Betrayal By The Media

April 11, 2016

I’ve mentioned on several occasions how the media has manipulated public opinion for decades. They’ve covered up treasonous acts committed by Barack Obama and many others within his administration. We can include in the count the massive cover up regarding 9/11/2001. But why should 3,000 innocent people count to the media when the government is more than willing to sacrifice them? It’s amazing what people are getting away with right now. However mostly we have the media to blame for the continued nefarious acts committed by our elected officials. Anyway, there’s no sense in me getting into a rant about it. I’ll let this guy over at American Thinker tell it like it is …

Obama’s Willing Executioners in the Media

Some of the most disturbing aspects of the times in which we are living include the utter corruption of the mass print and broadcast media and the lack of awareness of this fact by a large portion of the public.

It seems that most Americans operate on the assumption that the media is making a good-faith, if imperfect, effort at objectively informing its audience.  That so few are genuinely aware of the outrageous manipulation of public opinion now taking place is the single greatest threat to the republic, to the extent that we can even say that our republic still exists.  A glaring example of this would be the treatment of Nixon 42 years ago over Watergate compared with the treatment of Obama today over any one of several far worse scandals.

It was recently reported in the WSJ that Obama used the NSA to spy on Congress during the deliberations related to the Iran nuclear deal.  It was reported on at one time, but this story has now disappeared completely from media coverage.  Consider the implications.

In the former case, Nixon apparently directed or sat by and knowingly let his immediate subordinates direct a third-rate burglary of the campaign headquarters of an election opponent.  In the latter case, Obama authorized one of the most sophisticated intelligence-gathering organizations in the world to spy on American legislators, en masse, in pursuit of the most important – and egregiously flawed – international agreement impacting American national security and world stability – namely, with the chief sponsor of international terrorism: the Islamic Republic of Iran.

This is a thousand times worse than Watergate!  Where is the media?  Where are today’s equivalents of Woodward and Bernstein?  The media doesn’t focus on this outrage at all, so to the overwhelming majority of the public, it is as though this never even happened.  And this is only one of several comparable scandals we could name.

Another case of the selective focus of our mass media took place in 2009.  Barack Hussein Obama said publicly that the U.S. is “not a Christian nation” and that America is “one of the world’s foremost Muslim countries.”

These statements amount to utter lunacy in a country in which at least 70% self-identify as Christians, where Christian holidays are official national holidays, and where Muslims number, at most, three to four million out of a population of over 330 million.  This provoked not even a whimper of incredulity by the mass media.  Then, in 2012, during an unintentional “open mic” moment, we overheard Obama making assurances to Russian president Medvedev that once he was able to get past the election, he would have “more flexibility.”

Here we have a sitting U.S. president apparently ready to make some huge concession to America’s most important major power rival on the world stage, a concession so drastic that it apparently couldn’t even be revealed until after the election.  And the media did not hound him over this.

Could one imagine a President Nixon, or a President Reagan, making such a statement during arms control negotiations with the USSR and the media simply giving it a pass?  But that Donald Trump, he says such “crazy” things…and that Ted Cruz, he’s a “religious fanatic.”  Why! just look at all the terrible things Trump and Cruz say about one another.

The media focus is entirely on setting the major GOP candidates against each other, in order to tarnish their images – letting the candidates themselves do the actual tarnishing, while not giving even a fraction of their coverage to the Democratic contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders or their actual qualifications to be president.

How many journalists in the mass media have focused on the fact that despite having held positions such as senator from New York and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton has not even one major positive accomplishment she can name?

And what about Hillary and Bill Clinton’s foundation, which has amounted to little more than a money-laundering, influence-peddling racket aimed at amassing a vast campaign war chest funded by numerous foreign interests?  Or that Hillary’s amply documented mishandling of highly classified information likely represents the greatest breach of trust by a cabinet-level government official in U.S. history?

    Given the fact that my previous post demonstrates how we Americans are being ignored by the powers that be, see this.
    This video is an example of how this Country has been forced to succumb to the elites in WDC.
    Americans are strong hard working individuals who are becoming outraged at how the elites are treating us.
    Our companies are leaving the Country.
    Trump may be brash and sometimes offensive, but the PC that is currently being promoted both by the politicians and the media has worn very thin, and we are tired of it.

    I know the media is a wholly-owned subsidiary of its’ Wall Street masters …. has been for quite some time now … will be for the forseeable future.

    As I was looking at the road sign in the second video here, the video entitled, “Die Whitey Die” I noted the words, Garbutt” on the sign and it brought something else to mind … something entirely unrelated buy something I am sure not too many Americans know.

    What am I talking about?

    I am talking about the reason Muslims refuse to eat or shake hands with their left hand. If you don’t know the answer you should look it up and I am not going to tell you here because it is utterly too disgusting for words. …. http://www.barenakedislam.com/2015/11/27/muslim-values-why-muslims-like-to-use-their-left-hand-to-shake-hands-with-you-unbelievers/

    Both you and John have more life experience than I; even in the 60’s “father” Cronkite wasn’t nearly as truthful as we had imagined.
    The digital age has negated any real investigative reporting; we will live to see the demise of print media, and Orwell’s nightmare vision will become very real. We share the blame, because most of us out there just hopped on the proverbial bandwagon without questioning any of it.

    The media today is no longer the media. It’s a bunch of kids educated through the liberal college system, trained to report anyone not liberal as “the bad guy.” There is no longer any news, per se. It is about who is maintaining the liberal standards and who is not. If a liberal does something, well then it must be okay because a liberal did it. If a conservative were to do the exact same thing, then it would be bad by virtue of the fact that a conservative did it. Their objectivity, if they ever really had any, has been corrupted.
