AFP rebutts Andrea Mitchell and the main stream media

20 Jun

By now, most of us have heard of the efforts of one Andrea Mitchell and her cohorts at MSNBC to edit video from a recent campaign speech to paint Mitt Romney as “out of touch”. Her report was immediately exposed by the blogosphere (SooperMexican) for deceptively distorting Romney’s real message of the efficiency of the free market and entrepreneurial enterprises in the private sector vs.the extreme inefficiency of a red tape laden, bloated federal government, run by bureaucrats. A point that Romney delivered very effectively.

While the “new media” was effective in shining a light on this latest attempt by the main stream media to contribute to the re-election of President Obama and even forced a flaccid near-retraction by Mitchell, the sad truth is that the damage is done. A large segment of the electorate heard the lie but may not have heard the truth. As impactful as the conservative members of the new media are, if we are to be victorious we need help.

That is where organizations like Americans for Prosperity come in. In addition to their role as a government and legislative watchdog, they are committed to help drive the narrative. They are making the investment to reach Americans whose exposure to news is limited to the traditional main stream media outlets. Americans for Prosperity is launching a $5.5 million ad blitz across six battleground states titled “Doing Fine”. The ad makes the point that it is the president that is out of touch. That by making the ridiculous claim that the private sector is doing fine he is not only out of touch but is incapable of fixing the economy because he doesn’t understand what is wrong.

    “smoke and mirrors” Us, the audience of media, “New or Mainstream” is being deceived, an attempt to fool us into thinking that he has capabilities to understand and fix our economy. He knows he can’t win this election if he were to tell the truth, that would mean he has admitted to failure.
    As Honest Abe once said “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”
