Speaking Truth to Power
Ace of Spades described the dark reality facing the country today. At no other time in history have we seen such an unabashed union of the media and Democrat Party. They don’t even try to hide it anymore. Reporters used fake names to buy Obama swag this election. They offered advice to the Obama campaign. They conspired in their attacks on Mitt Romney… We’ve never seen anything quite like it. And, it’s only getting worse.
This comment below comes from Ace’s post on the “full and seamless fusion of media power with government power.”
You’re not being alarmist. It’s the single most threatening development in my lifetime. It’s hard to believe it has actually happened — how did the graduates of the finest liberal schools in the world come to a shared conviction in the importance of their own professional corruption, to subvert the essential ethic of journalism and the First Amendment? Amazing, really — every cautionary tale of the 20th century is at our disposal, right there to see both in reality and in our literature — and all are ignored or sneered at in the name of ideology and power. What profound ignorance and arrogance.
The true source of Obama’s power is completely overlooked (or willfully ignored) by the GOP, perhaps because it is too terrifying to contemplate, too awesome to engage: that he has completely removed an investigative and anti-authoritarian media (in Mencken’s famous adage, one committed in part “to afflicting the comfortable”) from the political dynamic. Obama operates with the most massive propaganda arm ever been seen in modern history. He is essentially invulnerable. At no point did Romney/Ryan come close to addressing this sick truth so dangerous to our society and freedoms. Nor do any other Republicans. Breitbart alone found expression for his moral outrage and developed a plan of counter-attack. Since he died, however, the game has gone back to carping and chronicling “media bias.” We need a battle plan.
Indeed, Andrew Breitbart understood the Democrat-media complex like no one else.
