The Media Hatred Of America Has Infected Young Americans Into Thinking Old Glory Is A Sign Of ‘Intolerance And Hatred’ By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
The majority of young Americans, defined as ages 14-37 believe that the United States is a sexist country (53%) and a racist country (54%). Those numbers increase among those defined as Millennials, aged 22-37, to six in 10, which is 60 percent. One in five Millennials see the U.S. flag, Old Glory, as a “sign of intolerance and hatred.”
These numbers were revealed in “The State Of Patriotism Report,” by YouGov, back in November 2018. YouGov conducted the opinion survey for the non-profit foundation Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG).
That survey also found that eight in 10 Americans could not name the five freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment, and less than half surveyed knew there were 10 amendments in the bill of rights.
The founder of FLAG, Nick Adams, said he was “totally unprepared” for the “epidemic of anti-Americanism,” according to a CNS News report from December 2018 about the survey.
Adams blamed the educational system in America, stating “That half of millennials and Gen Z believe that the country in which they live is both ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’ shows that we have a major fraction of an entire generation that has been indoctrinated by teachers starting in grade school that America is what’s wrong with the world.”
In my opinion, he is only half right, because while a look at what is happening in certain portions of America’s public school systems, and in today’s colleges across America, shows that communism, socialism and “social justice” activism, all anti-American, has replaced basic education, but another influential industry, the establishment media, deserves half the blame because of their spread of hate within America.
BY THE NUMBERS – LIBERAL MEDIA ESTABLISHMENT SPREADS HATE
Before delving into the documented examples of the liberal establishment media’s anti-Americanism, lets take a brief look at some statistics.
In November 2018, Zogby Analytics revealed that 72 percent of Americans believe the “mainstream media has played a major role in dividing Americans along racial, gender and political lines. This has led to a spread of hate and misunderstanding among some people.” 47 percent strongly agreed with that statement, and 25 percent somewhat agreed with that statement.
Just days after the FLAG study was released, Investors Business Daily reported on another study, of the media, conducted by Arizona State University and Texas A&M University researchers.
When you add it up, 58.47% admit to being left of center. Along with that, another 37.12% claim to be “moderate.”
What about the mythic “conservative” financial journalist? In fact, a mere 0.46% of financial journalists called themselves “very conservative,” while just 3.94% said they were “somewhat conservative.” That’s a whopping 4.4% of the total that leanright-of-center.
That’s a ratio of 13 “liberals” for every one “conservative.” Whatever happened to ideological diversity? Please remember this as you watch the business news or read a financial story in the paper. You might want to take its message with a grain of salt. That’s especially true if the piece seems unduly harsh on the free-market system and its many proven benefits. Or if it lauds socialism as an “answer” to society’s ills.
Keep in mind, the 462 journalists from Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press and a number of other newspapers, were financial journalists, the ratio is undoubtedly more skewed to the left among all types of journalists.
Is it just a coincidence that public trust in the media has dropped from a high of 72 percent in the mid-1970s, to just 45 percent in 2018?Only 14 percent said they had a “great deal” of trust and confidence in mass media such as newspapers, TV and radio, while 54 percent has either “not very much” (30%) or “none at all” (24%).
Side Note– Interestingly, liberal professors outnumber conservatives nearly 12 to one as well, according to a 2016 study.
LIBERAL MEDIA HATES EVERYTHING THAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT
While Americans recognize the extreme political bias of journalists, a look at what “triggers” the media into a frenzy, which often backfires on them as the specific narratives they push hard, make go viral, just to end up unraveling into “fake news,” we see a pattern of the liberal establishment media taking anti-American positions.
