    Patriots' Newest Target: obama 'Minion Media'



    Limbaugh: 'Dare them to cover what is right under their noses!'

    In the wake of the massive 9/12 march on Washington, American citizens outraged by President Obama and the actions of Congress are now setting their sights on a new target – the so-called mainstream media.

    On his Sept. 14 show, talk show host Rush Limbaugh urged citizens who are frustrated by a media blackout of the nation's growing movement against Obama administration policies to bring their protests to the front doors
    of major media outlets.

    "The media [are] no longer reporters. They are repeaters," Limbaugh said. "There have been hundreds and thousands of protests by conservative groups that haven't been covered, and tiny turnouts by the left that are covered."

    He continued, "What about this? We're looking for a force multiplier. Yeah, the protest in Washington on Saturday was great, two million people, but imagine what a force multiplier would be if the next one were held outside of local and national television networks and their headquarters where they can't miss it?"

    Limbaugh suggested citizens host tea parties "on or next to the properties housing the TV networks."

    "Dare them to cover what is right under their noses!" he said.

    "Put the media in the spotlight and on the hot seat. Don't make them the protest. Continue to protest Obama. Protest health care
    . Protest the loss of liberty. Protest the coming tyranny. Just do it on their property or as close to it as you can get being law-abiding and all that. … Just show up where they can't miss it. Show up in numbers where they can't escape it."

    Limbaugh suggested leaders of the media rallies present a list of grievances to each individual station.

    "Make the challenges substantive and adult and challenge their journalistic ethics," he said. "… I want this all to happen spontaneously."

    It's not just Obama who's lying. It's his minion media, too!

    Now, one group has launched "Operation: Can You Hear Us Now?" The website declares, "Thanks to an American hero for the idea. We can take it from here."

    Grreat idea but the media will most likely call the protestors"kooks, nuts, racists or insane right-wing nutcases" instead of covering the protests as they would if it was a protest being conducted by blacks or mexicans who feel they have been slighted for one reason or another. Just out of curosity, where's Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton? I can't believe they would miss such an opportunity to be seen on tv as some sort of "savior". Guess they only show for the blacks and democrats and not plain old conservative white folks who are being wronged.

    At first I assumed that the 2 mill number at DC was a gross overestimate.

    Not so sure now. If it were substantially smaller, the media would be blaring it all over the place. It's being conspicuously silent on the matter.

    Do you really thing those at the fringe media outlets like the NYtimes, NBC, and the Huffington Post are going to do honest reporting?

    At this point they have shown their hand, they are reporting only for a far fringe of one political party and have lost their regard for investigative journalism and honest reporting.

    Its a sad day when the NYtimes is relegated to "fringe" status instead of being mainstream like they used to be.

    Right....They'll send out hack minions, like Susan Rosegen, to find the nuttiest of the nutbars to portray them as the norm.

    Who honestly expects the state pres corps to criticize the President? They've lost their credibility as objective sources long ago.

    Becks been calling out the msm or more appropriately - the fringe media - for quite awhile. He's been asking question after question after question of the WH and, like the media, has gotten no response. It is absolutely unbelievable that nothing has been covered by them, or what has been covered has been so diminished and demeaned that really, what's the point? Can anyone imagine for half a second that if the current POTUS was a Repub and all this shit was flying around what the coverage would be? Great idea by Rush. People should be writing to the msm as well, demanding that they do their job. Not that it will do any good but just to put a fork in them, cause they're done.

    They already do that BBD.

    It is a good idea, and it would give legitimate news reporting agencies new ammo to highlight the bias of the lame stream media.

    My bad! Forgot about the excellent reporting they do on bashing the other guys. Gotta give 'em credit where it's due.
