New York Times Admits That Virtually Every Major News Organization Allows The News To Be Censored By Government Official

By The American Dream

In one of the most shocking articles that the New York Times has ever put out, a New York Timesreporter has openly admitted that virtually every major mainstream news organization allows government bureaucrats and campaign officials to censor their stories.  For example, almost every major news organization in the country has agreed to submit virtually all quotes from anyone involved in the Obama campaign or the Romney campaign to gatekeepers for “quote approval” before they will be published.  If the gatekeeper in the Obama campaign does not want a certain quote to get out, the American people will not see it, and the same thing applies to the Romney campaign.  The goal is to keep the campaigns as “on message” as possible and to avoid gaffes at all cost.  But this kind of thing is not just happening with political campaigns.  According to the New York Times, “quote approval” has become “commonplace throughout Washington.”  In other words, if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the federal government then it is safe to say that a gatekeeper has almost certainly reviewed that quote and has approved it.  This is another sign that “the free and independent media” in this country is a joke.  What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves.  People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from the mainstream media.

The following quote comes from the recent article in the New York Times mentioned above and it is absolutely jaw dropping….

The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative.

They are sent by e-mail from the Obama headquarters in Chicago to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name.

Most reporters, desperate to pick the brains of the president’s top strategists, grudgingly agree. After the interviews, they review their notes, check their tape recorders and send in the juiciest sound bites for review.

The verdict from the campaign — an operation that prides itself on staying consistently on script — is often no, Barack Obama does not approve this message. Click here to continue reading this article.

Myself, I think Shepard Smith is the best news anchor they have…

“Why hasn’t Shepard Smith come out yet?” asks the left-leaning website Gawker.

 

Gawker claims the popular Fox News anchor was “silenced and punished” after approaching CEO Roger Ailes last summer about going public about his homosexuality.

But now Ailes and Smith are firing back, calling the story “100 percent false and a complete fabrication.” Continue reading Myself, I think Shepard Smith is the best news anchor they have…

Obscure facts about George Costanza

George Costanza Had 43 Girlfriends on the show

Over the course of 9 seasons, Costanza has 43 girlfriends. At one point he gets engaged and tries that out, but it ends disastrously. His relationships last a very short while before they crash and burn, too, or fizzle out. George’s parents are Frank and Estella, who he lives with for awhile. He says he lost his virginity to Ms. Stafford, his homeroom teacher. Jerry humors his need to over express himself and overanalyze things. By the end of the series, George is womanless.

George Costanza was Photobombing 15 years before it became a thing…

Festivus was actually not created by George’s father

Festivus was actually not created by George’s father, Frank Costanza. The fake holiday was created well before the series was even conceived, in 1966, by an editor of Reader’s Digest named Dan O’Keefe, who created it to celebrate the anniversary of his first date with his wife. Festivus came to the script of Seinfeld by way of O’Keefe’s son, who was working as a writer of the show. The aluminum pole was the writer’s own artistic spin on Festivus.

George was written out of complete episode (‘The Pen’, season 3) and Jason Alexander threatened to quit Seinfeld if it happened again

Jason Alexander describes this incident as one of the “few” problems he ever had with series creator Larry David. Worried that he was unneeded and on the path to being written out of the show permanently, Alexander confronted David, saying, “Larry if you do it again, do it permanently.” He had the confidence to confront David, he says, because the show was not yet a hit, and Alexander had uprooted his career for it.

Costanza is named after a real friend of Jerry Seinfeld’s, who later sued Jerry over it

While most know that Larry David modeled the George Costanza character after himself, most are unaware that the character is named after Jerry’s friend, Mike Costanza. Mike Costanza would later sue Seinfeld, David, and NBC for $100 million, claiming invasion of privacy and defamation of character. The case was dismissed.
