Journalism: Here is Merriam-Webster’s definition: “writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation” or in my words “No Bullsh*t added” or in my Mothers words “No sauce added to the story”
I listen and read the media reports and I can’t stand it. My time is spent trying to figure out who is telling us the facts. This goes to my problem with journalism. We have totally lost it. You cannot believe anyone anymore. If you look at my resources page you’ll find Fox News, One America News Network, Breitbart, Mark Levin, Drudge Report to name just a few sites I can depend upon to tell me the truth. It all started with Fox News. There’s nothing like seeing a tape of Obama telling us how Bush was irresponsible and unpatriotic by raising the debt $4 trillion in 8 years. To use Obama’s famous phrase; “He inherited” a debt of $10.6 trillion, now in May, 2015 Obama has it at $18 trillion currently, guestimated to surpass $20+trillion by the time he’s gone, how unpatriotic Mr. Obama.
I read the NY Times for years and then I started to feel that they were telling me how to feel as opposed to presenting the facts and let me decide how I feel. They print a headline like Republicans do nothing to help the recovery. And throughout the article they’ll try and sound like they are giving a fair analysis. But it’s all a psychological twisted tail designed to brainwash people. They know that the average person tries to keep up, so what they do is skim through and read the headlines, so they can brag that they keep themselves up to date. So when a conversation comes up they can sound smart by reciting the headline. It’s a sad fact of the limited time that we all face for really important things that are happening in our world.
For blogging out loud)) lets demand that all journalists tell us 100% of the facts and not slip in their opinion.
The latest tale told is by Brian Williams NBC’s star (100 mil per year,) telling us hard news! Well maybe not. This should be his retirement. Or maybe they’ll get a doctors note that he has Alzheimers from Dr. Nancy Snyderman NBC’s medical expert, who decided that during an Ebola quarantine she was under, decided to go for soup. So here is proof of the bull that NBC puts out along with all the cover ups for Obama they are famous for.
Also NBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin Foreign News Correspondent (formerly from Al Jazeera and CNN) who said that Chris Kyle the American Sniper was going on killing spree’s and was a racist. Specifically: “Some of what people have described as his racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims when he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment.” and “When he was involved in his — on assignments in terms of what he was doing. A lot of the description that has come out from his book and some of the terminology that he has used, people have described as racist. “
To be fair Ayman slipped in “Some of what people have described…” and “people have described as racist”, maybe he had a guilty conscience, maybe he was trying to protect his job, or maybe he has an ulterior motive like influencing what people think, knowing that they grab and remember the juicy, bad part of the story, working off of the ugly traits of us humans.
65 former military members including 22 admirals and generals organized by Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell demanded an apology for his statements about someone who served his country over and over, saving our troops from further harm.
We have watched, listened and read most of the media’s version of what the news is, YES their version? We should be able to watch One news station, read One paper or One website and come up with EXACTLY the same facts and maybe your reason for watching them as opposed to the other, is you prefer their voice, the way they look, or the channel you happened to be on. Thats how accurate their reporting should be, how unbiased.
To be fair, I have seen some of the channels improving, however I don’t think it’s their conscience. There’s nothing like bad ratings to improve their coverage.))
