The Daily Caller Founder Demonstrates How Media Lies
As President Obama announced a new immigration policy in the Rose Garden today, a Daily Caller reporter, Neil Munro, rudely cut him off, burdening the President with the task of defending his right to complete the announcement, uninterrupted.
Munro's breach of decorum was met by his employers with a tweet that it made them "proud," and the Editor-In-Chief, Tucker Carlson, promised to give him a raise . . . I would venture a guess that none of these things have happened responsive to any of his work products. For Munro, the accolades and rewards are reserved for misbehaving toward the first President of the United States, who is not white.
This event is a lesson in racism, aptly described by a former Chief Justice of the United States, Roger B. Taney, as a culture in which a person of African descent has "no rights that a white man is bound to respect." Consistent with that idea, although the President has the right to speak uninterrupted, during a National address, Neil Munro claimed, by his actions, that he is not bound to respect that right . . .
Finally, after all the good fellows at The Daily Caller giggled and smirked, and patted each other on the back, The Editor-In-Chief offered the version of lying that major media has become so good at, namely, saying things that are not true, not related or, that make no sense, to create confusion around an issue, so that it will not be characterized as what it is . .
True to this evolving method of deceit, The Dally Caller's Editor-in-Chief, Tucker Carlson, quipped “I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan." But what he didn't say is that Sam Donaldson is 11 years older than Diane Sawyer, employed as a journalist 17 years longer than her, and he was at ABC 32 years before she got there . . . Under what theory would she presume to "scold" him for anything . . .
Carlson's nonsensical statement, that Diane Sawyer did not "scold" Sam Donaldson, gave birth to the lie, by impression, that other presidents have been similarly disrespected, and the people in charge did not take issue with it. When the truth is that no president in modern history has been talked over while making a national address, yet it has happened to this president — twice . . .
