I was reading this article: Enough Already! about the Conservative attitude toward the liberal media and it got me to thinking. The author is correct in stating that we have to stop thinking we can win over the press with fact and truth. They don’t care about such things and our parading them around is meaningless to them. They will continue to spout lies anyway. Why this is so, I don’t know, but it is, and we have to accept that. They have their minds made up and refuse to be concerned with facts.
I mentioned to a friend of mine over the weekend that if we’d had the Internet during the Clinton campaign back in ‘92, probably a lot more damning evidence about him would have come out. I think the blogosphere as a whole has been a boon to the Conservative – it allows us to get our message out to the general public by bypassing the standard media outlets. Truth and facts are out there, we just have to bring them out despite the standard media’s attempts to hide and/or ignore them. Really, the media today consists of nothing more than yellow journalism and it truly is up to us to separate fact from fiction.
Below is a quote from the article. I hope you read it in full.
It is a truism that to fight on a battlefield not of your choosing is to concede an enormous advantage to the opposition. The sooner the conservatives abandon their delusional belief in the innate goodness of the liberal heart and realize that the Big Media is their bitter enemy that has to be fought tooth and nail, the better their chances will be. Enough is enough. It’s time for the conservatives to wake up and smell the coffee.
