State of the Union reaction: Media gives Obama thumbs up
Politico ^ | 2/12/2013 | MACKENZIE WEINGER

President Barack Obama delivered an “effective” State of the Union address that took an emotional turn at the end with the emphasis on gun violence, members of the media said after his speech on Tuesday.

CBS’s Bob Schieffer called the speech much “better” than Obama’s inaugural address, which he said had come across as a “partisan lecture.”

“I mean, the president’s inaugural address had sort of a partisan lecture tone about it,” Schieffer said after Obama wrapped. “This was a political speech, but it was well-written, it had a beginning, a middle and an end.”

“This was a political speech, but it was well-written, it had a beginning, a middle and an end.”

Equivalent to saying he can walk and chew gum at the same time.

Obama could have gone up on stage, praised Hitler, praised Kim Jung Un and the media would be slobbering all over him

This was a political speech, but it was well-written, it had a beginning, a middle and an end.

Sounds like my theory of dinosaurs.

All dinosaurs are thin on one end, much MUCH thicker in the middle, and thin on the other end.

That is my theory, and what is is too.

Who are the MSM? They hide behind their anonymity.

They are the controlling group of interlocking board members who will derive more power and control under a collectivist form of government.

Advertising revenues are a major source of revenues for newspapers. Large corporate interests can exert pressure over publishers on what to print by withholding advertising contracts.

They lobby and control the news media as well as Congress.

You can kinda tell by the direction our country has taken (collectivism) that it works very thoroughly.

They are the ones Biden talked about helping spread the proper message about gun control. Legitimate media I believe he called them.

The slobbering love affair will continue for, oh, let's say, for about the next 100 years.

I would think at some point someone will take the media to task and with all the loonies out and about nowadays they just might get what they deserve.

Thumbs up? The media’s collective nose is buried DEEP into the clown’s backside. Their profession is in the sewer for the perversion of liberalism.
