Teaching Kids News… is the Newest Big Money Agenda. Given our era of fake stories and biased stories and inaccurate stories, and un-researched stories, it would appear that the Liberals are not content to manipulate our Big People media, and have begun a mind manipulation of public schools – beginning as young as age 3.
The concept is that media focus should be cued to reputable, approved sites that have been culled to frame one particular point of view. Theirs. The claim is that they are providing an unbiased vision into the current event news stories and rewriting the content to fit the dumbing down to different levels of understanding based on age.
So, I thought I’d take a look at the curriculum content provided by one such site that offers it’s news tabloids to school curriculums: “Teaching Kids News”. While their claim is that they believe in choice and truth, they also seem to want to censor alternative news sites stating they are most likely to convey fake and false news, while the top tier are the most valued; Washington Post, New York Times…etc.
A story they published concerning newly appointed NSA Michael Flynn, was ripe with innuendo, bias, propaganda, manipulation, and was nearing if not on target to making false and misleading statements, aka lies. Partial points of one story include the following (although the entire story read like a Hillarygate email):
“When one of Donald Trump’s advisors (National Security Advisor Michael Flynn) was asked if he had talked to the Russian government before the U.S. election, he said no. But that was a lie. He had to resign (quit his job) because of his lie.”
“But in this presser, Trump seemed more interested in complaining about the media and bragging about his own accomplishments. For more than a year, Trump has been saying that certain media tell lies. The news organizations he doesn’t like are usually the ones that are not saying good things about him.”
This story was geared for sixth graders. At the end of the story, they state that they are ‘biased’ but that other reporters don’t admit to that and so they are bad and they, TKN, are ‘good’…WHAT???
The entire point of their supposed program is to provide Truth, not bias garbage! The most important lesson is lost – teaching a child how to make their own informed opinions. Instead, this one woman show, Joyce Grant, is simply a fake/false/biased news feed.
Common Sense Media is another organization heralding their version/vision of what media and news children should be made aware of given the bias of the editor. With a whopping $25 million annual budget, a former Board Member by the name of Chelsea Clinton, and a CEO, James Steyer, who was a partner with Hillary Clinton on the Too Small To Fall initiative, their Board of Directors are a Who’s-Who of Democrats with affiliation or allegiance to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Their grants include two very small amounts to a school in Omaha, and one in Denver. Otherwise, their entire expense budget of $16.1 million covered salaries, rent, and travel. Their Balance Sheet reflects nearly 100% in cash or equivalents hording to the tune of $20 million. Sound familiar?
They attest to ‘the best books’, ‘the best news sources’, ‘the best movies’, ‘the best TV, websites, best blah, etc…’ For example, for teens, the best news is Huffington Post Teens (Full disclosure, Huffington Post is one of the funders). And ‘the best for character development’ included 99% television movies and other movies, only a spattering of books.
Having been hailed by Chief Obama as the best source of media censorship available for children, the company is funded by NBC, Comcast, DirectTV, Time Warner, Nickelodian, Google, Best Buy, AT&T and NCM. What do all these company’s have in common? 1. They all supported Hillary Clinton. 2. And they all will likely profit significantly as their television, web search, and movie channels will be pivotally promoted!
In essence, what we have in our public education system is classes beginning as young as 3 years old in which the news, the media, and information is completely controlled by Democrats, Hillarygates, and Liberal propaganda dictating to and molding the very core belief system of our children, all the while promoting the very same companies profit margins. As in – CHA-CHING.
Quite a YAK!
FYI – The Bible got 3 stars.
