Is Obama Losing His Media Allies Over The Sequester?

In a word,

NO!

RE :”At one of his countless anti-sequester events, Obama warned that the budget cuts will “gut critical investments,” “weaken America's economic recovery” and “weaken our military readiness.” He said tens of thousands of parents will scramble to find child care, and hundreds of thousands will “lose access to primary care and preventive care.” [snip]
Even the media appear — incredibly — to be growing skeptical of the administration's horrifying predictions. “

Sequester-geddon ping!

Obama was convinced by the election and the tax cut deal that he cannot lose any of these fights, and now that he is re-elected the MSM may be getting bored with propping him-up as the black liberal flawless messiah. Maybe he will be surprised this time.

The lsm media is just a little tiffed that their access to obama has been limited lately. this was just a little reminder that they are in bed together and he shouldn’t stray too far. They made him what he is today and can break him just as easily. They’ll be behind him again soon.

So far, Woodward is the only one I’ve heard challenging anything.

Wait until Barry gives the order to shut down meat inspection, the TSA, national parks and interstate highways. They’ll be back on board faster than you can say “Progressive Orgasm”.

Unfortunately, the corrupt MSM is too in love with and too heavily invested in Obama to suddenly start reporting the truth.

As long as there are Obama bedfellows like Ezra Klein, Andrea Mitchell, Robin Roberts, Joe Scarborough, Soledad o’Brian, the NYTimes, NBC, etc., then Obama will be able to do whatever he wants without political consequence.

Equally unfortunate is the fact that Republicans have absolutely NO leadership whatsoever.

The left wing media will never stop being the Ministry of Propaganda for ghetto thug Barry Hussein Soetoro. They may have a brief spat, but soon they will go back to licking his boots.

As long as Obama performs his main job of giving people government money to watch TV the media will always love him.

I don't think he's "lost his media allies," but I do believe he's put them between a rock and a hard place because they have to stretch their own credibility with the low-information voters to report this the way the White Hut wants them to. That's saying a lot about the size and quality of the lying going on right now.

40,000 teachers? No way. Only the ghetto trash believes that.

I’m wondering how many were true allies and how many were allies because of their cowardice. Now that Woodward is speaking out. I’m hoping all the threats come out of the woodwork.

All King Barry needs to do is to invite them all to his next gala party in at the Sepia House.

And if that doesn’t work, he can have them beheaded.

How could Obama possibly be losing media allies? They created him - they are not going to abandon him. That would be like drowning your child.

Ubama has jumped the shark with his absurd "sky is falling" rhetoric over relatively miniscule cuts in spending increases, and even the ignorant chattering class has taken notice. But when Ubama takes his gambit to the level of threatening the safety and livelihood of regular American families in order to bolster his phony claims of calamity, even the most sycophantic Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms have to balk at continuing to cover for their African communist hero. I mean, how much credibility do those newsrooms have left anyway?
