Sunday, June 10, 2007


Dateline - Friday June 8, 2007 - Defense Secretary Robert Gates announces the retirement of General Peter Pace Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Noting that Congressional members commented that re-nominating him at the end of his term in September would be contentious in hearings not because of the man but because of the politics of the war.

Admiral Michael Mullen nominated to replace General Pace as Chairman

Syria possibly massing military on border with Israel in a move to re-take the Golan Heights

G8 summit ends following discussions that were reminiscent of the Cold War between The United States and Russia

Senate Immigration Bill fails cloture vote and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tables the bill possibly marking the end of immigration legislation until at least next year.

These are just a few of the major news headlines that took place on Friday June 8, 2007. Why do I note these headlines ? Because most of them did not make more than a passing mention during the news cycle of that day.

Just the announced retirement of General Pace alone would have perhaps dominated the news on any other day but not Friday June 8, 2007. Why ? Why did the nation nor the world for that matter take notice of such important news taking place in the world ?

Spoiled rich Hilton Hotel heiress Paris Hilton was picked up by a squad car, handcuffed and carted back to court to finish her jail sentence for a DUI charge which resulted in her license being suspended, which resulted in two more arrests for driving with a suspended license, which then resulted in her initial jail sentence, in which she cried and whined and moaned and claimed being on the verge of a medical breakdown causing the Sheriff to send her home to get the spoiled brat out of his hair!

SO WHAT ! But the so what factor did not control the news cycle for Friday June 8, 2007. Paris Hilton did. Everywhere one looked on that day whether FOX, CNN, MSNBC, the Evening News Broadcast of ABC, NBC and CBS. News sites on the web, even the half hourly radio news breaks it was all Paris Hilton all the time.

Either the world has lost its collective mind choosing to want to know the frenzied tabloid news about a spoiled brat who was receiving her just rewards for thinking she could get away with anything because of her name, OR the press no longer cares about real news, true and hard investigative news, news that actually matters .

Actually it is a combination of both. News organizations, and yes as much as I enjoy FOX News who are also guilty of this, maybe not as much as some but still guilty, choose , "Tabloid Journalism," over tough hard hitting, dig deep, search the files, contact the sources, seeking the truth journalism that finds real news and honest reporting.

Seeking a quick headline, a memorable sound bite or a ratings coup news has now become a daily regurgitation of following the stars, quick blurbs to fit the 24/7 news cycle and stories that look for an audience that rather than making conclusions based on real hard and true facts, is looking for a , "quick news fix, " that faintly brushes the truth, tells only a portion of the story or as was the case on June 8th, follows the disgusting antics of Celebutards whose only reality is deciding what expensive car their driver will chauffer them in today.

Even when reporters actually report the, "hard news, " they report it in a manner that rather than giving an objective unbiased investigative report, looks to create a memorable sound bite or a quick byline that in most cases follow a particular political agenda or idea.

While the mainstream media is quick to condemn , "Tabloids, " like The National Enquirer, Star or other such grocery store newspapers, most media outlets whether Cable or Broadcast News, Radio or Internet have become nothing more than glorified, "tabloids, " themselves. Reporting fluff, partial truths or just plain non-newsworthy items just to acquire ratings or a perceived audience.

Part of the blame falls on the public. The majority of , "news, " seekers are no longer interested in complete reporting, or hard news but rather in what is happening with their favorite star or sports personality and when they show even a small interest in , "real news, " they want only a quick blurb and not the full honest and unbiased story.

Who can blame them ? This is the type of reporting that most of the public have been trained over the last several to expect and as a result seek as they look for their news on a daily basis. The quick sound bite, the partial story, the agenda based reporting all have turned news into nothing more than a 24/7, " Entertainment Tonight, " with a dash of hard news sound bites thrown in occasionally as was the case all day on June 8th.

There are a few solid investigative new shows or sites scattered on the tube and the web but unfortunately only hard core news junkies or those like bloggers who research for self education actually pay any attention to this type of real reporting.

This has created an uninformed public that only accepts partial truths in reporting and quick news bites or tabloid journalism as their only source to make decisions on voting or how they perceive current issues. Rather than taking the necessary time to become thoroughly informed most of the public in our fast food oriented world cannot even tell who their Senators are and many do not know who the Vice President of The United States is.

This disinformation reporting, tabloid news as we witnessed with Paris Hilton and the general lack of knowledge by the voting public has helped in a very real sense in allowing Washington to have a real controlling power from the Federal Government that was never intended by The Founding Fathers when this country was born. We the People as a whole would rather know what Tom Cruise or Paris Hilton are doing than in what our Representatives are legislating in Washington.

Most of the nation would rather take the sound bite word of tabloid journalists than find out what is really happening in the war, their Congress, The United Nations or any other government entity or issue that we face today.

When we as the people of The United States speak Washington still listens as proven by the failure of the Senate Immigration Bill which died mostly as a result of amendments that were being tagged to the bill by Senators who were seeking change in the legislation because of the outcry from their constituents.

This very fact is why days like Friday June 8, 2007, Paris Hilton day in the news, have slowly and surely contributed to the dumbing down of America and the rise of an all powerful and consuming Federal Government. We are disconnected with our representation because most do not care to find out what they are doing. The media does not care to report the whole truth or to only follow their particular agenda.

The sad truth is that if George Washington and the other great men who founded our nation were to see who and what we have become they would in their own good conscience begin a second American Revolution to bring real freedom and liberty back TO THE PEOPLE!

That's why most people have turned to the Internet for information about what is going on out there.

All of the MSM have gone to hell, Fox news included.

For a bit of Paris humor, I wrote a fun post on my blog about Paris Hilton…stop by and check it out:

I read an article this morning which left me suspicious, wondering whether Paris Hilton’s incarceration hoopla is actually part of a brilliant publicity stunt orchestrated by her father and others in the Hilton Hotels empire.

Published Thursday in USA TODAY under the headline, Jailhouses rock as overnight lodging, the article opens with the question, "Is going to jail cool?" -- an obvious reference to Paris Hilton's headline-grabbing in-and-out stints at the Los Angeles County Jail. The answer to the question came in the form of a pithy piece introducing readers to a trendy new adventure known as jailhouse lodging.

I didn't make it past the article's lead paragraph before THE question popped into my mind:

Could it be that the Hilton family is planning to buy the Los Angeles County detention center known as the Twin Towers, rename it The Paris Hilton and convert it into a trendy new jailhouse hotel?

Certainly, it's not beyond anyone's imagination in today's "Top This!" environment that The Paris Hilton would serve as the flagship property of a new jail-house arm of the worldwide lodging chain.

The lockup's cafeteria could be converted into a chic night spot. The medical/psychiatric section could become a posh celebrity rehab center for folks like Britney Spears, Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan and other so-called "Hollywood stars" to get away from it all after having "one too many" in public. In reality, the possibilities for expansion are endless as cash-strapped city, county and state governments face growing prison populations that require new and improved facilities, the likes of which Hilton money could surely buy!

Keep your eyes on this one folks...and, remember, you read about it first at Bob McCarty Writes™

"The Paris Hilton" eh? LOL! I wouldn't put anything past liberals.

You're right, Ken. I've been dismayed about all the publicity she is getting because there are so many more important things to spend the air time on, as you so eloquently pointed out. The media, including Fox News, seems to absolutely love this sort of crap, and that's exactly what it is. It certainly isn't responsible journalism in any way, shape or form.
