Corrupt, Biased, and Dishonest News Media Exposed!

Secret Lauren Ritchie Email Shows Support for Conner While Slamming Breeden

The majority of Americans agree with Presidential Candidate Donald Trump that the news media is corrupt, biased, and dishonest and there is no exception when it comes to the propaganda printers here in Lake County.

In a breaking news exclusive to the Right Side of the Lake, we have obtained copies of emails that were exchanged between Lake Sentinel Columnist Lauren Ritchie and Republican County Commissioner District 3 Candidate Wendy Breeden, which demonstrate Ritchie’s unbridled support for incumbent Jimmy Conner.  However, these emails also suggest Ritchie may have coordinated attacks with the Conner campaign, which are blatant campaign violations because her columns were not treated as “in-kind” donations.

On Friday, August 12, 2016 at 9:10 p.m., Wendy Breeden responded to an email from Lauren Ritchie wherein she was trying to bait the candidate into a position on sand mines, which was clearly being orchestrated on behalf of the Conner campaign.  Breeden wrote in her email to Ritchie, “I pretty much know who this article will favor.”

At 9:23 p.m. that same day, Ritchie responded with an email encouraging Breeden to change her mind on the response and then she wrote the following, “You are right that I do favor Jimmy, not so much for his sparkling personality as for his voting record, which I have found to be pretty stable and generally up my alley.”  Lauren Ritchie’s admission of support for Jimmy Conner disqualified her and the Lake Sentinel from being unbiased news reporters and columnists.  It is at that point she became an official part of the Jimmy Conner campaign.

Not only can we prove that Lauren Ritchie attacked Wendy Breeden on behalf of Jimmy Conner, she did so with the total and complete backing of the Orlando Sentinel.  Consider the following columns and information printed in the Lake Sentinel after Ritchie declared her support of Conner to Breeden.

August 12, 2016 — “Stooge robs vote from thousands” by Lauren Ritchie
In this column, Ritchie quotes Conner and tries to make a case that something was done wrong by Breeden when the race between Conner and Breeden was closed by a write-in candidate.

August 12, 2016 — “Conner, Breeden meet in contentious race” by Ryan Gillespie
In this so-called news story, a prominent picture of Conner is used and the majority of the article is an attack piece that could have been easily written by the Conner campaign.  Breeden is forced to defend herself against Conner and the Lake Sentinel reporter.  There is no semblance of fairness.

August 13, 2016 —“‘Issues’ in Conner-Breeden race are smoke screens” by Lauren Ritchie
This was a campaign commercial for Conner defending his record and championing his positions, especially on the sand mine.  Ritchie hatefully wrote of Breeden and went so low as to try to make a campaign point for Conner by discussing Breeden’s property taxes.  Ritchie wrote of backroom deals while making one of her own with Conner.

August 18, 2016 — “Impact-fee position would benefit family” by Lauren Ritchie
In this column, Ritchie now says that Breeden is not only getting money from the sand mine companies but she is running for the commission seat to help her brother’s company by rolling back impact fees so developers can build 16,000 homes.  She spews a narrative that is completely fabricated by the Conner campaign without one shred of truth and devoid of any facts.  It is a total lie and merely a hit piece to bolster the Conner campaign.

August 27, 2016 — “Maxwell: Truth? Lie? Time for Malarkey Meter” by Scott Maxwell
In this piece of biased reporting, the Orlando Sentinel defends Conner for being called a “liberal bully” in a mailer by a political action committee.  First, it’s true, and no one in their right mind can defend Conner’s abusive behavior.  But why does an Orlando Sentinel columnist feel the need to defend Conner on a typical political mailer?  Our guess is that he is trying to sway the election.

September 8, 2016 — “Chump of the Week: Wendy Breeden” by Sentinel Editorial Board
This was a week and two days after the election and it proves the corrupt, biased, and dishonest position of the Orlando Sentinel and Lake Sentinel.  They called Wendy Breeden the “Chump of the Week” because she ousted incumbent Jimmy Conner on a vow to reduce impact fees on home builders.  That is a lie.  Wendy Breeden did not run her campaign on impact fees nor on a vow to reduce them.  In fact, she told the local home builders association she supported impact fees.

