The Liberals Have Taken Over The Media

From the Denver Post:

I was informed of this fact by Rush Limbaugh. And Thomas Sowell. And Ann Coulter. And Rich Lowry. And Bill O'Reilly. And William Safire. And Robert Novak. And William F. Buckley, Jr. And George Will.
And John Gibson. And Michelle Malkin. And David Brooks. And Tony Snow. And Tony Blankely. And Fred Barnes. And Britt Hume. And Larry Kudlow. And Sean Hannity. And David Horowitz. And William Kristol. And Hugh Hewitt.
And Oliver North. And Joe Scarborough. And Pat Buchanan. And John McLaughlin. And Cal Thomas. And Joe Klein. And James Kilpatrick. And Tucker Carlson. And Deroy Murdock. And Michael Savage. And Charles Krauthammer. And Stephen Moore. And Alan Keyes.
And Gary Bauer. And Mort Kondracke. And Andrew Sullivan. And Nicholas von Hoffman. And Neil Cavuto. And Matt Drudge. And Mike Rosen. And Dave Kopel. And John Caldara.

Yep, the conservatives can't get a word in edgewise.

For instance, did you know there is an ultra-leftist professor at the University of Colorado named Ward Churchill who wrote an essay three years ago in which he called victims of Sept. 11 "little Eichmanns"? Bet you never heard of him, as the liberal media elite likes to put the kibosh on embarrassing stories like this.
The mainstream media in this country are dominated by liberals. Look at how they all gave Bill Clinton a pass on the whole Monica Lewsinsky affair. Remember? It was never in the news. We never heard any of the salacious details.

And when the Downing Street memo and other Bush/Rove lies come out they are all over it! Wall to wall. Why, they do so much of this I can hardly keep up with the lost Aruba girl. How am I suppose to know what happened to her when there is all this Bush bashing going on?

This just in at Fox News ... the mainstream media in this country are dominated by liberals.

I stayed up til 1 a.m. the other morning just to hear Robert Kennedy Jr.s speech rerun on UCTV.
I had hoped transcripts were available. They are not. However, I came across an article that makes most of the points he made in his speech. If people only read one article, I would suggest it be this one. The environment is not a Republican or Democratic issue, it is an American issue. It concerns our children and grandchildren. He makes the point of how many people have asthma now, and that one in 6 women have so much mercury in their systems a child in their womb would be adversely affected by it. This situation could be easily corrected, but this administration stopped action against the corporations responsible. In his speech he said environmental sense made economic sense 100% of the time. etc. etc.

I had read that article yesterday linked by Buzzflash, I believe.
If you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one. Tell it often enough and people will believe it.

And per your program today we learn that unions are to blame for our healthcare crisis, not global big business think. Unions; like Big City Public Sector Unions whose
members you would think would not be so supportive of free market big business. Or maybe Some think it is o.k. if working people who have no insurance are forced to pay taxes so They can have Their benefits; no free market for Them, no sir. Or the "problem" of what to do about people who don't work and how they will pay their way. Yes, that's really looking at reality in a nation where 10s of millions of Working People do not have or can not afford insurance and must see if they can "qualify" or "get by" on public assistance. Hint: volunteer service to cover benefits and using the military and other public orgs to provide services. But after all, everybody is out for power and wealth, so its o.k. Ignore that there are those who put morals and ethics above power and wealth and that there are karl rove types who will be sure to attack them for their slighest offense while the karl roves amorally seek power and wealth. But after all, its o.k. because "everybody" is doing it. So, we can't blame the neighborhood
gangs; they are just trying to get power and wealth like everyone else. Oh, but we must follow "laws"
The "laws" that are made by those who have power and wealth. Which is why any nation, system, whatever must see to it that the basic needs of housing, health, food, education and justice are met first, THEN and Only Then can you seek after personal gain. This is what brings true freedom. Or you can just make personal gain the first and only and have institutionalized poverty and slavery. Once someone or something has power and wealth they can control the system to keep and increase that power and wealth at everyone elses expense. This is why progressive thinking brought in the progressive income tax and programs to meet basic needs, even if imperfect people mess them up. Of couse this makes people "lazy" and "dependent". People having to work two jobs certainly aren't lazy but they are Very Dependent. Of course, tax abatements, taxpayer bail-outs and a global race to the flat earth bottom would never make the owners "lazy", would it? The G8 meeting. Why are the wealthy and their reps meeting to decide what to do about Africa? Why can't the disposessed of Africa be meeting to determine what to do about the the first world, the wealthy and their reps? Its about who has Power. But put junior and his ilk in the same environment as these African people,with the Ability to Use the Natural Resources available, and see who really has power and who would not even be able to just Survive. The resources of the world belong to the people of Earth as a whole. Once the basic needs are met and precausions are made as best as possible to see that there is not an accumulation of wealth and power that will threaten the basic needs, then you will truly have the Freedom to seek personal gain. I say best possible because no system is perfect because people aren't perfect but at least try and meet the basic needs and provide justice. People in rural areas of the world are forced out not just because of gangs and in-fighting but because of big business consumerism which prevents them from being able to continue to make a living as they were, e.g., India (look at the 1000s of suicides among Indian farmers there because they have to leave their farming jobs because they can no longer compete) and with the passage of CAFTA the rural populations of Meso-America, expecially El Salvador. Haven't heard about these things. I wonder why?! By making the world more cooperative and sustainable, at least there would be a systematic chance of making things better. But we "must" have new markets and explotation, er "consumerism" because that's what's "true" and "real" and "necessary" and if such expansion ever stops you Really will go Broke in such a system, and for an "investment" nation that's scary. Really! Must have "markets" and "consumerism", that's not what Amos and the others said - before the fall.

