Modern Day Heroes: Kari Lake, Daniel Thompson, Myanmar Journalists

Earning Admiration and Respect (pt. 2)

Along with exposing lies, corruption and hypocrisy on this website, I also think it’s necessary to address the opposite side of the spectrum. The people who stand up for what they believe in, who tell the truth, and who truly care about people.

We can’t forget that there are still people doing the right thing, and that they are fighting for the good of the world.

This second part of this series takes a look at three people/groups that deserve incredible recognition for their integrity and moral ethics, and the bravery and steadfast resolution to stand up for their beliefs and values, even in the midst of extreme adverse establishments. Their belief into upholding honorable conduct in light of bringing truth and news to the public compelled them to quit their job in journalism when it became clear that the industry is more interested in reporting negativity, controversy, and outright lies – or, hiding the truth altogether.

Thank you to the following people for having the courage to speak out on this egregious agenda.

1. Kari Lake (Fox 10 Phoenix News Anchor)

You can also check out Kari Lake’s personal tweet announcing her resignation (showing the same video as above) here, as well as showing tons of supportive comments. Thank goodness there are people who realize what the news media establishments are up to, and that there are people like Kari Lake and others that have had enough and refuse to be a part of it any longer.

A common theme, throughout most of the controversy surrounding media journalism, is the left and right dichotomy that is pervading the United States.

As Kari Lake illuminates, Sadly, journalism has changed a lot since I first stepped into a newsroom, and I’ll be honest, I don’t like the direction its going. The media needs more balance in coverage and a wider range of viewpoints represented in every newsroom at every level and at each position.

Kari went on, stating: “In the past few years, I haven’t felt proud to be a member of the media. I’m sure there are other journalists out there who feel the same way. I found myself reading news copy that I didn’t believe was fully truthful, or only told part of the story.

And I began to feel that I was contributing to the fear and division in this country by continuing on in this profession.

An event in 2019 between the Fox 10 Phoenix News station and Kari Lake’s reference to Parler on her Twitter account caused backlash as the station urged Kari to remove her connection with Parler. Since Parler is accused of being a “far-right” haven, of course anyone in the msm can’t have anyone with even the most miniscule connection to it. Understandably, this upset Kari and she was caught on video expressing her frustration at this obvious sign of suppressing people’s individuality and differing points of views. It may have been this, as well as other injustices like it, that ultimately culminated and led to the emmy-award winner resigning.

Local News Anchor Demonized Merely for Joining Parler

Kari Lake has been a news anchor for Fox 10 for over 20 years, and in so doing earned the number-one spot alongside her co-host several times. Those are very large shoes to fill, and I can only hope that the “replacement” that Fox hires holds themselves to the same high degree that Kari herself has shown by refusing to participate with corrupt media reporting. But with all the “yes-people” willing to sell their own soul for money and/or fame, we can only hope that more and more people wake up to what’s been going on and finally realize that the news is meant to manipulate and control what people think; and I hope more in this field will follow in Kari Lake’s footsteps and do what’s right for humanity.

Thank you Kari for taking a stand and leaving this twisted corporate mentality.

2. Daniel Thompson (Former Editor from the Kenosha News)

Daniel Thompson shows the huge heart and compassion he has, not only for the family of Jacob Blake, a man who was shot 7 times by police, but also that of his whole community – and thereby the whole world.

The details surrounding the shooting is unclear (although you can hear a recount from Jacob Blake himself, here) as is usually what happens when dishonest, biased media reports and news stations are on the loose and geared to swaying public opinion. But the detrimental effect of this mass media manipulation of the public became a front-row seat for Mr. Thompson, who was actually at one of the rallies honoring Jacob Blake.

After witnessing many heartwarming speeches from people calling for peaceful protests and unity, including from Jacob Blake’s own father, Daniel Thompson was dismayed to see the one headline his own news platform decided to run with: “WATCH NOW: Kenosha Speaker: ‘If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.” The Kenosha News media decided to highlight the ONE speech that an unknown speaker made, literally “inciting violence” as the main take away from the otherwise beautiful and touching rally.

