“Mainstream” Media

I quit watching the news on TV(except for CNBC, which I grudgingly watch at work for info on the markets). I feel like I’m saving so much time and actually getting information that’s not slanted. I now get all my news from the internet. It’s more efficient and less fluffy. I have maybe around 15 websites that I check daily and can get both sides of an issue. I can think about it and decide for myself what I believe. I have become very disenchanted with the media the last few years and it’s come to a head the last few months as I become more and more aware of issues that the “mainstream” media is mysteriously silent about.

Here are the most recent and most blatant the last month:

Complete misrepresentation of the 9/12 march

Van Jones & crew of Constitution-hating czars & Marxist-thinking Obama advisors

“Breaking News” twice-a-day w/ the same canned Obama health care propaganda, just in a different city

Since when do we continue to place our trust in anyone who over and over demonstrates they are biased and act only in their self-interest?

And isn’t a state-run media a staple of socialism? That’s exactly what we have here, folks…. unless you ask Obama, who has as an advisor Jeff Immelt, who runs GE (which coincidentally greatly benefits from the bailout and health care reform), which owns NBC, which in in league with the devil.

Follow that? Socialism = Satan -> NBC -> GE -> Jeff Immelt -> Obama

From now on, the “mainstream media” is my contrary indicator. Pretty much, if they’re reporting it, it’s not worth my time (and most likely I am already aware of it). If they make a big deal of it, I need to ask myself  ‘why?’ and look into their motivations. And if they ignore of downplay a story, I should perk up and really start digging into it, because they’re hiding something.

Media, you are a disgrace and I would dare say un-American.

Politician logic

Howard Dean

Oh Howard, you say the craziest things….. But we just ignore it, kinda like Barack Obama ignores his crazy uncle Jeremiah Wright.

Quotes I wrote down from Howard Dean, the DNC chairman and former crazy presidential candidate, today while I was watching CNBC at work today:

“The private sector by nature is more inefficient than the public sector.”

“I believe individuals should be able to choose their health insurance, which means there has to be a public option.”

“Please, HELP!! Can’t you see I’m being blackmailed. (He mouths ‘Nancy Pelosi’ and ‘Harry Reid’) Why else would I say things that are clearly illogical. Please help me!” Then some guys wearing GE shirts ran onto the set and the camera cut away.

You and Joe Biden just crack me up with all those funny jokes you’re always making! You should go on tour together! With Seinfeld! You could do a show about nothing.

Ohhhhhh, wait just a second… my 6-year-old just informed me that today is opposite day. Howard, you’re so crafty! How did you know?

That GE incident was a little weird… buuuuuut, I’ve seen weirder. Today even! Rep Olympia Snowe, R – Maine, one of the gang of 6 Senators, said today that she thinks Obama is NOT a big govt liberal, but a moderate. WTH! I can’t even imagine what kind of dirt they’ve got on her. Maybe they have proof that she wants to starve small children. She is a Republican you know.
