“I can not believe that that the MSM and the ignorant have re-elected obama.”
If I hear one more Freeper posting about how “The Old Media is DEAD!”, I’m going to rhetoricly slap the sh*t out of them.
Time and again, Freepers as a group have discounted the power of Mainstream Media Propaganda. If this doesn’t prove to you exactly how powerful it really is, you a living in a bottle.
Obama owes them everything. When he was campaigning in 2007 Obama was floating the idea of newspaper bailouts. Since the big city dailies are in bankruptcy or close to it Obama would mention this idea to every publisher he met as he campaigned across the country. Theoretically it would be a private-public partnership. A couple of Democrats wrote a bill but even most Democrats were afraid of it and it died a quiet death. But drunk with power now, they'll probably try to resurrect it.
