President of Stephens Media Gets Blasted

Sherman Frederick is the president of Stephens Media, which of course owns all three Big Island papers here on this island.

Many of us who know about newspapers and the way they operate, know that they are highly influenced from top to bottom in what actually gets printed in them.

Look at some of the stuff that this guy is coming up with:

Frederick falsely claims all domestic terrorist attacks since 9-11 took place “on Obama’s watch.”

Frederick says he has “zero confidence” in the “science” of global warming.

Frederick falsely suggests health care bills will treat “illegal aliens” better than U.S. citizens.

Frederick: Obama’s legacy will depend “on how badly he wounds the American economy and how quickly Sarah Palin can fix it.”

Frederick: “Sarah Palin for President!”

I wonder how much our own local media is influenced directly by this guy?

    News Papers have been part of the political machine for 100’s of years, why would the Big Island Papers be an exception?

  2. LOL…guy is ______. Fill in da blank…
