The “Objective” Media.

Posted in Culture, Media, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2009 by thedoyle

Can we finally all agree that there is no “objective” media? Perhaps if everyone stood up once and for all and said there isn’t any objective media anymore then the Media would finally take its mask off and we’d see them for who they really are. Until that time, I guess we’re not supposed to pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.

This weekend, Obama did the rounds on the Sunday News shows…well not ALL of the Sunday News shows, he didn’t appear on Fox News…I’ll get back to that point later. In theory doing news interviews with the self-proclaimed “Fourth Branch” of Government should be a harrowing experience for a Politician. The Media is supposed to be the watchdog but for Obama its more like a lapdog. Newsbusters.org did a round-up of Obama on the various talk shows and it was far from walking into the lion’s den.

The Media needs to drop the pretense and tell everyone what everyone already knows, that except for talk radio and Fox news the Media openly roots for, protects and promotes Obama. The Media turned a deaf ear to Van Jones until AFTER he resigned, they turned a deaf ear to ACORN’s corrupt and illegal activities until they were exposed and now they are trying to publicly indict slime the ones who exposed the corruption. Mediamatters.org, which is supposedly a watchdog of the media but is in reality just another Liberal swamp of fevered egos, also attacked the messenger and lied while doing it.

Now I get back to Fox. Liberals hate Fox. HATE, with a passion that ought to be reserved for enemies of the country. In fact they seem to hate Fox more than actual enemies who have attacked us. Fox is kind of like the Picture of Dorian Grey, with Liberals being Dorian Grey. Its a reminder of how ugly they are and so they loathe it, but they can’t help sneaking up to the attic to look at it. Fox has the highest ratings of any network, it has the largest audience. If you are trying to sell an idea, wouldn’t you want to get that idea to the most amount of people? So why wouldn’t Obama want to go on Fox? Its because he knows going on a show with Chris Wallace means getting actual probing questions whereas going on a show with Chris Matthews means getting the media equivalent of a handjob.

I think Lewis Black joked that politicians should be forced to wear stickers of who gives them money like NASCAR drivers, the Media should be forced to wear their political affiliations on their chest as well, not that we don’t already know them.

The Media does it again.

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2009 by thedoyle

So yesterday there was a large rally in DC protesting Obama’s healthcare reform plan, Obama’s out of control Liberals friends in Congress, and all of the Dem’s spending habits. How many showed up is still being debated but it was big and its part of the Tea Party protests going on since earlier this year.

The media has, since the beginning of the protests, done everything they can to oppose the protests. From making fun of the protesters to vilifying them. One repeated charge has been the media’s claim that the people [rptesting are all right-wingers who hate Obama so much that they have made posters of Obama with a Hitler mustache. The signs the Media showed months ago were actually from the Lyndon LaRouche PAC, which is a far left group. The signs they showed were easily identifiable as being from the LaRouche PAC because it said so on the posters, but the Media had no interest in telling the actual facts they were more interested in slandering the protesters as evil racist hateful right-wingers.

Last night the AP put out a story about the latest protest in DC and not only did it trot out the usual picture it again failed to distinguish the LaRouche protesters from the actual protesters.

Here is the Pic they included in the side bar of the story:
Taxpayer Rally

The pic clearly shows larouchepac.org on the poster but that is not mentioned in the story itself, instead it makes it seem as though larouchepac.org is on the same side as the protesters, but the fact is the LaRouche people are only protesting that Obama does not go far enough. They want a single-payer system which is what Obama wants as well but knows he can’t get it right away. This would be an important fact, I would think, yet the AP fails to mention it.

The Media has been letting many facts slide lately, from their refusing to delve into the Edwards affair during the Democratic Primaries to more recently completely ignoring the story of Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones till AFTER he had resigned to ignoring all of ACORN’s many illegal activities to its continued slanted reporting on the opposition to Obama’s policies, the Media has abdicated its role as objective news reporters.

If the Media cannot or will not do its job then they deserve to fail and go out of business and many news outlets are suffering greatly. Newspapers are going out of business due to poor circulation (I will admit that the advent of online advertising hasn’t helped the papers either since that is most of their revenue but circulation is down as well), the New York Times is in serious danger (good riddance), the ratings of the major networks news at 6 pm are dropping like stones and even cable news outlets like CNN and MSNBC are being pummeled by the dreaded evil Fox News (the left’s bogeyman).

So be it. The Media did all it could to get Obama elected and they are continuing to fight alongside him as a propaganda army. The problem for the Media is that people are realizing that the Media is no longer objective fact-givers. I wonder how long it will be before Obama says we need to bailout the NYT and other Media outlets favorable to him. For all of the Left’s supposed belief in evolution, they sure don’t seem to understand it.

Darwinism is a bitch, but its a bitch I love to see in action.

