I’ve been saying that for years.
This is to be applauded. We never want a situation where the media becomes lapdogs to anyone singular party. That’s not to say that they shouldn’t be grounded in the precepts that founded that great society, laid down by the Founding Fathers, individual liberty, safeguarding of property rights and limited government.
NOTE: The dig at Bush flying over hurricane Katrina disaster area was a false analogy. That incident was a media inspired hit job, he would have been raked across the coals either way. If Bush would have walked the grounds of the disaster, they would have said he had done so at the expense of helping others desperately in need, ”he should have just flown over the area instead of taking up needed resources”. Bush did so at the request of the authorities on the ground, as to not draw away from any resources needed to help struggling survivors.
Pat Caddell Says: Media Have Become an “Enemy of the American people”
In recent remarks to an AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
