“Some people think that the mainstream media are covering the Republican controlled state government in Raleigh based on news judgment or attempts at good journalism. It simply isn’t true. The mainstream media are just following the well-thought-out and well-defined plan of liberal organizations outlined in a memo, many of them heavily funded by grants from the government as well as from left-leaning foundations.”…John Hammer, Rhino Times
The Rhino Times and other independent news sources, many of which are on the internet, play a crucial role in counteracting the lies and misinformation from the mainstream media.
Here is an excellent example from the resurrected Rhino Times October 3, 2013.
From the editor John Hammer.
“Media Got The Memo”
“The news out of Raleigh since the Republicans took over control of the government this year has a definite slant.
Some people think that the mainstream media are covering the Republican controlled state government in Raleigh based on news judgment or attempts at good journalism. It simply isn’t true. The mainstream media are just following the well-thought-out and well-defined plan of liberal organizations outlined in a memo, many of them heavily funded by grants from the government as well as from left-leaning foundations.
The media has the memo that outlines the plan, which you might think would embarrass them into not being obvious vassals of left-wing organizations, but you would be wrong. Instead they, for the most part, ignored mentioning the talking points that gave them their marching orders, but WRAL News posted the plan on its website back in February, so it’s no secret.
The part that was kept secret is that the mainstream media didn’t choose to inform the general public that the path they were following was laid out not by newspaper editors or television producers, but by an organization of liberal activists. As one might suspect this has led to reporting that can at best be called biased and, according to many on the right, it is downright dishonest.
It is impossible to believe that it is a coincidence that the liberals who make up the majority of the mainstream media just happened to be following the liberal plan nearly to the letter.
A great example are the Moral Mondays in Raleigh during the North Carolina legislative session that were presented by the mainstream media as a grassroots movement of people who were so opposed to what the Republican majority was doing that they couldn’t stop themselves from going to Raleigh for spontaneous protests.
As the conservative think tank the Civitas Institute has reported, the president of the North Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) agreed that the Moral Mondays were not “spontaneous action.” He attributed the protests that received front page coverage week after week in the mainstream media as the result of a meeting of a coalition of liberal groups called Historic Thousands on Jones Street that coordinated the events.
The mainstream media week after week ignored the organization and presented the demonstrations as the result of people simply being drawn to Raleigh to protest.
The majority of the voters of North Carolina indicated they were in favor of the turn to the right that the legislature took because they went to the polls in 2012 and not only elected a Republican governor but large Republican majorities in both the state House and state Senate.
After the Republicans took over, the mainstream media acted shocked that the Republicans did much of what they said they would do when they were out campaigning. Some conservatives complained that the Republicans didn’t do enough, but what they did accomplish in Raleigh in one term is remarkable.
The NAACP acted like they were being left out of the legislative process because of race. The truth is that the NAACP long ago decided to tie itself to the Democratic Party. While the Democrats were in power it gave the NAACP an inordinate amount of power. The Democrats didn’t have the votes to pass partisan legislation without the support of the NAACP, and a big chunk of Democrats couldn’t win an election if they were opposed by the NAACP. As long as the Democrats were in power it made good political sense and gave the NAACP more power than their numbers would warrant.
The downside of that strategy was that the NAACP politically became an organization that was not devoted to the advancement of blacks, as the name suggests, but devoted to the advancement of Democrats. Time after time the NAACP supported white Democratic candidates over black Republicans. If the NAACP were really in favor of the advancement of minorities it would support good minority candidates regardless of party, but that is not what the NAACP chose to do, and at the time the NAACP made that decision it made political sense. Unfortunately for the NAACP leadership, they didn’t foresee the Republican juggernaut coming.
So when the Republicans took over the state government with big majorities in both houses and a Republican governor, it left the NAACP and other Democratic organizations out in the cold, because they were Democrats not because of race.
Why should the Republicans listen to the NAACP? They were all elected despite fierce opposition at every turn from the NAACP. It’s just politics.
But the mainstream media didn’t report that because the mainstream media, like the NAACP, had long ago aligned itself with liberal ideology and the Democratic Party.
It’s a good story that Moral Mondays were created by a statewide meeting of liberal organizations, not some grassroots effort, but the mainstream media chose to ignore that fact, and week after week reported on the protests and arrests as if it was what it was billed to be – a group of people who went to Raleigh because they were so upset with the Republican actions.
The plan by liberal organizations to cause as many problems for the Republicans in Raleigh as possible is no secret. It was posted on the website of WRAL in February, but it has largely been ignored by the mainstream media.”
