Of course , people like Dana didn’t see any hope or change , because she was one of those conservative pundits masquerading as a journalist , with her head up her ass. If the ACA , which they loved referring to as Obama Care , wasn’t hope and change , what was it? Millions of people who didn’t have health insurance , due to preexisting conditions , now had insurance. To them , it was hope and it was change , compared to the system that previously existed. But Dana and her conservative cronies in the mainstream media , were too busy making up death panels and others conspiracies about the ACA , never bothering to tell their audience that the real death panels are and always have been , and always will be , the private insurance companies , and that the mandate goes all the way back to the conservative think tank , the Heritage Foundation.
They attacked it for years , claiming it to be socialized , government-run health care , and that it was unconstitutional , even as the Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal it countless times. Now we find out in an ironic twist that Republicans – most notably , conservatives like Tomi Lahren – who have been openly condemning it for years , are using it.
In another note of irony , it’s been more than six months since Trump became president , and they still haven’t been able to repeal the law , nor come up with a decent one of their own. Yes , look at where you are now. Stuck with Obama Care. At least for now.
The purpose of the news media is to objectively report news , and to hold government accountable. The news media these days are not interested in truth or objectivity ; their main objective is to make a profit , even at the expense of truth and accuracy , so it’s up to us to be their watch dog. That’s why we have organizations like Media Matters.
Dana’s problem with the mainstream media – AKA the so-called liberal media – is that it doesn’t tow the Conservative line one hundred percent. Therefore it has a “liberal bias.” The idea that just because there may be a few more left leaning news outlets , there is a huge liberal conspiracy in the media , and that sources like Fox News , The Blaze , and other Conservatives outlets , are the few sole bastions of true and unbiased news. It’s absurd. The Blaze websites bi-line is Truth Lives Here , which is ironic , since it frequently publishes click bait articles , and misinformation taken from other questionable Conservative news sources. Hardly a bastion of truth.
Dana Loesch complaining about mainstream media bias is not only ironic , but comical , in light of the fact that everyone at The Blaze – herself included – are lap dogs for the Republican party establishment elite. She’s also a lap dog for the NRA.
There are plenty of ridiculous Liberal Logic 101 memes on the internet , but this one perfectly demonstrates the ‘alternate reality’ in which the typical liberal hating wing nut resides.
Liberals were not that concerned about Ebola , because it wasn’t an outbreak. A total of three Americans contracted the disease , and recovered. The fourth , a Liberian national , by the name of Thomas Duncan , died after contracting the disease. But Conservative media , played the non-epidemic as if it were the end of civilization as we know it , blaming the president at the time – Barack Obama – of allowing the disease into the country on purpose , because he hates America , because it’s a racist country.
Why doesn’t Conservative media talk about gun violence? That’s a real epidemic. An ongoing epidemic that kills an estimated 30,000 Americans annually. Yet , Conservative media is completely silent on the issue. Why? Does the right hate America? Would it be too extreme to say that they hate their country , like Bryan Fischer absurdly claimed that Obama intentionally allowed Ebola into the U.S. because he hates America and believes it needs to be punished for its racism?
There were dozens of incidents in 2014 where children were accidentally shot because of the negligence of an adult. Children who got their hands on loaded weapons and accidentally shot themselves or others. Why weren’t Conservatives in the media talking about this? Where was the outrage? Where was their demand to regulate guns? There were hundreds of incidents in 2014 where children were murdered with a gun. Again , there was no demand to regulate guns , but they wanted to enforce travel bans because one person died of Ebola? The media , particularly the Conservative media , believe that it’s more important to spread fear about a disease that killed one person in America ( who actually wasn’t from America ) , and yet they have nothing to say about the dangers of children dying by guns every year?
Who really have their heads buried up their asses? It sure as hell isn’t liberals.
George Bush was given a CIA intelligence briefing that Bin Ladin would most likely soon attack the U.S.. He ignored it , and as a result , 9/11 happened. It’s amazing to me that Bush apologists like Rudy Giuliani are willing to ignore his incompetence , absolve him of any responsibility , and shamelessly claim that he kept America safe. Never mind 9/11 , the Iraq and Afghanistan wars , the numerous domestic terrorist attacks , and the multiple embassy/consulate attacks that occurred during his watch ; none of them count in their twisted logic. But Benghazi is worse than any of them because … something.
Democrats didn’t politicize 9/11. Democrats and Republicans united , because America was attacked. Too bad Republicans and Conservatives couldn’t do the same after Benghazi. All they cared about was using it as a means of discrediting a president they hated , so they created a conspiracy around it , including the bullshit claim that he allowed it to happen.
Like the main stream Conservative media did with Obama’s birth certificate , Benghazi , the so-called IRS scandal , Solyndra , Fast And Furious , Health Care reform ( Obama Care ) and a host of other non scandals? The entire real lame stream news media , including Fox News , Breitfart , The Gateway Pundit ( AKA the Stupidest man on the internet ), News Max , News Busters , The Blaze , Rush Limbaugh , Accuracy In Media , World Nut Daily , Media Research Center , and Conservatives News Service whined incessantly over everything Obama said and did. Not just about the birth certificate , Benghazi , and Fast And Furious , but absurd nonsense about gun confiscation , executive orders , saluting a marine with a latte in his hand , wearing a tan suit , how many vacations he and his family took , how much he golfed , to what he put on his hamburger.
Can we expect a similar type of treatment toward Trump from the so-called liberal media? Not likely. In fact , we’ve already seen them fawn over him when he bombed Syria.
For a party that supposedly benefits from voter fraud time after time , they sure as hell didn’t benefit during the last election. Trump and some of his supporters claimed that it was most likely rigged , even though he became the president. Conservatives have been complaining about voter fraud for years when they lose an election , with no evidence. What they won’t tell you is what voter restriction laws are really all about. That’s the real fraud.
