Us Magazine is just another example why the old media is dying.

The backlash against the mainstream media is well underway over the "historic" negative bias against a candidate that hasn't done anyting to warrant it. The only people that are too blind to see it is of course the media itself. Two weeks ago when Us Magazine tried to do a "dirty bomb" story and cover on Sarah Palin, they actually thought they were going to inflict damage on Sarah Palin and in the process get away with it. Well it looks like the "geniuses" at Us Magazine struck out twice. Not only did their hit piece DIDN'T hurt the favorable perception of Sarah Palin in the eyes of mainstream Americans, it actually increased it. On top of that, outraged subscribers have cancelled their subscriptions to the rag. Some industry insider figures have the cancellations as high as 10,000. Us Magazine is just another example in a long list of examples why people don't trust the mainstream media anymore. It really astonishes me why liberals still can't figure out why so many people watch and trust Fox News over CNN and MSNBC COMBINED! It's really a simple concept. People actually just want the news and not activist journalism bias passed off as the news. MSNBC once had the two obnoxious loudmouths Keith Olberman and Chris Mathews working as "anchors. I'm not saying it was a dumb move by MSNBC execs, well actually I am saying it was a dumb move and then some. Think of it this way. What if Fox News hired Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter to be their news anchors? The credibility of Fox would go down the tubes in a heartbeat. That is exactly what happened to MSNBC. In business the saying is "give the people what they want, and they will lead a path to your door". Ten years ago Fox News was created, and they have been number ever since. The people got what they wanted, fair and balanced news.

Smiling. People are tired of foolishness. I'm glad that magazine and other media that insult our intelligence are being to feel it in their pocketbooks. That is the only language these people understand.
