Media has interesting perspective on what's newsworthy
Have you noticed what the media is not talking about about with much urgency? Let’s start with the need for Eric Holder to go to jail. Where is the mainstream media’s outrage over Holder’s lies, subterfuge, and behavior that has resulted in hundreds of Mexicans being murdered by guns he is responsible for sending into that country? Where is the ACLU and the media cries for prosecution of Holder, Clinton, A.T.F., and everyone else who is even tangentially involved in what can only be viewed as a criminal undertaking that led to the murder of U.S. border agents? Why aren’t they demanding investigations and searching out the almost certain involvement of the Obama WHite House? Do they think underlings would initiate providing weapons illegally to outlaw drugs groups in a foreign country, without the tacit approval of the White House?
Oh, I know why they aren’t outraged by this activity – Herman Cain was accused by a person of whom the most generous thing that can be said, is that she’s of questionable morals and highly suspicious motives. With all sarcasm intended, I can appreciate that round the clock every day reporting of unsubstantiated, unfounded, salacious lies is more important than the lives of Americans lost because of the actions of Cabinet level personnel and quite probably the White House itself.
Where has the media been in reporting ad nauseum the particulars of Obama’s refusing to build the Keystone Pipeline? Why have they while perhaps not quietly, but most certainly they have been passive in their condemnation of the so-called leader who called Americans lazy, and who daily spins lies about a mythical jobs bill – given him a wink and a pass as America loses out on by some reports 20,000 jobs? And even if as the Obama people claim it’s 6,000 jobs, wouldn’t the American people benefit from those jobs and the ancillary businesses that would come about because of the pipeline? Doesn’t the press think this deserves a more prominent place in the news than Gloria Allred clients attacking Herman Cain?
Where is the media as Obama’s EPA moves to stop the use of coal, which is cheap, plentiful, and keeps people employed – especially as we head into the heating season – when people will have to decide between heating fuel and breakfast cereal? Isn’t this more important than a baseless allegation from 15 years ago by a woman who went on too make other claims of sexual harassment at her next place of employment?
Where is media when Obama standing in Hawaii referred to it as being part of Asia? Oh, that’s right they were busy wagging their heads and gasping for air, because Herman fumbled a question on Obama’s Libyan policy. The bottom line is Obama’s Libyan policy was illegal invasion and the murder of the leader of a sovereign country. But they’re the media and they know more than we do.
Where is the media reporting when Michelle Obama standing in Hawaii on the taxpayer”s dime, said that poor people (the translation of her reference to people living in communities that do have grocery stores), should buy steaks and arugula? Should the media be pointing out the utter ignorance of her statement? Perhaps the media could have reminded her that there are nearly 48 million Americans on food stamps. And said being the case, perhaps the media should be reporting that as I predicted two years ago, the cost of living is going through the roof, and that spending their food stamps on steaks and arugula wouldn’t be prudent? Shouldn’t the media report how out of touch and clueless she is? Shouldn’t they be asking if her $15,000 day plus meals and expenses makeup person, who she flies around the world at taxpayer expense, is there with her? We know Oprah uses the same person., but Oprah is a billionaire spending her own money – big difference.
Oh, I just realized why they didn’t have time to report on that. They were busy calling Gloria Cain, the lovely wife of Herman Cain, clueless because after all, wives are always the last to know their husbands are cheating. They were busy making comments about the way Mrs. Cain looked, as Greta Van Sustern interviewed her.
Whew – glad I was able to get that all cleared up. For a moment I thought they weren’t doing their jobs.
