What should be the fate of the Left Wing Lame Stream Media?

KCurtis 2012/07/08 14:18:41

Other than his rather bizarre wistful recalling of how great things were in Nixon's America, yesterday in an off-teleprompter stump speech, President Barack Obama told two humongous whoppers. First, he distorted the Clinton years,
as though those years in any way resembled, well, what the Obama years
look like this very day. Secondly, he twisted his very first campaign,
the most Chicago-style of Chicago-style campaigns, into some sort of Mr.
Smith Goes to Washington struggle -- when he ran unopposed.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Over the airwaves and on the stump,
Obama is currently running around the country portraying his opponent
Mitt Romney as an outsourcer. This is a proven lie.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Obama told students that a bill to freeze student loan interest rates would save them $1,000 a year when it will only save them $87.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Just a few weeks ago it was revealed that Obama told no fewer than three-dozen falsehoods in his autobiography.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

We just learned that Obama lied about his relationship with a domestic terrorist.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

We just learned that Obama lied about his membership in socialist New Party.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Sure, the media will defend itself by stating it reported on these falsehoods. But dutiful reporting and holding the President accountable are two entirely different things.

As recently as yesterday, this
President ran around the country brazenly spouting things that are
objectively untrue and, as it has always done in the past, the corrupt
media adamantly refuses to make Obama pay any kind of political price
for misleading the American people and distorting what is known to be

First off, the media knows Obama will
have to lie -- will have to portray himself and his past and his record
and his opponent's record as something it is not in order to win

Secondly, as we've seen with Politico and Washington Post, the media sees its job as aiding and abetting and covering up this President's lies.

Back in November, Romney ran this ad and the media EXPLODED
for an entire week claiming Romney had taken Obama out of context. The
media didn’t just explode, it went insane over this and was obviously
grabbing hold of the lamest of excuses to help Obama define Romney as

Meanwhile, Obama runs around the
country a proven liar about his own biography, Romney's record at Bain
Capital, and his own record, and what do his Media Palace Guards do?

They just keep guarding his palace.

Good dog.

    Truth seems to have lost it's popularity. Romney better step up his game. I'm just appalled at the lack of integrity in America right now. I guess everyone has their price and for the bottom 50% it's been met!

    Well considering Fox has won every time slot, they are hurting.

    But it gets worse. They have more viewers than all the others combined in those slots.

    So, LSM is a losing bet.

    The lamestream media should progress as they have been doing . Dying off slowly but surely. CNN and MSNBC are jokes, and network news is dead. CNN cannot even afford legitimate news sources for stories (AP). They now create their own.

    I am a firm believer in what goes around comes around. They are already receivingtheir just desserts, record low ratings and revenue, with many on the verge of going out of business. And it will only continue as long as they serve up half truths and lies in defence of the lies of their messiah and his cohorts.

    when finally someone read obama's book, and it was discovered that obama ate dog, the press furnished recipes. obama can support gay marriage, but his flings with larry sinclair went un reported other than in tabloids. the millions obama spends defending (yet) his birth place and social security NUMBERS and draft card forgery are never reported. if obama were caught eating babies, the press would praise cannibalism.
    obama exists only at the whim of the press. if they turn on him, he will be tried for treason when the truths come out publicly.

    I have read many blogs like this day in and day out, what is said is true but it falls upon deaf ears, we complain, we moan, we get angry, we throw a couple of insults for the choir to read but to date nothing has been done, absolutely nothing. We know the left wing corporate media along with members of Hollywood and some Corporations are out there corrupting the system to select someone who who they believe should lead without listening to the people but yet we sit here on a blog that really doesn't even reach a tenth of the population to make our case, so we are basically silenced.

    Unless we show a physical response by getting off our duffs and start showing up at the doorsteps of these media outlets, nothing will change, nothing, so we will sit here and continue to get angry, complain and moan and the left will continue to laugh and play us for fools.

    I tried that. I tried to organize protests at Affiliate Stations across the US. It didn't get covered.

    At least you tried, many others do not even attempt. IMO, instead of many loosely protest at affiliate stations, there needs to be one large protest at the headquarters of say, NBC, they will have no chose but to cover it, why? Their competition is right next to them (Fox) and from there I guarantee a snowball effect.
  • mikeyav... KCurtis 2012/07/12 16:05:02
    the mainsreatm media know the truth, their mission is to hide it and ridicule anyone who who is not convinced that obama is nothing less than a harvard lawyer from kansas who is 50 % black. but truth, like water, will get through, and when it does, obama will be tried for treason, and so should the powers at media.

    The BEST thing that CAN happen to the Left WIng Democrat Propaganda machine ONCE known as the Mainstream Mass Media is EXACTLY what IS happening..

    They need to be rejected by the fact seeking American Public that INSISTS on being told the truth.... The traditional MSM should go the way of Air America and it WILL someday..

    But hey.. We have 60 YEARS of this bias on their part.. They have insinuated every aspect of the industry.. They have created an environment where TRUTH withers away and cannot survive..

    It CANNOT be fixed.. It MUST be REPLACED.. The very foundation upon which they are built has been FOULED beyond redemption..

    And they WILL not go down peacefully..They will fight.. They will attack.. They will lie and distort until the LAST man and woman but their FATE is no longer in their hands..

