Skip to comments.Pravda asks: What happened to American media?
Posted on 03/10/2012 1:48:33 PM PST by opentalk
Its a twist of irony: The Russian news website Pravda has published an accusation that the American media is tame, afraid to publish news and is deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about [President Obama's] defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States.
In a March 7 Pravda column, Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forged, Dianna Cotter, a senior at American Military University, blasts Americas mainstream media for their virtual silence about Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaios six-month investigation into the controversy surrounding Obamas birth certificate and his constitutional eligibility for office.
A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America, Cotter wrote. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation. Yet, in the five days since [Arpaio's] revelations there has been little in the way of serious reporting on the findings he presented in his presser. With 6 short videos, the Sheriff and his team presented a devastating case, one the tame US press is apparently unable to report.
..Silence so loud it can be felt.

Ouch! That was like when even Milhouse was taking shots at Bart...
i STILL wanna know why we are citing Pravda as a source for ... anything???
Man. When we have to go to soviet newspapers to get the truth, how low does that tell you we have sunk!
Oh come on... you don't see the irony in this? And in this instance Pravda is 100% correct. That hurts even more.
Because they’re telling the “truth”? (look it up)
Who are you insulting? Pravda, or everyone else?
The U.S. press is worse than tame. They are totally sold out.
The article in Pravda is written by a Freeper.
“i STILL wanna know why we are citing Pravda as a source for ... anything???”
Aside from the Enquirer, it is the only legitimate MSM news source.
Your Pravda article is mentioned in WND ~
This article is on their most popular list. Breitbart was correct, it is time to call out the media, and as Rush articulated this week, MSM need to register as lobbyists for this administration, They provide free advertising.
We now live in the USS of A. United Socialist States of America. This is a tragedy of the most epic proportions and half of Americans are totally oblivious. If Newt isn’t elected President this November we are sunk! I am 67 years old and unlike Moochelle, for the first time in my life I am “ashamed” of America. Does anyone want to claim my 20 years of military service? I’m no longer proud of it if things continue to progress as they are progressing.
And she is no lightweight is she ?
Perhaps post the link to the thread you started earlier ?
Same thang in the Bubba years:
WaPo had Noooooothing about Monica for a LONG time, while the Enquirer and “Alien Baby Found in Watermelon”-type rags featured in-depth coverage.
It was like being in The Twighlight Zone, and it’s like that now, sometimes, too.
As we draw nearer the election it will become more and more ridiculous.
Since everyone in the news media tweets, and reads twitter, we all need to tweet about the lying American news media that withholds the truth and should be sued for being an accomplice to a fraud, which should include prison!
From 89-91 I witnessed the Soviet News become better and the American news become absolute crap. Nothing has changed the trajectory of our news, though I haven’t followed Pravda or Estvestia since.
Pretty low to be sure.
Because FR cowered in the corner, biting a blanket.
The answer is simple.
Those who own the media in the country have agendas that aren’t necessarily in America’s best interest. I think the fact that a Saudi sheik is the number 2 shareholder of Foxnews is going to have an effect as to how Foxnews reports on Obama or the Middle-east.
It’s not just that reporters have been propagandized at the re-education camps we call universities. There are still more than a few reporters who actually would like to do actual reporting.
The American Press is deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about this defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States. It is hiding Barack Obamas Fraud as it has been revealed by a Sheriff in Arizona. The silence of the American press would be unbelievable if it werent so blatantly obvious.
It is nearly as egregious as the audacity of Obamas fraud itself.
Because, unlike the American media, they are not in the tank for Obama.
What irony? All I see is that the birther argument is so insane now, they have to go to Pravda. That's not irony, that's just pathetic.
I prefer countries with serious news media and reporting. Like North Korea. I would never have known that the former Dear Leader was a whiz at golf and could regularly get a hole-in-one.
His daughter works for Holder at DOJ
Well..., could it be because you can’t find this truth in our MSM?
Did you ever think Pravda would be a purveyor of truth, and our MSM wouldn’t be?
