From my old website, Free Kentucky.
Re-titled: There's no such thing as an unbiased reporter
published sometime in the year 2000, found here.

Why Free Kentucky?
by Barry Bright, Free Kentucky web author

A few years ago when I graduated college with my fresh degree in print journalism I read The Courier Journal and other mainstream newspapers like they were gospel.

I watched the evening news and other televised news outlets and listened intently to radio news reports with the innocence of a child waiting for Santa Claus or the tooth fairy.

But over time, with more and more exposure to life in the real world, I lost my belief in red-suited gift bearers, fairies, and the mainstream newsmedia.

My distrust began to build in the early 90s when I listened to James Squires, a former editor of the Chicago Tribune and author of "Read All About It, The Corporate Takeover of America's Newspapers." Squires told us that at that time only about three percent of large American daily newspapers were still privately owned and that most of what is published in all newspapers is "distortion."

In his book he decries the loss of control by key newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post of the information flow. These newspapers once set the tone for "coverage" with most other large dailies following their lead. This has changed with the introduction and growth of the electronic media such as television. The TV news programs, absurdly short for a world as complex as ours, and now mostly designed to entertain rather than inform, now often set the tone of what is "news."

Of course local ownership is no guarantee of an "unbiased" report. My own experience has proven that there is no such thing as an "unbiased reporter" despite what they teach in journalism school. It's just not humanly possible for a person's values, belief system, education, ignorance, irrational fears, political leanings or perception of reality not to influence how he covers or reports the news.

What most people don't understand is the power the newsmedia wields by simply ignoring, often purposefully, certain issues or facets of important issues.

The international corporations that own many of our nation's newspapers influence our political process in two ways: with the printed and televised word and with huge donations to the Democratic and Republican parties.

These same foreign-owned newspapers, often staffed by Marxists, can endorse whatever candidate they please and cover elections in whatever way they please and then support or oppose any legislation they please. As most communities and states have only two-three major publications at best, they cannot begin to claim to represent the individual's "freedom of speech" acknowledged by the First Amendment. They stifle rather than encourage free speech. Most of them hide behind and mock the first Amendment while pretending to uphold it.

Even a well-known "conservative" newspaper, The Washington Times, is owned by a foreign investor, the Korean-based Unification Church.

The newsmedia in times past has been used, and its owners have used their own power, to start, win and end wars.

But the best evidence that the modern mainstream newsmedia deserves our distrust comes form the mouths of its own practitioners.

When the internet comes to its full fruition it will equal if not exceed the importance of the printing press in the difference it will make in the dissemination of information. And like the printing press, it is already angering those who arrogantly believe it is their place to tell the common people what to think.

This was made plain in a statement by mainstream newswhore Doyle McManus, Washington bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times. During a discussion on a PBS newscast about the internet's affect on the information flow he said:

"We no longer have a choice about what we keep out of the public view."

How could the arrogance of the mainstream newswhores possibly shine more brightly than in that simple statement?

They should never have had a "choice" in the first place.

Choosing the mainstream news-distorters as an information source is the same as choosing ignorance. Choose ignorance long enough and eventually you have no choice.

It's time we all grow up and reject the myth of a Free Press in America. As has been often said: "Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one."

"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." - The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)

It's time to bring back the old saying: "Better dead than red."
Only we need to apply it to Amerika's reds.


Watch to see what we should be teaching kids
to do to "Liberals" so they'll actually
have a future in a free country:

"No small shot gun, during my residence of seven years of war in America, was ever kept in the house of a backwoodsman. You will often see a boy not over ten years of age driving the cattle home, but not without a rifle on his shoulder; they never stir out on any business, or on a journey without their rifles. Practice from their infancy, teaches them all distances…

 "I never in my life saw better rifles (or men who shot better) than those made in America. They are chiefly made in Lancaster, and two or three neighboring towns in that vicinity in Pennsylvania. The barrels weigh about six pounds two or three ounces and carry a ball no larger than thirty-six to the pound; at least I never saw one of a larger caliber, and I have seen many hundreds and hundreds." - Colonel George Hanger, captain of a Hessian Jager corps of the American Revolution, as quoted in Muzzleloader Magazine's 'The Book of Buckskinning.'

“A well-grown boy, at the age of twelve or thirteen years, was furnished with a small rifle and shot pouch. He then became a fort soldier and had his port hole assigned to him. Hunting squirrels, turkeys and raccoons soon made him an expert in the use of his gun.” – Dr. Joseph Doddridge, in his 1824 book ‘Notes on the Settlement and Indian Wars,’ quoted in Michael Edward Nogays book ‘Every Home a Fort, Every Man a Warrior’

Wouldn't the freaks freak out if we started teaching young men and women what they are going to be forced to know some day because their parents sat on their asses and pretended Liberty could be won back with 'peace and love.?

What a pathetic lot we amerikans are. Especially the peace nicks in the so-called Liberty movement who are mimicking the commie insurrectionists of the 'anti-war'(pro-commie) movement of the 1960s whose real goal was to pacify their enemies so they wouldn't fight back. They apparently succeeded.

Our civilization has been taken from mindless aggression to mindless pacifism. The latter is the most dangerous by far. We must put knowledge of our most basic right, that of self-defense, back into the hands and minds of the young, or they are doomed to be mindless pacified slaves, and most importantly 'victims' who can be used as pawns by those who seek to maintain their power over us all.

"Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom." - John Adams, Defense of the Constitutions, 1787

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." - Richard Henry Lee (1732-1794) Founding Father

Start them young, train them well, for you know not what they may have to do...

They're so cute, couldn't resist posting this. With the right parenting they won't grow up to be mindless pacified sheeple willing to bend over for their would-be bosses, whether in the government or at their place of employment. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6 KJV

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

Folk music records what Vermonters responded to British soldiers who would impose their will upon them:
"Why come ye hither, Redcoats? Your mind what madness fills? For there’s danger in our valleys and there’s danger on our hills. Why hear ye not the singing of the bugle wild and free? Full soon you’ll hear the ringing of the rifle from the tree! For the rifle, for the rifle: in our hands shall prove no trifle."

"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason."
- Thomas Paine, the first paragraph of his Pamphlet, “Common Sense.”

Would you sign? Or step out your door to an uncertain fate?

April 19 needs to be our biggest holiday. That was the day they left their homes, went to face government employees and shot back. That took more courage than signing a piece of paper. It will have to be done again. Don't understand? Start here.

It will have to be done again.

If you sit home waiting your turn you deserve to have your gun taken from your cold dead hands.

The Founders didn’t wait for the Brits to knock down their doors. They gathered at the green and stood up like men and they killed government employees all the way back to Boston.

What will you do when it’s time to hunt NWO hacks, republicrats and commies(“Liberals” and ‘progressives’)?
