The free press is dead in America. It has been dying on the vine for a long time, but the press no longer even pretends to be objective when it comes to stories that might do harm to the Democrats. There is no longer a free press. There is only, in the words of Mark Levin, a “Democrat Party Press.”
The failure to report on the recent revelations contained in Hunter Biden’s laptop is the most egregious dereliction of duty by the press in my lifetime, even worse than their reporting during the three-year Russia collusion hoax, which is really saying something.
They claim that there is no actual story there, and that it is merely “Russian disinformation,” but that is complete and total hogwash. We know that the laptop’s contents aren’t Russia-influenced because the intelligence community has said so…but of course the media won’t report that.
Twitter and Facebook have censored the New York Post story that broke the news, claiming that the information was hacked and not obtained legally. Again, that is not true. Hunter Biden forfeited the right to his property after he failed to show up to pick up his laptop at the repair shop after 90 days. At that point, the laptop became the property of the owner of the shop, and he blew the whistle on the Bidens once he uncovered the computer’s contents.
Twitter censored the account of the White House Press Secretary, the Trump campaign, and the New York Post for simply sharing a link to the story.
National Public Radio—a network funded with our tax dollars—have said they aren’t going to cover the story at all.
Terence Samuel, managing editor for NPR News said, “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” Samuel reasoned. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was . . . a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”
This is just another example of why NPR and PBS should be defunded. They both are taxpayer-funded propaganda outlets for the Democrat Party. Of course this is political! Rudy Giuliani –who released the information to the Post—wants Trump to win, but that doesn’t mean the information itself isn’t true.
To verify the information is the job of the press. Providing information for the public is supposed to be the very reason for their existence. Maybe Joe Biden isn’t corrupt (although I have my doubts), but that is why the mainstream media should do actual reporting and get to the bottom of it.
The Founders believed that the press was essential to holding the government accountable. If done earnestly, journalism is a noble profession. But the press is now working to censor information to benefit one candidate and one party over another, and that defeats their purpose entirely.
The press is supposed to check the government, not empower it. If the Democrats win the election, that is exactly what the press will do, and we will lose even more of our already eroding liberty.
When President Trump originally called the press the “enemy of the people,” I thought that rhetoric went too far. It was reminiscent of language used by Joseph Stalin in the old Soviet Union.
However, the media might not be throwing people in gulags and executing citizens, but they are absolutely going to war with at least half the nation that do not stand for what they stand for.
These are perilous times in the country. It feels like the country is sitting atop a tinder box, and it is just one spark away from exploding. The mainstream media have helped light the fuse that will lead to the explosion. They have divided the country, and they bare much of the blame. It is up to sites like FreedomWire to bring attention to this fact and hold them accountable. That is what we intend to do. Somebody has got to do it. If not us and similar sites, then who will?
