Bias in the media: Obama, their new god
A column by the Editor
posted September 16, 2008
COLUMN – I find it hugely amusing that
while the national media is so focused on Gov. Sarah Palin and hoping,
and even distorting her words, to make her appear to be unqualified to
be Vice President that they continuously ignore and explain away Sen.
Obama’s constant, and often telling, off the cuff remarks and his lack
of qualifications to be President. Let’s be honest here, the media will
“correct” Obama, or even explain what he “must have meant”, when he
goes off script. And just for the record, Sen. John McCain is running
against Sen. Obama for President, not Gov. Palin.
The media explained away Sen. Obama’s comment that he was going to
visit all 57 states (there are 50 states in the US and 57 in the
Islamic World) as him just being tired. I accepted that, but it still
raised an eyebrow.
More recently Sen. Obama made yet another Islamic Freudian slip when he
told George Stephanopoulos, “You are absolutely right that John McCain,
uh, has not talked about my Muslim faith.” Count on Bill Clinton’s
former trusted sidekick turned “objective journalist” to try to save
the messiah, “You mean your Christian faith.”
On Monday Sen. Obama was off script again on ABC’s Good Morning America
when he was asked about alleged (by the media) false ads from Sen.
McCain. The obviously scripted set-up for Sen. Obama to sting Sen.
McCain went awry when Sen. Obama replied quite honestly saying, “If
we're going to ask questions about, you know, who has been promulgating
negative ads that are completely unrelated to the issues at hand, I
think I win that contest pretty handily."
Not a peep from the media. In fact, ABC reported on their website that
Obama must have meant John McCain would win that contest in their
coverage of the appearance.
Now just imagine if Sen. McCain had actually made the same statement.
It would be headline news from now until the election in November.
Meanwhile the media is trying to paint Gov. Palin as some sort of
religious fanatic for asking people to pray that our sons and daughters
(her son included) fighting Islamic terrorist are within God’s will
while ignoring Obama and the church he attended for 20 years with
Pastor Jeremiah Wright and its connection to Louis Farrakhan and the
Nation of Islam. Obama also refused to reject Farrakhan’s endorsement
until forced to do so by Hillary Clinton. Nope, nothing radical there.
The media just accepts Obama’s account that he, in his 20 years of
going to the church, never had any idea Rev. Wright held such views or
that the church supported Farrakhan. Only someone with an IQ below that
of the average doorknob would believe such foolishness.
The media instead runs stories of polls about how the “world wants
Obama for President”. Who gives a rats rear-end what the “world wants”,
they can’t vote in America. One poll in Europe showed they wanted Obama
by a margin of 80+%. Another poll showed almost 60% of the same people
wanted to see America weakened. Is anybody paying attention?
I love the “national polls” the media trots out every day, as if that
means anything. “A national poll out today shows,” and they state the
numbers that are always skewed towards the liberals anyway. The nation
does not elect the president, the states do. It is called the Electoral
College and it was designed by people over 200 years ago that were a
hundred times smarter than a lot of the government educated people
Anyone with a fifth grade education knows this, but the media just
can’t help pushing “democracy”, something our Constitution was written
to prevent in America.
I am enjoying this election. The national media is showing their
blatant bias and have even signed on to the “Jesus was a community
organizer, like Obama, and Pilate was a Governor” phrase.
I hate to tell Sen. Obama, Democrats, and the media, Jesus was not a
community organizer, He is the Son of God. They would know that if they
