    Make the Leftist Media the 2016 Issue

    April 11, 2015
    Make the Leftist Media the 2016 Issue

    By Bruce Walker

    The enemy of conservatism in America is the leftist establishment – the leftist-controlled institutions of news, education, and entertainment. Take away these big, fat incestuously connected institutions, and the left in America is a circus sideshow and nothing else. Democrat “leaders” like Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, and Reid are slow-witted, mean-spirited, and narrow-minded sock puppets filled by the chubby hands of the leftist establishment.

    Indeed, the leftist establishment prefers empty vessels as nominal political leadership of the Democratic Party. Defeat the establishment, and the battle is won, but as long as the establishment luxuriates in unmerited respect, the values we treasure face constant peril. Winning elections, particularly the 2016 presidential election, will help advance our policy issues, but an even greater benefit can come if we use this election to discredit the leftist establishment.

    This leftist establishment is already losing much of its cachet. Viewers are shunning films and new television programming made by Hollywood leftists. Parents, students, and conservative media are exposing the leftist totalitarianism in classrooms. The leftist establishment media is losing audiences in a steady decline, motivated in large part by conservative disgust with its slavish following of the party line.

    In the 2016 election cycle, which includes the battle for the Republican nomination and then the battle in the general election, Republican candidates ought to publicly announce that they will decline interviews with news organizations patently hostile to conservatives, that the Republican nomination debates will exclude these as well, and that this ban will extend throughout the general election.

    This would be an overt campaign to de-legitimize this corrupt gaggle of leftist organizations as serious news organizations worthy of the attention of America. The left would howl, of course, but so what? No serious conservative ought to be talking to those hostile “gotcha!” outlets anyway. So we ought to treat these leftist news outlets as the ideological hacks that they are and deny them the chance to make Republicans look bad or silly by “gotcha” questions.

    Isn’t this precisely how the left operates with conservative media? How often have we seen Hillary or Harry or Nancy or Barry give interviews to Human Events or National Review or Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin? We are so used to leftist sock puppets like Hillary ignoring questions from conservative news journalists (while our guys feel compelled to treat leftist news hacks seriously) that we assume that this must be the natural state of things in American politics.

    So how will Republicans candidates communicate with voters? There are reputable cable news outlets, like Fox News, which are not overtly hostile to conservatives. There are many conservative talk radio programs to which any interested Republican can tune in. There are dozens of internet news outlets (e.g., American Thinker). The print media still exists, and local newspapers, especially, would welcome exclusive interviews, hosting debates, etc.

    Attacking the establishment leftist media is attacking the real enemy of conservative values and policies. Openly attacking the leftist media establishment also places these giant corporations in a real bind. How will CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and the sibling leftist news corporations react? Attacking the Republican Party validates the conservative argument. Combined attacks by these notional “competitors” would expose the monopolistic nature of leftist media collaboration in suppressing conservative news stories and proposals.

    In fact, it is this very lack of ideological competition, this collusion by vast news corporations that are supposed to provide protection for the news consumer by actual competition, that could become the major campaign issue for Republicans. The left wants to attack big corporations, while actually Democrats are completely in bed with big business – and especially with the leftist establishment news media, which has vast power over politics in Washington.

    It is hard to imagine a single conservative in America who could not understand and would not enthusiastically support this sort of campaign, and it is hard to imagine a single leftist who would not squirm at having to defend these entrenched corporations. Making Big Media the issue could, in fact, be precisely the means to truly energize conservatives and, by making Democrats the obvious toadies of Big Media, to deflate the left in 2016.

    The Number One Issue of 2016 will be Immigration, not the Media. The media simply follows the news and a little known effort called Public Relations. All these sob story articles about illegal aliens we read? Those aren't media developed stories, those are pre-written planted stories by public relations firms who send their nice well written articles complete with photos to thousands of media outlets and commentator/opinion writers and hope for a slow day and for one or two of them to publish the articles or change a word or two and have a writer use it to plant it with a newspaper or magazine they write for. These public relations efforts are funded by our 501 C 3 tax fraud "charities" that represent illegal aliens, foreign workers and foreign governments.

    Every propaganda article must be challenged - take it to them.

    Exactly. And I call upon the Media to investigate some of these articles they're sent to find out if the illegal aliens in the articles are real. I don't think most of them are, and for those who are, they need to investigate their "story" to find out what is real and what isn't, and vet the illegal aliens the same way they vet a black kid gunned down by a neighborhood watch dude, you know take pictures of their vehicles, their family, follow them to work, get the names of their illegal employers, follow their kids to school, get snitches to release their school records, you know, all the same stuff they do to a citizen in the news.

    Watergate was THE challenge of the press in the 20th century. Frightening power had to be confronted to expose truth. Success was achieved, and the power was brought down.

    A consequence still happening of that event is that all "journalists" are reaching for the stars, hoping to be the next journalistic star, achieving lasting fame as two reporters working the Watergate story.

    Had the Watergate event never happened, the consequence would not exist, either. But reality is what it is, and we must personally adjust to sorting the wheat from the chaff in what is published for consumption. Another reality delivered by political over stepping. There have been many political over steps over history by several parties. It's another reason that I agree with Thomas Jefferson when he warned that political parties could destroy our nation. How can that be questioned today, in the 21st century? How close do we have to be to destruction to admit error?

    Yeah, and the shame of it, is Richard Nixon was actually one of our greatest Presidents, he established the EPA to protect our environment, OSHA to protect our work force, he ended segregation in the South and did so quietly without fanfare because he was committed to civil rights, he ended the War in Vietnam, and he was working on changing the federal work week before overtime sets in from 40 hours to 32 hours, a 4 day work week instead of a 5 day work week, because he felt that with long commutes and the stress of 2 income families, the average American didn't have enough free time to enjoy their lives and spent too much on day care expenses. He also wanted to pass a law that required zero-based budgeting for the federal government that would require each agency every year to justify every dime of their budget, to clean out old programs no longer needed and reduce the size of government which would have gone a very long ways towards balancing the budget and preventing over-spending on programs that no longer benefit our nation in any measurable way.

    So Deepthroat and a pair of junior journalists showed him, didn't they? It's a shame, really, how far back they pushed our country so they could reach for the stardom of a Pulitzer.

    Shame is self imposed by most of those shamed, usually caused by poor decision making or egomania.

    Yeah, Nixon was a good guy who stuck by his guys. He was exonerated of having anything to do with the break-in, but he did make a bad decision to try and cover it up. He did that to protect these guys who had worked with him for years. He should have thrown them to the wolves for their actions, and it's a shame he didn't, because he risked his entire Presidency over what he believed to be a few good men, who really weren't.
