Conservative Media’s Propaganda Problem

I second what Dan McCarthy says here:

That spirit of fair play is missing from the reporting that one finds among many well-funded right-wing websites. I’d have a degree of respect for the Washington Free Beacon if its opposition to Hagel had been couched in well-written polemical essays of the sort once produced by Norman Podhoretz. Those kinds of essay can also be dishonest in the particulars, but the genre itself indicates some degree of good-faith self-awareness—awareness of the difference between playing the role of a prosecutor and that of a judge, juror, or bailiff.

The problem with right-wing journalism today isn’t that it features too much opinion but that its reporting is all slant.

This seems to be a problem that happens regardless of the party in power. When there is a Republican administration, many conservative media outlets seem to consider it their responsibility to act as its boosters, almost regardless of what it does, instead of working to hold it accountable. If that means redefining conservatism or spinning bad news to suit the temporary needs of the administration, then that is what often happens. When there is a Democratic administration, the same outlets may want to hold it accountable, but they also often feel obliged to endorse a fantasy, alarmist version of administration actions that make it much more difficult for non-partisans to take their objections and criticism seriously. The anti-Hagel campaign promoted a lot of nonsensical, alarmist claims in the name of transparency and oversight, but in doing so it was just continuing a pattern of bad-faith attacks that have been going on for over four years. It’s a bad habit based partly in the need to outrage and horrify the audience in order to boost their numbers, but it’s also based on the assumption that the other “side” is so biased that they are released from their obligations to be accurate and fair as well. The belief seems to be that “all’s fair in propaganda,” which is exactly what conservative media outlets should not be trying to produce in the first place.

Once again Carol you prove what a clueless twit and liar you are. Those of us on the left don't have any hatred for those who achieve success, it's how you do it that makes the difference . A high school friend of mine came up with an idea for a product and started making it in his parents' garage and steadily expanded, hiring workers and when he sold the business became a very rich man. You may have heard about it, Yankee Candle which employs thousands of workers in its manufacturing facility and its retail outlets across the country and in Europe. Do I begrudge him his success? Absolutely not, he provided employment not only with his company but with other companies that sprung up in competition.
Someone like Mitt Romney however made his money taking over companies, loading them with debt, raiding employee pensions , laying people off and shipping jobs overseas.
Your assertion that those on the left are devoid of religious belief is also totally false. Most of the people I go to church with are liberals. My son is an unabashed liberal and even when he's away at college he gets on the Metro on Sunday to attend services at St. John's on Lafayette Park or goes to a Catholic service on the CUA campus.
Your "societal standards" are code for people like you wanting to force your religious bigotry on others.
Jimmy is a mealy mouthed punk who simply parrots every other ignorant right winger on this topic.
Aside from a near monopoly on the medium priced retail market, Yankee Candle has become a huge fundraising item for schools. It's a tremendous organization.

Former President Bill Clinton said Bain Capital's record was "sterling". Senator Cory Booker (D) said Obama's misleading ads about Romney's business dealings were "nauseating". The liberal media jumped all over Obama and his campaign ad for lying about Romney killing that woman who died of cancer 5 years after she secured another job and had health benefits.

Maybe you should have taken this into consideration before believing what Obama told you to believe because he wanted to win at all costs.

All invsestors spend their own money in an effort to try and save foundering businesses. Romney was the only one demonized for it.

Far left radicals run the democratic party now. It is they who give moderates like yourself and your friends a bad name.
