The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. Ephesians 4:29 KJV
How dare FOX News think they are the gatekeepers of who we can and cannot vote for? They are supposed to be an objective observer and reporter of the news and not a judge or jury. They have so lost track of their jobs this election cycle and have become by far the most corrupt news organization in America.
They and their ongoing feud with Donald Trump has become an obsession with them. Unless you agree with them that Trump has no business in the race then they have become unwatchable. Their so called analysts George Will, Brit Hume, Charles Krauthammer, Karl Rove, Megyn Kelly and everyone except Bill OReilly and Hannity have made it their missions to let America know to not support Trump and he is their ongoing joke.
The job of a news organization is to gather, put together a story and then report that story so people can understand and digest what is happening in the world. They are not supposed to comment or tell people what to think on that story with their own personal bias and are required to leave their bias out. This is the most critical part of reporting since this is where people build trust in the organization to report fairly and without their own bias and why so many networks have failed miserably both ethically and financially.
News analysis takes it to an even higher level since people will expect someone who is going to analyze the news must be even more truthful than a reporter for fear of bending the story to the analyzers bias. This is where FOX News has completely corrupted their programming; they have declared war on Trump and have decided he must not be President. No matter how they personally feel about a candidate, it is not their job or job description to use their power for or against a candidate.
This entire situation started with the first debate when FOX chose three liberal show hosts to moderate the debate. These hosts Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly were hinting they had some questions which would stump the candidates and would be a debate nobody would forget. Again, it is not up to the moderator to decide who is or is not worthy of being President it is their job to allow the candidates to express their ideas and goals for the job they are attempting to earn. The moderator is to represent the average voter and ask questions the voter would be wondering about and in this case a Republican voter.
The FOX moderators decided rather than ask questions the viewers were interested they were going to grill the candidates like a prosecutor and destroy as many as they could. Their main target of course was Trump with the War on Women question from a feud with Rosie ODonnell years earlier who is the most outspoken liberal in the city as if she represented all women or Trumps opinion of women. This set the tone for FOX for this entire election season and has become a feud they cannot resolve and is destroying their network.
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is the story of this election. For a non politician to come into this forum and relate to America is the story of the year. It is FOXs responsibility to cover this story and leave their personal bias out of it. It is not for them to be the gatekeepers of the castle for a candidate only to report it. If they cannot do that, then they are not reporters but activists and should be required to recuse themselves from the story.
Unfortunately for FOX this fight may have become too personal and they are unable to disengage their egos and personal dislike enough to take the step required. Donald Trump is not without fault in this war although he is not required to have the same objectivity as a news organization. When he is critical and calls out analysts he is allowed to and especially if he feels they are unfair as has been the case. The debate was not a fair debate, but an attempt to destroy his and others campaigns which is not what people tuned in to watch, they wanted to have some answers to this countrys massive problems, not whether Trump called Rosy fat or not.
Any blogger can Google those types of attacks in ten seconds, but America wanted to know how you would fix the border, the economy, racism and dangers Americans are facing every day. His criticism of the debate was valid and FOX dismissed it as a personal attack rather than asking themselves how they could make it or themselves better. Their Facebook was filled with comments reflecting the same criticism that they crossed the line and became judges rather than journalists and their viewers were offended yet they paid no mind and doubled down.
Now FOX is every bit as corrupt as ABDNCBS and every other network in the corridor and they do not understand what that means. They are a commodity just like oil and soybeans. They sell their product every day to the consumers only their commodity is not something you need or have to buy. Their commodity is information and their marketplace is extremely competitive with lots of places to buy that information for free. Since it is free then they have to bring customers in by either using gimmicks like sex or quality information. In the past they have used a combination of both by having beautiful women with short skirts and quality unbiased reporting.
Unbiased reporting and not calling conservatives names or dismissing conservative ideas is what built their audience and made their commodity superior to the rest of the media marketplace to their viewers. This is how they became the leading cable news network and why their viewers felt comfortable and safe watching their reports. This value to Conservative viewers set their information distribution commodity apart from the competition. They have thrown all of that overboard because they got into a spat and decided they have to destroy a candidate.
