America is NOT a FREE NATION: MSM is Controlling America's Thinking and Political Narrative
"Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right."
America is supposed to be a free country. But when it comes to the free flow of information and thinking freely, we are closer to tyranny than we are to a free people.
This is painfully obvious to anyone who cares to, well, cares to think for themselves. But that is becoming harder and harder to do in America.
Once again this was painfully obvious to me just this morning in the span of one hour.
I had DVR'd last nights "Hannity" and listened to Joe Concha from The Hill report this:
"When I watched the three evening broadcasts last night, and I watched them all, in all their packages they left out half the story. What's half the story? Deductibles going through the roof, premiums going through the roof, insurance companies opting out. Why is that important? Because the narrative became yesterday after the story, that the bill passed in the House was that Obamacare is Utopian, Eric. That there weren't any cost problems, that insurance companies weren't opting out. So when you present it against a healthcare bill that we don't know exactly what its going to end up looking like but you say it's horrible because it doesn't cover everybody and everything like the old bill and you leave that out, that is the bias of omission."
Concha begins at the 2:27 mark
The healthcare bill may or not be a perfect bill, but We The People have a right to be informed truthfully about what it is and what it isn't. But the Left, and I am speaking not just of the MSM, but also the Democratic Party are hell bent on giving America only one side of the story and portraying that as the truth.
Democrats have once again gone full "scorched earth" on Healthcare like they have done repeatedly for the last 8 years, but have managed to increase that 100-fold since the election.
Without offering any facts to support her claim, Elizabeth Warren joined a gaggle of Democrats Thursday warning Americans about the House bill saying:
“Trumpcare will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die. Disease, sickness, and old age touch every family. Tragedy doesn’t ask who you voted for.”
Representative Suzan Delbene (Democrat Rep-WA) again with no evidence to support her proclaimed:
“House Republicans passed dangerous legislation that would cause 24 million people to lose health care and strip protections for the 133 million Americans with pre-existing conditions”.
Where do you think the push back is from a fair MSM? You won't find one. The Boston Globe headline yesterday was: "Obamacare repeal is based on racial resentment".
This is exactly how they control the narrative, and this is how they control what American's think and feel on issues, and not just on Healthcare.
It is subtle mind control that chips away daily, like the proverbial frog in boiling water, at the thoughts of the sheeple, influencing and molding, especially our youth.
When media can influence what we think about an issue by under reporting the truth and bias, is it any wonder that a new poll has found most American's want not less government, not more freedom, but less freedom and more government?
I also recalled this morning that ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN have boycotted Trump's television ad that highlighted some of his accomplishments over his first 100 days. Something I am sure the White House felt they needed to do precisely because the networks will not talk about his accomplishments, but rather ignore them, downplay them and refute them. This is the controlling of information and therefore controlling what we think while presenting a false narrative. The only freedom of the press here is the freedom to conceal. Not exactly the spirit of the 1st amendment. Just like when CNN's Don Lemon said we should boycott the President's tweets:
They have even managed to create a false narrative, droning on and on how Trump is a puppet of Putin...with no hard evidence at all, nor will the publish a single positive opposing point of view on the issue. Meanwhile the press DID NOT vet Obama or Hillary and all their many ties to Russia, the Obama administrations spying on Trump or other extremist views, of which there are many.
Also, first thing this morning I found myself in the op-ed pages of the New York Times reading an opinion article on Ivanka Trump. Okay, I get that it is the left-wing NYTimes and I get that it was an opinion piece. No problem. But when I went to the comment section and read over 100 comments, they were ALL in agreement of the article. Not a single dissenting voice which seems to me rather impossible. So, I decided to add my dissenting opinion. When I tried, I was met with a automatic generated response that my post would be looked at and approved for publishing. 4 hours later, it still hasn't been approved, but dozens more comments have been added since then, none of which offered a single dissenting opinion. This is opposition control. This is influencing the thoughts of readers to believe that there is no one dissenting with a brain.
The Left does not like nor want a dissenting voice because it disrupts their narrative(s).
Think it is just a coincidence that Fox News, the only dissenting voice in TV news, is under such attack since the election?
Think it is just a coincidence that Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos were shut down completely (and in the case of Yiannopoulos shut down violently) from speaking at Berkeley?
Think it is just a coincidence that Google, Facebook, Twitter and others have shut down and shut out conservative voices from being heard (and paid) from their platforms?
Think again. Think for yourself.