Based on the current advertising rate of the Lake Sentinel, the Jimmy Conner campaign should declare $6,700 for “in-kind” donations and we believe this is an actual violation of state election law.  An actual complaint could be filed against the Lake Sentinel and the Jimmy Conner campaign for their coordinated efforts.

Lauren Ritchie Violates the Orlando Sentinel’s Code of Ethics
When Lauren Ritchie declared to Wendy Breeden that she supported Jimmy Conner, she then wrote three columns endorsing Conner’s positions while slamming Breeden.  She violated her newspaper’s own code of ethics.

The Orlando Sentinel’s ethics policy states:

“Political Activities.  Political organizations present particular challenges.  Donor lists are public information, so there are no “private” donations to a party or cause.  For that reason — and because it would be impractical to police exceptions — no Editorial staffer, whether involved in political coverage or not, may donate to or be active in such groups.”

Later in the policy, it states is section #5 — The Florida Statutes exempt editorial endorsements as being considered a contribution.  It does not exempt columnists and reporters.

Two facts about Lauren Ritchie.  When she said she favored Jimmy Conner and then acted accordingly as a political operative, Ritchie became active in the Conner campaign.

Then, by her own columns which can be considered nothing but endorsements for Jimmy Conner, and given she is just a reporter and columnist, she is not exempt from the campaign laws of the state of Florida.  In essence, Ritchie made “in-kind” donations to the Conner campaign.

Do we think the Editors of the Orlando Sentinel will follow their own ethics policy?  Hell, no!  That is the reason why the media is so corrupt.  The purpose of this column is to demonstrate clearly how corrupt, biased, and dishonest the media is and that nothing Lauren Ritchie writes should be trusted.

If the Orlando Sentinel has any integrity they would immediately terminate Lauren Ritchie for her clear violations of their ethics policy and for destroying the integrity of their newspaper.

  1. Obviously there is no help available for anyone who lacks the ability to see how the establishment controlled lame stream media media has coalesced around the only surviving establishment candidate for president. Perhaps those late awakens will also some day realize this media control has long been brought right to the front door of millions of Americans with the goals of programming there every thought about every issue at hand.

    In 1953, Joseph Alsop, then one of America’s leading syndicated columnists, went to the Philippines to cover an election.

    He did not go because he was asked to do so by his syndicate. He did not go because he was asked to do so by the newspapers that printed his column. He went at the request of the CIA.

    Alsop is one of more than 400 American journalists who in the past twenty five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters. Some of these journalists’ relationships with the Agency were tacit; some were explicit.

    There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services – from simple intelligence gathering to serving as go betweens with spies in Communist countries. Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA.

    Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters who considered themselves ambassadors without portfolio for their country.

    Most were less exalted:
    • foreign correspondents who found that their association with the Agency helped their work
    • stringers and freelancers who were as interested in the derring do of the spy business as in filing articles
    • the smallest category, full time CIA employees masquerading as journalists abroad

    In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.

    The use of journalists has been among the most productive means of intelligence gathering employed by the CIA. Although the Agency has cut back sharply on the use of reporters since 1973 primarily as a result of pressure from the media), some journalist operatives are still posted abroad.

    Further investigation into the matter, CIA officials say, would inevitably reveal a series of embarrassing relationships in the 1950s and 1960s with some of the most powerful organizations and individuals in American journalism.

    The US government has no external “need to manipulate” mass media outlets such as “Time magazine, for example, because there are Agency [CIA] people at the management level.”

    In a podcast broadcast on the internet [Available by Google search] Former CIA employee Barry Eisler explains why you shouldn’t trust the CIA.

  2. No reason to think this local Marxist propagandist would be any different than those in the national media. The establishment has been controlling almost all media outlets for the last century. Today the only true and honest transparency comes from the non-authorized home grown people who have discovered what the media exposes and what the truth is are usually always 180 degrees apart.The social media designed by the establishment allows the people to tell the truth about the organizations destroying America and the free world. Karma maybe?

    Just last week several of the FAUX News Comrades including, Kelly, Sheppard Smith and even ole unfair and unbalanced Bill O’Reilly was exposed by some of those unethical hackers – all said to be operatives in the Clinton machine. At the same time Sean Hannity was reprimanded for appearing in a Trump ad. Maybe it is true the Saudi Royal family has a very large investment in FAUX News.

