Boiling Frogs Post Covers “What Lies Beneath

PeterLanceEndorsementIn the last thirty-five years since I’ve worked as an investigative reporter, the “main stream media” (the MSM) has become increasingly narrow in its focus.  While liberal-bashing critics like Bernard Goldberg and Ann Coulter insist that the press is manipulated and controlled by the left, most of the MSM assignment editors use the uber-right, Obama-hating Drudge Report as their home page.

So, just as on Capitol Hill, we’re left with coverage on the extremes or a bland kind of surface gloss of the headlines. The news magazines of what used to be the three major networks: 48 Hours, Dateline and my alma mater 20/20 are filled with safe “true crime” stories vs. the kind of rip-the-lid-off the scandal-of-the-week brand of journalism practiced in the late 1980’s when I was at ABC News.

The province of the investigative reporter is “what lies beneath;” that region below the surface; beyond the major headlines and talking heads. It’s our stock and trade to cover that part of reality that often causes “we the people,” the most harm. Remember, it was the 7/8ths of the iceberg below the surface that sunk The Titanic.

That’s the area where I live and work and I’m happy and honored to say that, from time to time I’ll be reporting my findings here. But to keep Sibel Edmond’s incredibly valuable site up and running, it takes contributions. So please support boilingfrogspost.com

  1. American MSM outlets stopped reporting news long ago. They’re now an enhanced version of “Entertainment Tonight” producing brain candy for the feeble-minded and gullible.

    We have been conditioned to think that reports about the Hollywood blonde bimbo du jour and non-stop coverage of sports spectacles are ‘news.’
    Along with the occasional reporting of some child kidnapping. If they were truly interested in kids get abducted, they’d look into and stick with the story about the 15,000 or so kids that disappear each year and not run 24/7 with some heart-wrenching story about ONE kid.

    All that slop is designed to turn our brains and critical thinking facility into mush, so we can be blindly led into one Imperial adventure after another and gladly hand over our kids to be killed and our wallets to be plundered.

  2. Yep, and it’s been in the works for a long time Greg. Did you ever see “Network” with Peter Finch? This trend was beginning in the 1970s. That is why it is important to support alternative media, and REAL alternative media- not just the Democratic Party cheerleading type!

  3. It would be wonderful if the side documented by Peter Lance in his book Triple Cross could be brought forward. The 9-11 truthers said they had Sibel’s back on this one.

    New York, Court Brace for Logistical Hurdles
    Wall Street Journal – Suzanne Sataline – ‎43 minutes ago‎
    The federal trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-defendants is expected to be one of the costliest cases tried in New York City, with security precautions that will likely exceed previous high-profile terror and mobster …

  4. Here’s another view of our MSM. I’ve heard lots of people in the U.K. and other parts of Europe say how amazed they are by the MSM here. Everywhere you look it’s the Ken and Barbie News Hour (complete with totally pointless happy talk). Nobody looks or sounds like a real person.

    Meanwhile in Europe, people have actual opinions and debate. In France, a presidential debate is 2 candidates, a moderator. And no studio audience. Even if it’s a state-run channel, many times at least they seem like a real person.
