One tiny ray of light in a dark sea of misinformation


Not content to leave Team Obama all by themselves in trying to tie Romney to Mourdock, USA TODAY runs the story—Obama team tries to tie Romney to Mourdock. Wasn't it considerate for USA TODAY to put on their website—as a part of the story mind you—Team Obama's full campaign advertisement. It doesn't say it's a paid advertisement so it's a blatant case of favoritism displayed by a shameless MSM spin source.

The Huffington Post—another MSM spin source—has the story that Team Obama is pressing Romney to fully disown Mourdock. Yes Romney, if Team Obama wants you to fully disown Mourdock, you should listen to them, after all I'm sure they've got your best interests at heart. Just do what they say and everything will be alright.

There are hundreds of these stories. I just can't seem to get away from them. Team Obama's commercial trying to tie Romney to Mourdock might have gone unnoticed in most of the country, but luckily for Team Obama, the mainstream media picked up this ball and carried it right through the goalposts. Ironically enough, if the sight of a referee running the ball is somewhat disconcerting to you, it means you probably watch a lot of football and not much politics. By the way, that makes you a "low-information voter."

Well, the big winner for me is a heart-rending story from CNN. It has everything. There's a pregnant 12-year-old hooked on heroin, and the kicker is that the father is ...the pregnant girl's own father, who hooked the girl on heroin so that he could rape her more easily. Still think this baby is what God intended Mourdock? Romney?
(CNN) - The pregnant 12-year-old girl was strung out on heroin and looked like a walking skeleton when she arrived at the hospital. The conversation that followed, said Phoenix police chaplain John South, has stuck with him ever since.

“Do you know who the father is?” South recalled asking her.

“She said, ‘Yes, it’s my biological father. He’s the one who hooked me on heroin so he could continue to rape me whenever he wanted to.’ ”
Well, I for one am satisfied. Don't twelve-year-old pregnant heroin addicts always refer to their fathers as: "biological" fathers? So there you have it. Mourdock thinks a 12-year-old heroin addict pregnant with her own father's baby is the will of God and Romney agrees. How can you possibly vote for Romney now? Apparently CNN has also joined the Obama Team and is running the ball.

There's a lot of talk this election cycle about "low-information" voters. I'll describe a "low-information" voter and you guys in the MSM tell me if I nailed it. A low-information voter is a person that plans to vote for Romney.

These voters are low-information because they've apparently ignored literally millions and millions of stories where you guys in the mainstream news have gone miles out of your way to campaign for Obama.

It's not all bad though. There are still one or two honest news sources out there. They're few and far between. You want to know what's worse than being a low-information voter? It's being a false-information voter. In every area of human endeavor—science, history, economics, trade, politics, technician on a bomb-squad—having the wrong information is more damaging than having no information at all. So for all the low-information voters out there who don't read the news because they legitimately believe that mostly it's a dark sea of misinformation, here is a tiny ray of light to guide you safely into harbor:
President Barack Obama's appearance Wednesday night on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" was a long, free, smiley-face ride through a land of pattycake questions teed up one after another to make the guest look good and mock his Republican opponent.

Will someone tell me why more people aren't concerned about entertainment shows with audiences measured in the millions being used this way for what is essentially propaganda?
