It seems that the GALGANOV DOT COM YOU-TUBE VIDEO was a success, and just about all the FEEDBACK was from positive . . . to REALLY positive, which is more encouragement than I need to carry-on.
THERE WAS ONLY ONE CRITICISM – AND ONE SNIDE REMARK:
One person wrote negatively about the wind-noise, with another suggesting that I “spend a buck and invest in a (sic) wind screen for your mike.” I don’t know if that remark which appeared on the COMMENT page, was tongue-in-cheek or a put-down, so I’ll take it as tongue-in-cheek.
Several visitors to the BLOG suggested that the occasional wind gust was good CINEMA-VERITE (my expression), to which I agree . . . but we will try to do something about it in the next Galganov.com Video Editorial.
What everyone agreed on, at least those who commented on the subject . . . was how much they liked seeing the horses, with several people asking me to show more of them, which is something I might consider.
IN ALL . . . the first Video Attempt was well worth the cost and the effort.
WHY FROM TIME TO TIME . . . I’M HARD ON FOX NEWS:
From time to time, I receive several emails asking why I’m hard on FOX News, amongst a TON of other emails that openly disparage FOX News, or more succinctly, several of their show-hosts and “contributors”.
HERE’S WHY . . . THAT FROM TIME TO TIME – I DO IT:
BEFORE THERE WAS FOX NEWS, there was no Television Media to tell the REAL story and TRUTH of Conservative America. And left to the LEFTIST News Media (CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS . . . etc), the impression all Americans and the rest of the world came away with, was the DE-FACTO impression that all Conservatives were at worst . . . RED-NECKED, MISOGYNIST AND RACIST. And at best – GREEDY businessmen out to rip-off as many people as they could, while polluting and raping the world.
WITH THE HELP OF THE LEFTIST MEDIA . . . Hilary Clinton for example, had huge successes in spreading the BIG LIE of the VAST Right Wing Conspiracy. And until FOX News came along, there was very limited access for Conservatives to defend against all the LIES.
AND THAT’S WHY I CRITICIZE FOX NEWS:
Unlike any other Media around the world, but most specifically in the USA, FOX News has created an OBLIGATION FOR THEMSELVES – that they CANNOT walk away from or take for granted . . . because, without FOX News, all of the Conservative Media COMBINED, cannot match the VAST LEFT WING CONSPIRACY.
I have no use for this FOX News FAIR & BALANCED nonsense, other than to show how ridiculous, dishonest, and ANTI-AMERICA the LEFT really is. But, when FOX News starts to employ many of these LEFTISTS as full time members of its “on-air staff”, giving them credibility . . . I DRAW THE LINE.
WHY . . . BILL O’REILLY?
If you’ve been following this BLOG for a while, you will have noticed that I spend from little to no time and effort criticizing any of the Media in general, but, when I do, it’s almost always at FOX News . . . and very often on the rare occasions when I do criticize FOX News – it’s generally directed at Bill O’reilly.
1 – O’Reilly is SMUG and ARROGANT, which is really not a reason for me to waste KEY STROKES on him. But, he is also a KISS-ASS for Obama, making-out that everyone who legitimately hammers this MOST UN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT IS DISRESPECTFUL.
A perfect example of what I am writing about . . . has to do with a segment on O’Reilly’s show, when Jesse Waters referred to the President, simply as Obama, and was IMMEDIATELY DRESSED DOWN IN A MOST HUMILIATING WAY by O’Reilly, live on air, as if Waters had called Obama the worst name imaginable.
But, during the same show, on a different segment, O’Reilly made the EXACT SAME REFERENCE to the President as just OBAMA . . . TALK ABOUT BEING A HYPOCRITE.
2 – BUT HERE’S THE REAL REASON . . . O’Reilly denigrates BLOGGERS, I imagine, because he thinks he owns the TRUTH, and BLOGGERS are inferior to someone like him.
In reality though, I think O’Reilly insults and demeans BLOGGERS, because he simply doesn’t like to share the stage with people he thinks are BENEATH him . . . and that bothers me more than just somewhat.
NO ONE HAS A LOCK ON THE TRUTH . . . NOT EVEN BILL O’REILLY:
For other STUDIO-LEFTISTS on FOX News . . . I think people like Geraldo Rivera for example – who calls himself a Republican, but admits he VOTED FOR OBAMA TWICE, and takes a LEFTIST position on just about every debate, is an insult to FOX News’ audience – INCLUDING ME, who have been INSULTED BY THE LEFT MORE THAN LONG ENOUGH.
I have no reason in the world to want to see or hear the likes of Alan Colmes, Kirsten Powers, Bob Beckel (if he ever gets back), Juan Williams, or any of the other FOX News Leftists, since I don’t need them rubbing my nose in it.
BUT . . . Since FOX News is the ONLY National Conservative Television Broadcaster, which also happens to have a STELLAR CONSERVATIVE CAST, I just grit my teeth, bear it, and from time to time voice some frustration.
SO . . . IF OCCASIONALLY I THROW IN A COMMENT ABOUT FOX, YOU NOW KNOW WHY:
On behalf of all the people who helped support this BLOG over the past, including this week . . . THANK YOU – IT REALLY HELPS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
