The next time you talk with one of your liberal friends try asking this question….
What do you think about this ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal?
Chances are, if they get their news from ABC or NBC Nightly News they won’t have a clue about what you’re talking about. Why? Because ABC has only referenced it ONCE back in April of last year. But NBC has NEVER. Repeat NEVER mentioned it according to Media Research Center.
That’s why my few remaining liberal friends seem so stupid. In fact, they just aren’t informed because the source of their information isn’t telling them anything that runs contrary to their role as operatives for the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration.
While you’re at it. Ask your liberal friends and/or acquaintances questions like this…
- Why did the Obama administration lend so much taxpayer money to Solyndra? Chances are they won’t know what Solyndra is.
- Why did the Obama administration lend so much taxpayer money to LightSquared? Same as the above.
- What do you make of what happened at MF Global? Do your friends even know that big Dem John Corzine pulled off a heist of over One Billion dollars from investors?
- Why does Michelle Obama take her own plane on vacations to destinations where her husband is also going? I’ll bet MSM isn’t speaking of this. Just guessing. I rarely, if ever, watch NBC.CBS.ABC.CNN. I simply don’t have the stomach for fools.
There are lots of questions like this that could prompt a conversation wherein, if you’re patient, your liberal friends might realize that they’re being misled and underserved by their traditional news sources. It’s best to let them reach this conclusion on their own, I think.
What is a conservative? In many cases, including mine, it’s a former liberal who was exposed to more information.
Update: Just ran across this poster from the funny people at despair, inc. that seems appropriate to this topic.
