FAIR AND BALANCED? Liz Warren Tells Fox News ‘No Thanks’ on Town Hall

Liz Warren hopes the anti-Fox News stunt will help raise her profile and pad her coffers, while simultaneously decrying the network as “hate for profit”.

As the infotainment industry continues to divide and conquer Americans with their false choice between “left and right”, politicians have been exacerbating the further tainting of the free press by falling for this phony dichotomy as well.

Our political system, much like any good Hollywood action movie, tends to have very clear cut good guys and bad guys; only, in this conflict, these designations are wholly subjective and up to each individual to decide.

But why?  What makes the idea of dividing the entire nation into diametrically-opposed ideologies so appealing?

Worse still:  Why do we allows major media corporations, both online and in the ancient realm of television, monetize this phony conflict?

Those answers would only come after years of reflection, I’m afraid, but we can protect ourselves from this media manipulation in the here and now.  In order to do so, we mustn’t encourage our politicians to play to these hotly divided stereotypes.

Someone ought to tell that to Liz Warren, who this week turned down an opportunity for a town hall-style showcase of her ideals on Fox News – a mainstream media channel often accused by democrats of favoring the republican agenda.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is declining to participate in a Fox News town hall, a move that comes after a number of her fellow 2020 Democratic competitors have agreed to engage with the network’s audience.

“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why,” she wrote Tuesday morning in a series of tweets. “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life & death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.”

Warren, while decrying the “hate” of Fox News went on to make some wild allegations against the network.

Warren charged that the network “balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet.” She said that participation in a town hall on the network sends a signal that it is appropriate to still buy ads on the cable channel, which hosts a primetime lineup of overtly pro-Trump hosts who engage in bigoted and conspiratorial rhetoric—something she doesn’t want to encourage.

And while it may be refreshing to see a politician decry the advertising-driven aspect of infotainment, (a seldom discussed abomination), Warren’s refusal to participate is, in and of itself, perpetuating the very stereotype that she’s hoping to destroy.

Mayor Cancels LGBTQ Pride Flag Raising At City Hall. You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next

Insert eye roll here.

Published

on

The city administration of Reading, Pennsylvania is being called discriminatory by rabid left-wingers after canceling a ceremony to raise an LGBTQ pride flag at city hall on Monday of this week. City hall canceled the flag ceremony because flying the flag would be showing support for a “political movement” and no flags supporting such movements are to be flown at city hall. via TheBlaze: “People don’t realize how many people come here looking to put up flags for movements and stuff, and I’m just not part of that, and I don’t think we should be,” the Democrat added to WPVI-TV. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading issued a statement saying “what was supposed to be a proud and historical moment” turned into “a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” “We are not a cause,” the statement added. “We are human beings protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance in the City of Reading.” Local LGBTQ leaders told WPVI they plan to file a complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Why should LGBTQ folks have a flag flying at city hall? If all they want is to be treated like everyone else, to be considered equal, why do they continually seek to have more rights and be a protected group? That just doesn’t make any sense. It seems pretty clear what they are really reaching for is normalization. They want other people to accept their lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to be validated. This is because deep down, they know such a lifestyle is sinful and goes against nature. This is identity politics at its finest.

NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race. How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument: The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit. Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime. For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it. How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not…
