Media Monopoly & Conspiracy or Campaign to Discredit Trump? ASHRAF KHALIL Editorial or News?

Reader comment on item: Fellow Conservatives, Please Reject Conspiracy Theories

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Jan 11, 2022 at 10:46

For Conservatives to prevail in elections they must adopt the prevailing rhetoric. The question before the public is whether Progressives are engaged in a Conspiracy or Campaign to Discredit President Trump.

I do not see any good reason not to describe the ongoing Campaign against President Trump as a "Conspiracy" to prevent him from being re-elected, using the term in its current popular meaning.

As evidence for this I submit here a link to today's online digital article by the Associated Press and published by abc News (link below). Notice the identity of the journalist and his use of the term "incendiary." Is this News I ask, or is it an Editorial presented as an Opinion but Disguised as News? And do the Progressives and Democrats have a Monopoly over the Mainstream Media?

"Trump attorneys cite immunity, want Jan. 6 lawsuits tossed
"Attorneys for former President Donald Trump and his associates argue that incendiary statements by Trump and others last Jan. 6 prior to the Capitol riot were protected speech and in line with their official duties"
