‘Media Malpractice’ ‘All the Conspiracy That’s Fit to Print’ – New York Times Accused of Advancing Debunked Carter Conspiracy Theory – Why it Matters to MHPros – plus MHVille Stocks Updates


It is a truism that there are so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ advanced by people on the left and the right. It is also true that some things are called ‘conspiracy theories’ by detractors of those reports as a tactic used to diffuse or deflect from a problematic reality. Some of the wealthiest professional people in America deftly keep one eye on politics – with their corporate, nonprofit, and personal finger on those winds of political change scales – because they recognize that politicians clearly influence or craft public policy. Public policy, in the form of regulations and the enforcement – or lack thereof – of existing laws influences the business environment. While MHProNews can’t and doesn’t try to compete with mainstream media in efforts to shed light on politically connected issues, we have for years provided a left-right headline rundown as part of our market report. In perhaps 2 minutes a day someone can get a sense on this platform of what left-leaning CNN and right-leaning Newsmax articles are reporting and with what slant.

Daniel McCarthy’s an editor and the commentary that follows courtesy of the WND News Center to MHProNews is his in part 1 of today’s article to readers.

Part 2 provides some MHProNews perspective – pro and con – to what McCarthy wrote with additional information, analysis and commentary in brief. Strengths or weaknesses to his column aside, Part 2 lays out the case why McCarthy’s topic is a timely one, regardless of a given reader’s personal politics.

Part 3 of this article is our Daily Business News on MHProNews headlines summary from CNN Business and Newsmax. Those market-moving headlines are interlaced with the graphics that sum up the most recent stocks, equities, and REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) market activity. It is a feature that has set this platform apart from all other trade media in MHVille. It is part of the combination of features that has made and kept this platform the demonstrably runaway most read trade media in modern manufactured housing history.

All the conspiracy that’s fit to print

Daniel McCarthy rips Old Gray Lady for 1-sourced story about Jimmy Carter’s failed reelection

By Daniel McCarthy
Published March 20, 2023 at 6:54pm

When is a single-source story good enough for The New York Times? When it appears to confirm a 40-year-old Democratic conspiracy theory.

Peter Baker, the Times’ chief White House correspondent, published Saturday a bombshell report, “A Four-Decade Secret: One Man’s Story of Sabotaging Carter’s Re-Election.”

It was indeed merely one man’s story. An 85-year-old Democrat, Ben Barnes, claims to have personal knowledge of efforts by Ronald Reagan allies to delay the release of U.S. hostages from Iran until after the 1980 election.

A reader has to plow through 10 paragraphs of this sensational story before encountering a concession that “confirming Mr. Barnes’s account is problematic.”

But not to fear – Baker assures us Barnes “has no obvious reason to make up the story.”

Suppose an octogenarian Republican from Arkansas comes forward tomorrow to provide a personal account of Bill Clinton’s involvement in drug trafficking in the 1980s, a notion long promoted in certain GOP circles. No corroboration, just his word for it.

In all the worlds of the widest cinematic multiverse imaginable, is there any in which the Times would publish such a piece?

The new standard for “news that’s fit to print” is when a source “has no obvious reason to make up the story.” As long as that source is from the right party.

People less sophisticated than a Times White House correspondent might classify partisanship as an obvious motive. Yet Baker tells readers Barnes was afraid of how his fellow Democrats would react to his claims.

Come again? Nothing in Baker’s report explains this counterintuitive assertion. The myth that Jimmy Carter lost the 1980 election because Reagan committed a misdeed tantamount to treason is in fact an enduringly popular conspiracy theory among liberals.

As Baker recounts, a Democratic-controlled Congress investigated the story in the 1980s but was unable to prove it. A former Carter administration official published a book “advancing the theory” (as Baker writes) in 1991, promoting it with a “guest essay” in – where else? – The New York Times.

