If you don’t shout the truth when you hear lies, you are an accomplice

The Roman Polanski Journalism Award is given annually to a notable person who can take a person or persons exhibiting vile behavior and morph them into folk hero status through misrepresentation.

Rick Stengel, Managing Editor of Time Magazine, has won the dubious distinction of winning Independent Sentinel’s Roman Polanski Award. He will apparently do anything for publicity, even publish distorted stories about the occupiers of Wall Street.

If you missed this month’s Time Magazine, you didn’t miss much. Time decided to nominate The Protester as the Person of the Year, which would be fine if they didn’t compare the fringe Occupiers of Wall Street with the protesters in the Middle East who are putting their lives on the line for freedom or Sharia Law, whichever it turns out to be. There was blatant dishonesty in the reports of the Arab Spring as well, but that is for another story.

The Time article about the occupiers is so utterly dishonest, it puts everything else they say into question. In the article, the assorted far left occupying groups from the fringe of society, who leave filth in their wake, are characterized as noble thoughtful people who are mainly concerned about the growing divide between rich and poor.

Meanwhile the divide is growing because of the policies of this administration. The occupy movement was planned and funded by Anarchists, Communists, Socialists, and the like.

Managing Editor Rick Stengel and his team will do anything to make money and gain publicity – anything. For that reason, they must be given our annual Roman Polanski Journalism Award. The decision was unanimous.

Time Magazine conveniently left out the Tea Party. No bias there, none at all.

Since Time left them out, I have  included photos of the tea party protesters,  followed by the occupiers. I think it important for people to see the groups that Obama and his followers malign, followed by the groups that they laud.


The OWS seem to be missing a few beans from their jelly bean jar. Here’s one who thinks that forcing her 4 year old on the train tracks to close down a port is proof of her faith in mankind.

I wonder if Stengel will publish the story of the Portland mom who forced her 4 year old on the train tracks to close the port in Portland. Or maybe he’ll post this story about a $25,000 KATU camera being stolen by the occupiers in Portland. Read here: KATU camera stolen and here: Use 4 year olds to stop trains

The Protester, Time Magazine, the Story in Photos, Conveniently Leaving Out the Majority of Telling Photos
