Media's mass hypnosis

| Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Reading Ralph R. Reiland's column “Too ‘smart' for his own good?” (Nov. 11 and TribLIVE.com), I am reminded of the real American political debacle that is Barry Obama.

With no real resume, leadership track record or anything akin to JFK's “Profiles in Courage”/PT-109 service to our country, this novice was relegated by the media to be the next great FDR/JFK rolled into one. The media elevated this man based on a single speech and his extremist, leftist “progressive” tilt.

It is repugnant that the media can accomplish this type of mass hypnosis. More media Kool-Aid is being brewed to launch Hillary Clinton to the White House.

The media may be better served by attempting to deduce what power is behind Obama and what entities are behind the scenes, outrageously manipulating both the press and the serfs for a complete takeover of America for global wealth/health sharing.

The mood in America seems to be, “We want our country back, but we don't know who took it.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
