How come the mainstream media is giving most of its attention to a handful of gun control activists out of the nearly 2900 students who attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School?
You’d think that mainstream reporters would be interviewing as many students as they can who were present at the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Fla., but no: the current media coverage is revolving around a group of teenage gun control advocates.
This coverage, spearheaded by CNN, reveals that the mainstream media is not “unbiased and objective” as it claims to be but is instead pushing an anti-gun agenda.
And this presents a problem to you, the audience. Instead of simply presenting you the facts so you can make your own, informed opinion, mainstream pundits would rather you just stop thinking and do what they say.
Just look at this tweet from CNN, for example:

How is that objective reporting? It’s not: it’s activism.
And if you call out the media for such slanted “reporting,” you’re demonized. You see, you’re a threat to the power structure if you think for yourself.
“After Watergate, few would have predicted today’s dynamic in which some journalists view their job not as questioning the powers that be, but undermining those who report on the powers that be,” once wrote Sharyl Attkisson, a former investigative journalist.
It’s easier to understand once you see the mainstream media as the propaganda arm of the ruling class, which operates through an interconnected network of academia, technology, entertainment, bureaucracies and, of course, media.
That’s why you’ll often see the same agenda – whether it’s “global warming” or gun control – pushed in unison by academics, Hollywood directors and news reporters.
But blind faith in authority is the greatest threat to truth – and your freedoms.
“The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority,” wrote the English author A.A. Milne. “A second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority.”
“A first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.”
