Three-fer so far - the AP, naturally, Ashleigh Banfield of CNN, and Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC. Full-court press is on. These, mind you, are our high-principled guardians against government oppression. I’d be curious to know where they’re getting their marching orders, but that they are getting marching orders from the Democrats is no longer in question.

...to keep using an otherwise routine federal funding bill...

That's the problem right there. There is nothing "routine" about these continuing funding resolutions. They are an abuse of the Constitution, because the Democrats refuse to pass an annual budget bill in the Senate that forces them to go on the record for or against certain spending programs.

It's their refusal to pass a budget that can then go to reconciliation committees that is at the root of all of this.

People are getting much to cozy with the "new normal" of continuing resolution bills. Just pass a budget already!

The media is filled with elitist who “want to make a difference,” meaning tell other people what to do. Naturally they ally with like minded people who have the power to make other people do what they want. The whole pitch of the media is to lie, trick and persuade people to give up liberty and let the elitist decide what is best.

The only way to fight the media is for every republican who goes on TV to say “We funded the government.” And no matter what the talking head says the response is “We funded the government.” After this happens four or five times the republican’s response should be “Denny Crain”.

Andrew currently works in marketing for an anti-poverty campaigning charity. He holds a degree in journalism and an MA in International Relations. His main interests are the arts (particularly comedy and theatre), the politics of social justice, the environment and natural history.

Sure sounds like an objective journ-o-list to me!

Is this a surprise? You should have seen my local rag after Obamacare was passed. Nothing but glowing stories about how poor, destitute Americans were now going to get health care for THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES!!! Yes, just imagine it....tens of millions of Americans who've never seen a doctor or been inside a hospital. Probably could never buy band-aids or aspirin the poor wretches.

Of course, no stories at all about whether the whole thing was unconstitutional or unaffordable. It was all "hey, look at this wonderful, new program the government is providing for us!!!! Isn't is wonderful!!!! Thank you Dear Barack Obama our great and wonderful leader!!! Gee, I sure hope those nasty, evil Republicans don't try to repeal this wonderful government program."

He’s close, but it ain’t the newspaper stories. It’s the AP top of the hour drive-time headline news.

Ahhh, Associated crAP——— think how much this slithering gang has done over the years to damage newspaper circulation in the United States.

Daily print circ numbers around the US were declining and papers dying long before the internet came around and IMHO the crAP contributed greatly to the erosion of readership.

Nearly all of the non-local stories in my Hearst owned puppy trainer are of crAP origin.

Regarding: Government shutdowns caused by a standoff between the White House and Congress

I remember in the 80's when Pres. Reagan faced down Congress by keeping his promise to veto a pork-laden spending bill.

The Fed government briefly "shut down" (more or less), with the press declaring a national disaster. They showed footage of Park Rangers shutting down access to our national treasures, weeping children somewhere (I forget the context, but I'm certain there was at least one kid from each major race and major gender in the scene), and so on.

There was a loud clamor aimed squarely at Reagan. This "disaster" was obviously 100% Reagan's fault, because ...
The President, willing to destroy America for selfish political gain, was holding our nation hostage by obstinately refusing to sign a reasonable bill sent to him by Congress!!

Reagan was forced to cave.

And the GOP learned an important lesson (or thought they had) from this defeat, namely that: In a White House / Congress showdown such as this, the President will lose.

Then this same standoff repeated in the 90's, with the party lines reversed - a GOP-controlled Congress in their High Noon moment against the Democrat Prez, surrounded by his adoring interns in the White House.

The GOP figured, "Ha! We've seen this exact same situation before. At last! Now it's OUR turn to win one of these showdowns".

Again, the media performed their sacred Chicken Little duties - the Park Rangers, the innocent children, etc etc.

Only THIS time around (surprise surprise), the clamor from the media was all against Newt and all the other Congressional Republicans. This "disaster" was obviously 100% Congress's fault, because ...
The Congress, willing to destroy America for selfish political gain, was holding our nation hostage by obstinately refusing to send a reasonable bill to the President that he would be able to sign!!
