Letter to the Editor

Journalist proclaims liberal bias in media

web posted May 30, 2009
Dear Editor,
For almost 20 years now I've worked entirely in the television business.  And while the vast majority of that has been in the outdoors field, I often worked weekends at my local NBC affiliate as a field producer when I first got into the business.  Even at the local level I was surprised to find that the vast majority of the decision makers at the station were liberals who leaned far left in their political views.  Hence, I often failed to notice stories that I'd produced in the field after the final editing process had taken place.

As of late, you would have a hard time watching a news broadcast by CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, or MSNBC without hearing the words torture or waterboarding.  In fact, the mainstream media has gone into such a feeding frenzy against the former Bush Administration on the issue of torture that I can no longer watch a broadcast.  Is there not a single person in the mainstream media that can admit that the waterboarding of terror suspects no doubt yielded highly sought information regarding enemy movements in Iraq?  Can you honestly doubt that these procedures didn't save the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of American soldiers?  There's a reason that the Obama Administration has forbidden the CIA to share any more information on the waterboarding of these individuals.  It's because they don't want the American public to hear the good that came from it.

However, on the flip side of the coin, in the midst of their slobbering love affair with President Obama, they offered nothing but praise for the man after he "green lighted" our Special Forces to shoot 3 Somali Pirates in the head.  That's 3 dead Somalis in exchange for one American life.  Former President Bush waterboarded several terror suspects in order to gain information that saved thousands of Americans on the Iraqi battlefields only to be demonized by the liberal media.  President Obama kills 3 Somali teenagers in exchange for one American life and is treated like a hero.

How far will the mainstream media be allowed to go? 

John L. Brown Jr.
