In response to jmel's comment:
Most of the people that are dumb enough to watch the stupid shows and be crazy enough to have their vote influenced, have no power and can`t watch.
It's like advertising. I simply cannot imagine being someone who would watch a commercial and think, "gee I need to go buy that." Or would think of buying something later, and buy the brand they just so happened to remember because they saw it on TV - as opposed to researching it or at least looking
at the options available.
But we know it works, and works really well, because companies spend millions upon millions upon millions on advertising. It's everywhere.
I checked Fox News to see what they had to say about Obama's response to Sandy, and along the way, noted such "Fair and Balanced" news as:
"BIAS ALERT: Media 'Enemies of America'
OPINION: Media slammed for not challenging Obama during coverage of attack on US Consulate in Libya"
Yeah. Bias alert. Listen to us. We're not biased. ROFL!
And they also instruct you to believe that Obama "re-botched" his response by using "optimal" to tie in to Stewart's use of "optimal". Listen to these fair and balanced words, which are so obviously more neutral than NYT factual reporting:
More political hackery has been committed in service of the myth of "likability" than any other trope of recent years.
Wrongly believing that American voters are fools who cast their votes for commander in chief in the same way that they do for contestants on "American Idol," consultants, politicians and pundits have long worshiped at the altar of "likability."
And on Thursday, President Obama made himself a human sacrifice to the "likability" gods.
I recall that those orders were dutifully carried out by BDC conservatives.
Maybe 12AM isn't just exagerrating with his colorful metaphor/"lemmings" description.
And...such words as "resorting" to mock the Presidential campaign - no wonder this is where you BDC conservatives get your claims about libeals being "desperate". Fox is feeding the biased language to you:
Title: "Obama Camp Resorting to Insults, Despite '08 Lament"
(The article happened to be one that one of you already copied and pasted about how Obama truthfully called Romney a "bullsh!tter" among other meaniehead things).
They don't say much of anything about Obama's response (perhaps to make you think there isn't one?), though they do stop to mention that Romney might use it for political points (photo ops with Christie).
"President Barack Obama declared a major disaster in New York and Long Island, making federal funding available to residents of the area. He suspended campaigning again Tuesday."
I wonder if, when they deign to mention anyting in particular about an Obama response, it will be anything other than a claim that he's trying to use Sandy to play politics? I wonder whether the charge will be repeated here?
