The Liberal Media Refuses to Reform
There has never been a worse point in American history for what passes today as the mainstream media. Hardly a week goes by without me learning about some news personality that has been taken to the woodshed over some stupid statement or action.
Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended from ABC’s The View for two weeks for saying the Holocaust was not about race. CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker was forced to resign from his position because of the revelation of an inappropriate relationship with a staffer. Zucker’s stunning announcement came less than two months after he fired prime time anchor Chris Cuomo for improperly advising his brother, then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, about how to address sexual misconduct allegations.
I think it’s remarkable that Whoopi Goldberg’s original career field was being a comedian. Because I constantly keep track of all forms of media, I’ve known of her for over 30 years. I don’t ever recall her saying something that was funny. Goldberg has always been this vile, nasty person with nothing positive to say. When The View was created, she showed up and probably said, ‘Hi, I’m the token black woman, so you have to give me a job.’
I can’t believe that Goldberg still has a job with ABC. Arguing that the Holocaust was not about race has for decades been one of the quickest ways to get yourself fired. A Harvard professor once argued that it is literally impossible for blacks to be racist to a white person and “Racism against white people doesn’t exist.” This rule must also apply to Jews. Goldberg went on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and tried to argue that her skin color should allow her to be ignorant of the Holocaust.
Jeff Zucker should have been fired at least 10 years ago. When he arrived at CNN, the network was high in the ratings for news. It now trails obscure cable channels like the Food Network. Despite Zucker’s mismanagement of CNN, he has been given one promotion after another. I remember in the mid 90’s Saturday Night Live had a slight dip in its rating, and management came in and fired people like Adam Sandler and Chris Farley. At one point, Larry King had 7 million viewers. Right now, I don’t think any CNN show has more than a million viewers.
Brian Stelter and Don Lemon are two of the dumbest people who have ever worked in news. Lemon must have been hired when his job application said, not only am I black, but I’m also a homosexual. Anderson Cooper was possibly hired because he was gay and his mother was Gloria Vanderbilt. I didn’t see anything special about Chris Cuomo, but hey, his dad was once governor of New York state. When you hand out jobs in news and politics based solely on a dynasty, it’s no wonder that both the Cuomo brothers crashed and burned.
I can’t think of any leftist media personality that I could say I disagree with their politics but admire their intelligence or tenacity. My general observation of news people is that they are either crazy or stupid. Sometimes they are so extreme in these categories that I find them entertaining. Keith Olbermann has turned into such a lunatic, I sometimes listen to his YouTube videos for a laugh.
The last leftist I had any respect for was probably Christopher Hitchens. He was a radical atheist, but he would go after anyone or any group that he saw as being in error. He was a huge critic of Hillary Clinton, and he did the best job I’ve ever heard someone do with pointing out the silliness of the Muslim faith.
I wonder where we will end up with the news turning into garbage. Many people on the right think that CNN will finally see the error of its ways and reform. They point to declining ratings as motivation. I don’t see that happening. The major networks have zero concern about ratings. Zucker had years of plunging ratings, and he would get one huge bonus after another.
The fixation is on power. Controlling the minds of people is the main focus. CNN has been replaced by a hundred other news formats, so the liberal media can use them to guide public opinion.
It was recently discovered that podcaster Joe Rogan has 11 million viewers, which is three times greater than most cable news shows. The left has switched from complaining about Fox News to griping about Rogan’s views on COVID-19.
I think Satan likes to have a low IQ Liberal Media. The press has traditionally been the main source that keeps the public informed of world events. If you have dumb reporters, you will have a clueless audience.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children” (Hosea 4:6).
An exciting new book is scheduled for release shortly. I can brag just a bit about it because my cowriter has done such a phenomenal job infusing the work with insightful presentation.
Pete Garcia, whom many in the Rapture Ready family know as a gifted writer with Holy Spirit-directed analyses of the times, is my coauthor. We are convinced that the monumental event we believers long for, because of the issues and events that are in our faces daily, must be drawing very near indeed.
The Disappearing: Future Events That Will Rock the World brings to light things to come in a way I’m very pleased about. Again, this is in large part because of Pete’s generously offered talents and efforts. It is a volume that the Lord has commissioned us to present now, because the Rapture should be foremost on our minds and hearts in these closing days of this Church Age.
Each hour brings troubling headlines from the many news sources now available. Every report seems more intrusive upon our daily lives than the previous, and all accounts appear to be setting the end-time stage for the soon fulfillment of God’s prophetic Word.
The world is turned upside down by issues and events that are contrary to life as we’ve known it. All rational thought has turned to wickedness—toward the dark side. Our times seem like the “days of Noah,” just as Jesus Christ described how things will be at the moment He is next revealed. That moment—the Rapture—will be when the greatest event since Christ’s resurrection occurred!
The book presents the wind-up of human history, chronicling what set in motion and is driving this Heaven-directed, end-times drama. It’s the conclusion of the greatest story ever told. What we’re witnessing today is about to bring down the curtain of prophecy’s final act.
And when you see all these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your head, for your redemption is drawing near. (Luke 21:28)
The dynamic ebb and flow of the times, with the production of our book being slightly delayed due to the pandemic, have combined to bring the work to the publishing surface at a propitious moment. The horizon is on fire with powerful indicators of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline.
This book is somewhat of a hybrid. By this, I mean it is nonfiction, but includes a sprinkling of fictional accounts that highlight and, we believe, significantly enhance the presentation.
Our foreword is written by our great friend Jan Markell, the nationally renowned radio host and president of Olive Tree Ministries. She writes in part:
All I know for sure is that believers must have hope, and with the world crumbling all around us, we are left with only the predicted “blessed hope.” This world has nothing to offer the Bible-believing Christian. Our focus must be eternity, and that is likely soon for many reading this book—not because readers will face an untimely demise, but rather because Christ’s return is at the door.
The book is set for release in March or April. I will give more of an update on its release as the time draws closer.
Pete and I are scheduled to visit the SkyWatch TV studios in early February to tape programs on The Disappearing. We will, of course, provide you with links to those programs as soon as available.
Meantime, I understand that the book is already listed on Amazon and at SkyWatch TV and Defender Publishing, so you are invited to check it out. It is not yet available to order, but should be as soon as our publisher, Defender Publishing, has completed the publishing process.
It is our most heartfelt wish that our effort will edify the believer while together we carry out Christ’s Great Commission to a lost and dying world. There is no more noble or God-ordained mission to be undertaken.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:20–21)
