A New Jersey court has ruled that bloggers are not journalists (now they’ve taken to the courts to establish this!). New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Judge Anthony J. Parrillo ruled last week that a blogger named Shellee Hale is not a journalist, and so does not enjoy the same protections that journalists do from being forced to reveal their sources.
Actually, this tool of a judge is right. For the most part, journalists today act as shills for the Democrat party. They cover up for the party’s crimes and excesses, obfuscate the effects of its disastrous policies, and propagandize for Obama’s agenda.
In that sense, bloggers are not journalists. The best bloggers aren’t shilling for Obama and Pelosi the way journalists are. Instead, bloggers are doing the heavy lifting. Who breaks the stories today? Bloggers. Take my own blog, AtlasShrugs.com, for example. I broke the explosive story of tens of thousands of dollars of Obama contributions from a Hamas-controlled “refugee” camp in Gaza. Did the “journalists” in the mainstream media pursue this story? Not a chance. Obama’s odd relationship with Kenyan pro-Sharia politician Raila Odinga? Atlas! Not to mention the numerous revelations I broke on the Rifqa Bary story (here and here and here and here), the story of the young Ohio girl who fled from her family in fear for her life after converting from Islam to Christianity.
If I am not a journalist, Anthony Parrillo is not a judge.
And all those stories are just off the top of my head. The corruption is so deep in all branches of the U.S. government, it is jaw-dropping. But the journalists don’t care. They have other priorities. Tops on their list is demonizing the conservative opposition to Barack Obama and the Democrats.
If you suffered through some recent Sunday morning news shows, you may have seen “journalist” David Gregory in a particularly pompous mode, positing yet again that the real threat to America is the threat of one man, one terror attack — that of Timothy McVeigh, well over a decade ago. To hear “journalists” like Gregory tell it, the 15,000 Islamic attacks across the world since 9/11 are the work of an insignificant “fringe.” The actual threat comes from “right-wing extremists.”
