My guess is we’d probably believe it was a duck. This is the same premise that Americans use to make decisions about the news they read or hear. If it sounds like the news, looks like the news, they then take for granted that it is the “real news.”
It’s not difficult to figure out why millions of people believe every word from the Mainstream media. It’s a very simple equation that has been proven to work. Lie plus lie plus lie = belief. In other words, if one hears the same thing 24/7 from multiple news sources they begin to believe the message must be true. This is how the human mind has been trained to work.
In 2016 the Liberals and NETS fell into their own trap. They convinced themselves and others that Hilary Rodham Clinton would become the 45th President of the USA. They heard the propaganda 24/7 from early morning to late at night and thus were convinced that despite the warnings, they were listening to the truth beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Also, the headline news in 2016 from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NYT, WaPo, talk show hosts, Liberal bloggers and most newspapers all said the same thing. There’s no way in “H—.” That Donald J. Trump could win the Presidential Election.
Most of the polls were inaccurate, the Senate poll was close to getting it right, but they even had egg on their face when Donald J. Trump won the Election. So how did Liberals and the MSM get it so wrong? Simply because they were human, and the mind starts believing what it hears if it’s repeated often enough.
The Liberal news stations, anchors, bloggers, Democrats/Liberal voters all believed their own “fake news,” during the final few weeks before the Presidential Election. They were convinced that Donald Trump could not win, because headline news that came from the Mainstream Media said, “Trump did not stand a chance of winning.”
This is why millions of American Liberals were in a total meltdown the night that voters selected the next 45th President. Mentally, they were ill-prepared to see (a) Hillary Clinton not win an election that was supposed in the bag and (b) an outsider become the Commander in Chief.
As we speak, on this first day of the New Year 2018, the left still has not recovered from their shock over the results of the 2016 presidential election.
There is definitely a lesson to be learned here by all Americans. Do not believe everything you hear from the Liberal or Conservative news media. Take time to do your own homework, search for the truth and do not sit back daily and absorb everything from the news media as gospel truth. But what happens when the News Media is silent?
There are times that our Government hides very important information from the public and you do not hear any news, good or bad. The Uranium One scandal is an example of not hearing any news, so Americans were held hostage by the news media, not one news venue breathed a word.
Several years later, information is finally dribbling out, but not enough for Americans to be able to differentiate the truth from the lies and propaganda. The one thing we can take to the bank is that our Government kept this scandal under wraps for years.
We are told that Barack Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, DOJ, FBI, CIA, Putin’s Russian nuclear industry officials, State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment and many, many more Government employees all had their fingers in our Uranium pie.
The DOJ knew about Uranium One way back in 2009 and supposedly investigated the Uranium scandal for 5 years without breathing a word to Americans. In fact, our Government was completely happy to sweep all information about the scandal under the rug, hoping that it would not be discovered or reach the ears of Americans.
As stated earlier the media venues did not make a peep about the Uranium scandal for years. Now all Liberal media are parroting the same thing daily, “there is no Uranium One scandal” and “there’s nothing to worry about.” Funny thing about this, the Mainstream Media is blaming the Russians, however, the Russians would not own our Uranium if our Government had not been in bed with them.
Conservative Media on the flip side says we have traitors in our Government who have kicked us under the bus and sold 20% of our Uranium to Russia unbeknownst to us.
So, the questions beg who do we believe, and will these corrupt politicians be prosecuted and placed behind bars for their criminal behavior? Another question would be this, “how many Americans really care if we’ve lost 20% of our precious Uranium?”
If you care, then take time to study it starting back in 2009 – do not take anyone’s word for this scandal. Find out the truth on your own.
