Did you vote for this?

Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin bemoans fake news (April 21). This time, liberal Vanity Fair hails upcoming Chelsea Clinton, whereas before in the Democrat media it was the arrival of ultra-liberal Barack Obama, and then the supposed anointing of Democrat/socialist Hillary Clinton.

 

But with democracy and the voters getting in the way, the media, mostly the Associated Press, are now determined to destroy democracy and its leader, Republican President Donald Trump, along with the underlings who elected him, in an avalanche of media attacks.

AP’s latest weapon is, when challenged, to demand in print that its accuser give proof of such.

On Oct. 17, Republican vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence repeated Trump’s complaint about “obvious bias in the national media.” AP then said that Trump’s words were “without evidence.”

There are all kinds of evidence, as seen by keeping track of AP’s stories in the past five presidential campaigns, which show in each campaign there are 500 all-positive stories for liberal AP’s fellow Democrat candidate, and 500 all-negative stories about AP’s political enemy, the Republican candidate.

While AP is bad enough, we see on April 21, on the opening page of the liberal web browser Internet Explorer, owned by Microsoft’s MSN.com, a story headlined “The U.S. has now gone seriously mad,” which quotes a North Korean newspaper about Trump’s move of warships.

Who was this Internet Explorer MSN.com story written by? Al-Jazeera, which conservative Accuracy in Media says is an “anti-American” media outlet that “works hand-in-glove with the Muslim Brotherhood and its associated terrorist groups.”

In his column April 23, Charles Krauthammer explained why the U.S. is moving warships there: “North Korea is headed for a nuclear breakout” and “is racing to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that can … destroy an American city.”

Far from “going mad.”

Maybe we should go ahead and take a vote now on socialism. Newspapers have thrown up the white flag to AP. Readers have thrown up the white flag to newspapers. Internet Explorer users have thrown up the white flag to Microsoft News.

You’ve already voted.
