How the media lies
We’ve all heard that the main-stream media lies constantly and consistently.
But how do they get away with that?
Well here’s a short example;
I don’t know if CNN actually did publish this or not but if they did here’s how they would do it.
CNN Reports; “Law professor says Trump guilty of bribery.”
That’s what they would publish.
Now here’s what that same Law professor might have actually said;
“According to the testimonies of some of these other witnesses, most of whom were not on the actual phone call, then yes, Trump is guilty of Bribery.”
In other words the report itself is a lie. A lie by omissions. In this example the Law professor never actually said that Trump was guilty of bribery, what she said was “According to others- - - ”,,, The media is lying by leaving things out that are inconvenient to their narrative and agenda.
They do this all the time, and this is the kind of stuff that Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Jerry Nadler are basing their impeachment hearings on.
“The Law professor says Trump is guilty”- - - - - “He must be impeached”.,,
Once this is broadcast enough then the people who listen to them believe these lies. And THAT is the whole impeachment game. Make the uninformed listeners believe it.
Here’s another example: This was written by Rick Roberts on WBAP radio;
Main-stream media reports: “A Man drugs a woman, removes all her cloths, puts her on a table and begins cutting on her with a very sharp knife.”
That sounds pretty scary doesn’t it.
Well that part may actually be true, But here is what they left out;
The man is actually a doctor – a surgeon, and he’s operating on the woman who has cancer and he is trying to save her life.
That’s another good example of how the main-stream media lies. And they do it all the time. Once they broadcast that enough then the uninformed listener will begin to believe it.
A reply from Col. Harry Riley;
It seems to be confirmed that the US House of Representatives has lost all sense of fairness and common-sense....maybe most of America.
The current impeachment issue is troubling and in our face nearly everyday, all day, filled with distortions, deceptions, half-truths, and some view total false accusations. All this stuff we’ve become accustomed to expect from politicians from all political parties. However, the current one sided, “he said, she said, hear-say” environment is missing a vital factual ingredient from the US Constitution. Or maybe the US Congress lives outside the US Constitution until the Constitution meets “their“ expectation?
Sixth Amendment to US Constitution” In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
One does not have to be a President Trump supporter or anti-Trump supporter to recognize that the US Constitution guarantees each and every one of us as innocent until proven guilty, with the right to face our accuser in public(no secret hearings), fight with every factual resource we can muster, in an open, fair and balanced legal procedure.
There is no limit to the argument as to what aspects of the Sixth Amendment or equal protection clause in the 14th Amendment applies to Congress, or what does not. Given impeachment is considered a political action, it appears Congress can build Articles of Impeachment at anytime of their choosing, based on anything someone may have heard someone else say, presume, or think.
Is there any room for “common sense” in America today? Can the average American not conclude the current impeachment process is anything but “fair”; and fails to meet the “common sense“ test?
Is the impeachment action we've been witnessing for weeks in the House of Representatives what our Founding Fathers intended? I don’t think so.