Baker, in a remarkable line, bolsters Barnes’ credibility by telling us what he is not: “Mr. Barnes is no shady foreign arms dealer with questionable credibility” like certain earlier proponents of the “October surprise” storyline.

Instead Barnes is a career Democratic politician who was once the protege of Texas Gov. John Connally. By 1980, Connally had become a Republican, and he sought the GOP presidential nomination that year but lost to Reagan. Barnes remained close to Connally, however, and accompanied him on trips around the Middle East that summer.

Barnes says Connally told Arab leaders to send a message to Iran urging the Shiite revolutionaries to keep their American hostages until after the election. This would prolong a crisis that weakened Carter, and a newly elected President Reagan would look kindly on Tehran in return.

Barnes has waited until anyone who might contradict his story is dead. Connally died in 1993, and William Casey, the Reagan campaign manager and later CIA director to whom Connally supposedly reported on return from his Middle East excursions, died in 1987.

In the absence of testimony from anyone who could authenticate Barnes’ account, Baker pads the narrative by citing four men who have no direct knowledge about Barnes’ claims but who did hear the tale from Barnes himself over the years. Although none is identified as a Democrat, three of the four have ties to Lyndon Johnson and his legacy.

Jimmy Carter lost the 1980 presidential election resoundingly. He carried only six states and the District of Columbia. He finished 9.8 points behind Ronald Reagan in the popular vote.

With numbers like that, a partisan denial of election results has to go beyond questioning returns from individual districts or states. To discredit Reagan’s victory, and excuse Carter for the multitude of failures that led to his defeat, requires a different kind of conspiracy theory. One that projects the taint of Iran-Contra back to Reagan before he even became president, and redeems Carter for the greatest shame of his presidency, is irresistibly seductive to liberals. Even if the whole thing comes down to one politician’s word.

Journalists write the first draft of history and, in this case, perhaps the second or third as well. As a profession, academic historians are hardly less biased than the legacy media in their preference for one of our major parties. When liberals boast of being on the right side of history, it does not mean time has proved them right. It means their conspiracy theories and inadequately sourced stories have passed for truth in the textbooks and paper of record. ##

Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

That partisanship routinely infects or otherwise influences news media is part of the premise of award-winning independent journalist Sharyl Attkisson in producing the graphic routinely linked or posted below on MHProNews. As the industry’s most-read trade media, MHProNews has periodically informed and reminded readers of the obvious lack of balance found in numbers of mainstream media accounts, be it left- or right-leaning, that report about manufactured housing. The lens grasped by a journalist and their editor(s) routinely influences writers and therefor readers. That said, it is a fair issue to muse about as McCarthy has. Are even major legacy media brands like the left-leaning (or when applicable, by implication, right-leaning sources too) New York Times guilty of bias to the point that the so-called rules of journalism go out the window?

The award-winning documentary video Shadows of Liberty probed that through a largely, but not wholly, left-leaning perspective. Part of what makes Shadows of Liberty compelling and insightful is that it made the very direct connection with how advertisers, not just political views, influences media reporting. Furthermore, Shadows showed how media on the left and right were tricked by politicos into buying into what became the Middle Eastern military conflicts that stunningly have lasted some 20 years during both Democratic and Republican administrations’ leadership. In essence, the notion of a free press is undermined to some degree when news reports fail to objectively question what a given administration claims in as neutral a manner as possible.

Fiction has become reality in a “Wag the Dog” (the 1997 political comedy movie) fashion. As left-leaning Wikipedia says: “The film centers on a spin doctor and a Hollywood producer who fabricate a war in Albania to distract voters from a presidential sex scandal.” For those who wonder, the President Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinski scandal, per Wikipedia, “News of the scandal first broke on January 17, 1998, on the Drudge Report.” “The story broke in the mainstream press on January 21 in The Washington Post.” It was “In July 1992, [then Governor] Bill Clinton adopted the idea of lift and strike as part of his call for “real leadership” in Bosnia…”

The influence of big tech and big media over what American journalism is remarkable. MHProNews and our MHLivingNews sister site have made these occasional features because thinking Americans looking for affordable housing when they are properly introduced to manufactured housing often wonder silently or out loud: ‘why didn’t I know (such and such) about manufactured housing before?’ ‘Bad news’ about manufactured housing is sadly all too common in mainstream media. But what about fair and balanced reporting about the good news about manufactured homes?

