Forgive The Media For They know Not What They Do
Years from now everyone will see this is the time where media has completely failed and the time journalism died.
Remember the speech Obama gave in Columbus Ohio saying that 25 police were being saved because of the bogus stimulus bill? Well, it seems these 25 officers were laid off before they even hit the streets. Because of a budget crises there, Columbus may have to lay off an additional 324 police officers.
Obama continually says he has created or saved 150,000 jobs and the next theft of America will save or create 600,000 jobs this summer. Yet there is no proof of this has happen. I sure haven’t seen any of this happening here in IL. The press wont confront Obama on where he got his figures from so the sheep blindly believe what Obama claims. After all, if the press doesn’t pressure Obama for answers, it must be true.
Back in Feb Obama told everyone Caterpillar would rehire some of their laid off employees if the stimulus passed. At the time Caterpillar had announced they were laying off 22,000 jobs. The problem is, the CEO of Caterpillar said no such thing and instead said they were going to have more layoffs before rehiring.
May 17 Caterpillar announced they were laying off another 2500 jobs. June 13. Caterpillar announces even more lay offs though haven’t said how many this time.
The unemployment figures are a little over 9% but the real unemployment numbers are closer to 15% When Bush was president with unemployment at 5% the MSM had a cow over it. The world was coming to an end. Now its not a big deal. To the media, things are beginning to turn around because Obama says so.
Body counts. Every day in the news if a member of the military was killed in Iraq or Afghanistan we would have to hear about the body count since the war started then hear about how the war is a failure. Ted Koppel would name all the men and women killed. Now there is silence. No more daily body counts.
Obama is sending another 30,000 troops to Afghanistan and not a peep from the media. No outrage. No Worst person in the world from bathtub boy, hide under his desk Olbermann.
GM and Chrysler shutting down dealerships by orders of Obama and nothing about the ones being shut down were Republican contributors. The dealerships that sent money to the Democrats were shut down because they didn’t send enough. The other way around and the media would be calling for investigations. There would be televised hearings.
The media has this fetish about anyone running for president to release all papers. That is everyone BUT Obama. Obama has released nothing but his taxes. Everything else, he has hired lawyers to keep them under wraps and the media ignores it. If I were a reporter I would be curious of why.
Obama said over and over during his campaign he would NOT raise taxes except for people earning over $200,000. Yet the first thing he did was raise the cigarette tax. Now he is coming after your health insurance, retired people, and even more “sin tax.” With lie after lie the media refuses to call him on any of them.
Since Obama took over reporters and news commentators have a really tough job. They have to some how, day after day cover for Obama and spin the stories trying with all their might to look and sound sincere without looking or sounding like dumb asses. From what I have seen, they have even failed at that.
