    Taking Over the Media

    Bias is everywhere in the media. We have the MSM ignoring very important world events because their viewers prefer it that way. If they did report on Benghazi do you think the election would have turned out differently?

    What can be done to take over the media? A buyout, a takeover? A new network? Reinvent how news is delivered on the internet?

    I'd love to hear thoughts on this.

    Nothing. The socialists are permanently entrenched in the media. We need to support the alternative media that doesn't get a tingly middle leg when President Obama speaks. The media has been far left for generations but it's just now coming out of the closet. They are hoping for a far-left dictatorship that will make the alternative media illegal and leave us just with "Pravda".

    Have you considered that FOX News also tells the news in the way their viewers wish to receive it and not in the way it should be reported.

    It's no wonder Republicans suffered a heart attack when they turned off FOX and learned the truth.

    And, where did they learn the Truth, BeeVee. Have you considered that it's MSNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, PBS/NPR, Reuters, and AP on the left and, let's see, or right, Fox News leaning right? And, Fox News is under constant attack from the far left demanding the FCC or the King do away with it. You want nothing but Pravda.

    It isn't really what I want. It's what you should get, instead of the daily dose of fiction with which you are provided by FOX.

    If you are seeing news in 15 different versions by MSM and a different one altogether by FOX, it's hardly conducive to claiming they are all biased and only FOX is valid.

    I think we need to put pressure on the MSM through calls, email, and asking our friends/family/aquaintances to do the same and ask their friends to do it too. Also support the (alternative) "new" media. Help and encourage our senior citizens to use the internet for their news more. Help them to be more computer savvy.

    It's inadvisable to talk politics at work, but choose your opportunities wisely. When people start complaining about the economy, employment, layoffs, inflation, etc, THEN give some carefully chosen opinions and suggestions.

    The truth? That barrack usama lied to enough minorities and stupid people to get reelected? We always knew that his lies and the MSM support would be hard to beat. We hoped the American public was smart enough to know better. The only truth is that we had too much faith in ordinary people. The country will pay through the nose and through the ass as this incompetent idiot does even greater damage.

    He promised Immigration Reform in his FIRST YEAR back before the 2008 election. He never once even talked about it, and then made more promises in his reelection campaigning. That alone should have lost him ALL of the Hispanic vote. He is a pitifully bad president, but a spectacular con man.

    Keep in mind that just under 50% of voters did not vote FOR barrack usama. And only 19% of the US population voted for usama.

    The media is biased. That pretty much includes everyone. Overall, I think Fox news will at least mention stories that don't do well for conservatives while MSM does not. But bias is still there.

    The MSM needs to be replaced. So, how do you spoon feed the masses? How do you drive stories that everyone should know about? How do you place them dead center in people's lives?

    Somehow, it appears that BeeVee prefers his "daily dose of fiction" from the left as though that is any less fictional.

    Go figure.

    The media isn't the problem, folks, the electorate is. The "new demographic" is largely made up of dependents on the old. The only solution for this problem is what the Roman farmers did when their new demographic, the street mobs, got control of government.

    They stopped producing and walked. John Galt style. Because, you see, most of the new demographic can't produce wealth, they have to take it from others. Take away the opportunity to do so, game over.

    The dems do a lot that the GOP should be doing. Registering voters in target areas. Pamphletting, knocking on doors, phone calls, busing the old people to the polls from church. If it works for the dems (as long as it isn't illegal) the R's should be doing it too.
