Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Shouldn't that headline be the new motto of the New York Times? After another untrue story making its way into print, at the once beloved New York Times, you'd think that they would change the direction of the paper to make sure that the stories they print are both truthful and verified?
For years now, and especially since the election of President Trump, the “Grey Lady” (maybe the paper should be called the “Red Lady”) they have been on a mission to do anything that might hurt the presidency of Donald Trump. “Trumped up stories” (no pun intended) about Trump and his administration have been fodder for quite a few apologies and excuses by the paper as to why they can't present the news truthfully and without bias.
They, along with other news outlets including the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, etc. have been over 90% negative about Trump and his administration (a figure by the Harvard University). Never in our history has there been such an organized effort to undermine a sitting president. Day after day, the attack against the president is relentless, not only about Trump, but to his associates who work for him, and to his immediate family. Nothing is sacred to these bullies in the press.
Some people say that journalism is dead and that the main stream media is now the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Hardly ever is there a positive word mentioned or any credit given for the policies put forth by President Trump. Even if the media is silent about his successes, that omission is tantamount to saying something negative. It seems the N.Y. Times and the others can't get over the fact that Donald Trump won the last election. It has been noted that 95% of the media in the 2016 election endorsed Hillary Clinton editorially, and still he won the presidency. And even during his 2 1/2 years in office, the animus toward him seems to have gotten worse. There really is a “Trump Derangement Syndrome” in play here.
The one positive thing is that the electorate seems to be saying is “enough is enough”, with the exception of the loony liberal left (a/k/a Progressives) who can't seem to let go. Trump just endured 22 months of a “fake” conspiracy put forth by the Democrats and their flunky's in the news media, and they still won't let go as they are still looking for another “bite of the apple” by continuing the charade with faux impeachment hearings. What a waste of time and money. Instead of legislating, the Democrat politicians are still investigating a non-crime, which was found by the FBI, a House committee, a Senate committee, and the Mueller Report to be a figment of the imagination of his enemies.
Yes, a free press is one of the cornerstones of our democratic republic, but the actions of the N.Y. Times, and the other media outlets, are abusing their rights by incorporating false news and peddling it as the truth. The N.Y. Times, was once called the “paper of record” for many years, but it has now become a partisan propaganda publication. That's why the motto of the paper should be changed to “All the News That's “Unfit” to Print”
