Mainstream media is threatening our country's future
FoxNews.com ^ | 10/01/2012 | Patrick Caddell

I think we’re 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 or not. You know, when I first started in politics – and for a long time before that – everyone on both sides, Democrats and Republicans, despised the press commonly, because they were SOBs to everybody. Which is exactly what they should be. They were unrelenting. Whatever the biases were, they were essentially equal-opportunity people. That changed in 1980. There are a lot of reasons for it...

Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya.

Someone protested an embassy somewhere? Some guy got killed? Libya? Yeah, maybe, I think I remember something about that. That was soo last month. More importantly, Obama's going to give me a free cell phone!

There is no doubt that Romney is blowing an election he could not lose, and has done everything he can to lose it.

No, the GOP is losing it just like they intentionally lost in '08. Remember them locking Palin away from the cameras and McRino's "we shouldn't be afraid of an Obama presidency? Our own Congress and SCOTUS are, in Thomas' own words, "evading" the eligibility issue. It's all been deliberate. There is no longer a two party system but a single one devoting itself to the destruction of freedom and the msm is in bed with them.

“David Plouffe, who is the White House’s Senior Adviser—and was Obama’s campaign manager last time, he and [David] Axelrod sort of switched out, Axelrod going back to Chicago for the campaign—and just after it was announced that he was coming, an Iranian front group in Nigeria gave him $100,000 to give two speeches in Nigeria.”

He was merely collecting on his email letter,

"Dear Mr. Plouffe, allow me to instroduce myself I am Abwallat ar-Fakir I have $US100,000 in the Banco Bongo Laos as a result of my late uncle Faramir al-Mau Mau ar-Fakir..."

Here is video of his speech.

Pat Caddell slams the media: They have become an “enemy of the people” (video 26:00)

The media as it is has to be destroyed. No other political fights can be won until the press is completely exposed, discredited and humiliated for being just what Pat has called them out to be. Enemies of the people. It has to be the number one fight or all else is lost.

I don't see that journalism has to be nonpartisan.

That's why there used to be the "reported" news of the day which was separate from the editorials. Today, it's all editorials without the byline.

“Anyone figured out why Media writers and Professors are anti-Republican?”

Easy and obvious answer: Brainwashed by avowed Communist teachers.

I went to Journalism school in the 1965-1969 time frame and took mainly advertising courses, but I also took a course in news-editorial. Back then we were taught to report the facts—who, what, when, where and why in the first paragraph, and to keep opinion pieces on the editorial page.

They are like islamists. They are brainwashed from youth and they do not know any better.

It’s self propagating after a few generations. We may have to fight our way out of this mess.

Jihadists are only one angle to the global communist dangle known as the “mainstream media.”

PLUS I would think they also get helped by getting bonuses $$$$$$$$$$$ for helping those such as Hussein Obama. Which they no doubt hurry to put in their SWISS BANK accounts. Follow their money trail. Didn't Chrissie Matthews say he got a bonus in 2008 when Hussein Obama was elected?

It sounds like it’s time to do what libs love to do and we’re loathe to do: boycott sponsors. Campaign against sponsors of MSNBC and other hack media outlets, just as Van Jones’ Color of Change campaigned so successfully against sponsors of ALEC until that group backed off from supporting Voter ID and Stand Your Ground laws.

they have been brainwashing these idiots since school to pish social changel accept the perversions, push the left wing radcial agenda and to twist the truth.They use the word twist because they can;t say hide or lie.

They explain that there are diferent angles to the story and they always go left wing in the end.

The tea party should have protested every HQ of the local media outlet and demand they report the truth and name names

AND WE STILL GET DUMB FOOLS ON OUR SIDE SAYING IGNORE THE MEDIA , NO POINT FIGHTING THEM WE GET OUR OWN MESSAGE OUT.

they are the same fools which will tell us to ignore the social issues and the homostapo
