Even Pat Caddell, who worked on the campaigns of liberals McGovern, Carter , Gary Hart, Joe Biden, and Jerry Brown, has had his fill
“When the press becomes an active participant,” [deciding] “what truth you may know as an American and what truth you are not allowed to know. They have then made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and in my opinion, have made themselves the enemy of the American people.”
Listen to the words of former Democrat pollster and analyst Pat Caddell speaking last week at an Accuracy in Media conference, Obamanation: A Day of Truth. In his speech titled, “The Audacity of Corruption” he states, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they have now clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other American heroes in Libya that was lied about for nine days, because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.
“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.

Rush played Caddell clip today on his show. Rush also compared the media silence on this cover-up to the Cindy Sheehan fiasco. At least Caddell is speaking out & I’m sure he is being raked over the coals by the left.
I feel sorry for him. He is of the old school, where your word and integrity meant something. The democrats have long forgot that since the days of Bill Clinton getting, well, under the desk. The Clintons were trailer trash, that many in the media covered for, but this media is down right lying to try and save this Administration. Eleanor Clife said the Benghazi story is made up, where does she get her credentials from Moscow?
A rare honorable Democrat. God bless him!
