News Media Credibility Has Tanked

See the source image

Wow! A new poll reports 95 percent of American adults are “troubled” by the state of our nooze media today, and 67 percent expect “journalistic ethics” (LOL) to sink even lower in 2020 (https://www.thewrap.com/fake-news-fears-95-of-americans-troubled-by-current-state-of-media-poll-finds/).

The poll of 1,010 adults was taken by a “boutique PR agency,” whatever that is, called Bospar.

Are you surprised by this finding? Well, we’ve just been talking about how our whole nooze media in 2001 erased the news about all those people who danced in celebration, on rooftops and in streets, as the Twin Towers went down. It was an incredible feat of mendacity, to make that story go away. Before a year was out, you couldn’t find it anywhere. And for years afterward, nooze outlets denied they’d ever had video of those celebrations and nothing at all about it in their archives.

Never mind that millions of us saw it on live TV! To say nothing of eyewitnesses.

Next year you can be sure our free and independent media will be doing absolutely everything they can to put some Democrat wacko in the White House. They will lie, cheat, and steal to do it.

It would be good for us to rise to the occasion and not let them do it.


‘Noozies Wonder, “Why Don’t They Love Us Anymore?”‘ (2016)

As far back as 2016, twaddlers in the nooze media had begun to wonder why regular people didn’t like or trust them anymore. Like it’s some big mystery!

https://leeduigon.com/2016/10/27/noozies-wonder-why-dont-they-love-us-anymore/

Dudes, we don’t love you anymore because you despise us and keep trying to saddle us with Democrat masters who want to wreck our country, and we don’t trust you anymore because you never, never tell the truth on purpose.

Other than that, you’re swell.


Our Free & Independent Press… Caught Again

These guys in the nooze media are getting as slippery as climate scientists. And then they wonder why we don’t believe them anymore.

Observe the noozie trying to make headway against an overpowering wind. Now observe the people in the background, who aren’t affected by the wind at all.

But wait! There may be a rational explanation! Either the noozie is phenomenally weak, or the people in the background are superheroes with superhuman strength. Take your pick.


Pure Crapola from the Nooze Media

So it turns out–according to nooze media motormouth Chuck Todd–that there’s been a vast right-wing conspiracy to discredit our crusading-for-truth nooze media, and we only despise them because Roger Ailes and Fox News tricked us into distrusting the media, and Hillary shoulda been president but we got tricked out of that, too, blah-blah-blah (https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/09/its-time-for-the-press-to-stop-complainingand-to-start-fighting-back/569224/).

Anyhow, blabs Todd, it’s time for the media to “fight back” against “the campaign to destroy the legitimacy of the American news media,” because the “hatred was artificially stoked” (we’re supposed to love them!) by “exploiting the fears of older white people” who are just too ignorant and deplorable to reward the noozies with their due degree of veneration, etc. There’s a limit to how much of this bilge I can read on a hot day. Note they never miss a chance to play the race card.

Anyone who portrays Hillary Clinton as honest doesn’t deserve to be listened to. Not for a minute.

They still cling bitterly, as former President *Batteries Not Included would say, to their core belief that the natural default position of any sane human being is Far Left crazy, and that’s where we’d all be if it weren’t for Fox News and Lex Luthor or some other super-villain tricking us into being conservatives.

Guys, we only loath you because you’re loathsome.

May we live to see them all go out of business.


Newspaper Calls for ‘Coordinated Attack’ on Trump

“Objective news reporting,” according to our media

The Boston Globe–how many people still read it?–has called for a coordinated attack on the president of the United States by all of America’s newspapers (https://www.yahoo.com/news/newspaper-calls-war-words-against-193505874.html).

I thought they were already doing that.

They say they’ve got 70, er, newspapers already lined up for an editorial jihad on August 16. They’re mad because President Trump has called out the media for printing fake news. What–y’mean they don’t?

I’ve never in my life seen the nooze media wage war on anyone like they have on this president. They never rest. And it’s not just the papers; it’s all the talking heads on TV, plus Hollywood, plus our collidges and looniversities–it’s all anti-Trump, 24/7/365.

What do you suppose would have happened if even one conservative news source–presuming you could find one–had called for a coordinated editorial attack on President *Batteries Not Included? Racist, racist! Biggit! Hater! Nazi! And so on.

