CNN’s ratings continue to crater.
Their all-out assault on Donald Trump has cost them their last shred of credibility.
And now CNN told one massive lie that just sunk the network.
Big media is in a constant state of panic.
Their stranglehold on the national narrative is slipping away, and it’s never coming back.
One of their desperate appeals for authority is denigrating anyone with differing opinions.
But this is a much deeper philosophical question.
People on the right believe people on the left are wrong.
But people on the left believe people on the right are evil.
This imbalance has serious ramifications for the concept of individual liberty.
Since leftists believe that their ideological opponents are truly evil, their opinions shouldn’t be heard.
And CNN columnist Jill Filipovic made that very clear.
During a panel discussion on CNN, Filipovic laughably claimed that there is essentially no such thing as credible right-wing media.
Filipovic said, “I think one thing I am troubled by is discussing this as if it’s kind of a both sides problem. You know, you have a right-wing media apparatus, you have a liberal-media apparatus, and what you believe depends on where you get your news. I’m not sure that’s right. I think we have a propaganda apparatus and I think we have a media apparatus that is trying to tell the truth and tell the whole story.”
How convenient that Filipovic believes she’s on the side of the angels while right-wingers are nothing but propagandists and conspiracy theorists.
But it’s outlets like CNN that have killed their own credibility.
If these so-called right-wing sources were so wrong, they wouldn’t have followers.
But as Margaret Thatcher pointed out, “The facts of life are conservative.”
The leftist narrative simply isn’t true, and no amount of propaganda will make it so.
CNN and other networks spent years trying to convince the American people that the President of the United States was in cahoots with the president of Russia.
That is the epitome of a conspiracy theory, yet Filipovic and her colleagues believe they have some claim to journalist integrity.
And it’s not just CNN, it’s the entire Democrat Media Complex.
Another stark example of big media malfeasance occurred when Donald Trump announced a partial withdrawal from Syria.
The so-called mainstream claimed that the Kurds would be slaughtered as a result of Trump’s “reckless” decision.
ABC News even ran a piece showing the Kurds allegedly under siege from Turkish forces.
It turned out the explosive images were from a gun show in Kentucky.
Big media doesn’t have any room to talk about journalistic standards, and certainly not morality.
ABC News also killed the Jeffrey Epstein scandal story, and were more interested in the person that leaked the news of the story being nixed than why it was spiked in the first place.
Filipovic might be right.
There might be a media apparatus and a propaganda apparatus.
She’s just wrong about the orientation.
