First of all, I am one of the ATS members here who isn't afraid of the MSM. I used to listen to theorists like Alex Jones and listen to him talk
about these people. I enjoy watching the MSM so I know what the neocon fascists are doing. Anyways, allow me to present my case to you and why I
think more Americans should be outraged. Let me start off by explaining to the foreign viewers how bad the media here in America is. I'm sure
you're watching the health-care debate. That's not the bias that I'm going to be filling you in on.
People will go on talking about the media being biased towards the left here in America. People will also talk about the media being biased towards
the right here (fox news). They're all wrong. They say that CNN is liberally biased as well... and that ABC is Democratically biased. MSNBC is
supposedly liberally biased. They're wrong there too.
CNN is more of a fascist news organization. MSNBC is more filled with neoconservative types against Iran, and, they're more federalist types. MSNBC
is filled with Democrats who favor a strong central government. They usually don't air liberal views as they don't usually air comments critical of
the federal reserve.
ABC is just a sensationalized news program... where it's just presenting stories after stories. These stories don't add up to anything... if you
watch an ABC evening news program you'll see nothing but touchy and mushy and emotional stories designed to pull at your emotions. They're mainly
Fox news is more neoconservative as I've said. I've been watching fox news for a while and I always see fox commentators argue in favor of force.
They claim to be for smaller government and yet they go right around and say they want to use more brute force in Afghanistan (CNN does this as well),
or, that they want to use the state to alter the economy (via tax cuts). They also talk positive about Iraq. These are points of views that are
advocated from the news networks. Outfoxed is actually a good documentary that I advise you to watch. It's actually quite reliable. And it
displays their bias.
CNBC is typically Democratically biased. That is they are heavily biased towards the Democrats. They favor bigger government, and, they advocate
these views on its programs.
Alright... let me start providing you with examples. I've talked enough. Now it's time for me to start showing you the proof.
Example 1- CNN is a fascist neoconservative news group... and it tries to confuse viewers by presenting them no real news.
1 Hour of CNN Yields Less Than 5 Minutes of News
After months of observation, TVNL has discovered that after 6 minutes into any news broadcast on these networks, no more news is reported for the
hour. What viewers get instead is biased speculation, in depth tabloid stories (a la the Star or the National Inquirer), stories of local or regional
interest, and a great deal of infomercial content.
To illustrate this point, TVNL taped and analyzed a one hour CNN news program aired on September 5th, 2003 at 7:00 PM EST, during the prime time
evening news hour.
I've been watching CNN at the gym, and when I watch them, they cover a story and talk about a spin over and over. Yet they don't cover more things.
They take a really long time covering one thing.
As for CNN's neoconservative agenda, let me show you a few articles with quite a bias slant against Iran to prove my point as this is what I've been
seeing on TV all the time anyhow:
Take a look at what this one CNN news anchor said in regards to Iran, sure it's not representative of all CNN news anchor, but it does reveal their
KING: All right. We know -- and correct me if I'm wrong, please -- that you were skeptical about that, in fact, opposed to that. You didn't
think that was the way to go. Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, has said publicly many times how skeptical he is about the
military options here. I just want you to help an American out there who says, we can't trust Ahmadinejad, this has been going on for years. We
don't think sanctions will work. Why don't we do something about it? Explain to that person out there, whether they work in the United States
Congress or whether it's just an average American, when you look at the contingencies that you have available to you and the president has available
to him, are there any good military options when it comes to these deep underground facilities?
GATES: Well, without getting into any specifics, I would just say we obviously don't take any options off the table.
If you look in the transcript you'll see other things with bias towards wanting a military action against Iran.
This article doesn't just talk about the Iranian test missiles. It also covers other biased remarks. I think that I've proved my point with CNN.
As for their bias towards the President: that can probably be seen here- while on its face it doesn't look too biased... it certainly does seem
biased if you look between the lines. www.cnn.com...
That being said, CNN has Lou Dobbs but
other than that... yeah.
ABC. Let me talk about ABC for a minute. This is supposedly another Democratic news group. ABC is certainly biased towards the government. I'll
probably be able to find a few links that shows its bias and sensationalism.
Okay, these articles should have shown you the bias. Note in the Afghanistan article they never say they're not against more troops. They just say
that perhaps they could do it with Afghanistan troops as well. They're still arguing for the war. As for the other two articles- they show the
sensationalism that gets displayed on ABC often.
Let me now present my case for MSNBC. MSNBC is a neoconservative Democrat news group.
This one article may look moderate- but at the end of the article they accuse Iran of not having a peaceful nuclear weapons facility.
Now, I'm not providing this article as a value-judgment on the legislation. It's just that this article shows that MSNBC is attributing positive
language to various parts of legislation that are being pronounced.
See, MSNBC is statist. They're NOT liberal. At least in the traditional sense of the word. MSNBC advocates for more of a centralized economy...
and this is why people say that it's statist or a socialist news group. MSNBC is completely partisan... and while you can't find stuff on their
websites they always seem to have a pro-Democrat view on their channel.
In most of these articles you can see that CNBC shows some kind of interventionist slant. CNBC seems to be following a swine flu/economic
recovery/statist agenda of some sort. They're progressive leaning... but they're more statists with regards to economic intervention and they
clearly express that with their bias.
Fox news, the last and final one seems to be more biased to take advantage of ignorant consumers than the others. They seem more neoconservatively
biased than the rest, and, more obviously Republican biased. They're not particularly too conservative... but you get my drift.
Some news headlines to prove my point:
I think you can see the bias.
So why aren't more people outraged over this neoconservative fascist agenda in the MSM? Am I the only one that's kind of outraged about this? I
really don't know... I really can't be the only one here. I can't be the only one that's mad and upset about this fascist MSM. There has to be
more people upset... I mean are they all just pacified by the TV is that why they aren't upset?
