Why Is Main Stream Media So Liberal?

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that the main stream media is very liberal and thus highly supportive of the liberal Democratic Party.  But have you ever wondered why?

If you followed the national conventions of both the Republican and Democratic Parties, it was obviously clear the main stream media reported more favorably for the DNC over the RNC.  I noticed that the one major network I watched during the RNC had a reporter there who is so pro-Democrat that it surprised me that she was covering the RNC.  But then I found myself asking who among their reporters aren’t pro-Democrat.

You could tell that she struggled to say anything positive about the various speeches given and when it was all done and said her lackluster reporting did little to enhance the Republican platform.  During the DNC, this same reporter couldn’t lavish enough praise on the various speakers that took the platform.  According to her, they were the greatest speeches she had ever heard and they were sure to win over every voter in the nation.

So have you ever wondered why the main stream media is so supportive of the liberals?

It’s because efforts were made over 100 years ago by the liberal progressives to gain control of media outlets, which at this time was mostly newspapers.  Once television became popular and the liberals saw how much the American people could be influenced by it, they began a concerted effort to gain control of the main networks.  By controlling them, they could control the news and thus sway a gullible public to hear and see what they wanted them to see.

The conservatives just sat back in their complacency and allowed the liberals to take over the media.  The liberals had an agenda and the conservatives had their warm comfy steady as she goes attitude.  The conservatives tried their best to report the news accurately, which was often dull and mundane.  The liberals concentrated on reporting the sensational and controversial and when they couldn’t find anything like that to report, they took the dull and mundane truth, twisted it around and contorted the truth to make it more appealing.  The result was the more people tuned in to the sensational and controversial and tuned out the more conservative and accurate reporting.

The result is a nation full of people that have been completely brainwashed by the liberal media lies that they can no longer discern the truth for themselves.  They blindly follow the missives of the media without question and without checking for accuracy and truth.  Consequently, when we have a president that has done nothing but ruin the American economy, job market and national security, he still leads in the polls.  The American people have been so dumbed and numbed but the liberal media that they just might re-elect the worst president in the history of the United States and believe they are doing the right thing.

    To say the media simply are "liberal" is to say the Pope is simply another Catholic. The media, along with the left-wing dems, are socialists, at best. Marxists, at worst.

    • docfjs

      Exactly what I was going to point out.

    • TLady62

      Yep...just like asking why a duck has feathers.

  • CARLjr

    What about FoxNews and talk radio? There are plenty of conservative voices in the news media. The problem isn't that it's only one-sided, it's that there is no NEUTRAL voice at all. Journalism as a whole has changed in this way.
    When I want the news, I want to just find out what happened.
    I do not want to hear:
    - what could have happened
    - what may happen in the future
    - what anyone thinks about what happened
    - Stories that protect or promote US Corporate interests
    - Blindly reading press releases from PR firms
    - Blindly reading studies, polls, and even hoaxes with no investigation
    - Celebrity and show business advertisements
    - Giving more weight to stories that have a "sex" or "drug" element to them
    - and of course - what this blog is all about - sensationalizing. Playing on emotions and focusing on controversy. Minor stories are over hyped. Trivial information is misrepresented or exaggerated as important or significant. Intentionally omitting facts and reporting on insignificant or irrelevant details. Ignoring pertinent background or contextual information. Inciting fear and panic and creating anxiety and paranoia. Worst of all - spreading false information such as malicious rumors and fabricated intelligence.

    There is no place to just simply find out "what happened today".

    • TxGCB

      At least it is not state controlled radio/TV. The conservatives scold their own and that rarely/never happens on the main stream outlets.

    • joe6pack

      I know having a small portion of the media support conservative ideals just chaps the ass of you dumbass communists. Get over it comrade and go watch Chris Matthews with your pants around your ankles like you do every night.

      • CARLjr

  • mikct

    Good points but possibly even more scary is that the Marxist/socialist strategy for control of the people (you know the lemmings) is to: 1. Control education, 2. Control the media and 3. Take advantage of catastrophes. Sound familiar. To paraphrase an old adage: "those who can, do; those who can't, teach; those who can't teach, report". BTW,"the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good [people] to do nothing".

