Everybody Has A List for 2020. Good, Bad, and Whatever, HERE'S THEIRS: 20 Stories The Media Got Horribly Wrong; The Top 10 Most-Suppressed News Stories, and LOTS MORE

20 Stories The Media Got Horribly Wrong In 2020:
It should be no surprise as 2020 comes to an end that corporate media covered a horrific year as horrifically as expected. From its laudatory coverage of the presidential impeachment it encouraged to the blatant gaslighting about this year’s riotous protests, the nation’s least accountable institution performed as usual, only escalating its protection of Democrats and leftism, and shameless manipulation of the facts while demanding total power to determine them.
Here are 20 top mortifying moments of the media in 2020.
20: Iranian Terrorist Was A War Hero
The Trump administration rang in the pre-pandemic new year with the execution of Iranian Revolutionary Guard terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani, or, as legacy media described him, a “war hero.”
Soleimani had recently orchestrated attacks on U.S. military bases in Iraq, killing at least one American contractor in December. The Iranian terrorist had also been behind bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan, according to administration officials who said this played no small role in the decision to take Soleimani out.
American media however, infected by Trump Derangement Syndrome in a debilitating condition that only grew worse as the following months marked this year among most challenging of the 21st century, refrained from celebrating Soleimani’s demise. Instead, the media lionized the Iranian general as a Middle Eastern hero while spiking fears of World War III begun by a mad man in the White House.
19: Media Celebrates Impeachment
While the novel Wuhan coronavirus brewed in China preceding a global pandemic that would bring the world to its knees, Democrats and the media entered the new year on the cusp of achieving the top item on their policy agenda since 2016: the impeachment of President Donald Trump, for any reason at all.
When the final vote was held in February, exonerating the president following the four-year stunt, corporate outlets nevertheless fawned over the process they promoted that distracted the federal government from preparing for the disease in overseas later crippling the nation.
“There’s a sacramental quality to this. There’s a ritual,” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews lamented. “There’s also something sort of this excommunication aspect to this thing.”

The Top 10 Suppressed News Stories of 2020:
Back in the day, when I was managing editor at the Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell, Mont., I enjoyed the end-of-year ritual of voting in the Associated Press’s poll of the Top 10 news stories.
When I started participating in the year 2000, my list would include many of the same stories that made the final AP list, although often with differences in ranking. But by the time I retired in 2018, my view of the news had sharply diverged from the AP’s consensus view. I’d become something of a gadfly by then, questioning what seemed to be an ever more transparent left-leaning bias in mainstream reporting.
That divergence was probably magnified by the 2016 candidacy of Donald Trump and the bright light he had shined on Fake News, but my disenchantment with my profession had been growing for years, as chronicled in my book “The Media Matrix: What If Everything You Know Is Fake?”
Still, there is no way that even as recently as four years ago I would have predicted just how abysmally irresponsible the media would become by 2020. Major newspapers are winning Pulitzer Prizes for blatantly false reporting on topics such as “Russian collusion.” Meanwhile, Silicon Valley oligarchs have appointed themselves censors -- warning the American people not to read or watch anything that hasn’t been “fact-checked” by their hand-picked thought police.
The situation has gotten so bad that it’s no longer worth ranking the top news stories of the year because so little that is covered is news and so much that is news is written off as a “conspiracy theory.” That’s why I’m introducing Heartland Diary USA’s first annual presentation of “Last Chance to Wake Up and Smell the News They Tried to Kill.” --->READ MORE HERE
