If the MSM didn't have competition from new media, Huntsman would be the current leader. I'm absolutely 100% confident about this. How liberal were the republican candidates in the 60's, during the height of the media's monopoly?
Nixon in 60, Goldwater in 64, Nixon in 68.
McCain was the easier candidate to defeat. That is why the MSM dumped on Romney while treating McCain like a prince.
Now Romney gets the throne of the media for the same reason.
For much too long, I have personally been referring the LameStreamers as the “JOSEF GOEBBELS SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM”, and for that time, I sadly have found I am RIGHT.
The “BIG LIE” is the message. “CAIN a sexual predator” explodes overnight all every liberal media outlet. Ignore the facts of Clinton, Jackson, Kennedy, etc etc etc...they are good kindly liberals.
Bush once drove intoxicated. So did I once and so did most people (once) with the guts to admit it.
“SHE” is a witch, ignoring those who have for years proved they are.
This Conservative made (gasp) lots of money, while ignoring the ULTRA wealthy Democrats, many of whom seemed to have “earned” their wealth AFTER taking office.
It was once believed that a FREE PRESS was the strength an foundation of our nation. I fear (no, I know) that foundation now has the strength of a block of cream cheese.
The “Old Media” is a tool used by the Left. The Left is represented by the Democrats going back to the earliest days of our Nations founding, and the history of what was known as “The press” even in the days of my youth, the all powerful MSM as we know it today has been possessed by the Left, and used as a tool by the Left to manipulate thought, or flat out destroy their competition, or opposition.
With the “New Media” rapidly overtaking the “Old Media”, and the people of this Nation, now seeking to get out from under the deluge of BS used by the MSM (”Old Media”) to torque our brains we have the opportunity to weaken their hold over the Nation with their disinformation.
Free Republic is just one of many tools we have of the “New Media” to stop the Leftist disinformation campaign, and that means not only the Democrats disinformation, but the Leftist Republican RINO disinformation as well.
Your post is important. The links are important, but the premise that it’s the MSM as the originating source of ALL of the disinformation, the mischaracterizations, etc. I think is erroneous.
It’s the Leftist machine, the Democrat war machine that albeit is ages old is well maintained, well oiled, and cranking out BS against all the Leftistsphere’s opposition 24/7/365 as usual. The MSM/The Press is their tool.
The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/
Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and like him. In just the last week he has jumped 13% or 42000 with an impressive 10,000 in the last 24 hours. Make no mistake Karl Rove is watching Hermans likes and so is Romney who gained just 1500 since last Tuesday. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to like Herman as well.
I forgot about the big black cloud. You have the hunting lease and the he’s a drunk. Man if he was black he could complain the media is racist. As it stands he’s just a Republican.
Romney was the “wacky” candidate, and the left learned that tactic was effective against Romney.
So, they’re confident they can use it on him and it will work.
That’s why they want him to be our candidate.
In practicality, there is no difference between what will happen to our country under Romney and under Obama. There may be a difference between the rate of change, but the government/media/party complex will destroy this country no matter who the president is.
We are beyond a political fix to our troubles. That ship sailed almost exactly 3 years ago.
