Are the Media Beginning to Desert Obama?

When
the leader of the free world lies to the world over and over again
about an event that nearly everyone knew was untrue, it’s time for him
to find another line of work. It’s shocking to me that more than 50
percent of voters say they will vote for him in November.

For
weeks news was coming out that the embassy attacks had nothing to do
with an anti-Muslim film. Even so, the Obama administration — from
President Obama on down — kept lying to us about the cause of the
attacks. Over and over again they diverted attention away from their
misreading of the Arab Spring protests and the real intentions of
worldwide Islam.

Obama was sure he could keep lying because he
believed the media would continue to cover up his lies with their own
lies. Then the media started to look bad in the eyes of the public.

The
major networks were co-opted by ever-expanding alternative news
sources. They were making CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC look bad. How could
amateurs without journalism degrees be beating multi-million-dollar news
agencies like the Associated Press and Reuters? But they were.

The
straw that broke the camel’s back of the liberal news industry was
making public what murdered U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens had
written in his journal. “The journal was found on the floor of the
largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded.”
Stevens was aware of the security risks long before the riots happened.
Here’s how CNN reported the story:

“For
CNN, the ambassador’s writings served as tips about the situation in
Libya, and in Benghazi in particular. CNN took the newsworthy tips and
corroborated them with other sources.”

“A
source familiar with Stevens’ thinking told CNN earlier this week that,
in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried
about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in
Islamic extremism.”

Note
that he wrote about security threats “in the months leading up to his
death.” Months. Are we to believe that he didn’t voice these concerns to
anyone? Is there any mention about a film? Nothing.

There is no doubt that the attack was planned to coincide with the 11th-year
anniversary of 9-11. The date was crucial in understanding the motives
of the Islamists. We in the West think in terms of fives and tens when
it comes to remembrance. Not so in the Muslim world. September 11, 2001
and the choice of United and American airline carriers had symbolic
meaning. So did the 11th anniversary of 9-11.

You and I
know that if such an international blunder had taken place under a
Republican president, there would be demands for resignations from
numerous security advisers to the Secretary of State.

And what’s
the response of Obama and Company? Shoot the messenger. “The State
Department is taking CNN to task for sharing details from Ambassador
Chris Stevens’ diary, before returning the journal to his family. . . .
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s senior adviser Philippe Reines
said: “What [CNN is] not owning up to is reading and transcribing
Chris’s diary well before bothering to tell the family or anyone else
that they took it from the site of the attack.”

CNN didn’t report
on the private content of the diary; it reported on what Stevens was
paid to do as an employee of the United States government. Stevens
worked for us. He was paid by us. The American people have a right to
know what went on.

The media aren’t quite ready to desert Obama
and Company, but if more incriminating news comes out that raises the
questions “What did you Know?” and “When did you know it?,” the media
puppets might have to cut the strings of support for Obama and Company.

    First, the "media" will never cut the cord 'tween itself, and whatever power-block that feeds it. Most "journalists" are plagiarists, taking the hand-outs at "press briefings" and running with them. Those that accidentally DO investigative reporting, are fired (i.e.; Amber Lynn).

    Second, those in power, and those "reporting" on those in power, hold all of you in contempt. Why shouldn't they? You have eaten the Smörgåsbord they set before you for decades, without thought or care.

    Additionally, they no longer depend on your "money" to survive; They get money directly from the "Government" for the propaganda they produce. TARP, bailouts, QE4ever... they "print" the "money" for free, charge you interest, give it to their friends... and you get "Jack".

    Oh well, no big deal.

    Do y'all remember Obama paid to Media to shut their mouth and also don't search background check on Obama's history etc...plus put a lot of camera focus on Obama and of course Media did cheerleader for Obama show and tell from 2008..now of course Media cover up and not want the truth come out because it may turn your stomach or an mind blow.
