Don’t Buy The Old Media’s Lie About Obama’s Inevitability
All of a sudden, some conservatives are panicky. Why?
I think the real reason people on the right are nervous is because they still believe the old media.
As John Nolte of Breitbart.com says… DON’T!
Over the past ten days, what hasn’t surprised me is how the corrupt media created its own pro-Obama reality coming out of the conventions. What does surprise me is how this coordinated psy-ops push is working to panic a lot of conservatives.
Saturday afternoon I signed off for the rest of the weekend feeling pretty good about where things were. Obama’s convention speech was a dud, the latest jobs report was a catastrophe, and Romney had sharpened his message considerably.
Then I wake Monday morning to find conservatives who should know better screaming that the sky is falling.
Don’t fall for it.
Let’s start with what the media did to create their own reality around the conventions.
There’s no doubt whatsoever that the Democratic convention was far less successful than the Republican convention. Obama’s speech was a dud and the floor fight over God and Jerusalem was the biggest convention debacle of my lifetime. Immediately following these two events, you then had the release of a disastrous jobs report.
But what did the media do? Well, they did what they always do: create an alternate reality. While Obama’s dud speech, the convention floor fight, and the jobs report received some news coverage — no lasting narrative was created that could define or damage Obama. All three stories were quickly killed by a coordinated push (started by Politico) to manufacture a narrative that said Obama’s post-convention bounce is a genuine lead and even “high-placed” campaign officials (who won’t go on the record) believe Romney is losing.
