Course language is quite applicable here .
But my post won't stay up if I use it .
The day could very easily come in this country that harsh language would be welcomed as opposed the fear of super sonic cracks and the struggle for daily food intake.
Now I don't know who was responsible for the editing .
But it is clear they presented not the reality or the truth .
As Franklin said " Half the truth is often a great lie . "
Fate , Karma , God , an angry homeless out of government cheese beggar
may get some justice out of you one day .
There are a great deal of people so ignorant of what is going on in this country
they have no real conception of what shape we are in and , like many in history , to stupid to understand what is happening to them literally up to the point the doors close on the showers or the furnace door or until they see the slit trench.
The untruthfulness and arrogance of channel 8 has shown themselves to be either a willing or unwitting enemy of the Constitution , freedom and peoples property .
You declared yourselves an enemy of the patriots in this county .
I doubt you were smart enough to realize then ... or now .
If are .. so much the worse .

How ridiculous, literally. This isn't journalism reporting on an event, its a hit piece attacking ideologies and only displaying uninformative clips that are obviously meant to smear these groups. I'm not a libertarian, but i do have eyes, and yes I do pay taxes. Is it just me or does this video have a hint of yellow prevailing through the picture?

Just another media hit piece. Instead of trying to find out why poeple were motivated enough to come to the state house and protest. This so called journalist shows clips of a nervous person who probably never was on TV and who had much on her plate. Pathetic!

It's not enough to simply boycott the Wish8 advertisers, you need to write them and explain why you are doing so. Help them spend their advertising money more wisely. Jim Shella is a scumbag with an agenda. You can find better "reporting" at any middle school student paper in Marion County.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
I will spread the word to my friends about WISH 8 and after we're all said and done, they will NEVER screw with the people again. Jim Shella is a loser and a traitor to this nation. Our US Dollar is very close to collapsing. As soon as China can monetize another currency, the collapse of the dollar will occur very fast and thus, social unrest will occur. I do not even want to mention what may happen next. I know too many people who are aware that this is a powder keg ready to explode. To think that all people really want is their government to follow the Constitution is such an absurd notion and people like Shella are part of the problem and not the solution.

You should through a protest at Jim Shella's church. Bring your arguments right there in front of all of his peers.

My friend held the Cincinnati protest that drew over 4,000 people. I will connect you with the organizers there because it looks like you can use some help with your worthless media.

I would like to be charitable here, and address many of the excellent points made by Mr. Kirk (kudos!)- along with extra kudos for the videos he selected. But my patience is short and therefore so must my comments.

I've seen hack jobs like what Mr. Shella has done. Either he is a journalistic prostitute or he is a lackey doing what his masters have told him to do. The people have eschewed the mainstream media for the internet and truly independent media because the mainstream only shows one side of the story, and now the media corporations are teaming up with other special interests to control the content available on the internet "Internet 2", so REAL news can't leak out. Have to keep the sheep-le ignorant of what's going on, so they can be better managed (controlled).

FYI: I work in law enforcement. I started as a cadet for a major university here in Indiana, worked my way up and out - to another agency. When I first started my public safety career, Three major events occurred; the Ruby Ridge, Idaho siege of the Weaver family - the Waco massacre in Texas, and the Oklahoma City Bombing. While I know for a fact that there are honest people working in the mainstream media, the simple fact is that what most people know about all three events is severely WRONG. Weaver was not a wild-eyed white supremacist, David Koresh was not a baby-raping drug doping gun runner, and Timothy McVeigh was not the mastermind (or right-hand man) in that plot. The news was slanted on purpose, to hide the truth. Suffice it to say, nobody trusts the mainstream media because they have demonstrated their un-trustworthiness on occasions far more numerous. Oh, and forget everything the media told ever told you about militia groups, as long as I'm in a 90's flashback mode. McVeigh was not a member of the Michigan Militia, even the FBI said so. That was made up from whole cloth by the media and by certain politicians.

Now there's another group that the people are very angry with. The politicians queue up the patriotic soundtrack and break out the Red, White & Blue when they want your votes, but they sneer on the US and state constitutions every other time of the year. They ignore it outright at the federal level and in Indiana they honor it more in the breach than in the observance. Even Mitch Daniels, who unlawfully sold the toll-road for a 99 year term, in violation of existing state law and court precedent. Then he obtained political cover from the Indiana supreme Court, when they violated their office by denying litigants against the toll road sale their access to the Court, thus violating Section 12 of the Indiana Bill of Rights (Article 1 of the Indiana Constitution).

But it gets worse. I used to work for the Ind. Board of Elections.... Since the advent of mechanically tabulated elections (punch-cards) and touch-screen machines in particular, nearly all of our elections above the local level have been compromised. I don't blame the people who voted, or the people who didn't vote. I blame the people who count the vote. I blame the people who had the authority to expose this, and to change it, but who didn't.

I blame the corrupt judges who let two-legged predators go free to prey on our children and our elderly, on the weak and the defenseless, all the while denying justice to the falsely accused. I remember the story of one man, who upon being falsely accused and knowing that he could not afford the sort of attorney that would get him free, and knowing that he was being prosecuted for his political views, simply wrote a final love letter to his wife, his lifelong sweetie, took his pistol and ate a bullet.

The freedom lovers of America are not far behind. Recently, the Missouri State Police issued a counter-terrorism report that declared Libertarians, Ron Paul Republicans, Constitution Party members, and other law-abiding citizens (grouped broadly by beliefs such as gun rights activism, tax honesty, money reform, and property rights) to all be terrorists. By this stain, everyone at the rally last Wednesday would have been subjected to Homeland Security scrutiny...

