Who Determines What We Are ‘Entitled’ to Know? Why?

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

As more layers of the onion that is the American election process are unpeeled, more questions beg to be asked.  We are learning that Big Tech deliberately and forcefully blocked content that they deemed “unverified” concerning, inter alia, the vile corruption of the man and family who would become the president.  The laptop that Joe Biden’s errant son dropped off for repair and never picked up had information on it which would have changed many minds.  Good folks would have either voted for Biden’s opponent or simply not voted at all.  A couple of serious studies have looked at this and confirmed it.

The laptop exposed the long years and instances of pay-for-play by the then-Senator and later Vice President who has now become President Joe Biden.  The details concerning large sums of hard cash from the Chinese Communist government in exchange for “access” and of course, unmentioned, “influence” would have rightly soured the minds of many good Americans on the Bidens’ corruption and fraud.

Yet, somehow, only one brave American newspaper, the venerable “New York Post,” had the guts to write about the laptop and its contents.  Had something similar turned up detailing nefarious activities concerning Biden’s opponent, is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that the media, en masse, would not have blared it non-stop?  Why did they not do so here?  Who has this much influence over what we may know and what must be hidden from us hoi polloi?  Is it that the folks in Silicon Valley and at The New York Times and the major networks have better, more sophisticated brains and viewpoints than you or I?  Or that somehow, we are less able to stand the truth?

The biggest sin of Big Lib Media has always been the half truth rather than the outright lie. Libs are fond of claiming democracy dies in darkness, but they are always the worst offenders when it comes to keeping unwanted information away from the public.

The New Slimes got a pulitzer for covering up for Stalin.

Things haven't changed.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

Outright lies work just find if the listener wants them to be true.  For these folks it's best to not look too closely at them.  Usually it's because they're too invested in the results.  There's one born every minute.

Media can hook the public with a half true story. Some poor unfortunate who's not doing well while corporations are getting huge tax breaks.
They leave out that maybe the poor unfortunate made their bed and won't get a job skill or move to some place where there are jobs.
They often leave out the other half of the story. As in the Floyd case. Floyd was a thug most of his life, committed a crime, resisted arrest, and had a dangerous drug in his system combined with a very bad heart. That part was mostly ignored by the media who prefer to focus on a story of a possibly racist cop who just wanted to kill a black person for no reason whatsoever.
There is never any mention by the media of the fact that a cop is 18 times more likely to be killed by a black thug than vice versa.

ALL lies are wrapped in truth, that they are made believable. That does not make them half-truths. They are still lies.
