Never Pick A Fight With People Who Buy Ink By The Barrel . . . Attributed To Mark Twain – But Said By Many.
As I & Other Conservatives Have Written Ad Nauseum . . . The Media is Not on our Side, Unless we are on the Side of Creeping Communism (Socialism) & Journalistic Impropriety.
Recently . . . I Came to the Conclusion, that the Media has Become so Inundated in Socio/Political Non-Bipartisanship, that for them, I Seriously Believe that Today’s Media Cannot even See where they are Failing their Credo of Socio/Political Even-Handedness.
WHEN YOU “BELIEVE” THE LIE . . . IT’S THE TRUTH:
Through Many Generations Of Academic Inculcation . . . With the Brainwashing of Values – Today’s Media Really Believes in their Heart, that they are Warriors for Good, even though their Definition of Good is the Acceptance of Lies & Distortions for What they Believe is the “Common Good”, which is the Hallmark Battle-Cry (The Common Good) of Totalitarianism.
WHEN YOU BELIEVE YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY WHEN YOU’RE NOT – YOU’LL DO EVIL THINGS:
The Demonstrators, Mobs, Graffitists, Rioters, Looters, Arsonists & Violent Goons Rampaging Throughout America & Around the World Mostly Believe they are on the Right-Side of History . . . But so Did the Nazi Brownshirts, the East German Stasi, the Russian NKVD & KGB, the Communist Chinese Secret Police and all of the Armies of Henchmen & Women who Carried-Out & Still Carry-Out the Policies of Tyranny . . . In The Guise & Name Of The Public Good.
President Trump Has Said Words Akin To The Following . . .
The Democrats Are Dirty-Fighters & We Fight By The Rules Of The Marquess Of Queensbury.
WHEN DID THE MEDIA BECOME SO BIASED & DISHONEST?
The Simple Answer . . . Is When Mankind First Discovered Writing Implements.
However . . . Unfair & Dishonest Media was Evident even before the Discovery & Manufacture of the Gutenberg Press, as Pamphleteers Hand Wrote & Posted their Socio/Political Beliefs throughout Places of Congregation.
The Gutenberg Press (Mid 1400’s) Was Responsible For Putting “Journalism” On Steroids.
The Term Yellow Journalism – Goes all the Way Back in American History to the 1890’s, Not long after the Civil War, when it was Common-Place for Major Newspapers to use Fabricated, Un-Researched, Un-Founded & Totally Dishonest Media Stories Created & Published for the Expressed Purpose of Selling Titillating Newspapers – AND FOR GAINING POLITICAL FAVOR WITH THE RULING CLASS.
As the President of the United States of America . . . Abraham Lincoln Suspended Freedom of the Press (1st Amendment) & Habeas Corpus (Arrest Without Trial), because of the Hatefulness of the Media at that Time, even when Lincoln Won in 1860, what was Considered to be an Impossible Presidential Victory.
In The 1980’s, President Ronald Reagan survived Two Full Terms as the President of the United States of America Under Withering Media Lies, Distortions & Insults – Yet President Reagan Survived the Onslaught.
There is No Question that the Media . . . from the Time of the First Publications, even if they were Carved on a Cave Wall, Written on Papyrus, Printed on Pulp Paper or from Electronically Produced Print & Broadcast Media Via Audio/Video . . . That Journalism Has Been A Blessing & A Curse.
In Totalitarian Regimes . . . The Likes of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Communist China & Cuba – just to Mention a Few . . . the Media & Information has Been Carefully Controlled, Unlike in the United States of America & Canada, where Freedom of Expression in all Media Venues Is Thus Far Sacred.
But Even With A Hostile & Dishonest Media . . . The Truth Always Gets Out – Even In Totalitarian States . . . SO DON’T WORRY – The Dishonest Media Can Do, Write & Say whatever it Wants to Against President Trump, to the Point of NOT even Reporting on the Many Fabulous Trump Administration Successes, Including Domestic, Foreign, Trade, Science, Health & Military.
REMEMBER . . .
The Media Did All It Could To Destroy Abraham Lincoln – Yet Honest Abe Won. The Same With President Ronald Reagan.
While It Is True To A Great Extent . . . That it is not Wise to Pick a Fight with a Media Group that Buys Ink by the Barrel, it is Also True – That Every Truism Isn’t Always True, Especially in this Day & Age, when the People have Virtually Unlimited Sources of “Media” (Conventional & Online) to Decide for Ourselves on What is Real, Honest & Important to What we Believe.
TO THE TITLE OF THIS EDITORIAL:
History Is Replete With Stories Of David & Goliath, Where Men & Women of Great Character had Overcome Adversaries who were Far Greater in Size, Ability, Wealth & Numbers, when Common Sense Dictated that Resistance or Confrontation of the Individual to What & Who were Obviously Implacable Odds . . . Was A Fool’s Errand.
Yet – In Our World . . . The Underdogs – Regardless Of The Odds – Are Very Often The Victors Whom We Call Heroes.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE MEDIA DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW?
The Media Does Not Want The People To Know That Tens Of Thousands Of Americans Rally At The Drop Of A Hat For “Trump”.
