Questioning Media – Dec 2015

DSC00088

The Media have gone from objective reportage on the world to the presenters of a message, a narrative of reality, not reality itself.

They tend to focus on the inconsequential, avoid the essential and strive to provoke rather than enlighten.  Question their message. Everyone has a message. 

Exhibit A, B, C & D:

Of course, as many readers now know, Matthews fired back by ignoring Joseph’s question and repeatedly telling him to “go to hell” and “leave me alone.”

– What a grinch, must see video, too funny for words.

– Would Hugh Hewitt have asked that question of Bobby Kennedy or Jimmy Carter?

Why doesn’t Hillary Clinton or Obama get these kinds of questions? This is ridiculous.

Talk about ruthless, what a ruthless thing to do. Carson handled it well. Hugh Hewitt wasn’t much when he was in California, I can see he hasn’t improved.
