So I’m flipping through the channels last night, and I land on Madcow’s monologue about the horror of Sarah Palin refusing to engage the LSM (good for Sarah, I say, they’ve been relentless in their attacks on her, their shocking misogyny, and completely unfair and biased coverage of her). Madcow rambles on and on about how conservative media has made a habit of calling out the LSM on its bias and lack of truthfulness, how the only media you can trust is conservative media (I’m not sure this is true, I like to get more than one viewpoint, but if I had to listen to only one source of news, I’d definitely choose a conservative outlet). She is horrified that Rush and Fox actually point out that the LSM is attempting to influence events, craft cultural understanding, etc. And it’s all true, it has. And the LSM has become increasingly relentless, shrill, and extreme as their desperation grows and their credence with the American people wanes.
And Madcow is sputtering mad about it . . . because, as you will see at about 8:40 or so , the progressives can’t get it work for them!
But when we try it, it never works! Gee, I wonder why not? And no, it’s not that conservative media has been at it since the ’60’s (or whatever); it’s because no one believes either the LSM or the progressive media. Heck, no one but the most koolaid-soaked sad case wants to listen to the latter on a regular basis, or at all (witness the bankruptcy of “Air America” and the horrid ratings of MSNBC itself).
But progressives, always working on a way to manipulate and control everyone and everything, aren’t upset that Fox and Rush have found a formula that works . . . they’re upset that even though they’ve tried the same strategy (that they, themselves, call manipulative, false, unethical, etc.) . . . they just can’t get it to work for them.
And that, my friends, is all we really need to know about progressives.
