Default Exposing the ugly, hidden world of left-wing media

Sharyl Attkisson is a seasoned reporter/investigative journalist, and formerly with CBS News. She is no longer with CBS because she has integrity and guts.
The investigative journalist spent 21 years with CBS before resigning in 2014. She is one of the few from that rarified climate to spill the beans on liberal bias in the media. Months after her resignation, her book, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington

,” rose to no. 5 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Sharyl Attkisson
In the same year America allowed in the Trojan horse named Obama, Attkisson was reporting on the lying left’s poster girl, Hillary Clinton. Attkisson pointed out that Clinton’s claims to have been under “sniper fire” in Bosnia was not true. No doubt she was growing disgusted with the people she saw up close for years.
One of Attkisson’s most impressive skills is the ability to think critically. Even better, she encourages others to do the same. From her website: “Investigative Journalist who tries to give you information others don’t want you to have. What you do with it is your own business. Do your own research. Seek advice from those you trust. Make up your own mind.”
Bernie Goldberg made a splash some years ago with his own sojourn at CBS; it’s quite interesting that Attkisson has charted a similar course, although the two focus on different subjects. Attkisson today anchors a public affairs program, “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson,” and her recent appearances on FOX News help represent her walk to daylight.
Most people simply have no idea how deep and pervasive leftist bias is in the media. Notice how Alan Colmes never gives any ground, and his sustained assaults on the right betray a loathing of his ideological opponents that is disturbing. Kudos to Attkisson for standing up to a whole community of Alan Colmes.

By 2010, Attkisson was winning awards for reporting on stories like tax dollar waste, but it was her brilliant look into the Fast and Furious scandal that signaled she was not just another New York liberal media member.
Not surprisingly, as she drifted farther from her journalistic home at CBS, Attkisson apparently became the subject of an investigation: Sharyl Attkisson.
She claimed her personal and business computers had been hacked by a third party, using “keystroke logging spyware.” And – get ready for it – the U.S. Justice Department denied any involvement. Later, Attkisson and her family filed suit against, among others, former Attorney General Eric Holder, for illegal surveillance activities.
In “Stonewalled
image: http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/i...1&a=0062322842
,” Attkisson provides a fascinating glimpse into the subtle methods used by liberal media figures who wanted to suppress stories; in this case, she describes attempting to get used to new anchor Scott Pelley in 2011:

I acquiesced to Pelley’s oppressive editing, the countless style changes and revisions. I felt a pit in my stomach as I agreed to alterations that softened the facts and made the story convoluted and difficult to follow. But I needed to understand and adjust to Pelley’s style so that we could work together successfully. As the process dragged on for weeks, it became clear that I was on a fool’s errand. The revision process never ended. Were they scared of going after the powerful entities in the story? Were they feeling heat from the entities’ strong pushback? They didn’t say. All I know is, the story would never air on Pelley’s broadcast.

The report that he had so effusively complimented was permanently sidelined. This soon became a distinguishable pattern. Profuse compliments were often proven hollow. In fact, some of us in the field remarked that it seemed like the more the New York fishbowl claimed to “love” a story, the greater the odds it would never air. They rarely said the story wasn’t going to air. They just let it sit around and “loved it” until it began to stink like old fish.
How very interesting. This is but one revealing story about Attkisson’s efforts to perform her craft in a most hostile environment. It also pulls back the curtain on just how tightly information has always been controlled by New York titans who want the public to know certain things … and not know others.
I wish Americans would fully come to realize how leftwing the media really are. We all owe reporters like Sharyl Attkisson a debt of gratitude for their willingness to see their careers short-circuited by ideologues that in some cases have diabolical intentions.

