Rolling Stone may not be so hot off the press

We all know that there are controversies, in every day life, sometimes we run into them in a line at a supermarket.

But, we don’t have to take it, you can go to a different line at that supermarket or you can leave and go to the next store right down the road, usually a short distance.

We know that there are people out there that we may not like or get along with but its an easy fix, we can just avoid them or smile and wave as we duck around the corner.

The problem here is that this publication has apparently forgotten its place in society.

There is a place for controversy, we are human after all and yes discussion can often become controversial, however there is a limit to what the public will entertain.  Often times you hear about the idea that freedom of speech does not cover yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Which is both understandable and prudent, the ironic thing is that many times those using that epitaph, do so in a manner and convention that has nothing at all to do with the conversation at hand.

The magazine at the center of this controversy has in the past been a subjective and willing host for all manner of the strange and unusual, however this time, we have what amounts to an accused child killer, who has been subjectively displayed in the same manner as Rock Stars…

This is not controversy this is something that stinks and should be withdrawn.

There is a time and place for discussion, however the idea that American Youth can identify with a Man raised in a war torn part of the world in a part of the world where few Americans can even contemplate the circumstances of his youth.

This idea is offensive.

The truth about what this magazine has become is best left as a stone unturned, As something that should crawl back under said stone…

Unfair Election Result, was it the Media?

Did the media just end election in this nation, Can we even Say that elections are fair?

With the way the Media have taken over the election process, were basically relegated to watching as the “smart” people predict the election results, can we really trust what they tell us even when sometimes they are wrong, they predict the result of an election before half of America has finished voting.

They often predict the results of a state election when only a small percentage of the votes have been counted.

Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America’s top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat.

Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

1. The Media’s Biased Gaffe Patrol Hammered Romney: The media unfairly jumped on  inconsequential mistakes — or even invented controversies — from Romney and hyped them in to multi-day media “earthquakes.” Case in point: the GOP candidate’s trip to Europe and Israel in late July. A Media Research Center analysis of all 21 ABC, CBS and NBC evening news stories about Romney’s trip found that virtually all of them (18, or 86%) emphasized “diplomatic blunders,” “gaffes” or “missteps.”

They quickly tell you what they want you to hear, then ignore the truth from that point forward.

You think that you know the truth but the truth is they know you.

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted the news coverage in an August 2 column, calling the trip “a major substantive success” that was wrapped “in a media narrative of surpassing triviality.”

Similarly, when the left-wing Mother Jones magazine in September put out a secretly-recorded video of Romney talking to donors about the 47% of Americans who don’t pay income taxes, the networks hyped it like a sensational sex scandal. Over three days, the broadcast network morning and evening shows churned out 42 stories on the tape, nearly 90 minutes of coverage. The tone was hyperbolic; ABC’s “Good Morning America” called it a “bombshell rocking the Mitt Romney campaign,” while ABC “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer declared it a “political earthquake.”

None of Obama’s gaffes garnered that level of coverage. After the president in a June 8 press conference declared that “the private sector is doing fine,” the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts gave it just one night’s coverage, then basically dropped the story — nothing further on ABC’s “World News” or the “CBS Evening News” in the weeks that followed, and just two passing references on the “NBC Nightly News.”

They believe that they know best, that they can provide for you better than you can, they feel like they should be able to tell you what to eat, how to think what to say and how to act, if you disagree, you will end up in jail or worse.