FOX News has become a shell of what it used to be. Sure they still have higher ratings than the rest of the cable news networks since there is nowhere else for viewers to go. You can bet the Trump viewers are either holding their noses or turning them off since they do not want to be insulted 24 hours a day by a bunch of corrupt journalists who think snarky is analysis.
What they do not seem to realize is this will become a steady decay and people will wonder if their news is valid or the reporter is bringing his personal bias to this story too and the value of that information diminishes more and more. We are watching before our eyes the absolute destruction of a network many have trusted for years crumble before our eyes. Just like America is at a moral and financial crossroad, so are many of the reporters of it.
Pray America is waking
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
The Pope is in Town, and the MSM is up in arms because Trump will not proclaim Barry Soetoro is a Christian!
Why is it Donald Trump’s obligation to tell everybody who Barack Obama is? Polling shows people believe Obama is a Muslim, and believe Obama was not born in Hawaii!
Trump was at an Iowa Faith forum. Trump demonstrated how a Man presents his bonafides!
All eyes were on Trump with respect to MSM DEMANDS Trump proclaim Barry Soetoro a Christian.
Well, Trump hits the stage and reminds everyone he has been declaring he is a Christian, that he is just like the Evangelicals.
Trump shows off his personal Bible, with an inscription from his Mom (demonstrating he had the bible for YEARS, and the Bible was not purchased earlier that day)
Trump shows everyone a photo from his Catholic Sacrament of Confirmation. This normally happens in your early to mid teens.
Barry Soetoro, there is the template on how a Man backs up his words.
Barry, got a decades old personal Bible? Got any pictures from your Confirmation?
While you are digging up/manufacturing forgeries, why don’t you release something from your Baptism or Confirmation! Why not release your College records!
CNN hammered Trump non stop Friday early evening.
I hope Trump brings his Bible and Confirmation photo to his Sunday CNN appearance. When CNN demands Trump defend Obama, Trump should tell stories of his preparation for and day of Confirmation. Then,ask if they have any questions on how to Make America Great Again.
Maybe, the Pope and Barry can share fond memories of their respective preparations for and day of Confirmation
Kasich on 2, Cruz 0.
At least the LSM doesn't WANT HIM to be, but Americans do!!
I see where the propaganda pit bulls are out smearing Americans, and in one case Catholics.
Per Bray’s comments, the question is who will watch the Sunday indoctrination?
Is Ted Cruz hiding from the Sunday Talk Shows or are the Sunday Talk Shows hiding from Ted Cruz?
That is, as they say, the question. I’m betting it is the latter.
I hope someone watches it; not to believe or fawn over it, but to report what they’re saying; the questions they’re asking; the responses.
Consider it intelligence work, like learning more about your enemy.
Now, not everyone here does this—only a select few—and then I award them Reporter Badges as they report back to the rest of us, whom then discuss it, analysis it, and then find the patterns and memes.
FReepers are better at journalism then the driveby journ-0-lists!!!
Knowing this pope is a marxist, we’ll hear our dear leader more and more say, “the pope said this and that”, “I agree with what the pope said”...he’ll become the “safe” jerimiah wright”...dear leader’s new spiritual adviser.
I’m SURE of it now. They do not want him on; he speaks too well.
Propaganda isn’t just what is said, but controlling WHO gets to say it.
Ted says it too well, so they decide he too dangerous to let speak at all.
Thank you Alas Babylon! for today’s thread, and all of the thread you post.
TODAY is a big day... Is this the 1st appearance by Hillary?
Agree. My FOX viewing is way down since that debate.
Since declaring her candidacy, maybe.
Still, I doubt she just “appears” like they expect a Republican to. Most likely there was a lot of negotiation, wanting to see the questions first, controlling the environment, selecting a particular interviewer, etc., etc.
Since things do not seem to have improved for Hillary, she must sense something has gotten worse, for her to show up...
That seems reasonable. I just think this mean be a hint that something big is going to happen in, or to, her campaign. Perhaps Biden? Or she knows someone else will plead the Fifth?
Will any of the several MSM "news" shows even discuss one time today
that the Moslem Obama, and his complicit, submissive GOP
are revealed AGAIN (as with Benghazi and ISIS)
to have aided al Qaeda - murderers of Americans
and architects of the 911 Atrocities.
I think not.
