AP Publishes Story Noting That 100,000 Migrant Children are In Detention, Pinning This on Trump;
Then They "Retract" The Story When They Learn This Figure is from 2015, and Therefore Not "News" Because It's Not Helpful to Democrats
Brave firefighters who need to be spat on in public.
The story's still true -- they're just retracting it because it fails to advance the political interests they're in the business of advancing.
Wouldn't want any context about Obama's
detention policies cluttering up the narrative, huh, AP?
Deleting the story completely. Not just correcting it, rewriting it to reveal that Obama detained 100,000 precious migrant children in Concentration Camps in 2015.
No -- deleting it entirely from the record. Obliterating it. Erasing it.
Putting it in a pile and burning it.
setting fire to all the inconvenient books and articles.
Brave firefighters, purging the past with Cleansing Flames to win the future.
A week ago James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released a hot mic rant by ABC's Amy Robach lamenting her network's deep-sixing of the Jeffery Epstein saga three years prior. In watching this video clip and tracking the media response to it I was reminded of a scene in Ray Bradbury's classic 1951 sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 451.
For the record, 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper burns. In Bradbury's novel, the state employs "firemen" to burn books lest the information they contain challenge the official state narrative. "Is it true that long ago firemen put fires out instead of going to start them?" a young woman asks fireman Guy Montag. Montag tells her that's a crazy idea. "Strange," she answers. "I heard once that a long time ago houses used to burn by accident and they needed firemen to stop the flames." Montag laughs.
Not too long ago, ambitious journalists, local and national, prided themselves on gathering information, and their editors prided themselves on publishing it. About 50 or so years ago, however, progressives started to seize control of universities, J-schools included, and newsrooms shifted leftwards with each new graduating class. By 2016, even major newsrooms had become firehouses. Their goal was not to report information but to manage it. In February 2017, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski unwittingly admitted as much. Said Brzezinski of President Trump, "He could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that is our job." Yes, sadly, that is their job.
The media is Orwell's nightmare. They exist not to inform the public, but to keep it ignorant.
And Bearclaw puffed up his resume.
And he kind of admitted he's the one feeding the fake hearsay whistleblower his lines:
And he was believed to be an untrustworthy, partisan leaker:
