On Media Bias

"All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or, we can help lift it onto a higher level." ~ William Bernbach

My newest Blogroll addition, Wintery Knight, has posted an interesting entry on media bias.

I copied his links and posted them, one by one, to my Facebook status in hopes that my Liberal Doctor nephew will see them, read them, and learn something about the media. He actually sees no bias in mainstream media reporting, except, of course, for FOX News, which he claims is basically the propaganda arm of the Republican party.

I find this interesting, to say the least, since he is a Professor of Media Studies at Eastern University in Pennsylvania. He has even earned a Doctorate in the field.

How can someone who is considered an expert in media not recognize obvious bias? It's not like it's subtle.

Giving my nephew the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he is too close. He can't see the forest for the trees. His blindness reminds me of Edgar Allen Poe's short story, "The Purloined Letter". The object of his search is in plain sight and in the open for all to see, if they merely open their eyes and look.

Of course, that would require objectivity, and being a Liberal, that isn't possible.

In any case, I believe posting some articles about anything concerning media should attract his attention, and perhaps even hold it long enough for him to learn something he may have previously dismissed.

We can only hope.

Father's Day 2011

"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." ~ Ephesians 6:4

When I was a teenager, I was convinced my father was the stupidest man in the world. When I was in my twenties, with kids of my own, I was surprised how much the old man had learned in only about 10 years.

He is in Heaven now.

Today, in my late 50's (very late. I'm 59), with my 5 kids all grown up and with kids of their own, I realize that I am much more like my father than I ever thought or wanted to be.

But, it's OK. I kind of like myself now.

And, I love my father.

Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers out there in Blogland.

Palin Is Vindicated

"Though the vicious can sometimes pour affliction upon the good, their power is transient and their punishment certain; and that innocence, though oppressed by injustice, shall, supported by patience, finally triumph over misfortune!" ~ Ann Radcliffe

So, the Liberal Media hounds have pored through countless pages of Sarah Palin's e-mail documents ravenously looking for anything they could use to damage her reputation. Over 24,000 of them.

And what did they find?

The e-mails show that Sarah Palin is of stalwart character, a conscientious and effective Governor who actually did place the interests of her constituency and her state over her self interests. They showed a working mom who successfully balanced her time between her high pressure and highly scrutinized job with her personal time with her family.

A quote from this story: "Whether you like her or not is up to you, but the one big surprise coming out of an examination of 24,000 email messages is that there really is no surprise, no shocking inside story.

What you see with Palin is generally what you get."

What didn't they find?

No corruption. No dirt. No malfeasance. Not a smirch. Not one blot on her record out of 24,000 pages.

And, keep in mind this is only what the left wing Liberal media reported they found. What they said they found are simply snippets of the volumes of records they studiously and voraciously examined with a fine tooth comb. How many more records do you suppose they found that showed her to be even more intelligent and capable than anyone once thought?

Believe me, if there were any evidence at all of anything negative, you can be sure they would have gleefully announced it to the world, and by now, every single man woman and child in the world would know every detail.

In seeking to embarrass Palin, they have only managed to embarrass themselves. If it weren't so pathetic (and predictable)The Left wing Liberal State-run Media has egg on their faces, but I'll bet they won't apologize or even admit they are wrong about her. A perfect example of Liberal truth number 8:

Liberals cannot be embarrassed. They lack the gene to blush.

It surely must be a dark day in Liberal land today.

Moron Liberal Stupididty

"Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid." ~ Heinrich Heine

(ol' Heinrich must know Chris Matthews personally)

Apparently, according to Chris "Obama sends a chill up my leg" Matthews, if you are outraged by Democrat Representative Anthony Wiener sending pictures of his namesake to young women through Twitter, you are "culturally backwards":

Obviously, Matthews is another one of the elite Liberal intelligentsia, who know better than us poor dumb Americans what's proper behavior.

This guy is shameless. So is Wiener. So is just about every Liberal.

Now, let's all sit back and enjoy as Jim and other psychotic Liberals try to defend this idiot.

More Liberal Stupidity, With A Twist

"Deviant: Different from what is considered to be normal or morally correct." ~ Webster's Dictionary

In a Facebook discussion about the entrance of Rick Santorum into the 2012 Presidential race, I learned something new about Liberals. That is, how low Liberals will stoop to attack their ideological opponents.

Rick Santorum

One commenter in the thread said he wished Santorum would change his name, which prompted me to ask why. He responded that I should Google the name, "Santorum".

