The Real Culprit
by Dr. M. Sidney Wallace
Over half of the population holds the opinion that the current
occupant of the White House is as bad as Joseph Stalin reincarnated and the largest minority thinks he
is the Messiah. A large part of the population believes that half of
the justices of the Supreme Court are communist and another part thinks
the others are doddering old fools. The majority of the population
thinks that members of Congress are, at best, incompetent yet these same
people continually reelect their representative back to Congress. The
majority of the population thinks that Senators are nothing but
congressman with seniority or fancier offices. That they spend their
days in long leisurely breakfast, followed by elegant lunch meetings,
followed by late night dining at wine tasting events. The public at
large think that lobbyists roam the halls of congress and the government
bureaucracy passing out bags of money to unsuspecting individuals
eagerly looking for a quick route to personal wealth.
This writer can agree the current occupant of the White House is
completely incompetent and his job performance is a disgrace; however,
the other candidate in the 2008 election would have been just as
ineffective. The last two justices added to the supreme court should
have been rejected because of gross political prejudice on their part.
The current congress is unable to get anything accomplished not for not
trying, but because of ignorance of the public on the complete idiocy of
Who is the real culprit? The public press.
For this essay I consider the public press to be made up of reporters and journalists. Let's look at each one individually.
A journalist collects just enough information to support his or her
opinion and then provides their account of the events. Depending on
the factual information the journalist decides to use the essay may, or
may not, bear any resemblance to the truth. Most journalists start out
as reporters where they learn how to find basic facts and then write a
coherent report. Along the way they start thinking that it is their job
to make things better and they start to write articles and columns
advocating a specific point of view or candidate because the feel that
they know what is best for their readers.
On the other hand, a reporter gathers facts and information on a
subject and then provides a report on the facts of the issue. They
report all of the facts as they find them without a specific point of
view. They take no opinion on their output product. Their readers are
allowed to make their own decisions based on the facts of the issue.
The winner of the 2008 presidential election had virtually all of
liberal, elitist journalist on his side. These journalists simply
generated so much obfuscation that they completely covered up all of the
factual reports of their candidate. In the upcoming 2012 presidential
elections the elite national journalist are once again covering up for
the traitorous actions of the current president. This one man single
handedly allowed 4 Americans to be murdered and did absolutely nothing
to help. Now the national television and print media are covering his
Benghazi incompetence just so he can remain in office and continue his
destruction of American society and conversion to a socialistic form of
The United States was founded with the concept of a "free press."
The current national press is no longer free, they are a captive of
their ideology. As a citizen of the United States voters have a
responsibility to search out the facts on candidates and then vote their
conscious on who will be best for the nation in the long run. When you
approach your decision on this election please gather facts and not
opinions as to which candidate will serve the interest of the nation
best. The choice is very simple. Return to a government that has proven
over the past 200 years to improve the quality of life for all, or
establish a new type of government that has always proven to fail whenever it has been tried.
