest) will start off with the provocative title then buried in the third paragraph attempt to explain his spin, with the usual response of ,”You’ve got to be kidding?”
I could pull up about a million examples of dishonest leftest trope designed apparently to further a narrative and influence the gullible, but I found one on the right yesterday that was just text book.
Here is the headline “MSNBC: Donald Trump Will Kill Us!”, sounds pretty sinister, then you watch the video, and you want to smack the writer for making such an outrageous leap.
Especially on the internet, vetting anything you read is so important for anyone who wants to stay informed. I found this the other day;
16 Fake News Stories Reporters Have Run Since Trump Won
Journalists, media types, reporters, you have two choices: you can fix these problems, or you can watch your profession go down in flames.
Most of these lies we are familiar with but what is interesting is that this list came out when Trump barely had that many days in office, so about one fake news story a day.
I made a comment the other day that the levels of Trump Derangement Syndrome has surpassed anything we witnessed during the last 8 years. That loony bat Maxine Waters already yelling for impeachment, story after story about chaos in the WH, 12,000 plus assassination tweets, is it just that they are sore losers? What else can explain their “unhinged” nature?
It is clear that the MSM is the de facto muscle of the dems, their enforcement arm for spin and indoctrination, that their job is to chip away at the level of competency of the opposition, to erode support and foster an environment of chaos and confusion, but do they have to be so blatant about it?
Cress made the mistake the other day of thinking liberal tears was only payout cherished by the Trump win. Anyone who values honesty, decency, and fair play cheers when evil doers get their comeuppance. When reckless drivers get pulled over by the cops, when criminals are caught and jailed, and bad actor dishonest politicians get caught and publicly shamed, it gives the rest of us honest folks confidence that justice does exist in the world. Ditto with the press, when they get called out on their dishonesty, lose credibility and suffer lost prestige or loss readership, it provides symmetry and order. It also metes outs justifiable consequence for the evil doer. Lying and respectable journalism can not co exist, even in today’s rancorous political climate.