It was this blatant attempt at influencing people’s thoughts to the side of division and negativity instead of showing the main message of peace and love that struck a chord with Thompson and spurred him to take the matter up with the Kenosha News Executive Editor Bob Heisse.

“Thompson said he messaged Kenosha News Executive Editor Bob Heisse to strongly express that the headline needed to be changed. According to a text message exchange from Saturday that Thompson posted on Facebook, Heisse at the paper urged him to “calm down” citing the quote as a “threat and an exact quote” that was “totally on message with the rally.”

Thompson later resigned, saying the headline did not reflect the otherwise peaceful message from Saturday’s rally.

“I have officially resigned from the Kenosha News effective immediately because of this headline and response from my boss,” Thompson wrote. “I can stand for being unemployed. I cannot stand for this.”

“Today is not my day, I did what I did because today is about Jacob Blake and his family, it’s about moving forward together peacefully and I saw that today,” Thompson said in a video he posted on Facebook over the weekend. “And that headline did not reflect it. And when they refused to change it, I quit.”

Kenosha News Editor Resigns Over ‘Damaging’ Jacob Blake Headline

This is absolutely beautiful and amazing that Daniel Thompson was so touched by what he saw at the rally, so much so that when his own news platform depicted (and highlighted) the one mar throughout the whole event, it stirred him to quit when they wouldn’t change the headline to encompass what really happened. And even though the speech of revenge and negativity did happen and should be reported on as well, it should not have been the main focus of the rally.

After Daniel Thompson quit, the Kenosha News platform did indeed change the headline to “WATCH NOW: Kenosha speaker strays from message at rally” It’s so sad that it took an honest, morally ethic journalist to quit before a change for the better could be made.

Thank you so much to Daniel, for being one of the few brave ones to stick to your values and care enough about fellow people to do so.

3. Myanmar Members and Journalists from the Myanmar Press Council and The Myanmar Times

The rights of personal freedom and even our own opinions are being infringed upon and is under attack.

In stark contrast to the events that unfolded before Daniel Thompson’s eyes of unity and peace, and an effort of his publication to highlight the hostility of one person, Myanmar is doing the exact opposite – instructing the journalists and reporters to avoid certain words like “coup” or “regime” that would paint the Myanmar military in a negative light, and instead use terms such as “transfer of power” and “chair of the State Administrative Council”; deliberately taking away the rights of the journalists to give an honest account of what’s really happening.

In addition to that, there is also the push for a “cyber bill” that will allow the military to arrest individuals for going against the narrative of the establishment, and give them the ability to block access to certain websites.

The Myanmar Press Council last week had condemned the draft cyber bill that would give the military access to user data and the power to block websites and jail critics.  In its statement, the press council called the law unconstitutional and said it would obstruct journalists’ ability to report.
Myanmar Press Council Members Resign Over Military Directives    

Due to these outrageous efforts, according to this article “Myanmar Journalists Leave Jobs in Face of Military Regime Restrictions on Media Freedom, eleven members of the Myanmar Press Council and more than a dozen journalists and The Myanmar Times left their jobs in the face of new restrictions by the military regime that threaten media freedom.

While it is commendable that these individuals refuse to be a part of this oppressive “transfer of power”, and I applaud them for their integrity to do so – it sets a dangerous precedent, since if all of the honest, morally ethical journalists are leaving these establishments, it leaves the news platforms wide-open to hiring only “yes-people” who will fall in line no matter what rules they enforce.

And this, I surmise, is exactly their plan. The msm and news platforms only want “journalists” who will read out from a script and mislead the public stance on whatever they dictate. They don’t want people who can think for themselves and they don’t want ethically honest individuals because that will conflict with their extremely biased narratives.

This agenda is extremely important to realize so that people around the world will understand that the news has been compromised and corrupted to suit only those who would benefit from the reports. (Hint: it’s not the average citizen.) And in so doing, REFUSE to watch these one-sided, obviously tainted messages – or at least, watch it with a discerning eye and realize that most of these establishments are pushing an agenda, and be wise enough to spot it.

