And it is not about “extreme religious views” as much as it is about an ideology. If Arabs and Muslims can identify it in the Middle East, why can’t Americans also? It is simply because jihadi propaganda has already penetrated our advising body and fooled many of our decision-makers into dropping the ideological parameters.

That’s right, and it wasn’t only Katie Couric. For the past two years, when Obama was in campaign mode and after his ACORN- and foreign-money-fueled election, the entire leftwing media debased what once passed for legitimate journalism. With absolute consistency, they:
TYRANNY OF THE AMERICAN MEDIA
As UK columnist and commentator Gerald Warner asks: “Why is it that the true view of Resident Barack Obama (you know, the illegal alien living over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington) is openly expressed in the major media around the world, but nary a word of it is printed in any of the newspapers in the United States? Increasingly, the red god of Islamic communism in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, is becoming more immune from scrutiny from the media out of fear of the race word. Whenever he is criticized for his un-American actions, his communist actions, or the out-and-out theft of the wealth of the American people, those who criticize him are accused of being racist. That’s a First Amendment travesty.”
That travesty is because most in the American media are liberals, including a majority of writers and TV and radio people who are not well-paid but still thrilled to be working in the field. Overwhelmingly they take their marching orders from their bosses. Which leads to the obvious question: Why are so many media moguls liberals – you know, the people who flourish in this competitive world, thrive on free-market capitalism, and like their taxes low and their government non-intrusive. Perhaps it’s the megalomania that often comes with being a head honcho. Call it the oligarch mentality, liking the notion of the few at the top calling the shots for the many beneath them.
Or maybe it’s the oh-too-cozy relationship between news and entertainment, the latter traditionally steeped in bleeding-heart causes and “feelings” and the former both eager and happy to be included in their lavish self-congratulatory affairs, the latest of which – the Screen Actors Guild Awards – led the “news” and featured Hollywood liberals dripping with bling while thousands of Haitians lay buried or dead beneath tons of rubble.
It is this same media that foisted Obama onto the national stage by failing to do their jobs professionally and with integrity. Like a collective of Dr. Frankensteins, they created their own monster. It is relevant to mention here that after nearly 3,000 innocent Americans were murdered by Islamic terrorists on September 11, 2001, one of Obama’s closest friends and colleagues, Rev. Jeremiah Wright – whom the media significantly chose not to expose for his rank anti-American, anti-white, and anti-Semitic ravings – whipped his congregation into a joyful frenzy when he said that the chickens (of revenge) had come home to roost (on American imperialism). Translation: Big bad America got what she deserved!
The accumulated weight of Obama’s deceit is overwhelming…
* During his campaign for the presidency and since, Obama repeatedly assured us that he would protect Medicare against cuts; but he now presses for passage of bills that include savage cuts in Medicare.
* To obtain passage of his first stimulus bill, Obama assured us that 90% of the jobs created would be in the private sector; but as he well knew, most of them were to be in the p! ublic sector.
* Early in the health care debate, Obama assured us that he had not said that he favored a single payer system; but he was on record as having said exactly that.
* Obama gave primary voters a firm assurance that if he became the nominee of the Democratic party he would (unlike Hillary Clinton) abide by the campaign finance limits of public funding; but as soon as he became the party’s nominee, he reneged on that pledge.
* During the presidential campaign Obama criticized the presence of former lobbyists in the Bush administration and solemnly assured us that he would appoint no lobbyists to his administration; but once elected he proceeded to appoint even more lobbyists than his predecessors.
* Obama criticized the size of George Bush’s deficit and promised to stop deficit spending if elected; but he has already quadrupled the size of the deficit he objected to and recklessly continues new federal spending in the trillions.
America is in the middle of a journalism crisis. The liberal left that began to educate and teach at our colleges have not taught people how to be reporters, journalists, or even newscasters, they have been taught to be cheerleaders for the far left of America. It is time for them to receive a wake up call from Americans. It is time facts were presented, not opinion, during the alleged news.
B. Hussein Obama didn’t create the State Run Media, it was created a long time ago, on college classes throughout America. Olberman, Matthews, Couric, Stephanopolus, Maddow and the rest are just the latest batch of cheerleaders for the left. Walter Cronkite, during the Vietnam War was a first class cheerleader for the left, the communists and anyone who even appeared like they posed a threat to America. But, the latest batch of people, who consider themselves reporters, journalists and broadcasters, lack the guts, courage, instinct and integrity, but mostly integrity, to tell the truth and let the people make up their own minds. It is as if the left were trying to limit what we see and hear, so we couldn’t put the big picture together……no…..couldn’t be.
It is time for us to act like a free people and demand that we be given the news in a concise, factual, accurate manner, without opinion, or intention to deceive, mislead, or herd us into socialism and an eventual Islamic Caliphate, as directed by the Muslim Brotherhood. It is time for us to demand that the media stop being politically correct, for it is getting people killed. Let the truth be told and if those who do not like the truth become agitated or violent (can you say “Islam”…….I knew you could) then it isn’t the questions that concern them, but the answers they found. Lets face it, in a society where you eat with your right hand because you wipe your ass with your left and you will not eat pork because it is a filthy animal, maybe, just maybe, the bi-polar prophet was wrong and it is time to join the civilized world. The Muslim President of the united States of America must step up and begin to accept his faults. He does not need the media to cheerlead for him, this is America, not American Idol.
America, it is time to wake up and stop feeding the beast that is the State Run Media. It is time to stop watching inaccurate news. It is time to stop tuning into misleading news. It is time to write the networks, the local TV stations, the radio stations and flood them with complaints about what they are doing. Send them emails. Flood them with faxes. Do not watch and do not buy from their advertisers. Go to your local stations and demand answers. Protest. Picket. Use the tactics of the left and file FCC complaints for their unhinged and unbalanced, opinion focused news. The individual anchors who tell these lies and state the untruths must also be held accountable. Go to http://www.fbi.gov and file a criminal complaint online against the anchors for sedition, each and every time they utter something Un-American, counter to our troops, lie, mislead and generally provide aid and comfort to our enemy during their newscasts. Note the date, time, offender, channel in your area and network. If enough of us do this, it will cause the same type of Cloward-Piven crash of the system that the libs are trying to do to America. We have an election looming on the horizon and it is imperative that we make these traitors speak the truth on the news. The State Run Media will do all they can to push B. Hussein Obama’s Marxist agenda as we move towards the elections. They attacked Bush for eight years, no, make that nine years, because they are still helping the man-child blame Bush for the failures of the Obama administration. They are dangerous and tailor the news to fit their agenda. Will you stop them?
