CBS insider Bernard Goldberg, in his book "Bias," compared the "media elite" to the "old Soviet Union" dictators as well as to Mafia bosses. The "News Mafia," as Goldberg calls the media, recently let its "reporters” know that the regime will not allow dissidence against its ally, the gay movement. The recent crackdown on dissenters is national, international and regional:
Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts shouted George Will down on ABC's "This Week" because he tried to state that the vast majority of priest sexual abusers are homosexuals. NewsMax writer Phil Brennan reported, "After three or four attempts to get a word in edgewise, Will gave up."
Pope John Paul II's spokesman Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls was greeted with a wave of protest at the Vatican. The Jewish World Review said Navarro-Valls received this greeting because he made the "link between homosexuality and sexual abuse by priests."
Covering the Dallas bishops sex abuse meeting earlier this month, the National Review’s online preview of its July 1 issue said: "I'm hearing from inside press circles that reporters, editors and producers don't want to look at the gay issue. Michael S. Rose, author of "Goodbye, Good Men" [a book on homosexual abuses within the Church] is in Dallas. I spoke yesterday to a TV reporter who wants to interview Rose about his findings, but who received word from the top to stay away from him."
These are only a few cases of the mass media’s official suppression of the widely known fact that the vast majority of sexual abusers are homosexuals. Cokie, Sam and their media accomplices are enforcing censorship that echoes memories of Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany.
Before the recent crackdown was solidified, however, U.S. News & World Report columnist John Leo wrote that studies have shown that no more than 5 percent of priests fit the pedophile description. He said, "Most sexual victims of priests are teenage boys [abused in homosexual acts], according to one estimate. A study of Chicago's 2,200 priests identified 40 sexual abusers, only one of whom was a pedophile."
Media Bias at Dallas Bishops Meeting
To get news at the time of the Dallas bishops meeting, reporters had to enter the underground world of homosexual spin organizations through their websites – for example, on June 15, the homosexual "information” group Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation
(GLAAD), through its moles in the Church, reported news that the mass media censored. Writing for GLAAD’s website, homosexual activist Cathy Renna said:
"We also learned more late last night about the anti-gay proposal offered by Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Neb. Bruskewitz's 'Amendment 27' would have stated that because the 'current homosexual culture' was the root cause of the sex-abuse crisis, the bishops would be required to force strict conformity with all Church doctrines on sexuality. His proposal was soundly rejected on a voice vote, with a source inside the meeting telling me that it received only perhaps a half-dozen votes of support."
During a victory get-together, Renna said she met with "a number of familiar media faces" and Anne Barrett Doyle of the Coalition of Concerned Catholics, who is a member of the steering committee for the lay reform movement Voice of the Faithful.
According to Renna, "Anne was one of the first people I spoke with back in March when we were cultivating resources and contacts to offer media outlets. ... Seeing Anne at the cathedral brought to mind how far we've come in the past months."
During those months, Cokie, Sam and the "News Mafia" had censored George Will, Pope John Paul II’s spokesman and almost all conservative spokespersons in Dallas who attempted to report the "link between homosexuality and sexual abuse by priests,” which the U.S. News & World Report detailed before the crackdown.
(To be fair, the crackdown broke down temporarily when Fox News host Brit Hume drolly said that allowing sex-abusing priests to marry wouldn’t help "unless you let them marry men or little boys.”)
But for the most part, only gay-approved "Catholic” lay reform activists like Anne Barrett Doyle who, together with the gay movement, worked for months cultivating "resources and contacts to offer media outlets,” were allowed to fully present their political agenda as "news” at Dallas.
’Catholic’ Lay Reform Activists
Time magazine in its June 17 issue, not to be outdone by the gay movement’s GLAAD, had its own "Catholic” lay reform activist, Mary Jo Bane, come forward to help the Church in its time of need. Bane said to Time that her "Catholic” lay organization and "power” plans were not "radical.”
However, according to attorney Gregory A. Hession, president of Family Legal Services, Bane is a radical. He said at his website:
"They hate family autonomy, parental authority, home schoolers, and Church authority.
"This is not an exaggeration. Dr. Mary Jo Bane, Clinton’s [former] Assistant Secretary of Administration for Children and Families in the Department of Health and Human Services, said: ‘If we want to talk about equality of opportunity for children, then the fact that children are raised in families means there's no equality. ... In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away from families and communally raise them.’ Her federal department is in charge of the national effort to mold state DSS [Department of Social Services] departments into their image.
"That is what the communists believe. The following statement issued at a congress of Russian Communist Party educators in 1918 sounds like the credo of the modern DSS agent."
This Clintonian bureaucratic experience is probably why the media and certain bishops are promoting Bane’s Hillary-like governmental ideas of centralized takeover of Church and family autonomy and authority. The bishops in Dallas created an Office for Child and Youth Protection to promote "safe environments" for children. Some have noted that so-called governmental "safe schools" and "safe spaces" are used by gay activists to promote homosexual agendas.
