Fake News

In what is becoming an annual holiday tradition, the Democrat Media Complex tried to gin up a “controversy” by claiming that “Christians” were “seeing red” over Starbucks cups that allegedly offended them somehow. However, the various DMC news outlets had a tough time finding any actual Christians who were offended, so they just kind of got in a circle and jerked copy from each other to validate the alleged story.

The entirety of the evidence for this New York Times article appears to be — and I’m completely serious — a single tweet by someone with 16 followers as of press time. And that tweet isn’t even mentioned in the Times‘ article! It is included in articles the Times links to.

The next evidence — the one that mentions a “gay agenda” — is from BuzzFeed, also praising Starbucks.

The next “evidence” is a Fox News article that aggregates the BuzzFeed piece. Then it’s a Blaze article that does the same. Here’s how the New York Times sets that up: “The conservative site The Blaze also waded in, saying Starbucks had launched a ‘gay agenda campaign.’” Except that’s not what The Blaze said. It merely quoted BuzzFeed’s claim about a gay agenda. The same way that this New York Times article did. All three sites — BuzzFeed, Fox News, and The Blaze — posted the tweet from the person with 16 followers as evidence of people unhappy with the cup.

Mic.com published a story on Monday purporting that the cup design caused a ‘boycott from Christian groups,’ but the actual article cites exactly zero Christian groups calling for such a thing. The Los Angeles Times claimed evangelical Christians were ‘seeing red,’ but only cited a couple of random Twitter critics. The New York Daily News claimed that ‘Christian evangelists’ were angered by the cups, but they cited only a lone student pastor from a small church in Sarasota.

So, why do the media repeat this lame stunt every year? Honestly, it’s to belittle Christians and portray them as idiotic yahoos who fly into rage whenever they see anything that might be offensive. Also, they are intolerant and hate gay people.

  1. Hi V the K,

    How is this different than when Fox News does it? Or, are you saying Fox News is part of the DMC. Because if you are … it’s best to come out of the closet about it.

    Cheers,
    CCP

  2. The Democrat media complex does indeed hate gays. Why else would they promote Ramadan and Islam. Going on and on and on about the Ramadan Feast fest after it’s finished. Promoting hormone therapy and reassignment surgery for the mentally ill. Etc. The list happens to be longer but it would be boorish to go on and on about it.

    A most relevant post, V.

  3. CCP, Fox News is no better than any of the rest and no self-respecting human being relies on ANY mainstream media outlet for all of their opinions, thoughts, and news. THIS is the real point I think V the K is really making, and you, in your constant desire to bring out what believe is either implied or omitted, you refuse once again to see the main point…Media is untrustworthy…we must partake of it ALL carefully, critically, and with an understanding that there is always an agenda…none of them are unbiased…and no one here is unaware of that.

  4. Media is untrustworthy…

    Demonstrated by the zero-consequences for Joe&Mika (aka at our house as “the Adulterers and Fornicators”) pre-taping ‘Morning Joe’ on Wednesday while pretending it was being broadcast-LIVE on Friday morning. It’s bad enough when MSNBC airs on-screen-banter from the 700-800am segment re-edited back into the 800-900am segment feed as-if it’s live. ….Once you look for it it’s SO OBVIOUS.

    But then there were no consequences when the still-married Joe and Mika pretended they were broadcasting from separate cities, …when all the while they were in adjacent studios.

    Or the infamous ‘Reporter in the Canoe‘ incident.

  5. I am only very occasionally a Starbucks customer, but I kind of enjoy their acknowledging the season, even if they don’t trot out safe Christmas-related decorations. Besides, I don’t think the percentage of their customers who would be offended by a lack of Christmas-specific designs is very large, and Starbucks panders to its much, much larger liberal base. (Pandering may be too strong a word, but not by much.)

    And it is important not to rely on one single source for the news. As well-remarked above, they’re all biased. (What bothers me is they all claim to be neutral, when they’re not.)

  6. Demonstrated by the zero-consequences for Joe&Mika […] pre-taping ‘Morning Joe’ on Wednesday while pretending it was being broadcast-LIVE on Friday morning.

    Psh…Fake Republican Sweater Guy already said that it’s been an inside joke “for years” and that this year’s production was only the latest in a long history of doing pre-taped shows for the Black Friday production. So if anyone is just now paying attention to the revelation, then perhaps they aren’t cool enough to be watching PMSDNC anyway. (And you know you aren’t.)

  7. Much of what the news media reports on now is agenda driven . Fox differs only because they are only slightly left of center. Their reporters still believe all the leftist garbage they were taught in jornalism school. News aggragator sites such as the Blaze don’t have many of their own reporters. Breitbart is slightly better, they have a few more of them, but their headlines are exhausting and hysterical.
