The Policy Project ^ | 13 December 2008 | Patrick Gibson

Posted on 12/13/2008 11:14:07 PM PST by nysuperdoodle

Chicago has gone quiet this weekend. Investigative journalists, having spent the last few months in Alaska and shadowing plumbers in Ohio, are finally starting to turn their attention to the newly elected president. As the Obammunist camp draws their wagons into a circle and become more defensive with a press that is showing signs of slowly waking up.

The media has dutifully lain themselves out as Axelrod’s astroturf, so it is more likely they are gathering to take their assignments in obfuscating the facts and evidence which would implicate the Marxist squirrel as a product of Chicago criminal politics.

I have never in my whole life seen the media cover up for a candidate in this way ever. It’s really disgusting, they didn’t even cover up for Clinton this bad. Obama is a fraud and a marxist and they don’t care, as long as they get their liberal agenda across they can care less what Obama does to this country. I am surprised they even reported on Blago at all, that surprised me more then anything, heck I was even more shocked to see the My Fox Chicago actually report that Rahmbo was involved with Blago, I was like what, the media, report the truth, nah can’t be

If Blago thinks the chosen one is trying to toss him under the bus, in an act of self preservation, he will bring down who ever he can and not think twice about it.

President or not, the chosen one is a product of the Chicago machine and he should know how they play.

The wall of pro-Obama propaganda is cracking. Who will be the first station to realize that continuing to whitewash Obama will leave them in the dustbin of journalistic history?

Stations and papers will need to break with the AP newswire service and start doing their own research if they want to survive.

They hacked Leo's blog somehow.Here.

But wouldn't it be wonderful if the media really did wake up. They certainly have enough stories to keep them busy when it comes to our "president-elect" which BTW isn't official until tomorrow.

...a press that is showing signs of slowly waking up.

Most people in the media secretly acknowledge that it isn't fluffy propaganda that sells papers, it's scandal.

That is some great prose.

The silver lining of this opening phase of the Obama depression is the Media outlets going down the tubes because they rather cover up than cover the news.

Obama’s chief of staff refuses to answer the question

December 11, 2008

BY FRAN SPIELMAN AND ABDON M. PALLASCH Staff Reporters

President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, refused to take questions from reporters this morning about whether he was the Obama “advisor” named in the criminal complaint against Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The complaint states Blagojevich wanted a promise of a high-level appointment or some other reward for Blagojevich in exchange for Blagojevich naming Obama’s friend Valerie Jarrett to replace him in the U.S. Senate.....

Hopefully, the Gov will not resign and stay on to $crew, er serve his voters. Hopefully, this will last longer in the media, than the Fitzy/Armitage/Powell/Plame/CIA sideshow did.

Rahm, "I never had sex with, er, talked to the Illinois Governor. Hell, Obama and I don't even know him."

Chicago Team Obama

Hey Zer0, How are you hanging in there with the big boys? How's your smoking and facial tics coming along? Enjoy your ride. The fun is just beginning.

The anointed one, the appointed one, even though he can reportedly walk on water (at least the liberal media would have you think so) can't navigate the crap of Chicago politics and walk away without s*** on his shoes. No one can ... not even the messiah.
