Media Headbangers' Ball
The media is now bashing its collective head against the wall, wondering how it is that people are so stupid as to vote Bush. The demographics show that viewers of Fox News (the most watched news channel) and listeners to talk radio voted Bush, while readers of newspapers and watchers of network news voted Kerry. Chris Matthews dealt with this over the weekend, as a roomful of ultra-left reporters ruminated about the situation, while silently mourning their loss of their stranglehold on public opinion.
"The media simply do not understand that they blew it. They flaunt their superiorism and their leftist credo in every story, and make no secret that they think that we conservatives are mindless dolts."
The media simply do not understand that they blew it. They flaunt their superiorism and their leftist credo in every story, and make no secret that they think that we conservatives are mindless dolts. They are flabbergasted that there are people out there that believe in God, in responsibility and self-reliance, in limited government, and in good over evil. They are jealous of Fox and Rush Limbaugh and their appeal to normal Americans. They are livid that their concerted Bush-bashing campaign was utterly unsuccessful in unseating this fundamentally good man.
As they engage in their self-pitious headbangerís ball, the leftists are whacking us for our ignorance, our simplicity, ultimately our common sense. We continue to migrate to Fox News, where one actually hears both sides of a story, not just the leftist propaganda angle on that story. We continue to listen to Rush, Hannity and others whose perspective makes sense, and ignore the leftists whose overcomplicated analyses cloud the issues with irrelevancies.
In the end, the media and the leftist elite must realize that they have lost the hearts and minds of the people, not because of some trick of the right, far from it. They lost us with their duplicity.
