HuffPost Accuses Trump of Lying During Border Security Speech BEFORE Speech Even Begins

Published

In terms of consumable media, it doesn’t get much worse than left-wing rag HuffPost. But Ariana Huffington’s former pet project reached a previously unthinkable level of horrendous when it accused President Donald J. Trump of lying during his Tuesday night border security speech – before the speech even happened.

“Here are some of the biggest falsehoods the president is likely to tell on Tuesday,” said the piece.

HuffPost based its assumptions on “mistruths and outright lies” it claims Trump has told about the wall before. To be sure, writing a piece based only on assumptions is neither a standard nor advisable journalistic practice. HuffPost is known for defining the term “journalism” loosely.

The site said that Trump is lying when he says that Democrats want open borders.

“Trump has regularly claimed that Democrats are the ‘party of crime’ and want ‘open borders’ with Mexico, both blatantly false statements. Leading Democrats have argued for years now that a wall along the southern border would be wasteful and ineffective, instead supporting legislation that would increase border security efforts,” it said.

Riddle me this, HuffPost. In the current scenario, the Democrats have the opportunity to definitively close the border. All they have to do is vote to fund a border wall. But they will not vote to definitely close the border. How does that not make them the party of open borders at this very moment?

The site also griped that Trump has said that criminals and terrorists are crossing the border illegally. They say this is a lie. But everyone who crosses the border illegally is a criminal, and Tuesday morning – the same day of publication of the HuffPost piece, NBC said that at least six terrorists crossed the border in the first half of 2018.

The piece goes on like this for about 600 more words. Is it any wonder that Trump calls the mainstream press the enemy of the people?

SILVER LINING? Coronavirus Economic Fallout Expected to Destroy Hundreds of Main Stream Newspapers, Magazines

The fake news media is dying even more quickly because of coronavirus.

Published

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause massive economic damage throughout many sectors, and what remains of the legacy journalism industry may be wiped out as a result.

The Seattle Times serves as a microcosm for what is happening to local papers throughout America in the age of coronavirus. As they deal with a community ravaged by the pandemic, their advertising budget has completely dried up, and they may not be able to remain in business for much longer.

“Virtually all entertainment advertising is gone, restaurants gone. Automobile advertising is starting to get impacted,” said Alan Fisco, the president and CFO of the paper, to BuzzFeed News.

Even though the paper’s “online traffic has been at times off the charts,” they are unable to properly monetize that traffic. They fear that the ad revenue may be lost forever by the time the coronavirus pandemic comes to a close.

“If you go back to events in the past where you’ve seen some big impacts [to ad spending], does all of it come back? It hasn’t,” Fisco said.

Ken Doctor, who analyzes the news industry with the firm Newsonomics, believes that the economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be much worse for the media industry than the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a 19 percent decline in revenue for newspapers.

“[Newspaper] advertising revenue is getting just wiped out,” Doctor said to BuzzFeed News, adding that the situation is already “worse than in 2008 and 2009.”

For many media entities, Doctor believes that this will be the end. He said that “this seems like for them truly it is the full extinction event. I don’t know how they come back.”

The Seattle Times may be able to survive due to rising subscriber fees. Other big-name dailies – like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post – are expected to weather the storm as well. However, all of the smaller local newspapers and digital providers will likely be wiped out completely.

“I think there we will unfortunately see more closures of newspapers, more news deserts as a result of this,” Fisco said.

Media companies and reporters are already reporting on the early damage that has been caused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, who published the initial story about how the media industry is hurting because of coronavirus, said their provider is working to avoid firing staffers in these trying times.

“BuzzFeed’s leadership team is exploring a range of ways to support employees while protecting our business,” said Chief Communications Officer Carole Robinson. “Our goal is to avoid layoffs, with an alternative plan that requires some sacrifice from all of us — and especially those on the executive team — ultimately allowing us to remain a strong company over the long-term.”

The coronavirus pandemic is a worst case scenario come to life, but the economic fallout from the crisis may prove to be fatal for the fake news industry.
