Liberal Media My A$$...

From a Buzzflash reader:

All The Unreported Bush Scandals

UNreported Bush Scandals with Supporting Web Links


"The media is soooo slanted to the RIGHT and soooo LAME in their coverage, that I have given-up and STOPPED WATCHING ANY "NEWS" on ANY STATION with the exception of C-Span and PBS. I also depend ENTIRELY ON reading my own INTERNET NEWS that I find by non-television Internet websites.

"Proof of UNreported Bush Scandals by The Media CorpSE vs how the media jumps all over Democratic problems:

"They are all over DEMOCRATIC Sandy Berger, non-stop, 24/7, with lame source info: 'he stuffed info into his socks and pants (and we're not talking pant pockets), etc.' Remember ALL the 'Monica 24/7' coverage? Any country could have dropped an atomic bomb on The United States back then, and Monica would still get top billing.

"But when is the last time the major media channels went IN-DEPTH about ANY of these news Bush-Gates?"

Dig this list

I'd hate to see what it would be like if Bush had not restored honor and dignity to the White House...

The reason why the Mainstream Media Propaganda Machine is slanted right is taht they buy the shit the W, Rove and Co dish by the bucket and spew it back at us like we don't have a critical mind at all. Misunderestimating all of us. Go directly to the press briefings from whitehouse dot gov and you can see the spin comes right out the front door, like they did today trying to paint all protestors as pro-terrorist. I posted about it earlier today for those who are click averse and don't want to surf around a government location.

Add to that the fact the new "journalists" have little knowledge about how to research and write their own stories and you end up where we are now. Don't go looking for the crooked stuff folks, why here's a nicely packaged story for you to run with.

And as our apathy sinks in, we pretend that nothing is wrong...

chuckle, chuckle...those Democrats and their love of "gates"

Could it be that the reason that the media is not just jumping in and reporting just anything is that they are being held accountable by alternative media for getting their facts straight? (ie: Dan Rather, etc.)

Just wondering...

I don't know Jack...could be that they've stopped learning how to actually look for the facts and now just accept what is handed to them on a plate.

And it seems to me that the conservatives had just as much love for "gates" during Clinton's presidency. Funny how things look from the other side of the lawn, isn't it?

Jack Mercer said...

Could be...we do see a lot of that nowadays don't we.

And your right about the Republicans--they love the "gates" too.

Aint politics grand!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've replied... sorry, everyone! Anyway, I'm glad you guys mentioned the "gates" thing. It's funny, but the scandal that gave us that suffix has become the one by which all others are judged. And because of that, the republicans turned into a party of "your scandal is worse than our scandal!" And so American politics, for the last twenty-odd years, has been little better than supermarket tabloid histrionics. Argh.

100% correct, Shea.
