    Posted by The Right Scoop on September 29th, 2012 in Politics

    Pat Caddell gave a fantastic speech to Accuracy in Media on the media and how starting in the 1980s they stopped holding both sides to the same level of accountability. He focuses a fair amount on Benghazi-gate but also mentions a few other things including the media’s silence on David Plouffe receiving $100k from an Iranian front group for giving 2 speeches. Caddell totally nails it by saying that the media has now become a danger to America and an enemy of the people.

    Pat Caddell is nothing more than a doughy pantload of Breitbart/Fox/GOP talking points. He's a sock puppet, through and through.

    In 1988, Caddell left the Democratic Party after an acrimonious lawsuit with a Democratic consulting firm, Caddell, Doak and Shrum. Republicans would often cite Caddell's tirades against the Democratic Party when they spoke on the floor of the House and the Senate.[3][4][5]

    Caddell is a regular guest on the Fox News Channel, and he is listed as an official 'Fox News Contributor'.

    Caddell is definitely a right wing sock puppet, but the line before his name is mentioned on his regular Fox appearances is always "Democratic pollster." Idiots on the right actually believe that.

    He's been a busy little neo-beaver with some 501(c)3's & 4's lately, which purport to be non-partisan, but are anything but.

    Like Secure America Now (SAN)

    "...a hawkish advocacy group founded in 2011 by pollsters John McLaughlin and Pat Caddell. The group produces political ads and policy analyses in an effort to “inject national security issues into the public dialogue.

    A high-profile “member” of the group is Devon Cross, a longstanding neoconservative activist who has supported a number of militarist advocacy initiatives, including the Project for the New American Century.[2]

    Secure America Now - Profile - Right Web - Institute for Policy Studies

    These guys do a poll, which even the Washington Post called “laughably bogus”, and when ask about - McLaughlin said:
    ‘Pat [Caddell] and I worked with [Secure America Now] to do the survey. [...] They paid for it

    As it turns out - Secure America Now, is them!

    How's that for Hoot-spa?

    Because it's like a liberal coming in here, and saying, here, watch this David Brock video...in it he describes how poorly the media do their job and they are nothing but corporate shills ...
    ...he's a former republican! so you should listen him. !!!

    Now, you tell me how quickly practically every right winger here (assuming they are smart enough to know who David Brock is) would laugh the OP off the thread?

    You know the answer to that.

    Caddelll is just a sloppier, creepier David Brock.
