Poll: 77% of Americans Blame Media for Making Economic Crisis Worse

Posted by iusbvision on January 2, 2009

An Opinion Research poll asked 1000 citizens:

Do you think the financial press is making the economic crisis worse by projecting fear into people’s minds?

Over three out of four said yes.

The breakdown:

Household Incomes: $25k – $35k — 79% answered YES $35k – $50k — 88% answered YES $50k – $75k — 76% answered YES $75k – more — 78% answered YES Demographics: 85% of young adults (18-24 yrs old) answered YES 77% of males and females alike answered YES 65% of blacks answered YES.  

This is made worse because Fox News and CNN’s Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck and CNBC’s Larry Kudlow have been the only electronic media outlets trying to get all of ethe facts about the economy out, rather than using the distortion of economic news and the omission of other news and a tool to get Obama elected. As far as newspapers, Investors Business Daily and the Wall Street Journal deserve some credit, but the rest…. well no point in stating the obvious.

Democrats Plan to Use Physical Force to Keep Burris Off the Senate Floor

Posted by iusbvision on January 2, 2009

They think they are above the law folks, they haven’t even taken office for the new term yet and the laws they are moving to violate are as fundamental as the Constitution itself.

We told you how the Democrats plan on breaking the law to deny Roland Burris his legally appointed Illinois Senate Seat and we also have told you about the lengths the Democrats have gone to deny Governor Blagojevich his due process rights. Blagojevich is a dirt-bag to be sure, but he IS innocent until proved guilty and these actions by the Democratic leadership are illegal and unethical.

(CNN)— Senate Democratic leaders think Roland Burris, Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s pick to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat, will likely show up on Capitol Hill Tuesday for the opening day of Congress, according to a Democratic aide familiar with Senate Democratic leaders’ plans.

They have prepared a contingency plan in case he does, the aide added.

Burris will not be allowed on the Senate floor, according to this aide and a Senate Democratic leadership aide.

The aide familiar with Senate Democratic leaders’ plans said if Burris tries to enter the Senate chamber, the Senate doorkeeper will stop Burris. If Burris were to persist, either trying to force his way onto the Senate floor or refusing to leave and causing a scene, U.S. Capitol Police would stop him, said the aide.
