Letter: The mainstream media are the real liars

"Which networks are the most untruthful?" asks Walcott, N.D. resident Darlan Fatland. "I could list many other stories where these networks and major newspapers like the New York Times falsely try to convince their viewers of individuals being guilty of committing rape or other serious crimes. Fox News makes mistakes but they are angels compared to the other lying hypocrite networks."

Letter to the editor FSA

Roger Haglund's Nov. 23 letter to the editor has it wrong.

It is the other major networks that lie, cover up or won't cover stories of the Democrats' misconduct and corruption. They lie about police shootings as well as the stories about Kyle Rittenhouse and Nick Sandmann, claiming Rittenhouse was guilty of murder and Sandmann was abusing an innocent Native American man.

They will lie about the police shooting a Black man that has committed a crime or is wanted for crimes. They falsely claim the victim is innocent, unarmed and a pillar of the community. They do this no mater what the evidence is.

They lie, cover up or won't cover the stories of the sexual abuse by former President Bill Clinton, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and President Joe Biden. The Democrat politicians are afraid to tell the truth to their addled brained voters because they will lose their votes.

They continue to do this in so many other stories like the false claims of collusion between former President Donald Trump and Russia. The corruption committed by Biden and his son Hunter along with Hillary Clinton. They have been after Trump even before he announced his candidacy. They all laughed and thought it preposterous when Ann Coulter said Trump would be the candidate. So much for those brilliant minds.


They took Christine Blasey Ford's word as gospel and judged Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh guilty no mater what the other testimony said. They incessantly say the exact same words as their counterparts say. They all jump onto the next story and twist and lie to keep their sheep in the fold.

Now I will give Tony Bender a back-handed compliment. It was good to see him use some common sense , no mater how hard it was for him. There wasn't any other conclusion but innocent in the Rittenhouse case.

I want you to visualize this scenario. A Black man was accused and found innocent of raping and killing a young girl. Riots erupted and stores and vehicles were looted and burned. The protesters were joined by members of the Ku Klux Klan. Two Black youths were asked to help defend a friend's business. While doing this they were confronted by the mob. They were verbally abused, threatened with their lives and attacked. They defended themselves and were chased by several law-violating thugs. They shot three of them in self defense.

Now Fox News would be wrong to claim them guilty of murdering or trying to murder the three individuals. But that is what several major networks and talk shows falsely claimed Rittenhouse was guilty of.

So which networks are the most untruthful? I could list many other stories where these networks and major newspapers like the New York Times falsely try to convince their viewers of individuals being guilty of committing rape or other serious crimes. Fox News makes mistakes but they are angels compared to the other lying hypocrite networks.

I would vote for Trump again, but he would have to watch his mouth and use a lot more tact in his statements. Maybe, though, he has to fight fire with fire.

Remember when Joe Biden claimed that he would unite America? But under President Biden, America is more divided than it ever was. What happened? Even some Republicans thought that Biden would bring some calm an unity to a very divided country. But after a year in office, Biden has done everything in his power to belittle Trump and Trump supporters, and anybody who disagrees with him. Trump's enemies, and that includes Biden, tried to label Trump as a racist. But Trump did more for Black America than any other president before him. He worked on prison reform, which helped free minorities that were behind bars for non violent offenses. He brought Black unemployment down to record lows. And when the Left, including Biden, call Trump a racist deplorable clown, it is insulting the over 70 million people who voted for Trump...including millions of Black and Hispanic voters. How do these insults unite America? Enough with the name-calling Mr. Biden and you other holier-than-thou, Democrats.
Inflation is a rise in the aggregate prices of goods and services across the entire economy. Different sectors of the economy each have their own reasons for their prices; some sectors go up while others may go down. The inflation rate tries to take the entirety of all these factors and lump them together into a single statistic.
Rachow writes, "The plain truth is that Democratic politicians don't really like elections, because they don't want to be held accountable to you, the voter, for their actions. It is much easier to govern within a one party, authoritarian system, with no checks and balances, and this bill hopes to accomplish that goal."
This month’s convincing victory over the Montana State University Bobcats earned the North Dakota State University Bison their ninth NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision national championship in 11 years. The win will no doubt cause some interesting rhetoric concerning a potential departure of the Bison football program from the FCS ranks to ramp up in earnest.
