False Reporting Is Not News
There is one thing we can learn from liberals, and that is tenacity. The fact that they are tenacious pursuant to all of the wrong things notwithstanding. That said, they are not easily discouraged (I’ll get to the reason for that momentarily). A handful of liberals can emulate the noise of vast numbers. And with the help of the media the noise of the few is portrayed as the beliefs of the many. The reality is that nothing could be further from the truth.
Permit me to digress for the moment. As I have said many times, Martin Luther King didn’t end Jim Crow, as such. He brought unavoidable and undeniable awareness to the evil injustice of Jim Crow, and people of good conscience stood up and helped him shoulder the load thus ending said evil. Another example of righteous tenacity is Phyllis Schlafly. She fought three presidential administrations, the courts, the media, special interest groups, and a liberal women’s movement committed to the passage of a deplorable heterodoxy called the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The ERA’s title sounded innocuous enough, but in truth it was legislation from hell, not unlike Obama’s healthcare plan.
Families today owe Phyllis Schlafly a tremendous debt of gratitude because she refused to be intimidated, and she refused to go away. We owe a great debt to both her and Dr. King because they refused to be bullied into silence.
Our allies are one another. Our allies are not the Congress and/or it’s members. In the last two weeks alone, two Congressional members have shown their true colors, said being Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. Pat Toomey, whom we believed to be trustworthy, turned out to be just another opportunistic politician as he tried to enact onerous legislation that would have significantly and adversely impacted our Second Amendment rights.
What I’m talking about is people of good conscience standing up to do and defend what is right.
Referencing my opening remarks above, liberal hate-mongers and race-mongers give the appearance of not being discouraged because in the last 30 years persons of good conscience have become quick to concede.
We must stand up and fight for truth. We need to approach every battle with the mindset that we will never, ever give up.
Mark Ivancic, the managing editor of the Bradford Era newspaper and the publisher John Satterwhite are under the impression that they can ignore Mark’s infringement on my First Amendment rights and his providing self created opinion to the Bradford community because you the people will quickly tire and go away. Following are examples of recent history and examples of why we must demand truth from news and information sources.
The Iraq bureau chief for CNN during the Saddam Hussein reign was Eason Jordan. He admitted to lying and intentionally misleading the world, not just the U.S. audience, so that CNN could benefit by having a news bureau there.
NBC was forced to admit that they had purposely edited the 911 call the night George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Dan Rather was ultimately forced to resign after being caught using false documents in an attempt to smear President George W. Bush. The New York Times has had notable writers and editors found to be guilty of manufacturing and coloring the news so as to present biased content.
I could go on and on, but here is my point. We now have another bigoted liberal in charge of a news room at a heretofore responsible newspaper that is now being pulled down into the sewer of disrespect and false reporting. As I have reported, Ivancic has changed my copyrighted, syndicated material to imply what I did not intend. And allegedly he is changing the content of other writer’s copyrighted, syndicated material, as well.
Perhaps it’s pride that is preventing the publisher from admitting that he made a mistake in hiring Ivancic — but whatever his reasons he is now complicit in letting Ivancic destroy a newspaper that until January of this year was among the most trusted and honest I have personally ever enjoyed an association with.
Unless we stand up to this kind of dishonest reporting there will come a time when all reporting will be suspect. The community of Bradford needs to know that people of good conscience stand with them in their struggle against a bete noire whose somatology appears traceable to the darkest regions of Dante’s Inferno.
I’ve been threatened with a lawsuit by Ivancic because I called him a bigot — he is a bigot and in the truest sense of the word.
We as people of good conscience must address this injustice and help prevent the destruction of what has been up until now a trusted source of news and information for that region of Pennsylvania. It is my experience that small town newspapers are one of the last bastions for a truthful presentation of news and information. We cannot afford to stand by and confirm to Ivancic and the publisher that all they have to do is wait, and we will go away. Which will allow Ivancic to fully destroy this reliable news source.
For people like Ivancic truth is a game, but for us it is the cornerstone of America.
