Sarah Palin: The MSM’s Unquechable Curiosity Reserved for O’Donnell, Not Obama
Death by a Thousand Papercuts ^ | September 25, 2010 | Mondo Frazier

Posted on 09/25/2010 11:35:14 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Observation of the Day

Sarah Palin wonders: Gee, where was the same curiosity the MSM is displaying about Christine O’Donnell during 2008? Barack Obama has still not released records all other presidents have made public and the MSM has shown a decided indifference in asking any questions. Which would be curious–except that in 2010, everyone knows that’s how the MSM rolls.

“Funny . . . That we are learning more about Christine O’Donnell and her college years, her teenage years, her financial dealings than anybody ever even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president.” –Sarah Palin

The same Mainstream Media that exhibited a decided indifference about Barack Obama’s medical, university, college and other records has been busy digging into Christine O’Donnell’s years-old views on masturbation.

Palin: Why No Probe of Barack ‘Hussein’ Obama?

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin alleges that the media has a blatant double standard, shining intense scrutiny on GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell while turning a blind eye to then-candidate Barack Obama’s personal history in the 2008 campaign.

During an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday night, Palin said: “Funny . . . That we are learning more about Christine O’Donnell and her college years, her teenage years, her financial dealings than anybody ever even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president.”

There were no questions asked during the disgraceful Mainstream Media coverage of the 2008 election because the Media was too busy digging through dumpsters in Wasilla, Alaska, for dirt on the Republican VP nominee.

Oh, and attacking any sources which did ask inconvenient questions about the MSM’s Messiah.

Palin alludes to a “double standard.” It’s not. It’s blatant content management and it no longer is very effective because it’s been so transparent for so long, Americans give the same respect to the New York Times‘ political opinions as they did the Weekly World News.

Thank heavens the Mainstream Media is dying.

May it be slow, protracted and painful.

Just like the damage they’ve inflicted on objective journalism during the last 50 years.

Yeah, it’s pretty ridiculous.

There’s no point in using words like bias or liberal.

Most TV stations are Democrat stations. The media tries to get Democrats elected. The media is for Democrats.

Around 20% of the people are liberal. Another 40% aren’t liberal but watch Democrat TV stations for their news and many end up voting for the Democrat. Another 40% are conservative.

Fox News is the Republican TV station. The rest are Democrat.

“They just want to be on the side that’s winning.”

That would be sensible in some respects, but I don’t think that’s what they want. They want Marxism/socialism to win at all costs, and any time it appears to be losing they will unfailingly attack anyone appearing to be remotely conservative...and if a conservative actually wins, the MSM will continue to attack said conservative until the MSM croaks (which is hopefully sooner vs. later).

There you go Sarah!

If only the education records come out to show his failure in schools, negative GPAs and IQ if any, applied as foreign student, dropped out or graduated if ever and the affirmative action graduation toilet papers or the lack thereof!

Assuming that 0h0m0 is a NBC, and I use the term loosely, who are his real parents? Malcolm X? Frank Marshall Davis? Dunham/a black woman, one from the Davis cellar of vintage sluts?

I tell ya, knowing 0b0z0's elephant dung on the shoulder, the homo child who is elevated to a brilliant messiah that walks on water or oil slicks, the education records would be the end of him. His weak and faithless personality may cause him to contemplate very desperate acts.

What a ghost of a POS_OTUS!

Your Ghoster-in-Chief.

I disagree. It’s that that Steele, Rove, Krauthammer etc don’t know the MSM is the propaganda arm of leftists. They know that. Anyone with an IQ above 80 knows that.

It’s that they want to be liked by the leftists, they’re lukewarm moderate Establishment Republicans. They are Part of the Problem. A major part of the problem.

In a war, you know your enemies are enemies. But when allies or brothers in arms turn out to have loyalty to the enemy, they are worse than the out and out enemies. That’s exactly what Establishment Republicans are. They are not stalwart conservatives, they are power hungry elitists.

I say throw them all out.

I’m not surprised at the lack of vetting by the MSM but what bothers me more are the so called conservative pundits. Beck, Limbaugh, Levin and others have run, with fear in their eyes, from even asking probing questions.

Beck claims, “question with boldness” yet cringes in terror when the question of Obummer’s faith or place of birth is broached.

The first time I saw that fear was during the town hall meeting when McShame grabbed the mic from the hands of the older lady who claimed Obummer was an Arab. I told my wife at that point there was something drastically wrong.

