The Media Wing of the Democrat Party is taken down by one little lady with a belly full of fire for America You Go Sarah. One person more then anyone else in my lifetime sans President Ronald Reagan has been abused and belittled by what most Americans would call the “mainstream” media and what I call the Media Wing of the Democrat Party. I believe that a majority of Americans now recognize who and what the media is comprised of and that is liberals. They donate almost exclusively to the Democrat Party and their reporting should be included in Democrats financial reports for their campaigns. The beauty of America 2011 is the internet, which is now where a majority of Americans get the truth which used to be called the news.
Iâ€™ve given this a lot of thought, and Iâ€™d like to share my thoughts on the never-ending issue of media bias.
When it comes to responding to the media, the standard warning is: Donâ€™t pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel because calling out the media and holding them accountable is a risky endeavor. Too often the first instinct is to ignore blatant media bias, crudeness, and outright lies, and just hope the media instigator will grow up and provide fairer coverage if you bite your tongue and not challenge the false reporting of an openly hostile press. But Iâ€™ve never bought into that. Thatâ€™s waving the white flag. I just canâ€™t do it because I have too much respect for the importance of a free press as a cornerstone of our democracy, and I have great respect for the men and women in uniform who sacrifice so much to defend that First Amendment right. Media, with freedom comes responsibility.
Friends, too often conservatives or Republicans in general come across as having the fighting instinct of sheep. I donâ€™t. I was raised to believe that you donâ€™t retreat when youâ€™re on solid ground; so even though it often seems like Iâ€™m armed with just a few stones and a sling against a media giant, Iâ€™ll use those small resources to do what I can to set the record straight. The truth is always worth fighting for. Doing so isnâ€™t whining or â€œplaying the victim cardâ€; itâ€™s defending the truth in fairness to those who seek accurate information. Iâ€™ll keep attempting to correct misinformation and falsehoods about myself and my record, and I will certainly never shy from defending others who are unfairly attacked. This is in the name of justice.
But two decades in politics have taught me that when it comes to picking battles, often itâ€™s best to ignore the truly petty, ugly personal media shots because engaging in a counter argument with disreputable, intolerant people doesnâ€™t vindicate me; it merely gives those people the attention they seek. It wastes my time and it distracts from what we should focus on.
What could I possibly add to what she has so eloquently written? I will add that is has been a nightmare to watch what has been done to Ms Palin by both the “lamestream” media and the RINO media who is desperate to keep her from keeping their man Mitt out of the White House. I will guarantee you that the 2012 primaries on the Republican side of the house is going to be brutal because I for one am not going to have a RINO shoved down my throat ala 2008!
