State Run Media:
Why is it that if you believe in the Constitution, want the government to follow the Constitution, not pass laws that are un-Constitutional, and in the words of Representative Walt Minnick, Idaho decide it is acceptable by saying, “That is what the Supreme Court is for” are, for some reason labeled “extremist”. But, if you are the President of the United States, a Marxist, a Muslim, and not all that bright when it comes to making unscripted remarks, like asking the American public to not leap to conclusions when a radical Muslim kills thirteen people and wounds thirty seven more, after being investigated for making homicide bombing threats, and espousing jihad against your employer, the US Army, you are the voice of reason. Why? Is it due to a climate of political correctness or is there more to it than that?
While political correctness has risen from the Alinsky style attacks of the leftists in America, it is merely a nuisance in this instance. The reality of the situation is such that the state run media, or main stream media if you will, controls what a vast majority of America sees. If you have cable or a satellite dish, you have choice in news programming. If you have an antenna in the air, you are stuck with the state run media of ABC, CBS and NBC. The state run media is not the news media of integrity and facts. There are no real journalists to be found on the news any longer. The news providers are entertainers, who offer you their perspective on the news, by not presenting the facts, but by carefully showing you what they want you to see, combined with the language of leading you towards their conclusion.
Keep in mind that there are opinion shows on all news networks and if identified as an opinion show, there is nothing wrong with that, as long as they are honest. The problem is when the news shows offer opinion by slanting what the viewers see, through the use of altered or limited imagery and language that is leading and coercive. Identifying the problem is easy. None of the state run media, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, Headline News and NPR cut out the first couple minutes of B. Hussein Obama’s speech about the Ft. Hood terrorist attack, as it made Obama look insensitive and appear to be the man-child that he is. The real problem comes in how to deal with it.
Aside from getting your news from alternative sources, I urge all Americans who believe they are smart enough to make up their own minds, form their own opinions and act on them, to boycott all of the state run media stations and newspapers, all of the time. We must also call them what they are: State Run Media. Organize local protests of your media outlets, be visible, be vocal and make sure people know why you are there. Let’s face it, the state run media will not report it. Freedom of the press comes with an obligation to report the facts, unbiased. It is a moral and ethical violation for journalists and editors to do less and we must call them on it every time.
