Palin cries foul? You betcha! This is what the so-called mainstream media have devolved to. Any pretense of objectivity is just that, a pretense. We've known it for years, but I must say I find is incredibly gratifying to see the masks finally come off-- Halloween adding a bit of irony to the mix --even though this latest incident isn't the first.

Personally, I am tired of the morally corrupt Left. So here are some questions to consider...

What is the media, and why does the average American accept their word for anything? Are individual members of media better educated? Better informed? More trustworthy? Is there anything remotely elite about their position, their understanding, their grasp of stark facts and nuance?

For myself, the media, first and foremost are ideologues and ratings whores (with obvious exceptions), and the average American is lazy (with obvious exceptions). Members of media are neither better educated, nor better informed, when the average American opens his eyes and mind to personal responsibility; a man who takes responsibility for the direction of his life and community educates himself, not relying on anyone he doesn't know to tell him what to think or believe. And the media are clearly not trustworthy, as this incident alone proves; though countless others have already iced that cake.

Many on the left would and do esteem the media (left-leaning liberal media) as elite and therefore 'better' than the average American in intellect, but the reality could not be further from the truth. Especially in terms of objectivity, and for this they are not to be trusted.

Palin is right to be outraged. We ALL should. Because media has bent over backward to prop up a president to the exclusion of sense and sensibilities, at the expense of truth and honesty.

The leftist media are liars. They want us to believe their point of view is the majority view... it is not. They want us to believe that they are paragons of virtuous motive... when they aren't. They want us to believe they have this nation's best interest at heart.

Liars! Bastards all!

Why such harsh language? Anything not born of truth is a bastardization of truth. And we've had enough of that to last our lifetimes. In roughly 230 years we have come full circle back to where this nation began; a plutarchy wherein the wealthy rules for the wealthy.

This is Obama's vision of America. Under the guise of making the American dream 'more fair' he is in fact establishing a ruling class. And like soviet Russia, everyone not 'in the club' become members of the new American serfdom.

If only the media did the job they purport to doing. There might be a bit of honesty in the so-called mainstream media. But as things currently stand. There is not honesty. Only bastards. The illegitimate fitz-spawn of Edward R. Murrow.

Your entire post is based on Sarah Palin's LIE. She does NOT have the tape. Breitbart has the tape and won't release an uncut version. Therefore there is no reason to believe he or Palin are telling the truth.

Furthermore, according to Politico, the CBS affiliate General Manager denies the story. "“The allegations are untrue,” he said. “To allege that our staff was discussing or planning to create or fabricate stories regarding candidate Miller is absurd. The complete conversation was about what others might be able to do to cause disruption within the Miller campaign, not what KTVA could do.”"

According to Politico... a Leftist news site.

According to you, everything that comes out of a conservative's mouth is a lie. The only problem with that is the long list of liberals caught lying themselves.

So, sorry... just 'cause you say she's lying doesn't mean you're right. It just means you parrot the tropes of your liberal handlers.

It's not me saying she's lying. And Politico is hardly leftist. But even if it had been reporting, what the affiliate general manager SAID is a fact. See, Politico actually did some journalism by first going to the "accused" organization to learn more about what did or didn't happen.

Furthermore, I listened to what FOX News [sic] offered as "the tapes" on O'Reilly last night. There is NOTHING there. And that's the EDITED version!

Making up stuff is lying.

"According to you, everything that comes out of a conservative's mouth is a lie."

There you go, making up stuff. What do we call that?

She sounds nutty and, Brother Eric, you sound distraught. Relax a bit, fella.

"The media" is, of course, a range of folk and groups with a range of beliefs. They are, of course, not "more elite" than anyone else, but hopefully, GOOD reporters have informed themselves on a given topic better than I have and thus, are worth listening to. Good reporters.

We, the people, CAN'T be informed and knowledgable about every single possible topic out there and thus, listening to a reporter on a story helps inform the people. It is a vital part of the democratic system.

Are there "bad" reporters out there? Those who'd place ideology or money over objectivity and truth? Of course. There always have been. And even amongst the "good" reporters, personal beliefs are bound to affect the reporting.

And so, we the people ought to listen to news to inform ourselves, but we should do so with a grain of salt and from a variety of sources. As, I believe, most adults do.

Things aren't nearly so bad, brother Eric. Relax.

Happy holiday season to you, in this beautiful advent time of year..

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
