The mainstream press is working overtime to make sure that American public is propagandized into believing that CNN’s Jim Acosta was not out line when he put his hands on a female White House intern at Thursday’s White House press briefing.
Press outlets are claiming that the White House used a “manipulated video” to justify the yanking of Acosta’s press credentials. The video is “manipulated” inasmuch as it is zoomed in, and played on a loop. None of the footage is faked. Here is the video shared by Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

“We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video,” Sanders said.
Everyone saw the video. Acosta clearly put his hands on the intern. But the press is literally telling the American public that they did not see what they saw. It is a conspiracy theory of epic proportions.
Other news outlets are whitewashing the event.
The journalist [Acosta] dodged and then blocked several attempts to take the microphone by using his arm and the side of his hand against the intern’s arm, addressing her with “pardon me ma’am” as he did so, and indicating that he was trying to ask Trump another question.
According to TechCrunch’s account, Acosta did not lay his hands on the intern. Instead he “us[ed] his arm and the side of his hand against the intern’s arm.” This is precisely this type of weasel-wording that foments distrust of the media by the American people.
Acosta himself says the account is a lie:

MSNBC completely left out Acosta’s role in the interaction, instead shaming the intern for trying to take the mic from him at the direction of the leader of the free world.
“BREAKING: White House aide grabs and tries to physically remove a microphone from CNN Correspondent Jim Acosta during a contentious exchange with President Trump at a news conference,” the outlet said.

This should not be a controversial issue. Acosta, after two years of whining, grandstanding and bickering with Trump forcibly touched a White House house intern. Backing him is a shameless ploy by the press, just when the American public thought that they could not possibly stoop lower.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
