That’s the thing. Much like the only math that CNN and the rest of Lamestream Media knows is the calculus of hate, the only science they understand is political science. So, of course, they’d report far different results for #BlackLivesMatter riots than for normal American behavior.
Framing and context are very important when setting up a narrative. Just ask CNN, the most distrusted name in “News.” They’re experts at this particular propaganda technique.
It’s true! CNN, the most distrusted name in “News,” can be counted upon by Americans and our domestic enemies to be the first to report and the first to distort. Then, they’re not “The Press.” which rightfully enjoys constitutionally enumerated protects; they’re a Left-wing propaganda organ.
CNN will apparently always be CNN, whether it’s theire political (mis)reporting or their business section. Their recent article, “New threat to the economy: Americans are saving like it’s the 1980s” pretty much sums that fact up aptly and succinctly.
Americans are slashing their spending, hoarding cash and shrinking their credit card debt as they fear their jobs could disappear during the coronavirus pandemic. US credit card debt suddenly reversed course in March and fell by the largest percentage in more than 30 years. At the same time, savings rates climbed to levels unseen since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.
Yeah, CNN has a problem with people saving money instead of staying and/or going deeper into debt. After all, they describing increasing one’s savings as “hoarding cash.” They see not spending money that you don’t have and planning to rely more upon yourself during a crisis as threatening behaviors.
Then, I suppose this is to be expected. CNN was, is, and always will be CNN, a leftist mouthpiece and part of the propaganda corps of the Democrat party. As such, their is no part of their ideology that isn’t threatened by people behaving in a responsible manner, especially involving their money.
Yeah! Honestly, it’s like that. Certain sorts seem to love to tell Americans to check their facts and then, as supposed evidence, present articles from CNN or other Lamestream Media sources as evidence that the Americans are wrong.
And, of course, those Lamestream Media sources are so very careful about their fact-checking. They very much don’t want to tell something that the Leftists’ magisterium has decried as blasphemous or heretical. The cost to them would be too high.
Then, we must accept that this problem of “alternative facts” will continue. After all, Americans and the sorts who tend to vote Democrat don’t even have the same definition for many things.
