The news media is jeopardizing its First Amendment credibility with its irresponsible reporting and attempts to demonize anybody in disagreement with its leftist globalist agenda. The most recent news conference with President Donald Trump revealed how the delusional media views fake news. The reporter tried to blame Trump for the media’s credibility problems, asking the President:
“But aren’t you concerned, sir, that you are undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment freedom of the press, the press in this country when you call stories you don’t like ‘fake news?’ Why not just say it’s a story I don’t like?” Herein, it’s the press that is undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment.
But I know what’s good. I know what’s bad. And when they change it and make it really bad—something that should be positive. Sometimes something that should be very positive, they’ll make okay. They’ll even make it negative. So I understand it because I’m there. I know what was said. I know who is saying it. I’m there. So it’s very important to me. Look, I want to see an honest press. When I started off today by saying that it’s so important to the public to get an honest press. The press—the public doesn’t believe you people anymore.
In reality, the press is going wild quoting unnamed sources without verification and reporting illegally leaked information as if it were fact. Case in point: The shadow government and deep state want panic about the possibility that Trump will deport millions of illegals. AP reported that the White House was calling up 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegals and send them back to wherever they came from.
The White House categorically denied that the report was even remotely factual. But the report was made without verifying the source or the memo the source quoted. A free press in bondage to an ideal or agenda is not free at all. The false narrative that the president is undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment by criticizing the media-is an extraordinary example of the twisted demeanor of the news media.
Exodus 20:16 states, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
Telling the truth is the basis of good journalism. And Truth comes from where? Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” He goes on to say in verse 17, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”
These so-called journalists cannot recognize truth because it’s not in them.
The First Amendment, a unique guarantee of Liberty, is undermined when liars lie with impunity while disguising the lies as truth. We need to pray and act to hold accountability, especially within the “Church” where the truth should be rightly discerned and spoken of boldly that good is not considered evil.
