Media Lies

Hillary on her latest book promotion propaganda on the hard left liberal excuse for a program on by her publisher CBS, almost told the truth in spite of her whining about the reasons she lost the presidential race. Looking more like a beached walrus than a once national candidate, she blamed everyone except the true reason: herself but we all knew that. Her great ally is the propaganda media led by the lamestream networks and supplemented by a few alt-left cable channels, including the Washington Compost and New York Slimes fish wrappers.

Dennis Prager in his lengthy diatribe on “Here Are Some Key Ways the Mainstream Media Distorts the Truth” partially excerpted below describes in detail the slanting of the reporting by biased media and very accurately updates the sad state of contemporary media.

“Our leading media” are characterized by “indefensibly corrupt manipulations of language repeated incessantly.”

Patrick Lawrence in The Nation, Aug. 9, on the media’s reporting of the alleged collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

To understand America’s crises today, one must first understand what has happened to two institutions: the university and the news media. They do not regard their mission as educating and informing but indoctrinating.

In this column, I will focus on the media. I will dissect one issue that I know extremely well: the national and local coverage of the invitation extended to me to guest conduct the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The concert took place last week.

I am well aware that this event is far less significant than many other issues. But every aspect of the reporting of this issue applies to virtually every issue the media cover.

Therefore, understanding how The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and NPR covered my story leads to an almost perfect understanding of how the media cover every story where the left has a vested interest.

When it comes to straight news stories—say, an earthquake in Central America—the news media often do their job responsibly. But when a story has a left-wing interest, the media abandon straight news reporting and take on the role of advocates.

As I explained in detail in a previous column, the board of directors of the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra and its conductor, Guido Lamell, invited me to guest conduct a Haydn symphony at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
