Our job this election season (which is now until November 2012), is to stay on the media wing of the Democrat Party’s tail. It is up to us, We The People, to leave a comment on their sites – questioning their lies, tweeting them out, Facebooking the lies, so that more and more Americans can be informed and “keep them honest.” The Democrats will tear to bits any one of the candidates we put up, they will deceive and outright lie, expecting, as has always been the case, that they are bigger then we. I want us to prove that we indeed are far more formidable than they are. More and more Americans are recognizing that the so called “mainstream” media are filled to the brim with liberal ideologues. The Leftist media has controlled the message for the better part of our lives – it’s time to end their propaganda campaign against conservative Americans, who, by the way, are the majority of Americans We The People Are The Media, See Something, Say Something
I was a liberal until about 1991, and what a shocker it was to discover that the very same media I had no problems with prior to seeing the light was now filled with lies, propaganda, half-truths, and any number of parlor tricks intentionally set up to destroy our side. Unless you lived through it, you can’t imagine how frustrating it was to sit through the ‘92 election unable to do anything about the corrupt MSM’s partisan crusade to elect Bill Clinton.
Keep in mind that this was before the Internet, before email, before Andrew Breitbart, before Twitter, before Fox News, and before talk radio was the force that it is today. At the time, the only person going on television and aggressively exposing this injustice and saying the things I wanted to say was one of my few living heroes, The Mighty Brent Bozell.
The good news is that it’s not 1992 anymore and you no longer have to sit around frustrated waiting for someone else to speak for you. Best of all, you also aren’t in a position where you have to put all the effort into composing a letter of complaint hoping some newspaper will print it.
If you want to do something about media bias — which is doing something for America — use the Internet. Also…
1. We have a virtual tip-line. If you see bias, report it. We can’t get to everything, but we do read everything.
2. We cannot watch everything, so pick a beat on our behalf. Who wants to help us keep an eye on all the insidiously bias moves made at Politico, the New York Times, CBS, CNN, and all the rest? Focus on something like the “NBC Nightly News,” Wolf Blitzer’s CNN shift , or the Los Angeles Times — something specific — and become our eyes and ears.
3. Keep an eye on your local news outlets. Many are just as biased and corrupt as their national counterparts and deserve to be held up to exposure. Especially in swing states and in hotly contested congressional districts, these outlets are no less important than the Washington Post.
4. On your own, you can do many things. If the story is online, leave a comment exposing the bias. Email the writer directly. Tweet the writer. Be polite, be firm, be relentless.
The left might have #OccupyWallStreet, however, the rest of America, the majority of America, just want the truth so they can make up their own minds.
