That stands for Assinine Acronym Alert.
I’ve mentioned my disdain for pointless abbreviation in the past. Mainly when it comes to medical references such as, ED, RLS, ADHD when they could simply be called: limp dick, jimmy feet and kid who needs a beating, repsectively.
Very recently I’ve noticed a very particular acronym cropping up with more and more frequency and it’s driving me crazy.
It stands for “Main Stream Media.”
Remember back in the day when us left wing nutcases assumed that the news media was in the pocket of giant corporations which hence put them in the pocket of the neoconservative agenda? Well apparently we were all TOTALLY wrong.
When I was perusing 9/11 Truth websites looking for evidence of mass conspiracy and trying to ferret out fascist corporations burying the truth about anything and everything I don’t recall even ONCE seeing the main stream media called anything but just that. No acronym, just the words spelled out.
So when the media apparently became an extension of the evil left during this last presidential election due to an unexplainable shift in the three hundred years old paradigm of treating minorities as sub-human to what conservative radio hosts are now calling nothing short of Obama ball licking… the media all of a sudden became: The MSM.
I am now going to go into full on liberal elitist mode and blame all annoying and pointless three letter acronyms on retarded rednecks who because of inbreeding and brain rot caused by fried twinkies cannot remember full words or phrases and must instead blame Brad Jr.’s penchant for shooting stray cats with a homemade potato gun on “The ADHD” instead of saying he has Acute Redneck Retardedness Syndrome, incurable, but treatable by a visit to Springer.
If you and a few million people have heard an acronym enough for it to become common knowledge it has arrived to you by means of a media that cannot be called anything other than mainstream.
