Who Plays The Race Card

Media Matters - Juan Williams says Michelle Obama "sometimes uses" a "kind of militant anger"

Why does the media get a free pass when the question who is playing the race card is asked? Without the media, race would be but a small problem. With the media, it is always looming in the background waiting to pounce on its next victim.

The MSM, MSNBC, CNN, and as you just viewed, Fox news actually create, sustain, and drive the dynamics of race. They then have the nerve to set by and evaluate the topic as to who would dare use race as a political tool. This third party position they take is never talked about, confronted, or clarified to be a direct product of the MSM's need to sensationalize everything they think will improve their ratings.

I am committed to exposing this and other dynamics associated with unspoken negatives of the MSM.We need a counter drive of sorts. However, it is hard for the Democrats to address this issue head on. Recall the more Hillary and Bill Clinton asserted the media was behind race dynamics, the more the MSM attacked their campaign as a whole.

I truly look forward to a day when the media of old returns to claim its earlier glory. At present, each major network holds and exerts the right to have their resident racist. Pat Buchanan, Bill O'Reilly, Chris Tucker, and Glenn Beck all walk up to the door of racist intent while claiming it is their right to tell it like it is. CNN actually was a true leader in network news, commentators and special commendation. Today , they have did all they can do to distort whether commentators have the right to attack others under the banner of free speech. There is not time more evident then now for the need of a fair and balanced media.

John Is Right; Obama Should Not Of Went For This Format

Crooks and Liars » Rick Warren admits McCain was late for Forum and then says we’re attacking the Secret Service

I hate to use the word conspiracy because it is associated with being a crackpot. However, the word conspiracy totally applies when referring to what the right-wing media is doing to Barack Obama. It is reflected in the polls and in comments made by newscasters and media personalities.

I say it is reflected in the polls because of sites like RealClearPolitics. Their average is dominated by two tracking polls, Gallup and Rasmussen. These two tracking polls is lowering the perception of Obama’s lead by manipulating daily releases. Take a look at the additional pollsters history. Clearly you can see how Gallup and Rasmussen polls have managed to keep Obama’s average below 4%. I have been able to predict with fair accuracy releases by these two pollsters when another poll shows Obama with a lead of 5% or better. How low will they go? As you can see, they have went as far as to put McCain ahead by 4%. This valve like function has been going on since the primaries.

In the media, MSNBC is taking the lead in representing the worse bias toward Obama. On many occasions they seem to contrive debates with stronger points being made for McCain. In the provided link, you can clearly see the so-called Democratic strategist did not put up much of a argument for Obama. Having this much manipulation power can deliver a strong measure of control. To control the opposition is one thing, but to control pro and con of an issue is manipulation gone propaganda and has given the right-wing media a nasty advantage not matched by the Democrats.

I am not surprised they have enlisted the so-called evangelist. The Republicans have enjoyed their support for years, and the last I checked it has not changed. Maybe Obama should write this group off and chalk this up as experience.

Why Is CSPAN Giving Jerome Corsi A Forum

Media Matters - Corsi: Critics of Obama might be "put ... in jail" if he's president

So, If I wrote a book saying John McCain sold me high grade pot, would CSPAN put me on the Washington Journal? By giving Jerrome Corsi a well known forum like the Washington Journal, CSPAN, which has a conservative edge, is giving legitimacy to Corsi's lies.

No matter how you slice it, Corsi will get a boost from this appearance and CSPAN knows it. Anytime you give a lie a debate formate, you are giving that lie a life associated with choice: Mines or theirs. CSPAN is using its reputation for covering both sides to give this lie a chance to hurt Barack Obama. It does not matter if they put someone on from MediaMatters to counter the lies. The damage was done before the counter got on TV.

I know many would disagree with me, but I don't give the Washington Journal a fair rating at all. The very core call in structure is designed to minimize the popular opinion. As we speak, George W. Bush has an approval rating of 25% or lower, yet, on the Washington Journal they may as well have one 50% or better. The calls are set up for one Democrat, one Republican and one Independent. This format takes away from any sense of a issue becoming a outrage among the people. In fact, it hides the fact that the public may be for or against a issue. As it stands, this is a perfect format for Corsi because half will hate what he's doing and half the callers will make points for his actions.

Tied In Who’s Polls

Crooks and Liars » Senator Akaka slams Cokie Roberts

Cokie Roberts’ comments Barack Obama is tied with John McCain sparked a ongoing concern for bias polling. I have made several comments asserting bias in Gallup and Rasmussen polls. Here is a chance to make another. First off, why does so many media commentators use Gallup and Rasmussen polls to make their “its a close race” comments? Take another look at the history of polling for president this year; this time exclude Gallup and Rasmussen polls.

What you will discover is without Gallup and Rasmussen low numbers for Barack Obama, the polling picture would look different, by at least four points. I have followed this polling bias with much anger. The MSM uses Gallup and Rasmussen polls as if they were made for them. Upon closer inspection, you can clearly see Gallup and Rasmussen daily tracking polls are being used as a valve. When other polls release polls with a 5 point or better lead for Obama, Gallup and Rasmussen adjust to what numbers will keep McCain close to Obama. RealClearPolitics’ assemblage of polls document a everyday bias for John McCain. As I comment, todays polling display represent an attempt to wash out higher numbers, so Gallup and Rasmussen polls will have a stronger effect.

