Sarah Palin Blasts Press: You Only 'Cry Foul' When 'Obama's Boot is on Your Neck'
Breitbart ^ | 22 Feb 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 02/23/2014 8:16:19 AM PST by SoConPubbie

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted the mainstream press for only holding President Barack Obama accountable when they are impacted by Obama's overreach and abuses, while not being watchdogs in nearly every other case.

"Lamestream calls for empathy, even outrage, for a First Amendment violation that's on par with all the abuse we've brought to your attention as Obama stomps on our Constitution," Palin wrote on her Facebook page after the Obama administration's FCC aborted plans to monitor the country's newsrooms. "You've IGNORED us, you've marginalized us, you've left us for 'destroyed.' But when Obama's boot is on YOUR neck you finally wake the h*ll up and cry foul? Good Lord."

Palin, who resolved before the new year to hold the "lapdog media" more accountable, posted her message on Facebook after the FCC backtracked on Friday and said it would not ask newsrooms to answer questions about how they conduct their news-gathering operations. As Breitbart News reported, Mignon Clyburn, the daughter of Fairness Doctrine proponent Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), has been leading the charge on behalf of the FCC. 

Palin linked to a Breitbart News article about many of the Obama administration's abuses in cracking down on freedom of the press. Proving Palin's point, one of the only other times the mainstream press held the Obama administration to account was after revelations that the administration intercepted email and phone messages from mainstream media journalists for national security purposes.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms.

I think once the existence of “Journ-0-list” was confirmed, the MSM lost ANY claim to “impartiality”.

Everybody knows how the propaganda media “gathers” their information. They get talking points from the white house.

It’s not difficulty to understand the lack of outrage by the state-run media at Obama’s plans to “monitor” news gathering. As they’re entirely in the tank for the regime, exactly what “monitoring” would be needed to keep them in line? This was directed at “noncompliant” media.

I think these servile, foot-licking stenographers rather enjoy the boot on their necks. They believe it will give them a chance to touch the hem of his garment, or something.

As I understand it, the Obama Press Laws are still going to be implemented, just a little later. The delay gives the dust time to settle and blackmail a few more media types into giving loud support.
The Republicans said little and did nothing except continue to bash Conservatives and the Tea Party.
If the Conservatives had a functioning power base, they could be giving awards and public appearance opportunities to media types who expose the fascist fist behind the Obama glove. But the cowardly reporters have no incentive to make waves as they have no political support, protection or motivation to speak the truth.

Yeah, "just a little later" and applied only to certain classifications of media such as Fox News, Breitbart, broadcasters carrying programs deemed offensive (Rush, Levin, etc)...

MSM's at no risk of having any boot on their necks, but we certainly are.

Molon Labe, mofo.

The tyrant will not be outed if the masses never get the message.

The MSM necks need a lot more heavy boots to effect change.

Yeah, 'FOR AMERICA' is no motivation for those self-absorbed cowardly wusses.

But did they "cry foul"?

Isn't it just Fox News that's talking about the story?

I don't remember seeing references to it on the broadcast networks.

Even most of the partisan media shills crapped a little in their pants when they found out about this FCC crackdown.

The United States Constitution has succeeded in creating the environment and freedom to have America have by far the most successful nation ever in the last 200 plus years.

Are we going to allow these freedoms to be removed and oppressed and not even whimper?

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE IS AN EPITAFF WE DO NOT WANT TO COME TO FRUITION. GOD HELP America IN JESUS NAME, AMEN..

THANK GOD FOR SARAH PALIN, PROTECT HER AND HER FAMILY FROM THE EVIL SENT HER WAY. WE LOOK TO THEE FATHER TO GUIDE US AND WE TRUST THEE TO COME TO THE AID OF THY PEOPLE.
WE PRAY GOD TO DIRECT AND BLESS US DAY BY DAY THANK THEE FATHER FOR THY GRACE, MERCY, LOVE, GOODNESS, HOPE, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. FOR JESUS SAKE AND IN HIS NAME. AMEN