While normal people went peacefully about their business, leftists took control of many of our country’s institutions–the nooze media, “entertainment,” “education,” banks and other business corporations, and even our professional sports leagues. They were going to ram Hillary down our throats so she could finish the “fundamental transformation” that Obama started. They were going to wind up as the absolute rulers of Venezuela North.

They thought they had it in the bag. They were so close to their objective, they could taste it.

And then those pesky American voters snatched it away from them.

They can’t live with that, and they don’t intend to. They’ll overturn that election no matter what it costs.

And that’s why we don’t love them anymore.


Lib Loons Embrace Big Business

Image result for images of news media liars

According to The New York Times–you already know this is going to be a load of BS, don’t you?–left-wing CEOs are now “the moral voice of corporate America” (http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/08/23/new-york-times-vox-declare-corporations-the-moral-voice-of-america/).

Say what?

The loons at NYT are praising those who quit serving on President Donald Trump’s corporate advisory committee after he refused to join the nooze media’s manufactured hysteria over “white supremacists” et al. Yes, the president had the chutzpah to criticize leftid Antifa goons for showing up in Virginia last week with clubs and masks and urine bombs to “counter-protest” the dreaded neo-Nazis. Like, everybody knows hysterically violent Democrats are good and everyone who gets in their way is bad and must be beaten senseless.

Chiming in with the most overrated newspaper in the world, an outfit called Vox.com hailed lib-run corporations like Starbuck’s and Disney as fulfilling the role, nowadays, once filled by Christian churches. See, being a leftid turd-brain is, like, y’know, real spiritual, man! And, like, y’know, if you eat at Starbuck’s instead of Chick-Fil-A, that makes you, like, this moral giant!

Did I mention that the media buffoons praised the leftid CEOs for “speaking truth to power”? Leave no cliche unused! Hey, where do we pin the medals? As if they risked anything whatsoever by ratting on President Trump. Go ahead, imagine what might happen to anyone who ratted on President Hillary Clinton.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.  –Psalm 2:1-5

When the Lord’s done laughing, a lot of people had better start shaking.

 


Fake News, 1938

Image result for images of hitler taking czechoslovakia

Fake news has a long and shameful history. Our 21st century nooze media didn’t invent it.

The 1930s were the heyday of unreliable, dishonest, distorted, suppressed, and invented news. Walter Duranty of The New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for his brazen fictions about life in Josef Stalin’s workers’ paradise. But for real, thorough-going journalistic quackery, the British newspapers took the cake.

As Britain’s ruling class, throughout the 1930s, sought to appease and butter up Adolf Hitler at all costs, and to shirk their duty to defend their country, and to delude themselves into thinking Hitler was a nice man who only wanted what was reasonable and good, the higher-ups at the British papers did everything they could–including telling outright lies–to foster this illusion and deceive the British public.

Mind you, it wasn’t the reporters. The foreign correspondents in Berlin, Vienna, Rome, and elsewhere faithfully sent their editors accurate reports of developments in Europe. These the editors rewrote to mask the truth, or else simply discarded. As the Nazi regime grew in evil, so grew the editors and publishers in mendacity.

One particular incident really stands out.

In 1938 the arch-appeaser, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, bragged about securing “peace in our time” by sacrificing “a faraway country,” Czechoslovakia, to Hitler. This came on the heels of a long series of concessions to the Nazis, all of which made Hitler stronger and the western democracies weaker. It came rather close to treason.

Unable to stomach the dishonor of the government’s cowardly betrayal of an ally, Alfred Duff Cooper resigned as First Lord of the Admiralty. His resignation speech was a ringing denunciation of Chamberlain’s actions, and a full house at Parliament was strongly moved by it.

So the London Times reporter on the scene reported. Accurately, as a good reporter should.

But The Times’ editor-in-chief, Geoffrey Dawson, hand in glove with Chamberlain in all attempts to surrender to Hitler, didn’t like that report at all. So he threw it away, wrote a false account of Cooper’s speech going over like a lead balloon… and signed the reporter’s name to it! Appalled by his editor’s chicanery, the reporter resigned. And faced with a storm of criticism over the grossly inaccurate account that had appeared in his paper, Dawson could only pretend he didn’t know how that had gotten published.

In their decade-long campaign of lying and distortion, the British news media had a share in the responsibility for the millions of lives snuffed out in World War II. There were countless opportunities to stop Hitler before it was too late to prevent war. Thanks in part to the noozies, those opportunities were allowed to pass away, one after the other.

This is the example being followed today by our own Big Media.

