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.

Republicans need to get with the program even if they have to pay for air time.
are these ? marks or chicks?
Actually, when the President went on his last European tour, I don’t think they sent all the anchors with him.
So they are actually treating Obama BETTER than they treat the President.
And all this fawning over a guy who has accomplished.... what??? Getting elected to the Senate? What has he done to deserve such worship?
I’m amazed how unprofessional the messiah looks when seated with the others on the world stage... he looks like the skinny crack dealer one comes upon selling crack on the street corners of the local ghetto!
I’m having to reach for the jug of mylanta watching this obamination and realizing this punk may indeed be the next CiC!
he may be approaching his shelf life.
They treat BHO like a President today because after Nov 4 they may not be able to.
Stop it! Just stop it and grow up. Sheesh!
How the hell can McCain -- or anyone else -- get a message out when the media simply is not covering him. When even a liberal reporter like Howard Kurtz gets it, it's long past time for conservatives to stop doing Obama's dirty work for him.
From the posted article, Howard Kurtz concludes:
When you have one candidate whose trip is covered by the three anchors, and the other candidate, whose foreign travels are barely covered; when you have one candidate who gets twice as much airtime on the network evening newscasts since early June, since the Democratic contest was over...when you have one candidate, Barack Obama, on the cover of "Rolling Stone" with his wife on "US Weekly," with his family on "Access Hollywood;" and when you have one candidate, Barack Obama, getting more than twice as many covers, "TIME" and "Newsweek," then John McCain -- and just look at some. We pulled out some "Newsweek" covers here.
Look. Obama. Obama. Obama.
At that point, there is clearly an imbalance. The sheer volume becomes an imbalance. And I think that we have inadvertently or otherwise put our thumb on the scale and there could be a big backlash against news organizations if this trend continues.
McCain IS campaigning. He's trying hard, with fewer resources, a smaller staff, and a mainstream media so in the tank for his opponent that they are already treating Obama as if he is the current president.
It's time for us to get off our collective whiny asses and start doing whatever we can to ensure that Obama never becomes president. We need to help McCain get his message out.
“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 didnt try hard enough.”
This is precisely why the MSM has pulled out all the stops and taken an “appearances be damned” approach. There is no longer any pretense about objectivity or neutrality. Make no mistake, the MSM is in this one to win.
Terrorists to Guard Obama in palestine!! He is already THEIR selected president. They elect terrorists for themselves and want one for America. Might even get one unless someone checks out the falsified COLB Obama presents.
AntiMullah has compiled four top links to prove Obama’s false COLB which can be used if you wish to send a single link instead of four to your congressman, HOmeland or FBI and ask them to check him out.
Though it may end up doing Hitlery a favor, if Obama gets disqualified, the irate Obamaists may react by voting McCain into the Oval Office.
The only question is which ABDNCBS Distorter will get the biggest Obasm??
Pray for W and Our Troops
Stupefying, but makes sense!
Well, I wouldn't have called Frum "boy," but I think the question fair.
Nov. 4th I believe ... but I am still in the belief that Osama will have a double digit win (10 or 11 points). I think people will just look at McCain and see an old man riddled with cancer (as per the MSM) and go with the new and shinny.
