The so-called “Mainstream News Media” has lost all credibility among most Americans and is now considered by many (if not most) to be “The Fake Stream Media.”
This didn’t happen overnight. It began long before the 2016 election campaign.
Today’s Fake Stream Media once enjoy the trust and confidence of most Americans. Gradually, however, it was infiltrated by those with a socialist bias. This includes many claiming to be “conservative.”
It’s important to understand that the words “liberal” and “conservative” are not nouns. These are adjectives. So, one has to ask; “Conservative or liberal what?” The answer is Socialist.
A minor amount of research will reveal to anyone that today’s socialism was popularized by the economic theories of Karl Marx. He theorized that the existing capitalism of his time could be evolved into socialism… and eventually into a one-world, global Communist government. Few today understand how rooted we are in these theories.
Both China and Russia began almost immediately to apply Marx’s theories… liberally.
Here in the United States, Marx’s theories were applied… relatively conservatively.
While the so-called “conservatives” here in the US are often described as capitalists… the truth is that they have merely been advocating applying socialism… conservatively.
Basically, the “liberal” politicians and economists want to drive toward socialism at 100 mph and the “conservative” politicians and economists want to drive toward socialism… at only 50 mph.
Since the days of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it has been the News Media that has controlled the narrative… and obscured the fact… that both the Democrats and Republicans have been driving us farther and farther down the road to a socialistic government and economy.
Both China and Russia have been to the end of this dead-end road and are now transitioning back toward Capitalism. ( You can read more about that HERE. )
The total media bias in favor of Hillary and against Trump in the 2016 election campaign vividly illustrates this… as well as the backlash from US citizens who have suffered from our government’s socialistic policies.
Trump didn’t win because everyone likes his hair. Hillary lost because she represented more of the same. Trump won because the people want CHANGE.
Though there are many “conservatives” in the media, they are vastly outnumbered by the “liberals.” Plainly evident, however, even the conservatives in the media were anti-Trump.
Both the liberals and the conservatives within the media want to continue driving toward socialism. The US citizens, however, voted to put the brakes on and perform a U-turn.
Karl Marx produced his theories in 1847. He provided numerous steps describing how governments can transition from capitalism to socialism. Only 3 of the steps are listed below. Judge for yourself how far the US has traveled down the Socialist road. The 4th item is a quote.
1) “Limitation of private property through progressive taxation, heavy inheritance taxes, abolition of inheritance through collateral lines (brothers, nephews, etc.) forced loans, etc.”
2) “Centralization of money and credit in the hands of the state through a national bank with state capital, and the suppression of all private banks and bankers.”
3) “Education of all children, from the moment they can leave their mother’s care, in national establishments at national cost. Education and production together.”
4) Though it does not appear in his written works, Marx is cited as having stated on numerous occasions that; “Democracy is the road to Socialism.” (Constitutionally, the United States is a Republic… not a Democracy.)
Earl Browder, a former General Secretary of the National Committee of “The Communist Party USA,” stated in 1966; “America is getting socialism on the installment plan through the programs of the welfare state. There is more socialism in the United States today than there is in the Soviet Union. Americans may not be willing to vote for a program under the name of socialism, but put it under another party label – whether Republican or Democrat – and they are by and large in favor of the idea.”
Whether conservative or liberal, most members of the so-called “Mainstream News Media” have been biased in favor of those politicians seeking to pursue socialist policies. This is plainly evident to most US citizens. That’s why they are now known as The Fake Stream Media… just a propaganda arm of the socialist elite… driving us down the dead-end road to socialism.
