Government Corruption and Media

Obama is a liar. We all know that but — to be honest — Obama does what politicians do. He just does more of it than any of them, previous. Anyway, while most of the ABC news reporters are in the tank for Obama, once again (I’ve said so here before) the one honest — as in tries to report the news without reflecting his personal bias — journalist they have, Jake Tapper, calls the Liar-In-Chief on the carpet:
Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.
[ . . . ]
In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency.
Previous programs involving ATF agents allowing guns to âwalkâ across the border so as to trace them were run during the Bush presidency, but not this particular âfield-initiated program.â
You know, I’ve read plenty of commentary about how hard-hitting the Univision interview questions were. The reporters there didn’t throw soft-balls. Maybe we should all stop watching/listening to/reading the Obama-cock-sucking “news reporters” from NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, the NY Times, WaPo, the LA Times, et cetera. Want real journalism? It seems that the honest newshounds are working at Univision.

Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few years, when Americans were already more negative about the media than they had been in years prior to 2004.
I’ll have to find a link to someone streaming Univision on the web . . .
