Lying Badly: Axelrod Tips CNN's Suicide Pact with White House
Conservative Commune ^ | April 13, 2012 | Dan Collins

Posted on 04/14/2012 8:59:29 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

As happens on the web on Fridays, posts begin to turn towards just how the weekend’s television news ‘magazines’ and round-tables will choose to digest the news, and how they will frame it, in concert with the national Sunday papers. The left doesn’t need JournoList, though that was a convenience while it lasted, to know how to spin the week’s news in favor of libs and progressives, because it’s the zeitgeist: it’s in the air that they breathe and the cues that they receive from the lips of booked surrogates.

Booked surrogates, you ask? What are they? Well, prior to this week, I wouldn’t have been able to answer that question, either, but the Hilary Rosen stay-at-home-moms debacle has cracked the door open to show Axelrod and the White House with their pants down and peanut butter everywhere. Michelle Malkin via Jim Geraghty:

1/26/10 Rosen visited Dagoberta Vega, White House broadcasting media official and director of surrogate booking.

In all, a Hilary Rosen has visited the White House 35 times, sometimes to meet with Obama, and sometimes to meet with top advisers in the White House. But after she outrageously claimed that MS-suffering, cancer-surviving mom of five Ann Romney had never worked a day in her life, Axelrod, Messina, Wasserman-Schultz, eventually even Obama and Mo-bama all denounced the statement. Most interesting was Axelrod’s appearance with John King at CNN.

John King started asking Axelrod uncomfortable questions about Rosen, who is in public relations and communications with former White House communications director and Mao fan Anita Dunn, and Axelrod pointed out to King that it would be improper for a news organization such as CNN’s to have as a paid regular guest anyone who had the sort of ties to the White House that King seemed to be imputing. It was really a very revelatory moment, because it demonstrated the First Rule of Lefty Media Collusion while at the same time relaying a not-very-veiled Chicago thug-style threat to King and his network. I have to say that I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. What Axelrod is saying, in effect, is that the White House and CNN are in a suicide pact, and that King had better not forget it. Axelrod’s veiled threat was so off the charts that King wasn’t able immediately to absorb it.

Keep reading...

That last bit of revelation by Dan Collins is exquisite.  Conservative Commune is going on my favorite links list.  Awesome.

This is what evil looks like.

And so many thought the Clinton and the media were an evil bunch. This adming w/ the press puts the Clinton machine to shame.
The most amazing thing is that so many of the regular folk/electorate will NEVER pay attention to this because the MSM will NOT tell them of this.... and they will NOT go looking for it.

Tell me again the old saying the the citizens deserve the leaders that they get. This all is scary proof of that saying. A real shame for our country.

She is a High Fashion Model or that is what we are supposed to think. Looks like they airbrushed her face a bit too much. Lipstick on a pig isn't that won't Obama said in the 2008 election cycle

It no longer seems at all shocking to see a “paid employee of CNN” openly shilling for one political party. Objectivity? Why bother?? Those Republicans are stupid, and evil, and they oppose abortion too! That’s the opinion of this unbiased journalist!

It does not have to be someone with ties to White House. Examples.

Election 2008.

Stanley Kurtz’s Fairness Doctrine Preview

"Stanley Kurtz’s appearance on the Milt Rosenberg radio program in Chicago last night provided an unsettling look into the authoritarian tactics being employed by the Obama campaign to stifle and intimidate its critics . . . [A] few hours before show time, the phones began ringing off the hook with irate callers demanding Kurtz be axed from the program. It didn’t take long to discover that the Obama campaign [had activated the protesters]" [End of quote]

And just this past week DU protesters got CoastToCoastAM to kick Sharon Sebastian off the show. She was scheduled to be on and at the last minute she was kicked off and not a word about her from host George Noory. Normally Noory will say that the scheduled guest will be there on a future date or otherwise explain what happened.

Ms Sebastian is a writer and has extensive material on Obama -- who was never criticized on C2C until he signed that NDAA. Since then C2C has permitted limited critical remarks. (12 years of bashing Bush-Cheney-Halliburton however.)

These comments on DU reveal that C2C was bombarded with protests -- the comments prove that the protesters DO NOT even listen to C2C they just protest the guests -- here They do not listen to C2C because Dr. Corsi is not permitted to talk about Obama eligibility. He is on mostly about Iran and oil.

FReepers were expecting to hear Ms Sebastian But at Reply #14 it was noticed that something was wrong and to the best of my knowledge -- including unanswered emails from me to Noory and a C2C producer from me -- they have never explained what happened.

Obama wins again and the millions of apolitical listeners will not know truth about Obama -- if it's a close election C2C ignorant voters just may be enough to give the election to Obama.

We haven't had a free press in decades. How we will fix this mess is not clear, but I would start by prosecuting the media under consumer protection/fraud statutes:

They pretend to disseminate 'news' but its all carefully edited to be left-wing propaganada.

If they want to label it opinion or propaganda and not news, then OK. But in the mean time they go to jail.
