The dishonesty of the so-called mainstream media is shockingly getting worse.
They truly have no shame in spreading disinformation to the American people.
And Donald Trump Jr. called out big media for one disgusting lie they told.
The corporate press knows that when they sensationalize a story and get it wrong, the lie will be heard by millions, but the retraction will only be heard by thousands.
This creates an incentive for them to rush to print any story that makes Donald Trump and the Republicans look bad.
Even if it isn’t true, it’s still “true.”
That’s the mindset of the people within the Democrat Media Complex and it was on full display when NPR ran an absurd story about “right-wing extremists” going after protesters in car attacks.
NPR used a still photo of a car supposedly speeding into a protester.
However, conservative journalist Stephen Miller found another photo from the incident that gave the full context.
The car had actually come to a stop and protesters climbed onto its hood.
Donald Trump Jr. retweeted the photo and exposed NPR’s lie.
Defund NPR… or at least stop their leftist bullshit already. https://t.co/tPW6XtDCLb

Only after being called out did NPR correct the story.
NPR soon issued the following update:
“[A] previous version of this story included a photo of a protester being struck by a car in Louisville, Kentucky. The photo, chosen by editors, does not appear to be an example of the assaults described in the story, and has been replaced. Police have not charged the driver, but have charged two of the protesters involved in that incident. Authorities continue to investigate.”
Not only did NPR get the story wrong, but they were 180 degrees from the truth.
The driver didn’t get arrested, the people who jumped on his car did.
NPR and other liberals will argue that the story is still “true,” but even that’s false.
There is no evidence of an uptick in politically motivated car attacks.
What some people are doing is not stopping when violent mobs surround their vehicles because several drivers have been dragged out of their car and beaten when they did.
For example, there was a terrible video of a truck driver stopping for a horde of protesters and then they swarmed on him like a scene from a zombie apocalypse.
While NPR and other outlets focus on fake acts of extremism, they ignore actual far-left domestic terrorism.
These willful and consistent distortions are exactly why the so-called “mainstream media” is the “enemy of the American people.”
