All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


6 Points on Boston

Fellow blogger Professor Hale, raises six good points about the Boston False Flag Operation.  He's linked on the side bar but you can catch the post here. I point out his post because it unintentionally illustrates something about America today.  Hale makes six excellent points which illuminate the news from Boston in a way not covered by the media.  They also reveal something deeper and more troubling about our society than most folks want to talk about.

You should read his post for his take on Boston.  I'm concerned with the subtext and so my comments are limited to that.  The media is once again making a mess of reporting the news and it shows.

It doesn't add up.  This is true of most of the news today.  America's newsrooms are agenda driven.  When we have something news worthy happen, it is spun before it is reported.  What we end up with is a news product designed to accomplish a political goal.  This is bad.

Confuse the information. The reporters in this country are more about pushing agenda than reporting facts.  When a story first breaks the media is so focused on misreporting it that they often blunder.  When they are so obtuse that they can't stay on script they do their best to muddy the picture in an effort to keep everyone guessing about the who, what, when and where of the situation.

Keep pushing, no matter what.  It's easy to see from the news reports that we have on Boston that: 1. No one reporting on it has any clue whats going on, 2. The DOUT are going to make the most of it.  It used to be that opinions on the events of the day were reserved for the commentary page of the paper, today "reporting" is largely a result of the slanting of, or omitting of facts.

Have an answer, let it be the wrong one.  In America today we face lots of problems.  The solutions to those problems have clear easy to see solutions.  Never ever should any of those solutions be discussed by the media.  For instance, we know what group of people have a history of using terror to advance their political/religious views.  They've done it throughout history.  They do it throughout the western world today and they've done it repeatedly in the USA.  So obviously the first group to blame when something like this happens is right wing extremists.  After all, we all know that a bunch of beer bellied bible thumping deer hunters are the reason everything is bad in America and what better target for their hate than a group of health nut marathoners. 

Earlier this month I posted about the police throwing away their moral authority to protect and serve America.  The Media in America has done the same thing.  They have abandoned their role of providing the facts to the public.  They exchanged that role for being consensus builders and opinion makers.   They don't do any of it well and in their haste to ride the gravy train they are helping destroy America in their own way.
