Making a Fact: The Conservative Way

It is being told. A long held secret no one wanted to say: The MSM is owned and grossly influenced by the far right political machine. As we start to move into a possible second term of a Black president, just how far this ugly fact of influence goes has revealed itself.

I know Democrats have heard and felt the swing in the news. You would think the MSM would of moved away from the negative approach Fox News displays. No, that was not to be. Instead, the MSM viewed the far right swing in news as a possible increased viewership possibilities and identified a target audience that could bring in money. Yes, it is still "the dollar bill yall."

Now,there are what I saw someone from C&L wrote a "fox news lite", no caps, who look like Fox, talk like Fox and, as people are starting to report, lie just like Fox News. This includes, but not limited to CBS, ABC, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and more. Can you imagine how much control of the message this yields? It is power with a capital "P".

Kicking & Screaming

The word is out: The Republican convention could of been called the lying convention. For the first time since I can remember, all of the media did not do this phony fair and balanced routine that bypass the all out lies committed by the GOP. However, there is still a few media diehards who see things in the usual "horse race" objective way. CBS's Bob Schieffer is one of those diehards.
During "Meet the Press", on Sep. 2, 2012, Rahm Emanuel totally overlooked the strongest arguing point against Mitt Romney's Welfare attack that claims Barack Obama wants to get rid of the work requirement. Instead, he gave a long drawn out explanation a Harvard Grad would of been tired of. He only needed to say it was a lie.

During the same "Meet the Press" show noted above, the host Dick Gregory invited the conservative elite to counter the damage made in the recent Republican convention. The guest, which included the great Newt Gingrich, made their points without counter and taking responsibility for the lies generated during their speeches and convention.

My point is this, some of the media made to historic leap and fact checked the lies generated during the convention. while others still see things in the usual overlooked fashion they call Fair and Balanced.
