Liberals and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) continue to whine about “fake news” and conservative media without any attempt at introspection. The reason conservative media exists is clearly articulated every day on the pages of mainstream newspapers, and in the voices reporting the news on the major networks. Another such example of the blatant hypocrisy that exists in the mainstream media reared its head on Sunday when veteran “journalist” and former NPR news host Michele Norris explained what “Make America Great Again” really means.
Norris argued that Donald Trump’s most important campaign slogan was actually a “deeply encoded” message that signaled to white people that “people of color” would soon be sent to the “back of the line.”
This is the perfect example of the kind of “fake news” that permeates the mainstream media every single day. Norris is speaking as an expert on the subject of politics, media, and culture, and so viewers are likely to take her ridiculous opinion as something more than it actually is. ‘She must know what she’s talking about because she’s a guest on CBS’ most important Sunday show, Face the Nation!’ Sadly, Norris’ opinion is based solely on her own twisted political opinion and racial bias.
Throughout the campaign Donald Trump did his very best to woo African-American (and other minority) voters, who have suffered more than white Americans through the Obama era. Howard Portnoy at Liberty Unyielding has just a few of the facts about how bad Obama and the Democrats have been for minority Americans.
