I used to tell people replace imagine replacing media with used cars salesman. Would you still believe anything they tell you. I have stopped with this comparison as it is unfair to used cars salesman.

Every veteran and loved one of a fallen soldier should pile on CNN until they suffocate from shame.

“Americans' Trust in Media Dips to Second Lowest on Record…29% of the public currently registers ‘not very much’ trust and 34% have ‘none at all.’”

The propagandists in the media are not fooling the majority of Americans.

This is BEYOND chutzpah. Brilliant Vichy observation—although you forgot to mention it was the Vichy collaborators who proposed the parade for themselves 🤣

Huh? Did they mean to thank James O'Keefe for NOT publishing Ashely Biden's diary? Are they saying that the FBI shouldn't raid reporters homes for NOT publishing something? What exactly are they talking about? From my view, most of MSM has failed to do anything to protect freedoms in the last 18 plus months.

Well they have been at war with the truth for quite a long time now, so it's hardly surprising they should want some recognition for it.

My father was a newspaper editor. I have been a journalist of some sort (mostly in trade publications and religious publications) all my professional life. I am shocked at what journalism has become. My father drummed into me that newspapers were to question everyone and everything, and report ANYONE who cheats, betrays a public trust, lies, commits fraud, etc. If you were a reporter and your best friend told you he had embezzled or murdered or was wanted by the police, your story had better be filed within the hour. The newspaper looked out for the "common man" -- it wasn't supposed to side with the powerful. Today, "journalists" ARE the powerful.

Again, the CNN post is a figment of a NARCISSIST'S delusional mind.

They are sick/deranged people.

Sort of misleading. This is an excerpt from an opinion article in 2018 by Joseph Holt, and it wasn’t written on Veterans Day.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not defending Pravda, I just don’t want people to go around repeating this as if it was written today.

Two thoughts - first, that's not necessarily CNN's opinion. It could be the opinion of a third-party contributor. Second...are we sure that's legit, and not some spoof from, like, Titania McGrath?

Specially when they are ignoring things like this:

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/28/applying-brakes-on-warp-speed-covid-19-vaccination/

It argues for stopping the mass vaccination of kids. It is authored by world-renowned scientists Dr. Larry Kwak, Dr. Steven T. Rosen and Dr. Idit Shachar. I haven't seen it gain any traction.

"Finally, none of the mRNA vaccines has a built-in “off” switch to control where they travel in the body and how long they persist there.

Published animal safety studies showed traces of COVID-19 spike protein in the brain, heart, and other vital organs, and the European Medicines Agency’s assessment report acknowledged that low levels of mRNA itself were detected in most tissues. The potential consequences of vaccines crossing the natural blood-brain barrier in children’s developing brains are of the utmost concern to all future humanity. "

You have to understand that the MSM networks have no native viewership, so their entire business model depends on saying the most insane / stupid / inflammatory thing with the expectation that it will go viral across all platforms. The goal is simple: rage clicks.

Snopes calls this outdated, because it appeared in August 2018, but it appears to have aged rather well.

Think about those times that you read an article about something that you actually know about, and you cringe because of all the mistakes, inaccuracies or oversimplification in the article. But we are conditioned to believe the accuracy of on subjects that were don’t know intimately. Ponder that. COVID? Climate change? Iran, Iraq or Afghanistan?
