Conservative Refocus: Lies The Media Has Told You
June 24th, 2012
By Barry Secrest
As a Conservative, you know things have gotten excruciatingly bad when you find yourself rolling your eyes while simultaneously in the act of opening up your local Sunday paper for the most entertainingly slanted segment of the day. Yet this is, approximately, where we are as a nation today, or at least at this period in our history, and not just on Sundays.
In fact, when we look back on the Bush years, it was the media apparatchiks who were questioning virtually every Presidential decision, reporting every verbal flub, publishing baboon and monkey photos with Bush's face, even often manufacturing stories concerning the former President's life in a transparently heroic effort to "hold power to account." So, what exactly happened to those people, anyway, or better, where did they disappear to? Now, we have nothing if not an hysterical mass of propaganda-spouting cheerleaders leaping around on the sidelines, mostly speaking to an affectionate fealty for Obama and the Leftists in charge in cheer after cheer.
The question then naturally becomes: Can this national media failure be altered back to a more centered political media vision at some point?
The answer to this question can only be "perhaps," but it will take a burgeoning societal disenchantment with the status quo mainstream media, plus continued growth among center-Right broadcasters and outlets, and, of course, continually declining revenue streams for certain hard-Leftist instruments such as the NY Times, in order to effect "Change that America can begin to believe in," especially regarding the Fourth Estate.
We can see this particular issue driven home, over and over again, on any given day, be it on network news, most news magazines, and certainly on shows such as fellow Left-Winging North Carolinian, Charlie Rose's show, where he recently asked what could only be considered an hysterically slanted question on his show, which is largely dedicated to Elitist, Left-wing personalities.
In Rose's interview with John Heilimann, who is an MSNBC analyst, author, and an editor for New York Magazine, Rose actually asks this ridiculously Obamaphobic question:
Charlie Rose: "On the Republican side, what is it about the President that seems to make them so passionate to defeat him?"
John Heilimann: "Man, you know Charlie, I prefer two false questions and that's kinda like a PHD dissertation style question. You know there is a, uh, there is a, um, part of the Republican Party, the Conservative, far Conservative aspect of it that , you know, who have hated the President, with a really raw intensity since the day he walked into office. And, you know, people have a lot of theories about it.
"You know, some people put race in that category as part of a motivating factor for some number of Republican voters. Certainly the "Birther thing", seems to be at least to me, partly driven due to racial animus."
"You know, this notion of Obama as a Socialist, um, that he is a Chicago school, Saul Alinksy. There's all these associations that a lot of the Right have with various kinds of Left-Wing bogies"
Really, John? As if the entire Left, to include the Axis Press, was not passionately motivated to defeat George Bush and the Republicans during the prior two terms with a verifiably raw intensity? Indeed, while the question from Charlie, itself, was beyond imbecilic at best, Heilimann's answer defies any sort of truly quantifiable logic.
Fact is, Obama's Saul Alinksy ties and work as a Community Organizer are very well known and inordinately publicized, but largely outside of the mainstream media circles, it should be noted. In addition, Obama's disdain of Capitalism, proft and business in general, are legendarily scripted with a bread crumb trail of quotes, economic indicators, and even repeated charges by Obama and his Marxist helpers, all the way down the Obama timeline.
Lie #1) America's faulty Heathcare system mandated the need for Obamacare
In a world that has, in large part, been dedicated to socialized medicine, there was one medical system that had always been head and shoulders above the rest. One of the few remaining private systems in the world, the United States' private healthcare system had been repeatedly lauded, the world over, as being cutting edge in both technology and quality of doctors.
But that was before....