One arguably need not look far beyond the influences and lessons learned from examining the corporate and media behavior of Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway to begin to grasp how the ‘powers that be’ in manufactured housing have behaved. Berkshire owned dozens of newspapers for years. Why didn’t Buffett use synergy between his corporate owned media outlets to debunk the false notions about manufactured homes? Berkshire reportedly ‘holds the paper’ on those newspapers they sold to Lee Enterprises. Geico Insurance and other Berkshire-owned brands could be used to influence, ala the lessons of Shadows, mainstream media if they so desired. A logical deduction is that they did not desire it.

More recently, the Berkshire and big-brand dominated Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) announced that they were doing an outreach to the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook. Their announcement came about a year after MHLivingNews published the article linked below.


As MHProNews has reported, MHI problematically made their pitch to AP that their failed CrossMods scheme somehow merited a separate category of reporting by journalists. What was that all about? MHProNews unpacked in the article below why MHI’s pitch is fundamentally flawed. By MHI engaging on the terminology issue recently, it begged the question – why didn’t MHI engaged years or decades earlier? That noted, it should be apparent that MHI ought to have reached out to AP on this issue decades ago. To be clear, MHI should press this but without pushing CrossMods in the process.  Not only have they not led, MHI followed the efforts by our twin platforms (MHProNews-MHLivingNews) to some degree speaks for itself.

The evidence is clear for those who desire seeing objective reality. Manufactured housing is underperforming during an affordable housing crisis. The industry has obviously been underperforming for essentially all of the 21st century.


True State of the Manufactured Housing Industry in March 2023 Based on Facts, Not Clever Agenda-Driven ‘Fiction$’ – plus Sunday Weekly MHVille Headlines Recap

The so-called corporate and dominating national trade group clearly have a significant level of responsibility for the status quo and the various events which brought the industry to its currently low ebb. When far more costly conventional housing is outselling manufactured housing by a factor of some 9 to 1 during an affordable housing crisis that fact speaks volumes.

Big Media and Big Tech have enormous influence in our society. Like Buffett himself, or for that matter, for the private equity giant BlackRock, much of big tech, big media, and big corporate influence demonstrably leans left politically. Donor dollars are but one way of measuring that statement. It isn’t just media bias. It is corporate bias. Evidence for that is found in the documents and facts found below.

What was deemed ‘conspiracy theories’ about the origins of COVID19 3 years ago or regarding concerns about the Big Pharma mRNA treatments that were rebranded as a ‘vaccine’ some 2 years ago have since proven to be far more accurate than those who scoffed. What is the lesson to be learned?

In no particular order of importance.

  • It is risky to rely on one source of information only. Though we are demonstrably the largest trade media (see links above) serving manufactured housing, we periodically dip the toe into reports made by others and examine them in the light of known facts. Savvy professionals and investors should do similarly.
  • Professionals who want to be well informed should try to compare and contrast the claims made by differing groups.
  • The fact that supporters of MHI and their dominating big brands have gone out of their way not to debate or publicly discuss their performance is a red flag for those groups who dodge accountability.
This is but one of several such reports with analysis and commentary on this topic published in recent years. MHI has been ducking accountability for years, as these documented examples reflect. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/masthead/4-quick-documented-examples-of-manufactured-housing-institute-leaders-publicly-ducking-out-on-explaining-their-performance-or-lack-thereof-els-howard-walker/
  • Daniel McCarthy’s analysis is an interesting one, and he thoughtfully provided the flip side of the argument. By way of analogy, when MHProNews provides an analysis, we often use much or all of the quoted source’s claims on a topic. That gives readers a chance to see what that source said in their own words. It makes our analysis more balanced because a reader can see ‘each side’ and weigh the evidence in the light of a more complete report.

