Two days before the State of the Union speech to be delivered by the President of the United States, that same president was charged with abuse of power by a news-making senator.
It was the kind of statement that news organizations once craved because such controversy helped them sell interest in their shows and gain them revenue.
But what would one expect from a "news" organization whose purpose was not to gin up interest in its shows but rather to promote another agenda even apparently more important than their revenue generated by viewership? You'd expect them to edit out the controversy.
Well, here are the facts of two videos. (You may want to save this page so you will have a record when the originals are dumped down the memory hole.) The first is what was extracted by CBS's Face the Nation when Bob Shieffer interviewed Senator Ted Cruz on Sunday Jan 26 2104.
What was edited out.
What was aired instead.

(Well maybe Newsbusters will be able to keep its version alive and safe of the memory hole for a while, so here is the link to them: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jeffrey-meyer/2014/01/26/face-nation-edits-out-senator-cruz-condemning-obama-s-abuse-power#ixzz2rZ167RcB )
It is blatantly obvious that CBS is trying to shield President Obama 2 days before his big speech. It, like Pravda and Izvestia before it, knows no shame when it comes to marching to the demands of the Party. MSM continues to live up to the Soviet-Style Media label. I do not recall what the major news organ was for the Nazis, but I'm sure it was little different from the Soviets, only it lived a shorter time.
An SSM living a shorter time. Has a nice ring to it, no?
What does Dr. Evil think of CBS News?
