The Left is automatically hostile to any media voices deemed to be right-wing.
The Democrat Media Complex demands full control of the narrative.
Now, Hollywood actress Amber Heard is helping the establishment get away with something disturbing.
The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard began as a trivial squabble between two Hollywood celebrities, but erupted into something much bigger.
Suddenly, the #MeToo movement was grafted onto Heard’s “plight,” as evidenced by the mewling feminist pieces written after the jury awarded Depp $8 million.
And now Heard is feeding into the establishment narrative that social media is very, very bad and must be regulated for “hate speech” and “disinformation.”
Heard said, “I don’t care what one thinks about me or what judgements you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home and my marriage behind closed doors…I don’t presume the average person should know those things, and so I don’t take it personally…But even somebody who is sure I am deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”
Heard’s statements dovetailed with a hit piece written by ignominious Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz.
In a piece that was embarrassingly edited three times, Lorenz targeted two YouTube content creators for profiteering off the Depp-Heard trial, but both content creators pushed back on Lorenz’s mischaracterization.
Democrats are itching to censor social media platforms, and Heard is giving them another data point to exploit, namely that “right-wing trolls” lied about Heard to sway public opinion in Depp’s favor.
Unfortunately for Heard, her credibility was shot because of audio recordings presented by Depp at trial.
Also, Heard was not particularly convincing on the stand despite her profession.
If anyone came out looking worse than Heard, it was arguably the ACLU.
During the trial, it came to light that the ACLU ghost wrote a Washington Post op-ed for Heard in which she obliquely criticized Depp of domestic violence.
Heard and the ACLU also timed the article to coincide with the release of Aquaman, a blockbuster film in which Heard co-starred.
But Heard and the leftist media elites don’t seem to want to stop digging.
Embarrassingly, they keep giving her airtime to push the narrative.

The whole tawdry affair not only exposed Heard, but exposed a much deeper media corruption.
