The Charlottesville lie that just won't die.
The media told us all that when Trump said "very fine people" he was referring to neo-Nazis and white supremacists. The media lied to you. Here's the proof.

If your teacher has assigned this, it's important to understand that Prager U isn't a learning institution but a conservative propaganda outlet. By all means, watch to learn about your teacher's biases, but then go hear from the other side, as well. Philosophy Tube, Contrapoints and Big Joel are good places to start. In fact, Big Joel has a couple of videos about the problems, both humorous and serious, with Prager U.

It's so silly that this is still being brought up today. It's been debunked several times and, in fact, people I talk to that say they've been "red-pilled" say it's because the media continually reports things that have been clearly proven false, such as this same statement.

I don’t understand how a person misspoke, immediately corrected himself, then explained what he meant, yet hasn’t been able to live it down ever sense? Has Joe Biden never misspoke? Has President Obama never misspoke? He has denounced white nationalists consistently. I’m no fan of Donald Trump but to claim he’s a supporter of Nazi sympathizers is a ridiculous stance.

Yeah so the problem isn't that he drew a false equivalency, the problem is that what he said was just false. There was no "alt-left" violence at Charlottesville, and the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally was a deliberate Alt-Right rally organized by white supremacists. People weren't chanting for the statue to be removed, they were chanting "Jews will not replace us". The statue was a way for the rally to happen without openly advertising it as being white supremacist.

Myth? I didn’t mind much about those Trump’s words. However, who in majority on both side were colliding? Left: activists, Right: ??? What group killed the girl? As usual as a politician, he tried to explain, but his explanation didn’t connect well to the scene. I feel that left the main media continuing using or referring those his words.

I really wish that during the debate the President had reminded people the many times he has condemned the KKK and white supremacist groups. I can't believe that people are harping on that yet people have forgotten Biden giving a eulogy for that klansman. You don't see the media playing that up and don't remember them playing it up when he was picked as Obama's running mate. Or when Gore called Clinton our first black president and he was going to be the second. 🙄

I’m starting to get sick of right-wing demagogues pushing the narrative that the media lied. PrgerU is literally a fascist propaganda powerhouse. - Donald Trump went multiple press conferences without denouncing the Nazis at Charlottesville, and then, when he finally did make a comment on the character of the actions that took place there, he decried both sides as having bad people and “very fine people”. - the rally at Charlottesville was advertised, explicitly, from the very beginning as a far-right neo-Nazi rally, and if you go and watch videos of those protests you will find the entire crowds of people defending the Robert E. Lee statue, protesting its removal, screaming about how “Jews will not replace us”, holding up Nazi and SS flags. - At no point in any of the videos do you find any dissent, there are no examples whatsoever not in those videos not in the accounts of people after the event or during the event saying “I came here simply for a pro-Robert E. Lee rally.” You cannot find it, because it does not exist on the internet because the people who went there to defend the statue were Nazis. Hey: facts over feelings right?

Anytime Right media uses the term Mainstream Media, what they really mean is simply Media that doesn't push our agenda. You are not any less manipulative, any more truthful, and any smaller. You just have a different agenda. You are all rich elite just like left media in a feedback loop to ever more radicalize your base. There were no "good people" at the Friday rally on the alt-right side, they were all white supremacist/white nationalist, that was the point.

stanley hoffman I understand that slavery wasn’t the only cause but other issues like states rights were tied to slavery and the economy of the south was tied to slavery. I know that a lot of people that wanted abolition weren’t morally opposed to slavery but there were a lot of people that were morally opposed to it as well. At the end of the day, slavery was a central cause of the civil war whether people wanted to abolish it because it’s wrong or for economic reasons. Also, I’m not saying that everyone fighting for the confederacy was evil, i think that a lot of them were products of their environment and time but I’m opposed to honoring the confederacy because of it’s deep ties with slavery and that way of life.

The 2017 Charlottesville media spin story on this is still in my opinion the most annoying liberal lie talking point against Trump to this day especially because so many people still believe the lie. I was hoping Trump was going to encourage people to look up his real speech that day during the first debate, but he missed it. I really wish people who care enough to vote really do their homework and stop believing this leftist propaganda.

It is not "media spin", it is LYING and PURPOSEFUL MISINFORMATION. They deliberately edited out that part of his statement in order to push a narrative that is literally the opposite of his statement. They arrogantly assumed that the general public was too feeble-minded to look into things themselves, and the sad thing is that many people proved them correct.

It's reporting like that which made me hate Trump for 4 years. My path to discovering whether or not he was racist came out of ill objectives. I wanted something horrible to say against him on the tip of my tongue. I then discovered I had no proof and upon looking at him from an unbiased POV, I discovered that I had been fed lies for years.

I keep hearing over and over again how morally bankrupt President Trump is...but when I try to pin people down to give specific examples, nearly every example they give me is something like this where the mainstream media has misrepresented something he has said, or at the very least, taken it so far out of context that it's basically a lie. This election, nobody is voting for Biden - let's be honest. People are either voting for Trump or against Trump. During the first 2 years of President Trump's first term, we heard over and over and over again how Russia used facebook ads to try to sway the results of the 2016 election. We were told that false information from an outside source threatens the integrity of our elections. So here's the question - if we accept it as true that presenting false information to sway voters threatens the integrity of our elections, then it seems to me that you cannot help but conclude that Trump is correct when he called the "fake news sources" the enemy of the people. Incidentally, that's another one...how many people in this country think that Trump called the "news media" the "enemy of the people"? Anyone who thinks this - I defy you to find me a clip of him saying that. I've seen several different clips and in EVERY ONE of them, Trump says that it is the "fake news sources" and not the "mainstream media" in general that is the enemy of the people. If CNN wants to claim that Trump attacked them with that statement, then as far as I'm concerned, that is CNN admitting that they are fake news.

The man can't win for losin'. But if it were Obama, well he cld do no wrong. Even tho as each day passes more & more truths abt him come out & show how shitty a Pres. He was. & keep in mind, Biden was Right there hand in hand w tht POS. Trump2020!!!!

The MSM goes by one goal. If they report something many, many times, whether it's the truth, half-truth, or totally false, and all the MSM outlets repeat the same thing with the same wording then the gullible public will believe what they are told especially if that information goes along with the Left's preconceived thinking.
