The left’s propaganda machine
One of the most important issues in our American Constitution is the first Amendment protection of a free press. Along with that is our guaranteed free speech.
Someone once said that the pen is mightier than the sword.
All Americans should do everything in their power to protect and defend both of these issues right along with all the other amendments of our Constitution.
With that having been said, it is also our duty to hold these so-called- news media outlets accountable for what they say and publish.
The “main-stream”, Lame-stream” news media in America today is functioning simply as the left-wing Communist propaganda machine, nothing more, and nothing less.
Just the fact that idiots such as AOC and John Fetterman (and several others), can get elected to our Congress should be enough to tell the American people that something is drastically wrong in American press today.
While President Donald Trump, and Congress, may not be allowed to do anything about this “Fake-News” media and the lies they tell, we the people CAN do something about it.
We the People CAN hold these people accountable.
Here are just two examples of how the news media lies to the American people;
CNN reported during the 2016 campaign that then candidate Donald Trump said “Our military is despicable, it’s terrible”.
Did Trump actually say that? Did Trump ever utter these words? Technically – yes, he did. But that quote was taken out of context by CNN. What candidate Donald Trump actually said was “The state and condition that Obama has left our military is despicable, it’s terrible”.
Trump was criticizing Obama, he was NOT criticizing our military.
A second example;
The fake-news media reports;
A white man drugs, then undresses a black woman. Places her on a table and begins cutting her.
Technically that much of the story is true. But what is omitted from the story is that the white man is a surgeon and he is operating on the woman to save her live from cancer.
Left to decide the fate of these two men based solely on these two examples published by the news media the American people would be lead to believe that Donald Trump hates our military and the white man (doctor) should be hung for cutting the black woman. Nothing could be further from the truth in each of these examples.
Congress and the President, (Donald J. Trump) can not do much to hold the fake-news media accountable, but we-the-people CAN.
These news-media outlets are all controlled by only a handful of people. And they are granted broadcast license from the FCC. (Federal Communications Commission).
Those broadcast licenses can be revoked. And those corporations can be dismantled and broken up, their monopolizes can be dispersed. People can be fired, and even prosecuted.
This is NOT the news media of Thomas Pane and Ben Franklin.
The American news-media CAN be held accountable, they CAN be made to tell the truth.
And it MUST.
