While watching CNN while doing cardio, I noted yet again obvious bias of that “news” network, with Wolf Blitzer dwelling forever on a story that even the network’s own Jeffrey Toobin, obsequious legal court jester to the media elite, dismissed.
Based on one law professor who just happens to teach in McCain’s home state (a fact Wolf breathlessly reported), the network tried to resurrect the story that the presumptive Republican nominee may not be constitutionally eligible to serve (he was not born in one of the forty-eight states then admitted to the Union, but in the Panama Canal Zone, then a U.S. territory).
This has been asked and answered so many time that it seems the only reason Blitzer dwelled on this was to created doubts in people’s minds about John McCain. He’s just recycling old news for partisan advantage.
Seems it’s not just MSNBC which has become the “news” network of the Obama campaign.
And then there was Jack Cafferty wondering if Jesse Jackson’s latest outrageous statement would impact the rabble-rouser’s relevance.
C’mon, Jack, Jesse has been making outrageous comments now for a quarter-century and the media has nourished his ambitions by featuring him regularly while Democratic politicians continue to play court to the charlatan. Even your network, Jack, continues to feature the man.
The only reason he’s been “relevant” for so long is because media outlets like CNN fawn on the repeatedly-disgraced liberal activist.
He’ll only become irrelevant when new organizations stop paying attention to him and refuse to put microphones and camera in front of him whenever he demagogues some issue.
Would the media devote as much attention to a conservative preacher who repeatedly made mean-spirited comments and remarks which border on anti-Semitism? How would the media treat a conservative who headed a non-profit organization (which received money from the federal government) and used that organization’s funds to pay his mistress and support the child born of their affair?
