Tom Brokaw: "It's frightening, frankly."
(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.tv ...
Someone needs to do a picture of SEWAGE coming out of certain “journalists” mouths or pens.....
I am pretty certain that truth is frightening to Brokaw, he makes a living making up his own truth.
Frankly, Dimbulb Tom, You can’t spin You Tube. He said it, He owns those words, period.
The only thing frightening tom and his ilk is the fact that they cannot hide this truth, video and audio exists.
Brokaw......”you need to vett information”,,,,yep, tell that to obama pal.
These types of comments must be the preface to some Communist type attempts by these a**clowns to control content on the Internet.
"And what about that internet? People having opinions, what's so good about that? Look I have a paperclip on my desk!"
What’s frightening, Tom? The fact that we are able to GOOGLE a person’s past and play VIDEO clips of their actual words?! Or the fact that we are able to dig up past quotes and signed petitions and officially-held seats on boards of questionable associations?! You cannot operate in the dark any longer, Tom. Does that frighten you?
Well, gee, Tom. Why didn’t you responsible journalists shed the light of truth on the Van Jones matter by debunking all of these ridiculous right-wing claims? And why don’t you ask left-wing politicians which of Van Jones’ statements they agree with, so that they can distance themselves from him?
They’re terrified to find they’re losing their control over what information reaches a wide audience.
Hey, Brokaw! It’s pretty simple, really. Pay close attention: If it wasn’t true, he wouldn’t have to resign.
Let me repeat that for ya: If it wasn’t true, he wouldn’t have to resign.
Got it? Didn’t think so...
It’s time to take back the country.
What really frightens the mainstream media is they can no longer lie to us without being contradicted by an internet blogger with the truth.
Make no mistake, these clowns have every intent to silence dissent. The resignation of Van Jones cut them deeply.
Yep, evidently Tommy, the commie’s BF, feels threatened that his golden microphone has been drowned the fark out.
This is weird because that’s the exact same way I feel about the MSM, especially abc. An open sewer bubbling over with disinformation.
Say what you want about the Internet, Tom, but those of is who get our news here at least knew who Obama was before he was elected.
Whereas you and your colleagues publicly admitted to being completely clueless about him right up until the election.
Of course, you guys only had the research resources of the entire MSM at your disposal, whereas I had my laptop.
How so, Tommy?
Surely Truth having found a voice that the Government-Owned MSM has refused to give it can't be all that scary, eh?
Can you imagine these guys posting their nightly broadcast at 2 PM and letting everyone take shots at it. They cannot withstand that level of scrutiny. Or worse, they don't want to.
Well, if that isn’t the kettle calling the pot black.
These people don’t vet anything. They cheat; lie and make everything up as they go along while blaming everyone else for doing what they are doing.
They are the ones that are killing the truth.
...as evidenced by the "turds" we're flushing out!!
All the handwringing, all the criticism of the presentation, all the questioning of the credentials of those doing the online reporting...
...but no disputing of the facts.
That’s pretty funny - Brokaw saying “you have to vet information.” Just like the news crews vetted anything that obama has said or done from day one? Or when they picked up rumors about Sarah Palin directly from Kos and Huffington AS FACT? It’s too late. They’ve lost their audience and lost their credibility and it’s kind of fun to watch them try to act like they’re taking the high road now.
He is being honest, folks. The peasants are realizing that the elites are naked..
Frankly, Tom, it is VERY frightening that a radical racist, Communist puke like Jones could be hired in the first place.
This kind of stuff just makes you wonder what people got away with in the past without the internet and these TV schmucks holding back information.
pompous a$$es, all part of the Dinosaur media. They did nothing about Van Jones.
Tom Brokejaw on Make Me Depressed.
Vetting information is one of the things that Free Republic does best. We are on pretty strong ground after the internet rumors have gone a few rounds here on good ol' FR.
Agreed. The sewer of misinformation was the discussion on that panel.
Tom Brokaw is just mad that the internet provided the PROOF of the Trush of what was the avenda of Van Jones. His OWN WORDS THAT HE SPOKE were the sewer that skewered him; nothing on the internet per se.
I make time to watch the Sunday Morning talking heads to see how they will mangle the news. Weekly, they confirm that they are still pathetic. I rely on FOX and internet for true news reporting. That is why this Mark Lloyd “diversity czar” needs to apply to work at the Chavez administration.
The truth is pretty scary, isn't it, Tom?
Van Jones & Obama's "Centrism" (Jonah Goldberg) The Corner ^ | 6 September 2009 | Jonah Goldberg
Update: Oh and the conversation between Tom Brokaw and Tom Friedman about the lessons of Van Jones was a complete scandal. One of Friedman's key take-aways from this whole affair is that too many people will self-censor themselves so they can get government jobs. What a tragedy that fewer people will support cop-killers and anti-American conspiracy groups because of poor Van Jones chilling effect on the culture.
