Fake News Firehose: Science Proves Media Are Not Making ‘Honest Mistakes’ About Trump
The settled science informs us that the more often you flip a coin, the more likely it is that there will be a 50/50 split of heads to tails. In other words, if you flip a coin 20 times, the probability of achieving a ratio of 8 heads and 12 tails diminishes greatly if you flip it 40 or 60 times. The closer you get to 100 coin flips, the closer you will get to a perfect 50/50 split of heads to tails.
Naturally, in order to achieve this perfect split, in order to conduct the experiment accurately, good faith must be involved. The person flipping the coin must show no bias and no personal investment towards the outcome. The coin-flipper must be interested in only one thing — an outcome that reveals objective truth.
Therefore, through the use of dispassionate science and math, the only conclusion one can come to when observing the national media’s relentless fire-hosing of fake news is that these are not “honest mistakes,” but instead deliberate lies — attempts from a biased and partisan media to destroy President Trump through a propagandistic crusade of calculated disinformation.
What allows us to safely come to this conclusion?
Well, what would you think of a scientist who came to you with a coin-flipping experiment that resulted in 0 heads and 100 tails?
That is easy, you would know the experiment had been rigged, that he is lying. And you would know this because a 0/100 outcome is impossible without a corrupting influence, without a conscious act of bias. Moreover, you would know that an insistence that the experiment was ethical was an attempt to make a fool of you.
And that is what the media believe we are — fools, which is why proven liars, chief among them CNN’s Chris Cillizza, Brian Stelter, David Frum, and Jim Acosta, continue to make the audaciously anti-science argument that, all of the fake news we have seen over the last two years, is the result only of “honest mistakes” from reporters who “work hard to get it right.”
Well, everyone knows that honest mistakes are like coin flips. The more honest mistakes one makes, the more the ratio of those mistakes will end up 50/50.
So, if 100 honest mistakes are made in reports about Trump, we should see something very close to a 50/50 split in these reports. Half of these honest mistakes will get it wrong to Trump’s benefit; the other half will be damaging to Trump. Meaning…
For every piece of MSM fake news that is unfair to Trump, we should see a piece of MSM fake news that is too soft on Trump, that gives him too much benefit of the doubt, that clears him of wrongdoing prematurely, soft-pedal his mistakes, or overestimates his popularity, crowd size, and political victories.
Just as an honest and unbiased scientist interested only in an outcome of objective truth will achieve a 50/50 split, so too would honest and unbiased journalists interested only in an outcome of objective truth.
But that is not what we are seeing from our national media, and already we are way, way, way beyond 100 coin flips. In just the last 10 days, the national media have been caught red-handed telling no fewer than 11 consequential lies. And…
Every honest mistake comes up tails for Trump.
It is just a fact that coin flips and honest mistakes do not fall like this — and anyone who argues otherwise is either a liar or a science denier.
Furthermore, recent history is achingly clear in informing us that these are not “honest mistakes,” because this never happened to Barack Obama. We never saw anything even close to this unrelenting assumption of the worst when it came to Bill Ayers’s pal.
Whether it was the IRS abuses against conservatives, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Veterans Administration death list, the Solyndra subsidies, the DOJ refusing to prosecute the Black Panthers, the wiretapping of Trump’s campaign, Hillary’s secret email account, spying on journalists, Bowe Bergdahl, or the EPA polluting the Colorado River — the media did everything in their power to make it comes up heads for their Precious Barry.
Everything the media could do to downplay Barry’s scandals, to give him the widest benefit of the doubt, to dismiss and move on, was done, even by a CNN staffer during a consequential presidential debate.
For Obama the media always made it come up heads.
For Trump, it is always tails.
If you believe in science, math, and history, the only conclusion you can come to is that these not honest mistakes; rather, these are deliberate and calculated lies told by deliberate and calculating liars.
