The fake news media really outdid themselves this time.
Concern over the Wuhan virus has caused big media to ratchet up their overheated rhetoric even more.
And The New York Times accused Fox News of something unspeakable.
The New York Times continues to shred its dwindling credibility with horrendous columns.
The paper of record has promoted trash like their nostalgic 100-year retrospective on Communism that only made passing references to the gulags and forced famines and genocides, and the 1619 Project, which aimed to reorient the founding of America around the institution of slavery.
In the midst of the Wuhan virus, the Times’s coverage has only gotten worse.
They derided Senator Tom Cotton for propagating a “debunked” theory that the coronavirus might’ve originated in a biolab in Wuhan, which has now become the belief of U.S. officials.
Another target of the Times is conservative media, and specifically Fox News.
Instead of placing the blame on China for the mayhem of the Wuhan virus, the Times thought they would be better served attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The Times made the disgusting move of blaming Hannity for a man’s death at the hands of the coronavirus.
Ginia Bellafante of The New York Times wrote a piece that said Hannity is to blame for the death of 74-year-old Joe Joyce who traveled on a cruise ship to Spain on March 1st.
On April 9th, Joyce died from the Wuhan virus.
However, in Bellafante’s piece, she acknowledged that Hannity made comments about the coronavirus being overblown on March 8th.
That means Joyce and his wife set sail a week before Hannity even made his comment.
So Bellafante and other leftists ran with the narrative that Hannity was responsible for Joyce’s death despite the inconvenient timeline.
Even more disgusting is that on February 27th, Bellafante tweeted:
“I fundamentally don’t understand the panic: incidence of the disease is declining in China. Virus is not deadly in vast majority of cases. Production and so on will slow down and will obviously rebound.”
This is a prime example of why Donald Trump is right to call the corporate press the enemy of the American people.
They write fake news about their political adversaries, and then paper over their mistakes as if they never happened.
It’s a disgrace that Bellafante could downplay the virus, and then not only blame Hannity for saying something similar, but accuse him of killing a man with his rhetoric.
Trump isn’t just at war with the Democrats.
He’s at war with the fake news media, and it’s an incredibly important battle.
We can’t have a free country if the American people are getting nothing but propaganda.
American citizens can’t make informed decisions if they’re being fed nothing but lies.
Thankfully, trust in big media is on the decline.
It’s important to constantly call out the fake news so more people can see what’s really going on.
