I want to take a chance to say something now that the election results are official.
I have spent many years now listening to how the msm media (whatever that includes) was so leaning in Obama's favor. In the light of tonight's
results maybe this explains why that was. Maybe the media is only an extention of the public conciousness. I think alot of us would agree that the
media basicly would exhibit what the vox populi would listen to, or what they will buy. If the media had an Obama preference it was because it was the
As far as I have been able to discover the msm is for the most part owned by wealthy conservatives. I don't know where you work but everwhere I have
ever worked it was the boss that had the final say of the driving thought within that corporation. We know Fox is horribly left and that with the
exception of Morning Joe and Buchanan, MSNBC is very left but AM radio, except in the most Progressive of areas is almost entirely far right. AM radio
(Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannady, (lately))
The support we saw in this campaign, the influence of "Joe The Plumber" was from that massive media far right influence. The opposition I have
already seen posted against the revival of the fairness doctorine,(on this board) is a perfect example. If the media is so left biased, why would you
oppose the established of a fairness doctorine that said that both sides get equal exposure? Is it really because if it is equal exposure the right
will have to share the air time with the left? Isn't getting equal exposure to both sides our best hope of denying ignorance?
It is my prayer that both sides will lay down the past and look to the future. It isn't about God, or abortion, or socialism, just about making the
United States of America a country that stands for what is right and what should be admired. A country that will stand up for a country in peril and
use it's might in righting an injustice and not just a country that would use an injustice to further the avarice of some of it's leaders.
I will be watching what the democrats due with the faith that our country has trusted them with. They have been handed a shredded shambles of a
country. I don't expect them to perform miracles, but I expect them to really try.
That's my .02 worth, I am glad that Obama won and I really hope that my country (first) can repair it's face in our world.
