I Report I'll Let You Decide

Updated on July 22, 2010

I’ll report and let you decide

To adjust a phrase used by the Fox News channel.

I have long suspected that the news media wasn’t just biased and bent towards liberalism. I have long suspected that they conspire to do so.

I also suspected there was a vast mainstream media worship of Mr. Obama.

I tried to believe those who would argue that it was just that they socialized within their own liberal bubbles. They worked in liberal/socialist leaning work environments, no harm is intended, no conspiracies transpire. However, I’m thinkin’ maybe these latest developments lends credence to the conspiracy theorists.

Take for example “professional” journalists – using the term “professional” here very, very loosely – who were positively giddy and deeply and emotionally energized by the Obama’s Presidential win. Given what we know today, if these quotes can be attributed to these supposed professionals, then we have our proof, have we not? OBAMA WINS

To my knowledge – we do not know of any repudiation by these icons of the mass media who thought they were sharing their true inner feelings in private.

Was the media complicit in assisting to cover up the news of Reverend Wright when it first broke? Documents show media plotting to kill stories about Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Here’s what appears to be journalists discussing the federal government censoring/shutting down Fox News. Warning –some graphic language.

This is only one source admittedly – but seems to be interesting information that at least deserves further investigation.

      Where is Edward R Murrow? Remeber the comment made by Obama. When asked a question at a "news conference" he said he struggled all night with the thought, then rolled over in bed and asked Brian Williams what he thought. What more do you need to know.

      We should start to teach our children fairness at a small age. That means not being biased and show integrity in life.

      Carol,in my opinion, I feel the Founding Fathers had every intent for the free press to be the eyes and ears of the people thus willing to expose the evil and underhanded ways of those who would attempt to manipulate our freedoms and our governing principles. Somewhere along the way journalism became both commercial and political. The public was sold out and in turn the press was used against our freedoms and governing principles just as the Communist stated was their intentions in their states goals of 1963. Now with people like George Soros actively involved in the ownership of many media outlets around the country, there is no doubt that the information is skewed and at times literally ignored. Fox must be attacked and painted black in order to shut them up and get them in line with the rest of the losers who are so-called "reporting the facts" over the networks and news wires. The Internet provides a lot of information if it is properly used and there is no reason for an American today to be ignorant on subjects that are critical to our welfare as a country yet I am continually amazed at how many people blindly follow what is taking place with the Obama Administration and Congress and see no threat or danger to our future. There's no need to sneak up on these people, you can easily taken from the front in broad daylight. Thanks for an enlightening article. WB

      I don't know Outdoorsguy - while there's breath there's hope. While there are still people in this country who turn to God, I have great faith that it is possible to have our country recover. I'm not giving up the ship yet!

      "If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

      just when I thought I couldnt be surprised anymore. wow. talk about lack of Ethics, morals and common sense. I would even go so far as to say it borders on Illegal. an attempt to affect an election. of course those in power wont do a thing about it.

      this is one of those times I doubt seriously America will be able to recover from the damage thats been done to it.

      Ill end with the what two of the founding fathers had to say.

      "Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society." John Adams

      "The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers." Thomas Jefferson

      Great hub. What an utter disgrace. We know that we are not being given the news by the main street media and we have known it for a long time. But to find out that not reporting the news and actively trying to discredit Palin was an orchestrated campaign is frightening.

      I knew the Lamestream media had gone in the tank for Liberals when I saw Dan Rather interview George H. W. Bush and disrespect him in 1988.

      I said Fox was wrong Sheri - and it's not perfect - but it's still ABSOLUTELY the best thing out there! Just as you said! And it is definitely the left and the left loon media that perpetuates the race card that the Left always pulls out. Which of course dilutes actual racism - again - just as you said!

      Hi! When I think about it, who has always told us about the great ethics of journalists?

      How's the family? Is your son still in the Service? Or home for good? I'm sure others would enjoy knowing how the reunion is going and whether we can all breathe easier for them.

      I am sure you know that Hannity says journalism died during the '08 prez campaign. At least more folks are waking up and paying attention, and know that Fox is the ONLY fair media outlet, as evidenced by their huge ratings. The smarmy, unfair and completely tilted--to the left--reporting from these MSM outlets is really beyond the pale. Further, these trumped up FALSE claims of racism against anyone not embracing socialism, are just harming EVERYONE, especially TRUE victims of racism!!
