PostSubject: Analyst identifies top media lies ‘that radicalized the violent left’   Fri Jun 16, 2017 4:43 pm

Liberal strategists, it seems, have weaponized certain news headlines to convince the American public that President Trump and Republicans in general are an evil bunch. It is a powerful and ongoing campaign — talking points tossed like incendiary devices into news coverage. Some are worse than others, however. Megan Fox, a columnist for PJ Media, has identified the top-six strategic headlines, which she says are “media lies that radicalized the violent left.”



Her meticulous analysis is lengthy, citing examples from The New York Times, CNN and other sources. In essence, however, here are the half-dozen headlines she says feeds the outrage:

“Trump is colluding with Russia!”, “Donald Trump hates the planet and so do all Republicans,” “Republicans hate gays,” “Republicans have launched a war on women’s health,” “Republicans want you to DIE,” and finally, “Nationalism is synonymous with racism.”

Much of the news media itself, of course, enables this effort, which has been around for a while, and grown in intensity. Consider that 31 years ago, veteran media researcher Robert Lichter examined voting records of what he termed the “media elite” to find that 81 percent to 94 percent of the nations journalists voted Democratic in presidential elections from 1964 to 1976. Since then, U.S. News & World Report, the Los Angeles Times, the Freedom Forum and other organizations have also tracked the liberal leanings of the press with similar findings; one report found that 90 percent of the White House press corps voted Democratic. And according to ongoing analysis of polling data by Indiana University, only 7 percent of journalists now say they are Republicans.

TRUMP TWEETS EXPLAIN ALL

“You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history — led by some very bad and conflicted people.”

“Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?”

“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice.”

— President Trump in a series of tweets, reacting to continued accusations from media critics and political rivals that his presidential campaign colluded with Russian officials.

MOVING TOWARD PLAN D, E AND F

“Democrats trot out Plan C in their never-ending Trump impeachment crusade,” notes a new Investor’s Business Daily editorial, referring to three separate lawsuits filed by legal scholars, the District of Columbia and state of Maryland plus 200 Democratic lawmakers. The lawsuits claim that President Trump violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which bars elected officials from accepting compensation from foreign powers without the permission of Congress.

“This is simply another despicable attempt by Democrats to hobble a president they don’t like and overturn an election they regret, using any means necessary to do so. If Plan A (claiming Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians) won’t fly, and if Plan B (saying he tried to obstruct justice) doesn’t end up having legs — then it’s time to move to Plan C, filing laughable emoluments lawsuits,” the editorial says.

“It makes one wonder how far down the alphabet we’ll have to go before we get to a Democratic plan that involves engaging in a civil debate with Trump over public policies to meet the urgent needs of the country. Do they even have such a plan?”
