Propaganda or Journalism
Propaganda or Journalism….
And why does it matter?
Let me preface this post with the assurance that I am not trying to talk you into being pro Trump nor am I trying to convince you that widespread election fraud took place in the 2020 Presidential election. I just want you to think.
Propaganda…. information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.
Journalism… the production and distribution of reports on current events based on facts and supported with proof or evidence
Look at the mainstream media headlines concerning the hearing today in Pennsylvania:
Trump phones in false claims at Pennsylvania Senate committee hearing on voting "irregularities … CBS
Trump invites Pennsylvania GOP lawmakers to White House after calling in to baseless voter fraud event… CNN
You may thing the President’s claims are “false” (CBS) and “baseless” (CNN), and they may be (I do not think so), but it is not the media’s job to tell us that. It’s their job to simply report what happened and let us decide what we think. Here is a link where you can watch and decide for yourself: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/11/25/watch_live_trump_legal_team_and_pa_republican_legislators_event_at_gettysburg.html#!
You may be thinking, “I didn’t vote for Trump and I don’t think there was any vote fraud, so I don’t care.” But you should care. Even if the media is reporting things you personally like, you need to be concerned that our media is promoting propaganda more than news. Why? Because: 1. The manipulation they exert over the American public may not always be what you agree with. 2. History does not give us a pretty picture of going down this path.
…. Regardless of your personal political beliefs and your views on this particular election, be concerned about the mainstream media in America and recognize there is a problem….
Again, I have no desire to convince you that there was voter fraud. I just want you to continue to think.
1. I personally believe there was incredible fraud. Not only that, I believe it was attempted in 2016 but it didn’t work because the President was underestimated. It’s perfectly fine if you do not. I could be wrong. I have no idea what the outcome of these lawsuits will be. My prayer is the truth, whatever that may be, will be exposed. Here is the point I want to make, there is enough reasonable evidence to question the election. Election and proof are not the same thing. The evidence will be proved or disproved in court, but there is enough evidence that we need answers. But the average American does not think there is substantial evidence because the MSM is not reporting it. And what they do report about the evidence, they try to make the President and his legal team look incompetent.
2. The left is pushing unity, which is ironic considering their own behavior since 2016. However, if Trumps supporters, which there are MANY, feel the election was stolen, how can there be unity? What difference does it make if the election is looked at for fraud? If there is not fraud, there is no problem. And assuming there is no fraud, and the left is so eager for unity, I would think they would be understanding about letting this play out to everyone’s satisfaction that no fraud was involved. Hmmm…. makes me wonder.
3. The bullying and threatening is also a little suspicious. Michigan. Enough said.
4. And what is the plan? Again, regardless of what you are hearing from the MSM, there is evidence. Will fraud be found? I do not know. If there was fraud, as I believe, I hope it is uncovered, the election is overturned, and people go to jail. But even if some fraud is uncovered, and some will be because there are no elections without some fraud, it may be that the result is just putting protocol into place so that it does not happen again. Regardless, the MSM knows that there is enough evidence they have not reported on to cause something to happen . At least some little kernel of truth is going to come out. They know that. It’s too big not to have some impact. So why continue to not honestly report on it and report on it without their bias against the President? I think their first plan is to keep bullying and buying time until it’s too late to change the election. And their backup plan if that fails? To have the American people so convinced there could possibly be no fraud that if the election is overturned, they will believe it was Trump who stole it.
I do not seek to change your opinion on the President or on election fraud, only on the media. Be aware that we are being manipulated.
