Pat Caddell slams the media: They have become an “enemy of the people”
The Right Scoop ^ | 9/29/2012

Posted on 09/29/2012 12:40:46 PM PDT by Southnsoul

Pat Caddell gave a fantastic speech to Accuracy in Media on the media and how starting in the 1980s they stopped holding both sides to the same level of accountability. He focuses a fair amount on Benghazi-gate but also mentions a few other things including the media’s silence on David Plouffe receiving $100k from an Iranian front group for giving 2 speeches. Caddell totally nails it by saying that the media has now become a danger to America and an enemy of the people.

Whose air are you going to go on? I’m not trying to be snarky I am seriously asking where you think you will get national media coverage.

I am so, SO grateful to this man.

Our country is at the mercy of a deliberate and successful effort to NOT cover stories that have great import to the citizens.

It is terrifying.

I can almost hear the first debate question to his excellency: What is your favorite color. First question to Romney: You were active at Bain Capital when x number of jobs went over seas, some people were laid off, some lost their health care during reorgainzations, how do you sleep at night?

If Romnuts has any gonads at all, when he gets the first question, whatever it is, he should look right into the camera and say: Do you wish to hear this dribble questions to the guy to my right here or would you rather hear his commentary about why the economy is in the toilet 4 years after he promised to fix it.

““enemy of the people” ... Yes about 50 years ago.”

It actually all started in 1917.

FDR was a continuance.

Actually, the reading and research I have done takes it all the way back to the end of the civil war.

The KKK was begun by progressive, or communist democrats from the south.

The complete sellout of the news media started in the 1960's with the most popular news couple of the day, the Huntley and Brinkley report.

Is it true that Valerie Jarrett, O’bummer’s handler was born in Iran?

I hope the Romney campaign starts listening to this guy. He is brilliant.

I like his idea of calling out specific reporters, basically keeping track of the news coverage, making a big deal about the bias observed in the media and, more importantly, making a big issue of things not reported. Calling out the reporter and new service by name will force them to change their coverage. Most of the public will approve. Obama already uses this tactic even though the media is completely in the tank for him.

The MSM is the enemy of the people that hides behind the 1st Amendment.

That's ok. We have the 2nd Amendment.

I agree. Ignoring them or boycotting them won't work. We have to go after them hammer and tongs and rip their guts out for all to see. Humiliation and invalidation is the way to get to their soft underbelly. In all things turn the light back on them.

You hit on a good strategy. Head hunting. Go after specific individuals relentlessly. The high value targets.

If approached, snap their pictures and film THEM. Record their off-camera voices. Seize the initiative. WE are the initiative. Question THEM.

Well I read on a blog years ago that Chrissie Matthews may have, may be, cheating on his IRS Federal taxes, and that he has a lot of millions in Swiss banks accounts. I don’t know if true or not. We need answers.

But when the press’s speech is bought by the word and censored by the White House, it’s not freedom anymore. Now, for Islamic censorship to take hold, threats of violence to silence their tongues and pens forever are not far behind.

I remember Chris Matthews specifically said he received a bonus of $100,00 on 0bama’s win from 0bama. Money talks bull$hit, too, and has made it a language.

See, this is now asymmetrical warfare, right here in this space. WE are each a warrior now, and our boots have to be on the ground. WE do it. When the opposition is large, we use our size and maneuverability to our advantage. We gather our info and weaponize ourselves. It is our ideals and information that become our assets. We are our own greatest weapons.

That's the spirit. That's exactly what I'm talking about. As others have said the press has been changing the paradigm for some time now. The rest of us have only reacted by trying to increase our debating skills. But they aren't debating they are creating the reality they want accepted by the masses.

Breitbart started fighting back but I'm not sure even he fully appreciated that the fight isn't with the so-called information the press is delivering but with the press itself. Caddell has and he is right.

To be absolutely clear to everyone reading this this isn't about character assassination this about character exposure. We have to destroy them but not with their tactics of lies and misinformation. We will need to gain credibility by exposing their lack of credibility with the truth. There is no shortage of that at all but it will be uphill to dig it out and source it and down and dirty to wreck their lives with it.

The biggest challenge may simply be to change our perspective and redirect our focus from reacting to what the press is feeding us to who the press is and what their motives are. Where ever possible the spotlight has to be turned back on the press and away from the subject they are shining it on. It's time to grill them and force them to defend every word they say.
