Let us, for purposes of this article, call the main stream media, sheep.Sheep have certain characteristics that fit the frauds who have been pretending to be real reporters and journalists in America these days:
1. Timid, fearful, easily panicked
2. Dumb stupid, gullible
3. Very vulnerable to fear, frustration, pests, hunger
4. Esily influenced by a leader, by the shepherd
5. Stampede easily, vulnerable to mob psychology
6. Little or no means of self-defense; can only run
7. Easily killed by enemies
8. Jealous, competitive for dominance..... (Source)
You get the idea.
Let’s take, for instance, this latest Mitt Romney pronouncement while visiting his friends over at FOX NEWS:"We understand you went to the American Legion the day before and you talked about the service and sacrifice of the military there,” Baier continued. “Do you regret opening up this line of attack, now a recurring attack, by leaving out that issue in the speech?'I’m going to regret you repeating it day in and day out,” Romney replied. “Hahaha. No. When you– when you give a speech, you don’t go through a laundry list, you talk about the things you think are important.”
Romney added that he thinks it’s important for the military to be “strong,” and that he used the word “military” in his convention speech interchangeably with “troops.” [Source]
Now, I have to ask you, why isn’t this story being reported on major news outlets? Can you imagine if the other guy running for president had made similar comments?But the plethora of sheep who masquerade as journalists in America have nothing to say. They won't follow up to Mr. Romney; they don’t want to know how the troops in the battlefield feel; they don’t try to connect the dots and focus in on Mitt Romney’s obvious disdain for the American soldier. He didn’t mention them in his acceptance speech, and he rarely talks about them when he is out stumping in Middle America.
So what gives? Folks, this is what they call in basketball parlance a make up call. In 2008 the perception was that journalists (sheep) were fawning all over the “chosen one”. Now they will be damned if they make that mistake again; so they bend over backwards to make a non-story out of something that should be leading every news cycle.
I guess the sheep in the press were scared that Mitt would do his Etch A Sketch "Jedi mind game" on them.
“I think they’re the same thing,” he told Baier, in a comment that practically echoes his one-time insistence that “corporations are people, my friend.” An analysis of Romney’s speech reveals he used the word “America” more than any other, but said “military” just twice.
