The Media Is Not Biased
There are a few sentences that are part of a larger speech that perfectly describes why Americans wrongfully distrust the media. "There is no such thing at this date of the world's history in America as an independent press. You know it, and I know it." "The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread." "We are the tools and the vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks. They pull strings, and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." - John Swinton, circa 1880, chief editorial writer of the New York Times, when asked to toast an independent press in a gathering at the National Press Club. Swinton realized that there was no independent press. But things have gotten a lot worse since he spoke those words. Today, there is nearly no such thing as the press as almost every major network that ceremoniously delivers the weather, a headline, and the stock market prices cloaks itself with the label of media. Unless along with the COVID-19 virus, America suffers from an amnesia virus, everyone is aware that enormous corporations have established and fund communications networks designed to misinform and mislead the American public. These communication entities give the outward appearance that they perform the much-needed government watchdog work of the media. In fact, they are nothing more than the suppliers of anti-American propaganda in costume; public relations actors, leftist activists, and immature sycophant extremists that comprise the bulk of these DEMPNETS (Democrat Propaganda Networks). The American citizen blessed with founding documents that establish their rights given to them by God is a free, powerful, and dangerous individual. There are two ways to control such a person. The first is through deception, and the second is to erode the connection between the founding documents and God. The majority of Americans are God-fearing believers in the U.S. Constitution. They want nothing more than to live free, work for their keep, and raise a healthy family. But they believe that a large percentage of the media is biased, so they try to do their best to separate what is true from what is a lie. The mistake they make is their belief that the media they watch is biased. The media is not biased because to be biased, it must first be the media. And it isn't. Part of this confusion originates from well-meaning popular conservative radio talk shows and cable television programs that misidentify dempnets as the media. They use phrases such as "fake news or media mob" and "drive-by media," and that wrongfully creates an association between these dempnets and objective news/media networks. It's like identifying a shoe salesman pretending to be a doctor as a bad doctor if he messes up an operation. He's not a doctor. It makes sense that he ruined an operation. Just as dempnets are not the media, and should/must lie and be deceptive to the American people. There's a powerful story compiled from works written by a Priest named Father Demello. It starts with a rabbit walking along a bank of a river. He sees a crocodile who is trapped in a net. The crocodile says, "Would you have pity on me and release me? I came this morning in search of food for my young ones and got caught in this trap!" So the rabbit says, "If I help you out of that trap, you'd grab me and kill me." The crocodile responds, "Do you think I would do that to my liberator?" So the rabbit sees an owl sitting in a nearby tree looking on. "Should I trust the crocodile?" asks the rabbit to the owl. The owl looks over to the trapped crocodile and asks, "Would you kill the rabbit if he releases you from the net?" The crocodile responds, "Oh no, no, I would be filled with gratitude if the rabbit helped me." So the owl tells the rabbit, "The crocodile seems sincere. Go ahead and let him out." "Okay," said the rabbit, and as soon as the crocodile was released from the net, he pounced on the rabbit and killed him. Horrified, the owl yelled, "How could you do such a thing?" The crocodile gave a perplexed look at the owl and said. "What are you talking about? I'm a crocodile." Dempnets are Dempnets and must behave like Dempnets 100% of the time. It is our mistake to believe they are part of the media and will act as the media. Words matter. Perception matters. Part of the remedy to clear up the misunderstanding between what is legitimate media and what is a deceptive propaganda establishment is the continual use of the proper identification of each.
