NBC's David Gregory makes matters worse.... claims press has power & authority to act as a "proxy" for the American people....
Proxy is defined as : substitute; alternative; alternate; stand-in; surrogate; replacement. Did any of you American voters out there authorize or give power to the unelected David Gregory or any other unelected political press hacks in the liberal elite mainstream media to substitute their voice and will for yours? I most certainly did not.
Sooooo...., in effect, the arrogant Mr. Gregory has stated that he believes he and the rest of the MSM have the right to turn the democratic process on its head and nullify the already-expressed will of the people---at the ballot box---to elect the President and the members of the U.S. Congress who represent them.
That is absolutely chilling.... as is the mainstream media's abusive habit of controlling---through institutionalized filtering and censorship---what "we the people" need to or get to see, read or hear. A truly socialist, anti-democratic principle.... and pilfering of power from the people and their elected representatives.
Americans everywhere should exercise their freedoms of expression to let self-appointed "proxy" David Gregory and his other self-absorbed, self-important, presumptious colleagues know that they are well able to speak for themselves---without any help whatsoever from him and the rest of the MSM.
Check out "NBC's Gregory Eats Crow," which is published here, and the short excerpt posted below:
"....in a comment that once again revealed how remote the Washington media has become from the American people, he made the astounding comment that "No matter how you feel about the White House press corps -— and we’re worthy of criticism, and we can take our lumps —- this is about how the vice president chooses to communicate to the American people. We are a proxy for the American people.
"Whether you have faith in us or not, and we do make mistakes, we are still a proxy...."
