Wonder Why MSM Hates Fox News … 81% Polled Get Their Midterm Election News from Cable Channels Like Fox News
It is the continued death of the old media, so went the dinosaurs, so goes the old and tired MSM.
It is the MSM’s and LEFT’s worst nightmare … this can’t be good news for the liberal slanted MSM nor the Democrat party, more people are turning to the 24 hour cable news networks for the election news and out of the cable news networks, Fox News is the most watched. The trend is only going to continue away from the old MSM do to a liberal slant and an obvious agenda. This does not bode well for Democrats in 2010, 2012 and thereafter …
More people are getting their news about the upcoming election from cable television than any other source, and from Fox News more than any other cable channel, according to a POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll released Monday.
The poll found that 81 percent of those polled get their news about the midterm elections from cable channels, like Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or their websites, compared with 71 percent from national network news channels, such as ABC, NBC or CBS, and their websites.
Among cable news channels, Fox was the clear winner, with 42 percent of respondents saying it is their main source, compared with 30 percent who cited CNN and 12 percent who rely on MSNBC.
FOX NEWS wins the cable wars hands down in election news coverage for the American people. Think Obama and Democrats are beginning to sweat?
When you use cable TV news channels to get news about the election, would you say you are mainly getting information from CNN, Fox News, MSNBC or some other cable news channel or website?
Mainly Fox News………………………………………….42%
Other cable news channel/website…………………….9%
Full polling results here. Check out page 9 of the polling data, what a shock, the people have no idea who Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow are. Maybe because MSNBC has no viewership.
One more bit of data from the poll regarding Barack Obama’s re-election. Only 38% think he deserves reelection.
Now, thinking again about Barack Obama –
20. Do you think President Obama has performed his job as President well enough to deserve re-election, will you consider voting for someone else, or do you think you will vote to replace Barack Obama?
Will consider voting for someone else……………………………..13%
Will vote to replace Barack Obama…………………………………44%
Jeremy Stoppel, a Northglenn High School student in Colorado was told by school security to stop flying the US flags on his truck. He was told to do so because the high school focuses on diversity and she doesn’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. WTF. Maybe some one should tell the moron security guard that the United States flag represents diversity and the greatest melting pot ever known.
So the delusional concept of making others feel uncomfortable trumps the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech? Who is making who feel uncomfortable?
Could some one please tell me what country we live in again and how it can make any one uncomfortable seeing the America flag flying? What’s next, we are not allowed to fly the American flag on Flag Day? Just curious does this high school have an American flag atop their flag pole? What is wrong with people who actually think that the Red, White and Blue flag of the United States of America would make people feel uncomfortable. Those that actually do, might want to think about living some place else.
August 30th, 2010 Daily Commentary
* A huge number of people attended the “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial on the 28th. Dana comments on the content and Glen Beck himself.
Daily Commentary – Monday, August 30th, 2010 – Great Turnout for Glen Beck's Rally in DC [2:06m]: Download
Alveda King, Niece of Martin Luther King Jr, Speaks at Beck’s “Restoring Honor” Rally on Anniversary of ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech
“I have a dream too” … So said the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. at the “Restoring Honor” rally.
As the liberal MSM and Al Sharpton condemn Glenn Beck for daring to have his “Restoring Honor” rally of the anniversary of MKK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, I wonder how they will respond to this “Restoring Honor” speaker? Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., spoke today at the “Restoring Honor” rally honoring her uncle on the 47th anniversary of his “I have a Dream”.
This is a must see video … “I too have a dream too, its in my genes.”
“Faith, hope and love are not dead in America …. We still Trust in God!”
This must have driven the liberals and the Al Sharpton brigade to have Alveda King speak at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally. As American Power stated, the libs heads must have exploded to have such an event occur. It’s kind of hard for ReverendAl and the bias and hateful MSM to claim that the Beck rally to dismiss it with MLK Jr’s niece attending. The following is from ABC News:
On the 47th anniversary of her uncle’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, politician and activist Alveda King has joined conservative commentator Glenn Beck at the same spot to bring people together in paying tribute to America’s soldiers and “restoring honor” to America.
King, the niece of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. and daughter of his brother activist A. D. King, is currently the director of African-American outreach at the pro-life group Priests for Life and has recently stepped into the spotlight after several appearances on Beck’s radio program.
“I am attending this rally to help reclaim America,” she told “Good Morning America’s” Ron Claiborne today from Capitol Hill. “I’m joining Glenn to talk about faith, hope, charity, honor. Those are things that America needs to reclaim. Our children need to remember to love each other how to honor each other, their parents, God and their neighbors. I agree with Glenn on all of those principles. So that’s why I’m here. For me it’s principles over politics.”