For years, MHProNews did something somewhat similarly to what the now defunct Journal of Manufactured and Modular Housing did. Namely, provide statements by the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) and MHI. Let readers compare and contrast themselves. That and our left-right media summary inspired the tag line, “We Provide, You Decide.” © We treat adults like adults.

As an understanding of the political and corporate phenomenon of expression that included paltering, spin, deception, and misdirection grew, MHProNews increasingly provided a topical analysis and commentary. Because they are fact- and evidence-based, they still respect the readers: “We Provide, You Decide.” ©

That noted, from early on, our tag line: “Industry News, Tips, and Views Pros Can Use” ©

An official for Facebook admitted during a deposition that their essentially sponsored ‘fact checks’ are still someone’s opinions. As the New York Post editorial board’s headline on that framed it on 12.14.2021: “Facebook admits the truth: ‘Fact checks’ are really just (lefty) opinion” Those editors said in part: “That’s thanks to a lawsuit brought by celebrated journalist John Stossel, which has exposed the left’s supposed battle against  “misinformation” as a farce. Stossel posted a pair of videos that touched the third rail of liberal politics — climate change.”

There is a potentially historic 2024 primaries for both Democrats and Republicans which may be coming into focus. If Robert F. Kennedy Jr., J.D., (D) seriously runs for the Democratic Presidential nomination, as he has signaled he might, it could bring a unique perspective to that party’s debates that have been lacking in recent years. Kennedy is a liberal, from the political left. But he accepts some notions his party has made centerpieces while rejecting others. Like Kennedy’s views or not, he doesn’t mind ‘bringing it’ against the big donors behind Democratic politics.

Coming Clash of Corporate and Political Titans?

Some on the right hope that Governor Ron DeSantis (FL-R) and others will essentially bow out and surrender the field to deposed President Donald J. Trump (R). Well run campaigns by serious candidates that stops short of ‘nuking’ the party’s eventual nominee could be useful for both major parties, and more importantly, for voters.

MHProNews has noted that there is a case to be made that some 70 percent (+/-) of voters could be united on an agenda that would benefit the vast majority of Americans and would also benefit manufactured housing by providing opportunities for affordable home ownership seekers.


Regrettably, media has long had an agenda. Frankly, we do too. But ours is rather upfront and has been from our earliest days of publishing. MHProNews/MHLivingNews are pro-manufactured housing. We are pro-sustainable and ethically driven manufactured home industry growth. We editorially believe in the product while insisting that consumers and residents must be treated fairly and honestly. That editorial viewpoint is not so different than the stated position of prior MHI president Chris Stinebert.



Since Loss of Stinebert at Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) ‘Empowered F-cking Greedy, Selfish Leaders of Companies to Make MHI a Tool for Themselves’-plus MHVille Markets Update

It is our evidence-based editorial perspective that MHARR has been consistent and sincere in their efforts. It is our fact- and evidence based conviction that MHI has been dominated by a few big brands that despite their claims are focused on industry consolidation. That drive toward consolidation helps explain several of the oddities that exist in MHVille in the 21st century.

The fact that MHI corporate and nonprofit staff leaders and their mouthpieces won’t discuss or debate their performance publicly ought to speak volumes to thinking professionals. For those who don’t yet look at the facts and evidence, there is still time to look anew.

For investors, this MHVille scenario is arguably similar in effect to the ESG debate that is growing in America.  Meaning, are investors in some of the dominating MHI brand connected equities interests being properly pursued by corporate leaders?

McCarthy’s article is one of numerous possible examples of how media bias has shifted the understanding of reality for literally tens of millions of Americans. That ability to influence perceptions is part of the dynamic that explains why manufactured housing is underperforming.
