Political correctness and party loyalty do not always have to act in ostentatious ways. Sometimes the subtly of misinformation is just as, if not more, effective. Fortunately for America, many citizens are not fooled by such chicanery.
As an example of this, the Daily Caller reports that a tweet by the Associated Press on the Fresno Killer’s war cry as he shot at a victim showed just how manipulative the press is.
On April 18, the AP tweeted, “Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted ‘God is great’ before killings.”
The propaganda machine that is the AP was immediately besieged by people slamming the news site.

Once again, @AP is lying. “Allahu Akbar” is what he actually shouted.
This was a lone wolf Muslim terror attack AP is trying to cover up. https://t.co/fphVDIR68V

It is this kind of pressure and calling out that will hopefully shame the mainstream media into reporting the truth and not “fake news”.
