Big Media Whitewash- AP Skips Over Kos Anti-Semitic Hate Speech
Could you even imagine Republicans going to an event sponsored by anti-Semitic haters and getting away with it?
Yet… Big Media is coddling the dems by whitewashing their report on Daily Kos from any of the frequent hate speech in their review of the Yearly Kos event.
This hate-filled rant at Daily Kos is sadly not the only anti-Semitic posting on the website.
CHICAGO – Plunging headlong into the Internet era, Democratic presidential candidates on Saturday fought for the support of powerful and polarizing liberal bloggers by promising universal health care, aggressive government spending and dramatic change from the Bush era.
Who will be about change? Who is the candidate for change? And how do we bring about change?” asked former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, suggesting his rivals are creatures of the status quo.
Seven of the eight leading candidates attended the second Yearly Kos convention, participating in a candidate forum and conducting individual sessions designed to be more freewheeling.
The convention drew 1,500 bloggers, most of them liberal(?), who represent the latest advancement in communicating and community.
Gone are the days when candidates and political parties could talk to passive voters through mass media, largely controlling what messages were distributed, how the messages went out and who heard them.
The Internet has help create millions of media outlets and given anyone the power to express an opinion or disseminate information in a global forum, and connect with others who have similar interests.
One way of doing this is through online journals, or blogs, such as those celebrated Saturday.
Don’t expect Hillary Clinton to ever be asked if she condones the hate speech from the Daily Kos…
It is much too prickly a question to come from today’s mainstream media.
