They Own The Media & I Want No Part

I had this post worked out in my head, knew how I wanted to start and what I wanted to say. But when I finally sat down to type it all out it all went away. That happens to me a lot. So I'll just have to start in the middle. We have a government that's actively targeting a media outlet trying damage them however they can. Even going so far as to send their attack dogs, Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, out this weekend to inform other media outlets to ignore FNC and to not treat them like "real" news. I find this all just a little disturbing. And, like the good little lapdogs they are, the rest of the media just eat it up. They cheer lead for the policies of this administration and ignore stories, until they've been forced to finally mention them. ACORN and Van Jones for example. Another example is Anita Dunn. Has anyone seen other news outlets talk about her comments on Mao Tse Tung? And chances are you never will. Media outlets in this country have become nothing more than mouthpieces for the Obama administration, which is why I have made the conscious decision to block CNN, HLN & MSNBC from my television. I can no longer, in good conscience, watch them knowing that they have no problem being manipulated like puppets.

The statements themselves, made by Emanuel, Axelrod and Dunn, aren't as scary as the fact that they're saying these things openly. They know full-well that FOX will report on these brazen statements, so must feel they cannot be touched.

It's dangerous for our country when the government doesn't fear the media.

I disagree with how the White house is handling FOX News. It comes off as petty and immature and politics as usual. Yes, FOX News is biased – but so are the other cable news outlets. The White House should correct the errors FOX News makes (like accusing the White House Safe Education Czar of condoning pedophilia – which was completely false and eventually corrected by FOX, though you never corrected it) not ignore them. What Anita Dunn said about Mao Tse Tung was certainly stupid but you were willing to forgive Glenn Beck calling the President a racist who has a deep-seated hatred for white people.
