Media Bias and Its Affect
According to CBO projections, before Obama's stimulus became law, federal debt equaled 36 percent of GDP and was projected to decline slightly over the next few years. Instead, thanks in large part to the stimulus, debt reached 62 percent of GDP by 2010 and will reach 70 percent of GDP by the end of this year – the highest percentage since World War II.
The CBO's Baseline Budget Outlook reveals that the 2011 budget is projected to spend $3.71trillion which is $1.48trillion (66%) more than total projected receipts.
So how in the world did someone so inept get elected to the highest office in America?
According to the 1996 survey by the American Society of Newspaper Editors, 61% of Journalists identify themselves as Liberal/Democratic, 15% Conservative/Republican, and 24% Independent/Other versus a general population of 34% Democrat, 30% Republican, & 36% Independent. Is it any wonder that the "main stream media" overwhelmingly publishes stories, cartoons, and opinions that support a liberal vision for America?
Socialists spend a lot of money inundating people with statements intended to motivate them to vote for their puppets. They implant into the minds of a large part of the population that Democrats can do no wrong, while Republicans can do no right. They flood the airwaves and print media with that message while denigrating all who offer a differing opinion. There are some conservative opinions presented in liberal media outlets which allow them to propagandize how "fair" they are, but the reality is we are inundated with liberal views.
During the 2004 presidential campaign, Newsweek’s Evan Thomas predicted that sympathetic media coverage would boost Kerry’s vote by “maybe 15 points,” which he later revised to 5 points. Obama beat McCain by 7.2 points!
If you really believe that it is OK for people to spend 66% more than they make, then keep supporting Obama's minions. If not, please help return our country to a Constitutional Republic!
