Why they aren't covering ACORN scandal

From Columbia Conservative Examiner
Anthony G. Martin By Anthony G. Martin September 20, 3:45 PM One of the biggest stories of the decade--the ACORN scandal--is not being covered by the state-run media (SRM) on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, or CNBC. You won't find it on the front page of the New York Times or the Washington Post. You will see no full-page blasts of the story on the front covers of Time or Newsweek. In fact, the only major news outlet that is providing a steady supply of updated information on the ever-growing scandal is Fox News, the network that broke the story due to the relentless investigative journalism of Glen Beck, who provided a platform from which the 2 courageous young people who went undercover to get the goods could report their findings. Why is it, then, that the former 'mainstream media,' to which I now refer as the 'state-run media' due to their gleeful cheerleading for Obama and refusal to report anything negative about the 'Dear Leader,' refuse to run the story of the young undercover investigators who discovered that ACORN is not only a fraudulent front-group for the get-out-the-vote drive for Obama but an American outpost for the illegal overseas prostitution trade. Girls as young as 13 years of age are involved. Under normal circumstances, such a story would be headline news for weeks if not months as outlet after outlet, including all of the major newspapers, would be delving into the background of corruption that runs through ACORN, and, President Obama's open and obvious longterm relationship with the organization. But these are not normal circumstances. The mainstream media has abdicated its first responsibility in a free society to be a watchdog of government. Instead it is now a Pravda, blindly following the orders of a President with an emperor complex. In that sense it is truly the 'state-run media.' [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
