Media in America – shameless beyond words

Temlakos~POTL~PWCM~JLA~☆ 2013/01/29 22:39:37
Yes, the American mainstream media are now Obama's Department of Truth.
No, the media had no reason to report anything else. Nothing to see here. Move on.

Why shameless? Well, first we read in the Daily Mail that Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has been consorting with under-age prostitutes from South America for at least the several months that the FBI has investigated him. But why should we read this only in the Daily Mail, and not the New York Times or The Washington Post? And why, when he appeared on ABC-TV's This Week with Martha Raddatz, did she never see fit to mention it?

But that might not be the worst. The worst is that the media, when first reporting on the Sandy Hook Massacre, clearly said that the Bushmaster AR-15 that Adam Lanza carried, stayed in his car the whole time. He did all his killing with two handguns. This video, a compilation of the first reports, clearly catches them all saying that he left the AR-15 in his car.



And then they changed the story, to suggest he used the AR-15 to do his foul deeds, as if they never said he didn't.

That's a lie. A downright lie. And something right out of Nineteen Eighty-four.

So what say you? Did the Mainstream Media turn themselves into an Orwellian Department of Truth while we turned our backs?

    I keep hearing about the approval rate of Congress and the President.

    I wonder what the approval rate of the media is...and why it's never discussed.

    Give it a rest already.

    The slander campaign against Bob Menendez began the minute the Republicans managed to torpedo Susan Rice. Knowing that John Kerry would be appointed Secretary of State, they also knew that Menedez was next in line to chair the Senate Foreign Relations committee, hence the slanders. This entire "investigation" is based on anonymous emails from someone who refused to meet face to face with investigators. As with every other phony manufactured scandal coming from the Right Wing Media, there's nothing to see here.

    As for Newtown, all 26 of the victims were killed with a Bushmaster XM-15 E2S rifle. The only one killed with a handgun was Lanza himself, who committed suicide.

    "It's all these conspiracy theorists that are trying to mucky up the waters," said Vance, the longtime state police spokesman.

    The Daily Heil is not a remotely credible source. Menendez is not under investigation for "consorting with under-age prostitutes" and there's no evidence that he did. The investigation is into whether he took illegal campaign contributions.

    And no, Lanza did not leave the AR-15 in his car. That was an erroneous report shortly after the shooting. It was, in fact, a shotgun that was found in the truck of the car.

    Well, first we read in the Daily Mail...
    That was your first problem.

    Do you honestly believe you are getting the entire story from conservativenewsandviews.com? Is that an ironic joke?

    LOL if so, and LOL to anyone that believes a non-story without a shred of evidence to back it up (prostitutes) should be gaining major media coverage. This is the culmination by a few rabid haters flying to the DRepublic and finding ANYthing they could get to stick to him. If they find evidence that he was having sex with underage girls, then I will want him to be gone as well.

    And then you finish by presenting evidence of exactly how bad information can be right after the event in question. We see about a dozen reporters saying different things, and almost all of them explaining this very thing! "still under investigation", "conflicting reports", "crime scene analysis not complete yet", etc, etc...

    You choose those silly clips of news reporters right after the shooting above ALL other resources? And I mean ALL others. From witnesses inside, to every report by anyone that had access, and I could show you a week of clips from these same reporters that get it right later on.

    You know, after all of the facts were in.

    If the gun was in the car, that would ruin the whole agenda of removing our rights to protect the children.
    As a disabled person who has survived a home invasion, 7 bullets is not enough, I want to make sure a perp is dead, not injured so they can't hurt me further.

    Where is the discussion of the mental health issue?

    Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has his hands full, first his illegal immigrant intern is a registered sex offender and now he's caught with his hands all over teenage prostitutes who will not be protected and face real danger for speaking out about Menendez and Dr Feelgood.
    He is an example of the worst NJ has to offer! Maybe he will get a show on MSNBC or Current, lmao

    see I knew you'd show up
    You do know you have the right and the responsibility (key word) to defend yourself. I want to be as well armed as I can safely defend myself. If you've ever been a victim of a gun crime, you'd think twice about defending yourself.

    I pray that our police officers are safe, well armed, with protection to prevent crimes. I know they cannot be everywhere, and I've experienced the wait times on several occassions.

    The majority of gun crimes and murders are done by criminals. "5% of repeat offenders committ 60% of the gun crimes". www.phillypolice.com

    The gangs and the drug cartels are armed beyond that Bushmaster. Just look up the facts about the Fast and Furious guns connected to hundreds of Mexican citizens and 3 federal agents. Thousands more out there.

    Unreal.

    I guess you missed the recent home invasion where the wife and kids hid out in the attic crawl space and the perp was not dead, she ran out of bullets.
    Lucky for her there was only one man, usually there are more than one.

    You bleeding hearts for criminals is what has made their lives behind bars just to sweet. Free food, beds, cable tv, internet, a gym and a college education too. Must be idiots to waste money on criminals when so many innocent Americans and the victims of these criminals suffer while the perp gets his degree.

    I agree with you that in many cases there are way too many "perks" to prison life. I think if someone is convicted of murder, rape or other serious violent crime they should get enough food and water to live on but that's about it. However, I don't really believe that stiffer penalties or harsher conditions will do very much to cut down on violent crime, since most criminals don't expect to be caught.

    5 year gun laws should be increased to 10 years or higher depending if the perp is a repeat offender. Some of the perps in Philly murders had as many as 11 prior arrests. That is an ourtage, that these killers are let loose.
    Philly has the stats online 5 yr trend increase of all violent crime. 60% of all gun crime is committed by 5% of criminals. www.phillypolice.com
