Most of us go about our daily lives, passingly interested in the news, hoping that what we hear is the truth. (Not me, of course.)
We probably never think about the individuals that decide what we hear or don't hear.
We probably don't stop to think that about 90% of those individuals are far-left Democrats.
Then we wonder why the LA Times will not release a certain video of Barack Obama. Are they not in the news business? Would they not make a lot of money by attracting a lot of viewers to their web site? What are they in business for if not for scoops?
You, the average Joe or Josephine, must be the ones who'll put a fork in the Major Media. You buy their papers and watch their news broadcasts. Why would you want to give your time and money to a group of people who think you only deserve scraps of truth?
Fox News has a story on a report that shows how McCain has received almost 60% negative coverage in the Media, while Obama is less than 30%. In other words, negative coverage of McCain is 100% more than negative coverage of Obama; McCain gets twice the amount of negative coverage.
Hearken back to the 90's - the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Most of you probably don't know or remember that Newsweek sat on this story for about a week. They had the scoop on the biggest scandal of the 90's (outside of Clinton ignoring terrorist attacks, which is only a scandal in retrospect) and they sat on the story.
Drudge became a household name after he broke the story. And now his site is one of the most viewed sites on all of the web. But Washington Post-owned Newsweek didn't think it would be good to run the story.
Now, here we are with the LA Times hiding a video for Barack Obama. In this video, he purportedly toasts a man, Rashid Khalidi, with strong ties to the PLO, and thus terrorism. And his terrorist friend Bill Ayers was also there, praising Khalidi.
Quotes from the story at Fox News:
"Khalidi was a frequent dinner guest at the Obama's home and at his farewell dinner in 2003 Obama joined the unrepentant terrorist William Ayers in giving testimonials on Khalidi's role in the community," McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb said in a written statement. "The election is one week away, and it's unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job -- make information public."
