Time for Freepers to "Occupy" the corrupt media??
Me

Posted on 09/27/2012 5:15:15 AM PDT by God luvs America

Like all of you i've had enough of the left wing bias from this nation's corrupt media. Considering how the media fell in love with the Occupy movement and how they've once again shown their hand to be corrupt and criminal, attempting to alter the outcome of a national election, why don't we turn the tables on them?? A coordinated date in October where conservative groups ban together and "occupy" media headquarters around the nation?? This would take some planning as well as some dedication on our parts but this can be done if we are steadfast. Ideas? Thoughts?? Connections to other conservative groups???


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: mediacorruption
I'm thinking not just Freepers but local Tea Party groups, other conservative action groups and the such....if this is going to work we need to pick one date in October..

I think a more effective tactic is to dump the media.... completely. Cable, newspaper subscriptions, everything.

We’re going to have to break our inexcusable and pathetic addiction to pop entertainment. I haven’t had t.v. for 3 years now, and I’m much better for it.

For those unable to attend because some people do have jobs, thanks to God and not Obama, we could all “occupy” msm websites. Most of us do not want to waste our time arguing with imbeciles, but on that specific day, their sites could be flooded with conservative comments and opinions.

They might realize that their are opinions other than the Democrat talking points that circulate in the media echo chamber every day.

I think educating media types about what happens to them in particular when a socialist dictator finally takes full control of the country would help.

They are the first ones who are rounded up and executed because they know too much, and have too much influence over the population.

Idiots like Chrissy Matthews thinks he will be getting some type of reward for the work he is doing to usher in socialism.

I don’t know how we could educate them, because they are so arrogant they won’t listen to anybody... but where there is a will, there is a way.

I dont understand why any one on our side,commentator,politician current or “X” would want to appear on any of these shows.
A good start would be for any conserve/Repub. to boycott appearances on any of them and let them continue to talk to themselves,something they do most of the time any way.

The only problem with this idea is that conservative actually work for a living so it would have to be a weekend.

Time for conservatives to start purchasing their own news outlets. Why are we pissed because Democrats have bought their own news outlets. We tried with Fox News but they turned out moderate. Now we need to buy an authentic conservative network. That is what the free market is all about.

I don’t like salesman in my home and vowed a few years ago I would not have my values assaulted in my own home via television (commercials or programs). So no cable or network television. Approved Cds only.

Can anyone think of a single conservative of sufficient wealth and ability (media skills and familiarity), to start up a new media network that would compete with (and eventually devour) some of the old and rotten ones?

I can think of one. Can’t think why he hasn’t done it yet.

I still don’t know what the purpose of this occupy movement is. I would suggest something more like FreeperFactcheck.org. But we’ve already been doing that for years. Just ask Dan Rather.

Glenn Beck is doing it right now with The Blaze. Many hours of content every day - soon to be a 24-hour network. The Blaze is currently on internet and Dish network, but will be on cable TV before long as well (they are currently in negotiations, as I understand it).

Absolutely...happy to do anything to help get the message to the MSM that we are NOT going to be stooges anymore...

Totally agree, naps...
Form a consortium of investors and be unashamedly conservative or even, just report the damn news with no semantic bias whatsoever.
How novel!

They'd just delete the conservative comments, like my local commie rag does regularly.

Then they'd claim it was because they'd been under attack by "fascists."

Our local commie Gannett newsrag now requires posting to go through Facebook. Their reader forums on hot topics used to get hundreds of responses, now a couple of dozen tops. And the balance seems to have skewed way left; I guess we conservatives don't want our houses vandalized or burned down or false charges brought against our businesses.

I still am trying to figure out how to spoof Facebook as to my identity and location.

So there is a silver lining to socialist dictatorship...

FreeRepublic News

Most cable outlets allow public access.

Could start with a format that is quite similar to what is available on the internet FreeRepublic. Present a headline, present some of the comments, discuss the issue.

