I heard a commercial on the radio the other day (isnt WCYB a TV station?) of WCYB hyping up a story they are going to do about the latest gun control push by the leftist. What they were really doing seemed to me to be just hyping up the issue with a severe leftist spin.

The leftist slant was audible and discernable. One of the clues was a promise in that add to compare how American gun laws compare with other nations, such as Western Europe.

Excuse me, but why would we want to be like them?

Have we not fought 200 years of wars against those powers due to their terrible track records on freedoms and individual liberty? Are not those same Western European nations the reasons why our founding fathers gave us the Constitution to start with, so that we do not end up like them?

Good grief!

The leftist news media would somehow have us to think that we fought two wars against Britain because they were forcing too much freedom and individual liberties on us? I ponder that question.

Anyway, I just have a low opinion of WCYB (and WJHL as well) because of the general corporate news medias ridiculous slant to the left. So much so that I must conclude these media outlets to be useless for reproof, unreliable, untruthful in reporting, and of no value to our society.

What I do perceive is that there seems to be an organized effort for the leftist media to reduce the traditional strongholds of conservative thinking (like the Southern Appalachian Mountains areas). So, let us all beware of the leftist media. Their venom is not harmless.

You need to continue to get 100% of your news and information from Fox (News?) and Rush Limbaugh and become less relevant than you are already! Local stations have a leftist slant??? The word paranoid comes to mind while you build your underground bunker and stockpile guns!

I find it startling that the news media engaged itself into a full blown propaganda assault to support the leftist cause in the gun control controversy of disarming the American people. The media really threw its weight around in supporting Obama and the leftist.

And probably the most disgusting show of media and administration dishonesty was the exploitation for political ends, of the children whom Obama had on stage with him as he signed his Imperial edicts into law. And all under the guise of "protecting the children".

Of course this was all preceded by a continuous bombardment of emotionalism, knee-jerk legislation proposals, and political (leftist only) slogan chanting. This went on day after day, week after week, month after month.

It was the media equivalent of the bombardment that preceded the British attack on the Somme in 1916. It just went on and on, with "protecting the children" as the theme to rationalize why a nation should loose its freedoms.

And just last week, the Obama administration released thousands of dangerous criminals from prisons, jst to stir up fear and anger at the republicans over the budget sequester mess that Obama pushed for, signed into law, and them bumbled us into.

So, what about the "protect the children" thing? How is releasing thousands of dangerous criminals onto the children of the land doing anything to protect them?

Its an obvious double standard, isnt it?

Should we hold WCYB accountable for national news stories in not adequetly covering this? WCYB was all behind pushing the gun control thing, which is a national level event.

So why shouldnt we hold them accountable for not covering the hypocrisy of the Obama administration, in releasing thousands of dangerous criminals onto the defenseless children?

If WCYB is going to be credible, then they are going to have to be fair and impartial. Otherwise, they will be seen as just more corporate owned lackeys of the political left.

In other words, totally unreliable, and of no credit.

BTW, since WCYB is now covering national interest stories in apparent lock step with the socialist (leftist) mainstream media in this country, then there is a story that they should be covering.

Obama has closed tours at the White House, cancelled the Blue Angles flight performance team, and even reduced the pay rates of capitol hill janitors, as well as any other highly noticeable cut or reduction the dems can think of. This in a ridiculous attempt to focus a hyped up blame game on the republicans over the sequester mess (that he invented, and stumbled us into).

But then, Obama has quietly found enough money to give 250 Billion of our dollars (borrowed from China) to give this money to Egypt, which is controlled by the Muslim brotherhood. This is an anti-American and anti Israel group that is dedicated to the ruin of the US and its allies.

No money for the American public to tour our White House, and these many other things, but lots of money to give to the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt.

WCYB, where is your voice on this?

And just today, Fox news released some details of a secrete e-mail memo attributed to the White House of Obama telling his cabinet to "make the sequester hurt".

This is just part of the never ending blame game and the perpetual campaign of Obama and the leftist news media.

WCYB entered the gun control debate on the side of the left , which is a national issue. So, why are they not covering the Obama deceptions in regards to the sequester?

Perhaps WCYB is unreliable and untrustworthy, as is the rest of mainstream media?

It seems to be a "grain of salt" situation to me.

Watch WKPT. They have a new format with new people and if nothing else, it's worth watching for the entertainment value as they fumble around trying to find their footing as a "new" news crew.

I think WCYB had to force Johnny Wood to retire for fear he would give away their leftist conspiracy plot during the fishing report. If he mentioned "blue gill were biting on South Holston Lake," that was code for Obama's planning on requiring background checks at gun shows. I'm going to start watching for more subliminal clues. Good watching out hillbillyboy and stay on your meds!

Are you so irresponsible towards the good of your country that you consider it a light thing when the media becomes corrupted? You make stupid jokes about so serious a thing as the extinction of a peoples freedoms by a tyrany?

Is your conscious so calloused, as if seared with a hot iron?

WCYB will cover a national interest story, but only one that the leftist are pushing, like gun control.

The conservative interest stories are not covered. When was the latest time that WCYB did a special series on whether evolution was true or a myth?

(sound of crickets chirping)

That is what is going on in America. The news media is censoring the news, so that only the leftist perspective is presented.

So the news media are not reporters any more. They are participants. WCYB is involving itself along the same political struggle as Obama and Diane Feinstein, et al.

For example, if there is a pro-life rally somewhere that 10,000 people show up, you probably wont hear anything about it from the national news media.

But if there is an anti-gun rally, or a pro gay-marriage rally somewhere, them the media is all over it.

If a conservative voice is presented at all, it is usually soundbited out of context, clipped, and distorted (or just not covered) at all.

Is that a conspiracy? No, it is the outcome of one.
