The Fall of Main Stream Media

You, know, folks, here is another post that is difficult to type...but I feel that the contents that I'm going to put here really need to be looked at again. Maybe three or four times, just so one can get it fixed in their heads with certainty that something is not quiet right with the American Media.

I'm not going to whitewash this, grumble about how I use to hold such respect for our nation's media [but I did] or how it's only a few of them [it's not]...No, from what I'm reading and understanding, about 80% of the Main Stream Media [MSM], are bought and paid for by special interest groups, political parties and the US Federal Government. They are plainly trying to control and dictate American Elections by their own admittance and via their actions. I've written about this subject before here and here.

Looking back over the past few weeks, there are a few displays of dishonor and lack of integrity by the MSM that should never be forgotten in MSM history.

[Branstad's Act of Sabotage An Outrageous Attempt to Tamper With Election Process by: Paul Watson]



[excerpt]
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad’s rhetorical act of sabotage against his own state’s Republican primary, with his insistence that a potential Ron Paul victory should be ignored, represents an outrageous attempt to tamper with the election process.

As we reported earlier, Branstad told Politico that a Paul victory in the primary should be dismissed, urging Republicans to ignore the legitimacy of the result if the Texan Congressman comes out on top, which recent polls suggest he has a very good chance of doing. Politico adds that many fear “such a result….would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.”

“People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,” said Branstad, adding, ““If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states,” comments taken to mean that Republicans should “ignore” Ron Paul, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns.

[...]

If Branstad is rooting for anyone, it’s clearly Mitt Romney. Prominent Romney supporters are even trying to groom Branstad into becoming a candidate for Vice President under a Romney administration.

“1996 GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole broached the idea of Branstad as No. 2 on the ticket. Dole reportedly called Branstad this weekend to let him know he would be endorsing Mitt Romney for president, and said he’d like to recommend Iowa’s governor as a possible running mate,” reports USA Today.

Branstad downplayed his interest in the role, but said he was “flattered” to be considered.

CBS Reporter Blatantly Excludes Ron Paul From Coverage by: Steve Watson]
[Excerpt]










Going into New Hampshire and ahead of two debates this weekend, Paul was polling in strong second, as he has been for some time. However, That did not stop CBS political correspondent Jan Crawford from showing graphics and talking about recent polling, without even mentioning Paul’s numbers or even that he was involved in the race at all.

Crawford even used a graphic referencing a Suffolk University Poll of New Hampshire voters, omitting Paul’s numbers, even though he came second, and was the only candidate other than Mitt Romney to poll in double figures.

[CNN'S Dana Bash "Worried" About Ron Paul's Success by: Kurt Nimmo and Paul Watson]



[Excerpt]
On January 2, Dana Bash told her husband, CNN anchor John King, that is she “worried” about Ron Paul’s success today in New Hampshire.

She said it concerns her and establishment Republicans that he will continue to push on with his campaign through the spring and summer right up to the election.

[...]

Note that it is Bash who has been tasked with following Ron Paul around on behalf of CNN. Paul’s campaign yesterday cut off an interview with her after she tried to blame Paul for the media swarm in a New Hampshire restaurant that forced Paul to cut short a meet and greet, a fracas that was wholly a creation of the media itself.

If this is honest, non biased, reporting, I'd hate to see what IS.

Before the whole world, their contempt and tampering with American Politics is sticking out like a sore thumb.

Why do they do this? Because of their party affiliations. They want Americans to believe that if you vote for a libertarian, 3rd party, or for any party other than that of the Democrat or Republican Party - that they can't win. ha! After many decades of that type *brainwashing* it just might be true...

I've even had people tell me that I HAVE to vote Republican or Democratic...otherwise, I'm throwing my vote away......

That is a lie - A damn lie.

My challenge is for anyone to show me a Federal or State [Georgia] law that says I can only vote Dem or Repub - and for no other candidate/party, even though they be a legit candidate/party on the ballet.

Show me the law or shut up the nonsense/lies.

It is my legal right to vote my conscience...and that I will do.

Ron Paul may not go on to win the GOP - but his platform, the very idea of freedom and liberty is awakening the American people - and is our future.

America, indeed the world, is now witnessing the downfall of American Media as well as the death throes of the Republican and Democratic Parties...Good riddance. It can't come soon enough.

This from the Congressional Record 1917:

The CHAIRMAN: The Chair will recognize the gentleman from Texas, a member of the [defense appropriations] committee.

Mr. CALLAWAY: Mr. Chairman, I ask unanimous consent to insert in the Record a statement that I have of how the newspapers of this country have been handled by the munitions manufacturers.

The CHAIRMAN: The gentleman from Texas asks unanimous consent to extend his remarks in the Record by inserting a certain statement. Is there any objection?

Mr. MANN: Mr. Chairman, reserving the right to object, may I ask whether it is the gentleman's purpose to insert a long list of extracts from newspapers?

Mr. CALLAWAY: No; it will be a little, short statement not over 2 ½ inches in length in the Record.

The CHAIRMAN: Is there any objection?

There was no objection.

Mr. CALLAWAY: Mr. Chairman, under unanimous consent, I insert into the Record at this point a statement showing the newspaper combination, which explains their activity in the war matter, just discussed by the gentleman from Pennsylvania [Mr. MOORE]:

“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, ship building and powder interests and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States.

“These 12 men worked the problems out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.

“This contract is in existence at the present time, and it accounts for the news columns of the daily press of the country being filled with all sorts of preparedness arguments and misrepresentations as to the present condition of the United States Army and Navy, and the possibility and probability of the United States being attacked by foreign foes.

“This policy also included the suppression of everything in opposition to the wishes of the interests served. The effectiveness of this scheme has been conclusively demonstrated by the character of the stuff carried in the daily press throughout the country since March, 1915. They have resorted to anything necessary to commercialize public sentiment and sandbag the National Congress into making extravagant and wasteful appropriations for the Army and Navy under false pretense that it was necessary. Their stock argument is that it is 'patriotism.' They are playing on every prejudice and passion of the American people.”
