Media "manipulation" of events?
« on: September 19, 2012, 01:05:56 PM »
I recall a James Bond movie (it may have been Tomorrow Never Dies), where a media mogul was trying to spark a war with China.

With that in mind, does it almost seem like the media has a "stash" of stories to cover whenever something blows up in the administration's face? For example, the Romney video, which was filmed in May, if I'm not mistaken, just now gets released, while questions are being raised about the attacks on our embassies and the administration's story is being questioned, even by the Libyan government?

Am I reading too much into this?  :unsure:

I think not. Remember the "journolists" scandal? More recently, a candid audio recording of reporters coaching each other to make sure the right talking points would be raised before a Romney interview?

The only reason Dear Leader is even near 50% in the polls is the fact that the MSM adore him, and have prostrated themselves in his cause, literally sacrificing the last flimsy vestiges of their credibility in the process. Polls show that only the press has a lower approval rating than Congress.

Nope. There doesn't remain any question, (in my mind), that the media has an agenda that leans heavily to the left. One has to wonder what they will say when all of their wishes come true....................and the country is a shattered mess.

They will continue too look for escape goats to blame for the situation they created. Just as Hitler, Mugabe, Mao, Lenin/Stalin and all the other tyrants have throughout history have done. It doesnt matter as long as they have the perpetual oligarchy.

You know, not that I'm on the side of Hitler or I'll justify his actions, but unlike our Glorious Leader Hitler actually improved his nation's economy. . . or at least he did until they started losing the war.
