The left leaning, Salt Lake Tribune displayed its pattern of printing distorting truth and printing lies, again. This week an op-ed piece in the Tribune made absurd claims that Glenn Beck is a Nazi sympathizer because of a few artifacts from World War II. I was not able to attend the “Independence Through History” museum, however, I did meet Glenn, at the Man in the Moon event, and I did meet Rabbi Daniel Lapin, in the same hallway where the line was growing to attend the museum. Not one ounce of support or sympathy for the Nazi practices came from these to men! They have never ever even expressed such claims in my experience of listening two these men speak! Beck, today said that he personally gave $100,000 to CUFI, Christians United for Israel. Not only does he donate, but he supports their efforts in standing with Israel and so much more. I’m not sorry, but the facts just don’t support the lies! Its incredible that the editors at the Tribune allowed this to print, but its not surprising.
And that is my point of this post. The Salt Lake Tribune has been consistent in allowing their guest writers and their pay-rolled journalists to support an agenda of defamation to those they want destroyed, for the sake of liberalism and socialism. Glenn’s story isn’t unique. I can also point to John Swallow’s case. And the Utah public eats it up with fact, even if they have seen the opposite with their own eyes.
Its astounding to me that our legislators even went along with the Tribune, to go after Swallow. There are 6 investigations on this one man! Good grief, what is wrong with these people? No citizen was ever so privileged. I am also astounded that the Rep Snow, formerly on the special committee did not divulge his connections in the first place! Where’s the integrity? Well we know that among most legislators, there is no sign of integrity.
In a Deseret News article, UT Speaker of the House, Becky Lockhart stated: “Rep. Snow is above reproach, which is why he was chosen as chairman in the first place,” Lockhart, R-Provo, said. “But whether we like it or not, perception matters in the public sphere. It pains me to lose him, his talents and leadership skills.” And there’s the headliner: Public perception matters! And with the correct wording and the correct bias any story can get spun in such a way to sway public opinion. Facts are an inconvenience and to some a problem to be pushed under the rug.
Be careful what you read and use discernment to interpret. Don’t allow others convince you that what you see first hand are lies. The sky is blue, not purple, 2 + 3 does equal 5, the same Tribune that endorsed President Obama and supports elites and socialism, does have an agenda to destroy the Conservative movement. Let’s not be fooled any longer. Let’s be good stewards of the earth and not support a newspaper that deals in trash.
