News with a bought-and-paid for slant
This June 15, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, “EXCLUSIVE: The Arizona Mirror – The Far-Left Outlet That Creates Far-Left Narratives in Arizona Is Connected to Dark Money,” links to a 2018 Phoenix New Times report that described “a new media organization in town.”
Despite the Arizona Mirror claims of being “a journalism watchdog,“ and “an independent, nonprofit news organization focused on connecting public policy with the people it affects,” the funding sources are exposed as radical entities, “including left-leaning think tanks, voter outreach groups, and nine family planning centers that perform abortions.” Mysteriously, its Form 990 tax filing links to Chapel Hill, North Carolina. See the 501( c)(3) tax exempt claims circled in red on the Gateway Pundit site.
Finding news with a conservative perspective is all but impossible. The opposition’s commitment is to altering public opinion through skewed reporting and strengthening the impact of the democrat party in Arizona. The Arizona Mirror’s small staff all previously worked for the Arizona Capitol Times and the Arizona Republic.
Be vigilant. Our previously red state is now maroon. Five of the state’s nine U.S. Representatives are democrats as are both U.S. Senators, a first since democrats Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden served simultaneously from 1941 to 1953. In 2020 Arizona gave its 11 Electoral College votes to Joe Biden, not replicated since Bill Clinton carried the state in 1996. Previously, the last time that dismal phenomenon occurred was in 1949, when Harry Truman was Arizona’s nominee.
