Yellow Vest Negligence Pushes French Approval of Media to New Low

In America, news of the Yellow Vest movement has been nearly non existent – a reality that the French people have attempted to rectify over the course of the last few weeks.

The metaphor built around the idea of a “mainstream” media is brilliant, to say the least.

Not only does it just sound like the right word for the job, but the idea of a flowing river, the center of which moves the fastest in only one direction almost no matter what is an apt description of what we see when we tune in.  It’s nonstop chyrons and banners and faces, shouting, while staring directly back at us, as if we were the other pundit on-air riling them up.  It’s almost as if these talking heads are taking their frustrations out on us instead of the person on the either side of their screen.

Back to creek bed, for a moment, however…

Also in the mainstream are enormous rocks; pillars of their surroundings, who are immoveable except for only in the most extreme of circumstances.  Time is one enemy of these stones, as undercurrents undercut their footing is slow, methodical ways.  On the other hand, a deluge of water could come sweeping in, where even the mightiest of boulders cannot refuse the command to tumble.

This latter scenario seems to be our most pressing at this time, with a glut media outlets all wildly flailing for our advertising demographic’s attention.

In France, that boulder is the establishment media, who have refused to give proper coverage of the months-long Yellow Vest protests occurring every weekend in Paris and beyond.

Now, the French people are reacting to this nonsense by lambasting the media every chance they get…including at the polls.

The French people have the least confidence in the mainstream media than they had since 1987, when polling on the subject began.

The poll of 1,000 people, which was conducted by the Kantar Sofres Institute, shows that while 67 percent of French follow the news, up from 62 percent last year, fewer trust the mainstream outlets, broadcaster BFMTV reports.

Print media saw the highest level of confidence with 44 percent of the respondents having a positive view of it, down eight points from the previous year.

Television, which as listed as the most preferred source of news by the respondents, saw only 38 percent say they had confidence in the reporting of television news broadcasters compared to 48 percent in 2018.

In America, news of the Yellow Vest movement has been nearly non existent – a reality that the French people have attempted to rectify over the course of the last few weeks.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