Tolerance thy name is not Liberal

Posted in Culture, Politics with tags , , , , on December 17, 2008 by thedoyle

I always love to hear about how tolerant Liberals are, usually it is a Liberal claiming it and they are usually in front of a camera. However when the public eye is not on them the truth is much different and in the case of some…cough…cough…Keith Olbermann…cough they flaunt their intolerance.

I have seen “liberal tolerance” first hand at NYU so I know of what I speak. Well apparently it isn’t just big schools that have problems, at the Rhode Island College School of Social Work one student is suing for being persecuted for his conservative views.

Such things do not surprise me anymore.

I thought Obama was going to create a post-racial nation.

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2008 by thedoyle

Obama was supposed to heal the planet, fix the oceans and create a post racial world. Still waiting on all three it seems. This article chides Lindsay Lohan for using a “derogatory term” for Obama. What is the term you ask? Was it the “N-Word”? Nope. Did she sing a song from the musical Hair? Nope. The headline says it all. “Lindsay Lohan Calls Obama First ‘Colored President’ in Interview”

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,450347,00.html

Now, its time for a little common sense. According to the politically correct in this country there is only one proper way to refer to to people whose melanin count is much higher than everyone elses…African American. I’m sure Ms. Lohan will be receiving a stern letter from African American watchdog group the NAACP which as we all know stands for the National Association for the Advancement of African Americans…wait no that would be the NAAAA. What does the CP stand for then? Oh I just looked it up it stands for Colored People.

How can they be so insensitive? Well it seems this country has a long history of trying to figure out what to call those high melanin people. The “N-word” is offensive. There is no doubt about that. And the word that inspired the “N-Word”, Negro which is Spanish for black, was used by those who felt disgusted by the “N-Word”. If you look back at speeches by people like Lincoln, you know him he’s one Republican Liberals haven’t figured out how to hate…yet, he uses the word Negro all the time. At the time it was considered the proper term to use.

However, in 1909 an organization came into being, the NAAAA, no sorry the NAACP, and for 70 years the term colored people was considered the polite term. Then in the 1980’s African American was the term we were told to use by Jesse Jackson, the guy who wants Obama’s balls. The suddenly it was no longer ok to use the term colored people…except in titles of 70 year old organizations. But what to do? “I know”, they said, “its not colored people its people of color”. Yeah that will get rid of racism.

So we got such interesting stories of how the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People complained that a Sheriff said “colored officers” instead of “officers of color”. Now we have a whole country that is so worried about offending the NAAAA…err NAACP that people of color allllll over the world are now African American. People of color in Canada are Canadian African Americans. Alright, maybe that’s ok since its one the same Continent. However, during the riots in France a year ago, I saw news reports of “French African Americans.” That must have been a surprise to the French.

Well, as you can see it is a real mess and poor Ms. Lohan looks as tho she will be the next one to feel the wrath of the NAAAA, no the NAAPC, no the NAACP. But it’s not as if we expect Ms. Lohan to be all that bright to know of the history. Plus this goes to the heart of the matter, shouldn’t the issue be not the word used bu the intent behind it? Ms. Lohan was happy that Obama was elected. She chose the term thinking it was the right thing to say. The sheriff in the story I had read about had been praising his “officers of color” as the best he had worked with. NO say the dergatory term police. So we must sit back and wait until the term that is ok this decade changes again. Who knows what it will be but we do know Obama will lead us away from derogatory terms all together. OH? Really?

The Boston Globe online reports and James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal pointed out that Obama has recently used a term that some consider offensive.

Obama’s ‘mutt’ jesting draws pointed criticism

Of the two awkward attempts at humor during President-elect Barack Obama’s first press conference, his reference to not talking to dead presidents is the one that has received most of the attention.

 

“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances,” Obama said Friday. Within hours, he called the former first lady to apologize for what his spokeswoman called a “careless and off-handed remark.”

But comments have appeared in the blogosphere on the other joke. Talking about choosing a puppy for his daughters, he said “our preference would be to get a shelter dog, but, obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me.”

During the campaign, Obama celebrated his biracial heritage as the son of a white mother from Kansas and an African father from Kenya – and many biracial Americans celebrated with him.

But now on message boards and blogs, some are saying they were offended.

One of the most thought-out is from a woman who runs a blog for mothers of Korean-American children. “I’ve heard mixed-race people use that term to describe themselves before, usually in the same ha-ha way Obama did. I’ve also heard it thrown around as an insult, a pejorative, a slur. I’ve felt the slap of that word across my face” she wrote. “My fear, however, is that Obama, as the first mixed-race president, will shape the way most Americans view people of mixed race for at least a generation. And will Obama calling himself a ‘mutt’ – with humor, as if the word is nothing, nothing at all – make it socially acceptable for people to start calling me a mutt? My kids?”

Taranto noted, “So what is the politically correct term? Mongrel-American?”

Only for now.
