I’m starting to understand the media.

I think I understand why the media wants Clinton to drop out… I mean, everyone knows why. They have nothing to write about, since this dragging on of the primary is completely predictable. We know what the numbers and results are going to be a week before the primary actually takes place. Analysts talk about the results and pundits make predictions and none of America is surprised. This is why the media wants Clinton to drop out.

And for once, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE MEDIA. I have had nothing to write about. Everyone knows what’s going on long before I get to hear about it, or have time to write about it. I guess I’m not supposed to be relaying news… I’m supposed to be relaying opinions. But still… what opinions can you have on predictable statistics? (Cue Pegleghippie writing a long comment about opinions on statistics…)

Everyone knows Mr. Obama’s won the nomination, and needs to start campaigning for the Presidency. That’s what the news media is hungry for, and me too… I need inspiration.

EDIT: WOW. As I’m writing this post, Clinton gives a good interview. On Cnn’s ‘The Situation Room’, she maintained her position on staying IN the race. (Bad.) But she also said that she would work hard for Obama if he were to win, and that her voters would be ‘in error’ to vote for McCain over Obama.

Mm, tasty. Finally, the innards of the big oily machine are going to come crashing down the GOP.

  1. Great Post,

  2. All I’m going to say is: the stats said Obama was going to win New Hampshire

  3. you still don’t understand. “the media” doesn’t do anything, except in editorials and op-ed opinion pieces. “the media” just report what others are saying. the trick is to know how to read the news. some used to require a course on how to read a newspaper.

  4. If you think ‘The Media’ doesn’t do anything but report the news, you truly are blind. They influence everything. They control your information. They control what you do and don’t read.

    Hold on, just looked at your site, you support McCain… This post was totally unnecessary.

    Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

    And I thought conservatives understood the idea that entities act towards their own economic interests.

  6. go to the post–better yet the Web site @ http://www.straightrecord.com–and check out about us. then tell me you know more about “the media” or even our political leanings. i reassert–too many people just do not know how to read the news.

  7. First of all, I can’t even read your blog because it’s the most horrendously designed pile of poop on a monitor that I’ve ever encountered in my brief two-decade life. Custom-made Neopets pages have better layouts than that.

    Ad hominem aside, your obvious touting of the right-wing is completely blind. But more like a blind person who has never met another human being in his life; he thinks his blindness is completely natural and if anyone else were to say otherwise well, they’d just be fools.

    The right-wing needs to die.

  8. you keep proving my point. too many people just do not know how to read news. your interpretation is just the opposite of what is written. to call us right-wing is just plain ignorant. check out the web site @ http://www.straightrecord.com and “about us.” i know it’s difficult for you, but try.

  9. As difficult as it was for me to actually gaze upon that website for the period of time it took to find and read the page, all I see is more chauvinism from un-proven authority. And it’s not ignorant to call you right-wing or conservative. I read some of what you have written, and it’s all right-wing, it’s all conservative, and it’s all baseless, elitist, and condescending.

    Try open-mindedness. I know it’s difficult for you, but try.

  10. well, if you actually did read it and you came away with that take on it, i can only judge you as functionally illiterate at best. sorry, but i cannot help you. you seem to lock in on symbols and apply stereotypes to them. the site actually is written by very liberal journalists, one who calls himself a socialist. my original assertion stands. i’m done.

  11. straightrecord,
    Reading your site, I must admit you aren’t strictly conservative. You are, it seems, batshit insane. Regardless, your original point, that the media was somehow honest or impartial, still ignores the fact that corporate-owned news has an interest in making more money, and reporting news in such a way as to meet that goal. Nothing objective or fair required.

    REALLY? YA DON’T SAY?

  13. “Dewey Defeats Truman”

  14. Wow. Straight Record really does have an ugly site.

  15. “Dewey Defeats Truman”

    Haha! Good point. I was sitting at Buffalo Wild Wings when I read this comment, and I laughed for a good 5 minutes.

    Wow. Straight Record really does have an ugly site.

    Pro blogger, that one. He’s obviously a top-notch journalist with inside information. (e.g. his About page.)
