Fake News Everywhere You Go

We are simply surrounded by it. The media, both left and right, have become more advocacy groups than they are reporters of the news.

“They’re phony – they’re fake. Their agenda is not your agenda.” – Donald Trump on the news media.

As usual, those words spoken by Trump were not appreciated by the media, but he could not have been more spot on.

You’ve probably already seen that in the last few days there was more inaccurate reporting over this tragic shooting of a young black woman in Ohio by a police officer. Multiple liberal websites picked up a story from that crack news organization The Daily Beast which initially reported that the young woman was shot despite the fact that the knife she was purported to have was on the ground.

Except whoops, police, using their brains and acting quickly, released the body cam footage which clearly showed that the woman was wielding the knife and appears to be about to use it on another citizen. The officer dropped her after warning her to stand down. It’s a shame it had to happen, but it’s shameful that the media reported it the way that they did.

Even NPR was duped on the story – you know, the supposedly non-biased news that your taxpayer dollars fund. A liberal friend of mine once said “I’m glad my son listens to NPR so he can be an informed citizen.” How stupid can you be?

At least give them some credit, they did edit the story after printing it. They also added a disclaimer to the bottom of the story. Folks, you can’t make this shit up, read it twice if you have to:

“Some facts reported in this story may later be found to be inaccurate.”

Consume the “news” at your own risk, and I would suggest a generous sprinkle of salt with all bites.

  1. Not only fake, but obviously biased too – some local leftist flavor.

    The Record’s own editorial this morning, Thursday, April 22nd, was staggeringly unprofessional. Stop it right now.

    To quote, “The truth is that it took a mountain of prosecution evidence to convict one brutal cop of murdering a Black man during the simple act of arresting him for allegedly using a $20 counterfeit bill to buy cigarettes.”

    Your statement starts with, “The truth is…”, but is that the “whole truth”? To a thinking person, seems there might be more to the story than passing a $20 counterfeit bill. Care to use some unbiased professionalism to elaborate? Apparently not. Might ruin your narrative?

    Further in the column, “They can insist police officers refrain from carrying Tasers and handguns on the same side of their body, so they don’t accidentally shoot someone they intend to stun, as happened April 11 near Minneapolis in the death during a traffic stop of Daunte Wright, 20.”

    Again, it strains credibility to think that police would even consider stunning someone, much less shooting someone, for a traffic violation. Upon reading your column, one might envision someone being stunned for an improper lane change or a faulty taillight. Is there more to this “traffic stop” story or are you selectively leaving out facts to again suit your narrative?

    Your closing, as is typical for closings, clearly summarizes your message, laying bare your naked bias. “Until it is instilled in police that their first loyalty is to the George Floyds of the world, there will be no winners for the conviction of Derek Chauvin.”

    Please help me understand this tortured logic. So, the first loyalty of police is to law-breaking criminals during the commission of criminal acts? Seems the two are diametrically opposed, no?

    OK, last question, I promise. Have you lost your mind?
