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.

It was a lazy Sunday

The Giants won, I had a few beers and ate bad food. So here is some links from other people who took the time to do real work.

Powerline’s John Hinderaker talks about the New York Time’s lack of journalistic ability.

Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard points out a flaw in Obama’s “thinking”

The evil Canadian Mark Steyn ask an important question of Obama

Rich Lowry teaches you how to give a speech like Obama

Thomas Sowell calls Obama Charlatan-in-Chief, Liberals will be calling this black man a racist somehow at some point for opposing Obama.

Enjoy the Veal.

The Media does it again.

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.

Liberal Selective Hearing

Posted in Culture, Economy, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2009 by thedoyle

Liberals, I have found, don’t believe in many things.

They don’t believe in terrorists http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1531304-1,00.html http://michellemalkin.com/2006/01/19/todays-helen-thomas-moment/

They don’t believe in the 2nd Amendment http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/26/AR2008062601755.html  http://www.slate.com/id/2193813/entry/2194311/ http://www.dcwatch.com/issues/gun080626e.htm

And apparently they don’t believe in hearing what people actually say to them.

For instance, look at the illegal immigration. If you tell a liberal that you are against illegal immigration, they will ask why you don’t like immigrants. They don’t hear the first word…(“ILLEGAL”) <—-Alice’s Restaurant Reference, who got it? They wonder why you are racist to dislike immigrants, they preach at you that this is a nation of immigrants. They are unable to process the idea that someone could like immigration and yet dislike illegal immigration.

So maybe it isn’t a hearing issue, maybe its how their brains process what they hear. Could liberals be brain damaged? We’ll leave that one alone for now.

So let’s talk about a recent bruhaha over Rush’s statements. I don’t listen to Rush because I don’t listen to any talk radio, if I did I would probably listen to him but its a moot point. That being said I am neutral towards Rush, but the reaction to his statements make clear Liberals selective hearing. Rush has clearly said Obama’s policies will damage the country and that he wants the policies to fail so that country does not. He was explicit about that but I watched the news after he said them and they completely ignored that and said Rush wants the country to fail. Some even edited his words to leave out where Rush explained the difference in wanting Obama to fail because Obama failing would be good for the country to make it seem as tho Rush wanted the country to fail.

This is typical of Liberals. Dishonest, disingenuous, deceptive. Maybe it is a brain condition after all.

Cowards? Moi? I think not Liberals.

Eric Holder, our new Attorney General, whom I have talked about before has claimed this country is a “nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090218/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/holder_race

I will now and forever say that Holder can go fuck himself. Is that a brave enough statement for you?

This liberal nitwit continues saying, “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.” Well let’s talk about talking about race. Liberals are the ones who care most about race, it matters the most to them. They claim to be the least racist but that is just untrue. MLK said he looked forward to the day when a person was not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Liberals have NEVER lived up to that. Just look at our new President. Obama would never have been elected if he had been judged on his character.

Liberals are the MOST racist people I have ever met. It concerns them all the time as they are never able to see past skin color. That is the reason there aren’t more conversations about race. Why would I want to talk to a Liberal about race? I know they are racist, I know they are so small minded to not be able to see past that and it informs everything they say and do. And the worst part about it all is the hypocritical disingenuous way they go about acting as if they are above it all.

Let’s look at this new bullshit that Liberals have spewn upion us about Race. The NY Post had a political cartoon that has race huckster Al Sharpton and the liberal nitwits at the Huffington Post up in arms.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090218/ap_on_re_us/ny_post_cartoon

The AP article doesn’t even SHOW the cartoon, so how can anyone who reads the article make up their own mind? HINT: You aren’t supposed to make up your own mind, let the liberals make it for you.

Fortunately the guys at Powerline do have the whole story and the pic.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/02/022869.php

John Hinderaker also makes some very good points that need to be repeated. Obama didn’t write the stimulus, Pelosi did, so how could the chimp be Obama? Also after 8 years of comparing Bush to a chimp, why are the lovely little BJ and the Bear co-stars off limits for political commentary?

This goes back to my hypocrite statement I made about liberals before and I have talked about in other posts.

