Scary. Oh, man, that’s scary.
John Ziegler, a writer and producer has put together a documentary entitled “Media Malpractice,” which he discusses at his Web site, HowObamaGotElected.com. Of course, for those who feel that Ziegler just interviewed a ton of people and picked only those who furthered his own message, there’s the corresponding Zogby poll.
I’m swamped today, but when I have more time later on tonight after class (I don’t finish until about 10:15pm), I’m sure I’ll have more to say. Even if I had time right now, I’m not sure I could put my thoughts down effectively after watching this.
In the meantime, a few questions to ponder:
- Was responsibility for this solely on a completely biased mainstream press, or could it be argued that the GOP was painfully deficient in getting the word out?
- If responsibility fell mostly on the media, what does this say about the chances for conservatives in the upcoming election?
- If responsibility fell mostly upon the GOP and John McCain, how do we ensure that we get the message out better between now and 2012?
UPDATE: It’s 11:45pm. I’m on about three hours of sleep, and need to read about 30 pages for tomorrow night’s class now, since I won’t have time at work tomorrow. I’m toast for tonight, so if I weigh in on this again, it will be tomorrow. Regardless, you guys are doing a good job of answering these questions anyway.
Thanks for understanding.
