Bullies in the newsroom

By Bradlee Dean

Today’s state-run media gives us knowledge of what is going on in America and around the world. And, of course, with their socialist agendas behind their reporting, attempting to bully anyone who stands against it into submission.

Although the media have a damaging 21 percent approval rating (rightly so), according to a recent Gallup poll, it still seems as though the locomotive of socialism runs full steam ahead.

It has been said by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Democracy becomes a government of bullies tempered by editors.” (America is a republic ruled by law, not through the media’s contrived mobocracy.)

Let’s pull the curtain back on the media so you can see who is doing the reporting.

In 1917, Rep. Oscar Callaway entered a disturbing statement into the congressional record:

J.P. Morgan, a banker and a steel tycoon, hired 12 high-ranking news managers and editors, and asked them to determine the most influential newspapers in America. He wanted to control the policy of the daily press of the United States (that policy being whatever they wanted it to be). The 12 found that it was only necessary to purchase 25 of the greatest newspapers. An agreement was reached, the policy of the papers was bought, and an editor of their choice was placed at each paper to ensure that all published information was in keeping of the new policy. (Again, keep in mind it was their policy.)

In a nutshell, what are they doing? The news media is being controlled by very few people throughout major networks in the United States and worldwide. There are those who are trying to rearrange reality to become the reality they want you to believe in.

Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman, two media scholars, interviewed 240 news anchors, editors and news writers, and here’s what they found:

1)     47 percent of those who report the news in this country believe that adultery is OK.

2)     76 percent of those who report the news see nothing wrong with homosexuality.

3)     90 percent of those who write your papers in this country believe there is nothing wrong with aborting a baby.

4)     86 percent of those who write your paper in this country seldom or never attend church.

Richard Salant, former president of CBS news, said: “Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” That’s pretty arrogant, isn’t it?

Walter Cronkite, former CBS news anchor said, “News reporters are certainly liberal and left of center.”

Herman Dismore, foreign editor of the New York Times, said, “The New York Times is deliberately pitched to the liberal point of view.”

Richard Cohen, senior producer for CBS, said, “We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.”

America, it is time to turn the television off (Psalm 101:3; 2 Corinthians 6:17). You have two options: Stand for truth and demand justice, or become the victims of your own undoing and be trodden under the foot of oppression by tolerating the ideology of those who report the news.
