The Mainstream Media Fraud

Here are a few excerpts from an article by Steve McCann at American Thinker about the ongoing fraud that is the dominant media (emphasis added):

The conjoined Democratic Party and mainstream media’s despicable character assassination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh combined with the two-year single-minded determination to destroy the Trump presidency by any means possible has irretrievably awakened a preponderance of the citizenry. In a recent poll, 70% of all Americans and 90% of Republicans have lost faith in the self-styled mainstream media. They are imploding due to the self-inflicted destruction of their credibility and integrity, which has exposed the fraud this cabal has carried out over the past 85 years. The damage done to this nation and its citizenry is incalculable.

There have many frauds perpetrated on the American people. Perhaps the most notable, and consequential, was the media persuading an overwhelming majority of citizens that journalism is not only a noble profession, but one that always strived to be fair and balanced. Journalism, in this or any nation, has never been fair and balanced. Nor has it been afforded the exalted status of a profession, as the definition of a profession is an occupation that involves prolonged training and formal qualifications. Journalism encompasses neither.

. . .

On a national basis, the American people, unable to receive any alternative broadcast media until the mid-1990s, were gulled into believing that journalism and the media did indeed strive to be fair and balanced. This was an ideal scenario to dramatically assist the left in the indoctrination of the citizenry into slowly but surely accepting liberal orthodoxy – a tactic that has, for the most part, succeeded.

. . .

The current state of anxiety and bitterness throughout the nation can be laid primarily at the feet of the media as they took advantage of their monopoly of the electronic platform available to them to promote and give cover to the left while proactively and falsely declaring their objectivity and integrity – thus perpetrating the greatest fraud in American history.
