Desperate effort by MSM to spin speaking out against corruption in SalinePosted by Chris Beavers on Tuesday, May 18th, 2010 @ 10:54 am.
SALINE CO.---Anybody else dizzy from the desperate spin MSM is putting on the revealing Tea Party Saturday?
Here's a poll one of Saline County's MSM put up in an obvious effort to offset the impact the small Tea Party had on the area...especially since the event was given real coverage by Disclosure.
Already, Harrisburg's paper has given you slanted coverage of the event, picking out only the points of different presentations that fit their agenda, and in fact taking much of the information completely out of context.
For those who were there, we know what the 'burg paper is up to...but for those who weren't, they're being given a skewed view of what a Tea Party is all about.
A Tea Party isn't a bunch of angry rednecks or narrow-minded, gun-toting Bible-thumpers (although we do have a lot of guns and Bibles).
A Tea Party is a gathering of people who are informed on what's being done to our country---deliberately in many instances---and are interested in talking about it. Many people take the microphone and speak on different areas of experience and expertise, but oftentimes, just the average citizen steps forward and expresses, in four or five minutes, what he or she has experienced under the deterioration of this country. It is an encouraging event and lets those of us who believe in adhering to the Constitution as the rule of law that we are not alone---that there are other brave people who will assemble peacefully and voice our opinions, sometimes coming to conclusions that are workable for this or that different problem we may be experiencing in our communities.
Saturday, Danny Gibbs did speak about widespread corruption in Saline County, the county being his area of expertise. He got on the board BECAUSE of corruption---many good people do just that, run for public office because they see a handful of elites placing themselves in positions of power to the detriment of the rest of the populace.
The fact that only 17 people voted in this poll posted on the 'burg's website indicates a couple of things: people just don't vote in polls, or there isn't that much interest. If it's the latter, that's sad...because it's "interest" that the Tea Parties are trying to spur, to get people out of their doldrums of "well there's nothing I can do to fight this, might as well go watch Dancing with the Stars and have another beer."
But the greater lesson here should be that instead of looking INTO possible corruption---where it is, who's perpetrating it, how bad is it and can it be brought under control---the local MSM paper is dismissing it, minimizing it by reducing it to a poll. They wouldn't dare investigate it. They wouldn't dare produce articles about it. They wouldn't dare let the citizens read and decide for themselves...instead, they've got to place the spin on it and make anyone who thinks there is such corruption---apparently, only about 12-13 people---appear the fool.
And that's saddest of all.
We don't ordinarily put certain tags on these posts anymore because there are SO MANY posts that cover like material, that the linked stories that appear on the left side of the page overwhelm the article.
But this time, we're going to make sure that among the other tags necessary for the story, one word especially will be in the post tags---'Saline'---and we want you to look at the plethora of links that come up on the left side of the page.
And then you read them, and you tell us in all honesty that there's "no corruption in Saline"...or maybe only about 76 percent corruption even.
