Miscellaneous Media Stoooopidity

Because it’s been a while since we did a media follies…here’re two…

 A/P:  “Iran election dispute escalates to new phase

Dispute??  Kinda like: “RMS Titanic experiences mid-ocean mishap

The Iranians are being slaughtered, but because our “President” doesn’t want to “meddle”, the A/P has to play this down to a “dispute”.  Meanwhile the Honduran people are trying to cling to their Democracy…but since Obama WANTS to meddle, AGAINST Democracy, they cover it as a “coup”.

 Then there’s this A/P story: “Deal reached to close Calif’s $26B budget deficit

Which contains this “splendid” paragraph:

“Schwarzenegger and Republican lawmakers refused to raise taxes any further, limiting lawmakers’ options. Democrats had fought to preserve basic social services, including welfare, in-home support and health care for low-income children.”

Apparently there wasn’t room in the paragraph to mention the Democrats concern for injured puppies, and wanting cross-walks for old people.

Agenda journalism!  Walter Cronkite is smiling UP.

    the real media follies, of course, are going to be evident over the next 10 days…like some prolonged meteor shower, only in this case it will be a shower of propaganda!

    The media is going to go “All In” on Obamacare…anything to help our Dear Leader push his agenda!

    If you have Congress Critters you haven’t contacted yet, NOW is the time!!

    I’ve been contacting people and signing conservataive radio petitions. Will it help? Sometimes I feel invigorated by being proactive.

    And then there are days when you see the overwhelming square footage that the media is able to capture — all the city people watching their boob tubes and soaking in all the MSM info, and it starts to feel discouraging.

    Justrand mentioning the black-out going on in Iran and their revolution to gain freedom. This along with Honduras trying to hold on to their fragile Constitutional freedom, while Obama fritters it away so he can gain Chavez’s ear — it’s all so crazy!

    Good night everyone. JustMary wouldn’t it be great if Obama just resigned. But, then we would have Joe Biden…oh well, forget that thought!
