Checking the Fact Checkers
We are divided on this earth and we fight each other over a myriad of issues every day. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the battles being waged not only in the physical world but also in the spiritual realm. We can wear our armor and use our weapons but it is ultimately God and His love that saves us. And we are to use the love He gives us to pray for and bless those who oppose us in our earthly battles.
Who determines what fake news is and what is real? Christian Robey (www.newsbusters.org/fact-checkers), Political Director at the Media Research Center, joins us to discuss censorship in the form of biased fact-checkers and the battle between the mainstream and independent media. Who is fact checking the fact checkers?
There is a backlash in Europe over the anti-freedom tactics from Brussels. We welcome back award winning journalist and writer Christine Douglass-Williams (www.jihadwatch.org) who points out that the EU is getting nervous about the backlash and is using the terms “fake news” and “hate speech” to shut down the free flow of ideas in order to keep a hold on their power.
Marxist groups who want to shut down speeches or conferences badger venues until the event is cancelled – it’s called the heckler’s veto. Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, describes how his event was canceled in Minnesota due to the heckler’s veto and how he is fighting back against this violation of freedom of speech.
John’s quote of the week:
“You have two groups of people starting from different worldview assumptions, using different processes of thinking to arrive at many different conclusions and thinking the other side is probably evil incarnate and almost incapable of communicating with each other because we don’t have much common ground. There’s only one area where you can hit this common ground and that is in the area of Christianity.”
In this week’s Section 6, John waxes nostalgic about the way it was in radio broadcasting back in his day and compares it with newscasting in today’s world. He then discusses the battle between federal versus state laws, the impact of the raid on the office of President Trump’s personal attorney, and several stories that represent a larger agenda being enacted.
