The Obama administration’s “up yours, journalists” philosophy in a nutshell

Posted by: ST on May 29, 2013 at 6:47 pm

From Democratic Party Communications Director Brad Woodhouse himself:


Gabriel Mailor gets to the heart of the matter:


Indeed. More answers from the administration are needed in this regard, but don’t hold your breath in waiting for honest responses.

AG Conservative expresses to Mr. Woodhouse what a lot of us think of his “opinion” on freedom of the press:


Absofreakinglutely.

For over four years, Team Obama have enjoyed a mutually beneficial and very cozy relationship with the mainstream media, but now that the scandals are hitting the administration in one big wave and the journalists in the MSM are being more or less forced to cover them or risk losing what tiny little shred credibility they had left, the relationship has now become decidedly one-sided, with only one side being “screwed.” And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see which side is on the, ahem, receiving end

Do I feel sorry for them>? Hell no. They were largely responsible for creating the monster that is the Obama “communications” machine. It’s spinning way out of control now, and it’s going to take a huge amount of effort I doubt we’ll see by the admin’s press enablers in order to turn back the clock (thank goodness for bloggers!). That being said, do I want to see a few of the more daring and bold in the media (like CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson) continue to dig deeper and deeper until the truth about all the various scandals is published nationwide in such a way as to leave NO DOUBT as to this administration’s massive efforts at widespread disinformation and deliberate deception to cover for their rampant corruption and flagrant disregard for the Constitution? Yes. How very fitting it would be to have all of Obama’s cards come tumbling to the ground, brought down by the very group that helped propel him to the Oval Office not just once, but twice.

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall …

    Three fatal facts of life about DC:

    1. If you are possessed with the desire for universal admiration, it is not the place for you.

    2. It is a very poor choice of cities in which to embark upon a career as an innocent bystander.

    3. Per Harry S. Truman, “If you want a friend in this town, get a dog.”

    It seems to me much of the media forfeited their “right to question” some time ago. In their arrogance, they not only took the stance of knowing better than we what the questions are, but they also indicated that, better than we, their answers were the correct ones.

    Now, the “creature” they’ve helped to create has entangled them in such a way that it’s becoming increasing apparent just how self-serving much of the media is. Now, their own tentacles – ones of biases, of a lack of integrity, of a lack of humble questioning, of service as a supporter of one ideology or another, or this politician over another, etc, – have ensnared them.

    Again, much of the media, not all, has acted in a manner that has betrayed this country. I hope they are attacked as if by a wild, caged animal. Maybe, we’ll be rid of them, as well as what they helped to spawn. Any tears and sadness on my part will be because of their contribution to the demeaning of our nation. And, to those to whom this applies, shame, shame on you!

    The MSM was happy to keep quiet and continue carrying the water for Obama as long as he stuck it to Fox News only as he did in so many ways the past 5 years.

    Now that they have discovered that Obama was also sticking it to them as well all this time while using them, suddenly they are incensed and want to be seen doing real journalism. What a laugh!

    There is nothing the MSM could ever say or do at this point that would redeem themselves as honest objective news organizations in the eyes of so many in this country. They will remain as nothing more that Democratic Party propaganda outlets if not forever, then for generations to come.

    The MSM over the past 4 1/2 years:

    Eric Holder and the New Black Panthers…MSM: Nothing to se here, move along.

    Obamacare buying senate votes…MSN: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Eric holder and Operation Fast and Furious…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Solyndra and other corporate cronies…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    LightSquared…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Extortion 17 (Where 30 US servicemen, of which 22 were Navy SEAL’s, were killed)…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Benghazi and a bull crap video…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Complaints by TEA Party groups about the IRS dating back to 2010…MSM: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Then the unthinkable:

    DOJ spying on the media…MSM: OMG, how horrible. This is Nixonian. AHHH!!! How dare they do this to us.

    Our MSM is a joke!!! Only when a story hits home do they give a crap!

    More appropriate, ST, is “Humper Dumper sat on a wall…”

    Now the COAM (Cover Obama’s Arse Media) is screaming because they just found out they are the current target-de-jour of Humper Dumper.

    What else should they expect? They gave all the marbles in the game to He Who Would Be King.
