When you see those sorts of numbers there is obviously a problem, denying it isn't going to make it go away.
Yup, there is a new religion taking hold in America called extreme Republicanism that has erected an altered reality and is defending it diligently by demonizing anything that differs. Any voices that speak the truth must be eliminated. The news must not be left to critics but to preachers. It doesn't matter that a mass psychosis can destroy society. Conservatives would rather humanity go extinct then that they be wrong. You have a dangerous disease, my dear monovilage, and it's dangerous to everything.

Try to snap out of it. Give science some credit for what it tells us about how the conservative mind works. Try to be modest and self examining.

The silver lining here is that more people than ever are thinking critically.
Yup, if you even wonder off the Fox News funny farm for even a few minutes you're apt to get hit in the head by a mind-exploding critically-thought dart. Just the other day I saw it happen to Homer Simpson.

I think it really points out a problem that 1 in 4 Republicans don't trust the media and 1 in 3 independents don't trust the media, yet we still have intellectually dishonest people that blindly deny there's any problem or that there's a logical reason that 60% of Americans don't trust the mainstream media.

CharlesKozierok's post above stated: "There's a problem, but we have very different ideas about what it is."

Remember the problem Galileo had reporting on the fact that the Earth orbits the Sun?

Reporting on the fact that conservatives are out to lunch looks like bias to them. Even science is now studying and proving this because they realize conservative delusions have put us all in danger. I have hope that an anti propaganda pill can be found that will destroy false delusions. I will be the first to take it. I always did like red pills.

No that's just confirmational bias. You regularly display all of the typical altered reality irrationality and bias of a conservative propaganda victim. The press doesn't buy into your brainwashed way of thinking so they are the ones who are biased. What can you bring to the table that proves you are objective. You know the scientists are out to get you too, right?

Moonbeam says:
Fox news is the Nazi party propaganda machine transposed in modern America and the aims are the same, to demonize and destroy liberalism concentrated probably nowhere else more profoundly than in Jewish philosophy and thinking. And poor poor liberals, like always, they don't see the threat. Never again, my ass. Bless the fanatic Germans. After 50 million dead they had the brains to ban psychotic free speech and the Nazi party. Maybe after the next world war the American Neocon Nazi machine starts, and a few hundred million Americans dead, we will have acquired as much sense.

Tell Moonbeam for me he's one hellishly perceptive mother fucker. When I read what he said I nearly fell out of my chair.

Know This

by BigFurHat

Know this. The media does not care about any Obama scandals. They are only concerned with one thing. Get the guy back into office.

They simply want socialism and left-wing style government control in America, and Obama is that vehicle. They will run a gauntlet for him no matter what scandal erupts. There will be no October surprise. There will be no “sea change” moment that will amount to a hill of beans for the right. Show me the average “undecided voter” in America today and I will show you someone that has not heard a negative thing about Obama from the media.

Know this -

The media does not care that the Obama administration ignored pleas from the American Embassy in Libya to provide extra security because they were being attacked regularly.

They do not care that Obama covered up what he knew, that this was a coordinated attack by al-Qaeda on the anniversary of 9/11.

They do not care that Obama scapegoated an American citizen and blamed his stupid youtube video for the “spontaneous violence” in order to obfuscate that this was an Obama administration failure of national security.

This event would have immediately sunk any other presidency. The coverup of a hotel room break-in by CREEP operatives is peanuts compared to this coverup. It’s peanut shells compared to what the Obama administration has just done.

They do not care that the Obama administration developed an operation to walk guns into the hands of drug lords in order to create deadly violence to justify the repeal of the 2nd amendment, an operation which resulted in the death of border patrol agents.

They do not care that they continually lied at congressional hearings to desperately save their collective ass.

They do not care that Obama gave billions of dollars to companies he was warned would fail, and they did fail, just so he could pay back political backslappers.

They do not care that he has not indicted Jon Corzine, one of many criminal Obama campaign donators, for walking off with billions of dollars of private equity.

They do not care that Obama has bargained away missile defense shields and told the Russians, with a wink and a nod, that he could do more for them after the election.

They do not care.

They are not going to inform the undecided voters. And if the information seems to be getting legs among the great unwashed, their reports will be that these are all vast right-wing conspiracies, and they are nothing to be concerned about.

Obama can do anything, just as Ted Kennedy could do anything.

Kennedy was a reckless drunk his entire life, they looked the other way. By looking the other way they allowed Teddy to continue his disregard for human life until the night he barrel rolled his philandermobile into a pond, trapping a girl he wanted to screw in his car. Teddy then ran away, which is all a man of his character could do, and tried to find someone who would take the fall for him. That’s the Lion of the Senate.

This would have sunk anyone else’s career. But the media would not allow this scum, who reflexively voted for any bill left of center, to go down in flames.

Just a couple of years ago a woman in the media said Kopechne’s death was merely collateral damage in the war to keep the leftist drunk in HIS senatorial seat. She even said Kopechne would probably agree that letting Teddy slide on his negligent drunken homicide would be worth it if she could somehow see into the future all the “great things Kennedy would accomplish for the left.” This is the media we are up against.

Tomorrow night, Obama could show up for the debate with cocaine all around his nostrils, with a blood soaked shirt, holding a six iron and say, “where the bitches at?,” and George Stuffesophagus will declare Obama the winner of the debate.

It doesn’t matter.

The only thing we can hope for is that there are enough Americans who understand what tyranny is, and vote accordingly, assuming they are not asshats who want tyranny.

Godspeed patriots. It’s out of our hands.

The media no longer just reports the news, it gives an opinion and spin on the news. It is done so much that we it's automatically ingrained in our mind, and we believe what we think is correct no matter if it is or not.

Godspeed nut cakes it's out of your hands.

Poor poor conservative nut cakes. You created and live in a dream world and demand from the rest of the thinking universe that we take your mass hysteria as real and when your nutter self hate and self loathing you project onto others blows up in your face you think it's the rest of us that have gone insane. But what you so had hoped would go around has come home to spit in your face. You have earned for yourselves all the sympathy for the defective and pathetic, the weak and crippled that you were willing to give. The Monster of the Id has come for you.

Your meds - they need some adjustment.
