Today I read a fascinating post on Politico by Roger Simon (I was going to link here but apparently they, like liberals, are not into sharing unless they get paid for it ) called “Journolist veers out of bounds”. The article was all about Jounolist and how REAL journalist aren’t in any way biased, bigoted or subjective. How in the not so distant past they were honorable, reasonable, upright individuals who worked to uncover the “bad guys”, right the wrongs, to shine the beacon of truth and justice into the seedy corners of dirty backrooms and elite boardrooms with equal vigor.
I really don’t know where this guy worked but in my spouse’s 20+ years in journalism this has NEVER been the case. To be completely honest there have been some people in the industry who have tried, mostly without much success, to report objectively on the news, but they did not last long. There are editors who slant the news by encouraging biased reporting, but that’s not all. What they allow to be covered, how or by whom it’s covered as well as allowing reporters to use emotionally charged words and phrases to impress their biases on the reader are typical behaviors. For example President Bush was described as uncaring, unfeeling, unattached, a dullard and rube to the folks affected by Hurricane Katrina. President Obama on the other hand is inexperienced, overworked, deliberate, and charismatic when journalists (both print and TV) describe his handling of the Gulf Oil Spill crisis.
Bernie Goldberg in his book biased points out that most journalists go to the same schools, are taught buy the same liberal professors, live in the same neighborhoods, send their children to the same schools. So when they say “No one I know thinks that way” or “Everybody I know is going to vote for (fill in the blank)”, these are true statements. They don’t know any of the “rabble” or the “religious zealots” or the ” common men” and they don’t want to. They have been taught that theirs is a higher calling. They are the keepers of the truth, and if that truth doesn’t agree with yours you simply need to be re-educated. Marx, Lenin, and Stalin had programs for that. Here we have the New York Times.
It’s been decades since we had a press that informed us instead of indoctrinated. They have sold their souls to the devil that is the Soros controlled Democratic Party. They are no longer interested in protecting the little guy, they are interested in re-distributing wealth so that one party and one party only will remain in charge. It will be interesting in the days to come to see just how many of the little people, the ones who actually worked for a living, start giving up on the system and decide that since people have been making money off their backs for years, it’s time for them to get their share. Then who’s going to pay the bills? Who’s going to pick up trash, be plumbers, electricians, treatment plant workers, build cars, roads and the rest of the things we need in order to have a civil successful society?
Oh wait I forgot, thats why the Democrats are importing foreign labor, my bad. I guess the press won’t cover that either, unless it’s to cover the liberal hind end.
Which in reality is all they’re good for now anyway.
