I HAVEN’T commented on the Jussie Smollett Fake Hate Crime story brought to us yet again by the mainstream media, because it was so unbelievable that I spent the last few days down the rabbit hole.
The Justice Kavanaugh story, the Covington boys fake news story and now the Smollett fake hate crime make the last six months a very bad time for the fake news media industry in the US – by which I mean CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, amongst others.
However, sadly, because hate sells, what the media lose in reputational damage (which is immense) they make up in revenue as all these sensational, anti-Trump stories generate a lot of clicks.
This is what the hate stream Leftist media call the Trump Bump in the US – sales of papers which were considered dead in the water such as the New York Times have risen. They must therefore generate fake narrative after fake narrative to satisfy the insatiable appetite of your average anti-Trump, anti-Christian, anti-male Democrat voting reader.
The only downside is a divided America, where red and blue marriages break up, red and blue friendships end, and Democrat voters lose their minds while fantasising about their oppression to such an extent that they have to make up TV series imagining the widespread rape of pregnant women, and even a wealthy actor pays people to beat him up and then lies and lies and lies, saying it was Trump supporters.
Remember: hate sells.
Happily, Mark Steyn lays it all out in this latest Steyn Post.
Another good watch.
