media double standard

John gives a dose of reality sprinkled with a dash of hope on today's podcast.  After the ugly events of Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol, it helps to step back and get some perspective.  John makes comparisons to the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 – how media and the left assigned every conservative a measure of guilt for the tragedy.  You're seeing the same thing this week.  There was little to no condemnation, especially against a collective group of people, over the summer for the two months of rioting and death then.

There is a major paradigm shift occurring in the world right now – the Great Reset is a big part of it and it is marching forward unhindered.  John cites several examples from Steel past that foretold of the Great Reset we're seeing now.  Could we be in the End Times – or at least the run-up to it?  John gives hope from Scripture that God is with us and He will win out.  We will have to go through some tough times, but God will prevail. 

John & Steve: Fact-Checking the Media

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. 

As he does once a month, John travels to the studios of KYMS radio for an interview with Lee Lancaster.  For our Sunday bonus podcast, we play John's appearance from this Friday where he and Lee discuss a variety of topics, including the attacks in France, the tenets of cancel culture, the history of how the media has become so corrupted, the need to stand up for the truth – even if it's unpopular, and of course, an update on the martyred church.

Listening to the media is enough to make you crazy! On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve sit down and try to make sense of it all. They discuss the tactics media use to distort the truth and advocate for one side of the political aisle. They also get into the kerfuffle over the article in The Atlantic trouncing the President for being disrespectful to our military.

If there's one thing you don't want politicized, it's life-saving drugs and the science behind them. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. Politically correct thinking is slowly taking over the world of science and it's to the detriment of not only the people it could help but also the scientists who are tasked with helping them.

Economics, politics, and religion are the three primary topics discussed on Steel on Steel. This week, we open the show with an extended conversation featuring all three topics. Joining John are David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvanyweeklycommentary.com), co-hosts of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary, which you can find on our Steel Podcast Network. They examine the economy possibility of another Cold War, this time with China, and how the global economy is affected by the U.S. election cycle. Marxism is now playing a greater role in global economics and politics. They also discuss Christianity's threat to communism and relying on God during times of crises. Finishing up the show this week, we welcome Dr. John Lott, Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center (www.crimeresearch.org). He looks at several gun control myths and how the media misrepresent the facts surrounding shootings and completely ignore the ‘good guy with a gun saves the day' stories. He also paints a picture as to what this country would look like should all guns be outlawed.

In order to prove a myth false, you need facts on your side. On today's podcast, we welcome Dr. John Lott, Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center (www.crimeresearch.org), who discusses his new book on gun control myths. The greatest purveyor of these myths are the media, who misrepresent the facts surrounding shootings and completely ignore the ‘good guy with a gun saves the day' stories.

Dr. Lott looks at whether the violence related to current rioting will affect the gun control debate. He also paints a picture as to what this country would look like should all guns be outlawed.
