25 Obama lies Mainstream Media ignore

November 9, 2015

Now that the media have shown their eagerness to expose the “lies” of presidential candidate Ben Carson, they might want to review some of the nuggets they overlooked in the rise of Barack Obama. To be sure, there is no going back, but future generations of journalists might benefit from seeing how shamelessly the fourth estate transformed itself into the Democrats’ fifth column.

Mainstream Media – 48 reasons not to trust them

May 19, 2015

The American mainstream media is filled to the brim with liars, frauds, partisans, cheats, plagiarists, and those who tolerate, defend and enable all of them. There is no American institution — not the NFL, not the tobacco companies, not any corporation or enterprise regularly targeted by the media — that engages in anywhere near the amount of fraud and dishonesty that serially oozes from Our Media Overlords.

Forget bias for a moment. Forget mistakes and misstatements and stupid or nasty things said during live telecasts. There isn’t enough Internet to begin to list the countless instances of left-wing bias and politicking and idiocy the media engage in. What I’ve accumulated below is the scripted, planned and intentional.

Although I’m sure that more than a few examples have been overlooked (let me know which ones in the comments), this list is still a mind-blowing reminder of just how shamelessly corrupt the American media is. For these are the intentional lies, the intentional violations of ethics, the intentional manipulations, the intentional attempts to hurt the political right by employing the kind of tactics used by Third World propagandists.

MSNBC caught airing a deceptively edited video and flagrantly lying to its viewers

October 16, 2013

MSNBC has been caught airing a deceptively edited video of a rally that took place in Washington D.C. over the weekend, in addition to flagrantly lying to its viewer

Actor James Woods knows full well Big Media is in the tank for Obama

August 5, 2013

Actor James Woods knows full well the media is in the tank for President Barack Obama.
The White House Down star also understands what a tipping point is, and why that might mean a great deal to even biased press outlets.
Woods thinks such a point may have been reached regarding that “phony” scandal involving the death of four Americans in Benghazi. A recent blockbuster story by CNN has the actor in an optimistic mood that the press will start doing its job regarding the Commander in Chief’s action in the matter.
The key to #BENGAZHI atrocity being solved may now lie with the press. Even running dogs like our Lib press may turn on Obama for Pulitzers.
When Obama lackeys like CNN start doing true investigative journalism like the CIA exposé today, there is now a sense of blood in the water.

Obama Media dancing with the Devil

May 5, 2013

Political satirist Greg Gutfeld said:
The media would not know a good story if they woke up next to it after they were drunk last night. For them Benghazi is like an ugly wallflower at the prom. They just want to dance with Obama all night.
It’s a way of life that’s not without consequences to them or us.

The Washington Post Co. reported Friday an 84% drop in first-quarter profit. To be sure waltzing Obama’s not the only reason. There’s the mindless drivel of the style section gushing over Michelle and her latest upscale food and clothing fancies; the racism of columnists like Eugene Robinson; the mushy leftism of columnists like Meyerson and Dionne; the insult to believers of putting Sally Quinn in charge of the Faith section, but the Post’s papering over the truth for Obama’s a big part of it.
I expect that’s true of the L.A. Times as well, where the writers and the L.A. City Council (!) had a conniption fit at the thought the Koch brothers would buy it up out of bankruptcy and turn it into a real newspaper.

Liberal Bullying is cruising for a bruising

February 10, 2013

Ben Shapiro’s new book, Bullies: How The Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America, is a must-read for anyone interested in politics. The book delves into who the real enemy is and how to combat him. American Thinker had the privilege of interviewing Ben Shapiro about his latest book.
Ben wanted to emphasize that the main bullies are the mass media, including those TV show moderators who “are liberals masquerading as moderates. It is important to start recognizing who the real enemy is here. The one conservative who has done it right is Newt Gingrich, who started attacking the reporters.”
Shapiro’s solution is to have conservative representatives go on the talk show circuit and speak out with gusto when it comes to their ideology. They should be polite by thanking their hosts for the opportunity given, but then they should point out in no uncertain terms that since “I am a conservative and you are a liberal, we have two fundamentally different worldviews, and I just want to let the viewers know this.”

