At least they stopped pretending to be unbiased…

Posted in Uncategorized on June 16, 2011 by AlanABQ

CNN’s non-biased take on the debates they hosted for the GOP hopefuls:

And the “updated, less offensive” one:

And so the typical weasel-words & cheap shots about the relative IQ of conservatives rear their ugly heads. Here’s what you can expect in the next year & a half:
Numerous one-sided discussions about whether or not the Republican candidate is “the sharpest knife in the drawer” (here’s the invariable answer: he or she won’t be).

Inexplicably thorough examinations of the candidates past & suspected (as in “made up”) indiscretions, followed by accusations of a cover up when no proof is ever found. Unless the candidate in question is a Dem, but that’s a moot point because the Dem’s guy won’t get any more than the slightest cursory background check.

Religious Right/VRWC sightings.

Any misstatements by the Republican candidates will be cited as proof of incompetence and endlessly recycled in the media, while any misstatement by the Dem’s candidate will alternately be blacked out, ignored, explained away or falsely attributed to the Republican.

In addition to “wingnut” & “goofy” where the Republican’s beliefs & policies are concerned, a marked increase in weasel words/phrases like “jingoistic”, “ultra-Right-Wing”, “arch-conservative”, “Neo-Con”, “bible thumper”, “agenda”, “tax reform scheme” and “inexplicable”, to name only a few…and that’s when they’re attempting to appear unbiased.

And an endless stream of disdainful rhetoric aimed at the Rep’s candidate & his/her party, disingenuously being passed off as disinterested journalism. Editorials & articles that are little more than thinly-veiled hate speeches. Newscasts that are clear in their disapproval of anything slightly conservative.
All this coupled with endless praise & admiration for whomever the Democrat du jour is.

…and this is just the SHORT list.

Steven Crowder exposes John Stewart’s duplicity

Posted in Uncategorized on June 15, 2011 by AlanABQ

This duplicity is nothing new. Most people seem to know or at least suspect that the media has been listing to the left since the 50′s. Bernie Goldberg laid it out in ‘Bias’ so well that no amount of denial or feigned outrage could obscure it any longer. And while Mr. Goldberg asserted that the leftist slant in the media is not the result of some dark conspiracy, Chapman Pincher made it plain in his book ‘Traitors’ that agents of influence have always used media personalities to steadily feed socialist & anti-American sentiments at every opportunity until it became so commonplace that it was just accepted as the norm. And then you wind up with people like Stewart, Colbert, Olbermann & so on who essentially become useful idiots to no one in particular.

Unfortunately for him, John Stewart is still under the impression that people don’t read books & simply get all their news from the news. It’s so obvious that he is the atypical media liberal; he really believes that he’s a moderate because that’s what he hears all the newscasters on the Big 3 networks claim whenever the issue of progressive bias comes up. Rather than come clean, they tenaciously hold to the fact that they’re decent, unbiased moderate people and, if anything, the media has a hard conservative slant to it (!).

Yes, they truly believe that. They don’t recognize the real bias because it’s just the way things are done; they don’t really know any conservative people and they can go most of their lives without interacting with them because they’re surrounded by people who are just like themselves.
In other words, anytime you see someone like Stewart proclaim how moderate he is, you can safely guess that they lean heavily to the left; it’s the hallmark of subtle influence: make leftist ideals so prevalent in everyday actions & statements that it becomes the norm. Then only people like Ayers & Garofalo are seen as far left while anyone to the right of Joe Lieberman is viewed (and summarily dismissed) as a Right Wing militia lunatic.
