The stories that come out of the liberal media are interesting. They immediately proclaim solutions before the facts are even known. If it is a shooting, they jump on gun control and tougher purchase requirements. When it comes out the gun was stolen, they go silent. If a Black man is attacked, its racist. When it comes out it was a Black that attacked him, They go silent. If a Gay bar is attacked, its anti-gay. When it turns out it was someone who was Gay, they go silent. No retraction, no correction, no apology.  They leave their listeners thinking their original statement was correct to further their agenda. They have lost a lot of listeners who got wise to their tactics, but a lot of people still listen to them and don’t check the facts. There are no national alternatives except Fox news and sometimes the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) which reports on some American stories. While liberal politicians and financiers like George Soros control the major news networks and social media, many local stations, not affiliated with the national broadcasting companies wait until the facts are out before commenting on stories and Christian stations are usually good about getting the facts first. With social media blocking many large conservative organizations, it is important for people to search out the facts from conservative organizations or reliable public media and pass them on to their friends. Social media doesn’t have the capacity to monitor all posts yet, so they are concentrating on the big organizations for now. However, they have issued a call for an army of volunteers to monitor the web and report conservative postings that expose liberal lies. If they succeed, we will be no different than China or Russia who strictly control all media. Recently, someone shot up two electric substations and shut down electricity over a wide area. The media immediately stated it was White supremacists, even though nobody knows who did it or why. It could have been Muslim terrorists, Chinese or Russian operatives, or even an unhappy electric company employee who got fired and wanted to get back at the company.

The media is claiming a double standard of liability about what is posted on their site. When faced with a defamation suit for allowing repeated defamatory posts against a conservative Congressman, they claim they should be exempt from liability for what is posted since they cannot closely monitor what is posted. Yet there is clear evidence that they have selectively blocked campaign posts by conservative candidates costing them billions of dollars in campaign funds and an unknown number of votes, while allowing a free flow of posts by liberal candidates. Obviously they can control what is posted and choose to be selective in what they allow depending on who the posts favor politically. If they choose to closely monitor and censor what is posted, then they should be held responsible for irresponsible posts. They can’t have it both ways. Coordinated censorship between public media and social media pose a grave threat to democracy. An electorate cannot make a good  choice between candidates without accurate information about the candidates. They cannot vote intelligently if they only get information from one side and that is greatly distorted. Polls showed a dramatic shift in voter preference away from Donald Trump after accusations that he was working the Russians. The accusations were later proved to be false, but not until after the election when the damage was already done. While it was not enough to prevent his election, it could easily have done so. At that time, they controlled the public media but not the social media. Since then, they have gained control of the social media and numerous conservative candidates have lost elections after liberal candidates have made unfounded accusations just before the election. The media has picked up and broadcast the accusations while blocking attempts of the candidates to defend themselves. Polls show a dramatic shift in voter preference immediately after the accusations indicating that the accusations were instrumental in changing the outcomes of many of the elections. Clearly, the voters voted based on false information but the candidates who made the accusations and the media who supported them, have never been held accountable. Any accusations should be tried in a court of law, not in the media with no chance for the accused to defend themselves. Those who deliberately make false accusations in order to corrupt the election process should be prosecuted.

Violence and gun control-4-O

25 May

While the media continues to call for increased gun control, they ignore their own responsibility. After the shooting at Columbine High School hit the news, there were a number of similar school shootings that also drew extensive news coverage. In fact, the coverage probably encouraged the others by showing them that they could become famous by killing people. To someone who feels that no one will listen to him, it sounds like a good way to get people to remember them. However coverage of a particularly tragic school shooting ended abruptly. The media first broke the news that there had been a shooting and then abruptly cut off news coverage, without giving any details, when they apparently realized the repercussions from such coverage. Unlike the other events, only one person died but the shooter’s age made it particularly scary. I took note of it because the shooting took place at an elementary school on the school campus where I had gone to Jr. High school years before. I received the details from friends who still live there. A six-year old boy walked into his first grade class, pulled out a gun, and shot and killed a first grade girl, in front of his whole class. He had picked up the loaded gun that was laying around at home before he left for school. Most likely, he was influenced by the coverage of the school shootings which told him that the way to solve your problems is with a gun. We need to stop glorifying these people in public. When the publicity stops, they will need to seek other ways to get attention. Hopefully, ones that are less destructive.

All the major radio and TV networks, as well as many newspapers, get their news from a single source. That source is the Associated Press and it is very liberal. In addition, the networks themselves are supported by liberal individuals and businesses that dictate a liberal bias. As a result, we have been seeing a tremendous one-sided attack on conservatives by the media. Fox News has tried to remain fairly balanced and is one of the few sources of balanced news available. Christian radio and TV stations (many listener supported) and magazines are continuing to keep Conservatives abreast of the latest news but unfortunately, many conservatives don’t listen to Christian programs or read Christian magazines. Many conservatives and even Christians continue to get the bulk of their news from liberal news sources and hold liberal views on many social issues. Liberals found social media to be a great way to get their message out and have been dominating the social media. Conservatives have been slow to recognize its value, however an increasing number of conservative organizations have begun using it to reach conservatives that don’t access conservative radio, TV, and magazines.
