Manufacturing Consent

Manufacturing Consent January 26, 2012

As you know, I think it is insane to support Gingrich, so I certainly don’t disagree with Drudge’s obvious bias against him. But it is nonethless fascinating to watch Drudge pull out the stops to manufacture consent among his readers. The headlines this morning are like a barrage:

NEWT FLASHBACK 1983: REAGAN RESPONSIBLE FOR NATIONAL ‘DECAY’…
NEWT 1986: ‘The Reagan administration has failed, is failing…
NEWT 1988: ‘If Bush runs as continuation of Reaganism he will lose’…
INSIDER: GINGRICH REPEATEDLY INSULTED REAGAN
GINGRICH OPENS DOOR FOR ILLEGALS…
R. EMMETT TYRRELL: William Jefferson Gingrich…
COULTER: RE-ELECT OBAMA: VOTE NEWT!…
DeLay: ‘He’s not really a conservative’…
FL Poll: Romney Stronger than Gingrich in General Election vs. Obama…
CNN: Gingrich admits his ABC claim was false during debate…
Gingrich tells UNIVISION: No perjury during my divorce depositions…
Marianne Gingrich lawyer: ‘He was never deposed’…
FLASHBACK 1998: Gingrich Orchestrated GOP Ads Recalling Clinton-Lewinsky Affair…

He’s not like a real journalist or anything, Just an aggregator and he can promote whatever agenda he likes. But it is fascinating to me how transparently he does promote it and how obviously panicked he is about the possibility of the GOP foolishly nominating Gingrich.
