In "Something New Here," I laid out Barack Obamas ties to the far-left New Party. Blogger Trevor Loudon, of New Zeal, did the pioneering work on this issue. Today, Loudon has posted good quality scans of New Party documents and pictures confirming Obamas membership. Weve seen most of this information before (although only recently), but never so clearly.
With all its lengthy background pieces, has the New York Times ever noted that Barack Obama was endorsed by, and was a member of, the New Party? What about the Washington Post? Has any major television network, any national news magazine, or any major daily newspaper ever mentioned that Barack Obama was endorsed by, or was a member of, the New Party? If any such outlet has ever mentioned that fact, have they ever gone on to explain in any depth exactly what the New Party was? For example, have they laid out the extremely close ties between the New Party in Chicago and ACORN? Especially with issue of Obamas ties to ACORN so much in the news, isnt this a major story right now?
Can any blogger out there answer these questions? I repeat: Has any major television network, any national news magazine, or any major daily newspaper ever mentioned Barack Obamas membership in, or endorsement by, the New Party, and then gone on to explore and explain what the New Party was, including its ties to ACORN? Isnt the membership of a major party nominee and currently favored candidate to become president of the United States in a third party a major news story? Is it not the height of press irresponsibility to ignore this fact?
Now some folks might be disturbed by Obamas New Party membership and/or endorsement, and some may not. But isnt this something the American people are entitled to know and decide on for themselves?
The press has no time for such trivialities. They're busy investigating Joe the Plumber's children, parking tickets, and dry cleaning bills. Important stuff.
AH, no, for the Mediascum the important stories are Governor Palin's clothes and Joe the Plumber's financial issues.
The idea that Mediascum exist to provide objective, factual, timely articles and broadcasts on the important issues and candidates of the day is just one of those silly delusional beliefs we have to toss aside on the road to real maturity.
Oh you mean the far left communist media, that has now influenced FoxNews...it’s amazing what you find out during an election when emotions run high...even Fox isn’t so fair and balanced,,,just scooping up viewers who left the drive by’s...with a few conservative blips..
Very few fair and balanced left at FoxNews now too.
Not that it'll make a dent in the treason of the Presstitutes . . .
The New Party had candidates sign a contract. I would like to see the contract that Obama signed.
I can’t believe it either... I am watching FOX and I am wondering if I have the wrong channel.
The contract is buried with his thesis...
