    You Can’t Spell Progressive Chance Campaign Committee Without PC

    By kyle | March 16, 2009

    New “watchdog” group forms — for the sole purpose of trying to push CNBC left. But CNBC is doing great by leaning right. It’s called the free market, PCCC. (Sounds suspiciously like a bizarro-world version of CCCP, doesn’t it? Of course, the CCCP never tried to supress free speech, so the comparison ends there.)

      Isn’t this the type of gestapo, first amendment be damned, action the left usually illustrates to show the right is trying to sway the news? Somehow I don’t think it will be portrayed that way.

      Nah, it’s just the standard information warfare/jamming campaign. I’ve been following press bias since the 80s. Whenever the right or libertarians started to catch on, books would appear crying “press bias” and damning the MSM as too CONSERVATIVE oriented.

      When you looked into the background of the authors, it always turned out that they were absolution correct. Mainly because they were communist or fascist/socialist and, big surprise, the MSM was to the right of them. This, of course gives cover to the MSM to say “Hey, we get complaints from both sides.”

      The kicker, of course is that one set of complainants represent .01 percent of the population and the other 30 to 50 percent.

      This I can assure you is all engineered by the White House just like the coordinated attacks on Limbaugh by that childish hack of a press secretary, Gibbs.

      While admittedly not very old, in my 30’s, I’ve never in my lifetime seen an administration so hostile and aggressive in squashing opposition. They aren’t attacking other criminals..I mean politicians, they are going after normal citizens who disagree with them. It’s all eerily similar to the sort of shenanigans you see from facist regimes.

      Also isn’t it Queen Pantsuit who started Media Matters with campaign donations?