    In today’s world those who dare expose the facts are labeled by the Marxists with some titled designed to destroy their credibility – while authorized establishment propagandists like Lauren Ritchie can lie and write articles designed to cover up for her Marxist-Nazi perverted friends serving the establishment.

    One thing for sure the dim wits have surly witnessed another rare event of “buy partisanship” politics this weekend – the Obama’s and the O’Bushes living large at the Grand Opening of the Smithsonian Black Museum. their adopted sister in law Hillary would have probably been there with them if not for the pressure she is under studying for her “your’in test” on Monday.
    Seventeen down and just one more to go and all these Communists-Marxist_Nazi’s can leave American the Beautiful and take their Sharia law loving Islam is Peace Muslim’s with them.

    Remember Old Bush 41 didn’t admit that Bill Clinton was his adopted son until the end of the eight years he served after Bush handed him the white house on a silver platter either.

  3. When Lauren’s good buddy Sheriff Borders took-over animal control, she heaped praise upon him and his wonderful management skills. Now Borders wants to give it back; he couldn’t run it any better than the incompetent BOCC staff.

    So Lauren; what do you think of Sheriff Sandusky; I mean, Borders; now?

  4. The problem of it is, you do not know what you were referring too. You make a comment “Maybe it is time for a lawsuit” but you do not have enough intelligence to realize that the same people who are “Corrupt, Biased, and Dishonest in the News Media” are directly connected to the “Corrupt, Biased, and Dishonest” in every “official” capacity in the formerly good ole USA from City Halls to County Offices, state offices and right on to Washington, DC.

    In fact it has come to pass that the United States of America in 2016 has become the most corrupt nation on earth. Many of its even legal inhabitants can not recognize a blatant lie from the truth and in fact many of them do not have the capacity to understand and accept the truth when directly confronted with it. This comes after decades of unilateral propaganda coming from card carrying Communist-Marxists the likes of Lauren Ritchie and thousands of others programmed to spread their venom across the USA and the world at large in a closed shop forum where for over a century their victims had absolutely recourse for rebuttal to their venom.

    We the people do not take orders from the likes of you. We the people have awaken and we are sick and tired of the Communist-Marxists the snakes who have been lying in the darkness awaiting a chance to steal our money and destroy our offspring all in the name of thousands of schemes under the pretense of “it’s all for the children.” Destabilizing America’s female youth while Feminizing America’s male youth for decades. What brought us to this point in world history? Research Nikita Khrushev’s – Speech to The United Nations [UN] on Sept. 15, 1959.

    He told us just exactly how he would destroy the USA – In 1965 Paul Harvey told America and the world how. if he was the Devil he would destroy the USA and the free world.

    Well, for the idiots who can not walk and chew gum at the same time they are playing their hand held devices – these threats have come to pass – American’s have trusted the wrong “officials” wolves in sheep’s clothing – all for lip service that has brought only more human and moral destruction to America – look at your neighborhoods, sure they look better than Chicago and Detroit right now. but be patient – total destruction is coming to a neighborhood near you just as fast as George Schwartz Soros and his friends can make it happen – along with that will come his United Nations International Police Force and the night of the breaking glass – say you have never heard of that? That’s why “they” stopped teaching any history decades ago – some idiot might accidentally wake up and realize history does repeat itself – especially when we have the same bloodlines doing the same thing and financing the same things they have been financing for over a century.

  5. Huh ? says:

    No, wasn’t referring to anything like that at all. Go to bed.

  6. Ben Dover says:

    You mean another lawsuit like the one filed by the family of the “murder by cop victim” Andrew Scott in Federal Court in Ocala? All neatly wrapped up and filed by an attorney who was “really” working for the establishment who failed to request a trial by jury with case assigned to a trial by judge only who works for the establishment who promptly threw the case out of his court.

    Another case solved by and for the criminals in “the criminal “just us” system!

    For those not familiar with this case it can be found on this website under MOST READ STORIES.

  7. Just Amazing says:

    Maybe it is time for a lawsuit…………..
