I Have a Bit of a Problem With the Way the News Is Covered

Via a new favorite Patterico:

"When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard, innocuous little talk in the livingroom of those two legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. They were launching him--introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread. His "bright eyes and easy smile" struck me as contrived and calculated--maybe because I was supporting another candidate. Since then, I've never heard him say anything new or earthshaking, or support anything that would require the courage of his convictions. I only voted for him in this last race--because his opponent was a pinhead. And I've been mostly alone in my views. But maybe that's changing."
This post has since been removed, I wonder why?

I hold the media solely responsible for the ascendancy of Barack Obama. I've always had a mild disdain and aloof contempt for the likes of CBS, NBC, the New York Times, etc., but it has never developed into vitriol. I viewed these DNC mouthpieces from the perspective of an enlightened one. How could they hurt me? I bear the knowledge of the truth, what this country was, what it is, what it should be. I was firm in my principles and therefore confident that none of the trite rubbish they publish could affect me. I never imagined they could raise up a marxist like Barack Obama purely by their own machinations, while at the same time hiding his true identity. My naivete is gone, and along with it my detached amusement. All I feel now is complete, utter, hatred. I hate their smug condescension to the average American. I hate their pretense of objectivity. I hate their bold faced complacency in the collectivization of America. I hate their brazen distortion and suppression of facts. I hate their misrepresentation of opinion as fact. I wholeheartedly despise their gilded facade of professionalism. I take an unhealthy joy in every drop in ratings or circulation they endure. I just, unrepentantly, hate them.

I don't hate Barack Obama. I dislike him, and I despise his conscience misrepresentation of himself, but I don't hate the man. (FYI, I do and always have hated John McCain) I lay this all at the feet of the main stream media. Its one thing to be admittedly leftist. I don't begrudge anyone their opinion, but when you portray yourself as the objective arbiter of facts as you shoehorn a borderline trotskyite into the office of the Presidency while burying his true nature behind fluff pieces and pictures of him playing basketball, you aid and abet in the destruction of America as it was founded. That I cannot forgive. If Barack Obama is elected by an electorate with the understanding that he is a moderate, I shall become a swirling ball of seething hatred and vile repugnance. I pray it doesn't affect my objectivity, but I don't think I can supress this creeping revulsion that is wrapping itself around my soul. I fear that I won't be able to step away from the brink when socialism comes to America in an empty suit. Instead I'll willingly take the plunge into a deep, blood red, sea of frothing abhorrence. I'll be here blogging if you'd like to come along for the ride.

Your thoughts are my thoughts. My major *problem* with this election is the complete lack of journalistic integrity of most of the media. It has become SO blatant but yet our liberal friends sit back and say not a thing.

Last night I had dinner with some visiting friends. One said, "I think Sarah Palin is a dufus."

I calmly asked, "Why is that?"

"Well, for one thing, she doesn't believe in man-made global warming."

I responded, "I don't either, would you like me to give you an endless list of references that support my belief?"

"Well . . . no, that's okay."

He then went on to say that there were no Jews who died in the 9/11 attacks. When I got home I immediately did a search on Snopes and the official death list and found countless names that were clearly Jewish. I sent these to him but have yet to hear him admit how terribly misinformed he is.

What I feel most sad for you, my friends in the U.S., is that during the "Human Rights" Kangaroo Court proceedings earlier this year in Vancouver, so many Americans bragged about their free speech rights. I warned them to not be so complacent.

Sure enough, it now looks like Obama, Pelosi, and comrades are ready to enact the UnFairness Doctrine which will effectively shut up most of conservative talk radio. Yet not a thing will be done to MSM TV and PBS.

Then watch for "hate speech" cases to come against American bloggers.

Get ready for Obamanation, it's going to be a black period in your country's history. Excuse the pun but my statement has nothing to do with the colour of Obama's skin colour.

I never thought I'd see the day when Canada began to trend more conservative than America (even with Harpers seeming lack of a spine). The fairness doctrine will cause a massive backlash. Many Americans don't like Rush Limbaugh, but I think they'll be shocked when the libs literally shut him down. But like a lot of Obama policies, the damage could be permanent. That's why as unpleasant as it is I have to vote for John McCain. In America, we don't have the luxury of votes principle this year with a marxist on the ticket.
