9. It's Forbidden Fruit...
Kinda like when your parents say don't and you have to find out why. When Rush says CNN is bad and evil, that's almost a buzzword now to send the dittoheads over to watch Darren Kagan or Carol Lin for their latest forbidden fruit special spin. Yes, very clever and devious.

I suggest you watch the spin cycle/blast fax machine in full tilt these days. It starts with rumors the night before on Drudge or some place out of left morning the story is planted onto newspapers then onto C-Span (Washington Journal) and CNN (I'm not even gonna deal Faux into this, it's a given that by 6am Ailes has spoken to Rove)...the the story moves onto Rush and hate radio, where the story becomes molded into the spin and hardened, then sent on to the local stations and hammered even more.

By the evening news that little item the night before now has developed into a big one that still hasn't been thoroughly checked and the lie or distortion outpaces the facts...but that doesn't stop the evening newscasts to regergitate the story, then it's onto the evening food fights where the regergitation is repackaged and chewed around now if the person whose the target hasn't responded, they're dead meat.

Meanwhile the story or wedge issue is being set up for the next day. Rove has many proxies planted in high places who all have been schooled in the Atwater/Gingrich school of tunnel-vision and manipulation.
