Electing a Republican president is as close to a miracle as Americans can expect. Why do I say this? President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961) was the last GOP president that the media did NOT malign, lie about, make fun of and denigrate. Since the 1960s, Big Media has fallen all over themselves to twist news coverage to help Democrat presidents & Democrat candidates, AND lie about, make fun of GOP presidents & candidates.
One way Big Media helps Democrat presidential candidates is to let them get away with lying, which we saw an extraordinary amount of during Obama’s eight years, and since President Trump announced his candidacy.
GOD’S MIRACLE: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP
GOP presidential candidates have two adversaries: the Democrat candidate and his Public Relations firm, AKA Big Media.
When Democratic presidential nominee, Senator John Forbes Kerry, was challenging Bush 43 in 2004 he continually called the Vietnam War “Nixon’s War.” The media never corrected him, hoping younger voters would accept this historic lie about yet another GOP president.
Of course, Kerry did this because President Nixon (the President who got us OUT OF Vietnam) was a Republican, and he knew Big Media would not call him on it.
Keep in mind that, in 2004, the Vietnam War was barely 30 years old. Despite the fact that a GREAT MANY American voters remembered the Vietnam War, Kerry continued to lie. And Big Media continued the lie.
GOD’S MIRACLE PREVAILED OVER BIG MEDIA WHOPPERS
Volumes could be written about the symbiotic relationship between Democrats and Big Media. Below is just a small, small, tiny, tiny, short, short list showing how Big Media and Democrats have been in bed together for decades:
1992: During the election, Big Media refused to investigate & report on Bill Clinton’s ferocious sexual appetite, and the rape allegations against him. They concentrated on portraying Bush 41 as an out-of-touch rich man because he drove a small inboard motorboat on vacation in Maine. Big Media called it a yacht!
1996: Knowing full well that President Clinton was sexually abusing a 21-year-old unpaid intern IN THE OVAL OFFICE, Big Media hid it from the public during his re-election campaign. At the same time, they went to some lengths to paint Bob Dole, the GOP challenger, as a dark, mean man. This, despite the fact that his colleagues in the Senate all reported he had a delightful, warm personality & sense of humor. The media even went so far as to dig up a black & white photo of Dole as a toddler, wherein he was apparently having a terrible-twos temper tantrum. Now, there’s proof he should not be president.
2000: The election day lasted FIVE WEEKS when V.P. Albert A. Gore, Jr. (D) and Texas Governor George W. Bush (R) competed for the presidency. Big Media had the public believing that Gore would win hands down. They did not report (the public found out later) that the Gore campaign had election attorneys stationed in five battleground states days before the election, ready to challenge any results that were close.
Dems wound up choosing Florida because Bush’s brother was governor and the popular vote was close. With Big Media’s help Dems cried 1) voter ignorance (voters really wanted to vote for Buchanan, not Bush), 2) machine error (despite the fact that the same manual devices had been used without problems in multiple states FOR DECADES) and 3) vote manipulation (because the Florida State government was mostly GOP).
Of course, this was entirely bogus, but Big Media and Dems made a five-week circus out of it, desperately trying to put Gore in the White House. BTW, eight news organizations commissioned a study over the months following the election, and all found that George W. Bush did, indeed, win Florida, and thus became president, fair & square.
2004: During the September leading up to the presidential election, the long-running CBS show “60 Minutes” used forged documents, hoping to prevent Bush 43 from being re-elected. Sharp-eyed viewers caught on quickly and a scandal ensued wherein long-time Leftist broadcaster Dan Rather was disgraced and forced to retire.
I doubt this was the only time that Ole Dan and “60 Minutes” manipulated facts or just plain made up stories to hurt GOP candidates and/or help Democrat candidates.
2008: Desperately wanting a black man in the Oval Office, despite his lack of experience and hatred for America, Big Media created a “love child” story about the GOP candidate, John McCain, without any evidence, without any woman claiming this and without any “child” coming forward. This was especially disgusting since Big Media thought Clinton’s 101 KNOWN affairs were just fine. HIS personal business, according to Dems & Big Media.
2012: Big media tried to turn Mitt Romney, the mild-mannered, kind GOP challenger, into a bully. They dug up a story about a college prank that several boys (Romney may or may not have been involved) had pulled on a classmate. No one was injured, but Big Media pushed this false narrative for weeks. At the same time, they refused to report on how the Obama Administration was intentionally keeping the economy down, flooding the USA with Muslims from terrorist countries and destroying the middle class.
2016: I won’t repeat the journalism malpractice that was committed by the majority of print and TV “journalists” since it is still fresh in Americans’ memories. The Russian Hoax was exposed, most of the traitors are being investigated and Big Media has lost what little credibility they had three years ago.
