Our Shameless MSM…Carrying Obama’s Water
Flopping Aces ^ | 05-12-12 | Curt

Unbiased my ass:

Washington Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton touted the Post’s Romney-haircut “scoop” as a “deeply reported story” that “holds up to scrutiny.” But the family of the haircut victims told ABC it was “factually inaccurate” and it shouldn’t be used as a political football. Pexton said nonsense: the Post has received “no specific complaint of inaccuracy.”

Perhaps more shocking is that the Post shamelessly admits they timed this story precisely to echo on the day after President Obama’s big pro-gay announcement. They actually waited a day longer than planned to let Obama have the front page to himself when he was being “historic.” Pexton’s only nod to the right: he panned the sneaky update that’s still not a “correction”:

Stu White was portrayed in the original story as being “disturbed” by the alleged haircut incident for decades, and then it was amended to a couple of weeks. That’s embarrassing, but not to the shameless Post

Our media is beyond shameless. They have all but announced their intention. Get Obama elected by targeting Romney for anything.


Romney address at Liberty Univ. sparks controversy

Mitt Romney is to deliver the commencement address Saturday at Virginia's Liberty University, the largest evangelical college in the country.

His visit has stirred debate in the conservative Christian community, because some believe his Mormon faith is a cult.

Bryan Preston notes:

Protestants are the nation’s largest religious group, and evangelicals are the largest group within that group. Since when is it controversial for a presidential candidate to speak to such a large and mainstream group?

But bring up the fact that Obama borrowed language from prior Communist dictators as his campaign slogan and the MSM goes silent.

News vs. Propaganda: What's the difference?


The news and propaganda are often difficult to distinguish from one another, but the main difference is that the news is created with an attempt to minimize bias, while propaganda is intentionally biased.

News is created to provide accurate information.

Propaganda is created to manipulate people's actions or opinions.

News tends to focus on past events, while propaganda is designed to affect people's ideas about the present and to influence them in the future.

No comments from you in quite a while. Just excerpting blog posts from one site.

That’s curious.
Had you read what Jim had to say about it?

Here, I’ll help you out:

“Our Bloggers Forum ( )
is open to all liberty-loving bloggers to post their great work to FR. But
our readers are mostly interested in reading relevant posts in their entirety
on FR without having to click to an unknown outside website where who knows
what kind of cookies or tracking devices may await them. And they
appreciate it very much when the blog authors join in on the

Whatchoo got to say about that, Starman? I await your response.

I recently spent time in a waiting room which had 1 -- exactly one -- magazine. It was an issue of Time magazine. I haven't glanced at a copy in years. Two things struck me:

1) Incredibly thin magazine. There was just not much to it.
2) Every page seemed to gush with an obscene amount of Obama worship. Not even an attempt at equal coverage for any other political viewpoint. He is just so awesome, and we are just so lucky to have him!! What else can you say??

Why would you have any expectation of Time being a news magazine?
