CNN's John King on Wednesday mocked Barack Obama for calling Fox News a "destructive" force in our society while at practically the same time a White House spokesman was saying MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow provide "an invaluable service" to the country.
JOHN KING, HOST: "Sometimes you feel sad to be left out of a big debate. This is not one of those sometimes. In an interview with "Rolling Stone," President Obama voiced the opinion that Fox News is a "destructive" force in our society. On the other hand, the left hand in this case, Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the President believes MSNBC commentators Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow provide "an invaluable service" to that same society and democracy."
Obama forgot to add: “and CNN is irrelevant”.
Nothing like staying above the fray.
What a whining little baby we have for a president.
He forgot to say “CNN is my pet”.
I don't take this comment as a change of policy at CNN.
Rather, it is realization that they too are inside the bulls eye.
If Obama is bitching about Fox News, does that mean that he now has an “enemies list” just like Nixon did?
Keith Olberman and Rachel Madcow are invaluable?
That is enough to make a buzzard puke.
The rates must be so low, that even if only a few people watch, it's good business, kinda like advertising in a local newspaper for $50/per full page ad.
Ed Schultz was left out of the equation. His feelings are hurt.
Someone’s been sending out resumés!
The “Main Stream Media” engages in AGITPROP: Agitation and propaganda. The word comes from the Agitation and Propaganda section of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party’s Central Committee. It was responsible for the education of the people after the 1917 Revolution.
This is no longer a matter of bias. THIS OURIGHT PROPOGANDA. The American People are being subjected to a RE-EDUCATION program. This includes the schools, colleges, liberal churches, unions, movies, radio, TV, magazines, and newspapers. Even the work[lace has been transformed in the name of political correctness.
And the “agitation” agenda is to portray Tea Party people and other conservatives as racist, homophobic, stupid, selfish, insensitve, power-hungry reactionaries. This is meant to
That’s what the IDIOT CONVENTION in Washington is all about today.
AGITPROP: The strategy of the leftist funding organizations to destroy our country.
Well, he wasn’t a headline because no one knows who the hell he is, but, he was used as an example:
“And, according to the White House, this is an invaluable service.’” He then showed clips from “The Ed Show” and “Countdown.”
Can’t lay my hands on it at the moment, but I saw something the other day saying that most of CNN’s money came from foreign broadcasting.
If the shoe were on the other foot do you really think King (or anyone else at CNN)would have protested? I seriously doubt it......
Obama is not in favor of freedom of the press. He wants the media to issue propaganda on his behalf.
Bullseye. Dead right on.
And until conservatives begin realizing that this is the source and origin of today’s universal lib-think, we will never really change things on any kind of a long-term basis.
I’ve posted this before, but my mother worked as an FBI typist in WWII, and saw what the communists were planning here to take over: take over education at all levels, “agitprop” kids from 6 to 25, take over the media, and then government. It’s all happened.
We may rejoice to see a turn in November, but it can’t be long term until there is a plan that is then implemented to reverse AGITPROP.
Thanks SC Pete
Mika... isn’t she hilarious? Not a brain in her pointy little head.
Of course! And don't you remember when the obama regime openly discussed revoking FNS's press credentials because FNS wasn't a "real" news service? Thank goodness the rest of the media realized just how dangerous that would be.
“If Obama is bitching about Fox News, does that mean that he now has an enemies list just like Nixon did?”
Yup. But there`s a difference. Nixon`s list consisted of a relatively few, mostly white, political opponents. The Emperor`s list consists of every white man, woman, and child on the planet and numbers in the hundreds of millions.
You’re spot on. And during the campaign this President was advertised as one who would bridge the gap — hah! Unfortunately enough fools believed that drivel and he got elected. Since then he’s gone straight to the standard he set while a senator — the most liberal.
While I doubt your rant I do hope I have made the list.
Fox News and the internet are partial antidotes to AGITPROP: that’s why both are under fire. They are effective. Besides the media, we need to take back education. Conservatives need to run for Boards of Education and monitor textbooks and curricula. We need to send our kids to conservative colleges and boycott the commie schools: Harvard, Yale, Wisconsin, Berkely, Columbia, Oberlin, and so on.
The enemy has had a 60 year head start, but fortunately freedom and liberty is in our DNA. We must all join the fight. We have been busy working and raising families while the enemy has worked relentlessly to subvert everything this country stands for. Also,it’s time for conservative funders to step up and join the fight too.
