David Kupelian is an award-winning journalist, Vice President and Managing Editor of WND. He is the editor of “Whistleblower” and the author of The Marketing of Evil and its sequel, How Evil Works.

In an era when print news media is going the way of the dinosaur, Whistleblower magazine is growing. The reason it’s growing is because it connects the dots of the news stories that people get so rapidly these days, showing readers where the trends are going.

What makes this even more remarkable can be seen in some Gallop Poll results noted by Vic. According to the poll, only 8% of Americans have a great deal of trust in the news media; a new low.

The reason for this distrust of the major media could be due to the average information consumer becoming savvy to the phenomenon of disinformation. What’s that, you ask? Disinformation is the laundering of lies by the media; lies that come from an allegedly or assumed-to-be credible source. Because the media is doing the reporting, the public is given the impression that what’s being disseminated is full of authority and integrity.

One recent example involves the Chick-fil-A scandal. The major media presented the narrative that the restaurant caved regarding their traditional marriage stance and wouldn’t support pro-family groups anymore so that they could open up new restaurants in various areas. Looking at it in greater detail it was discovered that the major media was basically reporting a lie from a gay rights campaign.

Review this Crosstalk to learn more about disinformation as Vic and David discuss the Fairness Doctrine, the disappearance of the Jeffersonian idea of a free press, the difference between being objective vs. fair and balanced and much more.
