Media do not want to talk about immigration?

Ok, this was something that was discussed at the debate recently.

It is for the most part true.

Which makes you wonder why we seem to intend on making the same mistakes over and over again.

We know the truth, no amount of biased media fodder will change the choices that people make.

Yet, here we are again in an election cycle and were once again battling the media and its single nature.

It is difficult to understand how its possible that people really believe the things that come out of their own mouths.

This is a particular truth when ever you watch broadcast Television.

The Secret

There is a little known secret about how to understand what the media are saying on a daily basis.

Now this is going to be previewed as somewhat disingenuous.

But hey were just that way around here, so here is the quick and dirty secret that the media wish you were too dumb to figure out.

Cell phone Wars

You might imagine that with competing Cell phone Carriers larger companies that traditionally over charge its own consumers might want to make some adjustments to its pricing structure.

For years now many of these over priced carriers have over charged for equipment, provided sub standard services, while nickel and diming you every chance they get.

They over charge for bandwidth while spending Millions on Television commercials.

They provide poor coverage then advertise that they provide the best coverage.

The truth is requiring a customer to agree to a two year contract and then charging the consumer for the same equipment they attempt to say is discounted is laughable.

2014 election cycle

Before much longer the election for 2014 will begin to heat up and in some areas it is already getting warm for some democrats that are facing strong challengers, The Television advertising campaigns will be hot and heavy with mud slides everywhere.

The one thing you will probably not hear from the democrats is anyone expressing remorse for voting for the giant debacle that is the Affordable care act.

to debate or not to debate?

That is the question…

The media would have you believe that the most important qualification for
political office is the ability to debate on Television.

The truth is far from that and as usual the media have managed to at least
attempt to convince most of the viewing public that debating is the number
one consideration in choosing a candidate.

The fact is that debating in a hostile environment is likely not very practical at
all, in the last debate one of the candidates decided to skip the event, it did not
seem to matter at all.

What I find interesting is that when you see a debate where the moderators are
biased, and the main agenda is to craft a presentation that creates the impression
that one candidate or another has some magic favor that no one really understands.

They do polls that are subjective but are presented as if they were fact instead of
bad scientific guesses that frequently are skewed in favor of the paying party.

Ask a certain question and you will get a certain answer.

So in reality you really cannot trust a poll, because it is really just a representation
of the opinion of the prevailing party.  Yet you often see Fox news talk about how
this poll or that poll tells the story, but in reality it really only tells the story that
the person who paid to have the poll performed.

Who wants to pay for data that does not support their position and agenda right?

Well that sums it up nicely, because for the most part when you see someone
talk about what a polls says it usually means that they have a dog in the hunt.

When I see one of these bobble heads on the news quote a particular poll, the first
thing I consider is how many people were contacted, what time of day was it, where were
they living, in an area that is mostly democratic, or mostly independent, or mostly one view
or another.

The truth may be stranger than fiction…

Biased Moderators

Does anyone really accept that the pretend moderators, were anything but biased in their reporting.

So what happened, last night, and why did it happen, what we saw was a lot of biased questions, by biased moderators, that was designed to push a liberal agenda, (only 20 percent of America is Liberal) so who really cares about the biased media, well everyone should care because  when you have reporters that do not report, and you have moderators that do not moderate, then what do you have but entertainment?

Perhaps, but over all it is really just biased television.

Can President Obama Win?

If you listen to the liberal media allegedly no one can win the election except for President Obama and no one should even try to win except for the ones that they think will loose, allegedly that is some pretty seriously insulting alleged bias.

The thing is what if its true?

What if the media is only supporting one canidate is that fair and is that right?

Should the media be supporting only one canidate in fact should the media be supporting any canidate at all?

When the media begins to take a side in a nation where about half the people are for one party and half are for the other, it seems like this should not be something that should happen in a free nation.

Should congress pass a law prohibiting the media from publically displaying bias for one presidential canidate or another?

The truth might be closer to that fact than anyone ever though possible, in the past the media was impartial or at least partially impartial.

Recently though we have seen some issues, that could be allegedly something to consider.

 

Should congress pass a law forbiding a media organization from supporting a canidate using Television and or Video to supply that canidate with free publicity?

So the question remains, if the media were prohibited from unfairly supporting one canidate over another one, in an attempt to influence the election process, if the media were stopped from unfairly supporting a canidate, could President Obama still win?

That might be a very interesting situation to have a close look at.

FTC in the wrong?

Is the FTC biting off more than it can chew in trying to regulate the internet,

Broadcast, TV, Cable TV, Subscriber lines, Radio, what will be next, free speech?

will you one day wake up to find that you can no longer express an opinion?

When good men do not stand up to the oppressive idea of ignorant fools how will we ever be free?

The same consumer protection laws that apply to commercial activities in other media apply online. The FTC Acts prohibition on unfair or deceptive acts or practices encompasses Internet advertising, marketing and sales. In addition, many Commission rules and guides are not limited to any particular medium used to disseminate claims or advertising, and therefore, apply to online activi- ties.

Is the above statement accurate?

