“Defund the media” (#DefundtheMedia)

"Defund the media”—a different take on the media-publicized movement to defund the police—is a saying that has been printed on many images. #DefundtheMedia was popularized as a backlash that followed the George Floyd protest. (George Floyd was a 46-year-old African-American man who was killed during an arrest by a Minneapolis Police Department officer, on May 26, 2020.)

The hashtag had been used earlier. “Say no to Tommy Hilfiger and Vera Wang #defundthemedia” was posted on Twitter by Tim Gungoll on November 9, 2012. “I like it new hashtag defund the media #defundthemedia” was posted on Twitter by ProudTrumpNationalist on October 18, 2016.

“#defundthemedia” was posted on Twitter by Dee (and others) on June 3, 2020. “#defundthemedia is the worst hashtag I have ever seen. And I’ve seen a few” was posted on Twitter by Simon Dell on June 4, 2020. “Brilliant hashtag! #DefundTheMedia” was posted on Twitter by Huntress on June 5, 2020. “Defund the Media” was trademarked with a date of first use of July 7, 2020.


Wikipedia: Defund the police
“Defund the police” is a slogan that supports divesting funds from police departments and reallocating them to non-policing forms of public safety and community support, such as social services, youth services, housing, education, healthcare and other community resources. Activists who use the phrase may do so with varying intentions; some seek modest reductions, while others argue for full defunding as a step toward the abolition of contemporary police services. Activists that support the defunding of police departments often argue that investing in community programs could provide a better crime deterrent for communities; funds would go toward addressing social issues, like poverty, homelessness, and mental disorders. Police abolitionists call for replacing existing police forces with other systems of public safety, like housing, employment, community health, education, and other programs.

If you watch Fake News @CNN or MSDNC, you would think that the killers, terrorists, arsonists, anarchists, thugs, hoodlums, looters, ANTIFA & others, would be the nicest, kindest most wonderful people in the Whole Wide World. No, they are what they are - very bad for our Country!

This PM is an idiot and YOU the #MSM coddle him to find excuses for his blatant ignorance and stupidity. We all know @JustinTrudeau is stupid but your protection of it and lack of accountability is the true #CORRUPTION in Canada.

Media created this monster. The monster always comes back for it’s maker in the end.
The new narrative should be defund the media. They are the real enemy of the people. Not the police. #defundthemedia

Defund police or mainstream media?

My thoughts on why defunding mainstream media would do more for race relations than defunding the police.

We need to defund the mainstream media… that will solve almost a 100% of the racial division in this country. #DefundTheMedia

Excuse me while I dismiss your reflection of unreality
Americans, when they look at themselves in the mirror are enthralled by their reflection. But what exactly is that reflection?
