To the Times of Ti:
I agree with the editors concerning the “dutifully silent” media. However, it would’ve been nice to point out who the guilty parties are? Which media haven’t been doing their jobs in reporting the stories of the day?
Allow me to name names. MSNBC is at the top of the list; CBS, ABC and NBC news follow close behind; print media moguls NY Times and Washington Post and then online media such as the Huffington Post, The Daily Kos, etc. have been in lock-step with liberal-progressive schemes.
No longer do they question the agenda, for indeed, they have been complicit with that agenda.
The President has laughed off some of the accusations; pretending not to take them seriously. When a critical question is offered up he essentially quotes the Great & Wonderful Wizard of Oz, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.“
I disagree, however, with the assesssment that responsible reporting has been “non-existent”. On the contrary, a segment of the media has been sounding the alarm for a long time now. In fact, they’ve been screaming from the rooftops. They have been the true Watchmen. It’s the lame-stream media that is suspiciously AWOL.
Conversely, I will name those organizations which have been attentive to critical issues. Fox News is #1 for a reason, Tea Party groups all across the country are educating & informative, conservative online & print media such as Breitbart News, Red State, Human Events and Christian news networks have all made Herculean attempts to tell the public what is really happening in our government.
And what do they get for their efforts? Veiled threats and investigations.