Some have joked that this is "an extension of the full employment act for homosexual and liberal Church bureaucrats.” Some wonder if this is not another way to attack the very ones who for two decades have been fighting against homosexual sex abuse and other abuses in the Church – that is, the faithful orthodox Catholic laity and priests.
The Child Protection Services under the DSS agents are notorious for taking children away from parents without any proof or due process, with usually only anonymous accusations. With the homosexual network inside the Church called the "lavender mafia” in control of many diocese bureaucracies, will orthodox laity and priests be targeted while homosexual sex abusers are protected by their gay allies?
Homosexual Network Within the Church
Many believe that the homosexual network within the Church protected the gay sex abusers at the Dallas meeting. As the National Review’s Rod Dreher pointed out on June 13, "the need to avoid the ’elephant in the sacristy [the fact that the vast majority of priest sexual abusers are homosexuals],’ in Mary Eberstadt's memorable phrase, is perhaps the only point on which the bishops and the media agree.”
To this end, the bishops running the Dallas meeting, according to the June 13 National Review’s article, had staged "briefings for the media on various aspects of the abuse scandal" by psychiatric panelists such as Rev. Canice Connors, Rev. Stephen Rossetti and others with a pro-homosexual agenda.
Connors is known among sex abuse victims for his psychiatric and "spiritual assessment" of mass pedophile Fr. John Geoghan. He wrote that "there are no particular recommendations concerning his spiritual life since he is involved in spiritual direction and seems to have a good prayer life."
While accepting psychiatric advice from the likes of Connors, the bishops in control of the meeting, however, refused the expertise of Catholic Medical Association (CMA) psychiatrists, who are faithful to the Church's full teachings. The CMA considered so-called expert Stephen Rossetti's advice to bishops as creating "a big part of" the sex abuse problem.
National Review's Dreher said, "The Rev. Stephen Rossetti, current president of St. Luke's, who is believed by some psychiatrists associated with the Catholic Medical Association to have been a big part of the problem, owing to the advice he's been giving bishops. Rossetti has most recently been downplaying the role homosexuality plays in the scandal."
American Psychiatric Association's "Lavender Mafia"
The "lavender mafia" (the homosexual network within the Church) was probably the reason the Catholic Medical Association's psychiatrists were banned, according to Dreher. According to psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) had its own "lavender mafia" when it voted to "normalize homosexuality" in the early 1970s.
The non-scientific as well as non-democratic Marxist and Nazi strategy used by the "lavender mafia" for its successful coup of the APA was explained by Satinover. The tactics used against the APA in the "normalization of homosexuality" are presented in his book "Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth." The Congressional Record of May 1996 called it the "best book on homosexuality written in our times."
Satinover said, "[T]he leadership of a homosexual faction within the APA planned a 'systematic effort to disrupt the annual meetings of the American Psychiatric Association.' They defended this method of 'influence' on the grounds that the APA represented 'psychiatry as a social institution' rather than a scientific body or professional guild."
As all can see, the "News Mafia" and the "lavender mafia" (the gay movement) are not respecters of freedom of speech or scientific bodies. They have created their own Iron Curtain, which is suppression of free speech.
The News Mafia, the Lavender Mafia and the Democratic Party Axis
The Berlin Wall was the symbol of Marxist ideology. Goldberg in "Bias" called ABC, NBC and CBS the three big "News Mafia" families. These "Big Three" are a large basis of the gay movement's power. The "News Mafia" is the New Berlin Wall that is even now starting to crumble, as did the Berlin Wall and the "evil empire" which built that wall.
Goldberg's "Bias" is like Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Archipelago," the beginning of the end for the new "evil empire." If talk radio and news sources like NewsMax continue to courageously fight the bias and lies of the "Big Three," then they will crumble as more and more viewers leave them.
But even the "Big Three" are only stooges of the New York Times and Washington Post. Goldberg said, "The problem is that so many TV journalists simply don’t know how to think about certain issues until the New York Times and the Washington Post tell them what to think. Those big, important newspapers set the agenda that network news people follow."
In the case of the newspaper of record, the gay movement appears to hold in bondage the New York Times in more ways than one. NewsMax ran an article about Accuracy in Media's Reed Irvine's inquiry into the Times' bias. (See: New York Times on Defensive.) Irvine said Richard Berke, a national political correspondent for the Times, spoke at a gathering of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association.
Irvine says that Berke assured the homosexual group that the Times would remain very receptive to the gay agenda because "three-fourths of those who regularly attend the daily meetings that determine what will be on the front page of the Times the next morning are 'not-so-closeted' homosexuals."
