The media has an agenda and it is not to search out for answers. The media has become an incurious bunch; a lazy bunch that takes at face value anything that supports their own myopic view. The media is a sheltered bunch rarely leaving the confines of the cement jungles. The conservatives, republicans, and the right, need to understand this fact. The media will never be on the side of the right. The reality they live in is confined by the urban walls in which they live. The media types believe they are refined because they have culture, because they have fine dining and theater. They have heard about the soup kitchens and maybe even visited one or two, but they know nothing about what it is really like. The right needs to start calling out the incurious.
Newt Gingrich, for all of his faults, had this right, press the media. Call their objectivity into question. Call the one-sided beliefs into questions. When the media asks someone on the right to defend themselves against "common sense" laws don't fight with facts and figures, answer the question with a questions like "common sense to whom? You?" All to often the right has to defend their beliefs while the left has the opportunity to espouse their beliefs. This will not change, this is the reality of the media. They are by nature liberal. They are truly interested in "human interest" stories. They like anecdotes and use anecdotal evidence as proof. Liberals are ruled by emotion and the media types are no different. The media does not understand rational thought processes let alone logical thought processes. They only understand their environment in the cement jungles where they feel secure. They do not understand, nor do they care to understand, why people prefer not to live elbow to elbow with their neighbor. The love to visit the pristine wilderness, but would not dare to live in the wilderness. See the left of which the media exist, does not really understand why people would not prefer the urban centers where the culture and civilization exists. Why would one really want anything else other than the concrete jungles.
That is why, we must fight the left and the media at every turn. There is no need to coddle to the media in hopes of getting a good press narrative. That will never happen. Every time the leftward media comes to interview someone on the right, they go in with preconceived notions and will conduct the interview from their point of view. Now don't get me wrong they will attack from both sides but will never really budge from what it is they truly believe. The media has become an expert at manipulation. Just look at the last election. It should have been an election about the economy, yet the left knew their favored candidate couldn't win on the economy so they made it about social issues and class warfare. They manipulated the low information voters. This will never change. So why fight with facts when the left will make up their own facts with emotion filled anecdotes? Instead the right needs to become indignant with the media just like Newt did. Instead of allowing Candi Crowley to interject herself in the debates, Romney should have become indignant with her for her lies. The worst thing that could have happened was Romney would lose the election. Well guess what he did lose. The time to start calling out the media at every turn is now. We can not allow the media to set the narrative. Get out in front of them and attack them and their beliefs like they do the beliefs held by the right. The media is incurious and will not investigate. Their minds are made up, which makes it the right time to attack the messenger. The media does not like being defensive so make them defensive, maybe just maybe, more will realize they are not objective and start to at least make an attempt to present both sides of the arguments.
