Back in the good ol’ days, I used to watch CNN. I thought they were a pretty respectable news network. This was in the ’90’s and CNN, for me, was the legit news station to watch. I mean, I had no cause to question the integrity of their stories. It just sounded like news to me. I mean, every news station seemed to be pretty unbiased during that time. Think straight-forward and truthful, right?
Well, fast forward to the future. I had dropped out of the the news ring and stopped watching. I was so uninterested in any kind of news. Too messy and negative. Unless it was something big, I avoided the news. I was perfectly happy with just bingeing on my K-dramas.
But then Trump got elected and the Russian Collusion hoax started playing out. I noticed the media went nuts. I couldn’t help but notice because my husband tuned in every. second. of. the. day. It was annoying. And the news was smack-centered in the living room. It was unavoidable. So, I started watching more, and something caught my attention.
Something was happening and it smelled pretty fishy.
I noticed, President Trump was constantly calling out CNN and the other MSM networks as “fake news.” I thought, how odd. Isn’t fake news like tabloid tv or the National Inquirer? But POTUS was constantly calling them out!
This had really caught my attention. What the “H” is fake news. I’m lost. Well, I watched, I listened, I researched – Awakened.
I watched excerpts of CNN and MSM news compiled as excerpts. I’ve listened to citizen journalists, like Dan Bongino and Amazing Polly – to get perspective. I’ve read left wing and right wing articles to get both sides.
At the end, CNN and MSM talking points sounded very “propagandish”. Even more, some points that were newsworthy, were not even covered!
Truth in reporting? Whoa, am I in communist China? Hello, propaganda is not news. Covering up or editing out something that doesn’t fit your narrative, is not true news. Missed the memo, CNN? Duh!
Plus, I was part of the journalism school at my University, and I was taught that if you were to be a credible journalist, you must stand by the oath of journalistic integrity. That means, you need to research, research, check, check and confirm all facts/sources. And always report based on facts and not on feelings or biased opinions.
What happened to journalistic integrity? Does the journalistic code of ethics matter anymore? That’s the big question.
You have to dig deep these days, and use so much discernment to get the real story. Even at that, I wonder if I’m getting any truth at all! Sad!
So, just call the B.S. out.
Anyway, I could go on about my experience. But, I’ll post this Project Veritas video link to help you make up your mind about CNN and the main stream media.
Also, watch the CIA’s infiltration into the media. It is called “Operation Mockingbird.”
I leave you with this verse:
Luke 8:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
God bless America and WWG1WGA!
