On February 16th, Rage Against the Media protested against CNN’s inherent dishonesty in pretending to report the news.
Their agenda drives their decisions about what not to cover for the American people – those KEY TOPICS such as Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, the lack of a budget out of Harry Reid’s Senate, the waste of our money from the “stimulus,” Obama’s lies about sequestration, and so on! And they vilify anything and anyone counter to their agenda – most recently, for example, their obsessive focus on Marco Rubio’s drink of water rather than considering even for a moment the substance of what he said. Remember, too, Piers Morgan’s dismissiveness of our “little book,” the Constitution of the United States of America.
This kind of propagandizing is particularly dangerous in the case of CNN because they had been the “go-to” channel when there was major breaking news. They had a certain credibility in a crisis that even the others didn’t, and that they abuse this trust is especially dangerous and damaging to the nation.
Our signs addressed our sense of betrayal by the media – our anger that they support the powerful by lying to the people. Without an independent Fourth Estate, a free nation cannot stand – and we are there to remind CNN of their duty to us, and to show those driving by that WE ARE SICK OF THE LIES. And the countless honks and thumbs- up were clear indicators that WE ARE NOT ALONE in our RAGE and feelings of betrayal.
