Voters aren’t just uninformed about key issues and people, they are deliberately misinformed by the media to ignore faults of Democratic candidates and even to attribute them to Republicans. And they are well-informed about irrelevant issues and false attacks.
When you start watching this video you might just get the impression that it is mocking ignorant people and that both sides could do that (although Snoop Dogg sure is a winsome and compelling representative of all things Obama). But keep watching and you’ll find out there is much more to this proof of media bias and how it is helping destroy the country.
Finding people who don’t know about Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, who controlled Congress at the time, etc. would be like shooting fish in a barrel. But it wasn’t just that they were extremely uninformed on important players and issues. Consider the following:
- They were extremely well-informed on less important issues such as which candidate had the daughter with an out-of-wedlock child and whose political party paid $150,000 for her clothes.
- They were extremely misinformed on many things about Palin and McCain, such as what Palin really said about Russia. Why? Because as part of the Leftist Media’s literal 18-to-1 negative to positive stories on Palin the Big 3 networks all repeated a Saturday Night Live skit that mocked Palin by distorting the truth.
- They were extremely uninformed about negatives about the Democratic candidates, so much so that they assumed the negatives were about Palin or McCain. They assumed that Palin made the “57 states” comment that Obama made (though ironically they realized how idiotic the statement was). They didn’t know Obama got his opponents kicked off his ballot but assumed it was Palin or McCain. They didn’t even know Biden quit a presidential campaign for plagiarizing a speech. What could have been more relevant? They didn’t know that Obama claimed that he would deliberately bankrupt the coal industry. They had never heard of Bill Ayers. And so on.
512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points
97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates
Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions
57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)
81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
Here’s the 2012 version: Most voters don’t know how wildly successful Romney has been in business, in running the Olympics, how generous he has been, etc.
If you only consume the Liberal media then I can guarantee you that you are ill-informed. Don’t be a tool.

Excellent post, Neil! What was funny was how in the video they cited CNN, PBS, NPR, New York Times as their news sources.
After watching the video here is my conclusion. We’re toast!
