Thus Freepers are split between declaring their amorphous but hated for 'the media' dead, or just dead to them.
bioqubit uses a bunch of metaphors to extol Freepers' preferred media.
It was self-immolation, but the burn is incomplete. The stink of fried, necrotic, rotting journo-propagandist flesh may fill the room, but they are not dead yet. They can still have an epiphany.It requires believing an outlandish story, GOPJ works hard to lay Trump's victory at O'Keefe's feet alone:
Until then, the goal of the likes of Mr. O’Keefe, Mr. Bannon and others is to advance their projects, extend their reach, increase their influence, and gain ever larger audiences. They are the new shoots growing on the rotting log that is the mainstream media. I love mixing metaphors.
We had to set up elaborate aliases. We created an offshore account and wire transferred $20,000.00 in real money to this guy. We had exotic sports cars. We had private planes that were lended to me so that I could convince these guys that we were big money people, and finally, we got them to confess that it was in fact Hillary Clinton's idea to dress people up in these ridiculous costumes to get punched in the face.gundog knows the media is still alive, citing a now perennial Freeper myth:
THIS is what pushed Hillary over the edge - James was under her skin and she went with the 'deplorable' thing... and the rest is history. Hats off to millions of us each doing our part... and a big special thanks to James O'Keefe.
As of now, the MSM is just preaching to the choir. We were their targets FRiends, and they have lost.KittenClaws - If the media is telling the truth, then why do I lust for negro death?
Keep your powder dry. Plenty of folks believe...believe...that Trayvon Martin was a sweet little boy that was murdered for going out to buy some iced tea. And that’s just one thread in a magnificent tapestry of deceit spanning decades.
Yes, the Idiocy of people astounds me at times. Trayvon was an obvious thug; those that support him are no better.As is inevitable with such a poorly defined foe, firebrand has mixed up the Medium with the Media.
I often wonder what to do about this itchy finger of mine. My “open season” fantasies are tempered by my grasp of reality.
I sure wish the Trayvon types knew what they were messing with.
With Millenials and younger, it’s GONE. They don’t even own TV’s. It’s Netflix and whatever online streaming is next.ConservativeMind keeps to his cocoon:
I’m hardly a Millennial but I haven’t had a TV ever. We had one at home when I was a kid. On visits to my parents’ house, I would find that the content had deteriorated visibly since my last visit. They couldn’t see it because it was gradual.
It is the older folks who are addicted, with their “favorite shows,” etc. And of course the news. They have the TV on constantly, even when no one is watching. Whoever called it the modern “hearth” was dead on. The place doesn’t seem alive unless the TV is on. How sick is that?
OANN and the Internet, and I’m happy.Zenjitsuman wishes Trump would stick to tin foil:
Its not dead until Trump stops going on the MSM. This morning Trump is going to be on Today show with Matt lauer.Organic Panic has clearly never watched the news:
Should be on OAN, Alex Jones
They still exist for themselves. “Reporters” from CNN interview reporters from MSNBC who interview reporters from CBS who interview reporters from NYT who interview reporters from NPR. And on and on. The MSN doesn’t report any news or perform journalism. They present the narrative and report “facts” that support the narrative.Ironically, reprinting The Hill and Politico with crazier headlines is most of what the right wing blogosphere does.
nhwingut's life is hunting for Internet nutters and then nodding his head:
After years of watching FOX News and subscribing to NRO, Townhall etc, I now primarily watch and consume only new media.Enchante knows the best thing about 'the media' is that it never dies so long as Freepers have enemies to hate:
Instead of FNC all night from 6-11, it’s jumping around to James O’Keefe clips, Dennis Micheal Lynch Facebook Live, Mike Cernovich Periscope, Infowars Clips, OAN, Trump on RightSide, Drudge, Free Republic, Politipage for headlines ... Tucker, Dobbs, Hannity on TV.
I’m nearing 50, imagine what the millenials will be doing. The MSM is not dead but on last leg.
Mediascum are zombies, the walking dead. The keep coming back.Mashood is ready for the purge already!
All that needs to be said has been said. The talking is over. The people have spoken loud and clearly. Now comes the doing. Imposing your will upon the other.redfreedom wants some laws to keep the media fair.
No the mainstream media is not dead, far from it. Losing power? Yes. Near death? Yes.bigtoona may not want what he thinks he wants...
They may be soon irrelevant to mainstream America, but they will always have a grip on certain segments of the population.
They need to be legislated into telling the truth, into being unbiased, fair & balanced if you will. How this can be done while preserving the integrity of the 1st Amndmt is beyond me, but someone will figure it out.
Bring back the equal time regulation!Peter ODonnell thinks the only solution is to not let toe majority of citizens who live in cities vote.
The larger cities are the problem, in all western countries really, it’s the same thing, the politics of the larger cities are entirely out of touch with both the nations and reality. And the media represent only large urban interests. They don’t care if people have jobs or if the economy is rational; they don’t care if security or immigration policies are sane, and they don’t care about energy policy. All they care about is creating the make believe safe world for snowflakes, and city governments double down on this by marketing equally absurd political programs that are nothing more than fiction designed to soothe anxious people whose anxiety has been aroused by false narratives in the media.
The only long-term solution would be to disenfranchise the cities. If larger cities were treated like D.C., had no senators, and if also they had almost no federal representation, just their own crazy local governments, then the rest of the country could carry on with little or no further thought about the fate of the lost and doomed city folk. And the little colonies and hives of liberals in smaller towns (mostly around university campuses) would lose their support as the national political dialogue returned to a semblance of normalcy.
