Americans turn against the biased Hate America Media (HAM) with open hostility

Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats).

And no wonder.

Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists identified themselves as Republicans? In fact, the percentage of Republican journalists continues to decline — from 25.7% in 1971, to 18.8% in 1982, to 16.4% in 1992, to 7.1% by 2013. No doubt the percentage is even less than 7.1% in 2018.

With the lawful election of Donald Trump to the presidency, the MSM have gone insane with vitriol and hate, showing that they really are the Hate America Media (HAM).

Here’s an example: a cartoon by New York Times editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappette, portraying U.S. soldiers’ mission as that of fighting Israel’s wars in the Middle East, and the soldiers refusing to defend America’s southern border against the impending invasion of thousands of “caravan migrants”.

No longer covert and sneaky, the Hate America Media have abandoned all pretenses at journalistic objectivity. An example of the HAM’s declaration of open warfare against Trump and his millions of “deplorable” supporters is the editorial board of the New York Times urging Democrats to go to war against a sitting President of the United States by deploying violent and unscrupulous “Godfather” mafia tactics.

Now, the American people are fighting back against the Hate America Media with open hostility, threats, and even physical attacks.

David Bauder reports for the Associated Press, October 29, 2018, that journalist associations are dispensing advice on safety and self-defense tips because of increasing anti-press incidents. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) advise reporters to avoid one-person news crews; the National Press Photographers Association is developing workshops on safety. Chris Post, a photographer for WFMZ-TV in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said: “The environment has changed. I’ve witnessed the transition.”

The RTDNA has begun compiling anti-press incidents that it self-righteously calls the “press freedom tracker”. Last year, the first time a count was kept, there were 48 incidents; the count so far this year is 39, including:

  • The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were killed.
  • In October, an intruder was shot after kicking down glass doors at Fox’s local station in Washington, DC.
  • In Dallas, Texas, a man purposely crashed a pick-up truck into the side of a TV station.
  • In Miami, a reporter and a photographer were physically attacked while doing a live shot.
  • In North Carolina, a news crew had its power cable cut while covering a demonstration.
  • CNN correspondent Jim Acostawho is barred from the White House for being rude, combative, and assaulting a White House intern by putting his hand on her arm to stop her from doing her job — has been the target of chants and epithets when covering Trump rallies, including one recently where a man looked at him and made a motion like he was slitting a throat.
  • When WFMZ-TV photographer Chris Post arrived to cover an immigration rally, a man in a car asked him where he was going. Told it was a pro-immigration rally, the man became agitated and stepped on his accelerator, stopping just short of hitting Post. On the same day, a man shouted “fake news” at Post while driving by in a pick-up truck. Post said, “I’m 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. I’ve had somebody try to grab my camera. When it gets to that point, where does it stop? It’s a tough time to be a journalist.” But Post also had an experience while driving through a fast-food pickup line that gave him hope. He was handed a cup of coffee and told the woman in line ahead of him had bought it, wanting to pass along the message “thank you for what you do.”
  • Caitlin Penna, a freelance photographer from Durham, N.C., said she constantly has her guard up on assignments. Even her conservative family is suspicious of her. “I’m pretty sure my grandmother thinks I’m this far-left liberal because of the things I cover,” she said. One night she was unwinding at a local bar and struck up a conversation with a man nearby. When she discussed what she did, the man said, “you report fake news” and walked away.
  • Nic Coury, a freelance photographer who works in California’s affluent Monterey County, said: “Since the election, people are emboldened more.” Coury has been called part of the liberal scum media, an enemy of the state and told he and his colleagues lie all the time. When conservative Arizona politician and law enforcement officer Joe Arpaio made a local appearance, “it was like walking into the dragon’s lair.”

Some journalists are quitting because of the hostility. The hostility she’s felt from the public recently was one of the reasons why Los Angeles KNBC-TV news photographer Lori Bentley-Law decided to quit the business after 24 years.

