As we age, some things get harder to watch, what passes for news being near the top of that sad list. With the Lamestream Media being very little else than a Leftist propaganda corps for the sorts that vote Democrat – more and more the more extreme part of the party too – this is unavoidable.
That’s funny but also 100% true. Watching CNN in order to get the facts is like watching reruns of Green Acres to learn about farming or life in rural America for that matter. CNN is fiction – pernicious, anti-American fiction.
The truly disgusting thing is that the image above lampoons the best of CNN’s reporting. At best, they lie with facts by taking them out of context and spinning them into a denigration of good, upstanding Americans. Far more often they openly spew falsehoods that they’ve created out of whole cloth or had fed to them by Democrats.
And all that is just within the scope of their “reporting,” When we include their and their guests’ commentary during their various programs and what their staff spews on social media, CNN moves from simple fiction into poorly edited dystopian fantasy.
That’s one of the biggest and most important, if not the biggest and most important, threats facing the Civilized, Free, Western World today – the blurred and biased line between facts and fiction today. Between the Lamestream Media’s Fake News and Social Media’s “Fact Checkers,” it’s largely impossible for anyone to distinguish between facts and fiction.
But then, this hellish situation should hardly be considered unexpected. After all, just as an informed Citizenry is necessary to Democracy, a misinformed Citizenry is needed for tyranny to sink its roots in society. And there are certain sorts who sorely desire such tyranny… for all the best reasons of course.
And that is the fundamental basis of the a cappella agitpop that tries to pass itself off as news in America. The Lamestream Media’s go-to play is to find something, no matter how localized or minute, spin it into something outrageous, and sensationalize it in order to turn it into a widespread “issue” that demands the readers’ or viewers’ attention and reaction. Simply put, it’s how they make their money.
And, when the Lamestream Media is particularly successful, e.g., any negative encounter between a Black and the police, they create an actual nationwide problem that further feeds attention and money to the “news” media’s coffers.
“Lights, Camera, Fiction!” Truly, this is how, if anyone was still interested in either honesty or America’s Constitution, how every single broadcast by the Lamestream Media should start. After all, they’ve proven time and time again over the years that the truth is no longer in them and something they actively avoid speaking with what amounts to religious fervor.