The brave members at Myanmar Press Council and the journalists at The Myanmar Times who have quit their positions in light of this dictatorship, deserve recognition and accolades for exemplifying truth and integrity in refusing to participate in their tyrannical scheme.

Regardless of one’s political affiliation, the fact that there is clearly a biased agenda unfolding before our eyes, has thankfully reached these journalists; and also with large thanks, they have the courage to announce it and leave this oppressive regime, even at the cost of their career and reputation.

They are brave, concerned citizens reaching out to the population to open their eyes and look at the bigger picture of what’s going on.

These are the people who deserve respect and esteemed recognition. Not corrupt government officials or the media giants or celebrities who peddle around the same narrative over and over to coerce (and threaten and demoralize) anyone who doesn’t fall in line; and certainly not all the yes-people that simply follow the narrative even though they know it’s wrong.

I want to give a personal, heartfelt thank you to everyone standing up for these injustices and corruption, and having the conscious fortitude to stay strong even in the line of what seems to be the majority and risking ridicule and scorn from the immoral establishment.

I also want to give thanks and credit to the following links for covering these subjects in detail, and give them high accolades for not shying away from these topics even though the msm and social media giants have attacked anyone who has dared to go against their own biased “news reporting”.

(Although there are many independent websites, bloggers, reporters etc. who are addressing these matters, the below links are what is covered in this post and who are repeatedly covering this important information to unravel these controversial events. Thank you to every website who is offering honest and upfront material instead of spreading the propaganda and biased narrative of the msm and their partners.)

Thank you for your reporting and coverage!

If you know of others who are deserving of some recognition for their honesty, kindness, bravery, etc., please contact me and let me know who you’d like me to feature. It can range from anything from compassionate teachers, to whistleblowing doctors/nurses, to honest journalists, and beyond. I’d like to highlight more people who have integrity and are doing the right thing, than to just focus on the corruption and negativity of others.

We have role models in this world, and they deserve to be seen and heard.

Thank you so much, and please share.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Comparing CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and FOX

Nothing suspicious to see here…

Just like the title says, this post aims to look at each of these US mainstream news outlets (their website – not their TV channels – I don’t watch TV – and I advise you to not watch television as well…) to compare with each other and see how deep and far the propaganda goes.

I never regularly visit these websites (and certainly not their homepage) and the only times that I even visit their site is to check out a related news article to what I’m looking up. I regularly clear “cookies” and website/search history, so I’m hoping these have no bearings on my findings.

First, I am capturing a screenshot of whatever first pops up on each of the website, and taking it from there.

So let’s get started.

CNN

Screenshot taken from cnn.com.

NBC

Screenshot taken from nbcnews.com.

ABC

Screenshot taken from abcnews.go.com.

MSNBC

Screenshot taken from msnbc.com.

FOX

Screenshot taken from foxnews.com.

(All screenshots were taken on 1/3/2021 between 10:00-10:30 A.M.)

Just taking a glance at some of these headlines literally gives me anxiety and I can feel stress levels start to arise. Thankfully, I can recognize when this is happening (and why it’s happening) which is why I always stress (no pun intended) to be aware of your surroundings and your own thoughts and emotions. Since I already know how these news outlets work and how they’re geared for the sole purpose of manipulating and controlling the public, and instilling fear and negativity, there’s something to be said for how these news outlets work on others who aren’t aware of this agenda.

And while NBC and MSNBC are among the same company, I wanted to show them as two separate entities. (And just as a heads up, even checking out PBS and CBS show similar results to the ones above.)

Now below, I’ve created pie charts to show what the majority of “news” they have to “inform” us are (at least according to the very first impression we get upon visiting their webpage) :

Now, I admit, since we’re heading off into the electoral vote (which allegedly is supposed to mean something and we should definitely not think there’s anything corrupt going on with our government and should instead trust them blindly that there was no election fraud (or any other corruption, for that matter…..)) the results of this finding is bound to be skewed towards that of politics specifically. Which is why I’ve already decided that once all of these politics sort of quiet down and things are finalized once and for all, I will re-visit this post and do an updated version of what these same news channels cover. Just to see how much has changed and what they choose to focus on next.

Next, I want to see what kind of biased/descriptive terminology we can see from these websites.

