Will the media hound Barack Obama to admit he was wrong, like they did President Bush? Don't hold your breath. Obama first said the Christmas terrorist bomber was an isolated extremist acting alone. Now Obama says that Al Qaida was behind it. Will he be asked if he was wrong and if so will he admit it? Again, don't hold your breath. The media's arrogance, elitist concept and partisan bias is exceeded only by Obama's. You will note that not a single media report during all of 2009 talked about how the Senate was supposed to be the saucer that cooled the hot headed (hot air in the case of Cap and Trade), ideas coming from the House. And no mention either by the media of how Americans love divided government. Funny that we seemed to have heard the media repeat these themes repeatedly when there was a Republican president and when Republicans controlled both houses of Congress. Especially at time when Republicans were trying to fix/privatize Social Security, or make tax cuts permanent, or curb Barnie Frank's* efforts to loosen lending rules. And the list of issues the media chose to ignore in 2009 were strangely those who would reflect badly on Democrats; like ACORN/SEIU, Kevin jennings, the Tea Party Movement, NEA propaganda, Health Care Bribery, ClimateGate, the Bacchus affair, Van Jones, Anita Hill and the other extreme far left radicals in Obama's administration. But perhaps the most troubling omission is the apparent lack of any concern about the constitutionality of ANY of the major legislation pushed through Congress in the past year. Be it TARP, Stimulus, the health care takeover, and/or the thousands of pork spending projects that James Madison and his fellow Founders would find unrecognizable. And unconstitutional. The media, our vaunted "Fifth Estate," is supposed to be our bulkwark against tyrannical government excesses. Now, unfortunately, the media has become part and parcel with the forces from which they are supposed to protect us. Like Obama's administration, the media are extreme far left radicals and, therefore, a threat to, instead of a defense of, our freedom and liberty.
