Here at ANP we have consistently documented the "fake news" pushed by the liberal establishment media over the course of the past few years. Detailed, conclusive examples of outright lies being pushed hard, all coordinated as evidenced by the exact phrasing in headlines used by countless MSM outlets, all on the same day, in an attempt to control the narrative, therefore control the masses.
Many of the stories surrounded the whole "Russia collusion" hoax, some stories stealthy changed, others being given editors notes, or corrections, with some of the worst having to be completely changed, including the headline, some deleted and retracted, costing high profile journalists their jobs, and in one case an unpaid suspension.
We could speculate on the reason the media has simply "gone round the bend," whether it is because they want the control over the people they lost during the 2016 election, or whether it stems solely from the liberal bias, but frankly at this point, the reason doesn't matter because over the weekend they crossed a clear line and their deliberate lies, their collusion on headlines, has now resulted in death threats against children, and suggestions to burn down a high school.
While many have offered their apologies following celebrities, liberals and even media personalities demanding the students be named and shamed, and in one case "punched," publicly for "surrounding" and "mocking" an elderly Native American man, which never happened as full video footage of the event revealed, others are still doubling down and attempting to condemn the students and the school, resulting in the school having to close on Tuesday to "ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff."
“After meeting with local authorities, we have made the decision to cancel school and be closed on Tuesday, January 22, in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” reads a letter to them from the school’s principal, Robert Rowe.
“All activities on campus will be cancelled for the entire day and evening. Students, parents, faculty and staff are not to be on campus for any reason. Please continue to keep the Covington Catholic Community in your prayers.”
Extra security was to be in place at Covington Catholic High School when students returned to campus Tuesday after threats were made against the school and its students over the weekend.
“On Monday afternoon the Covington Police alerted us that they had intelligence concerning a planned protest, Jan. 22, at Covington Catholic High School and a vigil at the Diocesan Curia. Due to threats of violence and the possibility of large crowds the Diocese was advised to close Covington Catholic High School, the Diocesan Curia and neighboring Covington Latin School,” the statement says.
On Tuesday morning he followed that up by stating "Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!"
Ironically the establishment media manage to even lie about President Trump's direct quotes in calling "fake news" the enemy of the people (one example shown above), consistently claiming he is calling all of the media an enemy and/or fake news.
NYT, Feb. 2017: "Trump Calls the News Media the 'Enemy of the American People" - CNN, Nov. 2018 "Romney takes issue with Trump calling the media the 'enemy'." - ABC News, Oct. 2018: "Trump kicks off week with tweet calling media 'the true enemy of the people'." - CNBC, Oct. 2018: Trump slams media as 'true Enemy of the People'."
All the big networks manage to ignore the term "Fake News," when quoting the president...... so isn't that, in and of itself, proving they are publishing "fake news," by omitting the most relevant part of his statements in order to claim their victimhood status?
We already know that any incident that includes a person wearing a Maga hat is always going to be spun negatively against the Trump supporter wearing it, and we also know that the media downplays and ignores the outright violence against those wearing MAGA gear, and that the media is going to collude to highlight the "MAGA" in all their headlines.
Seems awfully important to highlight the MAGA hats, didn't it? When the full story came out that the Native America lied about the series of events that led to the image that went viral, some still concluded that by simply wearing a "Make America Great Again," hat, automatically makes these kids "racist," therefore evil.
The thing is, the Fake News media is not just the enemy of the "MAGA" supporters, they are the enemy of all the people. Look how they admitted they lied to Hillary Clinton supporters before the election by refusing to inform them how much heartland America "hated" her. Look how many times they have used deliberate false news to raise the hopes of liberals over the past two years, with the "this is the end of Donald Trump" stories, just to have them become more outraged and angry when it didn't happen as the media promised it would.
When the media lies, publishes fake news, leading to outrage, disappointment, anger and violence, that makes them the enemy of all Americans, not just MAGA supporters.
TARGETED FOR DEATH BY THE MSM
The Covington story is not the first time the media has deliberately targeted a Trump supporter, leading to violent threats and death threats. Remember when CNN doxxed (revealed the personal information) of an elderly lady that happened to share a Facebook post, publicly, on air, accusing her of helping "Russia!?" That led to her being threatened, online and offline.
So, while the Covington story isn't the first time, it is the most egregious because this time, they didn't just harass someone and outrage their audience to the point where they viciously harassed her, but they targeted school children, high schoolers, who are now getting death threats.
Two of those Covington Students have issued a video statement explaining the threats that have come against the students, their families and the schools. The video is a little blurry, and you have to turn the sound up, these students obviously aren't trained in making videos, but their statement is chilling. (Update- Video replaced with one of better quality and sound)
These students, one of which wasn't even at the event in question, was "doxxed" and has been getting threats simply because he was vocal in defending his school.
The establishment liberal media, followed by sick twisted liberals on social media, with some initial help by NeverTrumpers, who also apparently were triggered by seeing a MAGA hat, literally targeted these children for death threats.
While many people have offered public apologies to these students, and others have deleted their threats and false accusations, other social media users have captured many and there are a number of legal professionals offering to go after each and every one of the people that slandered and maliciously libeled the students, and are collecting screen shots and links as evidence so they know who to serve.
This scandal will follow these students throughout life, while the media claims they fell for a "hoax" or were gullible, so it wasn't their fault, but they have crossed a line in targeting children and must be held accountable.
Not only should the media, and irresponsible NeverTrumpers, and even democrat politicians that smeared these students be held accountable legally, but by the masses, who need to start questioning any and every story that the media rushes to make viral before the facts are out.
