Skip to comments.Nothing New!! MSM has Total blackout on Obamas "Coal" comments!
Posted on 11/02/2008 8:42:47 PM PST by rfmad
Well well I just surveyed most MSM websites and there's not a hint of the explosive audio of Obama saying he will bankrupt Coal companies. Never mind it is a major industry in the most important states still undecided in the election. Obama also promised that we will have to endure higher Energy cost so we limit climate change. Hear that "Fall" and "Spring" looks like you are about to be extinct! "Climate change" is now on the hunt now that "global warming" was such a failure. I guess they need a new "undefinable" and ever observant condition to destroy capitalism.
Once again the MSM does'nt disappoint. It is still way biased to the far left. Well at least they are predictable.
McPain should be blasting this all over.
Man, if we win it will be a miracle ... .
Not shocking at all. Our hope will have to be McCain getting an ad out with Obama saying this, especially in states where coal is key industry.
Since they didn’t bother to report it 10 months ago it’s now officially “old news” /sarcasm
Unfortunately, that IS exactly how the Mediascum operate on any story they don’t want to report: first they ignore, distort, and/or minimize it. Then, if forced to explain why they are not reporting on it now they say it is “old news”.....
This is the same MSM that used half-baked Daily Kos blogs as their source information regarding Sarah Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy, and speculating whether her daughter was the real mother of Sarah’s baby. They rushed those stories into the N.Y. Times the next day.
Sarah Palin’s daughter being pregnant is more important than the energy policies of a presidential candidate. Okay, I get the picture.
Thanks for taking one for the team and informing us of the Armband Media’s tactics. Now go take a shower ;^)
No, it will take a devil handed miracle for Obama to win. He has to get ALL of what Kerry got and then take away from some of what Bush got. That simply will NOT happen. His only chance is massive and successful voter fraud plus an unusually high dem turnout compared to pubbies. Also, the 8% undecideds are going to break to Mac at least 5 to 1.
Bambi is toast.
Does anyone really need Couric or Olberman or Brockaw or any of those other strangely coiffed people to tell you how to think? Those under 30 don't have a clue who the MSM is because they get their information from network sources. Its us boomers who get so cranked about “MSM.” Must be Walter Cronkite syndrome.
Washington Times just picked it up. But then again ,they aren’t allowed on The O’s plane.
Of course the MSM is blocking this. That is why I said on a couple of different posts that folks living in these key mining states need to get this BO audio to their local news stations.
More people watch local news than national anyway.
The impact of this issue can be made local and won locally as votes.
Contact your local news and request they spread this message
AP the news agency that supplies all the small papers and radio stations with their wire news buried it deep in a roundup of daily election news and said the claim was taken “out of context.” This is like living in Russia when they had to use Interfax to get news out. The MSM is going to try to black this out or trivialize it as on CNN where it was dismissed as “old news.” A candidate saying he intends to cause skyrocketing electricity prices should be top news, not to mention bankrupting the coal industry. But the key news media are the small papers and radio stations in coal country. Somehow they have to get notified.
I saw Sean Hannity bring it up on “Hanity and Colmes”. Tim Pawlenty got into it with Colmes and Colmes fumbled in defense of “the One”.

