The Media Enemies of Liberty
Trump declared, "Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News." CNN objects.
President Donald Trump’s comments on North Korea aren’t the only thing spinning Leftmedia heads. Wednesday, Trump declared, “So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have ‘begged’ for this deal — looked like war would break out. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!”
CNN host Wolf Blitzer protested quite a lot. “It’s one thing not to like the media,” he complained. “Everybody’s always criticizing us and not happy with our coverage. … But it’s another thing to say, ‘It’s not North Korea, it’s not Iran, it’s not Russia, it’s not China; it’s journalists … who are the enemy of the American people.’”
Worse, Blitzer whined, “A lot of his supporters believe that we are ‘the enemy of the American people.’ And that is really, really an awful situation. We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people.”
CNN has a funny way of showing it.
The Patriot Post exists because Mark Alexander saw a need to counter the Leftmedia monopoly on public opinion and, in 1996, founded this publication to lead the countercharge. We still eschew any advertising, opting to remain solely dependent on the support of our readers — grassroots Patriots who want news analysis that doesn’t parrot Beltway groupthink and that isn’t dictated by corporate advertisers. In other words, the defenders of Liberty have a voice against its opponents.
Trump’s point about “Fake News” being our country’s “biggest enemy” is broadly true. And CNN is among the worst offenders. Promoting themselves as objective news, CNN and other Leftmedia outlets instead push the leftist agenda, regularly distorting the truth to do it. So yes, when the mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda arm of one party — a party that wants to “fundamentally transform” our nation into a socialist welfare state — that media has become the enemy of American Liberty.
