ABC Hypes Obama 'Talking Tough' on V.A. Scandal, But Devotes More Air Time to Pickpockets

Tuesday's World News on ABC minimized any sense of the Obama administration's responsibility in the ongoing V.A. scandal, and spent the least amount of air time on the issue among the Big Three networks' evening newscasts. The program actually aired segments on pickpocketing and custom mobile homes than lasted about a half a minute longer each than their report on the scandal.

Just when you thought the alphabet media had reached it's apex with their pathetic reporting, they outdo themselves and you get this....

The media will fall in line, and the preezy knows it. And libs are already pounding the “this is nothing but another Benghazi type non-story/phoney scandal” drums.

Shortly after (if) 0bama leaves office, the MSM will use the cheap excuse of a lie that upon reflection... because of the color of his skin they were kind-of-like his lapdogs and the public can understand that.

Then they will relentlessly attack the new Republican President from every trumped-up angle as if their journalistic standards are back to normal.

Diane Sawyer liked reporting on the tiny homes, too.

Of course she skipped over the major fact that the Undocumented Kenyan has helped destroy much of the economy so people need the tiny homes.

I’m sure she just accidentally overlooked that tiny fact.

Bill Press, formerly of CNN, just called the va scandal just another conspiracy theory invented by the GOP on MSNBC.

Odumbo “Talking Tough”, what a joke. The only reason odumbo even addressed the VA issue was he and his ilk got caught with their hand in the cookie jar and he was forced to say something to keep face. He is a phony and anyone who heard his so called “outrage” speech can simply see that.

Words cannot describe how much I despise the creep.

If you notice Obama never addresses problems until he checks the political winds instead of taking direct action as good leadership does...

Once he gets a feel of the land...he speaks as though he is on top of the issue, placates the lapdog media just enough, sends out his talking points and finds out when his next tee time is....