  • Screeminmeeme

    Again, I site Orwells '1984' as an example of the direction that we are heading. The same methods used to control the masses in the fictional Oceania, are being implemented used by our government thru the media.

    This is Marxism at work.
    No more.
    No less.

    This article is certainly an over-simplification of the issue. Where are all of todays so called reporters getting their educations? Their getting their degrees, if not an education, at journalism schools within the university system which are nearly all controlled and taught by liberal progressives. That is the underlying issue. These people don't know how else to think and are not really proficient at critical thinking, especially if it leads one to conclusions that are not consistent with progressive group-think. I mean, after all, who would want to be immediately ostrazied and mocked for straying of the liberal, progressive, Dem plantation?!

    • feotu

      Twenty five years ago I was an idealistic college student enrolled in one of the top journalism schools in the country. I really wanted to be a journalist, report news, interview interesting people and bring important stories to the public. I was not prepared, even then, for the liberal bias that would drive me away from the field altogether. The professors were blatantly political and biased, my editor was a bully and my classmates called me naive. I tried to hang on in spite of it all but realized I would always be fighting an uphill battle. Instead, I went into marketing, made a few bucks and now own a corporate training company which also publishes books and materials to help kids understand The Constitution, capitalism and government. So, thanks liberal media for inspiring me to educate a generation of kids who appreciate America's history and values.

      • Screeminmeeme

        feotu...Thanks for your concern for the coming generations. Liberals don't give a rip but our future depends on people understanding our form of government.

        Here on GP I've posted the Code of Ethics for Journalists. After reading the Code, there is barely a handful of journalists who conform to the rules.

      • wolmoon7

        Feotu....great story and thank you for educating our young about the virtues of our splendid Constitution.
        I also am in marketing and have transitioned into motivational speaking to business groups and the college club lecture circuit on the virtues of following our Constitution, free market initiatives, and the value of economy building capitalism and its positive long-term effects.
        Give me a holler if you want an outside speaker for any of your classes. Would love to help out any way you see fit.
        God Bless ya.

    THIS should be reported by the media but it won't happen so PLEASE PASS IT ON.

    Israeli Science: Obama Birth Certificate Is A Fake.

    Former science adviser to Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D. created the website Israel Science and Technology, which is a national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel. Recently, they have produced a report that is both scientific and technological in regards Barack Obama’s birth certificate that has been uploaded to WhiteHouse.gov.

    Mr. Hanukoglu is not just some reporter or some “birther” as many have been identified as. Instead he is AN WARD-WINNING RESEARCHER, A PROFESSOR OF BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY in the Department of Molecular Biology at Ariel University Center of Samaria in Ariel, Israel.

    The website reports,

    Since this is a site of Science and technology, there is a need to explain why this site dedicates a page to expose forgery about a document related to Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. Obama is the President of the USA that is currently the leader of the Free World, and the most powerful country in the Western hemisphere. In his position as the President, the policies pursued by Mr. Obama affects the whole world and not just the USA.

    Because of the persisting controversy about his eligibility, On April 27, 2011 the Office of the President at the White House released a document that is called “Long-Form Birth Certificate”. The release of this simple document, after two years of controversy, raised in our minds the possibility that there could be something suspicious about the information available on this document. To check this, we downloaded the document that was posted at the White House site at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf.

    The analyses presented below reveal without a doubt that the Long-Form Birth Certificate of Mr. Obama is a fabricated, fake and forged document.

    The publication of such a BLATANTLY FAKE DOCUMENT about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, SHOULD RAISE GREAT CONCERN ABOUT THE SUITABILITY OF THE PERSON WHO IS HOLDING THE REIGNS ON THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY OF THE WORLD.

    Moreover, the LACK OF ACTION on the part of the MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATE, as well as the COURTS of the United States, despite many previous appeals to these three branches of American government, also raise a concern about how the governmental institutions of the reputedly best, and certainly the most important democracy in the Free World have AVOIDED THIS ISSUE.

