A friend of mine on Conservative Report Online just started a campaign to hit back at the media and he needs your help through tweets and facebook shares! Greg Howard has created a hashtag on twitter called #OpSLAM and it’s taken off like a rocket! He’s also written a piece which I decided to excerpt below. You can find the rest at the link located after the excerpt.
Media in the United States enjoys special privilege and protection under the First Amendment to the Constitution. Our Founders, in their timeless wisdom, knew the value of a press, free of government interference, serving as a watchdog and keeping the public informed. The vision was that a free press would serve to both inform the public and to serve as an additional check on the power of government.
It is time we strip them of this power. It is not rightfully theirs. This power belongs with the American people. The press was never intended to determine the course of American history, but to report it as it occurred.
It is time, we, the people of the United States, who still believe that the truth about our government and its actions is the most important role of the press stop the press from its continued corruption of America.
