Remember: The Media Are The Enemy

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 8:26

Here’s a great illustration of how you need to be careful (and have friends watching the setup) if the media interviews you at a town hall.

Then I realized what didn’t feel right… Of course, they’d framed him with  the Hitler posters in the background so viewers would infer that he  supported that position.

I started to walk into the shot to “accidentally” interupt it and quietly inform him what was happening, but they stopped shooting as I took  my first step.

I told the young man what had happened and it was heart-wrenching to  see his expression change from “proud that I said my piece eloquently” to  “damn, I was used as a pawn.”

The media, even when not openly your enemy, is never your friend. What they don’t get wrong through malice they will get wrong through incompetence.

That’s when they bother to show up. The MSM in San Francisco chose to completely ignore the tea party held right in Pelosi’s back yard, even though 5,000+ attended.