There is support for my assertion Gallup and Rasmussen polls are bias. Because every commentator using the noted polls are conservative in delivery of news, It is a hard thing to counter. However, someone can say to them: THERE ARE MORE POLLS OUT THERE THEN JUST GALLUP AND RASMUSSEN.

MSNBC The New Network Of Deception

Crooks and Liars » McCain’s Latest Lie: Obama is the ‘Big Oil’ Candidate

“Thou shell rationalize any facts needed to advance Republican gaols.” MSNBC uses the former statement like a biblical commandment. Racism, Democratic intentions and actions, polls, truths and facts mean nothing to this network of deception. Their primary goal is to create a reality that favors the Republican agenda. MSNBC is now worse then Fox News.

From Dan Abrams to Kieth Olbermann, they all twist information to suit issues, facts and special guest assertions. They lie and back it up with a rational line of scenarios no one will call them on in the moment they release their deceptions. Believe it this was an exception to the rule. You can thank Karl Rove for Nicole Wallace’s attempt to accuse the opponent of what they accuse you of. You recall they used this tactic with the claim Barack Obama was getting more attention from the press. Like this claim, it was a lie they hoped would catch on. The John McCain camp has to do something; their bias polls have been discovered and now stand to be washed out by true pollsters who give Obama more of a lead. It is known Gallup and Rasmussen daily tracking polls are being used as a option to lower Obama’s numbers as needed. You don’t really think McCain is beating Obama or one point behind him? If you do, I have some land in Alaska I can sell you really cheap.

It appears everything goes on MSNBC. Pat Buchanan boarder line racist statements, calling candidates children a whore to be pimped by their own Mother and anything they can use to keep viewers away from Fox news. One could make the argument actual news reporting is second to news creation in MSNBC. Where has all the professionalism went? It surely is not on MSNBC.


The Sheet Smelling Media Is At It Again

Crooks and Liars » David Gregory: Broader implications for the party

Ask yourself, do you inquire about your co-workers sex life or extra marital affairs? Does it concern you who your boss sleeps with? Would you wait outside a house, a hotel, or in the back of a car to find out who is having sex? If you did, you would be considered a pervert. This is in affect what the media does when they play got-ya with celebrity’s sex life.

I don’t give a shit who some one is f_ _ king, S _ _ king or playing patty cake with. It is their life, and I will give them respect because I want the same. If they are not messing with children, they have an adult right to be left alone.

What the media does amounts to sheet smelling. Most of them have the same kind of sexual habits as the very people they smear. If America stop playing the got-ya game with this strange obsession with the media, maybe there will a true transition of news focus to doing what they were created to do: REPORT THE DAM NEWS.

Why Should We Give Crooks More Land And Oil

Crooks and Liars » The Gang of 10: Barack Obama’s Energy Trump Card?

Logically, this plan to give the oil companies any of the people’s treasure is a bad idea. They have made record profits, and while doing so, they have did nothing to help with the high prices at the pump. Now, can you believe this, they want more to create another record breaking profit dynamic. I say like Ted Stevens of Alaska, “NO.”

The Republicans have a presumptuous nature to their strategies. Without addressing whether the people would be for giving Oil companies more land and oil, they have moved ahead to the oil company’s right to have it. drill it, and profit excessively from it. Make them back up; make them sure the wealth and help lower the current high prices by balancing the price of gasoline with their profits. Yes, use that as a bargaining tool, and if they don’t help to lower the prices of gasoline, don’t give them shit.

Instead of the Republicans sitting in the dark trying to persuade the public they are doing the people’s business, they should be using their influence to convince the Oil executives it is in their best interest to help with the gas prices. And, not letting the Democrats off the hook, they should be focusing on the same thing. Force the oil companies to earn the next record profit give away.


Its Time For The Republicans To Come Out Of The Dark Congress

Crooks and Liars » House Republican endorses ‘the Paris Hilton plan’ on energy

Enough with the stunts and desperate attempts at wining over public favor — any favor. Really its time for these guys to put something on the table besides filling the oil company’s pockets. One could argue the only forward thinking the Republicans have done with energy as been to make sure the same greedy oil companies have money and oil ten years from now. It will not work.

First off, can we take away the claim they speak for the majority of the people. What people? No one has asked me shit. The only way the Republicans can truly say they speak for the majority is to have a vote. I know in my heart they would loose hands down. As it stands, the use of Gallup, CNN, and Rasmussen polls are not a full representative sample of the this country’s people. They represent conservative interest and nothing more.

It is time for the Republicans to role up their sleeves and do some real bargaining with the oil companies. They have the contacts to bargain for help with lowering the gasoline. Not once has any of them came up with a plan to lower the price of gas by balancing the record profits of the oil companies. This should of been done months ago, and the Democrats missed pushing the issue. It is not too late. As it stands, every effort seems to lack focus and cohesiveness to move forward on this issue. A campaign slogan to “Think Balance” would help the oil companies share the wealth.

