Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead: The House Has Voted to Defund ACORN

I’ve never been so frustrated.  I just wrote an entire post about the vote by the House to defund ACORN and the when I clicked “post” it erased everything and posted a blank article.  I have a killer headache, so I’m not about to retype all of that, so I’m going to have to break my number 1 rule and….. **shutter** just post a link.  I can’t believe this is happening.  Don’t disown me readers, it will never happen again.

If your representative is one of the 75 clueless congressmen and women that voted NOT to defund ACORN, please give their office a call.  If they haven’t seen the light yet, it’s going to take some serious discussions.

Latest ACORN News Round-up: More Help For Prostitutes and a Bit of Good News

Friday’s are always very busy for me, so I didn’t have time for the post-a-thon that I went through yesterday regarding the ACORN prostitution scandal.  Many would say I’m running this into the ground, to which I’d say that I’m just picking up the slack for ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, etc.

In today’s “Spotlight on ACORN” segment, we see that the prostitution incident that happened in Baltimore was not an isolated incident, as video tape came in today of a very similar situation at the ACORN D.C. office.  Now, I’m going to have an EXTREMELY hard time being convinced that these were the only two instances of this taking place.  I’m sure less extreme cases of this occur all to often in ACORN offices across the country.

My first question is, how do these people get hired?  The answer:  The people running ACORN are even more corrupt, they’re just not blaringly obvious and they are smarter about.  The two Baltimore employees were fired yesterday because they didn’t meet ACORNS “quality standards of professionalism”, not because they advised a girl on how to successfully traffic 13 El Salvadorian teens into America.  They also issued a statement similar to Van Jones’s that said this was a smear campaign by the right and the stunt had been pulled in several offices unsuccessfully.  Well first off, using actually video footage of an event that paints a negative picture of something is not a smear campign; it is fact.  Secondly, if other offices didn’t give them aid, then those employees weren’t as corrupt and immoral as the ladies at the Baltimore office.  The fact that it was able to happen at all scares me enough.

The Good News is…..

The Census Buruea cut ties with ACORN, who was previously scheduled to help with the 2010 census.  A special thanks to Jerry Hosey (jhosey1206.wordpress.com) for alerting of this issue.  At least there have been a few reprocussions for ACORN as a group.  Maybe they’ll learn from this and not hire such bimbos to lead their offices.

My Follow Up to Yesterday: Which of the Mainstream Media Outlets Reported on the ACORN Prostitution Story Today?

Yesterday afternoon I spent several hours being totally frustrated and angry.  It all started with the ACORN story, but quickly my aggravation began to stem from something else: the mainstream media’s complete refusal to cover or even mention the story.  That quickly began the bigger deal to me.

To follow up my posts from yesterday about the blatant media bias, I did my rounds on the internet to check and see if CNN, MSNBC, and others had posted anything at all on their websites.  I figure a day and a half is more than enough to have your say, right?   Here’s what I found:

  • CNN- CNN posted a story on their website at around 9 AM CST.  The articles’s headline stated that ACORN employees had “allegedly” been caught advising a prostitute, but the actual body of the article was good, fair, and didn’t try to sugar coat anything.  CNN did, however, give Joe Wilson’s “You Lie” outburst precedence over the ACORN scandal by putting it as the featured story.  CNN earns a 6.5 out of 10 Elephants for their coverage.
  • MSNBC- This is a most deplorable network.  As of now (1 PM CST), they have yet to mention a word of this story on their website.  Their lead story is the anniversary of 9/11, wich is definitely worthy news.  However, ignoring the ACORN issue is not acceptable.  As expected, MSNBC earns 0 out of 10 Elephants for their non-coverage.
  • ABC- I was unable to find any word of the story on any of their news show websites, such as Nightline and Primetime, but their websites are rather hard to navigate so I could have missed it.  Until further inspection, they remained unrated.
  • NBC- Their Dateline website was devoid of any coverage of the story.  Their featured stories were the same as those on MSNBC.com.  NBC is awarded 0 out of 10 Elephants for their non-coverage.
  • AOL News- I realize this isn’t an official news source, but it is the number 1 internet home page in the world.  So it does have some effect.  I thought surely they’d put the story as the feature, but they opted out and instead talked about the “What Gender is She??” controversy surrounding that runner.  The ACORN story was listed as the second story in “Also in the Headlines” on the main news slide, and while it’s good it was on the main page, the article itself is very poor in quality.  A two line paragraph gives the bare bones of what happened, and it is then followed by ACORN’s rebuttle and comments on the two journalists who filmed them.  Better still is the fact that the ACORN story was featured along with Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You Lie!” outburst.  It was 5 short paragraphs of ACORN and then as soon as it finished it said in bold “Quote of the Week”, then went on to talk about Joe Wilson.  How these two are in anyway related is beyond me.  AOL gets a 4.5 out of 10 for mentioning it, but not really reporting it as its own story.

