Did President Trump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. That’s what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.

I. Spin is the Opposite of Policy
Whoever said that truth always wins out hasn’t spent much time in Washington. In this town of majestic monuments and post-adolescent ambition-addicts, where the campaign never ends and only impotence is considered unseemly, truth is a butterfly in a mist of acid rain. It’s hard to catch, harder still to save.
Successful leaders have always been adept at deception, of course. To say politicians are liars is to state a truism and to ignore the unpleasant fact that sometimes one must deceive in order to achieve.
But in the last couple of years, something seems different, especially relating to the Obama administration’s signature policy initiative of its second term: The nuclear deal with Iran.
Hollywood loves handing out awards.
Once upon a time, Oscar was the only game in town. Then the Emmy appeared. Okay, I get it. Awards for movies. Awards for television. Makes sense. But now we are engulfed in an orgy of award ceremonies that render meaningless the achievement an award is supposed to signify.
In the 1960s, Hollywood embraced political action in a big way. Ever since, we have seen the intersection of politics and Hollywood celebrity that is unprecedented. Hollywood knows it has the power to change hearts and minds, and post-modern Democrats have embraced the role of shameless one-party propagandists with passion.
This intellectual and artistic corruption is far worse than the Communist model where the arts were controlled by a ruthless political apparatus. The Hollywood elite have volunteered as propagandists for the Democrat party.
Tragically Steven Spielberg, a fine director, but a man who lacks elementary wisdom, has carried the Hollywood-Democrat alliance a step further with, naturally, an award ceremony.