Any public discussion of Obummers past records are strictly verboten. There is a deep underlying cancer in our Federal Government that they are deathly afraid of.

...In 1978, Krauthammer quit medical practice to direct planning in psychiatric research for the Jimmy Carter administration, and began contributing to The New Republic magazine. During the presidential campaign of 1980, Krauthammer served as a speech writer to Vice President Walter Mondale.

In January 1981, Krauthammer began his journalistic career, joining The New Republic as a writer and editor...

From what I saw and heard in the last few years, it's not your imagination.

The Republican women carry the flag. The old Republican guard had been emasculated a long time ago.

Sarah is absolutely on the mark. She knows that the Media has to be confronted immediately on every lie and bias they perpetuate. The Media is the communists' stealth nuclear weapons.

Without confronting the media in every interview, demanding of the interviewer "where were you or your organization when.......happened? Why me and not Mr./Ms. when he/she said/did the very same thing?

Republicans shouldn't talk to the media without having their own raw taping of the event to confront the media on their "creative editing."

We wouldn't be dealing with 0h0m0 as POTUS today if the Media was just 25% neutral!

Oops! Mistake, fixed below:

And now it turns out thanks to 2ndDivisionVet that Krauthammer at least is just a regular leftists! Why is he even considered conservative at all? What little I’ve read from him is just slush crap anyway.

I guess I can understand why Beck, Limbaugh etc don't want to discuss the place of birth issue, but why on earth aren't they demanding college records?? That is not “crazy” or “wacky”. We all remember when the MSM demanded Bush's and then Kerry begrudgingly produced his and he was a worse student than Bush!

“That would be sensible in some respects, but I don’t think that’s what they want. They want Marxism/socialism to win at all costs, and any time it appears to be losing they will unfailingly attack anyone appearing to be remotely conservative”

Your assuming that these people have such powers. In social psychology we use a term called better-than-average effect to explain such rhetoric. Individuals such as Rove and Krauthammer are intelligent people. But when discredited and shown to be wrong, They rebel and use excuses as their intelligence and insight is questioned. Everyone suffers from this phenomenon, as everyone thinks they are better, smarter, more ethical, better looking, healthier and so on then the average person. It’s not their fault, It’s human nature. Think of it as a baseball team who loses and questions the umpire for the result, and the baseball team who wins and congratulates themselves for being superior than the other team. Same thing.

Krauthammer and Rove are no more insightful than you and I. They just think they are. <-———Self-Serving Bias

Probably not, any more that Coons thought he'd be running for Senate when he shot his mouth off about marxism. But she did appear on the show making those comments, and people like Maher are using them. Her financial blunders are a matter of record, and her opponents are using them. Coons and his campaign will take advantage of anything they can, just as O'Donnell's campaign would if the situation was reversed.

You could put quotes around his whole name. "Barack" is the name of Mohammad's magical flying horse. "Hussein" is the name of Mohammad's grandson. "Obama" is Swahili for Osama which was Mohammad's favorite general. He changed his name from Barry Soetoro for some reason. Any guesses why?

No, it's not your imagination, and yet another example of why Sarah Palin will run for POTUS and be the next POTUS. She's already pretty much said if nobody comes forward to carry the message and banner for the GOP in 2012 that she'll feel it is her duty to run.

Well, guess what, Sarah. Nobody else is going to do the "dirty" work. Time to get your hands dirty and clean things up once again.

Money was tight.

That's an excuse for not paying your bills? So you think all those morons who ran up six figure tuition bills getting their Fine Arts degrees, or those people who stop paying their mortgages because they bought a house they couldn't really afford should just be forgiven because money is tight? Geez, sounds like you would be much more comfortable over on DU than I would.

Ummm O’Donnell answered the questions do you know what that answer was?

I know that she tried answering some of them. She proved that the claim her house was foreclosed and repossessed was false. But the fact that she defaulted on her mortgage and that Chase had to go to court and get a judgment against her, or that a sheriffs sale was scheduled is a matter of public record.

Likewise she claims it took her 10 years to pay off her tuition. But Farleigh Dickenson had to take her to court and in fact it took her 10 years to pay off a the $4800 legal judgment against her. So $480 per year was all she could afford?

Or more like it that you’re getting your talking points from Commie Coons and Harry Reid’s pet rat.

No need for that. It's part of the public record. Like I said, nobody needs to work to dig for dirt on O'Donnell. She's left enough of it lying around for anyone to see.
