Skip to comments.Devin Nunes: Majority of Americans Believe the Opposite of What News Media Says
Posted on 03/28/2020 9:50:28 AM PDT by blam
Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, joined The Trevor Carey Show recently, where he discussed House Speaker Nancy Pelosis (D-CA) efforts to include non-essential measures into a bill to assist Americans during the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
One of the measures Pelosi and her party attempted to include in the bill was retirement plans for community newspaper employees. Nunes said:
If you dont think that 90 percent of the media, including many of the local media, if you dont think theyre working for the Democrats, you are fooling yourself. Why would they put that in there? They put that in there because they want these retirement plans, they want to socialize the news media.
Nunes said the Democrats efforts are a way to promote their party to stay in power, which he said is not surprising.
I really think it was a misstep, Nunes continued. What they dont understand now is that were approaching now half of America that when they see stuff in the fake news, they actually believe the opposite. They dont realize that theyre having that effect.
What was maybe 25 percent of people three years ago, or before Trump was elected, just disregarded what the media said. I bet were approaching 50 percent of Americans: if the mainstream news media says something, they just think its not true and must be the opposite.
Its starting to backfire on them, not nearly fast enough, Nunes concluded. Theyre causing panic, theyre really hurting the economy, meaning the press and their Democratic allies.

I drive that truck to the park every day with my dogs.(257,000 miles on it)
The US has the most false media in the world
Trump is a war-time President, and the Media is all Tokyo Rose.
People need to figure it out.
More like Lord Haw Haw.
Even he mob has standards.
The media does not.
Zip, zero, nada.
That's probably true. For every person who believes CNN is fake news how many believe Fox is fake news? MSNBC vs. OAN? New York Times vs. New York Post? Add them all together and it's probably a majority.
Gaslighting no longer works.
All Trump can do abut it is plant the seed by inventing catchy phrases like ‘fake news.’ Hard lefties will hate him even more but those that we have some hope for will at least see the truth in what he’s saying. Peel a few off just like he’s doing with blacks.
“If you dont think that 90 percent of the media, including many of the local media,..”
Not “including”, but “especially”. Local media is the worst.
I first saw your sticker appear around 1994.
Yet the media still uses fossil fuels to generate See Oh Two...
HOW DARE YOU!
“Local media is the worst”. Case in point. I live just across the river from Lancaster County, PA. Buckle on the Bible belt. Salt of the Earth folks. Amish. Reverence for God. WGAL-8 was THE station to watch, even as an NBC affiliate. Until Trump was elected. The once down-to-earth reporters now go out of their way to make snotty, snarky, mostly baseless cracks regarding Trump news items. And lately they’ve been flogging George Soros or Bloomberg paid anti-Trump commercials where they string together random words uttered by Trump on some subject, and foist it on the viewers as him talking about Covid-19. The founders of WGAL must be spinning in their graves.
Concerning the MSM, advertisers, politicians, etc.
I have boiled it down to:
If it is not in The Bible, they are lying to me.
The weak pejorative its just the flu, bro may even become a rallying cry as a measure of sanity begins to replace the media/social media- driven hysteria. Now wouldnt that be something.
Yeah, pretty much.
