Skip to comments.Kurtz: Media Covering Obama As If He Were Already President
Posted on 07/20/2008 5:20:09 PM PDT by Kleebo151
For months, CNN's Howard Kurtz has been one of the loudest mainstream media voices accusing his fellow press members of being disgracefully in the tank for presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama.
On Sunday, Kurtz continued his finger-pointing by accurately stating, as it pertains to the focus on the junior senator's trip to the Middle East, "the media in general, not just the networks, are -- seem to me to be covering Obama as if he were already president.

why am i not surprised?
“the media in general, not just the networks, are — seem to me to be covering Obama as if he were already president.”
Definitely not surprising, and seeing that between McCain and Obama, there is only candidate actually running .....
Gee I was kinda thinking they were covering him more like he was/is King.
He's too stupid to not do it at least once.
Indeed, why waste the time and money to have an election and to count the votes? Our vigilant media wants to save us time and trouble. Truly we don’t deserve them, they are too kind.
"(T)he objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years.
Apparently, there's been a change in the number of years a president can serve.
...any correlations and anolgies for where the US is headed is purely coincidental... NOT.
The media have researched all of the available facts and determined that the only reason they were not able to get John Kerry elected in 2004 is they just didn’t try hard enough.
Not only does the media treat him like he is president, Oblabba already thinks he is president. No election necessary this year.
this is gonna be good..........
Where've you been? The change was done when we admitted the 57th state.
Silly me! I’ll go stand with the “oh look, something shiney!” Obama crowd.
This will backfire on them. Again.
Im sure the world will notice just how one sided the coverage of Obama has become. /s
Between the alphabet soup networks sending their best talking heads on Obamas plane and Fox news giving us constant updates (via breaking news alerts) on where he is and what he is doing, McCain doesnt stand a chance. I cant remember all this fuss on any of McCains many, many, many trips to Iraq and other points Middle East. ;-(
Obama is pretending to be President. The MSM are pretending to be journalists.
