The lunatic left tried, and is trying to define what a “journalist” is. They’re doing this in order to limit the flow of information. They wish to be the gate keepers. They’ve attacked in various media outlets, and have attacked in our legal system. Right now, there is a bill before congress which attempts to define journalism so as to limit our First Amendment protections to only “journalists” as defined by the statists.
I was well aware of these efforts prior to this exchange, but, this drove it home. Watch
This was one of the few times I was actually watching TV when this aired. Juan declares himself as a “real reporter”, unlike Michelle, who only serves to inform us. If I want to know what Juan Williams is going to say, I’ll ask Jay Carney.
Andrew Breitbart? There’s nothing I can say other than here is just one small part of his legacy ….. http://www.breitbart.com/
Contrast and compare Breitbart and Michelle Malkin to this “real” journalist.
Georgia has 14 congressional districts, and none of them are represented by someone named Steve Smith.
I don’t know how history will reflect on those two, Michelle and Andrew. I know how I will. They were and Malkin is, both pioneers and giants in journalism, and modern media. We’re more informed, today, because of both of them. Our society is a better place because of them. And, God willing, long after both are gone from our immediate memories.
Journalism is an act, not some club you hope to be allowed into. If my talent for journalism, which I don’t always engage in, was as low as what most professed “journalists” today, I’d never blog again. Their partiality shames my advocate blog, their intellectual vacancy shames humanity.
