    I doubt there are any astute observers of the culture who don't realize that the media, for the most part, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Left.

    The value of that to those on the gauche side of the aisle can be ascertained from the coverage of the Family Research Council shooting.

    1. "FRC SHOOTING: MEDIA NOT READY TO BLAME POLITICS



    2. The August 15 shooting of a security guard at the Washington HQ of the Family Research Council didn't spark the same hyperbolic claims from the Old Media establishment that politics is at the root of this violence.

    3. The shooter has ties to the gay rights community.



    4. No calls for investigations were made, no individual politicians were accused of fostering a "violent atmosphere," and no particular ideology was blamed as the cause of this crime.

    5. Unlike every recent shooting that happened before it, crimes that were immediately blamed on the evil, evil Tea Party, or conservatives, or even Rush Limbaugh, this shooting was treated in a subdued manner by Old Media and was practically ignored by the talking heads of the lefty establishment.



    6. ...one of the most egregious headlines in the Old Media. It came from the Washington Post whose headline on iPad read, "Police: Suspect disagreed with Family Research Council."

    7. Goldberg: “Disagreed”? The suspect shot someone. “Disagreed”!? Why so bombastic? Why not say that the would-be killer “had a different perspective’

    8. In the Post's coverage, the paper claimed that the shooter "expressed disagreement" with the Family Research Council's political positions as he broke out the firepower. Goldberg is right. This is a absurd as it gets in the Old Media.



    9. ...contrast the Post's treatment with ABC's Brian Ross who last month immediately went looking for Tea Party members that might have a similar name to the Colorado theater shooter in an attempt to smear Tea Partiers with that crime..."
    FRC Shooting: Media Not Ready to Blame Politics



    10. The NYTimes was almost as shy: "A law enforcement official said Mr. Corkins made comments indicating his opposition to the council’s goals during the confrontation....A police spokesman, Officer Araz Alali, said that the gunman’s motives were not known,..."
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/16/u...rch-council-in-washington.html?pagewanted=all



    Now for a trip down memory lane:

    "...President Bill Clinton pointed an unmistakably accusatory finger at conservative talk radio after the Oklahoma City bombing and when Democrats galore lurched to blame Sarah Palin and tea partyers for the Tucson, Ariz., shootings."

    So it was hardly surprising that ABC News’ Brian Ross noted on “Good Morning America” that a person with the name of the alleged shooter, James Holmes, was a registered member of the Colorado Tea Party Patriots or that David Gregory, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” in discussing the Aurora shootings, casually invoked President Clinton’s words about the Oklahoma bombing.

    While pretending to refrain from ascribing political motivations to the Aurora shooting, Gregory said, “But President Clinton’s words back in 1995 could be true today, couldn’t they, about how some of the public discourse can fall on more vulnerable ears?”
    David Limbaugh: The left's habitual and ironic rush to judgment



    Without the media to air-brush reality out of conjecture, it would be seen by all that violence is at home on the Left.

    Predictable and therefore no surprise at all from the lamestream media clowns. Fortunately though it's things like this that are contributing to them slowly putting themselves out of business.

    1. “Indra's net (also called Indra's jewels or Indra's pearls) is a metaphor used to illustrate the concepts of emptiness,[2] dependent origination,[3] and interpenetration[4] in Buddhist philosophy. The metaphor of Indra's net was developed by the Mahayana Buddhist school in the 3rd century scriptures of the Avatamsaka Sutra, and later by the Chinese Huayan school between the 6th and 8th century.[2]

    Buddhist concepts of interpenetration hold that all phenomena are intimately connected; for the Huayan school, Indra's net symbolizes a universe where infinitely repeated mutual relations exist between all members of the universe.[5] This idea is communicated in the image of the interconnectedness of the universe as seen in the net of the Vedic god Indra, whose net hangs over his palace on Mount Meru, the axis mundi of Vedic cosmology and Vedic mythology. Indra's net has a multifaceted jewel at each vertex, and each jewel is reflected in all of the other jewels:[6] Indra's net - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    2. When one views the struggles, chaos and violence of the 60's, it is a deadly error to believe that the movers and shakers of that time 'disappeared.' No...they are with us to this day.



    3. "The radicals of the sixties did not remain within the universities…They realized that the apocalypse never materialized. “…they were dropping off into environmentalism and consumerism and fatalism…I watched many of my old comrades apply to graduate school in universities they had failed to burn down, so they could get advanced degrees and spread the ideas that had been discredited in the streets under an academic cover.” Collier and Horowitz, “Destructive Generation: Second Thoughts About The Sixties,” p. 294-295.



    4. “The radicals were not likely to go into business or the conventional practice of the professions. They were part of the chattering class, talkers interested in policy, politics, culture. They went into politics, print and electronic journalism, church bureaucracies, foundation staffs, Hollywood careers, public interest organizations, anywhere attitudes and opinions could be influenced. And they are exerting influence.” Robert H. Bork, “Slouching Toward Gomorrah,” p. 51


    5. Were there real Americans with American values in what is known as the 'main stream press,' the truth would be told, and the Democrat Party would be know as

    the party of slavery, segregation, sedition and secularism.


    Instead, charges against the Right are shouted through the NY State Lottery megaphone, and those against the Left ignored.

    Why are all your OP's numbered lists? Did you learn to read by reading the instructions on the back of a frozen dinner?

    Why are you unwilling or unable to engage with actual words, and thoughts, a real and pervasive danger in our society, that the vaunted 'Forth Estate' has abandoned any attempts at it's real mission..."The job of the newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"...


    ...and become simply the lap-dog of the Left?


    How is it that individual such as yourself have floated onto the threshold of adulthood lacking character and willing to accept the lies of omission and of commission?



    BTW....I can answer that if you can't.

    Why are you unwilling to organize your thoughts into paragraphs?

    Have you actually been educated? Formal schooling?

    If so...how can it be that you are unable to differentiate between form and substance.

    You do realize, your only comments have been about the form of the posts?



    Go ahead...try ....bring something to the table.

    Don't you realize that you are embarrassing yourself by claiming that you couldn't understand my posts?

    Since you won't explain why there are folks like yourself....let me.



    1. Leftism is so pervasive, that if applied to any other way of looking at life, it would be widely recognized as a form of brainwashing! Image a person who attended only fundamental Christian schools from preschool through graduate school, who never saw a secular, let alone anti-Christian, film, and who only read religious books. Most would say that they had been ‘brainwashed.”

    Yet, we regularly find individuals who only attended secular liberal schools from preschool through college, watched or listened to only Left-of-center television, movies, music, and had essentially no exposure to religious or conservative ideas. Brainwashed?
    Of course not! Liberals are open-minded!!! The irony here is that the denial itself shows how very effective the brainwashing has been.
    Now, Christians or Jews who have rarely been exposed to secular ideas and values would readily acknowledge same. It is only those on the Left who fool themselves into believing that they have been exposed to all points of view.
    From "Still The Best Hope," Prager

    2. Universities have become to Liberalism what a Christian seminary is to Christianity. The difference is that Christian seminaries acknowledge their purpose, to produce committed Christians.

    a. “The purpose of a university should be to make a son as unlike his father as possible.” The University's Part in Political Life” (13 March 1909) in PWW (The Papers of Woodrow Wilson) 19:99.

    Many in your position will break free of the miasma....it will be seen November 6th...it is as of yet not evidenced that you have the strength to do so.
