Your Serious Washington Press at work- Chris Cilizza, from the Washington Post:
"Less than one in five voters (19 percent) expressed confidence in Republicans' ability to make the right decisions for America's future while a whopping 79 percent lacked that confidence.
Among independent voters, who went heavily for Obama in 2008 and congressional Democrats in 2006, the numbers for Republicans on the confidence questions were even more worse. Just 17 percent of independents expressed confidence in Republicans' ability to make the right decision while 83 percent said they did not have that confidence.
And, perhaps most troubling for GOP hopes is the fact that just 20 percent of the Post sample identified themselves as Republicans, the lowest that number has been in Post polling since 1983.
That's not to say that 2009 hasn't been a good year for Republicans. By and large, it has been. "
Can you imagine the stupidity, combined with the determination to make anything seem like a victory for the Republican party, that could lead to such a conclusion? And, can anyone still hold with the theory, popular for so long, that this kind of "news coverage" results merely from some mass ego problem on the part of our "journalists?"
The mainstream media today consists almost entirely of large corporate entities (thanks largely to Ronald Reagan and "deregulation".) Their interest lies with the Republican party, their bought-and-paid-for political subsidiary, and they are going to go on twisting everything they can to the Republicans' benefit.
Thank God for the internet- without it there would be no free press to speak of in this country, home of the most propagandized people on earth.
