CNN is a joke, but you already knew that. Still, it’s fun to highlight their unhinged version of “journalism” because they no longer even attempt to feign objective reporting. Everything is political. Everything is either “left is good” or “right is bad.” But it’s worse than Trump Derangement Syndrome. It’s now a mission to obfuscate the news to match their agenda.
What makes it all even worse is that as obvious as it is, we know there are still millions of Americans who tune in willfully for their progressive indoctrination. Only the truly stupid do not realize it’s propaganda tilted towards gaslighting conservatives and elevating leftists, but they still tune in. It’s confirmation bias in its ugliest form.
The latest edition of inconsistent reporting can be clearly seen in how they reported Black Lives Matter “protests” versus the Republican National Convention as it pertains to social distancing and mask-wearing. They have are one of the most complicit in spreading pandemic hysteria, but they are quick to turn a blind eye when the Neo-Marxists at Black Lives Matter are involved.

An emergency room doctor said he was concerned about the RNC event at the White House, but not so much about the BLM march today: This is a public health crisis they are marching against. Systemic racism has taken so many lives in our country… pic.twitter.com/2Obg3C8Z4h

Satire outlets may be fake, but at least they’re funny. There’s nothing funny about CNN even though the truthfulness of their reporting is on par with most satire outlets. The only joke is how unaware they seem about their own lost credibility.
Coronavirus lockdowns put the future of independent news at risk
Reports indicate rising traffic but drastically lower revenues for mid-sized independent news outlets.
The economic downturn from COVID-19 lockdowns has hit many industries in the gut. One industry that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is journalism. The corporate conglomerates controlling mainstream media outlets are able to weather the storm, but independent news outlets have seen revenues plummet to the point that many are considering shutting down. We know. We’ve had to consider the possibility ourselves.

We’ve always run a very tight ship, keeping expenses to a minimum by limiting travel and technology expenditures. This has proven to be beneficial during the economic crisis, but we would not have made it this far if not for our generous donors. I cannot appropriately express my appreciation to those who have helped us raise nearly $4,000 since we started asking for assistance. It has been a true blessing and has inspired us to work harder to bring the truth to light that mainstream media tries to hide.
As I note below, traffic is through the roof. The appetite for honest news reporting, conservative opinion writing, and right-leaning podcasts is high. Every day we pick up new readers and subscribers; it’s another blessing we do not take for granted. But despite the increases in traffic and viewership, revenues have continued to plummet. We have maxed out on the number of ads we run, and that’s definitely not by choice. Ideally, we would run minimal ads or no ads at all, but this isn’t a hobby. This is a business, the only one that supports my family, so I’ve chosen to do what I hate doing by having plenty of ads on the site. Even with more ads, revenues are not what they were before the coronavirus lockdowns. This is why we’re still desperately asking for help.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. Our initial estimate of $11,500 to stay afloat through the end of the year was understated. Just as revenues have gone down, so too have expenses risen. We need to pick up quite a bit more than expected; I won’t even venture a guess anymore. At this point, literally everything we receive helps us keep the dream of being a truth-centered news outlet alive.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready to talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. In these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
