Well that didn’t take long.
Following a bad week of public relations for Oprah Winfrey, the black liberal media establishment jumped in head first to defend the bitter billionaire.
The Oprah incident exposes how the black media propaganda machine manipulates the news to keep blacks trapped on the liberal plantation.
Writing for The Daily Beast, Jamelle Bouie’s commentary, “Oprah Winfrey Makes Mild Race Comment, Fox News Backlash Ensues,” seeks to minimize and justify Oprah’s race charged comments.
As the title suggests, Oprah’s remarks were deemed mild and shifts blame to Fox News. Artfully, Bouie restricts his analysis to Oprah’s remarks about President Obama being disrespected because he is black while avoiding her harshest statements.
To me, it’s clear what Winfrey is referencing. She’s pointing to a specific kind of disrespect, one that dismisses Obama as unworthy of the office, and does so in language that is racially suspect. Arguably, “you lie” is one of those things, even if it’s impossible to know Rep. Joe Wilson’s motivations. That the first black president is also the first to have his State of the Union address interrupted is significant, Wilson’s intent regardless.
Notice that Bouie conveniently ignored Oprah’s most outrageous comments reported by Newsbusters.com:
There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.
Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their skin, because of the color of their black skin? Yes.
MSNBC’s The Grio takes a slightly different slant. The story, “Oprah Winfrey’s ‘old racists’ remark creates firestorm with conservatives,” mentions Oprah’s comment about southerners “just have to die” but it ignores any discussion about those words.
Rather than discuss Oprah’s extreme view about the need for southern whites to die to end racism or that blacks are still being terrorized, The Grio focuses its attention on the white conservative commentators that were critical of her.
The story zeros in on conservative commentators that reacted to Oprah’s remarks – Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity.
The article specifically targets Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s use of an ad for a segment on Oprah:
And Sean Hannity featured Oprah’s quote and image in an ominous ad which appears to make her look threatening…
In effect, these articles reinforce the preexisting bias in the black community that Fox News and conservatives are the problem while transforming Oprah into a victim.
By manipulating how the news is covered the average black reader is being denied a full and fair evaluation of the truth.
The success of this type of propaganda is apparent by reading the comment section of The Grio story. It was filled with emotionally laden anti-tea party and anti-conservative messages from readers.
The black media echo chamber is one reason why the black community is resistant to conservative politicians and vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.
