‘If the Liberal MSM Doesn’t want to Hear it They will Shut You Down…’

The liberal Juan Williams has had more than one "broken clock moment", especially after the troubles he had with very liberal NPR a couple years ago for expressing his own personal fears about Muslims. Here Williams unabashedly states the truth about the liberal/leftist mainstream media (MSM) in this country.

“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”

Right now the American MSM is self-censoring the news. It has been going on for awhile, but more so at an increased rate over the last several years. They twisted and even invented things during the Bush administration. They did not vet Obama during the 2007-08 democrat primary and general elections. For Obama's first term they remained completely silent on Obama not only keeping in place Bush administration policies he (Obama as senator) and the MSM loudly objected to, but increasing them and extending them to involve American citizens, not just foreign terrorist elements. The American MSM has become the propaganda arm of the Obama administration, the democrats, and the socialist movement in this country. NBC/MSNBC (being the worst) has been caught many times in less than two years of selectively editing video and audio to twist the truth and suit their agenda. During the 2004 election CBS was caught completely fabricating National Guard documents against Pres. Geroge W. Bush in order to tip public opinion to then democrat candidate John Kerry, justifying it with "fake but accurate". The MSM can deny it all they want, and deflect bias allegations onto FOX News, but it is what it is. Just look at cable/network news ratings.

Newsbusters: "Unlike Conservative Media, We Don't 'Make Stuff Up' at MSNBC, Proclaims Ed Schultz"

    Gee, this sounds like, oh, I don't know, Cuba, doesn't it? Imagine that.

  • asombra

    Wait, is that Schultz, or a very puffy Alec Baldwin?

  • asombra

    The MSM is very open-minded. As long as it suits its agenda. This whole business can be summarized very well in what Fidel Castro told (read warned) Cuban intellectuals and artists early on: "With the revolution, everything; against the revolution, nothing." In other words, get with the program or else.

    Oh-oh. This unguarded lucid moment of candid commentary by Williams is going to cost him. Ever since the obama campaign picked up steam in 2012, it appears the left lassoed Williams back into the reservation, and he become shrill and even irrational, especially on the Hannity show. His NPR problem is totally irrelevant; he has made zillion$ on Fox and I only wish he'd take his ca$h and just go AWAY for good. To me, he a far worse hypocrite than Sharpton, because Sharpton is truly deceived and his ideology doesn't let him see anything, so he acts accordingly. But Williams is well aware of the truth and yet takes advantage to make a fortune by going against it and advocating for the indefensible. He is truly pathetic, and not a nice guy as some portray him; nice people don't act that way.

  • I stopped watching Fox years ago...

    I rather like Williams. He still believes in the left, but I see him struggling and I predict one day he will officially become a conservative.

    As I understand it, Williams has a son who is conservative.
