I’m writing this before the inauguration. I’m already listening to the legacy media spin the news.. and Trump isn’t in office yet. Get used to it. We should expect a steady stream of propaganda for the next 8 years as the Socialists and RINOs try to discredit our choice for president. Count on it. Plan for it, and chose your news carefully.
The media spin isn’t subtle. It is amazing how hard the Socialists need to spin the news to feel comfortable. Yes, the legacy media tells the socialists minority the lies they want to hear. If you don’t believe me, then please ask yourself this question over the next few days. Which event got more media coverage? Did the media report on the hundreds of thousands of american citizens who marched for life in DC.. and in cities across the nation.. or did the legacy media heap coverage on the handful of paid actors who protested Trump’s inauguration? Told ya. The media wants us to focus on their issues rather than the real news.
Dear mainstream media, your bias is showing.. Again.
Look at how legacy media spun the news in order to create new classes of “victim-activists”. There will be a hundred thousand women marching to stop state-funded abortion. The legacy media will extensively cover a few progressive women who don’t like our new president. The legacy media will claim that all women dislike Trump.
That is paid propaganda, not reporting the news.
We’re in an era of “post factual partisanship”, so don’t expect honesty from the legacy media. This is the same media who leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton during the campaign. They cleared their “news articles” with Democrat campaign managers before they were published. This is the same same media who magnified Trump scandals. At the same time, the legacy media ignored the billion dollar pay-to-play corruption of the Clinton Foundation.
For the last eight years, the legacy media couldn’t see anything wrong as corruption flourished in DC.
This is the same media who hid Obama’s corruption as our ex-president violated the law time after time. Socialists politicians looked the other way as well. All that will change now that Trump is in office. There are millions of contradictory laws on the books. The media and the Socialist politicians will demand that Trump follow every one of them.. to. the. letter.
That isn’t a double standard. The media will shift from no-standards-at-all.. to condemning each imperfection in the Trump administration.
The Socialists and the legacy media will have company. The RINOs will join them because Trump threatened their graft-as-usual. I’ll ask you now to carefully consider who you believe.. and what you believe. For the next eight years, we will have to search hard to simply get the facts.. and we will have to search harder to understand what they mean.
There is a sliver of good new in this ongoing propaganda war. You wouldn’t read a minor writer like me if the legacy media was scrupulously honest. That is why I’m grateful for sites like Ammoland. Like you, I’d trade all my readers for a few more honest reporters. They are out there. Please follow them.
In the meantime, don’t confuse the legacy media with reality.. or the news.

I have been calling them the Pravda West Media now for about 2 decades now for the PROPAGANDA they spread…..
The Pravda West Media tows the Democrat Party line so well that they would make Stalin PROUD…..
I swear, I hate to say this or feel this way even, but I would love to see My President, Donald Trump, let me say it again, louder, PRWSIDENT DONALD TRUMP!!!!!, do like another figure of somewhat recent history did and line all of these bastards up and dispatch them. Again, I apologize, but the depths to which these false leaders have decended is the most vile display of greed and lies Ive ever seen. They all say they are in politics and in Washington DC ( read cesspool) fighting for us. Ive heard this for years. Well, if all… Read more »
@Bill, Hmmm that is a lot of killing, and where would we stop?
It does not advance the cause to advocate violence. This is a free country and they do have the right to lie to us. Our choice is to vote with our hands, vote with our pocketbooks and write them civilly telling them they are wrong. Dont fall into their trap of demonizing us.
Sell them the rope to hang themselves.
They will do it . . . getting Trump elected is only the first step.
I watch all the news people because all of them have their own spin. Well there might be a couple at each agency that report the facts and leave out their personal comments, but 99% of them are all the same, as in looking at things from their own slant. Me I want it straight up, very hard to find that kind of news anymore. I hope you that flop right or left figure this out sooner then later. Good Luck, Dave
“so don’t expect honesty from the legacy media.” This should go without saying because, in the end, the media is paid by the actions and activities of the political class in Washington DC. So what can be said about the politicians transfers directly to their mouthpieces. Robert Higgs sums it up best: “People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and, if need be, murdering those who resist? The public persists in supposing that… Read more »
Lies, damn lies, and dems with an agenda.
There’s another kind of Dem?
