Univision's Jorge Ramos was presented the Burton Benjamin Memorial Award for "lifetime achievement in defending press freedom" Tuesday at the 2014 Committee to Protect Journalists International Press Freedom Awards.

During his speech before the group of journalists and media executives, Ramos made the case for journalists to drop the facade of impartiality and to use their voices and influence not just to inform but as activists to change policy:

"The best of journalism happens when we take a stand: when we question those who are in power, when we confront the politicians who abuse their authority, when we denounce an injustice," Ramos said. "The best of journalism happens when we side with the victims, with the most vulnerable, with those who have no rights. The best of journalism happens when we, purposely, stop pretending that we are neutral and recognize that we have a moral obligation to tell truth to power."

The Huffington Post reports that the journalist many consider to be one of the most influential in America used the Iraq war as an example of what journalists should do with their power:

"Sadly, we stayed silent before the war in Iraq and thousands of American soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraq civilians died unnecessarily," he continued. "We have to learn from that. Silence is the worst sin in journalism. But the best is when journalism becomes a way of doing justice and speaking truth to power."

Ramos pointed to a quote by the great Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel to bring his point home: “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.”

"Stop pretending we're neutral." Huh? Pretend?  "The best of journalism happens when we side with the victims." Huh? "Sadly, we stayed silent before the war in Iraq and thousands of American soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraq civilians died unnecessarily" Huh? Where have we heard that crap before? Oh, right.
“The Communists Marx and Engels” Engels described the tasks of party journalism, noting that it ought “first of all to hold discussions, support, develop, and defend the demands of the party, and reject and refute the pretentions and assertions of the opposing party” (Marx and Engels, Soch., 2nd ed., vol. 4, p. 271).

 Jorge Ramos; another psycho-babbling Marxist, preaching to the choir.  But, wait.  Maybe  Horgay knows that since the advent of Murrow-Cronkite Cold War journalism, using mass media to advance leftist ideas have dominated.  And, he takes issue only with their continued pretense of presenting both sides?  That's it. He's likes his totalitarian tea without sweetener.

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

Thanks for watching TV so I don't have to. I'm off to buy melons — and an iPhone — if they're ripe.

We've discussed the sh*t stain Conkite *spit* and the millions who died because he lied and we pulled out of SE Asia. Then Woodward and Burnstein, drunk on fame, inspired journalists to be advocates. We are seeing the progression. It explains why Fox is number 1.