Oh, and listening to Friedman and Brokaw disparage the internet as a useless news medium, makes them sound like cranky old monks lamenting that flash-in-the-pan printing press.
It’s absolutely amazing isn’t it. These people have no shame whatsoever, they still think they can lie etc. and no one is going to find out about it, that may have been the case years ago but not anymore, everything is out there for everyone to see, plain and simple and it’s about time we started showing them what we know about them, one commie down, several more to go, who shall be next........czar #1?, czar #16?? We need to keep up the pressure, soooooooooo many commies, soooooo little time............
Thank God for FR and for the genuine INTERNET REPORTERS who are reporting on the news stories the cowards in the State Run Media refuse to run because they are either affraid of being labled "racists" or because they are afraid to lose their cushy jobs or because they are genuinly affraid for their and their families physical safety (this is the Obamessiah from Kenya, Chicago THUG administration we are talking about.) or lastly because their noses are so far up Obama;s butt they can no longer smell or see a story even if it is right in front of them =
Van Jones, the avowed communist, socialist, Marxist, 9/11 "truther" who hates America and white people and who SAID in print and on video that he wants to destroy the American system and rebuild it into a communist black racist "utopia"! All of this information was available and out there for ANY state run media journalist to see and report on, BUT THEY ALL REFUSED. So we, along with Glenn Beck and others are doing their job for them and they have the unmitigated gaull to call our reporting an "Open Sewer of Disinformation"!
Thank God Brokaw is no longer on TV, the man is a buffoon!
And who was right about Jones, the Internet or the Day Old News?? Tough luck Dinosaurs.
Pray for the Tea Party Express
Disinformation? So who was speaking on those videos we have? His evil twin Skippy? Snort.
That's because, despite your (and the rest of the MSM' for that matter) unwillingness to report on it, BArack Hussein Obama cannot run from who he is.
Van Jones = Frank Davis = Bill Ayers = Bernardine Dohrn = Jeremiah Wright = Tony Rezko = Rashid Khalidi = Raila Ordinga = Carol Browner = Rahm Emanuel = Henry Gates = John Holdren = Rosa Brooks = Eric Holder = Ezekiel Emanuel = BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
This is who the man is. A cauldron of corruption, greed, marxism and communism...someone who is doing all in hips power to destroy the free market and fundamental republican principle and build a marxist command economy on its ashes.
But the truth is getting out...a little more each day. Here a little, there a little...and sometimes a lot. And the American people are waking up to it.
I watched this, and became angry just taking in the ARROGANCE around that table.
Who was the IDIOT saying “Tell your kids to watch everything they do...it leaves a digital footprint...”
Yeah. That is good advice. But it was the context in which we hear this advice that just burns my ass.
He is making it out like this Van Jones guy is just a fine public servant who left too many digital footprints, and was crucified by a mob for partisan political purposes.
The real reason is that he is a marxist, racist, socialist and downright loon job who thought the government was behind 9/11 and “White” industry was deliberately targeting minority neighborhoods with toxic waste.
He didn’t say this as an 18 year old kid who was operating under the stupidity of youth as all of us did at one time.
He said these as a fully formed and developed political animal.
The REAL problem is that for every one of these Farrakhan-like racist, Marxist and socialist types who rise to the top of the water for us to see, there are dozens and dozens that we don’t see.
And until people accept the fact that Obama is EXACTLY THE SAME PHILOSOPHICALLY as people like Van Jones, Farrakhan, Wright and Ayers, we won’t be able to convince people that we need to remove him from office.
As for dumb asses like Brokaw, he and many of his ilk are just pissed off because they cannot dictate to people how they should form their opinions any more.
To them, independent thinking takes power away from them. And they are right. It does.
What incredible hubris, and flat-earth luddite ignorance from this panel of “elite” men!
I am so glad their age is done. Bring on the next group of men and women who will rise up and fall down in their turn.
Always do the right thing, and keep to the truth, be humble.
Vetting info is something obama and is ilk are immune from doing, obama thinks he’s the messiah, he knows all and surrounds himself with mirror images of himself - it’s a very scary world we are living in when communists are running the white house, whodda thunk? My ancestors are rolling over in their graves...............
HA....Glenn Beck is the Dennis the Menace....to the commies....er....lefty Democrats!
NY MAGAZINE.com: "OBAMA HIRED A 9/11 TRUTHER, FOR SOME REASON" (SNIPPET: "It turns out this Van Jones character was either not vetted at all, or vetted but seemingly without any concern for the skeletons that turned up (which really defeats the purpose of vetting in the first place).") (September 4, 2009, 10:35 am)
These people are upset that because the new media everyone can be a journalist and movie maker. They are upset because the have lost their monopoly.
The lumbering lefty media dinosaurs such as Brrlllollkaw continue their march into oblivion.
No way the Marxist Sleeping Media, MSM are going to cover the tea parties.
It’s frightening to Brokaw, because it’s (internet) is replacing him and the rest of the nits that he bloviates filtered information with.
