Learning Nothing, The Hoaxing Mainstream Media Doubles Down
By Nathan McDonald
The hoaxing, lying, dying Mainstream Media. Many names are given to this band of happy, merry hacks, that pretend to believe they are the “fourth estate”. Yet, those of us who are truly “awake” know better.
We can see them for exactly what they are, an extension of the corrupt establishment that attempts to rule over our daily lives and keep us in a constant state of confusion, informing us of half truths and guiding us sometimes gently, other times bluntly, away from the bigger picture.
During their onslaught against President-elect Donald Trump, the MSM put out hit piece after hit piece, filled with half truths and assumptions. They did whatever they could to get Hillary Clinton elected, discarding their honor, pride, and the truth in the process.
Fortunately for us in the liberty movement, they failed, and oh, how they failed. Throughout the campaign, I consistently wrote that the MSM was destroying their credibility in the process and causing people to snap out of their trances at a pace never before seen in western history.
You would think that this slice of humble pie would cause them to reassess their situation and take account of what they have done, possibly adjusting their strategy, or even apologizing to their dwindling readership. Yet, this is not the case – actually, it is quite the opposite.
The hoaxes continue, and the MSM has doubled down in its efforts to dismiss and discredit the very sources that largely resulted in Donald Trump getting elected – the Alternative Media, or as some like to call us, the NEW Mainstream Media.
These “lovers of freedom” have begun compiling lists that consist of any and all sources that disagree with their “loving” liberal agendas. Prominent names such as Ron Paul, the Drudge Report, and Zero Hedge are regularly included on these list of “fake news websites”.
If not labeling it as fake news, then it is simply being rubber stamped as ” Russian propaganda “. The absurdity of the MSM knows no bounds and is truly shocking to watch unfold.
But what do you expect? These are the organizations that dug their own graves through the lies they have told their supporters. Remember, these are the same organizations that told us Hillary Clinton had an over 90% chance of winning, up until the day of the election!
Perhaps we should simply let these organizations simply drift off into the sunset, as they continue to destroy themselves and what little credibility they have left. Perhaps, but not likely.
This is the time to continue down in our efforts. These are the ones who have declared war on us, the true lovers of free speech, liberty, and freedom. The time to double down OUR efforts is now. Press on and fight on.