Seriously is the above statement really accurate, do the same consumer protection laws equally apply to commercial activities in other media online.

The day that broadcast commercials apply the same disclosure statements, that the FTC proposes for internet advertisements will be the day that they have got it right…

The problem is that there are two sets of rules, one for broadcast television commercials and a second one that they allegedly wish to oppress the internet with.

Will this end up being a method to create the “fairness doctrine for the internet”

Do yourself a favor, read and comment on the disclosure proposals for online advertising.

will we find the truth or will we end up loosing our freedom to speak out loud.

from dot com disclosures.

Disclosures that are required to prevent an ad from being misleading

The problem here is this, until the same protection is applied to broadcast television then this is not constitutional.

So, when will be see equal protection for broadcast Television?

To make a disclosure clear and conspicuous, advertisers should:

  • Place disclosures near, and when possible, on the same screen as the trigger-ing claim.
  • Use text or visual cues to encourage consumers to scroll down a Web page when it is necessary to view a disclosure.

When using hyperlinks to lead to disclosures,

?    make the link obvious;

?    label the hyperlink appropriately to convey the importance, nature and
relevance of the information it leads to;

?    use hyperlink styles consistently so that consumers know when a link is
available;

The Media’s Obsession for drama

Is the Media becoming an obsessed and allegedly sick member of your family?

In many ways, the idea that the media is becoming a dysfunctional mirror reality may be more true than you might want to believe.

You watch the constant bombardment of Television commercials on Cable, Satellite, and Broadcast Television stations with themes ranging from drug use to prolific risky behaviors presented as a drama. It boggles the imagination that such social upheavals could become a part of what Americans consume daily as part of their intellectual diet.

If the media were a human with human thoughts they would be Psychotic and in need of serious professional treatment.

Considering this previous statement, what does that say for the public who consume such garbage served up by the media.

Is the media programming our children and young adults to become mass murderers?

When you look at the statement above, most of us would recoil in revulsion, however, for the most part, many of the programs we see on Television are in fact allegedly contributing to the recent problems we have seen with violence and not just gun related violence.

Did you know that allegedly, violence, with just about anything close at hand from rocks to sticks, has allegedly increased over the past year?

Could it be true?

Could the media be contributing to the problems we face as a society?

The answer is allegedly YES…

In many ways, programs that feature, Criminals that engage in kidnapping, Abuse, Rape and a dizzying array of criminal activities, including serial killing and mass murder, just to name a few, these are shows that are on your TV every single day, watched by millions and millions of people.

Is it any wonder, that people are going insane watching this kind of garbage on TV?

Remember the old saying you are what you eat, what if you are also what you watch?

Scary right, well for many people that are borderline on the edge of that fine line between being mentally ill and taking a horrible path that could lead to disaster.

We see it in the news every day, yet, for the most part, it is not presented in a manner that adults should be consuming content, it is presented in a manner that is allegedly manic and depressive, allegedly one might even say that the tone of the production is one of participation, now that folks is sick and disturbing.

So what ever you do, when you watch TV, be careful of what is playing out right in front of you, it could be creating the next, mass murderer and you might be allowing it to come right into your home.

Aarp loud commercials

FCC now can act when TV commercials are too loud.

Will it make any difference, or will they just keep on doing what they want because this is really just an excuse to try to illegally, (allegedly) give powers to the Fcc that they do not have nor should they have.

Since 1960 reports have been coming into the FCC, allegedly, but nothing has ever been done, now we have the CALM act, but will it do any good at all?

I just have one question, why has Fox news not covered this momentous achievement of the Obama Administration?

Well could it be that they are taking money from the very people that the FCC wants to CALM DOWN, sure and why not we are sick and tired of the overly loud TV commercials, that blast your ear drums over and over again or how about this, the practice of reducing the volume on regular TV programming so that you have to turn up your TV each time you want to watch something that is not a commercial.

So why has Fox news not covered this story, or for that matter why has not CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, well has anyone covered it?

So what up, besides the volume, I mean when I watch a TV show and I have to turn down the volume on every commercial because of how loud it is, that is just wrong.

Are you seeing loud commercials?

If you are you should get your eyes checked because we are talking about how loud a commercials and since you cant see, then you better listen up.

From the FCC website,
If You Have a Complaint

Under most circumstances, it is in the interest of broadcasters to use equipment and procedures to avoid “loud” commercials and background noise. If you have a complaint about “loud” commercials and background noise, first try reducing the volume by checking your television and remote control. You may also contact the station(s) involved and explain your concerns. You should identify each message of concern by the sponsor or product’s name and by the date and time of the broadcast.

So, does this cover, cable networks that are really blasting your ear drums, with excessive, noise?

Probably not, but it may be one of the “convenient excuses” that the FCC decides to use in order to take over the internet and cable networks.

However, knowing just how excessive this noise can actually be would it really be such a bad thing that some control is exerted over the programming jerks that constantly bombard us with loud commercials?

Perhaps not, as long as they do not ask for an inch and intend to take a mile.

So what is next, should we regulate how much sugar is in a can of soda?
