As the years quickly pass by your Commander is still amazed to experience the ebb and flow of the main-stream media’s sentiments toward our Commander and Chiefs. One minute they love our President, and the next they are writing scathing articles about his performance. It is particularly fascinating to witness the most recent 180 degree shift against Barack Hussein Obama; because the press has from the earliest days of his candidacy been spewing nothing but love and adoration.
If you have not already read the latest essay from the poisoned pen of New York Times writer Maureen Dowd, you will find it well worth your time.
Surely you will recall that I am not a fan of Dowd’s pen, and one must wonder what it would be like to be married to a woman who appears to have negative feelings toward everything and everyone, even her once beloved liberal political aficionados. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to sit in the White House this morning when the inner-circle read Dowd’s latest diatribe. I bet Rahm Emanuel said the big bad word.
Now that the media has realized that the Democrat Party is headed for a fall from its lofty perch, the pundits are running for cover and turning on their own just as some wild animals do when they eat their young. Personally I find this almost amusing, but also tragic that our media has totally lost its objectivity and ability to report any story honestly as called for in various publications’ mission statements.
William Randolph Hearst must be laughing loudly from his grave, because he was one of the most successful practioniers of tabloid journalism and political subversion. Shockingly, for a change I agree with Maureen Dowd’s appraisal of the new furniture in the Oval Office. It looks like a remodeled Holiday Inn somewhere in the middle of nowhere instead of the stately palace of power befitting the office of the President of the United States.
Obviously not all but an increasing number of the all-knowing, all-seeing elite liberal Press Corp on-board the U.S.S. Obama seem to have called an "ABANDON SHIP" alert. If you are like me, you’re starting to wonder just who you can believe in the journalism world as the crucial November 2010 election approaches.