And yet, on this issue that is precisely what we have here.
What major MSM player has taken an interest in the issue we may have an illegal alien in the White House? I’m not convinced this guy is a U. S. Citizen.
See post 15 above
...In November, 2003 Al Jazeera reported, men in battle fatigues have raided the Moscow headquarters of billionaire investor George Soros. One of the Open Society executives said the attackers had removed documents as a climax to a long-running commercial dispute. Soross fund pulled out of Russia that year, after having lost a reported $2 billion.
Yup, I saw it only after I replied and then hit the refresh button on my browser.
DOH to myself LOL!
The Pravda of Cold War propaganda days is defunct; this is a newer media outlet that is utilizing the same name. There's no other connection that I've found, in fact, some FReepers take issue with that site's owner "stealing" the "old" Pravda's name, or something like that. Whatever.
It appears to be as legitimate as other foreign news services such as Costa News, Le Monde and BBC, all of which can be hit-or-miss... but they're putting out more useful news than our state-run media.
Think of it this way: Pravda is now legitimate because the Communists that used to run it are now employed west of the Atlantic.
It is truly ironic a former soviet propaganda outlet is mocking USA MSM. Knowing and having insight to the sheriffs deputies volunteers and skill sets, there is no doubt in my mind of their findings. They are now after the forger. Pravda is the first. Wherever BHO travels, the aroma this unresolved issue will follow.. The Sheriff’s assertion that BHO documents are not just “forgeries” but “bad forgeries” at best rings loudly.
BHO leads the Islamic global soft Jihad. Remember the Doors “Soft Parade?”. BHO’s mask is off. He’s a devious well prOtected traveler. Pravda recognizes this charade. So do we.
Amazing. Journalism in America is dead. All they do is publish leftwing talking points.
FR collapsed right there with the best of them. The Mods were working overtime throwing Breaking News threads into chat on 3/1, when we were desperately trying to report Arpaio's press conference. It was sickening to see what has happened with the once great news source, Free Republic.
A la Soledad O'Brien.
“The article in Pravda is written by a Freeper.”
Yes, and the admin at FR will move this to CHAT or BLOGGERS as they have done with previous posts of this article.
Makes one wonder if FR is now part of the MSM?
Anybody else up for a protest march on...say...NBC? I was just reading that Rush has lost so many sponsors, that on Friday’s show 77/80 ads were PSAs.
This weekend there are robo calls linking the GOP and Rush to “the war on women”...demanding Rush be taken off the air.
Anybody else think it’s time to get Maher off HBO? If Rush goes...all bets are off...we can boycott advertisers too...and there are more of us.
Right. They aren’t tame - they are lopsided!
well...so far they haven’t and I posted it at 9:40 this a.m.
Americans are now routinely having to look to the British papers to get ANY sort of truth/competence in reporting of US news.
Our "journalists" are either cheaply bought or ignorant or more likely BOTH.
I'd sooner brag about being in street pencil sales than I would about being a "reporter" in the US MSM.
Ignorant little backward people.
Wonder what logical business decision would make a company quit advertising to 20M listeners?
If you figure that almost 50% of this country are takers then that really shrinks the target audience and a high percentage of potential customers are listening to Rush.
Knee jerk suicidal liberalism on display.
You better look again —
This one was posted with CHAT, now is back to NEWS
You earned it and let's see if couch potatoes are willing to learn or just sit some more and let the media educate them OR wake up and learn on their own.
I agree about Newt. The GOP E and media hate him and I hate them! What you fought for, Newt has, is and will protect.
They put the one I posed this a.m. into bloggers and moved the one the author posted a couple of days ago into news?
This doesn’t make sense to me.
I wouldn’t consider her a blogger - she’s been published too many places.
Pravda, once was a source for nothing but propaganda, is now more reliable than American state run media.
Many here look as though they are red blooded, Constitutional lovin' Americans and in fact, they are merely pretending.
Know what I mean?
US traditional journalism and media are nothing more than an embarrassingly sorry joke.
