How the MSM Anti-Saxby Chambliss Narrative Will Start

The anti-Chambliss meme will start slow. First the media will remind voters of the anti-Cleland ad Chambliss ran. You know the one. Everyone on the left claims it compared Cleland to Bin Laden, even though it didn’t.

But the media will echo that sentiment.

They’ll remind voters about how close the race was in all the polls. They go on the attack over Chambliss’s attacks. The national press will pick up the story.

Then they’ll start innocently trying to give this story credibility. They’ll suggest that Chambliss stole the election with Diebold’s help.

That’s the way the media works these days. The media, you’ll note, is not treating this Raw Story article credibly right now. Instead, they are going to let it fester. Pretty soon, however, the Raw Story article will move beyond what is largely seen as a partisan operation designed to build an anti-conservative, anti-GOP narrative, and will make its way into alternative news publications.

After it has sat a while in those publications, the MSM will declare that it simply must investigate the charges since so many people have begun talking about it. And they’ll never actually deal with the substance. They’ll just touch it enough to get a taint of illegitimacy to Chambliss’s election right around mid-October.

That’s what those people do these days when their investigative journalists resign to run as far left Democrats for Congress.
