When this election is over, one of the lessons that will be learned by the mainstream media is that they no longer have a toe-hold on how Americans receive their news. Never before – in a way that has taken Democrats off stride – have we seen the confluence of an aggressive online community, led by Breitbart, and an aggressive campaign team not willing to cede an inch of ground to Democrats. This combination has created a new political reality. We no longer allow the mainstream media to define the political realities in America. The rise of Breitbart, Drudge and others, combined with an aggressive Romney campaign is a powerful tool in the arsenal of the conservative movement.
…The governor will no longer allow the mainstream media to dictate the terms of this debate. This is just the beginning… We are witnessing the rise of the center right media.
Romney's made a deal with the Devil for his soul, and handed over his media operation to the Breitbart crew. They are the new reality for Team Romney. The message is clear to the rest of the Village: suck up to the Birthers, the racists, the tinfoil lunatics and the nutjobs or be cut off as "in the tank for Obama" and become the enemy of tens of millions of slack-jawed drones.
Mitt's boys have decided the media no longer matters...they have Matt Drudge and the blogs. I'd laugh, but our Stockholm Syndrome Villagers will go right along with this and America will suffer as these propaganda merchants will be running the campaign narrative for the rest of the year.
One side believes in a free and open press. The other side believes in Drudge alerts. Enjoy, Village. You have outlived your usefulness to the Republican Party.
Will you defend yourselves or buckle under and be their patsies?
