Big Dan's Big News July 21, 2010


Keith Olbermann goes ballistic on Breitbart/FOX "news/rightwing media AND Obama...about the hoax Shirley Sherrod video pimped by FOX "news" to get her fired:

Andy Breitbart, Pathological Liar, Race-Baiter, Undone

Shirley Sherrod story demonstrates "scare white people" strategy of the Republican Party and FOX "news":

The next FOX "news"/Andrew Breitbart video hoax/swindle against BLACK PEOPLE: Shirley Sherrod! (see: the ACORN/"pimp" hoax video) FOX "news" is a racist GOP's NOT "news".

Sherrod smear was a "wake-up call" not to trust Fox News

Full video vindicates Sherrod, destroys Breitbart's accusations of racism

Breitbart's Sherrod narrative unravels

Now reopen Breitbart's ACORN fraud -- and get the story right. Sherrod's case parallels deceptions used in that other big smear -- and offers a chance to restore lost standards

"White farmer" Spooner: Sherrod smearers "don't know what they're talking about," Sherrod did "her level best" to help

And the bait was taken once again...but this time it was caught in time, unlike the Democrats voting for The Defund ACORN Act:

FOX "news" other ongoing attack against BLACK PEOPLE: the FAKE Black Panther story:

REPORT: Fox News has hyped phony New Black Panthers scandal at least 95 times

Bipartisan agreement: Fox-hyped New Black Panthers case is a phony scandal

And how many times have I posted this below? I'd say about 50 times since this blog started. Make it 51:

(Note: can I do a little bragging? I...AM...ALWAYS...RIGHT!!!!!!! Sooner or later, YOU will agree with ME!!!)

The Republican Noise Machine

David Brock, the reformed conservative noise-maker, on how the Right has sabotaged journalism, democracy, and truth.

As a young journalist in the 1990s, David Brock was a key cog the Republican noise machine. Writing for the American Spectator, a conservative magazine funded by billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, Brock gained fame for his attack pieces on Anita Hill and President Bill Clinton. Then, in 2002, Brock came clean. In his memoir, Blinded by the Right, Brock admitted that his work was based on lies and distortion, and part of a coordinated smear campaign funded by wealthy right wing groups to discredit Clinton and confuse the public.

Since then, Brock has continued to expose the conservative media onslaught. In his newest book, The Republican Noise Machine, Brock documents how right-wing groups pressure the media and spread misinformation to the public. It's easy to see how this is done.

Fringe conspiracies and stories will be kept alive by outlets like Rush Limbaugh, the Washington Times, and the Drudge Report, until they finally break into the mainstream media.

Media groups like Brent Bozell's Media Research Center have spent 30 years convincing the public that the media is, in fact, liberal. As Brock says, it's all a sham: "I have seen, and I know firsthand, indeed from my own pen, how the organized Right has sabotaged not only journalism but also democracy and truth."
