Skip to comments.I Am An Idiot Freeper and I Believe the Media Lies
Posted on 10/12/2008 8:07:27 AM PDT by jveritas
It is very sad the number of people on this forum who fell for the lies of the liberal media and consider it as the golden truth. They believe their biased polls, they believe all the fabricated doom and gloom scenarios that the media unleash each minute, they now believe the lies that McCain is fighting with Palin over the style of campaigning, they believe that is all over and we cannot win.
Yet those are the same people who make fun for what they like to call sheeple and say that they are controlled by the media but in reality they are worse than any sheeple because they fall for all the lies and fabrication that the media spew constantly.
They are the one who lecture Republicans to get a spine or balls or whatever macho word they like to use in each comment they post but yet they have already surrendered and declared all is lost and we cannot win.
For the vast majority of us Freepers we are going to fight and we are going to win and will never believe the lies and fabrications of the media.
I never argue with a man who knows himself..
I’m with you! The media is doing it’s best right now to demoralize us, I’m not falling for it. Now’s the time to fight with everything we’ve got.
Agree with you 100%. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over. We will fight and the pessimists should get on the train or out of the way.
I’m with you on this.
Of course, I don’t watch television and read newspapers, so I cannot allow them to sway me with their negativism.
If you watch and read that stuff (If I read the Boston Fishwrap, then turned on the talking heads this morning) it has little relation to reality, and will certainly demoralize you, which is exactly what they want.
I will not play their game, but many are.
When ever I find myself with a defeatist attitude, I go to the cemetery and replace the flags on my father’s and grandfather’s graves.
I suggest the same for others.
Some people don’t realize that the PURPOSE of the MSM is exactly to demoralize McCain voters, making “Obama is inevitable” a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The problem isn’t that freepers believe the media lies. We know that they are full of crap. The problem is that people who don’t follow political issues very closely, namely the great majority of undecided voters who will decide this election, get all of their news from the liars.
We’re rolling out the big guns the last 3 weeks.
One poll has Obama up 8 over McCain in West Virginia. NO WAY!!!!
The media is absolutely desperate!
Think about it. If Obama loses they lose.
If this were in a round of "Texas Hold'em", they'd be "all in". They came out of their closet and are supporting him openly.
If he loses, it will point out the fact that the media no longer has any clout, and their egos just could not stand the thought of that.
Short answer? The published polls ain’t worth a damn.
Thank you, sir. The media’s goal is to make it ‘appear’ this is inevitable. The polls are probably in O’s favor at this moment, but not by a lot. Those that moved in his direction did so only due to the economic crisis. With 20+ days left, a lot can happen. The more likely an Obama win, the more focus on what he actually WILL do.
Problem is, the medis is engaging in the tactic of ignoring. When they went proactive a la’ Dan Rather, we were able to get them. It’s hard to fight the silent tactic. We will keep on though.
I have grown to really like the term talking heads for TV news. I rarely see a newspaper because I don’t have any birds. The Right radio stations and internet do we well.
This happens every election season, j. Hang in there, it’s just a few nervous Nellies (OK - maybe more than a few...).
They have parroted the socialist/communist line and realize if they change horses now, Obama people will scream racism at the MSM.
However I blame the MSM for setting up this country for some rough times in regards to race! They are inciting many people for no good reason.
