Today, here’s the media bias story to end all stories.
Not just because it’s so blatant. But because it’s so trivial:
Trump was in Japan. As part of a photo-op, he and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe were feeding food to lively fish called koi.
If you watch the whole clip, which I'll show you, you’ll see that Trump watched what his host did, then copied him, by first spooning out the food, then emptying the whole box into the pond.
But CNN edited it, and tweeted it, to make it look like only Trump had dumped the whole box upside down.
See the implication? Trump can’t control himself. He’s rude, he doesn’t follow cultural signals from foreigners, he’s undiplomatic.
One site picked up the story, with the headline:
Big stupid baby dumps a load of fish food on Japanese koi pond
Bloomberg ran with the spin. So did other outlets and pundits, including the CBC and the Toronto Star.
Look, it’s a photo op. It’s not about free trade with Asia or anything that matters.
But that's the point: Even this nothingness — it’s a lie.
The Internet quickly saw CNN's deception and mocked them.
But so what? Millions of people watch CNN around the world, around the clock. And they all saw the lie.
Even if a lot of people saw the truth, the damage was done — what percent of those who saw the original lie saw the truth? I doubt most did.
You just can’t trust the mainstream media — even about how a man fed some fish.
NEXT: Our own John Cardillo and I talk about the mass shooting in a Texas church, and what the left still doesn’t understand about firearms and gun control.
John's experience as a former police officer provides valuable insights (and accurate ones, unlike many opinions you'll hear from the Media Party...)
THEN: Lawyer John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, joins me to talk about the disturbing story of the Canadian school that hid a child’s “gender transition” from parents, in the name of NDP mandated “student privacy.”
