The Hunter Biden laptop story, published just prior to the 2020 election, was immediately denounced by mainstream media, removed from social media, and labeled as false by so-called fact checkers.  Nearly a year later, the story turns out to be true.  Joining us today to talk about it is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media.  He describes the typical media two-step: deny deny deny and then when the story is no longer politically relevant, fess up to the truth.  According to the powers that be, a story isn't true until they want it to be.  So if the media gets things wrong so often and is not trustworthy, why is Congress now ready to bail them out?  It's one for the 'believe-it-or-not' files!

On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve tackle two interesting topics. First up, the White House Press Secretary announced last week that the Biden administration is working with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. There is also collusion with text message carriers and their so-called fact checkers to "monitor closely" texts between private citizens. The second topic involves the Arizona election audit and the media frenzy surrounding it. They also look at the unlikely scenario, should the audits be successful in showing that President Trump actually won the states in question, of his return to office in the very near future. If it's so unlikely, why are the media so upset?

Whirlwind tour around the world today as we bring back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to talk with us about a variety of topics. He covers the Wuhan lab leak theory and how the media has handled it as well as the resurrection of the Iran Deal by the Biden administration. He takes a look at China's geopolitical plans and how Russia is getting away with the hacking of key industries in the U.S. He then compares America to the Roman Empire in its latter years as well as the Soviet Union economically right before it fell. We need to focus on things that matter – like modernizing our military – instead of useless controversies that distract us from forces trying to destroy us.

There are very few if any media outlets and fact-checking websites that aren't beholden to a narrative.  It makes reporting all the facts surrounding an issue impossible.  On today's podcast, John and Steve look at how both right and left media outlets spin the news to prop up a point of view that only gives you part of the story.  So-called "bad" ideas are dismissed as propaganda so that the media's agenda can be furthered.  But no one is getting the whole story.  The media are now social activists instead of journalists.  And when that happens, the truth is always brushed aside.
