When I was younger, my parents taught me about consequences.
When someone lies, cheats, or breaks the rules, they taught me that person gets punished.
As a result, I tried my best to tell the truth and follow the rules. I assumed that everyone else did the same thing as well.
When I got older and was introduced to the world of politics, however, I realized how naive that assumption truly was.
I quickly learned that there is a whole side of American politics that believes in lying, cheating, and breaking the rules in order to win. I learned that although many still believe in the rule of law, much of the Left does not.
That realization is one of the reasons I became a conservative. To this day, many of my beliefs are framed in the context of this dichotomy.
The election of Donald Trump proved that millions of Americans are like me: sick and tired of liberals, particularly in the media, getting away with telling lies.
Fortunately, it looks like the days of the liberal media’s reign of lies might soon be coming to end.
As reported by USA Today:
Time Inc., is cutting its global staff by 300 employees as part of a restructuring plan.
More than half of those eliminated positions are based in the U.S. and 40% of the reductions came from volunteers accepting buyout offers. Time CEO Rich Battista called the move “a difficult but necessary step,” in a memo to employees Tuesday obtained by USA TODAY.
“I thank each and every one of them for their hard work, dedication and service,” he said. “We are committed to supporting them during this transition with the utmost care, respect and professionalism.”
Overall, about 4% of the company’s employees are affected; Time Inc. had about 7,450 employees at the end of 2016.
Time has been one of the biggest mouthpieces for the liberal agenda. Alongside the liars at CNN, MSNBC, and countless other mainstream news organizations, Time has spent years pushing inaccurate, negative portrayals of conservatives.
In this regard, there has been a massive double standard when it comes to the media. Whenever one of the few conservatives in the media even comes close to expressing an opinion, the mainstream media shouts “fake news” and tries to discredit the report.
On the other hand, liberal newscasters and reporters get away with spreading blatant lies about President Trump and his allies. The gross over-exaggeration of the Russia investigation is a perfect example of this practice.
Thankfully, none of this comes without repercussions. The American people are beginning to see how dishonest their media is, and they are starting to seek other outlets through which they can stay informed. That is why Time and other liberal organizations have been forced to downsize their operations.
It is about time – no pun intended – that these organizations face consequences for their actions. If only after they lay people off will the media understand it is time to tell the truth, then so be it.
