Accuracy in Media

The New York Times will air its first ever television ad during the Academy Awards this Sunday with a spot that targets the Trump administration, titled “The Truth.”

Here are some sample statements from the ad. They appear in rapid order on the screen:

“The truth is alternative facts are lies”

“The truth is the media is dishonest”

“The truth is a woman should dress like a woman”

“The truth is his refugee policy is a backdoor Muslim ban”

The ad ends with a series of changing statements: “The truth is hard/the truth is hard to know/the truth is more important than ever.”

President Trump has frequently attacked the Times for its coverage of his campaign and his administration, calling the paper “fake news” and “failing” in various tweets.

The Oscars will be the perfect venue for the Times ad since it is widely expected that the awards show will be more of an anti-Trump tirade than a celebration of Hollywood’s filmmaking  achievements over the past year.

    Thanks for the laugh. The New York Times even talking about truth is hysyerically funny because the truth is so foreign to them. They wouldn’t know the truth if it was standing right in front of them.

    My Gawd is there anything more pathetic than the original bastion of libcultism in media, the home of such luminaries as their version of sgt. “I see nothing! Nothing!” Schultz (The fanatically evil liar Duranty), now claiming to be the “official” home of THE truth? I guess we can add the label of “The Truth” to the other words and terms that the libcult has worked so hard to destroy the meaning of. Ya know, like “Fact Checking” and “Illegal Aliens”.

    Is there anything more pathetic than a pack of criminals (Whose entire profession is now constructed around lying and deception) being properly identified as being the liars and deceivers they are, resorting to ever more desperate levels of trickery to try and re-establish themselves in the positions of legitimate authority so that their Big Con can continue?
