There is so much false information floating around the cybersphere. Advice: Whatever it is, don’t believe it; then put on your falsehood detector and check up on it. On the true side, The Wall Street Journal reports that Russia, China, and Iran are running disinformation campaigns in social media claiming it was the US that spread the COVID-19 to China first; that the Gates Family Foundation created the virus to make money with the pharmaceutical companies; and that disinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic is originating from the White House. These alone, have caused a lot of conspiracy theories among the Christian community. Then there is CNN and the mainstream media and false narratives.
Breitbart’s John Nolte exposed CNN for faking a segment of Chris Cuomo emerging Monday night from his basement after being quarantined from having coronavirus. During his time in “quarantine,” Cuomo was positioned by CNN as a selfless person volunteering to exile in his basement to protect his wife and kids, meanwhile raging against everyone who didn’t do as he did. Only problem is, it was all a lie. The New York Post found out that on Easter Sunday, Cuomo, while still contagious, got into a confrontation with a cyclist after leaving his house with his wife, kids, and a second woman, violating his quarantine, and New York’s stay-at-home orders (instituted by Cuomo’s own governor/brother Andrew) just so he could hang out at his property in East Hampton, a full half-hour away, where he’s reportedly building a home.
Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker, on MSNBC Monday said that President Donald Trump is supporting protests against stay-at-home orders in the same way that he “showed solidarity” with neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, VA., in 2017. Rucker’s “neo-Nazis” claim is, like Cuomo’s incident, a widely debunked lie coming from the Post’s reporter in charge of covering the White House. Trump never said that the neo-Nazis were “very fine people” as CNN, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, and the Hollywood elite keep repeating. Trump repeatedly condemned the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups. But the media and leftists continue to repeat the lie.
Just that the news media would even report the outrageous, non-substantiated claims by Hollywood elites about Trump being a murderer, that COVID-19 was caused by climate change, and other ridiculous charges, is an indicator that the media should not be believed or trusted. Democratic leadership is also spreading deception with countless attacks on the president’s handling of the pandemic, while offering absolutely no solutions to the problem, even holding up aid funding while businesses go bankrupt and people are getting sick and dying. Yet, they blame it on Trump. Even Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Trump was right about everyone blaming him. As in Isaiah 59:14, “truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Christ said he is the way, the truth and the life. And that is something you can believe.
