Media Narrative FAIL: The Truth About that "Crying Girl"
TIME Magazine went full douche brigade with a nasty cover of Trump looking down on a crying hispanic child. All for this immigration child detention center "scandal" which isn't much of a scandal when one fact-checks on the Google Machine for... like seven seconds. Well, someone decided to fact check this cover.
Seriously dude, what the f***?
Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing 'fine.'
'You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It's difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,' he said.
It's not like any of you are surprised that the media lies (see Immigration Attorney Blames Detention Centers on Obama and Erick Erickson Lays Out How Terrible the Press Has Been on Immigration). But this next sentence was really impressive.
Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.
So that crying girl who became a symbol of how much Donald Trump hates children - the one who made it to the cover of TIME Magazine - turns out to be another fake media narrative.
There is a lot made about how Americans are losing faith in our institutions. With most of the blame being placed at the feet of Donald Trump. But the truth of the matter, it's more what Anthony Cumia alluded to on the show. The internet should get most of the credit for exposing the media. Because the internet is what laid bare old media institutions. Facts we can all quickly find on the net is what gives us plenty of reasons not to trust media. As this story proves.
In this case, the national crisis was nothing more than a biased media looking to help Democrats in the midterms. Surprise.
