Liberal journalist: ‘This White House seems to want only state media’

journoAs we have reported time and again, the so-called mainstream media is little more than the de facto propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, which is why we call it the “Democrat-media complex.”

So it came as something of a shock to learn that a left-leaning journalist actually criticized the White House for wanting a state-controlled media.

“You have, on the one hand, President Obama saying that his administration is  going to be the most transparent in history and that they want to be friends with the press,” Jeremy Scahill said in an appearance on “Democracy Now” Thursday.  “And on the other hand, they are monitoring the metadata of journalists, they  are seizing phone records, they are trying to compel journalists to testify  against their sources, they are trying to figure out who journalists are talking  to within government so that they can go and indict those people.”

“Our profession, our trade is the only  one specifically cited in the Constitution for a reason,” he added. “When all  three branches of the government are colluding against the interests of the  people, it’s the responsibility of journalists to hold them accountable. But  this White House, like Bush’s before, they seem to want only state media. They  want everything to look like MSNBC, and that’s not real journalism.”

Of course, that assumes one considers MSNBC a “news” source, when it really is nothing more than a collection of uninformed radical leftists advancing a socialist-Marxist agenda.  If Obama said the moon was made of green cheese, everyone at MSNBC would call anyone racist who disagrees.  Yes, that’s how far “journalism” has fallen.
