As the mainstream media were busily posting their anti-Trump diatribes today, I came across this video of two Americans debating the presidential contest on Press TV, although the word “debating” I use figuratively, since both agree with each other: a Clinton presidency would be a catastrophe.
“If the truth about how bloodthirsty and how corrupt this person (Clinton) is actually were carried by the media, she’d be ten times more unpopular than she is already.”
Well…that one’s hard to argue with, so I won’t try. And neither, as you will see, does the “debate” opponent. Still a very lively discussion nonetheless, and I hope you enjoy the video.
As for Clinton’s bloodthirstiness, the story of her “Libya Tick Tock” email should be on the front page of every single paper in the country today (you can go to Wikileaks and read the full text of the email). But alas, the media seem more intent on demonizing Trump than informing readers how much effort Hillary put forth in destroying an entire nation.
In fact, just today the following headlines have appeared:
“Donald Trump and the Mob” (Wall St. Journal)
“Donald Trump had a Bizarre and Abysmal August” (Huffington Post)
“Donald Trump’s Little Mexico Stunt Posed Big Security Risks, Say Secret Service Veterans” (Daily Beast)
“Here’s Why Donald Trump’s Plan to Build a Wall is Bogus” (Fortune)
“Fact Checking Donald Trump’s Immigration Speech in Arizona” (NBC)
“Fact Checking Donald Trump’s Immigration Speech in Phoenix” (Politifact)
“Fact Checking Donald Trump’s Immigration Speech” (ABC)
“Donald Trump a ‘Diplomatic Embarrassment,’ Dem VP Candidate Tim Kaine Says” (Yahoo News)
“Donald Trump is Dangerously Wrong on the Immigration-Terror Link” (Time)
“The Duplicity of Donald Trump” (New York Times)
“Donald Trump Confirms He’s Still a Nativist and a Racist” (New Republic)
“Be Careful When Donald Trump is Being Nice to You” (Washington Post)
The mainstream media seem to have lost a bit of perspective. All of these headlines recall to mind the old line about the person who “doth protest too much.”
