News Media heal thyself

News media heal thyself

There’s nothing more galling than having the news media lecture us about divisiveness and incendiary rhetoric.

The sanctimonious lectures coming from media personalities over the last week have reached peak hypocrisy. And what’s terribly tragic is they don’t even realize what hypocrites they are.

It makes me think of that saying I heard many years ago that when you point a finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.

The same on-air “talent” from CNN who wring their hands and bemoan President Trump’s so-called divisive rhetoric are the ones inviting Tree of Life’s rabbi on the air and practically begging him to denounce President Trump.


Instead of pointing the finger of blame at “politicians,” how about you turn that microscope on yourself, Jake?

This is the CNN anchor who, just yesterday, let a “reporter” claim that President Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS.

This is the same network that has peddled the RussiaGate conspiracy theory for nearly two years. They routinely give a platform to the conspiracy theories from politicians like Ted Lieu, Adam Schiff, and Maxine Waters.

How many times has CNN allowed the imbecilic David Hogg to come on and slander the NRA and NRA members?

Jake Tapper himself stood quietly while Hogg and his fellow radical Left classmates accused Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch of being complicit in the shooting at Parkland.

They’ve welcomed on-air guests who liken President Trump to Hitler – who attack and demean voters who elected him.

Just before the Inauguration, Wolf Blitzer tackled that hard-hitting news story, “What happens if Trump and Pence are assassinated before they’re sworn in?”

Yeah. Nothing inflammatory about that, is there Jake?

Just a couple weeks ago, CNN let multiple on-air guests and hosts demonize Kanye West for having the temerity to support President Trump.

And this all didn’t begin with the election of Donald Trump. CNN has been fanning the flames of division for years. After all, who can forget CNN promoting the false narrative of “hands up, don’t shoot” during the Ferguson riots?

Perhaps the better question, Jake, is why do we as a society think it’s important for the news media to not inflame passions with demonizing rhetoric and conspiracy theories?

Maybe you in the news media should stop pointing fingers at others, and take note of the three fingers pointing back at you.

It is you who have sown the seeds of division, promoted and celebrated the unhinged violent mobs on the Left, regurgitated histrionic conspiracy theories, and now even accuse a sitting President of being responsible for the actions of an evil, hate-filled animal who hated Trump as much as CNN does.

You’ve attempted to slander, marginalize and abnormalize any American who supports President Trump, believes in border security, and defends the right to bear arms.

You’ve called us “racists,” “Nazis,” “White Supremacists,” “Anti-Semites,” and “garbage people.” President Trump has never said anything nearly as vicious as what you in the news media have said about him or us.

So who are you to lecture us about divisive rhetoric?

After nearly two years of trying to delegitimize the duly elected President of the United States, who are you to lecture him while accusing him of dividing the country?

You have no moral high ground here. None.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that you have done more to divide this nation than any politician.

So stuff your sanctimony and finger-pointing. And look in the mirror.

News media, heal thyself.
