Aides kept Obama out of loop on IRS
“White house Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and other senior advisors knew in late April that an impending report would likely say the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative groups…”
[(From Page 4, May 21, 2013 Minneapolis Star Tribune) This writer would have preferred to give you the link to that article, but that headline goes to a different article on the topic instead of the actual article.]
This article goes on to say no one told President Barack Obama about this situation.
For those readers blindly loyal to either major political party, you might as well stop reading now as no amount of logic, nor historical reference, is going to change your mind. However, for those of you who believe “The Truth will set you free”, this article should provide a new perspective on politics in America.
Unspinning the Spin
To begin with, the very principles of Journalistic writing embrace the status quo. In Journalism classes they teach that news articles are supposed to be short and without the writer’s commentary. However, the shorter the article, the more the reader is required to “fill in the blanks” from their own experiences. And major media, the education system, government and the two major parties of America have trained citizens to engage in the following perspective of reality:
If someone belonging to the other political party does something wrong, it is extremely bad; If someone from my political party does something wrong, it is not so bad, ok or can be overlooked.
The effect of forcing writers to be brief results in making it very difficult, if not impossible, for writers who strictly adhere to these proffered news journalism rules to effectively challenge status quo thinking. Getting reader’s to “think outside the box” aka “challenge the status quo” takes a lot more words and effort than just writing in a manner that embraces current status quo thinking. More importantly, since major media writers usually rely upon their writings to earn a living, when the boss says “your writing does not follow the rules of news journalism” either they comply, or find themselves looking for a new job. Effectively, major media writers and journalist are censored, without being explicitly told they are being censored.
