Censorship by Mainstream Media Should Outrage Every American

The founding fathers of this country considered the press to be the key to keeping public servants in line with a bi-partisan approach. They never conceived that a free press would become one-sided and brazenly self-serving in their own political beliefs. The incredibly liberal agenda of the journalists in this country was on display at Hillary Clinton’s first press conference in 278 days on Thursday.

The stark facts around the Clinton Foundation and accusations of major corruption, plus the ongoing drip, drip of information concerning her private email servers and information from the FBI last Friday about Hillary having seven different phones, should have elicited many questions. None of these were even brought up.

This country is being sold down the river by what has been termed The Fourth Estate. That means they are a censor for the American people to report all the news and hand-select what they want you to hear and see. Hillary was never asked even one question about the scandals that inundate her campaign for president.

Not one.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, addressed reporters on the tarmac in White Plains, N.Y., on a podium in front of her airplane. That is what handlers often use to make it difficult for reporters to ask questions and easier for the candidate to feign misunderstanding. Ronald Reagan was a master of this type of situation. He would cup his ear and shake off questions.

Hillary Clinton 16 minute tarmac press conference.

The former Secretary of State was asked six questions over an incredibly brief 16 minutes about the tightening polls in the presidential race and whether she believed she was being treated differently in the race because she is a woman. That is termed softball questioning by blatantly liberal reporters letting this woman completely off the hook.

Did they learn this tactic in Journalism 101?

I can personally attest my journalism professors would have been horrified.

The incredibly biased questions included one about Donald Trump’s comments the night before on foreign policy. Both candidates appeared Wednesday night at a military and veterans forum broadcast on MSNBC, where Clinton was actually questioned about the private email server she used as secretary of State.

Why did they neglect that?

Again, MSNBC, home of the most biased and liberal talking heads, did better than the so-called journalists at the airport. Yes, the tarmac at the airport which was her first event with the normal trappings of a press conference in months.

Not only have we seen a doctor with a six-year show on CNN fired after he diagnosed Hillary’s appearance with special glasses at the sub-committee hearings last January, but other trained doctors are questioning her coughing spells that had one appearance delayed while she coughed for a full four minutes plus.

The American people are being fed talking points about her condition with her private doctor, who will not release her health issue to the general voting public. Worse than that, the free press hides the situation, the emails, the Clinton Foundation, Benghazi, on and on.

It’s not some Republican rumor-festering, it’s the stark facts. Doesn’t America deserve more than a bunch of Hillary-backing; Trump-bashing far left liberal thinking from the likes of MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC?

Its an absolute outrage.

And then there’s this:

Why won’t Hillary Clinton appear on the only network that actually provides the conservative point of view; Fox News? Isn’t she supposed to be addressing all the people? Why do the Democrats, including Obama, Biden, Clinton(s) and other liberals avoid the questions at Fox News? It has the most viewers on cable TV.

The media has been pressing Clinton to hold a full press conference to give reporters a chance to ask her about a host of issues. If it’s anything like the airport tarmac, why even bother? A four-year-old could ask the toned-down questions just as well. While she scrambles to the friendly confines of the liberal media, Trump is out there being interviewed by every single outlet that is pro-Hillary Clinton.

Trump is serving the American people versus the far left-wing, lobbyists, career politicians and thousands of Washington pencil-pushers who are scared to death of the man from the private sector. The man, who has actually met a payroll, hired thousands of American workers and built something.

Oh he’s crazy, the shouters yell, drowning out Trumps appearances.

Does America realize that the racist, bigot and warmonger slurs and the desperate attempts to shut down an American and his free speech is something to be gravely concerned about? Take a hard look at what is happening in this country and just who it is stifling your right to speak and be heard.

What are they so afraid of?
