-JournoList Revealed! Inside the Secret Liberal Media Email Cabal-

Liberals deciding what news to consider and release, all by themselves. Say it ain’t so. That is so Pravda-like, right?

“Secret Liberal Media Email Cabal”

They probably even have a little secret hand signal. My guess is a fist raised high in the air saluting Che Guevara.

One track teleprompter dude:

Somewhere in one of your many screeds yesterday you went on about this blog being about politics and thus justifying your nonillion posts on the same topics.

Perhaps our host will be kind enough to put up a thread for political discussion, and you can post to your heart's content there, and those of us not interested can avoid it. That's how it's normally done...not hijacking every thread for the same off-topic rants.

And if you're going to put up "facts", cite some sources.

Anon 7:49. I've come to the conclusion that this little troll is commenting before or after school and also on recess.

JournoList: Inside the echo chamber

I think you're right, 7:54. I heard his mom called, said "Red Dawn" is on, and something about rice krispy treats.

Why can’t posters here just let people write whatever opinions they have? Writing style and comma placement means little in quick comments. Childish comments on another posters opinions, is the real waste of time. Don’t try to dictate to others, it hasn’t been working well lately, it seems to me anyway. I have to laugh at jokers deciding who is the troll, and then the echo poster replies on key. We have been through this dozens of times. ALL information has its place, let each person decide what is newsy or funny. That is the concept of something for everyone.

_Obama ditches teleprompter for drive-in theater movie screen-

I don't get the teleprompter thing. Reagan used a teleprompter, Bush read from a paper notebook. What's the big deal?

What's the big deal?

The big deal is that Regan and Bush could at least complete a sentence without one. With Obama you get this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThEAO0lt4Dw&feature=related


You see, he's a kindred spirit to the Kennedy You Know clan.

The teleprompter hooha is completely Orwellian. Call "up" "down" long enough and the sheep will buy it. It's completely a Rovian tactic, attacking someone on their strong point.

Obama is an excellent speaker. Bush was not. So attack Obama on his speaking abilities. It makes no sense in non-bizarro, non-Fox news world, but apparently, it's all you've got.

Anonymous said...

Um-Er, Um-Er, did you say “Obama is an excellent speaker?” A few speeches ago he thanked himself, because that is what the teleprompter told him to say. The poor little machine overheated from a bullshit overload I guess. Doesn’t a speaker that does not even know what he is 'reading' bother you a little bit?

I learned how to source from the MSM. I should do better I know, but gee, I am as lazy as some so-called journos.

This is the funniest bit of propaganda these fools spout. The babbling idiot can't complete a sentence without a teleprompter.

"The babbling idiot can't complete a sentence without a teleprompter"

Really? What about the debates? What about many live appearances sans teleprompter, where he's faster on his feet than most of us are?

Do you really only have room in your mind for one idea at a time?

Houston Chronicle Buries Own Layoff Story

Un-er, un-er, sorry, I forgot about the softball debates. Only the in-the-tank media thought Barry won the debates.

Q - Do you prefer gold or pearl cufflinks?
A - That’s above my pay grade.

Bad times even hit a comic strip heroine.

-Gal reporter Brenda Starr faces downsizing-
Chicago Tribune, by Colleen Mastony

The newspaper business is tough all over. Things are so bad that even comic strip heroine Brenda Starr—that feisty gal reporter—will be put on furlough this week.

In a strip that runs Saturday, Starr's cigar-chomping boss, B. Babbitt Bottomline, calls Starr into his office and declares, "I can't afford to pay you anymore." The budget cuts inside Starr's fictional newsroom reflect the bottom line at real-life newspapers, which are slashing staffs..

Many years ago I taught at a college in North Dakota in the sociology department. One there was a huge headline in the Bismarck Tribune about a "study" that had been presented to the legislature touting the latest pay equity scam.

The article was after the fact of the legislative testimony and reported in detail on the "study". The person who allegedly wrote the report was a grad student at UND and so I dropped her a line asking for a copy of her study. This is commonplace in academic settings and yet I received nothing back from her. So I wrote again, and again, no response.

So I contacted the reporter to see if I could get a copy of his copy. Now keep in mind that this was page one, huge headline and many, many column inches devoted to the topic.

Turns out he didn't have a copy and when I pressed him a little farther he admitted that not only did he not have a copy of the study, he had never had a copy of the study, had never seen the study and in fact intimated to me that *he didn't think she ever would produce the study*.

He had taken every bit of the information completely on faith because it fit his agenda. His editors passed on it because it fit their agenda. The entire story was based on a "study" that didn't exist.

John -- I'm not surprised at all. That's one way leftist ideas get cemented in the culture. In your example, I'm sure the reporter thought he was doing a noble thing by advancing rights for women.

John Altevogt said...

I'm sure he did. Except, that wasn't his job. If he wanted to do that he should have gotten a job with NOW. Instead, he lied to his readers.
