Dear Conservative Media: Do Some More Damn Reporting
If a major donor wanted to truly change the trajectory of the Republican Party, investing in journalism would be a smart place to start.
BY Ben Howe



The American political left has something that their counterparts on the right do not.

It’s not a particular point of view, or a thing that is particular to a point of view. It is more foundational than that. It is something utterly essential not just to the growth and credibility of the right, but to the political health of the American landscape at large.

What’s missing is an entire subset of media. Sure, the conservative media has solid opinion writers and deep-thinking essayists by the handful. And within that hand are diverse opinions, notwithstanding recent, glaring errors in judgment at some outlets. There is depth. There is talent. However, there is almost no original reporting.

The right has stopped being investigative, stopped being reporters and journalists. It’s occurring precisely at a time when vigorous reporting is most desperately needed. But what’s even more ominous is that the money may not be there to start it again.

Why?

Let’s first take a step back in time.

In politics, the notion of distrusting the media is as old as the media. For partisans, anything less than an equally partisan and allied news report is, by definition, helping the other side. If you report fairly, you aren't helping the cause, which means you’re hurting it.

For conservatives, it’s much more than that. The sheer density of the liberal world view in mainstream press outlets—of Democrats working in media—has created an atmosphere that far exceeds the mere distrust of the typical partisan. On one side is conservative philosophy, on the other is the near entirety of media.

That war with the press has been a rallying cry for some time. But for people my age, it began as a warning issued by radio host Rush Limbaugh.

It was formative for me to hear Limbaugh, booming through the stereo speakers in my dad’s car when I was 12 years old, stridently and urgently warning that the press we see at night was false, fake, and against us.

Back then, most news consumed by the average American came by way of nightly network news programs, from anchors like Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Dan Rather, or Ted Koppel, among others. In the early ’90s, CNN made big waves with the 24-hour news format. But until the Gulf War brought Wolf Blitzer and the Patriot missile into everyone’s living rooms, the cable network was still more of a novelty than the primary source of information.

CNN stayed though, and over time Fox News and MSNBC joined the cable line-up.

Former Fox Analyst Blasts Network As “Destructive Propaganda Machine For Trump”
The Ring of Fire
Published on Jun 8, 2018
Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters spent more than a decade as a Fox News analyst, but he recently quit due to the fact that the network was spreading blatantly false propaganda in order to bend reality and support Donald Trump. In his first interview since leaving the network, Peters tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper exactly what he thinks about the network, and it isn’t pretty

https://fair.org/home/anti-trump-cartoons-stopped-by-censor-at-pittsburgh-post-gazette/

Rob Rogers long time Policitical Cartoonist for the Pittsburg Post Gazette has had many of his political cartoons censored by the new editor who came into the job in March. However he published them as always did on Twitter so his followers did get to see them. It seems quite a few subscribers were angry at this censorship and cancelled their subscriptions and other readers decided to boycott the paper from now on.

Above is the link to the article along with the censored cartoons if you are interested...

‘Fox & Friends’ Host Tells Trump: You Got It Wrong With Putin

If President Trump wasn’t taking the intense and widespread criticism of his weak Monday performance alongside Vladimir Putin seriously, maybe this will be the wake-up call he needs. Brian Kilmeade, one of the hosts of Trump’s favorite morning show, Fox & Friends, addressed the president directly Tuesday morning, telling him he got it wrong when he backed Putin’s denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election over the evidence-based conclusions of his own intelligence services. Senior Republicans have been among those saying Trump got it badly wrong at the summit in Helsinki. Addressing Trump directly, Kilmeade said: “When Newt Gingrich, when Gen. Jack Keane, when Matt Schlapp say the president fell short and made our intelligence apparatus look bad, I think it’s time to pay attention and it’s easily correctable from the president’s perspective. Nobody’s perfect, especially [after] 10 intensive days of summits, private meetings, and everything on his plate. But that moment is the one that’s going to stand out unless he comes out and corrects it.”

Trump’s Deceptive And Possibly Illegal Way Of Manipulating The Media
The Ring of Fire
Published on Aug 4, 2018
Donald Trump loves to endorse books, even though the man likely hasn’t picked up a book to read since he was in grade school. But there’s a reason he likes to Tweet out book recommendations – it gets him positive media coverage. An analysis of the books that Trump has recommended has shown that almost all of them have been tied to media pundits and hosts who cover Trump favorably.

Another Fox News Host Quits Because Of Network’s Pro-Trump Propaganda
The Ring of Fire
Published on Aug 7, 2018
Another Fox News correspondent has resigned from the network after spending 9 years as a correspondent. Conor Powell said via his social media that he had decided to terminate the relationship and that those who have spoken with him will know why. That ominous message seems to point to the network’s growing pro-Trump propaganda wing led by people like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
