The Scandal No One is Talking About
Fox News ^ | November 11, 2011 | Dan Gainor

Posted on 11/11/2011 10:58:07 PM PST by ThirstyMan

If you've been following the news this week, you'd get the impression that America is a scandal-plagued nation. Scandals to the right of us, scandals to the left of us.

Take your pick. There’s the media assault on GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, the deadly "Fast and Furious" federal gun-running case, the Solyndra solar loan fiasco, the collapse of MF Global, led by former Democratic N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine and, of course, the deeply disturbing allegations of child sexual abuse at Penn State.

But the real scandal isn’t any one of those. It’s how journalists pick and choose which controversies to play up and which to play down. They are so inconsistent, you’d think they studied ethics at Penn State under Joe Paterno.

...The different between “journalist” and Democratic Party operative is often non-existent.

Media is too busy covering stories like this up with witch hunts on Cain and the Penn State story. I would venture the Penn State story is something they have been clued into for some time.... nice to have something to pull out of the hat to amuse the masses while the criminals are destroying this country.

This is the scandal of how some stories are picked over others.

“Check out the Kenyan’s background.”

That is the last thing the MARXIST media is going to check, and you probably know that.
Barky Hussein Obumbo is their messiah.
They will do nothing that might slow or damage the march to
America becoming a Marxist/Leninist/socialist republic.

As you probably know, Marxist control most all education and media in the new USSA.

I’ll take it one step further...

I’d lay ODDS that they already know.

And choose not to do what a REAL reporter would do. They’re a bunch of spineless wimps.

I tend to agree.
There is no doubt at all that there is a serious flaw
in the Obumbo birth story, or his citizenship.
I feel quite certain that he does not qualify to be POTUS.

and the media will not touch the story of all the accusers calling the fraud in the white house a homosexual. Larry Sinclair, Donald Young, just to name a couple.

The media controls what Americans think. The PSU "scandal" is just one of many things they try to clog into our brains to keep us occupied.

FAST AND FURIOUS is a scandal they refuse to cover. The Kenyan could be convicted and imprisioned for approving that act of war against Mexico. What does the press do? The answer is as little as possible, they do not want to face the attacks from the Chicago style gangsters in Washington.

The real question is WHY does the press think they can get away with these "ommissions."

The answer is because they think we are idiots and they will treat us like idiots until we prove otherwise. In effect, the Press are traitors who are co-conspirators who are destroying the country. Similarily, some of the politicians are traitors, most are useful idiots..

This will not stop until the hangings start for TREASON.

Fast and Furious would hurt obama and their agenda to disarm law abiding citizens. That is two reasons that they will not cover it. Reason three is that it happened under a Democrat Administration.

They waited on PSU until it could not be ignored any longer.

Why do some posters call Obama “the Kenyan”?

The really interesting possibility is that 0 is not really the son of that Kenyan guy. He doesn’t look the slightest like the Kenyan “father.”

It is a strong possibility that the Kenyan was merely a convenient stand-in for a young mother who got knocked up by someone or other. She was probably not exactly sure who the daddy was. Was it Davis, the communist poet who was a friend of the family?

Forget about the birth certificate. I want to see a DNA test, just for historical reasons.

Young 0 was not only abandoned by his supposed father, but also by his actual mother. Sad for him, and sad for us.

The best we can do as a country, is also to abandon this fellow. Let him, for the first time in his life, get a real job.

They aren't wimps. They are socialists and are intent on destroying the Republic.

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky Whose Student was Barack Obama

America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within. - Joseph Stalin

Isn’t that an example of the press’ cover-up of the news? When you Google “Fast and Furious” hardly anything shows up from the “major” networks
