The media killed its own credibility when it went from inserting bias into legitimate coverage to turning its bias into the coverage.
I would say that The Guardian is the UK newspaper most hostile to the Jewish State, but there’s always The Independent. I would say that The Independent is the UK newspaper most hostile to the Jewish Stare, but there’s always that Al Qaeda magazine that the faithful pass around the mosque while waiting for the latest Jihadi sermon about the battle to liberate Afghanistan, Syria and Spain.
When a shooter opens fire in a mall, no media outlet reports that his killing spree was not a big deal because most of the rounds never hit anyone. The focus is on the hits that happen. Not the hits that doesn’t. The amount of total shots fired is completely irrelevant, except from a statistical point of view.
Media organizations complain about Israeli air strikes, but they make no effort to put distance between themselves and Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist operations during a war. If reporters voluntarily choose to act as human shields for Hamas and Islamic Jihad, what exactly does that say about their agenda?
I have seen a variety of articles and editorials taking the conservative media, primarily FOX News, to task for its overenthusiastic reporting on a landslide that never materialized. And that’s fair enough. But when you have an entity called “Conservative Media” or “Liberal Media” then the bias is baked in. It would be nice if we had a genuinely independent media, but no such thing exists.
Slain SEAL’s Father to Obama: “If This Attack on American Citizens Happened in LA, Would You Have Waited Seven Hours Before You Sent the First Airplane?”
“My question of the president would be this: Your Honor, I respect your office as president. But if this attack on American citizens, on American soil, happened 2,000 miles away from Washington, D.C. — say in Los Angeles or in Seattle — would you have waited seven hours before you sent the first airplane? Would you have waited seven hours until the attack was over? Would you have waited a couple of days until you had all of the videos and all the information before you responded in a responsible military way?”
“Mr. Obama’s temperament is unlike anything we’ve seen on the national stage in many years. He is deliberate but not indecisive; eloquent but a master of substance and detail; a man of supple intelligence, with a nuanced grasp of complex issues and evident skill at conciliation and consensus-building.”
