Will The Scales Fall From Media Eyes?

Whether the media admits it or not, they are rapidly becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic party and Obama campaign. Maybe the openly stated plan to attack television stations that dare to air anti-Obama ads didn't get their attention. (The Obama campaign pledged to coordinate attacks on those stations, but the media largely yawned.) Maybe the arrest of one of their own for daring to attempt to film lobbyists and Democratic Senators will finally enlighten them as to what they are involved in. Perhaps they'll pay attention to the story of Asa Eslocker, an ABC News producer.

A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker's neck, then twisted the producers arm behind him to put on handcuffs.

A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.

Eslocker was put in handcuffs and loaded in the back of a police van which headed for a nearby police station.

Video taken at the scene shows a man, wearing the uniform of a Boulder County sheriff, ordering Eslocker off the sidewalk in front of the hotel, to the side of the entrance.

The sheriff's officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street.

The media better wake up. Or they will be completely owned and will have no one to blame but themselves.

For all the screeching from the left that they were being oppressed under the Bush presidency, I don't recall network personnel being herded off to jail. Thuggish tactics seem to be the forte of the "liberals".

    Nothing to see here, everyone move along. Imagine the reaction if Bushitler had ever had a journalist arrested for filming him?

    Will the scales fall from the media eyes? You gotta be kidding!  The more interesting question is how many of them will still be around next year at the rate that newspapers are laying off staff.

    The scales will never fall from the MSM’s eyes. I am convinced that a huge majority of them actully relish the prospect of fascism and want to be the ones shipping "racists" and anyone else who gets in their way off to concentration camps.

    For the MSM, most of whom are true believers of The One, they will probably feel that those being pressured or arrested had it coming.

    Good to see that liberals on both sides of the Atlantic share the same view of their role – suppress the domestic population by any means possible while appeasing everyone else in the hope that they’ll look good on the world stage.
    This is a Tony Blair tactic – go after unfriendly media outlets and reportes with everything you’ve got, and reward the faithful with access to the inner circle. Once the press is supine, the British experience shows that the ‘liberal’ government will likely take a Stalinist turn and begin a wider campaign of oppression against the general population. Exaggeration? Paranoia? Not really, the Blair government introduced a new piece of criminal legislation once every three days on average. It’s now a criminal offence to import a grey squirrell, to leave the lights in your house on at night, to allow the car to idle when parked. Object to this and face the prospect of 42 days in jail without charge. Habeas corpus meets Franz Kafka.
    Go ahead and vote for Obama if you want, America, but heed the warning of the British people under Tony Blair.
