Media turning against O. and his minions?
I watched the debate on ABC news, and then afterward there was a bunch of “analysis.” The bright young anchors of that show were, openly, verging on expressions of contempt for Obama, and of respect for Romney. They were skeptical of the Democratic operatives who came out to spin the story afterward, and credulous toward the Republican operatives who did the same thing. The Republicans were treated as if they were merely speaking the truth, whereas the Democrats were explicitly told, at one point, “OK, good luck with that story.” This was stunning to me, a complete reversal of what we are used to seeing from the networks. First time I have ever seen that from MSM.
Thanks for posting this. It came out of an email exchange from my wife, who is on retreat in a remote location and had not seen any of the reactions from the pundits. She suggested that the “reaction might have happened because so many commentators hadn’t actually listened to Romney speaking previously and based their low opinion of him, and their exalted opinion of Obama, on spin from the Left Wing Machine. When forced to see both with their own eyes, the Truth prevailed.”October 5
I had always figured that the very liberal whites in the media must have deep-seated feelings of superiority to minorities, thus the savior complex and projection of racist motivations onto conservative whites that they exhibit. Is it possible that they have always worried Obama would be incompetent and embarrass them?