MSM not needed. Robocalls are occurring right now.
Olberman and Couric are on the tube because they get us all whooped up. If we ignore them and we don't buy from their sponsors.... they won't survive the recession!
Anyone remember what the headlines were about that time? Just curious what the MSM was covering (besides Obama's A$$) when they were not reporting this.
I thought ABC and FOX had it, also some newspapers.
Obama said that comment was taken “out of context”... Come on man, can a brutha get a break up in here???
Obama wants to put more AMERICANS out of work.
Obama can try to run a contra ad explaining that he really didn’t say what he said.
Not surprising. However, Fox covered it tonight. It should be replaying again soon. Check out Hannity & Colmes show. I don’t always like what I hear on Fox, but I do know one thing for a dog-dang fact....they are the ONLY news outlet that does tell both sides of the story...and often, do a dang good job of it.
As noted on other threads, the Democratic PUMAs will be voting for McCain, not 0bama.
His aunt, bankrupting coal, higher electricity prices - if he wins it will only be because of the media and their refusal to do an honorable job.
Wow, you guys are behind on the news. Hannity had it on tonight and Sarah mentioned in two of her rallies today in Ohio and it only came out this morning. Thanks to many FReepers who sent it to every news outlet they could think of it is getting out there. They can’t ignore it. Also, CBS has already tried to spin it by saying that the tape has been available all these months and McCain just ignored it, which is BS. It was hidden all these months. The fact they have already tried to spin it means that it has already cost Bozo, and tomorrow it will cost him even more.
You mean toasting a PLO terrorist with another terrorist (whom you don’t know) and a certain newspaper would rather DIE than release the tape...
The media should be thought of as enemy combattants.
Yep, those MSM people are censoring and twisting the news.
a small start:
Calls slam Obama in coal country:
Do you know how this finally came out?
Makes me wonder what else they’re hiding that we know nothing about.
First circulated on Newsbusters & this youtube poster
then got picked up by Drudge. Freepers responsible for it going viral
I’ll ask the RNC why they need my money? They, and the McCain campaign really dropped the ball here. This should have been included in ads and in every GOP rally speech from way back when BHO said it. McCain and Palin should have mentioned it at the debates.
Are they trying to win or what?
bet Palin’s handlers got it off Drudge.
Even Fox kept trying to kill it today... Newt mentioned it twice and Cavuto cut him off twice. I understand Hannity had it on his show tonight.
Let’s examine how the MSM is covering this, SHALL WE?
This is from YAHOO NEWS. Only 42 News stories on this, mostly from local market papers. Yet HUNDREDS of stories on what Obama is doing today.
What bias, eh?

In all fairness: look at the thread over on the hillaryclinton forum... they slammed this out in mass to everyone and their brother; I’ve never seen a list like it. We are very lucky the PUMA are on our side, hey are formidable and they are organized.
NO ONE knew about this until today!!!!! You don’t think if this was know back in January Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have run this up the flagpole? She would have. The SFGate cut that portion of the tape when they originally released it.
Would you expect anything else from ABDNC, after all they’ve hid it for 10 months. Here comes the New Press for the Oct surprise.

Just a couple of links. You will note that the headlines castigate Palin and Republicans, not ObamaRama.
GOPTRust and McCain and others should be blasting this message all night tonight and all day tomorrow.
if it ever comes to violence here
the media will have to be dealt with accordingly
i can sure see what the winners of revolutions often purge the media....
they have proven to a clearer and more present danger than Islam
Ah, I see #37 already has much more on it. Bone up those skills!
Try to keep up. Sarah slammed Obie's head to the pavement with this today.
Man, if we win it will be a miracle ...
Sheesh, do you read here at all? Anytime in the last week, say?

Dead on point, April.
The MSM (or Pravda, as we like to refer to them around here) have so gone into the tank for Obama, that what little shred of credibility they had left is now completely gone.
McCain and Palin are going to win this election by commanding numbers, and all of the people who voted for them will be tuning out the MSM news channels for good.
Now, tell me, what sort of business sense does it make to insult well over half of the viewers in the country where you do business?
They need to learn some lessons from the print media if they want to survive.
he is in this to destroy this nation.
The alphabet networks and the major dailies don’t control the news cycle anymore, so they can put the black-out on this story all they want tomorrow - it won’t help.
Drudge already has this story up, and talk radio will be ALL over it tomorrow. Readers of FR and forums like it will be emailing the story out to their lists, which will result in the story being received by millions. The conservative news sites will have this at the “top of the fold” tomorrow, and thousands of blogs will be talking about this all day long.
This reality is what has killed Obama’s presidential bid, as well. It’s just not possible, in the electronic age, to bottle up a story.
