The media’s biased against conservative leadership has hit an all-time low. We saw it growing during the 80’s and 90’s when Reagan and Bush were president. We thought it hit its peak during George W. Bush’s presidency. While the man worked hard to protect America after 9-11 (with zero terror attacks), all the media did was harp on his flaws.
Now the vile hatred the media has towards conservative is downright chronic. They don’t seem to be able to look at the facts clearly. Their bias borders on corruption, plain and simple. These liberal outlets refuse to report the news fairly. They are a disgrace to everything the First Amendment stands for.
But it’s more than just the outlets. Retired, old, and outdated news journalists feel compelled to rear their ugly heads and join the fray.
Even though Dan Rather has long been put out to pasture, he still thinks his opinion matters. In a desperate attempt to feel relevant again, he went online to spew more inane garbage at GOP candidate Donald Trump.
Disgraced former CBS news anchor Dan Rather is out with a haughty statement on Facebook, urging all of his fellow news anchors and mainstream media editors to destroy Donald Trump and his supporters.
“This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign,” Rather said, referring to the Republican presidential nominee’s comments about defending the Second Amendment.
Rather, along with other biased people in the media, is referring to an off-handed remark Trump made. Although it was very clear the statement was made in jest, the corrupt media tried to make it look like Trump was calling for Hillary Clinton’s assassination.
Ridiculous, to be sure. Trump doesn’t need to have her assassinated. He will destroy her come November. But that has not stopped the corrupt mainstream media from willfully lying about the comment. What Rather has said is simply nonsensical and shameful.
Rather challenged the media to hold Trump accountable for his words, urging them to do more to try to shame his supporters.
“We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrow’s newspapers do it justice,” he said. “We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.”
When have we ever seen the media trying to shame voters in history? Yet this isn’t the first time a public figure has come out to directly attack Americans for supporting Trump.
They know Trump is too strong to be knocked out. So instead of taking on the man himself, they’re trying to violate the will of the American voter, thinking if they shame us we will decide not to vote or express our viewsx.
Our right to choose our candidate is sacred and guaranteed by the Constitution, so is our Freedom of Speech. Nobody has the right to suppress someone for supporting a candidate or speaking their mind. What Rather has suggested is un-American, shameful, and disgusting. A man who has worked in the public eye for decades should know better.
But that’s how far the media has fallen. So threatened by what Trump can do as president, they have completely rejected any ethics they had left. There is no low they won’t stoop to, if it will help them attack Trump and propel a corrupt politician into the White House.
But they know, ultimately, they will lose, so long as the American people have their say.
Be sure you’re registered to vote and go out this November. Send a message to the media that you won’t be bullied.
