Note: I am bumping this back up top this morning just in case some readers missed it the other night. Very much well worth the time to view it.
Perhaps one of the most damning commentaries to date of the 21st century American MSM’s involvement in the government. And he is a democrat …
In recent remarks to an AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic death of a U.S. ambassador in Libya that was lied about for nine days, because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.
“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.”
Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but “It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.”
I repeat what my instructors at broadcasting school told my class, “If you have become part of the story you are no longer doing your job.”
Somebody please show this video to the Romney campaign. Caddell has some very important advice for them. He is right. Romney is not only running against Obama, but against the MSM. The majority of people in this country do NOT trust the MSM. Romney needs to stand up to them and do it for us.
The levee is bulging here with the MSM, yet they keep on pushing and pushing, as Caddell points out … simply because they are being allowed to get away with it, from both political parties. And by us. We have to bust that dam wide open on November 6th and flood them out, just as we did in the 2010 elections. Defeat them, as well as Obama.
Meanwhile, this video needs to go viral. Andrew Breitbart would be proud.
