The NY Times advises you not to think. Thinking requires using your unreliable brain and will lead you into conspiracy theories. Just believe whatever the NY Times tells you and you will have an approved source of information. https://www.rt.com/op-ed/516095-nytimes-critical-thinking-wrongthink-lockstep/

The NY Times regards its own propaganda as truth. You remember the “violent resurrection at the Capitol,” in which Trump supporters were responsible for 5 deaths? One of the alleged deaths was Capitol Hill policeman Brian Sicknick, who was allegedly beat to death with a fire extinguisher. Well, here are the facts according to Sicknick’s mother and brother:

“The mother of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick said her son was not beaten with a fire extinguisher by a mob on Jan. 6, saying he likely suffered a stroke instead—refuting reports from the New York Times and other outlets claiming otherwise. ‘He wasn’t hit on the head, no. We think he had a stroke.’” https://www.theepochtimes.com/capitol-police-officer-brian-sicknicks-mother-he-wasnt-hit-on-the-head-by-trump-supporter_3707914.html

Ken Sicknick also corrected the false New York Times report about his brother’s death, reporting that his brother “texted me last night and said, ‘I got pepper-sprayed twice,’ and he was in good shape.”

The NY Times fake news that Sicknick was beat to death by a protester was cited by the utterly corrupt Democrat impeachment managers’ argument that former President Donald Trump was responsible and should be convicted in the Senate. The fake news has also been used by Democrats and presstitutes to support claims that new domestic terrorism laws are needed to restrain “Trump Deplorables” from murdering people. All of this based on a lie from the New York Times lie machine.

Three of the alleged deaths from “violent insurrection” were natural deaths from people with pre-conditions. The remaining death was the white female veteran who was shot and killed by a black Capitol Hill policeman. The woman was not threatening the policeman and no explanation has been given for her being murdered by the police officer. Was it to provide violence for the orchestrated “invasion of the Capitol”?

I cannot think of one incident in the 21st century that the American media has accurately reported. Not 9/11, not Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Iranian nukes, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Libya, Russian invasions, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Julian Assange, Ed Snowden, the 2020 election, the Trump rally, George Floyd’s death, the invasions, bombings, and ruination of seven countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

The American media is a lie machine. If you rely on American media, you live in an orchestrated world of lies. That’s the place the Establishment and their media whores want you to be. Brainwashed, indoctrinated, and out of the way of their agenda.
