Mainstream Media smearing Ben Swann

The Mainstream Media wants to smear Ben. If anyone has the ability to author a piece in his defense, please do so. He is our voice.

They can try,

but anyone with half a brain that actually listens to Ben should come out of it realizing that he comes off as an unbiased-fact checking journalist, as opposed to some sensationalistic, narcissistic jackass that tries to play on people's emotions. It should be really clear to anyone that gives Ben a listen to. I think if anything, this may actually gain him more followers who are looking for REAL, FACT based NEWS. Sometimes "bad" publicity can work in your favor.

Not to veer off-topic, but Ben doesn't come off like a lunatic the way Alex Jones came off to many viewers on Pier's show. Even in that scenario, it worked to Alex's benefit as people started wondering who this Alex Jones guy is. If even 5% of the people who do a little research on Alex Jones......

Point being, I think this can only help.

They have no choice but to attack him

The public is seeing real journalistic integrity at work and it's making them look bad.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Trying to smear him...

Trying to smear him is just proof that he is doing something right and they know it. Ben Swann is one of a kind and we need many more like him.

No offense, but your title implies Ben Swann is doing...

the smearing.

What about "Campaign to smear Ben Swann conducted by Mainstream Media" or, simply, "Mainstream Media smearing Ben Swann"?

Hello:

I am taking a moment out of my day to respond to an article I read this morning: http://www.policymic.com/articles/23449/reporter-ben-swann-s...

As you are no doubt aware, response to Ben Swann has been stellar. I see his videos all over Facebook, YouTube, and various 'freedom-oriented' blogs and forums online. Many people cherish this man's honesty, intelligence, and ability to articulate truth. He's one of the very few remaining true investigative journalists we've got!

Please do not let an ignorant, knee-jerk, illogical, emotion-based few harm Ben Swann's position within your organization.

We need him. He's invaluable. Thanks.

Ben doesn't deserve to be

Ben doesn't deserve to be smeared. Being an objective reporter, he should be praised.

Here's a headline for

Here's a headline for you:

"Fake Journalists, Resentful of Being Shown Up By Real Journalist, Launch Smear Campaign"

OK, maybe it's a bit long, but it gets to the point!

I saw that on his facebook last night.

They can't handle the truth or anyone questioning their facts.

If this type of attempted smear causes the mainstream audience

to look into what BenS is really saying in videoreports and writing in his blogs, this may give a great opportunity for him to break into the main stage of news business, I guess.

Very True. But sometimes

there are gray areas.

I do not know if you remember, back in May, how many put their entire faith and integrity into "truedelegatescount" website ... or the lawyers thingy. Our DP collectivists almost had eaten me alive at the time.

And then the RNC happened

Which made all the Delegate Count and Lawyers for RP stuff irrelevant in contrast to what happened in plain sight on the national stage.

These "people" just don't give a S*** and they'll continue to openly push against freedom and try to label those fighting for freedom as "mentally unfit"

honestly whats new..

the people that buy into this garbage are going to do it no matter what. Some people just need to be affected personally before they will agree to look at themselves and their country objectively. As for Ben, I will keep watching, and as his audience grows, so too will the hit pieces.
