The Press and Paula Deen
I think that if anything exemplifies the overt prejudice and determination
of the American media to report only the news that suits their social
and political interests and concept of what does and does not fit their
agenda, it's the totally overblown coverage of something Paula Deen
said 20 years ago, and some party she planned that she wanted to resemble
a plantation scene featuring black male waiters in period dress.
If Hollywood plans a movie featuring black waiters in a plantation scene
or portray women as prostitutes or cast minorities in caricature roles
does the media get upset and start calling the movie moguls racists?
Is there any grown person who could truthfully declare under oath that
they have never uttered something that someone might find personally
who is without sin cast the first stone."
Do the twenty-year-old words of a lady with a television cooking show
trump the lie an Attorney General told Congress, or officials at the
IRS usurping the rights of the American public and pleading the fifth
amendment when confronted about it or the hiding of the facts surrounding
the murder of four Americans at a Consulate in Libya or the incredibly
shabby image of a president taking a one hundred million dollar vacation
in this economy while closing down tours of the White House or the NSA
invasion on the privacy of millions of unsuspecting citizens?
I think not, and yet these and other stories of the utmost importance
were either ignored or given a back seat to the Paula Deen story which,
when taken in context with the high level scandals, Putin's snubbing
of an American president, the potentially explosive situations in so
much of the world the story was certainly not newsworthy enough to be
featured five nights in a row on network news.
Wouldn't a week-long investigation into the life of Lois Lerner, the
things she's done and the reason she's pleading the fifth be more meaningful
to the American people?
What about what's going on in Israel? The media has been strangely quiet
on that front lately, is there nothing worth reporting in that volatile
part of the world?
How about the coming catastrophic tidal wave the effect of Obamacare
is going to have on America, is there nothing worth questioning in the
over 30,000 pages of regulations?
How about the fact that due to federal over regulation it's nearly impossible
to live in the U.S. without breaking some law?
How about the Christian pastor who is being held in one of the worst
hell hole prisons in the world in Iran for nothing more than sharing
How about a whole way of life that's being destroyed in West Virginia
by the president's war on coal?
I think you get the picture.
No wonder the mainstream media has fallen so far in the trust of the
Why is the Paula
Deen story worth so much airtime if not to take attention off the truly
important issue, the life changing things that really affect the lives
The news is not about news anymore. It's about protecting some people,
destroying others and shoving a socialist agenda down the collective
throats of America.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
