Sometimes You Just Gotta Love Your Enemies

This time, a mainstream media exec tells us the truth behind the lies. Here is evidence that the MSM colludes to keep conservatives out of power. As if we needed any more than we already have, huh? But, this quote is so blatant, it will almost take your breathe away:

Jean-Claude Dassier, the director general of the rolling news service TCI, said the prominence given to the rioters on international news networks had been “excessive” and could even be fanning the flames of the violence.

Mr Dassier said his own channel, which is owned by the private broadcaster TF1, recently decided not to show footage of burning cars.

“Politics in France is heading to the right and I don’t want rightwing politicians back in second, or even first place because we showed burning cars on television,” Mr Dassier told an audience of broadcasters at the News Xchange conference in Amsterdam today.

“Having satellites trained on towns across France 24 hours a day showing the violence would have been wrong and totally disproportionate ... Journalism is not simply a matter of switching on the cameras and letting them roll. You have to think about what you’re broadcasting,” he said.

Man, oh man, you just gotta love your enemies, when they tell the truth. Thanks for that, Mr. Dassier.

I think Mr. Dassier might be interested to know that, here in America, we have a channel called C-Span, which just switches on the cameras and lets them roll. The liberal magazine, the New Yorker, had a twenty-page feature on the founder of C-Span a few years back, wherein they praised the channel for the positive impact it has on Democracy, by bringing the uncensored truth of the inner-workings of government, and politics, right into the homes of the average American.

Gee, what a concept, huh, Mr. Dassier?
