Skip to comments.Media Blames Romney for Their Refusal to Scrutinize Obama’s Decisions

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Talk about the conservative critiqueand I think its a fair critique, the conservative critique: that all you guys in the media were talking about Mitt Romney, you should have talked about the warnings with the embassy, etc., etc. And yes perhaps we should have. But you know who didnt allow us to do that?
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Mitt Romney.
SCARBOROUGH: Mitt Romney. If Mitt Romney had kept his mouth shut, if he had not acted like a rank amateur, if he had not embarrassed himselfand by the way internally the campaign understands they screwed up, hes moved on, they know that. So no conservative can say oh, the mainstream media, blah, blah. They know how badly they screwed up, and they were having the fight internally before he even went out and did it. But Romney got in the way of the media looking at the president, going, wha-, wha-, what happened here? How did this happen? Now, those questions are going to be asked in the coming weeks. But they werent asked in the first 24 hours because Romney was holding this horrific, irresponsible, press conference.
If only Mitt Romney were to drop out of the election, there is no doubt in my mind that the media would finally do its job of asking why Obamas disastrous undeclared war and bad security decisions empowered Islamists to run wild across the Middle East and murder Americans. That is if they dont get distracted by some Republicans somewhere criticizing Obama, which will force them to immediately debut coverage demanding that the Republican be immediately arrested and sent to a Hope Gulag (TM) for rehabilitation.
Mostly this is just embarrassing. We are witnessing the last gasps of anything resembling journalism and its replacement by bellowing hacks who can always be counted on to scream the Party Line at viewers after a long lunch.
The media cant do its job in Libya for three very simple reasons.
1. It no longer has any idea how to do its job
2. It cant question Obama
3. It cant risk a scenario where their questions help Romney become president
Scarborough and Brzezinski have as much as admitted that they will not do their jobs because it might benefit Romney. Would they do their jobs if we went to a One Party State? Nope.
What is astounding is the sheer childishness of what passes for media dialogue now. No one takes responsibility for anything now. Instead Scarborough bellows that he cant do his job of questioning Obama because Romney somehow got in the way.
Mental Illness: Liberalism
Typical LSM AnnitedIdiot backing media pattern: excuses, deflection, excuses, lies, excuses, deflection, excuses....Bet it was Romney and Bush’s fault this same LSM AnnitedIdiot backing media did NOT vet the Annointed One in 2008...... =.=
Is Joe for REAL? No wonder we call them LIBTARDS>
yes ..media is sick , childish and communist..supporting supreme leader.
Joe Scarborough is the David Brooks of MSNBC.
I have no doubts our Embassy in Libya was intentionally left defenseless so that it would be attacked on 9/11. The #1 topic in America would be a terrorist attack or an anti-Islam movie but NOT THE ECONOMY. Notice how the mainstream media is collectively HIDING the truth regarding the state of security at this Embassy.
If only Britanny Spears had not discovered her ...
Well, it's getting to the point that there is little to no difference between Joe and Mika these days. I'm starting to believe he's saying all this stupid crap just to get in Mika's pants.
Obviously, those in the media are TOO STUPID to do more than one story at a time.
John...hate to ask this to you twice in a week but how in the world do you write political satire when things like this really happen?
He may be surprised by what he finds there...
Isn’t this like blaming a rape victim - for the rape - because she was a woman?
Liberalism does breed stupidity.
He actually says if only Romney would quit the election, he’s sure then the media would do it’s job.
These people are garbage.
That's the beginning of Daniel Greenfield's article, responding to the Joe S. quote. I should have block the quote better. Sorry.
See post #16.
Oh well, they are still A holes.
They want Romney to stfu and leave Obama alone.
Rush did a parody 0bama news conference the other day in which 0bama said it wasn’t Michelle’s fault that a statue broke a window when she threw it.
It was the window’s fault. If it hadn’t been where it was, the bust of Churchill would have just hit the wall and not broken the window.
Remember back in ‘04 when the media refused to cover and criticize Bush’s Iraq War policy and it effects on the Middle East, because they were too busy attacking John Kerry for his denunciations of it?
MSM are traitors, every damn one of them.
Journalism must be a zero-sum game .... only so many questions to ask, and Romney got in the way.
The MSM really went nuts after Al Gore challenged the results of the 2000 election in the courts. The MSM hasn't been the same ever since.
Well, of course they aren’t going to take responsibility for their failures. Their President doesn’t do so - why should they?
Shut your pie hole Joe, your idiocy is showing.
If you can’t blame Bush, I guess you have to blame Romney.</msm>
Obama would have been able to fix the economy, protect our foreign citizens, and reduce the deficit if Romney wouldn’t have run against him.
