A 'text-book' Illustration Of How The Liberal Media Can Spin A Positive Into A Negative For A RepublicanTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media, Political News and commentaries
From Mark Finkelstein over at NewsBusters:
Mike Allen of Politico has provided a text-book illustration of how the liberal media can spin a positive into a negative for a Republican. Instead of focusing on the political pluses of Chris Christie's endorsement of Mitt Romney, Allen has twisted the event into a negative that reveals the "very ruthless" efficiency of the Romney campaign. Moreover, if there's a politician around today who thinks for himself, it's Christie. Yet Allen alleges that rather than making a reasoned decision, Christie was "roped" into endorsing Romney.As Finkelstein goes on to note, Allen uttered not a single word as to how the Christie endorsement might help Romney with voters or donors -- just negative spin on the process and reference to Christie acting as an "attack dog," and suggested he might have been auditioning for the VP slot on Romney's ticket.
Allen made his sour-grape remarks on today's Morning Joe.
This is just the beginning of what is to become a deluge of leftist media's negative spin meant to minimize and derail each and every GOP advantage in the 2012 election. Allen's attitude and spin says it all.
