The mainstream media hate Pres. Trump, we all know that. Dan Bongino illustrates how media spin masters use word manipulation to create erroneous conclusions and then impose those conclusions on their unsuspecting viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those of you who are old enough to remember Bruce Lee and Enter the Dragon, there’s a scene in that movie where Bruce, when making fun of some overheated “karate master,” describes his fighting style as “The Art of Fighting Without Fighting.” Well, mainstream media has mastered the art of lying without (at least technically) lying, and they are holding a high degree of a black belt in distorting the reality.
Instilling maximum red line panic in you all the time based on an infantile fifth-graders understanding of basic statistics hoping you’re dumb enough to believe it.

There are lots of liars in the media. They lie for many different reasons. Could be hate, could be greed, could be stupidity. Every country has those. Some have more of them than others. The question is, how should we calculate the numbers to find out which nation has most of them? Should we go by raw numbers or per capita?
ABC News took the footage from a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, and presented it as the frontline battle between Syrian Kurds and the invading Turkish troops.
Starting at 0.47 Knob Creek gun range footage starts.
This video, obtained by ABC News, appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad.
Senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell, who is in Syria, said Monday on Good Morning America.
Appears to show the fury… It never appeared to be a Turkish attack. People at ABC News wanted it to be a Turkish attack, and they had made a decision to call it a Turkish attack. Unfortunately for ABC’s “news team”, we are not stupid and we pay attention.
This kind of “reporting” could have serious consequences, including but not limited to, causing a drop in the stock market. Of course, all those geniuses in ABC and other “news” outlets don’t care about consequences as long as they can make Trump administration look bad.
They (ABC News) regret the error.
Of course, they do. ABC News looks like a bunch of idiots not worthy of being called news organization.
It’s puzzling to me why we keep tolerating this kind of behavior coming from the news outlets. It seems that mainstream media will jump on every chance to create a crisis, and then use it to scare people into believing that the world as we know it is about to end.
Certain four-letter words can’t be said on network TV because that could offend someone. Certain situations can’t be depicted on network TV because that could hurt someone’s feelings. FCC makes sure that nothing offensive gets on the air. But, if it comes to news, there’s absolutely no oversight.
How about a “news” designed to create a fake crisis? News design to scare people to death and push them into making decisions that otherwise they would not make? Like selling a beautiful ocean-front summer house with significant loss because they ware made to believe that in a couple of months, the house will end up underwater. Or voting for some guy they usually would not vote for.
I think that allowing a lie to be published as a fact, is much more harmful than someone accidentally dropping the F-Bomb when talking about the weather.
So, FCC, where are you?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have no problem whatsoever with hard-working journalists who make every effort to keep us informed. Good or bad, sad or funny, if something happened I want to know about it. But I have enough political hacks masquerading as journalists creating crises every time someone passes gas in a public setting.
My simple explanation of what sharpie mark on NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) map means.

Lots of noise about nothing.
What I think has happened (and the following line of events is only the product of my imagination) was that President Trump wanted to know what was the worst possible scenario we could expect to happen with hurricane Dorian.
One of the experts said that if everything will go wrong, there’s a possibility that Dorian will reach south-east areas of Alabama.
President grabbed a black sharpie, and when asking: Can it move that far? He drew the line on the map. The expert said: Yes, it can.
And here we are. The mystery has been untangled. Now we can go back to our boring lives and stop worrying about how government officials in the White House use office supplies.
President Trump’s ability to drive his critics crazy is unmatched by anything in the entire Universe. As a response to “Sharpie Gate,” his campaign is selling Trump-branded permanent marker in its store.
Donald Trump’s reelection campaign just added a Trump-branded permanent marker (sharpie) to its web store, skillfully capitalizing on the Sharpie-gate spectacle.
The marker introduced by campaign manager Brad Parscale on his Twitter account is another, I think successful, attempt by Trump campaign to turn what could have been a controversy into an asset and poke some fun in “mainstream media” in the process.
Congrats to campaign manager Brad Parscale. I like the way you guys think.
