All the news that's fit to ignore

This coming from Tim Graham at NewsBusters is telling:

A new ABC-Washington Post poll found ObamaCare sunk to its lowest popularity yet: 52 percent opposed, and only 43 percent in favor. ABC mentioned the poll without fanfare at the end of a Jake Tapper report on Monday’s World News, and Tapper added this was the health law’s “lowest level of popularity ever.” But Tuesday’s Washington Post reported not one sentence on the poll in the paper – even as they reported in the paper that the same survey found Obama’s tax-and-unemployment-compensation deal has “broad bipartisan support.”

This is the same Post that highlighted the news on Page One on October 20, 2009, when they found a “clear majority” in favor of a socialist “public option” — amid charges they oversampled Democrats. 

Expect to see much more of this sort of stuff from our mouthpiece media as Obama’s stumbling and bumbling continues and as the in the tank press attempt to hide it all.

    Well, even if they publish it, nobody will read it. Maybe they’ve finally gotten that clue.

    Not at all suprising.

    The LSM has been using polls for a long time to influence public opinion. Since this doesn’t further the narrative they’re pushing, best to ignore it.

    Fair enough.

    I’ve been ignoring the NY Times, Boston Globe democrat and Washpo for years. Works both ways.

    The old line media are all losing money hand over fist. The NYT, Boston Glob, and WAPO all lose money on every paper they print. These papers know that their days are numbered and they cannot exist for much longer as free standing institutions.

    What these papers are waiting for is a federal bailout. They had hoped to get one with the last congress and it had been discussed. obama may still find a way to give them one by manipulating TARP monies.

    That is why they are unwilling to print negative news about the government. Not only are they ideologically aligned with the far left obama and his far left advisers like van jones, but they are waiting and hoping for a multibillion dollar payday. They don’t want to make waves until that payday happens. They can’t afford to.
