As the Fox news implosion plays out live on cable TV, the whole debacle helps to make a few things more clear in regards to who our allies truly are. Fox News has always been a business, pure and simple. There is nothing inherently evil or wrong about that, we need businesses. However, as a business they simply noticed a gap in the marketplace and set out to fill that gap in order to make…Read More
A media propagated fallacy. Any increase in covid cases is immediately blamed on the straw man of “other people” not taking the virus seriously.
There is a pretty obvious logical fallacy that’s appearing on an enormous scale and I’m sure you’ve encountered it several times as you browse social media or discus the current pandemic situation with friends. It goes like this. There is a segment of the population who either by propaganda or by a simple lack of logic choose to blame any increase or prolonging of the pandemic on other people not taking the threat seriously enough….Read More
In true Orwellian fashion, mainstream media outlets have totally inverted the terms “confirmed” and “debunked” to mean the complete opposite.
The term Orwellian gets thrown around a lot these days, and sometimes it’s a bit of hyperbole. But when it comes to the current state of the mainstream media, the term is completely appropriate when describing how flagrant their propaganda and disinformation has become. One perfect example is how they have now completely inverted two important terms when it comes to journalistic integrity. The terms are “verified”, as in a story has been verified by…Read More
Fake news redux: Just like every “reporting error” during the Russia Hoax only went in one direction. Every reporting error on Covid-19 also only errors in one direction. What does that tell you?
I suppose if you wanted to determine if something was a hoax or not, you would look to a previous, exposed hoax and then look for similarities. Luckily, during the midst of this “pandemic” which many are starting to realize is being totally overblown and the expense of the global economy, we don’t have to look very far back in history for a hoax to compare it to. Before the China virus took over the…Read More
Through a pointless mask debate, the media has adeptly caused Americans to blame other Americans for the coronavirus and shielded the real culprit which is the Chinese government.
If you’ve been anywhere on social media or simply watched cable news over the past few weeks, you’d be convinced that fighting the coronavirus has boiled down to one argument: Either wear a mask and save the planet or don’t wear a mask and be compared to a serial killer. Yes, despite being told by every expert that the only way to eradicate the virus was to impose the shutdown of every business in America…Read More
Major corporations were quick to show their unwavering support for BLM protests, but now that protests are resulting in children being murdered, will they withdraw their support or share in the blame?
Barely more than 24 hours after the initial George Floyd inspired Black Lives Matter protests began, corporations of all types were quick to make public displays of their approval. Companies from Amazon to Apple all made unprecedented displays of support for the BLM protesters as they filled the streets to demonstrate. But quickly the protests turned violent. Looting and vandalism became the norm for nearly two weeks in every major city. New York’s most prestigious…Read More
Notice how the phrase “a new normal” only floods the media after new government restrictions are imposed?
There’s an interesting aspect of the phrase “a new normal” and once you notice it many of the things we are seeing in today’s world suddenly make more sense. The phrase “a new normal” is one that sort of hides under the surface, it’s used from time to time to describe a change of lifestyle or other personal life-change, but whenever there are newly imposed government restrictions, the phrase is suddenly inescapable. Every news article,…Read More
Not The Onion – Corporations fight racism and promote black inclusion by removing any trace of black characters from their logos.
If there’s one thing corporations seem to have nailed down at the moment, it’s the ability to make the perfect knee-jerk reaction to social media outrage. The latest trend is for corporations to beg for acceptance from the angry woke mob by suddenly deciding that their own logos and brand images are racist simply because they happen to contain black characters or personalities. The irony here is that their actions would suggest the exact opposite…Read More
Charging police officers with second degree murder has a history of not returning a guilty verdict. Are prosecutors intentionally setting up a not-guilty scenario in Minneapolis?
On Wednesday, prosecutors announced they are escalating the charges against Officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd. Now the main charge will be second degree murder. The news was mostly reported as a positive development, however second degree murder has a history of being much harder to prove, especially when it comes to police officers. One recent example is the killing of Daniel Shaver in Mesa, Arizona. Officer Philip Brailsford shot and killed…Read More
Americans are suffering from propaganda fatigue.
Americans are exhausted. Their nerves are frayed and their tempers are short. Since the beginning of 2020 they’ve been fed nothing but a steady diet of conflicting information meant to confuse and distract. Or in other words, Americans are suffering from propaganda fatigue. Much of this comes down to the pandemic we all just experienced. From the very start we were all lied to. We were lied to about the origins of the virus, we…Read More
