Proof Positive That The Mainstream Media Is The Propaganda Wing Of The Democrat Party

November 1, 2010

We’ve seen it all over the place.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, the mainstream media had what Bernie Goldberg described as a “A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.”  And he backed it up with cold hard facts.

For the last two years, we have had one crude, dishonest and even vile dismissal of the conservative tea party movement.  With the most vivid example in my memory being CNN anchor Anderson Cooper saying, “It’s hard to talk when you’re tea-bagging.”  Which was a gross, crude sexual pun to describe decent, intelligent people.

The tea party movement was mocked and dismissed by the media until it was obvious they were deliberately lying about the movement; and then the media started to demonize them and label them as racist.  Even though in reality the tea party better reflects the racial composition of the country than any other political movement.

We’ve had the mainstream media bombard us with the message that tea party supporters were some kind of  ignorant, fanatic, fascist hillbillies and tools of some conservative elite puppetmasters when in actual fact they are actually considerably wealthier and better educated than the population at large.

Joe Miller is a case in point.  The Senate candidate from Alaska – who is backed by and who in fact espouses the tea party platform – is not only a West Point graduate, but is also a graduate of Yale Law School.  But since those facts refuted the mainstream media narrative about tea partiers as ignorant hillbillies, they were ignored.

There’s the petty vindictive stuff.  Such as the TV ad that Christine O’Donnell paid to run on a public channel – and even held a rally timed for its airing – only to have the network “conveniently” forget to run it.  Twice.  Like “Oops.  Sorry.  Don’t think for even a second that it’s because government-funded media aren’t in the pocket of liberals, though.”

And there’s the more institutionally biased stuff.  Such as the fact that the mainstream media refused to use the word “extremist” to describe anyone on the left, but ONLY used the word to describe conservatives and tea partiers. Which simply proves that there is an institutional ideological leftwing bias across the board.  When you turn on or turn the pages of any mainstream media bias, you are simply pumping leftwing bias into your brain.

But all of that, as bad as it is, is nothing compared to the true black cockroach souls of the mainstream media and “journalists” of today.

This story says it all.

From RadioViceOnline:

News staff from the CBS affiliate KTVA in Anchorage inadvertently left a message on the cell phone of Joe Miller’s campaign spokesperson yesterday.   Nick McDermott, the KTVA assignment editor, had just ended a phone call with Miller’s spokesperson but missed the ‘end call’ button on his iPhone.

The conversation between McDermott, and those who are assumed to be other KTVA staff, goes on for about one minutes and 15 seconds. The audio and transcript are below. They seem to conspire to create stories that will harm the election efforts of Miller including looking for registered sex offenders and child molesters who happen to support Miller’s campaign. Then they suggest staging a Rand Paul-type moment where someone attacks Miller.

Not surprising to me. Remember, many journalism students join the profession to make a difference, not to report the news. When they realize they are not making a difference — in this case electing their preferred choice for Alaska’s next senator — they start making up the news.

Big Journalism had the breaking story, and Gov. Sarah Palin let the Fox News Sunday audience know about the story this morning during an interview with Chris Wallace. She called the conspirators “corrupt bastards” (video below) this morning and reminded Americans this is just one example of what it has been like for Joe Miller when the GOP establishment, Democrats, the Washington elites, and the left-wing media machine are all gunning for you.

Written transcript follows…

FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you have the experience but that’s what I would do…I’d wait until you see who shows up because that indicates we already know something… [Laughter [INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters…

MALE REPORTER: Oh yes…Joe Miller’s…uh…get a list of people/campaign workers which one’s the molester [INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE VOICE: You know that of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of them will be a registered sex offender.[Laughter]

MALE REPORTER: We need to find that one person… [INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE REPORTER: The one thing we can do is ….we won’t know….we won’t know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what the… ‘Hey Joe Miller punched at rally.’

FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul…I like that. [Laughter]

FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.

So reporters from a CBS affiliate made a call to Joe Miller’s campaign, and then these people who are so damn smart (versus all the ignorant hillbillies in the tea party movement) forgot to hang up the phone before plotting to destroy the GOP candidate they had just called.  And it was all gloriously caught on air.

Does anyone honestly think any of these people are reporting or covering the political news fairly or honestly?

It’s not enough to call these reporters “leftwing.”  They are fascist.

CBS reporters are talking about deliberately seeking out stories that will “frame” Joe Miller as dangerous or unstable to sow seeds of fear in the electorate.  It’s a “November Surprise,” only they are looking to somehow create it.  And there’s no chance in hell that the Democrat is ever going to face that level of hard-core bias and outright animosity.

Think about this.  This incredibly cynical, deceitful, disingenuous and malicious attitude toward conservatives isn’t just happening in San Francisco; it’s happening in Alaska.  And Alaska is so conservative that the Democrat is only getting 30% of the vote.

If this kind of shocking media bias against the right is going on in a solidly red state such as Alaska, what is going on in your state?  Just how bad is it everywhere else?

As bad as the Democrat Party is, their dishonesty is NOTHING compared to the blatant dishonesty coming from the “journalists” who staff the mainstream media.

They’re supposed to report the truth in an objective, non-partisan manner; instead they look for dirt against conservatives and Republicans.

If the media reported fairly and honestly, we’d be talking about Democrats the way we talk about dinosaurs – as a giant behemoth that died out due to its own stupidity eons ago.  Instead they fabricate one story and falsify one “angle” after another.

And as a result of the mainstream media dishonesty, the Democrat Party has been allowed to become more and more and more corrupt.

Piss off a “journalist” tomorrow.  Vote for Republicans.

