  • ESPN Robert Lee Back to Orwell’s “1984”?

    Today, Stonewall Jackson. Tomorrow, Michael, Reggie and Jackson Hole

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    ESPN Robert Lee Back to George Orwell’s “1984” ?

    Detailed summary of George Orwell Novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by Colette COLMERAUER : PART 1 Chapter 1 ……

    The story of Winston Smith begins on a bright cold day.

    He works for the Ministry of Truth, which deals with news, education, entertainment and art.

    Added for clarity “1984” …. Winston Smith is a member of the Outer Party. He works in the Records Department in the Ministry of Truth, rewriting and distorting history. To escape Big Brother’s tyranny, at least inside his own mind, Winston begins a diary — an act punishable by death.

    There are three other Ministries:

    The Ministry of Plenty dealing with Economic Affairs

    The Ministry of Love dealing with law and torture

    And, the Ministry of Peace which deals with war and defence

    Everywhere in London there are giant posters of a dark eyed man with a moustache and a motto “Big Brother is looking at you”. Winston comes back home from work to his one room apartment.

    In this room a big telescreen transmits and receives non-stop information, so that you can be watched or listened to at anytime.

    But there is an alcove besides where he believes he cannot be seen. So he sits there and begins writing a journal, on an old book bought in an antiques shop. He writes the date: 4 April 1984.

    18 hours ago – Today, Stonewall Jackson. Tomorrow, Michael, Reggie and Jackson Hole. The inside track on Washington politics. Be the first to know about …

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    Similar caution just led the University of Houston to change the name of its Calhoun Lofts dorm because it shares a name with the 19th-century vice president and white supremacist John C. Calhoun, even though, a university spokeswoman told the Houston Chronicle, “the residence hall was not named in recognition of John C. Calhoun” but a nearby street.

    In Atlanta, likewise, protesters last week attempted to tear down that city’s Peace Monument, apparently mistaking it for a Confederate shrine. The sculpture was erected to honor those who worked for reunification during Reconstruction.

    The movement to remove Confederate monuments can be a healthy one, if done legally, according to the wishes of local citizens and in such a way that preserves this history without glorifying it. But from across this great land come reminders that nothing in America succeeds like excess.

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a 90-day review of any statues on city property that could be “symbols of hate.” New Yorkers are now taking aim at the Christopher Columbus statue in Columbus Circle and the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant.

    Some object to the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside the Museum of Natural History, and others suggest the name “New York” itself may have to go because the Duke of York was a slave trader. New York chef Tom Colicchio dropped the name of his new restaurant because it was named after a building that was named after 19th-century publishers who had racist views.

    There’s a movement in Massachusetts to rename Boston’s Faneuil Hall, cradle of the Revolution, because the 1742 structure was built by a slave trader and owner, Peter Faneuil. Residents of Philadelphia and Seattle, not to be left out, want to remove statues of, respectively, Frank Rizzo and Vladimir Lenin.

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    If we are to purge ourselves of Robert E. Lee (and ESPN’s Robert Lee) we must avoid confusion by renaming or replacing all things with names similar to the Confederate general’s: Bruce Lee, Tommy Lee, Spike Lee, Harper Lee, Bobby Lee, Lee jeans, Lee Majors and Lee Iacocca.

    It won’t do simply to rename schools named for the Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart. We’re going to have to rename Stuart Little, Stuart the Minion from “Despicable Me,” Jon Stewart, Martha Stewart and Jeb Bush. All statues of Jubal Early must come down. So must all things that share names with this Confederate general: early-bird specials, early morning, early retirement, early voting and early NBA-draft entry.

    If Confederate hero Nathan Bedford Forrest must go, so must the Redwood forest. Also the Gulf Stream waters. Fort A.P. Hill, an army base named for a Confederate general, must be renamed. So must Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill, Nob Hill, Bunker Hill, the Sugarhill Gang, Blueberry Hill, and Bill and Hill.

