Pants on Fire
You know those motivational memes and inspirational pictures people post on their Facebook page? Something like:
Well, those are nice and all, but I saw one today that really hit home about what’s happening in our country.
The anonymous quote is this:
I’m to the point – and I believe I am not alone – that I question EVERYTHING reported as “news” by the mainstream media (MSM). We have been lied to so many times, that I just expect it. And the bigger issue is that I’ll never believe them again.
There are two types of lies:
Lies of ”commission,” where one intentionally generates false information; and
Lies of “omission,” where one intentionally excludes important information.
The MSM truly does deserve to be called “fake news,” because it has perfected them both.
Here are just a few lies of commission propagated by the MSM day after day:
America was founded in 1619, not 1776. This is the infamous New York Times project that seeks to undermine and rewrite history to show that our country was actually founded in 1619 when the first black slaves were brought to the Jamestown colony. It also claims that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery and that everything we have achieved as a nation from 1619 and on is the result of slavery. Hence, we are a racist, bigoted nation. The NYT won a Pulitzer Prize for this lie. This is also the same paper that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for their reporting of the Russian collusion narrative. Every bit of that was proven to be false, too.
Requiring a photo ID to vote equals voter suppression. Not only is this whopper flat-out false, it’s insulting! First of all, 80% of Americans support voter ID laws. Essentially the MSM and Democrats are saying that “underserved communities” are too lazy or ignorant to obtain a photo ID. Do you KNOW a single adult without an ID? It’s needed to drive a vehicle, board an airplane, purchase alcohol, receive treatment at a medical clinic or hospital, and to enter a government building. And believe it or not, after all the hyperbole of voter suppression, Democrats required photo IDs to attend their own national convention.
Police are racist killers who hunt Black men. If you listen to the MSM, you would be led to believe that cops hunt down and kill thousands of unarmed black men. But the real statistics are not discussed, because it doesn’t fit the Leftist narrative.
Here are some lies of omission the MSM promotes by suppressing information:
If you’ve been listening to the MSM, you would probably never know the truth about Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. He has been under investigation by the federal government since 2018 for potential crimes like felony gun possession, tax evasion and money laundering, and shady business dealings in Ukraine and China. But the real story is that media censorship and suppression of the Hunter Biden story kept a huge majority of Biden voters from ever knowing about scandal-plagued Hunter. A survey by The Polling Company shows that 17% of Biden voters would have abandoned him had they known. That was more than enough to change the outcome of the election. That’s what voter suppression looks like.
Were you aware that the MSM suppressed the fact that John Kerry, the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, allegedly committed treasonous behavior by sharing classified information about Israel’s defense plans with Iran?
And then, there's the border.
This administration and MSM continue to do everything in their power to gaslight us about the unmitigated disaster at our southern border by suppressing information about the real situation. And while the rest of the American citizenry is enduring more mask mandates, business closures and travel restrictions, thousands upon thousands of immigrants are streaming into the country and being bussed and flown to undisclosed locations all over the country. (There is some evidence that they are being taken to red states to turn them blue.) According to the Biden administration and the media covering for them, everything is fine. Move along. Nothing to see here.
Did you know there are still riots (sorry…mostly peaceful protests) going on in Portland after over a year? The MSM media still ignores it. Have you seen this picture on TV? You might think this is a building in a war zone like Afghanistan or Iraq. Nope, it’s the Federal Courthouse in Portland, Oregon.
These are just some of the lies of commission and lies of omission that we are presented with each and every day. My advice is to do your own research and view other media sites that present a more realistic view of current events. Sources such as: The Epoch Times, The Gateway Pundit, The Daily Wire, The Federalist, and National Review have been invaluable to me. Also try using an uncensored browser like DuckDuckGo. For uncensored video, try Rumble.
In closing, I’d like to share another meme that I REALLY like. Not only does it speak for me, but I believe it speaks for all steady patriots:
