    Let the whining begin...

    What is your favorite whine about why Obama won? Foxnews last night was hilarious - as DB said in the Election thread, it'll make you smile to see Rove bitching about how they shouldn't call Ohio for Obama...it was actually pretty funny.

    Just checked Faux's website and they didn't disappoint:

    Five ways the mainstream media tipped the scales in favor of Obama

    1. The Media’s Biased Gaffe Patrol Hammered Romney:
    .
    .
    .

    2. Pounding Romney With Partisan Fact Checking:
    .
    .
    .
    3. Those Biased Debate Moderators:
    .
    .
    .
    4. The Benghazi Blackout:

    5. Burying the Bad Economy:

    Re: Let the whining begin...

    I heard someone this morning (can't remember who unfortunately) say "The mainstream media has spent the past 2 years campaigning for Obama."

    yeah, it's the media....even though Fox News has more viewers than the other news networks combined, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Drudge Report, Breitbart, Wall St Journal....

    Let them live in denial. The country is moving further and further away from the far right and they're making excuses instead of coming to terms with the fact that the faction that controls their party is outdated and has lost touch with the majority of Americans.

    LOL! Excellent! I was hoping to get a few whiners in this thread. I thought it'd be mostly article links or pundits, but posters can be hilarious too!

    I don't know if you are doing this intentionally or not, but someone could spend a career unscrewing your posts.

    Do you really understand what you are saying here, and how wrong your claim is?

    The three networks far outdraw anything on cable. You didn't know that?

    And the 3 networks show what? A half hour of national news a night? As opposed to Fox that's on 24/7 and the Internet that's there all day and Rush and Hannity who are on the radio for several hours a day?

    Someone could spend a career unscrewing what you apparently know.

    So it isn't ratings or exposure, its time.

    Got it.

    Start a dem.....15 mins....a little right.....30 mins neutral........2 hours....leaning right.......7 hours...a right wing volunteer donating tons of money.

    Sure Op. It's not really ratings or exposure after all, it's wearing them out. Kind of like cooking!

    Fox is a crockpot.

    Re: Let the whining begin...

    even my most liberal friends concede the media is for them and surely not against them. but, this message board is as left as you can get, so obviously you're going to deny that on here, but i'm sure if you're honest outside of here, you wouldn't have a problem saying that tv and print media, including Hollywood, is liberal minus FoxNews.
    My faith doesn’t make me perfect, it makes me forgiven.

    "Fox News has more viewers than the other news networks combined."

    It is only more left because many of the far right wingers left after seeing how bad eight years of Bush was for America. And it was the media's fault back then too for Bush's faults.

    Ahhh...it's all starting to make sense now. A guy I work with posted this on FB:

    We have 4 years to destroy the MSM. That's my personal goal. I hope every single employee of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and all newspapers are out of a job in 4 years. You can't trust a MSM journalist to tell you what color the sky is.

    If you think people watching a half hour of national news on a network a night is more exposure than all those other sources, you are dead wrong. The myth of the "liberal media" has become a common misconception so white male conservative American Christians can continue to play the victim.

    It's amazing how conservatives just assume that if the media isn't covering something, then it's some vast liberal conspiracy instead of stopping to think for a second that maybe, just maybe, it's not the earth-shattering big deal that conservative pundits are trying to make it.

    yeah that's it, all those media companies that compete with each other somehow got together and decided what to tell us. And you aren't truly informed unless you watch Fox News.

    What a crock of ****. It shocks me that people believe that nonsense. And it shocks me that they are so critical of the "MSM" but can't see that the sources they used are even more biased. The scrutiny stops at a rather convenient place.

    I kind of assume, he "meant" Fox NEWS has more views than all the network's NEWS combined. If that is what he meant, he worded it poorly because I don't believe for a second that Fox has more viewers (or much more) than any one network.

    You are preaching to the wrong guy, Op.

    I don't give a damn what the media does. I'm just astonished when I read things that are blatantly false, as you have posted.

    It's a handy rationalization. If something damaging appears (or doesn't), it's because the media is in the tank for the Democrats. If something damaging does appear, it's because even the liberal media couldn't ignore it.

    And so on.
