I Was just Thinking…

   Honesty, balance, and integrity no longer resides in the halls of mainstream media. They have been abandoned, orphaned at the steps of bias and omission.                                                                                                  

   “In 2017, the liberal Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University found that 93 percent of CNN’s coverage of the Trump administration was negative,” wrote Hoover Institution Senior Fellow,Victor Davis Hanson. “The center found similarly negative Trump coverage at other major news outlets.”

   This year being election season has only increased the degree of bias in the press-if that’s possible. And trying to distinguish between major newspapers as well as network and cable news organizations from the Joe Biden campaign is futile, because they are indistinguishable.

   “However, the real warping of the news is not just a matter of slanting coverage, but deliberately not covering the news at all,” Hanson further wrote, citing the stunning breakthroughs in Middle Eastern diplomacy bringing new hope to the area and promise for a safer future in this perennial war-torn region. Sadly, and on cue, these historic events have been conveniently dismissed, omitted in the media because it upends its narrative. If this peace initiative had been effectuated by the Democrats, it would have been blasted all over the news outlets 24-7 as a glorious achievement.   

   “The news as we once understood it is dead,” Hanson concluded. “It has been replaced by the un-news: a political narrative created by partisans who believe the noble ends of destroying Trump justify any biased means necessary — including destroying their own reputation and craft.”

   Media types are so transparent. They have lost their objectivity to present the news in a fair and balanced manner. They no longer hide their biases and are consumed with animosity for the president, clearly disrespecting the office of the presidency daily. Their overall demeanor and despicable “gotcha” questions during press briefings clearly illuminate that disrespect.

   People don’t believe the mainstream media.

   Don’t believe what they say.

   Don’t care what they write.

   Laugh at their outlandish statements and wince at their irresponsible exaggerations of that evil man residing in the White House.

   Meanwhile the media pretend to be outraged yet make outrageous statements.

   They think they are bright, enlightened, but they are sad, little people with damaged egos constantly projecting their shortcomings on others.  

   Nobody’s buying what they are trying to sell and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.
