I have got to hand it to the folks over at FOX News. These establishment cronies masquerading as journalists have convinced America that journalism and reality itself are fair and balanced. They have the American people believing that there is always two sides to every issue and that every issue discussed in a public forum must allow equal time and representation to both sides and that countering “opinions” merit equal consideration.
The truth is that reality is rarely balanced. If it is raining outside you can not report that it is not raining just for the sake of being fair and balanced. Practicing “balanced” coverage of reality in essence distorts reality. This is dangerous. It prevents the public from accurately assessing important issues. It is like having one friend tell you not to drink and drive. They tell you the very real facts about how alcohol impairs your vision, affects your reflexes and is responsible for the overwhelming majority of vehicular homicides. Then, just to be balanced you listen to another persons who tells you that it is OK to drive because you only had a few drinks and you only live a few blocks away and so on and so on. Then they cite statistics that show that driving fatalities are caused by many things, not only alcohol and because they found a source for this information that does not view deaths related to drinking and driving as real “homicides”, the numbers look different. That’s balanced, but is it really the kind of balance that we need in this world? Do we really need an opinion that is clearly wrong and clearly dangerous just for the sake of having balance?
Following FOX News’ pathetically unrealistic precedent, the ABC daytime talk show called The View decided that they had to “balance” the reality and common sense provided by Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell with the idiocy and blind establishment parroting of Elisabeth Hasslebeck. Sometimes ignorance is dangerous. In the case of Ms. Hasslebeck ignorance is not only dangerous, but it is painfully embarrassing. I don’t watch the program often, but I do tune in from time to time, mostly to hear a rare sound byte of reality on an establishment controlled broadcast. This reality usually comes from Joy Behar or Rosie O’Donnell about issues like 9/11, the Bush administration or Iraq. On these rare occasions I have witnessed the most embarrassing example of a typical American citizen who is completely oblivious to the realities of the world; Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Personally I have not heard a single sentence uttered by this Republican talking point TIVO machine that I could not personally shred and expose as partial information, incomplete information, out of context information or a fabricated misrepresentation of known, officially acknowledged and in most cases undisputed reality.
Now before anyone thinks that I believe that the problem with Ms. Hasslebeck stems from the fact that she utters Republican talking points as opposed to uttering Democratic talking points…do some homework. Research me. Read my writings. This is not about left vs. right. This about a little fairy tales known as American Democracy and the wonderful do no wrong history of the United States of America. Folks, official undisputed history paints a very different picture of the world than the establishment media does. I expose media deception as my profession. I do it full time. I can not explain this claim or back it up in one blog entry. I can however offer to debate anybody on this issue, on TV, with the establishment media big shots. So before anyone ‘discredits’ this article or my opinion, keep in mind that I would gladly be a guest on The View, 60 Minutes, FOX News, CNN, etc, and I would gladly show the world how these media criminals are the greatest threat to American freedom and democracy. In essence I can show Americans that the media is our enemy. I don’t tell people this, I show people this. There is a difference. I offer to back up everything I say, in person, on TV. Even on The View.
Now back to The View. Consider the definition of “balance” in context to the meaning intended by FOX News or our current crop of establishment media criminals: “a state of equilibrium or parity characterized by cancellation of all forces by equal opposing forces.” Taking that definition into account in order to provide balance to “reality”, “truth” or “facts,” you would need something radically “unreal” or “baseless.” Enter Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Here you have the counter balance, if you will, to the legitimate fact based information provided to viewers of the television program The View by Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell. What about Barbara Walters you say? Well, Ms. Walters, just like a great many so called journalists and media personalities, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Like the other members of the media who are also part of this secretive organization, Ms. Walters does not inform her viewers about her association with the CFR and like the rest of the CFR members she is not allowed to discuss what goes on at the CFR. Keep in mind that a journalist is supposed to be a professional tattle tale. The Constitution protects journalists (the only profession protected by the Constitution) so that journalists can report back to the people what their elected officials are doing. They are not suppose to join secret organizations that are a very big, yet secretive part of our government apparatus, and then not tell the people what goes on. So to the question “what about Barbara Walters.”, my answer is…I consider her the enemy. She probably knows much more about what has taken place in this world than she has reported to her viewers and I am sure some of the things she has helped to keep secret or to played an active role in deceiving the public about would cause you to agree with my sentiments.
Reality has never been as unbalanced as it is now when it comes to the government of the United States. There is an endless list of disturbing “FACTS”, make that alarming facts related to the Bush administration when it comes to stolen elections, the events of 9/11, lying to start wars, eroding our rights, eliminating our freedom, human rights violations, weakening our nation, obliterating world opinion of our nation, etc. (Again…I offer to back up my claims on TV…but for now you can see the hundreds of pages of documented evidence on the TvNewsLIES.org web site.) We don’t need balance. We need reality. We need to discuss exactly what takes place in the world. We don’t need opinion, we need information. Providing us with this information is the Constitutional obligation of the press. The media should be informing us about what is happening, not exposing us to opinions or counter opinions about what is happening. Joy & Rosie provide us with information. Yes, I know that the information is delivered in an emotional politically charged wrapping, but they provide information none the less; a rarity for TV these days. Elisabeth repeats government talking points. That is not what the media is there for. The media is there to question government, not provide it with free advertising.
So I ask you this…do we really need Elisabeth Hasselbeck “distorting The View“ just for the sake of balance? Think about it!
