Yesterday a large group of conservative media personalities and activists, along with their respective groups. Have asked Americans to switch off the “biased news media”. They state in an open letter that the establishment media are ”out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda.”
The beginning of the open letter reads as follows:
This election year, so much of the broadcast networks, their cable counterparts, and the major establishment print media are out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda. To put it bluntly: you are rigging this election and taking sides in order to pre-determine the outcome. In the quarter century since the Media Research Center was established to document liberal media bias, there has never been a more brazen and complete attempt by the liberal so-called “news” media to decide the outcome of an election.
Here is the link to the full letter.
The large group includes people like Rush Limbaugh, Brent Bozell (President – Media Research Center), Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin and Tony Perkins (President – Family Research Council). Very prominent names in the conservative media today.
Many Americans have become disgusted with how the media reports on stories. Giving more attention to whether Romney will apologize for a remark that needs no apology. While pretty much ignoring the planned terrorist attacks on American embassies across the Middle East.
And it seems that it is starting to reach a tipping point in this election cycle. Never before have we witnessed such open hostility to a presidential candidate, giving him harsh criticisms, while they ignore the failings opf the incumbent president and ask questions that have nothing to do with the election.
It is truly ridiculous. This is one of the reasons why most people hate the elections, and dislike the media so much. Maybe because of the ridiculousness of this year in the media it may soon come to an end. But that could be a futile hope.
