If there’s one thing President Trump has done, it’s coin the phrase…“fake news”. I have never seen anything like, the treatment from the press, towards the office of the President. The press has proven themselves to be disgraceful given their lack of respect for Trump IMO.
The press is supposed to be the force that keeps things honest. They work for what’s right and expose what’s wrong? They are theoretically supposed to be the eyes and ears of those that love their country and desire to do the things necessary to promote truth, peace, justice and all the factors required to form the perfect…American way. Something though, has changed? That isn’t the mode of our current press. They have an agenda that’s completely different? I can’t fully understand what it actually is though, so I started this thread?
Why is the press so “fake”? Why do they distort the truth? Do they distort the truth IYO? The truth…at least in my mind…is what they supposedly and historically and what our forefathers, when designing our Constitution…stand for?
The press has been given a special place by our forefathers, who again IMO believed that they would keep the dishonest…honest? They’d be the eyes and ears of those committed in their daily lives, a source, that they could know was honest and a basis to make their vote, promoting what they believed in?
Something has changed though? The current press appears to take what’s honest and present it in a dishonest manner? Walter Cronkite and what I thought he represented, has surely passed. What we have entered into is a new era. It’s one of fake news…where the recipient has to have a guard up, that those American citizens previously, did not need? Historically, a recipient could take what they were hearing on the “news” and for the most part, believe it to be true…thus helping guide their steps going forward. Am I naive in this conclusion?
Sadly…that’s not the case today. The press isn’t neutral. They have turned into a machine designed to manipulate the masses. The press today has become a sheople trough, asking sheople to feed and regurgibleet this message into the circle they congregate in.
Some of you may have noticed my usage of the world sheople, more now, than at any time since I’ve been here in Hannity Land? It’s what I believe our press has “evolved” into? This is a topic of paramount importance to all of us…ALL OF US? What say you? Do you see the press as having evolved into an extension of a political agenda or do you think it’s always been this way or is it somewhere in between? I think this is new? What say you?
