IRS: Shame and Loathing on the Media Trail
PJ Media ^ | June 25,2014 | Roger L Simon

Posted on 06/26/2014 1:17:36 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Obama is beside the point. They don’t even like Obama anymore. Nothing could be more obvious. Almost nobody does. But they won’t say so in public because that would mean that they would be revealed as fools who believed the most banal tripe imaginable. It would also mean admitting Barack Obama never really existed, that they invented him. He was their projection. Barack Obama is the creation of the New York Times, et al. Without them he would never have happened and they know it.

So the media are left in an untenable position. If you say Barack Obama is a mistake, then you yourself are a mistake. Who wants that?

No wonder they won’t investigate the scandals. No wonder they won’t report any of this. They are too ashamed of themselves to speak.

That is already evident in the response to the IRS scandal. It is metastasizing rapidly despite the near blackout by the MSM. In one recent poll 63 percent of Democrats think the IRS intentionally destroyed the emails. Democrats. How’d they find that out? Not from the New York Times.

Get ready for endless tantrums of many sorts. When moral narcissism of the level we have been experiencing breaks down, anything can happen. The media will do almost anything to preserve their fragile selves. Evasion, distraction and outright lies will be continuous and may reach unprecedented levels.

The mainstream media has been in trouble for years, but their silence about the ills of the Obama administration has finished them off as never before. They will stumble on, but from here on in they will be, as was said of the U.S. during the Vietnam era, a “pitiful, helpless giant.”

“that they would be revealed as fools “

to me, that is so flawed. the msm never thought, or said, that Obama would somehow fix our problems.
that would be like people saying castro or stalin were going to fix problems.
to them, Obama was going to lead a revolution, bloodless and oh so 21st century, but definitely to dismantle America.

It would be COOL to have a person in the Oval Office with a dark skin.

But only if he has credentials as a “Person of the People”.

So this doofus was gotten all up in fancy surroundings and trotted out as “the New Progressive (mixed-race) all-inclusive Solidarity candidate”, was well-funded by some very large contributors to The Cause, and was sprung on the unsuspecting public, who was allowed to project almost any image upon him they found favorable.

Pride is my favorite sin.

It blinds a person to everything else.

Or they could be without shame, and are propping up Obama because he is destroying our representative republic and bringing in the totalitarian left wing state which they, leftwing radicals they are, have no problem with.

Evasion, distraction and outright lies . . .

That's been the modus operandi of the MSM since at least the early 1970's when I first started paying attention to them.

Really, the writer needs to get out and spend more time around those possessing what passes for 'progressive' thought these days, including those found in journalism schools.

These people are full blown Red Guard minus the khaki jacket & funny cap, and they will be out for blood before very long.

Every human craves self-validation, and those running the MSM receive it in spades by virtue of their position as self-appointed opinion leaders. Their self-esteem, because they have not (yet) learned to repudiate and subordinate it in favor of esteem for Jesus, cannot stand admitting error, either in their own personal choices or in the atheistic institutions on which they rely.

This is at its core a spiritual battle. Demons are fighting on behalf of the political and journalistic powers in the US and abroad.

Simon's article is excellent.

“What’s it like being totally detached from reality? “

with all due respect, I think you’re missing my point.
they wanted the same “transformation” as Obama did. that’s all i’m saying.

Skeeter, you took the words right out of my brain. The media are without shame and have been for decades. This totalitarian guy is their wet dream.

Pride is, IMO, the basis of all sin.

When interviewing an ObamaCultist or serving on a panel with them, sane media folk ought to openly laugh at the contortions these BO defenders offer as excuses for his outrageous failures.

They should be held up to ridicule because they fancy themselves as smarter than anyone else, yet they fell for this fraud hook, line, and sinker. They deserve no mercy for what they have done to this country.

20 years ago only conservatives recognized the biased media.

Today, even low information voters recognize the media is biased.

The media doesn’t recognize that the’re bias is no longer whispers - it’s accepted by a majority of Americans. What’s worse, their lack of credible reporting is also recognized which is why America has moved on from the MSM.

Roger that. It’s the root cause. Just as “Ye shall be as gods” was the root cause of the original one.

I just went to the big three websites: ABC, CBS and NBC and searched their sites for “IRS Emails”.

The results...

CBS= 16,000+ hits on their site
ABC= 6,000+ hits...
NBC= 0 hits...

No kidding, no foolin’...

The last story done by NBC was on June 13th, 2014.

Total media malfeasance.

It does no one any good to ascribe good intentions to these people when they’ve not provided a shred of evidence that they intend any.
