What a bizarre world we're living in these days. We now have the press trying to shut down the media. John Ziegler was detained, handcuffed and abused at an event honoring Katie Couric for her hatchet job on Sarah Palin.
Watch the video, read Ziegler's account then ponder these questions:
If this happened to a New York Times, CNN or MSNBC reporter, what would the response have been by the media? the left?
Have you heard about this anywhere other than on Greta Van Susteren (if you happened to watch it)?
Can you believe this is happening in the USA? I know, I know... this happened on a college campus in California which means it's not really "mainstream" America, but still... wouldn't you think a college SHOULD be a promoter of free speech? Given the "progressive" bent of most, if not all, of the attendees, wouldn't you think they'd be thrilled to support a little bit of independent thought? Stop laughing. Right now. Stop it. These people are open minded, they love everyone, they... alright, even I can't continue with that silliness. Laugh away.
I bought a copy of Ziegler's Media Malpractice. I highly recommend that you order a copy or two or ten.
