The media keeps stirring up false fears that Donald Trump is unstable and could lead the world into another World War.
Well it turns out it’s not Trump who is incompetent—it’s the media itself.
They should, of all people, understand the consequences of their actions and words, especially in this globally charged atmosphere, what with Syria, Iran and North Korea all on fire, but it seems their daily immersion in the news has blinded them to how much damage they can do.
Either that, or they are utterly incompetent (and that is a distinct possibility).
It looks like both have played a role in a wayward headline that really could have led to disastrous consequences. Americans need to know about this so they can put the media on notice for their recklessness.
From Zero Hedge:
As expected – and feared – during the annual “Day of the Sun” celebration parade (celebrating the birth of the nation’s founder), Bloomberg blasted a headline that Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that North Korea has fired a projectile.
NORTH KOREA FIRES PROJECTILE, MEDIA SAYS: XINHUA
On its website, Bloomberg immediately picked up the story, and ran with “North Korea Fires Projectile, Media Says: Xinhua”
However, it appears that the headline scanning algos made a collosal error, and that Xinhua interpreted events quite incorrectly as it was, as CBC and Reuters reports, the appearance of a new submarine-launched missile at the parade for the first time:
NORTH KOREA SUBMARINE-LAUNCHED BALLISTIC MISSILE SEEN AT MILITARY PARADE FOR FIRST TIME: RTRS
Now that is just utter incompetence on Bloomberg’s part. With all the possible benefits of technology, every American needs to make sure not to check their minds at the door.
Reporters, especially those of the “reputable” mainstream media, need to use some blasted common sense before shooting out headlines that could start a war.
For once we have a President who does not allow its enemies to march towards weapons of mass destruction.
This may cause some global tensions in the short term as we stop our enemies from attaining their goal to destroy America, but in the long run Donald Trump is leading American—and the rest of the world—into a time of greater peace.
If only the media doesn’t sabotage him and incite countries to war.
