One housewife’s opinion as to why the MSM is in the tank for Obama.
It’s a little hard to argue the media equally tracks and describes our two presidential candidates. But thanks to my love for conspiracy theories, I think I’ve figured out why.
The media outlets need the revenue.
I’ve told you before they make money off keeping you angry. I’m not kidding about that. You stay ticked off at them and want to prove you are right so you tune in. When you tune in, they call it a win and charge more for their next advertisement. Plus, when they keep you unhappy, more of those political advertisements are going to be necessary, so they win again.
Think about it. In 2008 America was just beginning to learn the value of a DVR. No one was watching advertising. Faster internet was moving into homes. No one was watching traditional advertising. And so they found a candidate to create the perfect storm and get you to watch advertising again.
Like it or not, American is still a right of center, Christian nation. The only way the media could make money off politics for the next four years was to elevate the candidate who offended the majority. It helped the media found a candidate who so easily polarized this country. It really helped the media could also effectively use the race card.
So this is my little mini-mid-week lecture to turn off the television and think for yourselves. I don’t know a single person who reads here who can honestly say his or her mind isn’t made up yet. Spend some time talking to others. Find that one person who hasn’t decided and try to sway them. If you get a chance, go see your candidate in person, but concede whatever happens in Kansas to those attending in Kansas. It’s not going to matter.
Be about the change you want to see, and leave the media out of it completely this round. I think America will benefit.
