Reporter fails to report 'truth' about Trump in 2005 or 2015, but now wants us to believe her

    Several women stepped forward this week to say that Donald Trump made unacceptable sexual advances towards them 10 to 40 years ago. This was part of an elaborate setup involving Clinton campaign staffer Anderson Cooper and women who were willing to make up any story to harm the Trump campaign.
    Right before the second presidential debate, a recording was released of Trump talking into a hot mic with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush. Bush was encouraging him with a lot of sex talk, and Trump was going right along. It was certainly not presidential, but it was private, locker-room talk that Trump was goaded into making. As far as the Reprehensibility Meter goes, it certainly didn’t rise to the level of the many rapes and assaults that I believe Bill Clinton has committed, with Hillary Clinton serving as an accessory after the fact.
    When Clinton campaign representative Anderson Cooper kicked off the second debate with a question about sexual assault and kissing, I immediately suspected that it was already arranged for someone to step forward and make some type of claim against Trump. I was correct. What surprised me was how weak all of the claims were. Let’s examine just one of them, with more to come.
    Natasha Stoynoff is a reporter for People magazine who wrote a story about story about Donald and Melania Trump’s first wedding anniversary in 2005. Describing the alleged assault at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, she said, “We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.” (It would be helpful if Stoynoff had specified exactly which room this supposedly occurred in, as several of the rooms have glass walls; of course, that may be why she was intentionally vague).
    Are we really to believe that a reporter for a national publication wouldn’t find this worthy of some type of mention in 2005? I simply can’t. I once was involved in sending a reporter to do a nice little story on Jerry Lee Lewis’ birthday party. During an interview, an inebriated Lewis chose to playfully point a pistol as our reporter a couple of times, which he found not amusing at all, and that became the most important part of the story. So instead of a nice, happy story on Jerry Lee’s birthday there was a story about how Jerry Lee is still running around drunk and unhinged these days. That’s what reporters do, and that’s what Natasha Stoynoff would have done if Trump had actually forced a kiss of this type on her. Even if she comes up with some lame excuse for not reporting the incident, it certainly was newsworthy a year ago, at the start of the presidential campaign. Why the silence until Anderson Cooper laid the trap?
    The fact that People magazine would go along with this shows that the media, for the most part, are no longer journalistic enterprises, but rather public relations outfits for the American left and the global elite. Like any good P.R. firm, they will share bad news about their product when forced to do so, but their job is one of promotion, not reporting.
    In the end there is no way for us to know whether some of these claims are true or not. In some cases there are factual inaccuracies that prove them impossible. But in other cases, such as the claim of Stoynoff, we have to just decide whether or not they are true based on their plausibility. For her claim to be true, she would have to be a really terrible reporter who chose to remain silent when her claim might have hurt Trump during the Republican primaries, but who suddenly felt the need to come forward when it was just a two-person race. Under these circumstances, I do not believe her.
    The American media simply cannot be trusted, as batch after batch of hacked DNC emails show collusion with various members of the Fourth Estate and the Clinton campaign. After the second presidential debate, NBC did a "Fact Check" on Donald Trump's claim that Hillary Clinton had "acid washed" her email server. With a graphic that said "NOPE," NBC corrected the record: "Clinton's team used an app called BleachBit; she did not use a corrosive chemical." This is not a joke. It's like saying, NOPE, she didn't murder the man with a double-barrelled shotgun; it was a single-barrelled shotgun. (For the record, sometimes "acid wash" is used as a generic term for permanently wiping a server, although dipping a server in acid will certainly do the trick, and is sometimes done).
    Perhaps someday we will again be able to turn on the television or pick up a newspaper and get truthful news coverage, but for now the Media, like the Clintons, exist only to serve the interests of the global elitists.
