America’s Nooze Media: The Dog That Didn’t Bark

Maybe you remember Sherlock Holmes, in Silver Blaze, explaining to Watson a significant clue: the fact that a watchdog didn’t bark.

Well, here we have our big-time nooze media, which loves to call itself a watchdog, learning of a scheme to insert the federal government into TV and radio newsrooms–and the dog didn’t bark. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and all the rest–and not so much as a yip out of any one of them. “First Amendment? We don’t need no stinkin’ First Amendment!”

The FCC shelved the project after one of its own commissioners blew the whistle on it. Otherwise, we would’ve awakened one morning to a fait accompli–government “monitors” and “researchers”–that is, goons–in the newsrooms to see that the editors and reporters covered the stories that the White House felt should be covered, and burked the stories the White House wanted burked. That’s how you protect the Regime from unwanted stories of Climate Change denial, Benghazi, the cornucopia of scandal pouring out of the government, Obamacare glitches, etc., etc. That’s how you get non-stop coverage of whatever Dear Leader wants you to see.

Not a peep out of the free press. Happily, we now have enough “alternative media” to make a stink about this scheme and embarrass Congress into demanding explanations. And so it went back onto George Soros’ wish list… probably to be revived another day.

Just as a thought experiment, try to imagine what the nooze media reaction would have been, had President George W. Bush made just a little joke about doing something like this.

The howl of protest would be heard beyond the Solar System.

It is distressing to learn that the free press has so little interest in keeping the press free.

But that’s leftists for you–the sworn enemies of freedom, every day, in every way.

    MRC-that’s Media Research Center. They are doing a great job of playing detective as they discover and report lies in the “nooze-papers”.

    Their “tell the truth” campaign was very well done. To tell the truth those businesses who advertise in the “nooze” are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.”

    I know because years ago I tried to get local businesses to join together and campaign for truth in the local one to no avail. Now they are paying. Today, it’s more like “No nooze is good news”.
