“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.
These repeated messages aren’t aimed at an American audience. They are aimed at our allies in the Persian Gulf and Middle East who are scared sh**less over Obama’s actions and inactions. They drive home the point that Iran is THE force to be reckoned with and the United States is powerless. Sadly, who can say they are wrong.

In fact, they like to denigrate Iowa specifically by saying “Iowa picks corn, New Hampshire picks Presidents.” The actual truth is that New Hampshire has been on an unrelenting losing streak that goes back over three decades, for both parties.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Thanks Governor Christie. For nothing. You were a media darling back in 2013 when you overwhelmingly won re-election against a joke of a candidate in my former corrupt home state. That’s terrific. But you convinced yourself you could parlay that into a successful presidential run and you badly miscalculated. I wrote back in June of 2013 why you wouldn’t | Read More »
