The Media Is The Meme
It’s bewildering but not surprising to watch the Professional Left eat themselves up after the mid-term non-Tsunami (media meme FAIL) that nevertheless led to more teeth and keyboard gnashing from the usual suspects like The Daily Kos, Huffington Post, etc. So called liberals and progressives now attack President Obama as a “pussy” “weak” “spineless” or in Michael Moore’s sad case, accusing him of wearing a “pink tutu” on Bill Maher — because he’s like TOTALLY GAY, get it? The problem is a non-stop chattering class of TV and blogosphere pundits who have to find an Outrage Du Jour to drum up necessary hits or ratings. Arianna Huffington has proven to be the most irresponsible of the new “left” media, the former Republican and yachting buddy of Newt Gingrich, who makes sure that the HP always has a daily false or misleading headline to spread the fear and paranoia and OUTRAGE over things that have not yet happened or never will. Her newest pet, Howard “Hack” Fineman, spun off the latest FluffPo Fantasy with the news that Michael Bloomberg and Joe Scarborough were considering a 2012 presidential run. Even after Scarborough vociferously denied this, the big brains at Kos and elsewhere think this was a “trial balloon” to test the reaction. As if anybody cares what Markos Moulitas thinks about their chances. And the new gullible sheep of the left, who crave their own FOX brainwashing apparently, simply say, “Oh, sure he denied it, but I bet it’s still true!” Why? Because they READ it on The Huffington Post. And then Daily Kos repeats. Spin. Wash. Repeat. And the cannibalistic dwellers of the left will march lockstep to eat their own arms off to spite their keyboards. Ever since Bill Clinton signed the 1996 Telecommunications Act – effectively severing the public airwaves from their original purpose and owners (that would be “We The People”) — our media has been taken over by a thousand Lonesome Rhodes, left and right, who simply create a lie and watch as others run with the meme. I’ve never seen the populace so collectively polarized or stupid, and there is no actual NEWS anymore — even Keith Olbermann straight up cried out against “Worshipping before the false god of utter objectivity” in a bizarro rant that I guess means we need more blowhards like him to guide us into the truth. No thanks, Keith. I’ll take the BBC over the MSNBC, two anchors sitting at a desk in front of green screen from 1974 and simply going over the stories of the day instead of the ADD spinning cams and hieroglyphic chyrons that clog up the screen these scoundrel days. The Media controls the flow of information and we are being subjugated by their false corporatist agenda. But Americans have within their reach more unfettered access to genuine information than at any other time in history — and the nation does not seem to be the smarter for this. Good Night and Good Luck.
