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.
Here's the problem: the Establishment of both political parties ignore and despise the "New Media". They fear and are subservient to the Old Media (really the media/government/party complex), and want to please them. Hence, Romney.
