Recent examples of the MSM's absolute slavish cultlike worship of the most aggressively partisan and vicious POTUS in recent memory reveal--objectively--that the MSM is not only aggressively partisan and vicious, but they're out of the closet these days. They don't even try to pretend they're objective.
Newsbusters has a rundown of recent exposures of the media.
Here's the first, in which NB reveals that statistically the White House refuses to call on FNC.
NB quotes Kirsten Powers' (generally an honest liberal) revelation that Obama doesn't like to answer real questions, something those of us in the cult already know.
KIRSTEN POWERS: Because he doesn't want to be embarrassed, really. Because when he's asked a question, the same way, you know, when Ed Henry asks questions in the, to Jay Carney, inevitably Jay Carney ends up looking stupid because he doesn't know how to answer the question. He’s used to pushing people around, and you know, it will be tenacious, he’ll get asked about something he doesn't want to get asked about, and he wants softballs.
He wants softballs so he gets softballs, like the numerous pictures (take a look at that link. Wow.) of Obama surrounded by a soft glowing halo, repeated over and over and over, not to mention the references to him as a "Lightbringer" and some sort of spiritual entity.
For most sane non cultists, these recurrent events are gaggable.
From the Washington Examiner, we get a first hand account of how the press behaves behind the scenes. We thought the sycophantic conformity was bad in public, but a Buzzfeed (NOT a conservative organization) columnist lets us get a peek at the way the press behaves to Obama when we're not around:
“The behavior of the assembled press corps was telling. Everyone, myself included, swooned. Swooned! Head over heels. One or two might have even lost their minds,” Hastings writes, as each reporter had a chance to speak personally with the president. “We were all, on some level, deeply obsessed with Obama, crushing hard, still a little love there. This was nerd heaven, a politico’s paradise, the subject himself moving among us — shaking our hands, slapping our shoulders!”
Hastings reveals that the president spent “over an hour” with reporters who later stayed up late buzz over every detail of the evening.
“Did this inform our reporting, did seeing the man in the flesh, in a somewhat staged and casual setting, provide new, deep, and lasting insights?” asks a reflective Hastings in his book. “Yes, I would say, but again, I’m not at liberty to share.”Then there's CNN undoubtedly objective "reporter" Tom Foreman, who's admitted to writing to The Prince every single day of the last four years, sometimes about...nothing... Here's an example of this bleg:
Inauguration Day will signal the culmination of an effort I launched on January 20, 2009, to write a letter to the White House every single day of Barack Obama's first term.
And I do mean every day. Weekends, holidays, when he was on vacation, and when I was on vacation. I wrote in my office, at home, in moving airplanes, cars, trains and even while running through the woods. I wrote early in the morning, in the middle of the day and late at night.
I wrote about things that were important, like unemployment, Afghanistan and women's rights. I also wrote about things that were trivial, like sports, favorite foods and my yearly battle with Christmas lights.
The tally: 1,460 letters, well over a half-million words, or enough to fill about seven novels. Laid out as one line of text, these letters would stretch almost 3½ miles or considerably longer than the inaugural parade route.Putting aside the bizarre imagery of a grown man writing a letter to the president while he's running through the woods, this giant brain of a man, who appears to be quite proud of his "achievement," concludes his last letter to The Prince with an acknowledgment that Obama
Krauthammer repeatedly calls out such behavior, as he did with NPR's Nina Totenberg who covers for Obama yet again. (kneepads, anyone?)
And then there's Newsweek's cover reference to Obama's second term as "The Second Coming." Newsbusters:
Linking God and Obama isn’t new for Thomas, once an Assistant Managing Editor and Washington Bureau Chief for the former weekly.
Back in June of 2009, naturally on MSNBC, Thomas asserted: “In a way, Obama’s standing above the country, above — above the world. He’s sort of God. He’s going to bring all different sides together.”The media--all the liberal media-- refuses to acknowledge Leftist wrongdoing or even the party of crooks like Mayor Nagin of New Orleans who is a Democrat, something they do on a regular basis, which means the Low Information Voters can continue to swoon in the face of Dear Leader, even while the words of opponents who ran against Dear Leader are proven to be true in spite of "fact checkers" who originally "proved" them "false".
The whole "fact checker" phase is a new method by the press to yet again impress on people just how earnest they are in reporting "the truth."
But checking the "fact checkers" proves that the "fact checkers" are simply arms of Leftist organizations to "verify" that Leftist candidates are always "right" and conservatives are almost always wrong.
Read this explanation of the purpose of and need for fact checkers at American Journalism Review and try to keep your breakfast down:
PolitiFact and other fact-checking ventures are filling a void in political reporting, says longtime Washington Post political reporter and columnist David Broder. "So often in the past, the voters have been left with nothing but a 'he said, she said' — there was no third source with an objective view," Broder says, asserting that reporters are the people best equipped to serve as the arbiters of truth.Got that?
Reporters are best equipped to be "arbiters of truth" according to the Left winger David Broder.
The same reporters who write Obama love letters every day.
The same "mainstream" reporters who compare defeating the NRA to defeating the Nazi party.
The same reporters--or better, the political director of CBS News--who write things like this:
"The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat."John Dickerson--political director of CBS News whose finger "slipped" a few years ago in slamming Bachmann-- says Obama should "pulverize" the Republican Party, and "declare war" on the same.
This MSM political director, the man in charge of objective reporters, is an example of someone who is an arbiter of truth for today's media.
Unfortunately once you start fact checking these fact checkers, you realize that the "fact checkers" are just Left wingers who've rearranged Titanic deck chairs to cover for their Left wing structures that are dying and losing credibility hourly.
No, the evidence here is pretty conclusive: PolitiFact disproportionately targets Republicans and leaps to so many inept conclusions that their entire enterprise is little more than a baseless attack on the political views of half of America. Forget “Pants on Fire.” The Scrapbook gives PolitiFact our most severe rating: “Flaming Dirigible.” The credibility of mainstream American journalism has long been on the same trajectory as the Hindenburg. When it comes to evaluating “fact checkers,” the only thing left to do is steer clear of the fiery wreckage.Thus the Leftist media has revealed itself for what it is: vicious aggressive partisans who will do anything to win.
They are the culmination of every sci-fi Orwellian story human beings have ever written.
And what's so amusing is the horde of "creative" wealthy, beautiful celebrities flooding Washington this weekend who decry the idiocy of people like us...those wealthy beautiful creative celebrities who are all the same, who have become cultish in their conformity to the wishes of The Prince.
Whose creativity has its source in conformity.
All those hippies who lamented and raged against the conformity of the masses have now become the most conformed conformists in our short history as a country, enslaved by one mind bent on making them all "love" by becoming the same. These conformists get to determine "truth," having replaced God Himself with the object of their affection..
Fat chance that's going to work.
Chick-Fil-A. Hobby Lobby. Gun Appreciation Day. NRA.
That we even exist in spite of the Left's possession of academia, the media, the political class and entertainment is remarkable.
Rock on, Americans.
We'll figure this thing out.
We are the Resistance.
