NBC Targets ‘The Epoch Times’ Who Has ‘Biggest Social Media Following Of Any News Outlet’
TDC Note – These satanic globalist can’t stand the fact that Gina Shakespeare is beautiful, intelligent and supports Trump!!! hahahaha Not to mention the fact The Epoch Times has mapped out the entire hillary treasonous campaign from top to bottom!!
This is just a small sample of the what The Epoch times has managed to build. Take note of the top, central figures over seeing the entire map.
NBC News has been working for months, if not longer, on a hit piece against the website The Epoch Times, an independent media outlet that NBC describes as “By the numbers, there is no bigger advocate of President Donald Trump on Facebook,” stating in their sub-header “The Epoch Times now wields one of the biggest social media followings of any news outlet.”
Between the sub-header and the very first sentence of their hit piece, we see the motive behind NBC News’ desire to discredit the Epoch Times, but looking further into the piece, specifically the second and third paragraphs, we see why they chose The Epoch Timesto start their campaign to destroy Independent Media.
The small New York-based nonprofit news outlet has spent more than $1.5 million on about 11,000 pro-Trump advertisements in the last six months, according to data from Facebook’s advertising archive — more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself, and more than most Democratic presidential candidates have spent on their own campaigns.
Those video ads — in which unidentified spokespeople thumb through a newspaper to praise Trump, peddle conspiracy theories about the “Deep State,” and criticize “fake news” media — strike a familiar tone in the online conservative news ecosystem. The Epoch Times looks like many of the conservative outlets that have gained followings in recent years.
Wait? The ‘deep state’ is a conspiracy theory? After the news that has been exposed over the last three years and the subsequent “Russian Collusion hoax,” that was set into motion by that very entity, with even liberal mainstream media outlets using the term “deep state,” how does NBC call it a conspiracy theory?
As we have spent years documenting the cornucopia of actual fake news pushed by the liberal establishment media, with stories changed stealthily after proven wrong, editors notes and corrections on others explaining what they got wrong, many changed headlines and even complete retractions and the deletion of entirely false and inaccurate articles, calling the “fake news media” a conspiracy theory is also fake news in my opinion.
Another possible reason they are targeting The Epoch Times is they believe President Trump is a “a key ally in the anti-communist fight,” and the liberal establishment media seems to be all on board with the Democrats’ communist agenda.
NBC NEWS SENDS ‘INAPPROPRIATE’ QUESTIONS TO THE EPOCH TIMES
While the NBC News piece was published on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, they apparently have been working on this project since before June 20, 2019, as The Epoch Times published a piece on June 20, updated again on July 22, 2019, regarding the “Inappropriate Questions” they were sent by two reporters for NBC News.
The NBC reporters questioned the religious beliefs of some of our staff members, sought to discredit their beliefs, attacked our journalism based on personal opinion rather than objective analysis, and even sought out information on the personal lives of our staff.
In responding to NBC with this open letter, we are not only defending The Epoch Times, but also journalism itself, freedom of the press, and freedom of belief.
As a fast-growing independent media, we proudly uphold the highest standards of journalism.
The Epoch Times was founded in 2000 with the goal of bringing truthful and uncensored news to people around the world. Our founders personally experienced the horrors of communism in China.
In our reporting, we have continually exposed the crimes of communism against humanity. For doing this, we have sustained ongoing attacks. Ten of our staff members were arrested in China and given prison terms ranging from three to 10 years.
A few clear examples are offered by The Epoch Times of those inappropriate questions, such as “Is the Epoch Times predominantly staffed by volunteers? Do some Epoch Times interns, volunteers, or employees live in a shared home?”
Really???? Frankly The Epoch Times handled that question with far more diplomacy than I would have because my instant response would have “what on earth makes you SOB’s think that is any of your business?”