Liberals suck. Hows that for honest, Mr. Holder? You are the most racist turd-bags around. Hows that for honest, Mr. Holder? I am sick and tired of hearing about race because to me it isn’t an issue. I don’t care what color you are. I treat everyone the same when I first meet them. If I start to not like someone it has nothing to do with skin color, it has everything to do with the content of their character. People like Holder and Sharpton and Obama have the kind of character I despise, if they were white it would not make them any better, but for some reason since they are black the media and the rest of the liberals overlook their character and judge them by their skin color.

MLK was killed by a white man and his dream was killed by Liberals. Which is worse?

 

Some others who have been talking about this:

Obama wants to run the free world? He can’t even pick a good cabinet.

Posted in Culture, Economy, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2009 by thedoyle

Soo hear the one about the Obama pick with some tax issues? Which one you ask? Well let’s start with the one who just withdrew.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/daschle_taxes

Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination on Tuesday to be President Barack Obama‘s Health and Human Services secretary, faced with problems over back taxes and potential conflicts of interest.”

Those last 5 words are very telling. Both men are just out for themselves so of course there will be a conflict of interest, but at the same time thieves work together all the time so what caused this particular split?

I am gonna skip the rest of the tax…”forgetters”? Isn’t that the official story for all of them? I want to talk about Eric Holder and more to the point how the media deals with anything from “The One”.

Whenever “The One” does anything the Media acts like a new mother whose baby has just filled his diaper. The mother coos and says, “Did you make a present for daddy?” I feel like the father who has the sense to say “That’s not a present…its shit.”

On that note lets talk about Holder and the Media’s reaction.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090203/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/holder_confirmation

“The lanky, 58-year-old former prosecutor, federal judge and No. 2 official during the Clinton administration promised the start of a new era at the Justice Department, which was wracked by Bush administration scandals over politically motivated hirings and firings. Holder has pledged to restore its reputation.”

Let me pause while I laugh now and that gives you time to check out the excellent work Paul Mirengoff did way back in November.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2008/11/022113.php

Now that you’ve read what Paul said about Holder’s work helping Bill Clinton pardon the FALN terrorists in order to help out Hillary’s election chances, doesn’t this sentence from the AP article make you pause; “Holder also will play a major role in the future of terrorism detainees.”? He can’t even seem to hold on to the ones we had before, and they want to give him more? But the AP article never mentions that, instead we get more shit like this:

“Attorney General Eric Holder, on his first day on the job, signaled a clean break with past policies of the Bush administration and promised to hold Wall Street accountable if any major financial institutions engaged in fraud that contributed to the global financial crisis.”

Again, its shit folks. But the media is telling you its a gift. Look he’s “signaling” for a “clean break.” Its BS and it reminds me of someone else who seemed pleased with a clean break from the past:

Governor Tarkin: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.

Also let’s look at the second part of that sentence “promised to hold Wall Street accountable if any major financial institutions engaged in fraud that contributed to the global financial crisis.”

Two things leap out at me, first how the whole sentence with that ending makes it seem as if Bush let Wall Street do what ever it wanted.  Which isn’t true. Enron was happily cheating people during the Clinton years, it finally got busted and punished under Bush. I dont claim Bush busted them, they screwed up on their own but he didn’t just let it slide. Also for years Bush was trying to add more regulation to Wall Street and that legiislation was stopped by the Dems. So overall the first idea the AP tries to sell turns out to be shit, but lets look just at cleaning up Wall street and llok at holders past and OBAMA”S FUTURE.

Holder worked to get Marc Rich pardoned under Clinton. So here’s a guy who has done worse things then the guys at Enron and Holder helps get him out of Jail.

What does that mean for Obama’s future? I think it means that “The One” has picked himself a good crony who will do whatever Obama wants and who has shown Obama that he has no qualms about throwing ethics out the window for the right guy i.e. a Dem President.

What has the Media done? They took someone who’s past is very visiably tarnished by obvious partisan and political HACK moves, threw in some wealth envy and class warfare, some Bush Hatred and tried to wrap it up with a bow and tell you its a present, a gift to you.

Its Shit.
