Scarborough To Republicans: 'Stop Blaming The Media'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/08/2012 4:48:17 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough apparently thinks so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media."

Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan." But Scarborough suggested just the opposite: that the crowd had been chanting "Ryan!" and that Romney asked them to change to "Romney/Ryan."

Oh, hell...Ann Barnhardt expresses it much better,,,

If you do not now understand that the media is enemy number one of you, your family, this culture and of God; if you do not understand that the media is SATANIC, then you are either terminally stupid or you are hopelessly addicted to the satanic filth, agitporn and lies yourself. Pick up the phone, call the cable or satellite company and TURN THE SHIT OFF NOW. Oh, and by the way, I found out how much you are paying for each cable channel. It is roughly $0.12 per month per channel. I saw this figure in a recent story about Algore's Stalinist propaganda channel, Current TV, which they are now trying to sell. Current TV goes into 60 million homes and has annual revenues from their cable and satellite royalties of $86 million. That is $0.12 per subscriber per month. So, you are offering that "pinch of incense" of $0.12 per month (at minimum) for every channel that is included in your cable or satellite package, including the sodomite channel, including MTV, including MSNBC, whether you watch it or not, and even if you block it on your cable box. Your money is still going to these outfits every month, and in doing so you proclaim that "caesar is lord". St. Polycarp, pray for us.

So, the guy who makes $2000 an hour to link arms with his fellow “journalists” and make sure that NOBODY talks about Benghazi or the Hurricane Sandy fail before the election wnats us to “stop blaming the media”?

Nice try, Joe.

simple...for me...NO CABLE = DIAL UP SERVICE.

just don’t watch the programs/channels that pander to all things left....there are a few out there, learn to be a selective consumer.

actually my cable provider is slightly right of center, but as a good business model, they offer the channels that will keep consumers happy, ergo a broad spectrum.

What would you expect them to say? And I would respond with, "Why not?" There's a preponderance of material that would shut them up in an instant. Just ask this guy.

But Scarborough suggested just the opposite:

Since Scarborough always gets his 'facts' completely bass-ackwards, does that mean he really wants us to blame him more? :-)

A guy who works for MSNBC doesn’t think the media is biased? MSNBC certainly is.

Scarborough is an idiot. He has caught Mika disease, speaking illogical and stupid phases in an attempt to be noticed. Since the election is over, morning Joe’s already measly ratings are going to drop to next to nothing since the majority of his viewers are people tuning in to see a trainwreck of fools. The interest in the Obamacons is gone.

One Republican to Scarborough: Then you stop cooperating with the media coverups of the murder of our ambassador, the illegal purchase of guns that killed Americans, and STOP the Stepnfetchit routine on behalf of the president and the attorney general of the United States of America.

With Republicans like Joe, who needs Democrats? Scarborough IS the problem.
I see no reason to ‘change’ my world view just because I’m outnumbered by a bunch of looters (including Warren Buffett) and moochers (Peggy Joseph).
I plan to get my ‘revenge’ by living well and avoid any government entanglement.

That doesn't make a difference...anyone that has cable is paying the salaries of Maher, Matthews, Maddow, and the rest. It's really that simple. 'The Glass Teat', indeed.

No cable (for me)= no communication.

Sun Tsu in the art of war would tell you to know thy enemy. I do selectively purchase things if a manufacturer sends money to ‘the enemy’. A distributor is merely a conduit. And I have to be selective about what restrictions I put on distributors if they are the only source of what I need

The problem with your plan is that cable tv is bundled. If you buy the package you’re paying for MSDNC every bit as much as If you never watch it. The better solution is to keep the cable as an Internet provider only, cancel the tv part and watch tv shows via download services like iTunes, Netflix and Hulu. It actually saves money, in fact.

The GOP cannot win by running a liberal candidate for president. Romney was doomed from the start. That's one truth that we need to learn.

Here's another painful truth. If it was January 2016 right now (with memories of 2012 still fresh in everyone's minds), Karl Rove could pick another liberal and have him nominated by August 2016. Worse, he could get good conservatives to believe in late October 2016 that the future of mankind requires the election of his liberal candidate. Then, the candidate would of course lose. But, Rove would be richer.

That, in a nutshell, is our problem. How many times must we relive this nightmare?

Stop lining the pockets of the media that is cheerleading for the left.

I have cable - INTERNET cable. Not television cable.

Maybe you should consider switching providers?

the town allowed only 1 provider to tack onto our pole. When Verizon wanted to supply us with their fiber optic product...the town, with a sweetheart contract with Cablevision....told them....OK as long as you can do the whole town (huge town) in 6 months....or no deal.

they knew it would take 2-3 years to fiber optic the whole town.....so Verizon pulled back. We have 1 provider. I bundle with them as they supply all 3 services (internet, Phone and Cable TV) for less than I can get the 3 separate and I cant get all three separate....

I can get telephone from Verizon low tech, 2 wire system...just a plain phone, I can get satellite tv, but I can only get high speed internet from the one local cable supplier.
