Senator Karen Johnson — Contempt for the Media
When candidate Obama was found to have associated with domestic terrorist Bill Ayres, the media pretended it wasn’t so. Not wishing to appear stupid, the public accepted the denials.When discrepancies appeared in Obama’s birth record, the media denied it and demonized anyone who pursued the story.
Not wishing to appear stupid, Congress accepted the media story, and refused to investigate.And so it goes, the media pushing one lie after another. The mother of all media lies, of course, is 9/11. On that grim day, millions of Americans watched the World Trade Center collapse straight down into its own footprint. The collapse demonstrated 14 perfect characteristics of a controlled demolition. Some viewers recognized it as such as they watched the buildings disintegrate into clouds of explosive dust on live television. Some mainstream media reporters, such as Dan Rather, also noticed the similarities to controlled demolition, and they spontaneously reported it that way as the drama unfolded on September 11th.But eventually the media masters spun a different story. According to the media, the World Trade Center Towers all collapsed as a result of fires. This despite the fact that steel skyscrapers don’t collapse from fire. Never have, never will. Congress and many members of the public, however, not wishing to appear stupid, accepted the official media story.But wait! Hundreds of REAL experts architects, engineers, physicists, and other scientists then stepped forward to study the evidence at the building site and concluded that the World Trade Center buildings, including Building 7, did indeed come down as a result of controlled demolition. The real experts found that real explosives had been placed in the buildings to cause them to collapse into a neat pile, in the same manner as buildings that are demolished by wrecking crews. These real experts reported their real forensic and eye-witness evidence. The media charlatans ignored them, however, and stuck to the hoax. And many Americans, not wishing to be thought stupid, accepted the media lie.Style without substance. Talent without truth. Skill without integrity. Today’s news is filled with lies … and with sex, Hollywood trash, buffoonery, and adolescent nonsense. But the corruption goes beyond the newsrooms and editorial desks. It pervades the entire broad spectrum of the mainstream media, including the entertainment media, as well. Whether you seek to relax with music, television, sports, or movies, you cannot escape the lies cultivated by every branch of today’s media.A perfect example is the July 4th PBS broadcast a few weeks ago of the annual Independence Day celebration from the capitol grounds in Washington, D.C. This is our yearly opportunity to pay tribute to the heroes and patriots who gave their blood to birth our nation and earn the freedom we enjoy. It is a celebration of liberty and the greatness of America. The program is always filled with patriotic songs, military marches, and hymns of praise to God for the blessings of freedom. Well, almost always. This year’s program included not one but two selections from the 1961 movie musical, “West Side Story.”Many are probably unaware that “West Side Story,” a tale of Puerto Rican immigrants in New York City, has enjoyed a recent revival after being discovered and embraced by today’s Hispanic immigrants. Indeed, “West Side Story” has become the darling of the Hispanic community. Actress Jennifer Lopez is said to have watched the film 37 times while growing up. Others proclaim that West Side Story “captures the essence of the immigrant experience in the United States.” That it “gives immigrants a voice.”The first selection from West Side Story…..
