The Leftmedia Year in Review — It Was Ugly

Leftmedia viewership and revenue drop in the post-Trump era.

In the absence of Donald Trump to fuel their incessant news cycle churn in 2021, fodder that had increased their market share and advertising revenue over the previous four years, both viewership and readership of the Demos’ big Leftmedia outlets contracted significantly last year.

Thus, the Demos’ Big Tech First Amendment suppressors have redoubled their efforts to silence conservative voices in order to ensure their dominance as shapers of public opinion. Of course, that included coordinated efforts to silence The Patriot Post in our 25th year as an online publishing pioneer.

Looking back over the year past, if you missed these top news compendiums last week, we compiled our own Readers’ Choice: Best of Analysis for 2021 and Readers’ Choice: Best of Alexander for 2021. There was also our Readers’ Choice: Best of Cartoons & Memes for 2021 — always a favorite.

Our friends at other conservative media outlets also posted their top media fails as the Leftmedia churners struggle to regain market share.

The Washington Examiner posted its top worst media moments of 2021, leading off with the story we covered in great detail since its inception in 2016, the deep-state coup to take down Trump, starting with the setup for the entire charade — the Steele dossier — and the Washington Post’s efforts to cover the tracks on the biggest fake news story in decades. You can read about the additional gross media fails here, including the long-overdue departure of CNN’s Chris Cuomo and the inexcusable mischaracterization of the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

No shock here: CNN topped the list of the Media Research Center’s most biased news outlets, with Don Lemon beating out the disgraced and fired Chris Cuomo for most biased talkinghead.

The elitist Lemon took it upon himself to smear the name of all conservative grassroots Americans with this assessment of Trump voters: “If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd that you are in.” You can view the runner-ups here.

National Review posted its own list of the worst media fails, including the downplay of the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre.

Finally and notably, Leftmedia spin is one way to misrepresent news, but failure to cover a story is another way to misrepresent it. Fox News posted its top picks for “bias by omission: 10 major controversies the media avoided covering or downplayed in 2021.” Among big stories that were spiked was Joe Biden’s call offering an “aid bribe” to the president of Afghanistan if he would push stability “perception.”

Indeed, the most consequential Biden failure in his first year was his disgraceful surrender and retreat from Afghanistan and how that has emboldened our most dangerous adversaries, China and Russia. That disgrace was perhaps equaled by his failure to “shut down” the ChiCom Virus pandemic, much less even slow it down, as deaths on Biden’s watch exceeded those on Trump’s watch — even though Biden had the vaccine and all his mandates.

And now, leading off 2022 will be the Demos’ J6 anniversary party sponsored by the real enemies of the people. Indeed, the rioting Capitol protesters have proven to be fabulous fodder for Nancy Pelosi’s “insurrection inquisition” theater of the absurd.

As always, The Patriot Post has overwatch! Happy New Year!
