Trump Video Fights Back Against Mainstream Media Narrative

At yesterday’s White House coronavirus press briefing, President Trump played a video that caught the mainstream media by surprise and left reporters in both the briefing room and studios across the country, triggered.

The montage crafted by the administration revealed how misinformation plagued the media coverage and showed Democrat governors from sea to shining sea praising the president’s efforts in fighting the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

WATCH:

Per the Daily Wire:

The video started out by showing someone on “Good Morning America” saying, “People should be more concerned right now with the flu in this country.”

Since then, we’ve seen the co-host of “Good Morning America” test positive for COVID-19 and statistics like this.

“Coronavirus is not going to cause a major issue in the United States,” someone on CBS News said.

We think a historic shutdown of the global economy to limit transmission qualifies as precisely that.

The video also showcased how the media even acknowledged that Trump was criticized for taking early action.

It also included praise for Trump from multiple governors, including Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), Gavin Newsom (D-CA), and Phil Murphy (D-NJ).

CNN cut away from the press conference shortly after the video started playing and MSNBC followed suit several moments later.

The answer: be honest and truthful. Fact is fact and if you lack the facts or if you haven’t investigated enough to find the truth – you have to lie to make yourself look good! That is SAD!

AN-cient history, WAY back in 1972, Plagiarjoe Bidenist’s wife ran a stop sign (distracted driving) and was crushed in the intersection by the truck driven by innocent Curtis Dunn, a man who did all he could to avoid hitting her. He dumped his 18 wheeler in that effort but to no avail. The wife and daughter were killed and the two sons injured. Plagiarjoe immediately accused Curtis Dunn of being a drink-driver and responsible. How Curtis managed to force that woman to run a stop sign was never “explained”. Now, the media KNEW the facts but it never (NEVER) called out the new Senator on it and he kept repeating this calumny up to 2007 (Curtis passed in 1999). He destroyed Curtis’s life. Has Bidenist ever paid? Has MSM ever paid a price for this crime? You know the answer. BTW, Epstein didn’t kill himself and building 7 didn’t fall (in its own footprint and at free-fall speed) from office fires.

CNN and MSNBC did cut away. That is because of their policy concerning the truth. THEY DON’T TOLERATE THE TRUTH. So they would not show it.
I hope Trump continues to show that fact for the next six months/

It is astounding to me that the main Street propaganda outlets can continue to sell advertising for the products they produce…….with very few viewers and/or readers……..if the advertisers were not participating in the brain washing of Americans, then, financially it would make no sense to continue to get zero on their dollars spent…….

You are very right under straight forward circumstances of economic theory Daniel T Simpson! But what if the main stream media, owned by just 4 to 6 “families” that also own at least 80% of the radio stations in the US, was receiving funding well above what these corrupt media giants could possible receive from their “normal free market” revenue stream as you have suggested? Yes, China and Russia are playing their roles, but even together they could not possibly fund this attack from within America that has been unfolding for many decades now. Think big! Think “The Biggest”! The answer to your, and many Americans, current boggle is actually straight forward and in your (our) face. It always has been BTW. Only one “group” could possibly be responsible for the corruption of the MSM (and the American government but for possibly a few). Your thoughts and concerns for America (and The Constitution) are deeply appreciated because you sound like someone who cares. The answer to your most intelligent question as to exactly who is responsible for our problems in the media and beyond is in reality not even close to “astounding” at all, however most Americans will definitely be quite surprised that they did not see it all along…. Like many questions in this country/society the real answers are EXTREMELY simple, only the corrupt hand of man (and women) creates the world inundated in “Swamp Gas”! Ha! Enjoy a great day and a powerful sense of humor, because you will definitely need it in the years to come! M

The lamestream misleadia has done nothing but spread fear. The numbers don’t get anywhere near the main stream misleadia’s propaganda. In Italy – where everyone will agree – they were hit extremely hard by the coronavirus – their death toll as of last Monday was at over 16,000 people. Italy has a population of about 60,450,000. Doing the math that death toll equates to about 0.3% of their population. We have been told numbers as high as 5% here. But if we suffered the same fate as Italy and 0.3% of our over 300,000,000 population dies – that would be over 400,000 deaths.

I am so TIRED of this “GOTCHYA” style of coverage… instead of just reporting the facts. Keep your freaking opinions and motivations to yourself and do your DAMN JOB! And even after he threw it in their face, the first question back to Trump was “Why did you feel you needed to do this? … Seriously?… are you really that “blinded” by your bias?

I am not surprised as this type of false reporting has gone on for years. It is part of their internal DNA. It is how they are wired. It begins at the very bottom and goes to the top. This type of reporting is for the truly ignorant. They see and hear the false stories, but they continually get fooled. News organizations should be extinct by now as they have no relevance. I do not watch any news and have not for years. I am careful where I get any information. Let’s continue to call these liars out and try to convince those who are continually fooled to turn against them. Years ago I really thought Fox would be the news answer we were looking for, but they are just as bad. We do not have any honest main stream reporting anywhere. Sad but no answers in sight. Stay strong.

