2012 Presidential Election

2012 Presidential Debate Prep – MSM alternatives

Has the mainstream media (MSM) ever been completely honest and trustworthy with the information they disseminate to the masses?

I’m not so sure there was ever a time like that, but judging by what is happening here in 2012 – it seems like the MSM is trying harder than ever to “shape” public opinion, than they are “reporting” what is actually happening in the world.

With that being said, and I hope that most of you can see through the BS game that the “big networks” are playing in regards to domestic and international issues.

And I’m not going to get into the various endgame scenarios that are possible, but rather suggest some reading material to peruse prior to the various Presidential debates scheduled for this month.

Most of the stories you’ll read on these sites will not be covered in the MSM.

Recommended Reading

  • Newsbusters.org – They are diligent in uncovering the slanted reporting from the liberal media, and post several dozen stories daily. A must read.
  • Zerohedge.com – Mainly financial, but they shine light on many global economic issues – as well as domestic and foreign policy.
  • The Ulsterman Report – A very interesting political site, with supposed “insider” information. Apparently a lot of the stuff they published in the past – saw the light of day a year later… you’d have to read back into the archives to get up to speed.
  • Drudge Report – Most of you probably know about this, or have the app. But they do a great job aggregating the headlines – as well as frequently publish OLD stories that may contradict what certain individuals have recently said. A quick and easy way to get a pulse on what’s going on in the world.

It’s kind of concerning when it becomes very hard to trust the messages out there, and frustrating to think about how many people in this country actually take it at face value. Here’s an interesting speech given last month by Patrick Caddell, a former Democratic Pollster – who says that Mainstream media is threatening our country’s future:”

2012 Presidential Debate Schedule

  1. October 3rd @ 9pm (Presidential – topic: Domestic Policy)
  2. October 11th @ 9pm (Vice Presidential – topic: Domestic and Foreign Policy)
  3. October 16th @ 9pm (Presidential “Town Meeting” – topic: Domestic and Foreign Policy)
  4. October 22nd @ 9pm (Presidential – topic: Foreign Policy)

If none of this matters to you – then you might as well get helplessly drunk with other sheeple during the first Presidential debate.

You want to know why some of us are voting for Obama? Here are some reasons: This list has appeared on many different blogs. Not sure who first posted it. (1) Dow up from 6,843 to 13,367 (with the advent of Bush’s failed economic policies, Dow dropped nearly 8,000 points); (2) unemployment slowing, 4.4 million jobs created (8 years of Bush: earned interest rate drops to near zero, unemployment surpasses 8.9%, economy hemorrhages 760,000 jobs per month, number of attacks on diplomatic outpost highest since 1979); (3) steady GDP growth, (4) ended DADT over a year ago, and none of… Read more »

Just a few comments: 1. Bush isn’t running 2. Bush isn’t running 3. Very tepid GDP growth that keeps being revised downward 6. If the USA had Canada’s demographics it could be equally successful with a Canadian HC system. But it doesn’t so it won’t. 7. The president does not control spending and has very limited control over deficits and surpluses – this is civics 101. I continue to be amazed at how many people still say “Clinton surplus.” Plus a lot of the surplus was due to fleeting revenues from a false tech bubble economy. 12. Bush isn’t running… Read more »

Are you serious? The fact that he even had to question whether to pull the trigger should disqualify him. You’re giving Obama credit for a no-brainer? Please. You just shot your credibility.[quote comment=”217440″]Oh, and let me add one more: Osama bin Laden–dead.[/quote]

not to bust your bubble, if the former navy seal is correct,a female cia head planned most of the operation to get bin laden..All the KIA military searching in afgan only to find that this dog was in pakistan…This country that the usa sends billions betrayed the USA and in the process lost many mothers sons in these search and destroy missions.Regardless of how many Al qaeda is killed they have tons of offspring growing up to carry the fight. You can kill the man ,but not the cause..time for obama to bring our troops home then obama has my… Read more »

Here’s how I would structure the contest. All candidates come with deck of cards printed all spending programs the federal government currently funds, and those the candidates propose as new that they wish to add to the currently $16,000,000,000,000 (trillion) national debt. The moderator shuffles the decks and hands them to candidates. Each candidate, one at a time, then licks the back of the card and sticks it to their forehead. The other candidates then can help them guess what it is or lie to them. That blind candidate then decides whether to “Keep-or-Cut” the program. The candidate with the… Read more »

There was a last minute debate change apparently they have added a new twist, both candidates must now debate in their best southern accent. 😆

As with the local Hoboken elections, all these candidates promise this and that and end up being the third of *three kinds of people in the world (*see Team America: bar scene). Whether you’re a D or a P, it’s all the same. They keep promising to do more and more on top of a mountain of crap, but it’s just another turd of debt. If only both locally and federally, government began campaigning on what little they will do in terms of spending so that we impossibly avoid fiscal suicide of $16 trillion towards $23 trill without the frill.… Read more »
