Media Pros...Disclose your political affiliatlion Who did YOU vote for?

Full Disclosure..  Who did YOU vote for?

Should MEDIA "pros"......in the spirit of FULL Disclosure disclose their POLITICAL affiliation.



Should they be compelled to tell US who THEY voted for?

Why won't they? 

Seems to ME...that it makes ABSOLUTE sense...for ....if we don't have a basis point in which to analyze what media analysis is trying to tell us..,,,
Joe McCarthy warned us of the Media's

When I ask those who ASK me...the same question they ask....and the response is...."I don't disclose..."...MY RESPONSE....

I DON'T TRUST those that don't trust me with their truth.....PERIOD...simple, stupid....

My name is Tucker, NOT Sucker

Newspaper Editors
In January 1998, Editor & Publisher, the preeminent media trade magazine, conducted a poll of 167 newspaper editors across the country. Investor’s Business Daily reporter Matthew Robinson obtained complete poll results, highlights of which were featured in the MRC’s February 1998 MediaWatch.
KEY FINDINGS:
  • In 1992, when just 43 percent of the public voted Democrat Bill Clinton for President, 58 percent of editors surveyed voted for him.
  • In 1996, a minority (49 percent) of the American people voted to reelect Clinton, compared to a majority (57 percent) of the editors.
  • When asked “How often do journalists’ opinions influence coverage?” a solid majority of the editors (57 percent) conceded it “sometimes” happens while another 14 percent said opinions “often” influence news coverage. In contrast, only one percent claim it “never” happens, and 26 percent say personal views “seldom” influence coverage.

Campaign Journalists
New York Times columnist John Tierney surveyed 153 campaign journalists at a press party at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Although it was not a scientific sampling, Tierney found a huge preference for Democratic Senator John Kerry over incumbent Republican President George W. Bush, particular among journalists based in Washington, D.C. He found that journalists from outside Washington preferred Kerry by a three-to-one margin, while those who work inside the Beltway favored Kerry’s election by a 12-to-1 ratio.
KEY FINDINGS:


 Bill O'Reilly and Bob Beckel...."It Doesn't make a Difference..." says Beckel

Watch Beckel deny reality.
BILL O'REILLY: You're dodging my question. Do you believe there are no Republican or conservative journalists that are qualified to hold those positions?

BOB BECKEL: I certainly think there are, sure. But I don't care if there are not.

O'REILLY: Why don't you care?

BECKEL: I don't think it matters. I don't think it sends the news one way or the other.

O'REILLY: So if all of the network anchors were Republican conservatives it wouldn't bother you?

BECKEL: Oh, I'd be complaining about--all of the time just like the Republicans complain.

O'REILLY: You're making my point. You're making my point.

BECKEL: They happen to be there. They got hired. They went up and worked their way up the ranks for the most part and they got their jobs.

O'REILLY: Now wait a minute They didn't work their way up the ranks with all due respect to most of them. They were appointed to that position. That is a subjective position. I worked in network news, and I know that promotions were given to people based upon their political leanings and based upon how they conducted themselves in the politically correct atmosphere in which they work.

BECKEL: Are you suggesting these people got their jobs because they were liberal Democrats? If so, you have got the greatest lawsuit going there in the history of mankind.

O'REILLY: There's no lawsuit there because you can't prove it. I will suggest to you, and I know it's true that some of the people that are promoted at the network level are promoted because of political correctness, absolutely that is the case.

BECKEL: If can you believe that's absolutely the case --

O'REILLY: Wait a minute. We just documented to you, every single one of those people being liberal or a Democrat. Every -- except for Scott Pelley, I honestly can't say what Scott Pelley is. But we just documented that to you. Do you think that's a coincidence?

BECKEL: Do I think it's a coincidence?

O'REILLY: Yeah.

BECKEL:Do I think the pool of people that they pick from are overwhelmingly Democrat? Sure! But what difference does it make?

O'REILLY: Well wait a minute. Your contention is it doesn't make a difference.

BECKEL: I don't think it makes a difference at all.

Picketing the Media see Power of Ten



Beckel: Network Anchors Overwhelmingly Democrat, But 'Doesn't Make Difference At All'




Player, please . . . Does liberal pundit Bob Beckel care about his credibility?  Apparently not. Beckel has admitted that the pool of network anchors is "overwhelmingly Democrat," but somehow argues that "it doesn't make a difference at all."  Riiight.

Beckel appeared on this evening's O'Reilly Factor after host Bill had documented chapter and verse that every leading network anchor with the possible exception of Scott Pelley is a confirmed liberal or Democrat.  But Beckel refused to admit the undeniable--that this affects the nature of their coverage.  "I don't think it matters.  I don't think it sends the news one way or another." This despite also admitting that if the tables were turned and virtually all the anchors were Republican, he'd be complaining about it "all the time." View the video after the jump.
