The GOP's media cocoon - Jonathan Martin - POLITICO.com

      While liberals have MSNBC to reassure them of what they already believe, conservatives have an extensive media support system from FOX to Rush to Newsmax to all sorts of other outlets.
       They all have the same slant and that's why everyone was believing Mitt Romney would win...and win big.
       On MSNBC its always something about GOP voter suppression , but on FOX its always missing military ballots and Acorn-inspired voter fraud.
       Its an interesting observation.

I watch Fox because they are fair and balanced. They always showed the polls in Obama's favor and the one lone poll with Mitt wining. Then they pointed out the turnout difference that gives the differing results. This was on every one of their opinion shows. They made it clear that it was a guessing game and they thought they had the better guess. But they did not have us "convinced" of anything.

Voter fraud is a fact of life. It is the only reason the Democrats fight against voter ID laws.

I watch both MSNBC and Fox News as well, and while it is certainly true MSNBC leans to the left, Fox News actually has the audacity to present themselves as ”fair and balanced” while knowingly misleading their viewers…

“Joe Muto, the man better known as the "Fox News Mole," appeared on HuffPost Live on Monday to dish some dirt about his former employers.”

He had this to say:

*snip*
"The people at Fox are not stupid," he said. "They know when they have Dick Morris or one of these other pundits on predicting a landslide victory for Romney, the people behind the scenes know that it's all bluster. They know that this is sort of an entertainment. They know that a lot of these people are just hucksters ... we producers know that this is all a farce. The reason we don't step in and give a reality check to our audience is because that's terrible for ratings…"

Too better understand Fox News -- think Orson Well’s, and his 1938 broadcast of “War of the Worlds” -- an alternate universe created by their own propaganda machine.

It is the racists in Philly and Chicago. How else to explain 99% vote for Obama. They wouldn't vote against a black.

MSNBC has Morning Joe...FOX has Charles Krauthammer along with Fox and Friends....That's why Jon Stewart cals FOX "B.S. Mountain".
