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 was founded because Mark Alexander understood the danger to Liberty posed by the Leftmedia monopoly on public opinion. We have been leading the countercharge since 1996. Unlike every other media website, we reject advertising and the undue influence it has on editorial content, opting to remain solely reliant on the support of our readers — grassroots Patriots who can depend on our news analysis, which doesn’t parrot Beltway groupthink and 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.
