The Media Cannot Play Coy Anymore

For those who need a singular, definitive piece of evidence to prove to others that the mainstream media in the United States is essentially a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, look no further than what was recently admitted by CBS‘ chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan:

“The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just in the U.S. But in this country, 85% of journalists are registered Democrats – that’s just a fact. No one is registering Democrat when they’re really a Republican. So, the facts are on the side that you just stated: most journalists are Left, or liberal, or Democrat, or whatever word you wanna give it…”

“How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all and there’s no gray. There’s no gray. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not — there’s something wrong.”

“So, for example, all the coverage on Trump all the time is negative…That’s distortion of the way things go in real life, because although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort, to be objective today.”

“We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that…” [Emphasis Mine]

“This is the problem that I have: There’s one Fox. There’s one Fox and there’s many, many, many more organizations on the Left…The problem is the weight of all these organizations on one side of the political spectrum. When you turn on your computer, or you walk past the TV, or you see a newspaper headline in the grocery store, if they’re all saying the same thing, the weight of that convinces you that it’s true. You don’t question it, because everyone is saying it. And unless you seek out Breitbart on your computer, you’re probably not even going to know what the other side is saying. Right?”

Next time an acquaintance plays coy over the media’s primary political inclinations or sarcastically questions why you believe the press in this country is another manifestation of Hitler’s Ministry of Propaganda, point them to Logan’s declarations. All that’s left is to watch their smug, snarky smile disappear when told that one of the media’s own blew the whistle on whole operation.
