The Reason Why No One Trusts The MSM Anymore … This Week & Meet the Press Discussing Van Jones Resignation and Attack Bloggers with Internet Disinformation


The following is exhibit 1 why the liberal MSM loses viewers and readership every day … BLOGS 1 , MSM 0.

The MSM is afraid, very afraid of the new media. When one feels the need to try and trash another because of the fantastic work they have done to expose the Left, you know that you have done your job and are considered a treat to their power and control. Welcome to the age of … The Internet Investigative Journalist!

So sorry MSM that we do not rely on you for our news with your liberal agenda as to what story you will or will not cover. You all have egg on your face today as the blogs

This weekend we were presented with two old guard Lame Steam media TV shows, “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and “Meet the Press both discussing the resignation of Obama’s Green Commie czar Van Jones. Both were prefect examples of why no one trusts the media anymore to get answers.

Welcome to the new age where the Internet Blogger is the new investigative journalist.

Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”  So much for answering the questions and so much for Stephanopoulos pressing the questions of the Van Jones resignation.

The question to Gibbs was does the President believe as Van Jones states in his resignation that he was the victim of a vicious smear campaign or does he believe that Jones’ actions and words merited resignation. Gibbs response, “well what Van Jones decided that the agenda of this President was bigger than any one individual.” Hmm … was that the question?  Although, Gibbs also said that Obama does not endorse Jones’ previous controversial comments, but he thanked him for his service.

In as much as “This Week” interview with Gibbs was lame and a softball, NBC’s “Meet the Press” was a disgusting display of journalistic jealousy, hypocrisy and bias.

If the Internet is an open sewer of untreated, unfiltered information, what is the MSM?

Every one is a target in this information age? Huh? You can be a target really fast. Wha? Not if you are a Lefty, Commie and the MSM decides to never cover a story like the Van Jones one. Full transcript HERE.

Let me understand this, the blogs are being chastised for properly vetting a commie truther from the White House? Something that Obama should have done in the first place and the MSM second. Welcome to liberal media bias, they are made because the blogosphere was right! Kudos, Gateway Pundit.

When everyone has access to YouTube everyone is a film maker
When everyone is a blogger, every one is a newspaper.
Tell your kids be careful … Every move they make is now a digital foot print. You are on Candid Camera.

Welcome to the new world. Dude, it’s called accountability. It is not a matter of not saying anything controversial. Its not a matter of not saying anything controversial. What it is .. if you do decide to say some thing or make a stand, you better be able to support your decision to the fullest. Not sign a 9–11 Truther statement and then claim that you did not read what you signed. It’s called if you decide to call people a$$holes for comic relief, then you lose the right to be a part of an administration that claimed it would surround itself with moderates, not communist loons.

The Internet is an open sewer of untreated, unfiltered information. It would appear that so is the liberal MSM.

Tom Brokaw dare say that you have to vet what’s on the Internet. Really, no kidding Tom. BTW Mr. Brokaw, you also have to vet what is in the MSM and in “Meet the Press”. He claims there is so much disinformation out there and that it is frightening. Are you referring to MSNBC? Or the White House?

While Tom Brokaw is on the topic of vetting information on the Internet, maybe Dick Gregory might have asked where Obama’s White House was in vetting Van Jones? Hmm! How about where was NBC, ABC, CBS, Washington Post, New York Times, Boston Globe … every MSM outlet in questioning Van Jones’ past. Not until Van Jones resigned did they cover the story. CNN wants us to believe that Obama did not order Van Jones to resign. It was his own decision, please! Van Jones was not ordered, he was politely asked to step under the bus.


It took the hard work and the perseverance of a Blogger like the Gateway Pundit  and others to find the truth. It took the work of those who cared to find the truth. I have said for years that journalism is dead and the only true investigative journalists are on the web.

If we had to wait for the MSM to cover this story and vet Van Jones, this guy would still be the Green czar and no one would have known of his past. One that, even Van Jones felt was too much of a distraction to Obama.

      The MSM pissed that they are no longer in control of censoring the news for their agenda.

      George Stephanopoulos and Chris Mathews do not report the news. They manufacture the news. Pro Obama, they will spin the news and protect the white house. I do not consider them journalists. Corporate Propaganda, and Media Manipulation is what they are all about.

    3. Steve Holloway on September 6th, 2009 3:44 pm

      Calling all commie czars that work at the White House to quit.

      The land of the free and we have commie’s working at the capital, now that’s unbelievable! Never did I think this could happen. Where is the outrage?

      And to thank Jones for a good job. How insane is that!!!

