How ACORN Was Framed: Political Controversy and Media Agenda Setting / by Peter Dreier and Christopher R. Martin / 2010
Using the news controversy over the community group ACORN, we illustrate the way that the media help set the agenda for public debate and frame the way that debate is shaped. Opinion entrepreneurs (primarily business and conservative groups and individuals, often working through web sites) set the story in motion as early as 2006, the conservative echo chamber orchestrated an anti-ACORN campaign in 2008, the Republican presidential campaign repeated the allegations with a more prominent platform, and the mainstream media reported the allegations without investigating their veracity. As a result, the little-known community organization became the subject of great controversy in the 2008 US presidential campaign, and was recognizable by 82 percent of
respondents in a national survey. We analyze 2007–2008 coverage of ACORN by 15 major news media organizations and the narrative frames of their 647 stories during that period. Voter fraud was the dominant story frame, with 55 percent of the stories
analyzed using it. We demonstrate that the national news media agenda is easily permeated by a persistent media campaign by opinion entrepreneurs alleging controversy, even when there is little or no truth to the story. Conversely, local news media, working
outside of elite national news media sources to verify the most essential facts of the story, were the least likely to latch onto the “voter

Which proves YOU Justice Dale and Myself, are NOT represented in Washington DC.
Obama was the first President in American history that received the highest amounts from average citizens and yet his policies are continuing most of Bush/Cheney.
Obamacare used the same template as Romneycare and the Bush/Cheney Senior Citizen Prescription Drug bills, which all Americans are still paying the highest prices for medicines.
The Guns, The Gays, The Abortion, etc. et. cetera, are wedge issues used to divide and conquer our ignorant and uninformed masses.
As American media is controlled by that corporate America which provides us with political candidates a well-informed electorate is not possible.$$$$$$$

Not to butt in, butt,
2. Highest amounts of what - not votes. He won with approx 28% of all possible votes in the U.S.
3. Obamacare has nothing to do with what Romney oversaw in Mass. Obamacare is not a health care program, it is an insurance and corporate takeover of the medical payments to hospitals and doctors, i.e. Marxism
4. Correct. More Marxist tacticts.
5. Absolutely correct. Corporate media run by liberals.

Kind of shows just how smart the unions are now doesn't it. Unions in Michigan are now irrevelant in politics because the people got fed up with their thug and self serving interests. Those rich got richer you mention, well, put unions at the top of that list. They did it to themselves and got what they deserved. Unions do not care for anybody but the ones who run it. Reagan had nothing to do with labor unions - he only fixed the so called govt unions (Air traffic controllers) by firing them for walking off the job. He told them he would fire them. They did not believe him. It was a costly lesson that the labor unions had to learn the hard way as well.

I have a quick trigger finger. LOL
Highest amounts of funding by average Americans and yet Obama destroyed the liberals.
Obamacare and Romneycare and the Bush/Cheney Senior Citizens Prescription drugs are all one and the same which puts the HMOs/Big Pharma in control.
BTW: Republican Bob Dole and the Conservative Think Tank Heritage Foundation endorsed the same plan back in the 1990s.
Revolving door for health care aides / 9/15/09 / http://tinyurl.com/q243zq
Some of the most influential aides in the closed-door Senate Finance Committee negotiations over health care reform have ties to interests that would be directly affected by the legislation.
Before she was hired last year as senior counsel to Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Liz Fowler worked as a highly paid public policy adviser for WellPoint Inc., the nation’s largest publicly traded health benefits company.
Mark Hayes, health policy director and chief health counsel for Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), is married to a registered lobbyist for a firm that represents drug companies and hospital groups, although the couple says she doesn’t lobby Grassley’s office.
Frederick Isasi, a health policy adviser to Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), was a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, where his clients included public hospitals and the American Stroke Association.
Kate Spaziani, senior health policy aide to Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), was also a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, although Conrad’s office says she worked as a lawyer — not as a lobbyist — for public hospitals on Medicare issues.

In Washington, The Revolving Door Is Hazardous to Your Health
October 10, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ylx7kp6
On Tuesday, October 13, the Senate Finance Committee finally is scheduled to vote on its version of health care insurance reform. And therein lies yet another story in the endless saga of money and politics.
In most polls, the majority of Americans favor a non-profit alternative -- like Medicare -- that would give the private health industry some competition. So if so many of us, including President Obama himself, want that public option, how come we're not getting one?
Because the medicine that could cure our healthcare nightmare has been poisoned from Day One -- fatally adulterated, thanks to the infamous, Washington revolving door. Movers and shakers rotate between government and the private sector at a speed so dizzying they forget for whom they're supposed to be working.
If you've been watching the Senate Finance Committee's markup sessions, maybe you've noticed a woman sitting behind Committee Chairman Max Baucus. Her name is Liz Fowler.
Fowler used to work for Wellpoint, the largest health insurer in the country. She was its vice president of public policy. Baucus' office failed to mention this in the press release announcing her appointment as senior counsel in February 2008, even though it went on at length about her expertise in "health care policy."
Now she's working for the very committee with the most power to give her old company and the entire industry exactly what they want -- higher profits -- and no competition from alternative non-profit coverage that could lower costs and premiums.
Uncle Bucky William H.T. Bush sits on the board of Health Care with Susan Bayh the Democratic Senators wife.

Normal reporting from the left. Now isn`t the Obama figure somewhere close to $ 7 trillion in the last 4 years?
This is a perfect reason why I have repeatedly said, we do not get represented by our elected officials after they have been in office in Washington more than about 2-3 years. They are so embedded with the lobbyists and special interests, so involved in collecting money for their next run for office(to keep the job) of collecting money, But they simply do the wishes of the ones paying money, rather than representing the peoples interests.
Until we can elect ones with term limits, not able to collect money nor be entertained by the special interests, not taking sight seeing trips overseas (fact finding wastes),not able to sell their votes to any ,even the President or Treasury, maybe we could get a representation of ,by, and for the people and the Country.
#92963 Apr 9, 2013
The President had to pay for Bush's 2 failed Wars Stupid. You just cannot read too well.
#92964 Apr 9, 2013
No one of even the elite can pay what Washington runs thru as spending collectively. If there was any audit of the spending and the waste they throw to their money givers it would be an eye opener . There is no one at any helm with power to stop it. There is no control any more than when Rome was last the great power.
Just think of the some $3 trillion coming in and some $4 trillion spent per year. As mentioned before, this is what we all send Washington collectively. They can not even stay inside what comes in!
#92965 Apr 9, 2013
Quit sending money to Israel, let those deadbeats work.
