About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

Opportunities For The New Media

A few days ago, on another blog, it was being discussed how we could compete/take over the main stream media. Several thought that it would require us finding funds that would allow us to take over the existing news networks, or failing that, to start one of our own. My inclination, was to support alternative sources for the news and information. This morning, as I was browsing through the Drudge Report, I found this little gem POLL: Most Consider Web Most Reliable Source of News... . If the mainstream media is being drowned out by internet and talk radio already, I say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." We know that the Internet and talk radio does have an impact. We just need to capitalize on that.

If any of my friends that read this, and I consider all of you to be friends, have any ideas how we can organize and maximize our impact, please send me your ideas. If I can be of service in implementing them, I'll give it the ol' college try. I do firmly believe that if we are going to take this country back from the socialists and social leeches, we are going to have to make our voice louder and more persuasive.

I, too, said somewhere in the blogosphere that it's the MEDIA WE HAVE TO FIX....when our message is heard, when FAIRNESS enters into news again, Conservatism will win again. Yes, we have cleaning up to do, yes, we're not well represented, BUT, we have good people coming up: Sanford, Palin, Jindal, etc...

BUT, without FAIR media which doesn't obfuscate, lie, mischaracterize and constantly demonize, we're toast... MOST people don't read the internet blogs, don't listen to talkradio...mostly Conservatives DO. We have conservatives..we need independents.

I'm ALL OVER figuring what to do about the media....we need to focus. I'd go a long way to fix this....sounds like you and others would, too.

(glad you're at my site, Oklahoma...I'm blogrolling you...good to have you there, welcome)

The Liberal Lie The Conservative Truth said...

Thomas Jefferson once said, " I read no newspaper now but Ritchie's, and in that chiefly the advertisements, for they contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper. "

When people starve for truth they seek it where ever they can find it. That is one reason why , "alternative media," is so popular because it deals in truth and not percieved reality like the MSM invents.

The problem is not in creating a truthful media because the," alternatives," provide that already, but in convincing those who rely on the false and misleading media, (the MSM), as their source for news.

The left condemns the truth and praises the lie and that my friend is the problem.

I think enough said. Just sit back and give them enough rope to hang themselves. I think their bringing about their own demise.

My point exactly. With their market shares falling every quarter, they will either smarten up or croak. either way works for me.

Well for one thing, PLEASE support talk radio. It has backed the right into a corner and we on the left and far left would prefer you stay there.
Talk radio is actually one of our best allies as it forces conservatism to desert the center.

As for the Internet. The lefts presence is pretty strong and with the Internet you pretty much preach to the choir.

So my advice would be to stay on the fringe but if you want to be successful you will have to abandon talk radio for something more coherent.
