Most of us remember the world renowned and respected news correspondent, Walter Cronkite. Walter anchored the CBS Evening News for 19 years. He was often referred to as “the most trusted man in America”. Can you think of even one journalist, outside of Fox News, over the past ten years which you might call a trusted source of information? Neither can I, because there isn’t one.
Cronkite had a catchphrase which he was well known for at the end of each broadcast, “And that’s the way it is”. Today’s news hacks catchphrase would be, “And that’s the way I spun it”. There’s no more reporting facts, it’s all biased opinion-based rhetoric that gets spun to the general public. The ones who don’t have enough common sense to realize they’re being lied to. The ones who can’t think for themselves, and believe something because they’ve had it shoved down their throat over and over on their television, and therefore it must be true. Some of these newscasters, such as the ones on CNN, are told what to say to their viewers. They’re making big bucks, and in turn for the mighty dollar, they report what the station owners want them to report, and spin it as told.
A classic socialist ploy is to tell the same message, over and over, because if eventually heard enough, the followers will become believers. In essence, these news hacks sell their souls for money. Pathetically, some of them even begin to believe their own stories as truth.
Such as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who is an America hating news reporter, who “Felt this thrill going up my leg”, as Obama spoke on March 28th, 2008. Can you even imagine the great Walter Cronkite making such a statement?
To Cronkite, reputation was paramount. Relaying the facts was the absolute most important thing to a man like Cronkite. The fools we see on the main stream media today, have no interest in relaying the facts. They have an agenda, and that agenda is to ignore the will of the people and try to hurt a sitting president who beat their candidate fair and square. I ran President Trump’s ground campaign from New Hampshire to California. The Main Stream Media reported for months that Trump didn’t have a strong ground campaign, I remember it fondly. They had no idea whether or not we did or didn’t, but they reported we didn’t because it fit their narrative. The fact was, we kicked Hillary Clinton’s behind, and it was proven by the fact the stronger team won.
For the past two and a half years, all we’ve heard was Russia collusion. Here’s a news flash, collusion is not even a crime. Although, because of the main stream media, half of the country thinks it is. Either way, we now know it never happened anyway. As a Trump staff member, I also drove in at least thirty motorcades, with all of candidate Trump’s upper level staff. Many details of the campaign were discussed in these motorcades, and not once did I ever hear the word Russia. Another aspect of today’s reporters, I call them this because they couldn’t hold a candle to a real news journalist like Cronkite, was that Walter was always aware the news he was reporting was bigger than himself. He was “the guy”, the one who got to report the most important news which effected America, but was always humble.
Today’s hacks most often see themselves as larger than life, bigger than the story they’re lying about. Most of what we hear today, is in fact, fake news. It’s truly sad and pathetic that journalism has come to what it is.
Since the advent of television, Americans have become used to getting their information of what’s happening around the globe through this resource. Sadly, today it’s used as a tool to control the American population. It all began to change around the time the silver-tongued devil came along in 2008. What Obama brought along was the wind of change, the beginning of the destruction of America, disguised as the Savior. There’s only one Savior, and it wasn’t Obama. Just as there’s only one Satan, and that he was.
The new-age journalists all jumped on board, as though he were Willy Wonka, and all wanted to win the magic chocolate wrapper and be in his good graces. The majority of the American public has very little trust in today’s media. We’ve been lied to over and over. Walter Cronkite and most of his counter-parts were held to higher standards of reporting, knowing that earning the public trust was how they’d be measured. Today’s media hacks have no standards, and there’s very little trust. The bar drops lower and lower as time goes on. Shameful and pathetic is how I sum it up.
