Media: Media make it so difficult to believe what they write. It’s not my fault; it’s theirs.
There is something extremely wrong in the way they present news, in the way they form opinions and the way they push those opinions as facts. Media have power; I hardly care if they think their cause is noble if they constantly lie.
And I’ve noticed lately that when writers, editors, journalists’ lies are called out in social media they don’t apologise, they don’t admit they were wrong, but they present themselves as victims of anonymous trolls. Which means their lies were a conscious decision instead of a result of a bad research.
Think about it and think about it hard. Because you are manipulated by media all the time.
The power they hold over their audience makes them dangerous and highly oppressive for the same reason.
I won’t discuss about how the first idea the writer gives is the fact she’s drunk or that she «wants to be Amber Heard». It’s her choice to take an interview drunk. Drunk is the new sexy, I guess, but only in women. In men, it’s despicable.
She seriously informs us a. she’s drunk and b. she isn’t professional. Her words, not mine.
But then the lies begin and this is something that I cannot tolerate them.
I will notice here that she’s well aware of the importance of tenses. You will see why later.
Do we know what slander is? This here above is libel. But you know under the pretence of «free speech» and the fact Johnny Depp is famous they spread the lie Amber Heard was beaten by him. Why? Because she says so. Did any court accepted the accusation? No. Why because she dropped the PRO request before she had to prove she needed it. By dropping it, she made clear she didn’t need it, but that’s detail no?
But, journalists have learned to use the law to their benefit haven’t they?
«In United States law, a public figure is a person such as a politician, celebrity, or business leader. In the context of defamation actions (libel and slander) as well as invasion of privacy, a public figure cannot base a lawsuit on incorrect harmful statements unless there is proof that the writer or publisher acted with actual malice (knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for the truth). The burden of proof in defamation actions is higher in the case of a public figure.»
Basically, the public figure has less human rights that you and me. This should have made media more careful. Instead, it has made them capable of pushing their current agendas with glee, totally disinterested in the reputation of the people they will destroy.
1. Amber Heard never proved Johnny Depp beat her.
2. Amber Heard’s credibility was destroyed by her own actions and lies.
I repeat lies.
a. “I don’t have to; I have to. If I didn’t have a platform, I would stand on my toes,” says Amber. (I’m switching to her first name now because, come on, we’re talking about some heavy shit.) “I have a semifunctioning brain and a semifunctioning limbic system, and as a human being, it is incumbent on me to make the world a better place in any small, insignificant way I can. I’ve always tried to do the right thing. I used everything I was given. I had to make it better for the next person.”
I repeat it in case you didn’t read it the first time.
Before Amber Heard made her claims of abuse public knowledge (thus inviting all of us in her private life) she sent the infamous by now but neglected by media extortion letter of hers in which she was basically blackmailing her husband to pay her up so they could have a private and amicable divorce. Making the world a better place wasn’t first priority back then. Only when he refused to pay her it became such an important quest of hers. Her original reason for divorce wasn’t abuse either. Irreconcilable differences transformed to domestic violence when her demands were denied.
Great hero we have here, don’t we?
These two women believe they have the right to talk in the name of all women. I don’t grant them the right to talk on my behalf. I detest them and their mentality. I detest liars and blackmailers and abusers. And women can be all of that. After all, let’s not forget, like media do, that Ms. Heard was in fact arrested for domestic violence in 2009 and when it became public knowledge her side/or her victim tried to use her sexuality to shame the arresting officer who turned out to be not only a women, not only a homosexual woman, but a homosexual woman who supported abused women. Oooops…. And then she wanted to deleted it from her record when she met Mr. Depp, a wish she was granted.
«After denials and failed attempts to destroy Heard’s credibility, Johnny Depp paid her $7 million.»
Seriously, was it Depp who forced her side to lie about his interest in the charities she has chosen to donate the money?*
Was it Depp who forced her again and again and again to not give her deposition?
Was it Depp who forced her to claim she wanted her day in court while doing her damnest to avoid it?
Allure will probably claim he was. And allure will be lying, but it’s not as if they care. It’s not as if they have any credibility either. I’m sure Johnny Depp tried to destroy that too.
The idea that she fought to reach to where she is today (and let’s be honest here, she’s mostly known as Depp’s ex over anything else) or that she was born poor or the other melodramatic nonsense that are written in a guilt-tripping way won’t stop us for questioning the statement she’s a millionaire -because there are her own court documents that debunk the very idea of it. Unless she lied in her court docs when «she tried to take Johnny Depp’s money to give to those in need» she’s not a millionaire- and I also doubt she got more money for Justice League & Aquaman than Gal Gadot did for Wonder Woman)
The court documents can be found in this daily mail article. I loathe to link to daily mail, but it does have the court document, so what can I do?
