Do you agree CNN’s past week deserves them being given this Royal Title?

In a speech by a Congressman on the floor in the House of Representative stated a major news source in the USA was ““vitriol, prejudice, bias, and deception” in their reporting. Brooks called CNN “Fake News King.”

King Solomon

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. (Proverb 26:20)

Where no wood is, there the fire goth out,…. Or “woods” (h); where there is a large quantity of wood or fuel, the fire is kept up; but where there is little, scarce any or none at all, it goes out of course;

So where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth; or is silent (i): men cease to quarrel one with another; they hold their peace and are silent, when there are none to bring tales from one to another, or any whisperer or backbiter to suggest evil things of each other; or when such are discouraged on both sides, and their tales are not listened to; or when they are detected and thrust out of doors, as they deserve, then strife subsides, and peace ensues. Contention is like a fire, the flame of which is blown up by talebearers and whisperers, who are as incendiaries, and as such are to be treated.

What’s My Point?

Don’t we have enough issues and problems firing up anger, intrigue, and dissension in our Nation? This ancient proverb compares gossip as wood being added to increase the flames?

In My Opinion

Perhaps we need a law to pass some heavy fines to news sources when they report news inaccurately like this source did last week.

President Roosevelt stated, “speak softly but carry a big stick.”

Perhaps we need to change the wording to “report truthfully or get hit with a big fine “

For example one million paid to Trump 2020 reelection campaign fund.

One million paid to Covington Catholic School fund.