Let it be noted, first and foremost. I am not above this. I admit it outright. I will sometimes use certain adjectives to describe and reveal my frustration and thoughts on certain matters. But while I am an independent writer not affiliated with any mainstream news media, my opinions are based on several different outlets and sources. It is not labeled as a “news” platform, and these should be based on facts and honest reporting. As it is, what you will find at this site is honest findings and my personal views on the matter. Not paid promotion or propaganda, unlike the very obvious (there’s one) agendas of the msm.

CNN’s favorite words

So just looking at the very first link of the CNN screenshot from above, we can see the term “conspiracy theories” that a lot of people like to use in order to discredit any kind of alternative source to what the main narrative is pushing for. Never mind the fact that numerous esteemed doctors and health/science experts don’t agree with the main narrative; yet, if we are to believe the government endorsed agencies on what “experts” mean, it seems to only apply to those who are in agreement with whatever “information” the government and msm is presenting to the public. Anyone else who raises speculative and alternative theories (even based on facts and studies) are immediately “debunked” and ostracized.

This second post from cnn.com (retitled as “Republican efforts to undermine Biden victory expose growing anti-democratic streak”) is filled with even more biased and opinionated views (labeled as an “analysis”) – written in a way to ridicule anyone who thinks otherwise: “scattershot, exploit, manufactured, conspiracy theory (again), charade, etc., etc., etc.” Keep in mind, these were just the top two links that were available on their page.
Let’s take a look at what NBC offers.

Trump throws grenades into high-stakes Georgia Senate runoffs in final stretch – “Outgoing President Donald Trump is throwing one rhetorical grenade after another into the high-stakes Georgia Senate runoffs in the final days before the Tuesday election.

(Phew! I’m glad they added that it was “rhetorical grenades”. With the news media reporting lately, sometimes I wonder if they literally want people to think Trump is throwing actual live grenades…)

In this article, apparently “grenades” actually means “false” allegations into election fraud. The terms “false” and “falsely“, I realize, is used a lot in the mainstream media and social media platforms in order to describe the “alleged” presidential election fraud. (And whatever else they deem as “fake news”.)

Let’s see what the next articles says:

Fauci pushes back on Trump: Covid death numbers are ‘real’ – “Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday pushed back on President Donald Trump’s false claims that the U.S. coronavirus death toll is “exaggerated.

Well, that was fast. Two articles, back to back? Both focused on alleged “false” news? Reminds me of CNN with their usage of “conspiracy theories”.

Another word used in this article that is everywhere in order to manipulate the public, is “misinformation“. Who decides if something is “false” and who “fact checks” and labels something as “misinformation”? None other than the propagators of this whole agenda. Why do some people still continue to believe them? Perhaps because they were raised and conditioned to believe these sources, neglecting to realize that it has now become a front to indoctrinate the masses.

More buzzwords from ABC

‘There’s no running away from the numbers:’ Fauci laments surging COVID deaths as Trump claims ‘fake news’ – “Fauci’s comments came minutes after President Donald Trump misleadingly claimed in a tweet that the numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of infected persons and deaths in the country are “exaggerated,

I am not going to go into the inconsistencies of the covid reports/cases, etc. – because, indeed, there is so much misinformation surrounding this subject, and I encourage you to investigate for yourself and use several different outlets to come to an educated theory. This is not the post for that. Just to show you the ways that these news outlets lead (mislead) someone into believing a certain narrative.

Here is another article (keeping in line with the politics/covid topics) that is written to, again, mislead the reader into what to believe (and not to believe):

Congress opens new session as virus, Biden’s win dominate – “It’s often said that divided government can be a time for legislative compromises, but lawmakers are charging into the 117th Congress with the nation more torn than ever, disputing even basic facts including that Biden won the presidential election.

Fraud did not spoil the 2020 presidential election, a fact confirmed by election officials across the country.

Funny. I thought “facts” are confirmed by truth and evidence, not by election officials. But you learn something new everyday…

MSNBC’s point of view

Most of the articles on this site is linked to a video, which I am not going to watch, but here is the only written article that I can present, with, again, their own allegation of no proof in the supposed election fraud that occurred.

