Posted on 09/20/2012 5:47:48 PM PDT by kristinn
NBC News reporter Chuck Todd mocked this FReeper on Twitter tonight for my pointing out that the media would rather lose money than cater to conservative consumers of news. The conversation started over a comment by Slater reporter Dave Weigel on media bias in polls:
Do people actually think news networks would pay for unreliable polls with bad samples b/c they love Obama so much? Don't answer that.
I replied: News media has deliberately alienated conservatives, willfully losing money to further liberalism. Skewed polls just a part.
Weigel retweeted my comment with a slight modification to his 75,849 followers: MT @KristinnFR: Media has deliberately alienated conservatives, losing money to further liberalism. Skewed polls just a part.
Chuck Todd chimed with his comment that went to his 245,862 followers: that is some "logic"; so our corporate parents deliberately want us to lose money? N-V-T-S nuts nuts nuts (N-V-T-S is a Ron Carey reference from the Roman Empire section of Mel Brook's film History of the World Part One.)
I replied to Todd: Newsweek. Sold for a buck to keep it out of conservative hands.
Someone else asked for empiracle evidence. I told him: Proof is in market place. Conservative radio, internet, news empires built to meet demand eschewed by MSM.
Chuck Todd got permission from Jay Carney to reply to a FReeper earlier today....
the 4th estate is a 5th column.
You are truly in the thick of it. Good job!
Good job. I recall that the New York Times refused an offer from a conservative buyer.
Sometimes the leftist put their agenda ahead of making money or even political popularity.
Clinton was such an anti-gun zealot that he supported the assault weapon ban even tho he knew it would hurt him. I do suspect he didn’t expect the results of the 94 elections tho.
That is the only thing keeping Obama from trying to get more gun control passed.
Almost threw something at the TV.
Chuck Todd’s sponsors get IRS tax breaks (zero taxes
previously through GE) exactly for their
absolute support of all things Obama,
the DNC and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac.
No one in America believes Todd and NBC anymore.
They have wasted the all confidence of what once was
It’s true, they would They’ve been alienating the non-PC crowd for decades, and they know it. They also know that’s the monied class, the advertisers, the subscriber base, yet they continue to promote a one-sided PC agenda of the lowest of the lowlife.
Chuck Todd is a poofter with an average intellect and an extroadinary opinion of his bad self. WGAS what he tweets.
Fox is #1 in audience. Why aren’t they copying success?
These people and their organizations are too stupid to survive.
The MSM has become nothing more than a propaganda arm for Dear Reader and they know it.
They no longer have any credibility. Nor should they.
Hey chuckie, see the emperor’s interview with Univision today if you ever want to know what a unbiased reporter looks and sounds like.
In less than a year, Today show host Matt Lauers likability has plummeted 25%, according to the Q Scores, an influential survey used by companies and advertisers to help make major decisions.
Kris...I have been killing Todd’s twitter all night long...totally cornering him as well...been a lot of fun...have a few hrs to kill tonight...think I will keep it up!
Like throwing holy water on a vampire.
Naturally they deny the evidence that goes against their dogma. It is after all, the Obama way. Eventually they will jump ship...as soon as they can do it and make it seem like it was their idea all along.
But they live in a bubble, so until that happens, YOU are the crazy one. The bubble says so.
When Bush claimed to end Operation Mockingbird as the new head of the CIA he welcomed voluntary unpaid cooperation of journalists.
The media has a long history of promoting agendas.
