"We on the left know Soros' projects. Many of them are worldwide
efforts to benefit the lesser of us. In fact, he has already given away the bulk
of his personal fortune to charity."Sorry if I'm less then
impressed with your worship of the lizard man. Self serving leftists and their
personal "charities", much like the clintons, always prove to be mostly
self serving and payoff oriented in their power struggle schemes, not to
mention promoting their agendas that have little to do with charity. Besides,
the Koch's (and most rich persons) have their own charities, so it's
not like soros has some corner on the do-gooder ideas."From the
rantings of people like Rush Limbaugh whose whole program is about feeding the
fear of white America"Uhm? Do I detect a hint of racism in Mr.
Conservative's rant and hostile rage against Limbaugh and his listeners and
supporters, of which more then a few are non-white.
From another article in the DN a regular very conservative poster said this
yesterday..."The greatest threat to America is the media.They design and shape:* public opinion* moral
values* styles and fads* nation wide morale * public
temperamentIndividual thinkers are becoming rare."When conservatives start seeing a Free Press as the greatest threat to this
nation, we are surely in dire times. While what he said is basically factual,
we the people decide what media source one wants to listen to. From the
rantings of people like Rush Limbaugh whose whole program is about feeding the
fear of white America, to the rantings of MSNBC and its decidedly left bent,
people have a choice. Any attempt at muzzling choice should send
shock waves. The proposition of the alt-right is to ensure the absolute
unlimited access to weapons to all, and the muzzling of the press, should be a
warning to all - and should be something real conservatives reject. A free
press does more to limit the powers of government - much more than some notion
of an armed militia does.The founding fathers must be rolling in
their graves with the idea of a free press being a threat to the union.
HaHaHaWe on the left know Soros' projects. Many of them are
worldwide efforts to benefit the lesser of us. In fact, he has already given
away the bulk of his personal fortune to charity.Now the Koch
brothers, notorious in their schemes and plots, have financed innumerable
conservative projects that will make the Kochs all the richer. Surely, you on
the right know you are deeply indebted to their many political efforts.I will leave it to any common sensed person to determine which of these
gentlemen stands on higher ground.

I'd like some investment in after some clever editing.Trump
fans are unaware of what's real and fake because fox and talk radio have
been conditioning them for years. My friends who are fans of those outlets are
the most uninformed people I know, the loudest and proudest, uninformed I might
add.They are easy to argue with, because they have no facts, just
"I've heard" or "Their saying" Sad.
"For years, the chairman of Knowledge and Progress Fund has been...Charles
Koch"A perfect example of the tactics of hypocrite fake news
promoters, who apparently only see out of one eye. You can easily follow the
same trail of money going from goergie boy soros, to all his loony leftwing
causes. But with the hypocrites, only one side of the story is newsworthy.
@ Utah Girl ChroniclesSo you've swallowed that explanation? Then
you'll believe about anything the MSM says. The issue you raised of the
recordings being heavily edited had been proven to only shorten the videos
"I am the way, the TRUTH and the light" ~ Jesus ChristThe Prophet

Truth has taken a big hit lately. Our president can't open his mouth or his
cell phone without spewing untruth. By some counts, 6,000 times since he took
office. And the GOP at large has been lying about economics for almost four
decades (tax cuts pay for themselves and wealth will trickle down, for
starters). What concerns me most is that so many of my LDS friends, who purport
to treasure truth and honesty, fall for this nonsense out of sheer tribalism.
GOP does not stand for God's Only Party. Pick your title, but lately
I've liked Greedy Old Party.

@at long last. . . – “The MSM have been distorting and
misrepresenting the facts and truth about the facts for at least
decades.”Then you must be positively incensed by right-wing
media.Granting everything you say about the MSM (for the sake of
argument) it pales in comparison to the nakedly partisan propaganda machine
created on the right.I believe the Right missed a golden opportunity
back in the 90’s. They were not happy with some of the biases going on in
the MSM, but rather than start a network that would challenge those biases and
educate the public about the conservative point of view (which you can still
find in some conservative print media) instead they went full tribal partisan
where truth takes a back seat to win-at-all-costs.Joseph Goebbels
would be proud
"Truth" has always been sort of tribal. For many years
Ptolemy's idea of a flat earth was "true." Anyone who challenged it
risked getting burned at the stake. Today, there are Fox News
truths, Wall Street Journal truths, MSNBC truths, ad infinitum, all in conflict
with each other. Joseph Smith said "Truth is knowledge of things
as they are." Few of us have the humility to step outside our tribal truths
and seek what the Prophet Joseph spoke of.

Let's ask ourselves a couple of questions about journalistic integrity in
light of Ms. Parker's putdown of Project Veritas (PV). 1) How
was ACORN exposed as the phony community service organization that it was? How
many millions of dollars in federal funding did ACORN receive before the outrage
that was sparked by being exposed as fraudulent by PV caused ACORN to fold?2) How was Planned Parenthood's trafficking in aborted baby fetus
tissue and body parts exposed to the world? This business reaches well into the
hundreds of millions of dollars and also receives significant funding from the
federal government, not to mention the emotional and physical harm done to the
women encouraged to go through with the abortions? Again, thank you PV!While Ms. Parker may dislike the political leanings of Project Veritas and all
things related to Trump, and she may disagree with how the reporting was done,
PV has been effective in exposing the hypocrisy and true agenda of the left. And
the Washington Post has been all to eager to go along with the crowd. Agree with
them or not, the Washington Post's lack of vetting the Moore accusers left
the door wide open for Project Veritas.
These are facts, which anybody can verify by looking at the online records of
the IRS:Last year, Project Veritas received $1.7 million in
donations from Donors Trust. In 2015 alone, Donors Trust received
$5.2 million from "Knowledge and Progress Fund Inc.", a tax-exempt
private foundation.For years, the chairman of Knowledge and Progress
Fund has been...Charles Koch.
".... the reportorial staff, which adheres to basic journalism tenets,
including, "park your bias at the door."Not so sure about
that one Kathleen. Let's get Dan Rather's opinion!
It's no secret the Trump Foundation has helped fund Project Veritas.
According to Newsweek on 11/27/2017, "About a month before Trump announced
his candidacy for president, his charity, the Trump Foundation, gave $10,000 to
Project Veritas."For a good read, check out what James
O'Keefe did to CNN's Abbie Boudreau, then ask yourself why Trump
supports O'Keefe's organization. It's all about blurring the
lines between truth and the alternative reality Trump and his supporters prefer
to live in.
If Kathleen Parker believes what she says about journalists being so very
interested in the truth, I have to wonder if she uses logic and observation, or
if she is just a 'believer in the inherent good' of reporters? The
MSM have been distorting and misrepresenting the facts and truth about the facts
for at least decades. It has only become worse in the past decade so that
hardly any critical-thinking citizen can believe anything they say or write. I
personally haven't uncritically accepted a news story since the 'Dewey
defeats Truman' headline. It has become worse now by quantum amounts -
without any remorse shown for incorrect or wildly biased writing and reporting.
For shame. . .
