Seems like every social networking site I go to, if it’s a political discussion, within 2 or 3 posts, someone starts spouting lies, unverified rumors and namecalling (McBush, etc.) And a third of the negative stories on web posts and blogs are from the same few political sites, all saying the same thing.
There’s a reason.
These are all coming from the same group of radical activists who have no moral reserves, but are willing to say anything to discredit the other side. It doesn’t have to be true; it jsut has to be said, and repeated, until the mass population picks it up in their subconscious.
Seems it comes from Daily Kos, which had been rumored to be a legitimate news aggrigator (although I had my doubts). It was posted on Sep 12, but is already gone. You’ve got to get the Google cache version to read it. Here’s what it said:
Viral attacks are where it’s at in 2008. Emails, blogs, online news sources. Content flows upstream in today’s media environment.
We can be the gun.
Indeed, if Barack can’t or won’t do the dirty work, then we have to do it for him. No excuses. No more hand-wringing.
Let’s get to work.
How, you ask? Simple.
It’s all about finding really damaging stuff–news stories, YouTubes, informative blog posts. And then circulating those with the intent of having them work their way up the media stream. Email it to your friends. Email it to any journalists whose email you have. Post it in diaries or blog comments.
See that? Find damaging stuff from blog posts and YouTube. Doesn’t have to be true. Just have to be able to link to it.
