The Dishonesty of the Liberal Media
The sad truth is that there is really nowhere for those on the right to get honest news reporting
Oh the dishonesty of Democrats. The Internet is buzzing today with stories, left and right, of leading Dems making asinine statement alluding to assassinations and deaths of Republican leaders.
There's John Kerry in a cute little one on one with Bill Maher:
"MAHER: You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one
KERRY: Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone."
And the media yawned.
And then there's that doofus Ted Strickland who damn near took Ohio off the map with his botched job as governor, today, saying that the death of Antonin Scalia was good timing. Seriously?
And then there's Barack Obama, famous for never staying out of any situation, with these gems:
** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to supporters: “I’m itching for a fight.”
Obama to UAW mob: “Fight for me!”
Now....the left will rush and say none of these comments were actually meant to incite or to create violence or to insinuate or foment or instigate or provoke violence.
So if you believe that when Hillary Clinton brought up the fact that RFK was assassinated in June of 1968, in response to how much time there still was to beat Barack Obama in the 2008 election cycle, that she definitely wasnt actually CALLING for the assassination of Barack Obama. And if you believe that John Kerry was just kidding around when he mentioned to Bill Maher that he could go to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and kill GWB and if you believe that Ted Strickland was guilty ONLY of choosing his words poorly, and if you believe that Barack Obama just lost his temper a few times and made comments he shouldnt have....then.....
Isnt it possible that the same excuses used by the media for all of those Democrat leaders could also be used for Donald Trump and his comment yesterday about the 2nd Amendment and Hillary Clinton?
Or is it really just the same old double standard in this country that what the left does goes unnoticed and unreported by the vast and complicit left wing media?
A novel idea would be for CNN and MSNBC and other outlets to actually make a big deal out of the fact that Seddique Mir Mateen was actually sitting right behind HRC at her rally this week. This man who is the father of the Orlando shooter and who has ties to terrorist organizations and at last check was still under FBI investigation for possible involvement in the Orlando shooting was seated directly behind Clinton at one of her rallies!
Even the most liberal person in this country should be able to see how completely, utterly and totally inappropriate having this man at a rally for a presidential candidate, should be.
But, the famous words of Rahm Emmanuel ring in my ears as I type....."Never let a good crisis go to waste".
Translated: Just because he fathered a terrorist who killed 40 plus Americans doesnt mean that he cant help us with the Muslim vote.
Yet, the MSM spent about as much time on reporting that story as it takes to swat a fly.
It would be refreshing to see a presidential election in this country that was actually being reported fairly.
Should Trump have said what he said?
Maybe. Perhaps. I don't know.
Should Kerry have said what he said?
Should Strickland have said what he said?
Should Obama have said what he said?
Should HRC have said what she said?
If you're a "journalist" reporting for the likes of CNN and/or MSNBC, the answer is..."they didn't really mean it".

The Scalia comment was another unforced error for Strickland, who has gotten himself in trouble before with clumsy remarks.
