Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The fake news appears to be undergoing a “quickening”, to borrow a phrase. As the fake journalists at the nation’s major media outlets carry out their increasingly frenzied efforts to carry water for the Democrats, the presence of anything remotely resembling real “news” reporting on the nation’s airwaves becomes little more than passing memories of a previous generation.
On Sunday, pretty much the entirety of the establishment news media focused almost exclusively on two stories that fake reporters had simply invented: a) the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Donald Trump had ordered his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress and the Special Counsel’s office about a planned high-rise tower project in Moscow, and b) a completely manufactured story containing no news value whatsoever about some kids from a Catholic school on field trip to D.C. allegedly taunting an elderly Indian while wearing MAGA caps.
We talked here about the Buzzfeed fake story, which was debunked with 24 hours of its publication by the Special Counsel’s office itself, on Saturday. So no need to linger there any longer, other than to point out that he story’s author and a Buzzfeed editor were given free air time by CNN’s Brian Stelter to continue their outright libeling of a sitting POTUS on Sunday. I refuse to use the names of these killers of real news here just as I refuse to use the names of mass murderers, and for similar reasons.
This story about the “taunting” of the elderly American Indian man and the Catholic high school kids may well be the literal end of the final few clinging shreds of the thing the journalism profession used to refer to as “ethics.”
There is literally zero reason for this non-violent confrontation to have become a “news” story in the first place, other than the predominant news media’s hatred of and bias against President Trump and anyone who expresses their support of him. The entire thing was obviously staged, as the old man, banging a drum, basically assaulted a group of minors, some of whom he noticed were wearing red MAGA caps, inserting himself into their midst unprovoked and invading their personal space and taunting them until a couple of them began taunting back.
The entire video recording of the incident was several minutes long, yet the anti-Trump, anti-Catholic, and lets’ be honest, anti-American amen chorus in the fake mainstream news media focused all day long on just the few seconds in which one teen in particular responded back at the old jackass and made some nasty faces at him.
Within minutes, the snippet of tape was up on CNN and MSNBC and being trumpeted by basically all of the despicable creeps who infest the hallways of those places as an example of how the bad Orange Man in the White House and private Catholic schools are turning the nation’s children into a pack of racist thugs.
Never one to be left out of a good old fake news frenzy, the New York Times weighed in within a couple of hours with a headline screaming “Boys in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats Mob Native Elder at Indigenous Peoples’ March”. Breathtaking.
Later in the day, desperate to avoid being named in the libel lawsuits that are sure to come out of this, the fake editors at the fake newspaper issued a second headline that reads “Fuller Picture Emerges of Viral Video Between Native American Man and Catholic Students.”
Oh. You don’t say.
A better, more accurate headline published by a real, honest newspaper would have read something more like “Entirety of National News Media, Without Evidence, Knee Jerks to a False Portrayal of Meaningless Confrontation,” because that’s what actually happened. The confrontation itself was meaningless and not in any way a real “news” story at all. Minor confrontations between agitators like the old man and people who are minding their own business take place all across America every day and no one puts them on the nightly news because they aren’t actually news.
But the fake news creeps in our fake news media jumped all over this one because of one simple fact: It could be falsely portrayed to fit into the their false narratives about the President and private Catholic schools, which they all detest. And so, they all, with one voice directed by Democrat Party talking points, dedicated an entire day to libeling a bunch of 15 and 16 year-old kids who had clearly been assaulted by an old man who was determined to provoke an incident.
If you don’t believe by now that the news-fakers at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the AP, CBS, ABC, NBC and all the rest of the grand pantheon of fake news outlets in America truly are the enemies of the people, then you really need to pay closer attention here, because you have lost touch with our reality in America today.
There is no such thing as real news anymore. It’s all just a narrative.
That is all.
