Another Case of Bad Reporting in the Pioneer Press

This morning I was attracted by the article in my Pioneer Press entitled “Trump ads target Minnesota, Wisconsin.” This article was doing so well for me, until I came to BIDEN’S ADS RESPOND. The first line which introduces Biden’s response begins like this: “Trump’s false depiction of Biden as a champion…”

What’s wrong with this? What’s wrong is the word “false.” Everything else is okay, but that word ruins the entire article. Why? Because journalists are supposed to report the news, not give their opinions. If there is one thing that turns me off to the media is when a reporter slips in his or her opinion of who is right or wrong. Come on; I just want to read the news. I don’t want your opinion. I can judge that for myself. If you were God or an angel or one of Christ’s apostles, I would gladly welcome your opinion, but you’re not.

I’m not against journalists reporting all the news. But when they tell you who is true or false, that’s bad reporting. The media’s job is to report the news, not tell you who they think is true or false. But I should have known that an article having anything to do with Donald Trump would be slanted toward the negative—because 99.99999 percent of all journalists are Democrat liberals who hate Trump! At least those who work for the Pioneer Press.

Well, anyway, now you know my frustration with reading the newspaper.; and why I prefer to read sports articles instead of the political news section. They just report what is happening in the sports world (unless Trump is mentioned), and some of those sports articles are very interesting to me.

Donald Trump and the Media

In my last article on this subject I revealed how I became interested in politics and how I came to root for Donald Trump. I also wrote about how I got hooked on Fox News and how I see it as far superior to any other so-called news. Here I will carry on with the same thing, but maybe more on Trump.

You know I don’t think most people are even aware of all that the President has done, what a really good person he is. I see it especially where I live, in Minnesota; a very liberal, Dem state. I blame it mostly on the liberal news media. Sometimes I get the feeling that we are no better informed than communist countries—that restrict and control, and even alter the news. When I was younger, I remember hearing how people in Russia have no idea of the freedom we enjoy, because their media only gives them the news they want them to hear—to keep them in control. Well in this country we are doing the same thing. Most of the media is liberal and pro Democrat, and so they are always praising Dem candidates and criticizing Republicans, especially conservatives. They do talk about Trump, but 95% of their coverage of Him is negative, or just false. It really is fake news!

I buy a newspaper every day, mainly for the funnies and to check the sports pages. But I do read over some of the frontpage news articles. And without exception the coverage is slanted—a negative, liberal slant against Trump and the GOP. It’s really disheartening. My Pioneer Press isn’t as bad as CNN, but it’s still slanted.

I remember talking to one of my clients (I’m a house painter) a while ago. I think I was listening to a Fox News radio program, and she interjected something about how bad she thought Trump was. Oh, he did this and believes that and is so racist, etc. I could tell she was a CNN listener. She was just parroting what she had heard.  I tried telling her some of the good things President Trump has been doing, but she didn’t believe any of it. It was like foreign to her. It’s sad. So many people are so brain washed.

You know, in spite of the terrible impeachment fiasco, I think it has a good side. Since it has been televised, many are for the first-time hearing both sides—if they choose to listen. It is always good to hear both sides. I even try to force myself to hear the liberal view, to see where they are coming from.

And I know that many Dems are good people—I mean they honestly are seeking the truth. But so many are blinded by evil forces. The devil keeps them from the truth. But that is a whole different topic for another time.
