As I was perusing Twitter today, I noted some posts describing a video that ran on MSNBC of coverage of a Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan rally in Dayton, Ohio. According to an article on Breitbart.com (link is here), the video was doctored by MSNBC to make it look as though the crowd at the rally was chanting for Paul Ryan instead of Mitt Romney. You can read the article yourself, but the bottom line is that the video was debunked by not only two people who were at the rally, but also by C-SPAN’s unedited coverage of the rally.
It’s time for MSNBC to go.
You know how you see those ads from cable channels and sometimes broadcast TV channels, saying so-and-so carrier is about to drop our channel, and write or call them to say you want it back? Well, I think it’s time to call your cable or satellite provider and tell them it’s time for them to drop MSNBC from their lineup. And if they don’t, take your entertainment dollars elsewhere.
This is the only way the mainstream media will learn that they cannot manipulate and lie in order to cover for Barack Obama. Hit them where it hurts, in their pocketbook. Boycotts against advertisers only hurt the advertisers. For example, I considered boycotting Johnson Wax because they advertise on Nickelodeon, which has been supporting actor Jason Biggs despite his vile tweets about the Romney family, as well as other obscene material. Biggs is the voice of one of the turtles (I don’t know which one) on the animated show, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Johnson Wax is a family-owned company, and while I disagree with the fact that they advertise on a channel that supports such a vile creature, I will not boycott their products because they produce some pretty good stuff. I won’t, however, watch Nickelodeon. My grandkids watch Nick Jr., which is bad enough because of its shows that pander to Hispanics (“Dora the Explorer” and “Go Diego Go”) and Chinese (“Ni Hao, Kai Lan”), but they don’t watch those shows and Nick Jr. doesn’t accept advertising.
But I digress. Instead of boycotting the advertisers who place ads on MSNBC, boycott the channel itself. Already its ratings are worse than anemic, and Microsoft has divested itself of its part ownership in the channel.
MSNBC can be made to go the way of Air America, and they should. It’s not censorship for wishing they were gone; it’s a desire to clean up the airwaves and try and return journalism to its ideal state, that of reporting just the facts. We don’t want, and will not tolerate, the propaganda and lies coming from the cable news subsidiary of the Democrat Party.
And before you complain about Fox News being the mouthpiece of the Republican Party, I have two words for you: Shepard Smith. And two more: Kirsten Powers. And two more: Juan Williams. And two more: Alan Colmes. MSNBC has no conservatives on its staff of pundits to balance the left-wing tilt. ‘Nuff said.
