Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press—1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States (source)
Democracy without honest information creates the illusion of popular consent at the same time that it enhances the power of the state and the privileged interests that the state protects.The Press the 4th Estate of American government, as provided by the United States Constitution is to be a free, an unbiased and an independent reporter on government.
And nothing characterizes corporate media today more than its disdain toward the fragile nature of modern life and its indifference toward the complex social debate required of a free and self-governing people.—Bill Moyers
The Founders thought this necessary in order to prevent government from gaining usurious power over the people by way of deception, propaganda or information blackout.
Therefore Americans should never see headlines like this one:
ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE (see source)And just as the three branches of government were meant to be checks and balances upon one another, the press is supposed to be a check and balance on the government.
Yet the American press has forgotten its purpose. The Pro Obama press unashamedly boasts that its job is to make Barack Hussein Obama succeed ergo MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (see 1min video)
Unbelievable! And it’s the same all over. Every U.S. media outlet is Pro Obama all the time. Evan Thomas if Newsweek thinks that Obama is God! (see 41sec video)
NBC’s Brian Williams unbelievably bowed the King Abdullah bow to Obama. This is an unacceptable gesture for President or journalist. (see 15sec. video)
One news network out of all of the other news networks in America fails to sell out its soul and constitutional purpose to pay homage to our Lord God Obama (per Newsweek’s Evan Thomas) they do this by attempting to report unbiasly on the Obama administration. For doing their job they get called out (unnamed) by Obama as if they are doing something wrong. (see 1:58min video)
No, unnamed News network whoever you are, you are not wrong you are doing exactly what the founding fathers envisioned for the press. All the other genuflecting, bowing, brown nosing so called media broadcasting from the White House to promote the government’s agenda are in the wrong.
The American media is not supposed to be sycophants of the government they are supposed to be unbiased and objective observers of truth. However ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, CSPAN and even FOX news have all been corrupted by a need to be political correct rather than Constitutionally correct.
Pravda in Russian means truth, an Oxymoron because the Russian newspaper was the opposite of truth it was a government propaganda rag. Who would have dreamed that the American media in its entirety would today be reporting “Pravda” to the American people concerning the Obama administration.
In the words of Bill Moyers; “Democracy without honest information creates the illusion of popular consent at the same time that it enhances the power of the state and the privileged interests that the state protects.”
That is exactly why there must always be separation of News media and State, that is exactly why ABC news should not be biasly supporting the President's Health care plan and that is why ABC news should not be broadcasting from the White House!
