Why Many of Todayís News Reporters Believe Itís Their Duty to Lie to You

President Donald Trump rolled out a new immigration plan in a press conference held in the White House Rose Garden on May 16 that focused on addressing the major flaws in America’s current immigration laws and border control system.

During his presentation of his new plan, Trump said the following:

“We must also restore the integrity of our broken asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum-seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims—these are frivolous claims—to gain admission into our country. Asylum abuse also strains our public school systems, our hospitals, and local shelters, using funds that should—and that have to—go to elderly veterans, at-risk youth, Americans in poverty, and those in genuine need of protection. We’re using the funds that should be going to them. And that shouldn’t happen.”

Trump finished by saying: “My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum-seekers by screening out the meritless claims. If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t, you will promptly be returned home.”

In an act of brazen dishonesty, here’s how CNN’s Jim Acosta summarized on Twitter for his audience what the president had said:

“Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: ‘These are frivolous claims.'”

They lie because they are enemies who seek to dominate, and eventually eliminate, us. They should be treated as such.

Acosta in particular should be in Gitmo for that stunt he pulled at the NK summit.

There’s a radical base of fascist liberals who hate so fervently that they don’t care if the negative stories are true or not.

But Bush League Republicans lying to us is OK and we should keep voting for them, right?

One of my vendors (that I have no choice over) insists on including the Associated Press fakenews feed on their main web page and provide no option to select another source or eliminate the indoctrination.

This morning’s story on the Euro elections that showed wins by right and left wingers? “European Union leaders and party officials plotted strategy Monday after European Parliament elections ended the domination of the main center-right and center-left parties and revealed an altered political landscape where the far-right and environmentalists stand as forces to be reckoned with.”

So according to the crAP, one side is the “far-right” (intentionally word-crafted to sound like extremists) and the other side are the “environmentalists”, fully intended to sound like peace-loving, concerned people who just want to save the earth. Yeah, no bias there.

There are, of course, more flagrant examples on a daily (actually hourly) basis, but this morning that one really grabbed me.

And what of their number who wear R jerseys that seek amnesty for illegal aliens with the same goal in mind?

In answer to the headline, a jillion words later the writer says...

“They were told that it was their public duty to do this.”

If I have saved anyone from reading a long rambling dissertation, I’ve done my good deed for today.

Flimsey Grahamnesty and Micro Rubio want to give those totalitarian liars a permanent majority with amnesty for illegal aliens.

What does that make them?

Every day I hear the same liberal lies coming out of the mouths of my liberal co-workers. They can not tell you where they heard it, but represent it as their own thought and memories. You can't argue the logic with them as the whole idea has been implanted in their head, and they did not come to the conclusion themselves.
Propaganda is a powerful tool and definitely does work, well. You would never ever change these people's minds even if you shoved inarguable evidence under their noses.

Thanks for posting that - needed another copy to reference.

The inability of the delusional Left to recognize this programming astounds me.

The GOP is the biggest con going...vote for us and we will do nothing..

at least the democrats fight for what they want.,.

Time for a third party or a revolt by the few who support Trump..

Trump has exposed the DC swamp for all to see..

They go there and make themselves rich...

And if your work for the government in DC ..directly or indirectly there is never a recession

We need to Cantorize the weasels like we did to that weasel Eric Cantor.
Take over the GOP from the Bush League Republicans.
Until we do they will keep working to give the Democrats a permanent majority.

Bump that. I came to that conclusion a while ago. However, around election time, I try to discourage them from voting by saying things like the economy is roaring and no incumbent president loses during such times, etc.

“BUT SURELY, IF THIS WORLD CONSPIRACY WERE TRUE I WOULD HAVE HEARD ABOUT IT IN THE DAILY NEWS!”

John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of America’s best loved newspapermen. Called by his peers “The Dean of his Profession”, John was asked in 1953 to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:

“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. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists 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. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

RICHARD M. COHAN, Senior Producer of CBS political news said: “We are going to impose OUR AGENDA on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that WE choose to deal with.”

RICHARD SALANT, former President of CBS News stated: “Our job is to give people not what they want, but what WE decide they ought to have.”

And what is their “agenda”? What do they believe we, the American people THE COMMON HERD, “...ought to have”? Here is the answer:
