ABC, CBS, NBC Devote More Time (20 to 1) to Romney Flap Than Obama Mideast Mistakes
Newsbusters ^ | September 13, 2012 | Geoffrey Dickens

Posted on 09/13/2012 4:03:01 PM PDT by grundle

The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) Wednesday evening newscasts devoted more than 9 minutes (9 minutes, 28 seconds) to the flap over Mitt Romney's statement criticizing the administration's handling of the Libyan crisis but spent just 25 seconds on questions regarding Barack Obama's Middle-East policy, a greater than 20-to-1 disparity.

Of course. The Jour-0-list is dismantled, the politically corrupt, intellectually bankrupt mindset behind Jour-0-list runs the US “News” media

Obama says that Egypt is NOT an ally, not a peep from the media. If Romney had said it it would be breaking news on all of the networks. Its not the media anymore, just call it what it is, its the Obama Administration. They are not the media just Obama kiss asses who will do his bidding no matter what. Its scary to know that we have a tyrant in the White House who has the full backing of the press

But that would be collusion.

The dems would never evere never do such a thing.

Surprised????? Nope, sub-par for the course.

Obama has a very dismal foreign policy record. How he can criticize Romney for his "lack of foreign policy" experience is madness.

We are in dire need of a congressional investigation into the inner working and alluded collusion's of the “news media”. These are Federal Airways, we own them.

This is certainly not suprising. So why doesn’t Romney bring it up?

Somebody’s going to get fired for allowing that 25 seconds devoted to Obama’s screw-ups.

1. Deflect - Trash your opponent for speaking out of turn? (making up that rule on the fly)

2. Distract - Have your media minions trash your opponent and downplay the tragic events.

3. Demagogue - Wag your finger at your opponent and say he doesn’t know what he is talking about and to let you do your job. Especially when he is right and you have no clue.

I told ya Romney was going to get slaughtered by Obama and the MSM after Labor Day. It is ONLY going to keep getting worse and the feckless Romney is utterly ill equipped to handle it.

But, hey. This is the hand the GOP Elite dealt. After the grand slaughter of the GOP this November maybe we can finally get rid of them.

Which is more newsworthy: the occupant of our White House once again betraying our country, or a man who might really be president in four months? I’m with the alphabet media, I can’t wait to forget that the anti=American bigot from Chicago ever existed.

Do not buy the products advertised on those news shows.
They continue to lie for Obama, so do not support their advertisers.

The only people who care about it, are those who weren’t going to vote for Romney anyway.

Obama is going down.

The extreme bias of ABCNBCCNNCBS over the past 48 hours has never been so obvious and blatant. It’s absolutely sickening, if you’re dumb enough or unfortunate enough to have to pay any attention to their squealings when their messiah is exposed for the fraud he is.

Our National Embarassment, Obummer, will be laughing it up on Lettermen with 4 Americans, including HIS Ambassador, who was savagely raped, murdered by Islamic PIGS. This should be THE talking point for Republicans with some balls.

All I heard yesterday was about the media’s open-mike collusion. No reports ever played any of Romney’s answers, which were very good. It reminds me of the attacks on Clint’s empty-chair speech at the convention. The ridiculing media attacks never played Clint’s own words...too truthful, I guess

The news making so much of what Romney said will not help Obama. What Romney said is true and made Obama seem weak.