    The website conducted an independent analysis and also cites others who came to the same conclusions that they did: THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS A FAKE.

    They even invite those interested to use the Foxit Reader version 4.3.1 software to examine the PDF file that the White House posted and they provide the information so that any person on the planet could examine for themselves the claims of those who have already looked into the matter. According to Jerome Corsi, “the Israel Science and Technology website examined the PDF file posted by the White House April 27, 2011, and found that the last digit of the birth certificate’s number, 61 10841, disappears under 800-percent magnification.”

    “Many …examples can be discovered by examining magnified document with full page view of the document,” the website says. “In brief, this simple analysis using just a viewing software REVEALS THAT THE PDF DOCUMENT HAS BEEN ALTERED by a graphics software.”

    THE PROBLEM IS NOT THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE that the document is a fake. The problem is that ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE DON'T CARE whether America has a SLEEPER IN THE WHITE HOUSE or not. The question we should ask ourselves is “WHY DON'T THEY CARE?”

    • CARLjr

      The problem is not that there is no evidence the document is fake, the problem is that evidence is not credible and has been debunked. In Court. Over and over.

      What you do not understand is these digital files that have been released to the public and posted online have companion HARD COPIES that have been verified as authentic. The artifacts inherent in the digital files are due to the processes of scanning and preparing the documents for the internet.

      • Screeminmeeme

        CARLjr....I am not a document expert. Nor a whiz at digital technology. However..the people who examined the document are and I believe them.

        The Israelis have no ax to grind. I would take their word over Obama and his boys any day.

        Obama is a fraud and the rest of the world knows it and thinks we are a bunch of total idiots that we have allowed him to President.

        • CARLjr

          You act as though your expert is an impartial agent of Israel. He is not. He is no doubt paid by the tabloid WND who has a financial interest in keeping this conspiracy alive.

          If by "Obama and his boys" you mean the State of Hawaii, the Arizona Secretary of State, 150 court cases, and a bunch of reporters that actually have seen the paper versions- I think I would believe them before some unknown foreign webmaster. I don't know if you went to the website you mentioned, but it is just a bunch of links and phone numbers - apart from a few articles filed under "Arab-Israeli conflict". Which is neither a science nor a technology topic. You have fallen for a hoax - perpetrated by WND. Obviously it was designed to be confused for the US-Israel Science & Technology Foundation - usistf.org - which is a legitimate organization.

          It is true people think of birthers as a bunch of total idiots. It's because you will not validate any information - you quote anything that fits your theory as accurate and completely dismiss anything that contradicts your theory. You do the same with other topics I have noticed.

        • hpw3506

          Folks, don't waste your time trying to have a logical discussion with people such as CARLjr.
          These types can't process true information.
          I have worked with digital imaging software and know how to alter them.

        • joe6pack

          Carl should wiggle his ears to find out where his head is planted. ;)

        • CARLjr

          The rest of the country and every courtroom this case has gone to agrees with me. If you take any security paper document like this birth certificate and scan it with a standard scanner and use standard software to do it you will get similar results. It is the software dealing with the text and the background as one thing instead of separating out the layers. It is actually pretty basic stuff. But none of this matters because there are hard copies of these documents that were verified years ago. The digital manipulation argument is not even relevant. The paper copies have been verified.

          Besides, if you really want to go down this road, let's take a look at Mitt Romney. First, his father - who was born in Mexico, needed to file paperwork with the American consulate and pledge an oath to keep his American citizenship. Has this been verified? Is George Romney truly an American citizen? I'd like to see the form he filed and some proof he took that oath. Plus, it came out that Mitt himself lied to the state election commission about his residency when he was running to become Governor of Massachusetts. He was living in Salt Lake City at the time and should have been ineligible. He lied under oath to either the election commission or on his securities and exchange commission forms. Either way - a felony. Lets see him release those forms as well.

