Obama advisers, Democrat senators, and terminally stupid ideologues that for days have blamed Standard and Poor's downgrade of America's debt on the Tea Party are sadly mistaken.
Next to the President of the United States and his Party, those really responsible are members of the media.
Since the junior senator from Illinois first threw his hat into the presidential ring in February 2007, America's press have refused to hold his feet to the fire concerning any important issue facing the nation.
This debt ceiling debate and resulting downgrade were just the most recent examples.
When Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) offered his 2012 budget proposal in April, news outlet after news outlet lined up to demagogue him mimicking talking points from the White House and the Democrat leadership.

Then with Cut, Cap & Balance:
Media opposition to CCB continued even after it passed the House 234-190 which certainly made it easier for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to prevent the bill from ever getting voted on in the Senate, a strategy the press applauded.
Noel Sheppard nails the MSM for its blind loyalty to Obamah!
the media sure fanned the flames, but the blame lies in congress. in fact in all the congresses since the Johnson administration who felt that it was OK for the government to keep borrowing after borrowing until we have borrowed our way into this mess.
and it’s the fault of those who elect, and support those people who think that the ability to borrow more and more is sound financial policy.
i’m looking at the man behind the curtain, not where the talking heads are pointing...
Great article. Every American needs to read it.
If you only get your news from the networks, you'd think the T.E.A. Party activists are indeed real terrorist & racist.
But the Republicans are portrayed as obstructionist, keeping Obamah from realizing his greatness.
The MSM drives me nuts!
Everyone here at FR knew from the giddy up that O was NOT the McCoy or even a reasonable facsimile!
Panicky, bullied, ethically wobbly journalists and other MSM personnel who are the supposed watchdogs of our political process were (remain) afraid of their own shadow when assessing Os fitness for the Presidency!! Its the same whenever these people assess the credentials of ANY minority whose suitability OUGHT to be conscientiously evaluated, like everyone ELSE!!!
This is emotional blackmail and American voters deserve a more responsible and honorable watchdog. As it is, there is NOTHING to keep candidates honest.
