Beware of the Left-Wing Media and Modern Liberals

    I believe the left-wing media is deliberately pushing a very dangerous lie that all police officers are attempting to target and murder minorities for no other reason than they are minorities. This action is extremely irresponsible and evil, causing the deaths of too many police officers.

    The people who died at the hands of the police had a strong tendency to be involved with crime, were resisting arrest, and demonstrated a complete disregard in following police instructions. The left-wing media seems to take great pains to edit out parts of a video showing a criminal resisting arrest to portray him as an innocent victim.

    Statistics have shown that, on average, more whites have died at the hands of the police while resisting arrest than minorities. But if you notice, the left-wing media rarely shows this. They only show these incidents involving minorities -- while hyping, dramatizing, exaggerating, and twisting these incidents to foment a riot!

    The left-wing media is trying to foment a nation-wide riot to make the current president look bad. They want to usurp control from him, so that they can carry out their Marxist agenda of enslaving the citizens.

    Sincerely,
    Al A. Gammate

    Do you have an example of this from a media source, perchance?

    The left wing media is not that smart -we give them way more credit than they deserve IMO.

    ...But then again, I do remember the women marching on the streets right after Trump was elected, which I thought was bazaar.

    The problem with policing in this country cannot be laid at the feet of Donald Trump. It has existed for decades before his presidency. He is open to critical review for his response to it, however. The media reports what occurs. Change what occurs and you change the news.

    You're close..but not quite there yet. Yes, "The left-wing media is trying to foment a nation-wide riot to make the current president look bad.".....The question is, who is driving the left wing media?

    A challenge to all...where do you get your news? There is press bias on the left and the right. Many times on CF, I also see conservatives posting from media with an extremely conservative bias. I've come to identifying the source before I give credibility to any press citation. AllSidesMediaBiasChart-Version10.jpg

    I’m surprised Human Events is not on that list. Is it not widely read in the US? I’ve found it to be one of the few conservative news outlets that actually tries to argue any points made rather than simply stating their opinions as absolute truisms that require no adult explanation.

    Bias and reliability are different.

    An outlet can present extremely sound reporting even if it favors stories that support a certain viewpoint.

    But then there are outlets that promote pure propaganda and even outright lies. Right now we're seeing a proliferation of this on the "conservative" side. The president even tunes in to this garbage and forms opinions from it. "Conservative Treehouse" for instance.

    I also would like to see any article that says or implies "that all police officers are attempting to target and murder minorities for no other reason than they are minorities."

    A really interesting exercise on a dramatic news day is to open a far left news site and a far right news site to see how they report the same day. i did this shortly after the George Floyd murder. The story line on the left was racial disparity and mistreatment based upon skin color. The story line on the right was insurrection and rioting in the streets. Which was right? Neither in their entirety. The story of the day was both.

    Call me crazy, but I am suspicious that such articles only exist in the fantasies of QAnon fanboys and the like. Maybe one day someone will provide an actual example of these elusive liberal writings.

    Because its a secret agenda, the liberal masterminds only place these stories in outlets that pretty much no one reads.

    Beware of right wing media and modern conservatives.

    Such is the pathway to hell.

    Yes, I see. I heard that one such article is held in the sub-basement of the old town hall in Tibilisi, this apparently holds the key to deciphering the cryptic messaging of the liberal press. Apparently what actually reads as reasonable and well documented reporting is in fact secret code instructing people to invade the White House and make everyone in America gay.

    Full disclaimer: I am Dutch and we Dutch more or less invented liberalism (and modern capitalism).

    I get quite a lot of mine from Nederlandse Omproep Stichting, de Algemene Dagblad, de Telegraaf, de Volkskrant, RTL Nieuws, etc., but also the BBC, the Guardian, the Scotsman, etc.. Besides the football (soccer) news from around the world, I seem to like the (relative) objectivity of non-American news services.

    That being said, even the "conservatively" biased news services from most of the rest of the world would be bleeding heart liberal to American Republicans since many of them would be viewed by much of the rest of the world as extremist right wing boardering on fascist.

    There are also some very high quality conservative news outlets in Europe too, something the US is sorely lacking in.

    What I find amazing is how the left wing media...cnn, msnbc and such on many occasions have said the same catch-phrase verbatim. This is a clear indication they didn't come up with the talking point on their own....but were directed to say what they said. Mockingbird news.

    I wonder why that is? Possibly because truth still counts for something in European conservative news outlets? Possibly because the European readers are more literate about what's going on in the world outside of their local neighborhood?

    The insurrection and rioting was a hi-jacking of the George Floyd murder....now we have Seattle.
