Coordinated Media Attacks? by Ed Evans

Is George Soros now in charge of America's newsrooms?

When I was in the military, we knew that when you saw coordinated attacks snaking in from different quarters, you could look for a coordinator. Find the coordinator and you cut the head off the snake.

Even before the recent budget action by Congress and the President, the coordinated attack began to appear comparing Tea Party people and the GOP with terrorists. Two columnists from the New York Times have now launched a full frontal assault. New York Times Joe Nocera and columnist Nicholas Kristof didn't even try to soft-pedal their attacks. Nocera outright described Tea Party Republicans as "terrorists" wearing "suicide vests" even as the debt ceiling issue was still being debated.

Kristoff capped off the terrorist labeling by claiming they constituted a “national security threat. … from our own domestic extremists.”

Follow along here as Nocera uses his best writing talents to paint conservatives as terrorists: "“These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people. Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took.” Well done, isn't it?

Nocera and Kristoff are not alone in this media imagte management and manipulation, this has all the marks of a coordinated attack.

All thought the debt ceiling debates, liberal journalists have been referring to conservatives and Tea Party Republicans with terms like the Hezabollah faction, terrorists, traitors, and even hostage takers, as a very obvious effort to manipulate public opinion and marginalize conservative facts.

No less than the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, joined in, saying conservatives were terrorists for fighting for a balanced budget. Do you see that the Vice President was putting patriotic Americans up there alongside bloodlust killers of woman and children?

On MSNBC, the embarrassingly partisan Chris Matthews said that the GOP had become "the Wahabis of the American government, willing to risk bringing down the whole country in the service of their anti-tax ideology."

If not George Soros, who? It is true the liberals running our newsrooms exhibit the need to uproot and reshape today's America, reshaping it in the progressive image, but only a George Soros, owning as much of the news media as he does, with that kind of financial influence, would be in a probable position to launch and coordinate such attacks.

The issues of freedom and individual liberty at the core of the free market system, and the necessity of limited government in this nation, are of such importance that this type of news media bias and character assassination cannot be allowed to flourish without demanding comment. And the demand must be that it stop. It will only stop at the demand of We the People, as individuals speaking out against it in letters, telephone calls, letters to the editor, and online comments through the social media. Wherever such scurrilous attacks occur, the word must be loud and clear: "No more!" We the People still have that power, so far. But the insidious nature of such attacks on patriotic Americans, with outside interest manipulating our own news media is eating away at the body of freedom like a rotting disease, and must be stopped.

This ethical and moral violence is not the American way. This is not what our Founding Fathers worked to set into motion. This is not what patriotic Americans fought and died for. This is not what we wish to pass on to tomorrows generation of free Americans. May God continue to bless America.
