If you are one who takes the time to share accurate news articles with friends via social media or email as well as engage in discussion with family, friends, and co-workers regarding our nation and the political divide, then you are a citizen journalist.
I recently heard President Trump refer to us by that term and it made me smile. He recognizes we are doing our part.
This past week, we received a tremendous compliment from the Left regarding our efforts. Oh trust me, they didn’t mean to compliment us, but they certainly did, as they let us know how effective we have been.
It came via an article on Vox which stated, “It’s Super Tuesday and the coronavirus is spreading, but Facebook is talking about Hillary Clinton’s emails.”
The Fake News Media were working very, very hard that day to shift the discussion to Biden and the coronavirus, but we weren’t taking the bait. Instead we remained fixed on the news they wanted to hide which was covered on Fox News as “Federal Judge Orders Hillary Clinton Deposition to Address Private Emails”and on IFApray.org as Hillary Clinton Must Submit to Deposition in Email Case.
Good job, citizen journalists! It’s because of you that story circulated far and wide!
(Let us continue to pray for Judicial Watch as they have now been authorized by the federal court to question Hillary under oath about her email server. May truth be revealed and justice come forth.)
In their frustration, the liberal media did the only thing they knew to do—write another fake news article to demean us and try to throw people off the scent. In the article they stated, “If you consume your news on Facebook, the biggest news of the day (Super Tuesday) has to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails. Yes, really.”
“According to data compiled by CrowdTangle, the most total interactions on Facebook came on a Fox News article about a federal judge granting a request from a right-wing group named Judicial Watch to make Clinton sit for a sworn deposition about her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.”
Their inflammatory language describes their inner turmoil as they seek to discredit Judicial Watch lawyers and the investigation. But WE kept the story alive.
So, I’m tipping my hat to each of you who takes the time to read the articles from Intercessors for America, to pray, to hit “share,” and for sharing other trusted news feed articles throughout the day. Thank you for being willing to wade into this fight. It’s not easy. I know you make yourself a target. But it is necessary AND effective. Their article proved that.
It’s because of “citizen journalists” like you and me that have consistently helped expose fake news stories that has crippled the effectiveness of the left-wing mainstream media. Never think that what you are doing doesn’t matter. It does. Completely. Maybe you are only reaching five to ten people. But you never know who those five or ten are reaching. We each must do our part.
So, take a bow and take a breath. And let’s continue together because the fight regarding the 2020 election has just begun.
We are so blessed when you find what you read at IFApray.org valuable. We would love to read your reaction to this article. Please leave a comment below.
