Kirsten Powers: Liberals Shun Opposing Views Because They’re Used to Controlling the Media

KIRSTEN POWERS, DAILY BEAST: You know, I have to say this actually jibes with sort of real life experience that I have found, especially as I came into more contact with conservatives as I got older because I used to really live very much in a Democratic bubble when I worked in politics. I did find that they were much more open to sort of hearing other viewpoints, where I think liberals because they are so used to controlling all the media pretty much, academia, that for them when they hear things that don’t jibe with what they want to hear, it’s very disconcerting and unsettling to them. And it doesn’t surprise me that they’re really less interested, whereas conservatives are kind of used to it. They’ve lived in a world where pretty much, you know, the whole media has been sort of liberal.

    Every libtard I’ve ever met, flies to pieces when you challenge their “facts,” or their worldview. They really ARE allergic to REALITY… :roll:

    It’s a start at your rehabilitation Kirsten. But pretty and loquacious will only get you so far with people that think.

    And when or if you finally do come around just please, by all that is holy, don’t become just another RINO or neocon like Michael Medved. They are all that is wrong with the GOP.

    When she first started on Fox she was one of those fit throwing libs. As time has gone along, she has gotten much more reasonable in her arguments. She is still a lib but not so much a raving mad lib.

    Not a Kirsten Powers fan. Anybody who would date Anthony Weiner is suspect to me.

    I’m not buying Powers’ bullshit…she’s just smart enough to realize that if she plays her cards right, she could become Fox’s white, female Wan Williams.

    And speaking of Fox, I just love this video in which the beautiful and brilliant Megyn Kelly destroys Powers:

    WHOA. Kirsten Powers “dated” Anthony Weiner?

    That’s a serious, fatal flaw in judgement. Not to mention horribly bad taste, nauseating, vile, disturbing, hideous and pestilential.

    Well she’s done, forever contaminated. Might as well have copulated with a feral dog.

    This was on O’Really last night.

    It was connected to the story about a study by some college report on how liberals were more likely, by a WIDE margain compared to conservatives, to “unfriend” people on social websites if the person disagrees with them about ANYTHING especially political views.

    Lady McCrotch has been unfriended by 2 of “them” already on Facebook.

    I don’t socialize internet-wise anywhere but here, if you consider this socializing.

    Just like moslems, they seek to kill or destroy all those who might try to help them recover from their mental illness.

    No doubt Kirsten is A-OK with this view of the media, too.

    She is just posturing to be ahead of the curve when the conservative ascension kicks into gear.

    Another sign of our decline? “Journalists” who write like friggin’ 9 year olds.
