One of the most versatile tools of the radical left has been their prolific use of phony news stories to undermine the Trump administration.
Under the moniker of “fake news”, left-leaning media outlets such as CNN and the New York Times have spent an inordinate amount of time attempting to convince the American people to rise up and “resist” President Trump.
Oddly enough, CNN and their cronies were the first to begin using the term “fake news” in a transparent attempt to delegitimize news sources that reported positive developments within the nation’s conservative sphere of influence. During the election of 2016, this tactic was employed ad nauseam, as the mainstream media attacked the free press repeatedly and doggedly in order to sully the reputation of then-candidate Trump.
Now, as Americans have wholeheartedly rejected the left in an election that virtually destroyed the democratic party, “news” organizations such as the New York Times have been forced to resort to ridiculous rhetoric in order to keep a foothold in the media landscape. In particular, the NYT has made a habit of wholly inventing stories that don’t exist, citing “anonymous sources”…something that journalism majors in community college can tell you is a complete and utter perversion of the medium.
The New York Times’ latest nonsensical fake news revolved around a possible 2020 presidential run by current Vice President Mike Pence. Pence, never one to mince words, was quick to respond.
“Vice President Mike Pence blasted The New York Times on Sunday over an article suggesting that he is forming a shadow political campaign to run for president in 2020.
“In a statement issued by the White House, Pence called the Times piece ‘fake news’ as well as ‘disgraceful and offensive’ and ‘laughable and absurd.’
“’Today’s article in the New York Times is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration,’ Pence said.
“In the Times article, headlined ‘Republican Shadow Campaign for 2020 Take Shape as Trump Doubts Grow,’ reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns assert that Pence is creating an ‘independent power base’ in case there is an opening for president in three years.”
This pathetic attempt to shape the narrative of our nation’s future is completely unacceptable and unethical, but reeks of desperation more than anything else.
President Trump has often referred to the beleaguered newspaper as the “failing” New York Times, and with good reason. The paper is undergoing a massive shift in profitability due to the American move toward non-print media, and their liberal bias has become blasé in the overwhelming conservative uprising that has swept the nation.
