NOT TO BEAT A DEAD HORSE . . . ACCURACY IN THE MEDIA IS EVERYTHING:
Just Because You’re A Pundit (Opinionists) . . . Doesn’t Give Carte Blanche To Be Inaccurate.
LARGE OR SMALL AUDIENCE – TRUTH . . . SHOULD BE OBLIGATORY:
If We Can’t Trust Or Believe Our Sources Of News & Opinion – Who Can We Trust?
I Don’t Watch Much of Fox News Any Longer, as Most of you Probably Know, because Fox News has Morphed Into an Opinion Entertainment Network that Too Often Broadcasts . . . First & Foremost – for Audience & Ratings . . . Rather Than Real News Accuracy.
That Doesn’t Mean I Believe Fox News Is Totally Without Merit – Fox News Has Some Very Good Points, but Too Often, Fox News Projects itself as a Tool for Entertainment.
So . . . Who & What Do I Watch When I’m Not Researching On The Web?
I’ve Taken To Watching More On . . . Newsmax . . . which is Far More About Real Conservative Values, Without the Production Hype, which Fox News has Embraced, and Also Doesn’t Pretend to be One thing, When in Truth, Far Too Often, they are Nothing Like they Pretend to be.
Hollywood Style Presentations, Short Skirts, Long Legs, Contrived Smiles & Glib Retorts Aren’t Substitutes For Reliable Journalism.
Newsmax Is Not Perfect . . . But They Are Indeed A Great Alternative.
But Every Now & Then, I Visit Fox News to See & Hear What they’re Talking About, and to Read their Crawl for Breaking News. Just as I Do with all the Multi-Media I Read, Watch & Subscribe-To.
Just For Your Information & Interest – When I Watch Early Evening Television from 5:00 – 6:00 I Generally Watch Sean Spicer & Lyndsay Keith on Newsmax. From 6:00 – 7:00 I Watch Greta Van Susteren also on Newsmax. And from 7:00 – 8:00, I Watch Rob Schmitt On Newsmax Too, all of which are Serious, Informative & Measured Opinion & News-Shows Without the Fox Hoopla.
PS – If You Can’t Get Newsmax on Cable in the United States of America, or in Canada, Newsmax is Available for Free, Streaming on the Internet at Newsmaxtv.com,
WHY AM I WRITING THIS?
On A Fox News Broadcast Within The Last Week . . . I Was Glancing at “The Five”, that has a Usual List of Anchors. which Features Amongst Several Others . . . Jesse Waters, who Has Gained Substantial Popularity, Especially With His Own Daily Show At 7:00 O’Clock Eastern Time.
So You Would Think . . . that Someone Like Jesse Waters, Who Has a Large Following at Prime Time, would (Should) Get his Facts Right & Accurate, Especially Given his Personal Gravitas, that he should Know that Millions of People are Quick to Believe Water’s Opinions as Fact because of his Media Standing.
ABOUT GEORGE SOROS – WHO IN MY OPINION IS A DESPICABLE MAN:
Waters Stated As Fact . . . That No One in the Media Really Goes after Uber LEFTIST George Soros or his Family, Because George Soros Is Jewish . . . Intimating, That It’s Verboten To Publicly Criticize Jewish People.
I Also just Read from a Print Pundit, Separate from Fox News, at Roughly the Same Time as Waters’ Comment, that George Soros is Given a Gentle Ride in the Media . . . Because George Soros Is A Holocaust Survivor.
MAYBE THIS IS NO BIG DEAL TO MOST PEOPLE – BUT IT’S A HUGE DEAL TO ME!
If A Pundit (Editorialist Like Me) . . . Whether on the Internet, in Print, on Radio or Television with a Trusted Audience . . . He or She Has to Realize that His or Her Words are Extremely Important, to the Point That They Could-Be Personally, Community and or Nationally Injurious.
So . . . When Jesse Waters Says that Soros Can’t be Criticized by the Media Because Soros is Jewish . . . What Is Jesse Waters Really Saying? And What is the Message that is Being Delivered to Waters’ Very Large Audience?
When A Nutjob Like Kanye West . . . Publicly Blamed the Jews, Figuratively, for all the Ills of the Planet, it Didn’t Take More than Seconds for the Jew Haters to Crawl out from Under their Rocks To Give Approbation to West’s Scurrilous Accusations.
So What Should I Say About Jesse Waters Of Fox News . . . Who has a Huge Audience and a Small Army of Researchers & Fact Checkers who Makes a Dreadful Comment that Clearly Implies that Jews Can’t be Criticized, Just Because We’re Jews, While Using George Soros As Waters’ Prime Example.
How Many Millions of Fox Viewers Who Saw & Heard the Anti-Semitic Remarks of Jesse Waters, Walked Away from that Segment on Fox News Believing that Jews Were Beyond Reproach because they’re Jews?
And to Extend from that Canard, Borrowing from Kanye West, that we Jews Control the Banks, Corporations, the Media and all the Other Important things that Make the World Go Around.
What Should They Believe After Watching Waters Make Such An Unrefuted Claim?
I Don’t Have An Army Of Researchers & Fact Checkers . . . It’s Just Me. So How Come I Can Get it Right 99.99% Of The Time? And When I’m in Doubt in Just .01% of the Time . . . I’m Smart Enough To Keep My Mouth Shut & My Opinions To Myself?
TO HELP JESSE WATERS WITH HIS FACTS:
Even Though George Soros Was Born Of Jewish Parents – Soros Does Not Identify As A Jew.
1 – George Soros Aided & Abetted the Seizure of Jewish Property in Hungary, as Fellow Hungarian Jews were Shipped-Off to the Nazi Death Camps.
2 – George Soros Has Publicly Stated that he Had & Has Zero Regrets for his Role in the Seizure of Jewish Property for the Nazis.
3 – George Soros is an Atheist & Does Not Consider Himself to be Jewish.
4 – George Soros is Persona-Non-Grata in Israel and has Routinely Come Out Against Jews and the Jewish State of Israel.
But Why Take My Word For It . . . When You Can Take The Word Of George Soros?
On December 20, 1998 . . . An Arrogant George Soros Gave an Interview on 60-Minutes With Steve Kroft that Explained Who & What Soros Really Is & Was.
To Save You From Watching The Whole 60-Minutes Interview, You Can just Fast Forward to 6-Minutes & 52-Seconds, where George Soros Speaks for Himself.
THIS EDITORIAL IS NOT ABOUT SOROS – IT’S ABOUT YELLOW JOURNALISM:
Even Though . . . This Type Of “Soft” Anti-Semitism On The Behalf Of Jesse Waters Is Inexcusable . . . It Is No Less Excusable or Egregious When any Form of Misinformation is Promulgated by News or Opinion . . . Against Anyone Or Anything, Especially when Disseminated by People we Take Seriously & Trust.
MAYBE WATERS CAN “SAVE THE WORLD” BY KEEPING HIS MOUTH SHOUT:
For Me – Jesse Waters Isn’t Worth A Second Of My Time, since Waters Has Proven that he Either Has a Serious Lack of Judgment, a Lack of Integrity, or his Real Opinion of Jewish People has Been Exposed.
If The Audience Can’t Trust Waters Or Others On This – What Can He Or They Be Trusted-On?
