It’s only propaganda
Once upon a time, we had (mostly) journalists in the mainstream media. No more. Slanted stories based on shady information aimed at pushing an agenda seem to be the norm now. It is not just fake news; it is often disinformation and distorted “news.”
We keep hearing about immigration but that is not the real story. It is illegal immigration that is the focus of border control and policy discussions. It seems enforcing the long-existing laws and supporting orderly immigration doesn’t support the agenda of the largely leftist media, so they constantly paint those wanting the laws of the United States enforced as being anti-immigrant instead of telling the truth regarding illegal immigration.
Climate change/global warming. Yep, it is happening. Climate change is always happening—short- and longterm. We are about 11,000 years or so on our way out of an ice age; of course the earth is warming. The real question is how much, if any, has human activity affected the warming? Will it make any difference if humankind reverts to Flintstone-like living? Do we really need to destroy our economies or change our lifestyles for what might be a fraction of a percent of warming? The media agenda wants us to think that we can stop the warming if we would only … whatever the flavor of the day is for the cure.
Gun crime is another favorite distortion. Across the country there are thousands of gun laws. Criminals break the law—that’s what they do. It appears the new leftist media wants to make law-abiding citizens criminals by attacking their guns rather than doing something about the real criminals.
I shouldn’t even mention their fascination of Russia, Russia, Russia and Trump without mentioning the actual connections with the DNC and the Clintons. Again, mentioning the left’s dealings with Russia doesn’t promote the anti-right agenda.
News. No, not really. With few exceptions, just propaganda for the left. MARK BARNHARD
