Elite Media Mum on Mega-Crowds at McCain/Palin Events

Posted by iusbvision on September 11, 2008

The elite media blows it a lot. They print rumors as fact, they get angles and “facts” from some blogs that have proved time and time again to get information just plain wrong like the DailyKOS. In the same process they don’t check blogs who consistently get it right over 99% of the time.

One of those bloggers who is right the vast majority of the time, well she is more than just a blogger, she is a media empire named Michelle Malkin who has become one of the most powerful and influential people in America.

Michelle has people everywhere and she had people at the McCain/Palin rally which had a crowd that was estimated at 23,000.

A picture speaks 1000 words:

For months we were repeatedly told by the media how Senator Obama attracted large crowds like this one, but since the convention was over most of what we have gotten is scandal and rumor mongering from the press that has been reported as fact, almost all of which has been proved false; much of which has been featured on this web site.

Here is what Michelle Malkin has to say:

The same Obamedia cultists in American newsrooms who didn’t miss an opportunity to tout The One’s ability to draw massive crowds are AWOL when it comes to showing America the massive crowds turning out for McCain-Palin. (Nothing on the front page of the WaPo website; no crowd shots included in the WaPo “Day in Photos” gallery. And, of course, zippo on the front page of the NYT website.)

While Michelle’s words seems a bit harsh. Bloggers and others who fact-check the elite media have grown so sick and tired of the elite media’s blatant bias and apparent contempt for the facts that from time to time that anger is going to surface. The most maddening thing is that most of the nonsense that we see so much in the elite media can be proved wrong by looking up some public records, looking at a piece of raw video on-line or can be found in local media coverage that takes just minutes to look up.

The Washington Post, Newsweek, ABC, NBC, etc have posted a great deal of “journalism” as fact that was already known and reported to be false or misleading. Is 2008 the year journalism died?
