Weekend Humor (Or Not)

With a hat tip to Bloviating Zeppelin, the graphic below isn't humorous after all, but rather Orwellian (Click directly on the image to enlarge it):


Some reading and a bonus funny below the fold.

From CNS News.com:
Rep. Joe Walsh (R.-Ill.) said Wednesday in an interview with Media Research Center President Brent Bozell that he believes the media will show “real desperation” to protect President Barack Obama during the 2012 campaign.

“This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons,” Walsh said. “He was liberal, he was different, he was new, he was black....the potpourri of everything.

"They are so vested in our first black president not being a failure that it’s going to be amazing to watch the lengths they go to to protect him,” Walsh continued....
Bloviating Zeppelin comments:
Those are, at the very least, facts in evidence. Everyone with a modicum of common sense knows that the entire American and Euro media have been and still are "in the tank" for The One.

Despite the fact that Mr Obama is a racist, is a liar, was schooled in the works of Marx, Ayers, Alinsky, Reverend Wright, is a supporter of Cloward-Piven, Agenda 21, et al....
The rest HERE.

With thanks to Will:

  1. Joe Walsh nailed it. I think none of us can understand right now what the next year will be like in the media.

    Obama will be beautified and the GOP candidate will be demonized.

    A media who had no interest in Obama's "God damn America" church will dig through the GOP candidate's past to find that they once attended a lecture by a fringe minister.

    A media that ignored the fact that half of the people working in the Obama WH are tax cheats will discover the GOP candidate once failed to declare sales tax on an internet purchase.

    A media that has ignored a Justice Department program that is supplying guns for the murder of Border Patrol agents by Mexican drug lords will report (extensively) that the GOP candidate is actually for deporting people who are here illegally.

  2. Independent media has, unfortunately, gone the way of the dinosaur.

  3. There have actually been negative stories lately. As debacles like Guns to Mexican drug lords, Green energy scams, unemployment, and daily examples of incompetence continue to stack up, it will only get worse.

    It think dam will eventually burst and they will turn on him. A dog's gotta bark and a reporter's gotta report.

  4. I'm concerned about Republicans (actually Conservatives) who are saying they refuse to hold their nose again and vote for a candidate that is not truly Conservative. The result of not voting may give us 4 more years of Barack.

    We can't stand that

  6. Thank goodness for the alternative media. There was a time when the LSM was all we had to get the news.

  7. Debbie,
    I'm concerned about Republicans (actually Conservatives) who are saying they refuse to hold their nose again and vote for a candidate that is not truly Conservative.

    This is a matter of great concern for me as well.

    Many Conservatives have forgotten that there was dissatisfaction from the Right for Ronald Reagan back in 1980. Of course, disdain for Jimmy Peanut trumped that dissatisfaction with Reagan, so Reagan won anyway.

  8. Silverfiddle,
    There have actually been negative stories lately.

    A few have gained real traction in the mainstream media. Now, if this were September of 2012, the effect of these stories would be to damage Obama's chances for re-election.

    But we're a long, long way from November 2012. What will the media be reporting (or propagandizing) in the fall of 2012?

    In my experience, American voters have short memories.

  9. Chuck,
    You are absolutely correct that the mainstream medial will pull out all the negative stops regarding the GOP candidate -- and will be silent about any negativity regarding Obama.

    The influence of the media on the outcome of a national election cannot be overstated!

    Note the following:

    Although a dismal economic forecast spells defeat for Obama in 2012, a huge proportion of people ignorant of political issues or dependent on government handouts, or both, will support him.

    A CNN reporter recently asked First Lady Michelle Obama about the 2012 election, “It’s going to be quite vicious, isn’t it? How do you prepare for that?” Her answer: “You know, it’s…we’re ready…Fortunately, we have help from the media.”...

  10. Easy to manipulate folks in relatively good times not so easy when they have lost their job and/or house

  12. "Easy to manipulate folks in relatively good times not so easy when they have lost their job and/or house"

    But if you repeat the lie often enough that is someone else 's fault, i.e. the Republicans, you can manipulate the fools who depend on the gubermint for their living. BTW they are among the many who lost the houses that they couldn't afford to begin with. They are among those that he keeps giving more unemployment too above the 99 weeks. So good times or bad there are still enough fools who will vote for him and if the dumbass farright stays at home or votes for some loser 3rd party candidate, say hello to Obama for another four years and say goodbye to America as a free country.

  13. Ticker,
    I agree with you about the 3rd party candidate.

    As one who voted 3rd party from 1988-1996, I've learned my lesson!

    The best that one can hope to achieve with a 3rd party candidate is throw the election in the House of Representatives. Frankly, I don't have confidence in the House.

    I am greatly concerned that the GOP does not have an electable candidate. We should remember that, very likely, Obama will automatically garner 30%-40% of the popular vote.

    In 2008, I was absolutely stunned that two of my cousins voted for Obama. Why? One of my cousins would have gladly voted for McCain, but she didn't like Palin (the sound of her voice and her position on abortion). The other cousin is facing terrible economic difficulties and actually believed that Obama would do something to help her and her family; this cousin was nearly 60 years old in 2008 and should have known better.

    Now, cousin 2, who twice voted for GWB even though she is a Democrat, may have learned her lesson. My other cousin, who twice voted for GWB even though she is registered as an Independent, clearly has not! She still believes that Obama is a smart man. Indeed, she believes that ALL Presidents are smart men because they graduated from college.

    Neither of these cousins reads web news or the blogs, but instead rely upon the mainstream media.

    Right now, many are counting on the Independent voters to swing to the GOP in 2012. I'm not convinced that such will happen.

  14. Chin up folks, in 2010 Conservatives made great strides. Since then republicans have won in several special elections including most recently a predominantly DNC controlled area in NC.

    The economy is not going to improve before the election. If anything it is going to get worse.

    Why do you agree with the media that the RNC has unelectable candidates? That's bull. Remember Ronald Reagan won in California and in his relection he swept the Nation.

    Hussein barely won last time if you look at State by State matchups. His greatest advantage was being the 1st black President. Second was an unpopular occupation. 3rd an economy beginning to lag. 4th a have been candidate who we questioned whether he was conservative or not and new comer with a squeaky voice for VP. 5th DNC controlled legislatures in many States.
