'SLANTED' ABC TAKES THE HEAT (ABC News tells its reporters to go after Bush)
NY Post ^ | 10/9/04 | Deborah Orin

Posted on 10/09/2004 1:04:02 AM PDT by Cableguy

ABC News was under fire last night after an internal memo surfaced suggesting President Bush should be held more accountable for his statements than John Kerry.

The memo to staffers from the network's powerful political director, Marc Halperin, noted that while both campaigns are distorting the truth, Kerry's bending of the facts shouldn't be hit as hard.

"Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win," Halperin wrote.

But "the current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done," Halperin added.

Halperin further advised the ABC staff to keep that in mind when reporting.

"We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides 'equally' accountable when the facts don't warrant that," the memo continued.

"It's up to Kerry to defend himself, of course. But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying to serve the public interest, now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right."

A spokesman for ABC news insisted "we are not interested in taking sides, we are only interested in getting at the truth."

Halperin plays a mostly behind-the-scenes role at ABC, and is known as the father of "The Note," a daily political memo that is read by thousands of D.C. insiders, political players and journalists.

Looks like ABC is headed right into the cavern of irrelevance right behind See-BS.

Kerry lies and has confessed to war crimes, but it's not central to his efforts to win. Sho nuff! Maybe shoplifting would help.

This is exactly why the Democratic Party has become the Party of liars and cheats. The stupid press assumes or presents stories that every Republican is lying like Richard Nixon, and every Democratic candidate is always telling the truth.

Now, Republicans have even their truthful statements twisted so much they sound like lies.

The effect of this is that it has become easy for liars to take over and control the Democratic Party. It is or has begun to destroy the party from the inside.

I wrote emails yesterday, even called and talked to the President of ABC's secretary.

She knew why I was calling. Was polite, took my name and number.

Basically I told her I didn't need anybody to help me "evaluate" the news...I had ears and eyes. And that it was not in the "public interest" to do so, nor was it "the right thing" for a news organization to go beyond reporting the news and start trying to influence the electorate.

Well, excuuuuuuuse me, but, IMHO, this is the philosophy of genuine fascists. Halperin openly admits that Kerry distorts, takes things out of context, and makes mistakes all of the time. Then he says that while Kerry should defend himself, it's up to ABC to, in essence, explain to you stupid cows what he really said. BECAUSE IT'S IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST! Good heavens - to ABC the American people must be monumentally stupid!

Maybe other honest Democrats will wake up today.

"Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win," Halperin wrote.

So when I turned on C-SPAN during the Dems' primary/caucus season and saw Kerry telling Iowa voters that Bush had just given an advocate of cross-burning a recess appointment to the federal bench, Kerry was just saying that for kicks - not in an effort to win???

Kerry intentionally distorted Judge Pickering's role in a case involving cross-burning. In other words, Kerry went out of his way to accuse both Bush and Pickering of being racists, even though there's absolutely no evidence to support that. To the suits at ABC, I guess that's no big deal.

A spokesman for ABC news insisted "we are not interested in taking sides, we are only interested in getting at the truth."

In the Bizarro world of the Media Wing of the Democratic Party, that isn't necessarily a denial of their slant towards Kerry. Note the key passage in Halperin's email:


"It's up to Kerry to defend himself, of course. But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying to serve the public interest, now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right."

My message to Halperin and the other cheer leaders for the Democrat Party would be this:

If you want to help the Democrat Party, and I mean if you REALLY want to help it, you must make it plain to its political candidates that they are on their own from now on. It's up to them, no you, to form viable political philosophies, and it's up to them, not you, to coherently explain it to the public. Make it plain that their play time is over, and has been over for some time now, and they must "put away the things of their youth," and finally accept adulthood, and think, speak, and behave accordingly.

You left the Dems after Thomas' confirmation hearings?

It wasn't until NOW made excuses for Clinton that I seriously doubted the wisdom of my membership in the Dem Party...and revelations about the 'rentals' of Lincoln's Bedroom that pushed me away, forever. Looking at the hysterical pack of weirdos, thugs and prevaricators that the Democratic Party has become, I can say that my defection came not a moment too soon. And to think that I used to believe that those who complained about 'liberal media' were paranoid rednecks. I'm so glad I woke up!

