LIARS UNWELCOME: Politicians, Media Can’t Fool Us Twice
We don’t believe the main stream media and we don’t believe President Obama. That is what a recent poll tells us. It turns out the two decisions are related. The American people don’t like liars. Today the media can pick and choose the Obama scandals they want to ignore. There are no shortage of scandals from which to choose. You know it and I know it.
Eight years ago, the MSM reported every time President Bush’s poll numbers went down. One network would even report on the poll results from another network if the poll showed that we didn’t like a republican president. Today, President Obama’s approval rating have fallen so low they match President Bush’s ratings during the Iraq war. This time is different. Now the networks won’t report the polls showing our disapproval of Obama even if the polls were generated by the network, let alone report on the unfavorable polls from other media sources.
Today the media picks and chooses the stories they want to report. The major networks only mentioned our growing disapproval of Obama 9 times, while they mentioned our disapproval of Bush 124 times over a comparable period before the election eight years ago. You can’t excuse the difference by calling the media slanted in their reporting. This isn’t even media bias given the ratio of 14 to one. This discrepancy shows media propaganda designed to improve the performance of the struggling democrat party in the upcoming election. The media will lie to us to get the results they want. That much is clear. There is a backlash from the public.
That blatant propaganda explains the poll numbers showing we don’t trust the news media and here. To my fellow Americans, I say “good for you”. You’ve listened to enough diverse sources of information to figure out when you’re being told a lie. We don’t like lies. We don’t like lies from Washington politicians. We don’t like lies from New York or Los Angeles newsrooms either.
