Except.....why are proper reporters, with obvious credentials hanging on their necks, brutalized???
I mean, a woman who had ACCESS to the floor of the RNC convention, when alerted to the abuse of power, outside, by the 'police', against her
colleagues....naturally went out to ask about it, and in turn, was arrested herself!!!!
Doesn't anyone see the problem here>>>????
People might see a problem here if they believed any of it was true. This entire story reaks of BS. It's all hearsay, and none of it means anything.
Which is why I keep telling those concerned, to document, document, document. Take some friends to these events, with plenty of cameras and
batteries. Setup observation points ahead of or before an event, out of harms way and record everything, from start to finish. It’s one thing to
represent, it’s another game altogether to show the world what really happens.
This is how the news media captures exactly what they need, be they left or be they right. True, the only thing seen on the evening news is a few
seconds of an event, but what is displayed is what THAT media wants to show you. It’s called editing, it is intentional and serves the purpose of
delivering a specific agenda or spin and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see it once you understand how it’s done.
Surely, you’ve all noticed reporters at an event, recording the entire time, only to see a short sound bite on the evening news. That’s how it
works. Did you really think that the news media “discovered” a prevailing attitude? Come on, you guys are smarter than that. It’s just like
when the engineer “accidently” left Jesse Jackson’s microphone hot. That was a gift from a disgruntled soundboard engineer, tired of listening
to another politician getting away with hypocrisy. Consider it a gift, while you can, anytime you hear someone on the air speak in a manner that
doesn’t match their routine persona.
And before anybody starts flaming me for promoting a means to create propaganda, I also recommend that a reporter archive their entire footage from an
event so it can later be reviewed to check on the integrity of content, post edit. This used to be one of the rules of broadcast media reporting.
The idea to archive was tossed out somewhere around the Nixon administration, yes the very same people who brought you the Controlled Substance
As far as this OPs political point of view, it doesn’t matter to me near as much as the fact that he is concerned with politics and wants to make a
difference. I would hope more people follow his example and attend a political event instead of just watching a three second sound bite on the news
or dumping on a person for wanting to deliver his perspective.
And for those critical of protestors and demonstrators, shame on you, it was a protest that gave you your freedom. A protest that delivered the vote,
a protest that gained equal rights, a protest that ensured dignity to those who couldn’t speak up for themselves, a protest that saved millions of
innocent people from harm and brutality, shame on you. Voting has only ever determined the details of an idea that came to maturity from a protest!
