The Main Stream Media: Bought and Paid For!


By Rich Kozlovich

Does "bought and paid for" sound a bit too condemnatory?  They may not have received money, but they did receive access.  That is their payment.  Since this was their compensation for their corruption....... that constitutes being bought and paid for.  

Yesterday I posted this article; We Need to Get This: The Media Lies....Constantly!  I stated that "The media has had its way for so many years that they have begun to believe their own lies and distortions. Yet their proven “offenses include lying and fabricating, doctoring photos, plagiarism, conflicts of interest, falling for hoaxes, and overt bias.”  It is absolutely true!

Please follow the link in the below article to get the full impact of what is actually going on.  It should have been obvious to the most casual observer, but apparently even being hit with a brick won't dent some heads. 

Proof! Establishment media controlled
By  Joseph Farah

There was a rather low-key confession made in the New York Times last week that deserves to be blared throughout this country so that every American understands what they are reading in the establishment’s ultra-controlled, government-managed “press” – and I use that last word loosely indeed. The admission came in the form of a story by Jeremy Peters on the politics page of the Times July 16. I’ve been waiting for others to point it out, discuss it, debate it, express shock and exasperation over it. But I’ve waited for naught. “Many journalists spoke about the editing only if granted anonymity, an irony that did not escape them.”………All I can say about these people I once considered “colleagues” is that I am so ashamed of them. I am mortified. They are humiliating themselves and a vital institution for any free society.

It seems the biggest threat to the American tradition of a free and independent press is not government coercion. It’s the willing submission of the press to being handled and managed by government and politicians.
