There’s an old saying you probably know.
Perception is reality.
Which is why FOX News is in serious trouble for what they aired about the American flag.
FOX News wouldn’t usually find themselves in this position.
However, over the past few years, FOX has been part of a seismic shift in how news media is handled.
They used to be committed to fair and balanced reporting.
But all you have to do is go to their website or watch their TV shows and you’ll see that fair and balanced now equates to liberals invading the network.
And that’s why they’re in trouble for what appears to be supporting the desecration of the American flag.
Following the rumored ICE raids that never happened, Hispanic protestors appeared at an ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado.
As hundreds gathered, one emboldened protestor decided the appropriate thing to do was to take down the ‘Stars and Stripes’ flying in front of the facility.
Once they took it down, they raised a Mexican flag in its place.
FOX News ran a clip on the incident on both national and local networks, but kept the report quite short and offered no additional commentary about the situation.
This caused some people to think that FOX News may have supported the desecration of the American flag.
Fortunately, that isn’t the case.
If viewers had paid closer attention, they would’ve noticed that the reporter didn’t offer any commentary regarding the morality of the situation because it isn’t his job to do so.
He simply reported the facts.
And that’s the problem with news media today.
Viewers are primed not to trust networks, even FOX, because they’re always on guard against being fed propaganda.
Yes, even FOX News occasionally lets personal and network opinions slip into their programming.
But it’s even worse when you consider what the other media outlets get away with.
So-called “mainstream” media networks like CNN, MSNBC, and ABC openly use their platforms to try and besmirch the country and the people who support her.
The “fake news” media is ruining the rest of the journalism industry.
No one knows what to believe anymore and even FOX News isn’t trusted like they once were.
The American people becoming entirely untrusting of the news media isn’t good.
It’s indicative of our country becoming ever more polarized.
We once used to be able to disagree and that was okay. It was okay to have different opinions.
But now we have primary sources of news dishing out lies at the behest of corrupt Democrats – and the disagreements are becoming more pronounced and the left is becoming more violent.
This won’t end well.
If the liberal media keeps filling the air with lies against the right, conservatives are going to snap one day and our great nation will be plunged into a time of chaos.
