The Media's Power To Influence Waning, Waning...

Via The PJ Tatler:

...I’m surprised CNN published this.

Americans’ overall attitudes toward gun laws have not budged an inch in the wake of the shootings in Arizona, according to a new national poll.

CNN tries to gussy up the findings with a little spin.

But a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that majority of the public favors restrictions on semi-automatic guns and high-capacity ammunition clips, as well as background checks and limits on the number of guns that can be purchased.

And that’s unchanged over the past couple of years. The MSM’s power to persuade ain’t what it used to be. MSM misreporting on Tucson hasn’t moved the gun control needle at all...

Well, the were somewhat successful in driving Sarah Palin's approval numbers down to her lowest level yet, which accomplishes...absolutely nothing, as she was unlikely to be elected president anyway, and will still remain a powerful voice in the conservative arena. More likely, the umpteenth attempt to humiliate Sarah Palin by the media will likely result in a boomerang effect, as the very middle Americans that the media is trying to influence are sickened by their non-stop assault and will be drawn to her out of sympathy and a "this could happen to me" mindset.

What's next? Claiming the "
Philadelphia Strangler" was a Tea Party member and a Palin contributor? Remember, whenever you think these guys have hit bottom, remind yourself their morality is a endless dark chasm, and there is still a long, long way down...