    Let us dispense with Jefferson Davis, by all means — but take with him Miles Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Davis Love, the Davis Cup, the University of California at Davis, the Jefferson Hotel, Thomas Jefferson, George Jefferson, Louise “Weezy” Jefferson, Jefferson Pierce (Black Lightning) and especially Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who also shares a name with Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard. Now that New Orleans has taken down its Beauregard statue, we’re also going to have to relocate Bo Jackson, Bo Derek and Bo Diddley.

    Memorials to Confederate Gen. Leonidas Polk cannot be moved without also erasing all trace of President James Polk, polka dances, polka dots, Hawaiian poke and Pokémon. Picket lines must be outlawed and picket fences flattened to avoid honoring Gen. George Pickett, and I will stonewall any attempt to disappear Gen. Thomas Jackson without also renaming Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Reggie Jackson, Percy Jackson, Action Jackson and Jackson Hole.

    I regret to say we must also rename my Washington Post colleague Philip Rucker, who shares a name with (though is not related to) Confederate Gen. Edmund Rucker.

    That’s asking a lot of Phil, but we all must do our share. I will be demanding a new name for my public high school, Calhoun High School. It’s not named for John C. but for Sanford H., a 20th-century New York school administrator who, to the best of my knowledge, did not own slaves. But you can’t be too careful.

  • I Got A Phone Call From WA DC

    Yep, May 19, 2017, Rep Kilmer’s Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    I received the call on my time,  12:50 PM West Coast time.

    We had about a 20 minute conversation.

    The rest of the story  is the timing  and content of the ridiculously absurd  email Rep Kilmer Friday, sent to me May 19, 2017 10:52 AM.

    ————————————————————

    THIS IS THE STORY

    I have been emailing  a bunch of the postings on this website to Rep Kilmer on his “contact me”.  Checking the box I want a response.

    It took some goading, doing something continuously, provoking and  annoying, to stimulate action, reaction but I finally got  a  response from Kilmer’s office in WA DC.

    Martha wants to know

    What  I want from WA STATE Representative Derek Kilmer?

    Really? What do I want? This is my 920th posting on behindmyback.org. established  Jan 29, 2013

    Simply put, I want what Abraham Lincoln   wanted on Nov 19, 1863 “Gettysburg Address” that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    ———————————————————-

    What do I want?

    As a concerned American Grandmother, with three children, (10) grandchildren and (9) great grand children…

    I want exactly the same as We the hard working  American citizens want, the WA DC. establishment  of elected Representatives, both Republican’s  and Democrat’s to work for the American people not the party.

    What “we the American people want” is for all elected MEMBERS OF CONGRESS et al, like resistance, bad mouthing, obstructing, Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Cantwell, Murray, and Kilmer to follow the lead of President Trump and put America and the American people first.

    ——————————————————————————-

    To the WA DC Politico establishment congress et al,  I would ask…

    “When honor and the law no longer stood  on the same side of the line, what did you stand for?

    You, members of congress et al, had a choice

    “You always have a choice. don’t ever imagine you don’t. Whatever you do, it’s a decision and you have to accept responsibility for it. That’s when honor becomes more than empty words.”

    Next time you’re faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, vote for the right thing. it will hurt all American’s less in the long run.”

    —————————————————–

    You, the establishment politicians,  lost the election on Nov 8, 2016.

    YOU WERE OVERWHELMINGLY  REJECTED BY AMERICAN VOTERS

    GET OVER IT.

    TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE WAS NOT A  UNITED NATIONS GLOBALIZATION POLITICIAN AND HE LOVES AMERICA

    “WHEN HONOR AND THE LAW NO LONGER STOOD  ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE LINE, WHAT DID TRUMP STAND FOR?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE HAD A PLAN FOR AMERICA. HE  SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FIRST 100 DAY PLAN FOR AMERICA.

