The Tingly Legs of the Press

Why is it press can see media corruption just fine overseas while straining their eyes to ignore it here?

Remember for a minute how Dems have attacked Rupert Murdoch and News Corp for months over tactics one of Murdoch’s newspapers used in Britain. And if you continue to follow their criticism, they even tie it to British prime minister David Cameron — or attempt to. So everyone loves to make something of the so-called cozy relationship between Cameron and Murdoch into an item, especially the left here. I don’t want to get into that whole scandal. But its funny how it plays out.

Now look at this POTUS and the relationship between Media Matters and its entire liberal press establishment here, and their many tentacles. Let the hobnobbing continue. How dare anyone interupt the love fest.  Funny how that relationship is the furthest thing from concern to liberals. Even as this prez gives a chilling reaction to the first amendment rights of others, the liberals and their fawning press continue to ignore and dismiss this intimate relationship. Its far beyond flirting. It isn”t even an “on and off fling” or a trist; its all on all the time. Like Obama’s  campaign asks, “are you in?”

Yet they will follow every juicy tid bit they can find that might tie Murdoch or Fox to political power. They’ll even cover hearings on the “scandal” in Britain. On the uber left, politics is in bed with the media and it is celebrated. They have their dreamy Marxist in the WH and they cannot be deterred. Then add the celebrity connections and WH  fundraising to Hollyweird and you have a complete circus of a media. 

You can always count on the leftist media to hold up its end by asking just the right questions at just the right time. Ironic how they can attack any perception of of political power in media, or visa versa, in the UK while their choreographed dance is in full swing at home. Its not even hidden behind a curtain here; its right in your face and complimented —  and they reserve the right to fawn over any leftist, the worse they are the more they like them.  That will get you places here where it could put you on the witness stand in the UK. They say no one does a scandal like they do in the US; but no, it is no scandal if is right out in the open!  Clinton should have played Lewinsky that way, take a lesson Bill.

The heck with campaign advisors, Obama has lamestream licking his heels. Who needs Axelrod?

And this is the same liberal press taking  great pleasure in reminding  us of Nixon, how bad Watergate really was,  and about “the enemy list”. That scheming “Tricky Dick”.

Nixon move over

Funny Obama has an enemy list, Republican donors and such, but they don’t see any problem with that–even when he puts it out there in public and rubs it in their collective faces, to the whole world. It is just politics, they tell us. However, Obama has a bigger friends list, including media, no doubt trumping any suspicion about his enemy list. They, the friends of Obama, are even in it to the point of limiting the first amendment for others, and it does not appear to bother them in the least.

Yet give them some juicy “scandal” like Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper, however distant, with any tie to political powers in the UK and they’re all over it, foaming at the mouth. But they go to any length to ignore interconnections, co-mingling, and foreplay here right in front of their eyes. The left never fails to demonstrate its open hypocrisy.

They hitched their cart to Obama’s train, now see how far it drags them..
