Even in death, Andrew Breitbart is busting down the media’s sound-proofed doors

“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”

Several friends have forwarded a story to me:  Obama may have had a little campaign help back in 2008 from the Russians.  Right now, for the vast majority of Americans, the story is a tree falling in a forest with no one around to listen.

Why?  Because the MSM is going to make sure it gets no traction.  The news outlets will report it, but they’ll bury it and make it boring.  There won’t be front page fulminations, late night jokes, hysterical headlines, or any of the fanfare necessary to get people, both inside and outside of Washington, D.C., excited.  Indeed, if the Republicans try to get a little excitement going, the media will be sure to ridicule and humiliate those Republicans and, even better, to pervert their message.  After all, thanks to the media making the message, the Catholic Church’s dismay that HHS is forcing it to pay for birth control and abortifacients has been re-broadcast as Republicans banning birth control and trying to make sex out of marriage illegal.

Andrew Breitbart understood this.  He got that the problem in America is the media, because it decides what people hear and what should excite or disgust them.  By now, thanks in part to his messaging, we all get that.  Our problem is to replicate Andrew’s genius in bypassing the media and making a big noise without it.

Sadly, I’m not a noisemaker.  I adore each and every one of you, my dear friends and readers, but I know that I’m preaching to the choir.  To the extent I make a noise, it’s a cute squeak.  I’m certainly not imaginatively busting out and overriding the white noise silence the media puts on stories that damage its chosen candidates.

Still, you can do something by making the new Breitbart website — called, simply, Breitbart — the biggest new thing and noise in the internet world.  It’s a yeller and a shouter, and it’s working hard to silence the media’s white noise, and make sure everybody hears the truth about the White House and the man in it.  In the same vein, please visit the Washington Free Beacon on a regular basis.  It’s also a wonderfully loud media alternative.


And if you want to make the Left nervous, buy the shirt.

    The LEFT and for clarification, I’ll refer to them as the “inner” LEFT, those already with power and the “outer” LEFT, those looking to take power will clash soon enough. The administration can move the G8 to Camp David, but how are they going to move the DNC? The Shia and Sunni factions of the LEFT will collide – it’s only a matter of time and severity.

    In a brief written statement from the White House, President Barack Obama announced Monday afternoon that the upcoming G8 summit will be held at Camp David, MD and not in Chicago as had been planned.
    The announcement was unexpected and came without any warning, less than 12 weeks before the dual meetings were to be held for the first-time ever on American soil.
    A building firestorm of controversy surrounded the summits; including threats by anarchist organizations to disrupt life in downtown Chicago; concerns about violence and civil unrest harming ongoing city business; gridlock and the inability to get from one place to another in Chicago.

    Republicans/conservatives are doing what … driving the get-a-way car?  Are you suggesting there’s a choice -humiliation/silence vs subjugation/silence. Many of us are damn angry and little ol’ moi is fuming, foaming at-the-mouth-fire-breathing incensed. Unless and until the same fury permeates the fiber of the GOP – nothing will change. Not tomorrow, not next week and not in November. If we can open a web site and read, just what the hell are the elected officials doing – Not reading or not giving a damn. They certainly have more access to information than we’ll ever be able to read on the web.

    Apologies for the double post. I am very cranky.
