What Woke The Zombies?
May 22, 2013 by Bob Livingston
The mainstream corporate media, which for five years have gone about their business as if they were Obama zombies, seem to be awakening from their stupor with a zombie-like appetite for the brains and entrails of certain government functionaries in the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justiceâ€¦ and perhaps President Barack Obama himself. The question is: What suddenly aroused them?
Have revelations that Obamaâ€™s DOJ has targeted reporters and their sources with overreaching and possible illegal surveillance — including threatening to charge one talking head as a co-conspirator for reporting on an Obama scandal — finally awakened the media to the fact that Obamaâ€™s modus operandi is as a Stalinesque thugocrat who has used the force of government to target certain members of the press, conservatives and whistle-blowers? Or have the worldâ€™s elite sent the message down the line that Obama has broken the unwritten law and unleashed the media to remove Obama from power?
A free press is essential in a republic. Its job is to serve as a check on government actions and to keep the general public informed about what its representatives are doing or not doing. But the press has not been â€śfreeâ€ť for some time, and thatâ€™s why weâ€™re losing the republic.
Thirty years ago, some 50 companies controlled 90 percent of the media in America. Now itâ€™s owned lock, stock and barrel by six media giants. The messages we receive from the MSM are tightly controlled and designed to maintain the false right/left paradigm.
Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s difficult to believe the media are now awake and agitated because theyâ€™re suddenly aware of growing tyranny under a corrupt Obama Administration. Something else, it seems, is afoot.