Well, I did as he suggested, and was appalled and sickened by what I found.

Is there a depth to which Liberals won't sink to disparage people?

From what I learned, an immoral, soulless, disgusting, perverted Sodomite named Dan Savage, feigned outrage at Former Senator Rick Santorum after he stood up for family values, and attacked the Senator by creating an alternative definition of the word, "santorum".

Disgusting little Pervert

As is typical of the Liberal mindset, Savage's hateful response to Santorum's somewhat innocuous statement was extremely disproportional to the alleged offense.

I use the words "alleged" and "feigned" purposely, because typically, these Liberals really know the truth but choose to deny the facts.

This is the sort of person who would have us accept his aberrant filthy, disgusting, immoral, deviant lifestyle as normal, and even worse, natural!

Do you think a mind capable of creating such a vile, disgusting, synonym for anyone's name is a natural, normal mind? Or is it a deviant mind?

A perverted mind-in-the gutter like that is the only sort of mind that could conceive such an absolutely revolting concept.

There is no love in this "man", and I use the term loosely. There is no honor. There is no respect. He is a vile, disgusting, little pervert. I cannot conceive the amount of self-loathing this deviant little creature possesses.

He is appropriately named.

Savage's entire biography reads like a litany of perversion.

He is nothing more than a savage. He is everything that is evil in the world and nothing that is good. He is evil incarnate.

And, like every other Liberal, he is unbelievably stupid.

Obama Is Stupid

"Get all the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything." ~ Frank Dane

The second of my posts about how the leftists treat Conservatives as opposed to how they treat their own:

If Sarah Palin was really wrong about Paul Revere, her gaffe would still be less of a stupid idiotic statement than this one:

And yet, no Liberal so-called journalists dare admit the obvious.

Paul Revere's famous ride occurred over 225 years ago, during a time when the media was limited to writing, by hand, about events that transpired, after the fact, and before witnesses, and rarely were the events actually witnessed first hand by those who reported them in the newspapers of the day.

What Sarah Palin said was in response to a reporter asking her what she had learned about history on her stop in Boston.

She already knew what all the rest of us did, that Revere rode through the towns, alerting the people that the regulars were coming, but she had learned something else that day. She learned he also warned the British soldiers that the American patriots were ready to defend themselves.

Now, after 225 years plus, Sarah Palin knows more about the events on that day than Barack Hussein Obama knew about the current geographical boundaries of the United States of America!

And the Libs say she's stupid!

Well, if she's stupid for knowing facts that the reporters don't know, how stupid does that make Obama?

I mean, she has an excuse for possibly being slightly mistaken about something that happened 225 years ago.

Obama has no excuse.

He's just an imbecile.

And so are the rest of the Liberals.

Taking Off The Gloves

"Women should be obscene and not heard." ~ Groucho Marx

Since my last post, I am still fuming over the treatment of Sarah Palin by so-called journalists and their mindless Liberal drones.

And, it's not just Sarah Palin. It's anyone who espouses Conservative values.

These reporters follow Palin around like vultures, hoping their victim will accidentally drop a tiny tibit of meat they can jump on and devour.

The recent video taken of Sarah Palin on her bus tour is only the latest example of the feeding frenzy that dogs her every move. And frankly, every highly visible Conservative has the same problem. She stumbled over her words (something all of us have done from time to time, by the way) while talking about the role Paul Revere served in the days before the outbreak of the War of Independence. Within minutes after her unfortunate choice of words were uttered, the video went viral and every Liberal in America was labeling her stupid, incompetent, and uneducated.

But, she was not wrong. What she said was historically accurate. It just didn't come out the way she intended (this happens sometimes, particularly when she isn't reading the words verbatim off a teleprompter). But the reporters didn't care. It sounded wrong to them, and that was enough.

The hounds were loosed.

This is the same playbook that is always used by Liberals:

Attack the messenger and don't address the message.

I don't know when it started, but this is the treatment all high profile Conservatives have received for as long as I can remember. I can remember how Richard Nixon was attacked. During the famous debates between he and JFK, the press never talked about the merits of his argument. They were too focused on his physical appearance. As if physical appearance has anything to do with ability.

If physical appearance is synonymous with stupidity, then Helen Thomas must be the stupidest person on earth.

Since then, every Republican President and Presidential candidate has been ridiculed by the left. All of them have been described as stupid, ignorant, moronic, etc. They called Gerald Ford, an all star college athlete, stupid and clumsy. Ronald Reagan was forgetful, senile, too old, and yes, stupid. George H. W. Bush was stupid and a liar. We are all too familiar with the insults leveled at George W Bush; Stupid, a war criminal, a chimpanzee.

