The Propaganda Of Michael Brown, the Sickening New York Times and the Spirit of Al Goldstein

After discussing the latest events in Ferguson with Fox News Radio’s Jeff Monosso, WIBC morning host Tony Katz spoke about the protests that have taken place in Indianapolis. The protests are fine, but the signs at the protests expose the power of propaganda. In this case, referring to Michael Brown as a “jaywalker.”

Things get stranger as the New York Times publishes an article that includes the address of Officer Darren Wilson. Isn’t this an invitation to those angry with Wilson to do harm to Wilson? And how does one properly respond to such a failure of journalism? As Tony explains, the spirit of Al Goldstein might hold the answer.

Ferguson is not about race, it’s about facts

WIBC morning host Tony Katz spoke with Reverend Charles Harrison of the Ten Point Coalition of Indianapolis about the rioting in Ferguson and the possible overflow in Indy.

Tony then followed up with a moment of clarity about the decision of the grand jury not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown. To fulfill their narrative, many need this to be about race. As Tony points out, this was never about race. This has always been about the facts.

Indianapolis Star Falls Prey To Censorship Mob Over Immigration Cartoon

The Indianapolis Star made headlines over the weekend after publishing a cartoon from Gary Varvel that highlighted President Obama’s executive action on immigration. After having the cartoon called “racist” from different groups and others, the Star decided to take down the cartoon instead of defending their staff.

The cartoon depicted a family having Thanksgiving dinner, while a latino family climbed through the window to eat with the family. The caption, as stated by the father holding a cooked turkey, reads, “Thanks to the President’s immigration order, we’ll be having extra guests this Thanksgiving.”

The Star apologized for the cartoon, saying “We erred in publishing it.”

As I stated on The Morning News with Tony Katz today, there was no error in publishing it. The issue here is kowtowing to pressure groups and allowing freedom of the press to become even more fragile. Freedom of the press doesn’t exist only when people agree with you. As George Orwell stated, “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”

Tony Katz Hits Obama’s Big Three on Immigration – Dishonesty, Hypocrisy and Racism

WIBC morning radio host Tony Katz exposes three major failings in President Obama’s announcement of his executive action on immigration.

Lawsuits are being threatened, and funding will most likely be curtailed by the incoming Congress. Without much doubt, the GOP controlled House and Senate will continue to find ways to keep Obama’s lawlessness in check.

But the speech was stunning not just in its lawlessness, but in how openly and how brazenly the President abhors the impediment to his desires. In this case, that impediment is the United States Constitution. President Obama finds dishonesty, hypocrisy and racism more than acceptable in moving his ideology right over the stumbling block of the constitution.

Tony can be heard Monday through Friday, 5am ET, on 93.1FM WIBC and WIBC.com.

Six Bills The GOP Can Pass To Drive Obama Crazy

Law professor, columnist and blogger extraordinaire Glenn Reynolds posted this piece in USA Today, offering up six different bills the GOP can place on President Obama’s desk. These bills are designed to make Obama think politically, as they will all have wild support among Americans but will be seen as awful by his base.

Will the GOP take Glenn’s advice? Tony Katz says they should!
