"Your initial premise is wrong. ....MSM is not mainstream"

Correct but irrelevant. 4 years ago I tried to get freepers to drop MSM from our vocabulary in favor of my favorite "Old Media" for the reason you stated. "Mainstream" reinforced their power.

They are what they are, no matter what we call them now. I still favor Old Media and it's not too late to start. They will soon be Old Media.

Wouldn’t it be more effective to establish “trackers” to follow every TV “journalist” everywhere they go, and catch them in illicit/illegal/immoral acts and get them on audio/video? Or date them? Or intern for them as plants and record their biased activities? Why not just destroy them?

We need an RNC Chair who will go to the networks and tell them if you want to interview any of our guys, here are the ground rules, and if you don’t agree, we won’t have any of them on your program, time to start playing hardball with the media.


Bingo.

Obama, pelosi, axelrod, etc do not EVER appear on Rush’s show. They would refuse a debate with him as moderator.

But our team scrambles with eager wet panties to get mocked and ridiculed by every last liberal host. “thank you, Katie, may I have another?”

WE NEED TO REFUSE TO APPEAR ON THESE SHOWS TO BE MOCKED AND HAVE OUR WORDS TWISTED.

Enough of answering Stephy and Chris Wallace’s “Exactly which day did you stop beating your wife?” Questions!!!

Boycotts of the media advertiSers will never work because their advertisers are so varied and they all use the same networks, including Fox. NO, we NEED to personalize it by getting names of high ranking news media presidents, and CEO,reporters, TALKING HEADS, etc. and make sure they are PAYING THEIR IRS Income Taxes, not cheating on their wives/husbands,getting drunk driving citations,, getting the full report on these traitors, and reporting it to anybody who will listen to us.
Also, boycoting won’t work, because OBOBO will just give them a bailout $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

I don't watch any news media shows. I watch Fox until it kicks me off. Fox is left of center. We should consider gaining a majority interest in a network via mutual funds and put out news rather than propaganda.

Oh, I do agree. It’s the one thing I hate about my beloved Rush Limbaugh’s show. I’ve disliked it here too on FR.

Posting or discussing liberal news articles and reacting to their outrageous lies. Sheesh! Let’s evolve beyond that!

Don’t discuss these articles except in utter by the way belittlements. Treat these articles or shows like we would a serial killer’s manifesto. DON’T VALIDATE THEIR EGOS by talking about them.

Spend time instead on discussing only OUR MEDIA or real news stories. If you use NYT or Compost as your vetting source, still don’t quote them or let us know that was one f your vetting sources. Help them DIE.

Remember, THESE SOURCES DO NOT ANY LONGER MEAN TRUTH. If we went by them, we would never know Benghazi existed or that Barack Obama never had a real passport or SS number, or that there may have been any voter fraud. It’s not the truth.

Thanks for saying this.

agreed...

“I’m hesitant to boycott commercial enterprises (the companies that advertise), but they must know they’ll be wasting their money on a huge portion of their audience if they advertise on NBC News.”

we need to do this- its critical....find out the conservative companies that advertise on NBC networks and constantly harass them- but we need to point to specific examples of discrimination or “political incorrectness” the station participate in....

Wow way to go Chiller.!!

It's easy to do! All we do is concentrate on the nightly news sponsors.

We boycott them and do all we can to help their competition. It will work.

If nothing else it will cost the news dept. more to run their operation as potential sponsors/ad agencies in this case, think twice about running their spots on nbc. The DBM has to pay a price for their defective journalism.They can't keep ignoring stories like Benghazi and distorting all the rest toward the Dear Leader without paying a price.

Somewhere along the line they have to get back to straight news with how, when, where, who and why the emphasis not agenda journalism.

Dissing sponsor will help what helps even more is showing partiality to competitors of nbc news sponsors. Let them know its a double whammy not only will news sponsors not get bang for their buck but they will get hit even harder with us favoring their competition.

(I don’t know that this will be successful unless you can cut off the nursing home TV sets.).....and the television sets in the public school classrooms across America where teachers are mandated to show Channel One News (or the schools will loose their free govt. television sets). I used to turn it off, but was reprimanded. Now I require my students to support or refute what is presented, but that will end soon, as requirements to “present lessons only in line with the mandated curriculum” increase daily. This is the kind of crap your kids are being indoctrinated with if they are in govt. school: http://www.channelone.com/news/islam/
Channel One News partners with NBC and CBS and reaches over six million students per day...by mandate!

I personally started Wednesday, and missed today's MTP. What gems did I miss ? I understand from our Sunday News show thread that DNC Dave failed to mention Benghazi....as if Patreaus had no relation to Benghazi.

I understand however, DNC Dave is such a cool guy that he's mastered that new dance and demonstrated on a Today show a few weeks back. NBC News is embarrassing.

Yes. There is only one caveat with Glen: he is a devout Momron and will spin anything remotely connected to the LDSinc in a good light for MomronISM. Other than that, he is dedicated to getting the truth out to the people of this nation. I'm sure the globalist will not let that go on much longer. He will either fall in line with what they want or he will be stopped, one way or the other.

One thing folks are failing to register is the reality that Mitt Romney can not afford to be a hardass on the vote fraud, because he cannot afford the neagtive press it would generate toward MormonISM/LDSinc. He was the ideal candidate for the democraps to cheat because he would not chance the negatives vermin media would flood the airwaves with regarding MormonISM if he failed to go along ...

You shouldn't, but it's not tripe (tasty I understand)

Quite the contrary, it's destructive anti-American RATaganda...it needs to be attacked, challenged, and countered by the truth.

The best thing Newt can do is set up a Debate Boot Camp online course,
that should be mandatory training for any serious candidate. That would include highlights of his in-your-face replies to stupid debate moderators during the primaries.

It was the usual pap DNC dave's e-mail must have told him to go all out for immigration reform spelled "amnesty" and how the pubbies have to go hard left if they are ever going to get anywhere.

No surprises. I will make a list of their sponsors tonight and tomorrow night just in case they have weekend sponsors and during the week sponsors. So we can see who is who. We have to be careful about overlap between nbc and other nets.

The media has been heavily biased for some time, but starting 2008 it outright went from biased to activist and now essentially indistinguishable from being state controlled like in authoritarian regimes.

I’m not sure how this plan would help.

TV ratings are still, as always, determined by Neilsen (see wikipedia entry for how it works). Unless you’re a Neilsen household, there’s no mechanism by which your cable company or anyone else tracks or reports what you’re watching.

As of 2009, there were 114,500,000 U.S. television households. Of those, only 25,000 total American households (approx 0.02183% of the total) were Neilsen households.

Per JimRob, FreeRepublic had 273,808 unique viewers on election night, which is probably about our peak for the year. Of that number, it’s unlikely that even 1 or 2 of those viewers are connected to Neilsen’s metered ratings system.

A formal boycott of sponsors would probably be more affective if you were able to organize enough FReepers in a formal effort, though history tells me that’s a little like herding cats.

I appreciate that you’re trying to do something to make a difference, and hope you meet with some success.
