The media has pulled out all the stops to malign and derail Donald Trump’s candidacy for President.
Despite their bullying tactics, he has continued to enjoy a staggering rise in popularity, largely due to the America public’s disdain for the mainstream media and their hopes that Trump can save the nation.
The response from news outlets, of course, is to get even more aggressive and ugly.
Recently a newspaper has hit an all-time low, unveiling what is sure to be the least-respectable act a body of journalism has ever produced.
Via The Daily Mail:
The Boston Globe has unveiled a bogus Sunday edition lampooning Donald Trump – and giving a chilling glimpse of what America would be like if he became President.
The fake edition paints America as a riot-torn country where curfews are enforced as mass deportations loom, while markets around the world collapse as a result of impending trade wars with Mexico and China.
Meanwhile, in this alternative reality, riots are erupting and curfews get extended across the country.
‘President Trump has set in motion one of his most controversial campaign promises, calling on Congress to fund a “massive deportation force” by tripling the number of federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents,’ the story begins.
Above the article, a photo of the would-be President is captioned: ‘Trump: Deport illegals “so fast your head will spin”‘.
On the right of the front page, another story announces: ‘Markets sink as trade wars loom’.
‘Worldwide stocks plunged again Friday, completing the worst month on record as trade wars with both China and Mexico seem imminent,’ the article says.
Further down the front page, the alternative Boston Globe reports troubles halting the construction of a wall at the Mexican border ‘after Mexico refused to pay’, deriding one of Trump’s most famous campaign promises.
What a sad state of affairs. Has American journalism fallen so low that it’s acceptable for a newspaper to flagrantly voice their bias on the front page? And they wonder why newspapers are a rapidly dying media.
This kind of gross misrepresentation and deception on the part of the media would not be tolerated a generation ago. But in our Twitter-driven landscape, where knee-jerk reactions are the headlines, traditional newspapers can print what they want, without accountability.
Our friends at Allen B West had some insightful comparisons to make:
Gee, anyone want to take a stab at what the headlines should have been if the media had been bold enough to use such a tactic for Barack Obama when he ran back in 2008 or 2012? How about:
- U.S. unleashes BILLIONS to enemies including Iran to help boost global terrorism
- President attends baseball game with communist leader, does the tango while world burns
- U.S. takes backseat to Russia and China as world leaders
- Race relations suffer huge setbacks; division that hasn’t been seen in decades
- Americans killed; president golfs
- First Amendment abolished: religious freedom to apply only under select circumstances, while speech now limited to only that which offends no one
- Wielding bacon now categorized as ‘hate crime’
Not so unimaginable, eight years down the road. So while the media has always treated Obama with kid gloves, overlooking his many slights and injustices against our country, they take cheap shots at Trump. That’s simply un-American and against everything a Free Press should stand for.
The only way we can stop this sort of tide of yellow journalism is to simply refuse to support these publications.