Liberals And Stupidity: The Homer Simpson Energy Idiots Club

September 15, 2008

we all know Homer Simpson, that ever-bumbling character on The Simpsons.  His two most entertaining characteristics are his tendency to create one scene of havoc after another – after which he walks away from the disasters he creates – and his continual belief that he has the world all figured out when in reality he is hopelessly stupid.

Homer Simpson is the paradigmatic symbol of the modern American liberal.

With that introduction, allow me to introduce the thinking of “Homer” Friedman:

Making America Stupid

By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN
Published: September 13, 2008

Imagine for a minute that attending the Republican convention in St. Paul, sitting in a skybox overlooking the convention floor, were observers from Russia, Iran and Venezuela. And imagine for a minute what these observers would have been doing when Rudy Giuliani led the delegates in a chant of “drill, baby, drill!”

I’ll tell you what they would have been doing: the Russian, Iranian and Venezuelan observers would have been up out of their seats, exchanging high-fives and joining in the chant louder than anyone in the hall — “Yes! Yes! Drill, America, drill!” — because an America that is focused first and foremost on drilling for oil is an America more focused on feeding its oil habit than kicking it.

The question immediately at hand is, “Who is making who stupid?”

You get this?  Oil rich nations WANT the United States to drill for their own oil, because by doing so Americans will continue to be oil-addicts and never address their addiction.

Now, Homer Friedman loves to wax eloquent about economic matters.  But what makes him such a “Homer” – who would blithely create a disaster that he would ultimately simply walk away from while never acknowledging what a fool he is – is how the facts fly in the face of his little “Homer-like” reality.

There are at least three things wrong with Homer Friedman’s position.

Just over a week ago, the Times printed an article, and the title said it all: “Iran calls for production cuts as oil price plummets.”

Why on earth would Iran want to cut production as the price of oil plummets?  Because by producing less oil, the price of oil would correspondingly increase, and they can increase the price they get per barrel.  This is THE LAW (not the ‘theory,’ not the ‘Republican conspiracy’) OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

The Times article points out that, “Crude oil has lost more than a quarter of its value since the price peak in July of $147 per barrel.”

Question for the non-Homers among you: what happened in July?

On July 14, President Bush lifted the ececutive ban on offshore drilling, that had been in place since 1990, and urged Congress to likewise lift its ban which had been in place since 1981.

And what happened in the immediate aftermath as an immediate result?

Another title says it all: “President Bush Lifts Offshore Drilling Ban, Crude Drops over $6.00 a Barrel.”

And three subsequent updates appear above the text of the article:

Update: July 18, 2008 Crude Oil has dropped to $128.88 a Barrel

Update: July 17, 2008 Crude Oil has dropped to $130.73 a Barrel

Update July 15, 2008 Crude Oil has dropped to $138.74 a Barrel Biggest drop in 17 years

And the price of oil has continued to drop in the aftermath of the genuine possibility that Americans will begin to harness their own oil resources, and in so doing increase the supply of oil on the market.

Only Homer Friedman, and the unrelentingly stupid psuedo-intellectuals who dominate liberal thought could be such, well, Homers that they would claim that big oil producing countries would actually WANT the United states to increase its production of oil.

This is grab-you-by-the-collar-and-slap-you-repeatedly-in-the-face stupidity.

When I was in boot camp, our mercilessly pragmatic drill sergeants – confronted with the naive theoretical idiocy of one of the recruits under their charge – would ask, “You went to college, didn’t you, boy?  Only an intellectual could have thought of something so incredibly stupid.”

And only the New York Times would be dumb enough to print it (You know, the same New York Times that thought John McCain’s editorial piece was beneath them?).

But that is only one-third of the ridiculous, mind-numbing stupidity of Homer Friedman and his fellow gang of misfiring liberal neurons.

The second third of Friedman’s claim is that – by drilling for our own oil – the United States somehow signs a pact with the devil such that we will never be able to end our dependence on oil.

Modern liberals have always despised the so-called Domino theory, so it is no wonder they would completely butcher it when they try to put it into practice.

But what? Excuse me?

T. Boone Pickens’ ad says, “drill, drill, drill” in his new ad, even as he calls for increased investment in alternative energy.  He doesn’t seem to think that drilling for domestic oil will eternally damn us.  But then again, he’s not a Homer.

OF COURSE WE CAN DRILL, AND SIMULTANEOUSLY PURSUE INTELLIGENT ALTERNATIVE ENERGY.  AND ONLY A TOTAL “HOMER” WOULD THINK WE COULDN’T.

If we want to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, nothing we can do would help us achieve that end better than harnessing our own oil resources.

The final third of the Homer-like stupidity is the belief that we will be able to stop – or even significantly reduce – our oil consumption in the near-term.

The simple fact is that the United States – and the world – depends on oil to meet nearly 90% of its energy requirements.  And nothing on the horizon has even the potential to meet our energy needs and replace our need for oil.

And as our population – and the planet’s – increases, our need for oil will continue to increase proportionately.

A couple of months ago I wrote an article titled, “Obama’s Absolutely Inexcusable Non-Energy Plan.”  Because “Homer” Obama is a card-carrying member of the “Homer Simpson Energy Idiot Club” as well.  But given the fact that Homer Hussein Obama is running for President of the United States, he is the most dangerous “Homer” in the world.

The sad fact is that I am probably actually insulting Homer Simpson.  Dumb as he is, he probably has enough sense to realize every time time he puts gas in his tank that we need to have enough gas to put in our tanks in order to keep our cars running.  “Homer” Friedman and “Homer” Obama don’t get that, because they live in a world of theory, and think that non-existent abstract alternative energy will meet our needs.  And they are willing to gamble our national future on that discovery.

It is Homer Friedman and Homers just like him who are “Making America Stupid.”
