Bill Ayers Says One Thing, The Obama Campaign Says Another, and The Usual MSM Suspects Donít Care
big journalism ^ | Nov 29th 2011 | John Nolte

Today’s opening snark courtesy of Journolister Dave Weigel from his Slate perch:

Big Government breaks the news that Bill Ayers hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama; well, this was broken by Ben Smith in 2007, but still.

I call it a “snark” because the word “lie” feels a little harsh during this holiday season. However, it’s just a fact that Big Government didn’t position the piece as “breaking news” and as far as I can tell it wasn’t even a featured story. But you have to admire a guy like Weigel who poses as an objective journalist and yet sees no news value whatsoever in new video of a notorious domestic terrorist speaking openly about his relationship with a sitting President of the United States.

But is it really that Weigel saw no news value in it or that he knows that Obama’s re-election could be in even more trouble were he to receive the kind of vetting Journolisters like Weigel did everything in their power to prevent in 2008?

Naturally, Weigel isn’t alone. Here’s Politico’s Ben Smith joining in

...

In 2008 the Barack Obama for President campaign went into full denial mode accusing the McCain/Palin campaign of lying about a fundraiser held in domestic terrorist Bill Ayers’s home for Barack Obama’s Illinois State Senate campaign.

Watch this clip from October 15, 2008 where spokesman Robert Gibbs flat-out denies the fundraiser story to an inquiring Chris Matthews. Then watch Bill Ayers, in his own words, admit to the event himself.

Either Mr. Gibbs lied to Mr. Matthews, or Mr. Obama lied to Mr. Gibbs.

Good Lord. Another 1 year or so of the now standard bitchfest about the MSM. So this is news? Sheesh . Whining and stating the obvious will not get it done.

Bwahahahahhaaa! That was funny.

I’ve had a crappy day...and that made me laugh.

Why do I see the Donald thinking he can take over Cain’s spot?

This primary is a wild ride...and, lately, I don’t think that is a bad idea. Waking the dopes up.

I’ve thought that old Billy wrote Dreams, but who do you think wrote Audacity? That movie guy?

I don’t know, but do recall the discussions about Ayers writing “Dreams”.

Yes, you’re right. I knew when I was writing that that something didn’t see quite ‘right’, lol. Sinclair should have alerted me!
