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.

Still support for Herman Cain?

“Herm Cain” as performed by Hoboken resident Tim Tuttle

Those of you that follow politics may have seen the Herman Cain SuperPac Ad Parody Stephen Colbert was in the news about earlier this week.

If you found that interesting, you’ll certainly enjoy how Hoboken resident and musician Tim Tuttle and his band thought they’d also chime in on the Herman Cain parodies with their video: Rock the Herm / Herm Cain Rocks, sung to the tune of Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine.”

Should Chris Rock support Ron Paul in 2012?

Ron Paul & Chris Rock see eye to eye on drug policies in America?

Take a look at this very entertaining video aligning a Chris Rock stand-up routine with Ron Paul’s viewpoints on “drugs” in the United States.

Very funny – and very truthful.

Mitt Romney Top 10 List

Mitt Romney cameo for David Letterman’s Top 10 List

Now it’s Mitt Romney’s turn to get some airtime here at Hoboken411. However, this Top 10 List from David Letterman – while mildly entertaining, doesn’t portray Mr. Romney in a very positive light. He seems to have no confidence, and probably regrets this appearance.

My bet? Romney will never be president.

Meet Mitt Romney

Bringing Mitt Romney up today reminded me of a post I published on Hoboken411 way back in February 2008 – entitled “Meet Mitt.”

Still makes me laugh to this day:

Republican Candidate Ron Paul

Ron Paul gaining momentum in GOP reace – will he ever get elected?

With less than a year left – I created a new Hoboken411 category for the 2012 Presidential Elections, and will occasionally post videos and brief updates regarding candidates that are in the running.

We’ll start today off with some Ron Paul clips.

This is his third time running for the top office, and may have finally broke through the media-blackout and has his best chance so far.

His appearance on the Jay Leno show the other day:

And a compilation of all Paul’s answers in a recent Republican debate:
