Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Is There A First Amendment Right For The Press To Not Report the News?

There is no doubt that the press has Constitutional protection to print the news, and this right must not be infringed upon.  But does the press, and we're discussing the liberal press here, have a right to NOT report the news, to selectively report only the news that is favorable to their side and to fail to report news that hurts the liberal slant on things?

Some examples of this non-reporting the news are the repeated apocalyptic predictions of Obama about how devastating the sequester would be, compared with how tame the reality of the sequester really is, but yhere is no mention in the dominant press of the government email in which the White House warned the Department of Agriculture  to not allow outcomes that "contradicted" Obama's dire predictions to occur.  In other words, the White House wants as much pain to be experienced by Americans as possible so the can blame the Republicans for the entire sequester thing, which we all know was Obama's idea.

Another ongoing news cover-up is the fact that the global warming/climate change agenda (the exact term used by liberals keeps changing with their politics) was all a contrived lie and that there has been no warming, human-caused or otherwise, for years.  Yet Obama and the United Nations are still trying to tax the world, and in particular the United States, to rectify this blatant lie.

A third non-reported piece of news is all of the lives saved each year by people carrying guns used to defend themselves.  All we hear about are the nuts who kill innocent students and theater attendees, but nothing about the good gun-owning people who rid us of violent scum (often leftists) who attack them.  And for certain there is never a comparison of the deaths from guns between highly regulated gun-law states and right-to-carry states.  It's much more dangerous to visit a highly regulated state or city than a less regulated one.

And there are other critically important stories not being reported by the liberal press, such as Benghazi and what Obama did all night long as his own appointees in were being killed, and Fast and Furious and why guns were illegally allowed to go to known killers in Mexico, resulting in a U.S. border agent getting killed.

Is there no logical, unspoken requirement that the news being reported be complete and accurate?  In my opinion it would be preferable to get no news at all than to be fed only what liberals want us to hear and read.

I'm just saying.
