The National Enquirer wants to get a Pulitizer. This is priceless. The magazine the started out covering the supernatural, the private lives of celebrities and so called “miracle” cures for everything from asthma to multiple personality disorder. They go through peoples garbage, they hire helicopters to invade their privacy and when all else fails they make things up or as they would say embellish the truth.
Well why not. Obama got a Nobel Prize for DOING absolutely nothing. His prize was for simply articulating hope and change. The Enquirer actually does things. Of course, most of what they do is lack luster at best, in tremendously bad taste at worst. Since the main stream media (MSM) are missing in action I guess something has to fill the void. Becoming the mouthpiece of the Liberal Left has taken newspapers and magazines out of the real news business and dumbed them down to the level of your average scandal sheet. No longer can the people trust the media to be fair and balanced, not when they cover one issue from only one angle.
Take Global Warming as a glaring example. Since the release of the “hacked” climate emails, the media has continued to prop up the claims of “climate change” when it is obvious to even the most scientific challenged that the data just isn’t there to support those claims. Just this week the UN has had to backtrack yet again on it’s “Glaciers melting” hysteria because the science just isn’t there to back up the outrageous claims. Do we here about this in the MSM? No, and if we do it’s buried on page 10 under the fold next to an ad for Colon Cleansers. How many local papers except in Massachusetts covered in any depth the Scott Brown phenomenon? How may news outlets on television made fun of, slandered and or libeled Mr. Brown his family, supporters and ancestors? How many Chicken Littles (Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, et al) declared the world would end should this one man be elected to “Ted Kennedy’s seat”. As Senator Brown so clearly put it “With all due respect this is not the Kennedy’s seat, it’s not the Democrats seat, it’s the people’s seat.
For too long journalists have believed that they are the experts on, well, everything. They know what’s best for us. They have fallen into the Liberal trap of believing “we the people” need mommies not leaders, information not propaganda. In fact they have become what the National Enquirer has always been a scandal sheet , just like the rest, run by the most unprofessional, unscrupulous, unmitigated ambulance chasers to ever live on this planet. The difference is that the MSM truly believes it is different, better, on a higher, more professional level than the Enquirer. With this claim to one of journalisms most coveted prize we see the truth. There is no difference between the National Equirer and the New York Times. None at all.
