Can You Have a Riot with No Media?

Fake news tuvia

 

What if they gave a riot and the media didn’t show up?  “If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?” For decades now it is seen in Israel that violent “demonstrations” are in direct proportion to the number of cameras that show up. Tragically, this scourge has now invaded America’s cities and the same is true. Most of the “news” is generated by media coverage.

This photo is a classic example of the type of fake news that I am highlighting. The original New York Times caption in 2000 read: “An Israeli policeman and a Palestinian on the Temple Mount.” The truth was: “American Jew, Tuvia Grossman, rescued by police after being beaten by a mob of Palestinians.” (Read the amazing real story at Honest Reporting.)

If a group stages a peaceful protest it gets little attention, but if there is violence, looting, injuries, or death, it gets 24/7 media. That is the nature of the drive for ratings: “If it bleeds, it leads.” So, this can become corrupt, leading to staged events to attract media coverage.

How does this compare to Bible warnings? We know it reveals the end times, but it also simply exposes the deceitful heart. Consider this selection from Proverbs 12.

“An honest witness tells the truth; a false witness tells lies. Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed. Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil; joy fills hearts that are planning peace! No harm comes to the godly, but the wicked have their fill of trouble. Yehovah detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.” Proverbs 12:17-22 NLT

A false witness describes riots as protests, or describes mobs as protesters. It is a lie to refer to looters as hungry people looking for bread. Those of us who love Yehovah God and His Son, Jesus (Yeshua ben Yehovah) must stand for truth. Pray for lies to be exposed and shalom for our nation.

“But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment (hypocrisy).” James 5:12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the United States. Pray for our leaders in both countries.