          I think it would be hilarious if you birthers got Romney disqualified instead of Obama.

        • joe6pack

          You sure seem worried about something you say is no big deal. Don't you have some blacks to keep under your thumb somewhere?

        • CARLjr

          Worried? You realize the scorecard is 150-0 against the birthers, right? Year after year, lawsuit after lawsuit, expert after expert, and millions of dollars spent - they haven't been able to prove anything.

          It's like those who insist the Loch Ness Monster exists and will spend their lifetime and entire fortune attempting to "prove" it. Go ahead - spend your time and money - we will treat you with the same amount of respect the Nessie hunters get.

Now there are many more that are disguised as entertainment stations.

      Speaking of billionaires that purchase politicians, did you know that Romney's owner Sheldon Adelson stands to get a $2 billion dollar tax cut if Romney gets elected? No wonder he is willing to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to his campaign.

      • joe6pack

        So you have no problem with Soros?

        • overthetop

          I do. I have a problem with the crooked campaign finance system. I find it galling that when the public complained about the inherent corruption in the system, they responded by allowing unlimited anonymous donations. Complete B S

          Soros and Adelson are exactly the same.
          Obama and Romney are exactly the same.
          Republicans and Democrats are exactly the same.

          All corrupt, all are paid for by sponsors, none of them care a bit about who they are supposed to be representing. Why did none of the bankers that ruined our economy face charges? Because they own the politicians. They got free tax money instead. (TARP)

        • joe6pack

          I can't disagree with any of that. :D

        • theoldguy44

          Obama was the first Presidential candidate to eschew the public financing system, because he knew that Soros and his minions would get him elected for the fundamental transformation of America which has continued since January of 2009. We can't possibly afford four more years of Obama and his Socialist czars.

      • Backgammon

        You do know mr Liberal that Obama outspent McCain 10 to 1. It is not if Romney is elected, he will be elected. Romney/Ryan will mop the floor with Obama's failed policies and his pandering. Obama didn't help the blacks, or the Jews, so he just didn't pander enough.

        • overthetop

          I bet he helped his financial backers. I bet he will help them again.
          If Romney is elected, he will help HIS financial backers. That is the way it works. It is out in the open, plain as day. Super-PAC

        • timpclimber

          I checked with a number of liberal and conservative friends in Boston about how Romney dealt with his political backers when he became governor. Their common answer was: "He showed little favortism but concentrated on solving problems." He did not reward or pay off his backers as our current commander-in-thief.

        • overthetop

          Were any of them bankers or millionaires?
          So far Romneys campaign promises have focused on them.

        • timpclimber

          Several were vice presidents of corporations, one was a union boss, another the assistant head of staffing for the state. You heard his boss, a liberal Democrat, speak at the RNC and he agreed with her assessment of how fair Romney was. I worked in downtown SLC before, during and after the 2002 Olympics and heard from numerous Olympic staff workers how he changed the corrupt non-problem solving environment to an honest, problem solving, positive environment. Is he perfect? No but he is head and shoulders above the socialist, rarely tell the truth, Edward Said and other leftist trained excuse we have for a President now.

        • Steve Berendsen

          If this is true, why did Romney lose the state of Massachusetts? And every other swing state for that matter! You conservatards are a funny bunch, I'll give you credit though, you never let something as silly as facts get in your way!

  • Earl P. Holt III

    TWO REASONS:

    #1 The news media sees itself as the Fourth Branch of Government: As such, the larger government grows, the greater its influence, power and prestige;

    #2 The left is attracted to the news media for precisely the reasons stated above, (power, prestige and influence,) but they know they can never run for office as the socialists and communists they are. Hence, a position where they can determine what is reported as "news," and how it is reported, is a reasonable -- but second-best -- alternative in their mad quest to influence public policy...

  • GPD12292

    From the time of the Communist take over of the USSR, they have always talked about their plans to take control of our media, here in the US, to press the Communist agenda.....Well I say they've done a pretty good job of controlling most of our media. It really plays together well with Obama's agenda, because the agendas are pretty much the same. The Communists have been hard at work in this country gaining control bit by bit. Just watch the movie 2016 and Dreams of My Real Father and you'll see how everything is falling into place to destroy this country from within.

