MSM's Journolist Scandal: "Call Them Racists"
The growing "Journolist" scandal reported in Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller reveals what opponents of President Obama, even Geraldine Ferraro, have long known. The main tactic Obama's myrmidons in the media will use to protect him is to label his opponents racists.
I reported this truth in my piece on the expulsion of Mark Williams and his Tea Party Express from the National Tea Party Federation. The NAACP held a press conference calling the tea party movement to banish the racists from hits ranks. When Williams penned a satirical letter to Abraham Lincoln from the NAACP's chief Ben Jealous, the federation knee-capped him.
Now, we learn as my piece on Williams reported, that Ferraro was more right than she thought.
"Journolist" is that inchoate collection of left-wing journalists who conspired in cyber-space to protect Obama the candidate from the growing scandal of his association with hate minister Jeremiah Wright.
A top journolist member called leftist George Stephanopolous a "disgusting little rat snake" because a debate the former Clinton information minister moderated with Charles Gibson included questions about Wright for Obama: â€s'Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?â€t( Stephanopolous asked.
Beyond that, of Obama's conservative media critics, another journolister suggested this: "call them racists." The same fellow suggested a plan for dealing with these "racists:" "[F]ind a rightwinger's [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window."
Today, The Daily Caller reported that journolisters expected the government shut down Fox News.
There you have it: Anyone who opposes Obama is a racist. News organizations that don't toe the party line must be censored.
But the media are not, of course, biased.
