He cited the National Press Club bronze that lists the “Journalist’s Creed,” as written by Walter Williams when he founded the Missouri School of Journalism more than a century ago. It states: “That journalists must be public trustees with the full measure of responsibility to the public. That accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism. That a single standard of truth must prevail for all.”
Pointedly, he noted the credo states “that suppression of the news is indefensible.”
“The Journalist’s Creed is like the doctor’s Hippocratic Oath, but for journalists. Imagine if all physicians chose to ignore the Hippocratic Oath? We’d all get sick. In this case, we are all becoming badly infected with Marxism,” Gilbert told WND.
He said that American journalists have been in the pocket of the Obama campaign and administration, in violation of those precepts for journalists. “I accuse ABC, NBC, and CBS network news divisions of violating the public trust by refusing to cover my documentary film and for ignoring all the revelations about Obama’s background that other researchers have produced,” he said. “I accuse MSNBC of an intentional and often vile campaign of lies and misrepresentations to protect Barack Obama’s false narrative.”
