Democrat Pat Caddell – Mainstream media threatens the country
Pat Caddell is a rarity. He is an honest Democrat. He isn’t a socialist or communist like 95%+ of the Democrat party is today. He was the pollster for Jimmy Carter way back in the 1970′s. Caddell mise well leave the Democrat party after writing this article because he will probably be overwhelmed with death threats, smears, and attacks on his family. Caddell is growing almost as frustrated with the leftist media bias as conservatives are. He gave a speech on September 21 that was delivered at Accuracy in Media’s Conference: Obamanation: A Day of Truth. He spoke about how the corrupt media is a threat the the future of this country, At least he realizes it. The other Democrats/Liberals at Fox News continue to be-clown themselves ignoring this fact. Good for you Mr. Caddell!
But all I want to conclude to this is that we face a fundamental danger here. The fundamental danger is this: I talked about the defense of the First Amendment. The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and decide that they will now become active participants, that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.
And it is a threat to the very future of this country if we allow this stuff to go on. We have crossed a whole new and frightening slide on the slippery slope this last two weeks, and it needs to be talked about.
