I just read a story that in effect has the administration saying Fox News is an arm of the Republican party. It seems to me that in fact, they feel the network if nothing else is an enemy to not only the President, but also to the country as a whole. After all, they dare to question actions by this administration. how dare they!
I find it quite funny and yet sad. We do in fact, on the whole have a co-opted media in this country! First rule to cover up an assassination is to kill the assassin. First rule in politics is to lie about, besmirch or discredit the messenger when challenged!
So why is the administration so Anti-Fox? Doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this one out. Fox, more then any other outlet at least tries to have fact on their side. They have been known to go after anyone in any party if they feel they are wrong (I'm not going to argue that on the surface they are conservative in nature). But usually when any politician strikes out at a media outlet it is because the truth has bitten him or her in the ass and they don't like it!
There is a common thread to this story as with most things that are involved with a leftist and/or dictatorship way of doing things! Control of the media! Overwhelm the people’s senses with Lies, Lies and more Lies
CONTROL OF THE MEDIA! CONTROL OF THE MESSAGE! The lemmings will follow as long as you can keep the LIE in front of them, always hiding the truth! BTW: When Ipost, I do it after digging into every facet of information I can digest. I'm just a hard working guy, high school grad who after 42 years has worked my way to the top of my profession. I read and listen to everything I can (that's a novel concept I'm sure for all of the lock stepping libs out there). I pretty much hold the majority of politicians, right or left in disdain as anyone who has seen my post would know. Having said all that, the fact is still quite clear that the vast majority of the MSM are NOT doing their jobs as they should! Most spout the big lie. The editors and reporters don't seem to be able to think for themselves any more.
Who made the following quotes? "How fortunate for governments that people they administer don't think. The broad masses of a population are more amendable to the appeal of Rhetoric than any other force. make the lie Big. Make it Simple, and eventually they will believe it." The answer: ADOLF HITLER . We better not get out of the way or it will be too late" Lies, Lies and more Lies. This president truly believes we are stupid enough to swallow it all, just like Hitler did in the 30's. CONTROL OF THE MEDIA. CONTROL OF THE MESSAGE.
Rant and rave about Fox News, or the fact that the left considers good Americans of any political stripe racists or fear mongers, but there is one simple fact that has been proven here! The truth will win over the BIG LIE if presented to the people and as long as the people are paying attention as they should be with their responsibilities as voters! The fact that the administration is lashing out at a media outlet that dares to question idiotic bad policy is just another reminder of the Big Lie! Accuse the messenger! It is up to the people and a non co-opted media to keep this administration from it's leftward march. You say we spread fear. You're damned right we do! You should fear the truth as it will trump the lies and deceit emanating from DC! And we have no intention of stopping here until our country is rescued from this try at a socialist takeover!
