“Liberal Media Exposed–But Is It Too Late?” by Todd Strandberg

The public is starting to wake up to the true nature of the liberal media. A new poll by the Gallup Organization finds that 57 percent of Americans say they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. This is a far cry from 1970s, when more than 70 percent of the population thought the media was very trustworthy.

I’m glad to finally see the liberal media being regarded as a force that guides public opinion. One of the first articles I wrote for Rapture Ready was titled “Satan’s Little Helpers.” It should be a no-brainer that the devil would use the press to control the world:

Although Satan has a host of demonic angels throughout the world, there is one area from which the devil finds himself mostly restricted. Satan and company are spiritual beings, which makes them incapable of acting in this physical realm. Satan’s little helpers must be of flesh and bone. So this is where the need for human organizations comes in. In the nations where the devil has dictators in command, he can use them directly to control those countries. In the “free world,” Satan has found that the liberal media makes an effective tool with which to guide and control society.

For many years, I’ve been frustrated over the public’s inability to see how the liberal media twists the news to fit its left-wing agenda. How can we possibly hope to win the culture war when we have an agent who is constantly putting its own spin on reality?

Liberals are so dedicated to their cause that they will sacrifice everything for the liberal agenda. In 2004, Dan Rather destroyed his career as the anchor of CBS news with his effort to defame President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service record. When a group of bloggers called into question the authenticity of these documents, the network was forced to retract its story. Rather admitted that the evidence was bogus, yet he had blindly believed the story in spite of its missing evidence.

CNN is probably the best example of liberal bias at work. At one time, CNN was the king of the roster. When Fox News came along, CNN lost 80 percent of its viewers. The demographic of the nation explains why: 60 percent of the population views itself at conservative, and people of the right are more likely to watch news.

What was CNN’s reaction to this mass exodus? Of course, it became all the more liberal. The few conservatives who were at the network were forced out. They did have a brief relapse when they hired Glenn Beck to host a show on its sister network’s “Headline News.” Beck left for Fox right when CNN said it was planning to remove one of his nightly telecasts.

CNN now has a whole new concept of what qualifies as conservative. I was reading a report about the Rick Sanchez scandal, and my eye caught a review of a new entry: “Parker Spitzer”–a prime-time talk show anchored by disgraced ex- New York governor Eliot Spitzer and conservative columnist Kathleen Parker. Since I had never heard of Parker, I looked her up on Wikipedia and found how only in CNN’s twisted world she could be seen as a conservative match for the liberal Eliot Spitzer:

On “Larry King Live,” she said of President Barack Obama: “I’m a big fan of Barack Obama as he came into office, and was not one of those Republicans who wanted him to do badly.”

Parker made news during the 2008 U.S. presidential election when she called on the Republican vice presidential nominee, Governor Sarah Palin, to step down from the party ticket.

She referred to evangelical Christians in another column as “gorillas,” “low-brows,” and “ooggedy-boogedy.”

The fractionalization of media is what has broken liberals’ stranglehold on news reporting. People can to turn to prophecy sites like Rapture Ready to find a resource that fits their end-time view. Today, I have so many sources for news that I don’t need to turn to the old media for information. The only reason I do watch liberal news is see how they are reporting events.

I’m not sure the downturn in people’s view of the liberal media is all that hopeful. The key factor at work here is that hard times have forced Americans to look for the source of our nations problems. There is no quick fix at this point. Liberals have polluted the minds of two, going on three, generations of our fellow citizens.

There is still some hope that next month’s election will turn things around in Washington DC, but I’m not holding my breath.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor. 10:3-5).
