There was a time not too long ago when I considered the Washington Examiner to be among the most honest right-leaning news outlets out there. But in recent years, they’ve attempted to label themselves as centrist, unbiased, and in no way beholden to conservatives or Republicans. It’s worked out as they intended; just like Fox News and Daily Caller, their pageviews have risen in during the Trump administration even as they’ve systematically changed their editorial stance.
But like Fox News and the Daily Caller, they have abandoned their conservative roots. That’s their choice, and even though I do not personally like that—there are too many left-leaning news outlets that require a counterbalance—I do not hold that decision against them. However, they’ve joined the opposition to both President Trump and conservatism. That’s something I must call out, especially in light of their recent post calling on the President to concede.
The article could have easily been written as a Democrat press release or Chinese Communist Party advertorial. The talking points are straight out of the disinformation playbook being run by mainstream media and Big Tech. For example, they claim, “No fraud or error produced tens of thousands of additional votes for Biden in battleground states.”
Even if we ignore that they’re stating as fact something that cannot be established with anywhere near certainty, we can’t ignore that it’s almost certainly incorrect. The circumstantial data for massive voter fraud in at least six states is public and very damning. But within the evidence we haven’t seen yet, evidence that will not be public until it’s presented in court, it is almost certain we’ll see fraud and errors that contributed well more than tens of thousands of additional votes for Biden.
They then went on to invoke Georgia’s hand count. It is now known based on legal filings by Lin Wood that the hand counted numbers in Georgia were not reported. Local election officials were instructed to report the original counts, making the so-called victory questionable still. The hand count was for show and there is still open litigation to demonstrate this.
But arguably the most egregious act of propaganda was when the Washington Examiner pulled a Tucker Carlson by saying if there were evidence, the Trump team would have given it to the press. This is ludicrous prima facie. With the election over, the attorneys have one goal: Winning lawsuits that would make the election lawful. It does not behoove them to play their hands prior to discovery and open court. But the editors at the Washington Examiner are well aware of this. They’re gaslighting with leftist talking points.
Fox News, Drudge Report, Daily Caller, and now the Washington Examiner have lurched to the left. It’s time for patriots to embrace independent and honest news outlets who still know conservativism stands for truth.
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.
