If anyone still believes the main stream media in America is objective and investigative look no further. Remember when the U.S. media blamed Russia for attacking poor Georgia even after Saakashvili admitted that his country started the war? LOL! Now, almost a million people in Washington D.C. last Saturday were ignored if not falsely reported by the press and Obama, who was out riding his bicycle.
People of faith met at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial last Saturday August 28. Martin Luther King’s niece, Alveda King was there to quiet the media’s chant of “racism” against her white friends.
Alveda King proclaimed, “If Uncle Martin could be here today … he would surely remind us that as brothers and sisters, united by one blood in one single race, the human race, we are called to honor God and to love each other.” She further said the purpose of the rally was “to focus on honor and on the content of our character, and not the color of our skin,” echoing the words of her uncle’s famous speech of 1963.
I remember Dr. King saying that too. “Character” was more important. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Has the press forgotten Dr. King??? Is the main stream media ignorant, stupid, or on drugs? Do they have a secret agenda or are they just lazy? Sorry to say, most university students breeze through their courses drinking and partying. Most profesors are liberal and so they pass liberal students.
Wait a minute! What’s a liberal? Well, basically, anyone who opposes any of the 10 Commandments God gave us. Lest we forget the 2 greatest, Christ said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.” So, if you encounter someone who opposes one or all, then they are a liberal in the in the eyes of the conservatives. Especially those conservatives who came to DC last Saturday.
Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union based in Washington, D.C., said, “It felt great to be up there with all these wonderful leaders, the black pro-life leaders from all over the country,” Gardner said. “I was extremely proud of my sister in Christ and my dear friend, Dr. Alveda King. … Seeing her walk out where her uncle and her father were 47 years ago – my eyes welled up, and I had a lump in my throat, because we have come a really long way.”,
They had a good, decent and non-violent rally that was not embraced by the media. Why?
The people left the place clean. You’ll never see that at an Obama rally. They were all God fearing people who believe family is more important. They agreed with the main spokesman, Glenn Beck, that the nation had to return back to God. They all remember their American history and what the founding Fathers said.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”–John Adams; “Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered… do we imagine we no longer need His assistance?” – Benjamin Franklin; “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” – Thomas Jefferson ; “ It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible.” – George Washington.
If a tree falls and no one is there to listen, does it still make a sound??? In the eyes of the media, unless you are them , you’re no one. “No one” has no voice in the world. Well, liberal Yahoo.com had nothing to say about the rally. MSNBC barely mentioned it. NBC gave more value to Al Sharpton (not related to Martin Luther King) who had a counter rally at a high school instead of the near million outside.
As usual, the media always says there were “thousands” so we can think maybe 1000 or 2000 instead of the actual 750,000 plus. Funny how the media plays with words. ABC confirmed Alveda King but misquoted her regarding racism. ABC also said it was a smaller crowd. CNN and CBS ignored Alveda King. while showing only white faces on the internet and tv.
It is true that most of the people at the rally were white because most of America is white. It is a fact . It does not mean that most whites are racists. Especially when there are minorities there. People forget that the Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act in the 60’s. Yes, that’s the party of the Clintons and Obama. Screaming “racism” instead of creating unity under God. Democrats and the media promote racial conflict and ignore the truth. Yes, most of the media are Democrats.
The media always ignores conservative Blacks, Hispanics and Asians. I bet you never heard of Alan Keyes who ran as a black Republican for president twice. He was too smart for BET (Black Entertainment Television) during a debate and no one else would debate him because of his sharp tongue that cuts to the truth. He had confronted Obama for the Senate seat in Illinois but the media ignored Keyes. In other words, Obama got the positive exposure he needed to win the Senate. The media helped him again to win the presidency.
I remember the fickle attitude of the press when Alexander Solzhenitsyn came to America. They loved him until he spoke. Solzhenitsyn’s speech at Harvard on June 8, 1978 can still ring true today.
“The press too, of course, enjoys the widest freedom. (I shall be using the word press to include all media). But what sort of use does it make of this freedom?
Here again, the main concern is not to infringe the letter of the law. There is no moral responsibility for deformation or disproportion. What sort of responsibility does a journalist have to his readers, or to history? If they have misled public opinion or the government by inaccurate information or wrong conclusions, do we know of any cases of public recognition and rectification of such mistakes by the same journalist or the same newspaper? No, it does not happen, because it would damage sales. A nation may be the victim of such a mistake, but the journalist always gets away with it. One may safely assume that he will start writing the opposite with renewed self-assurance.