    AMERICAN VOTERS HAD A CHOICE

    IT WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    WITHOUT AMERICA THERE WOULD BE NO FREE WORLD

    WITHOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP THERE WOULD BE NO AMERICA

    AMERICA HAS DULY ELECTED  INTELLIGENT, HONORABLE, HONEST,  STRONG, LAW ENFORCING, HARD WORKING CONSTITUTIONALLY MOTIVATED,  TRULY PATRIOTIC, GLOBALLY POWERFUL  AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

    WHAT DO I WANT FROM WA DC?

    READ THE PLANS FOR AMERICA THAT MADE DONALD J. TRUMP PRESIDENT.

    Members of congress et al, The Next time you are  faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, protecting America’s borders, creating prosperity, like putting justice on the right side of the law, vote for the right thing for the American People.

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ———————————————————————————

    Kilmer’s Martha and I talked for about 20 minutes, partly about lies and atrocities committed in America.

    The Benghazi lies, that I knew about two weeks after it happened and told Kilmer about in 2012.  The media cover up of the rape of a five year old developmentally disabled girl in Twin Falls Idaho, (got no response from Kilmer, Cantwell or Murray)  Female genital mutilation,  by a doctor Detroit U.S.A.  practicing medicine in Henry Ford Hospital.

    Martha said she would check out my website.

    And,  when Martha asked me What I wanted  Rep Kilmer to do about Obamacare, I said, I want Rep Kilmer to stand up in the U.S. House of Representative, cross the isle, and support a bipartisan fix in the best interest of the American people..

    I asked Martha to let me know when Rep Kilmer will be on C-SPAN doing it.

    The bottom line

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ————————————————————————

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    Yep, May 19, 2017 Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    My time in Port Angeles WA,  12:50 PM

    Martha and I  had a 20 minute conversation 42 MINUTES  later WA DC time

    I received the  ridiculously absurd ..wildly illogical and wholly inappropriate robo response email from Rep Kilmer

    Dear Ms. Hewett,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about President Donald Trump and the policies his administration is pursuing. I share your concern, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    When I think about the next four years, I think about the future I want for my two little girls. I want my daughters – and all kids – to be able to get a top-notch education where their class sizes are small and their teachers are treated like professionals. As they grow older, I want my kids to be able to go to college without taking on mounds of debt. When they’re old enough, I want each of them to be able to get a good job that pays a good wage and has decent benefits – where they’re respected as working people. I want that for all Americans. I want my daughters to grow up in a world where discrimination is a thing of the past – where regardless of your race, religion, gender, orientation, ethnicity, ability or disability, you are a valued member of our community and our country. I want that future for them. I want them to grow up in a world where we protect the planet because we know our kids are only as safe as the water they drink, the air they breathe, and the earth we pass on to them.

    Frankly, those are the issues, among many others, that will be at stake in the years ahead.

    Unfortunately, the new Administration appears to have the wrong priorities. President Trump has already pursued policies that target immigrants, divide refugees by religion, and deny healthcare to millions of Americans. He has sought to undermine ongoing investigations into Russia’s engagement with our election and has called into question the rule of law. He has levied attacks on the judiciary and created enormous concerns about his own conflicts of interest. He has questioned the vital need to protect our environment for future generations.

    Please know that I will continue to oppose these efforts. America is the sum of its diverse parts, and I will vehemently oppose any attempts to undermine protection of our values.

    I will also do all I can to ensure that Congress exercises its oversight authority and advocates for the rule of law. The Constitution calls for protection of civil rights and civil liberties. It calls for the protection of free speech, freedom of religion, and a free press. It created an independent judiciary, empowered to review the actions of the executive branch to ensure they are legal and Constitutional. I respect that, and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that our president respects those principles as well.

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “Public sentiment is everything.” If we are going to advance thoughtful, positive policies and if we are going to stop wrong-headed, divisive ones, we need citizens like you to be engaged. Thank you for that.

