Your New Editor: Big Brother

Posted on January 29, 2013 8:00 am

A pro-Obamacare group is sponsoring a symposium in New York City to train journalists how to report on Obamacare.

Good idea. Heaven forbid some journalist misspells the word “fantabulous”.

    Misspell? It took me two tries to get, perhaps, the correct pronunciation; fan-tab’-u-lus ?
    It may be better in reverse: Obamacare is soo-loo-bat’-naf !!! Why yes, I believe Obamacare is.

    Early in 1933, Hitler’s people used radio, press, and newsreels to stoke fears in the German public then the Nazi’s channeled these common public anxieties into political measures that eradicated civil liberties and democracy.

    Obama is just using a tried and true method. Hitler’s propaganda techniques were extremely successful. Joseph Stalin manipulated the media to his political advantage too. Both of these men were democratically elected and both of the were LOVED by the news media.

    Noted. A B.J. degree no longer necessarily means “Bachelor of Journalism.”

    Surrounded by whooping Republicans and suddenly unfavorable data, chief Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod called in the media cavalry today.And several reporters on the 11:15 a.m. phone conference promptly offered questions that bordered on advice.“Axe, I’m not sure you can hear me, David,” said NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, when she was invited to ask a question Oct. 4. “We are going to hold Gov. Romney accountable for the things he said last night … as I hope you will make him justify those claims, because we need a honest and a genuine and realistic plan to move forward as a country …… ”

    Pat Caddell Says: Media Have Become “Enemy of the American People”

    “We’ve had nine day of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.”

    Obama’s Media Matters Goon Squad
    Investor’s Business Daily ^ | Sept. 18, 2012

    Based on a cache of internal Justice Department e-mails obtained by the Daily Caller, Attorney Gen. Eric Holder’s press staff has been collaborating all along with left-wing media “watchdog” Media Matters to smear any reporter asking uncomfortable questions, to discourage whistle-blowers, to discredit political watchdogs and to suppress damaging news about what’s going on in the Obama administration.

    The Daily Caller found dozens of pages of e-mails between DOJ Public Affairs Director Tracy Schnakler and Media Matters staffers planning and discussing how to attack reporters who covered scandals such as the Black Panther voter suppression case, and the Fast and Furious scandal where DOJ sold thousands of guns to Mexico’s notorious crime cartels — the truth of which DOJ didn’t want to get out.

    Funny that ‘Oppo’ above, see # 3, notes that most Journalists do not now need a “B J” degree.
    Whaaaat,…. they can just ‘earn’ it by O J T ??
    Who wipes off the overspray, and buys the lip balm for them?
    The PowerPoint Presentations have got to be really instructive……… what vegetables do you suppose they use?

    I’m guessing that if someone had told the Founding Fathers that this would someday happen, they would have thought you were crazy.

  6. seanmahair says:

    The fact that no one in the media or the government or apparently the public finds it appalling that a partisan group is “training” journalists how to propagandize health care makes me bilious.

    A long time ago journalists had ethics, now they have tingles running up their legs. What a sad and dangerous thing.

  7. Carpenter says:

    This is the equivalent of the “Nazification” of the American Media. Pat Caddell is correct. The media has become the ‘Enemy Of The American People’.

    This happened In Germany prior to Hitler and in Russia prior to Lenin and Stalin.
