Embarrassing media moments

Like now.  So CNN is all aflutter over the fact that ISIS.... no.  That Putin has... no.  That there is reason to believe our nation is stripping away rights and freedoms... no.  Uh uh.  CNN is all all aflutter over the fact that there was a party in Alaska at which a fight broke out and - get this - the Palins might have been there!  Woohoo! Scandal!  The actual segment said we didn't know for sure if any of the Palin family was in attendance.  At no point did they suggest Sarah Palin was there.  And for that matter, no real details about what happened were available.  And yet an entire segment is dedicated to this crisis.

In addition to the media's growing contempt for humanity and seeing human suffering as only important insofar as it advances the Liberal Agenda, we have this.  I'm not saying I would vote for Palin for president.  But the media rape that she and her family endured was a new low of lows, and it continues.  When the world is blowing itself half to hell and our clueless president only invests himself in the end to non-liberal values, we have the press sending its best and brightest to investigate and comment on this.  I don't care who would have run in 2008, nobody could have survived the reaming that Palin has received and come out looking good. 

All of this is worse, of course, when set in juxtaposition to the press's keen and penetrating examination of Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign (from an interview on the eve of the 2008 election): 

Are we ashamed of our media yet?


  1. When historians of the future look back on what caused America to collapse, it will be a lot like us looking at the fall of Rome - except I don't think they will be able to resist the urge to burst out laughing.

  2. I think you're right. I don't think we will inspire much respect from future historians.
