Since I'm reading about it using media -should I not believe that these billboards exist?
 
2012-02-22 09:13:01 AM  
The comments that imply that New Yorkers are going to see the billboard and get upset are adorable.

Yes, the right wing-nut media is so objective

Heh. Good general rule: At least 80% of the people in Times Square at any given time are not from New York. Though I'm sure this billboard is intended more for the tourists coming from anywhere and everywhere. It is a good spot for that purpose.
 
2012-02-22 09:43:50 AM  
The only people who read, or even notice, billboards in New York are the freakin' tourists.
 
2012-02-22 09:44:16 AM  
Yeah, you're really sticking it to the "Liberal Media", MRC...

You paid $180,000 for the billboards, which most people won't even look at or will miss amidst all the other eye candy.

Lol... Yeah, you really showed 'em.

Funny thing is these idiots would cry like the little babies they are if someone asked them to spend that money on taxes instead of whining idiocy.

America's right-wing: Scared children.

We will keep that promise because this is the most important election in our lifetime and the American people are sick and tired of the left-wing media deciding who will govern our country.

I'm sick and tired of Americans who hate democracy.

This.

Vodka Zombie: The only people who read, or even notice, billboards in New York are the freakin' tourists.


And this.

I believe the term most relevant for placing this in Times Square is "preaching to the choir". The only people reading this signs are fresh out of Flyover Country and already believe this to be true.
 
2012-02-22 10:41:06 AM  
which media company do you think owns the billboard?

It's not even that... Do they really think with all the other things going on in Time Square, all the blinking and motion ads, all the street performers, etc. that folks are going to stop and ponder their boring all text ad that's situated right next to a flashing movie screen?

They need to fire the ad agency that took them to the cleaners on that one.

They would have reached a more people by buying a few billboards along the I-95 corridor... Would have been cheaper, too.

The thing is, the right wing media is actually put out there by the left to make the right look foolish. Fox News is run by liberals.

The funny thing is that the right now sounds a lot like the radical far left in the late W's. They just need to talk about "The Man" instead of liberals.

Probably put up by the same people who threw a farking temper tantrum at the pro-atheism billboards and signs a while back.

Wait until people from Oklahoma visiting NYC see that! It'll blow their libtard minds.

I actually saw a car with a bumper sticker that said "I don't believe the liberal media" (or maybe Mainstream MSM Media... not sure). How much of a tool do you have to be to let your neighbors see that shiat?

Guy probably had one of those "My neighbor doesn't own a gun" signs on his lawn too.

Of course, "liberal media" to the Republicans means any media source other than FOX News, AM talk radio and the Wall Street Journal.

If you're not living in the conservative Echo Chamber, it's substantially harder to convince you that the President is actually a Communist-Fascist Islamic Kenyan usurper who wants to convene Death Panels for grandma while surrendering to the terrorists and banning all guns. . .and we can't have people thinking that's not true, now can we?

He's slightly left-of-center. Only a flaming liberal like you could see elsewise.

Oh really? Because the cnsnews.com readers are on to Fox news and their liberal shenanigans.

Now that Fox News has lowered the boom on both Judge Andrew Napolitano and Glenn Beck, Rupert Murdoch exhibits that he just may be a CINO (Conservative In Name Only.) Keeping some news from the public is another indicator of the Fox stripe. Everyone should be comparing what they read and hear from the other Conservative sites with what the major media Fox news is reporting in order to evaluate the Fox agenda.

You are correct that Fox needs to be re-evaluated- but they did/do make attempts to balance the news-unlike the liberal.biased lame stream "Pravda" media!

In what respect, Charlie?

The difference is that the left who complained about W. had facts on their side. Yes, i'm sure there were a few Bush = Hitler idiots, but they were very much on the fringe. Today the far right wing runs the GOP.

Wake me up when the right wing media does not just read from the exact same AP and Reuters as the demon MSM. Do some actual reporting that does not involve voices in your head as sources and I might care.

Actually, the paranoid troglodytes might not be wrong. IIRC Murdoch has previously said in an interview that if a liberal POV made money, he'd switch Newscorp's ideology overnight

"We will keep that promise because this is the most important election in our lifetime and the American people are sick and tired of the left-wing media deciding who will govern our country."

So the left wing media decided to get a bunch of teabaggers elected in 2010?

"The reason you're losing your audiences by the millions is because of your bias."

If they're losing their audiences by the millions, how are they influencing elections?

Naw, the far left thought that W was a war criminal and should have been thrown in jail forever, along with all of his "cronies". They also thought that we should split up America, since the red states were dragging everyone else down. The ideas were plenty bitter, whiny, and stupid, but they were somewhat less violent and authoritarian.

Anyone who advocates a military coup, followed by a purge, is a very poor student of history.

"(Disclosure: The MRC is the parent organization of CNSNews.com.)"

So it's an article about an ad put up by the parent company... of the article's publishers.

Ah! Now I know what a "shill" is!
 
2012-02-22 12:19:05 PM  
So... people like the Hearst family, Rupert Murdoch, and the one-percenters who own media companies... are liberal.

Right.

I work at an ad agency and am not getting a kick out of these replies...because I had the same damn argument with one of my clients yesterday. The response of "I don't care, I just want to see my billboard when I take my family to NYC left me dumbstruck.

Clients usually aren't so upfront about spending a shiatton of money to justify to friends/family that they actually do something.

Another sign that you are too farking stupid to ever be allowed out of your house, much less vote: You think the media has a "liberal" bias.
 
2012-02-22 12:25:02 PM  
To: fuzzylogic

Liberals can't let go of their belief system for three key reasons: (1) liberalism is a "feel good" ideology that allows people to hold themselves up as being altruistic regardless of how much they covet wealth (and they all do); (2) liberals are incapable of acknowledging any consequences of their policies or their long term negative impacts on society; and (3) most liberals' income depends one way or another on government largesse.

Liberals are also immune to facts. I once had a liberal PhD tell me that "Bush stole the election" despite all evidence to the contrary.

FTFA: The purpose of the campaign, estimated to cost $5 million total, is to make Americans aware of instances of apparent liberal bias in the news media, as documented by the MRC, and to make the issue of liberal media bias part of the national conversation this election year.

But their candidates lying and pulling statistics out of their ass is still A-OK!