I left the Democratic party when I saw the media distort their reports of the Confirmation Hearings for Clarence Thomas. I watched the hearings carefully and realized MSM was lying to help the Democrats.

I was betwixt and between right and left at that time. Bush 41's nomination of Clarence Thomas and Thomas' subsequent vilification was my first major experience seeing the way black people who weren't Democrats weren't really thought of having earned the right to call themselves black. Leon Higginbotham acted as though the late Thurgood Marshall's slot on the court was his birthright, and Cornel West said that he wanted a black man to replace Marshall, but not "the wrong black man." That made me think.

Weeks earlier, I had read a Jack Anderson column in which he said that the National Organization for Women had hired staffers to call everyone that had ever worked with Thomas, digging for something to "Bork" him with. I took it with a grain of salt, but between the Friday that was supposed to be the last day of the Senate hearings on Thomas and his vote the following week, Anita Hill was dragged kicking and screaming into the open by Nina Totenberg and Cokie Roberts (then working for NPR).

The way that the news coverage painted Thomas as guilty until proven innocent disgusted me. Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, and Howard Metzenbaum were treated as heroes, while John Danforth and Orrin Hatch were portrayed at grasping for straws to protect Thomas. For NBC News, Tom Brokaw actually had Catherine MacKinnon beside him as a expert commentator. She believed Anita Hill, and made no attempt to be objective.

By the way, while everyone was hot and bothered about Thomas, Antonin Scalia, every modern liberal's least favorite Supreme, just barely squeaked through the confirmation process with a UNANIMOUS vote. You don't hear many of those tenured Demos remind you that they voted to confirm Scalia, do you?

I remember back in '91 at the time of the first Gulf War. Numerous people were saying that the MSM was liberal and bias, but people didn't want to hear it, or didn't want to believe it, including Rush Limbaugh. It took some time for even Rush to realize just how left and bias they are and have been for years. I was convinced of it, on my own, without anyone having to tell me, back in the 80's one day. I listened to President Reagan give a speech. Then the pundits came on to tell me what he had just said. I told my father in law...what I just heard President Reagan say is not what these guys are saying he said. Am I stupid or what??? My father-in-law just grinned, said figure it out sweetie pie. I did....and I have not paid any attention to those mouth pieces since.

We have such a wonderful opportunity here to provide accurate, meaningful information. It is very exciting.

And if while we are at it, we can put those jokers out of business.....all the more fun:)

Oh Jesus - Could you imagine if President Bush used THAT statement in the next debate? LOL - Ladies and gentlemen, even ABC, a liberal new organization if EVER there was one says that John Kerry "distorts, takes out of context, and makes mistakes all the time..." And what a GREAT ad that would be for the Republican Party (Or a 527 group!)

Kudos to the NT Post,to FreeRepublic and possibly to the Washington Times. The MSM has been cookin' the news, surprize, surprize. The astonihing arrogance that they think they must help the LITTLE people understand. These frauds need a good butt kickin'. Wakeup America this is nothing less than Pravda. The friendly Communist are living right next door and appear on your TV screens everyday. ps: did anyone notice that Peter Jennings looked like death warmed over last night or maybe I just haven't seen his ugly mug for some time.

It's about the time I bailed, too. Keep in mind, I was a major liberal. I supported Jesse Jackson in a presidential primary. I was a big Al Gore fan. I was in college. I was taught liberal ideals. But as I started watching those confirmation hearings, and the way Biden presided over them, my eyes suddenly opened. I finally saw the hypocrisy they shovel out on a daily basis. And to hear the MSMs take on what I was watching was unbelievable. It was 180 degrees out of whack. It was frightening. I found a Rush a year later, and I felt total relief that there was somebody in the media who saw what I saw.

The monumental distortions of the left wing television networks is not only a litany of lies, it has deeply divided our nation. If there is another civil war or dividing up of the U.S. into two or more nations, it will be the fault of the mass media who have spoon-fed communist propaganda. I know people who still rely upon the network news and they have an irrational hatred of Republicans and of Bush in particular.

