LtTE Overreactions

There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.

You claim that the left is more tech savvy than the right is simply false.

Your example of the last two elections shows flawed logic. If there was a higher tech presence it was due to a lot of young college kids, who are tech savvy, and usually liberal until they grow up. Some never do.

So the answer is no you cannot back it up other than some anecdotal things. The parkersburg tea party website??? Really?? I guess it works better that the Obamacare site and I bet it cost 600 million less to build.

Thats why its bull crap to make a statement that says that because Fox News has higher viewership numbers it means there are more out there who support that view point.

Thats what Ithink is trying to imply.

Its just not the truth and it leaves out other forms of media consumption methods.

There are glaring examples of the tech savviness on that topic alone.

One local example is the Parkersburg Tea Party website. Its a freaking wreck of a site.

Compare a for the most part left leaning site such as the Huffington Post to a site such as the Drudge Report.

The Drudge Report is horrible in its presentation.

Presentation of news and the messages they contain is everything in this day and age.

Why is it that left leaning sites are more polished and right ones take a 90's approach to how they code things?

Now granted this isn't an all across the board view on this topic. There are exceptions of course to each side.

The past two presidential election cycles.

The Democrats have had a far higher level of internet presence and connection than their Republican counterparts.

Another thing to consider is the distribution of the demographics that use information technology.

That would by far and large be in the younger age groups. The same groups that are seen to be more of a left leaning variety.

It also bears mentioning that the Tea Party is largely by demographic older people who do not consume their media the same as the those on the left.

Go to a left wing website and you will see a better built website in most cases than you would a right leaning one.

Also and I have said this before. People on the left are a heck of a lot more tech savvy than those on the right??????? Good lord talk about total crap. Myth would you care to demonstrate ANYTHING to back that little gem up????

Oh yea and there are studies out there that show people who watch Fox News are misinformed and watching Fox News makes them contentious and angry.

Seems the right loves to snort that crap like a cocaine addict.

So when the numbers show Fox News with more viewership it simply means there are more people tuning in on the TV.

Those numbers do not take into account other methods of news consumption.

Take me for example. Every single bit of news I consume is done their my computer or apps on my cell phone. I do not watch televised news at all.

" Just saw on Drudge "

Yea no conflict of interest at all in the reporting there! LOL!

If anything people are just getting fed up with bad reporting from ALL of the "news" outlets.

And I highly doubt people are flocking to Fox News either. Fair and balanced my a55! Fox News is a shill for the Republican party lock stock and barrel.

Also you can whine and cry about how slanted to the left CNN and MSNBC is. But is that really the truth? I mean if someone isn't heaping praise upon rightwing causes,issues and people then its slanted left right?

Also and I have said this before. People on the left are a heck of a lot more tech savvy than those on the right. So I am fairly confident people on the left have far more sources for their news than CNN and MSNBC. Where on the right we see a far higher incidence of people using traditional media consumption methods like TV and newspapers.

No one is questioning his right to write a letter to the editor. We are merely exercising our right to point out what we see as flaws in his arguments.

Posted 245 days ago.

Mr. Brandt has the same right to write over the line stuff as you lefties constantly do.

And your Fox News criticism is wasted hot air. Just saw on Drudge that CNN and MSNBC have lost half their viewers. Fox News is doing great. People are tired of just hearing one side of the news.

Like a dog with an old bone you are. I gave you the means to arrive at an answer and you decide to do what exactly? Nothing constructive.

How many more times you going to mention this? As many as your headlines that no one reads...including yourself?

But by all means keep it up, it will be fun to see how long you can keep going.

Letters to the Editor this week had so much in common. No sense, no importance, and nothing of value. Actually when I saw the first two, I said "Where is PR" ,and lo and behold, there he was. Three very predictable and disgusting socialist rantings.

Let me be clear. You are a hateful socialist that spent a life at the public teet and love to post you bile in the only public forum that will tolerant such tripe.

The two have nothing in common, his letter was.over.the top and you are indeed a socialist