In her blog post explaining why she was leaving, like other journalists such as Acosta who are devoid of introspection, Bentley-Law blames public hostility entirely on President Trump, as if his supporters are brain-dead zombies who can’t and don’t think on their own. She whined that when a president describes the press as enemies of the people, “attitudes shift and the field crews get the brunt of the abuse. And it’s not just from one side. We get it all the way around, pretty much on a daily basis.”

She says that although there are other factors that contributed to her desire to leave, including shoulder woes from carrying heavy equipment for many years and a constant diet of murders and other depressing story assignments, the current environment is definitely part of it. One recent day, a person in a Mercedes prevented her KNBC news van from getting off a highway until several exits beyond her destination. On another occasion, a man stuck his bare butt out the window and defecated. Bentley-Law wrote:

“I don’t want to be immersed in sadness every day. I don’t ever want a cute little girl in pigtails to look up at me and say, ‘We hate you.’ I don’t want to hear ‘fake news’ shouted at me anymore, or to be flipped off while driving my news van.”

Bentley-Law was flooded with texts and emails from frustrated journalists across the country who’d read her blog. Declining to be interviewed, Bentley-Law said via email: “I suppose my experience isn’t unique and certainly resonated.”

I interpreted the cartoon as mocking President Trump to defend our borders as if there was no threat. That was the assertion Acosta was trying to make when he rudely interrogated the President last Wednesday. I hate the mainstream media, not because of President Trump, but because they fail to report the news. They have failed to report the news a very long time. One particular topic they fail to report accurately and truthfully is in regard to vaccines. The fact is vaccines are dangerous and antithetical to health. Yet the msm demonizes anti-vaxxers. The fact is they are too… Read more »

I don’t trust the MSM AT ALL. I’m even starting to realize that FNC is going down the SAME SAD RABBIT HOLE! If it isn’t Tucker or Sean or Laura or Janine…it’s LEFTIST. I can’t even watch Schlep Smith…and he’s NEWS guy! I shouldn’t even KNOW what his political beliefs are! But I do…because he can’t shut up about them. I HATE when a reported tells me how I should interpret what he’s “reporting” on. I can go to CNN for Schlep-style editorializing.

FNC will lose viewers if they don’t straighten out.

If a communist public education system trains a young girl to rabidly support communism and makes her a complete fool concerning the history of America, religion, constitution and morals, then all it has to do is give her a camera and a microphone and tell her that she is liberated to say whatever she chooses. Since she has has no rational thoughts of her own and she is at odds with the principles that America was founded on, she will simply repeat the latest communist party line that the party trained her in tells her to say.

The MSM is simply the propaganda arm of the New World Odor. Why would we expect anything different? They used to attempt to seem less strident, not anymore. The obvious solution would be for people to stop watching them entirely. They are of no value whatsoever. People who watch TV “news” are morons. IF they don’t start out morons they end up that way. I can’t even stand to listen to it for more than five minutes. It’s revolting. Today they’re whining that Acosta’s “rights” were violated. Really? He has no right to insult the President and refuse the President’s… Read more »

I agree. Five minutes is too much when you know you’re being hypnotically manipulated and played for a fool, even by camera angles and by unnoticed, attention-forcing strobe effects. Try turning the sound off in a darkened room and watch the lights on a wall away from the tv, flashing like something North Korean brainwashing sessions might have—blackness followed by explosions of light forcing the inner mind to concentrate like life itself was at stake. Fox is still at it, of course, with its classless boobs and thigh journalism, as well as the pompadoured flag-waving shtick and jingoism suggesting nothing… Read more »

I think this is a very good synopsis of where we are and why.

https://batr.org/solitary/111318.html

We are clearly being manipulated. The first step in living a legitimate life is realizing that. Perhaps the second is in realizing what is important and what is merely incidental.

As you say; “A person can learn more reading for five minutes than watching an hour of that crap”. One won’t find truth where lies are told. The same applies to going to those who cause problems for solutions.

The basis and general, all a round trustworthiness of the MSM is a non starter, but even more, notice how the news always plays the politics of whatever they are reporting on, but never really explore the issue itself. The MSM is the corporate establishment reporting on establishment interests. Now globalism and the NWO wants to remove nations, nationalism and the relevance of citizenship in favor of multi national corporate interests. Whoops, there goes our rights, citizenship privileges and all social contract. Hello third world peasant status for what was once a middle class democratic society.

