It’s 4:30 a.m. and I’m laughing so hard I barely can see my computer screen. Do yourself a favor and click on the Freeper link below and scroll down to view priceless, photo shopped images of Brian Williams, NBC “news” anchor, currently suspended without pay for six months for telling lies. (1) From putting his arm around the Virgin Mother in a Bethlehem stable to riding shotgun with OJ on the LA Freeway and smiling with a dream-like gaze as he listens to Dr. Martin Luther King, these images of Williams are a perfect representation of the contrivances witnessed evening after evening on the Nightly News. BTW, I heard somewhere that the guy was paid $13 MILLION/year to read someone else’s version of the news from a teleprompter for only SEVENTEEN minutes each night during a 30 minute broadcast!
Standing to the right of intrepid Marines, Williams has his right hand in his pocket, his left by his side and although not assisting the warriors, there he is on the scene, “reporting” the raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima! Standing slightly behind Abraham Lincoln in front of a Civil War tent and mic at the ready while the Founders signed the Declaration of Independence, Brian Williams was there, yes even at America’s birth. Sitting next to Churchill, legs akimbo, sitting behind Mav at a Top Gun movie set briefing, Williams was there, ready to answer—or possibly direct–Tom Cruise. “I got the need,” Mav yells, and Brian reports, “I’d finish his sentence, we were so close back then.”
But far and away, the split screen cartoon of Williams to the left, Hillary to the right, takes the proverbial cake for the dead-on depiction of the hypocrisy, the cant, the inveterate hype, hate, and hell to which our Mainstream Media have devolved. From Hillary saying she was named after Sir Edmund to Williams’ claim of having seen a dead body floating before his very eyes in a floodless part of Katrina-battered New Orleans, these bubble parodies of American celebrities symbolize more than anything else the sweetheart deal struck between America’s media and the Democrat political machine. Each is an inveterate phony that lies, equivocates and plays us for fools. “My helicopter got shot down in Iraq!” Williams tells Hillary. And without missing a beat, “I was under sniper fire in Bosnia,” claims Clinton. And besides, “My daughter was in the WTC on 9/11.” Of course Williams doesn’t “misremember” where he allegedly was on 9/11 because he looks, in simulation, directly into the camera from a WTC balcony, fearless in the face of a hijacked plane coming straight for him!
And there is the ubiquitous Williams standing next to Amelia Earhart, resplendent in 1930’s aviator attire, scarf pulled and twirling about his neck, the long lost female flyer simply standing by her aircraft. And it’s Williams again, arms raised on high, “celebrating” his successful “landing” of the US Airways real Sully plane. It’s Williams, next to the American Sniper; Williams, posing with the crew of the Enola Gay; Williams with LBJ as he consoles the grieving First Lady Jackie, and Williams behind Lady Bird. Really?
More and more the average American can assess the reality of how we are manipulated, massaged, worked over and fed unlimited BS by our government-media-entertainment-political complex. And we can thank the internet both for our education and our ability to educate others. That a single poster took the time to assemble these images and put them up on a thread about the Brian Williams debacle is priceless. Listen, you idiots, you media idiocracy, you fakey, touchy-feely types, you aren’t fooling us, not one bit. We’ve had your number for years and we just turned you off, tuned you out. You now are irrelevant.
Perhaps I best can bring home how dangerous this combine is by telling an anecdote in turn told to me by my very reliable source. I had posted a letter in a print outlet, decrying their editorial policy of endorsing a candidate on their editorial page while suppressing the negatives of this same candidate throughout the rest of the paper. They bashed their boy’s opponent, covering in detail in their news section all of the “wrong doing” for which he was ostensibly responsible. Keep in mind, voters never learned about the offenses, political shenanigans or misdeeds of the print outlet’s golden boy. Their guy, of course, gets elected.
Well, when one of this outlet’s columnists was running his mouth on a local radio talk program, my source tells me our other city hall source called in live to ask this journo if, in fact, this is what his newspaper does. Allegedly, he replied “Yes.” This outlet’s columnist actually admitted on air to jimmy-rigging elections by using their power of the press! Whether or not this call-in Q&A happened, I don’t know. I didn’t hear it first-hand. But I trust my second hand sources more than I trust an industry in which I received my lifelong credentials. Fake, sham, smoke & mirrors, bald-faced lies, omitting news the public should be told, journalism bobs and weaves around the news more and more as the industry devolves into money talks/BS walks, agenda driven reporting and partisan coverage. Reporters are becoming as corrupt as the people they cover. How I am pained when I recall my 1950′s Journalism professor telling his students that, “THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE TRUTH.” Think again, prof.