I voted for a Dumbcrat one time in my life....my very first time to vote I voted for that big-eared turd Lyndon Johnson..I was in college at the time. That is no excuse for being stupid, but I was young and dumb at the time. Had me and a bunch of others voted for Goldwater we wouldn't have to listen to lurch BS about his big combat tour and his hero status. Also I wouldn't be a member of the VFW because Goldwater would have taken care of business and Vietnam would have been in the win column long before I spent a tour there.

Yes. It was during the Reagan years, when I saw how they treated President Reagan that I first became leery of the media. It's been downhill all the way since then and they still think they are Democrat kingmakers to this day. They put the lie to their claim of unbiased "journalism", and cynically think not many people are as smart as they are so they have to tell them.

The dim candidates make exaggerated claims and statements because they know the MSM is not going to call them on it. The MSM distorts the News not by what they say but by what the OMIT.
Iraq is a classic example.
Our soldiers, aside from security, are working like dogs helping to rebuild the infrastructure in Iraq.
There are literally hundreds if not thousands of stories of our soldiers building water plants, sewage plants, electric power, pipelines, passing out food, rebuilding homes, and on and on.
I have not seen one, not one, 'good' story from the MSM.

That was when Dan Rather and I parted company.

Mr. Rather was very critical of a Reagan speech before the Pres. had delivered it!

The speech was a day or two prior to our rescue mission in Greneda.(the speech had nothing to do with the rescue)

I thought that was pretty chickensh__.

I grew up in Chicago under the first mayor Daley. It settled in me a deep-ingrained distaste for everything democrat. I had to register as a democrat while living there. Everyone knew that if you called the Alderman about a problem and they checked your registration and found out that you were a republican you would never even hear from them. Democrat machines are one of the most destructive entities on earth.

I was intrigued when I read your "conversion" story. I agree with your comments about late-comers, even Limbaugh. I would relate that I realized, since my days in middle school in the 1960s, that I was being spoon-fed Marxist doctrine by the public school teachers. I began to view my education with a critical eye as I went through high school, seeing how every subject and interest under the sun was filtered through a leftist lens. In college, I finally accepted that the whole world has been complicit with the advance of Marxist/communism/atheism, at all levels, everywhere. The leftist bias of the MSM is something I've watched since the days of Commie Cronkite. These things are not new. What is new is that many people are waking up to this "vast left-wing conspiracy" and finally refusing to eat their swill unadulterated.

I hadn't considered the Soros influence but it is an intriguing thought. If I had a shred of confidence in the integrity of the MSM I wouldn't be making this post. However, this election coverage has just about convinced me that there is no truthfulness nor unbiased reporting to be found in the MSM and I know that money is a powerful lure for those with no moral values.

After Fox's shameful performance last nite, I went to bed so disturbed. It seems the entire media may be corrupted beyond what I thought.

The first use of the media I remember was during the Goldwater candidancy. When he had that famous quote on extremism, I absolutely agreed with him. And the press ran with it and destroyed him. I was amazed.

After reading the Helprin note, it occurs to me that they are only evenhanded when dealing with the terrorists and us. Thus the terrorists are called insurgents, etc. They have a moral equivalence of fascism and our form of government.

Fox is no different than any other network, regardless of the commercial position they take as the "voice of the right". The majority of the players, that is, the producers, the writers, the technicians, the commentators, et.al. are products of the "vast left-wing conspiracy" that is our world. Why expect anything different? Fox has just begun to reveal the truth about its own smarmy leftism in an unmistakeable way to its viewers. Surprise, surprise!

IIRC, there was a brief report a few weeks ago that Indymedia
(Owned by Soros) and CBS were in negotiations to share resources, Indymedia has already been reported to be the farm team for CBS.

Then there was a report yesterday that the Indymedia servers in the UK (Rackspace) were seized by the FBI. The *reasons* put forth by the left were all along the lines of *government supression*. I also read speculation here that there were jihadi sites that used Rackspace.

Why would the left allow a fascist billionaire to get by without one word of expose? It frightens me more than the union thugs and warm body street army of the left.