    Hearing the views of folks in our region is important to my work. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.
    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

     


  • Trump-Sanders Proof of DNC Rigged System

    “Leaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more. On-line from Wikileakes, really vicious. RIGGED,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
    Republican nominee Donald Trump, however, said the emails were proof of the Democrats’ “rigged” system, resurfacing an attack he’s leveled against the party before.

    ————————————————————————–

    Debbie Wassermann Shultz, who has lost all credibility after a serious set of emails was leaked to the public, will be forfeiting her speaking slot at the DNC. The DNC chair’s absence from the speech-givers section is unusual.

    “The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party’s convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee’s impartiality during the Democratic primary.

    … from internet entity Wikileaks, the DNC has been forced to alter its liberal speaker schedule. Debbie Wassermann Shultz, who has lost all credibility after a serious set of emails … The DNC chair’s absence from the speech-givers section is unusual. … DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz Won’t Speak at Convention Following …

    “The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party’s convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee’s impartiality during the Democratic primary.

    “Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort “to keep the peace” in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails
    “One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders’ faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.”
    This is merely the first bit of fallout from the Wikileaks disclosures of the DNC. Should Hillary somehow make it to the official nomination, expect drama at the highest degree.

    (CNN)Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not speak at or preside over the party’s convention this week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee’s impartiality during the Democratic primary.

    The DNC Rules Committee on Saturday named Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, as permanent chair of the convention, according to a DNC source. She will gavel each session to order and will gavel each session closed.
    “She’s been quarantined,” another top Democrat said of Wasserman Schultz, following a meeting Saturday night.
    Wasserman Schultz’s stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, but her removal from the convention stage comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails.
    One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders’ faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.
    This is seen as a concession to Sanders, who has been furious at Wasserman Schultz for what he believed was favoritism to Clinton.
    The Democrat familiar with the decision said it was done in hopes of preventing chaos on the convention floor among Sanders supporters.

    The decision was blessed by Clinton and Sanders officials, this Democrat said.

    Sanders on Sunday told CNN’s Jake Tapper the release of DNC emails that show its staffers working against him underscore the position he’s held for months: Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to go.
    “I don’t think she is qualified to be the chair of the DNC not only for these awful emails, which revealed the prejudice of the DNC, but also because we need a party that reaches out to working people and young people, and I don’t think her leadership style is doing that,” Sanders told Tapper on “State of the Union,” on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
    “I am not an atheist,” he said. “But aside from all of that, it is an outrage and sad that you would have people in important positions in the DNC trying to undermine my campaign. It goes without saying, the function of the DNC is to represent all of the candidates — to be fair and even-minded.”
    He added: “But again, we discussed this many, many months ago, on this show, so what is revealed now is not a shock to me.”

    Emails leaked from seven DNC officials

    The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee’s message with other powerful interests in Washington.
    The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails’ authenticity.
    One email features DNC staffers appearing to ponder ways to undercut Sanders, an insurgent Democrat who had a bitter relationship with party leadership. Sanders supporters charged that the DNC was biased toward Clinton, and Sanders late in the primary endorsed Wassserman Schultz’s primary opponent in her Florida congressional race.
    On May 5, a DNC employee asked colleagues to “get someone to ask his belief” in God and suggested that it could make a difference in Kentucky and West Virginia. Sanders’ name is not mentioned in the note.
    “This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall wrote.
    Marshall did not respond to a request for comment. But Baltimore mayor and DNC Secretary Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied any suggestion that Clinton’s camp was treated more favorably by the committee.
    “My expectation is beyond your opinion about a candidate, that you act evenly. All of the officers took a pledge of neutrality and I honored that, and I take that very seriously,” Rawlings-Blake told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. She added, “I know that the chair will hold those employees accountable if they’re found to have acted outside of that neutrality and even-handedness.”
    Republican nominee Donald Trump, however, said the emails were proof of the Democrats’ “rigged” system, resurfacing an attack he’s leveled against the party before.
    “Leaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more. On-line from Wikileakes, really vicious. RIGGED,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

    7 Things About The Mainstream Media That They Do Not Want You To …

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHO CONTROLS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA?  In America today, we are more “connected” than ever.  The average American watches 153 hours of television a month, and we also spend countless hours watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, reading books and surfing the Internet.

