LOS ANGELES: The media is overwhelmingly liberal to the point of outright advocacy. Unimportant stories are amplified ad nauseam while vital stories are ignored. Far too many media personalities are now more interested in being the news rather than just reporting it.
The liberal covers stories not to report, but to form the news. They find the most derogatory, and often fake, story to hurt the President and repeat it And repeat it. Then repeat it again. They cover what fits their narrow ideology. Ratings plummet, and they learn nothing.
With that, here are the Top 10 least important news stories of 2018.
10.) John Ossoff —
The liberal media loves to fawn over Democrat candidates. Especially if those candidates are vapid, shallow, pre-packaged smileys mouthing utterly substanceless platitudes. What did this Georgia congressional candidate stand for?
Nobody has any idea.
Every Democrat deemed young and handsome is the next John F. Kennedy, himself a fairly vapid guy. In reality, Ossoff was a Millennial who did not even live in his own district. Democrats did not care. They gave him $40 million. When he lost, it was declared a moral victory.
Ossoff would rank higher, but Democrats have moved on to bigger and shallower losing candidates.
9.) The British Royal Family —
At least one of them got married. Another one had a baby. Another one had a wardrobe malfunction. The Queen waved “hello” to her subjects. American Megan Markle learned to show obsequiousness to the Queen in her curtsey.
For some reason, the American media is fascinated with symbolic leaders of a nation we fled from 242 years ago.
The Royals would rate higher on this list, but to be fair, they are harmless. None of them seem to be criminals. Every moment spent covering them is a moment not spent covering the Kardashians or other American pseudo-royalty.
Hollywood did not even make this list because Hollywood celebrities and their awards shows deserve a lifetime irrelevance award.
8.) The stock market —
It rises over 1,000 points in one day for the first time ever. The next day it drops over 600 points intraday only to finish up over 250 points. Before that it was the worst Christmas Eve ever with a 650 point drop in shortened trading. The media goes crazy. Americans should shrug. The swings are wilder because the market is higher.
What matters is not points, but percentages.
In 1987, the stock market’s 500 point drop was a 22% drop in one day. The 1,000 point rise on December 26 was only a 5% rise. When the Dow Jones Industrial Average rises to 40,000 one day, 1,000 point swings will become normal. The liberal media consists mainly of Millennial journalism majors with zero clue of how financial markets work.
7.) Right-wing violence —
It’s a myth. It does not exist. There is zero right-wing violence in America. The liberal media is so desperate for right-wing violence that they have to invent it. Charlottesville was their evidence, except that it was left-wing violence that provoked a conflict that led to a fatality. The evidence is simple. Are there any right-wing rallies that turn violent without leftist counter-protesters showing up?
Conversely, leftist rallies frequently turn violent with zero right-wingers anywhere in sight. The KKK has not been influential since the 1960s. The narrative exists because the liberal media believes that strict constructionists and constitutionalists are radicals. Meanwhile, those seeking to tear down the Constitution and American culture are normal?.
Conservatives are not going around shooting, stabbing or running over liberals with their car. Conservatives do not firebomb Democrat Party headquarters. The reverse happens on a regular basis, because far too many liberals believe that anything that triggers them emotionally justifies violence. It does not, but do not expect the liberal media to explain this. For the billionth time, liberalism is all about the ends justifying the means.
6.) Beto O’Rourke —
Good hair? Check. Handsome enough? Check. Totally vapid guy with zero experience who says absolutely nothing? Check. Beto O’Rourke is worse than most shallow Democrats. He is an outright fraud.
His real name is Robert. He is Irish. By changing his name to Beto, he convinced enough Hollywood celebrities that he was Hispanic. They donated $80 million to his Texas Senate campaign.
He lost, which convinced these same celebrities to promote him to a top-tier presidential contender. Beto is the champion of shallow people everywhere. Barry Soetoro was a boring, college stoner. He changed his name to Barack Obama, and liberals declared him fascinating.
This is why Liawatha Fauxcahontas Liz Warren keeps insisting that she is an American Indian. Again, Robert O’Rourke is not Hispanic. He’s a Hispanderer. Identity politics is boring, and at some point liberals may wish to put substance over a pretty metrosexual face and a fake ethnic identity.
5.) Spike in hate crimes —
Like many news stories, this one is a complete and total lie. If the liberal media wants to stop being accused of fake news, they need to stop faking the news. There is no spike in hate crimes in America. The real truth is that the numbers were suppressed while Obama was President. He was too black to fail, so every single negative statistic had to be changed to a positive to protect him.
This media coddling continues at the expense of the truth.
The media keeps reporting a wave of anti-Semitic attacks. When Jewish Community Centers were vandalized, the culprit turned out to be a mentally deranged Israeli Jew who was lovesick over being rejected by a potential girlfriend. There was no media culpa. They needed Trump to be guilty of fomenting anti-Semitism, so they just declared it so.
While the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting was an act of evil, it was also a statistical aberration. An isolated incident is not an epidemic or a trend. It is the precise opposite of that.
The liberal media is so desperate to declare the spike in hate crimes as fact that they advance a twin lie of a spike in gun deaths. The liberal media deliberately ignores that discounting suicides destroys the narrative. The only spike in hate crimes in America is the nightly hatred of conservatives and Republicans that has been normalized on liberal television shows.
