Why Many of Today’s News Reporters Believe It Is Their Duty to Lie to You

President Donald Trump rolled out a new immigration plan in a press conference held at the White House Rose Garden on May 16 that focused on addressing the major flaws in America’s current immigration laws and border control system.

During his presentation of his new plan, Trump said the following:

“We must also restore the integrity of our broken asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims—these are frivolous claims—to gain admission into our country. Asylum abuse also strains our public school systems, our hospitals, and local shelters, using funds that should—and that have to—go to elderly veterans, at risk youth, Americans in poverty, and those in genuine need of protection. We’re using the funds that should be going to them. And that shouldn’t happen.”

Trump finished by saying, My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum seekers by screening out the meritless claims. If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t, you will promptly be returned home.”

In an act of brazen dishonesty, here’s how CNN’s Jim Acosta summarized for his audience what the President said in a Tweet:

“Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: ‘These are frivolous claims.’”

That bit of sophistry quickly drew the ire of the Official Trump War Room account on Twitter, which called out Acosta’s dishonest reporting:

“How can you do this and go home at night thinking you’ve turned in an honest day’s work as a journalist?”

Acosta shot back the following:

“Hi @TrumpWarRoom.. in the transcript you provided you note that Trump describes asylum claims as “frivolous” and “meritless.” The transcript also notes Trump uses the term “asylum abuse.” Trump clearly is accusing asylum seekers of misleading immigration authorities as I said.”

Now, most people who saw what Acosta did here will wonder how he thinks he has any integrity whatsoever as a journalist after engaging in this kind of absurd behavior.

I happen to know quite well how people in the “DNC media complex”like Jim Acosta can do this kind of thing every single day and actually think of themselves as being heroic for doing so.

Let’s Go Back To 2008 For A Minute.

  1. to be honest, i relate to the dude who kicked the governator in the back and screamed “i need an appletini”

  2. People seem to forget that a place like ABC is run by 2 dudes, one a queer, the other one probably a closet queer. And both of them, obviously dyed in the wool communists.

    Everything goes through those degenerates … the tone, the color, the frames per fucking second.

  3. “When was the last time this vector scope was calibrated?”

    “Is this a trick question, you simpering shitbag? This is a digital edit room.”

    “I asked you when this vector scope was last calibrated…”

    “You are a fucking idiot. This vector scope doesn’t work, at all. This is a digital edit room. You can check the black burst with it. Except, why would you? Because you are a fucking moron?”

    I’m so fucking glad I retired.

  4. The media lies because doing so serves the agenda of their commie demonrat masters…an agenda they agree and support. They continue
    to lie for a fundamental reason….they suffer no consequences for
    doing so. When people like Acosta et.al start turning up dangling
    from lamp posts and trees in the park then and ONLY then will they
    reconsider their abusive assaults on truth and freedom. The same
    prescription of treatment would also work wonders on those holding
    public office.

  5. Their headline is WRONG!

    The NYT has been telling anti America lies for 90 years. The Post for at least 70 years. the LATimes for 54 years. CBS + NBC for at least 70 years. The Press has been publishing anti America lies as “news” for decades!

    Yes reporters believe it is their duty to denigrate America. But they have felt this was their duty since before most of you were born. Very little, if any, change in the last 60 years.

  6. Anyone who looks to the mainstream news for their information is too simple minded to ever waste time trying to clear their fogged brains.
    To truly have a free and open society it’s required of citizens to be vigilant and inquiring. Most people count on others to do that for them and therefore they’re easily misled. The mainstream media have made their focus on disinformation and it’s the failure of our citizens that have made them so effective.

  7. Journalism was never ‘honest’. It has always been biased. That’s why there’s a ‘freedom of the press’. Otherwise, we should shoot them for their lies.
    You need to understand what the press really is, and who’s running it.
