Posted on 02/01/2013 6:25:54 PM PST by Kaslin
It's been a week full of liberal media bias examples, but after all, every week is full of them. We saw NBC news purposely edit another video clip smearing Second Amendment supporters in order to push a gun control agenda. This is the same agenda President Obama just happens to be pushing as he continues to single out the NRA and its members as enemy number one. The move by NBC impacted public opinion for a few hours until luckily new media, the team over at Twitchy.com precisely, debunked the entire thing.
Although this was a case of editing to fake news in order to influence the current political debate about gun control on Capitol Hill, often times the media simply chooses to ignore the real news for political purposes.
New York Times Best Selling Author and Washington Examiner Editor David Freddoso details this tactic in his newest book, Spin Masters: How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Re-Elect Barack Obama, which came out Monday.
In the book Freddoso states, "Sure the mainstream media tilt left -- even wildly left. We all know that, right? But it's even worse than you think. The trouble is not just bias -- it's that the media no longer even bother to report the news or investigate big stories."
Freddoso wades through the past year in media, covering everything from the media promoted war on women to the lack of coverage of big scandals like Operation Fast and Furious and the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi. Using humor, Freddoso points out media's most ridiculous stories with sections in the book titled, "The Zombie-Eyed Granny-Starver from Wisconsin" and "Violence Against Fact."
If you're interested in knowing how many former mainstream media journalists are actually working in the Obama administration, he's got that covered too.
Get it, read it and remember it next time you watch the news or read the Washington Post. The book is available now on Amazon.
Not since the retarded hatred of the Jews by Nazis have we seen such vicious attacks such as on the NRA. It’s apparently not racist for calling white people stupid. Same Nazi retards, under different colors, with the same genocidal agenda.
Also lost on the “zeitgeist” is the fact that Hitler subjugated Germany and other nations by first attacking an elite boogeyman that could have denounced his plans.
3 yrs after 9/11 there were an additional 4 million jobs and the media called it a jobless recovery.
4 yrs after the 08 meltdown there were 7 million LESS jobs and the media call it the new normal.
It won’t hurt to go to Amazon (at the link provided above) and vote “Yes” for the positive, five star reviews (two at the moment) and “No” for the negative reviews (none at the moment).
Even if you can’t do a review yourself, that always helps.
Read it? I’d probably be better off to just beat myself about the face and ears with it.
I did go to Amazon and used the request to add this book to those available on a Kindle. Since I made the change to my Kindle Fire it is the only way I purchase books these days.
If this becomes available I will buy it.
In the old South Bull Conner thought he was a great cop because he was always fair to white people.
Conner wasn’t fair to black people because he and his friends didn’t like black people.
It’s why we look down on the Bull Conners of the world.

Members of the MSM think they’re great journalists because they’re always fair to liberal elites.
Journalists aren’t fair to conservatives because they and their friends don’t like conservatives.
It’s why we look down on journalists...
NBC has created an inferior newsroom culture...
And just why should we read this book, that tells us what we already know?
And what we know is this: The commie pigs own the farm. Period. End of discussion.
And if you are NOT ready to confront their aggression, you deserve neither peace nor quarter.
Waaaayyyy back when us EEEVVVILLLLE John Birchers predicted all this stuff, good men attacked us. Called us all kinds of names. “Tin Foil Hat crowd” Y2Kers, Birch Babies. And on and on. Rush Lintball, Jimmy Quinn, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity: “Hey Mr. Paranoid, keep a sharp lookout for those ‘black helocopters!’ LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH.
A commie under every bed! LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH.
We warned, we tried to educate, etc., etc., We were laughed at and impugned BY OUR OWN PEOPLE!
Now, all of a sudden, the Glenn Becks and Rush Lintballs (WHO LED THE CHARGE TO MARGINALIZE AND MALIGN US) sit and say: But WHO KNEW?, OH, JUST WHO EVER KNEW? JUST WHO EVER SAW IT COMING??)
(Lintball and Peker Beker now ADMIT that the lefties are light years ahead, and how the hell can we stop them now? Who KNEW they were SO organized and SO single minded?)
End of rant. Sorry all, its too late now. Go listen to Glenn and Rush rant emptily about the fate of the nation.
THE NRA VS AMERICA THE POWERS BEHIND THE MERCHANTS OF DEATH.
Making a list, checkin it twice...we already know who’s been naughty and not nice. And when the time comes, there will be hell to pay. Should have happened already.. how I despise these people. So Andrea, Chrissy, Madcow, Soledad, etc., etc. Your day is coming.
Really... is anyone here surprised to hear this?
Yes. Good suggestion. Others might do the same—ask for it to be on Kindle, which will also help expand reader interest.
I need to read a book to know this?!?
The old media are socialists collaborators. May they meet a just end.
How many HUGE stories about Obummer have been spiked by the press, not for lack of proof but because they’re protecting him? How many great photos (like maybe Obummer smoking a butt?) are idling away in hard drives because the photographer has become a whore for the current occupant of the White House?
This, more than anything else, is why I hold the current press corps in utter contempt. Journalism is an honorable profession ONLY when the God-given right of the people to know EVERYTHING is paramount.
Secrets ALWAYS come out, sooner or later. Is it worth it to hold them now?

And those who worship him truly believe the media is biased AGAINST obama. The fact that they worship him proves they’re stupid.
