Paula Deen has claimed the nation’s news as they report her usage of the N-word years ago, and the companies who have dropped her after her apology. However, one man is wondering why we are diverting the nation’s attention to Paula Deen and not on the tactics of the American Government.
Charlie Daniels the man who played the fiddle and sang the hit song, “The Devil went Down to Georgia” has a lot to say on the matter. In fact, he wrote a blog post on the way that the media centers their attention on Paula, instead of the big picture about our country.
Charlie said, “I think that if anything exemplifies the overt prejudice and determination of the American media to report only the news that suits their social and political interests and concept of what does and does not fit their agenda, it’s the totally overblown coverage of something Paula Deen said 20 years ago, and some party she planned that she wanted to resemble a plantation scene featuring black male waiters in period dress.
Charlie Daniels calls attention to the fact that the media is not reporting real headline news, or when it does, that news is buried. He lists many news-worthy stories that Americans should be aware of, but aren’t because the media hides the truth or leaves it unreported.
“The lie an Attorney General told Congress, or officials at the IRS usurping the rights of the American public and pleading the fifth amendment when confronted about it or the hiding of the facts surrounding the murder of four Americans at a Consulate in Libya or the incredibly shabby image of a president taking a one hundred million dollar vacation in this economy while closing down tours of the White House or the NSA invasion on the privacy of millions of unsuspecting citizens?”
Charlie sums it up in two sentences, “The news is not about news anymore. It’s about protecting some people, destroying others and shoving a socialist agenda down the collective throats of America.”
Why does the American media center on fluff news and not the real issues that our country is facing or does that puts citizens in jeopardy. Charlie Daniels asks some tough questions that the American media should be investigating and/or reporting on instead of the things that Paula Deen said years ago.
Do my readers have any thoughts on this? Shouldn’t the countries news people focus on what our country is doing and not what Hollywood or a celebrity is doing? Shouldn’t the two be separate like it is here on the Examiner?
