I’ve been saying journalism is dead since 2008, when the press refused to look closely at a little known senator from Illinois who was about to become president. But what we're seeing play out now is far worse.
The alt-radical left propaganda media has created an informational crisis, and they can no longer be trusted. Let me explain. After the resignation of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as President Trump’s national security adviser, the media is in rushing to paint a patently false narrative.
Let's start with The New York Times and their “bombshell” report that the press is running wild with. In reality, it amounts to nothing more than a fake news political hit piece. The headline screamed: "Trump campaign aides had repeated contact with Russian intelligence." The story cites four current and former unnamed American officials who offer up vague details about intercepted communications between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian officials.
Then you have Chuck Todd, of MSNBC. Here’s what he said after Flynn's resignation.
“Good evening. I'm Chuck Todd here in Washington. Welcome to "MTP Daily" and welcome to Day 1 of what is arguably the biggest presidential scandal involving a foreign government since Iran-Contra.”
And consider Thomas Friedman, the award-winning liberal columnist from The New York Times.
“And it gets … to two other issues,” he continued. “The first is, we have never taken seriously from the very beginning Russia hacked our election. That was a 9/11-scale event. They attacked the core of our very democracy. That was a Pearl Harbor-scale event.”
That’s right, he compared it to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, where thousands of Americans died.
These examples show exactly why the American people should not trust the lazy leftist propaganda media. It’s pretty simple. You have a bunch of overpaid, lazy, partisan hacks throwing one giant hissy fit because their candidate lost. And because of that, they're carrying out this endless, all-out assault against President Trump.
