Liberal Mainstream Media's Coverage of Iraq/Afghanistan War Since A Democrat Has Been President
When one party overwhelmingly controls a media, they get to choose the grounds and focus of the debate. Gay marriage is a big issue right now because the party that runs most news outlets, hollywood, etc., have made it so. It takes the focus from issues that they don't want to be scrutinized (The economy, immigration, etc.) and puts the spotlight on a subject that they can effectively control the debate.
If the party that opposes said media-controlling party shifts its views in order to accommodate swayed popular opinion, then the media controlling party gains ground and shifts focus to another issue it thinks it can sway the population in favor of and repeats the cycle. Eventually you wind up with the media-controlling party successfully deciding policy and the other party constantly playing catch-up, without it gaining any ground.
Factor in the original members of the catch-up party that no longer support it due to alienating and abandoning them, and you have a party that can't win ever again.
When a Republican President was in office there were daily reports of the wars in the Middle East. Now that a Democrat is the President the Liberal Mainstream Media does not report on the war any longer. It is as if the war is over and no more American Soldiers are being killed. There were daily death tolls on many major news networks of the soldiers killed until a Democrat became President.
I came across a good comment describing this:
"There isn't a Republican in the White House to beat over
the head with non-stop coverage. I vividly remember the daily
casualty count on most of the networks. How come they don't
do that with "Obama's" war in Afghanistan? Their boy is in
office, so "everything is under control."
How much reporting was done when Clinton sent us to Bosnia?
If there was any, it was how much good we were doing, not about
how many civilians we killed while bombing from, like, two miles up.
The only time the Main Stream Media notices a war is when it advances their agenda, for good or bad."
Remember Gitmo? When a Republican was President it was non-stop coverage from the Liberal Main Stream Media about the torture going on there. Obama even promised to close it during his campaign. Over four years later Gitmo is still open and the Liberal Main Stream Media has not even reported on it.
When a Republican was President it was non-stop coverage from the Liberal Main Stream Media about gas prices and the affect on us. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president and they don't even mention it (October 2012) because a "Democrat" is the president.
Right before a Presidential election the Liberal Main Stream Media will constantly report on negative rumors about a Republican candidate even though there is no evidence to back them up. These negative reports with no basis in fact are played twenty four seven to influence voters to vote Democrat.
When there is direct evidence linking the Democrat Presidential candidate to a scandal the Liberal Main Stream Media might briefly report on it once and then bury the story.
The Liberal Main Stream Media is nothing but a propaganda machine for; Liberals, Socialists, Communists, and Marxists! The media, like our universities, are now dominated by Leftists, and for the Leftists the only truth that exists is the one they want to exist. If it has no connection to empirical reality, so be it. When news runs counter to their agenda, they censor it or spin it to fit their agenda.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord,"
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
