Conservatives, who do interviews to get their point of view out there, need to come to grips with the fact that the dinosaur media does not do interviews for information and facts. They want interviews with conservatives for material, sound bites and misquotes, that can used and manipulated to suit the media agenda.
This statement was issued from Governor LePage’s office today: “It appears that some Maine news media are not providing the context of the Governor’s recent action requesting clarification from the courts.
The Governor recently joined an amicus brief that challenges the ability of an activist judge to re-define a federal law enacted in 1964, which is in direct violation of separation of powers. If the federal government wants to revise its own discrimination laws, that is up to the Congress, not activist judges.
The Sixth Circuit has not only ignored the will of Congress, but also supplanted itself as an unelected legislature of three with the power to rewrite congressional enactments in violation of separation of powers. The role of the courts is to interpret the law, not to rewrite the law by adding new, unintended meaning.
Please note that Maine already expanded the scope of its anti-discrimination protections by adopting the Maine Human Rights Act.
This change was made by the Legislature, which is how changes to law should be made.”
So with the given pattern of false reporting, propagandizing, and fixation on character assassination, yet still, with all the new media venues available and the precipitous decline of the trust of the American people in the old fossilized mainstream media, the White House continues to afford the mainstream media relics a spot in the White House Press Corps, validating their unprofessional behavior and foisting on the American people something they increasingly do not want and are disgusted with.
