No More Free Press

MSNBC (along with the rest of NBC) had clearly went from being a member of the independent media to working for the Obama administration as an unpaid staffer. Their reporting–again, I use the term loosely–clearly shows a lack of integrity and professionalism.

CNN, ABC, and CBS have also gone the way of MSNBC in terms of how they reported on the activities of the Obama administration as well. Some examples would be CNN airing a performance by a group of students from an Atlanta area charter school promoting Obamacare, another would be ABC airing Obama’s infomercial about healthcare and prohibiting the airing of a commercial with an opposing viewpoint, and in a sad attempt to become relevant,  Katie Couric calling the healthcare opponents “fear(ful) and ignorant.”

Now, it seems that the Associated Press has joined the ranks. Michael Blood, who wrote an article about the Tea Party Express kick-off in Harry Reid’s hometown, makes the following statement about the black congressmen walking through the protestors just prior to the healthcare vote:

“…and some black lawmakers said they heard racial epithets coming from the demonstration. It’s not known who made the remarks described by the lawmakers…”

However, he made the following statement about Andrew Breitbart who spoke at the rally in Nevada.

“…Andrew Breitbart disputed any suggestion …tea party activists were involved, although he didn’t provide any evidence…”

Notice the double standard. The black congressmen can accuse the Tea Party protestors of racism without any evidence, and it becomes national news. Breitbart disputes their claim, and it becomes a court proceeding.

For his part, Breitbart is offering $100,000 for verifiable proof that someone hurled racial epithets at the congressmen. Amazingly, no one has come forth to claim the “ransom.”

So, it seems that our rights are being trampled. With the Associated Press joining the likes of MSNBC, the American people will no longer have the benefit of a free and independent press.
