Happy June 28, 2020
Have you ever heard the term “it’s a loaded question”? Well, it’s a question, usually derogatory that contains an unjustified assumption with a presumption of guilt.
Like “Hey Joe are you still beating your wife? Whether Joe answers yes or no, the rest is presumed and the words are in play. Poor Joe. That is exactly the tack the left and THEIR media are using daily against Donald Trump and sadly it works very well.
CNN, MSNBC, the three major news outlets including rags like the New York Times, Washington Post and USA Today all use the “let’s throw it against the wall and see what sticks” technique”. Their radio and TV media cohorts give them a huge national and worldwide microphone to carry their water to every American listening coast to coast and including the “ships at sea”.
I read with pretty much disgust the first section of USA Today yesterday. Seven out of every ten articles -in that first section alone- were negatively slanted to give the impression that everything up to and including Covid-19 were all due to Donald Trump and the right’s actions or lack of them.
What happened to the media reporting the five facts: WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, AND HOW? 80% of their reporting has noting to do with truth rather they are indulging in journalistic activism.
The vindictive and ignorant Pelosi and Schumer are -to this day- still saying that every one of the president's actions represents an impeachable betrayal of his oath of office, but never ever proved anything of a coverup nature. Just exactly like Do You Still Beat Your Wife? Still hoping that anyone hearing or reading it will pass it along. Here is a perfect example of their slanderous and disgusting technique. Fox News citing her saying today, Sunday June 28th this:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on Sunday that she’s unclear as to what “the Russians have on” President Trump, but added that it must have swayed his administration not to take action after U.S. intelligence learned that Moscow spies offered bounties to Afghan militants to kill U.S. troops. There it is. A baseless allegation and now it’s out there for unsuspecting folks to pass along. Remember Joe. Poor Joe, he may or may not beat his wife but at this point he is presumed GUILTY. The left and their media machines continue to slam and slander POTUS and the Republicans at every point while using the above-mentioned press to spread their lies and continue in the battle to obfuscate every word out of their mouths for every national figure that carries the conservative banner. Casting aspersions is like being in a boat and “wetting a hook”. IT’S CALLED FISHING-NOT CATCHING.
