Media Lap Dogs in New Low

The dishonesty of the mainstream press is nothing new to those who pay attention, but it is reaching new heights and will destroy an America whose democratic institutions depend on an educated citizenry.

The four-month old Romney tape that the mainstream media is hyperventilating about, after ridiculing for several days Romney’s truthful comments about the failure of Obama’s entire foreign policy – instead of focusing on the obvious collapse of that policy, we now learn that the tape in question was doctored – possibly by Mother Jones. For 40 years we have been witnessing the metamorphosis of almost the entire press corps, both television and print, into an arm of the Democratic Party. Also yesterday we learned that the Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Holder, has been feeding stories to Media Matters.

The media lap dogs have been losing audience and readers, but they still have enormous power to deceive. Traditional Americans who value the truth have to do everything in their power to put these charlatans out of business. I am talking about NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Newsweek and Time. Do not support them; do not give them an audience until they begin to show some balance in their reporting and analysis.

Media lap dogs in hot pursuit of the wrong story

By Charles Hurt September 18, 2012 The Washington Times

What we are in the midst of witnessing right now is a complete, Fukushima-style meltdown of the mainstream media.

Without these slobbering lap dogs, President Obama never would have been elected in the first place. And now they are his only hope for staying in office amid all the global violence, a morbidly paralyzed economy and a national crisis of confidence so profound that the American Dream has become nothing more than quaint fiction for millions.

Nearly four years after President Obama promised to ease Arab hatred of America, the Middle East burns hotter than ever. Polls show America has never been more deeply despised.

Respected newspapers around the world report that the Obama administration was explicitly warned days before the attack on the American Consulate in Libya in which our ambassador was brutally killed. But officials did nothing to stop the worst terrorist attack on the U.S. since 9/11.

Four years after promising to cut the deficit in half, President Obama has exploded the debt to a record $16 trillion. Welfare rolls have ballooned to levels once unimaginable in America and you are actually paying for campaigns to recruit more people onto welfare.

Then last week, the Obama administration finally acknowledged that the $50 billion in defense cuts it prefers over trimming back welfare programs and cutting wasteful government spending will be "deeply destructive to national security, domestic investments and core government functions."

Oh, and then our credit rating got downgraded. Again. Both humiliating firsts.

So, what flings our national newshounds into a full-blown choking frenzy? An apparent cover-up over the terrorist attack in Libya? The nationwide squalor under the Obama economy? Exposes into all the wasteful spending that should be cut before we junk our national defense?

Nope. Some stupid comment Mitt Romney made four months ago at a fundraiser lamenting that a record-low number of Americans are making enough money anymore to actually pay income taxes.

Is it really a news flash to these people that Mr. Romney can say incredibly idiotic things in the goofiest of ways? Even Mr. Romney himself would probably concede that he doesn't quite have the silver tongue of President Obama. But, hopefully, it is not forked, either.

How such a minor and long-ago statement could blot out coverage of a disastrous foreign policy, crushing debt and total economic malaise is more than most rational people can comprehend. Which is why most rational people do not become national political reporters.

Making the whole mess even more odious is that the secret, potentially illegal recording of Mr. Romney was unearthed by a relative of Obama mentor Jimmy Carter and quickly peddled to the press by openly avowedly liberal activists.

But there is hope. Earlier this week, a White House spokesman and an Obama campaign official answered questions from reporters during a flight on Air Force One. A reporter grilled the White House -- and I am not making this up -- about what the president thought of the impersonation of him on the previous "Saturday Night Live" episode.

Upon the conclusion of the reporters' questions, according to the pool report, the campaign official rewarded the drooling lap dogs by offering them "home-baked cookies."

But, standing tall, uncompromising and fearless, the press declined the campaign's sweets.

I'm wondering if the ordinary Joe Shmoe would even stop and think about all this information that puts Obama in an undesirable light? Would they stop and try to ponder this info and then realize that Obama is nothing but a chronic liar, a cheat, and a dirty sneaky underhanded politician?

Will they just go to the voting booth and vote for him anyway because of a misguided deep rooted hate for Conservative Republicans?
My take on this is that the Liberals including the idiots in the main stream media who are having second thoughts about Obama, and also the Joe Shmoes of this country who are so used to putting a check on any name with a "D" after it, will continue to do so.
I'm afraid that this will continue to happen in this country.

Romney needs to make a better case for himself. Why isn't he harping on the high prices we're paying for gasoline? This is the first place I would go if I were running for president.
Maybe he could smoke out little Chuckie Schumer. We need an idiot Liberal Democrat to go to Egypt right now and beg the Saudis for more oil. Heck, maybe Obama can go over there with him. He's good at apologies, and if the Saudis decide to detain them, this would surely be no great loss to our country.

What was the nature of the doctored tape? I hadn't heard about that?

Also, is anyone curious why a 5 month old tape surfaces NOW, 6-7 weeks before election? Did Obama say "great catch, let's hold it til mid-sept" for best impact?

This is all over the internet. See, for example,

It is really depressing how blatant the press is in favor of Obama:they simply refuse to report anything that is bad about Obama and are relentless in pursuing Romney's non stories. I don't know how Romney can overcome this. He is beginning to look spooked. The American people have no idea what is really going on.You can add Yahoo and Portland Herald to the list.

If it truly was doctored, the information about the tape needs to come out. Why don't I hear Hannity or Rush talking about this?

Both Rush and Hannity have commented about the one to two minute missing segment. I have seen a report that the person who did the illegal taping with his cell phone says that there was a momentarty equipment malfunction.

Romney hasn't denied making the comments, nor has he claimed that they were taken out of context. Apparently, as president he would have no concern for 47 percent of the electorate. That's what we need, a president who represents the 1 percent of the population with the most money. Let's bring back serfdom as practiced in imperial Russia. Hooray for the 19th century.