Goldberg unwittingly in analogy showed a similar situation at CBS when he said, "If CBS News were a prison instead of a journalistic enterprise, three-quarters of the producers and 100 percent of the vice presidents would be Dan's [Rather's] bitches."
Norman Mailer explains why the totalitarian relationship Dan Rather had with his CBS News producers and vice presidents, as well as his denial of natural objective truths, can lead to a Nietzschean will-to-power situation. In his book "Prisoner of Sex," Mailer showed why this moving away from natural objective truths such as heterosexual sex can lead to the homosexual prison totalitarian will to power.
This totalitarian will to power and denial of natural objective truths may be the reason why Goldberg considered the media's anti-conservative bias against the great "social" issues such as abortion and homosexuality to be even greater than against the "Democrat-versus-Republican sort" of issues.
He said, "Why were we doing PR for the AIDS lobby by spreading an epidemic of fear, telling our viewers about how AIDS was about to break out into mainstream heterosexual America, which simply was not true?”
But even in this, there is a political dimension. Former Gov. Pete du Pont pointed out in a Wall Street Journal article after the Bush-Gore 2000 presidential race that, when he compared maps, the adult video rental map and the map of the counties that went for Gore were the same.
E. Michael Jones, the editor of Culture War magazine, said, "If they want to survive as a party, the Republicans have to understand first of all, how sexual liberation is a form of political control, and secondly, how the Democrats increase their political power by mobilizing sexual deviance ... things like pornography and its scholastic variant, sex education, in addition to abortion and homosexuality. ... Those who are stupid enough to identify themselves with their sexual vices can always look to the Democratic Party and the dominant media culture as sympathetic to ... guarantee his bondage."
Soviet Republics of CBS, ABC and NBC
The next battle in this war for freedom against the gay-media axis is again in the Catholic Church. The gay movement’s spin organization GLAAD has already pointed to the next battle:
"With the Apostolic Visitations of U.S. seminaries expected to begin in August [and expected to last for two years], Dignity/USA and other church reform groups are going to be monitoring to see whether Vatican leaders will quietly attempt to purge gay men from the priesthood. GLAAD will be working closely with Dignity and our respective contacts inside the church to make sure the media are closely monitoring the process and outcomes of these visitations.”
Time‘s May 20 issue in its preparation for the Apostolic Visitations of U.S. seminaries showed its strategy by using words like "hate" and "scapegoat" to color faithful Catholics and the Church's attempt to uphold its 20-centuries-old moral teachings in its own seminaries. The piece quoted a homosexual priest saying, "We're all sort of like Anne Frank's family, up in the attic, waiting for the Nazis to come."
This is the same Soviet-Clinton strategy used on CBS insider Goldberg after he wrote about bias in the media. The liberal Goldberg was ripped as a right-wing scoundrel by Dan Rather and other media elites using words like "wacky charge," "weird," "bizarre" and "political activist" to discredit him and "divert attention" from the media elite's bias.
This shows that the dominant media comprise one of the last bastions of suppression of free speech within their own sovereign domain since the fall of the USSR. Goldberg in his own words was made a "nonperson” because he used his constitutional right of free speech to expose corruption in the Soviet Republics of CBS, ABC and NBC.
As liberal Goldberg said, "I was pointing fingers at the media elite, which only proved that I was the one who had a bias problem. Wasn’t this what used to happen – on a much scarier and devastating scale, for sure – in the old Soviet Union? A dissident says the elite are corrupt, so the elite throw him in the Gulag because his accusations prove beyond any doubt ... that the dissident is insane."
Media Elite’s Soviet-Clinton Strategy Against the Catholic Church
As in the case of Goldberg, the media elite’s Soviet-Clinton strategy against the Catholic Church is false. According to Michael Rose's accounts in "Goodbye, Good Men," the orthodox heterosexual seminarians are the victims of Nazi- or Stalinist-like strategies, not the homosexual network.
Father John Trigilio of the Harrisburg diocese said to Rose that the totalitarian gay subculture in the seminaries, which includes the faculties, made his 12 years in the schools something out of Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Archipelago."
Also in Rose’s book, a priest in the diocese of Austin, in reference to the pro-homosexual seminaries, said: "[T]he dynamic paralleled the brain-washing strategies of the Communist re-education camps. Even the connotations of the terms 'rigid,' 'pre-conciliar,' 'anti-community' resonated with Communist terms like 'capitalist,' 'bourgeois,' and 'anti-democratic.' "
All persons who love freedom must be prepared to monitor the gay-media axis' spin and tactics of "influence" at the Vatican’s Apostolic Visitations of U.S. seminaries.
If faithful Catholics and the Church's attempt to uphold its 2,000-year-old moral teachings in its own seminaries can be terrorized by the same Marxist and Nazi tactics used on the American Psychiatric Association and Bernard Goldberg, what American organization or person is safe?
