Obama Victory Through Media Malpractice

by LukeAmerica2020

During our most recent quadrennial cataclysm, most conservatives were concerned by how easily Barack Obama’s unrelenting vague political platitudes of “change” and “hope” easily swayed not only strangers, but also otherwise rational thinking friends, family, and colleagues. Moreover, most of us were fully cognizant of how ridiculously slanted in favor of Obama that most of the mainstream media (MSM) was.

But, what may not be as readily apparent is how the manipulation of large groups of people through left-leaning media outlets contributed to the lack of essential knowledge many Americans had regarding both the Presidential candidates and political information in general.

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
George Orwell
English Novelist and Essayist (1903-1950)

An upcoming documentary video by John Ziegler delves into voters’ ignorance of common political facts. In asking basic questions of pro-Obama voters as they exited polling places, Ziegler got remarkably misinformed answers. In fact, these voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence, verbal abilities, and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience.

These Obama voters could not correctly identify Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D), Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid (D), … and … they could not correctly identify the majority party of both houses of the current (110th) US Congress (the Democratic Party).

They were also asked about gaffs made by different candidates. Interestingly, almost all attributed every gaff to Sarah Palin even though most were made by Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Ziegler’s team conducted the interviews right after the Obama supporters voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign. Today, Ziegler postulates that these folks were, in fact, the victims of gross “media malpractice”.

You may need to turn your volume up a little to hear this one.

 
Ziegler also appeared on the Fox News Hannity & Colmes show Monday (2008-11-17) for a lively discussion.

This video is from the TalkToZig YouTube channel.

Because interviewing a relative handful of Obama voters, while interesting, is hardly scientific proof of anything, Ziegler also commissioned a Zogby International telephone poll (November 13 – 15) which asked the very same questions (as well as a few more) to a random sampling of 512 Obama voters with similarly amazing results.

 
Zogby Poll Results:

512 Obama Voters:
11/13/08 – 11/15/08 (margin of error: +/- 4.4 points)

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates


Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions


57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing).

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing).

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing).

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing).

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes.

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter.

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only 0.5% got all of them correct.

 
Hmmm …
It appears to me the toxic recipe concocted by the MSM of repeated campaign bromides, vicious attacks on the Republican candidates, highly favorable coverage of the Democratic candidates, and ongoing blatant omission of relevant news coverage contaminated voters’ ideological perspective and political knowledge. What say you?
