In remarks to the AIM conference, ObamaNation: A Day of Truth, on September 21 st , former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, I think were at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.
Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from "organized governmental power, they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
...Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.
....they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.

Thank God for Pat Caddell: taking it to the media. They have been the enemy of the people for some time. Now it’s becoming clear to anyone who cares to pay attention.
Considering Pat was a Democrat most of his life this is quite an indictment of how far the apple has fallen from the tree of liberty...and hes right more than he probably is even aware.
He’s right. The bulk of the mainstream media have become Pravda West, shilling for the worst bastard in American history - NONE excepted.
The press isn’t just misguided Democrat ideologues. You have to pay people to be so blatantly biased. The old media is paid by, or at least believe they’re paid by, the Democrats.
funny you mention that tree... I was thinking it was in need of watering, and though the original quote said "tyrants", we can include "traitors" in there as well.
The purpose of Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), Polls, is to:
1.) discourage Conservatives from voting in an up coming election;
2.) discourage Conservatives from financially supporting their candidates;
and 3.) publicly promote the idea that most voters agree that Socialism will make America more successful.
Thus, LAM Polls are analogous to a dam holding back the floodwaters of REALITY from those who still bother to read, listen or watch the LAM.
Since 35 % of Americans will have the opportunity to vote early this year, the longer the LAM can keep the LAM Polls skewed, the greater their chances of fooling the early voters.
Strongest stating of the reality of our enemy 5th column, yet.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see armed action taken against the media, eventually. It’s that bad, and eventually people are going to treat them like the enemy of our Republic that they are.
Looking at the plummeting ratings for network news, and the cratering financials at newspapers, the deal here, IMHO, is that they’ve freely decided to chuck whatever shreds of credibility they may have left to shill for Obama because, like the state governments of CA and IL, their very survival depends upon getting bailouts in a second Obama term.
I see our press compared to Pravda a lot. I think Pravda was forced by the Soviet government to report as they did. Our press is still free to report as objectively and as hard hitting on the government as want to. Unlike Pravda our press CHOOSES to report as they do. This makes them way worse than Pravda in my opinion.
The thing is, WE are the mainstream and WE should begin acting like it.
Those are EXCELLANT points!
Like Sheep eager for the slaughter.
But could we are seeing their unraveling right now, the death rattle in the form of the skewed polls, which has now had liftoff off of FR, and onto the Blogoshere, and into the the MSM themselves. When BO loses in November which is an almost certanity, what will be left to say. Scream voter fraud? Will that work besides except on the most fervent of partisans and to what end? They can claim ingornance and that they were mislead but by then its over. The whole smoldering pile of dung will come crashing down, when Obama on a rainy Grant Park stage gives his concession speech.
...with Obama as President, we are not permitted to call it by its real name. We have seen the name of Americas enemy stricken from all training manuals and government documents.
Weve watched while the lamestream government-controlled media has replaced truth with propaganda that squashes debate and ridicules those who dare to speak the truth.
It wouldn’t surprise me that the media is staying afloat with stimulus money. They have no concern about the actual business of their industry cause obama is propping them up.
What’s sick to watch is the media openly campaigning for a dictator in sheep’s clothing. They have no clue what a dictator would do to them with enough power.
THE MEDIA WHORENALISTS *ARE* THE FIFTH COLUMN
