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.

Ezra Levant, head of Canadian conservative news outlet Rebel News, has reported that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists in Canada to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Back with us to report on this is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). It's not yet illegal to report on stories without a license in Canada, but you don't receive subsidies and/or preferential treatment unless you have one. And with the government issuing these licenses, it's pretty clear which journalists will end up receiving them. Producer Steve finishes things out today playing some clips from Ezra Levant himself describing his experience.

With the Left entrenched in nearly every arena in society, it takes a lot to stand up to them. Someone who has experience in that fight joins us today: Rachel Alexander (intellectualconservative.com), Founder and Editor of the Intellectual Conservative. She recounts how Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is taking on both Arizona State University and the Arizona Bar Association (who retaliated against him for going after the school). The media and the politicos are showing their hypocrisy yet again in highlighting his defeats and ignoring his successes. Battling the hornet's nest takes a toll, but there are some brave souls out there willing to do it. Will there be more?

It's now clear that the Hunter Biden laptop story was not Russian disinformation, despite politicos and the media claiming that it was. But the hypocrisy is only a symptom of a much larger problem. Joining us today is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job of keeping the nation safe. Will there be consequences for them? So far, the answer is no.

Covid seems to have vanished from the media, but is it really gone? Are the issues we worried about just 2 months ago still there? Back with us today is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Adverse reactions to the vaccines are still affecting people, many of them children. Statistics are still being manipulated to fit narratives. Off-label drugs are proven to work but prescriptions for them are still forbidden because 'we must all take the vaccine.' The science we're all supposed to believe in and the virus and the vaccines and their problems are all still there. Politicos and the media are ignoring them because the midterms are near, but the issues have not gone away.

Narratives have flown freely ever since January 6, 2021, and it's tough at times to get the real story, especially from the leftist mainstream media. One man has written a fact-filled article detailing the day's events. Back with us today after a long hiatus is the author of that article, Bill Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He and John discuss the use of the word ‘insurrection' to describe the event, the lack of firearms by the protestors, the motives for the continuous leftist narrative, the so-called “bi-partisan” J6 committee, and the insertion of agents provocateurs on that day. It's all J6 all the time on today's podcast.

John is taking a well-deserved day off after a long road trip, so Producer Steve takes over the microphone today – yes, John will be back! What do calling everything racist and forced mandates have in common? Steve looks at what the progressives are really saying when they claim things are racist and what elites are really telling all of us when they force mandates on us. Hint: it's not a flattering message. And because it's not flattering, they get the media outlets to gaslight us into believing it's true. We can – and must – fight against it.

Pat Wood: Media Cartel Monopoly

The Senate Judiciary Committee is looking at Senate Bill 673, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. How can the media cartel use this to their advantage? Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. The bill offers immunity from antitrust laws to big media companies and allows them to go after social media companies for shares of profit. The old school mainstream news outlets want this legislation to pass so they can siphon off others to stay afloat. Their business plans have failed so they've resorted to this.

Some media outlets are beginning to comment on the dysfunction and failures of the Biden administration. How will they extract themselves from the narratives they're anchored to, all the while not irking the far left progressives? Joining us today is Bruce Thornton (fresnostate.edu), Professor Emeritus of Classics and Humanities at Cal State Fresno. He examines why the media seems to be slowly turning on the Biden administration – and it has nothing to do with principles. They are slaves to ideology and a lot of it stems from the indoctrination in our education system, something Professor Thornton has had a front row seat to for years.
