Pat Caddell: The Media Has Become A Threat To Democracy

Pat Caddell, former political adviser to Jimmy Carter, gave a speech to the folks over at Accuracy in Media yesterday, and angrily called out the media for their lies and distortions. This is a short compilation of his speech. Below it is the full speech. Worth. Every. Minute.

TOPICS: Conspiracy; Politics; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: enemedia; fifthcolumn; journalists4obama; media; msm; obama; presstitutes; romney
Remember, he's a DEMOCRATIC pollster and political handler. Not some "nut-job, right-wing, tea-bagger rethuglican, crazy crypto-Nazi" that they can write off. Hope he doesn't have a "Breitbart/Vince Foster" or a made-up scandal.
It’s been that way since Watergate.

( I won't be reconstructed and I do not give a damn.)
he seems to be one of the older, more decent Democrats. Kinda like a Zell Miller old school maybe.

I agree.....btw, I sure miss Zell.
I don’t agree with all of Mr. Cadell’s opinions. But he is sincere and objective. Thank goodnes for men of Cadells’ calibre. Too bad more pubbies aren’t speaking up.

I’ve been saying this since the 80’s too and it was cemented in 1992.

I even sent this to some of my lib friends. IMO, this is the most important issue of our time. Thanks much for posting.

(Democrats lie because they must.)
Tremendous speech. Full speech needs to be watched including the Q&A at the end.
Great speech. Absolutely true. As per my tagline, the 4th Estate truly has become a 5th Column.

Its been that way since Watergate.
Add about 30 years before, and you’d be right. Bob Taft and Joe McCarthy, the latter in spades, had it much worse than Romney. And the persecution of RMN began with his HISS prosecution, not his loss to JFK. If you’re unapologetically anti-antiAmerican, you’re not going to be covered fairly by the media.

Pat appears to be one of the few democrats that get it. The MSM is selling out it’s own freedom along with everyone else’s.

I also sent this to a number of friends and relatives who need to hear this. I stressed Caddell’s background so they would know it’s coming from someone “on the other side.” I’ll try to keep this bumped so other Freepers will get the idea. Perhaps there’s a way to make it go viral!

I made time in my busy schedule this morning to watch the 26 minute version. I highly recommend it.
Put it on Facebook, remind people that without the media Bambi wouldn’t even get 40% of the vote, plus this guy was once a democrat who worked for Carter.

Sorry it took so long to respond. I don’t do “social media.” Thanks for the suggestion.
