Superb Commentary On The Mainstream Media

Marianne Jennings has an accurately definitive column up on today’s MSM.

To exerpt,

The problem with the mainstream media is that they lack the collective wisdom of the red states. Those in the red states know the difference between stupidity and rights. They know that fault cannot always be assigned. They look at the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of media teeth on how Mr. Bush’s ties to Halliburton caused Hurricane Katrina and realize that the press may not be parring the hole on insight, intelligence, or analysis.

The indignation over the release of information on the Veep’s quail hunting accident is something beyond the usual and well documented media bias. The mainstream media have become unhinged. So great is their dislike of Mr. Bush and so strong their desire to have a Watergate office-removal scandal that they cannot distinguish between relevant and irrelevant, material and immaterial. Blinding rage is destructive.

Talk about a well hammered nail!

    Another interesting development that endangers the mainstream media is the rise of news aggregators like News Bump which is more interesting than many big media outlets.

    Loneranger –

    I went and checked out News Bump, great site. It is now shortcutted and I’ll be dropping in often.

    Not only is the Democratic Party rendering itself irrelevant by failing to bring viable ideas to the table and actually take national security seriously; the MSM is rendering itself irrelevant by failing to bring pertinent news to the populace as well. Neither disappoints me the slightest bit.

    Old Soldier –

    I feel exactly the same way — the Dems are doing as good a job or better of campaigning for Republicans than many Republicans, and that assures us of continuing majorities on the right side of the aisle and conservative administrations. Works for me.

    Liberal newspapers like the New York Times are finding subscriptions dropping off as the American public realizes that they, like their cronies in the Democratic party, have become moot. People are simply weary of reading and listening to their constant attacks on the administration as a blatant substitute for any kind of constructive input.

    Yet despite the fact that it becomes increasingly obvious that the left does not speak for the vast majority of the American people, even some of their own politicians and strategists have admitted their lack of any unified message, they continue to follow the same path and further sabotage themselves at the polls. Again, works for me. :-)

    Talk about a well hammered nail!The MSM is just continually proving the old adage: “When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail…”

    That, my friend, is a perfect analogy.
