During the Gulf War in 1991, CNN shined like no other news network before. Their access to official military footage, embedded reporters, and around-the-clock coverage of the conflict reset the standard for war reporting, and we all tuned into the network to watch America kick the crap out of Saddam Hussein. It was at this time that CNN’s slogan of “The most trusted name in news” might have been accurate. But not anymore.
In the case of Jussie Smollett, the saga that has evolved this last year has been more of a comedy than the drama Smollett had written and acted out. Every facet of this case proved the hoax that Smollett attempted to perpetrate on the American public. In an almost smug disregard for the truth and the common sense of everyone familiar with the case, he insisted on defending his innocence.
The absolute truth takes far too much effort to uncover, so they use their truth that fits the narrative. Talking heads on CNN, MSNBC, and the three major broadcast networks won awards for their reporting of the Russia Hoax and the Steele Dossier. They are about as valuable as the Emmy awarded to Andrew Cuomo. They are bogus, self-serving awards given to charlatans for reporting on fictional stories. Today, the government lies, and the media nods and makes it their truth, as long as it beats down the Right.
The MSM is leaning more towards the AOCs of Washington than Joe Manchin. They should not be leaning either way. They should be blind to politics and call it straight. Can we get back on track? Maybe, but it will take the dollars of the free market to force the pendulum back to the middle.
Journalistic principles were disregarded, activists disguised as journalists helped prop up Lee’s lie as they promoted their America-is-bad narrative, and once again our mainstream media’s credibility has been severely damaged. These people are simply terrible at what they do.
In this installment of our weekly conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative contrast the coverage and angle of the Atlanta, GA shooting versus the Boulder, CO shooting.
In this installment of our weekly conversation, The Blue State Conservative considers the complete evaporation of the mainstream media’s credibility in the wake of CNN’s handling of Chris Cuomo’s reporting on his brother Andrew’s ongoing scandals.
We’re in a culture war that’s just beginning to heat up, and we should act accordingly. And while our opponents may have a massive head start on us, that gap is ripe with opportunity for conservative businesses to fill the subsequent voids.
The only way for citizens in a republic to hold their elected officials accountable is at the ballot box. Do a good job with integrity and you get reelected. Do a lousy job or engage in corruption and you get voted out. That answerability is the most critical aspect of our form of government, and an honest media that accurately reports the facts regarding those who would be elected is arguably the most important player in the electoral process.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope discuss how Americans can and must receive fair and honest news from alternative media sources under a Biden-Harris presidency.
#4 Brian Stelter (AKA Cryin’ Brian) –
Until recently, Stelter was best known for frequent on-air sobbing at a level to make even colleague Don Lemon blush. But in late-October, Stelter gained further notoriety when he came to the defense of fellow CNN personality Jeffery Toobin. Toobin, as you may recall, was caught spanking his monkey during a Zoom call with colleagues from CNN and The New Yorker. So what was Stelter’s defense of Toobin? Stelter explained that Toobin’s behavior was “an accident.” Yup, because that type of thing happens all the time, don’t you know. One minute, everything is fine, you’re on a Zoom call interacting with folks, and then wham! All of sudden, you’re choking your chicken… accidentally.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope look back on the coverage – and sometimes lack of coverage – of issues critical to voters. Is this the Republicans version of Russia, Russia, Russia, or is there something more sinister going on?
The Left and their media can’t afford to have President Trump’s positions legitimized. If someone comes out and backs Trump’s COVID-19 plans, the media have to cover it up. They have to discredit them, even if that means winking and nodding to Joe Biden’s absurd claim that 44,000 scientists/doctors are “nobody.”
I get the whole “Go to work in flip-flops and hang out by the office ping pong table at lunch” culture that Big Tech has going on. It must be a cool environment to work in, truly. But for those who missed it, Jack Dorsey was channeling his inner Jeff Spicoli during a televised Senate hearing that was watched by millions of people.
The media’s indifference to the Jeffery Toobin scandal is just one more example of their aversion to the truth. Engaging in self-abuse while one interacts with their colleagues during a Zoom meeting is repulsive, regardless of whether or not one’s laptop’s camera is functioning, and regardless of how boring that meeting might be.
