Now I realize that within this new alternative media there exists some jealosy,. I sense that some people dont want to give the blogosphere the full credit. They have to parcel it out because every body wants a piece of the action; this is quite normal, this is human nature. The fact of the matter is that it was the blogosphere and it was a couple of sites: Powerline and FreeRepublic. And FreeRepublic has been one of the most impugned blogs / websites in the history of websites by the very institution that has been brought down.
When Dan Rather talked about partisan political operatives, he means those who lurk at FreeRepublic. Who is FreeRepublic, its ordinary Americans liberals look down at ordinary Americans, dont know have enough decision making power, [?] do the right thing, not smart enough
You dont know how much it grates on them at CBS that its something like FreeRepublic or one of their chat rooms or one of the FReepers there or the Powerline you have no idea that it irritates them that that kind of person brought them down. An average, ordinary untrained journalist that you just do not know how this irritates them inside. More than the fact that they got caught, its who caught them that irritates them.
And, so just as I started out I was a fad, and I was a liar, and I made it up and I was bad for America and I posed threats to democracy, as the cover of Time said. So now the same things are being said about the bloggers. Fox news has had its turn and we all continue rotating in the criticism carousel of the left.
Hey ozzie, you're stuttering a bit there, fella. LOL
Score one for the good guys!
The Iron Triangle of the NEW MEDIA.
Thanks to Buckhead and others we HAVE......arrived.
Raved on about us at least six times.
"Said we were scum of the earth to the elite media."
Everyone is scum of the earth to the elite media. Everyone except the dems that is.
Good to see he's changed his tune.
Way Cool ... Just as Rush was denigrated and dismissed early in his career, so are FReeRepublic and the Bloggers ... and the elite can't stand that. So says Rush. But guess what, folks ... we ain't goin' anywhere.
Site is already slowing down. Look, I will be happy to have a slow connection to FR if it means that more "ordinary people" join our cause.
FR metioned by Rush.
Proud Ordinary American Freeper reporting for duty!!!!
No he isn't. He's talking about people corrupting the process.
When during the show? I am on delay here.
The site is creeping like a decrepit turtle right now.
We're looking good. And I've noticed newbies who are very interested in getting the facts from us freepers. Enlightening America, one freeper at a time!
Rush talking about how irritated CBS is not at just by being caught but by who caught them... FREEPERS!
Are we really "normal" like Rush says?? I always thought we were "above average!"