Through it all, Republicans and Conservatives have borne it all with grace and aplomb. We haven't sunk to their level. We have been far too noble. For the most part, we have steadfastly defended our leaders without resorting to ad hominen, vitriolic, hateful, personal attacks.

Basically, the same tactics the left have always used against us.

Well, I've had it with them.

From now on, I'm going on the offensive. I can play this game, too. I'm fighting fire with fire. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

And, I'm starting with this following clip:

My God, Barbara Walters is an idiot! Listen to her stumble over her words (kind of like Sarah Plain did)and accidentally say, "If Sarah Palin can still ride around in her bus and be considered to the possible president, this man can override this, stay in Congress, and just hope there's another scandal..."

What? Hope there's another scandal? You think that will solve ol' Weiner boy's problems, you dumb broad? Boy, what a moron this BaBa WaWa is! What a waste of oxygen! She needs to just shut up, and let people think she's stupid instead of opening her mouth and removing all doubt!

Oh, and By the way, Anthony Wiener is a pervert.

But that's not a personal attack. It's a fact.

Family Feud?

"I didn't leave the Democrat party. The Democrat party left me." ~ Ronald Reagan

Tonight, I went too far, it appears. On Facebook, my lovely niece, who unfortunately, is an avid Obama supporter and a "progressive", posted a link to the following video with the accompanying comment, "Um.....Haha???" on her brother's (my Liberal Doctor nephew) wall:

Afterward, her Liberal friends posted these comments:

"Her ignorance is astounding!! I feel dumber just hearing her jabber :-D" -- (This from a woman who is a "Christian minister". Real Christian, eh?)

Then another comment from my niece: " too! She was just making it up as she went along...she should really not speak to people when she's in public."

The last comment came from my nephew: "Maybe she should have written the Paul Revere poem on her hand?"

(Note to myself: Maybe my learned nephew should study his history instead of simply taking what amounts to poetic license as fact)

I couldn't resist responding. I posted a comment (without even viewing the video first) pointing out that their hero, Barack Hussein Obama once remarked that the United States has 60 states. He said, and I'm sure my two readers will remember, he had been in 57 states with one left to go and that he wanted to go also to Alaska and Hawaii, but his people wouldn't let him. That makes 60 states in all. I then wrote something like "everyone makes mistakes, but the difference between Obama and Palin is that Obama hates his country, and Palin doesn't."

I say I said "something like" because later, when I checked back, I found my comment had been deleted.

I later posted a link to the article linked below, but that,too was deleted.

I guess I went too far. I don't want to anger my relatives, of course, but they drew first blood, so to speak. I must admit I was a bit surprised that no one attempted to argue with me, and instead, took the cowardly way out. It embarrasses me to admit that these are my blood relatives, with college degrees (My nephew even has a PhD), and they display this type of ignorance.

So, since I obviously wasn't going to be allowed to post further comments there, I posted my thoughts in my own status. But not until after I found this story.

After I watched the video she posted, I became angry, to say the least. This is what I wrote on my status, along with the above article:

"I get really sick of "progressives" launching hateful, vitriolic, ad-hominen attacks against Conservatives. These cowards can't refute the message so they attack the messenger. Sarah Palin is a patriot. Their "hero" is a Marxist. They can't deny either of these facts."

I had more, but I went over the word limit, so I added a couple of comments to my comment, to wit:

"Can they point to anything Sarah Palin has ever said that indicates she hates America? No, but we can point to quote after quote that indicates Obama does. Does this make "Progressives" anti-American? Not necessarily, but it certainly makes them look ignorant. Now, we have proof that Palin was historically correct, and the egg is on the "progressives" faces. Payback's a bitch, aint it?"

And, lastly:

"Is there anyone who can tell me what exactly is it about Sarah Palin that so frightens Liberals? Is it because she loves America? Is it because she believes in God? Or is it because she proudly speaks the truth about the Marxists who are trying to destroy our country? What is it? I really want to know."

Still feeling righteously indignant, I continued with another post, with another link to accentuate my point:

"More on the media's lies about Sarah Palin. Are the Liberal's embarrassed to be proven wrong yet again? No. They lack the gene to blush."

I fear I have created a rift in my family. I may never be invited to Christmas Dinner again.

But, I can't sit back and take it. And, I won't.
