16. Hate Media's Credibility Gap...

While it's not apparent yet, there's a fallout going on within the great unhinged about how their "media" acted in the lead-up to Willard's disastrous blow-out. They truly didn't see it coming and now that the anger is subsiding, there are many, like York, who are asking how this could have happened. They're looking at their bubble and wondering how it didn't protect them from reality...how they felt victory despite all the polls and other data that was showing otherwise. A lot of this has to do with the right wing's hatred of any media that doesn't tell them what they want to hear. Bullshit Mountain and hate radio fed off this distrust to mislead their followers into the false perception that a majority hated President Obama as much as they did and there would be a "chick fil a" wave of "conservatives" showing up at the polls to sweep Willard and others to victory.

Right now the shock of being deceived by the "media" they created to tell them what they wanted to hear is settling in. The battle for the "soul" (if such a thing exists) of the rushpublican party has started as the "establishment" in the beltway try to demonize Faux and hate radio as the cause of last week's loss and hate radio, led by rushbo, attack back. I'm looking forward to a nice, long and nasty fight ahead...
