Jon Voight: Obama Has Taken Over Media 'In No Less A Way' Than Chavez Has In Venezuela By Noel Sheppard Created 08/29/2012 - 2:39pm
"The media has been overtaken by the Obama administration in no less a way than Hugo Chavez took over media in Venezuela.
Such was said Wednesday by actor Jon Voight during a Spreecast with Steve Malzberg (video follows with transcribed highlights, relevant section nine minutes in):
After Malzberg noted some of the media censorship of minorities speaking at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Voight said, Ive been talking about this in the press, and I said, I made a statement a couple of days ago, I said the mainstream media, the media has been overtaken by the Obama administration in no less a way than Hugo Chavez took over media in Venezuela.
Voight continued, I never dreamed Id see the day when the main media would refuse to cover the Republican convention, and would edit the Republican convention just as you suggested.
Anybody in my business knows that editing is everything," Voight added. "You can make anything look good or bad or whatever. You can create all sorts of, you know, emotional impressions with editing.
So this is propaganda pure and simple, said Voight. There is no Democratic Party anymore. Its a propaganda party, Ive been saying that. And thats what were dealing with. So it is a fight against lies and distortion.
Boy ain’t that the truth.
Barry has truly made it the “state run media”. It’s no different than what any other fascist dictator does. To own the people, a dictator must own the “media” first.
Jon Voight couldn't have said it better.
Obama and thugs, Reid, Pelosi, Schultzy and the enemedia.
Not a thing but garbage programming on the alphabet channels from 8 til 11 on Tuesday night.
I haven’t cable or satellite so there’s a network/obama blackout on on-the-air exposure to the opposition party.
This is what Dictator’s do.
“John Voight for President! I love this guy.”
That’s what I kept suggesting before the primary, but no one wanted to hear it....they were all behind someone who kept them dangling for months and never did run, but didn’t have the decency to say she wasn’t running in the first place.
Fred Thompson screwed up the last primary, this time it was Palin and her fan club. But I don’t expect much better from MCCAIN sycophants.
All of the media are owned by corporations. No one controls corporations. It is a wonder that Angelina isn’t more stupid.
Exactly right! OUCH!!!! That’s going to leave a mark.
Unfortunately, no one will know what Voit has said because the msm won’t be getting it out in front of the public. I really despise this administration and it’s criminal elements.
and because you can paste so many cool quotes...you’re Einstein
No, this was just several parts of the big Marxist puzzle clicking together.
“Barry has truly made it the state run media. Its no different than what any other fascist dictator does. To own the people, a dictator must own the media first.”
I think it’s more the case that the media owns Barry or any liberal candidate. It is their tune liberal politicians dance to. The MSM should have to declare as a party.
What we have is media candidates...the ones they decide to promote.
I second that.
Would you want to be associated with ZERO??
Everyone- write letters to every young journalist, editor, reporter, camera and sound guys, etc and tell them the facts of life. Maybe in a decade or so, their individual perspectives will have snapped out of this ‘cultiplication’ they’ve been programmed to proliferate.
