(Tea Party PAC) – The mainstream media in America has proven that when it comes to modern journalism, objectivity is dead, having long ago gone the way of the dinosaur. The only thing that matters now is the narrative, crafting a story from a bunch of information that is designed to push a particular agenda — almost always leftist in nature — in order to force feed people with what to think.
Why do this?
The mainstream media, like all progressives, believes that the average American citizen is too stupid to be trusted with making their own decisions. Rather than just simply supply them with facts and expect them to draw their own conclusions — which may not turn out in favor of the agenda — it’s safer to just do all the work for them and assume they’re dumb. It’s insulting to say the least.
Well, Rep. Devin Nunes has a message for his fellow Republicans who talk frequently to the press and it’s something we all need to hear.
Check out the details via The Gateway Pundit:
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Laura Ingraham Thursday night on The Ingraham Angle following President Trump’s White House Acquittal speech.
President Trump praised the California lawmaker for exposing the deep state apparatus that worked to remove this president from office.
During his appearance on Thursday Rep. Nunes lauded President Trump for exposing the depth of corruption in the US mainstream media.
Rep. Devin Nunes: The most important thing the president has done of all the things that he’s done that are very important, but he’s finally outed the media. The media in this town has been corrupt and it took somebody like Trump to finally bring them out of their shell to where now they’ll just openly go out. They’ll tweet about it late at night. They get drunk, they send drunk tweets out. And they’re vicious to him and Republicans. I continue to try to get our Republicans to wake up in the capitol. We should not be talking to the mainstream media. They are assassins. They’re working for the other team.
A long, long time ago, in a galaxy that wasn’t all that far away, journalists used to be concerned about a little thing called the truth. They viewed their job as one of the most important careers a person could have, because it was their duty to inform the public on important issues and topics, supplying them with everything they needed to know to make good decisions.
They were also responsible for holding politicians accountable for their words and deeds. Now, the media has abandoned journalistic ethics and has crawled in bed with the very same people they are supposed to be holding accountable, all in the name of pushing a specific agenda down the throats of the American people. It’s insulting and disturbing.
Will journalism ever return to the days of objectivity? Will journalistic ethics ever become a thing again or has that ship already sailed out of the harbor? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