I in my entire life of near 70 years have never seen such hatred and endless lies by media to bring down a politician the people wanted. I never saw a political party work to destroy their own people, and country by creating an invasion of America by A phony amnesty refugee law that resulted in 90% of the hordes running across the border being here illegally drawing benefits. Then comrade Obama decided illegal entry people are now immigrants and we no longer are allowed to deport them. The icing on the cake was using driver licenses to register them to vote illegally in a federal election. Now after endless accusations of racism for loving the country and fearing the invasion the House uses deadly crises to enslave us under unwanted socialism. The mere fact that four loads of communist bull shit who hate my country, are telling us how to destroy America and we must listen? Not a single indictment in the first proven coup, not one? I served in war, I love America, the democrats terrify me the republic must be saved from them. If Trump is destroyed it proves we lost our freedom the day Obama took office.

That was complete brilliants in real time of the media’s lies while they were sitting there trying to say that Trump was downplaying the Coronavirus but he wanted to point out the media’s bias of the coronavirus as well and as you would guess it didn’t sit well with the Communist media they don’t like having their lies spoon-fed to them but it needed to be done to show the American people that the media lies to them on a daily basis! Trump said he had hundreds of these clips and I say if you have a hundreds of these clips I say you play them everyday until they get to the point that they’re not I wanted to sit there and lie about the president and not be above reproach it seems that Two Can Play That Game in Trump just ended the game yesterday because when CNN and mslsd cut away from his briefing saying that it was propaganda that let you know right there that the little kids were going to take their ball and go home just like they always do when I get called out for their lies! It seems they can dish it out but they can’t take it see meteor that’s what happens when 93% of your coverage of the president is negative or faults this comes back to blow up in your face and that consequences have actions behind them!

Many of you probably don’t remember “The Students for a Democratic Society” and “The Weather Underground” of the 60’s and 70’s. The were communist student terror groups that fomented violent revolution here in the USA. Bill Ayers & his wife Bernadine Doran were devout proclaimed communists who were the leaders of the WU. Obama admitted that he started his political career in their living room. Ayers recently retired from teaching at the University of Chicago and his wife, who was on the FBI 10 Most Wanted list for 10 or 15 years and then convicted of murder , bombings, etc. and sentenced to life with no parole and who’s sentence was commuted by Bill Clinton on his last day in office is still teaching at Northwestern University law school. How many of the SDS & WU are now teaching in our colleges and are the heads of major corporations and entertainment and news groups?

The “SDS” movement was also contacting students in all the universities entreating them to join the movement. This was in the 1960’s. I knew someone who was contacted by them; she wasn’t the only one!She didn’t join but she may as well have. She supported the insanity and did it in a large high school in Albuquerque. She retired as a HS teacher along with another teacher of her ilk. She did volunteer work for the ACLU. Both were tragically killed in a fiery car wreck. You’re right. They are out there and have been in the education system for the last 40+ years!

This type of reporting has been going on for a lot longer than you think. Go back to the early 2000’s. Do any of you remember the term“gravitas“, it was used on every national news broadcast in America as a term for a political candidate. Every news station in the country used it. The term was then and still today not one used very often. Wonder why that term was used by all major,TV, radio, paper used it, except FOX. In 2008 a reporter asked Hillary Clinton where she got her news from. Her response was “Media Matters”. This was 2008. I would guess to say outside of the mainstream media nobody knew who Media Matters was. You still might not know, it is George Sonos owned and operated media source. This is where all of the left media get their talking points, that is why they are all the same, terminology, talking points, you name as well as financing.

Her opening class she laid down a set of rules that basically disallowed us to use our values and standards. She insisted that the only successful societies were those where everyone shared equally, and worked for What was best for the community so that every one got cared for equally.

Rather amusing that both CNN and MSNBC (the champions of “Fake News” – tho’ the field is certainly crowded – and the race for the bottom might have been even tighter if anyone actually watched PBS… *), elected to terminate coverage when confronted with… their own words. This wasn’t Trump putting his “spin” on the news. Nope, this consisted of excerpts from the MSM’s (incl. CNN’s, tho’ their ratings make the use of “main stream” increasing problematical – only Joe Biden’s “Basement Broadcasts” score lower audience shares, for which the DNC must be grateful, considering how poorly Biden presents) own broadcasts. These networks remind me of my teenaged granddaughter – nothing upsets her more than quoting her own words back to her. Oh, the upset! Denials, invectives, tortured explanations and exculpatory assertions and “How dare you’s” – and she then storms off in a huff if you dare confront her with her own idiocies. At least, however, she knows when she’s caught, unlike twits like Rachel Madcow, who’s still in denial – or like Jim Acosta, who seems entirely too stupid or obtuse to grasp when he’s become a bad joke.

I think it’s wonderful that Trump gave it back to them. It’s sad, however, that the people who get their news from these pathetic excuses for journalism will never get to see it. Then again, anyone who still watches either of these farcical excuses for news probably isn’t interested in the truth.
