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:

You have to believe the things coming out of your mouth.
You don’t waiver on core principles.
You get others to want to have the same core principles, by using great, accurate, and a little funny examples, for a little levity and to remember.
Maggie thatcher - socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money.
Don’t accept the premise of questions tossed at you.
Don’t say stupid stuff, off the cuff. If off guard, smile and wave like Reagan. Or totally ignore it until there’s a question you are ready for.
Quite honestly, Democrats are not our biggest enemy.
The liberal media is the enemy.
And I am not talking about MSNBC. Less than a million people watch MSNBC. They are small potatoes.
I am talking about all the major newspapers, other cable news, and the networks.
And on top of that, we have the entertainment industry and media to contend with.
I don’t know if people noticed, but Obama was plastered all over the entertainment media, reaching out to the those dopey uneducated, low information female voters who decide elections in this country nowadays.
Even supposedly non-political entities were shills for 0bama. There has been a Habitat for Humanity ad running for weeks on conservative radio here where they use the phrase “Hope and Change.” I am quite sure that phrasing was intended to be a subtle reminder of 0bama.
Then conservatives should stop wasting their time with the Democrat politicians and start picketing and sit-ins where the real power behind them is - media, entertainment and academia. If these media/academic people want to be political operators, fine. Just don’t let them keep hiding behind the “objectivity” mask, call them directly on their BS and make it clear that if they are doing political work, they need to assume all the liabilities and risks that go with being political players. If that means literally marching on news/media outlets and “educational” institutions and union HQ’s, so be it.