    Current Communist Goals

    CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

      as pointed out by some Fox commentators, they sample more demos than the other groups. They go by the 2008 returns, the last time this Hoax in Chief got elected.

    • MatthewMurawski

      Not to mention they take the percentage of woman, Latino, black, etc vote and make it higher or lower to adjust to Obama's advantage areas. It is not a true poll, the only poll that counts for anything is the one taken on November 6th.

    • Steve Berendsen

      Lol, how did that work out for you? Obama and "the liberal media" were right on...it's funny how you all claim "the liberal media" "makes things up" and "twists the truth", when in fact you were being deceived by your own party and the ultra conservative Fox News...the media is liberal, because the people running most media outlets are educated, and therefore tend to vote Democratic, sans Fox which is almost comical in their interpretation of what they call "facts" I watched Fox as the election results came in, it was hilarious to watch those fucktards squirming in their seats, all while making up excuses.

    What better reason to support Romney and Ryan as the only choice, the media hates them, funny how the media can take two or three words out of a statement and make a big case out of it, if they approve the message, but when they are behind, instead of telling us of their good work and plans to improve, they be-little the other guy and blame Bush or someone else, for their failures. there are only two answers either bs-bho was to inexperenced to do a good job, or he has committed, by overt acts against the states he owes his agegence, and the treachery there in, has committed treason. Well the liberal media isn't going to tell the truth, not all in one lump anyway, shock would,tv's would, oh,, you know the storties by now, no one has submitted a plan with any, just common sence ideas, much less the big brain stormer of all bull crapdoom bs-bho. The team of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. have a 5 step plan to strenghten America while bs-bho and j b have no plan to improve America.........Romney and Ryan are for America they are for American Values which inclide "one nation under God" strength , wisdom and guidence in leadership that uses our resorses a work force as strong as ever and people that plan to be the best, Vote for Romney and Ryan.GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Liberals have no shame and take no blame.

    The post convention bounce that led to jubilation in the mainstream media has exhausted itself and Romney is coming back strongly. Having shown Obama as much as four points ahead of Romney in the immediate aftermath of the Conventions, Rasmussen now has the president down to a one point margin: Obama: 46 Romney: 45.

    Instead, the fundamental flaws of the Democratic strategy are emerging: By tying the race to unrealistic expectations of economic recovery, Obama has mortgaged his re-election campaign to the dismal monthly and weekly economic data that assaults us constantly.

    And the days after his convention recessed have not been good for President Obama. Instead of strong executive leadership, we are seeing a world and a country in chaos while the president campaigns.

    • Libya, which we liberated at a cost of over one billion dollars and at the risk of our military men and women, now fails to protect our embassy against Islamist extremists. Our ambassador is assassinated in a terrorist attack.

    • Egypt, the recipient of $1.3 billion of U.S. aid permits a mob to storm our embassy in Cairo and burn our flag. Our embassy issues a statement calling an independent film privately produced in the United States "an abuse of the First Amendment" rather than making clear that free speech in America is nobody's business but our own.

    • The president, continuing to bet on improving our image in the Muslim world, refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu during his forthcoming visit to the United States.

    • Meanwhile, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who masqueraded as a friend of Israel when she served in the Senate from New York, declares that there are no "red lines" constraining Iranian nuclear ambitions. They can, essentially, do whatever they want without triggering an American military response. And, despite Egyptian re-militarization of the Sinai and its increasing repudiation of the Camp David Accords, she approves additional aid and credits for Cairo.

    • The Federal Reserve Board warns of an impending economic catastrophe as Bob Woodward's new book excoriates the Administration for failing to conclude -- or even seriously to pursue -- a long term debt and deficit reduction agreement.

    • In Chicago, Obama's political base, the schools are closed and the teachers -- among the most highly paid in America -- are on strike to protest the Mayor's outrageous demand that their pay be based on their performance.

