Leftmedia Nazi 'Fact-Checking' Fail
USA Today backs bogus claim that Team Trump's eagle logo mimics the Nazi one.
A recent media “fact-check” story serves to reinforce the reality that the Leftmedia has become so infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome that it has lost any ability for objectivity and journalistic integrity, or even the inclination to differentiate between fact and opinion.
On Saturday, USA Today pushed an article “fact-checking” a claim that President Donald Trump’s campaign was producing T-shirts with a design similar to the Nazi eagle. Despite noting the fact that the U.S. has a long history of incorporating various eagle-based symbols into almost every element of government, including the official seal of the president of the United States, the Leftmedia rag still concluded that the Trump campaign is using a Nazi eagle, saying the charge is “TRUE, based on our research.”
So, how did USA Today come to its dubious conclusion that the Trump campaign’s eagle was Nazi inspired rather than American inspired? Well, basically because of circles — or at least that’s what USA Today’s opinion-checkers assert. Trump’s eagle is depicted holding a circular American flag, just like the Nazi eagle is depicted holding a circular swastika. Oh, the humanity!
In truth, the only reason for this ridiculous and stupid story was purely for the sake of concocting yet another anti-Trump propaganda hit piece. Ironically, USA Today thus took a page right out of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels’ playbook. As Goebbels famously advised, “Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.” And for USA Today and its Leftmedia comrades, that purpose is to do everything in their immense power to paint such a negative and monstrous caricature of Trump that nobody in their right mind would vote for him.
Update 7/16: USA Today has hilariously updated it’s ridiculous “fact-check” to say, “This story has been updated to reflect further reporting and analysis. The rating has been changed to inconclusive.” In other words, Oops. Never mind.
