I hate being right all the time. But what did I tell you? I said that the media's sudden push with the 'crisis at the border' was merely to force Biden's hand and make him give a press conference. I said then that once he gave the conference the whole 'terror at the crossings' crisis would go happily to the sunset, and so it has.
At this point, I've gone four days since I saw one of the national news outlets cover the story, at least in the first hour. Before the conference this was the lead in story, top of the newscast, story number one, headline news. Since the conference? Gone.
Local has covered it, second hour style. It's on the ticker at the bottom, or sometime after a 'What's happening in Ohio' fluff piece. Other print outlets are breaking up and going 'small, local story' mode, downplaying the overall crisis, giving accounts of this or that particular individual, no major thing.
This is what we call the press. It long ago ceased being that. It is a ministry of lies and propaganda advocating for the 90 foot statue of the Leftist State. From fomenting race hate between Asians and Americans, to downplaying blacks as the main source of violence against Asians because - well, who are we fooling? They don't give two swinging damns or a hell about anything against Asians but that they can exploit it. In this case to shut down debate about Covid's origins. The same with BLM, #MeToo, or religious liberty or even freedom and equality in America.
I'm at the point where I can no longer respect a person who believes the news media. That's all news media by the way. Just because this or that outlet publishes a story I agree with doesn't change a thing. After all, how hypocritical of me would that be if suddenly I ignored the mountain range of evidence against the media just because on one fluke day it reported something I wanted to hear? And how stupid?
