Why We Need Noel Sheppard

The incomparable Noel Sheppard of the Media Research Center's NewsBusters site is dealing with some scary health issues. That makes this an excellent time to consider the great work the guy does.

We are living at a time when our freedoms, our Constitution and our economic well-being are under attack by statists. This is not a rare occurrence. In fact, it's a constant throughout history. Liberty is the exception not the rule. But after a century that proved the efficacy of free markets and free minds beyond a shadow of a doubt, a resurgence of these pests in the form of the disastrous Obama administration would not have been possible if it weren't for the ideological corruption of the news media. In order to promote tyranny by their political allies, the vast Democrat majority of the American news media have now transformed themselves into professional liars — liars by omission and false emphasis as often as by commission, but liars nonetheless.

The American news media have become the enemy of the American people and of the American people's power to self govern. Those who oppose the media are modern Minute Men battling an Empire of Lies. Noel Sheppard's among the best of them.
