Congrtulations to the L.A Times for being the seemingly only major news publication in the country doing what the media is supposed to do. I am speaking once again about Operation Fast an Furious. Fox News is giving some superficial coverage,(gaining traction, tho) and the story has definitely gained traction on talk radio. And of course, kudos to CBS News for breaking this story in March of this year. The following link provides all the L.A. Times stories for the past several months. http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/atf-fast-furious-sg,0,3828090.storygallery.
Back in the day when the media was still doing it's job, this would have already led to impeachment proceedings for the President. Today, with the political correctness cancer calling the shots, this is largely ignored by the mainstream media.
In the early 70's, when Woodward and Bernstein relentlessly pursued the crimes of the Nixon administration, they were regarded as American heros with an academy award winning film following up their great work. Of course, that was a Republican administration, and the current one is Democrat. Where are the Woodward's now? The crimes being committed by the Obama administration make Nixon's look like petty child's play. Just read a little bit of history. Yet Nixon(who I am definitely no fan of), was tossed out as he should have been. For covering up a break in at a hotel. Obama and Holder are accesories to murder of hundreds of Mexicans as well as U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. This has all become very well documented...just look around a bit. Furthermore, Holder has blatantly lied to Congress reagarding his knowledge of the affair.
Yet if you check the websites and watch the broadcasts of ABC, NBC, and CNN, this story doesn't exist.
It is imperitive that Americans wake up to the fact that we are being swindled by the media. We have reached the point where news is filtered through an extreme left wing perspective(see Walter Cronkite's interview after his retirement), and that we are being kept away from the truth.
Think about it for a minute, and you will realize how dangerous all of this has become. The whole point of a free press is to keep the citizens informed of the actions of it's government. Our press today, for the most part, is simply a mouthpiece for the government. Our liberty and freedom are on the verge of vanishing. Wake up!
