President Trump said that the Media is the enemy of the American people.
I agree with him.
I’m not letting the “people” completely off the hook. They choose to watch and believe liberal “Fake News” TV stations. They have been told that Fox News is against “the people” and that Fox is in the pocket of the Republican Party and President Trump.
“The People” are DUPED.
In an article I wrote months ago, I told the story about visiting my uber Liberal sister, and having to endure the “noise” emanating from the TV. It was CNN from morning coffee to getting ready for bed. My brain was being assaulted non-stop.
I put on my headphones, but unfortunately they are not noise cancelling. I could still hear the voices of Anderson Cooper and others which truly made me want to scream!
I finally had “the talk” with my sister. I asked her if she ever searched the internet for truth. She told me that CNN is ALL truth and that she didn’t need any other source of information. I sat there staring at her, not even knowing what to say.
Liberals are brainwashed and it’s satanic.
If any news stations are in the pocket of someone – let’s cut to the chase, shall we? George Soros views the world as a type of Monopoly Board. He buys up everything which will affect the masses (useful idiots); and because of his financial involvement, these Liberal news sources stay the Leftist/Socialist coarse, never daring to deviate from it. I only wish that his “Monopoly Board” had a Go Directly to Jail card. We can only hope……..
This article is a bit dated, but because the influence of George Soros simply goes on and on – the article is relevant today.
“Over 30 Major News Organizations Linked to George Soros”
When liberal investor George Soros gave $1.8 million to National Public Radio, it became part of the firestorm of controversy that jeopardized NPR’s federal funding. But that gift only hints at the widespread influence the controversial billionaire has on the mainstream media. Soros, who spent $27 million trying to defeat President Bush in 2004, has ties to more than 30 mainstream news outlets – including The New York Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC and ABC.
Prominent journalists like ABC’s Christiane Amanpour and former Washington Post editor and now Vice President Len Downie serve on boards of operations that take Soros cash. This despite the Society of Professional Journalist’s ethical code stating: “avoid all conflicts real or perceived.”
The investigative reporting start-up ProPublica is a prime example. ProPublica, which recently won its second Pulitzer Prize, initially was given millions of dollars from the Sandler Foundation to “strengthen the progressive infrastructure” – “progressive” is the code for very liberal. In 2010, it also received a two-year contribution of $125,000 each year from the Open Society Foundations. In case you wonder where that money comes from, the OSF website is www.soros.org. It is a network of more than 30 international foundations, mostly funded by Soros, who has contributed more than $8 billion to those efforts.
The ProPublica stories are thoroughly researched by top-notch staffers who used to work at some of the biggest news outlets in the nation. But the topics are almost laughably left-wing. The site’s proud list of “Our Investigations” includes attacks on oil companies, gas companies, the healthcare industry, for-profit schools and more. More than 100 stories on the latest lefty cause: opposition to drilling for natural gas by hydraulic fracking. Another 100 on the evils of the foreclosure industry.
Throw in a couple of investigations making the military look bad and another about prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, and you have almost the perfect journalism fantasy – a huge budget, lots of major media partners and a liberal agenda unconstrained by advertising.
One more thing: a 14-person Journalism Advisory Board, stacked with CNN’s David Gergen and representatives from top newspapers, a former publisher of The Wall Street Journal and the editor-in-chief of Simon & Schuster. Several are working journalists, including:
- Jill Abramson, a managing editor of The New York Times;
- Martin D. Baron, the editor of The Boston Globe;
- David Boardman, the executive editor of the Seattle Times;
- Kerry Smith, the senior vice president for editorial quality of ABC News;
- Cynthia A. Tucker, the editor of the editorial page of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
- Alberto Ibargüen, the former publisher of The Miami Herald, is on the board of directors. He’s also president and CEO of journalism’s prestigious John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
ProPublica is new and prominent, but it’s far from the only Soros-funded organization that is stacked with members of the supposedly neutral press. The Center for Public Integrity is another great example. Its board of directors is filled with working journalists like Amanpour from ABC, right alongside blatant liberal media types like Arianna Huffington, of the Huffington Post and now AOL.
