Media Bias: Media Bias of all kinds.

The Stubbornly Stillborn Community at BuzzFeed Politics

Feb 7, 2013 10:27 AM PT

BuzzFeed Politics puts a ton of effort into using its content and contributors' Twitter accounts to suck up to the left-wing media, especially MSNBC, in the hopes of getting links and television appearances. And there's no question that's worked. The anti-gay site is now a part of the media's ongoing Obama defense line-up. But the site's lack of community is stubbornly and laughably barren.

Media bias: it's a gas, gas, gas

In response to Media Protect Obama as Record Energy Prices Hit the Poor:

Yet another example of Trial By Media - and, for anyone who remembers the pump panic of the Bush years, an amazing example of it.  I still fondly recall the doomsday montages of gas pump prices rocketing upward, mixed with images of worried soccer moms looking anxiously at the kids romping through the back of their SUVs while they went broke filling the tanks.  But now we get media stories about how expensive gas is awesome, because it protects the environment, and those portly "fun-employed" jobless soccer moms might just lose a few inches off their thighs by using a bicycle to pick up their benefit checks!

In response to The left is quite open about its intentions:

 It's always nice to see their nefarious tactics in writing: 

A second way [other than defeat] to demoralize conservative activists is to surround them with the echo chamber of our positions and assumptions. We need to make them feel that they are not mainstream, to make them feel isolated. We need to use the bandwagon effect in reverse...We must isolate them ideologically...
