Newsweek Cover Story: 'Why Are Obama's Critics So Dumb?'
Newsbusters ^ | 15 Jan 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 01/16/2012 6:20:17 AM PST by Rummyfan

The Weekly Standard's Mark Hemingway wrote a few hours ago, "If in recent years it seems as if Newsweek has been descending into self-parody, it's still hard to imagine that this is real."

Indeed.

Is there anything the mainstream media won't do to get Obama reelected?

I have to admit that I didn’t believe this story, so I had to go to the Newsweek web site to see it for myself. And, there it was: http://www.thedailybeast.com/content/newsweek/_jcr_content/c-col/oncover_0/image.img.jpg/1326688145842.jpg

I think this shows how desperate the media are: they don’t think his re-election chances are very good and are dropping all pretensions of being unbiased (the few that still pretend that) and betting the farm on getting zero another term. They must have their king!

‘Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?’

Set the meme, feed the meme, reinforce the meme.....
All who don’t follow the Gay Media-approved narrative could be looking for new jobs. You don’t want to be looking for a new job in THIS economy, do you, Mr. Media Guy?

Crap like this “Headline” is precisely why Newsweak was sold for $1.00 and overpriced at that.

Last time I saw an issue of NewsWeak, it was about 8 pages long and printed on cheap, thin, tissue-like paper. Which made me think it must be good for something.

My opinion of journalism (TV, print, media, etc.) is that it is probably the most disgusting of professions, equaling perhaps those of pedophile perverts, predators....and Congressman/Senators.....the old adage of “first, kill all the lawyers” really needs to be updated.

They use the dumb tactic over and over on anyone that is Conservative and critical of this administration. The race card was worn out. This must be Alexrods new MSM coordinated strategy for 2012.

And the only reason to mention race when being critical of 0bama is when you point out that he uses his “race” as a criticism shield.

In 2003, worldwide circulation was more than 4 million, including 2.7 million in the U.S; by 2010 it was down to 1.5 million (with newsstand sales declining to just over 40 thousand copies per week).

This board isn’t run by your local union...seniority doesn’t count...so taking into account the intelligence factor, you have no basis at all being here.

Good GOD, they don't even pretend to be objective anymore.

Reminds me of what a friend of mine who drives a school bus part time told me recently: He said that you wouldn't believe the Obama worship crap the teachers are telling the grade school kids these days. Government education (indoctrination) hard at work these days.

Turn the question around: Why do Obama supporters believe they’re so smart when it’s obviously untrue?

Or, “Are Obama critics dumb enough to buy this magazine based on a over-sensationalized headline? I hope so!”

I’ve got a question for Oblahblah: What in God’s name makes you think we want to look up your nose?

LOL!

The original Mussolini could give a speech in English without a teleprompter to the American people from Alaska to Florida.

A better question would be why no one reads NEWSWEAK any more.Could it be because of idiotic stories like this one?
