NBC’s Chuck Todd Tells Media to ‘Fight Back’ Against Fox News; Two Days Later Tragedy Strikes

Published

on

On Monday, NBC News host Chuck Todd penned a published piece that admonished the media to “fight back” against the evil empire known as Fox News, taking an opportunity to smash on conservative legend Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge.

However, his beef seemed to be with Fox News, who he mentioned numerous times in his piece. Here’s an example:

“The American press corps finds itself on the ropes because it allowed a nearly 50-year campaign of attacks inspired by the chair of Fox News to go unanswered,” Todd wrote. He said the late Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News, orchestrated a “sustained assault on the press created the conditions that would allow a president to surround himself with aides who argue for ‘alternative facts,’ and announce that ‘truth isn’t truth.’ Without Ailes, a man of Trump’s background and character could never have won. Roger Ailes was the godfather of the Trump presidency.”

Todd went on to say he’s received threats — many conservative writers have too, so good ole Chuck here is far from alone in that regard — but still he called for the media to fight back.

“For me, idle death threats are now the norm. (I don’t take them seriously, because if I did, I’d never feel at peace.) But forget the personal animus or safety issues reporters now face. American democracy requires a functioning press that informs voters and creates a shared set of facts. If journalists are going to defend the integrity of their work, and the role it plays in sustaining democracy, we’re going to need to start fighting back,” he wrote.

Tragically, two days later, it seems someone took his advice. A man was arrested after he intentionally crashed his vehicle into the side of a Fox News building in downtown Dallas. The suspect, 34-year-old Michael Chadwick Fry, ranted on and on about “high treason.”

The attack on the Fox News came as the Senate broke down into chaos over President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to sit on the Supreme Court. In the first two days, nearly 150 protesters were arrested, most for interrupting the Senate hearing.

CNN’s Jim Acosta, who has repeatedly accosted Trump, said in July, “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy.”

But Acosta only meant the liberal media that attacks Trump nonstop. He didn’t say a word on Twitter after the attack on the Fox News building. Neither did Todd.

While this man’s actions cannot fully be placed at the feet of Chuck Todd, the point here is that liberal media is very careless with its rhetoric, which is very dangerous given the seemingly unhinged nature of folks like Fry and others who are part of the Antifa movement and are just itching to get violent.

The mainstream media has a responsibility to present the facts to the American people, giving them information and allowing them to draw their own conclusions. Instead, media today tries to tell people what to think, how they should vote, and where they should stand on controversial issues instead of letting the truth speak for itself.

Folks on the left, especially young people who have been highly indoctrinated with progressive thought, are very easily influenced by what they hear in the media, thus, when talking heads like Todd use violent rhetoric — on purpose or otherwise — it clicks with something primal in them that leads to these kind of horrific incidents.

The media needs to take responsibility for its role in many tragedies like this and work toward being more careful in their rhetoric and choices of language.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
