Almost makes me want to see Obama deal with it for another four years, of course the media will cover for him, so there would be no “complete destruction of the progressive democrap party”...

I cannot wait to vote for Romney, despite him being a RINO, rather have him than Obama ANY day, week, month, year decade, century etc....

You forgot “he’s a Mormon so he holds creepy seances in his magic underwear to get policy direction from the Angel Moroni...”

(yes, I remember the charge that JFK was going to have an open hotline to the Vatican where American policy would really be decided)

Moroni is a hell of lot better than that chap stuck in a well that Obama gets his marching orders from.....

Good column. You report truths, some of which are obvious to us but unknown to the average Joe out there. And he desperately needs to know them for the good of the nation.

You clearly understand the media bias. The question, of course, is how do we respond.

I have found in many decades of fighting the Leftist bias, that those who exhibit it, simply cannot defend it, when they are properly attacked. With the media, the problem is not so easily addressed, because they have the ability to suppress criticism in their own venues--they simply refuse to print or broadcast what they do not like.

But it is important that Conservatives fully grasp how one-sided the argument--if it is ever allowed--will really be. The American heritage, that we try to defend, unlike every Leftist theory ever propounded, was never formulated by quacks, fantasizing about how they wanted the world to be. It was based, very clearly, on actual experience. (See America: Grounded On Experience & Reason.)

This is why, when we allowed the Founding Fathers' system to actually work as intended, we out-produced, out-achieved, every other people on earth. We must perfect our techniques for fighting back against those who are destroying our children's future. There really is no rational justification for the policies that are causing our problems.

No, the main stream media won't get away with this as long as we stand up with one voice and expose the truth that it was the main stream media who are the guilty one's who brought all this misery unto the American people by supporting this regime.
I am not accepting defeat in face of a daunting task that the main stream media is immune to criticize.

We should ALL be scared to death that the media lets Obama do anything and doesn't call it on anything.

Great piece. Freerepublic still the best. The first 2 paragraphs are perfect. I thought the exact same things and haven't seen them articulated anywhere. You probably said it better than I could have. This needs to be repeated all over the Internet:

The media has been in a slumber for the last 4 years; not that the world has been quiet. We have lived in a world replete with economic collapse, international conflict, and social unrest, a time of tribulations and consequence, the likes of which we have not seen in over 70 years. But a media which gleans only what it desires to further a socialist agenda has found no purchase on these stories. They had achieved their goal of placing a true socialist in the Presidency, and no bad news, no bad outcomes would be spoken of during his realm.

This Obama couldn't tell a hole in the ground from its ass as was evident in the debate. the media created a false Obama and a false Romney as it creates a false reality. The media got Obama elected by demonizing Bush and Palin. the media got a socialist creep who never had a real job elected president of the U.S. . Only 4 years after in this debate did we finally see the real Obama. Hope the media won't get this Obama monster elected again. The media is responsible for all the problems we have including the ever expanding government which is the problem

Government is the problem. Why do idiot liberals trust government so much? To democrats/liberals government is their God. Socialism is a religion to these marxist/democrat peices of crap, including to that piece of crap Obama. Private ownership distributes power among millions of private firms and 100’s of millions of individuals. democrats think it's better to concentrate power on one government , one individual( obama or chavez for example) . As if one individual could simultaneously run millions of businesses better than all these business men put together at the same time. One liberal Obama couldn't run a lemonade stand much less one real business, much less a million businesses at the same time. This Obama couldn't tell a hole in the ground from its ass as was evident in the debate. liberalism is pure lunacy . how's that government working in government schools, government project housing? Can't even teach kids basics in 12 years.

Posted this yesterday:

With endless scandals and created crisis’s being ignored by the Fourth Estate, and those of us who care sounding like so many barking dogs, I feel the population grows numb.

I miss the old media. The media that “hates” the President, the media that scrutinizes every nuance of everything the Commander in Chief does or doesn’t do.

