Corporate Media Fails to Separate Fact from Fiction at GOP Convention

Interview with Peter Hart, activism director with the media watch group FAIR, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, conducted by Scott Harris

As the Republican National Convention was preparing to launch in Tampa, Fla., the specter of tropical storm Isaac threatened to wash out the proceedings. But after a one-day delay, the televised nominating convention got underway with the focus shifting from the weather back to the predictable rhetorically heavy speeches. while Americans widely expect politicians to bend the truth to put themselves and their party in the best possible light, the GOP convention this year was notable for the long list of exaggerations, misleading statements and blatant lies catalogued by a small army of fact-checkers, many on the web.

The Post 9-11 US Satanic Law Fakirs in Congress & Senate joyfully Stick it to America

by The Post 9-11 US Satanic GOP Law Fakirs Wednesday, Sep. 12, 2012 at 4:10 PM

The Post 9-11 GOP US Satanic Law Fakirs in Congress and Senate (Ron Paul excluded) joyfully Dance on The Graves of Soldiers, who died in Afghanistan and Iraq, while they joyfully, Fanatically, Unashamedly, Satanically, Sadistically, and Ritually cut Veterans Health Care, Intentionally have Veterans thrown in The Streets when they return from these Post 9-11 CIA Sponsored Wars, Shift High Paying Jobs Overseas so there is no chance that Veterans can have a Normal Civilian Life, Cut Funding for VA Hospitals so those Veterans Wounded during The CIA's Post 9-11 Wars Abroad cannot adjust to Civilian Life, Shed Crocodile Tears for those who Died in The Global Satanic Government's (The CIA) 9-11 Al CIA Duh (The same Al CIA Duh The CIA is Funding in Libya, Iraq Car Bombings, Syria, Iran, Southwest Pakistan, London 7-7, Madrid, Mumbai, etc.) Terrorist Attacks in America, joyfully Dancing on The Graves of those The CIA Al CIA Duh Terrorist Network Murdered on 9-11, so they could have their Post 9-11 War on Islam Gory Satanic Ritual Serial Murders of Civilians Abroad, and CIA Devil's Drone HK (Human Killers) Murder anyone, anywhere, for any reason. There is nothing American and Everything Satanic about These GOP US Satanic Law Fakirs in Congess and Senate. And of course they are also having The Constitution Shredded at WARP Factor Speed, along with your Freedoms so they can have The Post 9-11 TSA Sex Offenders Grope You The People at Will, not to Mention Purchasing Millions of Hollow Point Bullets so The can Murder You the People in Your Beds. And of course The GOP US Satanic Law Fakirs in Congress and Senate are paying for these Post 9-11 War on Islam Gory Satanic Ritual Serial Murders of Civilians Abroad, by Embezzling Public Funds, and Using these Post 9-11 Embezzled Public Funds to pay for these Post 9-11 Multi Trillion Dollar Gory Satanic Ritual Serial Murders Abroad Programs. These GOP US Satanic Law Fakirs in Congress and Senate Dance of The Graves of their Victims, Those who they Tricked into to Fighting these Post 9-11 Wars Abroad, and those Murdered (Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Somalia, Nigeria, Mali, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Latin America, etc.) by their Post 9-11 Gory Satanic Ritual Serial Murders Abroad. And if they can't dance on the Graves of those they Murdered, they will certainly try to make sure you live the rest of your lives in Poverty and Tyranny.

Corporate Media = FAIL

by crazy_inventor Wednesday, Sep. 12, 2012 at 11:23 PM

but then again alternative media that covers such circuses insted of issues that matter = FAIL too

Chris Hedges (issues that matter to the working poor are absent from the airwaves).wv

Chris Hedges on _Empire of Illusion_.wv

new gallup poll shows Television dying.wv

The Revolution Will not Be Televised.wv

by spending air time covering these circuses OR spending time critiquing the corporate media's coverage of these circuses, we give legitimacy to these circuses while wasting that time which could have been used to cover issues that matter to the working poor

such media is performing a gatekeeping function
