Big Dan's Big News July 14, 2010

The Republican Party is what it is - they are FOR the wealthy and big corporations, and against YOU!!! I provide proof daily of this.

The Republican Party is for the wealthiest few Americans and big corporations, and they are against the 90% rest of America. Since they all voted against extending unemployment claiming they don't want to add to the deficit, they have 1) voted to keep spending $30 billion every 12 weeks in Iraq and Afghanistan.... 2) they came out in force to push for the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy to be extended costing us trillions for unfinanced wars, and NOW...3) they are blocking cutting $35 billion in subsidies to Big Oil & Gas. Since their stance against unemployed Americans, this is what they have done. I will keep adding to this as they continue to stand for big corporations and the wealth and against YOU!!!

Inhofe Blocks Sanders’ Amendment Cutting Tax Subsidies For Big Oil Companies

Republicans DON'T want to cut $35 BILLION in taxpayer subsidies to Big Oil & Gas:

Why don't we see these things I post in the so-called "liberal media"? Because it's not liberal, just check out who OWNS the so-called "liberal media" and who is ON the so-called "liberal media" - it's not a bunch of "liberals"! Are these people "liberal"? The people ON the "liberal media" complaining that it's "liberal"...AREN'T LIBERAL - WAKE UP!!! These same people would call C-SPAN "liberal". They call anything that isn't rightwing "liberal". Check out who recently got fired from the "liberal media" - only people who offend the "right" get fired - Helen Thomas and Octavia Nasr. If you offend anyone on the right in the "liberal media", YOU GET FIRED! If you offend real liberal, that's OK. If you offend Israel in the "liberal media", YOU GET FIRED! If you bash Muslims, you get syndicated columns and you're a TV "expert".

"Disgraced" appears 394 times in front of Democrat Eliot Spitzer; 4 times in front of Republican Senator Vitter who had prostitutes wrap him up in diapers and he's still a senator.

As more and more media outlets follow Fox News' lead in covering the manufactured New Black Panther Party/Department of Justice (DOJ) scandal, Media Matters offers three case studies of previous bogus right-wing attacks that, with help from Fox News, went mainstream before being debunked.

1. The New Black Panthers and the pattern
2. The ACORN videos (check out my post here about the HOAX "pimp" video)
3. William Ayers
4. Climategate

The Fox Cycle: From bogus right-wing attack to mainstream news

The Republican Noise Machine

David Brock, the reformed conservative noise-maker, on how the Right has sabotaged journalism, democracy, and truth.

As a young journalist in the 1990s, David Brock was a key cog the Republican noise machine. Writing for the American Spectator, a conservative magazine funded by billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, Brock gained fame for his attack pieces on Anita Hill and President Bill Clinton. Then, in 2002, Brock came clean. In his memoir, Blinded by the Right, Brock admitted that his work was based on lies and distortion, and part of a coordinated smear campaign funded by wealthy right wing groups to discredit Clinton and confuse the public.

Since then, Brock has continued to expose the conservative media onslaught. In his newest book, The Republican Noise Machine, Brock documents how right-wing groups pressure the media and spread misinformation to the public. It's easy to see how this is done.

Fringe conspiracies and stories will be kept alive by outlets like Rush Limbaugh, the Washington Times, and the Drudge Report, until they finally break into the mainstream media.

Media groups like Brent Bozell's Media Research Center have spent 30 years convincing the public that the media is, in fact, liberal. As Brock says, it's all a sham: "I have seen, and I know firsthand, indeed from my own pen, how the organized Right has sabotaged not only journalism but also democracy and truth."
