Partisan Press Lapdogs Launch Smear Campaign Against Trump And Globe After Exclusive Interview

Unfortunately, deception has become the standard, not the exception, in journalism

By Megan Barth, July 17, 2023 4:38 pm

Last week, the Globe had an exclusive sit-down interview with former President Donald Trump during his first 2024 campaign stop in Nevada. Needless to say, local and national media pounced, grabbed one sentence, and ran a coordinated smear campaign against Trump to manipulate Silver State voters. In order to wrap the smear, many in the media labeled the Globe as a “far-right” news website in order to further discredit the interview and our reporting.

Not surprisingly, Jon Ralston of  The Nevada “Not So” Independent, was the first to take Trump’s words out of context in order to manufacture a false narrative.

Did President Trump refer to Nevada as disgraceful? Yes, but in what context? In the context of election integrity:

TNG: You lost Nevada twice. How do you win Nevada?

President Trump:

I think I won the last time. I think I won both times by a lot.

This is a state that is disgraceful.

You know, we sued on the basis of …they robbed the vote at a level.

We had a lawsuit that was so good and the judge didn’t want to see it. He didn’t even want to see it.

We had a lawsuit that was, in my opinion, conclusive.

Immediately following this answer, President Trump refers to Nevada’s unlimited ballot harvesting, sponsored and passed by Democrats during the pandemic, as “disgraceful.”

Context is everything, and we are continually reminded of the importance of context when Democratic lawmakers are embroiled in controversy:

Context is important to USA Today when quoting Democrats.


According to the AP, context is important when quoting Nancy Pelosi.

As Ralston’s deranged rants and personal attacks continued for three days, we were reminded of his Twitter feud with Hugh Hewitt where Ralston publicly admitted that his “views are shaped by reporting, not partisanship” and “Objectivity is a myth.”

Try and wrap your head around these mental gymnastics:

Speaking of global lapdogs, his media colleagues were quick to join in his deceptive cuts and manufactured similar sensationalized headlines.

The Huffington Post:

The Daily Beast:

In an editorial, The Las Vegas Sun wrongly suggests that Trump referred to Nevadans as disgraceful and as “cheaters.”

There are more than a dozen examples of this yellow journalism, but we will spare you the repetitive onslaught.

As an editor, I write this not in defense of Donald Trump, but in defense of good journalism. Imagine if I had deceived our readers, and President Trump, by omitting sentences or words from of our 22-minute interview in order to create or remove context. I would be, rightfully, fired and discredited.

Unfortunately, deception has become the standard, not the exception, in journalism.

Recently, Jack Posobiec keenly pointed out the partisan practice of shifting narratives in relation to January 6th:

Partisan lapdogs, like Ralston, ignored the context of Trump’s answers to create a false narrative and deceive Nevadans.

Partisan lapdogs shift narratives to obscure their malpractice and protect their political alliances.

According to the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics, journalists should: “Provide context. Take special care not to misrepresent or oversimplify in promoting, previewing or summarizing a story.”

These lapdog tactics are not used by ethical journalists, these tactics are used by political propagandists.

Ironically, many used our exclusive interview to label the Nevada Globe as a “far-right” news website. We get it. Partisan lapdogs use this “far-right” term to discredit anyone who challenges their political dogma.

Yet, according to NewsGuard, a self-appointed guardian of the news with significant ties to the Democratic party and who received funding from Biden’s Department of Defense, labeled our content as “typically factual” and found that our “headlines accurately portray the content.(see below)

After this latest smear campaign, it is evident that the same cannot be said for our detractors.

  1. I support your journalism Nevada Globe. That’s why I comment so much. I’m appalled by the public display of cyber bullying behavior towards your publication. The cyber bully I donated over $1000 to as a new voter, and new to following news outlets and unsure (still), of where I stand thanks to the 431 legislation that allows persons convicted of felonies to vote.

    It is a trend here in Las Vegas, it’s so cliquish like the bullied misfits who don’t fit in the club, the main outlets follow one narrative, the fringes are completely racist towards black and Hispanic people. Your publication is not that and is my local go too now. Those who are bullied by cliques come out stronger.

    Thank you for maintaining journalistic integrity and not omitting. Every single one of us has the right to expect truth from the media and I think yours is the last one standing, who isn’t parroting people in power/legacy and allows people like me, to be informed, investigate further to seek facts and the ability to read your entire well written articles, without a GIGANTIC donate page that blocks the entire article from view.

    Keep doing what you’re doing Nevada Globe. The insults of “far right”, and “white supremacy “ are really getting old and tired to many.

    Your publication is a breath of fresh air and does not need trendy terms to attract a certain persuasion of voters. You have been fair, balanced and accurate… from this lady who’s job is to pay attention way in advance to geo-political, socio-economic events that can impact our community.

    If sensationalists may allegedly be threatened by you, well that’s a good thing and means you are doing the right thing.

    Many thanks and continued success on your publication.

  2. The truth to a liberal has always been like sunlight to a vampire. Liberal media, print or visual, has always been slanted left but it seems like the last 15 years they have just become outright liars.
    I have always been amazed at how people, who I thought were somewhat intelligent, could be absolutely fooled by the outright lies feed to them by our media. And now with the school systems pumping out total morons the battle to get the truth is becoming even harder.
