In the heat of last night’s debate, there was a lot of discussion on social media about Chris Wallace’s clear bias towards helping Joe Biden. Bickering between the two candidates seemed to annoy many. A few zinger lines made headlines, as they always do.
But there’s one thing that was not properly discussed at the debate that’s at top of mind for millions of America. Which candidate is more capable and willing to keep Americans safe in the face of rising crime and anarchy? Conventional wisdom would say that since it’s all rising now under President Trump, that Biden would be the one who has the advantage on that particular argument. But during the debate, he didn’t just fail to take advantage of that notion. He avoided it throughout.
Debates usually come down to two things: Sound bites and general sentiment. The sound bites almost always come out as headlines since it’s zingers and gaffes that make for media fodder. But general sentiment is much more challenging to quantify and report on, especially when the debate itself was a convoluted mess. Nevertheless, we have a window into how people feel about a particular topic based on presence in—and absence from—post-debate takes.
As of noon Eastern the day after the debate, the sentiment that Joe Biden made people feel safer in the face of rising anarchy is non-existent. I’m not seeing it discussed in any of the shows, even from progressive mainstream media. I’m definitely not seeing it on social media as the main point of contention is about who won and whether or not Biden was wearing a listening device. Do Americans feel they’ll be safer under Biden? That does not seem to be the case.
It was conspicuous that President Trump called out Antifa while Joe Biden inaccurately quoted FBI Director Christopher Wray in saying that Antifa is “an idea.” Despite mainstream media’s best efforts to downplay Antifa as a threat by calling their anarcho-communist actions and violence “peaceful protests,” Americans are waking up to the truth that they are a major threat to leftist cities and they are spreading throughout the country.
Joe Biden could have come out strongly against the anarchy. Instead, he gave a lukewarm, obligatory denouncement of “all violence” and let Chris Wallace change the subject for him. In other words, he will NOT keep us safe and the people know it.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
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. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
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 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. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