Like ProPublica, the CPI board is a veritable Who’s Who of journalism and top media organizations, including:
- Christiane Amanpour – Anchor of ABC’s Sunday morning political affairs program, ‘This Week with Christiane Amanpour.’ A reliable lefty, she has called tax cuts ‘giveaways,’ the Tea Party ‘extreme,’ and Obama ‘very Reaganesque.’
- Arianna Huffington – Co-founder of the popular left-wing website named after her, The Huffington Post, a nationally syndicated columnist, and thanks to a recent $315 million sale, the person in charge of AOL’s news divisions.
- Paula Madison – Executive vice president and chief diversity officer for NBC Universal, who leads NBC Universal’s corporate diversity initiatives, spanning all broadcast television, cable, digital, and film properties.
- Matt Thompson – Editorial product manager at National Public Radio and an adjunct faculty member at the prominent Poynter Institute.
Once again, like ProPublica, the center’s investigations are mostly liberal – attacks on the coal industry, payday loans and conservatives like Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. The Center for Public Integrity is also more open about its politics, including a detailed investigation into conservative funders David and Charles Koch and their “web of influence.” According to the center’s own 990 tax forms, the Open Society Institute gave it $651,650 in 2009 alone.
The well-known Center for Investigative Reporting follows the same template – important journalists on the board and a liberal editorial agenda. Both the board of directors and the advisory board contain journalists from major news outlets. The board features:
- Phil Bronstein (President), San Francisco Chronicle;
- David Boardman, The Seattle Times;
- Len Downie, former Executive Editor of the Washington Post, now VP;
- George Osterkamp, CBS News producer.
The Advisory Board features prominent liberal journalists like Bill Moyers, Seymour Hersh of The New Yorker, former ’60 Minutes’ host Mike Wallace, and representatives of both PBS and NPR.
Readers of the site are greeted with numerous stories on climate change, illegal immigration and the evils of big companies. It counts among its media partners The Washington Post, Salon, CNN and ABC News. CIR received close to $1 million from Open Society from 2003 to 2008.
Why does it all matter? Journalists, we are constantly told, are neutral in their reporting. In almost the same breath, many bemoan the influence of money in politics. It is a maxim of both the left and many in the media that conservatives are bought and paid for by business interests. Yet where are the concerns about where their money comes from?
Fred Brown, who recently revised the book “Journalism Ethics: A Casebook of Professional Conduct for News Media,” argues that journalists need to be “transparent” about their connections and “be up front about your relationship” with those who fund you.
Unfortunately, that rarely happens. While the nonprofits list who sits on their boards, the news outlets they work for make little or no effort to connect those dots. Amanpour’s biography page, for instance, talks about her lengthy career, her time at CNN and her many awards. It makes no mention of her affiliation with the Center for Public Integrity.
If journalists were more up front, they would have to admit numerous uncomfortable connections with groups that push a liberal agenda, many of them funded by the stridently liberal George Soros. So don’t expect that transparency anytime soon.” – source
So, brethren – President Trump was spot on with his statement about the Media. As I’ve said in prior articles, Trump is not perfect – none of us are (only Jesus Christ), but Trump is courageous and says what needs to be said in this world where good is evil and evil good!
Trump is definitely God’s man for the job at this time in history. God is using President Trump to effect change in a world which despises Israel.
He is using Trump to speak against the horror of abortion, and to place judges who are like-minded.
He is using Trump to guarantee that we in America still have religious freedom.
None of us know how the elections will go in the midterms and the 2020 election for the White House.
But isn’t it wonderful that we know that God is in full control? If you begin to fret or worry, remember that our God is Sovereign and NOTHING happens that He does not allow!
After receiving so many emails from people who are “Churchless,” I have decided to include a sound Biblical sermon at the end of each of my articles. Keep it for Sunday!
A Sermon for Your Next Lord’s Day
