I personally think some of this is due to a)the decline in fact-based journalism as the key goal of journalism b)the rise of ideological broadcast channels where people go to get the news from like-minded partisans who say what they already agree with on issues before the viewers even hear a taken on an issue c)the frenzied competition with traditional news media as they try to keep pace with and adjust to new media which more often resembles op-ed pages or letters to the editor or partisan talk radio, d)high profile errors by news media which are then magnified or twisted from mistakes by news providers to nefarious plots to push an agenda (sometimes a mistake is just that — a mistake).
MSNBC – The Propaganda Wing of the Obama Regime
The media has become a running joke in this country. The corrupt, liberal bias has made themselves a laughing stock. I really have no clue how they look themselves in the mirror knowing the dishonesty they push on a daily basis. Luckily, there are many more places to find news these days and we no longer have to rely on them.
Romney has to run against the media which is covering up for Obama and refuses to publicize Obama’s failures.
Every time an issue looms that shows what a disaster Obama has been, the media throws out a “Squirrel!” to distract itself.
WHY haven’t we been talking about the situation in the Middle East, the rape and murder of our Ambassador, and the lousy jobs numbers? Instead, Mother Jones throws out a “Squirrel!” from a speech Romney made in MAY (and, from which Mother Jones edited out several minutes). Easy answer, because if the media actually questions Obama and his administration’s lies, the public will finally see that this Emperor has no clothes. Univision is the only media outlet that has asked Obama ANY questions of substance.
American main stream media is aware that we are facing an impending economic crisis, but they will not follow the narrative of this disastrous Obama economy! They know millions of Americans are gnashing their teeth, hoping to put food on the table! They know many American cities are bankrupt, homelessness is highest in recent memory and high crime rates pervade American towns, because of the disastrous economy, but, they’d rather cover for Obama’s failures, at the detriment of suffering Americans!
The Magic of media news.. has no spark anymore. No respect for any living reporter that I can think of.. nothing but weathermen guessing how the day will turn out.
