Every single day, the bias reporting and Liberal “slant” of mainstream media (ie: CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, ABC as well as the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Associated Press … and on and on) is upfront and apparent for any and all to witness, if they care to be honest.
The bias has become so obtuse that it has elevated to that of a running joke, from both sides of the issue. Liberal “news” sources are no longer providing “news”, they are pushing “propaganda”. They have become the “Public Outreach” arm of the Obama administration. If it were not for Fox News and the Internet, we (the people) would have no reporting of “fact” at all. They know it; we know it; they know that we know; and we know that they know. Yet everyone pretends to be shocked and appalled at accusations. Hypocrisy abounds both sides. If I only had a dime for every time that I have heard, “I didn’t hear you speaking out when … (insert Obama, Bush, Clinton or Reagan) … was in office?” in the last 2 years from “news” sources. It’s like cannon fire from one side to the other.
So why do we even bother to debate it anymore? Sure, it’s always fun to point out bias and hypocrisy, and maybe it gives us a certain personal satisfaction as it reaffirms that our views are righteous. But does debating it serve any other useful purpose?
The line between Liberalism & Conservatism is already drawn and I believe that if there is anyone out there who hasn’t already chosen to be with us (Conservatives) then they never will be. All this talk about “gaining the support of independent voters” is bullshit. Frankly, anyone who may still be “wishy-washy” on where they stand, politically, is either a liar (intent on skewing the polling numbers) or they are so fucking ignorant that they don’t deserve to be part of the Conservative Coalition anyway. With those types, we can only hope that they are so caught up in the latest episode of “Who’s screwing the Kardashians?”, that they forget to vote.
I suspect that people already know where they stand, politically. But knowing where one stands does not always correlate with “Action”. The real reason that the Tea Party movement is so significant is that these are people who have always had conservative views, but have never “acted” upon those views by attending protest rallies and demonstrations. We are the silent majority. Instilled with deep values like God, Country & Family. (Concepts that Liberals cannot comprehend) Like a bull, we are slow to stir. We tolerate a certain level of annoyance in the same way that we accept that ALL politicians are Liars and slime-bags. We are content to live our lives undisturbed and without nosing into the business of other people. But also like a bull, if you push us too far, we will eventually stomp all over your ass.
I believe that it is time that we stop arguing over “whether or not” the mainstream media is bias. It is time that we start treating media bias as “fact”. We must treat these so called “news sources” as “opinions”, because that is what they really are. Reporters from the mainstream media can no longer be taken seriously. We must treat them in the same way that we treat reporters from “The National Enquirer” or “The Globe”; with snickers and irrelevance. Personally, I can’t wait to see a picture of Al Gore riding the Lock-Ness monster on the cover of “The National Enquirer”.
Yet, exposing the media bias when it occurs does have some merit, in my opinion. While it won’t surprise anyone, or convince those who agree with Liberal Freaks to join our cause, exposing it may serve to energize and actionize our own base. It may also be useful as a form of reinforcement, to keep the fires burning. So long as we are careful to not engage in a debate over “who’s more bias” as opposed to “examples of bias”. We don’t want to allow Liberal Freaks the opportunity to change the subject.
So from this point forward, I invite you to join me in the assumption that the Main Stream Media is already bias in any reporting that they provide. I know, you already knew all this. We all did. But it’s time that we acknowledge it and codify it at a single place and time. So that we can, at some future date, look back and find a marker of when the people took charge to protect truth and justice.