It has been shown, again and again, that they all read from the same provided script. I like those segments where they “click through the channels” and all the talking heads are saying exactly the same thing. How does one account for that?

Personally…I “peek in” on news these days for about 2 minutes, mostly to see if I’m going to be burnt down or if my freeway is closed, and then I “google” my local weather online b/c I can’t stand another minute on TV….and for viewing “pleasure,” I mostly watch crime shows. At LEAST they SOLVE things that need solving—unlike the “real life” around me locally and nationally. Very satisfying.

Do they teach about weather warfare in weather mannequin school? https://www.newworldwar.org/weatherwar.htm In his 1931 book The Scientific Outlook, Lord Bertrand Arthur Russell, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950, discussed manipulating the weather. “It may be that God made the world,” Russell proclaimed, “that is no reason why we should not make it over.” Charles Galton Darwin, a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, who was also the grandson of Charles… Read more »

The weather is about as exciting as golf, or watching paint dry. I don’t blame them for spicing things up a little. Of course, if I want to know what the forecast is I just go to the internet. That way I don’t have to risk an encounter for what passes for “news”.

Gaining control over the weather is characteristic of the globalists’ track record of ruining just about anything they touch. Accurate weather prediction by experts is a standing joke for good reason, such as their being unable to predict hurricane paths until the last minute. High school kids having such engineering wonders as weather scientists do at their fingertips could probably do just about as well. Weather predictions based on weather science itself, laughably bad as they are, do remain possible in the future. We don’t, however, need to understand the partial differential equations supposedly governing the fluid behavior of air… Read more »

In the case of Tesla, I can believe that utilizing nature as a source of energy is entirely possible. After all, that is what we do when we “produce” electricity. We induce electrons to flow in a medium. Altering weather is much the same. It seems that anything one does effects something else. That is more a “belief” of mine that proven fact. God created the Universe. God is still very much in control of it. I do not believe that anything happens without God’s consent. Just as with “rights”, people have a “right” to do anything. Of course there… Read more »

You lost me with all those references, but I smell a psy op as well coming from some of the fringe gurus. Michael Hoffman talks about an induced double-mindedness as indicative of successful mind control, as when otherwise intelligent, conservative people, in more than an expression of confirmation bias, overlook, say, Jeff Rense’s crazed appearance and outer space contacts. An old trick for discrediting damning evidence and proof of conspiracy is associating it with nut cases or crazy stuff.

“Michael Hoffman talks about an induced double-mindedness as indicative of successful mind control…” — Dan. Texe Marrs also covered the occult’s “double-mindedness” doctrine back in his July 2010 Power of Prophecy Newsletter & article. His brief summary said: “This doctrine (of the double-mind) also embodies the same philosophy as: –the Jews’ cabalism, –Darwin’s theory of evolution, –Hegel’s conflict of opposites, –Easton’s systems theory, –and Marx’s dialectical materialism. –It is the basis for the Orient’s Taoism philosophy, –the Hindu’s ‘Maya’ (Illusion), –and the Persian Zoroaster’s Zend-Avesta teachings…” His full article: “The Theory and Practice of Hell and Illuminism—Implanting the ‘Double Mind'”:… Read more »

I think we need to try to understand what the MSM “is” rather than what we wish it were. It is NOT a place to go for information. Their primary function is to contain the range of individual thought in the populace. They are who states the few “choices” available to us. Anything else is “fringe” and therefore not a valid “choice”. They also couch the acceptable argument. If you point to obvious flaws in this narrative they are the ones to quickly label you a “conspiracy theorist” or “antisemite”, etc.. So, they are the voice of the Cabal. I… Read more »

You’re right about not dismissing evidence and sound argument on ad hominem grounds, and I was wrong to single out Jeff Rense for that very reason. It takes judgment in each case as you point out. Speaking of patterns, almost all knowledge is based on their recognition, or used to be until 911.
