All The News That's Fit To............
« on: February 14, 2012, 10:11:14 AM »
   Here's a story from The Daily Caller (Tucker Carlson, et al) on how the George Soros funded Media Matters, led by left wing loon David Brock, helps the White House manipulate the U.S. Main Stream Media. Some of Media Matters' allies include The Daily Kos, the Huffington Post, and MSNBC. There is even a story on Media Matters wanting to hire private detectives to check into the personal lives of Fox News reporters and executives.

LOL, Larry. Let's channel CT before he starts furiously CC&Ping from the crackpotosphere:

As if!

Pure-d-Tpublicon nonsense.

Koch Bros. conspiracy!

The ubers and the filthys striking back.


LRTFOL! Not that this should be news to anyone. The JournoList never left, it just moved front and center to Media Matters. It's still an echo chamber where memes start and spread through the MSM and where they get their marching orders.

We've known for a long time that Media Matters is a Soros funded group that programs MSMBC and dictates what much of the left wing media presents as news.  What was unknown was the close connection the group has with the White House.  It takes us back to the Nixon years and Watergate, and to the time when an enemies list existed.  And yes, Meddia Matters is a Super Pac fundraising front for Obama.

Obviously if a Republican was in Office and a similar group behaved in a similar fashion it would be huge news.  MSM would be all over the story.
Progressives have never seen a tax they don't like, a tax they don't want to increase or a new tax they want enacted.  The only requirement that the tax be levied on someone else, not them.

The hypocrisy of the left-wing MSM knows no bounds.  Remember when VP Chaney invited Haliburton to join the discussion on formation of an energy policy?  Remember the uproar that created in the press.  Story after negative story in print and over the airways.

Fast advance to this story:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/venture-capitalists-play-key-role-in-obamas-energy-department/2011/12/30/gIQA05raER_story.html?tid=pm_pop

Other than this one article in the Washington Post, no additional coverage, no MSM uproar, yet this is far more troubling  than Cheney and Haliburton.  Taxpayer money actually went out the door as a payback to Obama supporters.

There's never been a situation in the past that the press has been so supportive and protective of an administration as what we see today.  Never before have we seen supposedly reputable news organization spinning every story to the advantage of an administration.

LMAO, CT. LRTFOL! That is rich coming from you. You, who takes as gospel and regurgitates religiously anything and everything from the kooks in the crackpotosphere and its cable TV counterparts like Current TV and MSDNC. LMMFAO, brother! C'mon, CT. You can do it. Be honest with yourself at least. You know damned well Brock is Soros's paid stooge. Ditto Moulitsas. And Matthews, Maddow, Olbermann, Robinson, Klein, Krugman and company? They are all like you, just more highly paid useful idiots parroting the party line.

LMAO.  The bow tie man has been reduced
to commenting from a blog named after an
political adversary.
Reduced to the brink of irrelevancy, Tucker
now makes $h!t up in hopes his old buds on
the Cable News Nets will invite him on to
discuss and propagate the horse$h!t.
George Soros funds Media Matters!!"

That's no more a story than this...

The KochBros fund virtually everything Teapub.
What they don't fund, ALEC does.
And, what they don't fund some wingnut Billionaire
funds.
Murdoch rings a bell.

Guess what??

There are more wingnut Billionaires funding
all this wingnut happy horse$h!t than there
are lunkhead Billionaires like Soros funding
lunkhead happy horse$h!t.

Like 3:1, 4:1, maybe 10:1.

So, wah.

And, yeah, most of the crap you post on
your blog is horse$h!t.  Totally made up.
Prolly why you have been reduced to
blogging.
And, why we counter that you're full of $h!t.

Nice try, CT. The DC is kickin' ass and takin' names. Carlson has more credibility now than he's ever had or ever would have had toiling in the vinyards of the left wing's media wing. Back in the day, when the media did what the media is supposed to do, they would have been all over something like this. Now, they can't hardly -- and wouldn't dream of -- biting the hand that feeds them. Moulitsas -- aka the dailykook -- can only dream of doing what Carlson's "blog" is doing. He neither has nor would he ever dare speak truth to power. For the power that feeds him is the power behind the ruination of this nation.

And, yeah, most of the crap you post on your blog is horse$h!t, Kos and Arianna. Totally made up.

Fixed that for you. YW.

You will have to refresh my memory on those comparisons.

Wasn’t there something with Haliburton, where the advice they gave on energy policy, was not just possibly self serving, but also secret? And the administration won in court to keep it secret. (Because Cheney was not part of the cabinet or something like that?) And so Rambo, being the douche bag that he is, made a move to try to de-fund Cheny’s office. And Obama, being the retard he is, decided that a controversial douche bag like Rambo would be a good fit for his cabinet and set the tone for his era of bipartisanship, that has made the country the most divided since the civil war? And at the same time made Obama’s presidency harder for his agenda than any other president has faced since the civil war. Gee those smart Harvard guys sure are smart, huh? Just think of how much damage Obama could have done to our country if he had the common sense to pressure Nancy out as speaker and not bring on Rambo, Eric Holder and Van Jones. If he merely possessed the intelligence of your average manipulative fifth grade girl and he would have pushed way more crap though by now and probably kept the house.

Also, the regurgitated defense for Haliburton and the no bid contracts was B-b-b-b-b-but Clinton did it for a few billion (way more than Solyndra) in Kosovo and Bosnia, therefore Bush can do it for 30 times that much in Iraq.

The Daily Caller upholds the finest traditions of journalism.  It's well written ,  features great research, has good layout and provides broad coverage.  While it leans center - right it's not  far-right.   It does great investigative reporting.  It is a throwback to newspapers of the past that features investigative reporting and and eschews the radicalism of some modern papers such as the New York Times.    Also, it does not rely on press handouts like many newspapers do today. 

Progressives have never seen a tax they don't like, a tax they don't want to increase or a new tax they want enacted.  The only requirement that the tax be levied on someone else, not them.

Right.  And Fox "News" is fair and balanced.

It must be fair and balanced as Fox is the most trusted source of news in the nation according to a recent poll.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/32039.html

US News and World Reports  Magazine identified Bill O'Reilly as the county's most trusted commentator.

Nor does it rely on marching orders issued by Media Matters like ABCNBCCBSCNNMSDNCNYTIMES ET AL.

Right. Now you're getting it, CT. Er, wait...what? Oh, you were being sarcastic! LMAO. Still beating that silly drum? One can see where you might get it confused with your sources. Fox's commentators tend to lean center right, but their news presentation is nothing but fair and balanced. Whereas MSDNC and the other left wing loons you rely on, who -- with a straight face, no less -- beat that same silly drum when they themselves have no line of demarcation between commentary and their versions of "news." Their commentators and their --ahem! -- "reporters" sing from the same sour sheet music written and delivered by MM directly or filtered through the DNC or the west wing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Nice try, though. Hang in there, brother.

Anyone want to bet MSM covers the rising price of gasoline much different this year than what they did in 2008?  You won't see many negative stories around this time around, as contrasted to 2008.  Here's a link to a group that has made a comparison:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/julia-seymour/2011/03/01/networks-link-bush-skyrocketing-gas-prices-15-times-more-obama

This time around MSM will attempt to spin it in an attempt to deflect any blame that might be attached to the current administration.  The good thing is the public no longer trusts or respects MSM.

Regardless if they cover it - people will notice the difference at the pump.  I think Obo will "stage" a "I feel their pain - but it won't really impact the market" release from the strategic reserve again this summer to boost his favorability rating for the election.   ::)
