Another Media Matters Fail!

Media Matters you would think from their name, would be interested in ALL forms of media misdoings. It's a shame they don't cause there is a LOT of material to be reported from BOTH sides. However, MM sees the below from Fox while ignoring Maddow's little indiscretion.
Fox News on the left, GOP press release on the right.

Fox News cribbed research and graphics directly from a National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) press release.

How about a conservative conventional "wisdom" failure? Once again, your arguments about Obama fail to hold any water.

You're all a bunch of looney tunes!

You are still not paying attention MJ. LIBERTARIAN, ok? You won't catch me or probably anyone else here claiming Bush was great! The money and lives wasted after 9/11 was obscene.

What is particularly bad about Obama's spending is the DEFICIT. You can't keep spending when you have nothing coming in. Tens of millions of Americans are still out of work so there is no taxes being paid from their direction. And Obama keeps giving his cronies tax breaks while bemoaning taxes paid or not paid by corporations! It's hypocritical on all sides but you don't want to see that.

You just concentrate on calling us looney tunes.

And we know Reagan was a big spender but at least he enabled businesses of all sizes to grow which provided us with massive revenues to spend.

We don't have the revenues. It's why we have been borrowing so much from China (and others). THAT is Obama's crime, that he keeps spending revenues that are not there. How else can you explain that our debt is now at $16 TRILLION?

Ungar never addressed the revenue differences. Other than that, he did a good job in this article.

But he like you, are wearing blinders.

Auntie Em said...

Now that we've talked about your little article, are you even going to address the problems we have in the media? That was the subject here.

We need a source that would call out errors on BOTH sides in the media, since they have been failing the American public for quite some time.

It is NOT media's job to promote agendas, whether liberal or conservative.

Auntie Em said...

"News" media I should say. Editorials are different. But the line is blurred too much now.

Oh and to revisit for just a moment your article from Ungar, there is a rebuttal:
