ABC, CBS, NBC Are 'Censoring Footgage' of Union Thug Violence in Lansing
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 12/12/2012 9:35:59 AM PST by chessplayer

The pro-union broadcast networks are deliberately censoring footage of thuggish union violence directed at conservatives. If a Tea Partier had physically assaulted a liberal journalist or ripped down a structure occupied by a liberal organization all on video, the footage would be broadcast on an endless loop.

Pravda USA at it again. And, of course, obama is silent. Shocker.

Heck, Tea Party protesters did not use racist language, nor did they spit on black people -- but those infamous incidents were still national news for a few weeks.

Could be some kind of media bias. Could be.

President Obama had every right to support the unions during the onset of these protests, but now that they’ve been caught on tape perpetrating vicious physical assaults, he has an even greater responsibility to denounce them swiftly, publicly, and severely.

HaHaHaHa! Yeah, that's gonna happen.

obama will just demand that Boehner pass a No-Right-To-Work law in addition to giving up control of the debt ceiling.

If people don’t know about it, it never happened.

Just ask Mr. Ben Ghazi.

FU MEDIA!

..and the GOP will never get out of the hole they're in unless and until they wage a full frontal assault on the government propaganda media.

It’s time that we acknowledge that Mainstream Media are engaged in out and out propoganda and have become “enemies of the republic” and must be dealt with. These criminal liberals couldn’t survive without the puppet media shielding them. It’s time to remove the shields...

'Censoring Footgage'

They are preventing gauges to measure foot size from being displayed?

How will we ever find the right-sized shoes any more?

To say there is a conflict of interests here is to dramatically understate the issue.

Ain’t it true.

I’ve read the same histories you have and it’s always the same.

The takers, the resenters, the non-doers, team up with the academics and the gatekeepers of public opinion and they set out to undermine and destroy.

A tipping point is reached and every true individual, every achievement, every institution and every principled value is destined for the fire.

I can appreciate the comparison. Nevertheless, the only similar such action could occur (in a blatant, outright display of violence and intimidation) is in home territory - blue states where they would be protected by authorities and media.

Were it to happen here where I live in Georgia, it would be Turkey Shoot Night instead of Kristalnact. Most here would be yelling “I feel threatened! I fear for my life! ==== blam blam blam....”

The right could have their own nightly news broadcast. Internet video, blogs, and podcasts can only go so far.

If only all of our guys can put part of their professional rivalry and jealously aside and pool resources to produce a syndicated 6:30pm newscast that will give an option to stations that are sick of carrying this state-run garbage.

I thought the same thing......

I remember years ago (studying German History) How could they (the German people) allow this. The same thought went through my mind while watching “Final Solution” videos.

Then there was Obama’s first 4 years, we thought,” How could we let this happen..........”

Well it is happening. People here in US want it, ignorant or not. They will get it.

Then it will be late, no second civil war only minor clashes here.

Hitler did not have supreme power in 1932

In the leftist world-view, unions are the workers rising up against the capitalist exploiters. Business owners and employers exploit the workers and earn unjust profits on the backs of the low paid workers.

Well, they’re wrong...and there’s an easy way to show them.
If you’re able to, and a lot of you are, simply drop out.

Found this line in a novel I read a while back: "Whacking out a television reporter or a newscaster whose reportage was especially hostile to the revolution was caller dropping anchor."

For some reason, I found that line funny; not in an ironic way but in a laugh out loud way. "Dropping anchor" indeed...

Make that “called dropping anchor”! With a “D” darn it.

And to think I proofread it. Badly it seems. Just call me “Tanglefinger”

The “free press” in this country, run largely by leftists, has determined that its role should be that of the state’s official Propaganda Apparatus.
