So you need proof the mainstream media twists the news?

Remember the pics we posted the other day about the gathering in Arizona that showed some protesters sporting guns?

Fox News Channel is the fastest growing news outlet in the world because of one reason, it doesn't fabricate the truth. CNN which once used to occupy the number 1 spot has fallen to a dismal third place just behind MSNBC. Fox still outranks MSNBC and CNN combined x two!

Why?

Because most mainstream media in the US (and it's the same everywhere else in the West) have stopped reporting and now MAKE UP the "news". Most swing to the Left and are heavily biased towards liberal issues.

But that's not the only reason. All news outlets except Fox treat the viewers as if they are idiots and admittedly those that still believe the crap that comes from those channels are but with the internet, with simple Googling for FACTS (oh them facts again, they can be so stubborn) everything can be VERIFIED. Important word that: verified. People are able to obtain and ascertain facts and indeed get more information. You will recall how Google crashed when Michael Jackson died. The television news wasn't enough, people immediately turned to the web to check and find out more.

So back to my point. The protestors in Arizona included a black man carrying a holstered handgun and a semi-automatic (you saw the pics right?) yet observe in this video from MSNBC how they edited out the black man's face, continued to show the rest of the protesters who were all supposedly just white, of course. What angle did MSNBC run with? That this footage "proved" that the anti-Obamacare protests had a racial element to it. That whites hated a "black man in the white House" etc etc. Hello?! The man used in the footage was a BLACK man!

LOOK at the camera aimed at the black man's face!

But that's really how these leftwing media nuts do their business and then wonder why Fox continues to stream ahead.

It's deception, most lucid intelligent people know it and shows what a disgrace old media has become, why old media is quickly fading out to be matched if not replaced by citizen media, blogs, social networks etc.

The mainstream media simply cannot be trusted to report FACTS.

If Obama had any scruples he would have spoken out against CNN's biased reporting.

Hi All. Previously Anon, but now signed up with a Google Account.

I remember a couple of years ago e NEWS reported and showed video footage of Zuma supporters 'booing' the then Deputy President; Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka at a rally. SABC News did not show anything in this regard. Critics at the time wanted to know why? The SABC's response was that the Freelance Cameraman that had been contracted by the SABC to cover the rally had arrived late and did not get any of the footage.

The following evening on e NEWS they showed video footage of the e NEWS Cameraman filming the SABC's Freelance Cameraman!

There is no consistency between the different news bulletins on SABC. The English and Afrikaans and all the other 'Bleck Lengwigas' flight completely different bulletins on the same day and within hours of each other.

e NEWS used to bandy about how they reported without 'Fear or Favour' which we do not hear anymore. I guess the S-ANC-BC rapped them on the knuckles for that 'racist motto.'

Huh? Previous comment for Norman was by me, FE. Ironic that the comment was posted as an 'anonymous' comment even though I'm logged in. Hehe.

Fox News is my favourite channel. For those of you that can't get it, never fear VI is here. Watch it on your computer for free at Free Tube. Beware though, live TV consumes a lot of bandwidth.

Vanilla Ice said...

The best show on Fox News is Bill O'Reilly or Hannity. SA times would be 7:00 am and 8:00 am.

Doberman said...

Agreed VI. I never miss O'Reilly and Hannity. I generally also tune in to Fox & Friends in the mornings (which is evening for me) because it beats watching re-runs most times or when they aren't any footy games on. Footy being Aus for all things played with a football.

'Bout time Norman ;)

FUCK the MSM. Stop buying newspapers. Don't even take a free one when you board an aircraft because that still registers as a hit with the publisher. Blacklist CNN and NBC on your router / set top box etc. This is the only way to punish them for their lies.

FishEagle said...

"...VI is here." Yeah!

@VI: I prefer Glenn Beck over Hannity, but I do like Bill O'Riely.
