Erosion of Truth in Media

Broadcast Running Time: 01:16:42

If narratives coming out of the media seem wildly inconsistent and are flopping around, there's a reason for that. John opens the show this week looking at the outrage and "flippage" seen in stories about both gun control following recent shootings and Nancy Pelosi being denied communion because of her stance on abortion. The media pound away at a narrative, bury facts, and distort the truth in order to shape public perception on a story. That erosion of truth infects people's minds and that's reflected at the polls. It's dangerous to the freedoms that are the foundation of our country.

Another example of the media distorting the truth to advance a narrative can be found in a story about a riot at a funeral in Israel. An Al Jazeera journalist was killed covering a story and at her funeral, violence broke out. Joining us to discuss is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. She highlights how different press agencies immediately pointed the finger at Israeli troops as the cause for the violence, purposefully overlooking Palestinian instigation – just to bash Israel.

Finally this week, we look at the declining state of public education in this country. Joining us is Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com), founder of the One-Room Schoolhouse method of teaching. She describes the benefits of parents taking charge of their child's education and the advantages of teaching in a small classroom. If children can learn how to think, not what to think, perhaps public perception will not be influenced by the erosion of truth and the future of our country can be saved.

It's time for John's monthly foray into the guest chair as he chats with Lee Lancaster at KYMS radio. John and Lee discuss the Texas school shooting and related to that, the diminishing presence of morality in the schools and the insistence on gun control laws every time a shooting occurs. They also touched on the latest globalist shindig in Davos, the failure of climate change thinking, and the endgame of our currency. John also asks for prayer for the persecuted church, especially in the countries of Nigeria, Indonesia, China, and Egypt.

After several weeks of intense reading and studying, John asked author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com) to be on the program. He joins us this week to discuss the new kind of socialism we're seeing in the West. It has technocracy, public-private partnerships, and a particularly insidious campaign to demonize nationalism and infiltrate the Christian church by undermining its roots. It's all part of their attempt to destroy America and the West.

We then move to Texas and its new state abortion ban. Abortions are down as a result and opponents are frustrated. But could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives? Next up this week is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the pros and cons of the Texas bill and the precedents it could set. This bill, which seems great for pro-lifers, could be detrimental to other conservative issues and groups in the future.

Finally this week, little is being said about Iran after the Afghanistan debacle, but a new report suggests that Iran could be weeks away from possessing nuclear weapons. Ken Timmerman (iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, rounds out the show this week. Iran's nuclear program is advancing, but their government is in disarray. Unfortunately for us, the Biden administration and our military seem just as chaotic.

John has been waiting a long time to interview today's guest, spending many weeks poring over his books. Joining us is author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com). He and John discuss how Western democracy needs to keep its Biblical roots intact in order to survive. A new kind of socialism is upon us – one that's more technocratic with a public-private partnership thrown in. It's invading every aspect of our lives, especially the Christian church. That's where our roots lie. Mr. Vidal also examines the Reformation and counter-Reformation as it pertains to North America versus South America.
