Media blackout at the Southern border is unprecedented

March 22, 2021

You might have heard about the media blackout at the Southern border, but then again you might not have because despite this happening to the media they have been oddly quiet about it. We have heard reports about how bad the crisis at the Southern border has become since Joe Biden told illegal immigrants to flood the border when he became President, but we have not been allowed to see it because sometimes seeing is much more powerful than reading about something. The full extent of the crisis, and the thousands of children being locked in cages cannot be grasped by mere words.

Well, now at least one photo-journalist is sounding the alarm, calling this blackout unprecedented. Here is more:

“I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now – zero access is granted to media,” Moore wrote on Twitter. He didn’t type Biden’s name, but he specified it by omission in naming the other presidents.

“There’s no modern precedent for a full physical ban on media access to CBP border operations,” he said, again making the intent perfectly clear.

There is quite a bit more and if you follow the link above you can read all his tweets on this issue and his demands to see the border. This blackout is a far cry from just a few years ago when people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took cameramen to the border for photo-ops, now suddenly the free press is not so free.

And while there is some outcry from Republicans the public does not seem to care that there is a major crisis happening in our once free country and the President is not letting us see what is happening because it will make him look bad.

I still remember when Donald Trump was President and the left was all up in arms about how he was trying to stifle the press and how dangerous this was because a free press is vital to a democracy just because he kicked one reporter out of the White House, but under Joe Biden the press has become nothing more than the propaganda wing of the Party.

    If this should get the attention of the “American People” it’s nothing a new round of stimulus money can’t serve as a distraction. I myself don’t care about the criminals held up at the border as I wait patiently for my part of the current payoff.🏦

    Progressive Political Science: When out of power never let a good crisis go to waste. When in power never let a good crisis go to the press.

    “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.” V.I Lenin

      It is so clear now why the intellectual elite focused on Hitlers evils, and ignored that of Communist Russia. They wanted to keep their “game plan” a secret until they had all the pieces in place. In just one year, using the Covid as an excuse to lock down people, using endless media lies to discredit a freedom loving president, and using a 3 hour riot at the US Capitol as our version of the “Reichstag Fire” all they needed was a demented empty suit of a President.
      Just like “Alice in Wonderland” where “the great OZ” was a fake, Biden has made it possible for Lenin’s dreams to become REALITY.

    Hello Laura. If I may presume and going by nothing but your name and picture, you might be a young Latina? If so, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, you are our only hope for the future. As an old white male, I am the lowest form of life, so I have no voice (other than here). You and others like you HAVE the power to save this country. Would love to hear your story.
