Record 19 reporters, media execs join Team Obama
Washington Examiner ^ | 2/17/12 | Paul Bedard

For some Washington reporters and media execs, cheering their team from the sidelines just isn’t good enough: Tugging on a red, white and blue Team Obama jersey is the answer. That’s the case for a whopping 19 journalists and media executives, including five from the Washington Post and three each from ABC and CNN, who’ve gone into the administration or center-left groups supporting the president. Those inside the administration hit 14 this month when the Post’s Stephen Barr joined the Labor Department. That’s a record, say some revolving door watchers, and could even be much higher:

and the only candidate or republican right now who is willing to tell the truth is Newt, the only republicans are Sarah, and Col Allen West.

The MSM and the media will keep covering for their messiah as long as the RNC, GOP stay cowards..

HEY GOP THE MEDIA WILL NEVER LIKE YOU

Intead of being the unpaid spokesmen for the Obama Administratin (as so-called “journalists”) they are now the PAID spokespeople for the Administration (their salaries and benefits paid for by you and me). Their song has remained exactly the same; their lyrics are written for them by David Axelrod and any cost associated with this was simply the expense of trasmnitting today’s message for the parrots to be read, word for word, at the Washington “Post”, NY “Times”, ABC, NBC, CBS, the NY Times or any cable channel owned by General Electric.

Over at the White House, there’s a hint of desperation in the air.

Sure, more or less ALL of sane America loathes Hussein, but he’s determined to win a second term anyway.

And with the help of his now augmented Ministry of Propaganda, he just may milk a win utilizing the bloc of America’s Certifiable Idiots.

..... More evidence that Team “O” is planning a massive .... and probably unprecedented .... Media blitz. Unless the GOP is prepared for this coming monolithic onslaught, they will never know what hit them.

True, a few have come out of the closet and into the open, but the closet is stilled overflowing with shameless propagandists ready to continue their poorly disguised shilling for Obama.

There is so much material here for the Fall campaign. Though the Repubs. aren't smart enough to run with it and/or the MSN won't let the Commercials on the Air.

The Repubs should have a Web site just loaded down with Commercials that the Media won't run showing the graft, and bias of the Dems/Media.

And the GOP will continue to allow CNN and ABC to officiate the debates.

It’s better to have them officially on his team than pretending to be journalists while they’re unofficially on his team.

Probably what’s gone on in Chicago for years but on a grander scale.

We need to expose the media.

I say put 5000 people on Stephie’s lawn. Another 5000 on Matthews lawn and as many people as you can get by the windows of the TV stations that broadcast with the street as the background.

A couple of “Stephy = Goebbels” signs placed correctly would ruffle some feathers. Then wait with the video camera as the Hitler Youth come out and mess the person up.

Then send it viral.

This is why I posted my ranting vanity earlier. Our candidates need to call these networks out and on the air, not with some BS letter to the editor that will only see the bottom of a trash can.

Ya know, it would REALLY be an interesting and enlightening moment if the Republicans (not likely!) or a conservative would ACTUALLY tell the truth about zero and the Dems.

We know that, if that were to happen, the Dems would sick their attack dogs in the DBM on anyone with the spine (or the cajones!) to take the left head on and fight them with their own words and actions.

Of course, I’m just naive thinking that will ever happen in America. Both sides are part of the same Good ole boys club and neither side wants to air the dirty laundry that BOTH sides wear!!!

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

what gets me is that you and I know the MSM are biased and corrupt, they are just the Dems propaganda wing.

Why on this earth can the GOP not call these corrupt bastards out, surely they should know that they are never going to be liked?

Also there are still millions upon millions who turn their news on at night, their local news, their evening news, their CNN ETC and still think they are being told the truth with no bias.

I wish I had a $ for every time I have pointed out issues like the gun running, green energy pay back scam, black panthers, Wright, Ayers, ACORN, giving back the Winston Churchill statue , the list is endless but you get my drift and they turn around and always say

“are you sure I never heard that on the news tonight?”
or
“If it were true the news would have mentioned it and I just finished watching the news”

It is astounding but also sickening that there is millions out there who are still clueless to the MSM and they will be until our side calls them out at every chance.

Then there is the crap useless shows for the really stupid idiots out there to watch like Ellen, Oprah, their soaps, Today show, Good morning America etc.

We will lose this election unless Romney steps out, infact now the 3 of them have destroyed each other maybe it is time to get someone else and the establishment for once backs them to the hilt , with balls, with guts and CALLS OUT THIS MEDIA

I remember a movie about the era in Germany just prior to the Second World War, when Hitler was in power and a renter asked his landlady about some crazy statement that was being put out by the government and just how she could believe such nonsense. She responded: “Well, I read it in the Volkische Beobachter”. Certainly, the circustances are different today but the idea is the same; feed enough propaganda, disguise it as “news” and far too many people will buy into it, unthinkingly. Thus, you can have Charlie Rose (of NPR, funded with our tax money) ask Santroum about his views on some joke one of his supporters told but the same Charlie Rose’s idea of a tough question to a lib Dem whom he agrees with is, “well, when are you going to follow your wife’s advice and stop eating cheeseburgers?” with nary a word about scandalous conduct by close associates, in the past or present, much less a slightly critical word concerning any supporter of that politician.

true and what NAZI Germany showed us that even after the war there were still Germans who still refused to believe the facts and that they were lied to.

In a way I can understand those who do not follow politics, the left surely knows they have the media but there are still some on our side who still cannot grasp the basic point of the media lies and covers for the left or why on earth does the RNC/GOP not call these people out every day.