Because instant and credible information has to be given, it becomes necessary to resort to guesswork, rumors and suppositions to fill in the voids, and none of them will ever be rectified, they will stay on in the readers’ memory. How many hasty, immature, superficial and misleading judgments are expressed every day, confusing readers, without any verification. The press can both simulate public opinion and miseducate it. Thus we may see terrorists heroized, or secret matters, pertaining to one’s nation’s defense, publicly revealed, or we may witness shameless intrusion on the privacy of well-known people under the slogan: “everyone is entitled to know everything.” But this is a false slogan, characteristic of a false era: people also have the right not to know, and it is a much more valuable one. The right not to have their divine souls stuffed with gossip, nonsense, vain talk. A person who works and leads a meaningful life does not need this excessive burdening flow of information.
Hastiness and superficiality are the psychic disease of the 20th century and more than anywhere else this disease is reflected in the press. In-depth analysis of a problem is anathema to the press. It stops at sensational formulas.
Such as it is, however, the press has become the greatest power within the Western countries, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then like to ask: by what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible? In the communist East a journalist is frankly appointed as a state official. But who has granted Western journalists their power, for how long a time and with what prerogatives? “
Who the hell does the press answer too??? No one. Who controls them? No one. What can stop the press propaganda machine? No one. Remember what I said earlier about “no one” ??? ‘In the eyes of the media, unless you are them , you’re no one. “No one” has no voice in the world’.
“No one” is us. If we ignore the press by not watching them and not reading their paper , then the press will have to change for the better or they will perish. Our voices can rarely be heard but when the silent majority acts, they listen. When the herd stampedes, the cowboys can do nothing but watch and curse.
All the old newspapers and TV news channels are suffering. All except for Fox News. People are tired of the same old bias and propaganda. They only have one place to go on TV.
(Update: Soros harpooned his white whale! Ahab would be proud. Soros got the goods on Fox News’ owner Murdoch so Fox is now a part of the MSM. Search your computer for the truth on the internet. You are now officially smarter than anyone on TV. Congratulations!!!)
The Nielsen news ratings for August 27 :
Fox News – 972,000 viewers
CNN – 311,000 viewers
MSNBC – 395,000 viewers
CNBC – 166,000 viewers
HLN – 260,000 viewers
July showed everyone but Fox News dropped from last year. “As usual, Fox news channel held a commanding lead over its cable news competition in July. The network had more total viewers than CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in primetime, averaging 1.85M (CNN+HLN+MSNBC= 1.66M).” – mediabistro.com
I did not include Fox News in the media bias. They are the new kids on the block in comparison to others like ABC, CBS and others. One of their slogans is , “We report, you decide”. They do mostly that. However, they did not even come close to reporting the truth when Georgia last attacked. They still sensationalize every news piece and I give them a C+ for investigative reporting. They ask only half the questions I would ask.
Fox News was fair to the rally last Thursday. They seem biased to the liberal only because Fox reports things the liberal doesn’t want us to know. Things like God and truth. A liberal screams and runs away from the mention of God like a vampire runs from light. Does that mean liberals (most media) are possessed by the devil??? Perhaps. They sure do grunt and protest vehemently like a banshee when God is mentioned.
Fox News has allowed Glenn Beck to have his say on a show they gave him long ago. Beck admits he us just another guy and is trying to find the truth in politics. He does ok but only half of what I would do. At least no deception there. He says he is not a news guy and it shows. O’Reilly is another opinionated commentary show. People either hate or like him. He does a great job exposing judges who release child molesters. Again, he admits he is commentary. Which leads me to say they should do more objective and investigative reporting. Less hype.
When people pray , things change. Glenn Beck is not an A1 newsman but he brought people together who were tired of the propaganda being forced fed to them for the past 40 years. A good man bears good fruit. We saw the fruit of his work last Saturday.
So, is the main stream media ignorant, stupid, or on drugs? Do they have a secret agenda or are they just lazy? Who cares!!! America is waking up through the chaos it sees upon the land. That is what is more important. I think Solzhenitsyn would be glad to see a million people reaching out to God.
“The entire 20th century is being sucked into the vortex of atheism and self-destruction…We can only reach with determination for the warm hand of God . .. There is nothing else to cling to in the landslide.” – Solzhenitsyn
For those who are convinced that a government needs no God they should look at the history of the Soviet Union and read Solzhenitsyn.
What is still true today: “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” –William Penn
