DAVIDSON: Fake News Has Been a Long-Term Issue

The media machine is culpable of gargantuan misrepresentations.

The four-year squabble between the Trump Administration and the corporate mainstream media over misrepresentation, misinformation, and fake news is nary a drop in the bucket of what has been brewing for decades. For years on end, the corporate mainstream media has loomed over U.S. political discourse regardless of who is in office. This media both guide and shape public opinion, 24/7.

Most adults today will acknowledge that merely because we see a feature on the news, and especially on the web, that doesn’t mean we ought to believe it. The media machine, like the Trump Administration and most assuredly the Obama Administration before it, can be culpable of misrepresentations. So, it is vital to distinguish real information from a barrage of misinformation.

The Continuing Mainstream Fabrication

In recent years, the media have abandoned any pretense of offering unbiased or objective information and tirelessly push an agenda upon us. Consider the Unite the Right rally, held on August 11 and 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, VA. One of the media’s continuing big lies is that President Trump openly praised white supremacists.

Actually, he condemned the white supremacists. The mainstream media and fake news websites selectively edited the video of him speaking on the issue, and still pump out their misinformation. Verbatim, on August 15, 2017, the President said this:

You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group… there were people in that rally – and I looked the night before – if you look, there were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I’m sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day it looked like they had some rough, bad people – neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest, and very legally protest.

When he said, “You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides,” he was not referring to the white supremacists. The transcript as well as the uncut video confirm this. Still, the major media, Joe Biden, and many others perpetuate the big lie. Worse the media machine is grossly perpetuating huge, history-contorting lies about Joe Biden and company.

Today, when instant news and communication is transferred between people, integrity in news coverage and information dissemination is vital. So, we must look past the false fronts devised to obscure what is actually occurring.

Discerning and Forthright

As more citizens become aware, fortuitously the media monopoly is being broken. More alert news consumers and the emergence of other forms of media assure that the ‘news’ monopoly will further dissipate. While under-informed citizens and low information voters rely on a handful of all-powerful media organizations, a greater percentage of news consumers are becoming more discerning.

Finding the truth is vital and invariably amazing. Fortunately, we have more tools available to us today than ever before. The Internet, obviously, provides us with a variety of websites that provide information. However, don’t fall into the trap of relying on the same old sources.

What we can do – Suppose you rely exclusively on Google as your search engine. You thus receive the URL links that Google’s biased algorithm designers want you to see. This has been proven repeatedly. Even within Google’s tainted search results, go further than the first page, which most people never do. The second, third, and fourth pages might contain links that provide you corroborated, authentic, and reliable information.

Periodically change your search engine to DuckDuckGo.com, Vivaldi.com, Opera.com, Bing.com, Gibiru.com, or Startpage.com. Each offers extensive search services, but with different sets of algorithms, which yield a more diverse set of news and information links.

Independent Sources

A wide variety of bloggers also helps in your news and information search. Many independent bloggers actually do more investigative journalism in their chosen fields than top newspapers and associated websites. Visit Bloggeries.com or Blogarama.com to identify the top bloggers in a field of endeavor.

Conduct your own research and routinely cross-reference what you uncover. Also, read the websites and the bloggers who offer opinions contrary to yours. Even if you don’t agree with the information or viewpoint, your perspectives on an issue can improve. Be candid when you’re wrong, just as you are when you’re right.

Each of us needs to stay on guard; our society sorely needs that and the truth demands it.

Save conservative media!

Dem Rep. Implies National Guard Members Who Voted Trump May Target Libs At Inauguration

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
