THE FAKE NEWS EPIDEMIC (AND HOW TO CURE IT)
"In order to understand your life and your mission here on earth in the short time you have, it is imperative to learn to see the thought prison that has been built around you, and to actively circumnavigate it. Free-thinking is being stamped out by the propagandists, but our human tendency is to crave freedom, and with the aid of truth, we are more powerful than the control matrix and the invisible government." - The Waking Times
The most obvious things aren't always the most apparent.
So forgive me for stating the obvious; The vast majority of American's news and ALL media content and information that we consume and digest through our minds is controlled. It's not a leap by any stretch of the imagination to say that what and how we think, about the information we are taking in, influences and shapes our worldviews.
While this in and of itself is concerning if not downright frightening when we consider the influences peddled to us on a daily basis are filled with slanted one-sided journalism and even outright lies, it isn't this alone necessarily what should make us fighting mad. What should draw our ire, however, is that Progressive Democrats control the vast majority of all media and education. They are who now shapes the worldview of millions of people in this nation while parents are losing influence like never before to media and culture.
Oh, and their point of view is not that of your father's Democrat Party.
There are no longer any "conservative democrats" in the Democratic Party, at least on the national level. This is made easy to understand by just realizing this one example; zero Democrats in either the House or Senate voted to cut taxes. Zero. They are supposed to be the party of the poor and the middle class, out fighting against the evil rich corporations and standing up for the little guy.
Of course, if you are the mainstream media, it is hard to fight against the evil corporate conglomerates, when you, in fact, are part of an evil corporate conglomerate.
In reality, they have become the Party of illegal immigration, open borders, abortion on demand, LGBTQXYZ rights, a socialistic economy, gun control, rewriting American history, and the vastly unsettled science of man-made global warming.
And speaking of evil conglomerates, most readers probably know by now, that there are 6 mega-corporations that control about 90% of all media in this nation. But what is rarely if ever highlighted is that they are Leftist organizations that support Democrats almost exclusively.
How far left are Democrats in the media? Well just recently we learned that NBC-owned digital media company Buzzfeed has an editor that tweeted this just a few weeks ago:
But I digress. The fact of the matter is, the MSM walks in lock-step with the Democratic Party. If you are already paying attention, as I suspect you are if you come to this site, it isn't breaking news to you that the MSM is the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. We see this truth every day we turn on the news...and very often in multiple forms of media; Social media, television shows, magazines, films. It is monolithic in its reach and it is incessant.
Additionally, according to statistician Nate Silver, only 7% of the media identify as Republicans. Back in March of this year, in his article "There Really Was A Media Bubble" where he tried to make sense of how in the world all of the media got the election results so wrong, including himself, Silvers wrote:
"The political diversity of journalists is not very strong, either. As of 2013, only 7 percent of them identified as Republicans (although only 28 percent called themselves Democrats with the majority saying they were independents)."
Don't let the rhetoric that the majority of journalists are independent. This could be true in what their voter's registration cards declare, but not in the political policies they support or the candidates they bolster.
In 2016 the Center for Public Integrity did an analysis and determined that:
"Of nearly $400,000 given to the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump campaigns from journalists or people identified as working in the media, a staggering 96 percent has gone to benefit Mrs. Clinton"
Their analysis went on to say:
"About 430 people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism — combined to give about $382,000 to Mrs. Clinton through August, the analysis showed.
Meanwhile, Mr. Trump’s campaign attracted just $14,000 from about 50 identifiable journalists over that time period."
This isn't just head-exploding insanity- this is .....and I am not being dramatic.....a serious threat to our Republic and our rights as a free people. What we are talking about here is propagandizing the American people to THINK a certain way through deceptive means in order to get them to ACT according to their agenda. Whose agenda you may ask? The agenda of the Progressive Democrats who run the evil conglomerates that own the media that propagandize We the People.
And they must be stopped.
The playing field must be leveled.
The cure? The cure is the truth. The cure is either turning them off, which many do but not enough. There are still tens of millions of Americans that are influenced daily by liberal propaganda through these propaganda factories they call news media. We must stop complaining and start demanding that we get news coverage that isn't news almost exclusively from Liberal or Progressive Democrats.
The cure is continuously calling out and exposing the simple and undeniable truth that ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the Washington Post, the NY Times, the Huffington Post, Politico and 90% of all the rest DO NOT HIRE CONSERVATIVES IN ANY MEANINGFUL WAY. Until conservatives are hired in proximity to a 50-50 split, millions of American's will continue to only hear either one side of the story for the most part....or stories so twisted, slanted and fallacious that a liberal agenda will continue to be forced upon Americans.
This type of needed change will only be possible by the continuous exposure, that virtually NO CONSERVATIVES ARE HIRED BY MSM, on alternative media platforms.
Change must be forced through presenting facts that this is indeed true, and relentless shaming. This combined with what many are already doing, which is turning them off, will make a difference.
Why aren't conservatives clamoring for this one specific truth to be exposed that is thwarting our 1st amendment right?
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
The American people are being played like a fiddle through these Media conglomerates.
This is about keeping the freedoms we have by restoring the hijacked Freedom of the Press.
