I didn’t watch the Oscars. Why would I want to watch smug people who hate me congratulate themselves on how great they are?

I’d rather vomit blood. Maybe that’s not a fair analogy. I’d rather crawl on my stomach over hot coals covered with broken glass. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

I wasn’t alone, as viewership hit a 9-year low, just a little more than half the audience in 1998.

I was aware, however, that the NY Times planned to run a pretentious ad called “Truth” as a retort to Donald Trumps hits on fake news and, particularly, the NY Times.

The key point of the Times’ ad is that The Truth Is More Important Now Than Ever:

Here it is.

Trump reacted:

The NY Times ad raised the issue of why is the truth only important now?

The NRA just released a video which hits back at the Times and makes that point, why does the truth only matter now?

Why didn’t the truth matter when Obama was in office? When Obama was lying, when Obama was covering up, when Obama had scandals?

The New York Times placed an ad during the Oscars to tell us that the truth is more important now.

But why now?

The truth is that the truth didn’t matter to The New York Times then as much as now—because as long as liberals were “progressing,” the truth was depressing.

America has stopped looking to The New York Times for the truth, now more than ever.

The times are burning and the media elites have been caught holding the match.
