Just when I thought the Left had no sanity left within them, one of them comes out and makes one of the most idiotic claims we’ve seen this year… and that’s really saying something.
Less than a week after ABC News’ Brian Ross reported fake news about candidate Trump ordering Michael Flynn to contact the Russians (as a reminder, he made that order after he won the presidency), CNN reported fake news that Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., received an e-mail containing sensitive material about Hillary Clinton that was discovered by Wikileaks. CNN reported that he received that e-mail on September 4th, 2016, before some of the information in that e-mail was published by Wikileaks.
But it’s since been discovered that the e-mail was sent on the 14th of September, at a time when the information within that e-mail had already been shared to the public.
That report was an obvious attack on the President and a way to fuel the “collusion” story, much like Ross’s fake news story was. And one of the funny things about it is that Manu Raju will not be punished like Brian Ross was because according to Brian Stelter: “[Raju] followed the editorial standards process. Multiple sources provided him with incorrect info.”
How is not checking the validity of the source or info considered following standard editorial process? If he got the date wrong, he either didn’t read the e-mail or didn’t read it carefully and thoroughly. Is that CNN’s standard editorial process? What am I saying, OF COURSE IT IS!
This is the fake news media, after all. If any story against Trump or Republicans can be somewhat believable, then facts schmacts! They’ll run with that story.
Regardless, we return to the topic at hand. In a segment with Brian Stelter, David Frum, a CNN contributor, said: “…I would say, the mistakes are precisely the reason the people should trust the media. Look, astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them, because what they are offering [is] a closed system of ideology and propaganda.”
By that logic, Weinstein raping women is precisely why they should trust and support him.
Does he not hear the stupidity that comes out of his mouth? And then there’s what he said after the ridiculous claim.
“Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth”. Journalists (at least today) are as much scientists as Leonardo DiCaprio or Al Gore are. Their processes aren’t about discovering the truth. They are about HIDING IT. They are about ALTERING THE TRUTH TO FIT THEIR NARRATIVES.
Although, I’m glad he says what he said about Astrologers. They “never make mistakes… because they use a closed system of ideology and propaganda.” That’s precisely what the MSM is.
Since this latest blunder, CNN has yet to apologize for delivering fake news to their audience. CNN did correct the story, but they didn’t apologize for it. They didn’t apologize to their audience for reporting fake news and they didn’t apologize to Trump Jr. for spreading misinformation that could’ve damaged his image and reputation. Then again, I wouldn’t expect them to apologize for defamation.
Returning to Frum, he wasn’t finished making his plea for winning the “Dumbest Claims Made in 2017” award. Later, he said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort – their overzealous effort to be fair to the President.”
You mean to tell me everything they’ve reported about the Trump-Russia collusion, the sexual assault allegations, the ridiculous claims of bigotry and their narrative that Trump’s so insane he is guaranteed to start a nuclear war with North Korea has all been IN FAVOR OF THE PRESIDENT?!
What kind of upside-down land of the missing brains world do you live in that you think the media is trying to be FAIR to Trump? Seriously, this guy, who once claimed to be Republican, is in the company of the most public serial liars so much that he himself believes the b.s. these people share. And does so with PASSION.
So much passion, in fact, that he’s gone completely insane. You HAVE to be if you fundamentally believe that the reason people should trust the fake news media is precisely BECAUSE they lie and get things wrong all the time.
I’ll be honest, I’ve been trying to follow his kind of logic. But seeing as to how I’m not a massive imbecile, I can’t follow it. Earlier, I made the comparison that, following that logic, women should trust Weinstein precisely because he rapes women. You can also say that, if you cheat on your spouse, your spouse should trust you PRECISELY because you cheated.
How anyone could honestly believe what Frum just said is beyond me. How anyone can take him seriously is beyond me.
But I’m happy and glad to see a blabbering idiot in this situation. The fact that he said something so outrageously mindless when discussing a botched story by CNN shows you the reality of the fake news media. They’re scared to the point of mindless blabbering.
Scared that they truly have lost their monopoly on news-sharing. Scared that most people in the country don’t trust them anymore. Scared that, with these latest and highly talked-about blunders by the news media, some of the people they thought would trust them no matter what may begin to question them on occasion.
To point out the obvious: No Mr. Frum, people don’t trust the fake news media because they are fake. They certainly shouldn’t and certainly don't for that reason.
The fake news media has been lying to the public long before Trump was in the picture. They’ve been exposed in recent time and their credibility is long gone. Botching stories in the manner Ross and Raju did certainly doesn’t help them.
And the best part is that they’re not going to stop. The fact that they continue lying and occasionally getting caught in the act is what helps Trump and conservatives in the long-run. Since just about everything that comes out of their mouths is a lie, they’re easily countered with facts. With the truth. With logic.
I’ve said before that if the Republicans really wanted to defeat Democrats at nearly every turn, they could. All it takes is knowing your stuff. Learning the facts. Pointing out the lies the Left tells you. And sometimes, the Left makes it rather easy to counter what they have to say, as you could see from this article.
All Republicans need to do is tell the truth, back it up with facts and point out the lies of the Left and attack them for it.
Fox News could OBLITERATE CNN, ABC and every other news source out there if their entire cast was filled with conservative truth tellers and not the occasional Never Trumper *ahem* Shepherd Smith *ahem* Chris Wallace *ahem*.
Unlike what Frum believes, people trust news sources that don’t lie. That’s why the Left is in total shambles, or at least that’s one of the reasons.
Much like with the fake news media, people just don’t trust the Left anymore… well, the majority of the people, that is. The Left’s credibility has only suffered in the last few years, but especially so this last year.
Hollywood icons people thought to be godly are proving to be anything but. The Democrat Party has no one to be their next champion like Obama was or Hillary, to some extent. And the media has been called out for their constant altering of the truth.
The Left is in shambles and they have no one to blame for it other than themselves.
