John Ziegler’s film Media Malpractice – How Obama Got Elected is finally getting the attention it deserves, mainly through the Internet blogosphere. The film exposes the morally bankrupt mainstream media (MSM) for the shameful role it played in having Barack Obama elected as U.S. President.

Many of the contributors to Canada Free Press have been warning for several years that the MSM in both the United States and Canada have abandoned any pretense of unbiased reporting in favor of political activism and propaganda.

What Media Malpractice does is tie it all together in a neat package using the MSM’s own words and images to expose them for what they are, namely liars, duplicitous cowards and ridicule to destroy their victims, ostensibly under the guise of news coverage. If I still worked in that industry I would be profoundly ashamed and embarrassed to call myself a journalist at any level.

The strange thing is it was obvious to me and many others that the public should have been aware of the blatant MSM attack campaign against Sarah Palin and candidates not anointed by them. Most chose to ignore the abuse or dismiss it as inconsequential or even justified. The result? They got the government they deserved.

I have only seen what happened at the national MSM level. There are several layers of media below them at the state, regional and local level whose misdeeds do not attract much attention. I suspect the bandwagon journalism ran much deeper than the film depicts.

Naturally the MSM are studiously ignoring the release of Ziegler’s film (surprise, surprise) although he did appear on CNN’s Parker/Spitzer show on Nov. 11.

Co-host Kathleen Parker spent most of the segment defending herself from Ziegler’s contention that she had been duped by Obama. She claimed in response that she actually led the media assassination of Sarah Palin during the 2008 election campaign.

Now that’s something of which to brag by someone wearing the mantle of a journalist. It doesn’t get much more pathetic than that. And what does that say about CNN as a whole?

Meanwhile if you want to see the shallowest newscasts in the world by the cheesiest bobble-heads on TV just go the CNN’s sister network HLN. A word of warning. Don’t go there if you dislike being yelled at by over-emoting hosts and news readers.

Fortunately, Ziegler’s film does not have to rely on the likes of CNN and the rest of the MSM for exposure. Social networking sites like YouTube and Facebook are more than picking up the slack along with blogs such as Small Dead Animals and other posts over the Internet.

The MSM believe their audiences are illiterate, gullible and stupid. This explains why they choose to ignore this blot on their once respected reputation. They think Ziegler and others like him will go away so they can get back to business as usual. They will be disappointed as this story has legs and it will not stop here.

The MSM will not escape the consequences from its audiences for its fraudulent reporting. A growing number of viewers and readers now know they were misled, lied to and duped into thinking Obama was the Messiah.

It is they who will write the last words in the MSM’s obituary.
