News media once again play Useful Idiots
When the Washington Post sought the person responsible for recent extreme-right actions like the appearance of heavily armed citizens at Gettysburg on Independence Day — guess what it found?
A Bernie Sanders supporter and Antifa member.
“The mainstream media took his fake postings hook, line, and sinker,” law expert Jonathan Turley reports..
Chuck Todd’s NBC disinformation campaign
Mr. Turley recently discussed the false tweet sent out by CNN’s White House reporter Jim Acosta that mocked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany for saying that “the science should not stand in the way of this.” Turley observes that quote “was artificially clipped to create the diametrically opposite appearance from what actually occurred.”
In Thursday’s briefing, McEnany repeated President Trump’s call for children to go back to school in the fall.
“The science should not stand in the way of this, but as Dr. Scott Atlas said — I thought this was a good quote, ‘Of course, we can do it. Everyone else in the Western world, our peer nations are doing it. We are the outlier here.’ The science is very clear on this. For example, you look at the JAMA pediatric study of 46 pediatric hospitals in North America that said the risk of critical illness from COVID is far less for children than the seasonal flu. The science is on our side here. We encourage localities and states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools.”
Turley’s Bottom Line: If an ill-considered tweet is a venial sin for Acosta at CNN, this is a mortal sin for Todd at NBC. This was no careless tweet, but an airing made long after the false account was flagged during the CNN controversy.
It is another example of how the echo-journalistic model not only undermines the faith in the media but actually undermines the effort to fully inform the public on the pandemic.
One of the biggest hoaxes being perpetrated is that the leadership of Antifa, Black Lives Murdered, certain members of the Marxist Streamed Media, et al, are anything other than anti-America anarchists. Though they are relatively few in numbers, they are very powerful. To illustrate my point imagine this scenario – (1) An atmospheric low develops over the Great Plains (2) A bolt of lightning strikes the ground (3) The flash and great noise stampedes the cattle (4) The wildfire resulting from the strike follows behind, destroying everything in it’s path. —-The”low” is the OPPORTUNITY ( really anything, George Floyd, coffee shops, car accidents,arrests, etc.). The lightning is the AGITATOR (Antifa, BLM,etc.). The stampede is the RIOTS and PROTESTS. And the wildfire is the resulting changes in LAWS, SOCIETY, and PUBLIC PERCEPTION because of what just happened. — the LIGHTNING simply strikes, then sits back and watches !
To be clear – I’m referring to the LEADERSHIP of Antifa, BLM, MSM, etc., (the rank and file of each are mindless drones). FUN FACT: The insignia of the SCHUTZSTAFFEL (SS) was two runes of LIGHTNING BOLTS.
Rest In Peace John Lewis. Even though some of your fellow congressional members cannot get the right picture posted YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED AS AN ICON.
I did not agree with most of his politics, but, he was certainly influential. Maybe he will get his bridge (Edmund Pettus lived in Selma and was elected to the Senate, hence his name on the bridge. – “Favorite Son” rather than “Racist Memorial”) They’ll change it.
