Exactly How Biased
is the American Media?The average
American voter is starting to come to grips with the fact that those who
control the flow of their information, "the media,” are neither
independent nor unbiased.
August 22, 2008
September 2007 Gallup survey of American voters, 45% said the
media is too liberal, compared to only 18% who said the media
is too conservative and 35% who said the media is about right.
The results of that
survey demonstrate how far left 18% of Americans are today, and how
uninformed another 35% are. Only 45% have a good sense of just how
biased the media really is, before they follow the money and
confirm their suspicions.
It’s the information
age, so the media is made up of several sectors today. American
thought patterns and political sentiments are influenced almost entirely
by a combination of all of these sectors, collectively referred to as

In case you think
the money trail doesn’t prove anything...a glance at the last 18 years
of political funding will change your mind!
is alive and well at the expense of a million innocent children a year
because the pro-abortion lobby has spent $16,497,110 since 1990,
81% of it with Democrats while the pro-life lobby has spent only
$5,906,234 during the same period, 94% of it with Republicans. Ever
heard that the squeaky wheel gets the oil?
Americans still have
the right to keep and bear arms thanks to the gun lobby
spending $19,746,376 since 1990, 85% of it with Republicans while the
gun control lobby has only spent $1,739,542 during the same
period, 94% of it with Democrats.
education system is still a mess because the teacher union lobby
has spent $146,422,869 since 1990 to keep it that way, 71% of it with
Democrats who are protecting union thugs instead of protecting students,
many of whom can’t even read their high school diploma. But teachers who
won’t teach have tenure...making sure they can continue to turn out
illiterate voters who will undoubtedly become reliable leftist adults.
have spent $418,899,866 since 1990 trying to improve health care in
America, 57% of it with Republicans.
But trial lawyers
eager to reach into the deep pockets of health care providers and their
employers spent $935,326,123, 73% of it with Democrats, making sure that
the right to sue supersedes the right to affordable quality health care.
Our children are
indoctrinated with leftwing secular socialist garbage 24/7 from every
direction they turn because the entertainment industry (TV,
Movies and Music) has spent $231,936,767 since 1990 to buy their right
to fill our kid’s heads with secular socialist hogwash, 69% of it with
And those nasty
lobbyists that everyone
loves to hate, continue to influence peddle for a mere $143,792,645
since 1990, 52% of it with Democrats who claim to oppose lobbyists.
Ever study Hedge
Funds? Do so and find out why Hedge Fund managers like George Soros,
who almost single handedly bankrupted the British currency a few years
ago, have invested $30,716,248 in American politics since 1990,
$12,025,977 in 2008 alone, 70% of it with Democrats.
The average American
voter relies upon his "eyes and ears” (the mass media) for the
information he/she will use to make decisions about the future of their
country. Public sentiment is developed by the flow of information and he
who controls the flow of that information, controls public sentiment and
in a democratic republic, public policy.
The fact that the
American mass media is made up of leftwing nuts who control the news
room, TV, Movies, Book and Magazine, Computer and Internet industries,
should explain to every American why the majority of Americans no longer
support the concept of victory in the ongoing war on terror. After seven
years of media coverage limited to seven years of doom and gloom
body counts, who could possibly support that?
49% of Americans say
they believe the
mass media is in the bag for Barack
Obama as opposed to the 14% who think the media is
pro-McCain. How perceptive! But what will average Americans do with this
new found information?
Will they use the
knowledge of an overly biased mass propaganda system to fight against
the tide of a leftist media establishment, or will they follow
along like blind sheep on their way to slaughter?
Above all else, the
2008 election cycle will provide the answer to this question. Barack
Obama, the most under-qualified individual to ever seek the Oval Office
is quite clearly the chosen one of the American mass media
establishment. Even the Clintons found this out the hard way.
Now that American
voters know who is controlling their information, what will they do with
is the absence of information. But stupidity is the possession of
information and the refusal to use it wisely.

still need more hard evidence, here’s the latest
