The Hill has lost all credibility with the American people (at least those who are paying attention). Their reporting this morning is a potent example of the power they wield, as they actively work to deceive the American people.
The Hill posted a story on their website at 10:08 p.m., September 8, 2020 titled, JUST IN: Trump, supporters gathered without masks in North Carolina despite request from local GOP official. At 10:28, they posted the story on Twitter with the following photograph, featuring a full audience of Trump supporters in which virtually ALL of them are wearing masks. (But wait, during the same hours, we learned that Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.)
Daily Caller posted the link and commented, “Gonna assume y’all didn’t look at the photo before hitting send on this tweet” At 11:26 p.m. , The Hill reposted the article, with the new photo, below:
(But wait, during the same hours, how about that Nobel Peace Prize nomination?)
The article is short and (to quote a favorite politician) “emaciated.” The tone of the author is one of a child with hurt feelings and tear-filled eyes, as the left continues to find things to whine about. The apparent fragilities of reporters, everyone from Cizzilla, to Cuomo, to Stelter, are driving a narrative of negativity – they are void of one of the fundamental requirements in ethical reporting, objectivity. (But wait, didn’t we hear something about a Nobel nomination for Trump?)
The Hill fully understands that if they report supporters were not wearing masks that the general public will believe it. The same photo could have been posted with a headline that says “Vast majority of supporters wearing masks at NC Trump Rally” and it would be substantiated by the photo. Instead, The Hill is lying. The Hill is looking for a ‘gotcha’ moment. This is unquestionably unethical journalism. (And again, wasn’t there something about a Nobel nomination for the President?)
During the same night, President Trump was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for brokering a peace deal in the Middle East. Considering that the possibility of peace in the Middle East has been considered impossible for decades (if not centuries), this is a huge accomplishment with global ramifications. By the morning of September 9th, mainstream media, except for Fox, was silent on the matter. Numerous international sources and smaller US sources were very active on Twitter about the nomination, but it was lost in the newsfeeds, overshadowed by the larger ‘news’ outlets. It is yet to be seen if those ‘news’ outlets will report on the nomination, perhaps at a later time today. (update, The Hill finally found a picture during the late morning hours of part of a crowd at the rally with not a whole lot of mask wearing. whew, right?)
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after Trump successfully pushed a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), then later achieved success with Kosova and Serbia.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said, “I’m not a big Trump supporter. The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”
(In 2018, The Hill published a story about the President’s nomination for the same prize. It was not widely distributed nor referenced. Evidently, it is not newsworthy now that we are fewer than two months away from a Presidential election.)
As of Wednesday morning, at about 6:00 a.m., the lead stories from various outlets were as follows:
· The Hill – Prudent or ‘pathetic’? GOP senators plan to vote on coronavirus relief Thursday – not a single mention of the Nobel nomination on their home page.
· CNN – Trump intensifies assault on rule of law as he fights for reelection – not a single mention of the Nobel nomination on their home page
· ABC – Coronavirus news: India records over 89,000 new cases as government relaxes restrictions – not a single mention of the Nobel nomination on their home page.
· NPR – Justice Dept. Intervenes To Take Over Trump’s Defense In Defamation Lawsuit – not a single mention of the Nobel nomination on their home page.
· CBS – Department of Justice moves to defend Trump in defamation lawsuit – not a single mention of the Nobel nomination on their home page.

Also this morning, The Hill posted Kim Kardashian announces end to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on Twitter. Hard hitting story, right? It is a strange time in our nation when news sources choose to put stories about reality TV stars ahead an historic peace brokering in the Middle East.
Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and his terms in office were historic – because of the color of his skin. Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Price and his time in office is historic – because he has successfully brokered peace in the Middle East. MSM denies coverage for Trump but heralded Obama. This is the very definition of racism, perpetrated by the media, condoned by the left.
