Media Refuses to Make Obama Pay Price For Lies

Media Refuses to Make Obama Pay Price For Lies

Other than his rather bizarre wistful recalling of how great things were in Nixon’s America, yesterday in an off-teleprompter stump speech, President Barack Obama told two humongous whoppers. First, he distorted the Clinton years, as though those years in any way resembled, well, what the Obama years look like this very day. Secondly, he twisted his very first campaign, the most Chicago-style of Chicago-style campaigns, into some sort of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington struggle — when he ran unopposed.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Over the airwaves and on the stump, Obama is currently running around the country portraying his opponent Mitt Romney as an outsourcer. This is a proven lie.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Obama told students that a bill to freeze student loan interest rates would save them $1,000 a year when it will only save them $87.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Just a few weeks ago it was revealed that Obama told no fewer than three-dozen falsehoods in his autobiography.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

We just learned that Obama lied about his relationship with a domestic terrorist.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

We just learned that Obama lied about his membership in socialist New Party.

And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

Sure, the media will defend itself by stating it reported on these falsehoods. But dutiful reporting and holding the President accountable are two entirely different things.

As recently as yesterday, this President ran around the country brazenly spouting things that are objectively untrue and, as it has always done in the past, the corrupt media adamantly refuses to make Obama pay any kind of political price for misleading the American people and distorting what is known to be true.  

First off, the media knows Obama will have to lie — will have to portray himself and his past and his record and his opponent’s record as something it is not in order to win reelection.

Secondly, as we’ve seen with Politico and Washington Post, the media sees its job as aiding and abetting and covering up this President’s lies.

Back in November, Romney ran this ad and the media EXPLODED for an entire week claiming Romney had taken Obama out of context. The media didn’t just explode, it went insane over this and was obviously grabbing hold of the lamest of excuses to help Obama define Romney as dishonest.

Meanwhile, Obama runs around the country a proven liar about his own biography, Romney’s record at Bain Capital, and his own record, and what do his Media Palace Guards do?

They just keep guarding his palace.

Good dog.
