As the mainstream media continues to get faker and faker, NBC News is now not even trying to hide its bias any longer.
NBC starts off its article entitled “Trump’s Ingraham interview conspiracy theory could help him with these 2020 voters,” by calling President Donald Trump’s economy “ailing” and his coronavirus response “bungled.”
I guess NBC does not remember when the president wanted to restrict travel from China in January but the media and top politicians called him racist to even fathom it.
In terms of why the news network believes Trump has favor with white male voters is “his affinity for conspiracy theories — a characteristic so many of his strong supporters share.”
The network also had a hissy fit about QAnon and claims that Trump is a conspiracy rumor spreader and supporter.
“Well I don’t know much about the movement, other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate,” Trump told reporters at his daily White House press conference last month.
The NBC author, Lynn Stuart Parramore writes: “There are an awful lot of white dudes in this club. Looks a bit like white bread dipped in testosterone.”
“All of these theories have potentially dangerous consequences. Rumors of armed antifa interlopers led Americans to congregate in Western towns this summer, armed to the teeth. Coronavirus conspiracies encourage Americans to disobey public health guidance, putting all of us at risk. Back in March, a poll by YouGov and The Economist found that 13 percent of Americans believed the COVID-19 crisis was a hoax — a number, said ethicist Matthew Stanley of Duke University, that could surely help the virus spread.”
NBC then claims that Republicans stick with Trump because he is a conspiracy pusher and the right identifies with that.
The author has the gall to call Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Rush Limbaugh basically nutjobs that want Americans to die from the coronavirus when in all actuality this could not be farther from the truth.
Pointing out health statistics is not a conspiracy, which is all the right-wing TV and radio hosts have done.
“So for men, the magic of conspiracy theories could be their way to restore a lost sense of power, status and solidarity. These narratives, after all, provide appealing consolations. They offer clarity in a time of economic and social confusion. They boost sagging self-esteem with a feeling of being “in the know” and belonging to an elite community,” Parramore states.
Racism is alive, but it seems pretty clear that the majority of racist hate is being thrown at Trump-supporting white males.
