media bias

If at first you don't succeed – at thwarting the Constitution – try end running it instead. Several examples on the show this week of globalists end running the law in order to continue fundamentally transforming this country. First up we welcome Stefano Gennarini (c-fam.org), Vice President for Legal Studies at the Center for Family and Human Rights. He looks at how the United Nations is considering making abortion a fundamental human right, poised to declare it an established customary right under international law. This could undo the overturn of Roe v Wade that is expected soon from the Supreme Court.

We had a successful economy in the U.S., largely due to a thriving energy industry. Somehow that was all quickly undone. Next up this week is Daniel Turner (powerthefuture.com), Founder and CEO of Power the Future. He discusses how the current administration is trying to gaslight the public with truly unbelievable mixed messages on energy. He reminds us how fossil fuels keep the world running and how renewables aren't yet ready for prime time. Ultimately, the misleading narratives and their related policies weakened a very prosperous economy.

A capitalist economy runs on competition and fair business practices – or at least it's supposed to. Big Tech companies are getting around that by unfairly undercutting the little guy. Here to chat about that is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. There's a new act in Congress that aims to curtail these unethical practices, much like antitrust acts used to do. Big Tech, though, is fighting tooth and nail to defeat it.

Finally this week, we welcome Justin Butterfield (firstliberty.org), Deputy General Counsel at First Liberty Institute. He looks at the case of an Oakland University student who was evicted from campus housing. What did she do wrong? She shared online how to apply for a religious exemption to the covid vaccine. Once again, we see an example of elitists end running the Constitution and violating, in this case, religious freedom.

The American Innovation and Choice Online Act is a proposed piece of legislation that would theoretically prevent a monopoly by big tech giants online. Back with us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. He examines the unfair business practices by big companies like Google and Amazon that undercut small businesses and drive them under. This new act in Congress should curtail that significantly – in the style of the old antitrust acts of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He also looks at the full court press by big tech lobbyists to try and kill this bill.

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.

An Al Jazeera journalist was killed recently in a crossfire between Palestinians and Israelis.  A riot broke out later at her funeral and now the media spin machine is in full force blaming Israel. Is it true or just another attempt to bash Israel? Joining us today to talk about the story is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel bureau of CAMERA. She discusses how media take advantage of casual readers’ tendency to only read headlines by burying relevant aspects deep in a story. And when they do publish details, they are often misleading or outright incorrect in the service of a narrative. The anti-Israel spin machine is still revving strong in the media.

John flies solo today, digging deep into the archives of media history to play a speech given in 1938 by American politician Lewis Schwellenbach (D-WA). Why is he playing this speech? To show the similarities and differences between what happened with Hitler overrunning Austria in 1938 and what Putin is doing in Ukraine today. There are many similarities with what politicians and the media were saying then and now. The primary difference is that today, we are far more connected globally and unable to take an isolationist stance like we could back then. It's important to learn lessons from history and apply them to today.

Now that we've passed the hubbub and noise surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and acquittal, it's time to take a few minutes and look back at some key issues. Joining us today for this retrospective is author and correspondent R. Cort Kirkwood (thenewamerican.com). He covers the facts of the case, the leftist mob influencing the prosecutors, and the media choosing to promote narratives instead of reporting facts. He even discusses similar issues surrounding the events of January 6. Truth is always important. The media isn't giving it to you, but we will here.

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!

Recently, a Canadian tax court judge, who is Jewish, was barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. Of course, he was labeled an Islamophobe, ignoring most of the facts surrounding the case. Back with us today is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She gives a synopsis of the situation and connects what is happening with the judge to a larger narrative within the Canadian government. And surrounding it all is a media and political machine where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. A blizzard of lies is being marketed as the truth.

Can we ever get a straight answer on climate change? Are there people keeping that from happening? Joining us today is Calvin Beisner (cornwallalliance.org), Founder and National Spokesman at the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. The media's reaction to the new IPCC report is, as per usual with the media, not consistent with reality. Science, along with the funding of it, has been skewed due to political correctness but Cal gives us the truth behind the ‘97% of scientists agree' mantra as well as predictive modeling – it's not what it seems. Close to everything that goes into pushing the man-made climate change agenda is built on a house of cards that alarmists are trying to keep from toppling over.