    And through it all, there is no presidential leadership. He's too busy raising money to run ads so he can tell us what a great leader he is.

    Everywhere we see, in ruins, Obama's plans for our country. His foreign policy has encouraged revolutions that have brought our worst enemies to power in the Middle East while his environmental policies have tried -- fortunately without success -- to limit our domestic production of energy. His education reforms have no teeth and he sits by passively as they are challenged by his own local teachers union.

    Credit much of the quick end to his bounce to Romney's ads which, right off the bat after the Democratic Convention closed, rapped Obama for trying to convince us that we are better off than we were four years ago. Obama's campaign essentially poses the question: What will you believe -- your own eyes or my speeches?

    And the polls show that the spellbinding power of his teleprompter-eloquence has a shorter and shorter half life.

      It was not Obama's policies that encouraged the attacks in Libya and Egypt. It was radical Christian propaganda created by a southern preacher who has once again gotten innocent people killed because of his hateful stunts.

      • cal40gal

        No, this was a planned uprising targeted for 9/11, and there was a very convenient piece of video to use as the goat. One radical Christian cannot spark what these radicals in Libya did. Carljr, you are just condemning a position that you do not espouse. It is not cause one.

    It REALLY is quite simple:
    Liberals CREATE (and depend on) people being FOREVER DEPENDENT UPON Government (to stay in power).
    The MEDIA, also wanting to remain IN POWER (sole arbitors of what IS and IS NOT "NEWS") - pushes the Liberal Narrative, so THEY continue keep the Power Hungry IN POWER (thus sustaining THEIR power).
    Period!

  • Taylor Wallis

    I really do hate false reporting. It annoys me to know end. I feel so sorry for celebrities. Everyone is always in their business whether what the media say is true or not.

    • cal40gal

      Oh, those poor wealthy celebrities! How sad they are, taking our money and mongering ugly polit-speak to the left. Yech.

      • Taylor Wallis

        It is we who go out and see their movies and such. And so what how wealthy they are. Some of them use there money for great causes and go on missions trips to help people in need. And there are Conservative celebrates. They are everyday people and the media and the people watching it love to stick their noses into their lives.

  • rchguns

    Stop and think a minute where all of these reporters went to school and received their indoctrination. In the 60s all the worthless cowards who did everything they could to evade the draft if they had the money they went to school and studied liberal arts. This is a totally worthless line of study but it kept him out of the draft. They were so left wing that was impossible for them to believe any other way than the socialist doctrine. The senior media people are the product of our schools directly and the younger media people are products of the social mess fits that stayed on in school and became worthless instructors. Churning out idiotic students who can no longer think for themselves and don't even bother to try.

    That's why the major media today is a bunch of worthless idiots who can't help themselves is always know. If they had to think for themselves that probably die right on the spot.

      If I could give you 100 thumbs up, I would. Bravo.

    Ideas rule the world. Shared beliefs give greater unity of action than centralized command and control ever can.

    For a movement conservative to get a media job is an uphill battle and can only be achieved it you have connections within the organization. But the real fun begins once you get the job.

    You are reviewed and criticized in a much more critical way than any of the liberal reporters, until your career collapses under the criticism. Forced out of the media job, you have to take a job as, say a greeter at Wal Marts, to survive. Thus you are ruled out for future media jobs for lack of experience.

    There is no conspiracy against you. Many of the libs may show surface friendship towards you. But you are soon forced out as your colleagues who share the same world view chew up your work.

    • cal40gal

      Pretty sicko, isn't it?

  • Guest

    Some of these comments are truly frightening! For those that so freely make them, try to remember that in a Muslim countury, your head would roll! For the obvious anti -Americans,there are planes that leave daily to get YOU to Mecca! Don't delay! TAKE ONE!

    • cal40gal

      The truly frightening thing is not the comments! It is the behavior of the extremists that is frightening; just what they want in our hearts and minds. We forgot about World Trade bombing #1, and were lulled into feeling secure, protected, inviolate. Whoops! And now, here comes 9/11 and we are lulled into the same mindset. People! we are under seige by a faction that wants to dominate and claim the world as theirs.

