The words of Solomon fit the deceitful and perverse mainstream media’s (MSM) lack of integrity and honesty. “Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity than he that is perverse in his lips and is a fool” (Prov. 19:1). The contrast between integrity and perverseness is very sharp. In the sight of God, that person who is not among the globalists or the most wealthy people in the world, but is honest and has integrity is superior to the one who is perverse in speech and actions.
The lying, corrupt MSM have become the greatest threat to our country and freedoms. They are owned by globalists who script what is said and have been reporting lies, half-truths, and complete falsehood with the clear intention of deceiving the American public.
At the present time, the MSM have about a 14% approval rating, because the American people can clearly see that they are trying to interfere by feeding our citizens false information. The evidence clearly shows that journalists work secretly with the radical left to report false information. This is a blatant violation of the ethical standards that journalists should uphold.
To be licensed as a news agency, a network must devote at least 50% of its time telling straight news in a truthful, non-partisan manner. The lying MSM now have a record of 92% opinionated news which disqualifies them as an accurate, fair, truthful news network.
In fact, the Preamble of the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists says, “Ethical journalism strives to ensure the free exchange of information that is accurate, fair, truthful and thorough.” The blatant violation of ethical journalism boils down to one great issue -- integrity vs perverseness. Mainstream, liberal, biased media have compromised their Code of Ethics.
Integrity demands that a person put on no false front, that he/she wear no artificial mask, and that he/she play no deceptive role like the current MSM is doing. Integrity excludes lying, stealing, cheating, slanting news, using negative reporting and every form of deception. Our liberal, biased MSM have clearly shown that they are perverse by causing their viewers to turn away from what is truthful, moral; and they have twisted the truth into a lie! If we cannot believe what a news anchor is telling us, then that person has no integrity.
Integrity is a broad, inclusive term referring to one of the deepest and most important qualities of a honest life. Our liberal, biased MSM has shown that they don’t possess integrity but rather perverseness; therefore, they are not worthy of our trust because of their contempt for the truth.
The words of Solomon certainly fit the deceitful and perverse mainstream media’s lack of integrity and honesty. “Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his life, and is a fool.”
What will be the shame of the MSM, notwithstanding all of their pomp, if they have an evil tongue? If they have shallow news with perverse lips, the Bible says they are fools!
