CBSNews Bigs Fret That Sharyl Attkisson is Coming "Dangerously Close to Advocacy"

Allah has something of a Grand Unified Theory on this.

Why is it so important that the Kochs do not buy the LA Times?

Why is it so important for the liberals to push out the only reporter who covered Benghazi?

"Ghettoization." If the "neutral media" -- actually liberal as hell -- can present a unified party line on stories, always supporting one another and never showing a crack in the wall, they can sneer at stories they don't like by saying "Only Fox claims that."

This becomes unhelpful to the liberals for the same reason it's helpful to conservatives. Conservatives always say "Wow, now it's on CBS!" We call that vindication -- that it's gotten out of the ghetto to the liberal media. That even the liberal media was forced to cover that.

But for those in the liberal media who consider the airwaves Their Air -- a valuable property they own and can exploit as any property-owner can, for their own benefit, to their own taste -- this is a problem for exactly the same reasons. Just as we claim victory when we say "Now it's on CBS!," so too do liberals feel failure when a true story that hurts liberals escapes from the conservative news/talk radio ghetto and shows up on Their Air.

And so, while they can't push Sharyl Attkisson out of the profession, they can give up a major reporter to Fox, which reduces the damage she can do.

After all, if she reports over there, "It's just a Fox story." The liberal media remains pristine and unified in its Ideological Wall of Silence.

"Treason never profits," a brave man named Kevin Costner said, "because if it profit, then none dare call it treason."*

Similarly, the media can never be embarrassed by its liberal bias and deliberate suppression of the news for political purposes if no one in the media ever breaches the wall of silence and clues the public in to what it's hiding. Even though CBS is currently pointing at Sharyl Atkkisson as The Only Network Reporter Who Reported on Benghazi, they're resentful about it, because her work stands as a rebuke to their own, and as a rebuke to their politicization of the news for the benefit of a political party.

But what if she was disappeared? What if her respectability and credibility were stripped from her?

Ah, then that would be glorious. Because there would be no troublesome reporter at CBS embarrassing the rest. She would just be a Fox Personality, and hence, neutralized.


* I know it's not Kevin Costner's quote. But I'm too lazy to look it up so I'll cite his mention of it in JFK.

Addendum: I think Sharyl Attkisson might be embarrassing them in this way: when they bury one of her stories, she publicizes itself on Twitter, and thus makes her editors look like... well, like liberal hacks suppressing a story because their job is to suppress information and con the public into voting the way the editors prefer.

I think that's what they might think of as "advocacy:" Promoting her own stories and, by doing so, thwarting their own determination to bury them.

And they might consider that "advocacy." After all, They have decided her stories are unimportant. But then she "advocates" for their importance.

And we can't have that. We can't have differences of opinion in a media which allegedly champions a free and open debate.

Final Word: Here's how the non-ideological, objective LATimes covered today's explosive revelations:

It was a probation violoation so he had a right to a hearing but not to a jury trial. If I remember correctly, the actual count was that he was not allowed access to the internet but had been using the internet anyway. There was no count of he caused the death of four Ameicans by making a politically incorrect move.

They have done just that, and along with the reaction to the Koch brothers attempt to buy the LA Times this shows not only the people but aspiring journalists the facts of the matter.

We think the liberal dominance will never end but this was exactly the feeling in Eastern Europe before the collapse of the Berlin Wall. Even we in the West thought that Soviet communism will never fall but it did.

There were a few things shocked me today. One was hearing Hicks say that never in his 22 year in the diplomatic corp had he ever seen an ambassador prohibited from giving a confidential briefing to a head of a congressional delegation. In fact, it was protocol to do so.

Yet he was prohibited from speaking privately with Chavetz when he went to Benghazi without his "handler". When did this start happening? When did our political leaders start sending out political handlers to say what information could or could not be given to Congress and the American people?

128 Yeah, but ultimately the liberal media doesn't vote on legislation, doesn't nominateor confirmfederal judges, doesn't appoint federal officials and doesn't nominate or appoint federal agency heads. Elected politicians do all that. And the liberal media can't dispatch troops or sign treaties or issue executive orders. As of Jan. 2005 Republicans despite the liberal media held the presidency plus majority power over Congress, along with a large majority of state governorships. But then the malcontent and spoiled bratdemographics of the rightflipped out over immigration (hint: dark-skinned Catholics) and the rest as they say is sayonara.

