The Media Liars * Open Thread *

by

 

Media and its liars rule this country. Powerful Politicians may think that they rule but they do not.

Media chooses our candidates for office and then chooses the winners of the elections of those candidates. If you are fortunate enough to be far to the left, love abortions and handouts for the parasitical – media will love you. To the right? They’ll bury you.

However, even those on the left must be careful lest they put a foot wrong because media is a fickle friend and will turn and rend you if you say the wrong thing. Thus saying “black lives matter” is perfectly alright but saying “all lives matter”, not so much. Bullies like to flex their muscles and make people cower and media is the ultimate bully. And government is right behind them.

Media rules our roost because even thought most Americans don’t respect or trust them, for some inexplicable reason, the public listen to and believe them most of the time. I know that makes no sense. Not making sense doesn’t make something untrue.

I was often “uncomfortable” with media reports for many years. I kept telling myself they wouldn’t lie to us – would they? Because I was then a Democrat and the slant was usually in a direction of which I approved I played ostrich for far too long. I am ashamed of myself for that. Were I still flexible enough I would kick my own butt.

Media bias became too flagrant for me to ignore back in 2008. Funny thing is that it was used against a woman I now loathe but supported back then. And honestly compels me to say I think she was treated shamefully by her own party and absolutely disgraceful by the media. Loathing Hillary now and not saying how badly she was treated then would make me as big a liar as she evidently is.

In 2008 the MSM decided that they didn’t want Hillary. They fell madly in love with Barack Obama. Other than his skin color there really was no there – there. He was supposedly a brilliant speaker and yet whenever he goes off script or off his teleprompter – his foot found it’s way into his mouth. Fortunately for him media covers his blunders, gaffes, and stupid remarks.

There was no doubt that the media “watch dogs” had become Obama’s “lap dogs”. There were many cartoons and books about this “slobbering love affair” but I’ve always thought the brilliant Michael Ramirez cartoon below captured it the best.

What was once a secret is now a well know fact. Media bias is alive and well and lives in the USA. Every day in your newspapers, on the television and on-line, media lies, spins, distorts, declines to report and makes a mockery of the job they are supposed to do. Many of them get paid millions to do that. Is this a land of opportunity or what?

After seeing the debacle of 2008, where I voted for McCain and Palin, two people I now loathe also, I became an Independent. I wasn’t all that thrilled with voting for McCain and I didn’t trust the Republicans much more than I trusted the Democrats.

My misgivings about both the media and the Republicans were to prove right.  After all the years of voting and following politics I finally had my eyes opened. I know, it took me long enough didn’t it?

What those opened eyes saw was a corrupt media that is supposed to be watching out for corrupt politicians and government for us. Not choosing. Not taking sides. Reporting. Such an easy concept really and yet one that most of the media today discards along with their integrity.

I have no doubt that many/most of the media sincerely believes in the causes they espouse. I don’t care. Their job is to inform not convince people over to their side of an issue. Or a candidate. Or anything else. Just report damnit!

Those of us that were disgusted with the ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC for their blatant left bias has a chance, and still have one, to watch FOX embarrass itself in it’s love affair with buffoonish Donald Trump. Everything we said about the lefty media is proving equally true with the one channel that was supposed to reflect the right.

FOX has, for the most part, slobbered over Donald Trump as bad or worse than the rest of the MSM slobbered over Obama.

Media from the left, after giving Trump billions in free advertising has turned on Trump. No surprise there, ask John McCain how his good friends in the media treated him once he tossed his hat into the presidential election ring.

McCain discovered that all his pals in the media were suddenly sharks smelled blood in the water around him and swam towards it and him with malice aforethought ready to tear and rend. He didn’t help his cause but that wouldn’t have mattered much. The media was in love with Obama and all others must be put down. Including Hillary.

As James Wolcott said:

“The lies the government and the media tell are amplifications of the lies we tell ourselves. To stop being conned, stop conning yourself.”

Many of us no longer follow the MSM. At all. We read snippets of what they say or write on-line. We are amazed when someone in the MSM writes/says something fair or true. That’s the biggest condemnation of all IMO.

    Even Solar Energy Can Be Racist

    What Amendment 4 does guarantee is every Floridian’s ability to go solar more easily and more affordably.

    That is precisely why it is racist. Anything that benefits whites is racist. It is not enough that it benefits blacks too. It’s like saying “All lives matter,” which is a confirmed thought crime. If something does not benefit blacks exclusively, it is racist.

    Why does the media give this crook so much air time? It is an undisputed fact that he’s a liar, a cheat and a thug. So we see, quite clearly what the media likes.

    Never expect media to explain Obama logic, or lack thereof so perfectly.

    where is the money coming from?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Trust Trump to be less transparent than Clinton. If he isn’t bragging about where this came from there is something wrong. He’s bragging about raising money but not about where it’s coming from. Something stinks.

    arianna left the building.

    I never liked that woman from way back during the clinton years

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Arianna Huffington is another of those dishonest women that seem to dominate our media. She’s spewed her venom and made a ton of money. I suspect she’s accomplished what she wanted to accomplish.

  8. kenoshamarge Says:

    You all know how much I loathe Trump. And Hillary. As do large numbers of the voting public – but the media bias for her and against him is pathetic.

    Hell even the lefty media knows it and they dislike her too.

    I find this very interesting

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Interesting and indicative of the sad state the GOP done to itself. They can see the total destruction of their “brand”. If they continue to support Trump, as the establishment has done no matter what the foolish Trumpanzees say, the destruction may be fatal. The PT
      B, that don’t give a rat’s patoot about the country, do care about losing some of their power. Perhaps a lot of their power.

      Reince Priebus may have a lucrative position provided for his loyalty to the establishment in his future, but I don’t see him surviving his second losing election as head of the RNC. Especially if it’s as massive a loss as seems to be heading Trump’s way.

  15. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Good. Lord. We told them he was a Democrat. Everything he is saying now is pretty much what the Dems want: http://therightscoop.com/facepalm-trump-is-now-blatantly-advocating-america-killing-democratic-policies/

    And Helen, it makes sense that the RNC is going to start focusing on down-ticket ballots.

    Gee. If only someone had warned Republicans abt who Trump really is. Ahem..

  16. helenk3 Says:

    I am watching Judgement at Nuremberg. With the anti-semitism running rampart in colleges today, every college kid should be made to watch it.

    • helenk3 Says:

      rampant

    • helenk3 Says:

      random thoughts

      the backtrack bunch want to punish climate change deniers. Only certain lives matter now. Anti-semtism is through out the land. the DOJ has become backtrack’s dept of crime. Our education system is turning out the indoctrinated brain dead who could not do too many jobs.the country needs one hell of a wake up call

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I watch that movie at least once a year. There are so many lessons to be learned from it. And so many great performances by some of the best actors ever on the screen. IMO

      What can you say about Spencer Tracy’s genius that hasn’t already been said? And Burt Lancaster gave such a powerful performance. And Judy Garland? To have that talent, as well as such a beautiful voice within one woman? Fantastic and yet she was such a troubled soul.

      Sorry, like I said it is IMO, one of the best, if not the best, movies ever made.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Sorry you got caught in the “span filter” mcnorman and I wasn’t around to get you out. That often happens with twitter images. Why I don’t know. But then there is much I don’t know.

      Cuomo seems oblivious to what he’s done. Or else they just don’t care anymore. Or they think it safe because of the idiot things Trump says.
