Comments on: Much smoke, few flames for right-wing press critics http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2011/10/25/much-smoke-few-flames-for-right-wing-press-critics/ Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:54:39 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: teacherken http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2011/10/25/much-smoke-few-flames-for-right-wing-press-critics/#comment-351 Tue, 15 Nov 2011 23:46:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/?p=221#comment-351 gee, are they going to complain about opinion “journalist” Sean Hannity appearing at rallies on behalf of Republican candidates?

I thought not.

IOKIYAR, right?

BTW, calling Retracto the Correction Alpaca!, James just outed the NYT helping the Occupied movement, guess you’ll be updating this article now eh? Watching the 1% elite of journalists getting their comeuppance is very entertaining. So all we have to do to get NPR in serious trouble is make them have to report their advertising revenues as taxable income? You mean, treat them like a tv network and all of their spouses will have to look for work with the Obama campaign? LOL!

On the basis of what information did NPR decide not to send a reporter to report on OWS/to interview the spokesperson for OWS?

It’s possible, as Shafer would, to liken Simeone to the local TV reporter/weekend anchor who, a half-eaten Knockwurst in her hand, reports “live” from the city’s annual Ethnic Festival. But the ethnic festival is for the city’s benefit, and the spokesperson for the festival said exactly this, when she signed for the permit.

If you talk about the right wing fanatics as legitimate news, you increase their credibility.
These are people who don’t want America to be a nation of laws. Don’t want a constitution that guarantee’s liberty for all. They want a nation built upon religious right principles, that only has rights for the rich – sort of like the old banana-republics of South America. They don’t want a two-party system, they want a one-party system… Theirs… They don’t want the rule of law, they want their religious law to be the law of the land. They want the return of prohibition (which first brought us the Mafia), they want one man rule…. They don’t support democracy at all…. When will Americans wake up to this ? ? I hope they do before its too late…..

They have their delusional base who believes every lie they purport, and no one else gives them one iota of respect and shouldn’t.

Nicely written piece Jack. O’Keefe is such a hypocrite, his expose exposed only himself. I’ve come to believe that “Right Wing Journalism” is an oxymoron.
