Americans are Turning Away from Mainstream Media’s Monsters

This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it.

The division that we see in our current society is unacceptable, but the loud, crashing, rapid fire mortars of the mainstream media have us so disorientated that we cannot see it.

At any time of the day, you could turn on the television and watch two grown adults shout at each other over politics.  There are channel after channel devoted to this very idea; that we can induce catharsis living vicariously through the talking heads on the television.

At times, it is even barbaric.  There are nuclear moments that go viral, adding fuel to this fire of fervor and frenzy.  Then, these snippets get snatched out of context and weaponized on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It has put us all at each other’s throats, and that is not what this great nation is all about.

This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it.

A new poll shows trouble for the figurative tip of the mainstream media spear, CNN.

Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week.

Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans.

When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day.

Even more telling still are the metrics available to us that compare CNN to their rival networks.

Fox News, which nearly triples CNN in primetime viewers and more than doubles CNN in total day viewers, held almost perfectly steady with a one percent increase in primetime viewers and one percent decrease in total day viewers.

In the 35-54 age demo, Fox dipped -13 and -12 percent in primetime and total day, respectively.

MSNBC, which doubles CNN in primetime viewers and nearly doubles CNN in total day viewers, held its losses to single digits: eight percent in primetime and six percent in total day. MSNBC’s demo losses mirrored those of CNN.

This could very well be a sign of the American people waking up to the bias of CNN, and finally seeking their media elsewhere, outside of the corporately-controlled mainstream.

Save conservative media!

Flashback: Ilhan Omar Was Arrested In 2013 for Trespassing (Details)

Everyone seems to forget about this…

If Ilhan Omar was a Republican, game over. She’d be out of office faster than a person can say “Russia hoax.” It was recently re-learned, if you will, that Omar was arrested in 2013 for trespassing. Because she’s a liberal, though, Ilhan has all the cover she’d ever need. From Alpha News: State Rep. Ilhan Omar was arrested in 2013 for trespassing and booked at Hennepin County Jail “to prevent further criminal conduct,” according to a newly uncovered police report. The incident took place on January 18, 2013 following an event at the Minneapolis Convention Center featuring former Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The Somali president was set to stay the night at the Hotel Ivy, causing large groups of Somalis to follow the presidential convoy to the hotel, including Omar. Continued: According to the police report, hotel staff requested police assistance in clearing the lobby, saying that anyone without a hotel room key was not welcome on the premises and needed to leave immediately. The officer handling the incident said the majority of people who were asked to leave were compliant. However, Omar, when approached, was “argumentative” and refused to leave. Omar has yet to learn about messing with HUD Secretary Ben Carson. She might’ve recently become more clear about it. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1130992076462723072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130992076462723072&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47567%2Filhan-omar-taunts-ben-carson-he-blasts-back-one-hank-berrien Enter Carson: Since you brought it up… I know what it’s like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb. I hope @IlhanMN knows I care about all people, even those she doesn’t recognize as having a right to life. https://twitter.com/SecretaryCarson/status/1131234819680165889?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131234819680165889&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47567%2Filhan-omar-taunts-ben-carson-he-blasts-back-one-hank-berrien BOOM! The Minnesota Congresswoman who reportedly married her brother has once again made headlines by saying something obtuse. Omar is learning to pander with the best of them. At the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conference, Ilhan said “some…

Navy Suspends Nearly 200 Saudi Students From Flight Training After Pensacola Mass Shooting

Was this the right move?

Democrats will cry racism after this move by the U.S. Navy but would they be justified? Probably not. What else is new? After all, a Saudi national aviation student was behind the deaths of three people at the Pensacola Air Base. Also, six other Saudis were detained and three were caught filming the attack in its entirety. Therefore, it would seem as though this was the right move. Here are the details… AP-US–APNewsAlert Navy says flight training suspended for about 175 Saudi Arabian students in wake of Florida base shooting Friday. https://twitter.com/TMcFaddenWNDU/status/1204500431969439744?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204500431969439744&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-us-navy-suspends-flight-training-for-175-saudi-students%2F The Saudi Air Force lieutenant who killed three people with a 9 mm Glock bought the weapon legally, because federal law allows foreign nationals with a hunting license to buy guns. He may have been able to buy it with other exceptions to the law as well, the FBI said Tuesday. https://twitter.com/FrancesRobles/status/1204470866937028610?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204470866937028610&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-us-navy-suspends-flight-training-for-175-saudi-students%2F More from Washington Examiner: The Saudi Arabian citizen behind the mass shooting in Pensacola, Florida, legally purchased the gun used through a hunting license loophole. On Friday, 21-year-old Mohammed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force, killed three sailors and wounded eight more at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where he was training. The gun used in the shooting, which is being investigated as an act of terrorism, was a 9mm Glock model 45 handgun. Continued: Alshamrani made use of an exception under federal law that allowed him to purchase the weapon, according to a Tuesday statement from public affairs officer Amanda Videll of the FBI. Let’s hear your thoughts…
