“All a journalist has to do is go up and go ‘hi, how are things going?’ and people will tell them the truth. But you don’t see any reports”
The above is an interview of Big Government’s Lee Stranahan by Tony Katz on behalf of The Franklin Center. In the first half of the video, Stranahan discusses the Pigford case, and how he came to work with Andrew Breitbart. In the second half, starting around 1:55, Stranahan blasts the media for their total blackout on coverage of the ugliness, racism, rape, and more at the occupy encampments.
The lack of journalistic integrity in this country still manages to astound me. They’re not just covering for Obama; they literally pass over what would normally be considered “juicy” stories (remember the axiom ‘if it bleeds, it leads’) in order to prevent any harm coming to a leftist protest movement. As Stranahan points out, the flip side is that the same press couldn’t STOP covering the tea party from a negative perspective, posting speculative and alarming reports, both online and on the air, suggesting all manner of evil doings at our events. The starkness of the double standard in this case blows my mind.
Stranahan worked with Citizens United on a new documentary titled Occupy Unmasked, which is coming out this spring. At least there’s somebody willing to report facts.

He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats’ eventual nominee. | Read More »

It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
