The most misinformed and uninformed segment of the U.S. population are those that only get their news from a major "news" outlet or multiple MSM sources, without bothering to do even a basic amount of research to verify what they are "reporting" or to check what the media is not reporting.
Example One of Media Malpractice: If you only watch the liberal establishment media, you would not know that for 47 days straight, Portland, Oregon,has been under siege with rioting, destroying federal and individual personal properties, and Antifa has generally turned the entire city into a warzone.
The Department of Homeland Security, using laws that allow them to go in and try to get some semblance of control if federal properties are involved, has a list starting from May 29, and updated up until July 15, 2020, listing the crimes and destruction, vandalism, arson and much more, committed by Antifa groups and members, while the liberal state elected officials do nothing but defend the domestic terror.
“The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob while local political leaders refuse to restore order to protect their city. Each night, lawless anarchists destroy and desecrate property, including the federal courthouse, and attack the brave law enforcement officers protecting it. “A federal courthouse is a symbol of justice - to attack it is to attack America. Instead of addressing violent criminals in their communities, local and state leaders are instead focusing on placing blame on law enforcement and requesting fewer officers in their community. This failed response has only emboldened the violent mob as it escalates violence day after day. “This siege can end if state and local officials decide to take appropriate action instead of refusing to enforce the law. DHS will not abdicate its solemn duty to protect federal facilities and those within them. Again, I reiterate the Department’s offer to assist local and state leaders to bring an end to the violence perpetuated by anarchists,” said Acting Secretary Chad Wolf
Read the entire list of Antifa crimes ignored and approved by Portland Major Ted Wheeler at the DHS website.
Those thinking the claim that Wheeler is ignoring and/or approving of this type of domestic terrorism on the part of Antifa, simply need to see his own assertion that the it is the federal forces causing violence, despite the fact that the feds didn't step in for over a month.
Example Two of Media Malpractice: During a White House press conference, when the question of President Trump's stance on wanting children to go back to school in the fall, his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, made the following statement:
"The science should not stand in the way of this, but as Dr. Scott Atlas said -- I thought this was a good quote, 'Of course, we can do it. Everyone else in the Western world, our peer nations are doing it. We are the outlier here,'" McEnany said, quoting the former Stanford Medical Center neurology chief. "The science is very clear on this. For example, you look at the JAMA pediatric study of 46 pediatric hospitals in North America that said the risk of critical illness from COVID is far less for children than the seasonal flu. The science is on our side here. We encourage localities and states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools," she continued.
In context it is clear, by her exact words, that the White House believes the "science is on our side," which is why she made the statement that science should not be standing in the way of reopening schools, but the media, led by the CNN hack Jim Acosta, decided to skip all context and just "report" the first words.
Following Acosta's intellectually dishonest "reporting," CBS News, Washington Post, NBC News reporter, The Guardian, the DNC, Democrat politicians, and many, many more blue check verified Twitter users, all used the same clickbait headline which misrepresents the obvious meaning of McEnany's assertions.
Example Three of Media Malpractice: Days ago we at ANP received word via a reader that three people he knew in Texas has gone to get a COVID-19 test and after waiting an hour, when told they had three more to wait, they left without being tested.
Days later they received notification that they tested positive.
Readers know that here at ANP, using unnamed sources or anonymous sources is something we rarely do, so while this readers has never steered us wrong, we sat on it until we could independently confirm the information.
That came by way of Texas having to remove 3,484 COVID-19 cases off their ledgers
"The State of Texas today had to remove 3,484 cases from its COVID-19 positive case count, because the San Antonio Health Department was reporting 'probable' cases for people never actually tested, as 'confirmed' positive cases.
Despite the cases being much lower, by up to 25% percent than originally reported, as well as other "news" being corrected about the pandemic, the liberal establishment media continues to actively argue against reopening schools, and are still pushing for more states to shut down again.
The example seem to be never-ending, but since I want to get into the why of the media's blatant lies, misrepresentations and radical activism, we will just leave these examples as being representative of the state of "journalism," these days.
WHY THE MEDIA LIES SO MUCH
Over the years the media has become more and more careless with "truth" in favor of pushing their preferred ideology which is overwhelmingly liberal, and Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) certainly accounts for the increased frequency of the fake news, inaccurate "reporting," misleading headlines and outright deliberate lies over the course of the past four years, but those are not the only factors.
See the media wanted Hillary Clinton to win in 2016. The continuously predicted her win, despite knowing how "hated" she was in heartland America, which NBC's Chuck Todd admitted after the Trump won the election, stating "We didn't tell the stories of all Americans."
It is not just that the media hates Donald Trump, nor just TDS or bias.
The media has been having a nearly four year temper tantrum that they couldn't influence nor control the populace and the candidate the insisted would win, that they donated to help win, that they advocated for during the election cycle.... failed spectacularly because many Americans now know they cannot trust what the MSM reports and are looking for news elsewhere.
Just imagine the temper tantrum they will for the next four years if President Trump wins reelection.
The closer we get to November and the 2020 presidential election, the more we can expect the establishment media to pull out all the stops.
Expect to see more misrepresentations.
Expect more "anonymous" sources that end up being wrong, yet corrections won't be made until much later when no one will see them.
Expect more media collusion and coordination on those very inaccurate and fake news stories.
Be prepared to counter false arguments with factual data and truth.
Every Independent Media outlet needs to call out the MSM lies as they occur, and every reader will need to help bypass the liberal establishment media as they did in 2016 by spreading the truth.
Unless of course you want Joe Biden to be the next President of the United States of America.
