Billary Clinton wasn’t the only casualty following the November 8th Presidential election. The other dead-on-arrival corpse was the once proud craft of journalism.
The carnage isn’t just limited to the USA. Journalism’s pretty much dead or dying, financially, morally and ethically in so many other places, including Canada.
South of the border for the past 18 months, we witnessed the slobbering love affair between an overwhelmingly leftwing media and the Democrats.
It was wince-inducing to see mainstream media outlets morphing into stooges for Hillary; turning a blind eye to Benghazi and trying not to dwell too much on her troubles with an unsecured server resulting in classified emails being hacked.
While Trump was mercilessly vilified for some crass reality TV comments, Hillary was fawned over. Considering the adoration Lady Clinton received from CNN, I’m surprised they didn’t simply rebrand themselves as the Clinton News Network.
Progressive zealots spout an odious agenda but they’re not stupid. They continue to infiltrate the four P’s of society: professors, politicians, police, and the press.
It’s all about shaping public opinion to fit their narrative. And while mainstream newspapers have always held biased viewpoints, they used to be confined to the op-ed pages but have now moved to the front page, posing as actual news.
Why can’t biased media outlets come clean and declare their bias upfront? Can’t we at least be honest about the dishonesty?
There was a silver lining though. Those media outlets that tried to cook the outcome of the American election, utterly failed.
Tuesday’s election was all about a majority of Americans rejecting elitism, including media elitism.
