The leftist cartel that runs the mainstream media is so disgusting with its corruption and selective outrage. This is a crucial time in history where America needs a free and independent press to hold the gargantuan government accountable, along with making sure the American people have the straight story about whats going on in this country. Instead of a balancing fourth estate to be a check on government we have an outrageously biased establishment media that has an outright disdain for the president. This cartel of disgusting outlets will do anything to sell their agenda to the American people regardless of the harm it brings to the best country on earth.
Recently, there was a horrendous mass shooting out of a hotel window above the Las Vegas Strip. The shooter, Stephen Paddock, had 23 legal guns in his hotel room and wreaked havoc on the concert crowd below. He killed 59 people and injured hundreds more. We still have no idea why the shooter did such a thing, or if anyone else was involved or how Paddock got so much money. Instead of asking the real questions, the media discussed gun control, the NRA, and how white people are evil. Once the story fits their narrative, the investigation ends for the media.
The media always capitalizes on these mass shootings because they can easily be incorporated into their narrative, and people are extremely upset over them and wonder what can be done. This is horrible for policymaking, good policy should be good at any time, not just when people are upset about something. The media highlights the attacks with high-powered rifles, yet if they really cared about being honest about gun homicides, then they would report that handguns are used far more to murder. That is rather inconvenient for the media, it is difficult to garner public support for a handgun ban. It might also lead to a conversation about the outrageous number of murders in minority precincts that happen to be controlled by Democrats. That narrative simply will not do, therefore, the media is outraged only when it works for them.
Also this week, California became a sanctuary state to protect illegals from the “evil” Trump administration. The media loves this, as the state is fighting the Trump administration while protecting illegal immigrants. The media consistently lie about immigration while they advocate for a borderless world. It is easy to garner emotional support for people who come from horrible countries, especially when they are apprehended by “heartless” authorities. Then the media totally overlooks the annual cost of 135 billion dollars for the American taxpayer for illegal immigration while complaining incessantly about a 20 billion dollar walli.e. to mention the media’s silence about our 20 trillion dollar debt. The media also love to say that Trump is the real threat to illegals while totally ignoring the people smugglingthe same illegals into the country. Because of these coyotes, Mexico now has more murders than Afghanistan and Iraq. Despite this, the media still advocates for open borders while hiding the real facts from the American people.
The leftist media also pretends to be the ultimate protector of minority communities but then lambastes anyone who wants to put restrictions on abortion or pull public funding of Planned Parenthood. The media get away with this by withholding the inconvenient facts in any abortion news coverage. It is largely unknown that Planned Parenthood was founded to exterminate defective babies, which at the time included blacks. Planned Parenthood even admits their founder advocated for this in front of the KKK. It is safe to say CNN will not be doing a special on the topic anytime soon. Most news coverage of abortion also leaves out the fact that Planned Parenthood specifically markets to minority communities and successfully exterminates an outrageous amount of babies of color. The media pretend they are all about women’s health but still slam Republicans foroffering to increase funding for other women’s health organizations in exchange for defunding Planned Parenthood. Again, the media leave out the facts to promote their narrative no matter the effect it has on real people.
This pattern becomes has become particularly obvious over the last decade as the media ignore any successes of President Trump and President Bush while ignoring the failures of President Obama. Regardless of who is in office, the media need to report the whole story and let the people decide rather than advocate for whatever leftist cause is convenient that day.
