Historical Fact-Checkers

Historical Fact-Checkers
Historical Fact-Checkers Existed

Actually, there were fact-checkers way back then. They were the various priests and orders of the Catholic Church. And, much like the modern era’s inquisitors of the leftists’ self-proclaimed Magisterium, they brooked no dissent or deviation from the orthodoxy that they had created. Thankfully, so far, the Left has settled for censorship and destruction of property, whereas the Church put heretics down, often brutally and only after extensive physical torment.

In truth though, the only functional difference between the fact-checkers of the past and the ones of today is how their taskmasters respond to findings of heretical “misinformation.”

Man Bites Dog

President Donald J. TrumpAs should be expected, the biggest news in America, possibly the Civilized World, is President Donald J. Trump. And one of the evolving stories center to this is the President’s refusal to bow to the Lamestream Enemedia. Given that these kingmakers – and failed, would-be queenmakers – aren’t used to being questioned by anyone, this is definitely a “Man Bites Dog” news moment and of paroxysmal bouts of outrage, fear, and denial.

Our President’s latest strike against the leftwing propaganda engines was fired off via Twitter on February 17th.

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

— President Donald J. Trump

Yes! A man bit the dogs and the dogs are howling. That’s newsworthy indeed and gratifying to read about as the “press” and their liberal followers explode over it. Definitely a case of “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Man Bites Dog

Oh, and how they’re yipping, yapping and howling over this as they tear the clothes and beat their breasts over this “horrible slur” against them, as if they hadn’t already though their bias, hate, and mendacity already beggared their own reputations and betrayed and thus lost the trust of we, the People.

Oh yes! The media personalities and their always so useful and beholden shills have been quick to cry, “That’s how dictators get started,” and to claim to all and sundry who might listen and give credence to them that President Trump is shutting down the media.

No, while it’s true that that’s how dictators get started, it’s also how revolutionaries get started. They speak truth to power and they do so boldly, frankly, unapologetically, and with the candor that comes from the righteousness of their cause. And that is what President Trump is doing, speaking truth to power – speaking truth the undeserving holders and wielders of a vast, pervasive, and manipulative power that they have sorely misused, abused, and corrupted.

And that, my fellow Americans, is a Man Bites Dog moment in history.