God help us. Amen.


Right Before Our Eyes, a Lie is Born

Never mind Nancy Pelosi’s gift for annoying normal people and appearing to be one step short of going loopy. You don’t have to watch all 11 minutes of this video to see where she’s coming from.

What matters here is that the Democrat Party, right before our very eyes, even as we watch, is creating yet another vast, towering lie.

First Pelosi asserts that “Trumpcare”–any Republican legislation designed to replace the disaster that anyone but brain-dead liberals calls Obamacare–will visit “devastation on the lives of American families.” Don’t you love it when liberals pretend to care about families? Calling any effort to replace Obamacare “a catastrophe,” she predicts “heart-stopping premium increases”–which was, in truth, one of the major features of Obamacare–and foretells doom for “millions of families…” And so on.

It really is amazing to watch this unfold. Aided by the lock-step nooze media, Democrats are trying to create a gigantic lie and embed it in the mind of America. And the lie, a true whopper, is this:

Obamacare has been a fantastic success (untrue), everybody loves it (untrue), there was no down-side to it (those tens of thousands of jobs lost, and even more full-time jobs cut down to part-time–like, that never happened!), and without Obamacare, no one but the super-rich will ever get basic health care in America again.

This is a lie of truly Brobdingnagian proportions. It takes one’s breath away.

Can they possibly make it stick? Can they really, truly, get anyone but college putz-heads to  believe it?

God help us if they can. Because that will mean that we, as a nation, have lost all power of discernment and can no longer see through even the most preposterous lies.


What??? Nooze Media Hubris on Steroids

Image result for images of mika brzezinski

No one will ever accused MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski of being one of the world’s great thinkers. They never even accused her father, Zbigniew, of that–and he headed Jimmy Carter’s search for a way to surrender to the Soviet Union before it collapsed.

But even Mika outdid herself this morning. She ought to win a prize for it.

Worried that Donald Trump might, by some weird alchemy, persuade the American people that the nooze media don’t have their best interests at heart, Mika said the president might “actually control exactly what people think. And that’s our job.” (https://news.grabien.com/story-brzezinski-our-job-control-exactly-what-people-think )

Doh!

When I think of all the years I wasted as a newspaper reporter and editor, thinking my job was to present the facts to people as best I could, when all the time I could’ve been controlling exactly what they thought…

Noozies, noozies–you Democrats with press passes–you blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things–have you still not yet understood that you’re your own worst enemy?


Vintage Fake News: The Ford Pinto Scandal

Image result for car exploding into flame

Democrats in America, and left-wing loons in Europe, are lustily singing the blues, these days, over “fake news” that supposedly has tricked the people in their countries into falling out of love with their DeLuxe Globalist Fun-Pak of open borders, perpetual expansion of the government, and the invention of assorted thought crimes that need to be punished by the government. They’re pressuring Facebook and other social media, and lobbying for new laws against “fake news.”

“Fake news” is, it seems, news that is not provided by the Left’s bought-and-paid-for henchmen in the “mainstream” (LOL) nooze media–which has been cranking out phony, misleading, and just plain lying nooze for decades. While few noozies can hope to match the towering lies told by The New York Times’ Walter Duranty in defense of Josef Stalin’s workers’ paradise in Russia, he has had more imitators than you can shake a stick at.

A really big piece of journalistic fraud, now mostly forgotten, was the “exploding Ford Pinto” reportage of the 1970s which, before it was exposed as fraud, spawned journalistic attacks on other car companies ( http://www.fordpinto.com/index.php?page=228 ). Man, they all climbed aboard! NBC, CBS, and ABC. Dateline. 60 Minutes. 20/20–all the major nooze shows were accusing auto manufacturers of selling cars they knew to be death-traps.

And they had exploding car video to prove it. Exploding car video obtained by installing incendiary devices in cars and blowing them up on purpose, sabotaging brakes, drilling holes in the transmission–all sorts of little journalistic tricks designed to get the kind of video the noozies wanted.Even the National Highway Traffic Safety Board chided the alleged journalists for basing their reports on, at best, “abnormal test conditions and unrealistic maneuvers.” And that was when they weren’t hiding rockets in the trunk.

So, yeah, “fake news” has been with us for a long time–and the nooze media who are complaining about it the loudest have been among the guiltiest purveyors of it.

As a simple rule of thumb: any “news” report that benefits left-wing political causes is almost certain to be false.
