Update: 67% have unfavorable view of ACORN: Ace in the Hole: Breitbart on ACORN and the media

Update: Rasmussen polled on ACORN and oh boy what results!

Are the public interested, despite the virtual blackout of all coverage on network TV?

Seven-out-of-10 voters (70%) say they are following recent news stories about ACORN at least somewhat closely, with 41% following very closely. Only eight percent (8%) say they aren’t following the news about ACORN at all.

Is the investigation of ACORN a result of ‘racism’, political attacks or ACORN’s illegal activity? Hmmm?

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of all voters also believe that the ongoing criminal investigations of ACORN in several states are primarily the result of illegal behavior on the organization’s part. Twenty percent (20%) say the investigations are politically motivated, and 23% are undecided.

What do people think of ACORN? EVEN Liberals don’t like it!

Only 15% of voters now have even a somewhat favorable opinion of ACORN, while 67% have an unfavorable view of the group. Those figures include only three percent (3%) with a very favorable opinion and 47% with a very unfavorable view.

Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans, 73% of voters not affiliated with either major political party, and 44% of Democrats have an unfavorable view of ACORN.

Liberal voters are evenly divided—35% favorable and 38% unfavorable. Eighty-two percent (82%) of conservative voters give ACORN unfavorable marks along with 60% of political moderates.

Should funding be cut off? Oh yeah baby!

Fifty-one percent (51%) of U.S. voters now say Congress should end all federal funding of the controversial community organizing group ACORN.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 17% favor continued taxpayer support of the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now. Thirty-two percent (32%) are not sure

Breitbart of BigGovernment.com nails the PseudoElite Intellectual Media’s utter failure and their abandonment of their responsibilities to the people.

If you haven’t seen Billy Wilder’s classic, ‘Ace in the Hole’ it is a ripping indictment of media. It was considered too jaded and cynical for it time. It certainly applies to the rats who call themselves journOlists today. Film synopsis from golemmingsgo:

Unscrupulous reporter Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas) delays the rescue of a man trapped in an ancient Indian mine to grab a big story, literally creating a media circus. Tatum, the sheriff, and even the man’s wife (Jan Sterling) are out to make a buck from his misfortune.

Billy Wilder’s acid media satire forever branded him the sometimes overstated label of “cynic.” Ace in the Hole was too acerbic for 1951 movie-goers and reviled on its release. It has since garnered critical acclaim and a cult following.

What a bunch of tools our current batch of PseudoElite Intellectual media are, and ironically they are PROUD of it! the media that gets free broadcast channels today does not deserve it, they have abrogated their duties to the people, they should turn the airwaves over to the newsradio and blogs that do their job for them:
