It appears that the Obama administration is making deals you cannot refuse. Steve Rattner, Obama's Car Czar, is said to have threaten to use the White House Press Corps to damage the reputation of the investment firm Perella Weinberg, if they did not get their investors to go along with the administrations plans for Chrysler.
WTF? I guess the MSM's attack on Joe the Plumber during the campaign wasn't just the media taking sides. It appears they take their directions directly from the top. While we conservatives have seen the media cover for democrats before, this is something completely new. Nothing could be more damaging to democracy then having the media cover for the government or worse yet do the government's bidding.
Can you imagine if these gangster tactics are used against wishy washy Republicans in Congress? I cannot imagine half of them standing up the intense microscope and personal attacks. I guess this is why, none of them have stepped up to defend Sarah Palin. Since we can hardly expect Republicans in Congress to make sure Obama and the MSM abandon these Soviet style methods, what are we to do?
It is time for conservatives and freedom loving Americans to start taking action against a radical and biased media. The best way to hit the media, is to hit their advertisers. Since so many of them are seeing a sharp decline in ad revenue, they are extremely sensitive to advertiser's demands. When we see the media going after private citizens like Carrie Prejean and Joe the Plumber, we should not hesitate to call the advertisers of those shows or newspapers. For example, in the case of Carrie Prejean we should ask advertisers, "why do you support misogyny? Why are you advertising on [insert offending media here], when they say things like [insert offensive quote here]? The last thing any advertiser wants is to have their goods or services associated with something as bad as misogyny.
If the media wants to cover up Obama's mistakes with rainbow and puppy dogs stories about his administration, that is one thing. However, if it wants to play the role of the administration's attack dog, by going after private citizens and companies, then it needs to be brought to heel at once.
