Those Crazy Conspiracy Theories

This story got me thinking.

Everyone on the 'progressive' side of the negotiation table at this stage likes to spew venom about that god awful biased Fox news spreading their filthy right wing biased lies.

Which they do, don't get me wrong.

But they don't like it when you bring up shit like this; they don't like to be reminded that the political class of both parties have multi million dollar professional mouthpieces. They like to bitch that those evil filthy 1%er billionaires the Koch Brothers are promoting an agenda that will institute Standard White Jesus as the state religion and install heartbeat monitors on every woman's uterus to shock her if she tries to take a morning after pill, but anyone who sees evil filthy 1%er billionaire George Soros promoting an agenda to confiscate semi automatic magazine fed rifles is buying into "conspiracy theories."

I just want to put this out there. From Dictionary.Reference.Com

con·spir·a·cy
   /kənˈspɪrəsi/ Show Spelled[kuhn-spir-uh-see] Show IPA
noun, plural -cies.
1. the act of conspiring.
2.an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.
3.a combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose: He joined the conspiracy to overthrow the government.
4.Law. an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.
5.any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.

That shoe fits pretty good, don't it, Georgie Boy? Why don't we take a look at my revised Media Matters Gun Facts Fellowship Boilerplate? That sounds like fun.

This post is written as part of the Media Matters Gun Folly fellowship. The purpose of the fellowship is to further Media Matters’ agenda to aggressively decry, smear, and distort inconvenient gun truths in the U.S. media. Some of the worst misinformation occurs around the issue of guns, constitutional law, and (white) extremism, the fellowship program is designed to fight this information with bald faced lies.

And to my progressive friends-is it only media bias if the other side does it?

  1. One of my favorites actions in that vein is to point out that in its last analysis of media bias Harvard University found Fox's six pm news show the most balanced of the lot.

    The leftie will find it tremendously difficult to disagree with anything from that bastion of liberal thought that is Harvard, and the rightie will find it tremendously difficult to agree with anything from that bastion of liberal thought that is Harvard.

    Oh if only heads could explode.