    It's in the hands of the American People..

    We must NEVER forget that ALL that evil needs to FLOURISH is for GOOD men and women to stand by and do NOTHING and WE,, the PEOPLE,, have been doing EXACTLY that..

    We have been doing NOTHING for FAR too long..

  • paul 2012/07/09 06:13:06
    These were the things Glenn Beck was revealing about this creep we have in the White House and it is George Soros who is financially backing Barack Obama. It was Soros that pulled the strings to get Beck off of the air.
    For its part, Media Matters announced on October 20, 2010, that it had received $1 million from Soros. The group issued a statement from the billionaire saying:

    Despite repeated assertions to the contrary by various Fox News commentators, I have not to date been a funder of Media Matters. However, in view of recent evidence suggesting that the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News hosts may incite violence, I have now decided to support the organization. Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.

    Although Soros had not personally donated to Media Matters before that time, it was “developed” with help from the Center for American Progress (CAP), funded by Soros. CAP gave Media Matters some office space when it was being formed. What’s more, Media Matters received funding from the so-called Democracy Alliance, which is funded by George Soros.

    For every half truth or flat out lie they tell they are fined $1000. For every half truth or lie made by a politician that they ignore they are fined $1000. When they reach $1,000,000 in fines, I'm guessing about a month from now, they lose their FCC lisense for 1 month ! If this happens three times they lose it PERMANENTLY !

    Eh, if only we had one of those laws that I believe Canada has, pertaining to it being illegal to falsify the news.... Fox would no longer be operational. What a lovely country we would have then. One can only hope.

    thats why they are not allowed to broadcast from Canada land, because they DO lie.
  • Hawkeye Nestofa... 2012/07/09 12:14:09
    IF the Progressives had had their way HERE in America like they did in Canada telling the truth HERE would be defined as lying as well..

    Ladies and Gentlemen.. Let's us NOT forget that for DECADES the Left has defined Truth and Lies as MATTERS of OPINION.. They did the SAME thing with right and wrong..

    We HAD the left trying that BS here.. They called it the "Fairness Act" and it was ANYTHING but fair.. It was designed to ELIMINATE non approved speech from the airwaves.. If THEY didn't like it,, It was LIES and the bill was SPOSORED and PUSH for by Harry Reid who once held up his OWN official voting record that his opponent was running against and called it SLANDER..
  • Nestofa... Hawkeye 2012/07/09 14:57:38
    yes but there is a difference between a lie and the truth... which you obviously dont see.
    Fox LIES, has been proven to lie, AND falsify and as such are NOT allowed to broadcast from Canada. there is a simple truth in that.
    Truth is not opinion... truth is fact, something that, simply the right, dont have a handle on. Cry all you want, but opinion is just THAT
  • mikeyav... Nestofa... 2012/07/09 15:14:10
    glennbeck had a red phone for the whitehouse to call anytime they thought he was lying. they never used the red phone to dispute anything beck said. but anita dunn and van jones got outta the white house staff very quickly after beck exposed them as mao worshipping leftists.
    fox has never been called out on a lie. do you know of one?

    Oh yes I get my "verifiable information" from left wing news sites. In case you haven't heard they've been lying to you for years.
  • mikeyav... Nestofa... 2012/07/10 18:37:51
    youare suggesting then that the unemployment rate under obama is not 8.2%?
    my education encompassess journalism and i have yet to fault a lie from fox news.
    and the red phone was real. obama just couldn't dispute beck's facts and remain credible in even the eyes of his adoring press. best leave it alone...like his kenyan birth and his social security numbers and his college records and his passports and his revoked law license and his pals ayers, rezko, khalidi, wright, and his muslim faith...oops, sorry, that was a slip.
  • KCurtis mikeyav... 2012/07/11 00:59:45
    typical liberal sans facts.
  • Nestofa... mikeyav... 2012/07/11 12:21:22
    If you look at the graphic carefully... they claim that in march the unemployment rate was at 8.8% ok?? see that??? now go to the end they have it at 8.6 percent yes????
    now look at the graph line and the point at which the axis crosses.. its at 9% higher than the march figure. the facts are they are misleading, you may say its a mistake or blow it off, but it is non factual in its rendering. I never claimed anything about where unemployment is and I prefer to use the U6 numbers, where the figure is higher, due to all the people being included, that has gone down from 19% to 14.4(at last reading in may)
    Why would the president bother with beck, the king of douchebags who doesnt rate a special call just to pander to Becks " zombies" because he "dared" him too.
    Oh you are a birther too??? say no more, you arent worth the keyboard pressure
  • Hawkeye Nestofa... 2012/07/09 15:25:27
    Again..... I say that YOU are doing exactly what the left ALWAYS does.. Accuse others of what YOU yourself are guilty of.. How EASY it must be to just call an opposing opinion a lie and have it BANNED rather then PROVE that YOU aren't the liar.. How SIMPLE minded and child like your leaders MUST think you to feel that such protections are necessary..

    Thank GOD that while YOU were still banging your foreheads against the tiles on the floor to pay homage to such leaders,, OUR Founders saw the LIGHT of TRUTH and made certain that the PEOPLE would have the right to decide for themselves which side of an issue was true or not..

    Winning an argument through CENSORSHIP.. The MANTRA of the TYRANT..