    Another possibility might be as rebellion against what they see as the right's attempts to control the broadcast airwaves versus their desire for profits to fatten the bottom line.

    • cal40gal

      Not understanding this statement. Elaborate? Since when has the right controlled the airwaves for Pete's sake?

  • theoldguy44

    Dinesh DeSouza said he went to four continents researching Obama's past. In every place he went, people told him that he was the first person that ever asked about Obama's background. When Sarah Palin was named John McCain's running mate, more than 100 journalist's headed for Wassila, Alaska to try to dig up anything negative that they could find. No double standards here, investigative journalism died in 2008, and it will never return. It's a sad commentary on the state of public discourse in this country. Our Ambassador in Libya is shot, killed and dragged through the streets, and the media is firing gotcha questions at Mitt Romney, because he commented that the press release from the Embassy, was spouting condemnations of a video that no
    one knew about or saw, as a flash point. Obama spoke from the Rose Garden, the press asked him questions and he hustled off to Las Vegas, can't keep Jay-Z and his friends , with their checkbooks waiting. Maybe if he attended more than 40% of his daily briefings on security, he'd realize that it was the eleventh anniversary of September 11. the only thing Obama cares about is his reelection and any chance to disparage, Mitt Romney, who would be a far superior POTUS, no doubt.

    • cal40gal

      @theoldguy44:
      You are so right! They skewered Palin every which way to Sunday, and that ended objective journalism. We all know, if Bush had scurried away from a Libya implosion to go fundraise - he would have been crucified - I've said that before. But Obama gets a free pass. Yes, his re-election, to cement the socialist movement in this country, is all that matters. And, the sad thing is that I know only TWO PEOPLE who have changed their minds about Obama since the 2008 election. Please, America, WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! This is the last stand for conservative values. Family, faith, freedom. Get ready.

    The main stream "News" Media is owned by many in the membership of the CFR and the Bilderbergers, two major groups involved in the subversion of this country....the very people who pull the politician's strings.

  • Dean

    They are probably getting paid off by George Soros

  • John W. from Grand Rapids, MI

    All of this is similar to the George Orwell novel "1984" and the movie "1984" which was based on the novel. In both the novel and the movie, there were telescreens everywhere, including Winston Smith's apartment. They were on 24/7 and spewed constant propaganda from Ingsoc, the totalitarian government in Oceania. Also in the movie John Hurt played Winston Smith and Richard Burton played O'Neil

  • Real American Born Patriot

    S-T-U-P-I-D. These idiots are really numb! Just think if Barack baby appoints another SoDoDoBird, or Pagan??? We're in trouble now with wacko liberals on the bench, we'll be all done, with Soros dancing the polka then.

    This wouldn't be an issue if the media weren't also dishonest, corrupt, and manipulative. It really shouldn't matter if they're liberal or conservative as long as they can do their jobs appropriately. The media, in general, has proven itself incapable and unwilling to do their job appropriately.

  • noelle2011

    BECAUSE THEY ARE OWNED BY THE NASTY EVIL ELITES THAT WANT TO CONTROL US! AND OF COURSE THE STORIES! TO HELL WITH THE LYING MAINSTREAM MEDIA LIKE CBS NBC ABC MSNBC FOX NEWS WASH POST NY TIMES ETC!

    I figured they were all getting paid with government grants or something. Or were so low paid as writers that they were on welfare and thus supported the DNC party of welfare. I can not believe that there is no journalistic integrity left anywhere. Except maybe the success of Fox News.

  • Jon

    Very true and very sad. Hopefully there are enough educated people left who think for themselves that will make the right choice come election time. If BO gets a second term we are done for.

  • paulaveronica

    I've often wondered if these young reporters were not brainwashed by their liberal college professors.

    The media is primarily owned by jews. They tell you only what they want, when they want and HOW they want.
