The number one influence on people is media, and I blame media as a whole for the myopic mindset that the American people have, as a whole, rabidly adopted.
If media would consistently report evenhandedly, as professional journalism requires, we would be living in a completely different political and social climate.
But it’s all about click bait and who says something before anyone else. It’s driven the populace a little crazy. To think any one guy will turn that around is a bit naive. It will take us, the people, to demand the media report responsibly.
For example, after the embarrassment of the last election reporting Hillary ahead by miles and slam dunk winning long before one vote was cast showed glaring bias and outright lying, we should have demanded resignations and not just rolled over.
Now we at another election cycle. Same cast and crew.
Accurate reporting is nowhere to be found. It’s just….What have they been told to say now? Zero cred on both sides. So the people would be better off flying blind then being mislead.
But we can’t get away from media overreach.
Until journalism returns to valuing personal and professional integrity, maybe fines for lying may be in order.
Hey, that might balance the budget in a day or two!!
In a poll of students it has been found that 54% of conservative students will self-censor their beliefs. This is in order not to offend their liberal peers. This contrasts with only 15% of democrat students who say they would self-censor.
“Beyond disciplinary proceedings, students also credibly fear their peers, who are increasingly intolerant of differing viewpoints,” said Nicole Neily, the president of the First Amendment advocacy group Speech First.
“Rather than leverage the tools of discussion, debate, and persuasion, students now seem inclined to strong-arm their peers into compliance through canceling and doxxing — allegations that last forever on the internet, and have the very real possibility of ruining someone’s future professional opportunities.”
In an interview with Breitbart news the President handed the media outlet a six-page document listing the accomplishments of his administration.
The document begins with:
“The Great American Comeback is already underway.” It cites how the Trump administration added 1.8 million jobs in July, “exceeding expectations for the third straight month.” It also notes that Trump oversaw the addition of nine million jobs since May, “surpassing market expectations by a total of 12 million new jobs.”
“Over the last three months, we added over four million leisure and hospitality jobs; 1.47 million retail jobs; 1.17 million education and healthcare jobs; 743,000 service jobs; 623,000 manufacturing jobs; and 639,000 construction jobs,” the document continues.
President Trump has helped broker a deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. The peace deal will see relations between the countries normalized. The President urged Israel to suspend the annexing of the West Bank region, which was a pint of contention between the countries.
Trump tweeted, “HUGE breakthrough,” describing it as a “historic peace agreement between our two GREAT friends.”
The three countries issued a joint statement saying that they,”agreed to the full normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.”
“This historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential in the region,” the statement said.
Kamala Harris scored as the most liberal senator in 2019. She came ahead of Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
According to GovTrack.us, an organization tracking US Congress and ranking senators on their voting record, which is “one of the oldest government transparency websites in the world,” said Harris, D-Calif., was “ranked most liberal compared to All Senators” in 2019.
The ranking is in stark opposition to the Democrats portrayal of Harris as a “pragmatic moderate.”
President Trump has announced he plans to ban TikTok in the US. The social media app is highly popular with young people. However, there are concerns that the Chinese owned app is gaining access to US teens personal data, and is a security risk.
TikTok has also seen calls for its ban in other countries over safe guarding issues. Children have been targeted by paedophiles on the app. TikTok have been criticized for not doing enough to protect children from being groomed.