Hit reply before i posted this-

Obama administration officials are finally letting the attorney for a Benghazi whistle-blower get a security clearance — but the clearance is at such a low level that it will probably slow the congressional probe of how the administration handled last year’s terrorist attack on the embassy in Benghazi, Libya.

Victoria Toensing represents an unnamed government official who can help explain the reaction of top government officials to the jihadi attack on the U.S diplomatic site in Benghazi and killed four Americans last Sept. 11.

The official may also be able to explain if officials rewrote intelligence reports and took other actions to minimize media coverage of the administration’s errors and the perceived role of Al Qaeda jihadis.

BUT--as long as there is breath, I will do what I can to preserve my country in whatever manner I am able.The oath I (and a lot of you here, I bet) took to defend my Republic and it's Constitution doesn't expire.It should be noted that fulfilling that oath does not always involve weapons. THAT is last resort. I yet have hope the problems can be righted peacefully, God willing.Because we are Americans, I have faith we will persevere in the matter.

As usual, it turns out the 80s TV series "Yes, (Prime) Minister" serially mocked Britain's reflexive anti-semitism, primarily as being over oil contracts, with British politicians or civil servants dressing up in Arab costume or ignoring the PM's instruction to vote in favor of Israel at the UN, with the Israeli ambassador taking it in stride and telling the PM they're used to it.

That particular episode ended with the PM assigning the anti-Israel diplomat to Israel, and the guy reacted like he'd been sentenced to death.

And the weather was bad. The critical beer market of Chicago had its wettest April on record. Across the country, temperatures were down by almost 20 degrees in many areas during the first quarter, A-B InBev CEO Carlos Brito said today on an earnings call. He also blamed increased payroll taxes, delays in tax refunds and higher gasoline prices, "all which puts significant pressure on consumer disposable income." Relief has already arrived at the pump, where the national average prices for gas have been declining since peaking in late February, according to AAA.

So I just enjoy the tweets of people like Ace of Iowahawk or "The Other McCain"

Anybody else get a boost of hope after reading irongrampa's posts.



(yeah, brown nosin' and all that, but I sometimes feel guilty about
being 'woe is the country!' and then reading his resolve-amongst many
others.)

Posted by: RWC at May 08, 2013 07:05 PM (Wl/Ht)

I always get a boost out of all of Irongrampa's posts. He is most genuine and sincere in everything he posts. I've got the added bonus of living close enough to him, that he knows he will not stand alone! Yes, It's N.Y. but it is upper red N.Y. We won't have to worry to much about the city folk. Just other uninformed folks around us. They shouldn't be a problem to handle at all.
I also adore Backhoe and have all admiration for him, as well.

304 All the more reason to keep re-tweeting every story Attkisson writes, even if CBS buries it on their web site. I try to catch her on TV, but it seems she is rarely allowed to report on air these days.

309 "When did our political leaders start sending out political handlers to say what information could or could not be given to Congress and the American people."

Yep, apparently we now have Political Officers to report back suspicions of disloyalty to the Party. Our own Junior Stasi, run by angry children who can barely find their way to work in the morning. This combination is how democracies are destroyed. I swear, by the time this administration is done, a competent tyrant like Vladimir Putin will start to seem positively Lincolnesque by comparison.

Perhaps eastern and central N.Y. But yeah, there are a helluva lot of conservatives there as well. We just watch, observe, keep an eye on things and prepare for what might be coming. Usually we just don't advertise it. Unfortunately we don't have the voting power that the large cities do.

331 David Rhodes,CBS Pres (ex Fox)has a younger brother, Ben Rhodes, the
author of the changing Benghazi talking points which so obviously lied
about Benghazi.
Telling the truth about Benghazi on CBS would expose David Rhodes' brother as an Obama stooge and liar.

334 Fox isn't always conservative. Ghettoization means that anything Fox chooses to push is not legitimate at all. So some of the time there will be a legitimate story silenced by a complete media wall.