    IF SOMEONE COULD CONTROL THE PRODUCTION OF ALL OF THAT MEDIA, THAT WOULD MAKE THEM IMMENSELY POWERFUL.  THEY WOULD LITERALLY BE IN A POSITION TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO THINK.

      Well, what if I told you that there are just six enormous media conglomerates that combine to produce about 90 percent of all the media that Americans consume.

    WOULD THAT ALARM YOU?  It should alarm you.  The truth is that our attitudes, opinions and beliefs are greatly shaped by what we allow into our minds. 

    AFTER ALL, THEY DON’T CALL IT “PROGRAMMING” FOR NO REASON.  Even those of us that realize that we are connected to “the matrix” probably greatly underestimate the tremendous influence that the media has over us. 

    We live at a time when it is absolutely imperative to think for ourselves, but most Americans are being absolutely overwhelmed with information and seem more than content to let others do their thinking for them. 

    SADLY, THIS IS GREATLY CONTRIBUTING TO THE DOWNFALL OF OUR SOCIETY.

    And of course the mainstream media desperately does not want you to look at “the man behind the curtain”.  They just want you to stay plugged into the “programming” that they are feeding you without asking any questions.

    Fortunately, a growing minority of Americans are waking up and are starting to reject the mainstream media.  An increasing number of people are beginning to recognize that the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment and that it is promoting the agenda of the establishment.

    So why is the mainstream media so bad?  The following are 7 things about the mainstream media that they do not want you to know…

    #1 The Mainstream Media Has Very Deep Ties To The Establishment

    Did you know that the president of CBS and the president of ABC both have brothers that are top officials in the Obama administration?

    The big news networks have developed an almost incestuous relationship with the federal government in recent years.  But of course the same could be said of the relationship that the media has with the big corporations that own stock in their parent companies and that advertise on their networks.

    This is one of the reasons why we very rarely ever see any hard hitting stories on the big networks anymore.  THE FLOW OF INFORMATION THROUGH THE CORPORATE-DOMINATED MEDIA IS VERY TIGHTLY CONTROLLED, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF GATEKEEPERS THAT MAKE SURE THAT THE “WRONG STORIES” DON’T GET PUT OUT TO THE PUBLIC.  As a result, many of the “big stories” that have come out in recent years were originally broken by the alternative media.

    #2 The Mainstream Media Gets Things Wrong Very Frequently

    Even prominent members of the mainstream media admit that this is the case.  For example, during a recent speech at Quinnipiac University CBS anchor Scott Pelley confessed that journalists in the mainstream media “are getting big stories wrong, over and over again”

    “Let me take the first arrow: During our coverage of Newtown, I sat on my set and I reported that Nancy Lanza was a teacher at the school. And that her son had attacked her classroom. It’s a hell of a story, but it was dead wrong. Now, I was the managing editor, I made the decision to go ahead with that and I did, and that’s what I said, and I was absolutely wrong. So let me just take the first arrow here.”

    #3 The American Public Does Not Consider The Media To Be Very Trustworthy

    Trust in the mainstream media has definitely been slipping.  In fact, a Gallup poll taken last year found that distrust of the media had reached an all-time high.  According to that poll, 60 percent of Americans “have little or no trust” that the media is reporting the news accurately.

    A separate Rasmussen Reports survey found that only 6 percent of all Americans consider the news media to be “very trustworthy”.

    Hopefully this trend will accelerate and a lot more people will stop trusting the media blindly.

