How We Are Being Had By the Mainstream Media
Everyone in the
Why the censorship? PBS felt that he documentary, which exposed the reason why we do not hear an out cry from the “Moderate” Muslims against the radical Islamists, was “BIASED” against the radical members of Islam. Once again, political correctness is front and center, and we all know that the
This pc mentality has even led our government to do great harm to the security of our country by enabling Islamist organizations in the
When so many of us ask, “Where are the moderated voices of Islam, why aren’t they speaking out?” The answer becomes crystal clear; they are being stifled by misguided political correctness and by the strong Islamist influence within the
This political correctness and bias toward the extreme left, not only affects what, if anything, we hear from moderate Muslims, but it gives a skewed picture of world events to the American public and of us to the world at large. When we listen to the
Here is an example of media bias from a story printed in the Washington Post, which shows what I mean. The article was titled: House Heats Up Over Bill to Give Illegal Immigrants In-State Tuition. This article shows how a use of descriptive words can change the meaning of a sentence and skew the whole article to shed a good light on the side the writer favors and a bad light on the side the writer is against. For example, the reporter wrote “
This biased one-sided reporting even affects who we vote for in our elections, both on the local and national level. During the primaries, the media will promote one candidate from each party over the others who are running, by giving their preferred candidates more mention in the newspapers and more face time and air time on television. You can pretty well tell who the two candidates will be in the national Presidential election, just by the amount of press time they are given during the primaries.
The same thing happens once the primaries are over and the two candidates have been chosen. The candidate who gets the most press time and the most positive write ups (even if not deserved) will be the one to win the election.
Media bias also is used to promote one actor/entertainer over another. How many times have you heard talking heads and pundits make the statement “Every body is talking about. . .” and then they go on to mention some actor, singer, or obscure individual that the powers that be wish to make a star. Yet, you stop to use your head and think about it, hardly anyone is talking about that particular individual, but because the media has proclaimed that every body is talking about him/her or them, then we better hurry up and get on the band wagon or else we won’t be cool, with it, or hip.
When they report on the invasion of “illegal” immigrants flooding into this country, they always portray them as being wonderful, hardworking, “law-abiding” individuals who are here just doing the jobs that Americans “won’t do”. But if anyone tries to tell the other side, how the illegals are placing a financial burden on our schools, hospitals and medical facilities, how they are damaging the ecosystem when they dump their garbage in the dessert, how they are lowering the standard of living by depressing wages and how the jobs they are taking which the employers claim the Americans won’t do, is because the employers do not want to pay a decent wage for, they we are called anti-immigration bigots.
Meanwhile, we have hundreds of rapists, child-molesters, drug smugglers, violent gang members and other criminals sneaking into our country and running rampant. We have illegals that are driving with no license or insurance, and driving drunk. They then end up killing innocent American citizens and nothing is done. If they are deported, they sneak back in, often in a matter of weeks. But does the
My advice to you is to wake up and look at how you are being manipulated by the Main Stream Media and start to demand unbiased reporting and if the media is not capable of unbiased reporting then lets put them out of business.