We already know how to do this.

lol... I forgot to mention you will never hear about it. They just disappear. Their replacements will report their retirement or re-assignment to higher office for their contributions.

Our Pravda is migrating that way, too. They separated out their regular "columnists" as blogs and required Facebook (used to be able to reply to them on Disqus), so now all the comments are overwhelmingly from their fellow moonbats. Group hugs all around.

I've already been banned once from making comments through Disqus, so I've hijacked my husband's computer, changed my Disqus name and use his e-mail.

Not too sure how long that will last, cause I'm talking and I can't shut up. :-)

We don’t solve problems by camping out on the property o f others, pooping in the dirt.

We need ONE CONSERVATIVE MEDIUM that is true conservatism and 24/7 on TVs everywhere. I would like it to be Breitbart; that would be perfect.

How to make Breitbart a full fledged channel?? If we all put our money together... Does Breitbart have such a goal? They should also have comedy shows, because America gets most of its news today through comedy.

I’d like it to be like Rush Limbaugh — people accidentally listen / watch and then they find themselves to their surprise agreeing. They keep coming back and become educated conservatives.

Good idea BUT about 5 years too late.. maybe 10 years too late..

The window is closed.. the left wing is far too organized..
and I might say, IN CONTROL...

Obama OWNS the FBI, CIA, BATF, Justice Department, and literally ALL Executive Branch Bureaus.. and MORE..
They OWN most of the media, academia, even Wall Street.. and Holly Weird...

And if you think Myth Romney will clean house you’re delusional..
That is IF he doesn’t take a “DIVE” like Juan McLaim did..

Looks like Americas NOSE is not full enough of Obama YET!...
Its a bit early for “President for Life” to surface.. but I say about 2016 that will happen..

Barry “Papa Doc” Obama is still quite strong among the terminally ignorant..
Which is mostly every American..

I bet you think democracy is a good thing... and NOT Mob Rule by mobsters?..
America is fast becoming a democracy if its not already one..

Good idea but 5 years too late (I’m being nice) [more like 10 years]..

There is an antidote. Start your own newsblog and build your own newsgathering credibility by reporting that which the “real” media can’t/won’t report.

Pick one day.

Whatever it is we need to show solidarity.

Just like Chick filet day.

Something that does not interfer with work.

What is the most honest conservative paper out there?

Actually IF THE REPUBLICANS were smart.. which they are Not..
They would join with the democrats AND FORCE AMERICA INTO BANKRUPTCY..

When the democrats want to STOP short.. they could FORCE america to over extend and send us over the cliff..

NOW.. THAT WOULD BE SMART..
Then America could be re-built.. Nationalize the debt and ignore it.. A bankrupt America will have zero welfare..

Start with a NEW taxing system.. and a couple new political parties..

ok here we go...we need battle ready bloggers.

Here is your first opportunity.
Yes, this is mind boggling to you cephalic humans but trust me.

This picture of Romney writing “I love Ann” in the sand while he was in France on his mission. Needs to go viral.

Why because Women and especially young women love this and will see a different side of Romney.

Post the picture and just say “ I love Ann” too!

time to play the game folks!

Face book, twitter, tumblr.....do it, do it!

I would post the pic, but I dont know how on FR. ;)

I like it. Pick a day and it can be a weekend. There are shows that use the sidewalk as their studio. Think "Good Morning America" and others. Even local affiliates do this.
Make signs that highlight the news that is ignored and also the news that is misleading and those that are out right lies. The cameras will not be able to avoid the backdrop of headlines that the MSM buries on purpose.

I am game for this.

I think our best tactic would be, to flood the comments section of liberal media sites.. CNN, MSNBC, and ESPECIALLY Yahoo news.. But not to state we are conservative..instead lets take THIS tone.. “I voted for Obama in ‘08, as did most of my family and friends, but he’s been a failure..I’m not super crazy about Romney, but we need a change ...etc”
