In the early 20th Century, it was called ‘control of information’. Today, it is referred to as ‘fact-checking’, ‘disinformation’ and ‘misinformation’. Any way we look at it, censoring is an unconstitutional violation of our 1st Amendment rights. The media has been manipulating our perception for decades. In the 1960s, Malcomb X said, “The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and … the guilty innocent ... they control the minds of the masses.” As a result of the Nuremberg trials, journalists were hung for being, “central element(s) of the Nazi propaganda machine.” Today, media manipulation has intensified, and is attempting to take control of Idaho.
One instigator is the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry (IACI). IACI is involved in lobbying for a variety of issues, including ‘managing’ the media. Recently, they have been behind an effort to place reporters in every corner of the state in order to ensure Idahoans have ‘access’ to the ‘right’ information. Additionally, IACI, with its active PAC, has a great influence on elections.
A report states that a "new public benefit corporation backed by George Soros and others is launching a new media company which highlights efforts to tackle disinformation” and is called "Good Information Inc." It comes as the corporate media struggles to convince Americans that all information which does not conform to the political ideology of corporate journalists should be labeled ‘misinformation’.
One example of media manipulation includes news agencies which spent over $100 million in smear campaigns to ensure that Donald Trump would not prevail in the 2020 election.
Another is the way the media vilifies candidates who stand up and fight for Idahoans and glorify ones who continue to promote big government and restrict our freedoms.
Mainstream news outlets are also acting as advertisers by reporting, for example, that the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children five to 11 is safe and effective, according to – wait for it – Pfizer! This is not only a free commercial for a drug company, but it is leading broadcasts as if it was REAL NEWS.
Recently, Steve Mitton’s popular show “Radioactive” was cancelled. Is this yet another example of the mainstream media silencing conservatives and inhibiting free speech? Even local newspaper articles skirt the real news.
Idahoans, question everything, follow the money, stand for freedom, and get involved with other freedom fighters!
