Fox News ^ | Wednesday, November 7, 2012 | Rich Noyes

Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America's top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat.

Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

How did that helicopter get off the ground?

I am disappointed with Brit Hume. He gives much credit to Obama/A$$elrod. MSM is responsible for the Obama win. Shame on Hume for not recognizing that.

Yep. But until conservatives stealthily take over ‘mainstream’ media complaining about bias is peeing in the proverbial wind. We need to purge the ‘gatekeepers.’

I just ordered 1,000 rounds of ammo, a flak jacket with plate, and enough food for two years. As of this election I’ve been made a prepper. The prophetic Turner Diaries have become a reality.

WHile the Media’s left-wing, progressive, even Communistic bent is a given, and they will do everything they can to cheat for their candidate, this is a given, it will not change.

The real problem are candidates like Mitt Romney and John McCain, who are at best, Pretend Republicans.

Until the GOP is constrained or forced, by us, to put up conservative candidates for President, they will continue to lose the most important elections of our History.

You don’t put up a GOP candidate, who supports both Abortion and the Gay Agenda, and expect to win.

Those are left-wing issue positions, not the issue positions of Republicans.

I agree: take ‘em over by stealth. Also buy them out and create new channels, both broadcast and online.

We need to build our own propaganda machine and use it as ruthlessly as they do. No holds bared, without pity.

I am done with FOX. Everyone laughed at good ol Glenn Beck the clown when he was on that network. Yet he is the only one who took the time to connect all the dots and did anyone listen ( besides us) no. So here we are....I’ll listen to Rush and Glenn tomorrow...and sign up for the ladies gun class if there are still openings...it has been a long time since I FAM fired..and get a permit for some kind of firearm...there have been break ins in our area lately, and see about that..could be tricky with an Alzheimer’s spouse in the house...

At 9:45 pst I furled my flag..hubby had gone to bed...I told him I was going to take it down if 0bama was reelected. I am sure he will notice and poo poo my feelings but I refuse to fly the flag for which I served 30 years one more day. I may fly it updside down....or get a skull and cross bones or the Marine Corps flag....but not Old Glory until we are once again a Glorious nation..I don’t recognize this one...
Oh and I pulled out my trust..and family members who voted for this obscene outcome are going to be written out..They are not going to get what wealth I do have.

I am a registered republican but this year I did not donate one cent to them....and from now on, I will be more Tea Party oriented...
With the likes of progressive republicans we can expect no other outcome..they are socialists in sheep skin....at least the RATS are more open about it. Time to expose the GOP progressives and label them what they are.

“I may fly it updside down”

Good idea. Or half mast. You will get some queries.

We cut our liberal kids out a while back. What money we have will go to the Humane Society. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when they couldn’t open their mouths without saying “Sarah Palin is stupid.” (I hope they read this. hee hee)

I heard that some of the voting machines may have tipped the scales.

I am so sorry . Just waking up in France .

I think that Republicans and conservatives should know the Media bias since a long time .

I see roughly 2 main problems for the free, sane part, anti-liberal of USA:
1/The “nice guys” refusing to tell things like they are , and particularly the media bias , and hence refusing to really fight opponents who ARE NOT “NICE GUYS”.
Precisely the “nice guys” refuse to call the media bias as it is , as if it was normal .

2/The principled religious right going on repeating the same principles without considering peoples , women and younger generations for example , and the state of the society.
The fact is that people are under a huge liberal propaganda by media , schools , music , cinema... Christians ,that i am , must hold firmly both sides, principles and people’s care.

Probably Newt Gingrich or someone else should have done better ....

I have only one question for you and all the "third box" contingent:

Will you be paying your taxes as usual?

Yes. You will. You can file a return without ammo and a flak jacket...but if it makes you feel better, hey.

Funny you should ask. My wife and I were discussing this just a half hour ago. Costa Rica, or the Cayman Island came up.
Personally I believe that America will be in chaos after January. Americans just voted themselves into oblivion by electing this charlatan again.
