“Motivate that kind of conspiracy” … Yesterday over 300 papers participated in a collaborated effort started by the Boston World to assault President Trump for his antagonistic mindset to the press. The normal subjects in the blue-check mafia like CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta, et al. loved the coordinated effort. Some in the media– consisting of some surprises– believed the effort would harm, not assist their standing with the public.Two left-wing California newspapers, the L.A. Times and the San Fransisco Chronicle, both chosen against taking part in the effort. Not because they support President Trump, but since they treasure a totally free and independent press.The Los Angeles Times editorial board does not speak for the New York Times or for the Boston World or the Chicago Tribune or the Denver Post. We share specific viewpoints with those newspapers; we disagree on other things. Even when we do agree with another editorial page– on the capital punishment or climate change or war in Afghanistan, state– we reach our own decisions and positions after careful consultation and consideration among ourselves, then we write our own editorials. We would not wish to leave the impression that we take our lead from others, or that we participate in groupthink.The president himself currently treats the media as a cabal–“
opponents of the individuals,”he has actually called us, suggesting over and over that we’re in cahoots to do harm to the country. The idea of signing up with together to oppose him appears practically to encourage that type of conspiracy thinking by the president and his patriots. Why provide ammo to shriek about”collusion”? We mean no disrespect to those who have chosen to compose on this important subject today. However we will continue to discuss the problem on our own schedule.These two papers and the others who didn’t join the” groupthink,”as the Times called it, did more for their integrity and to increase the general public trust in their outlets than the hundreds of documents who decided to take cumulative action versus the president.These outlets hit it right on the head. To a big number of Americans, the action taken by these newspapers given off collusion, appeared like collusion, and was in
fact collusion. The way to battle the perception that your market is one big”cabal “is not to imitate one huge”cabal.”Let’s BATTLE BACK together … … against the mainstream media’s biased reporting, selective realities, and straight-out propaganda. Register now for the day-to-day dosage of sunlight you need to disinfect the media’s lies.
