Karl Rove siting in Pennsylvania day after election, boasting about how the Bush/Cheney "energy policies" exempted fracking in Pennsylvania from government oversight...and lucky thing: fracking friendly Tom Corbett is now governor!!! Welcome to Texas North! Congratulations, Pennsylvanians!

Oil and Gas Bribery Case Settled for $236 Million

WILK FOX "news" Jr has degenerated into a radio channel that has callers and hosts that just repeat what Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and FOX "news" says, even if it's fact-free.

Rightwing media is so well funded, powerful, and self-contained in their own world with their own loyal viewers, it no longer matters that they "report" false news - it can no longer be debunked.

Hey, did you hear? Obama is spending $200 million a day going to India and they're using 1/10th the Navy:

I apologize to rightwingers for posting FACTS, but:

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."

So, instead of talking about Obama signing the extension of the biggest attack on Americans' civil liberties, The Patriot Act, which BOTH parties suddenly found their was no "gridlock" on, rightwing media has you going around like FOOLS saying Obama is spending $200 million a day and using 1/10th the Navy going to India.
