Legacy media to blame for Romney-haters’ ignorance?

You do have to wonder where some liberals get their news.  Caught this comment on the thread to a liberal Facebook friend’s post, dubbing Mitt Romney’s the “Worst. Campaign. Ever.”

He might have a better idea if the legacy media focused on the content of Mr. Romney’s speeches and the specifics of his policies instead of the gaffes of a candidate in Missouri and an awkward joke the candidate made in MIchigan.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Rubin contends, “Obama doesn’t have an agenda for turning around the economy other than to tax the rich, borrow and spend some more and hire some more unionized public employees.

NB:  Tweaked the title.

  1. Dan,
    It appears you’re interested more in pointing out the liberal take on Romney’s campaign and not Romney’s policies themselves.

    Regards,
    Cinesnatch

  2. Fair criticism, Cinesnatch.

  3. Dan is a blogger. Not a reporter. And the point is its the medias job to report on the content off his speeches and what he says policy wise. Instead, reading a newspaper is now like reading the Enquirer and watchin national news is like watching ET. But if Obama says hes going to make things better they report it as tho he has a detailed and sensible plan (even tho he gives no details)

  4. Where does a president who vowed to “fundamentally transform America’ get off calling his opponent an extremist?

  5. We’re certainly hearing more about policy and substantial issues from Romney and Ryan than we are from Emperor O, Blabbermouth Biden and their traveling circus of the stars.

    I will NOT vote for more of the same — which is what their silence on the issues clearly indicates we will get from Team Urkel.

  6. Fair criticism, Cinesnatch.

    Well, actually, Dan, no it’s not.

    Cinesnatch and his Barack Obama Party are spreading lies about Romney’s policy goals and stating that he and Ryan are criminals and murderers who want to push senior citizens over cliffs in wheelchairs.

    And then Cinesnatch is whining about how you’re calling out the lies they are spreading and demanding that you stick to policy.

    Yes, it would be good and decent to stick to a policy discussion. But Cinesnatch and Barack Obama are not doing that; they are screaming, smearing, and pushing lies to destroy Romney and Ryan — and they are depending on your sense of decency and tolerance to allow them to do it.

    Like Breitbart said, “Apologize for WHAT?” Cinesnatch and Barack Obama are disgusting liars who have proven that they will call innocent people murderers and criminals rather than stick to policy. You owe them nothing. They have put themselves outside the bounds of decency, and it is more than fair to call them on it.

    Of course, they would prefer you not. And they will use every trick in the book to make you hamstring yourself.

    Blackstaff. Obama and Cinesnatch have nothing but contempt for rules, moral standards, and the people who follow them, and they have no use for these except to constrain others.

  7. Blackstaff? I never understood the rules to Dungeons and Dragons.

    Comment by Cinesnatch — August 25, 2012 @ 2:33 pm - August 25, 2012

  8. Democrats feel the same way about rules as Leona Helmsley felt about taxes.

  9. #7: “Blackstaff? I never understood the rules to Dungeons and Dragons.”

    You wouldn’t have played by them anyway, which is the whole point of NDT’s comment.

    True. And very meta. 🙂

    BTW, my use of “Blackstaff” is in the context of the Dresden Files. I think Livewire got it, but not sure anyone else did. 🙂

  11. Dan would appear to say the words “Fair criticism”, when he means something like “Obvious criticism” or “Too obvious to spend any time fighting over.”

    Consider Dan’s title, and key sentences:

    Legacy media to blame for Romney-haters’ ignorance? You do have to wonder where some liberals get their news… [a liberal on Facebook] might have a better idea if the [liberal’s] media focused on the content of Mr. Romney’s speeches and the specifics of his policies…

    So Dan is *intentionally*, *explicitly*, “pointing out the liberal take on Romney’s campaign and not Romney’s policies themselves”.

    Can anybody think that it’s somehow an insightful criticism to point out what Dan deliberately meant to do… except Cinesnatch?

  12. A lot of mind-reading going on in this thread.

    Comment by Cinesnatch — August 25, 2012 @ 3:47 pm - August 25, 2012

  13. In your mind, perhaps.

    I resort to plain English.

  14. Off topic…

    Neil Armstrong has passed away 🙁

  15. Making inferences from patterns of behavior is pretty how much how mind-reading works.

    Comment by V the K — August 25, 2012 @ 3:55 pm - August 25, 2012

  16. Tell you what, I’ll write a comment saying “Brazilian cabana boys aren’t to my taste.” Cinesnatch can critique it boldly, saying “It appears you’re more interested in pointing out that Brazilian cabana boys aren’t to your taste and not what Brazilian cabana boys are like themselves.” It will be a fair criticism. 🙂

  17. Reading the FB comment Dan mentions… I don’t think there is anything anyone could say to get that person to actually think. My first clue is the statement that Romney isn’t black as if disagreement with Obama indicates racism (or homohating, misogyny, eating the poor, etc). That’s asinine – not to put too fine a point on it.

    It’s all so tiresome.

  18. A lot of mind-reading going on in this thread.

    There would have to be something there to read.

  19. Pointing out the failings of the so-called Legacy Media is one of the most obvious activities anyone can engage in.

    Comment by Ignatius — August 26, 2012 @ 10:52 am - August 26, 2012

  20. And yet, it needs to be done. Repeatedly. Because it never stops. And even the people who know it well, tend to forget or at least minimize.

  21. On vacation, but I think Khelben before McCoy in ‘Blackstaff;

    That said, Cold Days in November!
