Media Matters 2

Typical mainstream media protecting the left's foolish illegal immigration narrative. Another example of fake news. 

This Democrat nails Democrats and the mainstream media.  Quote: "Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio show, author and University of the Arts professor of humanities and media studies Camille Paglia railed against the current state of journalism in America.  Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover."  
So very true.  Quote: "Instead the media promotes their agenda, whether man made global warming or Russia hacking the election. Accepting at face value a UN official asserting that the world is doomed unless the US throws trillions of dollars at a mythical problem. Or that Trump and his people are plotting and scheming with the Russians based on the word of some nameless faceless anonymous source.  The credibility of the mainstream media is already in the dumpster after incessant and unproven allegations about Trump. It seems climate change allegations are a convenient side show allowing the media to catch their breath over the latest supposed Trump scandal, pivoting to chase another phantom story for a few days Unless journalists don’t really care about honesty and good reporting. Instead pursuing ratings and social media followers with their latest outrage, attempting to advance the leftist agenda that the Democrat party can’t sell to voters."
Caught with their pants down once again publishing fake news and later having to retract them.  Dishonesty is rampant with leftist media outlets.
This is not a media with decent motives.  Hateful is more to the point.   Another example.  Quote: "It's hard to determine whether some liberals are tone deaf or just downright mean. MSNBC hostess Joy-Ann Reid almost certainly falls into the latter category." And, "Reid's shameful behavior of criticizing someone when he can't get to a microphone to respond immediately is nothing less than bullying. But her shocking conclusions about what constitutes "extremism" are very telling and show us why Democrats will continue to lose elections."    Given that the shooter agreed with Reid's point of view one has to wonder if she agreed that representative Scalise deserved to be shot.  If so, she is no better than the shooter.  From her words it is clear that she does not consider herself to be an extremist.

This is an extremely good indictment of the New York Times.  Quote: "This past Thursday the New York Times vomited up a hit piece on little ol’ me – a guy who has been doing stand-up comedy for nearly 20 years and thought maybe that comedy could be used to inform and inspire audiences, rather than just make fun of the differences between men and women. At first when you’re the center of a smear job, you’re annoyed and frustrated. But as I read further through the piece, I realized it was a master class in how to write propaganda for one of the most “respected” news outlets in our country. I’m actually grateful it was written about me because now I can see with my own eyes exactly how the glorious chicanery is done. I count no less than 15 lies, manipulations, and false implications in this short article, a score that even our fearless prevaricator-in-chief Donald Trump would envy. So here now is a “How To” for writing propaganda for the New York Times – using the smear piece against me as an example. Guilt by Association."

MSNBC management should be ashamed of the conduct of its on-air employees, unless of course they do not care about legitimate reporting and commentary.  Its line up of hateful liberals is unbelievable.  Here is just one example.

This is not only an example of the intellectual dishonesty of the mainstream media but also points out the incoherence of the entire leftist/progressive Marxist based agenda.  Quote: After the attack on Muslims in London, the Washington Post and other mainstream media outlets couldn’t believe their luck. Only a little while later, a 17-year-old Muslim girl in Virginia was murdered in what appeared to be a hate crime. Were they really going to be able to write TWO front page stories about Islamophobia, one of which could surely be used as a direct condemnation of President Trump and his supporters? Were they really so fortunate as to have this happen only days after the other Virginia shooting, which was making liberal wingnuts look so bad? Oh, praise Allah, the narrative is back baby! So they ran with the story as fast as they could, blowing past the facts on their way to building a story that would once again give them the moral high ground. See, the problem isn’t leftist psychopaths, America. And the problem certainly isn’t Islamic terrorism. The problem, you see, are these alt-right, neo-Nazi, right-wing hatemongers and the president they support! Just look here. Just look at what one of these crazies did to this poor Muslim girl in Reston, Va.! It’s disgusting. Well, it was disgusting, we’ll give them that. Both the murder itself and the mainstream media’s desperate effort to jump the gun and make it look like a right-wing hate crime."  

Proof that media senior managers are forcing on-air reporters to censor certain subjects.

Here is the New York Times doing its usual thing.  Hiding truth that hurts liberals.

We started this piece dealing with CNN, we will end it with more.

Here is evidence that CNN is a borderline if not an actual treasonous operation. Their words and actions speak for themselves.  Quote: "CNN firmly believes that certain behavior inspires, provokes, and causes political violence — including assassination attempts.
Therefore, when CNN itself consciously engages in this exact same behavior, we know for a fact that their intent is to inspire, provoke, and cause political violence — including assassination attempts. You may choose not to blame CNN for Wednesday's near massacre. You may choose not to believe that words and images and rhetoric and conspiracy theories can be blamed for violence. Whatever. That is not my point. The point is that if CNN believes those things result in violence and then does those things, the network's intent is not in dispute."

It defies credulity to believe that this CNN executive meant what he said at a recent shareholders meeting.  The fact is he is a big part of the problem.

CNN caught again reporting fake news.  Forced to retract.  Why report lies in the first place - the truth always wins out.

CNN is so biased they cannot even read the clear tea leaves all around them.  These examples prove how incompetent they are at gathering, assessing and reporting "actual" news.  If you want to hear propaganda go to CNN.  If you want real honest to goodness news avoid CNN like the plague. 

This former CNN reporter spills the beans on the dishonesty that characterize their reporting.  Among other things she says, "But as Lyon reveals, this focus, unfortunately, isn’t on providing the truth about real-life crises and situations in many countries; in fact, just the opposite is true, as Lyon relates that in dozens of cases, CNN has provided a PR platform for dictatorial and despotic regimes that want to cover up their human rights abuses and instead broadcast propaganda."

This outfit will do anything to shore up its collapsing reputation.