MSNBC deliberately smears gun owners for King Obama’s agenda

January 30, 2013

The agenda-driven cable media outlets have stooped to a new low once again in effort to (openly) support those pushing a gun control agenda.
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir claimed that supporters of gun rights attending a public hearing on Monday interrupted the testimony of Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse Lewis, who was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.
A selective edit of the 15 minute testimony deliberately portrayed the gun rights advocates as “hecklers,” by showing some six seconds, including statements regarding ‘the second amendment shall not be infringed.’

Obama worshipping Media is destroying itself

January 21, 2013

On Thursday, while looking wistfully back at Obama’s first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. In a First Read article that opened with the question, “Is the nation better off than it was four years ago,” senior political director, Mark Murray, did something that neither he, nor NBC News, nor the mainstream media was willing to do during this last presidential campaign: report on Obama’s record.

But there it finally was: The Truth — and from NBC News, no less. Poverty’s up (from 43.6 million to 46.2 million), middle class incomes are down ($50k compared to $52k), the deficit’s exploded (from $10 trillion to $16 trillion), food stamp recipients have skyrocketed (33.5 million to 46.6 million), unemployment hasn’t budged, and the same number of people are without health insurance today as there were in 2009.

Still, NBC News couldn’t even bring itself to report the most damning Obamanomics numbers: a population so despondent by a lack of jobs that enough people have dropped out to shrink the labor market to levels unseen since the 1980s. A chronic long-term unemployment problem unseen in this country since World War II. An unemployment rate disproportionately savaging blacks and Hispanics.

Where was all this news during the 2012 campaign when Obama was applying for a promotion and Romney was applying to replace him?

We know the answer. Rather than report Truth, the media locked arms and circled Obama’s palace in order to protect him from the mindless hordes of racist, sexist Neanderthals who dared criticize The Lightbringer. The media’s weapons of choice were distraction and lies:

Mainstream Media ignores Obama’s power grabs

December 6, 2012

Keith Koffler says… “President Obama is already busy concocting new power grabs.”
That’s plural: “grabs.”
He wants to remove a portion of the power of the purse from Congress by granting himself the ability to raise the debt ceiling, subject to a two-thirds disapproval vote in Congress, which basically means he can raise it at will. If Bush had tried this, Democrats would be sobbing anguished tears all over the floors of Congress about the imperial presidency.
And the White House, in an unusual interference with congressional procedure, has weighed in with support for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s effort to roll back the filibuster, which currently requires 60 votes to end.
“And where’s the media?” I ask rhetorically.

Obama worshiping Media covering up Barack’s Benghazi blame

November 14, 2012

Diversion, distraction, smoke-screen obfuscation … one thing you can say about our newly re-elected President, he has more moves than an NFL open-field running back.
Some scandal rears its ugly head, and bada-boom they launch flack and flares to divert the homing missiles of discovery. A little covering smoke trail, a jump and a jink or two — and the President is safely back in the cocoon of his sanitized image … ever the courageous African-American icon … virtuous to a fault … carrying on the valiant fight for the middle class … and once again flying high above the clouds of suspicion.
Everyone understands that malfeasance only happens with Republican administrations, dontcha know; or so we’re lead to believe by the mainstream media narrative. Remember Fast & Furious? Where did that go? Presto-chango – and the investigation gets somehow sterilized and shelved as Nancy Pelosi announces she “could have had Karl Rove arrested” for President Bush’s Executive Orders.
And then that’s the story … not how Attorney General Eric Holder’s justice department facilitated a gun-running operation that resulted in the murder of U.S. border agent Brian Terry. The D.D.D. — Democratic Disinformation Department (I mean, the mainstream media) runs with that story and suddenly, the President’s thwarting of the investigation gets a pass in the media.
The corruption that is clearly at the heart of what became a massive administration cover-up just simply becomes a non-issue. Reminded me of Bill Clinton, upon being cornered by charges of sexual impropriety and even rape, got a hall pass by the media, because “he lined upright with the issues.”
