“Without the press [..] the government is no longer accountable to the people. The press is therefore of the utmost importance in a representative democracy.” ~ Journalism in the Digital Age

Many of us remember when Walter Cronkite (anchorman for the CBS Evening News) was billed as “America’s most trusted news man.” For years, many of us bought that line and still today there are some “oldsters” that believe “Uncle Walt” was True Blue. A quick look at Media Research Center should take that out-dated idea out of any critical thinkers brain. As history shows, “Walt” was not Mr. True Blue.. (right down the middle of the political spectrum in his reporting).. he was so far to the Liberal Left you would get a kink in your neck trying to turn your head that far.
According to a good friend of TLB (in MS Media) Cronkite was heard to say, in an unguarded moment, “Censorship is not done by changing the content of the story… it is done by not reporting the story in the first place.” A policy that Cronkite’s CBS replacement Dan Rather would keep in place during his years on the Evening News.
Gone are the days when MS would pretend to be the Unbiased, Hold their feet to the Fire, 4th Estate. Today the realty is, MS Media has become a “lap dog” for the Global Power Elite. There are some exceptions where individual reporters are swimming against the current of Corporate News Policies, such as some at FOX and a scattered hand full of others in broadcast and print. Even what we see and hear from these sources are tempered by management and advertiser pressures. The only reason some objective reporting (the muzzle is not too tight) is allowed is the News Personalities popularity with the audience. (Ratings… follow the $$)
Today MS Media is lock-step with The Clinton machine. Consider Hillary and the DNC do not deny the authenticity of released emails from WikiLeaks, they attack Russia for releasing them as does their MS lap dogs.
Uncle “Walt” is dead and so is Main Stream Media. (RE)
WikiLeaks Unmasks the Collusion between CNN and the Democratic National Committee
Perhaps the greatest service rendered to us in the recent WikiLeaks data dumps of the Democratic National Committee’s emails (along with the emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta) is that it finally unmasked the partnership between the Democrat Party and the main stream media.
For years we on the right have argued that the media was biased and that they often seemed to have two very different standards for Republicans and Democrats. We’ve conducted studies to prove that Democrats get more positive airtime and Republicans get more negative airtime. We’ve literally counted the seconds of free campaign airtime they give to their favorite Democrats and shown how it dwarfs the airtime given to Republican candidates. Over and over again we’ve proven that the media was biased, but they’ve always laughed us off arguing that we’re simply paranoid.
Thanks to WikiLeaks the veneer of an unbiased media is gone and all that remains is the truth – the media colludes with the Democrat Party to stifle democracy in America.
One leak in particular proves the point of media collusion perfectly, as Bret Baier from Fox News explains:
This deals with Donna Brazile, now the interim DNC chair. Previously the vice chair, she was also an analyst at CNN. She writes to Jen Palmieri, the communications director: “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” This is one day in advance of the CNN town hall with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. “Here’s one that worries me about HRC.” And then she goes on to list on of the questions that was provided by one of the people at the town hall, and then he asked this question of Hillary Clinton.
Later, Baier’s colleague James Rosen, proving that DNC chair Donna Brazile was lying about her part in cheating the democratic process and showing that the media is most assuredly on Team Hillary.
The media is not on our side, folks. They no longer care about truth or justice, they simply serve their masters on the left. Do yourselves, and your nation, a favor and stop listening to the drivel that the media is peddling.
In yet another shocking case of media malpractice, the corrupt media cronies at NBC seem to be playing favorites… again!
More from Onan Coca
Veteran reporter Michael Isikoff was one of NBC’s most important employees some 20-years ago when he was one of the first to break the Monica Lewinsky story wide open. He’s now admonishing his former employer for doing their best to skew the 2016 election by refusing to report the news fairly.
On the heels of the revelation that NBC was holding the Donald Trump/Billy Bush “soap opera” tapes in an effort to deliver the most damage possible to Trump’s election hopes, Isikoff is dropping another bomb on NBC. Isikoff says that NBC is also hiding evidence that could do severe damage to Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes!
Michael Isikoff, who was a leading reporter during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, said in a Thursday discussion that NBC should release a 17-year-old tape of an interview that it conducted with Broaddrick. Broaddrick has long claimed that the interview that NBC aired edited out her claim that Hillary Clinton was involved in quashing Broaddrick’s rape claims.
“NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Myers interview,” Isikoff said during an online discussion onSidewire.com. “NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview. (AS long as they’re now culling their archives!)”
Isikoff worked as a national correspondent for NBC from 2010 to 2014. He says that NBC reporter Lisa Myers has confirmed Broaddrick’s claim that NBC edited out references that could have been damaging to Hillary Clinton.
“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run,” Isikoff said. “Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then—and NBC chose to cut it out.”
NBC seems to be working very hard to protect Hillary Clinton while simultaneously delivering as much damage as possible to Donald Trump. They have no problem airing the unsubstantiated allegations that Donald Trump committed sexual assault, but they refuse to discuss the allegations that Hillary Clinton was involved in the effort to silence Bill Clinton’s victims. Why? Because the mainstream media in America is beholden to Clinton and the Democrat Party. In fact, the groups are actually all one in the same, and the media would never purposefully do anything to damage Hillary Clinton’s political future.
The sad truth is… journalism in America is dead.
