This is not journalism — this is cheerleading. Of course, you’d expect nothing less from CNN’s weird eunuch potato.

Brian Stelter had Elaine Godfrey of The Atlantic on his ironically-named show “Reliable Sources” to discuss the new framing of Republicans as “election deniers” in the Regime Media that didn’t do the same to Al Gore in 2000, Hillary Clinton in 2016, or, at the state level, Stacey Abrams in 2018.

Godfrey says that she doesn’t really pull punches with what she calls people who are skeptical that the twice-failed Presidential candidate and Shambling Husk of Mediocrity that appears to be showing signs of cognitive decline received a historic 81 million votes in the midst of a pandemic while hiding in his basement when laws were changed in Democrat-led swing states to allow millions of ballots to float around with little oversight and no chain of custody controls. She did leave out some of that detail, but she said that she calls people who disagree that Biden won legitimately “liars” and “election deniers” which is (likely) intended to invoke the same revulsion to them as to people who deny the Holocaust.

During the clip, the smarmy and smug Stelter says, “being clear about the threat to democracy is one of the most important things journalists” can report.

Stelter then turns to Lauren Wright, a Penn State lecturer on PoliSci, who says that it’s important for journalists to report on this just in case the “threat to democracy” Donald J. Trump decides to run in 2024.

Oh, really?

Hypothetically, what if a guy from, say… a laptop repair shop in Delaware, provided the FBI with evidence of influence peddling between the former Vice President’s crack-smoking, amateur porn-filming, prostitute-procuring son and foreign entities for ungodly amounts of cash while he shared bank accounts with his father, and that former Vice President decided to run for President? Would that be a threat to democracy and perhaps worth a couple of minutes of media coverage?

According to Brian Stelter, that wasn’t credible news and should be dismissed as a conservative disinformation campaign.

At a conference on “disinformation,” Stelter said that the Regime Media didn’t cover the Hunter Biden laptop because they couldn’t verifiy it.

Ah, yes. Media outlets wouldn’t ever report on something with scant evidence, would they?

Stelter, who said that when the Regime Media make mistakes, they admit it — hasn’t admitted that the information from Hunter Biden’s laptop has been verified as authentic.

College Freshman Christopher Phillips called out CNN’s weird eunuch potato at that same conference for the things that he got wrong and has yet to admit let alone apologize for.

It’s good to see that there are young people that can see through the manure that the Regime Media spreads.

A former NY Times journalist, Kenneth Timmerman, ran an interesting piece in the New York Post on Saturday about the day when he realized that journalism in America was dead.

(I know that this seems to be irrelevant to this article, but go with me on this.)

Timmerman said it was when he was fired from Time magazine for a story that angered the Democrats in power at the time. His article, which was scheduled to run in mid-July 1994, was exposing the Chinese government’s efforts to purchase sensitive military production gear from US weapons plants “seemingly with the benediction — or at least, a blind eye — from Clinton administration officials.”

He was able to run the story a year later in the American Spectator, a conservative magazine under the title, “China Shops.” Later,  McDonnell Douglas was indicted for export violations, and the Clinton administration was investigated for selling off U.S. military tech to China.

Five bucks says that Brian Stelter would’ve dismissed that as part of the “vast, right-wing conspiracy” as well.

Timmerman concluded:

Time’s editors showed in July 1994 that they believed their job was not to uncover the truth but to provide political cover to Democrats in Washington. It’s only gotten worse since then, but I believe this incident formally marks the end of the “mainstream media” as we once knew it. Like many other countries in Europe and elsewhere, we now have a politicized media in the United States. But unlike other countries, in all but a few cases our media refuses to acknowledge its ideological affiliation. So added to bias, you have hypocrisy.

It sounds like he’s describing Brian Stelter’s show.

The media is corrupt and far too many of them are either in denial or, as seems to be the case with Stelter, outright lying that they’re objective journalists.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
