Question the Collaborationist Media

By Rick Pearcey • June 8, 2009, 06:27 AM

CBS apparently thinks it's OK to question God but not to question Obama. Joseph Farah of WND wonders what the collaborationist media is up to. Actually, the human thing to do, as well as the Biblical and journalistic thing to do, is to "test everything."

But what are the "Collaborationist Media"? As I noted in this space June 3, Collaborationist Media are "organs of ideology and propaganda in the service of forces at odds with the DNA of the American Experiment in liberty."

The Collaborationist Press is philosophically challenged. It has:

Forgotten that freedom does not grow on trees or crawl out of the ocean. [It has rejected in principle] the Founders' hard-won understanding that human dignity and freedom are rooted in a real and knowable Creator. His structured creation -- which we recognize as the objective cosmos -- is what makes possible the rational investigation and empirical discovery of both science and legitimate news gathering in the first place. It also makes possible the separation of a religiously privatized "faith" (secular or otherwise) from the concrete and epistemologically assured information, truth content, and authenticity available in the Judeo-Christian worldview. 

The Collaborationist Press has rejected that worldview which gives an adequate basis for "fair and balanced" reporting. It is of little surprise, therefore, that so many journalists now find themselves goosestep-slobbering more and more deeply into political passions, relativistic subjectivities, group think that would make cult members blush, and obedience to correlations of raw power at particular moments in history. 

This is the true crisis in journalism today. What is needed to counter this is not a journalism passionately devoted to "conservatism" or some other "ism." What is needed is a journalism passionately committed to objective truth. "Vichy" journalism in Nazi-occupied France was a contradiction in terms in WWII Europe, and it is a contradiction in terms in America today. A journalism of resistance rooted in truth will win the hearts of Americans and help set us free again.
