RedState: Breitbart’s Stunningly Deceptive Headlines Show Lack Of Regard For Truth

Joe Cunningham, RedState

One of the big focal points of Breitbart in the past was its watchdog-level attention to what the Media said and did. Frequently, these were pointed out in posts detailing the Media’s dishonesty when it came to both stories and their headlines.

In the interest now of being fully-committed to its role as propaganda arm of the Trump Administration, a curious headline went up about Lindsey Graham. It read “Graham: ‘You’re Not A Republican And You’re Not A Patriot’ If You’re Celebrating Trump Victory.”

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