Being Presidential
Bloooowback: Trump Held a Rally on Saturday →
Why Nobody Believes the Leftwing Media
Posted on Sunday, February 19, 2017 by Post Scripts
Thanks go to Peggy for this find….
“Great article. The media is facilitating its own demise. I’ll highlight some of the content below, but worth reading it all.
Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing:
“No one believes the media anymore.
Every five minutes the many mouths of the media broadcast, type, post and shriek that President Donald J. Trump is a liar. After months of this treatment, more voters find him truthful than them.
49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth. Only 39% believe that the media is.
The media’s war on President Trump isn’t hurting him. It is destroying the media’s own credibility.
…..
The first time the New York Times called Trump a liar was during the election. Times editor Dean Baquet insisted that while Hillary Clinton might “obfuscate, exaggerate”, Trump was a liar. And when the Times printed lies about Trump, it too was no doubt merely obfuscating and exaggerating rather than lying.
The Times can’t call its own candidate who lied about landing “under sniper fire” in Bosnia, negotiating peace in Northern Ireland and being kept out of NASA and the Marine Corps by sexism, a liar. And yet it expects someone, anyone, to believe that calling Trump a liar is anything more than a partisan smear.
Before the first debate, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post and Politico all ran stories accusing Trump of being a liar. The coordinated attack failed to accomplish anything at all.
“Our president is a pathological liar. Say it. Write it. Never become inured to it,” Times columnist Charles Blow ranted in January. By February, the Times was reduced to writing explainers to explain why its lies weren’t working. “Why Nobody Cares the President Is Lying.”
The public had become inured to a partisan attack from a partisan press.
The more the media attacked Trump, the less effective those attacks became. To call anyone else a liar, you need to tell the truth. And truth requires objectivity. The media had discarded objectivity in pursuit of political goals, but still “identified” as objective. In the parlance of political correctness, you are what you “identify” as, but the real
world has never brought into this lie masquerading as a delusion.
Truth is not who you pretend to be. It’s who you are.
The media wanted the authority to determining who was lying without the responsibility of telling the truth. As the media made its partisan bias more obvious, it lost the credibility it needed. The more the media called President Trump a liar, the more the public believed that the media was lying.
……….
The media is doing more than ever. And it’s accomplishing less than ever.
Instead the media has become trapped in a cycle of impotence. The harder it attacks Trump, the more credibility it loses. And this makes its attacks on him even more spectacularly ineffective.
Its arrogance has become its own undoing.
……..
The billions of dollars in media infrastructure, printing presses, broadcast towers and licenses, are becoming more irrelevant every year. And the media’s credibility is becoming irrelevant even faster.
Without broadcasting infrastructure, the media’s reach depends on credibility. The majority of Democrats still believe the media. The vast majority of Republicans do not. The media is an echo chamber that reflects this partisan structure. And its echo doesn’t reach past the ranks of the left.
The media is baffled at the futility of its efforts against Trump. It still can’t conceive of a world in which it isn’t trusted or needed. But Americans already don’t trust the media. And they don’t need it either.
………
The existence of a professional class of men and women who write about events was a leftover from an era when communication speeds were rising, but distribution still required investing in infrastructure: whether it was a printing press or a broadcast tower. The internet makes distribution absurdly easy.
Even the old privileges of the press, like the press corps, can be easily stripped away from it, as the White House has demonstrated by expanding the press corps to include more conservative outlets.
The New York Times was once known as the paper of record because it set the agenda for smaller papers. As one editor declared, “We set the agenda for the country in that room.” But the Times doesn’t set the agenda anymore. The internet does.
……..
The media bemoans the collapse of its influence as a “post-truth world” filled with “Fake News” and “alternative facts”. But it was the media that destroyed its hegemony of credibility. After unveiling its “Fake News” smear, it quickly pulled it back again because it was all too easy for conservatives to use it to expose the flood of media lies.
A post-truth world rejects objectivity. The media imagines that its fact checks, which spin and editorialize shamelessly, put it on the side of truth. But truth is more than finding a factoid you can use to make a lie seem more plausible or a truth more unlikely. It’s intellectual honesty for its own sake.
The media believes that its left-wing goals are more important than objectivity or truth. But by abandoning the principles it claimed to live by, it destroyed its ability to achieve those goals.”

The media is more partisan than ever before.

Never in my life time has the media been recognized as liars, politically, in their news reporting. Never before have so many Americans seen the media as liars, and worse. It is so obvious to so many, that the MSM media is becoming a political tool to be used against the right.

Many Americans now just turn off the TV when the MSM stats the lies every day.

Attkisson's book "Stonewalled" explains the influence of politics and corporatism in big media as well as her experiences trying to report on F&F. Her correct perspective on tainted media news and information continues to be proven by FOIA, Wikileakes, and other investigations. The suspected collusion between news and special political interests is now confirmed for those that require documents. She has another book, "The Smear", which will be released in a couple of months.

How Cenk Uygur came to start his own news company is WHEN HE WAS AN MSNBC anchor , HE WAS ASKED TO tone it down, then he was moved to weekends and given a raise to shut up. because he would call out democrats as well as anyone else for wrong doing/ or report on their failings.

So here is your chance. Post up some thing to back up your claim.

My guess is you can't, even with a "Masters" degree.

Articulate man, articulate.
