Speaking of journalists…..
I also did an interview with Jerry Delemus of the Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC and Diane Bitter (Republican activist and co-founder of the Seacoast Freedom Network). The full interview is on the bottom, but Jerry, during the interview, raised my eyebrows a bit.
Conservatives often believe that journalists are often biased away from them and and for liberal issues. After looking at the questions asked, I beleive that most Conservatives would have had a different ordering and emphasis. Add to that, “Conflict TV is good TV”, goes the saying.
Well, Jerry and Diane, during the interview, told the tale that Josh McElveen of WMUR and John King of CNN had actively conspired to create conflict (where there may not have been any to begin with) and were congratulating themselves for almost pulling it off:
Pulling it off? I had brought up the subject, with Amy, that the MSM is actively trying to influence the Republican race, to nudge the electorate towards one or more (more moderate) Rs.
Well, it seems quite obvious that these two chuckleheads have proved my point as in “let’s make the Republicans look petty, argumentative, and start a food fight”. Thus, instead of merely reporting the news, they were actively trying to make the news, to start the skewing of public opinion.
You’d think that CNN might have figured out that people don’t like this at all (given their loss of audience over the last few years, especially compared to Fox). WMUR is a bit protected from this, being the only commercial TV station in the State. With this brand of shennanigans, it is clear that the media is not the objective folks they try to portray.
Good going, Josh and John! You’re trying hard for that skew of 15 points, aren’t you boys?
