Newswire Refuses Kenya Birth Article

Have you ever heard about the bias of the mainstream news media?  Just about everybody has, which explains why journalism was recently ranked as one of America’s least trusted professions.  I’d like to let you in on a dirty little secret.  That bias goes deeper than just the big TV networks, newspapers and magazines.  

Alternative news sources like CleanTV, rely on a variety of means to impact our ever expanding audience.  One such avenue is press release distribution services such as PRNewswire.com.  Here’s what it says on their website:

“Whether you're promoting a new product, announcing an organizational change or launching a new marketing campaign, you can leverage PR Newswire's distribution network to achieve your objectives. PR Newswire offers distribution solutions for all types of organizations, including small businesses, non-profits, public interest organizations, and enterprise-level companies.”

Sounds promising, right?  What they neglect to say is they don’t want your money if you’re not happy with Obama.  We’ve sent dozens of stories to them in the past, with no problem, but the other day we submitted a news release with an embedded video called Why Do Black Christians Still Vote Obama?  Guess what?  PR Newswire gave us our money back rather than run the material.  And something similar just happened with another distribution service — Prolog.org.

I guess they have a right to refuse a story, but it makes you think. Would a telephone company, for example, be within its rights to refuse phone service to a political party because it favored the other point of view?  I don’t think so.

The deeper question is why are PR Newswire and Prolog.org shying away from doing business with CleanTV?  Is it intolerance, fear, pressure from above?  I don’t know, but I can only guess.

Several times in the last century, the only newspapers that survived in certain countries were those that agreed with the government.  It wasn’t always instant conformity.  In the most insidious cases, it started out as, what we would call today, political correctness.
