Media Shamelessly Pushes Obama Care

2009 July 28

Liberal hopes for a quick health care bill are in collapse, as Senate Democrats push any floor action off until the fall, a move House Democrats may match this week. But if the Obama White House is upset that their plans for a huge expansion of government health care have been delayed, they surely cannot complain about the media coverage.

Last week, a new study by the Media Research Center’s Business & Media Institute (BMI) found broadcast coverage during the first six months of 2009 tilted heavily in favor of Barack Obama’s big government plan. BMI’s Julia Seymour and Sarah Knoploh looked at 224 health care stories on the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows from Obama’s January 20 inauguration through his June 24 prime time special on ABC.

Here’s the full story from newsbusters.org.

Propaganda perpetuated by a powerful media is perhaps the greatest challenge that conservatives face. It has demonstrated that it is fully capable of creating the image of a candidate it prefers, promoting him shamelessly through the primaries and the general election, shielding him from any negative coverage and promoting his agenda after he is elected. In essence, the concept of a free and unregulated press is dead in America.

Whould the Three Stooges ever lie? Better yet, are these clowns even capable of telling the truth? Yes Katie, we know what you think of America.

    Walter Cronkite was among the first to start spinning the news on television with his reporting and commentary on the Viet Nam war.

    It’s been all downhill since then.

    What do they care if the healthcare bill is horrid? It isn’t like they would have to use the system. Same with celebs.

    I am well down the path to concluding that our new president is another Chavez, or Castro..

    I agree with Beck that a march on DC is required. We must stop this government…

    I am afraid the time of waiting for a leader to come to our rescue may be passing…. what will the next stage be?

    Perhaps this provides a clue.

    Yes, perhaps. I am not afraid of him at all. I want to see the states tell him to go pound it, and watch him call the army, and see them tell him to pound it.

    If we can’t get a few states to stand up to this, well, let’s just see what happens..

    Let us make it so.

    The strategy for defeating this dirtbag is not complex and requires nothing more than remembering the advice for dealing with schoolyard bullies.

    He’ll run when his nose is bloodied, as will the lot of them.

    Just one will start the avalanche that will bury this clown.

    At this point we have reached what in chemistry is called an ‘unstable equilibrium’. Just one small seemingly random event will tip the balance.

    Maybe it will be the gun grabs after all. Everything else we will suffer, and finally when they come around to physically take them, that will snap it.

    I think we should all go to DC.

    Unless we all go to our state capitols and demand secession 😀

    I think we’re getting better organized and focused. They had a woman who was one of the organizers of McKaskill’s “tea party” on Greta. Apparently they had 1,000 – 1,200 attendees.

    rwy…I don’t know how big the September 12th Washington D.C. rally will really get. But at some point I am game for making a D.C. trip to show BIG numbers.

    What a hoot, me and Mrs. Justrand and Justmary could rent a small motor home and pick up BJG’ers on the way! Sweeeeet!
