We have known for a long time that the media is biased toward the President and the Democrats. We watch with incredulity as news services and networks toil around the clock to protect and promote their party. But have we really considered how serious the demise of the fourth estate is to the future of our nation?
Pat Caddell, in an impassioned speech to the AIM (Accuracy in Media) conference, blistered the media on a number of fronts:
“I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.”
He is furious that the truth about the circumstances of an American ambassador’s death was hidden by the media, to protect the administration, for nine days.
“We’ve had nine days 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.”
Caddell said he is more frightened now than has ever been.
“When they decide that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people. And it is a threat to the very future of this country if…we allow this stuff to go on.”
Caddell reveals truths about the corruption in our media as only an insider could. “You get what you ask for,” was his final blast of frustration. Here is the main part of his chilling presentation.
