Mainstream Media Will Do Anything To Re-Elect Obama
October 2, 2012 4 Comments
The mainstream press has spent the last four years refusing to cover any negative story about President Obama. Take the Fast and Furious scandal as an example. The mainstream press completely ignored the story while Congress was uncovering the absurdity of the entire program to say nothing of the cover up. It wasn’t until the House decided to hold Eric Holder in contempt that the mainstream press was suddenly interested and then only to attack House Republicans. By not covering Fast and Furious, the mainstream press set the GOP up to look out of control in holding Holder in contempt. To people who only get news from NBC, holding Holder in contempt looked like a rush to accuse even though the investigation was over a year old.
Univision is the first network to actually investigate the Fast and Furious program. They’ve found even more weapons headed to Mexico, to say nothing of the fact that the program extended beyond Arizona. They linked Fast and Furious weapons to the deaths of dozens of Mexican teenagers. Univision is a spanish language channel which apparently gets high ratings in the spanish speaking community. No doubt this report will hurt Obama with Hispanics. So of course the mainstream press wouldn’t want to piggyback on Univision’s story by broadcasting it to the rest of the country. The mainstream outlets remain silent on Fast and Furious.
We have a law in this country which prevents the Federal government from sending money to countries that engage in child military service. President Obama has rightly opposed child soldiers declaring it to be slavery. Unfortunately Obama has provided waivers to just about every country that we know uses child soldiers. Sudan, Libya, Congo all of the countries we know engage in this barbaric practice have received waivers and are getting American tax money or are allowed to purchase American weapons. Where is the media on this issue? Oh wait, that’s right, funding countries that have child soldiers will hurt Obama so the press has buried the story and won’t report it.
In Libya the President has lied to the American people about the cause of Ambassador Stevens death. He spent the better part of two weeks claiming it was because of some silly video no one had ever seen on You Tube. His administration later admitted it was a terrorist attack that had nothing to do with the video but the President blamed the video anyway in his UN speech. Where was the mainstream press? They didn’t show his administration disagreeing with him. They didn’t wonder what the true story was. The mainstream press continued to report the video story as though it were fact. Apparently the mainstream press is uninterested in Libya informing us of an impending attack 3 days in advance. They’re even less interested in figuring out why Stevens was in Benghazi, which is known to be a very dangerous place, without security. Exposing Obama lying to the public weeks before the election might hurt his chances, so the media remains silent.
In our lifetimes we have never seen the press as openly partisan as it is today. Even Democrat Pat Caddell is appalled by the stunts the mainstream press is pulling. What the press is doing is pretty clear. They’re burying bad news for the President to further his re-election chances. They aren’t reporting on scandals within this administration, they sure aren’t doing any investigative reporting. It takes Univision, a spanish language channel, to show the public the harm caused by Fast and Furious. None of the mainstream networks will touch the story. The networks have allowed Obama to lie about the Libya attack without even the slightest hint of questioning his story. Can you imagine them doing this to a Republican? There is little doubt that the media would jump at the chance to investigate Republican scandal, the media would do it with a certain glee in their voices. But not Obama, they’re silent.
These issues only scratch the surface of the problem. We could take about the mainstream media’s absurdly biased polls that over sample Democrats by 9-12 points on a regular basis. We can acknowledge that Obama is winning right now but why must the media go over the top with such absurdly biased polls? Worse, they not only report the polls as fact but CBS declared the race over last week. NBC manipulated video and 911 calls on the Trayvon Martin case, they took sides on what should have been a straight reporting issue. You and I can come up with dozens of other examples. Until the media just admits that they’re liberal, the charge of bias will continue. It’s time to do away with the lie that is an unbiased press. The press is biased, it’s time for everyone to admit what they are.
