Cybercast News Service ^ | April 11, 2013 | Michael W. Chapman

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, based on a new analysis, said ABC, CBS, and NBC “are deliberately censoring news and information” that is negative about Obamacare, an assertion that Stuart Varney, host of Fox’s Varney & Co., said was true, adding, “There is deliberate censorship of information about Obamacare.”

On the Apr. 11 edition of Varney & Co., Bozell said the network new outlets—ABC, CBS, and NBC—“are deliberately censoring news and information from the American people” that reveals some of the negative and unpopular aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the president’s health care law that is popularly known as Obamacare.

Bozell then cited an analysis by the Media Research Center’s (MRC) deputy research director, Geoff Dickens, which examines five major facts and developments about Obamacare that the networks have not covered—zero stories. The analysis shows that 33 Democrats joined with at least 40 Republicans in the Senate to repeal a 2.3 percent sales tax, vital to funding Obamacare, on medical devices. The networks did not report this story. …

ABC, CBS, NBC deliberately censoring any bad news about Obama. They have done that from the beginning. It isn’t news.

This is truly a DUH moment, but at least Bozell backs it with facts.

ABC, CBC, NBC and the rest, except Fox News, are beyond being lap poodles. They are agents of the Ministry of Truth and are nothing more than propagandists for the Regime. They might as well be working for Obama’s buddies, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Media Research Center has huge signs posted - in a prime Times Square location - about the biased MSM, untruths, etc. Good for Brent and Co.

Again, the left and their ilk hand us (the right) not only ammo, but this time the gun in which to load it into - and the right will do NOTHING with it. This should already be loaded up on the advertising circuit on all of those stations listed. Every single congress critter without a D after their name should be saying the same talking points about this very subject. But the only thing we will hear is crickets.....i friggen hate crickets!

ABC, CBS, and NBC are all parts of the King Obama empire of communists. They have no idea that the throat they cut will be their own when King Obama takes over the network and tell and/or orders what to broadcast. Kinda like now. Communism with a dictator like King Obama will destroy the networks.

Got my new insurance cards a few days ago. My deductible doubled and my co-pay went up 25%. Yes we can.

When it comes to all-things Obama, you have to ask yourself this: if a tree falls in the forest and the media doesn’t cover it, does it make any sound? Our current media are guilty of acts of commission as well as omission.

True, but they'll do what any good bureaucrat does when people complain about it: "You're the only person who's ever had a problem!"

There is a way to go after the media. Problem is we work for a living and do not have time to picket the networks.

However one thing we can do in the tradition of Alinsky is pick a target, freeze it and polarize it. In the MSM’s case, their sponsors.

Do that to a couple of them and next thing you know they are pulling their ads. It wil work.

Anyone have a target? Let’s give it a try.

One obvious way you can tell the networks are hiding the bad news—the number of “good news” stories there are about Obamacare. Not that I watch much MSM, but you don’t see anything. No special interest stories about how O-care is changing lives, making healthcare easier to find, making it more affordable.

The network news has long since become simply an arm of the hussein administration and America’s Leftists; it’s our very own, homegrown Ministry of Propaganda.
