Media: Lying, Ignoring The Truth, Arrogance is Ruining Liberal Voices

Since the election of Barack Obama last autumn, one word can best characterize liberal media and Democrat politicians: arrogance.

People usually can’t cruise around fueled only by arrogance for long.  And now it seems that liberal media and Democrats will have to learn a new survival skill: humility.

The New York Times is a case in point.  The Old Gray Lady has spun liberal news for so long that people just yawn when the paper is accused of a liberal “slant.”

But that paper went over the line by ignoring the Obama ties to ACORN, Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and others.

And sending a “newsman” to a president’s news conference armed with the question, “what did you find enchanting about the White House” is shameful.

We hope the New York Times gets purchased by the Taliban.  At least then we’ll all know why it is so “out there.”

Even Newsweek is completing a makeover: More Obama (just fewer readers).  Call it Newsweek Lite.


Anderson Cooper is just now realizing his ‘teabagging” remark was stupid, offensive and unnecessary?

He was supposed to be a news man?

The inability to fill dead air intelligently often leads to “blurting out the truth” and we all learn what the talking head really thinks about.

NBC has become the National Barack Channel.  Ditto MSNBC.

But when faced with viewers and readers complaints, liberal media either says they are unbiased or just giving the public what it wants.

New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller recently said:

“We are agnostic as to where a story may lead; we do not go into a story with an agenda or a preconceived notion. We do not manipulate or hide facts to advance an agenda. We strive to preserve our independence from political and economic interests . . . We do not work in the service of a party, or an industry, or even a country. When there are competing views of a situation, we aim to reflect them as clearly and fairly as we can.”

That’s bull.  From a deer in the headlights.

Victor Davis Hanson writes, “Perhaps the media doesn’t get it that the American people can more easily take the bias of an attack-dog, go-for-the jugular media that claims it is the watchdog of the public trust and therefore must skin the president, far more than such carnivores suddenly becoming sheepish and obsequious, as ministers of truth, rephrasing and repackaging the party line.”

“… it is quite astounding that the mainstream liberal media — NY Times, Washington Post, NPR, PBS, Time, Newsweek, etc. — has simply offered no substantive criticism of Obama’s flips on renditions, military tribunals, wiretaps, intercepts, Iraq, or — given their past fury over the Bush deficits — the Obama plan to run up more red ink in a year than Bush did in eight.”
