Totalitarian Media makes Classic Totalitarian Mistake

There were a lot of words spo­ken about yesterday’s debate on the net (some by me) but one of the most impor­tant sen­tences was spo­ken by Robert Stacy McCain last night in an unex­tra­or­di­nary update to his live­post:

UPDATE 9:09 p.m. ET: Mitt opens with humor­ous anniver­sary con­grat­u­la­tions, then goes into his 5-​Point Plan for eco­nomic recov­ery. Hav­ing fol­lowed Mitt on the trail, I’ve heard this a zil­lion times, but for many of the 50 mil­lion peo­ple watch­ing, it’s new.

That’s a totally unre­mark­able state­ment after all Stacy has been to rally after rally in Ohio. I’ve heard the pitch of the five point plan twice myself, once at St. Anselm and once at Hol­man Sta­dium in Nashua.

And I’ve even posted video that might seem famil­iar if you saw last night’s debate from St. Anselm

And Nashua

Noth­ing that peo­ple at the ral­lies haven’t heard a mil­lion times before.

But to a lot of the pub­lic it was all new, com­bined those two clips have less than 300 views., why? Because the MSM that has been “cov­er­ing” the race has not been report­ing it .

In fact on Morn­ing Joe today they actu­ally had the audac­ity to ask if this Mitt Rom­ney would show up on the cam­paign trail. That prompted this tweet from me

and Stacy McCain Backed me up

That’s the real dirty secret of this debate, not that there is a dif­fer­ent Mitt Rom­ney at the debate then on the cam­paign trail, but that the Mitt Rom­ney at this debate bears no resem­blance to the car­i­ca­ture that the left, the media and the 30 sec­onds ads have painted.

The Total­i­tar­ian Media and Left made the mis­take that all total­i­tar­i­ans make, they have heard their own pro­pa­ganda so often and have lived in their own bub­ble so long they actu­ally have started to believe their own spin.

The Iron cur­tain was solid right up until it fell, the Berlin Wall was a death bar­rier right up until chunks of it became col­lec­tors items, the Soviet Union was going to out­per­form the west right up until the moment when it collapsed.

And the press’ con­ven­tional wis­dom on Mitt Rom­ney was gospel, right up until the sec­ond it was not.

Shame­less mon­e­tary plug

I have gone and cov­ered and reported on these things the MSM has ignored, unlike the MSM I do not get a pay­check from a cor­po­ra­tion, my remu­ner­a­tion comes from my adver­tis­ers and tip jar hit­ters. If you think this report­ing has been of value, feel free to kick in any amount you think it is worth.

Update: Stacy McCain Nails it in his Amer­i­can Spec­ta­tor Piece

If ever there were a night when con­ser­v­a­tives wanted to watch MSNBC, this was it — an all-​you-​can-​eat buf­fet of schaden­freude, as one after another of the lib­eral network’s per­son­al­i­ties tried to come to grips with what was per­haps the most one-​sided pres­i­den­tial debate since JFK beat a shifty-​looking Richard Nixon in 1960. “In terms of debate tac­tics, Rom­ney was on the offense most of the night,” a glum Howard Fine­man acknowl­edged, while a shell-​shocked Chuck Todd admit­ted that the result “auto­mat­i­cally ele­vates Rom­ney as a cred­i­ble alter­na­tive” and later added, in ref­er­ence to the Obama camp’s post-​debate mood: “They know they lost tonight.”

I remem­ber get­ting back to the house with Stacy McCain & Dan Collins from the Scott Brown Vic­tory Party at 3:48 AM for the 2nd day in a row after an early morn­ing. We were all exhausted but Stacy put on MSNBC and we all stayed up long enough to watch Keith Olber­man Squirm. That is what last night was.

There were a lot of words spoken about yesterday’s debate on the net (some by me) but one of the most important sentences was spoken by Robert Stacy McCain last night in an unextraordinary update to his livepost:

UPDATE 9:09 p.m. ET: Mitt opens with humorous anniversary congratulations, then goes into his 5-Point Plan for economic recovery. Having followed Mitt on the trail, I’ve heard this a zillion times, but for many of the 50 million people watching, it’s new.

That’s a totally unremarkable statement after all Stacy has been to rally after rally in Ohio. I’ve heard the pitch of the five point plan twice myself, once at St. Anselm and once at Holman Stadium in Nashua.

And I’ve even posted video that might seem familiar if you saw last night’s debate from St. Anselm

And Nashua

Nothing that people at the rallies haven’t heard a million times before.

But to a lot of the public it was all new, combined those two clips have less than 300 views., why? Because the MSM that has been “covering” the race has not been reporting it .

In fact on Morning Joe today they actually had the audacity to ask if this Mitt Romney would show up on the campaign trail. That prompted this tweet from me

and Stacy McCain Backed me up

That’s the real dirty secret of this debate, not that there is a different Mitt Romney at the debate then on the campaign trail, but that the Mitt Romney at this debate bears no resemblance to the caricature that the left, the media and the 30 seconds ads have painted.

The Totalitarian Media and Left made the mistake that all totalitarians make, they have heard their own propaganda so often and have lived in their own bubble so long they actually have started to believe their own spin.

The Iron curtain was solid right up until it fell, the Berlin Wall was a death barrier right up until chunks of it became collectors items, the Soviet Union was going to outperform the west right up until the moment when it collapsed.

And the press’ conventional wisdom on Mitt Romney was gospel, right up until the second it was not.

Shameless monetary plug

I have gone and covered and reported on these things the MSM has ignored, unlike the MSM I do not get a paycheck from a corporation, my remuneration comes from my advertisers and tip jar hitters. If you think this reporting has been of value, feel free to kick in any amount you think it is worth.

Update: Stacy McCain Nails it in his American Spectator Piece

If ever there were a night when conservatives wanted to watch MSNBC, this was it — an all-you-can-eat buffet of schadenfreude, as one after another of the liberal network’s personalities tried to come to grips with what was perhaps the most one-sided presidential debate since JFK beat a shifty-looking Richard Nixon in 1960. “In terms of debate tactics, Romney was on the offense most of the night,” a glum Howard Fineman acknowledged, while a shell-shocked Chuck Todd admitted that the result “automatically elevates Romney as a credible alternative” and later added, in reference to the Obama camp’s post-debate mood: “They know they lost tonight.”

I remember getting back to the house with Stacy McCain & Dan Collins from the Scott Brown Victory Party at 3:48 AM for the 2nd day in a row after an early morning. We were all exhausted but Stacy put on MSNBC and we all stayed up long enough to watch Keith Olberman Squirm. That is what last night was.
