“Journalist” David Gregory refuses to call out Obama’s lie that he “cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″
On “Meet the Press” on December 30, 2012, President Obama said:
“I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″
In reality, CNS News reports:
According to the White House Office of Management and Budget, federal spending was not cut by $1 trillion in 2011. In fact, in fiscal 2010, federal spending was $3,456,213,000,000. In fiscal 2011, federal spending was $3,603,213,000,000. That was an increase of $147 billion.
I’m not sure which is worse – the fact that Obama would tell such a huge and easily provable lie – or the fact that a “journalist” on national television chose not to point out that Obama was way, way, way wrong.
A complete transcript of the “interview” can be read here.

so-called journalists are not informed, they are obama cheerleaders and criticism deflectors.

Barack Obama cut more spending, cut more taxes, created more jobs and killed more Osama bin Ladens than the previous ten presidents combined - in the fantasy world of Barack Obama’s addled mind.

Most employees of the MSM are mere skid marks
on Journalism's shorts.
I remember them and others when . . .
The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.
You cannot have a rational discussion with the ruling class New Normal
They have always existed in a privileged, make-believe world that was possible only because of heavy work and heavy sacrifices of others.

Big woop. Bush cut spending by $450,750,000,000,000 by not invading Jupiter.

What did anyone expect? Gregory was a sycophant before but now Obama is keeping him out of jail.
Also the chocolate ration was increased to twenty grams.

If he does call Zero on it, Zero will suddenly push to have him prosecuted for the magazine...

Davids not a reporter.
Right. Just like his comrades in the MSM, he is just a propagandist.
I am dumbfounded when sentient humans still expect otherwise.

The “press” has covered for dems at least since FDR. They wouldn’t report that he was in a wheelchair. They wouldn’t report on JFK’s womanizing. They wouldn’t report on LBJ’s bastard son. And they wouldn’t have reported on Monica if it hadn’t been for a blue dress and the internet. Now they’re covering for obama. Surprised?

I hope Gregory and the libs at NBC are among the first to lose their jobs when Obama’s socialist redistribution policies kick in.
Gregory helped the regime spread its lies and propaganda like a good little commie stooge. The US media is just as corrupt and pathetic as the the media in Cuba or Iran. If G.W Bush farted too loud the media was screaming about it but Obama could get caught arming criminal drug cartels and al quada terrorist and the media stays silent. Our fellow Americans must be complete idiots if they can't see through this charade.

So if you’re referencing CNS and MSNBC what the hell does your blog have to do with anything?
I criticize Gregory, which those sources do not do.
