The recent Libyan terrorist attack shocked and disgusted us, but it also confirmed just how corrupt our media have become. No longer is it a constitutionally mandated government watchdog, but has become a propaganda arm for the government it is pretending to oversee. The consequences of this unholy alliance is becoming increasingly obvious as we watch our country deteriorate into a Hugo Chavez styled dictatorship. American Patriots, do your part, turn off this perversion of the truth and do your research. You have the greatest research tool the world has ever known right at your finger tips, use it to defeat the Marxist regime currently attempting to take your constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Excerpts from Fox News Article
But the overwhelming bias has become very real and very dangerous. We
have a First Amendment for one reason. We have a First Amendment not
because the Founding Fathers liked the press—they hated the press—but
they believed, as [Thomas] Jefferson said, that in order to have a free
country, in order to be a free people, we needed a free press.

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 or not.

    All media is either influenced by or is the bias. You're either fighting to maintain no bias and censoring yourself so as not to appear to show it, or you're censoring anything that doesn't agree with you. It's all no good. Wipe out all the media moguls and start again.

    The media simply reports, if you want Obama bashing tune in to Fox news, if you romney bashing listen to the world.
    Stay educated..research what you hear, then make an informed decision.

    Well the press was never Constitutionally mandated to be objective, but they were supposed to be morally. Even Faux Snews is a puppet of the NWO, which is what the others are as well. Both they and the government are at enmity with the people.

    Actually the enemy of the American people are the legislators. We have hard fought for monopoly laws, but no one in the government will enforce them. When Rupert Murdoch can own most of the media, what do you expect?

    Dis, I have read accounts, as I'm sure you have, of UK politicians saying, "what was I to do? -The media could BBQ me." I think you will get your wish; he's hiding out and his son is not to be a chosen one. (He probably can't kill and torture people for fun.)

    Follow the money. It all flows from the same place and for the same reason. We used to have monopoly laws; they just need to be enforced. Something like an entity can't own a newspaper and TV station and radio station all overlapping. Or all the newspapers or all the ????

    So, Disappo..this is what concerns me. We are in a revolution; a revolution of our leaders. Wait until the election is over; it will get nasty.

    The elections will continue because they are good for business and cause US to think we have a Democracy and not the Totalitarianism we actually have.

    The Main Stream Media are no longer providers of independant , investigative journalism .

    The LAST of " THE GOOD ONES " has passed away ( Tim Russert ) and who did they replace him with ? .................... David Gregory ???????????? - WTF ? - He is so far to the Left Wing as to be nothing but a joke .
    Peter Jennings was another " GOOD GUY " ( also gone ) .

    The MSM are now nothing more than " The PROPAGANDA Arm Of The New Democrat / Socialist Party " ! -------------- NBC / MSNBC / CNN / Etc. are Clearly Left Wing Propaganda Machines , pumping out lie after lie -and- covering up for this Corrupt Administration !

    Funny... I support obama but I do not support the media. Where does that put me in your spectrum there?

    The media is an irrational, sensationalistic seeking, money hungry institution that lost sight of WHY there is freedom of the press and perverted it in the quest to get rich off of other's misery.

    By all rights , you SHOULD support the lying media , because they Cover Up & Refuse to Report any negitives about your president . Forget the outright lies from
    the MSM . They Always Favor Liberal Democrats ( OBAMA ).

    Having said that , I support your honesty . Where does that put you ?
    Answer : It puts you in a very good light . " You " see these things for what they are and NOT the Propaganda put forth on the Evening News ....... congrats ! You , however are in the minority .

    You are confused between the " TRUE " Right and the " Radical Right " .
    I am a Conservative Libertarian ( basically what a true republican / TEA Party Republican ) is . We don't get as interested in the things that are supposed to be an issue for the STATES , not the Federal Government . " WE " agree that the Constitution means what it says ............... All powers not provided for the government in the Constitution Of The United States ------------------ > Belong To The States !
    " WE " are for SMALLER government !

    The MEDIA leans " FAR LEFT " and this has always been the case for the last 50+ Years at least !

    Media cover for Obama’s failures
    BY STEVE HUNTLEY shuntley.cst@gmail.com September 20, 2012 5:52PM
    Each new day seems to bring further evidence of the unremitting failure of President Barack Obama’s economic and foreign policies. Yet the presidential contest remains even, due in large part to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s failure to articulate a specific economic reform agenda and to the mainstream media’s obsession with what Obama-friendly commentators see as Romney’s gaffes.
    The media narrative is Romney has had a bad couple of weeks with less-than-artful or ill-timed remarks about the growth of government dependency and Obama’s failed foreign policy. Still, Obama has had his own bad couple of weeks, on the economic front as well as abroad — though the media haven’t spotlighted it as they have with Romney.
    New Census Bureau figures show median household income fell or was flat last year in 37 states — mirroring data released a week ago showing national median household income is down to mid-1990s levels. This drop came amid the Obama recovery, the weakest rebound from a recession in modern history.

This drop came amid the Obama recovery, the weakest rebound from a recession in modern history.
    Another report filled in details behind the nation’s persistently high unemployment, 43 months above 8 percent. Small businesses are a prime generator of jobs, yet fewer new firms are being established. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of startups peaked at 667,000 in 2006 and has declined ever since, reaching 548,000 in 2009 and dropping again to 505,000 in 2010, the first full year of the recovery.
    “The state of entrepreneurship in the United States is, sadly, weaker than ever,” observes Tim Kane of the Hudson Institute who analyzed the numbers. He cites “anecdotal evidence that the U.S. policy environment has become inadvertently hostile to entrepreneurial employment.” That includes uncertainty over taxes and regulations, among them the looming new taxes and rules from ObamaCare.
    Further fallout from ObamaCare: It will raise taxes on 6 million Americans for failing to meet its insurance mandate, reports the Congressional Budget Office. That’s 50 percent higher than the previous estimate. Most of that tax hike will fall on the middle class.
    More evidence of the failure of Obama’s economic policies was the Federal Reserve’s announcement of a third round of “quantitative easing” — Fedspeak for printing money to boost Wall Street trading in hopes that will trickle down to more jobs. How effective it will be remains to be seen, but it will keep interest rates at near zero, a disheartening blow to seniors trying to live off their life savings. The Fed policy also will likely fuel commodity prices, meaning higher food and energy costs further eroding household budgets. That is, unless a possibly looming global downturn — meaning more unemployment — depresses oil prices.
    The news is no better on foreign policy. Even the administration is backing away from U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s farcical claim that the wave of anti-American riots were a spontaneous reaction to an obscure Internet video. And Obama’s “reset” with Russia is faring no better than his outreach to the Muslim world. Moscow kicked out the U.S. Agency for International Development, which promotes democracy and human rights, claiming it meddles in Russian politics.
    From the American kitchen table to the U.S. business environment to the unemployment line to the Arab street to Russian diplomacy, Obama’s policies have been a failure. Who wants four more years of that?