    #4 The Mainstream Media And The Politicians That They Worship Hate The Fact That They Cannot Control Internet News Sites

    IN THE OLD DAYS, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAD A VIRTUAL MONOPOLY ON THE NEWS.  BUT THESE DAYS, ANYONE WITH AN INTERNET CONNECTION CAN PUT UP A NEWS SITE,

    AND THIS IS DRIVING THE ESTABLISHMENT ABSOLUTELY BONKERS.

    For example, Barack Obama is known to have a great dislike for the alternative media.  The following is from a recent WND article

    NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd says President Obama was making it “clear” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend how he feels about the rise of Internet news sites like Politico, Buzzfeed and … well, WND.

    “He hates it.”

    Appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning following Saturday night’s media, politics and celebrity soiree, Todd explained the president’s disdain for independent online news sources was showing during his speech.

    “It did seem … I thought his pot shots, joke-wise, and then the serious stuff about the Internet, the rise of the Internet media and social media and all that stuff – he hates it, OK? He hates this part of the media,” Todd said. “He really thinks that the, sort of, the buzzification – this isn’t just about Buzzfeed or Politico and all this stuff – he thinks that sort of coverage of political media has hurt political discourse. He hates it. And I think he was just trying to make that clear last night.”

    #5 The Mainstream Media Is Extremely Liberal

    When it comes to politics, the mainstream media is far more liberal than the general population is.

    For example, one survey found that 41 percent of American voters believe that the average reporter is more liberal than they are, while only 18 percent believe that the average reporter is more conservative than they are.

    A very disturbing UCLA study on media bias discovered that the vast majority of media outlets are “left of center”…

    Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center, with CBS’ “Evening News,” The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ranking second, third and fourth most liberal behind the news pages of The Wall Street Journal.

    And even MSNBC has confirmed the liberal bias of the media.  According to MSNBC, mainstream journalists are far more likely to donate their own money to Democrats than they are to Republicans…

    MSNBC.com identified 143 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left: 125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes. Only 16 gave to Republicans. Two gave to both parties.

    #6 Six Mammoth Media Corporations Produce About 90 Percent Of The Media That Americans Consume

    As I mentioned at the top of this article, there are six giant media behemoths that control almost all of the media that we consume.  These corporate giants own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, video game makers, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.

    The media ownership chart posted below originally comes from a previous article that I authored entitled “Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read“, but it has been updated to reflect some of the latest information.  The power that these companies have is so vast that it is hard to put into words…

    #7 The American People Are Absolutely Addicted To The Mainstream Media

    In a previous article about the media, I noted that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month.

    When you allow that much information to be downloaded into your brain, it is going to have a dramatic impact on how you think.

    Americans are more “connected” than they ever have been before.  This is especially true of our kids.  They are constantly on one sort of electronic device or another.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Daniel Taylor

    According to a 2010 LA Times report, young people spend on average 53 hours a week watching TV, playing video games, and sitting at the computer.

    Facebook users spend about 15 hours a month on the social networking site.

    People are walking – and driving – blindly while texting, sometimes walking into fountains and even falling off cliffs.

    If that Los Angeles Times report is true, that means that our young people are spending more than 200 hours a month connected to the media.

    But we are only awake for about 480 hours a month.

    When it comes to influencing the American people, nobody has more power than the big media companies do.

    And until we can break this sick addiction to the mainstream media and get people to start thinking for themselves, we will never see widespread changes in our society.  As long as people are being “programmed” by the mainstream media, they will continue to express the opinions, attitudes and beliefs that have been downloaded into their minds.

    Please share this article with as many people as you can.  It is crucial that we wake as many people up as possible while we still can.

    A PUNDIT (sometimes also called a talking head) is a person who offers to MASS MEDIA his or her OPINION OR COMMENTARY on a particular subject area (most typically political analysis, the social sciences, technology or sport) on which he or she is knowledgeable (OR CAN AT LEAST APPEAR TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE), or considered
