Just a few weeks ago, Pat Caddell, a Democratic pollster/pundit and former adviser to Jimmy Carter, called the MFM “an enemy of the American people.”
Before his death, Andrew Breitbart was constantly warning us that our fight was not with Democrats, but rather it is “with the Mainstream Media and Institutional Left.”
Just before he died, Andrew called for a true vetting of President Obama, something that simply did not happen in 2008. Though he did not live to see it, many people led the charge and dozens of important works, from Dinesh D’Souza’s hit film 2016: Obama’s America to David Maraniss’s book “Barack Obama” did just that. But unfortunately, something else also became more clear than ever before, the corrupt media that Breitbart often assailed had its thumbs on the scales and tipped the election in the President’s favor.
Everything that Andrew predicted in my film, Hating Breitbart, played out in real-time during the election right before our eyes. From Candy Crowley interrupting and taking Obama’s side in the debate to George Stephonopoulous’s introducing the ‘war on women’ narrative in the primary debates, members of the so-called mainstream media did everything they could to re-elect Obama and they were successful. And many of us are, as Andrew so often was, righteously indignant. Some might even be feeling hopeless, tired or defeated. And while I can understand a temporary crisis of faith, I believe Andrew would refuse to surrender to a defeatist attitude over one election loss. He understood that the true fight is with the Mainstream Media and Institutional Left and that they don’t get ‘elected.’ We must bring the fight directly to them relentlessly. That was always his fight and that does not change with an election cycle.
When I read this story in the news yesterday, Oakland robbers attack TV cameraman, I immediately thought about the scenarios played out in this amazing piece of fiction, which N2L posted back in September.
From the fictional piece:
If the media lies, the media dies.
You take a side, you’re along for the ride.
A traitor in front of a camera is still just a traitor.
The first real jolt indicating a serious problem with the plan came when television reporter Cathy Carlsen was killed in Norfolk, shot dead while covering the commissioning of the Harvey Milk, the Navy’s newest destroyer…
…This single act of domestic terrorism immediately dampened the enthusiasm of most of our formerly reliable reporters to continue to carry our water. More such photographs of other media figures appeared on the internet with cross hairs over their faces. Most of the pictures were bogus, just Photoshop pranks, but they had a similar effect: our dependably cooperative reporters suddenly lost their nerve.
And the non-fiction story:
A KPIX news cameraman was punched and robbed during a live broadcast outside an Oakland high school, the latest in a spate of holdups targeting the media, police said Thursday.
Reporter Anne Makovec and cameraman Gregg Welk were on the air shortly after noon Wednesday outside Oakland Technical High School near the corner of 42nd Street and Broadway. They were at the school to do a story on the passage of Proposition 30, the tax measure preventing deep cuts to education.
As Makovec was finishing her report, police said, five men rushed up and grabbed a $6,000 camera from the tripod. Viewers saw the live picture being jarred and turned sideways for about two seconds.
One of the assailants punched Welk in the mouth before the group fled in a Mercedes-Benz, which apparently was accompanied by a Lexus, police said. Welk declined treatment by paramedics but saw his doctor.
And without even a hint of irony or awareness, the far-Left media reporting on this refuses to provide us with a description of the attackers. Because they’re black.
You now what I enjoy doing more than watching Californians get a heavy dose of misery? Watching the media get theirs.
Do I feel bad that members of the MFM were attacked and robbed by the very thugs that they provided politically-correct cover for all the time? No, I don’t.
Because Karma is a bitch.
