The media has been misreporting the news ever since Trump took office. A group that played soft with Obama has blatantly distorted the Trump administration. But they’ve only gotten worse since the pandemic. After breaking the “last” straw (after thousands of previous last straws), even respected disease expert Dr. Birx hammered them. Something tells me it won’t be the last time.
How many times are we going to put up with a media that is blatantly dishonest and corrupt? These media hacks have zero scruples and not a shred of integrity. Their only agenda is to misrepresent the Trump administration as much as they can. They don’t even try to hide it anymore.
President Trump made a few off-handed remarks to a doctor about the possibility to treat COVID-19 with disinfectant. It’s clear, if you watch the video, he is just speculating. Not once did he recommend anything to anyone. But soon after, the mainstream media claimed he told Americans to drink bleach or Lysol. You have to be an idiot to truly believe Trump said anything remotely close to that. Or, you just have to be utterly dishonest.
But why should we be surprised? This is the same crooked media that has been lying about the president for over four years. The same media that was hoping for a recession—with millions of Americans suffering—so that Trump would lose re-election. The same media that was almost gleeful at the outbreak of this crisis and has continued to misrepresent it to the people.
So, we should not be surprised that a nonpartisan medical expert is forced to condemn the media for their pathetic work.
Dr. Deborah Birx, an infectious disease expert who has been one of the White House’s top advisors on the coronavirus pandemic, rushed to the president’s defense in an appearance on Fox News Saturday night and again in an appearance on CNN Sunday morning, taking the media to task for pushing misinformation…
“I think the media is very slicey and dicey about how they put sentences together in order to create headlines. …We know for millennials in other studies that some people may only read the headlines. And if there’s not a graphic, they’re not going to look any further than that,” Birx said on Fox News Saturday night, accusing the media of getting in the way of — and even burying — useful information about the virus…
She was even more adamant about the media’s role in spreading disinformation during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, blasting the media for taking joy in the president’s verbal pitfalls, even when they turn out to be innocuous. [Source: Daily Wire]
Let’s get one thing clear: if I, as an independent writer, spread fake news, I’m out of a job. On top of that, social media is quick to ban anyone that spreads something they don’t like (true or untrue). We as regular citizens are constantly battling forces that seek to rob of our First Amendment rights.
Yet the mainstream media continues to spread lies, with zero penalties. Facebook isn’t going to ban CNN for saying Trump told Americans to drink bleach. YouTube isn’t going to demonetize MSNBC for spreading fear and propaganda. There is virtually nothing for the liberal media to lose when they slander you or President Trump.
During this crisis, their fake news is even more deadly. By spreading misinforming, slander, or just ignoring the facts, the media has contributed to bad decisions that will cost us lives. They have gone out of their way to try to tarnish Trump’s response, including discrediting live-saving medicines.
Even Birx had to slam them. Her job is to help Americans battle a disease. Yet she is forced to confront the utterly corrupt corporate media. Is that right?
Only when we stop listening to the lying MSM, will we claw back some of our liberty. But when will that day come? When will Americans switch off the 24/7 news networks and stop spreading their bogus articles online?
At this point, we won’t survive until we do that.
