In recent remarks to an AIM conference, ‘ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,’ former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, ‘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 had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers. 
Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic death of a U.S. ambassador 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.’
Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but ‘It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know."

H/t Grumpy Opinions.  
Powerful speech that one can only pray hits home.  Oh screw, home.  Let us hope the truth slams the media in the gut, as it should.
Finally, someone in the ugly world of journalism is taking the bull by the horns and calling the media out for their betrayal of Americans, country, freedom and journalism.
Although there are moments when I do not agree with Caddell, on this, he got it right.  Caddell nailed it.  Of course, one should expect the White House and its media puppets to deny it all.  Oh yes, and to lie.
