LIES OF OMISSION: The Media Continues to Mislead Americans

Here is Kenn Daily writing at Clash Daily:

Oft times the biggest lies told by the mainstream media are words never spoken.

I call them “lies of omission.”

It’s not that the media blatantly lies. Rather, they simply decline to tell the truth.

Examples? There are plenty.

• Did you hear from the media that millennials — young people born between 1980 and 2000 — are more conservative than gray-haired baby boomers?

The younger generation in Britain, for example, is turning away from the welfare state founded by their grandparents. 40 percent of Britons born before 1945 think government should spend more on welfare benefits, even if the spending results in higher taxes. Only 20 percent of millennials agree. What’s more about one third of Britons aged 18 to 24 support that nation’s Conservative Party.

Nearly one third of millennials in France support Marine Le Pen’s right-wing Front National.

In Germany the numbers are similar. In March, 2016 26 percent of voters aged 18-24 backed the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in the regional Saxony-Anhalt election. Fewer, 16 percent, supported Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and fewer still — 11 percent — supported the left-wing Greens and Social Democratic Party (SPD).

In Poland about 100,000 patriots rallied in 2015 to oppose Islamic immigration into their country. Most of the participants were young adults.

And what about young Americans?

Lifezette.com, our source for the above statistics, reports, “A September 2016 paper published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, revealed that American millennials are more likely than either Generation X or the baby boomers to identify as conservative.”

The media are amazingly silent, leaving us to believe that millennials are progressive snowflakes longing for safe spaces after they block Interstate highways in protest of Donald Trump’s November 8 victory.

• That’s not to suggest that snowflakes have totally disappeared from college campuses.

Thecollegefix.com reports that students at Cal State San Marcos conducted a “Whiteness Forum” at which a dozen displays featured the oppressive effects of white privilege.
