The buzz may have died down about two videos – one doctored and one edited properly – of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, but only because the damage was done. This is how the left operates, which makes it how the bulk of mainstream media operates. They take one thing, associate it with another, then either issue corrections or change the subject. Here’s how it went down.
First, the President Tweeted out a montage video of Pelosi sounding as Pelosi often sounds, like a confused person with challenges communicating properly. It was a good post.
Then, similar video popped up that had been doctored to make Pelosi sound drunk. Whoever made the 2nd video slowed it down. It was funny, quite obviously doctored, and most importantly had nothing to do with the President’s Tweet.
But leftist media pounced. I watched as the stories evolved. First, the reports were about the doctored video going viral. Then, more stories started popping up that mentioned the President had Tweeted an “edited” video of Pelosi. Soon, the two stories were essentially merged so the impression that was delivered by the “evolved” story was that the President had Tweeted a doctored video.
When pushback started coming from the right, the story died down. There was no longer a need to push the story further because basic levels of scrutiny proved the evolved narrative wrong, so they eliminated the need for scrutiny by moving on. After all, the bulk of the progressives who are now believing the President of the United States Tweeted a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi aren’t following the people on social media who cried foul, so it was time to leave the story alone.
It’s jamming, plain and simple.
One America News host Liz Wheeler addressed the issue and asked, “Since when does mainstream media care about truth or accuracy?” There may have been a time before most social media users were born when the media strove to deliver accurate news, but those days are behind us. Today, mainstream media focuses solely on delivering fake news that can harm the President and the occasional real news story as long as it wouldn’t help the President.
Mainstream media’s playbook is so overused that it’s both easily recognizable and still repulsive to those who actually want to know the truth. America’s downfall can be wrapped up in two words: “Fake News.” It’s happening, folks.
