Contemplate this Newsweek cover.
Democrats are busy crafting a “narrative,” polite word for “BS,” that they lost the election because all them ordrinary dum peple in America were tricked by “fake news” into voting for Donald Trump instead of “Careless” Clinton. By “fake news” they mean news provided by persons and organizations other than the Democrats’ paid henchmen who insist on calling themselves the mainstream media.
Like Newsweek, for instance. They’re pretty mainstream. Dig that cover.
Okay, sometimes a newspaper has a file of stories already written that can be plugged in, in a hurry, if something happens. Stories with headlines like “Everybody Dies!” So they were all set to go, celebrating a Clinton victory.
Only this was not the first time they came out with a cover revealing their–shall we say “fanatical”?–bias. Dig this one.
It takes a special kind of stupid to liken a sleazy, good-for-nothing politician to Jesus Christ Our Lord; but it’s just that kind of rarefied stupidity that our “non-fake news,” our utterly discredited mainstream news media, have to offer. And this can be explained theologically.
People who do not believe in God–secular utopian liberals, say–have to believe in something: so they believe in, and worship, themselves and their leaders. People who do not believe in God, naturally, have no hard and firm grasp of truth as truth. To them, “truth” is only whatever benefits them politically.
We are told that Newsweak has tried to “quickly distance itself” from that Madam President cover. I don’t know how you distance yourself from your own magazine.
But I think I really do know “fake news” when I see it–and brother, this is it.