Trump allies shouldn’t be sworn into office until cleared of their own claims of election fraud – “But this time, some GOP members if Congress have indicated they will object — or are considering objecting — to counting the electoral votes from key battleground states, claiming without proof that there was widespread voter irregularities or fraud that renders the election results illegitimate.

It seriously makes me wonder what they would consider as “proof“.

There is also this at the very end of the same article: “Any other result will undermine the public’s confidence in our election process — which is already dangerously under attack by Trump and his comrades in arms.

“Dangerously under attack”? “Comrades in arms”? I hope this is another rhetorical allegory and not implying more grenades…

Fox’s outlook

That brings me to the last major news media on this list. Let’s check out a couple of their articles to see if we can find some interesting correlations like the ones above.

From actively trying to look at all of these news sites with an unbiased view and deliberately trying to find leading content, the main article from the above screenshot: GOP senators want election commission similar to what decided disputed 1876 race seems to just depict straight-forward reporting. (At least at the time of its last update.)

Keeping in line with the above method, let’s take a look at one more article. (Note: I did not cherry-pick any of the articles. I picked the main story of each page, and made sure that one article dealt with a political angle, and one with a covid/vaccine angle. Just to keep all of them fair and similar. Since there are no articles dealing with the covid situation on FOX’s screenshot, I have chosen to look at the very next written article I see on this page.)

Cruz says Supreme Court ‘better forum’ for election disputes amid Electoral College objection push – The only thing I can find on this article would be the following sentence: “Evidence of any widespread voter fraud that could have changed the outcome of the election, however, has been lacking.” – But then we see it following up with this sentence: “Former Attorney General William Barr declared that to be the case weeks after the election“. This is not contested, and these are facts. The fact that, yes, William Barr did indeed say that.

But when we take this particular sentence and actually analyze it, it’s interesting that it has to specify that “Evidence (which certain individuals can certainly avoid simply by labeling it as “not evidence enough” or “not proof”) of any widespread voter fraud that could have changed the outcome of the election, however, has been lacking” … Needless to say, his choice of words is extremely strange and lends credence to the idea that although voter fraud, does, in fact exist, it is not “sufficient” enough in his findings to make a difference.

(I think a lot of us are underestimating (or in complete denial about) the amount of corruption, bribery and/or threats that are coerced upon those in a high position that would make these decisions… But I digress.)

The Verdict

So here was a quick rundown of 5 news outlets and the initial findings of how they can manipulate and coerce their reader into a certain way of thinking. This was just the written findings that were on the front page of their website, and did not even touch upon the videos and their verbal dialogue with each other and those with opposing points of views. We didn’t get to see body language and voice inflections, condescension or aversion towards different ideologies. I can only imagine what kind of impressions I would get from watching the videos. (Perhaps that will be another post for a different day as well.)

And from the two articles from FOX, it seems as if this has been the least manipulative/(mis)leading source of the 5 different news outlets covered.

Honestly, I find it fascinating that what is labeled as “news” is nothing more than highly partisan perspectives constantly bombarding the viewers/readers in most cases. And, by looking at just the few articles and topics from their website, we can see a lot of negativity and propaganda.

While being informed is important, we have to realize that the definition of “informed” is:

in·formed
adj.
1. Possessing, displaying, or based on reliable information: informed sources; an informed opinion.
2. Knowledgeable; educated: the informed consumer.

thefreedictionary.com/informed

SYNONYMS:
commonsense, commonsensible, commonsensical, firm, good, hard, just, justified, levelheaded, logical, rational, reasonable, reasoned, sensible, sober, solid, valid, well-founded

merriam-webster.com/dictionary/informed

It doesn’t mean to believe biased sources based on opinionated points of views and alleged “facts” that haven’t been verified (or have been verified and are just labeled “disputed” by those very same propagators…).

When it comes to being informed, we have to use our best judgement and discernment and realize that the goal of some of these individuals and corporations is to literally control the masses. What better way to inundate them than with disinformation disguised as “news”?

We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.
– William Casey, CIA Director 1981-1987

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
