The Liberal Media: We Own the News
By Todd Strandberg
One of the greatest political risks to America has long been the biased news coverage coming from the mainstream media. Since they control 85% of the news data that people consume each day, they have the ability to shape public opinion like no other organization. I think Satan spends more time in the media headquarters in New York and Hollywood than he does in Washington DC.
To prevent people from wondering why all the news networks have a leftist agenda, the liberal media has maintained the lie that they are nonpartisan in their coverage. Never mind the polls that show the press voted Democratic 90% in each election. When they are accused of being biased against a Republican, they claim to just be doing their job.
The liberal media has become so aggressive in spreading its leftist propaganda, they are no longer satisfied with the role of simply placing their fingers on the scale of public opinion. They want to control who has access to the American people.
Chuck Todd of Meet the Press recently said that he was not going to allow anyone on his show who questions Climate Change: “We’re not going to give time to climate deniers. The science is settled, even if political opinion is not. And we’re not going to confuse weather with climate. A heat wave is no more evidence that climate change exists than a blizzard means that it doesn’t, unless the blizzard hits Miami.” If there is a blizzard in New Orleans in May, we’re still good because Chuck Todd has set the standard so ridiculously high that Climate Change cannot be disproven.
When President Trump asked to address the nation about the $5 billion asked to help secure the southern border, the press doesn’t want to give him the time. They argued that Trump was a known liar, and he would expose their precious viewers to misinformation. They only relented in allowing him to speak under the condition that the two leading Democratic leaders were allowed to contradict him.
Liberal 100% ownership of news and entertainment allows them to green light a project that would not have made it in a politically balanced world. Annapurna Pictures has a movie in theaters called Vice. The film is simply a cheap attack on former vice-president Dick Cheney. The giveaway to the leftist agenda came when Christian Bale was given an award for his portrayal of Cheney. He got onstage and thanked Satan for giving him the ability to play someone so evil.
Showtime is about to air a series starring Russell Crowe as Roger Ailes, the deceased head of the Fox News Channel. The eight-episode program will focus on sexual harassment claims that several women at Fox News brought against Mr. Ailes. The series has been hit with a lawsuit seeking $750M because of slanderous portrayals of Laura Luhn, who in the film is essentially a pimp for the much-accused Ailes. There are no schools named after this man. Only liberals would think there is a need to create a series about a subject matter so gross.
Another way that the liberal media expresses its ownership over the news is their fixation with a system that will filter out fake news. For months they have talked about some type of rating system for all news providers. The latest plan being promoted is an app called NewsGuard. It’s by an organization called NewsGuard Technologies, which describes itself as simply a “news rating agency.” NewsGuard has received considerable attention in the mainstream media of late, having been the subject of a slew of articles in the Washington Post, the Hill, the Boston Globe, Politico, Bloomberg, and Wired.
NewsGuard is obviously funded by leftist interests, but my problem is not with their motivation. This app is dangerous because it’s focused on controlling who has access to readers. You can’t create honest journalism by having people voting on what news they like. Mankind’s evil nature hates the truth.
People have long feared that our nation would be enslaved by someone who sets himself up as a dictator. What has typically happened in the past is that a Hitler-like despot takes over all branches of government and then all forms of media. I think our greatest danger is the reverse being true. We already have a massive media that has an autocratic structure. All that is missing is a person who will play the role of tyrant.
Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke is being treated as a possible frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Even though he lost to Ted Cruz in November, the press still thinks he has some type of JFK or Obama quality. In a recent statement, he questioned whether the United States Constitution is still relevant today. A few years ago, the liberal media would pounce on anyone who made such a remark. Today, it’s not a political sin because the demonically controlled press is looking for a partner to share its evil agenda. Beto will likely crash and burn with 30 other candidates, but the environment is perfectly ready for a messiah to appear who has all the answers.
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Rev 13:1-4).
