When Reporters Use The Word “Allegedly”
Is This “Allegedly”?
Reporters have used and still are using the word, “allegedly” when writing an article. Or they may use some synonym, like, “reportedly, supposedly, reputedly.” Now, the definition of “allegedly” is:
“Used to convey that something is claimed to be the case or have taken place, although there is no proof.”
This is the sickness of the Leftists who hate all things that are good. I’m sure you have read many articles about murders, rapes and robberies that really happened and by the criminal named, and the word “allegedly” is used. This is used even when there are known facts such as video proof. Thus, the words: “allegedly, reportedly, supposedly,” etc. should not be used but it is. Why is this?
I find that the common thread for all this is:
- the crime figures are being played down
- outright denial that something has really happened
- or, pushing some Leftists/Communist agenda
What brought me to write this article is, that in a recent RT News article, a reporter said, “More than 200 farmers from South Africa have applied for humanitarian visas in Australia after allegedly suffering attacks for being white, according to the Australian Home Affairs Ministry.”
Now, we all know for a fact that hundreds of White farmers have been brutally attacked, robbed, raped and their farms stolen from them. We also know that a video was made of the President of South Africa encouraging other blacks to kill and take (steal) the land from the White farmers. So, this is NOT “allegedly” but a FACT!
The reporters and talking heads on TV have been doing this for decades. And if you look at the articles or see the old video clips of news, it’s to make it look like either the crime did not happen or it’s did happen or that they try to down play it in some way.
It would be interesting to see if someone rapes and murders a reporter from CNN, for example. Would the CNN talking head use the word “allegedly”? Would she say something like, “Arnold Smith allegedly raped and murdered our reporter…” You can be sure that the words, “allegedly, reportedly and supposedly” would not be used. After all, they have to keep a double standard – one for us and one for them.