      HE’s a communist. The end

      Remember Dr. Orly Taitz court date is this Tuesday at 8:00am in CA. concerning O’s records.
      Please pray for her and Judge Carter.

      Lord please protect them and their families and let the truth come to light. In Jesus name Amen.

      If you’re going into politics, your past actions will be scrutiized. This happens to conservatives and liberals. It’s not smear, it’s politics and democracy – when the people for whom Obama and his advisors work, want to know they don’t have people in office whose agendas are extremely different from anything they want for themselves and their country. They want to know you have ethics, brains, morals, and a similar vision for this country. Thank goodness for bloggers and Fox or we probably wouldn’t know about the beliefs of people like Van Jones and others whom President Obama is surrounding himself with. Note to Michelle: We are not “raising the bar” for an African American. We do this with public officials of all races and religions. We’ve been doing it for a long time. Even before you and Valerie Jarrett worked for Mayor Daley. So please don’t call it “smear” or “racism”. I’m real tired of hearing that nonsense.

    5. LilPuma on September 6th, 2009 3:59 pm

      Greg the Mongoose: I forget the name of the FCC diversity advisor, but if you dig out his name, there’s a video of him and his comments about the media and Chavez. He wants to regulate the heck out of radio to suit his agenda.

      I am so glad Obama didn’t come out and say “I didn’t know” this time. I guess the video of Valerie Jarrett saying they’ve been following Van Jones since his work in Oakland took that option off the table. If he had, I feared I’d throw a brick at my TV and I really can’t afford a new one. Will Obama be getting a cash-for-oldTVs program going soon?

    6. LilPuma on September 6th, 2009 4:10 pm

      Van Jones wasn’t forced to resign?
      Chicago Politics 101: Roland Burris is appointed to Obama’s Senate seat by former Governor Rod Blagojevich. The Senate doesn’t want him. Then they take him. Then there’s accusations he lied and may be lose the Senate seat. Then there’s silence. Then Senator Burris announces he will not run for re-election. A good bet would be that Van Jones was “handled” in the same way.

      Great posting today! Don’t the MSM get it that if Obama thought that VJ did nothing wrong, he would (one would hope) defend him? It baffles me totally: does the MSM, leftists, et al. really believe that saying things like ‘whites poison blacks on purpose with pesticides’, that this administration should ‘give back all the wealth to people of color’, that blacks ‘never shoot up schools’ is just ok?

      Who on earth could believe that? Forget what he said about Republicans! I don’t care if he calls me names till the cows come home. It’s his communist, radical views that scare me and that is why I am glad he is gone.

      We need to not let up. The MSM is going to launch even meaner attacks on all of us who dare question this administration and we must be ready with facts and the rightness of our views. We must demand that Obama provide us answers on the radical Czars he has appointed.

      We must continue to question until we get answers and when he won’t provide that, we must not let up until they are gone from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

      We must stay strong and I am heartened by reading this great blog and reading all of the answers of the true patriots who post here. Thank you.

      When the MSM is caught with their pants down they attack those that expose them. lol

    9. Greg the Mongoose on September 6th, 2009 6:47 pm

      LilPuma FCC diversity adviser is trying to shut down the free press. His goal of a Hugo Chavez type of media. Will push the USA into anarchy.
      Obama’s attack on the press will be his Waterloo.

    10. Tracy on September 6th, 2009 8:39 pm

      Greg- please tell me that even the MSM will care if Obama tries to take the reins of the media! Or will they not care because they believe that it will only shut down conservative stations/broadcasts? Don’t they realize that this will impact them negatively, too, when Obama is out of power?? They can’t be that stupid! Somebody in the MSM has to still be a journalist but I’ll be damned if I can find one. What do you think? Thanks in advance.

    11. Greg the Mongoose on September 7th, 2009 12:56 am

      Tracy if MSM reports the news with no edits. They should be able to go up in the ratings. Example of the edits below.

      Good reporting below:

      Obama controled media below:

    12. Greg the Mongoose on September 7th, 2009 2:02 am

      Sorry Tracy,
      The FCC diversity adviser is going to vet the media for pro Obama news? Glenn Beck tops their hit list. Beck uncovered Van Jones. While all other media stuck their heads in the sand. The FCC will find away to stop Beck stay tuned.

    13. ANewGirl on September 7th, 2009 6:38 pm

      Beck cannot and should not be stopped. I for one, will keep tuning in!!!

      F the MSM, and extreme racists and bigots like Van Jones have no place in the President’s cabinet…so F him, too! What a tool that guy was, good riddance!