This is a couple of paragraphs from an editorial about grazing on public lands. To read the entire article, go here http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/opinion/la-ed-grazing5jul05,1,4057873.story

Science Fiction
The altering of reports to fit policies is dismaying.

Once again a scientific report has been recast for the sake of political expediency and used as the basis for a federal rule that puts industry profit over the health of people and the environment. If that sounds familiar, it's because it has been happening regularly throughout President Bush's tenure.

In the most recent case, a government biologist and hydrologist complained that their findings on how cattle grazing damages wildlands were rewritten to produce contrary conclusions. A "significant adverse impact" on wildlife, for instance, somehow became "beneficial to animals." Then the Bush administration announced that based on these rosy findings, it would relax rules that limit grazing on public lands...

Ron, I don't know where to put links to articles except in this "comment" section. And what I am adding here not comments on your "liberal media" article it is supposed to be a comment on.

BUT, given the tone of todays (Thursdays show) I thought now would be a good time to link to an article I wrote after the election called "Rage," which begins this way.

By Lonna Gooden VanHorn

Because the American people are ill-served and ill-informed by a pathetic, fawning press more concerned about their “bottom line” and losing “access” to the movers and shakers of government than providing the American people with the information they need to make informed decisions, the most dishonest, dishonorable, immoral, and worst of all, staggeringly incompetent president in my lifetime will serve a second term, which he won? stole? because of his despicable “fear and smear” campaign and the laughingly absurd notion that he shares our “values.”

The headline of the Nov 4th London Daily Mirror read “How can 59, 054,087 people be so dumb?”
Mirror columnist Brian Reade wrote “God Help America” a scathing column on the stupidity of Americans in actually electing an “immature buffoon” over a much more capable and intelligent man who would have restored some of America ’s lost credibility among the family of nations. Because we instead elected Bush, he said it was a sad day for America and the world, but the simple fact that the majority of Americans voted for Bush/Cheney, men the Baghdad Girl Blogger calls “idiots,” proves, she and Reade both say, that we deserve what we will get.
Reade mourned the fact that “this once-great country” elected “a lawless cowboy to lead [Americans] further into carnage and isolation and the unreserved contempt of most of the rest of the world… A self-serving dim-witted, draft-dodging, gung-ho little rich boy, whose idea of courage is to yell: “I feel good,” as he unleashes an awesome fury which slaughters 100,000 innocents for no other reason than greed and vanity… a man without morals or vision. An economic incompetent who inherited a $2billion surplus from Clinton , gave it in tax cuts to the rich and turned the U.S. into the world's largest debtor nation.
A man who sneers at the rights of other nations. Who has withdrawn from international treaties on the environment and chemical weapons.
A man who flattens sovereign states then hands the rebuilding contracts to his own billionaire party backers.” A man who was elected by “self-righteous… red-necks, who believe God gave America the biggest dick in the world so it could urinate on the rest of us and make their land "free and strong"”
He asks Americans: “Have you learnt nothing? Do you despise your own image that much? Do you care so little about the world beyond your shores? How could you do this to yourselves?
How appalling must one man's record at home and abroad be for you to reject him?”
To read the rest of the article go here: http://www.opednews.com/goodenvanhorn_111204_rage.htm

And if you read it, and your blood boils, below is a link to a bit “lighter” one, meant to be satirical, to help you regain your sense of humor.

My Vietnam veteran husband went to the store today. He was gone a long time. The reason he was gone so long was because some man wanted to read the entire 80 plus pages on my truck!!

I think I will add to it on the bumper "Support our troops; impeach the incompetent administration that lied them to their deaths for corporate profit"

After all, because there are so few good jobs here, my husband and I will soon be moving anyway. And I have already made myself unemployable in this town. Previously, I was a bit restrained because Joe, at least needed to be able to get a job here, but now he has taken a job in a "blue" state! So, it matters little if I am run out of town.

There are 70 million cable subscribers in the U.S.
Out of 290 million people subscribers alone only account for 24% of the population
Bill O’Reilly at his best gets 3 million viewers a night while over 29 million people watch the three major network news programs each night. Most of the names you mentioned are cable personalities or receive exposure on cable news. It is ludacris to use them as a defense against bias in the media when they don't even get exposure to a greater percentage of the American people. It also is foolish to list names without any sort of figure about air time, number of articles written, numbers of viewers and readers, etc. Instead of being a piece about bias your comment is a piece bashing the talking heads of conservatism. Would you like to silence those people? Perhaps the SS could do that for you. Keep toting your freedom of the press banner while bashing any voice in opposition, it helps the RNC get more votes.

anon. Tell me, besides Air America where there are liberals regularly on the air. By liberals I mean people considered liberal by liberals. Like these people are by in large considered conservative by conservatives. I know you guys like to say the networks are liberals but most liberals find their shilling shameful. They jumped on the war bandwagon and gave everyone involved a free ride. Not liberal in my book. Combine the conservative hours in radio and tv and print, all pounding the same talking points and you have a near juggernaut of conservative media.

anon, by the way I have no desire to squelch freedom of the press. I love America and it's values as much as you do believe it or not. I just would like to bring about a little opposition to the conventional wisdom. You know, like Thomas Paine.

Robert Kennedy Jr. What a quack ! I still think the media is liberial based because the stories seem to rival the uneducated to make judgement, while most of the media stuff doesnt move my needle at all ! I learned a long time ago to take everything they say with a grain of salt. News is written by journalist or drama students -same thing. You guys really believe that stuff ! I bet u like soap operas too.

Seems to me the Left is always behind the argument -way behind. I read the derogative comments and they are copy cats of the buzz that went around previous to Bush's first candicy. The left has no leadership -just a bunch of followers , like the buffalo following each other of the edge.
