35 Year Old Song Warns Of Fake News

Posted 11/22/2017

Fake NewsFake NewsConservatives on social media know the depravity of left wing hate. We get inundated with abuse, name calling and accusations. We are called, “racist”, if we have any pro-white message such as the recent, “It’s okay to be white” campaign or question anti-white hate. We get accused of being, “Russian Bots”. But what is a Russian Bot?

Russian bots, if we are to believe main stream media, are paid social media trolls that support a political candidate in the US in attempt at influencing election outcomes or public opinion. Newsweek recently published an article that stated more than half of Trump supporters on social media are Russian Bots. Other main stream media echo this belief as well.

Yet this discounts the true Trump followers, whom are passionate about this amazingly exciting time in which we are taking back our once great nation. We love Trump and believe him to be the answer to our prayers. We believe the President Trump is our last hope for making America, and the world, great again. An aside, if people are in fact getting paid to support Trump on social media, where do I apply?

So let’s examine the main stream media and their vicious and constant, “fake news”. Our main stream media has published so many smears, white lies and blatant untruths that volumes could be written about the subject. I am at a loss for where to start as it has become common knowledge that main stream media promotes fake news as a regular occurrence.  But has it always been this way?

In the Eagle’s song, Dirty Laundry, we examine the dark side of the main stream media. The first verse states, “I make my living off the evening news. Just give me something, something I can use. People love it when you lose. They love dirty laundry”. These media outlets truly do make their money from tragedies and one is to wonder if tragedy is not to be found, will it then be created? Does media truly, “love it when you lose”? It would seem they do not have our best interests at heart. And when the political motivations of sponsors are of utmost importance, spins could be a part of this agenda. How can you be fair and balanced if your sponsors disagree with your politics? Money talks, after all.

In the second verse we evaluate our news anchors. “Well I coulda been an actor but I wound up here. I just have to look good. I don’t have to be clear. Come and whisper in my ear. Give us dirty laundry”, this verse illuminates that our news anchors don’t have to be clear, “or honest”, and alludes to them being unhappy with their life choices and the regret that they, “Coulda been an actor but I wound up here”. This echoes the sentiment of what could have been had they not ventured down this dark and dehumanizing path.

“Kick ‘em when they’re up. Kick ‘em when they’re down. Kick ‘em when they’re up. Kick ‘em all around”, this verse shows the level of abuse that the media is willing to perpetrate on it’s victims, whomever they decide their victim to be.

The song continues to portray media as human shells devoid of compassion or substance intent on harming others, “We got the bubble headed bleached blonde, comes on at five. She can tell you ‘bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye. It’s interesting when people die. Give us dirty laundry”. Could media be this heartless?

And the song gets darker with, “Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet? You know the boys in the newsroom, got a running bet. Get the widow to the set. Give us dirty laundry”. This verse portrays the newsroom boys as heartless death mongers, completely lacking empathy and seeking to exploit true suffering.

Just when you think it can’t get worse the lyrics continue to get darker with, “You don’t really need to find out what’s going on. You don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone. Just leave well enough alone. Eat your dirty laundry”. This verse, I personally find the most telling as it implies that main stream media has no intention, desire or obligation to report the truth.

“Dirty little secrets, dirty little lies, we got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie. We love to cut you down to size. We love dirty laundry”, this verse further explains the love of main stream media for lies and destruction of integrity.

“We can do the innuendo. We can sing and dance. When it’s said and done, we haven’t told you a thing. We all know that crap is king. Give us dirty laundry”, this verse summarizes the song. “Crap is king”, summarizes media and their obsession with, “Fake News”.

How far media has devolved since the writing of this song in 1982, by Don Henley, would blow our minds. Written 35 years ago, this song is more relevant today than ever before.

Yet a new movement of citizen journalism is in effect. With technology and social media, virtually everyone has a smart phone to record events as they actually happen. Citizen journalists, like Laura Loomer and Mike Cernovich, remain ever intent on reporting truth to the people, they are the new wave of news reporting and thus deserve our respect and support as they have no corporate sponsors, but that is precisely why we can trust them.
