The Little Network That Could
(Spoiler: big reward for your patience in final video)
The Mainstream Media has been losing credibility since 2008. Starting with the assassination of Hillary Clinton’s character and continuing on to prop up their version of Jesus incarnate, there has been consistent avoidance of anything that resembles factual and unbiased reporting. Good for the blogosphere, bad for TV news.
That’s why my head spun around like Linda Blair in her signature scene from the exorcist when I heard CNN’s Erin Burnett audaciously reported the truth about the OWS movement shortly after it began.
Could this be? Someone actually had the stones to say what we’ve all been thinking about the OWS movement? A cable news network actually had the gall to challenge OFA’s astroturf movement that would eventually be used to create class warfare so the Jesus Christ Lizard could appear to be walking on water when fleeing from his opponent. What a welcome relief.
Does Jim Walton Really Suck?
Fast forward to July 2o12, CNN President Jim Walton announced his resignation because “CNN needs new thinking. That starts with a new leader who brings a different perspective, different experiences and a new plan, one who will build on our great foundation and will commit to seeing it through. And I’m ready for a change. I have interests to explore and I want to give myself time to do it.” Sounds like a forced resignation to me, but I’ll give Jim the benefit of the doubt.
If you’ve seen this already, fast forward to final
Just this week, the video below was released by a SuperPAC affiliated with the Obama Re-election Campaign (even thought they swear they had no knowledge of the ad). If you haven’t seen this misleading piece of crap, watch it. If not, skip it. Its another minute and three seconds of your life you’ll never get back.
It was immediately exposed for the hyperbolic piece of shit that it truly is by CNN:
I was still wondering if Blitzer had a brain fart or death wish in actually reporting the news, but then this emerged. The 18 minutes and 22 seconds that follows should be required viewing to restore faith in the media. Complete with crazy-gluing your eyelids open.
18m 22s of Pure Gold!
If this smarmy little prick is any indication of the caliber of Robert Gibbs’ SuperPAC team, then I fully encourage them to move forward with the same tone they’ve employed thus far. You know that old saying: “When your opponent is shooting themselves in the foot, just sit down and STFU”. For that reason alone, I choose to remain mum.
