Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

MSM fiddles as economy burns. Global “warming” real, but economic catastrophe? Not so much.

There is a great column on how the MSM has declared war on budget cuts by Richard Benedetto.  Excerpt:

Now that budget battles have begun in earnest all around the country, those advocating spending cuts, Democrat and Republican, had better not expect any help in furthering their cause from the mainstream news media. In fact, the news media might be their most formidable foe.

How so? Well, now that we know the targets of the cuts, the news media, suckers for a sob story, are already throbbing with carefully orchestrated, heart-rending tales about what devastation those cuts will cause:

Children who won’t be fed; students unable to afford college; classrooms bursting at the seams; cancers that will not be treated; trains that won’t run; roads that won’t be built; families becoming homeless or freezing in their unheated homes; single mothers who will lose child care and job training; food that will not be inspected; water and air that will be more polluted; farmers forced from their land; playgrounds, parks, museums, libraries and health clinics closed …

You know the drill.

He cites specific examples of MSM malfeasance, where they add a face to the purported “victims” of our financial housecleaning.  It seems as though our media don’t seem to recognize the need for budget cuts, with insolvency and bankruptcy not even registering as a blip on their radar.

By contrast…

As Ace notes:

Yes, it is odd — the science is settled but it appears the unavoidable and simple arithmetic is infinitely mutable and open to question.

Why are those who claim that math has suddenly stopped functioning in 2010 not deemed to be “anti-math”? (Or just anti-science, as math is the handmaiden of the sciences.) Why are those who deny fiscal reality not termed Financial Catastrophe Denialists, on par with Holocaust Denialists?

So here we have a genuine, provable calamity on the horizon (and by “horizon,” I mean 3-5 years), and the media fails to take to task those who deny we have a serious problem, permitting them to speak in gibberish and evasions rather than commit to staving off financial Armageddon.

NBC has a Green Week. Think they’ll start a Solvency Week? To similarly raise awareness?

Don’t count on it. While the media is eager to expose what it believes is erroneous thinking that hurts the liberal cause, they have no desire at all to cure erroneous thinking that helps the liberal cause.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. GREEN, Green, green…..when are we going to start seeing some wind powered trains or solar powered 18 wheelers moving things around the country?? Battery powered cars are obviously a solution since it costs nothing to recharge them, ya know electricity comes out of the socket on the wall and it gets to the wall by pure magic.

    I just read an article by a super-progressive named George Lakoff from the HuffPo (got to it by accident) his crap was titled “What Conservatives Really Want”. Talk about being out of touch with reality, if you can control your gag reflex, check it out, just more on what we are up against.

  2. Dux, I can’t control my gag reflex therefore I must avoid such places (can’t get the stench off of me afterward).
    What amazes me is the amount o fossil fuel these “green” leaders are willing to burn in Air Force One or other private jets so they can fly to a photo-op in order to plant one pitiful Charlie Brown Christmas tree…gas prices will likely SOAR as a result of this mid-east crap, and these people who claim to want job creation will still violently oppose increased domestic oil production, then blame Bush for no new jobs, for the sake of their green delusion.
