Media Declining To Report On Major News Story Unsure Why Americans Going To Alternative Sources For News | Eastern North Carolina Now

    NEW YORK, NY     Several media leaders who have declined to report on major news stories damaging to the Democratic Party gathered in New York to express concern, frustration, and puzzlement over Americans increasingly going to alternative sources for news.

    "I'm not sure what's going on," said MSNBC's Chris Hayes, speaking at the private weekend meeting. "If I decline to cover something, you just have to trust me that I'm doing that for your own good. You don't need to go to Twitter, Substack, or Facebook to find out for yourself. It's concerning."

    Other media anchors, columnists, and journalists echoed Hayes' sentiment. "The Hunter Biden story stunk to high heaven," said a leading Washington Post columnist who chooses to remain anonymous. "So I ignored it. Now, maybe it turns out the laptop was real. But that's something for a journalist to decide months or years later, not for ordinary Americans to look into at the time."

    Several media experts have expressed concern about the implications of Americans going to alternative sources for news. "Dangerous things can happen if we keep heading down this path," said Zuri Waldorf, a media studies professor at Harvard. "People might begin to question media narratives. Some might even develop original thoughts. It's frightening."

    Several attendees at the media summit proposed solutions to the problem of Americans getting their news outside of CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, such as banning Twitter or amending the First Amendment to only include trusted journalistic sources chosen by the Democratic Party.

    At publishing time, the gathered journalists went on to express their concerns on Twitter.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.
