Probably because study after study has shown that the media has no interest in reporting the news, has larger losses every quarter because they engage in propaganda instead of reporting, and finally because they have already investigated Palin enough to know what week she got her first period in while ignoring Rezko, Ayers, the lack of true accomplishment by Obama, etc.
Now I'm going to watch This Week with ol'George who will not note that when George Bush raised record money it was corrupting, but will not say a negative word about the $150 million Obama raised this month except to say it rules. Then he will not note Powell was a liar that enabled and helped justify the Bush war in his view, but is awesome now that he endorsed Obama. Finally he will will let the last ten minutes roll out with segments of all the late night and cable comics beating on Republicans with jokes by 7-1 and call it news.
One of the most interesting thing about this election is how how clear the Obama talking points are and how often the media repeats them. I don't know if someone has compiled a montage of every time someone has mentioned the word "erratic" but it would be both sad and amusing.
It is really easy to see the consensus machine at work. I didn't even have to watch the third debate and knew that every slanted organization would go straight to CBS and CNN for the "snap poll" that would show Obama winning. The news organization prefer to show comics pretending to read the news than the real news because the comics say what the anchors think and wish they could say.
Propaganda has become reality. The media will tell us what traffic tickets Joe the Plumber has in what city within 12 hours but can't figure out what Obama did at Annenberg. The media can't report that people not paying taxes will receive checks but can note how many times and what intent it conveys when McCain blinks.
Welcome to our world come 2009. We will print dollars to pay for the distorted reality. It will destroy wealth. Prepare to be poor. I don't fault Republicans because there aren't enough of them and even when there are, they aren't conservative enough anymore. In my view this is more a generational thing. The Boomer Republicans are often nothing more than RINO's. They share the same generational blind spot. They have been bankrupting the country and will continue to do so.
