Canadian Press Manufacturing News

So what's new?
Regardless of the questions asked or the results published ... polls are not news.

But of course real research and real reporting takes time and effort. So when you've got words to sell and space to fill in print or on the air calling up your handy polling service gets you an instant low effort excuse for putting ink on pages and sucking air up time and congesting bandwidth on the web.

And so all day long our usual collection of media clowns were right there in lockstep with the headline that told the "Really Important" story of the day ... "86% of Canadians LIKE Obama"!

Yep and of course that gives a good excuse to segue into a little of the old Bush Bashing that comes so easily to these knobs.

"By contrast, a similar poll in November 2005 indicated that 73 per cent didn't like Bush. Only 21 per cent viewed him positively." Says the CP opinion pusher.

So this is relevant to what?

Of course the Teleprompter Jesus is only less than a year into office where GW was into his second term. But that's all just the same isn't it? Because everybody knows that Bush/Cheney and company were evil personified. And "everybody" knows that because the folks in the MSM kept saying so ...... and they still are.

It's so easy to have an opinion when your facts have been selected for you and the conclusions drawn in advance by your betters. So don't forget Bush = Evil .... Obama = Good.

Also of note ... the recurring theme of Hate America comes easily to hand.

In fact that was the lead in to the story :

"What a difference a president makes. Well not that much actually, according to a new poll on Canadian attitudes toward Americans."

"The survey to be released Monday suggests Canadians view U.S. President Barack Obama far more favourably and with considerably less contempt than they did his predecessor, George W. Bush."

"At the same time, according to the poll, Obama has had little by way of a halo effect: Canadians view Americans in much the same light as they did four years ago, when Bush was at the height of his presidential reign."

Because you see ... the POTUS is a "Ruler" ... one who reigns over his dominion with absolute authority.

See how simple the world can be?

There is no Congress no Senate no Supreme Court no Constitution not Right of States no Power of The People to decide what is to be done in governance of the USA.

A KING has been coronated and that is that. So love him or hate him the despot is either benign if seen to be in favour of your peevish wants, or evil if not. And so, for the folks at Canadian Press a simple story to tell. No effort required, just pull out all the favorite themes and milk them yet again. With that added benefit of reinforcing your favorite biases among the public who obviously believes everything you tell them.

For the Great Unwashed Public .... that's you people ...

No need to think or worry. Your prejudices have been decided for you and now you know exactly what to believe. In case you missed it Obama Love In...

If you are Canadian:

1- You hate America
2- You Love Barack Obama
3- You Hate George Bush

Now guess which of these themes the majority of our Canadian Media used as the Headline of the Day?

The MSM are idiots. This was the lead news item on CJOB on my 6am drive to work this morning. Right after Mike Kelly's rant.

Not only can I not watch the TV news without vomiting, apparently the radio news is sliding into the toilet as well. I felt like calling in and commenting that "I'm sure Americans really give a shit what we think of Obama."

Just when you though it couldn't get any more stupid, they one up themselves.
