Please Stop Trusting Anything The Mainstream Media ‘Report’, by the I & I Editorial Board | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

It’s been slow in coming, but millions of Americans now realize that the mainstream media is full of shit. From the Issues and Insights editorial board at issuesinsights.com:

America’s mainstream, or legacy, media have an agenda. It’s not to subjectively report the truth but to further leftist ideas and policies, all of which are toxic. The press’ disinformation campaign to prop up critical race theory is yet another example of its effort to deceive, manipulate, and divide on behalf of the party it is constantly shilling for.

A new study from the American Enterprise Institute found the media focus on schools teaching the history of slavery and racism, and largely ignore the “bedrock assumptions of CRT, including its explicit rejection of rationality and objectivity.”

AEI’s Frederick M. Hess “examined all news accounts addressing CRT published over a one-year period by four major newspapers (the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today),” and several “influential education press outlets.” All are news accounts. None are opinion pieces.

“Given that this admittedly revolutionary worldview is what motivates many objections to CRT-influenced pedagogy, one would expect news accounts to routinely address it,” Hess writes in “Media’s Misleading Portrayal of the Fight over Critical Race Theory.”

“Remarkably, however, CRT’s guiding assumptions were rarely mentioned in mainstream media or education press news accounts.”

Continues Hess:

Only a tiny sliver of news accounts even mentioned the substantive concerns about CRT or sought to explore the actual tensions. This is a grave disservice to parents, communities, and educators interested in finding productive ways to debate these heated issues.

Media bias has also infected coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, which is now in the jury deliberation stage. The bias has been so severe that several on the left are “now willing to admit they were duped” by the press’ Rittenhouse reporting, says Legal Insurrection.

The Democrats Lose, Claim They Have No Media Support! | PA Pundits – International

https://papundits.wordpress.com/2021/11/06/the-democrats-lose-claim-they-have-no-media-support/

By Tim Graham ~

The terrible election results for Democrats are going to lead to some terrible conclusions. One might be the assumption that these bad results reflect a media that’s too hostile to the Democrats.

Greg Sargent of The Washington Post tweeted this lame summary from former Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer: “Republicans have a massive communications advantage…[Glenn] Youngkin used the right-wing media to communicate his MAGA credentials to the base without offending Independents and Trump-skeptical Republicans.”

When Democrats lose, they say crazy things. Pfeiffer is saying with a straight face that Republicans have “created a powerful, self-serving media infrastructure,” and apparently the Democrats have nothing resembling a Democrat media…

Joe Rogan gets CNN’s chief medical correspondent to admit CNN lied about ivermectin | The Wentworth Report

Joe Rogan gets CNN’s chief medical correspondent to admit CNN lied about ivermectin. By Becket Adams.

CNN claimed this year that talk show host Joe Rogan injected himself with horse dewormer after he contracted the coronavirus.

It was a lie. Not a misstatement or an exaggeration, but an outright lie. Rogan did no such thing. Rather, he took the human version of ivermectin, as prescribed by his doctor.

It’s a perfectly normal and safe drug taken by literally billions of people. Yet night after night, CNN told its viewers Rogan had swallowed livestock paste.

This week, Rogan had a chance to confront CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta over the cable network’s dishonest reporting. Gupta admitted eventually in the interview that, yeah, CNN clearly said things that were not true.

CNN’s Effort to Clean up the Gupta Train Wreck Interview Proves Joe Rogan’s Point. By Nick Arama.

But that’s the problem with CNN in a nutshell, and it’s the point that Rogan was making. They don’t care about the truth; it’s all about narrative.

Rogan just exposed how empty and false Gupta and CNN were with all this. But you wouldn’t know it, if you listened to the spin that CNN subsequently gave about the interview.:

CNN’s [DonLemon]: “It is not a lie to say that [Ivermectin] is used as a horse de-wormer. I think that’s important. And it is not approved for Covid.”

[Gupta]: “Correct … If you look at the data, there is no evidence that it really works [against Covid].”

That last is a lie too. No evidence? How do you think India beat covid? Ivermectin only works against the viral build-up, in the first of the three stages of covid. In the subsequent blood clotting and cytokine storm phases, ivermectin is much less effective.

The establishment purposely did a few trials using ivermectin on patients already past the viral replication stage and, sure enough, it had little effect. This is what they are quoting when they say ivermectin doesn’t work against covid.

Glenn Greenwald:

In these corporate outlets — and I know, because I worked with several — they know their audience doesn’t mind lying if it’s aimed at their adversaries. They want that! CNN knows their audience doesn’t want a retraction.

