Anyone with an ounce of common sense and a 6th grade education realizes that NBC, CBS, and ABC are not reliable, truthful sources of the news today. Add to these the liberal cable stations, like CNN, MSNBC, etc. These “news” outlets are not news outlets at all. They are electronic spewers of elitist propaganda editorials, posing as news outlets.
Even Fox News has slipped down this path. Last Sunday (February 15), Chris Wallace assembled a panel of four commentators on the issue of the conservatives’ efforts to pass HR240, which fully funds the Department of Homeland Security, but prevents Obama from using DHS funds to implement his illegal executive amnesty. All four of the panelists, including the alleged conservative George Will, said the conservatives should capitulate to Obama and fund illegal amnesty. Wallace was apparently unable to find even one commentator who agreed with the majority of the House of Representatives who passed HR240 to place on the panel and express the House majority viewpoint. Amazing.
Network news shows have become a combination of a weather station and Hollywood reporter. Of each 30 minute broadcast, 12 minutes is spent selling products through commercials, 8 minutes is spent telling the viewers about the weather, 7 minutes reporting what’s new in the entertainment industry, and the remaining 3 minutes is spent presenting their slanted version of actual news of world events.
So where to go for real news? Here’s a list, in no particular order, with links, and some short comments:
1. Frontpage Magazine. http://www.frontpagemag.com/ A digital newsmagazine run by David Horowitz, an activist, author and former communist who has seen the light. There you will find articles written by some of the top experts in all areas of the news.
2. Breitbart. http://www.breitbart.com/ Another digital news source from the conservative point of view.
3. Victor Davis Hanson Private Papers. http://victorhanson.com/wordpress/ hanson, a classicist professor and author of numerous books, is a military and foreign policy expert. He also runs articles by Bruce Thornton, another foreign policy expert, and Raymond Ibrahim, a mid east expert.
4. National Review. http://www.nationalreview.com/ Another digital journal, this one tends to the RINO side of Republican politics, but many times contains very good conservative articles.
5. CNS. Conservative News Service. http://www.cnsnews.com/ Good hard news source without the weather and without the Hollywood crapola.
6. PBS Newshour. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/ Yes, PBS. Although extremely slanted to the left, they actually cover 5 times more hard news than the three major networks. If you can stand the left perspective without vomiting, and the constant promotion of the global warming hoax crap, just read between the lines and you might learn something.
7. For research on left groups, try Discover the Networks. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/ Another Horowitz effort, it is an excellent resource to enable one to connect the dots between the myriad left groups and their money sources.
8. Mark Levin’s Daily Recap. http://www.marklevinshow.com/dailyrecap Levin is a constitutional law expert and a talk radio host, as well as the author of several excellent books directed at restoring our republic.
9. Conservative Review. https://www.conservativereview.com/user/marketing-page-2?utm_source=mark… This site provides excellent information and ratings of politicians.
10. Washington Times. http://www.washingtontimes.com/ This digital newspaper also publishes a hard copy. Indispensable source of real national and international news.
11. Fox News. http://www.foxnews.com/ Dodge the Hollywood crap, and you can still get good news stories.
12. The Intercept. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/features/ A digital news journal started by Glenn Greenwald, the reporter for the Guardian who broke the Edward Snowden story about the massive NSA spying on Americans.
