Documents show media plotting to kill stories about the Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright connection.
(Daily Caller) It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign.”
“According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.”
“In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

JournoList proves media corruption. ”Liberalism is not taught in journalism school, it is expected.”
(North Star National) When news first broke that The Daily Caller had obtained documents and other such evidence asserting that a left-wing journalist web site had plotted to cover up controversial stories revolving around then-candidate Barack Obama’s pastor, as well as conspire to destroy the lives of anyone who opposes their agenda, most Americans probably shrugged it off realizing this is simply old news.
Not only is this kind of journalism bad for business, but more importantly dangerous for democracy, not because these so-called journalists harbor far-left views, but because they knowingly and unashamedly bury stories that will hurt public figures who share the same beliefs.
But for now we have to deal with the very real fact that American media may be completely corrupt to an unprecedented level.
Burying controversial stories in order to advance a political agenda doesn’t change the facts. The bad guys will always be the bad guys no matter how many times you sweep them under the rug.
In order to get a better picture of the exact level of hatred and disgust to which American journalists have descended, I find myself reflecting back on a very powerful statement a former colleague of mine once made.
“Liberalism is not taught in journalism school, it is expected.”
