It’s stories like the latest from Huffington Post that prompted me to put all of my eggs in the conservative media basket. Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance apparently has something to do with the President of the United States declaring the news media is “the enemy of the people,” according to HuffPo.
I’ve read some seriously crazy stories on leftist media, but this one ranks high on the list as most unhinged.
But on Wednesday, asked specifically whether his use of the phrase “enemy of the people” ― made famous by dictators from Adolf Hitler to Joseph Stalin to Mao Zedong ― to disparage journalists may have contributed to Khashoggi’s disappearance, Trump did not answer. Instead, he walked to his waiting limousine for a ride to a political rally.
Keep in mind, this story appeared near the top of Google News.
We’ve covered Khashoggi’s disappearance with multiple stories that do not try to pin this on the President or any Americans. If the Saudis did this, then the blame belongs to Mohammed bin Salman and not a single statement by President Trump prompted him to call for Khashoggi’s harm.
This is what real coverage of the disappearance looks like:
This was a bold move made on foreign soil against a Saudi citizen with ties to the United States. In retrospect, it may seem obvious the world would pay attention, but it’s likely the Saudis expected this to be a blip on the news radar.
It hasn’t been. Between the Washington Post using every ounce of clout and reach they have to push out the story to nearly every U.S. news outlet covering it, the exposure Saudi Arabia is receiving from this had to be underestimated. If they’d known taking and/or killing a journalist would have this much blowback, it’s hard to imagine them executing the plan.
Mainstream media and popular news outlets on the internet are rife with outrageous leftism and hatred for conservative principles. This is why we made NOQ Report in the first place. Sadly, we’re running out of funds and running out of time.
I created a GoFundMe page three weeks ago. It hasn’t generated the response we need to keep this outlet running. Fundraising isn’t my strength, but we won’t betray the audience with spammy ads, either. So, that puts us in a pickle. We need donations. We need them immediately.
Conservative media is the best hedge to keep leftist ideologies from indoctrinating the masses with their incessant propaganda. Socialism, gun control, and reproductive rights are growing in popularity because of leftist media. Help us counter their efforts.