Should Romney overcome this unilateral assault on our republic and prosperity to become The President, I believe my pining for a return of the traditional role of the press will be resolved. 37 posted on Monday, October 08, 2012 9:33:56 AM by John 3_19-21 (Desperation leads to curious events)

We should all be scared to death of this Obama winning again. If Obama wins then the U.S.A. will be like Venezuela( tanks in the street, no food in supermarkets, bureaucrats rationing everything) and the media will cover for Obama.

Don't even say that in jest that this monster Obama should get elected.

This Obama marxist could send the EPA and IRS to put us in re education camps tomorrow and the media would make sure no one heard about it. The media has hidden that Obama has gone around congress and abused power as in passing the Dream act Amnesty by itself. no one has heard of Obama’s abuse of power.

What Chavez is doing in Venezuela , that is what Obama is doing here. Socialsists are all the same. socialism is a religion.

We should all be scared to death of this Obama winning again. The U.S.A. will be like Venezuela and the media will cover for Obama.

" I will only be satisfied that justice has been done when I see every last one of them - anchorclowns, so-called reporters, lame pundits, editors, and the rest - consigned to a job for which they are actually qualified: something like cleaning toilets "

These active enablers who are just as culpable of America's decline also deserve some jail time in supporting this fraud.
Guilt by association should be the cry of the land.
We know very well when they are held to accountability they will cry " FREE SPEECH " but, a criminal enterprise like the Main Stream Media has nothing to do with " FREE " SPEECH " and reporting the news.

The main stream media IS a criminal enterprise.

8. The world is on fire. Russia and China are playing for keeps and are eating our lunch. The Arab Spring bloomed into a thuggish Islamic caliphate. The world has the lowest respect for us in history and our enemies do not fear us.

9. We are at war and Americans are dying. The flag draped coffins have been increasing, despite the lack of nightly tallies. Peace Movement protests will magically reappear as a ubiquitous daily phenomenon. Deep concern will be deeply analyzed. Personal stories of disillusioned soldiers will be the norm.

It might be a vanity - but a very insightful one... Save it - if Romeny wins it'll be even more fun to read... the MSM is totally predictable.

I think you have pretty much nailed it. Age old problem...republicans (to greater or lesser degrees) have to clean up the mess left by the rats.

The OLD media and news print media that bought ink by the barrel can't compete with font by the keystroke.... no wonder ( and among other reasons ) why they want to shut down the internet therefore shutting down free speech.

Obama's executive order having the ability to shut down the internet the stimulus and bail out for the old news print media ?

If Romney wins he shouldn't grant interviews or take questions from any media source who hasn't proved their impartiality. Cut them off completely. If they're going to make crap up at least deprive them of the appearance of legitimacy. SOMETHING has to be done to injure these corrupt bast*rds.

Simple -- make Newt Gingrich your press secretary.

The main stream media IS a criminal enterprise.

And the media is the enemy of America and the enemy of freedom. The media are socialists/democrats hacks posing as reporters. Anything that advances socialism/democrats is news and the media makes sure everyone is talking about that on their coffee breaks. .Anything that hurts Obama/socialism/democrats is not news and is hidden or minimized.

There is a radio maggot here in southern Louisiana who has a monopoly wwl radio, and its name is Garland Robinette (yes real name lol) and it continually says that there is no media bias . what a jerk and many believe it. it pretends to be centrist but it's not it is a socialist , fools a lot here.

" We should ALL be scared to death that the media lets Obama do anything and doesn't call it on anything. "

Being scared has nothing to do with it for most people.

People being concerned for the welfare of their families, their future, their children's future ? yes of course they are concerned....
To describe what a lot of people are feeling towards the main criminal enterprise media is: mistrust, ticked off, scorn, loathing, contempt towards the media.... being afraid of them is the farthest thing from their minds.

I’m scared to death of Obama and the media.We should all be afraid of Obama gets elected for many reasons but just one of them is that the media will let Obama get away with anything and will let Obama do anything no matter how evil or destructive , and the media will cover for it. Are you afraid?

“Homelessness” will re-emerge as a massive social problem, causing our national conscience to twinge.

That is one of my favorites to track between democrat and republican presidents and news coverage, I have been watching the media interest in "the homeless" since the late 1970s, it is amazing how the media interest comes and goes based on the party in the white house.
