We have entered a new era of activist journalism. It’s not that activism through the printed and spoken word are new. This era is an unmasking that has deteriorated the need for subterfuge and subtle nuances to make a journalist’s or publications point and replaced them with unabashed bias.
In the good ol’ days of just a few years ago, those reporting the news were forced to express their biases by presenting information with nuanced tilt that affected the readers and viewers subconsciously. They would “report” the news but do it in a way that feigned lack of bias by inserting it cautiously, strategically.
Very quickly, we’re seeing the need to use the old school tactics fading. Now, they just express their bias and move on.
The lines between news reporting and commentary have been blurred. So much more gets blatantly editorialized in the news than it was before the 2016 political campaigns, which seem to have been the turning point for journalists. Any illusion of an unbiased press were wiped away during campaign coverage.
Then, Donald Trump won the presidency. That shattered all remain pretense. As a result, the news is clearly biased. No need for subterfuge.
We saw this coming, which is why we made NOQ Report in the first place. The prevalence of leftist media needs more voices to counter them. This is why it is so important that our readers support us with donations. We will not be able to survive and thrive without help.
Conservatives have the winning message if it’s allowed to be shared to the masses. On most topics, the conservative perspective easily makes much more sense. On other topics, there’s a need to expound on the topic in order to drive it home to the American people, but even then it can be done with enough effort.
The problem is the majority of what Americans are spoon fed by mainstream media and leftist news outlets contradicts the right perspective. It’s no wonder so-called “Democratic Socialism” is on the rise in the minds of many Americans, especially young people. The concept is continuously propagandized to the masses.
Children, teens, and young adults are being indoctrinated by a leftist education system before being passed off to the media to continue the brainwashing. There has never been a time when relevant conservative voices were more necessary than they are today. It’s only going to get worse unless news outlets like NOQ Report can be driven to succeed.
The right messages need to get out there, but in a sea of wrong messages it can be challenging. It’s up to patriots to step up and make our voices heard. If we fail, the tides will turn in government as more leftists win office. The time to act is now.