This is why we have a Bill of Rights, but when the people see the Bill of Rights negated as it continues to be, even with Bush out of office... that's the reason why the ammo shelves at local gun shops, Wal-Mart, Dicks, Cabela's, and elsewhere are all empty. Among the general public and even among SOME law enforcement, the quiet discussion is not whether there will be a 2nd American Revolution, but WHEN... and I do mean a 2-way firing range!

So I understand the anger expressed by many, including some of those who have vented their frustration here. But it has been headed this way for a long time; and that's why the federal government even before 9-11 aimed the nation's surveillance/enforcement apparatus not against foreign threats but against its own people. Patriot Acts 1, 2 & 3 as well as National ID, Posse Comitatus, Habeas Corpus, and other laws are for YOU. HR1955/S.1959(Patriot Act 4) was aimed at YOU. And if you and especially your children don't start goosestepping to the GIVE Act(HR1388)- which is mandatory universal national service - then according to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, in comments he made last fall, anyone that doesn't get on the bus to go to boot camp... will have to "get on the train"... to a different kind of camp. Read HR 645, a bill to establish "relocation centers" on closed military bases.

Now this last part is going to be a bit controversial for some, but not for too many if everyone is buying ammo for the reasons articulated by some of the previous post's here. If there is a thread that is running through ALL of the grievances behind the "Revolt at the Statehouse", it is the feckless desire by so many in positions of trust - whether politicians, media, judges, bureaucrats, police or others - to deprive the average citizen of justice and most of all, peaceful avenues of redress.

John F. Kennedy said when you make peaceful change impossible, you make violent revolution inevitable. That is largely why the feds are already quietly building an 80,000 troop force under NORTHCOM to deploy domestically for the purpose of suppressing the liberty movement that has been underway now. The media cannot contain the truth because of the Internet, that is why the Pentagon has declared the 'net to be an "enemy weapons system". Remember, freedom-lovers are the enemy (according to the discredited MIAC Report), and the weapon is INFORMATION. HR 645 was written with freedom-lovers in mind.

Chances are, this missive of mine may be deleted soon, and in any event that is why my post here is anonymized... the authorities can ill afford a pro-liberty cop on the beat, upholding the constitution above the orders of superiors - orders that are illegal because the Constitution is the SUPREME law of the land! They would fire me if they knew me, for speaking my mind.

As Mr. Kirk pointed out in a previous post, Obama ordered video blogger Bob Basso to report to the White House to discuss what Obama called "the disturbing nature of the video". This man said nothing controversial, he just spoke emphatically on a number of current but important issues. The sad fact is, the federal government thinks what this man said represents a threat to national security, and are willing to summon him to make an accounting for what he has uttered.

This may not be the end of free speech in America, but if the substance of Obama's talk with this man goes the way I think it will, this may permanently mark the chilling of political speech on the Internet and of dissentful speech in particular.

Some observers in the Special Forces community have noted that the crucial time for a "hot", or shooting, revolution is not when there is a knock on your door but as early as when the authorities move to suppress free speech.

Those who attack freedom-lovers as enemies of the state are likely themselves enemies of liberty. That is why the enemies of liberty have spent so much time and effort attacking the credibility and the legitimacy of militias. No militia group ever committed an act of terrorism in America, and no militia group ever burned down a church or shot a mother in the head while holding a baby. No legitimate militia group has ever advocated breaking the law or advocated overthrowing our form of government. The powers that be are scared of them because they teach community, self-reliance, teamwork, citizenship, preparedness, and a lot more. If society collapsed tomorrow, the militia would be the one group outside the government that could provide for themselves (and their families) and still be able to respond anywhere, anytime, to help people.

Don't take anyone's word for it. Check 'em out for yourself. - because the mainstream media won't give you the truth. Don't judge till you see what they're about.

If worse comes to pass, they may turn out to be your best ally. Remember Katrina. Don't Forget Waco. And consider, the bailout was designed by the people who used to work for the companies getting bailed out now. Have a nice day.

Jim Shell has once again shown his true colors. He is a worthless hack with no regard for the truth.

WISH is complicit because they continue to employ such an inadequate and shallow person.

My only recourse is to no longer watch anything from WISH and it will be my pleasure to do just that.

Thanks for the insightful post Man With a Badge.

Despite the attempts of the propaganda outlets citizens do have minds to think with.

The dumbing down that has been a constant in the media will lead to more and more independent thinkers finding REAL news outlets, and leaving fluff and agenda pushing outlets such as WISH 8 behind.

Shella is a POS. Most of the volunteers at the booths are not as articulate as the leaders in the freedom movement. They just know the empire is crumbling around them and they're there to hand out literature and to educate the public and hopefully their representatives (sic),the latter (the politicians) who are responsible for the mess we're all in now.

As just a outsider looking in and seeing this story, it makes me wonder what is the problem WISH-TV had with this Rally? They really put a negtive slant on this Rally and made the people who were there look like idiots. I am so glad I am not a fan of WISH-TV.

Great thanks to the commentator here, Man With a Badge, for taking the time to tell the truth, scary as it is. Real Americans were at the take back the statehouse rally; there were no sheeple there.

Where was Channel 6, 13, and 59? I have not seen any coverage from them. Will Nuvo or the Indianapolis Recorder do a job? So, the outrage about Channel 8 and program on Channel 20 is justified, we should also take note that their brother networks also deserve contempt.

The powers that be and proponents of the new world order want major sports teams to be financed so that the men can channel their instincts toward tribal loyalties in this way, instead of uniting to protect their families from the corrupt men and women who have been allowed to rise to the top. I have pretty much given up on democracy.
