(Tea Party PAC) – The vast majority of the voices in the mainstream media are left-leaning and hardly what you’d call shy about expressing their true thoughts and feelings about President Trump. In fact, most publications and news networks pretty much work around the clock to oppose the president, his agenda, and all of those who support him, opting instead to perform as the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party.
This kind of bias was put on full display after at least eight authors for the NY Times shared a quote that was deceptively edited Monday from Trump’s recent call with state governors. The quote was edited in such a way as to give the false impression that President Trump is denying federal support for ventilators that hospitals need to help treat coronavirus patients.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
In his message, the president recommended that states procure respirators and ventilators because it would be faster — but added that the federal government “will be backing you.”
The Times journalists omitted the bulk of the president’s statement as they shared the story on social media. The misleading, partial quote was also boosted by a CNN correspondent and became the lead headline at the left-wing Huffington Post.
Despite growing online backlash to this misinformation, the journalists have yet to delete or retract their comments.
The eight journalists tweeted a link to a Times article published Monday that contains President Trump’s full statement to state governors in which the president recommended that they shouldn’t wait for the federal government to fill the growing demand for respirators needed to treat people with coronavirus.
The left is now placing their anti-Trump agenda above the safety and security of the citizens of the United States, making the destruction of their nemesis of more value than fulfilling their duties as journalists to provide truth and facts to a scared and panicky public.
Here’s what the president actually said:
“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” President Trump told the governors during the Monday conference call. “We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
In the body portion of the posts created by these authors, the bulk of what the president said was left out, leaving the comments in a void without their proper context. This is what passes for journalism these days for liberals. Never let a crisis go to waste when you can hijack it and make it about trashing President Trump.
Times national correspondent Julie Bosman tweeted only the first third of the president’s statement, leaving out the part where he said the federal government will back the states.

Bosman, reacting to intense backlash, defended herself by inaccurately claiming that “the second part of the quote repeats the first part, twice.” In fact, the second part of the president’s statement says that the federal government “will be backing you [the states].”
Is there a reason you cut off the quote where you did?

Here’s a sample of the nonsense perpetuated by some of the other authors:
Trump told governors this morning they are on their own:

Gay was recently involved in one of the most embarrassing gaffes ever made on public television when she made an appearance on MSNBC with anchor Brian Williams and horrifically botched some basic math to claim that billionaire Michael Bloomberg could have “given every American a million dollars.”
Yeah….no. In fact, the money he blew on his attempt to buy out the Democratic presidential nomination only amounted to $2 a person.
Trump tells governors not to wait for federal government to look for needed medical equipment on their own. “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment—try getting it yourselves,” he told them on the call, according to recording obtained by @jmartNYT https://t.co/vlOR08SeXK

The lesson here, ladies and gentlemen, is that unless you’ve heard something completely and fully straight from the president or anyone else for that matter, you probably should take what you read in the news with a grain of salt.
Media outlets have proven the agenda against Trump is more important than the truth, which truly signals the death of honest journalism.
