(NationalSentinel) When the history of the current era is (properly) documented and written, it will show that one of the supposed pillars of American society â€” our â€˜mainstreamâ€™ media â€” utterly failed in its obligation and constitutionally protected duty to properly inform citizens of the important events of the day.
And history will show the corporate mediaâ€™s failure to properly inform the people directly led to the period of major upheaval and unrest that is just over the horizon.
By now, you may have heard that Andy Ngo, an independent journalist withÂ Quillette, wasÂ attacked, robbed, and hospitalized by a group of Antifa thugs in Portland, Ore., as he attempted to cover their hatefest â€” literally behaving like Nazi Brownshirts and fascists while claiming to be marching against Nazis and fascists.
Ngo marks only the latest journalist to be attacked by these domestic terrorists; asÂ Breitbart NewsÂ reports, there have been 15 journalists in all who have been targeted by these Left-wing extremists.
Meanwhile, the siteâ€™s John Nolte reports,Â CNNÂ has kept up a steady supportive drumbeat for antifa and its various allies, refusing not only to condemn the attacks on reporters (though the network is quick to pounce on POTUS Trump for simplyÂ calling outÂ the media) but excusing the attacks as well, which are a form of domestic terrorism:
Over the weekend, Antifa added another notch to its gun with a brutal assault on Quillette journalist Andy Ngo, an attack that landed him in the hospital, an assault that CNNâ€™s media reporter Brian StelterÂ deliberately downplayedÂ on his basement-rated weekend show.
CNN even doctored the assault video
Not including Stelterâ€™s very selectively edited video this weekend, making it seem to his very sparse audience that Ngo was just â€˜assaultedâ€™ with a milkshake and silly string that got a bit out of hand, Nolte assembled a â€œshort list ofÂ CNNâ€™s encouragement and defense of Antifaâ€™s violence.â€ (Related:Â Antifa planning to use acid in attacks on conservatives at D.C. speech rally?)
The list of CNNâ€™s excuses and justifications includes:
â€” Antifa thugs are really just fighting for a â€œgood causeâ€ (Democrats violence against their political enemies by pretendingÂ theyÂ are on high moral ground, even in defense of slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK);
â€” Antifaâ€™s fight â€œis right,â€ meaning those Antifa battles are inherently wrong;
â€” Punching their political nemeses make Antifa thugs â€œequal morally;â€
â€” Antifa is â€œon the side of right;â€
â€” Antifa has the moral ground because, inÂ CNNâ€™s world, â€œsometimes you canâ€™t fight by praising them or being nice to them. You gotta fight fire with fireâ€¦â€ â€” unless, of course, these sameÂ CNNÂ â€˜journalistsâ€™ themselves are being punched, kicked, hit, and assaulted;
â€” Antifa is every bit as heroic as the U.S. soldiers who stormed Normandy beaches on D-Day;
â€” Itâ€™s okay if the Left harasses Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife Heidi when they are out in D.C. at a restaurant because thatâ€™s â€œwhat he signed up for;â€
â€” Any criticism of Antifa is (wait for it)Â racist, despite the fact that a majority of its members appear to be white.
Just some of the journalists who have been attacked or assaulted by Antifa thugs include:
â€” Indy journalist Keith Campbell in Berkeley, Calif. (August 2017)
â€” CBS photojournalists were attacked by Antifa, with one requiring stitches (August 2017)
â€” A female reporter, Taylor Lorenz, was allegedly struck by an Antifa thug (August 2017)
â€” AÂ Daily CallerÂ cameraman was assaulted in Washington, D.C., in April 2017
â€” An NBC News team was roughed up by Antifa on two separate occasions in Virginia, in August 2018.
â€œTo understand just how farÂ CNNÂ is willing to go in order to protect Antifa, watch the full assault in the first video and Stelterâ€™s selectively editing out the most brutal parts in the second,â€ writes Nolte:

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) June 30, 2019
As long as these acts of violence go unpunished or unopposed, they will continue. What’s more, as CNN demonstrates, it’sÂ worth noting that the Left-wing ‘mainstream media’ serve as enablers for Antifa by refusing to report on their activities honestly and factually.