This is not hyperbole: in the liberal sector of the corporate media — by far the largest and most dominant wing — lying and disinformation are not prohibited or even frowned up. It’s encouraged and rewarded, as long as it’s directed at the ideological enemies of their audience.

NY Times Recants – Overstated Children with COVID by 800,000 | Centinel2012

https://centinel2012.com/2021/10/11/ny-times-recants-overstated-children-with-covid-by-800000/

We have a very serious crisis in the media. The left-leaning press is so outrageous that they now appear to be deliberately trying to herd people into vaccines for Big Pharma and the press may be compromised with good old fashion CASH. Fox News is reporting how the New York Times overstated children hospitalized for COVID. If they had a broken bone and they tested them for COVID while there, they suddenly became a COVID patient – forget about the real reason they were there. This is just such dishonest reporting it puts the lives of children at risk and all for what? Bribes on the side?

We need honest answers. There are people claiming that those vaccinated will become susceptible to other illnesses because the vaccines will interfere with the natural immune system. Quite honestly, nobody knows if this is true or not. Others joke and say that is one way to reduce the size of government.

The press should not be selling the agenda but investigating what the hell is going on. If they are NOT allowed to report the truth and people like the head of CNN are on a personal agenda, they should come out and tell the truth and expose their corrupt leaders for what they truly are – anti-human rights.

While I do not believe that the government is KNOWINGLY forcing vaccines to reduce the population, that does not mean that they have turned a blind eye to Gates, Schwab, and Soros’ triumvirate to take over the world for their personal agendas of climate change/depopulation, Marxism, and a one-world government. I do not trust any of these triumvirate members and I seriously doubt that any one of them would ever tell the politicians the truth allowing them to only count their money which is the real end goal.

The recent Gallup Poll on the trustworthiness of the press is the lowest since 2016 when Trump took office.

I strongly advise discouraging your children from becoming a journalist at least for any of the leftist media in print, radio, or TV. They will NOT be allowed to print the truth and if history repeats, they will be dragging journalists out to the street to hang them. They are messing with people’s lives and all it will take is for someone’s child to die because they relied upon a press story that it was safe and that journalists could find they painted a target on their own head.

FULL OF GAS | Aletho News

https://alethonews.com/2021/10/08/full-of-gas/

By Paul Robinson | IRRUSSIANALITY | October 8, 2021

It’s 20 degrees here in Ottawa. For October, that’s something of a heatwave, and it’s meant to stay this way for a week or so, well into the middle of the month. Beyond that, the weather guys say that we’re in for a generally warm autumn. No need for the winter tires just yet.

Europe, though, is said to be headed for a deep cold spell in the coming months. So good for us, bad for Europe – unless you like winter sports, of course, in which case it’s the other way around. But regardless of what weather you prefer, cold has consequences, one of which is that you have to turn the heating up, for which you need fuel. And in the modern post-coal world, that increasingly means burning natural gas.

Unfortunately, this is a bad time to do so, for the price of natural gas has shot up in recent months, as you can see from the chart below. This is a result of increased demand, reduced output from wind turbines, and a reduction in supplies as Europe’s main suppliers – Norway and Russia – fill up their own stocks before winter. This has apparently ‘all but wiped out stocks’ in the rest of Europe. The markets have responded with a binge of frenzied speculation, shoving natural gas prices up to unnaturally high levels.

Which is obviously Russia’s fault. Because, well … it’s bad, and it’s natural gas, and so Russia must be to blame. After all, we know that all those traders on the futures markets take their orders from the Kremlin.

To give example of the hysterical rhetoric floating around, CNBC ran this headline yesterday: ‘The US was right – Europe has become a “hostage” to Russia over energy, analysts warn.’ The following story then told readers that ‘Europe is now largely at Russia’s mercy when it comes to energy,’ citing analyst Timothy Ash (who regularly pops up on the pages of the Kyiv Post) denouncing Russia’s ‘energy blackmail’ and saying that:

‘Europe has now left itself hostage to Russia over energy supplies … [It’s] crystal clear that Russia has Europe (the EU and U.K.) in an energy headlock, and Europe (and the U.K.) are too weak to call it out and do anything about it … Europe is cowering as it fears [that] as it heads into winter Russia will further turn the screws (of energy pipelines off) and allow it to freeze until it gets its way and NS2 [North Stream 2] is certified.’

