As if they wanted to go out of their way to disprove a myth, main-stream media has shown once again that their bias is and always has been toward conservatives and the disgusting, worm-tongued lies that conservatives and the walking filth we call Republicans like to spit out as if they were pearls of wisdom.
The filth at the top, the 1%, are screaming at their useful idiots (Republican and Democrat legislators) to destroy social security as we know it. This has been the rallying cry of the priviliged since Ronald Reagan. A program the helps only the poor and the elderly - we can't have that in future Republican Utopia, and the John Birchers and other human garbage wrapped in expensive suits and taking envelopes of cash weekly from the Koch Brothers nods eagerly in agreement. That's SOCIALISM!! That is RUINING OUR COUNTRY!!!
Now, taking care of your poor and elderly is a good idea and one any developed nation that likes to call itself the "greatest hope of the free world", and other choice phrases would agree with, but darn it, that money can be used to give to oil corporations, weapons manufacturers, the Koch and Bush families, and Haliburton where the rightwing thinks it belongs. You see, corporations DESERVE that money, elderly citizens who have worked their entire lives supporting the USA don't. This is clear to anyone who has spent time around wealthy conservatives. Now, this is a fact. It's also a fact that the media is hiding the truth from the voter - that none of them will vote for destroying social security and medicare if someone is watching.
The media, the rightwing media, is currently stumbling all over itself to oblige. They will not report the truth about social security and the people who want to destroy it. It's up to good American citizens like us liberals.
Sarah Jones knows. From her article (contents here): "The AP is assisting Republicans with their desperate meme that Democrats are to blame for the failure to avert the Fiscal Cliff that Republicans built with previous refusals to compromise."
Note she directly calls out AP (Associated Press), as they are providing a source for millions of lesser news outlets. As a feed source of news, the damage the AP can do is incalculable, unless you're an oligarch, and you bought it. Then you already know how much damage they can do by spreading your propaganda, in fact that's why you bought them.
Why does the media want to misinform the public, if the media is supposed to be a liberal mess? What gives?
The "liberal MSM" is of course a lie and everyone but the denizens of the information-poor Foxnewsiverse understand.
Please look for more information on the poor coverage of the media on Social Security. You can use the Google. Or you can go here:
Even The Sideboob Daily (aka as Ariana Huffington's pocket book money maker) has to print a few facts now and then to keep posing as a "liberal" news outlet.
There are more. I urge all of my filthy liberal fans to talk about the social security FACTS to everyone they can. If you don't, who will? Nazi Republicans will.
