Mainstream Media Manipulating Mind?

|

Mainstream media, social platforms could be manipulating users by pushing far-left liberal ideology—widespread in 2020

Liberal media dominates the mainstream, while conservative news is a low 12 percent. NY Times, Washington Post, Guardian, and AP indicate left-liberal bias, survey shows. CNN earned the moniker “Fake News,” and Twitter is uncomfortably left-liberal, says its employees.

Google was accused of manipulating the algorithm to favor leftist bias. Recently, an internal email exposed a Google employee, apparently labeling conservative views.

Equally troubling is the apparent muzzling of conservative voices and branding it dangerous, using biased fact-checkers.

1. Fake News

Donald Trump claims he invented the phrase “Fake News.” It first became famous when he used it on CNN. Conservatives often referred to mainstream media (MSM) until MSM outlets began using it to deflect growing criticism.

Fake news began at the turn of the 19th century. ‘Yellow Journalism’ reported sensational and less factual information, possibly triggering the Spanish-American conflict.

During the election campaign, NPR reported Facebook, and Twitter, limited sharing of a ‘New York Post’ story that could damage Joe Biden’s image. Although NPR exposed it, they defended both media giants by including why the move was justifiable.

2. Conservatives labeled ‘bad guys’

At the height of Black Lives Matter pillaging cities, MSM said, “It’s a mostly peaceful rally.” But when Trump’s supporters (primarily Republican conservatives) entered the capitol, it was an insurrection.

As BLM cried for defunding police, Atlanta Journal published a Black cartoon. The boy hiding under the table said, “This feels like preparing for a cop to show up.” Ergo, cops are bad guys.

Conservatives are “Neo-Nazis”

Conservative commentators Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, and PragerU labeled ‘Nazis,’ according to Project Veritas.

Mainstream social media platform: “Nazis of Twitter”

In 2022, the world’s second-richest man Elon Musk bought Twitter. For years, the platform has been suspending and regulating conservative accounts and tweets that they label “false information.”

Conservative voices like actor James Woods lost tens of thousands of followers since the apparent crackdown of conservative voices during Trump era. His up 62,000 followers days after Musk bought Twitter.

Weeks after, Elon blasted NBC for basically claiming Republicans (Conservatives) are “Neo-Nazis.” He quipped, “Same [NBC] org that covered up Hunter Biden laptop story, had Harvey Weinstein story early & killed it & built Matt Lauer his rape office. Lovely people.”

3. Cancelling conservative voices

In 2021, Amazon Prime stopped streaming ‘Clarence Thomas Documentary’ during Black History Month, the irony. Thomas is the only Black U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He is a pro-life conservative who voiced his concern about electoral fraud.

Big Brother Tech tried to silence conservative voices who claimed voter fraud for months. These media giants deactivated thousands of social media accounts.

Abortion

Mainstream media poise abortion as health care while conservative calls plain murder. Abortion media coverage is “deeply and problematically politicized,” says a study.

3. Social Media’s left-liberal bias

YouTube channels with hidden agenda

To get millions of subscribers, some produce content that doesn’t work. In other words, “they lie professionally.” Ann Reardon exposes some of these dubious production company that creates “fake content.”

We did our homework and watched a few videos about American history. In the middle of the video, the narrator suggested Republicans are “white supremacists.” What he did not say was that Republicans opposed slavery.

Facebook fact-checkers learn left-liberal

Facebook social media allegedly flagged “real news” as “fake news.” Fact-checkers need fact-checking for their bias, conservatives Candice Owens puts it.

In 2020, PragerU and other Christian pages claimed algorithms were likely tweaked—so their posts won’t often appear in people’s feeds.

In 2021, a satire website known for “attacking the left” posted a blog mocking toxic masculinity. Their page with 1 million followers received only 1 like. One comment said the post didn’t even show until Babylonbee reposted it as an image.

Social platforms accused of manipulating politics

In 2018, WhatsApp was accused of causing a misinformation crisis in Brazil and India to produce a political outcome. Rumors on the platform ignited a political division that led to mob violence and deaths.

Alternative social media for conservatives.

5. Fear and division for identity politics

In March 2021, Emmy Award-Winning News Anchor Kari Lake quit. “In the past few years, I haven’t felt proud to be a member of the media. I’m sure there are other journalists out there who feel the same way.

I found myself reading news copy that I didn’t believe was fully truthful – or only told part of the story,” she said in this video. Kari felt she contributed to the country’s fear and division through her profession.

Climate change

MSM pushes fear by saying climate change leaves us hopeless when it is a natural phenomenon or police officers are dangerous, even if they are not.

Black racism

On June 17, 2021, Juneteenth (July 19) became a federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery in 1866. It’s added to the long list of “Black privileges” other minority groups do not have.

However, CNN, criticized for “race-bating,” headlines, “A federal holiday dawns as rights of Black Americans under assault.”

NBC Reporter covered up for Biden in 2021

Chants break out during at NASCAR. NBC reporter appears to cover up for President Biden when fans chant, “F*ck Joe Biden!.”

What appears to be damage control, the NBC reporter said the crowd was chanting “Let’s Go, Brandon.” Trump has labeled NBC as “fake news,” criticizing the media giant.

Barkada Bar changing its name after woke backlash.

“Sinclair’s soldiers” on MSM are trying to brainwash the people into a political and demonic liberal agenda to eliminate conservative politics.
