Watch Chuck Todd admit the obvious. The Regime uses propaganda.
The liberals in the Lame Stream Media who enabled the election of a Constitution-loathing, unqualified radical leftist are shocked to learn that the Left lies. From Mediate:
Photojournalists are still very upset that they are not being granted the same level of access as the official White House photographer, and one of them is amping the fight up a few notches. Santiago Lyon, the vice president and director of photography at the Associated Press, penned an op-ed for The New York Times in which he decries the Obama administration as “Orwellian” for not letting photographers take pictures of him.
Lyon accuses the White House of releasing a “sanitized visual record” of official White House events instead of letting photographers from news organizations in to snap pictures of their own. He makes the undeniable point that President Obama has managed things in “hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on” and how the official pictures released are “visual news releases,” but then goes on to accuse the White House of being borderline dictatorial.
If you take this practice to its logical conclusion, why have news conferences? Why give reporters any access to the White House? It would be easier to just have a daily statement from the president… and call it a day. Repressive governments do this all the time…
Until the White House revisits its draconian restrictions on photojournalists’ access to the president, information-savvy citizens, too, would be wise to treat those handout photos for what they are: propaganda.
You can read the whole op-ed here.
Images are especially powerful at communicating with the ignorant, the emotionally-driven, and those of lower intelligence, which is another way of describing Obama supporters.
Welcome to the fight, my liberal media friends. News flash: the Left lies.