MSNBC News Or Opponent

Media Matters - On Hardball , Barnicle relied on misleading NY Times article to assert that Obama has raised more from big donors than McCain

I did a quick scan of how many stories were related to MSNBC. There are many. At what point to we rise the question what is their role in our election process? So far, there is many incidents that point to their support for John McCain. Yet, there are some questionable manipulation dynamics that bare review and concern.

Do you recall how vicious MSNBC was toward Hillary Clinton during the primary process? Most of Barack Obama's supporters did little to rise any concerns for the claim Chris Matthews' obsession with Clinton when beyond reporting to dedicating more then half his show bashing her. I know I was concerned for the unequal funding burden imposed on her from the endless attacks on her campaign. After record funding goals, she still came up short as a result of the attacking nature of the press, mostly MSNBC and CNN. It is one thing to battle a candidate and another to battle TV networks. The end result is she lost.

There were many who was concerned that all the love given to Barack Obama would turn sour when the general election came. As it stands, those concerns were well founded. MSNBC has dropped all support for Obama for, yes you guessed it, John McCain. From all of this I have one very import question: Why did they want Obama elected as nominee? Without having to note it, I have my own conclusions for why.

MSNBC and their conservative counter parts are not finished with Clinton. There is the matter of vice president, and they are making sure she does not get on the ticket. When a Republican says Clinton as the VP pick will help them, they are lying through their teeth. If that were the case, do you think they would broadcast it and campaign to make sure she is not chosen? As I note these comments Brewer from MSNBC is having a phony debate with a Republican and Democratic strategist . You know the Democratic strategist who seems to agree with every negative claimed against their Party. They are debating if Clinton is trying to steal Obama's nomination. From the video they used to make the claim, you have to stretch it to come to that conclusion, and MSNBC had no problem doing so.

My claim is this: What MSNBC is doing amounts to undue influence and questionable manipulation of the facts, airways and our election process. When you have a network with the financial influence MSNBC has, there is cause for concern. Now, until November, we have to watch this network do the same thing they did to Clinton to Obama. But now, the stakes are very high. I don't think this country can stand another Republican administration. This story will continue.

The Right-Wing Media Has A Lot Of Work To Do

Crooks and Liars » What Happened?

When does John McCain “shine?” So far, he looks like a total baboon under the best light. This man does not have the mental capacity to be president of the boy scouts. I mean he is missing much of what made him a fighter pilot. Only aging can do this. Yes, he’s too old.

Yet, the right-wing media has chosen him to be our president. At every opportunity, they come out with their new Gallup poll to show how close McCain is to Barack Obama. Gallup has had to work so hard they stop showing their history on the RealClear Politics site. Gallup and Rasmussen tracking polls give the Republican instant daily control over the polling averages. Gallup has had to change so much someone thought it would be a good idea to remove the tracking poll history. It could come back to hunt them.

I would not worry about polling manipulation if I were working for McSame McCain; I would be worried about what McCain himself might to to end the chances of him becoming president. He missing much, and it is easy to pickup on.

Essence Of The Al Qaeda In Iraq Offensive

Crooks and Liars » McCain Suggests Iraqi War-like Clampdown To Deal With Inner City Crime

"MCCAIN: And some of those tactics - you mention the war in Iraq - are like that we use in the military. You go into neighborhoods, you clamp down, you provide a secure environment for the people that live there, and you make sure that the known criminals are kept under control. And you provide them with a stable environment and then they cooperate with law enforcement, etc, etc."

The above outlines the gist of what we know as the Surge. It involved a door to door sweep through Iraqi neighborhoods. Long gone are the columns of offensive equipment that highlighted our latest technological advances. On occasion, they use our smart ass bomb technology that hit their target and everything around it. This is the same smart ass bomb weapons that create a insurgency loop. After killing an innocent, lets say a child, the relatives of that child become the next wave of insurgents hell bent on revenge.

I know John McCain cannot be thinking of this kind of offensive in the streets of America. While I know the use of smart bomb technology is out of the question, if they steal another election, I do see McCain using door to door tactics to quite opposition. The media has been very busy trying to give the impression McCain is close to Barack Obama and ready to take the lead. Hell, I would not be surprised if Gallup release a poll tomorrow with McCain in the lead. There is no way in hell McCain is beating Obama or even close to him. What you are seeing are polls made to order. Yet, I can’t help but feel we are being soften up for another stolen election.

I was watching Tom Brokaw on “Meet the Press.” He was interviewing Barack Obama during his European trip. Brokaw was so dismissive toward anything positive Obama did during the trip and wanted only to talk about hypothetical scenarios. I sat in front of the TV calling Brokaw every kind of bastard I could think of. He made me feel unimportant and I was not even there. After the program, I pondered what would happen if all of the media treated Obama in this way. There is no doubt Obama would have a problem. We would have to brace ourselves for another 8 years of Republican rule. I don’t think this country can live through another conservative administration.
