Media Ignores Ryan Crowds For Few Pro-Obama Protesters

Breitbart News's Joel Pollak reports from a Paul Ryan event in North Carolina that media is virtually ignoring the thousands attending the event in favor of a few pro-Obama protesters:

Thousands of Ryan fans... but MSM cameras/journalists focus on SEVEN Obamabots demonstrating!....

"There's certainly no harm in covering both sides of the event, but the media's picture-proven preference for the few protesters over the thousands waiting in line (and thousands more turned away from lack of accommodation, Pollak remarks) is biased. The suggestion that the presence of a few protesters is equal to that of the thousands there to see Ryan is misleading. That's not an accurate representation of both sides and only solidifies the bias which defines American media."

The media is screaming that Ryan didn’t tell the truth in his speech. These pictures ought to be put into an ad that would make the point that the msm isn’t telling the truth as it covers this election.

I saw this exact same thing during the 2000 demonstrations.

300 to 400 people were lined up along the street in support of GW Bush, and two teenage girls held signs for Gore.

The media showed up, moved the girls away from the curb, turned the cameras AWAY from the crowd on the curb and zoomed in tight on the two pro-Gore demonstrators.

We didn’t allow that to happen and swarmed them on all sides so the media couldn’t pull that crap.

The media has been doing that for decades, but finally we have the power to demonstrate their deceit by our own ownership of alternative media. I was once at a large pro-life rally downtown in south Florida with about 500 people. And what did the paper show the next day? Five women across the street holding coat hangers, and a mention that “dozens” of people had showed up at the rally to be protested against. What is it about journalism, from a psychological sense, that attracts liars and deceivers?

They’ve bought the commie lie.
Read the chapter on recruiting in “You can still trust the communists to be communists”.

They prey on the idealism and arrogance of youth.
“You’re smart, you should be part of this elite group that’s trying to change the world for the better.”

How hypocritical. It’s the corrupt liberal media that, on an hourly basis, is not telling the truth. It’s merely a propaganda machine for the Godless Dems.

It’s no longer just FR and other conservative sites that are exposing the MSM for its corrupt bias and anti-conservative propaganda. Virtually everyday I see loads of anti-MSM comments on a wide variety of websites and blogs. People know what the MSM is up to and they no longer trust them or lend them any credibility.

Exactly. We should be running commercials showing “this is the turnout for the Ryan (or Romney) rally on such and such date and place” but the media ignored it and instead covered this meager turnout for oblamer. (we’d have to provide our own video for that)

Show them over and over. Even if that doesn’t shame the msm into more balanced coverage, we will have made our point.

They did the exact same thing during the Chick-fil-A event.

Local station showed up and ignored the line-out-the-door people and focused on TWO homos.

Despicable.

They may not be all that smart, but at least they eat well.

This type of media action doesn’t surprise me. Mrs. RQSR went to USC back in the sixties. She worked in one of the offices.

She used to tell me about the one, or two students with signs sitting around on the lawn, and she’d ignore them, go about her business, but when she got home, and turned on the television the one or two students sitting about on the lawn with placards denouncing whatever turned into hundreds of students milling about on the verge apparently of a riot instead of just a couple of them holding placards lounging about.

Random footage of students heading to classes I guess gives the appearance of almost rioting as they aggressively walk from one side of the campus to the other, and then mix that with a couple of protestors with signs, and voila you have a news story.
