Will MSM Continue Ignoring Shocking Obama 'Redistribution of Wealth' Audio?
Newsbusters ^ | October 27, 2008 | P. J. Gladnick

Posted on 10/27/2008 6:56:38 AM PDT by St. Louis Conservative

Once again we have another story that has been picked up in a big way by the Blogosphere but is currently being ignored by the mainstream media. And this time the story is huge. If you've seen the Drudge Report today you will know exactly which story this is; the audio of a 2001 interview on Chicago public radio station WBEZ FM in which Barack Obama explicitly calls for the "redistribution of wealth." You won't find any information about this blockbuster story in the MSM just yet but as been very typical lately, you can be informed on this topic on the Blogosphere including this report from Steve Schippert of Wizbang who posted it at 1:20 this morning while the members of the MSM were complacently sleeping, comfortable in the knowledge that Obama probably had the election in the bag:

The audio of a Barack Obama radio interview below is stunning. Unfortunately, it will probably stun few. For once the word "Constitution" is mentioned, electoral eyes roll into the backs of voters' heads as memories of a boring high school history class in a hot, dusty classroom emerge in the place of contemplation of the founding principles of this nation.

Speaking of the Warren Court its interpretation of the Constitution during the Civil Rights movement, Obama said, "It wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. At least as it's been interpreted and more important interpreted in the same way that, generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties; says what the states can't do to you, what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the state government or federal government must do on your behalf."

The Radio Talkers will be all over it today.

Local radio has picked it up in KC.

YES. It fits THEIR socialist/communist agenda.

BTW, a communist is simply a socialist who knows how to use firearms. I suspect Obama will graduate shortly AFTER the coronation.

Yes they will.

obama came out last week and said he won’t apologize for the “spread the wealth” comment to Joe the plumber. He’s not walking away from it because the electorate wants to hear it.

Sad.

Not only will they continue to ignore it but even the conservative press is burying the lead.

The real issue isn’t that he wants to redistribute wealth. That happens all the time under a taxation scheme.

The real issue is that he wants to free the federal government and counts from the “constraints” put on it by the Constitution.

That, my friend, is real scary Benito Mussolini level stuff.

The Welfare Media: sitting on their asses letting private citizens do their jobs, while they suck off the corporate teat.

Why should they have f/t jobs with health insurance and benefits, when they aren’t doing anything?

It is time to redistribute their wealth!

As soon as McCain and Palin use ‘quotes’ from this audio, the mainstream media will no longer be able to ignore it. This is no good for ‘the one’.

Why wouldn't they continue ignoring it? I just watched McCain speak live on Fox - at some jobs summit - and HE didn't mention it either.

The constitution is a charter of negative liberties; says what the states can't do to you, what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the state government or federal government must do on your behalf.

I guess our brilliant constitutional lawyer never heard of the 10th Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Yes. Until they are forced.

Then they will be dismissive, and it will be swept under the carpet as old news.

WOW! This is the first I've heard of this audio, and it's absolutely devastating --but believable. This is typical of Harvard Law. The guy is at least a quasi-Marxist, if not an outright Marxist. Period. End of story.

I can see that the drive-by media is all over this, as usual. But to hell with them. We have to spread the word ourselves.

No. These are professional journalists who have standards and ethics. They can't hurry a major story like this. They need to check the context and the validity of the recording, along with the accuracy of the transcript. They have a responsibility to cover this open admission of Obama's communism and his lack of respect for the Constitution in a fair and responsible manner. Just give them until a week from Wednesday, and they'll be ready to do it right.

It's not as simple as a story on why Piper is a bad sister for holding Trig when she might drop the baby, or a story on why Sarah should have aborted Trig, or on whether Sarah is even Trig's mother, or Bristol's social life. Those are "obviously" fair game and require no research.

They will continue to ignore it. The McCain campaign knows that people start paying attention this week and there are a lot of undecideds out there. This should scare the electorate into voting for McCain.

I looked at CNN, MSNBC, ABCNEWS websites. I found out the republican party was now no longer interested in a McCain win...just trying to avoid a landslide that ‘would take several election cycles to recover from’

Oh yeah, I” also found out that Palin had a ‘Diva Problem’ and had gone ‘Rogue’.

MSNBC has made their much anticipated announcement that Obama has gone over the 270 mark....which doesn’t make sense if Zogby and Rasmussen are tightening in the national race, and the state races are getting tighter.

Fox didn’t disappoint - they have it as a headline.

Mike Gallagher made it the focus of his last half hour, then brought on Joe Wurzelbacher to emphasize the points.

I want Obama and his Obamatron legions crippled. Crippled by the truth on election day.

And I’m hoping this will open people’s eyes. We already know the truth. Pray that our fellow Americans do in time.

Obama’s people will be forced to go on defense. This all coming before his huge “address to the nation”.

Will believe it when I hear or see it.

Newspaper editors and TV producers are well practiced at ignoring wire service stories or national media stories which harm Obama.

They are also well-practiced at negating an Obama 'sin' by making it appear that McCain (or another Republican) advocates the same thing, or some such distortion.

Never underestimate the ability of liberal (subconscious or otherwise) networks to shill for Obama and the Democrats.

I've worked in the business and see it occur over and over.
