Every lie that the media doesn't correct automatically becomes true.
They have a window of two days; after that reality is altered.

Exactly. Romey says whatever he pleases, changing positions from one day to the next. Meanwhile, Obama gets his jokes 'fact-checked'.

And he will not answer for his own gaffes and misstatements. The log cabin in his eye is nothing compared to the splinter in Obama's in his distorted view.

Re-listened to my audio from today. Here is exactly what Romney said about firefighters on rpline: "Sorry? I'm not going to talk about that"

Emily Friedman @EmilyABC
Asked Romney on ropeline about his firefighter comments he responded, "What? Oh I'm not going to talk about that."

Rmoney is using the tidal wave approach to media manipulation- lie so often and so regularly that the media has no time to actually examine any of the lies.

That, and the fact that the MSM is a bunch of stenographers now.

Yeah! Why didn't we ever hear anything about Obama's radical black separatist preacher or how he was pallin' around with terrorists? The Liberal Media was conspiring to put a Kenyan Socialist in charge!

Not since Machiavelli has the world seen the sharp and incisive political killer-instinct possessed by Katie Couric. She alone destroyed the entire McCain/Palin campaign, bringing it to its knees with query and insight heretofore unseen in American politics.

2012-06-13 11:10:38 AM  
So there's the little lies Mitt uses. More interesting is the Big Lie the GOP spreads, that the Obama administration is a "failed" presidency. I haven't seen the media asked "Failed how?" They just let it lie there, unquestioned.

So your view is "It's ok for Romney to lie and the media not to care because that's what happened in 2008", then when someone tells you that's not what happened in 2008 your response is, "spin / excuses / LSM"?

How does that work?

Ratings.

The media wants it to be a horse race. If Romney gets too far ahead, they'll do whatever they can to rein it back. Of course, this all has to be done under the guise of looking unbiased.

Cocksuckers, all.
 
2012-06-13 11:58:58 AM

Remember, voters. If Mitt Romney lies constantly during his campaign, imagine what he will lie about if he's wins the White House.

I'm amazed how much Romney lies. Don't the Republicans possess any sense of honor and integrity?

Lying is part of campaigning. It is not an attribute of only one party. What I find worrisome about Romney (and other liars like him) is he can't keep his stories straight. A sure tell of a lousy con man.
 
2012-06-13 01:09:15 PM  
I'm thinking this blog isn't the place to determin if the main stream media is buying anyone's lie. They just cover what is said. The second you get into analysis then you get into the dangerous world of partisanship.

I get that feeling too when I'm feeling tin-foil hattish. It seems like they want this to be neck-and-neck so they squeeze every advertising dollar possible out of it. Well other than Fox, they just want another republican in office so they can go back to calling anti-war protestors "traitors"

"Telling the Truth" and "Using Facts" are liberal ideals.

A conservative can't be criticized for not acting like a liberal. Liberals however are open to conservative lies about how they are not living up to their liberal ideals.