4.) Threats to press freedom —
The liberal media has descended into full-blown narcissism. Every night without a hint of irony, they claim that President Trump is a threat to press freedom. He refers to the media as “the enemy of the people” (they are actually only the enemy of half the people).
Supporters at his rallies chant “CNN sucks” (they do). He accuses reporters of fabricating stories (another reporter last week was caught fabricating stories). The liberal media declares these actions a threat to democracy. They are as pathetic as they are wrong.
President Trump’s actions are called insults. He is calling multi-millionaire prima-donnas names. They say far worse about him than he says about them. Has he shot any of them to death? Has he ordered his government to kill any of them? Heck, has he even imprisoned any of them?
Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder tried to jail reporters. They spied on reporters. The sin of the reporters was criticizing Obama. Yet Obama remains a media darling. The very people claiming that Trump chills their free speech are free to attack him all day and night every day and night without consequences.
One particularly boorish reporter had his White House press pass revoked. The media acted as if they were all declared illegal. The true threat to freedom is the media destroying its reputation and losing the public trust. Name the last Republican president or presidential nominee not labeled a racist.
It will take awhile. The media kept crying wolf, and are now angry that a majority of the American people distrust them.
3.) Jamal Khashoggi —
If ever a non-story deserved to remain that way, this was it. The media version of this story is that Trump’s attacks on the media created a global climate that has caused violence against reporters. In their fictional narrative, Kashoggi was a journalist who was a murder victim due to the very intolerance and contempt that Trump shows toward journalists.
The reality check is far different.
Khashoggi was not a journalist. He was an Islamist. He was an America-hating, Jew-hating, Islamist-supporting wretch of a man. Saudi King Mohammad Bin Salman have a hand in Khashoggi’s death? Sure. Why is this an American news story? An Arab Muslim leader killed another Arab Muslim in another Arab Muslim country.
Only a media liberal could take Arab Muslim on Arab Muslim violence on Arab Muslim soil and connect it to a United States President.
Arab Muslims have been murdering each other for nearly 1,400 years. The only reason the liberal media care about this story is because their false declaration of Khashoggi as a journalist lets them attack Trump.
Their hatred of Trump and all things Republican has the liberal media ready to destabilize the entire Middle East. The biggest global threat is Iran. Saudi Arabia is an enemy of Iran. America has done business with murderous Arab Muslim regimes for decades.
The Saudis are vile. Iran is worse. Yet the media makes excuses for Iran, even praising the miserable Iran deal.
The same liberal media slobs willing to get us all killed to protect one liberal Democrat president will risk getting us all killed trying to bring down a Republican president.
2.) Russia —
For two years the liberal media has insisted that Russia meddled in the 2016 United States election. The one thing no liberal in America can answer is what they should be asking. What did Russia actually do? They meddled, but nobody seems to know how.
Russian spying on America is a non-story. Everybody spies on everybody. America is spying on Russia right now. We are spying on England, France, Israel and everybody else.
Anyone who has ever read “Mad Magazine” knows the capers of Spy vs. Spy. Of course Russians are spying on us. It is our job to prevent it. It is difficult to prevent it if we cannot explain to a judge or jury what we are trying to prevent.
The Russia non-issue became a scandal for only one reason: to prevent a legally elected Republican president from being able to govern. George W. Bush lost three years of his presidency due to a non-scandal involving Valerie Plame.
Obama gets people killed all over the globe, and the media covers for him. Obama brags about not being indicted, but he had a corrupt Attorney General willing to subvert the rule of law to protect him.
Unequal justice exists.
Democrats commit crimes, and the media ignores the evidence. Republicans are accused of crimes, and the media runs with the story without evidence. The liberal media is so desperate to promote unequal justice at the expense of their own shredded reputation.
Meanwhile, the Russians laugh knowing that the American media undermines their own nation in ways the Russians could only dream about.
Normally the Russia hoax would be the least important story of the year. However, there is one issue so utterly unimportant that it deserves a lifetime award for irrelevance disguised as news.
1.) Climate Change —
Nobody cares. Climate change is a hobby for rich white liberals. “We must act now” or all seven billion people including Jimmy Kimmel’s son could die. In the real world, climate change is a leftist power grab. Create a crisis, and then propose a solution. Naturally, the solution involves more government power.
Massive regulations imposed by government are the goal. Climate change is junk science from the same radical environmentalists who have gotten virtually everything wrong for decades. The greatest threat to human life from climate change is people being bored to death by climate change lectures.
Millions of dollars are spent trying to get Americans to care about this non-issue. Celebrities who obsess over this issue do not even care.
- They purchase carbon credits so they can live narcissistic lives while everyday Americans are regulated.
- Celebrities fly on private jets lecturing the rest of us about using air conditioning.
- They scream that the issue is settled science because settling science requires blind rage.
It is long past time for conservatives to stop arguing about climate change. Do not argue whether it is real. Look at greeniac zealots and tell them the real inconvenient truth. They’re boring.
Say it with me again. Nobody cares.
These are the top 10 least important issues of 2018.
