Yesterdays election resulting in the Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives means Americas history has taken a dramatic turn for the worse for lower and middle income Americans for at least the next two years until another election takes place. One major lesson the American people should take from this election cycle is that the media acted disgracefully they in all likelihood changed the outcome of the election in terms of facilitating the Republican takeover of the House and this over stepping their bounds needs to be stopped. The media instead of reporting on events, and being a conduit for the American people to exercise their rights on free speech and having a voice in their government was driving events; the media is responsible for a lot of extraordinary good American leaders like Blanche Lincoln, Joe Sestak and Dan Onorato not being elected into office this year. It was very provocative and titillating the media story this election cycle of how the Democrats were going to get a drumming (Her Royal Highness Nancy Pelosi and Americas savior Barack Obama are going to get a butt woopin at the polls) and the media kept putting forth this proposition and fanning the flames on this story big-time. What the Republicans are offering to America is trickle down economics which is a lousy deal for the vast majority of the American people and a good media would have allowed the American people to recognize this and as a nation to stick with the Democrats albeit with less of a majority. The American media hurt the American people badly this election cycle. What is emblematic of this development in America of the media driving election results could be seen by looking at the front page headlines on some of Americas major newspapers on November 2, election day. The Washington Post had a headline Democrats bracing for losses, the USA Today had a headline As the GOP aims for big victory, here are the races to watch from coast to coast the New York Times had a headline Charging In on Wave of Anger, Newcomers Hope Tide Turns and the Wall Street Journal had the head lines Rebel Movement Takes Center Stage. Even if one conducts a broader analysis one would see that the print and TV media for weeks now was selling this message that the Democrats were going to lose big. They would be emphasizing Republicans and Republican candidates positives and glossing over or ignoring their negatives and dwelling on the Democrats negatives. It was actually rather unbelievable MSNBC which is like an arm of the Democrat Party in the same was Fox News is an arm of the Republican Party they were continually reporting the Democrats were going to get a drumming this election, heart and soul liberal hosts on MSNBC were totally agreeing with the political pundits predicting the Democrats massive defeat, good American journalists should assume American citizens have common sense and good judgment and can see the Republicans arent offering a good future for most of them and their neighbors and wouldnt vote Republican. Where the hell was the integrity of the American media this election cycle! To ordinary Americans when they hear and see all this pro-Republican, anti-Democrat media it made it seem like if you were going to vote Democrat your in the minority your missing something what is the point, why bother, it wont matter things like that! The media here manipulated the election! To good Americans some of the lessons that come from this election with respect to media issues is that the American people through their elected officials have to have laws and regulations put in place banning large media conglomerates because these conglomerates have policies at least unwritten ones that mandate media staff doesnt alienate large advertisement revenue clients which results in media staff in these conglomerates being biased to parties and candidates that hold policies friendly to these clients. This election cycle provides compelling evidence the Federal government should mandate News Corporation the owner of Fox News sell the Wall Street Journal the highest daily circulation paper in America. Further, the Federal government should mandate Comcast must sell off the NBC news channels: CNBC, MSNBC and NBC News if it allows the Comcast merger to go through. It has nothing to do with the personalities of Mr. Murdoch or Mr. Roberts whether their good or bad people, it has to do with money, advertisement money and these news outlets if they do the right thing and do their duty for the American people they put huge amounts of advertisement revenue for their organization at risk and the Federal Government has to stop that pressure being put upon these media outlets. Also, the journalist profession has to do some soul searching they have to identify journalist managers that sell out to special interests and betray the integrity of the profession and call for their ouster and demand all major media outlets have rules protecting media staff integrity!
