This is how the Media “SKEWS” the truth…..

Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemeis have guns, why should we let them have ideas?
-Joseph Stalin-

Mark my words here folks, this is how they do it. Today, I was looking at news blurbs that are there to let you know, in one line, what is going on. And this is what I read:

Santorum defends Satin

I sat up and said “WHAT??????!!!!!?????” I decided that I had to check the story out. Folks, it had nothing in it about Rick Santorum defending Satin. NOTHING! What the story was about was Rick Santorum defending what he said in a speech to an Evangelical Group, in 2008! That’s 2008 for crying outside here!

But on a whim, I went to the back button on my phone, *which is what I was on at the time* and went back to that one line. It now said:

Santorum defends Satin speech

Now, it was different and much more in line with what the story actually had to say. But, that first line still stuck in my mind. That is how the media plays us for fools folks. Saying something in a one liner that is patently untrue giving us the “first impression” thingy, so that will stick in our heads, even after we find out the truth of the matter.

This kind of thing pisses me off. Especially since I have always had as my career choice in life, printing. That puts journalism right up my alley. And to have them lie to get a story out that they want to put out, make me mad.

But, I do not think that the media as it is now, is capable of telling the truth. They use their little “sound bites” to take out of context what someone says, especially if that someone believes differently than they do.

They did it to Reagan. They did it to Bush Sr. They did it to Bush Jr. They did it to Sarah Palin, and they are still doing it to her.

One of the big reasons that the left, and even the GOP establishment is so against free thinking, like the Tea Party and Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum is because they believe in the same way that Stalin did, when he said the quote above. Ideas are dangerous. Maybe not to America mind you, but to their way of life it is. Especially the left. And these people are so good at getting their point across that we don’t even think about what they are saying, unless we sit down and actually think about it. Think about what their ideas for us entails. What it’s going to cost us in terms of money and liberties.

Now I know, this isn’t the way we have always done it, but it is the way they have always done it. That is why they are so good at skewing the truth in such a way that we don’t even give it a second thought when they do it.

When they say something like ‘the tea party is nothing more than a radical organization that is going to destroy America’, we don’t even give it a passing thought as to what they are doing until it’s too late. Like the two lines that I listed above. We see them, we react to them but we don’t do anything else to stop them. So the media and the left and the GOP establishment gets more brazen in what they are doing cause they feel they have gotten away with it…….once again.

America deserves that second look and the reaction from her patriots. Because if we don’t start doing that, America will become Europe. And right now, Europe is failing. That is the road that our leaders are taking us down. Do NOT let that happen anymore. Replace the bums. And stop electing new bums. Use your heads. Put in people who only want to help America back to prosperity. Don’t put people in if they are after riches and a career. Politics was never meant to be one.

Our leaders who started this nation served their time, and then after they finished what they were to do, they left Washington, and went back home to their families and worked their jobs and continued their private lives. Washington did not become their home.

Our politicians today, make their jobs in government their careers and their homes are where they are…….not where they came from.

One of the reasons that I really like Mike Pence is because he never lost sight that his home was here in Indiana. He served his time in Washington representing us, and now, he is coming home, to serve us here. That is what a representative of the people is supposed to do. So throw the bums out who will not work for the people. Because if they are not working for us, they are not doing their jobs. Period! And we are allowing this to happen by not saying anything when they and the media skews the truth. Mark my words here. I know what is going on because I have been watching this happening for a long long time now.

May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.

    Robert, You are putting into print what I have been thinking and saying for about 4 years. I was irritated at Bush II for not speaking out more to protect his integrity. He just let it slid so many times, and he did nothing about the oil crisis when he was in office. The EPA was leading the way to our destruction..False reporting on the amounts of oil were everywhere….Now this new one has not only broadcast what he is doing he’s doing in right in front of us.And not only in our energy…What ever happened to Coal Oil….The Germans used it almost exclusively in WWII. I just read an article on this somewhere, (Can’t remember where) We are doing nothing here that I have read….Two German men are on the cutting edge with this….Seems they are mixing water with Coal and heating it…I think…the resultant chemical action is liquid gas…We are currently the world producer of Coal….But……The people with the money want natural gas…That’s where they have much money……. Another thing,,,,AS you so brilliantly stated in your post…The misinformation and half truths are killing us….among other things..I’m rambling again….stay well…
    reply from Robert: I do love it when you ramble. You say more in your rambles that I do in a whole post. *ss* Thanks.

  2. That evil can be so subtle is a reality. When you expect it least, it is often there. We have no one in Congress getting to a microphone. We need them at mics. Whenever a mic is around, they need to be in front of it. They so seldom give us the information we need. Truth is, we often know it before they do because they are so steeped in it, they no longer recognize it.
    reply from Robert: You are right on that. There are a few out there, but they have to be careful when they do speak out. One such person is Mike Pence, who is leaving Congress after this term and he is running for Governor of my state, Indiana. Another one that will be leaving that speaks up is Dan Burton, also of Indiana. It’s sad we are losing the ones that speak out, and the ones that are staying won’t speak up. I think that more of the common people need to try to run for Congress and get the “lifers” out of there.

  3. Also, thanks for adding me to your blogroll. I’ve added you as well. Thanks for the visit.
    reply from Robert: Your welcome. I have been working on my blogroll lately because there are so many there that just do not exist anymore. So I am working to get the ones that need not be there out of there, and new ones on it. I Like your blog and I hope that my readers do too.

    Great post, my friend! The mainstream media can’t be trusted. They’re in the tank for the Left and have been for decades. But more and more people are coming to realize this and the mainstream media is starting to lose its power. Newspapers are losing readers and Fox News has been the number one cable news channel for years. People, even many liberals, want the truth and they know they’re not getting it from the New York Times, NBC, MSNBC, and all the rest. People ARE waking up. The situation’s not quite as critical as you seem to think, Robert, but there’s still a long way to go before we have an unbiased media again. That’s why those who see what’s going on need to keep sounding the alarm. Keep up the good work, Robert. America is depending on those like you!
    reply from Robert: Thanks. But I have noticed, following the news and watching the one liners that seem to be used in every network….even Fox uses them….to an extent….though Fox is the one that reports the other way too, whereas the other networks don’t. Thanks for the vote of confidence. It’s good to have friends like you.
