Projection: "Soviet-Style" Being Used by Media Itself

Regular readers know that I've been waging a campaign for new media to habitually label the Obama endorsing and protecting Mainstream Media (MSM) as Soviet-Style Media (SSM).

But now the media, itself recognizing that my charges against them are warranted, has decided to use the term Soviet-style as it sees fit. By applying the attribute to others they hope to avoid having the label applied to themselves.

Well, I hope you all understand my frustration here. With the notable exception of Nemesis, nobody else has taken on the media for their Soviet-style behavior by that name. 

Ok, here's the evidence, both appearing today.

First Mark Levin (frequently a TEA Party supporter, but hardly one of us) tweeted his facebook entry (with the fb extra length included in brackets):
Even government radio is frustrated with government propaganda. Obama manages the press the way the old Soviet [dictators did.]
and my reply to him (unanswered) was:

Then there was this tweet by Drudge of his  headline  Media attacks 'Soviet-style' publicity policy... but that happens to be the headline from and link to the mainstream Telegraph. So naturally, I repeated my challenge of Levin to Drudge "C'mon Matt...."


I repeat that challenge to the whole of the dextropshere. (If nothing else, go to those replies to Levin and Drudge and retweet them so that those guys get the sense that we are serious.)

Dare to be leaders. It is hardly difficult to state the obvious behavior of our pols and our media. I know that it is hard to be the first; but new nobility is needed. Many more of us can dare calling every twist and turn accurately so that others like us feel comfortable with calling things as they appear in reality.

The media has not yet gotten into full projection mode. If you delay, others will delay too. The media will shortly be calling others what they are themselves if you fail. They may do it anyway, but you can point to my blog entries and our side at least will know the truth.

  1. You are absolutely correct in taking this issue up to those who may be on our side but seem hesitant to recognize the propaganda media (SSM) for the insidious, underhanded and treacherous means they use at the Collectivists bidding.

    It will be very interesting to see if those you have contacted will take up the mantle. It is way past time to bring the SSM under more notice where more folk can really see it for what it is.

    And thanks for the mention!

  2. A friend of mine won't even consider supporting this campaign. Why? He asserts the American public is too stupid. Not ignorant -- stupid.

    My guess is it makes him feel better for all those times he won't 'waste my time' to dispel ignorance.

    And what's his proof of stupidity? He asserts "More than half of Americans think the Soviets were our allies during the cold war. More than half."

    Leaving aside my hard learned skepticism for such a studies, even were it legit, that does not prove stupidity, only ignorance. Ignorance that providing facts would eliminate ignorance sometimes even in the truly stupid. That is the fact he elides. Yet he won't even try.

    Consequences? In his own words: "think of what the answer will be when you say that to G-d. I've not got any specific insight, but I'm gonna guess he's gonna say 'Why didn't you try?'" He is no dummy, has lots of experience in many different things, and can be a really nice guy, but he can be very hard on those he deems to be dimmer than himself.
