Not since the days of the Civil War when the news media tried to destroy President Abraham Lincoln have we seen such blatant lies pour forth from the mouths of the defenders of truth.
There is a reason 94% of Americans do not trust the news media according to the latest
survey. They lie, they cover up, they
magnify untruths, and they are journalistic frauds.
Yesterday Donald Trump held a news conference in the middle of the Democratic National Committee Convention. It was a move never before attempted by a candidate for president. So what?
After two days of borderline libelous attacks from the pit bulls speaking at the DNC Convention, Trump, fed up with the lack of fact checking by our news media, wanted to fight back. Every news release from the
Clinton campaign was duly published as gospel
truth by the media who seem to have no idea what the gospel is all about.
In fact, recent DNC emails posted by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks in
that members of the media were already committing the fatal act of pre-checking
stories with the Clinton
Now the same hypocrites are claiming Trump is guilty of treason for something the transcript says he never said. Excuse me, he never said?
Yet it only gets better as the feeding frenzy of the crooked media inspired an even greater frenzy in the politicians from the left who consider themselves the defenders of the Clinton Legacy the rewards loyalty with corrupt payoffs.
To wit, when WikiLeaks released the DNC emails the firestorm of unethical and possibly illegal action by the staff resulted in the forced resignation of one of the greatest liars in politics, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, head of the DNC, Obama appointee, Hillary supporter, and Sanders saboteur.
Then, when thrown off the platform of the Convention in disgrace, there was Hillary whose campaign helped engineer the departure for things Hillary said she knew nothing about. Before the ink even dried in the newspapers, Hillary hired Debbie into a senior campaign position. Did the media note this strange act, not a word.
My friends, corruption is the new standard in American politics and hypocrisy is the main tool to mislead the public. We are in serious trouble because the corruption has spread from the government, political parties, and politics to the news media, those protected by our Constitution.
The only court that can stop the manipulator of mass hysteria is the court of public opinion and you have demonstrated awareness in the polls, now it is time to demonstrate by your actions. It is time to pull the plug on the phony media, disconnect from the phony cable stations, cancel the newspaper subscriptions polluting our intellectual elite, and stop the nonsense.
We will post a Hall of Shame of those members of the news media who are a disgrace to the concept of high journalistic standards and we hope you shun them until they are no more.
Following is the latest American Press Institute Report on the public perception of, can the news media be trusted.

Only 6% of Americans trust the media – survey

As accusations of bias fly during an election year, a new report shows that Americans have serious misgivings about the media, with only six percent saying they have “a great deal of confidence” in the press.
A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”
“Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.”
According to the study, most people couldn’t name a specific instance that damaged their confidence in the media, but about 40 percent could remember a case, generally involving a report that turned out to be inaccurate or was perceived as biased, which caused them to lose their trust.
“The most important thing that news organizations can do is be accurate, and while we know that is a high value, this study reinforces that,” Margaret Sullivan, public editor of the New York Times, told the Associated Press.
The most essential quality for media institutions is accuracy, with 85 percent of respondents saying it’s extremely or very important for them to get the facts straight. Seventy-six percent said that timeliness is critical.
While social media has changed the way many people encounter news, it’s not necessarily for the better. Although 87 percent said they receive news via Facebook, for example, only 12 percent said they trust it “a lot or a great deal.” The social network with the highest trust rating was LinkedIn, and even then the level confidence was only 23 percent.
While the report didn’t point out any specific recent instances that have led to the erosion in public trust, the AP pointed to a Rolling Stone article on a campus rape that received widespread coverage in the
There have also been accusations of biased coverage of the current presidential campaigns, especially with respect to outsider candidates such as Donald Trump and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
The American Press Institute report comes in the wake of a September 2015 Gallup poll which found that only 7 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in the media, with about 33 percent saying they had a fair amount, and 60 percent claiming they had either little or no trust in the media.
