The Credibility Point Is a Dam About To Burst?

Posted on 10/14/2012 5:46:57 PM PDT by tsowellfan

Just as Gallup finally began polling likely voters last week, the media is rapidly approaching the point of no return. That will be the time when they absolutely, positively have to start reporting what is really going on or fully lose all of their credibility.

Piers Morgan’s pseudo-endorsement of Mitt Romney is one example of this happening...

How about spending $3 billion + every day that we do not take in as revenue. We either print it or borrow that much every day.

I think Laura Logan is doing some serious damage among the media types. Many of them know her and are listening.

I agree; either the media reports some reality or they become irrelevant.

Some care nothing of the Obama’s record because they’re horrified by whatever evil they impute on Romney. I’ve tried convincing some very smart people who just can’t get past the “vulture capitalist” moniker.

Bain would be a losing issue for Obama if the debate primarily stayed on that issue.

Ya know what? I won’t read or listen to a media that reports when it HASSSSSS to report.

Imagine frequenting a church that mentioned God when it HAAAAAD to —would you go there...?

I no longer own a TV and I’m MUCH happier...

They are trying to re-invigorate their base.
Throwing red meat to the dogs is the best way to do that.
IMHO, they are just trying to keep their defeat in Nov from being a history making blow-out of catastrophic proportions......

The MSM have absolutely no credibility to lose. They are Obama butt-monkeys and nothing more. Everything they say or print is a slanted lie designed to beguile the masses and usher in their desired one-world dictatorship.

At least a vulture has the good grace to wait until you're dead before they eat you.

It’s 1985 at the Rathskeller of Anytown University. A balding, pony tailed aging hippie professor is sharing a brew with one of his punk rocker students.......

Aging Hippie Professor: So you get it, right? America is the cause of all the world’s problems.

Punk rocker student: Absolutely, man, I mean absolutely, professor.

Aging Hippie Professor: I dig Crosby, Stills & Nash, and you dig Husker Du and The Cure, but we see eye to eye on world affairs, eh?

Punk rocker student: Damn straight we do! Maybe if we could elect a President who sees things the way that we do, we could transform America into the kind of country it ought to be, and all the world’s problems would be solved, since we’re the cause of those problems.

Aging Hippie Professor: Well, a President like that would have to come from either my generation or your generation.

Punk rocker student: Yeah, a Baby Boomer or a GenXer, or maybe someone who was born right in between, someone born in the early 60’s.

Aging Hippie professor: And imagine if they were the 1st Black President! No one would dare to accuse them of trying to purposely undermine America’s evil Capitalist, racist Imperialist ways, out of fear of being accused of racism.

Punk rocker student: Ha, that’s great, I love it. Let’s have another beer, and let’s remember this conversation. Maybe one day, it’ll all come true.

The press has been completely bogus for at least forty-five years since I started paying attention. When I cancelled my Minneapolis Star and Tribune subscription I told them this was the reason for the cancellation.

Why would anyone expect them to get religion today?

Piers Morgan’s pseudo-endorsement of Mitt Romney is one example of this happening...

If he isn't fired, this might prove interesting.

You never know, they may pull out some sort of "October Surprise" and pull out of the remaining debates.

2 days is running kind of close though. It'd have to be something major that all of the traitor-media has an excuse to jump on.

Yup, we cannot forget that on one of the recent elections the MSM almost doubted the election results because they were not consistent with the exit polling.

How about this...

In 2008, Obama promised to cut the national debt in half, which was around $10 trillion at the time, so, he was targeting a reduced debt to around $5 trillion. In 2012, the national debt is 16+ trillion dollars, or three times higher than what he promised. That’s more than 300% more than what he promised the American people.

That would make for a good commercial on its own.

I thought this next debate was to be confined to foreign policy. No?

Iran
Israel
China
Russia
Libya

Threat levels?
Defense size/strategies?
Decreasing foreign energy dependence (touches on domestic, to be sure)?
Foreign Campaign Donations?!
United States as World Leader vs. World Citizen?

I got an email today about how BO has issued 923 Executive Orders—YES 923. Most are orders for government to take over every aspect of American life. Title of the email was “the dictator” Romney needs to talk about this.

I don’t think we should debate with one more liberal moderator, another liberal camera crew and productions crew that highlight things dems want to see. Let’s just call it off - or invite Obama to debate with Rush Limbaugh as the moderator. I’m really tired of the MSM scam - the ‘we’re objective’ crap. They’re not... and we should act like we know it.

The last debate is. The one after this next one.

I did hear that this next one will have some foreign policy too.

Well, the media doesn’t have to come clean. Everyone knows they are biased, and the press has decided that it doesn’t matter.

But the polling companies are going to have to come clean or they will lose their credibility, and it actually matters to them.

That's good, but I'd make the last line:

"That’s over 300% more disastrous debt than he promised the American people."
