Liberals' Answer to Rush Limbaugh---The Crockumentary

Not content with the LWM's manipulation of the news, the moonbats follow Michael Moore into true nutjob territory:

With Who Killed the Electric Car? liberals have announced they may have found their antidote to talk radio -- the movie documentary.

Trying to counter Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity with Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo obviously isn't having much success. But after the example of Fahrenheit 911, liberals have now hit the screen with a barrage of documentaries -- The U.S. versus John Lennon, Al Franken: God Spoke -- with lots more to come.

The documentary is the perfect medium for the liberal message. It's centralized, easily manipulated, and based on visual imagery rather than rational thought. Rush Limbaugh succeeds so well on radio because of the clarity of his analysis, not because of what he's wearing or how he looks on camera. (Remember how poorly Limbaugh did with his own TV show.) Talk radio also allows listener feedback. The main attraction is the contribution of callers and the give-and-take with listeners.

With the documentary, the filmmaker controls the show without interference from the audience. Interviews can be edited and sooner or later pretty talking heads will prevail.


Of course, the real weakness in this plan is that people actually need to seek out this drivel. If they wouldn't listen to it for free on Air America, or watch it for free on the Big Three newscasts, what makes them think they'll pay $10 to be bored and propagandized?

Since it will waste still more Lefty cash which would otherwise be spent on moveon.org and weed, I'm all for it.

Kind of a moot point don't you think? After all -- regardless of the slant, most news media does not allow for much in the way of listener/user feedback.

Besides, political debate is a thing of the past. The name of the game is to squelch, shout down, bankrupt, smear, slander and deny the opponent access to the political process. Both sides do it.

In that kind of political environment, the only way to be heard over the noise, is to employ the most effective, proven, time tested methods available. Both sides *must* do it.

Whereas you neo-cons got to watch that piece of right-wing propaganda "The Path to 9-11" for free on the public airwaves.

I wonder who really controls the discourse and the media in this country- the party in power or the other party?

You think Rush Limbaugh is an example of rational thought and "clear analysis"?

Apparently those so-called lefties aren't the only ones who have been smoking weed.

Marijuana doesn't have anything on that Bible thumpin' upside the head... which seems to have left an indelible mark.

As Tank Girl would say, "that was swell, but it's gone down now."
