“It seemed pretty glaringly obvious to me that the ‘news fit to print’ was pretty much the news that’s fit to serve the powerful… The way that the paper’s senior staff think is exactly like those in power — in fact, it’s their job to become their friends.” – former NYT correspondent Daniel Simpson
We see right through the propaganda. As one possibly left-leaning commentator astutely noted in response to a stereotypical hit piece against those who lean politically right:
No doubt there are people infuriated with the government but to suggest that these Faux News watchers are going to take up arms against the government is not supported by the facts. Moreover, those few examples cited appear to be unstable individuals, not politically motivated but listening to audio hallucinations found in young male schizophrenics. Better research and an editor with a sharp pencil might are needed here.
Words matter and loose labels are highly irresponsible. Too much mainstream reporting is perpetuating a hidden agenda in their political projections and culture war aggression. Maybe if all crimes were reported equally – black on black, black on white, and everything in between – rather than fanning the flames in a unilateral direction, the right wing news outlets would not feel the need to overcompensate.
If you only followed mainstream media, you would think Obama was the second coming of Jesus. Well, Jesus does not play favorites and neither should we. We are either for Him or against Him. Faithful believers of every color, race, background, gender, and ethnicity are fit for the Kingdom. He is an equal opportunity redeemer. Look in the mirror, see past your complexion, and decide where you stand!
