In a time when our country is being run by a Neanderthal of the citrus variety, facts and “honest reporting” are of the utmost importance. This is why we must rely on media outlets such as the New York Times, MSNBC, CNN, Huffington Post, TIME Magazine, and BBC to give us the “real news” that helps us get through the dark ages by fighting against the likes of Cheeto Mussolini and his gang of Oompa Loompas in the White House. This is the unfortunate reality America, and if they lean left too bad, you are just going to have to accept that. It’s high time we stop with the unnecessary and fascist media criticism.
Some say, “The media is a bunch of liars who distort the facts to better suit profitable political narratives.” Well to that we must say, “Enough, you uneducated internet trolls!” If it weren’t for the media’s honest reporting, how else would we have known Donald Trump had a 1.7% chance of winning the 2016 Election, according to Natalie Jackson and Adam Hooper of the Huffington Post? How would we know that the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. was removed from the Oval Office, according to White House Correspondent for TIME Magazine Zeke Miller? How else would we have known about Trump getting blackmailed by Putin to conceal the fact that he was urinated on by Russian prostitutes if it were not publicized by Evan Perez, Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, and Carl Bernstein at CNN? Now, the unintelligent and logically challenged Trump supporter would lead you to believe that both stories were completely fake, though that may be true, we need to be smarter than that. The facts are the facts; Trump is literally Hitler, and he needs to be stopped. If these stories are a means to ending his racist, sexist, and homosexual/transsexual/bisexual/genderqueer/genderfluid/non-binary/asexual/queer-phobic rhetoric, then so be it. We must display openly in every poetry slam, college classroom, Coffee Café, and independent blog our utmost allegiance to the media instead of needlessly criticizing them in their quest to stop fascism’s rise in the USA.
The future of honest, factual, and intelligently written American Journalism is at stake. We live in desperate times. A time where Nazi trolls on social media are winning with their disgusting rhetoric. Doing things like mocking the BBC’s new Pidgin Section in the most culturally insensitive and racist way. When the media reads the headline, “Indian woman divorce husband because dem no get toilet” on BBC News; they do not see something to laugh at. They do not see a lack of reading/comprehension regarding the English language, or a complete lack of journalistic prowess. What they see is an underrepresented and marginalized people group finally gaining a voice in the mainstream. If the average white American male cannot see this, it’s clear that the problem is not journalism, but instead the lack of cultural relativism in their thought processes, of which, cannot be blamed on the media. The real culprit is an ethnocentric, patriarchal, and nationalistic culture that has preyed on the rest of the world for hundreds of years. Which is precisely the scoop the media is trying to get out.
In The days of Trump’s America, we are plagued with a choice. America can either support the facts presented to you by the honest, intelligent, and unbiased media, or we can support white supremacy, sexism, and Nazism spouting from the anus-shaped lips of our commander-in-chief and the basement dwelling internet trolls poisoning our minds with completely unfunny, and counter factual YouTube videos and memes. This is Trump’s America, fascism has taken root in mainstream America and our media is the last line of defense. It is high time America does the right thing and stops criticizing the media for the greater good of the country.
