Media Double Standards

Score another for New Media/Blogosphere

Professor Jacobson: DOING THE JOB THE ALLEGEDLY PROFESSIONAL MEDIA WON’T:
The latest wildfire spreading through the media and blogosphere is that armed neo-Nazis are patrolling Sanford, FL, in anticipation of trouble
if George Zimmerman is not charged in the killing of Trayvon Martin. In what has become a prime example of media malpractice, none of the major
publications spreading the rumors bothered to check with local law enforcement. I did, and the Sanford Police deny any indication of neo-Nazi patrols. . . .For The Daily Beast, Huffington Post,Mediaite, and The Daily News to spread such thinly-sourced claims without verification at a time when racial tensions already are high is irresponsible in the extreme.

“Remember when people were saying that if we left news reporting to the blogosphere we’d just get a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors and spin?”

Help Us , Help Us

Good day to you all . I write this first about us type post with the intention of self-aggrandizement …. Whoa now , just a second you say … But its not what you think . I speak for the promotion of our new website and not of myself . I’ll leave the self promotion to the denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
   As our blog readership grows it is hoped that the growth will manifest itself in visibility for our project. The blog was started as a way for us to supply the site’s editorial page with content on a minute to minute basis without the hassle of constantly updating the site .
   It is working well in all respects but one ; a great deal of our readership is viewing us at the WordPress blog address and it would be much more productive for us if you viewed our posts from the website , thus building our exposure to the wider world of the web .
  

    We need video submissions to get the site rolling and to capture and hold  people’s interest . Please if you or your friends have first person vids of importance tell them about us .
   We are very excited about the ” sunshine project ” as we call it , but we can’t succeed without viewer input . Spread the word and help us spread the light . Thanks , JG

Astroturf Fail …… Again

A MAJOR MEDIA MATTERS FAILURE: #
StopRush turns into #
MediaMattersStopped.
What I notice is that they keep starting
these things up, then people on the right
run with them and don’t let them change
the subject or bring things to a close. In
the old days, they could stir up a three-day
media storm and people on the right
would just sort of hunker down. Now it’s
pushback every time, and the old strategies
don’t seem to be working as well.
Key bit: “The biggest damage has been to
Media Matters, which put its reputation
for intimidating advertisers on the line, and
failed. Media Matters wasn’t defeated by
Limbaugh. Media Matters was defeated by
tens of thousands of conservatives who
recognized that this was not about
Limbaugh or what Limbaugh said.”

H/T to the good Professor

Another example of the astroturfing Left running into the Grassroots with predictable results . You gotta love this ” New Media ” .

How will us ignorant “flyover” clingers ever be able to master this here technology ?

Just watch us and pay the price for your endless underestimation of your opponent .