DISCLAIMER: I wrote this own my lunch break today, but for some reason it didn’t post so I just resubmitted it.  If any of the information has changed, please let me know so I’m not spreading lies.  Also, it’s my understanding that AOL took the story completely off their main page, or any of the “Featured” slides.  Unacceptable.

What do you think of this blatant disregard to real journalism?  Have these networks forgotten their jobs? Remember, it’s our responsibility to stand up and do what’s right for this country.  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

The ACORN Prostitute Scandal: It’s Our Responsibility to Inform the Public, How To Be The Difference

America,

It’s all of our responsibilities, whether conservative, liberal, independent, moderate, clueless, etc., to do what is right for our great nation.  Our founding fathers worked hard to create the America we are blessed to have today, and I honestly think they are rolling in their graves at the corruption and fraud that exists in our government.  ACORN’s been caught advising a prostitute on how to evade her taxes and keep her operation a secret, and billions of dollars are thrown away daily on worthless pet projects throughout the country and we’ve got to do something about it.  The mainstream media, including major news networks CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, etc., have not mentioned a word of the ACORN scandal.  They’ve had since 9 AM this morning to issue a statement, roll it across the news ticker, or anything at all to anounce to their viewers what is going on with our tax dollars and they have yet to do so.  Just to be clear: The major networks, with the exception to Fox News, have not reported ONE WORD on the ACORN scandal.

As citizens who love our country and don’t want to see our tax dollars funneled into corrupt organizations, we’ve got to STAND UP.  Don’t just watch from your chair and say “Well man, that’s unfortunate”.  If 99% of the media as a whole won’t put the pressure on our government, Democrats and Republicans alike, we’ve got to do it ourselves.  Don’t think you can’t make a difference.  If we all stand up against this, we won’t just make a difference, we’ll be the difference.

How to be the Difference:

  • Tell everyone you know of the ACORN story.  If you don’t want to come straight out and say “There’s a video of ACORN telling a prostitute how to cheat her taxes”, simply ask “Have you heard about ACORN” and go with it.  Totally painless, and extremely powerful.  Nothing travels faster than word of mouth.
  • Use Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, etc., to your advantage.  Twitter statuses are perfect to get the word out.  Currently, “ACORN” is barely in the top 10 subjects most mentioned in Twitter updates according to Trending Topics.  Clearly, the country does yet know.  Relay the message to everyone to tweet the story over Twitter.  If enough do it, the message will get out.  You should put a link to an article on the issue in your update, simply copy and paste one of the articles below into your Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter status.  Here are some you can use:
  • E-mail the story to everyone.  Leave it in comments on blog posts about relevant topics with one of the above links.
  • If you have a blog, by all means write about this issue.  Even a blog with two faithful readers will influence those two to stand up.  If your a member of any forums at all, find where this story will fit in and post a link to one of the above articles.
  • Send this article to everyone so they’ll know what do.  It’s not about how many readers I can get through this.  It’s for the good of America and our future.  If the only thing that happens because of this is the termination of the two employees, then no one will have learned anything and it will surely happen again.  If for some reason your anti The Conservative Journal, I don’t care if you copy and paste this and post it on your blog or e-mail it to a friend.  I’d love to get credit for it, but If you will only post or send this if I don’t get any it’s worth the loss.

Please do this for the good of America.  I’m making a commitment to do all that I can to get this story out.  I’m going to keep drilling this to you and other readers of this blog daily.  It’s necessary that this story gets out if we want any of it to get better.  Let your voice be heard and be the difference.
