How You Can Know a Story Really Has Merit
It hasn't always been the case, but these days there's one virtually sure way to know that a story has merit. It's simply this: when the MSM ignores stories that, in normal times, would rock this world and every thing in it, then you know there's something to the story they are conspicuously ignoring.
Here are a few blatant examples: the multiple undercover ACORN videos by James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles. The story is, in fact, ongoing but the MSM doesn't care a whit.
Then there are all those radical friends and associates President and Mrs. Obama have had over the years like "Rev." Wright and Bill Ayers as well as the many dubious czars that have been appointed such as Van Jones, an admitted communist, and Anita Dunn who extolled the virtues of Mao. The MSM showed no interest in these stories.
Most recently, of course, is the revelatory proof of the trumped up hoax of Global Warming. No, not a peep out of the MSM. These revelations have ramifications which are effecting our economy and every aspect of how we live our lives.
Today I emailed the News Bureau of WBAP (which carries Rush here in Dallas) and asked them why they weren't reporting on the earth shattering news that Global Warming has been proven to be fraudulent. Rick Hadley, News Director, replied, "Rush is talking about it right now. Isn't that reporting the story?"
Well, no, it isn't.
I emailed back that Rush has also talked about the Swine Flu on numerous occasions but WBAP has continued to include something about the Swine Flu in nearly every newscast for the past several months. Still no news about ClimateGate from the news bureau of the "Big BAP."
I could go on and on. Massive Tea Parties that went under-reported, the Town Hall Meetings throughout the summer, unprecedented govt spending, record unemployment, alarming debt, presidential ineptitude; all have been virtually covered up or ignored by a lapdog, propagandizing media best categorized by Rush as the "state-run media."
So keep this in mind when Talk Radio and the Internet call attention to something you know should be big news; if the MSM shows no interest in the story, you can bet there's something to it.
