Mocking, Distorting and Reinventing Reality: How Major Media Operate

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

In his book titled “Inventing Reality: The Politics of the Mass Media,” Michael Parenti explained that the fourth estate “serves the interests of the rich and powerful while (pretending) to serve the many.”

Instead of all the news that’s fit to print and broadcast, they consistently manipulate the public mind, filling it with content approved by powerful interests — in the form of managed news misinformation and disinformation.

Hard truths on major domestic and geopolitical issues are banned in their reports.

They’re carefully filtered. Fiction substitutes for facts, journalism the way it should be prohibited.

When preemptive wars on invented enemies are called liberating ones, civil liberties denied for our own good, and rigged elections masquerade as legitimate ones, the rule of law and a nation fit to live in no longer exist.

All of the above and more describe America’s dismal state, a nation hellbent for ruling the world unchallenged, along with exploiting, not serving, the vast majority of its people — totalitarian police state rule masquerading as democratic.

Election 2020 grand theft is one of many examples of debauched rule.

While Trump is wrong on most everything, hard evidence proved him right about brazen election fraud to assure he’s denied a second term.

Facts show he won the 2020 race for the White House. Biden/Harris lost.

Yet they’re highly likely to be inaugurated in January illegitimately, denying Trump four more years.

In response to his Wednesday night address on the fraudulent process, establishment media mocked him — Big Lies and mass deception their stock and trade.

The self-styled newspaper of record NYY continued its war of words on DJT — phony criticism most often, what’s featured in its latest edition.

Defying reality as it’s done consistently and repeatedly about Election 2020, the Times falsely claimed that Trump’s legitimate remarks about election rigging were “filled with lies (sic),” adding:

“(A)ssertions about voter fraud and accusing (Dems) of a conspiracy to steal the presidency” are false (sic) — ignoring hard evidence of indisputable truths.

Trump’s legal team “ma(de) allegations (sic) without any proof to back them up (sic).

Accusations were and remain indisputable, supported by volumes of hard evidence the Times swept under the rug and ignores.

It’s a lying machine, dedicated to mass deception, a propaganda operation, an illegitimate news and information source.

The neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post reinvented reality by calling Trump’s address an “attack on democracy (sic), (a) rant filled with baseless allegations of voter fraud and outright falsehoods (sic),” adding:

He “tried to leverage the power of the presidency to subvert the vote and overturn the election results (sic).”

In cahoots Dems, deep state dark forces, and other corporate-controlled establishment media, WaPo supports brazen election fraud over an open, free and fair process the broadsheet and other US powerful interests don’t tolerate.

The Wall Street Journal called Trump’s address his “latest rhetorical escalation…as he continues to contest the results of an election he lost (sic).”

The process was rigged long before election day, establishment media in league with powerful interests to assure he’s denied a second term.

Other coverup and denial of election fraud headlines included the following:

AP News: “Trump recycles unsubstantiated voter fraud claims (sic)”

AP News Fake Fact Check: “ Trump’s claims of vote rigging are all wrong (sic)”

Reuters: “Trump posts speech on baseless voter fraud claims (sic)”

ABC News: “Trump recycles unsubstantiated voter fraud claims (sic)”

NBC News: Fake “NBC Fact Checks Trump’s False Election Fraud Claims (sic)”

Chicago Tribune: “Trump unspools unsubstantiated voter fraud charges”

Los Angeles Times: “Trump’s Going Out As He Entered Amid Self-Induced Chaos (sic)”

Fox News: “Trump unleashes on why Biden can’t be president”

CNN: “Here’s the dumbest argument on 2020 vote fraud yet (sic)” — mocking cold, hard truths consistently suppressed by the most unreliable/distrusted television source.

NPR: “Trump’s Election Conspiracies (sic)…No Election Fraud Has Been Found (sic)”

Al Jazeera: “Trump releases video repeating debunked election fraud claims (sic)”

The BBC: “Trump stoking vast conspiracy…inciting violence”

London Guardian: “Trump throws baseless doubt on vote and falsely claims victory (sic)”

Reports by establishment media across the board on Trump’s Wed. address repeated the same or similar fake news talking points.

Ignoring brazen fraud, they unanimously support Election 2020 losers Biden/Harris over winner Trump.
