Look to media for why GOP message failing

info@islandpacket.comMarch 19, 2013 

I keep hearing that Republican leaders are still trying to figure out why they couldn't get their message to the American public during the last election.

Are they that far out of touch? The major reason is quite simple: The mainstream media -- newspapers and TV -- will not allow it. They'll prevent it by any means possible.

WatchNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and FOX News and read major newspapers. Only on FOX is one able to see both sides of key news stories. We get a full perspective. Like it or not, FOX -- in their pure news segments -- gives facts, all sides. Time and again, we see left-wing media distort the truth, outright lie or not even report major stories if the facts don't support their ideology. This leaves the majority of the public misinformed and ignorant of the issues. Brainwashed.

The American media are the enemy of the people. By deceiving us, lying to us and refusing to report on key issues when the truth harms their ideology (as in Hitler's Germany, Communist Russia and China), they have proved this. When one adds the fact that our educational system, from grade school through our universities, has been taken over by the radical left, who have been brainwashing our young people for years, one can understand why the American people go to the polls ignorant of the truth. The evidence is very, very clear, and our country is suffering for it.

The American people aren't stupid, just misinformed.