Feisal Abdul Rauf, Ground Zero Imam Says US Worse than al-Qaeda … “United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaida …”
Let the following be a lesson to all … always question and do not ever let anyone tell you to stand down when you know something does not pass the smell test.
Remember Feisal Abdul Rauf, the so-called moderate Muslim imam behind the controversial mosque near Ground Zero? It would appear that some new audio has been discovered where Feisal Abdul Rauf is telling folks overseas that the United States has been far more deadly than al-Qaeda. Hmm, so this is the moderate that is supposed to be a bridge? A bridge to what exactly?
This so-called moderate Muslim who wants to build a mosque near Ground Zero under the guise of peace and understanding actually thinks that the US and al-Qaeda are similar. Unbelievable. Nice job politicians and liberal MSM of vetting this one.
“We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non Muslims,”Feisal Abdul Rauf said at a 2005 lecture sponsored by the University of South Australia. After discussing the U.S.-led sanctions against Iraq under Saddam Hussein, Rauf went on to argue that America is to blame for its testy relationship with Islamic countries.
“What complicates the discussion, intra-Islamically, is the fact that the West has not been cognizant and has not addressed the issues of its own contribution to much injustice in the Arab and Muslim world.”
So this is what a moderate Muslim talks like? Or is it as the Jawa Report states and that Feisal Abdul Rauf is nothing more than an extremist wolf in moderate sheep’s clothing? Iguess we now know why he wont call Hamas a terror group, eh?
Read much, much more by Pam Geller at Atlas Shruggs. Yes, this is the so-called moderate Muslim that wishes to build a bridge between Christianity and Islam. It would appear more like a one way road to Islam. Visit Atlas Shruggs and rwead the too numerous quotes and get a real perspective as to who is behind the “near” Ground Zero mosque.
The media frenzy to destroy good, decent Americans who oppose a 15-story mega-mosque on Ground Zero is rabid. Even for them. Despite red flags everywhere and the nationwide grief caused by this grotesque act of Islamic supremacism, why isn’t the media doing its job, investigative journalism?
Instead, the morally ill media is in full-on operational smear machine mode in the raging war of ideas, the information battle space, the objective of which is to erect the Ground Zero mega mosque. Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil (Thomas Mann). Whilst the NY Times front page spins interfaith yarns into PR gold faster than Rumpelstiltskin and accords godlike status to Imam Feisal Rauf, new audio surfaces. Here are a couple of soundbites of tolerance.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf: “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaida has on its hands of innocent non Muslims. You may remember that the US-led sanctions against Iraq led to the death of over half a million Iraqi children. This has been documented by the United Nations. And when Madeleine Albright, who has become a friend of mine over the last couple of years, when she was Secretary of State and was asked whether this was worth it, said it was worth it.
Isn’t it fantastic that the US tax payers are paying $16,000 to have this imam to spread his “moderate” message.
So the USA killed 500,000 children, the Astute Blogger debunks the lie … what happened to their parents?
A special shout out goes to Jim Geraghty of NRO and his comment that in light of Feisal’s words above, “everyone who lectured us about how moderate and sensible Imam Rauf is is invited to eat their words with the sauce of their choice.” Amen brother!
The Near Ground Zero is a Bridge to What … Mosque Planner Daisy Khan Says Opposition Goes “Beyond Islamophobia, It’s hate of Muslims.”
MUSLIM TOLERANCE AND COMPASSION
THE BIG LIE … The near Ground Zero Mosque is meant to bring peace, understanding and a bridge between religions, REALLY?
Eventually in the end the truth comes out. Billed as a project of peace and understanding, “We the People” are beginning to see exactly what we suspected all along. So if you are outraged and do not believe that a mosque should be built near Ground Zero, the site of 9-11 where nearly 300 innocent people were murdered, you are now branded an Islamophobia and you hate Muslims. These are the words from mosque planner Daisy Khan,“It’s beyond Islamophobia. It’s hate of Muslims.” Oh the tolerance from the Muslim Daisy Khan who cannot accept that people actually might object, not to the practice of the Muslim religion, but to the building of a mosque so close to Ground Zero.
So this is the tolerance and compassion that we can expect? Nice PR Daisy, where did you get your lessons from BP Oil?
A leader of a planned Muslim community center near Manhattan’s Ground Zero compared opposition to the project to the persecution of Jews, in comments that could add to the controversy over the center’s proposed site.
“We are deeply concerned, because this is like a metastasized antisemitism,” said Daisy Khan, who is spearheading the project with her husband, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. “It’s beyond Islamophobia. It’s hate of Muslims.”