If I get this right, the logic is that Russia is deliberately withholding supplies from Europe in order to force Germany to complete the certification of the North Stream 2 pipeline linking Germany and Russia. Unfortunately, Ash fails to provide a shred of evidence for this claim, and it’s not as if the Russians are expressing any sort of concern that the certification may not happen, or that they are specifically targeting Germany.

In fact, there’s no evidence that Russia is blackmailing anybody. Russia’s president Vladimir Putin even sought to calm international markets by telling the Russian gas company Gazprom to keep sending supplies through Ukraine even though it would be cheaper to send them via alternative routes. It’s important to maintain Russia’s reputation as a reliable supplier of energy, he noted, adding that Russia would indeed increase supplies to Europe this year, with exports possibly reaching a record high.

Critics complain that Russia could be pumping more gas to Europe than it currently is. It is apparently true that the volume of deliveries has been down in the past couple of months, as Russia fills up its own stocks before what is expected to be a harsh winter. But, deliveries for 2021 as a whole are on par with last year and Russia is meeting all its contracts. Furthermore, as Ben Aris has pointed out, it’s not that easy for Russia to greatly increase the quantity of gas it supplies Europe via existing pipelines. This is because different gas fields serve different pipelines, with limited connections. The line going via Ukraine comes from fields that are already ‘maxed out’. Additional gas would have to come from the Yamal peninsula – i.e. via North Stream or North Stream 2. With the former already at capacity, that in essence means the latter. In other words, Aris concludes:

‘It is possible for Russia to send more gas west without using NS2 but it’s limited & most expensive option for Gazprom. By far easiest & cheapest option for both Gazprom & EU is to turn NS2 on. This would solve the current gas crisis.’

It seems to me that Russia’s critics need to decide what they want. For years, they’ve been complaining that Europe is buying too much Russian gas. Now, though, they’re complaining that the Russians won’t sell them more! The Russians sell you gas – that’s a sign that they’re out to get you. They won’t sell you gas – proof that they’ve got you!

Frankly, it makes no sense.

Besides which, people don’t sell you stuff unless you ask them to, which in business terms means signing a contract with them. Russia, as previously said, is fulfilling its contracts. What more is it meant to do? As German chancellor Angela Merkel pointed out this week, if European states haven’t signed up to buy Russian gas, they can’t really complain if they don’t get it. She said:

‘To my knowledge, there are no orders where Russia has said we won’t deliver it to you, especially not with regard to the pipeline in Ukraine. Russia can only deliver gas on the basis of contractual obligations, and not just only like that.’

Absolutely.

Of course, if Russia was exploiting the rising cost of gas by engaging in price gouging, there might still be some grounds for complaint. But that’s not the case. Russia prefers to lock its customers into long-term contracts. Anybody who had the good sense to sign such a contract with Gazprom a while back when prices were low will now be laughing: their supplies are guaranteed and they’ll be cheap. Germans, Hungarians, Serbs, and the like are probably feeling a bit smug right now. Others who preferred to gamble on the market, or to dump Russia for an alternative supplier such as American LNG will now have to pay the price. But that’s their fault not Russia’s. As Putin pointed out:

‘The practice of our European partners has confirmed it once more that they made mistakes. We talked to the European Commission’s previous lineup, and all its activity was aimed at phasing out of so-called long-term contracts. It was aimed at transition to spot gas trade. And as it turned out, it has become obvious today, that this practice is a mistake.’

None of this, unfortunately, has stopped the flood of stories blaming Russia for Europe’s gas crisis, a crisis that is in large part due to the latter’s own errors. To give a flavour, here’s some of the headlines in the American and British press this past 24 hours:

‘Don’t Fall For Putin or Orban as They Try to Exploit Europe’s Energy Crisis’ – Washington Post

‘As Europe Faces a Cold Winter, Putin Seizes on the Leverage From Russia’s Gas Output’ – The New York Times

‘Russia has the West over a barrel: Fury at “bullying” Putin for offering Europe more natural gas IF his Nord Stream 2 pipeline is approved.’ – Daily Mail

‘Gas price crisis: Is Putin using energy supply as a weapon and what is its new Nord Stream 2 pipeline?’ – Sky News

‘UK dubbed “Putin’s puppet” as “Soviet” Britain’s gas prices plummet after Russian offer’ – Daily Express

‘How “Sleepy Joe” handed Putin the bargaining chip he is using to hold Europe to ransom in gas crisis’ – Daily Mail

Now, I can understand why Western politicians would want to find a scapegoat for their own failings, but why does the press go along with this? Wasn’t there a time when the Fourth Estate prided itself on holding the powers that be at home to account? Apparently no more. Blaming Russia obviously sells more copy. As long as that remains the case, expect the pipelines of BS to keep on flowing profusely!

