Last year, Forbes concluded that “only 16% of adults in the U.S. say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in newspapers, and just 11% said the same for television news.” Anyone confronting these stats must conclude that our media are deeply incompetent or crooked or both.
The New York Times announced a few years ago that defeating Trump was the important thing. They gave themselves a free pass to lie all they want. How can they now reclaim their honor or their usefulness?
Real journalists, when they hear an assertion, immediately try to determine whether the assertion is true or false. This is also what scientists do. It’s honest, valuable work.
Unfortunately, our liberal journalists do not care about true or false. When they hear an assertion, they try to determine whether it will help their agenda…their narrative.
If it won’t help, they know they must attack the assertion, typically by declaring it debunked, fake news, or misinformation.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in The Gulag Archipelago, said, “And the lie has, in fact, led us so far away from a normal society that you cannot even orient yourself…”
[This is title of Episode 86 on my podcast. It has outperformed all other episodes by a factor of 10 or much more. My thesis is that the public is not getting enough respect from its leaders. I think deep in his heart Biden is a fairly contemptuous person. He takes money from foreign countries and then he looks in the camera and says he and his son have never never ever ever ever discussed business. I was particularly struck by what Tara Reade claims he said after he had abused her. “I don’t care about you at all. You are nothing to me.”]
Ladies and gentlemen…
Most people agree that Chris Stapleton’s Star-Spangled Banner is best ever or close.
Most performers treat the Star-Spangled Banner as a big rousing number in a Broadway musical. They show off their skills. Everyone is impressed. But perhaps not touched.
Stapleton, his guitar, and his Tennessee-whiskey voice were alone in the Super Bowl arena. Millions cried.
Stapleton seemed humble, not concerned with flaunting his talents. Instead he paid tribute to the anthem itself, the history it represents, and the people who died to keep us going. That’s respect.
Few Americans know the story behind the song (apparently our schools don’t like history). During the War of 1812, a British fleet sailed up the Chesapeake Bay to bombard Fort McHenry, as a step toward burning Baltimore, as they had already torched Washington DC. First, they had to destroy the fort.
When Governor Gavin Newsom disappeared for a few weeks after receiving a COVID shot, the public worried: was he alive? His wife did not like this curiosity. You might think citizens have a right to know where their leaders are. Nope. She viewed the nosy public as haters.
Mrs. Newsom posted: “When someone cancels something, maybe they’re just in the office working; maybe in their free time they’re at home with their family, at their kids’ sports matches, or dining out with their wife. Please stop hating and get a life.”
Hating? Who was hating?

Too much lying, right from the beginning. Reminds me of Dr. Mann and his hockey stick.
Fauci et al drastically inflated the number of cases. Fauci et al put every death in the covid column that could possibly be put there. People stopped dying from heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and falling off a roof.
Every stupid mistake that could be made was made. Putting sick people in nursing homes. Putting ventilators in people when it would kill them. Most egregiously, prohibiting American citizens from trying remedies that have proved effective in many, many thousands of cases.
Furthermore, all the media, our little sicko media, coordinated a fear campaign so people were afraid to leave the house.
The big news today is that the scam seems to be falling apart, as this article reports.
The Government and CDC Are Lying About COVID-19 Vaccine and Ivermectin; The Question Is Why?
Wayne Allyn Root
PS: the giveaway for me, admittedly one of many, was that Fauci and his gang were so inappropriately ruthless when anything threatened their game. Remember the weird attacks on hydroxy. The media reported that Trump told people to inject bleach into their veins. That sort of nonsense went on for months as they tried to make people stay home and wait for a vaccine. The attack was picked up again when many doctors reported success with ivermectin. Dr. Zelenko explained the options in March of 2020. Everything he said made sense to me. Virtually nothing that Fauci said made sense. Fauci was like the election, the Biden candidacy, the vote count, the insurrection, the rush from Afghanistan, our lying media, and duplicitous Democrats generally. It’s shocking the number of people on this site who describe Fauci (and Biden) as decent and well-meaning.
Some on this forum casually claim a perfect election. They have to know this is not the case. For example, our own Scott Taylor went to bed the winner and woke up the loser. This cannot happen in the real world. As the Romans used to say, the thing speaks for itself.
Wayne Allyn Root is a practical intellectual, a very reliable witness, unlike the left-wing media. Here’s his take.
Democrats are combative 24/7. In contrast, many Republicans seem weak, inept, or disloyal. Why? Perhaps some are secret Socialists. Perhaps others are bribed or blackmailed. We hear a lot of rumors about pedophilia…
It’s not enough to say “Republicans are wimps.” We want to understand their motives. Does anyone have evidence for any particular theory?
Coda: In a famous 1955 bestseller, Flesch explained our reading crisis. The public schools went right on using a counterproductive method generally known as Whole Word. I don’t think this could have happened unless a lot of Republicans were compromised. Studying education has made me sensitive to the Left’s ingenuity at using propaganda and sophistry. Basically, it’s like watching a swarm of piranhas take down a cow.
