No more liberal media for me ever since the election. No news watching on CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, etc. and no reading of liberal columnists or liberal newspapers. If they want a socialist country they can do it without me.
We all have to come to terms with the truth in that the majority of the American media is working towards a one- world socialist government rule. Control everything from birth to when they plan your death.
Oh... NOW they want their credibility back.
The leftist journOlisters can all drop dead and I wouldn’t shed a tear. I might even fire off some fireworks.
Leave us not forget the mass media pile-on of Romney when he DARED CRITICIZE that mealy-mouthed US Embassy in Egypt’s press release. Why it was instantly ridiculed and then reversed-englished to make it appear that Romney was the one not taking the Ambassador’s death seriously. To my mind that was a real demonstration of the entire MSM protecting Obama and the stench has never been so foul!
The change in tone of the “news” papers and alphabet networks is to help build pressure on the Repubs in the House to cave to the Dems demands. Notice the stories on how the Repubs look to cave-in on the fiscal cliff, while the Dems hold fast. Looks like the Dems are willing to go over the fiscal cliff, but they get no pressure from the “media” on this.
Consequences are the dead tree media will get a Federal bailout. Most probably in the form of an additional fee tacked on to our internet service which will be funneled back to them.
When half your potential customers are rooting for you to die, that is not a good business model.
As others debate whether the media is responsible for President Obamas reelection, one point is inescapable: the media is comprised of individuals with their own inherent biases. And it would be naïve for any of us to think those biases do not, at times, impact journalistic decisions.It would be nice to once again have journalism be "comprised of individuals with their own inherent biases again. That was the way it was back in the founding era up to the Civil War. Each newspaper had its own perspective, which was important to its readership. Kind of like talk radio stations . . .
But since the advent of the telegraph and the wire service, journalism claims objectivity - a self-negating claim - and delivers only uniformity in self-serving hype.
Our elections make audit trails impossible, and that was done with the relatively quiet complicity of senior members of both parties. Because US elections are unverifiable, their consequences should be treated as would any data collection activity where the data are unknown. Our votes are unknown. When a voter marks a ballot, but oversight of that ballot is lost because, either it is fed into an opaque machine with electro-optical reader with voter choices accumulated by an internal computer, that vote cannot be trusted - it is meaningless. When ballots are filled out - paper ballots are beginning to return as many know our elections are unverifiable - if those ballots are not counted by humans before leaving the observation of the multiparty precinct workers, they cannot be trusted. The count must be made before the ballots are handled in secret. Without that, our ballots are largely managed by Sec. of State employees, most of whom belong to the SEIU, behind closed doors.
Elections are mostly useful as propaganda tools. Reporting, for example, that 69% of US Jews voted for Obama, which is entirely unprovable, helps to discourage and divide different groups. The Christians who today are major supporters of Israel, who have many Holy sites in Israel, and know they will be destroyed if Muslims drive the Jews from Israel, are just one target. Christians wonder if these fools are worth trying to save when they appear unwilling to fight for themselves and their homeland.
When Haaratz, Israel's most liberal major newspaper, reports that about 85% of US citizens living in Israel voted for Romney, and anyone who knows a little about that community knows that many of those dual citizens living in Israel are liberal, and more secular than Jews in the US, the falseness of the reported 69% is obvious - but unprovable because we have no audit trail!.
Elections, like our Constitution, have a different role today than they did until about 30 years ago. Republicans have even accepted a federal court injunction prohibiting Republican, but not Democrat,poll watchers from being near any precinct where race could be an issue in the race. The Carter appointed who made that ruling 31 years ago returns from retirement every year to renew his order. Crony capitalists make money whether they win or lose elections, but today, it is all a charade, and both parties know it.
Pundits aren't comfortable with the unforgiving certainty of science or statistics. Criminal lawyers get a taste with the notion of chain-of-evidence, the notion that made OJ’s conviction impossible because the chain was broken. We have no chain of evidence for votes, and without it our elections are an empty tradition, but not representative of the voters they are supposed to reflect. We have, in effect, one party, and may as well all become Democrats, because they control the reported results for any election. Without paper, and local counts, we have no real elections.
Let’s face it - the MSM won this election even more than Obama did. We lost - big time. We lost because the MSM beat our guys and gals across the board.
I am convinced that Obama could really go all Hitler/Chavez/Morsi and the MSM would do nothing but make excuses for him. They’d make excuses until the last NY Times reporter got sent to the gulag and then they’d be all like: wow, what happened?!?!
I don’t see how we overcome the media, I just don’t.
I predict they will “grill” Rice and then make her SoS. It is a joke anymore.
Cancel your cable, pull your kids out of the communist indoctrination centers, cancel newspapers...