Russell Brand: Hillary’s Trump-Russia Story Was the Biggest Political Hoax of Our Lifetime – Nwo Report

https://nworeport.me/2021/09/28/russell-brand-hillarys-trump-russia-story-was-the-biggest-political-hoax-of-our-lifetime/

British comedian Russell Brand has come out in full support of Donald Trump and has admitted that Hillary Clinton knowingly lied about Trump-Russia collusion to tens of millions of Americans.

Brand posted a video to Youtube titled: “So…Trump was RIGHT About Clinton & Russia Collusion!!

After reviewing the latest news that the Department of Justice just charged Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI about the Trump-Russia hoax, Brand said he was “flabbergasted” by the fact that the evidence now proves that “Russiagate was a Democratic conspiracy.”

Breitbart.com reports: Brand said that as a leftist, he wants to believe that the Democrat Party is the party of “diversity and truth and social justice.” But he added that the new evidence is worrisome. “What my concern is becoming is that these are totemic issues pushed to the forefront to mask ordinary, regular corruption,” he said.

Brand’s concerns were sparked after special counsel John Durham charged Michael Sussmann with lying to the FBI about the origins of the Russia “collusion” accusations lodged against Donald Trump in 2016.

Durham alleges that Sussmann met with the FBI in 2016 to tip the agency off that Trump was colluding with Russia but did not disclose potential conflicts of interest with the Clinton campaign and that the info he was passing on came from the Perkins Coie law firm that is linked to the Democrat Party.

“Sussmann’s false statement misled the FBI General Counsel and other FBI personnel concerning the political nature of his work and deprived the FBI of information that might have permitted it more fully to assess and uncover the origins of the relevant data and technical analysis, including the identities and motivations of Sussman’s clients,” the indictment says.

Comedian Brand finds all this to be shocking news — evidence that all the accusations of Trump colluding with Russia were untrue, a naked political stunt.

“It seems like years ago that we were hearing that Trump was colluding with Russia, that he wouldn’t have won the election without Russia, that his whole presidency was kind of a Putin plot,” Brand exclaimed on his video.

Brand continued, “we have to recollect just how prevalent this story was. Every late-night talk-show, all over the news, it was just — you were bombarded with it.”

Brand added that he never paid too much attention to the Russia conspiracy claims in 2016 but did note that it was a “defining issue” of the Trump years and that it was still being held over his head when he ran for reelection.

“And it was like, being sort of in a way discussed as if it was just an absolute fact. To discover that this was propaganda, a construct, a confection by the Democratic Party — who, of course, are now in government — is kind of beyond disappointing, because you begin to question and query what other things may not be true,” Brand said.

“Once you recognize that people create certain truths in order to meet certain ends and aims, the idea that you might be able to trust their integrity obviously dissolves,” he said disgustedly.

In the end, Brand said he is no less than “gobsmacked” that this whole anti-Trump conspiracy has been revealed to be nothing but a Democrat dirty trick and that there isn’t an ounce of truth to this attack on Trump.

Anatomy of a Smear: Corporate Press Deliberately Misquotes Nigel Farage | Political Arena

https://politicalarena.org/2021/08/06/anatomy-of-a-smear-corporate-press-deliberately-misquotes-nigel-farage/

When telling “the whole truth” complete quotes and the context it is said in is everything.

For example two quotes from the Bible are “and he hanged himself” and “go and do likewise.” Taken by themselves someone could build a false narrative around this and make the Bible seem horrible. In fact that is the very tactic that anti-Christian zealots use as a matter of routine.

The FBI could ask you what the color of a perp’s car was and you say read and later the FBI comes back at you and says “No it was magenta” and charges you with the “crime” of lying to the FBI. What the FBI does in real life is not far from this example. The Russia hoax investigation is full of such sophistry.

Redefining terms, playing games with the language and out and out falsehoods are an accepted tactic of the far left. Fully endorsed by leftist luminaries such as Antonio Gramsci, Walter Lippmann Lenin, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Cloward & Piven, Saul Alinsky as well as most any critical theorist.

Objective truth is simply not a value of the left. To them the “truth” is anything that advances “progress” towards socialism/communism.

British politician and civil rights leader Nigel Farage is a strong supporter of Israel. His speeches and actions over the years show this countless times. Farage has met with and supported strong Israeli leaders. Yet examine these headlines LINK LINK:
