Skip to comments.Liberals believe it is okay for the media to make up stories. Here's why.

A liberal friend and I had a conversation the other day after I called her and asked what her take was on the Comey hearing. The topic of discussion was the clear statement by Comey that the news stories about the Russian manipulation of our electoral process are false.
The woman first denied my supposition that the media stories were "made up" and that they had deliberately put out lies. As the conversation progressed and through calm, logical explanation that Comey had said the stories were false and my belief that those producing such stories should face libel charges for the printed word and slandar charges for the spoken word, she then said that journalists, unable to get "answers" to their questions, had to "make up" stories BECAUSE they could not get answers to their questions.
What she meant was, reporters could not get the answers THEY WANTED and instead were hearing the opposite of what they wanted to hear and therefore were "forced" to make up a narrative that fit their agenda and she was OKAY with that because certainly the conservative side was "hiding" something. All of this shows that she and millions of other Democrats are deluded and have believed outright lies by the media.
This points out the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives: Liberals have a total "situational ethics" moral foundation while conservatives to varying degrees have an absolute moral foundation. To the liberal, anything can be justified (the ends justifies the means) and to the conservative there is more clearly and "right and wrong" paradigm about life and government. In the absence of Biblical values, people will become "liberal". With Biblical teaching (where it is actually taught), people will become conservative.
Again the Bible has our answer:
And this one:
2 Thessalonians 2:9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false,
2 Thessalonians 2:12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
This is where we are at this time.
Benjamin Franklin made up fake news to roil the Brits. Reader beware.
Why would you want to have a conversation with such an awful person?
It’s not about facts or truth. It’s about the narrative, teh agenda.
See this for insight.
I can’t expect the unwashed to hold themselves to Judeo-Christian ethics. Most hard-core liberals are not particularly religious or use it as a cloak (see Sharpton, Jackson and Brazille).
Absent this dynamic, the liberal lives by the ethic of “the ends justifies the means”. That’s how they live with themselves about lying - they will tell themselves it is for the right cause.
How else can one determine what they actually think? You must have controlled conversations with them without being abrasive or ugly. Then, they'll tell you what they actually believe. As a result, here it is presented to you. Now, we know WHY they believe what they do...they have no regard for right and wrong. For them, ANYTHING is okay if it gets them what THEY want...truth be damned. It is a complete vacuum of values...a huge number of people have turned completely away from God. The solution is to make a sincere effort to get them to turn back to God.
Excellent post and thanks for the link.
Fake but accurate, baby. ‘Course, now they’ve proven accurate was never even a consideration. Next they’ll argue fake isn’t possible when a liberal says it. Similar to the claim that blacks can’t be racists.
Succinct and correct.
Advertisers also agree because they’re still buys spots
How deplorable - bitter clingers on to the truth.
Seems she was operating with a foundation though—hive thinking fantasy, where all the wrongs in the world are the fault of people that refuse to join the hive-thinking.
The leftists think that they benefit from the leftward bias in the media, but in reality, they are the biggest victims. Just like during the cold war when the west could laugh off the obvious lies coming from Pravda, the communists living under it were the ones who were suffering. Our media convinced these leftist dolts that Hillary would win in a landslide, and they constantly convince them that their support numbers are much higher than they are. They lose election after election and still can’t stop drinking the Kool-aid that comes from CNN.
Democrats know so much that just isn’t so.
When fired FBI Director James Comey testified to congress he admitted to telling President-Elect Donald Trump, and President Donald Trump, three times, he was never under investigation.
FBI Director Comey told President-elect Trump on January 6th he was not under investigation; Comey again told President Trump on January 27th he was not under investigation; and again on February 15th Director Comey told President Trump he was not under investigation.
However, more importantly, James Comey also admitted he told congressional leadership the exact same thing, repeatedly. Specifically, James Comey stated he informed:
James Comey personally told Republican and Democrat leadership, and both the Senate and House intelligence committees, that President Trump was not under investigation.
Think about that for a minute.
That means all of these professional politicians knew the media claims of President Trump being under investigation was a nothingburger; completely false.
To add to that list, James Comey said he briefed each of the intelligence committees that President Trump was never under investigation.
Do you realize how many people that is?
… All of them knew President Trump was not under investigation.
That also means that all of their key aides, staffers who assist each of the aforementioned politicians – and sit in on intelligence briefings, knew President Trump was not under investigation.
That network extends downstream to thousands of people on capitol hill, and everyone surrounding the White House, and everyone in key legislative contact, and they all knew President Trump was never under investigation.
That reality and acceptance also extends the concentric circles to those media voices and “sources” who were previously highlighted by WikiLeaks for close personal contact with each of the campaign teams and political constructs of those professional politicians.
The entire Deep State apparatchik knew President trump was not under investigation.
Heck, the leadership of the FBI and DOJ that James Comey often cites in his memos, leaks and explanations also knew President Trump was not under investigation; and all of the Washington Post, New York Times, WSJ and CNN stories were written based on these same “sources“. Sources who knew President Trump was never under investigation.
Other than one obtuse statement from what was apparently a frustrated Senator Chuck Grassley, the entire DC system kept a lid on the truth that President Trump was not ever under investigation.
In addition to his committee chairmanship, and direct position on the ‘gang-of-eight’ Representative Devin Nunes was even part of the Trump transition team. And James Comey stated he told Nunes that President Trump was not under investigation.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority leader Chuck Schumer were also personally told by James Comey that President Trump was not under investigation.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell were personally told by Comey that President Trump was not under investigation.
Representative Adam Schiff and Senator Mark Warner were personally told by FBI Director James Comey that President Trump was never under investigation.
How many interviews did Pelosi, Schumer, Ryan, McConnell, Schiff and Warner give where they allowed the media’s “Trump Under Investigation Narrative” to remain unchallenged?
Why would republicans Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Richard Burr, and to a lesser extent Devin Nunes, never directly challenge the media narrative in their interviews?
Think about the scope of all of it.
Do you still cling to the invisible thread that the UniParty doesn’t exist?
Do you still somehow reconcile the professionally self-serving “Deep State” is merely a myth?
Think about it.
He wears a bullet proof vest for you.
Far beyond every single modern presidential candidate to ever run for office, this is one man who didn’t need to.
This goes back to Dan Rather. They really believe that fake can be “accurate.”
All liberals make up stuff ‘for the greater good’.
Iowa recently put restrictions on abortions after the 20th week. All the liberals I know suddenly knew of relatives and personal friends who’d became pregnant from rape and just couldn’t decide to abort in 20 weeks. Unbelievable series of co-inky-dinks, and no one knew until the new law was proposed!