The one thing I agree with this article is that «there’s not a drop of a victim in this woman«. That’s painfully obvious, no matter how much media and herself try to present her as one.
I mean I can go on about how Amber Heard «didn’t come out«, only she did, about how she «was never in» and remind all of them that she first labeled herself as lesbian and then as bisexual and always, always the victim of «society» and people telling her not to come out as bisexual because it would hurt her career, but that’s irrelevant to me. I can go and on… how she constantly tries to present one thing with words and how her actions prove she’s nothing like that. I’m sorry, but I don’t have to stomach to read the rest of the interview. I already feel myself gagging by all parties involved.
But media love what she presents because her words match the current state of feminism, but in the end if the current state of feminism is Amber Heard then the current state of feminism is fake. And oppressive. Just like media.
So, when people in social media started calling out the article and its lies, Michelle Lee, the editor, took over to defend it. Actually, not to defend it but to attack those who explained how many lies were in the article.
When people (not Depp stans or anonymous trolls as Michelle Lee called them, but people who have followed the case closely waiting to learn the truth through courts and laws and justice) questioned what was written in the article, Ms. Lee took over to share more lies.
Because why not? It’s feminism we promote, not the truth!
«Donated» money. Let’s remember about tenses. Past tense. As in «it has already happened». It’s also in the article.
Lie one, she hasn’t donated anything yet.
And Ms. Lee knows it.
Lie two, the money was for the divorce settlement & not for any abuse. You can not settle abuse cases for money. On top of that there were no charges, she had only ask for a restraining order.
Of course, it doesn’t mean the editor of Allure will delete the first tweet. Oh no, no, no. She will let the lie being spread for reasons only she knows. And maybe the rest of the people working in allure know. It needs integrity to admit what you wrote is a lie. It needs dignity and in the face of the current state of feminism we do not care about such values any longer. The lie is more powerful than the truth.
But they don’t leave it there.
No. They have to stop you from calling out their lies
by making themselves the victim and shaming you. Cool, isn’t it. Everyone can do it. You can do it. You call the person who calls out your lies a «Johnny Depp stan» and state you’re being unfairly attacked and there you have it; you’re a victim. And then you have them asking «why would Amber Heard lie?» I ask «why do you lie?»
I don’t know if anyone called her names for having Heard on their cover. I saw people calling out their lies.
Since I’ve started writing these blog entries about Johnny Depp I’ve been afraid of being called «abuse apologist» and «victim shamer» so I was reluctant to tag them. In the end, my opinion pieces are based on facts, on events that I have watched, lies I’ve seen being said and court documents. There are no lies here written by me. I describe things as they happened. I’m not the one lying. I’m not the one biased. I’m not the one promoting one side of the story, one person due to feminism. It’s not me who should be afraid to be called names. It’s those who lie on repeat. And those who lie on repeat are those who have more power than me, a better platform than me to spread their lies. Those are the oppressors no matter how noble they find their cause.
How difficult is to stick to facts and keep believing her? A lot it seems since they have to lie to support her. Shameful. Disgusting.
Ms. Heard: «But the actress promptly rejected the idea that Depp could do that. In a statement on Thursday, her team said that she “appreciates Johnny Depp’s novel interest in supporting two of her favorite charities” and the actor’s move is “great and unexpected news….»
CHLA in 2006
«Johnny Depp embodies the very spirit of the `Courage to Care’ Award because he puts smiles on the faces of thousands of children through his great work on film, and his longtime private advocacy of children and children’s charities is nothing short of inspirational,» says Ms. Fernandez-Farrand.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was one of the two favourite charities Amber Heard claimed she would donate money to and appreciated her ex-husband’s novel interest in supporting it, while the same charity had awarded Johnny Depp ten years earlier for his longtime private advocacy of children and children’s charities». To be honest here, Ms. Heard’s problem must have been her inability to understand what «private» means.
Question: How can I believe the other Hollywood scandals when I see media lying so blatantly about information I can easily find on the internet and accept the trial by media method of destroying people?
Answer: I can’t. I want police and courts and justice to decide before I start believing accusations. And the only one to blame is the press.
And if we add other more important issues here, the currest state of media becomes even more problematic.
